Supercoach 2014: Exclusive interview with Al Paton

Filed in Supercoach, Supercoach 2014, Weekly Podcast by on December 15, 2013 • views: 6108

Jock Reynolds PodcastAl Paton loves his Supercoach. No doubt about that.

And as the News Corp and Fox Sports Australia digital AFL editor he is as close to the coalface of the Supercoach form of the game as it gets.

He is best known here in Melbourne town for coordinating the troops at the Herald Sun Superfooty site, working with the likes of fellow Supercoach fanatics Jay Clarke, Sammy Edmund and Mark “Robbo” Robinson.

Unlike many big wigs in similar positions, Al has his finger fairly and squarely in the Supercoach pie and knows his stuff. Not only does Al share his insights into the battle between Supercoach and AFL Fantasy/Dreamteam, but as a dedicated student of the game himself he is a Supercoach force to be reckoned with in his own right.

And let me tell you – he has some big news for the Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy community tonight about the Supercoach form of the game in 2014.

Enjoy the show. Look forward to the community discussion below

    Al handled himself like a superstar, fantastic interview gentlemen.

  2. Bring back old Herbert says:

    Interesting stuff!

    90,000 more SC than DT…. makes sense.

    Thanks Guys

    • jockreynolds says:

      You're very welcome mate and thanks for the comment. I've been meaning to check in old old Herbert you know – we will have to get him to ring in on one of the upcoming shows eh

  3. throttlefinger says:

    Mobile for free! Great news, Jock.

    And good insights about upcoming differences. Going back and forth about trying DT or just keeping the brain on my 2 SC leagues.

  4. lostlarrikin says:

    Awesome stuff guys.
    Interesting comments on the bunching together of players at each end of the spectrum.
    Wondering if this pricing structure will influence how quickly cows might moo or the ceiling price on elites thro the season. Could make upgrade timing even more tactical.

  5. Ideasman says:

    Jock,
    In regards to repairing or replacing the flapping tarp, have you asked Eddie Betts what he did with his Carlton shorts?

  6. Great podcast boys, keep up the good work. :)

  7. Benno says:

    Glad to see the rolling lockout stay. I know a small minority did complain about it, but then I rememeber the previous year and the majority would complain every time a player was a late out and couldn't change it. App being free is great news, as well as the best 18 rule during MBR staying. Good stuff yet again fellas, Cheers

  8. mick says:

    if they knew that much then they will be winning the 50 grand every year

  9. The Doctor says:

    Hey Jock, any early thoughts on Robin Nahas? He's pretty cheap (212k from memory) and at a new club he might get more of a run.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Mate this is exactly the kind of player that many will consider this season – especially when comparing him to a rookie who has never played the game who will cost more coin! Personally I wouldn't consider Nahas unless he pulled some serious form out of his pip in the preseason, but I think you're on the job mate.

    • Doctor, if you're going in that small forward direction, also consider Ben Kennedy and/or Troy Menzel as well. Both in that 220K range, both played senior footy last year and both potentially have full time spots opening up for them by other players departing (Didak and Krakouer for Kennedy, Betts for Menzel).

      • The Doctor says:

        Onya lads. I'm not sold on "Dicky Knee" Menzel with his and his brothers knee issues, but Ben Kennedy is an option. Its to early to tell but I think I'll keep an eye on him, if he has a good nab cup and starts round 1 I might consider him. He's 26, he knows how to find the ball, kick goals and he averaged 86 in 2011. Who knows maybe there wont be many forward rookies starting in round 1.

  10. Rayza Ray says:

    Any news on trades we still going in with 30 again? For me 4 to many.

  11. jimbotraralgon says:

    Anyone thinking 519k seems a little high to risk on a recovering nic Nat?

    And Barron..I know you will get to them soon enough but most interested in what your spies have seen of one geelong ruckman, McIntosh.

    • Hey Jimbo, funny you mention Geelong as I was just spending the day going through my research for their article!

      Spies tell me McIntosh is tracking pretty well so far this pre-season. Came back early to training early with the 1-4 year players in an effort to maximize his fitness for the start of the year and he should be ready for the NAB Cup, which will be great since it means we get to take a look at him before we lock in our Rd 1 sides. Has been training with Dawson Simpson in the rucks, from the sounds of it they plan on playing Vardy up forward to replace Podsiadly and McIntosh and Dawson as the rucks. The fact they traded Trent West, who's average, but the one bigman for the Cats who's managed to stay healthy means they're probably feeling confident with their big stocks being healthy in 2014.

      The biggest issue for McIntosh now is going to be the mental one. You can do all the training drills in the world, but it's not going to be able to replicate the rigors of an actual game. I'm not expecting him to jump out and immediately score in that 90-100 range he averaged he has previously, but once he gets same games into his legs then I reckon he'll be good to go.

  12. George says:

    Hey community, please help me with my ruck situation! I have no idea who to choose, and so far the only lock for me is Nankervis a bench cover! Can I please have your thoughts on Grundy, Sandilands, Minson, Longer, Appeness, Lobb and any other ruckmen you guys like?

    Cheers, George

  17. Yes, for those who’d studied body language, seeing Simpson being
    able to lie without showing signs of lying was a scary enough
    prospect. But Peterson is right up there in the
