Post Queens Birthday – a very special edition

Published by Jock on

It is a great honor to announce to our beloved Supercoach and Dreamteam community that we had a very special guest for this evening’s post round 11 podcast. We hope you enjoy her input as much as we did.

Many of you are aware of my strong links to the monarchy so this may come as no great surprise. Tune is as we discuss the ins and outs of a shocker of a weekend for fantasy footballers from all over the world.

The name of this game is to stay positive folks. You might have been knocked silly by this bye, by Zaharakis or by big Sandilands but hang in there.. don’t throw in the towel and above all else maintain your discipline.

Enjoy this weeks podcast,

Jock Reynolds

G'day Jock and co,

Pretty filthy trading Gaz in last round, don't want to do anything stupid this round. Boomer Harvey, will he average 100+? Scotty Thompson vs Priddis (leaning towards scotty). Plus who is a good downgrade option for the "horse", thinking Crozier for DPP.

    Dyno Mite · 12/06/2012 at 23:13

    not convnced with Crozier, has the bye this week so i would wait anyhow.

TheAnointedOne · 12/06/2012 at 09:53

Hey Jockstar…

Hope you enjoyed the beverage with Lizzie. You will be knighted soon old son!

spear to mind i have 126,600 in the bank. if i get him for smith horsley or magner i will have to make another trade to make the cash. got 126,600 in the bank.

please reply need help asap!


    rw · 12/06/2012 at 13:58

    Smith has a BE of 77 which im Not confident he'll make. Shiel's is like 24 indicating he still will fatten up

      G unit · 13/06/2012 at 14:53

      smith or magner. magner will help with bye.

        Tim · 14/06/2012 at 05:02

        devon smith or magner definitley!i say more to magner because his price is dropping badlyand devon smiths b.e is high because he had a bad week of 44 so when he come good he will go up price

rw · 12/06/2012 at 14:00

Btw Magner is also done. He didn't hit his BE today and has an ever decreasing role at Melb. He should have been gone by now

johnnoB · 12/06/2012 at 19:31

Smooth Jock – cracking on to the queen! You continue to teach The Community more than just fantasy football.

J. Reynolds, 3 votes.

Crouching, 2 votes ….. born ready to fight.

Higgo, 1 vote….. I think he struggled with the crumpet in the studio.

Thanks guys. My working week is off to a flyer again.

The Camm · 12/06/2012 at 21:41

Sertiously anyone that didn't know about Higgo's trading strategy on this show, should have a long hard look at yourselves!!!


3 – Crouching

2 – Jock

1 – Higgo

Dyno Mite · 12/06/2012 at 23:12

Jock, Crouching Tiger and Higgo, love your work.

I am taking your advice and have decided to upgrade Clay Smith to Brent Harvey. This gives me a second swing set.

Can i be confident that Boomer will perform or should i look elsewhere, given i have 76k in the bank?

Stay safe,


    Supercoach wisdom (o · 12/06/2012 at 23:16

    Good point Dyno,

    Im looking at this myself….

    Any help Jock?

The Wanderer · 13/06/2012 at 01:24

Can't quite pick Her Majesty's accent – is it Scottish?

    Starky · 13/06/2012 at 02:58

    Sounded a bit like the Crouching in disguise. Hopefully she liked his slippers

      The Wanderer · 13/06/2012 at 04:47

      The same thought occurred to me, but I dismissed it. After all, they were both clearly in the same room. Unless something fishy is going on!!!

        Paul G · 13/06/2012 at 06:27

        Yeah me too. Definitely related to crouching. Perhaps Her Majesty visited Pyanmah many years ago, when Phillip was away hunting. Perhaps she did her own bit of hunting…

          The Wanderer · 14/06/2012 at 09:30

          I think we should drop this subject. Jock is clearly enamoured of Her Royal Highness. Any suggestion that it is Crouching in disguise may derange him, and cruel a valuable source of Supercoach Wisdom.

    TheAnointedOne · 14/06/2012 at 04:17

    Northern Ireland perhaps???

Jack · 13/06/2012 at 03:11

Does anyone still think Scotland is still worth trading out?

    Poo Bum · 13/06/2012 at 03:56

    Depends who your competition is over the next few weeks.

    rw · 13/06/2012 at 04:37

    apparently on plane to Perth

      Dylan · 13/06/2012 at 07:03

      Carlton have said both he and carazzo will play. If It's a media stunt, though, who knows?

    TheAnointedOne · 14/06/2012 at 04:19

    In the same boat as you Jack…keep or trade. Hope he is in saves me another donut or trade. says he is in the mix

swans05 · 13/06/2012 at 05:02

pendles is he okay someone give it to me straight, is his not right gabblet is looking pretty stunning.

    Starky · 13/06/2012 at 06:08

    Good thing is that gabblet has a big BE this week and then the bye so you have a bit of time to weigh up the options. You might get him a little cheaper as well

James · 13/06/2012 at 05:22

Ripper podcast but the info on potential bring ins are becoming the same. Anywho what do People think of b.harvey compared to t.cloke this week as an upgrade from d.smith???

Paul G · 13/06/2012 at 06:10

This was your best podcast yet. A few supercoach nuggets, plenty of laughs!

    Jack · 13/06/2012 at 07:13

    Any one know if Tom Couch gonna get a game after the bye?

      NeedAnEdge · 14/06/2012 at 01:43

      Got plenty of footy for Casey last week but they have the bye this week which may slow him down.

      Tapscott suspended gives him a big show.

      TheAnointedOne · 14/06/2012 at 04:23

      You would think with Melbourne poor record he would have got a game….he has been in my team since round 1 treading water.

      Hope he gets a game and stays in….hard nut from little I have seen.

matty · 13/06/2012 at 07:11

Sam shaw

matty · 13/06/2012 at 07:14

Wat is Sam shaw's job security like ? Is he worth a trade ? I only have 8 left ..

The Peanut · 13/06/2012 at 07:27

I would love to trade Phillip in. My team could use his strength..

Thanks boys, I really enjoyed that.

I have 12 trades. How many does The Community think I should go into the finals with? I need to know as I am thinking of sidewaysing Gibbs for Priddis, or should I just sit tight for a few weeks?

the splinter · 13/06/2012 at 07:42

s. shaw has big wraps on him. seems to have been given the nod as the tall defender who runs off and would have the spot as his own ahead of the rest at the minute! keep in mind crows wont drop many games in the next few, so not many changes!

billy · 13/06/2012 at 08:45

hey guys

wondering if i could get your opinion on the following trades over the next few weeks, keeping in mind i have $628,800 in the salary cap. shame its not real money πŸ™‚

1. giles to goldstein

2. brad ebert to priddis

3. smedts/spurr/ellis/darley to waters

4. milera to boomer/rhino o'keefe

thoughts would be appreciated

    billy · 13/06/2012 at 08:50

    also, what is the ideal number of trades to have post bye rounds

      Mick · 13/06/2012 at 19:54

      24 would be ideal.

    Vinnie · 14/06/2012 at 05:35

    G'day Billy,

    I'd be leaving Giles in….he's a great ruckman and continue to get some 100+ scores being their number one ruckman.

    Not worth using up a trade there in my opinion…

      Mick · 15/06/2012 at 19:44

      1. Dont bother. If you MUST upgrade get maric.

      2. Not a horrible move, but won't be a great upgrade. Is there anyone better you can afford?

      3. Carazzo instead? Will be cheap after the bye – didnt hit his BE

      4. Either one of them is an upgrade. Cloke may be better though?

Braddles · 13/06/2012 at 09:16

Hi Billy,

Congrats on having so much banked away. will no doubt come in handy!

1. I like the Giles to Goldy trade.

2. Is Braddybert your worst midfielder? Otherwise with that much cash why not offload one of the GWS boys for Priddis?

3. If you can trade Beau for either Smedts or Spur that would be good, as they don't have any job security. At least the others are getting game time.

4. Go with RoK if you can afford him. Boomer is tired. And the Swans are looking a treat.

Not sure about trades, but i recall Higgo mention we should have at least 6 left for finals.

My 2cents.

Tim · 13/06/2012 at 23:38

PLZZZZZZZZZ HELP NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

who should i get for Brent Stanton – Rory Sloane or Nick Dal Santo

    Hubo · 13/06/2012 at 23:48

    Hi Tim,

    Stanton is a gun and if you already have him you should stick with him! Bet your bottom dollar he will come good.

    My thinking is also with Jobe Watson playing so well he will cop even more attention and hopefully allow Stanton more space to roam free once more!

    Surely you have some other midfielders to upgrade?

      Tim · 14/06/2012 at 06:45

      my midfield is ablett, pendlebury, selwood, priddis, stanton and dylan shiel

      Mick · 15/06/2012 at 19:46

      Teams aren't tagging watto because he plays so well even with a strong tag. But if you tag stanton he gets shut out. He will continue to get the tag.

    TheAnointedOne · 14/06/2012 at 04:27

    Just b/c Stanton has had a slow last 3 weeks.

    Don't jump off now….remember the good times of 150+ scores……

    Sloane will start to get the number 1 tag soon ahead of Thompson/Dangerfield.

      Tim · 14/06/2012 at 04:57

      thanks for all your help:) i just dont want him to keep this 80+ scores because its valueble points being lost.

      I only have $11,000 because i got priddis for treloar and now i have not enough to ugrade rookies to premiums.ill keep stanton for the time being and if he plays 2 more 80+ after the buy ill get rid off him

        TheAnointedOne · 14/06/2012 at 07:20

        Fair enough if 2 more sub 80 scores.

        Good strategy. Be wary of sideways trade it may come to hurt you come finals time….

          Tim · 14/06/2012 at 18:48

          yeh i will ugrade him to a jobe or a josh p and ill have enough to do it later. thanks

    Nick · 14/06/2012 at 23:43

    Even thought Dal is a better player, I would get Rory Sloane. Rory is younger and Adelaide will have a much better second half of the season. I expect the mighty Saints may fall away in the second half of this year. (I hope I'm wrong though cause I love the Saints).

laffer · 14/06/2012 at 04:02

Need to trade big sandi but dont know who to pick goldstein or mummy when his price drops in a cuppla weeks to around 450k. Worried bout hmac coming back but roos have a nice run now and mummy is always an injury risk… Thoughts?

Yoyo · 14/06/2012 at 04:38

I need some cash…..

Is there any good cheap players out there for downgrading???

Mr Hully · 14/06/2012 at 04:49

Does anyone know if there is going to be a partial lockout this round?

TheAnointedOne · 14/06/2012 at 04:50

OK…here is a get out of jail free card for those needing some $$$. Sam Gibson North Melbourne just been upgraded off Rookie list. SC $94,000!!!!

Jump on board…tough hard at it on baller.

Yep you heard it hear first on Jock Reynolds the super star!!!


JB · 14/06/2012 at 04:53

Gday fellas,

Do u think that holding off trading in the ruck would be worth while so I could bring in Shane Mumford when he hits bottum price. Hes a proven premium from last year and could get as low as 400k with a hugh break even at the moment.

The other option is to bring in Goldstein This week


    laffer · 14/06/2012 at 20:18

    I have the same dilemma. Thinking of holding off for mumford, he was at his very best late in the season last year and looking for the same again. Goldstein has an easy fixture now but not sure bout his role when hamish returns.

needs help · 14/06/2012 at 05:59

What's the go with matty kreuzer, is he just down on form or battling an injury?

Chillbills · 14/06/2012 at 06:00

Sir Jock. Definitely 3 votes this week.

Areeb Rizvi · 14/06/2012 at 10:35

Jock ive got 13 trades left and am looking to trade to zaharakis and jordan lewis?

possible candidates? and should i trade out lewis because hodge will be back soon?

Jack · 16/06/2012 at 03:40

Is Priddis's 131 good enough to put him as captain?

    Lachie · 16/06/2012 at 06:48

    not yet who else do u have

    Zimmer · 17/06/2012 at 00:48

    I'd take it. Considering what happened with Ablett last week.

Lachie · 16/06/2012 at 06:48
