Another week closer to the pointy end folks. Reckon Crouching, Higgo and I are taking the foot of the pedal? Hell no.

As I say to yas.. now is the time to STEP IT UP A GEAR. We’ve provided you with some words of wisdom from some good friends of the Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Community in the weeks podcast. A must for all who are fair dinkum about this caper.

Turn off those Olympics (unless you’re watching the ladies beach volleyball which is an impressive event) and tune into the podcast turning the Fantasy Footy straggler into the elite of the competition.

Jock son. I have assed in depth my finals run. I CANT make the four. I am currently sitting 5th and have a very easy match. But if i lose i can drop to 6th or 7th, no lower. Now if i finish 6th or 7th i have a FAR easier finals run than if i finish 5th. Because the best player has finished second and i can avoid him till the granny! Is it worth tanking to try and finish 6th. I am seriously considering it. Thoughts??


Adam, the simple answer is yes .. if you think you can an easier run to the grand final by finishing 6th then by all means tank .. if you aren't looking for overall win then there is no reason not too

G unit

Jock, I would suggest you check out the Polish Womens team on the indoor volleyball courts; far superior to any beach scenery.


Scotty Thompson, Nicky Dal or Marc Murph?

When is Broughton and Mummy coming back?

Is Goodesy's hammy bad?


Murph, Thompson, Nicky Dal in that order for me


Surgery on Thursday means broughton will be out for the rest of the season…

The Wanderer

Glad to hear the derivation of the word "sacrosanct". Strangely at odds with my Shorter Oxford's explanation, though…


Hello all.

I have 1 trade left.Im currently 5th with a good chance of finishing 3rd or forth.

I want Sam Shaw into my backline.

Should i trade out Yarran or Spurr or T.Mohr.

Or what do you think.Im around 100 points of beating the top Guys when i play them?.

Thanks for any help.

From SuperCoach and Jock website Addicted,(Wife hates us all because of it).But who cares Johnno


why would you want sam shaw?


Agree. Maybe you mean Heath Shaw. Sam Shaw isn't even playing.


he will soon thou he showed good form for a rookie he's not playing atm due to a minor eye injury but look for him to be named this week.

However I'm surprised someone would wanna burn a trade on him at this stage, esp when finals is a lock


Keep the trade for an injury. S Shaw isn't reliable


Thanks for all your good advice.

John C

Jock, Crouching and Higgo – Got my top score in supercoach ever this weekend gone with 2665 and in the top 4 of all my leagues. Thanks again for all the advice and help this season!!


Jock you have to get on to the gynastics as well! Ass ass and more ass gotta love the Olympics..

The Peanut

Soft tissue, sacrosanct, Wayno, …. !!!

You guys are hilarious. I stopped caring about my team but still listen.

GOLD Medal to Jock and Co.


Stanton did his hammy and might miss some time. Assuming it is confirmed, I have 1 trade left and $473,000

Can be a Mid, Fwd or Back.

I'm thinking Matthew Wright, but there isn't any players I really like for that money, does anyone have any tips?

Moontower Fullkegs

Nat Fyfe had a good hit out on first up return from injury. The guy is a proven supercoach performer and is DPP value.


Ah yeah forgot to add him in, cheers.

Any one else flying under the radar?


M.Murphy mate

John C

Don't think Murphy will be affordable. I am in almost the identical position with slightly more cash and am looking at either Fyfe or Dal Santo who's value has dropped but just had a great performance with 137


Murphy is too expensive. I thought about Dal Santo, but his form is pretty average this year.


Jock mate I owe you a massive thanks. Scored 2605 this week one short and with Lance Franklin, Dale Thomas and Greg Broughton out. The finals are looking good


Thoughts anyone? Who should I get as a premium?

Cotchin, Boyd or Murphy


You planning any other moves? I'd probably pick Cotchin, but if you need extra $ you could go for a slightly cheaper option like Murphy (Or even Nat Fyfe if you want to bring in a surprise pick).


The best explanation for the Weapons (Soft tissue) decimation of the Essendon Team..Brilliant.

3 Jock (The dumping of Newman & defending the Iinvisible One)

2 Higgo ( Sacrosant, good stuff & swearing r u at our level now?)

1 Tiger (Richmond cost me a 9 in Tips 2 weeks running & the Newman's playmaker tag)

Love the whole thing guys …Do not get syndicated.. To good for main stream…

Team scored 2400 odd, Lost. Still No. 1 in Bragging Rights Leauge and trades up my sleeve.

Bring it…See you guys next week and keep it up! FINALs Approching


Must have been a good week for SCers. I thought my 2654 was good, but there were some impressive results posted.

My final squad is completed, pending Buddy Franklin's return. Got 2 trades saved for finals, which is 2 less than I originally wanted, but I let bragging rights get the best of me last week and I made some moves to get Beams into my fwd line.

Big Easy

Jock, Fellas, All,

Have 6 trades left + 230k

will finish 2nd in league and will face the best side first up in finals.

am going to bring Murph in this week, leaves me with 5 for finals.

want to upgrade a mid to complete the line and will be able to afford anyone, currently have:






any suggestions considering potential resting / upcoming opposition etc??

cheers lads


S Thompson (if he isn't rubbed out) is a good pick because of Adelaide's finals run.

Dane Swan of course a great, safe pick.

Kieran Jack has been flying

Shane Tuck also amazing – good run home too and good POD (only 1% have him! amazing..)

Personally I would go with Shane Tuck. Averaging 130 over the last 5, easy run home with Lions Dogs Port all to come. No one else will have him and there is the potential for HUGE games of 150.


If you have the $, I would also get J Selwood instead of Murphy.

Only scored under 100 once this season, so is great for consistency. I wish I had him!


Gday guys,

I'm currently 3,4 and 8th in my leagues

I dont know what i should do with my 2 trades

ahould i keep them for finals?


trade Sewell to Murphy


trade Hargrave to Tom Bell and Motlop to Beams?


keep sewell , upgrade hargrave save 1 trade for premium players season ending injury

willys winners

Guys I made a bad trade last week, got rid of Giles for Jenkins and he gave me nothing. I got 4 trades and 60 K cash in the bank, whats the best option for me as I also have Sam Jacobs in my team and I dont want to Adelaide ruckman. Any help appreciated.!

Frank a lenco

just a sneaky one for a good POD, Griffen from Freo I reckon champ. will carry the ruck for the run home and an inform Freo should be a help to his score – check his graph out man.

also, first comment, so just wanted to thank Jock, Higgo, Crouching and the Slipper for a really fun year. I am a podcast addict. keep it up! thinking that you guys would be a monty to get a radio gig.


Made a bad trade, suck it up. What did you expect would happen?

Keep your trades for injuries and hope that Jenkins scores high next week. For that money you aren't going to get a good ruckman, plain and simple.



Would like to upgrade one of the following to Deleidio


Trelor (Mid can swap with Baguley)

Pfiffer (Mid can swap with Baguley)

Have the cash and the trades just really unsure on which one to lose..any suggestions?


For your bench guys you want consistency, knowing they can at least score 60-70 if they have to come in. Get rid of the guy you trust least.

For me, that's Treloar.

Also once Hibberd comes back, Bags will get dropped. Ellis will be good bench cover for Def.


Was thinking of trelor or pfiffer – Lids as Mids, then swapping Bags to Mid and Delidio to Back. Having that swing option Really could come in handy if needed as cover

Leaves me with

Goddard, Lids, Birchall, Carrazo, R.Shaw, Yarran, Lake (S.Shaw/Ellis)


Ablett, Bartel, Priddis, Cotchin, JPK, Pendles(Gibson/Baguly)





Looks good.


Only problem is that you have now lost your mid/fwd switch, but i guess can't win everything.


Cheers Mick

Ellis may be the week link the more i think about what cover i may need


Pfiffer for me, Treloar is in under the action and pushes forward to kick goals.


I've got 200k in the bank and 1 trade left. I'm open to making a trade anywhere on my team. What would you reccomend doing. My current team is


Deledio,Heppell,Enright,R Shaw,Lake,Carrazzo,(S Shaw, Darley)


Ablett,Pendlebury,Murphy,Priddis,Barlow, Gibbs(Rich,Gibson)


Goldstein,Kruezer,(stephensen,T Campbell)


Franklin,S Johnson, Zorko, J Riewoldt, D Martin,Dangerfield, Hawkins (Cloke, Smedts)


Also i don't have to make a trade this week, i'm sitting in 6th position but i could end up as high as third, i'm two points off but with a fairly easy game this week.


With an easy game this week, save the trade. Keep it for the inevitable injury and then upgrade to best player you can.


Upgrade Lake to best possible defender, like waters or HShaw, Goddard, Suckling, Birchall


reinforce your backline bench

darley -> goddard or lake


Do supercoach finals run the same as afl finals?

Should I upgrade Cloke to Fyfe or Malceski to Rance?


Same format, but start in two weeks. If trades are scarce, hold.


hey jock, love the podcast!

im currently sitting 10th in my league and must win by a large margin to sneak in the 8, but luckily im am playing 14th. this is my team:


deledio, goddard, brian lake, demspey, geary, tom bugg, mark baguley (sam shaw, smedts)


ablett, watson, selwood, thompson, stanton, zorko (sheringham, ledger)


ryder, redden (stephenson, derickx)


franklin, sidebottom, chapman, dangerfield, dayne beams, porplyzia (milera, ben warren)

what do you recommend i do from here, desperately need to make the 8.

thanks in advance 🙂


A ruckman, possibility of 0/0 with Ryder and Redden


yee i was thinking of that too but do you think i should make some cash to get someone like cox or maric for ryder? or just get someone i can afford from him?


Some cash and then bang them with Maric…Stephenson in this week



SC sittn 9th in my cash league, top 4000 overall

struggling with s.shaw t.mohr s.darley not gettn games

1 trade left ( was saving for prem inj )

can trade mohr for duffield or rivers

or shaw for dougharty or or baguley

advice please

injury status on shaw mohr , will darley play finals



my team is

deludio goddard suckling carazzo dempsey poupolo

s.shaw ( mohr darley )

ablett pendlebury thompson selwood rockliff priddis

( sidebottom mcdonald )

natanui giles ( stephenson patterson )

franklin roughead pavlich dangerfield pearce martin

porplesia ( zorko treloar )


You need a swing set my friend and get sidebottom into your forwards .

Swing Treloar/Sidebottom. Would rather see Zorko on the field than Porplesia as well when buddy comes back.


trading franklin, who do you recommend i get?

Sam Winter

Worth burning my last trade to get rid of Broughton. I was going to get Michael Johnson, with 38k in the bank I can just afford him. I have good cover on the bench for him though. I have Smedts and Spurr with Sam Shaw on the field. Johnson's break even is 83 which he should get. Thoughts?
