CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE Round 16

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE Round 16

Woe is us. Nathaniel Fyfe is gone, injured, KAPUT. We’ve got to trade him, and the number of captaincy options in front of us decreases yet again. One thing I finally remembered to say on the podcast before it was stolen from us was to get behind Doctor Supercoach’s ‘dollars for donuts’ campaign, which is […]

THE CHEAT SHEET Round 16

THE CHEAT SHEET Round 16

Is this the beginning of the end? *uncontrollable sobbing* Please refer to last week’s cheat sheet because those options are still very relevant in the wake of this disaster. I’ve put some more options in this week too. Jake Lloyd is getting hard to ignore. Joel Selwood and Andrew Gaff are still reliable as ever. […]

Around The Grounds – Round 15

Around The Grounds – Round 15

Round 15 was a roller coaster it seems, we had some absolutely terrific performances from players such as Tom Mitchell, we also suffered some awful scores, with injuries hitting the likes of Isaac Heeney and Nat Fyfe and some just general poor play from guys like Tom McDonald. That Nat Fyfe injury in particular could […]

PODCAST: THE TRIBUTE

Technology is a wonderous thing. It allows us to communicate from one side of the globe to the other, simultaneously. It lets us come together in communities just like this one to be one. Technology can also be literally the worst. Namely when Windows auto-updates midway through Patch editing a podcast without asking him to […]

HEROES, VILLAINS AND THE DAMNED

Community, we now have an undisputed midfield king of SuperCoach. Nat Fyfe’s hamstring injury has not only elevated Tom Mitchell to Brownlow Medal favourite, but also the number one midfielder in the SuperCoach landscape. Ruck giants Max Gawn and Brodie Grundy aside, Mitchell now ranks a permanent weekly captaincy option after his brilliant 50-possession effort […]

THE STANDING ROOM Round 15

THE STANDING ROOM Round 15

That round didn’t go well. It went awfully, in fact. Heeney, Dusty, Oliver, Smith and more all delivered sub-par scores. Gunston a late out. Nathaniel Fyfe doing a hamstring in the first half of his game. And that’s before we talk about VC/C carnage caused by Ahern and Giro being late ins, or just people […]

Round 15 SuperCoach Panic Room

Round 15 SuperCoach Panic Room

Yaaaaas mates! The dreaded byes are over for another year. (me @ work) For what was supposedly the “hard” bye week, what a week it was! Cripps, Kelly, Maxy, Sicily all went massive. Pendles wound back the clock. Goldmember is averaging a cool 116 from his past 5. Yeo, Simpson, Howe got the job done. […]

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE Round 15

Come one, come all – come on down to Mr Patch’s magical emporium of captains. We’re back to nine whole games this week, which means a whole bunch of captaincy options. Sadly, that also means we have fewer loophole options without bye players. If you don’t have any loophole players, now’s the perfect time to […]

THE CHEAT SHEET Round 15

THE CHEAT SHEET Round 15

I need to apologise. Last week I recommended both Adam Treloar and Harris Andrews. While I could not have foresaw that both would be injured and ruled out as a result, I still apologise. I know there are people who moved to bring both players in, some because of the advice my cheat sheet gave […]

HEROES, VILLAINS AND THE DAMNED Round 13

Rejoice, Community. The dreaded bye rounds are over. We can now slot our complete or near-complete sides back on the field and operate at full capacity. There were some stunning performances on the weekend, headlined by contested machine Patrick Cripps and the majestic Josh Kelly. Scores fluctuated somewhat from team to team with some scoring […]

AROUND THE GROUNDS Round 14

Hooray! The bye weeks are finally done with! That means we can get back to regularly scheduled program, although we will potentially have issues such as Adam Treloar and Harris Andrews to deal with. Some of you will be nearing your side hitting its final form, your “Golden Frieza” if you will, while others may […]

PODCAST: #SLEEVEWATCH

Quinten Tarantino’s Hateful Eight was a movie about eight nasty people doing rather nasty things to each other. I think. I never actually saw the film, mind you, but heard (and assumed from the title… alright it was mostly the title) that it was about eight bad people. This week, Lekdog and Patch bring you […]
