DAVID ARMITAGE: Supercoach Spotlight 2018

DAVID ARMITAGE: Supercoach Spotlight 2018

David Armitage missed all but 2 games in 2017 with a groin injury (rumour has it he was injured filming a remake of the Simpsons classic “Man Getting Hit by Football”). The disappointments of 2017 could be the opposite in 2018… I can’t think of an exact opposite for word disappointment. CS Lewis used to […]

RORY SLOANE – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

RORY SLOANE – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

Everyone loves an underdog. Rising from the slums of Melbourne, Sloanedog Millionaire was taken at pick 44 in his second draft, in 2008. Hardly promising prospects for an aspiring midfielder. However, the crow with the lion heart quickly developed a cult following in the south, and it’s easy to see why. He’s got the lustrous […]

PATRICK CRIPPS – Supercoach Spotlight 2018

As an out and proud Richmond supporter, I thought nothing could rival the man-love I feel for Dustin Martin… … I was wrong. The man-love coming (lol) from Carlton supporters for Patrick Cripps is on another level. “He’s a beast!”, they cry. “He’s never had a full preseason!” they yell. “I want to lock him […]

PEARCE HANLEY – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

I wrote an article in the latter stages of 2014 on Pearce Hanley. It was preseason, and we were all excited at the prospect of a DEF/MID Hanley, alas, for 2015 and all the years since – he has been MID-only. This year is the first – since 2014 – that we have been gifted […]

JACK MACRAE – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

I just don’t get the Bulldogs. I know most sides play it very fluid with player positions, and you can see anyone playing all over the field, but normally there’s some sort of a structure. Look at Geelong – sure, they’ve got sixteen midfielders, but you know Tom Hawkins will play forward, Zac Smith will […]

DANGERFIELD vs MARTIN vs MITCHELL

Hey Community. Kev here. Lek, Patch, BvC – those are the guys that stood up and kept the Jock Reynolds train rumbling for another season. Patch just roped me in because, umm, err…. he needed someone to get the coffee? Someone to get him his pre-podcast danish? (he won’t go on without his danish). Whatever […]

LUKE SHUEY – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

LUKE SHUEY – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

I’m sure those who owned Luke Shuey in 2017 had high hopes for him after finishing 2016 with an average of 105.6 SCPoints, which was 17th best in the AFL. He cost a pretty penny to start the season, with a $574,500 price tag, but he failed to replicate his scores, falling to his lowest […]
