AFL Supercoach 2012 tips guru Jock Reynolds

Gday there community – hope you had a sensational weekend!

Hows this for a list of Fantasy Footy spuds this week…. The Magnifent Mullet of Maric, Kurt Tippett, Jon Giles all out. Travis Cloke, Greg Broughton, Steele Sidebum, Big Cox, NicNat, Nick Dal Santo, Michael Johnson, Mat Suckling Pig, Chris Newman, Sam Fisher, Paul Duffield all scoring rubbish.

Here at the Jock Reynolds Community we stare disaster in the face and make a bloody mockery of it. We turn the negative into the positive. The struggler into the Fantasy Footy Elite.

Listen in for another week as Jock, Petter Higginbotham and Crouching guide you towards a sensational Round 17 of Supercoach and Dreamteam.


James · 16/07/2012 at 10:04

Giles out for David Hille?

    Robbie · 17/07/2012 at 01:29

    dunno bout hills JS – big bellchimes played yet another solid game…when ryder comes in maybe hill will go out……

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:03

    Gday there James old son. Thanks for droppin in. Mate – reckon the Crouching One would say BURN on the old Hille. Just too much injury concern for mine… I like to look of good old Big Ben McEvoy in the ruck.. gonna come home like a train

billy · 16/07/2012 at 10:08

scored 2250, despite having maric, cloke, clarke, smedts, sidebum, hawkins, harvey and stanton stinking it up. imagine what will happen when my team plays well

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:04

    great stuff Billy

Dan · 16/07/2012 at 10:17

Scored 2318 with cloke, broughton, adcock, r shaw and D smith all scoring under 70. Had Boyd as captain who got me 282. Okeefe, Jacobs, porps and lids doing me well. Not a bad week. !

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:06

    Hells Bells Dan – not a bad week at all eh!

Adam Kneale · 16/07/2012 at 10:30


Guys i am in a pickle. I still have t.Adams and giles on field. I only have 3 trades and 65k in the bank. Now i know most of you will say HOLD!! But, i can't. I understand why i should hold but to be honest. I would prefer to go in with a great looking team with 1 trade then having holes. I NEED to ditch both. I don't want anyone to tell me to hold.

I would like to upgrade both, probrably giles to mummy. And not sure about adams. Can anyone help me. Is there any smart way i can get cash to upgrade both but still have 1 trade??

    The Peanut · 16/07/2012 at 10:37

    Aside from getting Peter Jank …. created game …. To hack into your team, you is screwed man.

    Tend to agree with slipper re: Cloke. I am over him turding up my forward line.

    Thanks boys – another great show!

      Adam Kneale · 16/07/2012 at 10:40

      whose peter jank??

        Jake · 16/07/2012 at 11:09


      Phantom · 16/07/2012 at 22:12

      Who goes first ? Scored 23 odd on weekend but I have dilemma have both spuds in Travis cloke n broughton also kruzer with 5 left to trade its time for to go. I have been Keep faith with broughton but he fwd line role is no good cant see him approving . Also same prob wit cloke missing on lot points thinking rok he is prime now

        Dools · 17/07/2012 at 04:58

        My 5 cents worth Cloke represents a absolute Gem yes he got 41 but imagine what he will score when he fires on all cylinders. 1 game will change everything for him and his SC output. You score well with him unless your chasing the weekly prise money I say hold and at the moment he has to be a GPD for any team. There are no reasonable deals for the price of the invisable one (The week you Trade I promise he will fire. It's happened to me all Bloody year)

        Boughton is the one to trade he is not right after injury and is not trusted by the freo team to do what he used to do.

        bring in a Carazzo, Shaw (either one) or Enright. Sorry about the lenght of this but I hope you get something outa this…

          Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:09

          Gday there Dools and Phanto. Great input you lads.

          Phanto – (great to see you drop in old son) – gott agree with the talented young Dools on this one mate. I's strongly suggest you hand onto Cloke he will rise again. Gotta say as well… I'm at this stage leaning towards hanging onto Broughton for just one more week as a wait n see.

      Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:07

      Peanut – you;re a good fella and thanks for the kind words. CLoke… mate.. I'm still gonna hang onto him ya know? Sure ah hell as soon as you drop him he'll come out and kick 13.

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:06

    Sorry Adam old son… dont have any other answer than the one you don;t wanna here my old mate!

Marc · 16/07/2012 at 10:59

I tell you what, I was at the Freo/Melbourne game, I was sitting with the Freo supporters down by the goals, lovely people, but come midway through the 3rd quarter it took the entire Freo cheersquad to stop from storming the coaches box so I could yell at Ross Lyon for subbing Broughton.

Ivan Maric, you almost broke my heart by not playing, but lucky for me I had (Leroy) Jenkins on the bench as an emergency. I grabbed McEvoy a fortnight ago at Jocks suggestion as my Giles replacement, just add it to the list of things I owe you for Jock.

So what to do with my forwards? I've got Franklin injured, a million dollar invisible man (Cloke), a fading Sidebottom, an up and down Boomer Harvey, insomniatic Dusty Martin , a decent Saad and a beaut in Zorko. I'm trying to hold my nerve and not trade Franklin, but it's mighty tempting to trade him for Pav or ROK or Stevie J or someone and then trade Cloke for another $500,000 odd forward.

And that brings me to back Broughton. I'm at the point where I may start Brandon Ellis over him. But I figure if I'm gonna bench the guy, wouldn't I be better off just trading him for that Bagley and pocketing about $300,000 from the deal. As I've only got 6 trades left I'm trying not to trade, but i'm getting frustrated with some non-performers in my side.

Crouching One, you get the 3 votes for battling through a tough loss and delivering a quality performance on the podcast.

    Mick · 17/07/2012 at 04:41

    I'd love to know what's going on with Broughton… I wouldn't be caught dead watching a freo game (rather stick needles in my eye!) but it seems amazing that Greg is stuck in the fwd line, but constantly pooing it up

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:13

    Gday there Marc. Yes – was a might performance by the great Crouching One under considerable strain. Poor bugger.

    Mate – I'm gonna hold onto the Brought for just 1 more week (provided he isn't dropped) This caper changes just too quickly these days to risk the annurism you'll have if Ross The Boss decides to run him through the midfield.

    Could be Ross the Boss playing funny buggers… could be Broughton out of favour… gonna just keep him in for the extra week to suss it out old mate

      Marc · 17/07/2012 at 09:01

      Agree with the 1 more week, worst comes to the worst and he has another shocker he can be swapped for someone like Yarran or Baguley. Plus I have terrible luck in these things and he's almost guaranteed to improve if I trade him. Maybe I should do the whole JR community a favour and get rid of him if thats the case :).

Vinnie · 16/07/2012 at 11:34

Freo play GWS this week….Broughton, Pav, MJ should have a blinder.

Cloke playing against Haw should return a decent score, so holding him also.

Think the time is nigh to cash in on Billie Smedts.

Giles will have a big game against Fro incidentally also

I'm aiming to get Jacobs and Thompson in for finals time so will be holding off trading despite the risk of another loss and sitting 7th right now in my league.

If you have to trade out Cloke, Petrie looks to be in red hot form with a tasty prospect of the Tiggers this week

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:14

    fantastic suggestions there Vinne. Petrie is looking bloody good. A real good bloke too ya know?

Mark_why · 16/07/2012 at 20:40

@thecrouchingone 3 Votes.

Big Jock gets the 2 and Higgo..I afraid, gets the 1.

Crouching One gets the 3 for the elephant sized jatz crackers required to perform at that level after a devasting weekend.

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:15

    It did take considerable testicular fortification to turn up at the podcast let alone perform in the manner he did. Agree with ya Mark

JohnnoB · 16/07/2012 at 21:06

3 votes for you Higgo, your Richmond ginger theory is brilliant. Loved it. 1.5 votes for crouching and jock. Slipper and jocks nephew deserve votes also.

Thanks guys

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:16

    The Ginger theory has real legs mate. Let me tell ya that there have been news hounds sniffin round the Higginbotham residence all bloody day after an interview with our man. A great honour to work with him

benus · 16/07/2012 at 22:45

higgo, as a ginger myself I must say – 3 votes to you hahaha

Dwain · 17/07/2012 at 00:21

Scored 2365, choice of captain was my main mistake should've gone with Johnson or Boyd, instead of Redden, Got first position back on my league Jock's Jokers, gonna be hard keeping it, with such quality opposition.

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:16

    Great stuff Dwain! Mate – to have the wood on yours truly is a fine achievement indeed. Pool room stuff mate.

      Dwain · 17/07/2012 at 09:05

      Thanks Jock, I think its been alot of luck along the way for me, your website is great and I have had alot of fun along the way, I was lucky enough to get a spot in the league, hopefully all of us can have a league together next year. All the best for the finals…

    Sam · 18/07/2012 at 09:00

    Hey Dwain I scored 2365 as well!!!

      Dwain · 21/07/2012 at 01:35


Benny.. · 17/07/2012 at 01:01

Did C.Enright get reported on the weekend?? Or are my mates playing games?

    Dools · 17/07/2012 at 05:01

    Joel Corey not Cory Enright

Steve · 17/07/2012 at 02:11

Want to upgrade Giles into a premium, have plenty of money in the kitty……Cox, Jacabs, Roughy, Maric or Big boy Macavoy…..Thoughts???

    Mick · 17/07/2012 at 04:36

    Jacobs – has a good run in the SC finals.

    super · 17/07/2012 at 06:41

    beny mcevoy any day of the week

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:18

    I'd probably go Big Ben McEvoy mate.. matching Jacobs point for point over the last 3, still has improvement to come this season and Melbourne during the all important Rd 1 finals clash

    Marc · 17/07/2012 at 09:05

    I'd say McEvoy over Jacobs just on the chance that Sanderson *may* start reducing Jacobs workload in the ruck until the finals as he's been busting his guts in there for them. He did rest down forward a bit against GWS, but managed to snag a couple of goals to keep his score high.

Tim · 17/07/2012 at 03:14

I have traded out t.bugg for m.baguley to get $219,000 in the bank and then to upgrade d.shiel to a premium. I have 607,000 in the bank when i trade d.shiel but i dont know when i should trade him because after i do that trade i will have no more trades for the rest of the year

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:20

    Gday there Tim – tough spot you're in there son… where are you on the ladder mate? I'd tend towards just holding onto that last trade till the next season ending injury comes along…. bit of a waste of $$$ though eh?

      Tim · 18/07/2012 at 06:14

      in my best league im 9th and got a tough run home but my 2nd league im 7th and probably go up a few more spots cause i got a easy run home their. ill hold the shiel trade for a while until i can get a swan or a watson.

      This is my team

      Def: Deliedio, goddard, lake,, carrazzo, ellis, bugg. Bench smedts & spurr

      Mid: Ablett, pendlebury, j.selwood, pridis, stanton, a.kennedy. Bench: shiel & wingard

      Ruck: nic nat, giles. Bench Redden & stephenson

      Fwd: Franklin, sidebottom, dangerfield, O'keefe, n.riewoldt, cloke, zorko. Bench: Paine & crozier


      thinking of downgrading bugg to baguley

      then soonish upgrade shiel

      Any other thoughts please say! thanks

        Sam · 18/07/2012 at 09:08

        Tim I think u should trade Shiel to Scott gumbleton and upgrade bugg

Robbie · 17/07/2012 at 03:43

Okay, anyone can help me here. Got 4 trades left, thinking of getting rid of Giles for Hille? Only have $36,000 in the bank.


    Mick · 17/07/2012 at 04:38

    If you do it, don't expect great scores from Hille. Probably won't score over 100.

    JS might not be great once Ryder gets back either, but only if the bombers FWD line stays healthy. Hille is a better FWD than Bellcho, but if Gumby stays healthy then once Ryder gets back the team balance may be better with Ryder+Bellcho.

    If you can downgrade somewhere else, I think it's worth the extra trade to get a prem ruckman. Otherwise, save your trade on Hille. (Unless Giles doesn't play again)

      Dwain · 17/07/2012 at 09:10

      Get rid of Giles for the cheapest player on the list and use the cash to up grade, a player on your team that is 'struggling' to a premium.

      E.g. Giles for Pattison

whiteless · 17/07/2012 at 03:51

the real question is jock with Goddard coming back in who goes out for him? ive got Lids, Johnson, Carrazzo, Lake, H.Shaw, Adcock and Sam shaw on the ground, all of them are scoring well…

How far away is wolf boy? is it worth waiting for him to come back for finals? a good upgrade option for the million dollar man Cloke

Cheers guys

    Darren · 17/07/2012 at 08:12

    who is wolf boy? lol

      Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:22

      Teen Wolf Nat Fyfe? I'll have to check in with my Fremantle contacts for some oil on that one mate. Have you got the capability to slap Goddard in the guts mate? You could use the new rookies Bagulay or Luke Brown (MID/DEF DPPs) to open up a swing set eh?

Mick · 17/07/2012 at 04:39

I have 2 trades left, team is running well, but I'm considering Stanton for Murphy.


    Darren · 17/07/2012 at 08:13

    You know what will happen if you do that don't you?

    Murphy will start copping a heavy tag! lol

    Jock · 17/07/2012 at 08:23

    agree with Dazzlin there Mick – a few risks.. Murphy may have pulled up sore after his first back game.. and also Murphy will cop the hard tag usually reserved for Juddlington

JB · 17/07/2012 at 06:10

Gday fellas

What should i do with patty ryder?? I only have 5 trades left and i have redden on the bench. Should i trade him or not?

    Darren · 17/07/2012 at 08:14

    I'd play redden if named till the first round of finals and then sideways paddy ryder if he isn't playing, but thats just me…

    Can you afford to do that in your league position?

      JB · 17/07/2012 at 08:30

      Im third in my league but playing the top team this week.

Dan · 17/07/2012 at 07:45

Should i upgrade

a) treloar for beams

b) horsley for thompson?

what do you think would be the better option?

    Tim · 17/07/2012 at 07:55

    both if you can do both, but i think B)

    Adam Kneale · 17/07/2012 at 09:48

    i like b

TheMentalEdge · 17/07/2012 at 10:04

Here's the situation community:

I have 18k left and 4 trades

I went for a bit of point of difference and tried out Ziebell this year, has been ok but now with him out for 3 weeks what do I do? There is really no quality players under 400k that I can pick up that will start! BUT! I have Beau Waters still on the line, do I make a double trade and have 2 remaining for the season? Suggestions please!

    TheMentalEdge · 17/07/2012 at 10:05

    Those 2 put together would equal 928k for a back and mid (both starting on filed)

    Mick · 18/07/2012 at 03:39


    Dools · 18/07/2012 at 05:54

    G'day Dan, Sorry for the late responce.Your question grabbed me; who is value for $400K? I spent a while reflecting on it, Ziebell's Avg is 82 and change his 3 rnd Avg is 86. I suggest Clancee of the Overflow Freo I think he is on the rise Avg near 84 and 3 rnd Avg is around 94.5 bonus of fwd/ mid DPP. Leaves you with 3 Trades to cover the carnage that this years AFL has produced. Do you fell lucky? The Sherrin Gods have been fickle with me but at least this is a starting point for you……

G unit · 17/07/2012 at 15:29

I would like to add these blokes to the list of stinking spuds for the week Jock;

Allen Christ's Son

Also mentioned in dispatches should be:

Jonathon 'Kano' Brown

Running Man Dempsey

Goodes and Services

I want more from Boomer and Jono Brown, too many down days.

Second versus third on the weekend and I should of got a win with my superior depth (1.5mil on the pine) but copped the it in the spuds from suckling, cloke, christo and had jono brown, kruzer, dog dog, dempsey, sidebum and goodes battle. Anyway that's my vent from Lithuania. Good work on the podcasts lads, loving them.

Train · 17/07/2012 at 20:51

Hey all,

I'm going to upgrade Giles, What's peoples opinions, Jacobs or Nic Nat?

    Mick · 18/07/2012 at 03:38

    Nic nat has been super consistent – i'd go with him

      Dan · 18/07/2012 at 07:34

      Nic nat has averaged 100 over his past 3 games and struggled against sydney supercoach wise.

      Jacobs has averaged 130 for the past 3 games and for the run home has melbourne, brisbane and gold coast. He comes up against cox and nic nat this week but i would go jacobs.

Dools · 17/07/2012 at 22:36

G'day Train, Dog Dog mate dog dog. Why? Great Talent, Great job security, Proven SC performer and can score Very Very BIG

Jared · 18/07/2012 at 06:26

I can afford any ruck,

Who should I get?

    Benny.. · 18/07/2012 at 07:21

    McEvoy or Jacobs.. That's me..

      Dools · 18/07/2012 at 08:42

      You gota go Cox. Creme dela Creme . plays back, plays fwd, plays midfield.. Is there nothing he can't do ..oh and he kicks goals like an angry mule…
