It’s been an AFL Supercoach & DT opening round of ups, downs, swings and roundabouts folks.

Many of you are celebrating a successful Fantasy Footy preseason and a reasonable round 1 output. Many of you are lamenting the one that got away. Many of you may take several days to be well enough to speak to your family friends and work colleagues. Some tales of woe and joy are playing out in front of our eyes on the How Did your mob go post here.

Many of you will need a fair old dose of good old fashioned common sense right now. We discuss the need to avoid the knee jerk reaction at all costs.

Let us know how you went folks – we’re rapt that the games have begun.

PendleBEAST!!!… LOCK!

funny stuff, keep it up fellaz

    Jock · 02/04/2012 at 17:15

    Isn't he an absolute gun the young peddles. Will need to keep up that output to justify his price .. Im not shattered that I don't have him in my team

squiz · 02/04/2012 at 11:16

thanks fellas, great stuff!

i was concerned with broughton, i'll hold on though!

    Jock · 02/04/2012 at 17:14

    Yeah hold onto him mate, he will run through the midfield this season and all should be hunky dory.

      Tigerman · 02/04/2012 at 19:47

      wonder just how much midfield time will get once mundy returns. Barlow won't be sub a lot I wouldn't have thought

xavier · 02/04/2012 at 11:52

great show guys, Jock wondering if i should trade Mumford or not? what do you think

    Klay · 02/04/2012 at 12:22

    trade him out? why would you do that?

    Jock · 02/04/2012 at 17:13

    Nah hold onto the big Mummy old son. Few things.. Burn trades in the ruck at your peril, also.. The big Mummy will come good don't you worry about that mate

BB · 02/04/2012 at 16:25

Trading a player that got 95? Is there something you know that we don't??

Sie · 02/04/2012 at 18:15

Cracking round of footy even though my Kangas went down.

Super coach score:

2064

Pretty happy as my midfield is Ablett and 7 rookies and I picked Goodes as captain.

no injuries no suspensions and 4 of the top seven cash cow scores….lots of upside.

Cheers for the site Jock, Higgo, and Crouching!

johnnoB · 02/04/2012 at 18:33

Loved the show again, and I think the DT boys do too!!

Uncanny resemblance to your content has appeared on their website after your podcast went out.

What a compliment! Well done lads.

Crouching wash you bottom …..hahahahahaha.

Jacko · 02/04/2012 at 18:44

Hey jock did alright glad I got pendles and ablett the too good to miss. Do you think I should burn a trade on boumann out mohr in cos I kinda need that spot to play?

Razzle · 02/04/2012 at 19:52

Hey Jock,

whata you reckon about brian lake

Brad · 02/04/2012 at 19:59

Hey Jock, I'm bit concerned as i've backed myself and gone with the 4 rookies in the ruck. I'm not unhappy with Giles and Redden however WTF are they gonna do with young cat Orren Stephenson…? I'm also sweating the lions introducing Billy…

Great site, and ripper podcast last night mate. Cheers

    King Gerrard · 02/04/2012 at 22:33

    u go 4 rookie ruck? very silly, very silly pick

      Brad · 02/04/2012 at 23:15

      well they got 88, 71 and the premium player i got as a result (S.Thompson) scored 147… That's 102 ave between the three. my ruck backup is my concern, not my strategy

        MJ · 03/04/2012 at 01:03

        Brad went the same way myself .. I wouldn't be too concerned just yet. Redden got subbed out with cramp and still scored 71. The guy was smashing it .. Looked really good so don't worry about job security and I can see the Giles Redden combo averaging 85pts each over the year .. come round 9/10 they should be priced at 450k and easy to trade up to ultra premium rucks in time for the bye rounds .. this is when i'm looking to do alot of my upgrading

          King Gerrard · 03/04/2012 at 01:37

          Dean Brogan will return this week and Renouf will be back for port in 1 or 2 more. This will limit their chance of scoring more then 80s.

          You go 4 rookie ruck and you need 200k each for prem ruck at 400k rookie. That means you use 4 trade on ruck… very silly, VERY VERY SILLY

Jordan · 02/04/2012 at 20:16

Jock what do u think about lake, should I wait another week or go with dempsey or hargrave??

    MJ · 03/04/2012 at 01:04

    Give him another week at least – and go with a down grade and not a sideways if he has another shocker next wk

Spifflicator · 02/04/2012 at 20:51

Jordan, I ain't Jock, but here's some advice on trades (See Crouchings article BTW).

Never sideways trade.

Either Trade up to premium, or down to a cow.

If you you think Lake will continue to spud it up, then I would suggest jumping on Bugg, Smedts, Ellis or another rookie who will earn you cash and free up $150k to spend on a premium.

Monty · 02/04/2012 at 21:14

Hey Jock just wondering if i should trade someone out this round to get PendleBEAST or wait

    MJ · 03/04/2012 at 01:06

    if you don't have him now, then i'd ride it out .. don't go burning trades to try get him in .. cop it and look for him as an upgrade mid season. He will have an off game somewhere and his price will at some pt drop below 700k

HeaDHuNtN RooBoYz · 02/04/2012 at 22:38

Hey Jock why didn't Nathan Bock play? He had a great pre season and I have him as a prem lock in the backline. Do you know why he was a late withdraw?

Do I keep him or trade into Adcock?

    Pat · 02/04/2012 at 22:56

    club imposed suspension for first 2 weeks for that betting "mishap" 😉

      HeaDHuNtN RooBoYz · 02/04/2012 at 23:27

      Why would they suspend him for round 1? They should of done it for NAB cup games only. So his out for 1 more week?

        King Gerrard · 03/04/2012 at 01:40

        TRADE!! you dont want hacks in your team

    Jock · 03/04/2012 at 02:48

    Gday there Head Huntn old son.

    Mate – If you have Bock already I'd keep him.. Adcock will drift back to the pack and when Bock comes in he'll be solid and a nice point of difference fo ya 😉

xavier · 02/04/2012 at 22:42

Bock didnt play due to suspension, not too sure how long for but

Alistair · 02/04/2012 at 23:19

Hi Jock great site, Pretty happy with my team scored 2210, but I made 1 stuff up. I thought I had the new ebert to Port but I actually had the older one.

He is not playing and is worth 335k should I trade him or carry him for another week until i can get the BEST cash cow? Very shitty

matty · 03/04/2012 at 04:32

Jock Do I keep broughton and lake ? Happy with the rest

Kade · 03/04/2012 at 05:15

WHY DIDNT ROBBIE GRAY PLAY!!!

Starky · 03/04/2012 at 06:04

Great Podcast, well done lads.

Gets funnier every week and fair play to you for taking the time out to help those of us who haven't had 75 years in football.

Mark · 03/04/2012 at 06:41

Alot of people are going to burn a trade getting rid of Lake this week.

I was one of the people burnt by Lake last year.

I didnt know he was injured, So i told myself never again.

This year i realised he was injured last year, so i gave him another chance.

Yes i know he did crap but he played against Cox and Nic Nat who were resting up forward.. So of course they never went ball hunting down the ground. So he was stuck in the Goal square. And its almost impossible winning a marking contest against those 2.

Next week if i’m correct, he’s playing Adelaide so he will probably be on Tippett and i wont be surprised if he follows Tippett up the ground if Tippett goes ball hunting. This can see Lake rack up his usual points.

Keep him in the team one more week..

If your not confident, put him on the bench,

but i dont see a need

    MJ · 03/04/2012 at 10:07

    Well said Mark 😀 .. I am thinking of trading him but after reading this I think i'm back on board. I had Yarran round 1 last year and he scored a 30odd first round last year and I thought of trading him but stuck it out and Yarran stayed in my team all year getting me a few tonnes along the way

    great work Mark, i feel good about him now, will take 70pts a week off him so lets hope next week we see something close

Y2J · 03/04/2012 at 07:41

im shattered i dont have that PendleBEAST i got swanny instead, im going to trade lake for a rookie and swap kerr to stanton his a boeing 747 ready to take off so jump on now ladz. what do u think crouchin?

adam · 03/04/2012 at 08:23

get on grimes

Willo · 03/04/2012 at 08:27

Im basking in Lake's awesomness. Like anyone who doesn't pull their weight in my team he can sit the next game out on the bench.

billy · 03/04/2012 at 09:20

solid 2110 from my boys this week. managed to beat my smartass mates for the first time ever 🙂

shame i had Mcdonald (100) and Giles (88) as emergencies and Coniglio (59) and Stephenson (16) in my starting 22.

Yagmoor (6) is going straight out. tossing up between Bugg and Mohr as his replacement. im also disappointed in Lake, Morris, Broughton, Shiel and Dickson, but their all getting another chance

also shattered because the mighty pies didnt get up 🙁

thanks for all the advice jock. your a legend mate

BomberBuys · 03/04/2012 at 10:16

Sorry Higgo but unconvinced about Sandilands, news that Freo are nursing him, injury worries still hanging around, wonder how he will go against a veteran ruck. Not sure about Nicnac and Cox sorry Crouching, feel those two could take away points from each other atm.

Keeping an eye on Kruezer however Jock I am sticking with Mummy for the time being.

Speed · 04/04/2012 at 04:05

Hey Jock,

Pretty happy with my score this week, but the one big worry was Christensen. Scored well when he got subbed on but should i persevere, risking the dreaded vest or use the money elsewhere?

Cheers mate

adam · 05/04/2012 at 07:06

jack grimes looks lovely
