What you are about to read will change the way that you approach AFL Supercoach and Dreamteam in 2012. What you will learn here today kids will allow you to break away from the realm of the struggling muppet and into the domain of the Fantasy Footy elite. Put down your can of V. Turn off the playstation. Stop your twittering for just a few minutes. Pull up a chair and listen to Jock.
Season 2011 was a tough year. We all had to deal with a bye each weekend. To soften this blow we were provided with some relief in the form of 4 extra trades, extra bench players and an influx of many more players that could be used in more than 1 position.
A unique situation folks. This chaotic set of circumstances has lead to a sharp increase in the number of young coaches who have had their ability to pick a solid team stuffed up by what we at the Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Community like to call “Noise Pollution”. This defines the condition in which a Supercoach and/or Dreamteam fantasy coach is over-inclined to make ‘clever’ player selections based on factors such as dual position eligibility. They become less inclined to base selections on more important factors – such as a players ability to not be a useless hack.
Won’t happen to you right? Sitting there reading this in the cold clear light of early November off-season things seem black and white. But The Noise will begin soon my friends. Will it begin with a comment from that respected coach at work? Or maybe with a forum post from a self titled elite coach… maybe a Tweet that just sows that seed? In this day and age of the world wide internet The Noise is very hard to filter out.
Students. Focus on what works. Quality Fantasy Footballers score higher points. Joe Spud may be able switch between the ruck and your forward line but that does not change the fact that Joe Spud is a spud. Sure – 2011 meant that we needed to keep an eye out for good players that we could flick around a bit, but cleanse your mind for a 2012 which will see things return to relative normality. Watch out for the inexperienced sides that go into 2012 with a dud backline due to the factor that I write about in my previous post (Click Here) – it will crack you up.
Thanks for your early support of the world wide web evolution of my Fantasy Footy Community – its great to have you all along for the ride.
