It's up. It's on. Fire up! HUGE!

PINQ! Makeup & Beauty

i have had moloney locked since pre season !!

Josh

What are we expecting Moloney to average? It's a tricky pick because if he sits averages around 85, then I'd much rather spend the extra 70k on Hanneberry who I think will go 95-100

PINQ! Makeup & Beauty

with my structure i cant afford a 6th upper mid priced player like hanneberry, gaff mundy etc. i have a feeling moloney will average between 90-95

Nanna

would appreciate any views? gong with a couple of pod's in the def and fwds…

DEF: duffield, houli, hibberd, t.armstrong (syd), b.goodes, docherty (terlich, colquhoun)
MID: ablett, watson, cotchin, pendlebury, s.mitchell, zorko, wines, o'meara (k.mitchell, crouch)
RUC: jacobs, longer (currie, witts)
FWD: rockliff, j.lewis, bolton, j.kennedy (wce), j.sellar, karnezis (macaffer, lee)

grateful for any help/views!

Peter

Very weak

Popey99

Mate, if you think it's weak, then bloody well give him some help! We're one big happy family here at Jock Reynolds, so at least give him some suggestions to help him improve…

Fitzy

If you have some spare cash buddy I'd go for the Frenchman Lecras or Varcoe instead of Sellar. Maybe Shannon Byrnes from ( Melb) is another. But at the end of the day we could all be misguided. SC is a funny game and players do pop up from time to time and surprise us. Mate go with your gut feeling. I like some of your other selections like Karnezis and Duffield. Bolton worries me because of his age and durability?

tension

I'm a Dees fan mate but even I couldn't recommended Sellar – dubious. Not many cheap options up forward I know – Varcoe?

Mac

Sorry mate but I think you may need to rethink some of your choices. Don't have a POD, just for the sake of having a POD.

nanna

thanks. i just think some of the high-flying, likely to be picked by everyone-type players will all do well in round one. admit that sellars is a stretch, likely to use some spare cash to upgrade to someone like pavlich, but wanting to keep an open mind and look to have some guys who will go upwards in price

nicko

will 'not' do well even…

AFL Guru

Sellar is a bad pick mate

SCaddict

Hi Nanna. As a Swannies supporter I just love Jude Bolton but reckon his best footy is behind him and can see him playing much more game time up forward to allow the Hanneberys and the Parkers to take over his role in the midfield. He could also get managed missing games and receive some vest time to get him through the season.

So reckon you should consider Stevie J, Dusty or Robbo instead, or if you can afford it, Zorko the Magnificent.

Dom

This is my team:

DEFENDERS: B.Goddard, B.Gibbs, P.Duffield, D.Heppell, B.Goodes, N.Vlastuin (L.Stevenson/D.Terlich(E))

MIDFIELD: G.Ablett (C), S.Pendlebury(VC), P.Dangerfield, S.Sidebottom, N.Fyfe, K.Stevens, O.Wines, J.O'Meara (K.Mitchell(E)/B.Crouch)

RUCK: S.Jacobs , D.Currie (J.Witts(E)/M.Daw)

FORWARD: L.Franklin, J.Roughead, D.Zorko, L.Jetta (Syd), P.Karnezi, B.Macaffer (S.Rowe(E)/S.Kerridge)

Baba

Strong

Chris-O

Mate, Nice team.. However I'd slot Rowe into the R3 position to be able to swing Roughead forward if needed.
Good Luck!

PortJared04

Lovin the podcast so far Jock, absolute champions, agree on Goddard being tagged out at times, he is not in my backline.
Anyway, thoughts on my midfield? Gone with one or two PODs

Ablett, Pendles, Dangerfield, Shuey, J.Steven, Moloney, K.Stevens, O'Meara (Crouch, Mitchell)

Popey99

Stevens is interesting. I hadn't considered him at all… Interested to see your reasoning behind the selection?

PortJared04

This will be his 4th year in the system, change of clubs and great Job Security, will play in the guts! Hoping for him to get 70odds then upgrade him pretty early on in the peice. + I just think he will handle a tough AFL season better than Wines (coming from a Port supporter)

Henry

Not sure what this fascination is with Koby Stevens. Don't know what happened last weekend, but Wines had more than twice the game time that Stevens had (Stevens played only the second week) and pulled significantly bigger numbers than Stevens. People say Wines' price is too high for a rookie, but Stevens is slightly dearer and has no better standing than a rookie, apart from the 4 years experience. Basically, Stevens is tried but unproven, is injured and a real risk. His NAB game time shows he is not even a lock in the WB side.

Henry

Woops. I meant Wines had more than twice the game time that Stevens had in the first 3 NAB rounds.

.....

any advice on my team
DEF) Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Vlastuin, Goodes, Stevenson (Terlich, Colqhoun)
MID) Ablett, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Shuey, Fyfe, Rich, Crouch, O'meara (Mitchel, Viney)
RUC) Jacobs, Currie (Rowe, Whitts)
FOR) Cox, Zorko, Rockcliff, Lecras, Kennedy, Varcoe (Macaffer, Neade)

dools

……IMO Loose Goddard, Hepplell shake Colqhoun to the mids as he is not required there and will give swing to back line Going in with Currie as R2 is a mine field. Would you do it?
STRONGLEY suggest Duffield or Hurn or Hanley do the same job as BG or Heppell for 45K less
Individuality and free thinking is rewarded in SC not "Everyone else is doin' it"
Hope the community are hearnin' what I'm puttin' down Not just you mate Nuff said?

Peter

Very weak team other than your midfield mate!

(Viney, Omeara)

RUCK: Jacobs, Currie (Witts, Rowe)

FORW: Cox, Rockliff, Roughead, Lecras, Varcoe, Macaffer (Dwyer, Neade)

Tom

Probably don't need Cox AND Roughead in the FWD… i would swap Roughy for someone else

dools

See comment above re Ruc2
Howeva. Nothing wrong with both Roughstuff and Cox in Fwd line..

Tom

Why does everyone think that Ryder > Cox??
Help anyone?

SCaddict

I don't think most coaches do. I would expect Cox to be in heaps of teams especially with Nic Nat not starting the season.

I really doubt Ryder will be in that many teams at all. Although he will score very well this season he's proven to perform quite unreliably in the past and the burn risk is too substantial for many coaches to bear I reckon.

I would actually expect more coaches to pick Roughy ahead of Ryder but Cox should remain the most popular premium ruck DPP I would think.

Tom

Who would you suggest i have as my F1 then?
Cox
Ryder
Roughy is in the RUC, is that good?

SCaddict

Out of those choices I like Cox the most. Hasn't done anything in the pre-season to give me any indication he's slowing down and with Nic Nat likely out for the first few games he should get his season off to a flyer.

Roughy is an attractive selection too and looks set for a huge year. My only concern is that I'm just not sure how Clarko is going to utilise him this season and how that may affect his fantasy scoring. So I'm going to wait and see there and maybe bring him in later in the season.

I've finally (or so I believe) locked away my rucks and going with Jacobs as my R1 and Cox as my F1 fwiw.

AFL Guru

Take Cox then do a swap for Nic Nat later in the season, Cox will get some huge points with Nic Nat out but i feel the last half of the season Nic will outscore Cox

Tom

Mr AFL Guru sir, what's your view on having Jacobs and Roughy in the RUC positions? Too heavy?

dools

Tom, SC Points are SC points how the hell can you be to heavy unless you've had a Hungry Jack Buger with the lot a Sundae and a Fizzy with Rings and Superfries on the side right after youve just eatn KFC…
Placement of players(Menu) is up to you

Mac

They don't…..Cox will average 120 until Naitanui returns to his previous form, and then will still average more than Ryder.

Tom

Yeah, i think that I should have Cox as my F1, just seems like the safer option than Ryder. But with Nic Nat coming back, how much do you think it'll affect Cox's scores? Because I remember that I had Nic Nat last year and he was beasting it with 120+ most games! So in the LONG run, is cox really that safe?

Also, should i have Roughy & Jacobs in the ruck? I feel it's a bit heavy….

Marc

I’ve got Cox as F1. Don’t trust Ryder yet.

I’ve got Maric and Jacobs in the rucks. After Luey bit the dust I didn’t trust any mid pricers around. Felt it was easier to go the set and forget route. You got guys like Cox/Maric/Roughie/Jacobs as your rucks, costs more initially yes, but it completely removes an area on the field you have to upgrade. For me, I’d rather downgrade Maloney to Koby Stevens so I could upgrade Jenkins to Maric.

Marc

Whoops, messed up posting. See what 14 hour shifts do to you. Posted my replies below

@PeterHiggo

A quote from The Hollies, "He ain't heavy, he's my brother." But when the brother just throws their team up without any acknowledgement of Jock's podcasting effort, his weight does seem to become somewhat of a burden.

nicko

its the pointy end of the pre-season… pre-lockout jitters…

dan

agree higgo

Mac

Agreed Higgo. May I ask when we'll be seeing your team?

snake handler

well said

tension

Stop being so negative community – it's not unlimited salary as you know….to Ben I would say well done for picking Hannebery, it could be a masterstroke. Problem will be of course if Dwyer or Neade don't play – you may have to strengthen fwds in order to use swingman, protect Currie.

Tom

COULD is the key word. The majority of people just want to take the safe option and pick players that everyone else is picking.

Jimmy

no comments on Daniel Hannebery?

SCaddict

One of my favourite players who should continue improving. He does a heck of a lot of 1%ers that his coach and supporters like me just adore.

Whilst his value and SC output will likely go northward I doubt it will shoot up to elite status so would would probably pick someone like Teen Wolf or Mundy for a bit extra cash who have a better chance I feel of becoming elite performers from a fantasy point of view.

Otherwise I reckon you would be better off downgrading Hanners to Moloney who I would expect similar output from but over $75K cheaper.

dools

Jimmy, Great player expect him to go Whooosh this season, KaaaCnig!!!

Tom

I actually have no life apart from Supercoach at the moment.. could probably recite the exact prices of nearly every player that's been in my team. This is fun 🙂

dools

Alright tom challange excepted..Begin

Marc

Tad out of breath I mean. This is what I get for posting on a silly iPhone instead of my computer.

dools

Pick of of the Pre-Season Hanneberry . Will Be Bigger then then Big Things

Tom

yeah mate keep on thinking that 🙂

Tom

The big question is, who do you have as your M4,5 & 6??

Marc

Current mid 4-5-6 is Bennell, Fyfe and Ollie Wines. Traded out Maloney as M6 because I wasn’t happy with any of the mid-priced rucks, so I used the spare cash to upgrade Jenkins to Jacobs.

Anthony

is havingzorko rockliff and karnezis to much in fwd line if u think u can upgrade karnezis before the byes is it worth taking all 3 2 are in the top 5 fwd this year and karnezis is the best mid pricer in the 250 range that sutis my structure thoughts i need help who should i switch if any???

Marc

I reckon it’ll be OK. I’ve got 3 GC Suns in my mids, as long as they all score and/or generate cash then it’s not a problem to me.

Anthony

let me guess ablett bennell omeara i suppose its ok, zorkos the one im considering swapping for either roughie or bartel but hes a bloody gun

Tom

NO Zorko is the one you should be locking

Phil

I agree Zorko a must.

SCaddict

Not too much in my view. All 3 have been locks in my team for a few weeks now. Also toyed with the idea of Cornelius too although went for other alternatives in the end that offered better value for less risk in my estimation.

Popey99

I currently have all 3, and quite comfortably too. They are all guns and should be locked into your forward line. Don't worry about where players are from, if they fir your structure and are the best possible players you can get, then jump on!

Slotters

I’ve got 4 Lions in my fwd line atm, not sure if ill stick with it but I don’t have any lions elsewhere. 2 big names in Zorko and Rocky and then 2 cheaper options in Karnezis and Bewick that ill think will score well and make a bit of cash to upgrade them later.

PortJared04

Bewick will be a future star!!

dools

Hey Anthony, When was it ever and I mean eva' said you cannot have too much of a Good Thing… GO for it mate ..they are all good

Tom

If Mitchell is named in R1, Mitchell

Is having JPK or Dangerfield as M3 better

Am i to light in rucks with currie as big risk need i more swing man i less mid premium thoughts?

Tom

Watts as my F4, good option?

Anthony

Tag in season burn man i reckon consider dusty and matty wright

Popey99

Like Watts actually… Strong consider for me. Am tempted in defence.

Mac

Same ruck combination as you, but do your mids and rucks compromise your forward line? I can't seem to find a way to have a decent forward line and not start a rookie fwd.

@MRB37

FWDS are Cox, Walker, Zorko, LaCras, Varcoe, McAffer with Neade and Kerridge as bench options. I'm running 3 rookies in my starting mids, so i've saved a bit of money there.

dan

great podcast decided to throw kennedy in to the midfield in place of scott selwood also had to swap out brad ebert to fit him in who noone has and i think he will consistently average around 100 so not happy but mundy is a resonable swap that leaves me with a bit of extra cash to uograde a mid priced ruckman later i think i need to be banned from supercoach untill the end of the round or i might be divorced

whats ur fwd line tom.

sorry for typing in my team as a reply. just realised

Tom

My FWD line is

Cox, Zorko, Rockliff, ____ , Lecras, Varcoe

don't know who to get with 480k left

PortJared04

Matty Wright or Jack Watts look the goods for that price

Phil

I'd back Dusty in at 473k

dools

I played a game once called Russian Rouellette as I said I only played once. My God did I feel alive when I was playing however I was also #hiitting my pants Dusty NO

SCaddict

I managed to find a way to fit JPK in although I did shed a tear or two at dispensing with one of my prized midfield rookies. Such a durable and consistently elite performer who is probably still improving.

I just couldn't leave him out in the final analysis especially with the Swans start to the season. So going with Gaz, Pendles, JPK and Danger in my middle along with Moloney, Lucas and 4 rooks.

Popey99

Sad to hear you've been crying mate, but trust me, JPK is sooooo worth it. Absolute premium output for whole year last year has got him into my team. Nice POD too, surprisingly.

Ghost of Captain Blood

Agree with Pops, JPK is a lock for mine. But happy he is beng overlooked by so many coaches:)

Great podcast guys, you have been such a help this preseason. I have taken a similar strategy to crouching… Plenty of rookies seems like the way to go.

Def. Gibb, Hanley, Heppell, vlastuin, Goodes, Stevenson(terlich, Pittard)
Mid. JPK, Dangermouse, Bennell, Teen Wolf, Moloney, Stevens(if ribs are ok) Wines, (Viney, Crouch)
Ruck. Jacobs, Roughie, (Currie,Rowe)
Forwards. Cox, Zorko, Rockliff, Blair, Sippos, Karnezis(Neade,
Cash.285000
Plenty of risk with number of rookies and POD’s, but I believe EVERY player has a great chance to make money, allowing me to pick up some of the more fancied premiums later in the year. Also with the cash available I can watch what happens over the first couple of weeks and jump on any standout performers.
Your thoughts?

Jon

SC, I have also pick up JPK and dropped Watson.
I am so interested in seeing your team. And I wonder whether you have considered putting Blicavs in ur Midfield. He had a blinder of a game at the practice match yesterday up against Mummy.

SCaddict

Hi Jon. I'm still tinkering around the edges especially with the midfield rookies. Yes Blicavs is very much under consideration for selection in my team along with Hill from the Hawks. If Koby Stevens isn't able to front up for Rd 1 with the ribs injury he sustained on the weekend then one of these guys will likely take his spot.

At this stage the only division I've fully locked away is my forward line as follows:

Cox, Zorko, Rocky, LeCras, JJK, Karny (Macaffer, Neade)

I may change my F8 at the last minutes if another forward rookie is named and Neade isn't. But that should be the only potential change.

By the way Blicavs' blinder was against the Jolly Giant not that it makes much difference as he's had a superb preseason either way and taken the opportunity presented with both hands.

Spifflicator

I have THE exact same midfield, and a very similar structure. Main difference is I have Pavlich not Zorko and Reilly instead of Newman.

It is a high risk strategy, but I am holding tough on it.

Hey Guys,
Been wrcking my brain for weeks on end but i think I have solved my team barring any major changes this week. Would love some thoughts especially in the rucks, I just cant convince myself to go heavy. will prob swap coz for rowe an downgrade to a fwd rookie come round 6-8

Popey99

Really, really high quality team. Be prepared with Currie, 50-50 call to start him. Apart from that, only thing I am sceptical about there is Deledio. Would prefer Dangermouse or Cotch. Love Kennedy pick.

@MarkVassett

Which option do you think is the best?
1. C.Newman, J.Watts
2. H.Shaw, P.Karnezis
3. H.Shaw, T.Varcoe
4. G.Birchall, P.Karnezis
5. G.Birchall, T.Varcoe

Popey99

Gut instinct… 1 or 4. Maybe 4, just…

Fabian

I'd say 4. Surprised not to see Birch in the team reveals.

Josh

hey guys, what are your thoughts on zac smith?

Popey99

No for me… Should push 85 average but no enough to justify selection in my team…

jimbotraralgon

not much but he is my back up option to berger if he doesnt play round 1.

otherwise I would have to restructure the side too much.

might get to 90 if lucky, more like 80. Probably the second best ruck option under $400k.

cheers

Popey99

Jock, I salute you. Biggest week of the year in fantasy footy and you pull out the best of the best as far as podcasts go.

I must say, I sat there, listening. Podcast in one tab, playing away, and my Supercoach team in the other. Made over 20 changes throughout the podcast. Ended up with only 2 players different than the start of it!

I got JPK in for the Dangermouse after your words of wisdom there, and to be honest it was a move I had wanted to make for days, but could't bring myself to dump the Danger until the father of fantasy football himself said so.

Another thing I am tossing around with is the rucks, and am currently entertaining the idea of Roughy, Jacobs, (Currie, Moller). This combines your strategy and Crouching's, which I believe will turn out to be an ultimate Ruck combination. If Currie gets games and plays well, I will simply move the big Rough into the Fwds for Sammy Rowe.

My mids are relatively settled. Currently have the top dog GAJ, with the Supercoach prince Pendles. JPK rounds out my 3 ultra premos there, as mentioned earlier. Then have a few picks that will make or break me. Shuey and Fyfe are a couple of blokes who I believe will end up being top 10 mids by years end. Big call, I know… Quadzilla's impeccable pre-season has found him plonked there. Kan-ye is there, with guns Crouch and O'Meara. Have a smoky to finish off here. Blicavs. Will play. Will score. Better option than Viney in my humble opinion.

Currently have 3 defence rookies on field, as they are all solid bodied, hard nosed, mature/ahead of their years (Vlastuin) and will play a lot of games. Stevenson is my man. Will absolutely smash it off half back for Port. Love this kid.

Finally, (sorry for the rabble everyone! Needed to get all of this built up anxiety and happiness for lockout out in the air) I must commend you for being the main driving force behind me for the past month to reach fantasy stardom in 2013. I love you, Jock, and Higgo and Crouching, without a doubt.

My team as it stands. Good luck for the year everyone. I'll get around and have a look at everyone else's teams now. Thanks again.

a few queries:

2) Should I do what Jock has put and have 2 premiums in the RUC?
3) Mid too heavy?
4) ANY changes you would make to make it better long term?
Thanks 🙂

Popey99

No worries mate.

1) F4… Dusty Martin or Watts for me, depending on cash. Also strong consider Matt Wright. Otherwise Karnezis or JJ Kennedy are good mid pricers.
2) YES!!! Just do it and don't worry about it.
3) Yes… But I like the blokes you've picked. Very solid. The rest of your team is solid enough to keep that. If you were to downgrade one it would have to be Mundy to Wines and then plonk the big Roughy at F4 and be ready for a swap with Rowe.
4) Overall, I don't rate Varcoe as a fantasy player, and would prefer kennedy or Karnezis, as mentioned before, who I reckon can both push a 90 average. Otherwise, SOLID! Like your team a lot. Defence is weak, but still, rookies are great. A 9/10 team.

PortJared04

Love your side Popey, champion team!
Thoughts on Moloney this year?

Popey99

Thanks mate. Yeah, if you have to pick a mid-pricer under 400k in the mids, it'll be Moloney. Should average 95 as a great stepping stone to a premium. With the 8 mids this year, you would be stupid to keep a mid pricer or lower end premo at the end of the year, unlike seasons past where it has been ok to have someone like Hayes or Barlow, to use some examples from last year.

Like it, very nice. Watts is a superb pick and I am currently considering him very closely. I now have Blicavs starting in my rucks, as he will definitely play early. Would definitely consider this. Midfield very similar to mine, so I like it. Overall, beaut team, very strong.

Popey99

Hmmm… Interesting strategy. You won't find massive points early, as your mids are a little weak, but this will improve throughout the year. Stevie J needs to be taken off the field, as he is suspended for Rnd 1. Would really like to see the big Cox in there somewhere. He is an irresistible selection with Naitanui out for the first 4 or so weeks. Apart from that, exceptional team.

DOS

considering swapping watts for heppell and goddard for shaw, and do you think fyfe and shuey or moloney and swan?

Popey99

Leave Watts and Goddard! GUNS. Fyfe and Shuey for me. I'll say 118 average for Shuey and 114 average for Fyfe, compared to 126 for Swan and 91 for Moloney. That's 232 vs 217.

DOS

ok cheersone more, what about scott selwood instead of fyfe?

Popey99

Hmm… Less risk. Go Scooter! Good POD.

Heytman

What do you think about:
1) trading Stevie J down to LeCras/Martin
2) Grimes to Telrich
3) Using cash to get double prem in ruck
4) Kane Lucas instead of Whitfield – was impressive in nab

dools

Heartfelt Respect Brother…I read your Blurb and I too have many many players in Inc Blicavs well I just wanted to say Blicavs… but also My team is very very simular So we can't both be wrong But surley the SC Gods can't make us right? Surley

Popey99

Surely

haines_yellow32

Popey, which Martin is in your forward line, Dustin? Stephan? Thanks mate

Popey99

Dusty mate, but he is no longer there. Have changed my team significantly since then… NAB form wasn't promising enough for me.

PJ04

Your midfield there^^ is very very similair to mine Popey.

I have
Ablett, Pendles, Kennedy, Shuey, Fyfe, Moloney, wines, O'Meara

Jake

I know i have pestered, but Lukey Parker, will he be able to hit possible premium status?

Popey99

Hmmm… No for me, but should average 90, a good stepping stone to a premium. By rights, he should top out at 480k and you may be able to pick up a fallen premo there for 550k, a 70k swap. Maybe… but no.

jimbotraralgon

definitely possibly maybe.

Has alot of the indicators that suggest a break out year. Just depends on whether he steps through that door. Not everyone does.

He will increase in price without doubt but whether he can go 110+, maybe not.

As Popeye said, should be a good stepping stone for premium.

cheers

Matt

Finally have my team together that I am reasonably happy with, but would love some feedback.

DEF: Gibbs, Duffield, Heppel, Vlaustin, Goodes, Terlich (Stevenson, Colquhoun)

MID: Ablett, Pendles, Shuey, Bennell, Fyfe, Stevens, Wines, O'Meara (Crouch, Viney)

RUCKS: Jacobs, Currie (Rowe, Witts)

FWD: Cox, Ryder, Zorko, Rockliff, Wright, Karnezis (Macaffer, Neade)

Any thoughts, ideas or feedback would be much appreciated.

Matt

162K in the bank, so I have money to burn if needed

Fabian

Nice team. Koby or Jack stevens? Hoping Koby's injury over the weekend isn't serious because I have him in my team as well.

Matt

Koby, so waiting til later in the week so see where that one stands. Hoping he comes through

Phil

I like it but be prepared if Currie doesn't play round 1. I've switched Rowe into forward line for first round just in case as long as Macaffer plays.

JP123

hey guys, can someone tell me why the video of crouching one's team is not working anymore. does anybody know what his team was?

Tim

I'm thinking of making a big move by choosing Nick Riewoldt instead of Buddy.

Riewoldt's early draw involves some good teams, supercoach-wise, whilst Buddy has a tough one. After about round 4/5, Riewoldt's and Buddy's prices should have risen and fallen, respectively, to the point where they are (almost) level. At that point, I'll make the trade.

Doing this allows me to start with Kane Lucas instead of another midfield rookie (I already have Jaeger, Crouch, Viney, and Wines).

Thoughts?

PortJared04

Can only have 3 of these 4

Ablett, Pendles, JPKennedy, Danger.

Go.

Deanbartel

Everyone else will call you a retard for not going in with Ablett, however after reading a report on the Suns, Ablett is destined for more outside midfield + forward time as opposed to contested ball. I went with the other 3 which allowed me $100 or so extra to invest into my 2nd ruck (upgraded Currie to Longer)

Mac

I believe that report says more about the other GC mids, rather than Gaz. They're not paying him that much money, to play him on the wing.

Kano

I got all 4

SCaddict

Yeah me too. It was hard enough eliminating Watson and Cotchin from the mix but I just can't go past the other 4 guys.

dan

me 2 mad if you dont add in deledio and mundy too

Phil

Has anyone made the Lewis Stevenson / Treasure Island connection yet I thought it was obvious but have no seen the reference yet.

Fabian

Hey guys,

Fantastic podcast as usual. What are people's thoughts on L. Parker this year. Safe from the vest? Having trouble deciding between him, mundy and a few of the eagles boys for my M5.

Would appreciate any feedback on my team.
Gone with picking the best 3 players and best mid price option in the DEF, MID & FWD.

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Birchall, Newman, Goodes, Telrich
(Stevenson, Pittard)

MID: Ablett, JP Kennedy, Cotchin, Fyfe, Mundy, O'Meara, Bilcavas, K Mitchell
(B Crouch, Viney)

RUCK: Mumford, Luey
(Currie, Witts)

FWD: Franklin, Cox, Zorko, Lecras, Karnezis, varcoe
(Rowe, Mcaffer)

$72, 300 Left over.

SCaddict

Lukey Parker SHOULD be free of the green vest this season although until I've seen it for a few games I can't be 100% assured.

Reckon Moloney has a similar ceiling to Parker with virtually no chance of the green vest and a little bit cheaper too so believe he's slightly the better SC pick between the two.

Ben

Thoughts on my team guys, love some useful criticism

Backs. Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, vlastuin, goodes, Terlich, Stevenson, colhquon
Mids. Ablett, swan, dangerfield, fyfe, mundy, lucas, wines, omeara, crouch, viney
Rucks. Ryder, longer, currie, rowe
Forwards. Cox, bartel, rockliff, Zorko, Kennedy, karnezis, macaffer, Dwyer.

Thoughts guys

Phil

Stay away from Brisbane ruck ATM they still haven't used their rookie upgrade and if they go for Michael that will be one more ruck in the equation.

Andy

Popey99

If it's Pearce Hanley then option 2. If Daniel Pearce, certainly option 1.

SCaddict

If you mean Pearce Hanley then I'd probably pick option 2 as I reckon that'll earn you a little bit more cash.

But if you mean Danyle Pearce then I would lean the other way as I just don't rate the guy and I'm really not sure how he'll perform in Rosco's system even though the Teen Wolf would be a nice individual selection.

Andrew

Any love for Travis Boak after a decent hit out against the Swans?

Could be a decent POD with Mundy, Fyfe and Rich in the same price bracket..

Deanbartel

Considered it

dools

Andrew LOVe The pick mate I think Boak Is the Pick of Season Why ?Turned down Geelong Strong in the Guts Gets his own Footy provides leadership to the team I firmly beleive in the Boak I just wish he came to Kardinia Pk…

Josh

Love the podcast fellas! Making the world a lighter place while messing with our heads!

I'm in a ruck dilemma, just like everyone else it seems. At the moment I'm biting the bullet and going Bellchambers and Jenkins with 80k left. Hoping that Belly can average 95+ and Jenkins around 85, anything more would be a bonus.

Would it be better to upgrade Bell to Kreuzer leaving 45k? Upgrade one of Robinson, Mundy or Newman? Or stash the cash?

Thoughts appreciated. Cheers!

Popey99

Bell to Kreuzer a no-go. If Stevie J wasn't out for rd1, I would say take Robbo up to him… If you haven't got HepD I would take him for Newman…

Josh

Thanks for the feedback. I've got Heppell and pretty set with my backs. It's still pretty tempting to take Stevie J, with Karnezis as my F6, I can bring McAffer on for one round…. hmmmm

Marc

I reckon it's xtremely unlikely to see Jenkins average 85 for the year. 70-75 is a more realistic target for him this year I think.

Jon

Oops my bad SC. Don’t know why I had mummy in head, maybe the Ruck position is getting to me. Only if Blicavs was in Ruck which he suppose to be, then wouldn’t have this delima.

My Ruck so far is Jacob, Currie (Rowe, Daw)

Fwd is Cox, Roughie, Zorks, The Rock, JJK, Kearny (Macaffer, Kennedy)

I know, I have the Fwd/Ruck swing. But not entirely happy with it. What do you think I should do?

Downgrade JJK for Varcoe. To get Jacobs, Giles combo or leave JJK and just get Jacobs, Jenkins combo, or just leave as it is. And save the 300K after Round 1.

Jon

You bloody beauty… my delima has just been answered. Blicavs is now a dual Mid/Fwd, on top of that Blicavs is certain Round 1 starter and may play up to Rounds 6.

Jon

Ooops! Got so exited… Mid/Ruck that is fellas.

mcareec

blicavs is in ruck

BPP

Hey everyone, Vlastuin or Pittard? My DEF is pretty stock standard, Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Vlastuin, Goodes (Stevenson, Terlich)

SCaddict

I'd choose Pittard without seeing the team selections next week. Reckon he's slipped nicely under the radar in the preseason although had a huge game on the weekend besting my Swannies.

Vlastuin has shown fantastic potential already but just not convinced yet that his job security is assured to the same degree as Pittard's.

I could be wrong though. So I'll be very interested to see where both players are named. If Vlastuin is started on the field rather than the bench then I'd feel a little more comfortable picking him.

mcareec

that is enough buddy

mcareec

vlastuin is a nobrainer

BPP

and heppell

Doddy

How many Port players is too many, i have 5 Pittard, Stevenson, Mitchell, Wines and Neade, i think they fit but any feedback would be great.

SCaddict

Hi Doddy. I currently have those same 5 in my team. A lot will come down to which players are named by Port next week but believe all those dudes will likely be picked, probably with the exception of Neade. However I think even he will be given a go sooner rather than later so don't think you have much to worry about.

As they are all cash cows it's unlikely many of these guys will still be in our team by round 11 so not really a concern bye wise either.

@MRB37

To begin the year with, as long as they are filling your primary function for picking them (either points or cash generation), then I don't see a problem with it. I think there will be quite a few with the same 5 guys in their teams (myself included). Port have usually been one of the worst SC scoring teams overall the past couple of years, but I reckon they'll be much improved under Hinkley, so I wouldn't be too concerned.

Doddy

I hear ya my main concern is that 2 of of them are in the middle with no ability to be swung in the backline or the forwardline there is the real posibility that both of them may no be picked leaving me short in the middle..

D MAN

Just a quick one guys.
Viney and $50k Thumbs up
Vlastuin and DEF/MID swing

JJFYZZ

I’ve got a thought that’s come from left field.

With NicNat out and Cox taking most of the Ruck burden what are your thoughts on Scott Lycett ($206K) becoming the number 2 ruck.

I’m thinking of putting him for the first 3 weeks and then potentially burn him when NicNat comes back.

As a Fwd only it gives me another couple of weeks before we see which Fwd rookies will stand up too.

What do you think?

SCaddict

It's a thought all right. Main worry is him being stranded on 1 or 2 games and stuck on the bubble for many weeks to come if Nic Nat comes back by Rd 2 or 3.

So you're probably better served going with a rookie instead and using the $100K elsewhere as there are much more appealing cash cows out there. It's an interesting idea though.

James

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppel, Duffield, Goodes, Stevenson (Docherty, Terlich)

MID: Ablett, Boyd, Pendlebury, Murphy, Fyfe, Parker, Mitchel, Omeara (Crouch, Viney)

RUC: Ryder, Luenberger (Currie, Moller)

FWD: Chapman, Rockliff, Martin, Breust, Karnezis, Macaffer (Rowe, Lamb)

I'm happy with the DEF. not so sure on parker and and may have one to many ultra-premiums in the MID. not sure on Chapman either, could put Zorko in but would mean 3 lions in the FWD line. possibly trade chapman after round one for stevie j? if currie gets selected r1 luenberger will go and that will give me extra cash.

thoughts and analysis would be good.

Liddlejnr

Can I just say, not really in relation to anything, just how impressed I am with young Ollie wines! I usually avoid the inflated draftees but this kid looks like something ‘special’, as Bruce would put it! And he is forcing me to put him in my staring 22. The kid has not put a foot wrong all pre-season, his ability to win contested footy is nothing short of what a 3-4 year player is capable of, do I sniff a bargain? Port has added depth to its engine room this summer which can only benifit the young bull, helping him achieve a 85-90 ave in year 1. I know it’s only nab cup but it’s all we have to base our assumptions on and wines is a lock for me. Joel selwood is one of, if not the best first year afl player I have seen play footy, and we all know how good he is now, my point. Both lucky 7 in the draft, both tough as nails both win their own footy and at the end of the season both will have won the rising star award! I look forward to seeing him in the real stuff, and the start of 2013! Just had to spit that out. Cheers community

SCaddict

He's a ripper all right.

@MRB37

So with Blicavs now named as Ruck eligible in Supercoach, do you think many people will now switch back to a rookie R2 option? Seems like you'd have a good chance to have 1 of Currie and Blicavs named to begin with.

JJFYZZ

Thanks for the info!! Bloody hell this is another spanner in the works!

I thought they may have changed Lycett from WCE too.

BMO

Just noticed he is changed to Rucks also. Think it will solve some of the issues we all face in that department

Deanbartel

You'd be mad to pick Currie over Blicavs given Blicavs will be rucking solo pretty much

SCaddict

Yes this is a game changer. Just when I thought my ruck department was settled…

Wow, where where you on draft nite MRB37?

Matty

as it stands my backs are

Goddard, Grimes, Waters, Armstrong, Vlastuin, Goodes (Terlich, Stevenson)

thinking of maybe swapping grimes waters & Armstrong for gibbs, heppell/Duffield & malceski

what is anyones thought to that

@MRB37

Tony Armstrong? Not sold on him being a best 22 every week and he seems like the type that has the potential to cop a vest when he's playing.

harryy

Jock what do you think of my rucks this year?

S.Jacobs, N.Vardy (D.Currie, M.Blicavs)

Lochie

Do you have Rowe in your forward line? If so that's looking pretty good. Haven't heard much on the form of Vardy that's all.

harryy

yeh rowes in my forward line which makes me think i dont need vardy and just have jacobs, blicavs, currie and rowe? Is there any need for Vardy?

SCaddict

I wouldn't spend the money on him. He's had a poor track record with injuries and hasn't played any NAB Cup.

So have Blicavs as your R2 instead, swap Rowe into your ruck bench and make sure you have a swingman like Cox or Roughy in your forward line and spend the extra $125K elsewhere.

Jonah

Someone please help! Im in a dilemma! i need to find a 320k forward! I've got Karnesis and Macaffer already and need some else! any options! Pleaaasseee Help!

Could be a nice POD for you. 5th year, only 22, could be a nice breakout contender.

Jarod

Yeah I am over Fyfe. Not coming back from injury, played a great season last year and he has been tearing it up on the track (We all know that).

SCaddict

Absolutely. I just can't fit him into my midfield structure but he should have a very good year indeed.

team changa

lake and rocky or zorko and moloney ??

replyer

tough one but id just go for Zorko and Moloney! Moloney should perform well at Brisbane this year!

Doddy

No brainer Zorko and Moloney for sure

team changa

lake is an absolute steal in the backline at 430k averagine 105-110 in 2010 in his standout year at the doggies, only considering him now with suckiling going down for the year, his interception marks score big points and im sure he will have the kick in duty.. if i could fit zorko instead of rocky i would but i cant.. im sure moloney will do well but he has been known to have flashes and fade outs see him one qtr not the next. lake also has option to go forward.. tuff one. feel this is a make or break choice..

dannyboy

i can only pick one out of Viney, Crouch and Biclavs who should i pick???

dannyboy

huh, just realised blicavs is a ruck now!!! well i guess its who out of crouch and viney

TRUSTMEBRO

crouch! DEFINATLY!

Doddy

Viney for me but it's really up to personel preference..
Good Luck

Shimma

I reall want to use the VC loophole (have a non scoring rookie on bench), but I also want Currie and Blicavs on my ruck bench. Is having McBean (non scorer) and Dwyer on the bench with Macaffer on the field too risky for my FWDs? Should I trade Sam Jacobs for Roughead to get a swing set going to lessen the risk?

Tom

Good on ya Jock on the Supercoach show!

Ben

Quick question, will Sam Mayes play round 1?
