Round 16 SuperCoach Panic Room

Round 16 SuperCoach Panic Room

An absolutely huge week in the Panic Room this week! Nat Fyfe’s injury is one of those “everyone remembers where they were” type of things. Personally I was playing Crash Bandicoot. After dying for the 1,658th time I calmly placed (read: threw with uncontrolled rage) my controller down and checked the scores of Brisbane v […]

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. […]

Round 14 SuperCoach Panic Room

We’re almost there guys! Just one bye round to go. And it’s not going to get any easier for us. This is the big one. Round 14. When we were preparing to let our teams for 2018 go into the big wide world of SuperCoach the round 14 bye looked to be the “challenging” one […]

Bye round 2: Electric Boogaloo If the sequel is rarely as good as the original, it’s going to take something epic to wash the stain that was round 12 out of our minds / underwear. I really don’t want to imagine how much worse that week can get. On some level we knew it was […]

Round 12 SuperCoach Panic Room

Round 12 SuperCoach Panic Room

Ugh. The less said about that round the better Round 12 gives us our first taste of the 2018 byes (unlike that fake bye round where everyone scored 2400+). Four teams are having a rest: Carlton, Hawthorn, Western Bulldogs, and West Coast. This week your best 18 onfield players make up your score for the […]

Round 11 SuperCoach Panic Room

Wow! I like these bye round thingy’s (do do do do, do, do do, dooooo) My highest score for the year paled in comparison to some absolutely monster efforts over the weekend. A few 2600+ scores were doing the rounds on Twitter. Our own cheat sheet extraordinaire, Damo, is now breathing down Patch’s neck challenging […]

Round 8 SuperCoach Panic Room

Round 8 SuperCoach Panic Room

This week is all about bubbles, Community. Bubbles! Everyone loves bubbles. Having a glance through the JR Community group this week and I felt something in the cold, empty recesses of my dead heart. Pride possibly. The Community currently has six members inside the top 100. Marvellous effort that. And a further six inside the […]

Round 7 SuperCoach Panic Room

Round 7 SuperCoach Panic Room

Let’s not sugar coat it, last week was tough… We kinda knew it was coming though, when teams dropped on the Thursday rookies were dropped, premo’s were dropped, Sunday squads added everyone available on their list. Of course it doesn’t help when “reliable” premo’s have a down game, and rookies like Holman and Finlayson hit […]

Round 6 SuperCoach Panic Room

……. The Panic Room usually starts earlier in the week, I get the bulk of the article done so when Thursday comes I can just plug in the team news and I can put my feet up. Not this week, Community. Not this bloody week. On my desk here at Jock HQ there is a […]
