    • Carleton says:

      How did you steal my team??

    • ian says:

      This is the problem…so many teams will be almost the same…..I have 26 of your 30 CD96 !! The key to this year will be rookie upgrades

  2. Derek says:

    Like this if you want crouching one to be revealed


    Thoughts on my team would be much appreciated!
    Strong emphasis on keepers with the exception of the rucks.

    S. Docherty, R. Laird, J. Howe, (T. Stewart)
    T.Adams, C. Hampton, E. V-Willis (Z. Guthrie)

    P. Dangerfield, D. Hannebery, L. Neale (H. Wigg)
    A. Treloar, N. Fyfe, D. Beams (J. Pickett)
    S. P-Pepper, J. Barret (B. Parfitt)

    A. Sandilands, J. Witts (D. Cameron)

    N. Riewoldt, L. Dalhaus, J. Macrae (L. Strnadica)
    T. Greene, D. Butler, D. Houston (B. Eddy)

    • Big Daz says:

      Get rid of J. Macrae , Parfitt to fwd line and add another mid premium.

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      I'd disregard the advice above, any more than 2 rookies o/f fwd is suicide. I prefer Jelwood and Rocky to Neale but hey, strong defense bud…especially with what could be carnage at the table this week…. looks right at those running 2-0-6 defense. I am running D3 M7, which would require another breakout contender like Crouch unless you go Doc to Titch. Bring on the team sheets.

  4. Baz says:

    Thoughts on my team guys would be much appreciated.

    DEF Docherty shaw laird Hampton EVW Otten (Stewart Guthrie)
    MID Dangerfield Pendles JPK Fyfe tmitchell beams O'Meara SPP (Barrett Hibberd partiff)
    RUCK Gawn goldy (strandica)

  5. Toby one kanobi says:

    Tobias or not Tobias

    Thoughts on Toby Greene community?

  6. Toby one kanobi says:

    Also Tuohy or nah?

    • Lazza says:

      The guy Tuohy is replacing was an absolute gun …. who struggled to average 100 in better teams…. so how can anyone expect Tuohy to outperform Enright.???

      • Leeds17 says:

        If you are picking him thinking he'll go 100+ then yeah huge trap! personally at his price & the role I think he'll play I'll be happy and expecting around 92-95.

    • @wheels_1987 says:

      nah, i didnt go there… too many people locking him in and i have a feel that it may be a trap

  7. TPA says:

    What's everyones go with the Ruck combo lads?

    • Mitch says:

      R1 – Gun R2 – Mid Pricer
      That's looking like the best way to go

    • Mgross says:

      Hickey and Sandy

    • Swans2012 says:

      I think I'm sticking with gawndilands, Easy to downgrade Gawn if not tearing it, impossible to find cash early on to get him in if you don't have him to start. Happy to risk a trade to see the true effect of spencer, at least I am now, plenty of time to change my mind (again) in the next 2 days.

    • @t_woof says:

      Right now Stef Martin and Sandilands.

    • everyone says:

      Could have just asked me mate, no need to have the community spying on me

  8. Joshua farrugia says:

  10. miarwi9206 says:


  11. mmmmm says:

    steele or roughy? or both? at a loss

  12. Lachie says:

    So Beams or J'omera

    and Hanners, Sloane or JPK.

  13. SCaddict says:

    Ok community I have created a themed leagued for 2017. I believe it's a little bit of a changing of the guard with some "freshish" faces about to take our beloved Supercoach game by the scruff of the neck and dominate this season.

    To enter this league all you need do is start your side with at least one of the young gun mids of the comp which I'm choosing to define as a MID eligible player who is priced $550K or more and turns 24 or younger this season. So that works out to be just 7 players being Neale, Treloar, Zerrett, Cripps, Bont, Titch and Coniglio (who is injured unfortunately).

    So long as you are starting at least one of those guys, which heaps of teams seem to have anyway, then anyone can join in. The league code is 554967 so let's see just how high our young guns can soar in 2017!

    • TRIGGER HAPPY says:

      Gr8 idea addict
      No doubt already full

      I created one called titch to scratch on Sunday and it filled in no time.

      Be interesting to see how the young guns and titchians go

      • SCaddict says:

        Yeah saw that Trig. Unfortunately I couldn't quite squeeze Titch into my SC side in the end although he was in there for a while. Reckon he's in for a massive season so have him mega locked in my Real Dream Team side instead.

    • SCaddict says:

      EDIT: League now full. Thanks to all those coaches who entered.

    • @wheels_1987 says:

      good idea but already full

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Okay Addict, I've got a league for ya'll, it's called mid priced madness. The criteria is for who think they can spot a bargain. If you have 13 or less players who worth less than $250k, come join. League code 517117. All mid price maniacs welcome.

      • SCaddict says:

        Ha ha you seem to know me too well. I actually saw your league invite on the Rate My Team thread first and signed up before even seeing your reply here. Hopefully we get a few other midpriced madhatters to join up. πŸ™‚

        • Randomcliche2 says:

          Feel free to forward on to other madhatters here in the community πŸ™‚
          Flick me an email at 005342 at gmail.com with your team and I'll hit you back with mine. There are a few teams out there with 16 potential keepers plus O'meara or 15 plus Swallow and O'meara. I'm running 17 potential keepers (no O'meara or Swallow) I'm interested to see what you are running this year!

    • Reminiscent says:

      748491. All welcome

  14. Danners says:

    Some interesting teams lads. Something to think about with Crouch's gametime, might sound stupid but maybe he can't last a game of running. Surely he'd be getting more gametime by now if he could. Also with Goldy, with a less experienced midfield, he'll lose points for not hitting to advantage.

    • Phil says:

      And how many clearances exactly did Harvey, Dal Santo, Wells, Furrito & Petrie win last year? None of them strike as great in this area, I'll back the 5 coming in to do better. Goldstein points will go up I think

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      I think the bigger issue with Crouch's gametime was the presence of Scott Thompson in the side. Both are slow, inside players, so they tried to limit the amount they played in the middle together. Lyons could at least rotate forward if needed, but Crouch doesn't have that arrow in his bow. And since Campo would boof Thommo if he let him, it was Crouch who sat.

      One of Pyke's bigger desires it seems is to have a more dynamic and speedy midfield than what we've had previously (hence Lyons getting the boot, because he was the same, slow inside midfielder), so while everyone pops Thommo's name as a Best 22 when he's healthy, I've heard that's not going to be the case this year and he's been told he's an emergency player only (whether that lasts all year or not remains to be seen though).

      So with Thommo out of the side, that allows the Crowies to add a more multi dimensional midfield. Matt is the bull inside, Brad and Rory are the blokes who can do it both on the inside and outside, then you've got Atkins/Milera/Cameron/Smith/Mackay on the wings and guys like Hampton, Douglas and Laird who can rotate into in the middle when Matt, Brad or Rory go off for a break.

  15. hedski says:

    Settling into said comfy chair, last piece of calm before the storm, thanks for the preseason Lads, good luck all.

    • Captain Risky says:

      well, I have a shitload of work to catch up on.. looking forward to getting back to normal, and of course watching the carnage unfold! A few coldies this weekend for sure πŸ™‚
      Bring it on!

  16. Laffffff says:

    why not both j,omeara and d.swallow?

  17. jords114 says:

    I'm Jock Reynolllds I have a job application for you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVtZpBdMQGU I hope you like!

  18. Tommo09 says:

    Thoughts on my team

    Def: Simpson, Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, Otten, Stewart (Vickers-Willis, Melican)
    Mid: Danger, Kennedy, Selwood, Bont, Fyfe, Mitchell, O'Meara, SPP (Barrett, Hibberd, Parfitt)
    Ruc: Gawn, Sandi (Cameron)
    Fwd: NRoo, Lynch, Rough, Steele, Miles, Butler (Eddy, Houston)

    Rookies will change after the announcement of teams
    $4.3k left

    Thanks community

    • The Magpie Dentist says:

      Just watch for Gawn's scores with Spencer as second ruck, could downgrade him to Goldy or Grundy and upgrade Miles to Taranto. Watch for Steele too as he could be a JLT trap. Otherwise, I'd set and forget that team

  19. Andy says:

    After clearing my team about 100 times, I think I have found the structure I will be going in with in Round 1.
    Thoughts will be great!

    Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Marchbank, Hampton (Otten, Stewart)

    Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, O'Meara, Taranto, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Miles)

    Rucks: Nankervis, Sandilands (Cameron)

    Fwd: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Steele, Hoskin-Elliott, Eddy (Butler, Parfitt)

    • Gags says:

      Really like this side but could be too mid-priced heavy

      • Andy says:

        Thanks Gags!
        I think most of our teams will be mid-priced heavy with a lack of rookies.. That being said, this team will probably be changed again Wednesday or Thursday night! hahahaha

    • Lazza says:

      The guy Tuohy is replacing at Geelong was an absolute gun …. who struggled to average 100 in better teams…. so how can anyone expect Tuohy to outperform Enright.??? Enright averaged mid 90s. If you have the mula, go Howe else Lloyd.

  20. Marvin says:

    Why the lack of love for zerrett? I don't see him in many teams. Is it due to the returning players like jobe?

    • Lach says:

      Heppell, Jobey and maybe even zaha posing point stealing this year round. I'd expect him to still average around 100 tho..

    • SCaddict says:

      Yes you've answered your own question. Will still score very well regardless but can he go 110 again remains to be seen.

      Certainly wouldn't be the worst starting selection you could make this season but many coaches suspect he's priced at overs and/or is unlikely to finish a top 10 mid.

      You want to be damn sure whenever you spend over $600K on a prick hence the hesitation with picking guys like Zerrett, Gazza and Gawn for a lot of coaches, that have some level of uncertainty surrounding them. But if you believe in Zerrett as a selection go for it.

    • Marvin says:

      Thanks fellas. He could easily become Treloar before kickoff, plenty of shuffling to go no doubt. I have titch and jack Steven too, so one of the three might need to be upgraded.

    • @wheels_1987 says:

      you answered your own question
      plus essendon SHIT

    • Jake.B says:

      I have him. Even with the players back hes showed he won't be getting less of the ball in the JLT series. Serious jet. Probably a good POD.

  21. Lach says:

    sloane or titch

  22. Sully321 says:

    any thoughts on my team would be greatly appreciated

    Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, (Stewart)
    Hampton, EVW, Hibberd, (Otten)

    Danger, Pendles, Parker, Selwood, Treloar,
    Fyfe, Beams, SPP
    (Barret, Pickett, Parfitt)

    Nankilands (strnadica)

    Riewodlt, Dahlhaus, MaCrae, (Houston)
    Roughead, Taranto, butler (Eddy)

    few uncertainties in this side, not sure whether to go with roughead or steele, also i'm struggling to choose between Docherty, Simpson and shaw at d1. ATM it's shaw due to his high ceiling but i feel Docherty and Simpson will be more consistent throughout the season.
    Thanks in advance

    • Lach says:

      Defence strcuture is risky and I'm 70% sure it will change after team lineup reveals tmrw. Good chance some rookies wont be named rd1.

      • Sully321 says:

        yeah that was the other thing my structure is very much still not set

  23. Gags says:

    Any leagues fellas?
    Need a competitive one

  24. NickMacMan says:

    thoughts on m crouch or lloyd? Also thoughts on z jones?

  25. jezzahill says:

    Keen to hear people's thoughts on this team ahead of selection tomorrow night.

    DEF: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Vicker-Willis (Otten, Stewart)

    MID: Dangerfield, Kennedy, Treloar, Fyfe, Mitchell, Beams, Taranto, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Pickett, Parfaitt)

    RUCK: Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)

  27. Trent says:

    Thoughts on my team please community!
    Docherty, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, EVW ( Otten, Stewart)
    Danger, Pendles, Treloar, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, Beams, SPP, Barret ( Picket, Miles, Parfitt)

    7.7k in the bank

  28. Super_bj says:

    Need help community, im only 80% happy with my team.

    Docherty, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, EVW

    Danger, hanners, treloar, rocky, fyfe, swallow, spp, barrett

    Sandi, witts

    Rooey, dahl, buddy, gunston, nankervis, pickett

    • Lach says:

      Gunston > Rough
      Witts > Nank

      could be a possibility.. idk its up to preference.

    • Georgy Jones says:

      Good looking team, couple of cheeky but possibly huge POD in that team. How much cash you got left over?

      • Super_bj says:

        Cheers Georgy. I have $121.7k in the bank. Looking to gain some quick cash upgrading quickly.

        • Georgy Jones says:

          Still a bit in the bank. If you can start with some good rookies you will be in great shape

    • Go Large says:

      That is a huge forward line. Probably the best one I have seen to date

    • Burnmen says:

      Barrett needs to be elevated.

      EVW is doubtful but if you have Stewart and maybe Otten/Smith to back up on bench.

      Could drop one gun forward to tarantula/Willbehopingalot and then you can get another decent mid ie JOM?

      Darcy Cameron on ruck bench and I reckon you're laughing in that aspect.

    • Tim says:

      Nice team. Very similar to mine except for that extra premo forward. Would love to know how you managed to start with salary cap of $10.2 mil.

  29. AMAC says:

    Another beautiful podcast gents. A tear rolled down my cheek as Chariots of fire heightened the final displays of emotion. Thanks for your efforts this pre-season! What an epic build up to Supercoach 2017. Best of luck to you all community!

  30. Laffffff says:

    just before final lockout this week. Would appreciate some feedback on my team and what you would change and suggestions on who to change for.

    $100,000 in the bank

    DEF: t.adams, r.laird, j.smith, c.marchbank, ed.VW, c. hampton, BENCH= t.stewart, z.guthrie

    MID: Danger, bont, fyfe, T.mitchell, d.beams, j.omeara, d.swallow, S. powell-pepper BENCH= M.hibberd, H.wigg, T.miles

    RUCK: Gawn, Sandi BENCH= strnadica

    FWD: Greene, Macrae, Dahl, jarred Roughead, J. steele, T. taranto BENCH= J.pickett, B.eddy

  31. Goose says:

    G'day lads, keen to hear some thoughts on my team, pretty happy with it but with $216k in the bank I've got a couple of potential changes in mind, here's the team as it stands:

    DEF: Docherty, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Vickers-Willis (Stewart, Guthrie)
    MID: Dangerfield, Kennedy, Treloar, Fyfe. T.Mitchell, Beams, O'Meara, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Parfitt, Lloyd)
    RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Gunston, Higgins, Roughead, Nankervis, Pickett (Eddy, Houston)

    My two thoughts are:
    Dayne Beams into Zach Merrett
    Marchbank & Treloar into Jake Lloyd & Priddis

    What do we reckon? Make one of those changes or just leave it as is and keep some cash in the bank in case one of my mid-pricers like Sandi or O'Meara go down early?


    • Jake.B says:

      I rekon if you can upgrade marchbank to Lloyd that would be perfect. Priddis could very well be a unique POD is a consistent gun

  32. Young Gun says:

    Higgins or Greene? Am I setting myself up for a fall?. Your thoughts. Heaps of antiquities to ponder, do I stay with 3 premo backs, running JOM & Swallow with SPP on bench

    • @wheels_1987 says:


    • Jake.B says:

      I've gone with higgins only because everyone has green(plus I'm not really keen going on a Rollercoaster ride with him), but if higgins can go back to his 2015 form he will be a gem.

  33. Matt says:

    Anyone think josh gibson in the backline is a good idea?

    • Laffffff says:

      i've had him in previous years bit too inconsistent for my liking i'd probably even go mills before him

    • hedski says:

      Only if your a masochist Matt.

    • SCaddict says:

      He will probably frustrate the hell out of you as his scores are role dependant that can change from week to week. Great when he goes large but when those turds invariably appear the stench is intolerable.

      Had 6 games scoring below 60 last season which is not what you really want from a premo defender and didn't ton up in his last 8 games including 2 finals – ouch!

    • @wheels_1987 says:


    • Jake.B says:

      Previous years yes but last year he tailed off. Better options out there

  34. James says:

    Which team would you choose?
    Team 1:
    Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Marchbank, Hampton (Otten, Stewart)

    Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, O'Meara, Taranto, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Miles)

    Rucks: Nankervis, Sandilands (Cameron)

    Fwd: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Steele, Hoskin-Elliott, Eddy (Butler, Parfitt)

    Team 2:
    Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Vickers-Wills, Stewart)

    Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, O'Meara, Taranto, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Parfitt)

    Rucks: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)

    Fwd: N Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Hoskin-Elliott, Eddy (Miles, Butler)

    Thoughts will be appreciated.

  35. Kenny says:

    Boy oh boy wow-wee .. year of the cookie cutter!! Seems to be very little variation in sides being put up in the posts. Is this a season where we don't worry so much about making money early from the rooks but take a chance on mid pricers who can be traded down to pick up the cows as they are made available? Hopefully the addition point scoring will offset having to wait longer getting to premo extra early. And also trouble areas like the rucks should be established as to who is a keeper.

    • @wheels_1987 says:

      every year is cookie cutter !
      get into a draft league to keep things fresh

  36. Tmitch says:

    Draft at 9pm tonight if anyone is interested

  37. Davo says:

    come and join my league guys 200270

  38. Rivo says:

    Jocks team very solid and chuffed to see it's similar to mine. $7k cash. Thoughts please Community?

    D: Doc, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, EVW (Otten, Stewart);
    M: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Fyfe, M.Crouch, JOM, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Hibberd, Parfitt);
    R: Gawn, Sandi (Strnadica);
    F: Dahl, Buddy, Rough, Nank, Toronto, Pickett (Cameron, Eddy).

  39. Shake n bake says:

    Ok not sure who teams will go with there vc in rd 1 and nearly every team has Fyfe & Danger if your vc flops who will be your capt Fyfe or Danger???

    • SCaddict says:

      It's a real coin flip SnB. Both guys finished the JLT in beast mode so form coming into Rd1 is impeccable. First time they have gone head to head since Danger switched colours.

      Hopefully our VCs come off for 130 plus and we don't have to deal with that headache, as I've got no real answer right now. Perhaps a slight leaning to Danger but it could really go either way.

    • Holty says:

      Danger for me. He averages more against freo then any other team. He has played them 11 times for a average of almost 130

  40. Paulrigs says:

    Any ppl who follow from outside Australia got or want to setup a league? Otherwise Ho k can you setup an internationals league. Love the podcast all the way from London Town. Good luck this year community!

  41. Shake n bake says:

    Cameron wont play rd 1.

  42. NDR says:

    Another league just opened

    The 'Many Can Rum Cup' (323 214)

    As the great Crouching One would say – all are 'welcome'

    • NDR says:

      Just a heads up – league is now full.

      Best of luck to all this season – may you have many can rum when you pick your teams against me.


  43. d j says:

    any members out there want to join a draft league at 9pm, jump in 419503

  44. The Magpie Dentist says:

    DEF: Simmo, Laird, K.Kolodjashnij, Z.Jones, Hampton, Otten (EVW, Stewart)
    MID: Danger, Hannebery, Treloar, Bont, Fyfe, Titch, Horlin-Smith, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Pickett, Wigg)
    RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Lynch, Roughy, Nankervis, Taranto, Eddy (Butler, Houston)

    Bank: $34,000

    I can see Kolodjashnij having a very good Supercoach season if Gold Coast's engine room can stay fit. Jones will up his average and generate cash if he's not played as a tagger. Horlin-Smith I find a lot of value in and I think he could pay off if he can stay in the best 22

    • Scotland says:

      I had KK last year and it killed me, I've read he's fit and firing, but I see as a big risk at D3. I like selections of Jones, Treloar, Tich and Lynch, who are good PODS and I think will score well for you. Not sure about Horlin-Smith, but I have not followed him closely in the JLT. Good Luck!

    • Keenbutclueless says:

      Like the approach to the backline. A different and positive alternative to Marchbank. Horlin Smith is a trap. Go back and look at 2015. From memory it's like 19 games at a 60 average. Get it up to Sheed or Swallow if you can. Consider Grundy down to Martin. Go check out Martin's early run. Then check Grundy's numbers when Cox plays.

      • The Magpie Dentist says:

        Sweet as, I'll definitely keep it all in mind. Cheers for the input lads

      Like KK if he can get back to his form. Had a horrid run with injuries last year hence why he's so cheap. Good POD pick as I rekon he can get back to his best. Only query I have is gold coasts medical staff- are absolutely shambles

      $43,500 in the bank

      • The Magpie Dentist says:

        I think you have a very solid team, I like the Toby Greene selection. Only genuine concerns could be Adams with his injury history and Steele being a JLT trap. You could move Taranto forward and downgrade Steele to a Brandon Parfitt or Harrison Wigg depending on team selections. Then you could use that cash to get Adams to a Simpson/Docherty and have extra cash for if a mid-pricer breaks down. Go with your gut because you may trade out someone that you'll regret later on. Sometimes it takes balls to win it all

    • Jake.B says:

      Look at upgrading or downgrading MCarthy. He scored 80 pts from 5 goals. Looks like he's gonna struggle to score decent scores and he's not entirely cheap

    Tuohy, mills or Lloyd…. i cant split em right now?????

    • SCaddict says:

      Tuohy for me although partly because he suits my bye structure. Think all 3 are some of the better breakout contenders you could roll the dice on this season.

    • TheHoneyBadger3 says:

      Tuohy, has more upside than the other two IMO

      Lloyd I like how he improved at the end of last year and he's taken that form with him into this year. DDP as well

    In regards to the boys comments on not being able to get rid of a mid prices with no cash….if u have enough of them most likely you will need to get rid of 2. 1 up, 1 down. Not ideal but you do get to see a inform rookie and premium.

      Just the threat of Archie Smith killing his SC relevance though is the big question. He is poo if Archie plays unfortunately. In saying that, he is currently my R1. Like the fact he has Beams back in, as well as a super fit looking Rocky.

        You never know when Brissy will play Archie. That week to week uncertainty is enough to leave him alone to start with

    • Redd says:

      Like the heppell pick could be a great POD

    • Crowmagnon says:

      I think you have a couple of mid pricers too many. This could lead you to run out of trades.
      Bowes is too much cash to have on the bench. Trade him to eddy.
      Then upgrade a couple of heppell kelly steele hrovat to premium players like jpk, jjk, jelwood etc.
      Watch team selections carefully, a few of your rookies may not play.
      Lastly I think the fallen premiums like sandi and beams are more likely to pay off than breakout contenders.
      Good luck.

    • Kev says:

      I'd bolster up your midfield, Jess. Gets a bit midpricy after Fyfe.

      Rest of your team looks good

    • Dac Zawson says:

      Ainsworth is too expensive for what he will score, I'd downgrade and then upgrade Hrovat

    • Jess says:

      Ok I've upgraded hrovat to JJK and J Kelly to J Kennedy πŸ™‚

      • PJ King says:

        I think you've got a cracking defense! For me, Otten will get the boot provided Z Guthrie gets a gig.

        Have you considered dropping Danger for Selwood? Perhaps drop Hickey or Goldy for Sandi and then beef up your forward line with all that extra cash?

    • wombatsfc says:

      Hi Jess, maybe upgrade/swap some of your rookies for those selected to play. Petrevski-Seton has been selected and is a very good footballer with senior experience about 180k I think
      Has Barrett been upgraded from rookie list?
      Will Wigg and miles get a game?
      Cameron wont play round 1 due to an infected finger, if the swans have a big win he may find it hard to get back in.

    • Rivo says:

      Kelly an interesting POD, don't mind it. Not sure on Hickey keeping his avg over 90, and Steele a trap IMO. Rookies look good pending selections. I think you are one premo short, depending on how many you consider as keepers. Maybe have a look at upgrading one of Steele, Higgins or JOM to a premo like TMitch? JPK or Buddy?

      • redgumwon says:

        Thanks Rivo for the feedback. I have the cash in the bank to upgrade Hickey to Gawn if Spencer doesn't play. The other reason I went with Hickey was for a POD and I have a gut feeling if Hickey plays the lone wolf ruck for St Kilda he could have a break out year. If I go with Hickey then I can upgrade Steele or JOM to one of the players you mentioned. If Kelly fires then he could be a keeper and if he doesn't then he's a stepping stone to JPK or another premo

  71. Steeeve says:

    Hey so should we keep Cameron at R3 and hope he plays eventually, or just go with Strnadica?
    OR hope Preuss gets a game?

    • SCaddict says:

      I'd just use Strnadica for loop as he's dirt cheap and Feo are a good loop side. Even if and when Cameron and Preuss get games their JS and scoring output are likely to be fairly questionable in my view.

      Anyway that's what I intend to do even if Preuss is named, unless we have some dire shortage of rookies on another line where you could consider using a loop there instead.

      • Steeeve says:

        A great point Addict. Ita just going to be so. Bloody. Hard. To make money this year!
        I know last year I went in with a donut at R3 and by golly I wished I had the big Cox earning me $150K.

    • Burnmen says:

      It's just an infected finger. Locked.

    • TRIGGER HAPPY says:

      Probably going to go strn. Took hard to loop a M11 in my structure with SPP on the bench.

      Also if by chance Sandi does get injured I would expect strn to get the call up to replace him.

      • Beady Eye says:

        Might be worth noting that not only did Strnadica not play at all in the JLT, he's the backup ruck behind Sean Darcy (fellow 2016 draftee who played all three JLT matches) in Freo's WAFL team.

        If Sandi goes down, I wouldn't bank on Strnadica being the one called up. Good for loophole purposes only.

    • Beezneez says:

      Am I missing something but surely using Stmadica as a loophole is only valid if you have Gawn, Goldy or Grundy or a DPP in the fwd line. The same applies to other posts asking about loophole VC and C options with Fyfe and Danger unless there is a non playing mid bench.

  72. Aaron says:

    Can someone be kind enough to post the code of the community group that Derek posted a while back

  73. NoLanguage says:

    Goldy or Grundy guys? For and against???

    • The Magpie Dentist says:

      Goldy: (For) He is a proven ruckmen, without a 3rd man up he can potentially up the ante (Against) Injury interrupted pre season
      Grundy: (For) A lot of upside, very close to a break out season (Against) Cox/Moore/White in the ruck may affect his scoring

    decision on wether to upgrade tuohy or not and also wanna fit Tom Mitchell into the midfield was thinking pendles out but Idk

    • The Magpie Dentist says:

      Tuohy makes a good point of difference where most people will pick a Doc/Simmo, Shaw, Laird backline. If you want a high scoring defender with difference, try a Jeremy Howe or Alex Rance. I think you can downgrade Pendles to Titch since you already have Treloar there. I like the Sandiwitts ruck strategy as it has a lot of cash making potential and Josh Kennedy is a strong POD selection

    • Dnoyes says:

      I would upgrade Prestia unless you are really confident that he will have a breakout year.

      I have a similar team to you but what I've done is move Nank up forward and swapped out Taranto/Bowes for Witts. This is because I feel Witts will earn more money, or is more certain to get gametime than the other two. Also it will give Sandilands protection from injury.

      • poloko48 says:

        I like that idea Dnoyes, I guess the question is will Witts make more $$ than either Taranto or Bowes? The fact that Witts is also there for ruck backup provides more value too, so might be worth more overall.
        I have a feeling Prestia will dominate Richmond's fairly pedestrian midfield, just a hunch. At worst he'll be OK at M8.
        Thanks mate!

  79. Jim says:

    Anyone know what tends to work best as a starting structure. Packed midfield? Packed defence? Forwards? What have pervious winners started with?

    • kim says:

      Depends on which rookies are named Jim. People are saying there alot of defensive rookies this year so thats why a few are going 3-0-5 or even 2-0-6. But if ed vickers and hibberd dont make norths team or even zack guthrie it will totally screw up basically all of those teams. Alot seem to be stacking midfield this year as not as many midfields rookies seem to be available. some teams have no rookies on field for example so JOM or swallow at M8. I don't like that structure personally as it will be far too hard to make enough cash to upgrade defence and forward lines or rucks which have to be weaker to compensate for stacked mids.

    Treleor or Pendles haven't not started with Pendles and I feel if I don't start him he'll come out with a bang but also worry his getting older and not full pre season

      Any chance Cameron never gets a game this year? For a couple years straight I've chosen a ruckman I think will make some money, only for them to never hit the park. If they're not getting a run, Strnadica would be the obvious choice.

      • Bells E Bubb says:

        Yes a good chance of none if Sinclair and whats his name are back and playing well. Still he’s done well so far and they do play rookies if they are up to it. For the extra tenner it’s well worth it imho. Could also end up playing 10 games. Strnd won’t get near it and no other options; are there?

  97. SCaddict says:

    Hard to fault that side much mate. A lot of coaches have cooled their jets on Goldy this season (for a few reasons) but he has been a proven SC performer for a number of years now so you can certainly back him in if you like.

    Just make sure you have as many rookies generating cash from Rd1 as possible, with just the one floating donut for captain's loophole, which for your side with Nank in the forward line should really stay Strnadica as you currently have.

    • Can't bat says:

      Cheers for your thoughts SCaddict.
      Was thinking Roughie to a rookie and then a rookie to Marchbank and Rance to Docherty?????

      • SCaddict says:

        Yes you could do that. Whilst you would be losing a probable keeper in Roughie you would be getting a slightly better premo defender as well as a rookie with seemingly excellent JS and decent scoring potential.

        One issue could be which rookie you'd downgrade Roughie to so you may have to wait for Thursday teams first before making that call.

  98. Alex says:

    If there are no rookie rucks named round 1, is Witts a viable r3 or is someone like Strnadica a better option to use for loophole's and to save 100k???

    • Steeeve says:

      Use Cameron, he won't play round one but should get games for Sydney. He's only out one week. Will make money faster than Witts too.

    Lads, thoughts on this latest offering.

    Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Guthrie, (V-W, Stewart)
    Dangerfield, hanners, jelwood, Fyfe, twitch, beams, Taranto, P-P (Barret, Pickett, D-C)
    Sandiwitts (CAMERON)
    Dahl, buddy, McRae,roughy,nank,Hoskin-Elliot (butler, eddy)

    Have picked the rooks with the best ave from JLT that should play to start on ground then gone from there. – MB, Hampton, Guthrie, Taranto, P-P, H-E, wits.

    Still toying with either
    Taranto forward and buddy/McRae to a 550k mid or mouch.
    Or Taranto forward and roughy (or nank if I have the testicular fortitude to run no ruck cover) to JOM.

      Batting way too deep in the forward line downgrade roughie to Houston then upgrade mid rookie

    Have Barrett and/or Guthrie been elevated from rookie list yet?

    • SCaddict says:

      Haven't heard anything on Barrett yet. Not sure if Guthrie has officially been elevated just yet either but it seems a mere formality with Gregson on the LTI list and Chris Scott saying that Zach Guthrie is a strong chance to get named in the Cats extended squad tomorrow.

    Would appreciate feedback, started supercoach too late.

      Dont bother with any of them, wont make much cash at all i think, Simpkin is the only one with decent job security but other cheaper options in the forward line besides him.

    i would go treloar over pendles and use cash to upgrade Greene

  116. BeaglieBoy says:

    McReeedie for Carlton looks likely to get a game for the Blues……an early game Defence rookie…..HOORAY

  117. kim says:

    Starting team look good mate, the difference between a good supercoach player and a very good player is experience e.g. learning from past errors (starting team and trades). Trading players will set you apart from your mates as long as you dont panic trade out your premos for 1 or 2 bad games in a row (i stuffed that up last year with barlow should have kept him).

    And getting rid of rookie cash cows at the right time (most hold onto them for too long). This year may be tough with lack of rookies though so we may actually have to hold them for a little longer.

    All the best for the season!

  118. rosy says:

    I ask myself why has he come back after everything he's been through. He's aging. He's always injured. He's been labelled a cheat. They took his Charlie away from him.
    He could have easily walked away from it all and nobody would begrudge him and yet he's back. I think he's got a major point to prove.
    Probably wont make it past the bye rounds but do we honestly think he won't average 100+ and pack on $100k?
    He averaged 90's in the JLT with his TOG being heavily managed.

    • Burnmen says:

      I think you have a good point here, but even if he packs on 100K is he really worth using the trade out and then another trade in to a top 8 premo?

    Have 129, 400 in the bank. Looking to use it on Marchbank if Def rookies dont play.
    POD in Middle is Shiel, would love thoughts on him?
    Rucks have gone with set and forget, Dont want in on all the Sandliands, Nankervis and Witts drama.
    Only Concern is Fwd being too light on Premos.
    Thoughts overall? Appreciate any type of feedback. Thanks.

    • Sam_01 says:

      Shiel although a good POD, would probably take Ward over him.. wasnt happy with any of my GWS mids last year though
      Fwd is light but what do you expect when your running Gawn Goldstien, the chance you have to take

      • Vinny says:

        Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. Will look at all options around shiel. Thanks

      Upgrade crouch? Loyd?

      • Sam_01 says:

        Like the set up, and like the extra cash should something go pearshaped very good idea. Like sandi said would only really consider a few possible upgrades with the extra cash but the team looks solid

  121. Sam_01 says:

    Alright community seems like the frantic team swapping will soon come to an end, would love your thoughts on the team
    BACK: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Otten, V.willis (Stewart,guthrie)

    RUCK: Grundy, Sandi
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Nankervis, Eddy, Houston (Butler, Miles)
    Tried to go a little bit different to most teams going one deeper and having pepperpig on the bench, Im a fan of the Parker and Cripps selections i think they will both have big years, should i be highly considering other premos in their place if not im thinking they should get the job done as well as any for a similar price. Also best two starting fwd rookies? 56k left over, would love to hear everyones thoughts!

    • Vinny says:

      Like the difference in midfield, maybe a bit too midpriced but then again its a hard decision with less rookies to choose from. Solid team!

    • hedski says:

      I think your short a mid there Sam?

  122. BeaglieBoyy says:

    Who are the highest possession winners in the mids???…..(looking at my Real Dreamteam lineup)….its possessions that count in that format, so it doesnt matter if you kick it 50metres backward to an opposition player standing alone in the goal square, who then goes on to kick the winning goal….you still get 3 points for the disposal….with this in mind I feel that Merrett, TMitchell Beams Danger and Treloar are must haves over players with good efficiency and who affect the game such as Pendles

      Spend some of your cash to get more guaranteed starters for round 1. Bench players who don't get games don't make $
      I don't think Barrett has been upgraded yet and Hibberd,Parfitt, Atley and Houston aren't guaranteed to play.

  138. Toddgood1 says:

    Pendles or Treloar????

    • Top Hawk says:

      I prefer Treloar personally. Pendles average might slip a little this year (A little past his prime now) whilst Treloar's is set to hit new heights because of his younger age. He is $40 K cheaper too. Just might two bobs worth.

      Anyhow, just so you know, this is the best team I have seen to date. And I have seen plenty of teams. Trust me.

      I love the Aaron Hall pick. That is a POD with turbo charge potential. At 519K, he is "on special" at the moment.

      P.S I have him too by the way..

      All your lines are really balanced without getting the "cookie cutter" tag.

      Good luck!

  152. CoachDamo says:

    Really worried about the forward line.

    Besides Dahlhaus, really worried about consistent scoring. Macrae, Lynch, Kennedy, Buddy – so much fluctuation in their scoring. Is anyone having trouble selecting an F2?

    • Russ in W.A says:

      You'll be ok, fwd line hasn't scored that well the last few years anyway, you'll probably be thankful for a 90 average for this season at the end of it.

      Macrae should be consistent enough as he doesn't rely on goals and usually gets 25+ touches most weeks

    FWD: Dahl, Lynch, Roughead, Hoskin Elliot, Butler, Miles (Houston, Eddy)

    I am thinking about having Beams at M7 and SPP at M8. Is that too deep? Doing this trade would leave me with 82k left over which is enough for rookie adjustments. If i don't do the JOM to Beams trade, i am not sure what i would spend my 196k on. Thoughts?

    • Mitch says:

      North Melbourne have announced the EVW won't male his debut in round 1. Ive personally got both beams and JOM. A lot of injury risk but huge upside if they stay fit. It depends on what you're looking for. If you're after cash generation go O'meara. If you're looking for a potential season long keeper then beams is probably the go assuming they both stay fit.
