Supercoach Team Reveal : Teflon’s Pimps
This season I went in with a real “Guns & Rookies” mindset. However a few midpriced players found their way into Teflon’s Pimps.
After closely following the Mick The Mad Irishman’s team selection strategies I have great confidence in my guns and rookies.
As you can see, I’ve only gone with one mid-priced player in my backline and it’s Ben Jacobs from North Melbourne. The mail we’ve been getting from the community is that Port were desperate to hang onto Jacobs but his future is now at Arden St. Solid in NAB Cup and I’m hoping for him to be a POD for my side. I’ve got good faith in my four rookies in Terlich, Stevenson, Goodes and Vlastuin. In particular I like young Stevenson from Port – starved of opportunities at WCE but WILL play for Port. My premiums – Goddard, Gibbs and Heppell – are in most of your teams.
It’s make or break time for Teflon’s Pimps in the middle of the park. I’ve gone with 5 genuine premiums in the middle. Out of those five premiums, the one player I am pinging my hopes on most is Patty Dangerfield. Mark my words ladies and gentleman, the Danger is set for a big year. In terms of my rookies, I made the tough call in choosing Mitchell over Wines. Koby Stevens is a player I told youse all about a long time ago and who can resist O’Meara, Crouch and Viney?
I’ll tell youse all what, I spent weeks and weeks tossing and turning in my sleep when it came to choosing my rucks. In the end I’ve gone with the Rough Head, Currie, Rowe and Witts. Majak was strongly considered but ultimately left out. Witts and Rowe both got the nod over him because pre-season games suggest that they’ll get more game time than Majak Daw. Currie is a STAR and will play. Roughie’s versatility won me over and with the ability to play virtually anywhere on the park I’m looking forward to plenty of big scores from him.
I also had major dilemmas when it came to picking my forwards. I’ve ended up slightly moving away from the guns & rookies strategy and throwing in a few mid-pricers namely Shannon Byrnes, Travis Varcoe and Mark Lecras. This is because I don’t believe there are enough premium forwards on offer this year which is also why I’ve slotted big Coxy in there as a DPP. Shannon Byrnes just got the nod over Patty Karnezis in the end. The two Brissie boys in Rockliff and Zorko are set for huge years (watch the Lions fly up the ladder, by the way). Macaffer an absolute LOCK at $128,000 and I’ve got good faith in little Jake Neade.
Bear in mind this might change before Round 1 but it’s locked in at the moment. So then, what do youse all think of Teflon’s Pimps? Let us know what you think and I’m more than happy to counter your arguments!
