    Just signed up Jock, happy to be a member of the community. Had my best ranking ever this year thanks to the wisdoms of the community. Love what you stand for :) Bigger and better in 2015. Go Cats

  2. Kev says:

    Finished the season a 3x premier with a 2,464 and a rank of 6,390 overall. Couldn't have done it without you, Jock. You, the community, and the contributors to this site have been absolutely top notch all year. Marvellous effort that.

    Things that worked for me:
    My starting midfield line (Ablett, Pendles, Rockliff, Libba, Beams, Cotchin, Macrae, Polec) – It was pricy but it paid off. These guys did the bulk of my scoring early on which allowed me to upgrade other lines. Only Injury forced Ablett and Beams out, and Polec and Macrae made me good coin.

    Not jumping on flash-in-the-pan type players – Tried to stick with players who were proven and had runs on the board. I can only think of Miles and S. Martin who went from mid price to reliable premium.

    Having 4 trades for the finals – It's said every year and it's bloody true. Trades this time of year are GOLD. The carnage over the past 4 weeks is testament to this rule.

    What didn't:
    Not much to be honest. One player was Luke Breust, could never seem to get rid of the bloke. Teased with midfield time but never again for me. Same goes for The Chad, up and down year and kept hoping he'd string some consistency together. I blame keeping him on my man crush on the bloke.

    Things to look at in 2015
    Swing sets – Didn't use them well enough this year.
    Better bench coverage.

    Thanks again Jock. Enjoy the off season and see you in 2015!

  3. Mozz says:

    I finished the year with 2503. Used my last trade to turn boomer into Malceski, but then was out saturday night and didn't see Rockliff and Zorko out. Thank god I had bartel on the bench!!
    Ranked this week 850 and climbed into the top 1,000! Feeling so good even though i missed out qualifying for the JR division leagues by 300 points.

    Feeling confident that next year will be the big one :)

  4. Paul says:

    Hi jock and the community. I won the J.R community F. L . I couldn’t have won it without all the analysis and prediction from everybody. I like to thanks everyone for all the contribution. I ranked 416 in the overall league and won 3 premier. Thanks again and looking forward to heard again in 2015. Bigfatasian.

  5. throttlefinger says:

    What a wild episode! Insights, wisdoms, feel-good stories, brotherly squabbles and, last by not least, anal insertion throwdowns! Lordy!

    Lekdog's admittance even had me close to shedding a drip or two. Thank god your crazy accent prevents such things in us Americans.

    Think many of Jock's and Higgo's insights would be great reminders for 2015 selection. Fyfe will definitely come with a Buyer Beware label.

    And then there's the PIP Ice Cube Challenge to benefit those afflicted with ass grapes. I recorded my PIP but the ice cube mixed with the high humidity of my crapcutter produced stray waters that, unfortunately, short circuited my recording device. Fortunately I was able to capture what transpired. Here's my PIP ice cube challenge transcript:

    "Yo quiero TAAAAAAAAAAAAAACO BELLLLL!"

    Hope that satisfies your challenge, Jock. I nominate Wombats, SCaddict and General Soreness.

    Great season community. Look forward to 2015!

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Your an awesome fella Throttle. I posted a photo of your can in FB. Enjoy! I’ve leant my lesson with Fyfe. Enjoy your off season

      • throttlefinger says:

        Saw it and loved it, INP. Enjoy your season off as well. Look forward to talking 2015 season with you at the beginning of the year.

    • General Soreness says:

      Throttle your input, wisdoms and most of all good humour from the otherside of the globe is outstanding and a large part of what makes this community what it is. Very much looking forward to talking 2015 season with you.

      • throttlefinger says:

        That means a lot coming from you, General. I take great pride and enthusiasm in belonging to this community because of all the quality dudes and dudettes. Makes it worth the bags under the eyes and the cranky weekends.

        Have a great off-season and eager to swap wisdom at start of the year.

  6. Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

    Great season fellas & ladies. With only 18 players I made the last ditched move of Griffen as Captain. Was going to go Sauce & I'm glad I didn't. Tin ass victory but Net result 3 x flags 1 x cash grab 1 x bender & Boss if your reading this see you Thursday!

    • General Soreness says:

      Congrats INP and thanks for your great contributions and humour always fun. Look forward to discussing 2015 with you and the rest of the community. Planning has started :)

      • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

        Thanks General. It's great fun. Didn't you reap havoc in the end there. Planning for 2015 has begun & "I'm trainging the house down" already

  7. Derek says:

    Managed a Premiership (league ranked 160) happy with that, but was two troops down with Donuts for Suckling and Franklin. Needed some luck, Had Gray as VC who scored a nice 124, but went the Nic Nat as C, he pulled out a beautiful 145 and got me home.

    What was people's league rankings who won premierships?

    • General Soreness says:

      Great result Derek! Plums the size of melons chucking the C on Nic Nat and its probably why you are rank 160.

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Hello Derek. I suggested Nic Nat as a good C option on Friday, given GC don't have a ruckman. Well played sir. 3 Flags for me. Wrapt!

      • The Filth says:

        No flags for me – three losing GFs. Finished 27th overall…
        2nd in JR Qualifiers Group
        2nd in Too Serious Group
        2nd in Supercoach Scores Group…

        Bloody tonsilitus…

        • General Soreness says:

          27th overall is massive! Congrats Filth. Although I am sure you are literally Filthy regarding the GF results.

          • The Filth says:

            Thanks General, my disappointment is gradually disappearing.
            Bit like the Pies of old – touch of the dreaded collywobbles on GF day!

  8. julz says:

    Lost all 3 grand finals unfort due to late outs including one HF against the hubby by a measly 17pts, him with a full team and me with 2 donuts and a pathetic 20 from super sub (or should that b spud) Shenton!

    On flip side finished ranked 1635 my best effort yet and I vow to b better in 2015, no wasting trades and getting some better backup!

    Thanks Jock, Crouching, Higgo and the beloved community fir your help and inspiration this year! :)

    • The Filth says:

      Aaargh – sorry to hear you lost to Hubby, Julz.
      I was really hoping you would get over the line.

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Sorry to hear that Julz. Great Rank though. Fantastic season. We will fix your hubby up next year. Who did you use your last trade on? I hope it wasn't Goddard like I suggested. If so I'm heading to the naughty corner.

      • julz says:

        No i decided against Goddard and Mundy as I didn’t trust them. Decided to get Mumford through the magic of DPP as i had S Martin as a ruck so swung one of my fwds into mid, martin to fwd.
        My hubby had Mumford and i thought this was a smart move to nullify a potential match winner.
        Late out of Buddy and Zorko killed me, both my fwd emergencies in CCameron/ Lennon dropped this wk which didn’t help!
        Thanks for your help anyway guys! Now just have to stare at hubbys A3 size SC premiership certificate (complete with pictures of his PODs stuck round the side) which is up on the fridge for the next year! BOO!!!

  9. carlashirley90 says:

    Another year ends community but i don't want it to be over yet. I would like to have a Super Coach discussion regarding cheap options for 2015. Call it the "Under Over Players" (under performed this year but expected to go over what they averaged next year.)

    I will start with my top 3 picks for next year:

    #1 Ryan Griffen 19 games average 98.7

    he has been a 105+ player for the last 3 years but this year he never looked match fit when coming in for first game in round 2. his first 2 games this year was a 63 and a 49 ouch but he would score his lowest SC points in round 14 against Port Adelaide yelping out a 47. He still scored 90+ points 13 times out of his 19 games though he only got over 120 points 3 times, his last game as you know a 189. I expect him to be back to 105+ next year.

    #2 Andrew Swallow 15 games average 93.1

    He has been a 100+ player for the last 4 years and this year like Griffen had an interrupted preseason. First game was round 9 and his first 3 games back were 67, 59 and 87 to be expected right? Well i have taken away his first 3 games in which he was getting the feel for high tempo footy again and his average was still pretty low at 98.6. I am a little concerned about his injuries now given the fact he only played 17 games last year too but if he does play 20 or more next year and with no problems before round one expect him to get back to 100+ next year.

    #3 Nic Naitanui 20 games average 90.8

    To me this could be the best cheap option for next year because Cox has retired this means Nic Nat is the n.o.1 ruck for the Eagles. Not much to say about his past years except for 2012 when he averaged 114.2 and last year when he played only 11 games but apart from that he has actually played 20+ games since 2010. If he has a clean preseason expect him to hit 100+ next year.

    Community reply here to give us your thoughts. I for one am intrigued to whom to consider as the ones to jump back in 2015

    Rockliff
    Priddis
    Ward are proof that players can bounce back
    Gray
    Beams

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Very Impressive Carla. I think your on the money with Griffen & Nic Nat. Think they will be undervalued based on injury restricted seasons. Certainly at the top of my shopping list. Hoping Jobe is discounted due to injury as well. Thinking Rockcliffe is a must have next season, he's an animal. Only deterance is he might cost more than Abblett,

      • carlashirley90 says:

        Agree Rocky is a must
        Ablett i might grab after round 5-6
        Watson is on the radar too

        • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

          Watch Abblett's role in the pre season. If he starts going forward then that's a great strategy. If he's still a pure mid still he's an absolute must.

          • General Soreness says:

            Over the years have seen many a coach not take Ablett early thinking he will drop in price. Across those same years seen many people upend their whole team to then try and get him in when the price drop is marginal. As INP points out, he is an absolute must.

          • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

            And when he does go forward he will probably win the Coleman & average 160! You have to have him. Know a few people who didn’t start with him & they didn’t fare well. And if he does become a permanent forward scoring low you can trade him round 3 if you dare!

            • WombatsFC says:

              Currently I'll be starting with
              Swallow, Hanley and who cares x4
              Gaz,Rock,Pendle, plus the best 4 premo mids from preseason and Jack Martin
              Sauce plus the best ruck from preseason
              R.Gray and who cares x5

              • jockreynolds says:

                Just posted your inspiring PIP Challenge effort up the top in the post Wombats. You are a warrior in the fight against the silent grape mongrel – Haemrhoids.

                • WombatsFC says:

                  Thanks Jock I do whatever I can for a worthy cause and I've always believed that the only way to improvement is to to continually step it up a notch.

                  The photo was lookin a bit like a fruit salad due to the plums and banana hangin down below the small bunch of grapes so, I had to paste the famous jumper over the bits that might scare the kiddies.

                  The industrious viewer will be able to locate the massive wombats jatz crackers through the ice

              • carlashirley90 says:

                Agree that the forward line is getting real hard to pick a strategy with.

                i think i will go with this

                def: x2 premo Hanley, Simpson
                mid: x6 premo Ablett, Rockliff, Pendlebury, Cotchin, Griffen, A.Swallow
                ruck: x2 premo Jacobs, Naitanui
                fwd: x2 premo Gray, Martin (again!)

              • jockreynolds says:

                Will be an interesting study to see how a similar structure might have panned out this season. A lot of reliance on rookies early.. might get Higg to get onto that

            • carlashirley90 says:

              Ablett will be $$$ Because he still played a lot of games with that huge average.
              Next year i see a lot of people trying to stuff him in with Rockliff next year :)

              • throttlefinger says:

                He will be pricey for sure. And for good reason. I left him out the last two years and paid the price. When you look at Barron's standings for top Captain points, Gazza won pretty handily…while missing 1/3 of his games. That says he's worth it.

                Also, Rockliff only hitting 18 games is a warning sign. May go Selwood instead. Game keeps getting stronger and stronger. No let up in him.

        • Jambo says:

          I will hold on Ablett until he proves to me that he's 'back'. I reckon I might stay away from Pendlebury next year and bring in Matt Priddis and Rory Sloane. Carla, excellent point on Griffen. He is another must. I will wait until Rockliff plays in a team with Redden and Rich etc to see whether they affect his output. JPK is another to consider. I reckon Brent Stanton is one to look at for the first half of the season. Always starts the season on fire.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Sensational work Carla! Great research. I'll be thinking very seriously about Ryan Griffin next season. Provided he gets through a full and solid pre season he'll be right up there in calculations

      • carlashirley90 says:

        Thank you Jock, Higgo has inspired me to do statistical analysis on some players who dropped off this year. Looking for value already :)

    • MightyDonsFC says:

      Please do more of these! Awesome article

    • David says:

      Well done Carla so you got all the info from Footywire? Nice research!!!
      Yeah i reckon all 3 should bounce back next season especially Griffen

    • throttlefinger says:

      Love this list, Carla!. And agree with it

      Thinking along the lines of Mick's wisdom…get the midfield to prem first.

      DEF Hanley + top DPP, undervalue prem + 3 rooks
      MID Gaz (won Barron's cap title…missing 1/3 of games!), Pendles, Selwood (iron horse, no late outs), 4 prems or burgeoning prems (Treloar is one. Think Dom Tyson is a sneaky big pick). 1 rook
      RUC Sauce/Goldstein + other prem (and have a starting yet low price DPP or back up on bench)
      FWD 2 top preseason DPPs, undervalue prem + 3 rooks

      • carlashirley90 says:

        yep i want Ablett, Rockliff and pendlebury locked in and bring in 3 cheap but proven midfielders
        the likes of Cotchin, Griffen and Swallow

        • throttlefinger says:

          Those 3 will be in the mix for sure. Slightly favoring Lids over this cohort. Others I'm thinking about is Treloar, Macrae and, maybe, Hanneberry. But we're of the same mind as far as approach.

      • The Filth says:

        One rookie in the mids might be a little light on Throttle.
        Depending on the quality of the rookies next season, I think you need more rookie mids for cash generation and upgrades.
        Hanley, Gaz, Pendles, Selwood and sauce are all required players for my team next season. I may do what I did this year – lock in Gaz and Selwood and get Pendles around round 6 as an upgrade so that I have extra cash to play with for my initial team. Need to see the prices, mult-position capabilities and the draw before deciding.

        • throttlefinger says:

          Don't know Filthy. How many quality mid rooks were there this year? MdDonald, Crouch, Dunstan and Aish. Maybe Billings. Not a great crop. And many took their sweetass time reaching a good trade value.

          Think getting the midfield to prem as quickly as possible will be the strat next season. That's where the most reliable points come from. But may do Pendles or Rocky later depending on byes and such.

          Another thing I'm going to do next year is ensure there is ruck backup. If one goes down, there will be coverage. Ryder and Mummy gave me major headaches this season.

          • The Filth says:

            I was lucky with the rucks – had Sauce and Sandi from the start and Derrick on the bench who actually got a gig at one stage as coverage.
            Mid rookies – had Tyson, Polec and Dunstan onfield 1st round – luckily each scored over 100. Crouch and Aish on the bench M7 & M8.
            McDonald, Langford and Langon in defence – D6 D7 & D8.

            Midfield rookies normally get higher scores than their counterparts in defence/forward and are more plentiful. They appreciate in value quicker for rookie ramps so you can earn cash quicker. I figure I am more likely to bleed points in other positions early on playing rookies onfield.

            • throttlefinger says:

              Definitely a smart strategy for next season. Put true rooks on the bench to cover and for trades then put 2nd year rooks on the field. The front and back lines are always inconsistent, baring the few DPP players like McV, Hanley, Gray and Parker.

              Just want my most proficient position to be fully stocked sooner rather than later. The other positions we'll just have to see who's in great form and throw them on.

            • The Filth says:

              Ooops – should be M9 & M10 obbviously ;)

            • Mike says:

              I'm with you on that. Not sure why everyone's talking rookies up in backline and forward? They seldom score well. Perhaps it's some kind of red herring?

  10. THE SALTSHAKERS says:

    Finished 7093rd for year, traded aggressively was top 1500 after bye rounds managed them well, had poor 2nd half cut down by injuries, limped home won 2/4 league GFs

    2146th in DT
    2906th in AFL FANTASY

    Next year lookiing to get as close to

    Swallow Hanley McVeighh, Malceski
    Rocky, Gaz, Pendles, fyfe
    Jacobbs Goldy
    Parker buddy danger gray boomer

    With A.Selwood cheap

  11. MightyDons says:

    I too have started my research for next year, and decided I'll try to get as close to this starting lineup as possible

    Hibberd Walker Birchall Swallow Waters
    Rocky Griffen Crouch Watson J.Selwood Swallow
    Nic Nat Berger Redden
    Titch Gray Wingard Buddy

    Also considering Parker and Danger (if they're forwards) Dusty, Lobbe, Goldy, Cotchin and S.Selwood

  12. Matteus says:

    was ranked 513 after round 20… anyway. injuries struck, and with no trades left, I had a few donuts over the next 3 rounds (including 7 in my grand finals…) and promptly fell to 2574 at the season's end. Stark contrast to my mate, who was ranked outside the top 1000 at round 20 and finished at 187 total (including a 700 point trashing of me in the grand final)… despite this, it was still successful, so thanks for the great year jock and co! See you beautiful people in 2015!

  13. David says:

    Jock! Carla's article is awesome! I think you should set up a poll for 10 players who under performed this year and potentially but expected to be back to their old ways next year, what do you think?

    Oh and call it Carla's poll dance :)

  14. jockreynolds says:

    Read Carla's contribution community – inspiring preseason research. Gets me to thinking – who'd be keen to crank a few preseason player review write ups for the preseason? Why bloody wait? Full post for each article, I'd send around a template so you know how to set it out.. anyone keen? I'm already gagging to get into 2015 a break can go and get stuffed

  15. Gab says:

    boys i know its not the real thing but would love some input into the super coach finals teams !!
    i got a $250 between 4 of us and would love to take home the money !!!

    Also awesome work by carla and everyone and can't bloody wait till preseason 2015 super coach !!!!!
    Cheers Jock

    • General Soreness says:

      Supercoach finals team with that salary cap results in Mid Pricer Madness. Might as well head down to the local and play chook lotto.

  16. Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

    If Tom Mitchell changes clubs & retains the Mid/Fwd swing he needs to be considered. He burnt me this year, but at some stage he will be a gem.

    • General Soreness says:

      He burnt me as well. Especially when it was a choice between titch and parker and I went titch. Swing sets invaluable.

      • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

        I had the same choice to General. I should have listen to Johhny Brewin of the Dimma Wits when he said go Parker over Mitchell. He was spot on. Never doubt the champ. Lesson learnt.

        • The Filth says:

          I changed from Mitchell to Parker just before kickoff in the 1st round – big difference to my season…
          Fell for the Daisy hype in the mids and Rohan as F6 but got rid of them early thank goodness.

          It is interesting to do a review of your season using the 'team history' in supercoach and showing your team round by round..

          • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

            Would have made a huge difference in my season. But we live & learn. Well done on your rank Filthy. Right up there at the pointy end. I’m doing some end of season analysis. Some stand out bad trades. But some really good ones too. But I have noticed lots of trades were neither here nor there!

  17. The_Darwin_Ducks says:

    Thanks Jock and the community i had a great year!!
    Finished with my best rank to date and i am keen for next year already!
    If anyone wants to join my Superocach Finals league my code is

    233267

  18. big aggots says:

    Young Jack Martin played final few games up forward and scored well. Hoping he gets DPP in 2015 and around $300K. This is a seriously exciting kid who also tackles hard!

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      I noticed that as well. He will probably come in at one of those awkward priced players. DPP would make that more interesting. If he puts on some more size worth a look.

  19. Kristofor says:

    Hey all. Is anyone playing Supercoach Finals?
    What are your thoughts on some lock in players?
    It's a tight budget!
    Lake at 200k could be a bargain?
    Tippett at 300k?

  20. MightyDonsFC says:

    Anyone else want to post their sc finals team? Mines below

    Chicken SMitchell Birchall Enright
    JPK Barlow Caddy Wingard
    Titch Walters Taberner

    Subject to change…

  21. Mozz says:

    Here's my first attempt at my SC finals team. Subject to A LOT of change

    Enright, Mitchell, Lake
    Selwood, Chapman, Caddy, Turner
    Goldstein
    Wingard, Thomas, Walters

    Really unsure about these picks, but i'm thinking about which players will go BANG during finals. Exactly why i have gone with Wingard, Lake, Chapman & Thomas

  22. Joey Jo Jo says:

    Who are going to be the SC relevant bargains for 2015? Based upon discounting due to number of games missed, I would think the following are going to have to be great value for money and feature in many starting teams:

    Ablett
    S Selwood
    Rich
    Leuenberger
    Redden
    Stevie J
    Rioli
    Watson (if not out with the rest of the Essendon…)
    T Mitch
    O'Keefe (if he finds a home)
    Walters
    Nicholls

    Any others?

    Still can't understand why players prices don't go down if they miss matches during the season… A players worth is surely affected by how often they play – they need to revise the system to create more strategy around what to do with injured players…

    • MightyDonsFC says:

      There's countless! Griffen, Swallow, Kreuzer, Natanui, Steven, Crouch, Wingard (possibly) etc

      • Sam says:

        Griffen, Natanui and Wingard played most of the year (the later played all of it). No discount on those. Might be undervalued if they can turn their form around, but won't be cheap because of missed games.

        Kreuzer is the big one there. Looks like it will be mid-pricer madness with Luey, Nicholls and Kruze all dirt cheap next year.

        Agree on the comment about prices changing for games missed – a discount like 5% of value per game missed would be a good introduction.

        • MightyDonsFC says:

          Sorry didn't read the full statement about those who've missed games, though it was just about cheap pickups! Hickey, Kreuzer, Leuenburger and Nicholls should provide some ruck headaches next year

    Supercoach should look at having 24 scoring players but only count the best 22 scores. This would assist with the early season subs situation & late withdrawals. D7 & F7 on the ground maybe.

      The herald sun should do a survey for the players of SC. They’ve lost 150,000 players in 2 years! Like that idea Aggots

    • Sam says:

      They need to do something with the subs… Maybe exclude a players score from price calculations for the round if they are subbed. That way, you don't end up with players prices imploading just because they were subbed.

    Community,

    It's been a fantastic year for me. Not only did I finish around 8,000 and won 2 GF's, I found this amazing community. It's been great chewing the fat with guys like Throttlefinger and Wombats and reading tips and tricks from all the community especially SC Addict, Pieman, and General Soreness. All the best for the pre season and I look forward to more SC in 2015.

    Cheers

    Jack Steven
    2013 season in review:
    In a weak Saints team, which finished the year 16th with 5 wins, Jack Steven was among the few shining lights. He had a breakout year, which he was rewarded for by taking out the Trevor Barker Award (St.Kilda's best and fairest), he received 8 Brownlow votes and a place in the 40 man All Australian extended squad. With lighting pace he was able to break games open, however it was his consistency that made him look like one of the saints, and the AFL's, brightest midfield prospects. Steven only went under 20 disposals on two occasions in a year which he played every game! He led the saints for contested possessions, handballs, goal assists and clearances whilst coming 2nd in inside 50's, tackles and kicks. He also contributed 16 goals. Jacks highest Supercoach score for the year was 161 and his lowest 78, furthermore highlighting his consistency.

    2013 averages:
    Disposals: 26.9 Contested possessions: 10.9 De%: 70.4 Marks: 3.8 Clearances: 5.4 Rebound
    50's: 1.5 Tackles: 4 Inside 50's: 3.9 Goals: 0.7

    2014 Season in review:
    After an excellent 2013, St.Kilda fans would've been happy with last years numbers again. However, 2014 proved to be a backwards step for the one of the Saints brightest midfield prospects. With NDS departing to North Melbourne and Joey Montagna in questionable form, the oppositions shut down men went to Jack on some occasions. Another explanation for his lacklustre season would be missing a lot of his pre season and the start of the season with a broken foot. Because of poor form, he was dropped in round 16 before being recalled as the sub in round 19. Although Steven experienced a tough season, he should be better for the experience in that he now knows he may be the shut down target of opposition and in 2015 he should be better equipped to handle it.

    2014 averages:
    Disposals: 23.1 Contested possessions: 8.6 De%: 68.7 Marks: 2.6 Clearances: 4.5 Rebound 50's: 1.8 Tackles: 4.6 Inside 50's: 3.6 Goals: 0.5

    2015 prediction:
    With a full pre season under his belt, I see Jack returning to his goal kicking hard running midfield best. This also is beneficial for us Supercoaches, because he should stand in good stead to average around the 105 mark. Because he played 17 games at an average of 84.8, he should cost around 430k.

    Ps: Sorry Jock, couldn't find your guidelines for the player reviews/analysis so I decided to go it alone.

    Good start to SC Finals for me – 789 from 5 – Jelwood as captain pulled in 453 pts alone!
    SMitch 137, Langford 79, Ceglar 72 all performed above expectation.
    Caddy my only dud – only 48 – is he about to take Greg Broughton and Jack Watts' title of Ultimate Burnman?
