The ULTIMATE Supercoach & DT team building resource

Published by Jock on

The time has come folks!

I’ve been in this AFL Fantasy Footy caper for 37 years. You’d reckon the excitement of Supercoach and/or Dreamteam opening day would wear thin. Nup. Like a kid on bloody Christmas eve at this time of the year.

It has been a HUGE pre season at Jock Central. The biggest in our 2 years on the world wide internet. We thought it would be handy for you to have this page as a quick reference to help you with your team construction. We have been cranking out resources since late last year and now is the time to get stuck right into our studies. Remember. You can be born with as much Supercoach or AFL Fantasy talent as you like. The bloke willing to bust his guts on the hard yards will ALWAYS come up trumps in this caper.

Now.. as I say this time of year every year.. for God’s sake… don’t outsmart yourselves this season! The basics will always apply regardless of how many trades we have, how many bye rounds we need to endure and how many players swing between positions.

Let us know how your team is shaping up in the comments below.. but first here is an index of our preseason material to help you all out,

And always remember – Jock loves ya.


  • We’ve been crankin em out since mid December folks.. listen here on the site or subscribe on the iTunesThe Community Never Sleeps! The best resource you will find regarding team selection in 2013 by the length of the Flemington straight.

Game Strategy:

Best of luck folks!! Now don’t be a stranger – drop us a line below and let us know how your team is lookin!

Great work Jock, love ya work mate….__I am not sure if I will be able to sleep tonight, very excited indeed.__Do u know of any leagues I can join, looking to win some cash. Cheers__Rex

    jockreynolds · 31/01/2013 at 20:19

    great stuff Rex! I'll have a rest after some Bonox… but will be up at sparrows fart in the morning.. joined the Jock Premier League mate? Got till midnight – no $$ though

jimbotraralgon · 31/01/2013 at 20:23

great idea having all the resources in one post. good work guys.

would love to see the jock reynold, crouching tigers and higgo teams posted (and of course the new boys in the team).

As I have no life outside supercoach, here we go….

D/ Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Broughton, Staker, Pittard (Thurlow, Terlich)
M/ Gaz, Pendles, Cotchin, Shuey, Fyfe, Ball, K Mitchell, O'Mearer (Crouch, Viney)
R/ Mummy, Berger (Currie, Osbourn)
F/ Roughy, Rocky, Dusty, Breust, Varcoe, Mayes (Kerridge, Lee)

Osbourn is an intention donut for the captain loophole.

    jockreynolds · 31/01/2013 at 20:26

    I bloody like the look of this team Jimbo. A few I'd change here and there but this is a formidible outfit you have put together here. Ball I'm iffy on.. no Franklin is a lovely touch I like it… Duff man is growing on me as the year goes on… love it

    choppers · 01/02/2013 at 10:18

    I like your team, Jimbo. Pretty solid. My team is very similar but with 8 changes(5 rookies and Shuey,Ball,Fyfe). Good luck!

Boydo · 31/01/2013 at 20:59

How’s this Jock

Goddard Gibbs Hartlett Thurlow Goodes Docherty Terlich Colquhoun

Gazza Swan Pendles JSelwood Cotchin Maloney Toumpas Crouch OMeara Viney

Mummy Berg Currie Witts

Cox Rocky Martin Bock Varcoe Byrnes T Lee Staker

Is it true Mundy is struggling with his ankles again? Love to hear from you about my team.

    jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 21:27

    similar approach we both ahve Boydo.

    I have the 5 prem, 1 midprice, 4 rookies midfield as well.

    As you were looking at similar players, I would like you opinion on why you chose Moloney over Ball? and the Toumpas over Koby Stevens?

    I was eyeing them both off but went Ball and Stevens. Wonder why you went the other way? and were there anyone else you looked at in those spots?.

      Boydo · 02/02/2013 at 00:15

      Thanks for your response jimbo went Maloney based on free running role in Lions team preseason news has said he is training strongly I think he should score similar to 2011 with a higher avg than Ball also Jock has reported Ball is still not right and worried he might start slow. Toumpas is not really set could change to wines or Stevens. If Mundy is fully fit and there are enough back rookies picked round 1 may change squad structure completely Hartlet to bock bock to stringer Toumpas to Mundy.

Tim · 31/01/2013 at 21:23

Hey jock and the lads loving your stuff helped me out with my team and hoping you could have a quick glance and see how it’s going thanks

Here we go
Def:Goddard, Duffman, Gibbs, Broughton, Colquhoun, Terlich, Stevenson, docherty

Mid:GAJ, Pendles, Cotchin, Murphy, mundy, moloney, Stevens, Viney, Crouch, O’meara

Ruck: Goldy, Berger, Currie, Rowe

Fwd: Franklin, Cox, Rockliff, Varcoe, Staker, lee, Kerridge, Murdoch

$67,200 left in the bank
Might use it up to upgrade Murdoch to Mayes or keep for changes to come during the Nab

    TheBIGShot · 01/02/2013 at 01:06

    Dunno TIm.. have you allowed enough growth for rookies in the mids? Surely they are gunna make the most $$$? Maybe drop one of your mid price mids and bolster the fwd line>? Or not.

    jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 21:29

    like the look of Mayes….alot…..he is a lock for me at F6

Shane · 31/01/2013 at 21:27

I won’t post my final team but let me say what a huge help you have been old son. I will say that Im very excited about Atley down back along with my 5 Premium mids and Varcoe and my start up team has never been stronger and for that I have you to thank Jock. Can’t wait for Sunday night!

    jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 21:33

    now now Shane…..

    time to repay the community mate 😉

    now cmon, what have you learned from the magnificence of Jock? 😉

    TheBIGShot · 01/02/2013 at 01:02

    Hey Joey. Lookin good, but be super cautious on those two balls (Zieball, Ball,) as neither might start round one. Keep an on those 2.

    Also how many did you pick in the mids.. 10 this year.

      Joey · 01/02/2013 at 21:38

      sorry was unaware, on it

    jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 21:36

    good side mate.

    but the jokes? dear dear me……..

    how much money in the bank? team seems a little light for premiums.

      Joey · 02/02/2013 at 10:53

      yeah i realised i had a lot of left over dough so i have made many changes

      Goddard Pearce Duffman Gibbs Pedersen Docherty (terlich colquhon)

      Swan Cotchin Selwood Rockliff Fyfe PLAYER X(sorry a secret), Mundy, O meara (crouch viney)

      Goldfinger, BergerEdge (witts curry)

        jimbotraralgon · 02/02/2013 at 12:03

        joey. Robbie Gray is a very likely non starter round 1. the talk is more 4 weeks in.

        and that's ok joey, I can guess that it Gaff based on the position in the list and the relative prices of Fyfe and Mundy. 😉

        cheers mate.

          Joey · 03/02/2013 at 13:25

          nahh its not gaff its a bit off centre, cheers for the gray heads up

Jamma · 01/02/2013 at 00:41

Dangerfield or Jelwood? Help anyone

    Shimma · 01/02/2013 at 17:33

    Dangerfield for me

    Watto · 03/02/2013 at 19:29

    Danger for me too but Jelwood is a nice POD

BMO · 01/02/2013 at 02:29

    G’day Shezza, Intresting team posted. I know I 3 days late but just saw it so if someone else has posted forgive me

    Hartlet injury prone upside can play big
    Pittard and Van the Man unlikely staters
    From a post I read yesterday? The days blurr..Colquun has no bulk / size to him
    Staker is no guarenteed starter but he is an emergancy
    Love the R1 and R2 also like Prem mids Nice playing ZFwd line heard a (unfounded)rumour that Macaffer is not good to go by Rnd 1

antlee · 01/02/2013 at 08:56

Jamma · 01/02/2013 at 12:45

Pav, ryder, or bartel?
Money nor RUC versatility is an issue as ive already got nic nat in the fwd line.

    Benno · 01/02/2013 at 13:08

    Nic Nat is expected to miss the first few rounds with injury, he wants to play but the club won't risk it. They said they want him 100% for the second half and won't rush him back.

      Jamme · 01/02/2013 at 13:15

      Oh thanks for that mate,
      Already got buddy and pav in the forward line, what other premium should I bring in? Thoughts anyone?

        Shimma · 01/02/2013 at 17:31


Davo · 01/02/2013 at 14:00

I have the Berg-man in the ruck, and cox up forward, who should I get as a premium ruck?
Thinking Ryder or McEvoy, thoughts?

    Davo · 01/02/2013 at 14:03

    And to add to that^ maybe even roughy?

    @MRB37 · 02/02/2013 at 12:52

    Like McEvoy personally.

    Watto · 03/02/2013 at 19:33

    Bellchambers is taking the no 1 ruck at essendon so id go McEvoy out of those two

Eastern Shanks FC · 01/02/2013 at 17:30

Could someone help me out here please? I'm liking Duffield this year but I've worked up enough money to upgrade him to Gibbs. What do you guys think? Duff or Gibbs

    jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 22:27

    like them both….who else do you have back there?

      Eastern Shanks FC · 02/02/2013 at 00:34

      yeah my back line is pretty weak haha. atm it is Duffield/Gibbs, Hartlett, Broughton, Bock, B.Goodes, Docherty (Colquohon, Terlich)

        jimbotraralgon · 02/02/2013 at 10:17

        would go duff and Gibbs before harlett

        Davo · 02/02/2013 at 19:57

        I personally like Hartlett this year^

        dools · 04/02/2013 at 19:05

        Bock is broken mate from my pals in Brisvagas still in a bloody moon boot as of last thursday wont be back to full running until Min 2 weeks away implies will not start NAB therefore will not be up for rnd 1

The_qwert · 01/02/2013 at 18:30

Who do you all think are the best premium defenders to have? Shaw, Goddard, birchall even?

    Tiim · 03/02/2013 at 02:03

    Goddard will play in mid for dons

jimmy · 01/02/2013 at 20:12

Just wanting to know krakouer or varcoe??

    dools · 04/02/2013 at 19:09

    Intresting Jimmy, He is up and about excitment player Krakour excitment and bargain basement price too. IMO Varcoe over Kraker at this stage until you see NAB but I was leaning towards both if fit and in top 22
    Like the thought mate imagine that…Both ripping up rnd 1 and Cha-ching!!!

Lachie · 01/02/2013 at 21:00

Is Krakouer an option this year?

    jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 22:26

    not imo

DanButler · 01/02/2013 at 21:10

Can you have a look at my team and give me some feedback. Much appreciated.
Gibbs Hartlett Broughton lake goodes Staker (van un terlich)

Swan Pendles Cotchin Sloane Fyfe Stevens crouch O’Meara (Kerridge Viney)

Goldy luey (Curry mcbean)

Def: B.Goddard, D.Pearce, G.Broughton, S.Atley, N.Vlastuin, B.Goodes Subs: S.Docherty, S.Colquhoun

Mid: Gazza, Joel selwood, Gibbs, fyfe, caddy, ball, T.Menzel, B.Crouch, subs : O’meara, viney

Ruck:Goldy, leunberger, subs:Currie and Mcbean

Forwards: Buddy, cox, bartel, Petrie, Krakouer, Varcoe, subs: Danhier and B.Staker

Love the work your doing jock. Petrie?? Also should I keep Krakouer AND Varcoe. Caddy and Ball?

    jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 22:22

    not a fan of Krakouer, maybe Mayes?

    petrie ok but less convinced by bartel. he is heading the wrong wall. (see jock's bartel artical. Breust or Martin could be a consideration.

    if you have the coin Moloney rather than Caddy?

    good mate.

tim · 01/02/2013 at 21:41

hey guys i need your advice badly, so could everyone please help

backline: goddard gibbs duffman broughton terlich colquhoun thurlow docherty

midfield: ablett pendlebury cotchin murphy mundy moloney stevens viney o'meara crouch

ruck: goldstein leuenberger currie rowe

forward: franklin cox rockliff varcoe staker mayes kerridge lee

i have 3 brisbane players in my forward line and i need them to
also should i downgrade mundy to k.mitchell and upgrade staker to roughhead then put staker in backline.
can someone please help me with this because im in a puzzle

jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 22:14

no worries tim…….lets see what we can do.

back 4 premiums = all good
back 4 rookies = all good although I prefer staker up back.
mid 4 premiums = solid. My preference was to find a way to get murphy to swan. Gives you 3 absolute keepers, no questions. prehaps downgrade moloney to K Mitchell giving you Swan if you are interested…
mid rookies = all good.
Fwd premiums = solid although manged to get martin in as the 4th 'Premium' as I turned franklin into Breust, 3rd 'Premium'. (assumption I know)
Fwd rookies = all good
rucks = all good

phew…all done

    tim · 01/02/2013 at 22:26

    thanks jimbo im gonna get swan later in the year because IMO swan has before last half of the season.
    and with martin i cant afford him if i get swan and i have 167k in the bank and i wouldnt know what to do with it
    but if i did the swan mover what should i do with my team then?

      jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 22:40

      yeah tim…did the maths and $50k short. bugger that.

      i would try to get K Mitchel in there but I would downgrade Moloney.

      Mundy is more likely value for money

        tim · 01/02/2013 at 22:51

        if i down grade moloney i would have 239k but thats with murphy and with swan 167k, should i just hold the cash for trading time at the start of the season 🙂

          jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 23:03

          hey tim.

          just some ideas for you to think about,

          if you don't have clear objective for the money sit tight till a plan forms in your head.

          I have learned enough from Jock to know that sometimes we make changes for the sake of it.

          People will suggest lots of things (like me -oops) but I would now only make a change when you are sure.

          You have a structurally strong side…..try not to muck with the foundations.

            tim · 01/02/2013 at 23:15

            thanks jimbo you have been a whole lot of help
            i have a plan if i get fyfe instead of swan i have 343k left and i upgrade staker to martin and swap thurlow to staker the bad thing is i cant afford if im 3k short but if i do the captain loophole and have a 96k pllayer in the ruck ill have enough to get him. also to do the loophole i will get rid of rowe, and do you think he will get a game this season?
            if so then the martin trade wont be worth it cause i can make money with rowe

              jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 23:28

              hey tim.

              dont think rowe will play much. 3 rucks ahead of him.

              i picked osbourn cause adelaide have few sunday games.

              I would consider doing those changes

                tim · 01/02/2013 at 23:38

                with those changes i have 14kin the bank

        choppers · 02/02/2013 at 10:57

        Hey jimbo, I've been following this forum for a while and I like the way you think. Obviously Jock is a good teacher. So can you run the ruler over this team and let me know what you think?
        DEF: Gibbs,Duffman,Heppel,Broughton,Pittard,Thurlow (Docherty,Terlich)

        $113,200 left.
        Can upgrade Heppel to Goddard which leaves $21,700. What do ya think?

          Jimbotraralgon · 02/02/2013 at 12:31

          like it alot choppers.

          leave backline . all good

          in fact whole side good.

          just wonder if jpk will be able to repeat the dose. maybe go straight to swan and have the best 3 years end.

            choppers · 03/02/2013 at 17:28

            Done. Swan at M2 and $81K left. Might also bring K Mitchell in for Colquhoun. I'll wait for NAB though. Thanks for advice.

jimbotraralgon · 01/02/2013 at 22:16

    NO GAZ!!! :O

jimbotraralgon · 02/02/2013 at 12:04

community…….community service announcement.

Please place a big red 'contract delayed till end of season. WARNING! Cloke?' and then trade out franklin from your sides and place immediately on your watchlist for further monitoring.

This one will go on for a while and may just get as ugly as Cloke's. Dont forget Buddy is old housemates with Wellingham and where does he live now.

Imagine what happens if he puts in a shocking first 3 rounds….pumps out 60's…it will be a circus.

And then the Dockers then put an offer the biggest ever seen. As a guess $1.25 million dollars a year for 4 years. No personal KPI's.

And then imagine we find out that he is one of the self-reporting drug users.


Guys, I can see this stuff in the tea leaves clear as a bell, The Zoo is open for business.

    rexinator · 02/02/2013 at 12:59

    he has too much talent and ability to score 60's consistently in my humble opinion.

    yes it is likely he will leave hawthorn at the end of 2013 but he will want to play well to bump his score up..

    buddy is a must have

    tim · 02/02/2013 at 21:53

    great thinking jimbo im with you this one he will drop down price to about 500k-550k by round 6-8

      jimbotraralgon · 02/02/2013 at 22:09

      in some ways, the most likely scenario could be the worst.

      Where he turns from a 120 pt player into a 95 – 105 point player.

      He is not playing well but doing enough to keep you hopeful that he is about to turn the corner.

        Eastern Shanks FC · 03/02/2013 at 18:17

        scary thoughts

rexinator · 02/02/2013 at 12:56

well well well

what are peoples opinion on B THORNTON's move to the GWS..

he will attract plenty of game time and surely will rack of plenty of easy possessions.. at 318,000 dt price, that is not too bad at all..

please give me your thoughts readers


    Watto · 03/02/2013 at 19:41

    Thornton will def get plenty of game time and will surely play a big part in the giants defense imo. Ive got him in my side. hope this helps

    rexinator · 02/02/2013 at 14:11

    goodes is on the rookie list.. hmm I would not go with him.

    brian lake is a possible option to boost your numbers down back,

    martin up forward is a big risk, safer bet would be mark lecras

      @MRB37 · 02/02/2013 at 17:18

      Bullies still have 1 spot left to upgrade a rookie, I believe. Watch Goodes during NAB, if he plays well he'll probably get a senior spot.

footywinter7 · 02/02/2013 at 13:12

With Gazza as number 1 premium, who are you guys going with as your number 2?

    Tiim · 03/02/2013 at 01:57

    Leunberger at 301k is a steal check out 2011 stats

The benchmark · 02/02/2013 at 13:44

Jock old son what are your thoughts on L.Hodge?
If he peaks again its an easy 100k back in the kitty

rexinator · 02/02/2013 at 14:14

luke parker would be a safer option if u are looking at boosting your money,

or even b moloney

    The benchmark · 02/02/2013 at 14:30

    Im not looking entirely to gain cash from him. But when he is220k less than swan, im wondering if i bank him to return to his proven premium scores. And seeing that a lot of people already have similar teams there has to be a few (smart) risks taken haha if he does return to premium then i wont have to sell him off.

rexinator · 02/02/2013 at 15:23

yeah fair call, I like your thinking, i just don't know if I am that confident in him achieving consistent numbers.. he really did taper off last year especially. (hence the price)…..

but he is a quality player so his numbers may increase this year??????? it def is a gamble but a solid one at that.. best of luck

BMO · 02/02/2013 at 16:14

Am I the only bloke guying 6 Deep in the MIDS??? Midfield currently sits at Ablett, Pendles, Jobe, JP Kennedy, Dangerfield, Cotchin……..K.Stevens, Crouch (Viney, O'Meara).

Thoughts from the community???

    @PeterHiggo · 02/02/2013 at 16:16

    Agreed! At this stage I am going a 6-4 premium rookie middle also.

      BMO · 02/02/2013 at 22:12

      I'll shall join u at the top of the leader board then Higgo!!

    @MRB37 · 02/02/2013 at 17:28

    Nice. I've gone 5-5 myself, with Ablett, Swan, Pendlebury, Kennedy and Cotchin as my premiums and Stevens, Wines, Crouch, Viney and O'Meara as the rest. I'd be interested in seeing your team just to see what areas you skimped on to get the 6 premiums.

      BMO · 02/02/2013 at 22:20

      Back line is Goddard Gibbs then drops to Pederson then rookies. Forwards are cox t.walker rocky then cash cows and rookies. Rucks sandi Berger. All based on rookies all getting named round 1.

    Tiim · 02/02/2013 at 22:33

    3-5-1-2 for me get cash cows and rookies and trade them at their peak for premiums

    JP1 · 02/02/2013 at 22:57

    My tactic on each line is:

    Def: 4 Prem – 1 Mid – 3 Rook
    Mid: 5 Prem – 1 Mid – 4 Rook
    Ruc: 1 Prem – 1 Mid – 2 Rook
    Fwd/ 4 Prem – 1 Mid – 3 Rook

    Pretty well balanced I think…?

    Eastern Shanks FC · 03/02/2013 at 18:29

    Yep, great idea to grasp the opportunity given to us this year with the 10 mids. I'm going similar 6-4, but thats counting Fyfe and Mundy as premiums

jimbotraralgon · 02/02/2013 at 19:42

Been looking at my mids and thought up this little discussion piece……

what do you think?

I think the days of thinking just ‘Premium or Non-Premiums is no longer relevant.
When you look at a particular line there are certain roles you want in each position. You then go shopping for the best candidates for those roles.

so my midfield has a few roles to fill…

– 3 Guns (Locked) – free hit. Just find me the best 3 players for this year. (For me that is Gaz, DePendles and Swan)
– 1 Premium between $580 and $640 (ish) – This is a player that is just outside ‘the very best’ mids but will join the elite uber super premium list. (My selection is Cotchin – Murphy could be an option here)
– 1 High end ‘Break out player’ – someone between $500k and $600k that will finish in the top 8 players. (Mine – L Shuey)
– 1 High end ‘rookie or relocator’ – Someone between $150k – $210k. This is my high end cash cow selection. Ideally he will be the last upgraded cow and will be use as bench cover for F8 (K Stevens)
– 4 ‘rookie guns’ – Who are the best under $130k players out there. Get me the best 4.

If all goes to plan.

Do you guys think the same way when structuring your lines?

    Spifflicator · 05/02/2013 at 10:11

    Crouch, Omeara, Viney, Lonergan other possibles Jsimpson DPP or Colquhoun DPP but these guys may not get much game time early, also M Jones worth a look depending on NAB cup.

jimbotraralgon · 02/02/2013 at 19:51

          Id go bock personally

any opinions on this one
bit weak in the backline maybe ill start again

ablett, swan, cotchin, dangerfield, gaff, luke parker, molony, o’meara, viney, crouch

ryder, leuenburger, nathan vardy, ??? undecided on rookie ruckman

franklin, fasolo, sippos, bock, nickoski, varcoe, j stringer ?? undecided on last rookie forward


jimbotraralgon · 03/02/2013 at 16:28

hey dan.

vardy on the bench is a waste of cash mate. Currie would be my selection.


myteam · 03/02/2013 at 16:31

hi jock
backs: shaw waters riley goddard heppel atley emg: (Pittard, docherty)
mids:pendelbury cotchin mundy o'rouke toumpus wines o'mera viney
emg: (B goodes, crouch)
ruck: cox leunenberg (vardy, grundy)
frwd: franklin walker zorko varcoe, lecras, daniher emg : mayes and lee

    jimbotraralgon · 04/02/2013 at 14:03

    hmmm, this will be a big question all year.

    personally I am not going with any midpricers in the mids (pure ruck and rookie strategy).

    however out of the two I think Ball is the better player in the better side (and most likely to get first hands on the ball)

    but Moloney is a great selection as well, better than embley.


JJJ · 03/02/2013 at 17:41

Please help, BALL or MOLONEY!?

Benno · 03/02/2013 at 17:56

Alrighty, this is my first official supercoach side for the season comments would be great.

Backs: Goddard, Gibbs, Birchall, Broughton, Docherty, Terlich
(Van Unen, Colquhoun)

Mids: Ablett, Swan, Pendlebury, Cotchin, Fyfe, O'Meara, Crouch, Viney
(Jones, Hrovat)

Rucks: Golstien, Leuenberger
(Currie, Osborn)

Forwards: Franklin, Cox, Roughead, Rockliff, Macaffer, Staker
(Lee, Kerridge)

Watto · 03/02/2013 at 19:48

Whats everyones thoughts on Monfries?
New club and from what ive heard will b spending a bit of time in the centre,

    jimbotraralgon · 04/02/2013 at 13:11

    hey watto.

    small chance for a break out but more than likely just a solid 80 point player.

    not good enough to be a keeper and unlikely to be a great cash cow compared to others.

    May do OK but there are just too many better options out there.

    Only consider if he absolutely tears it apart in the NAB…(and even then not convinced)


Les · 03/02/2013 at 23:06

Any advice for my team? So far this is how it stands obviously more changes to come
Goddard, Birchall, Grima, Atley, BOck, Pederson (Vlaustin and Goodes)

Swan, Murphy, Hayes, Rockliff, Boak, Ball, Embley, J lonergan (K Mitchell and J viney)

Hmac, Berger (Grundy and Rowe)

Pavlich, Broughton, LeCras, Gray, Varcoe, Daniher (Staker, Macaffer)

    Jess · 04/02/2013 at 01:12

    Grund for curry midfield looks poor wheres crouch ablett

    jimbotraralgon · 04/02/2013 at 13:05

    hi les.

    very high risk strategy to have boak, ball and embley in the mid.

    and lecras, varcoe, Maccaffer and gray in the forward.

    chuck in berger and bock and you are relying on 9 players not having any injury set back. If it all works then great but if it goes wrong you are pretty much shot for the year.

    Don't know if Hayes will be in the top 8 mids by years end so it only gives you 2 keepers in the mids. In fact I can only see 8 keepers by year end. You may want to try and get that up to around 10 – 12.


      Les · 05/02/2013 at 15:17

      Changed my team
      Goddard, Birchall, Grima, Atley, BOck, Goodes (Staker and Colquhoun)

      Swan, Kennedy, K.Jack, Rockliff, Fyfe, Embley, Kerridge, O'Meara (Crouch and J viney)

      Hmac, Berger (Grundy and Rowe)

      Franklin, Pavlich, Roughead, Gray, Varcoe, Daniher (T.Lee, Macaffer)

      That shows a more dominant team especially considering swannies have gws and gold coast in first three games.
      Not sure whether to have robbie gray or Mark LeCras

        jimbotraralgon · 05/02/2013 at 18:01

        Hey Les.

        Gray is looking more and more shakey for the round 1 start. LeCras definitely of the two.

        This is just a personal thing, would move kerridge in to lee's post up forward and then slot in K Mitchell.

        If the money is there, ball is probably a better option than Embley IMO.


          Les · 05/02/2013 at 19:58

          Thanks jim have made a few changes have plenty of change to upgrade ebmley to ball. And i was looking for a spot to insert mitchell and that sounds good.

Tim · 03/02/2013 at 23:58

Which combo community

1. Fyfe & Mundy

2. Swan & Moloney

    jimbotraralgon · 04/02/2013 at 12:58

    hey tim.

    Swann will be one of the top 3 by years end. It will be harder to get him as the year rolls on. bag that 130 points per game now.

    not a bad first pass. probably too many rookies up forward. you may struggle to get them all playing round 1

Hey community most likely final team before Nab cup

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffman, Broughton, staker, terlich,(Thurlow, Colquhoun)

MID: Ablett, Pendles, Swan, Cotchin, moloney, Stevens, Crouch, Viney,(O’meara, Mitchell)

RUCK: Goldstein, Berger,(Currie, Osbourn)

FWD: Cox, Roughead, Rockliff, Martin, Varcoe, Mayes,(Kerridge, Lee)

7,000 in the bank

And any advice would be appreciated

    Bolts · 04/02/2013 at 22:25

    That’s probably one of the best teams I’ve seen so far Tim great stuff.
    My mids and back premiums are the same but I keep worrying about having both pendles and swan, they both played 18 games last year so that’s 8 games I’m missing 100+ scores which could be around 1000 total pts by year end.
    Anyway great looking team

jimbotraralgon · 04/02/2013 at 18:02

does anyone else think that with the best mid rookies so well defined and so few options up forward, that the year might come down to the defensive rookies?

Large variety available, all untried, all the same price.

Those coaches that nail them might go some way to a winning team.


CHRIS · 04/02/2013 at 20:01






    jimbotraralgon · 05/02/2013 at 17:54

    hey Chris.

    I'm liking the look of this side. A different approach to what I am doing but it seems to work.

    Only arguement is there maybe one too many rookies on the forward and defense lines for my liking.

    I would (IMO) move Goddard up back into Jaksch position. I would then make sure that I get Jaeger O'Meara in that midfield.

    I would finally move Varcoe up forward for Simpson and slot K Mitchell into the mids.

    K Mitchell, O'Meara, Viney and Crouch are all putting forward cases in being a MANDATORY picks in the mids this year.

    Hope it heaps.


Bolts · 04/02/2013 at 22:10

What does anyone think about having Ryder this year in fwd line, I’ve heard bellchambers might be number 1 ruck if so what could that do to Ryders scores, could he avg over 100+?

Les · 05/02/2013 at 15:21

Do you think Bock is worth the risk?

    Spifflicator · 06/02/2013 at 15:15

    No. He won’t play for at least the first two weeks.

    jimbotraralgon · 06/02/2013 at 17:34

    hey les.

    he looked very sore at training today. even if the injury is healed then surely his fitness must be miles behind.

    No for me

chandanrajdb · 05/02/2013 at 16:40

Hi Guys,

This will be my second season of SuperCoach….I need to get my team right this year to start. I am new to this community and would like to receive as much help as possible from this community to be able to at least compete in my office league….please have a look at my team below and any suggestions/comments from anybody would be highly appreciated….

B Goddard, B Gibbs, P Hanley, G Broughton, B Goodes, B Staker, (S Docherty, S Colquhoun)

G Ablett, D Swan, S Pendlebury, M Murphy, N Fyfe, B Moloney, K Stevens, J O'Meara, (B Crouch, J Viney)

N Naitanui, M Leuenberger, (D Currie, J Osborn)

D Cox, M LeCras, A Siposs, T Varcoe, S Byrnes, J Simpson, (S Kerridge, T Lee)

I have got $220,300 left in my bank……any suggestions / comments would be highly appreciated…….

Thank you,


jimbotraralgon · 05/02/2013 at 17:46

this is a good side first up Chand……

Backline is solid

Personally I am only going for 1 midprice but very solid selections.

Rucks arent bad but NicNat wont be playing for 6 weeks minimum. Suggest moving Coxs into the ruck.

up forward is a little light. I the space now left I would suggest Roughead. He has a duel position available and can swing with Cox!

One last suggestion is to upgrade LeCras or Siposs to a Zorko or Rockliff or even Walker if you like. just strengthen it up a bit.


    chandanrajdb · 05/02/2013 at 20:28

    thanks Jim for your comments…..much appreciated……

    chandanrajdb · 06/02/2013 at 09:16

    Moloney or Parker??? please help….

      jimbotraralgon · 06/02/2013 at 09:46

      Hey Chand.

      Moloney by just a little. Can expect a higher ceiling on Moloney.


        chandanrajdb · 06/02/2013 at 09:54

        Thanks Jim…

        Have made couple of changes based on your earlier comment yesterday….

        S Jacobs in place of Nic Naitnui

        J Roughhead in place of A Siposs

        Hope fully this works…….

        Thank you


Spifflicator · 06/02/2013 at 13:37

No for the big question.

What impact will the Essendon Scandal have on SC?

Will the Bombers play at all? Will they play but not for premiership points? Will it all be OK, but just a massive pre season distraction which derails their start to the season? Will it affect Monfries and his dream season start at Port?

I HAD Goddard and Bellchambers, I don’t now.

What does everyone else think about keeping Bombers players in their starting line up?

Tom · 06/02/2013 at 14:23

Hi all, 2013 team newly assembled, would appreciate any feedback;

jimbotraralgon · 06/02/2013 at 15:14

open question….for those who kept hold of Franklin, are you a little concerned about buddy pulling out of the all stars game.

Happy to be proven wrong but something funny has been around Franklin since the week before his injury last year.


Shimma · 06/02/2013 at 18:56

The Huge question: Hartlett, Hanley, Hurn or Heppel?

Jimmy · 06/02/2013 at 19:48

whose the best midfielder from 559,100 – 0. Need a lighter premium player. Thinking of fyfe, mundy, shuey, wells or rocky. Cant really decide. Very confused. Would some advice.

    Shimma · 06/02/2013 at 20:15

    Probably Shuey, but Fyfe and Mundy would be great picks too, so if you wanted to use the extra cash from Fyfe or Mundy to upgrade another player, I'd go one of them.

    jimbotraralgon · 07/02/2013 at 08:56

    Shuey for me.

    Scteam · 09/02/2013 at 18:14

    Pretty good start

    Would recommend Viney to start over crouch.
    And you definetly need luenenburger from Brisbane in the ruck his price will sky rocket.

    jimbotraralgon · 10/02/2013 at 20:27

    dont know if beam is the best of the collingwood options. surely pendles is better?

After many tweets and changes I think how does this one sound

DEF: Malcheski (syd) Fisher (st K) Grimes (rich) Otten (ade), Bock (GCS), T Williams ( WB) ………. Terlich (melb) colquhoun (PA)

MID: Ablett (gc), Bartell (gee), Zorko (bris), Robinson (car), Fyfe(fre), Sewell (Haw), Van Berlo (ade), lower (WB), ……. crouch (ade) , O'meara (gc)

RUCK: Giles (GWS), Leuenburger (bris) …………. corrigan (gc) Witts (coll)

FWD: Walker (ade). Walters (free), Lecrass (WCE), Monfries (PA), Siposs (ST K), Staker (bris) …….. Kerridge (ade), lee(st k)

a little worried re forwards but a tweak here and there b4 season starts and all should be cool,
any thoughts

    jimbotraralgon · 12/02/2013 at 20:12

    hey mate.

    Lots of POD's here. IMO you need at least 2 of goddard, waters, shaw, birchall or duffield up back.

    maybe one of swan, pendles, cotchin, JPK, Danger, Watson.

    and a franklin, roughy, pavlich or coxs?

    Like the variety but probably just missing a few of the top shelf guys.


    jimbotraralgon · 12/02/2013 at 20:13

    and dont forget staker just died as far as supercoach goes

John · 15/02/2013 at 17:38

Really confused as to what to do, so help would be really greatful!!!

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Broughton, Atley, Goodes, Van Unen (Docherty, Terlich)

MID: Ablett, Swan, Cotchin, Swallow, Fyfe, Moloney, O'Meara, Viney (Couch, Colquhoun)

RUC: Goldstein, Leuenberger (Currie, Rowe)

FWD: Cox, Pavlich, Rockliff, Vercoe, Byrnes, Macaffer (Kerridge, Lee)

What are your thoughts on the team as a whole? But more specifically, what are your thoughts on not having Franklin in for Rd 1. He's a slow starter and won't score high very quickly, so will wait for him to drop and then pick him up maybe around Rd 4-5? Don't know who to trade him for though….
Thanks 🙂

My partner and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I should check things out.
I like what I see so now i am following you.
Look forward to looking at your web page yet again. · 11/01/2014 at 04:23

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads
up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let
you know. The style and design look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks · 26/01/2014 at 11:07

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either

authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?

I’d definitely appreciate it.
