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

  2. PINQ! Makeup & Beauty says:

    i have had moloney locked since pre season !!

    • Josh says:

      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 says:

        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

  3. Nanna says:

    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 says:

      Very weak

      • Popey99 says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

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

    • Mac says:

      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 says:

        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

    • SCaddict says:

      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.

  4. Dom says:

    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)

  5. PortJared04 says:

    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 says:

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

      • PortJared04 says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

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

  6. ..... says:

    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 says:

      ……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?

  7. Peter says:

    Very weak team other than your midfield mate!

    • Peter says:

      That last msg was for ‘nanna’ (finger slipped)
      Here’s my team, please pick at it if you think I can make changers, thanks

      Backs: Goddard, Gibbs, duffield, Hanley, goodes, pittard (terlich, Stevenson)
      Mids: Watson, Dangerfield, Mitchell, shuye, fyfe, Lucas, Mitchell, omeara (vines, crouch)
      Rucks: maric, smith (rowe, Currie)
      Forwards: roughead, zorko, Robinson, watts, zarnezis, macaffer (Neade, lee)

      • dan says:

        cracker mate apart from ablett missing prety strong on all lines good few Good POD's there

  8. Ben says:

    Could you please give me some tips

    DEF; Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell, Vlastuin, Goodes (Stevenson, Terlich)

    MID: Ablett, Pendulbury, Cotchin, Dangerfield, Hannebery, Moloney, Mitchell, Crouch,
    (Viney, Omeara)

    RUCK: Jacobs, Currie (Witts, Rowe)

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

    • Tom says:

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

      • dools says:

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

  9. Tom says:

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

    • SCaddict says:

      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 says:

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

        • SCaddict says:

          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 says:

          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 says:

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

            • dools says:

              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 says:

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

      • Tom says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

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

  10. @PeterHiggo says:

    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.

  11. tension says:

    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 says:

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

  12. Jimmy says:

    no comments on Daniel Hannebery?

    • SCaddict says:

      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 says:

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

  13. Tom says:

    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 πŸ™‚

  14. Marc says:

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

  15. dools says:

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

  16. Tom says:

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

    • Marc says:

      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.

  17. Anthony says:

    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 says:

      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.

    • SCaddict says:

      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 says:

      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 says:

      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.

    • dools says:

      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

  18. Smithayy says:


    DEF : B Gibbs, D Heppell, H Hartlett, B Houli, J Russel, B Goodes (S Docherty, D Terlich)
    MID : J Waston, T Cotchin, S Pendlebury, J Selwood, N Fyfe, T Varcoe, K Mitchell, J Omeara (B Crouch, J Neade)
    RUC : S Jacobs, D Currie (S Rowe, J Witts)
    FOW : J Bartel, D Zorko, T Rockliff, D Martin, J Kennedy, P Karnezis (B Macaffer, S Dwyer)
    Rem Slaray : 12,800

  19. Shimma says:

    Who should I go out of these three? Wines, Brad Hill or Mitchell? taking price into account as well

  20. Tom says:

    Is having JPK or Dangerfield as M3 better
    Having Fyfe & Mundy as my M5 & 6?

  21. uditha says:

    hi guys

    waters v J grimes


    • Tom says:


    • Mac says:

      Barring injury, Grimes

    • dools says:

      Uditha, R U asking who is better or R U asking who is better value for coin with a prospect of upgrading
      Waters Baue type wins hands down for duribility and SC Point generation Over to you mate what do you what?

  22. Anthony says:

    DEF: Goddard, Shaw, Gibbs, Vlatuin, Goodes, Terlich (Pittard, Stevenson)

    MID: Ablett, Pendles, JPK, Danger, Cotch, Wines, Omera, Crouch, (Mitchell, Viney)

    RUC: Jacobs, Currie (Rowe, Moller)

    FWD: Franklin, Cox, Zorko, Rockliff, Karnezis, Macaffer (Neade, Dwyer)

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

  23. Tom says:

    Watts as my F4, good option?

  24. Mac says:

    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 says:

      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.

  25. dan says:

    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


  26. uditha says:

    B – goddard, gibbd, birchall, grimes, goodes, stevenson, (docherty, colquhoun)

    M – ablett, swan, fyfe, swallow, o mera, viney, wines, mayes (mitchell, crouch)

    R – jacobs, longer (witts, currie)

    F-buddy, cox, rockliff, bartell, karnezies, varcoe (dwyer, neade)

    what do u think guys, got a few port power rookies.


  27. uditha says:

    whats ur fwd line tom.

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

    • Tom says:

      My FWD line is

      Cox, Zorko, Rockliff, ____ , Lecras, Varcoe

      don't know who to get with 480k left

      • PortJared04 says:

        Matty Wright or Jack Watts look the goods for that price

      • Phil says:

        I'd back Dusty in at 473k

        • dools says:

          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

  28. SCaddict says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

        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,
        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 says:

      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 says:

        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.

        • theazzyg says:

          Don’t think it’s a little bit risky having a forward line filled with only 2 teams? Might work out, but personally I prefer to have a mix of teams where possible.

  29. Jim says:

    DEF: Gibbs, Duffield, Hepell, Vlastuin, Goodes, Terlich, (Stevenson, Colquhoun)
    MID: Pendelbury, Dangerfield, Cotchin, S. Selwood, Shuey, Wines, Crouch, O'meara (Mitchell, Viney)
    RUCK: Ryder, Jacobs (Rowe, Currie)
    FWD: Zorko, Rockliff, Martin, Watts, LeCras, Karnezis (Mcaffer, Dwyer)
    $68,000 left over

  30. Josh says:

    hey guys, what are your thoughts on zac smith?

  31. dan says:

    i think i have a strong midfield with
    ablett, pendlebury, dangerfield, kennedy, mundy, deledio, Koby stevens, jaeger bomb, crouch, Kanye

  32. Mark says:

    Def: B.Goddard, B.Gibbs, D.Heppel, C.Newman, N.Vlastuin, B.Goodes, L.Stevenson, D.Terlich

    Mid: G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, J.Kennedy, P.Dangerfeild, K.Stevens, O.Wines, J.O’meara, J.Viney, K.Mitchell, B.Crouch

    Ruck: J.Roughead, J.Jenkins, D.Currie, C.Moller

    Fwd: D.Cox, D.Zorko, T.Rockliff, J.Watts, M,Lecras, B.Macaffer, S.Rowe, J.Neade

    Same Ruck strategy as TheCrouchingOne. I like it
    J.Watts and C.Newman I’m not very confident about
    Happy with the rest though

    • @MarkVassett says:

      100k left for upgrades aswell

    • Spifflicator says:

      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.

  33. Jay says:

    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

    Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Hartlett, Goodes, Stevenson (Terlich,Pittard)

    Ablett, Pendlebury, Kennedy, Deledio, Fyfe, Wines, Mitchell, Omeara (Viney,Crouch)

    Jacobs, Currie (Rowe,Michael)

    Cox, Zorko,Rockliff,Martin,Karnezis, Mcaffer (Neade,Dwyer)

    $51K left

    • Popey99 says:

      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.

  34. @MarkVassett says:

    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

  35. Josh says:

    hey guys, what are your thoughts on zac smith?

    • Popey99 says:

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

    • jimbotraralgon says:

      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.


  36. Popey99 says:

    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:
      1) Who should I have as my F4?
      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 πŸ™‚

      • Popey99 says:

        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 says:

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

      • Popey99 says:

        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.

      • Popey99 says:

        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.

    • Heytman says:

      Hey mate, great team there. Was wondering if you could give me any tips? I've gone with more of a midfield rookie based team. Cheers.

      DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Hartlett, Grimes, Vlastuin, Goodes B. SUBS: Stevensen, Colqohun.

      MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Shuey, Moloney, Whitfield, Wines, Mitchell, O-Meara SUBS: Viney, Crouch

      RUC: Jacobs, Leuenbigburger (for now) SUBS: Rowe, Currie

      FWD (set and forget): Franklin, Zorko, Bartel, Rockliff, Johnson, Karnezis SUBS: Macaffer, Neade

      • Popey99 says:

        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 says:

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

          • Popey99 says:

            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.

        • Heytman says:

          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 says:

      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

    • haines_yellow32 says:

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

      • Popey99 says:

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

        • PJ04 says:

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

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

  37. Jake says:

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

    • Popey99 says:

      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 says:

      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.


  38. Matt says:

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

    Any thoughts, ideas or feedback would be much appreciated.

    • Matt says:

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

      • Fabian says:

        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 says:

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

      • Phil says:

        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.

  39. JP123 says:

    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?

  40. Tim says:

    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).


  41. PortJared04 says:

    Can only have 3 of these 4

    Ablett, Pendles, JPKennedy, Danger.


    • Deanbartel says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

      I got all 4

      • SCaddict says:

        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.

  42. Phil says:

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

  43. Fabian says:

    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.

    • SCaddict says:

      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.

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

  49. SCaddict says:

    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.

  50. Andrew says:

    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..

    • dools says:

  51. Josh says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

      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.

  52. Jon says:

    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 says:

      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.

    • mcareec says:

      blicavs is in ruck

  53. BPP says:

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

    • SCaddict says:

      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 says:

      vlastuin is a nobrainer

  54. BPP says:

    and heppell

  55. Doddy says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

      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 says:

        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..

  56. D MAN says:

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

  57. JJFYZZ says:

    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 says:

      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.

  58. James says:

    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.

  59. Liddlejnr says:

    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

  60. @MRB37 says:

    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 says:

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

      I thought they may have changed Lycett from WCE too.

    • BMO says:

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

    • Deanbartel says:

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

    what is anyones thought to that

          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.

    would anyone go for rich?

    • Marc says:

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

    • Jarod says:

      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 says:

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

  73. team changa says:

    lake and rocky or zorko and moloney ??

  74. team changa says:

    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..

  75. dannyboy says:

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

  76. Shimma says:

    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?

  77. Tom says:

    Good on ya Jock on the Supercoach show!

  78. Ben says:

    Quick question, will Sam Mayes play round 1?

    • SCaddict says:

      Extremely unlikely Ben. Wasn't in Brizzy's extended 24 man line-up for the NAB GF nor even listed in the 3 emergencies.

      Could be a good downgrade target later in the season though.

  79. Meggerz says:

    Backs: Goddard, Grimes, Gibbs, Waters, Vlastuin, Goodes (Terlich, Stevenson)

    Mids: Ablett, Watson, Dangerfield, Kennedy, Moloney, Lucas, O'Meara, Crouch (Mitchell, Viney)

    Rucks: Jacobs, Blicavs (Rowe, Currie)

    Fwds: Cox, Zorko, Robinson, Roughhead, Karnezis, Varcoe (Dwyer, Macaffer)

    52K remaining any thought where I could improve or keep the money for trades at season start

    • DOS says:

      don't rely on bilclavs as R2, trade in one of your backs for a rookie and spend it on a decent ruckman

    • SCaddict says:

      I think your ruck situation is fine mate. There's a strong chance that Blicavs will play plenty of early games with the Cats big man fitness issues right now. Currie may even get a few games early too.

      If neither play you can always swing Cox into the ruck as you have forward coverage on your bench with Macaffer.

      However your forward and ruck structure is very similar to my set-up so I guess I was always going to like it! πŸ™‚

      • dannyboy says:

        mine is the same structure and im very confident with it. got maric as the main man tho i reakon he gets more of the pill than jacobs. blicavs will play lots early till mcintosh and west return

    • Spifflicator says:

      I would lose Lucas in the mids for a better priced rookie, ne won’t earn you enough cash. K.Stevens looks to have better job security and is significantly lower in price.

      You could use the extra to upgrade Grimes (def) or Robinson (f). Is Robinson suspended for rnd 1?

  80. Matt says:

    Would love some opinions from the community regarding Dane's Dealers. Cheers.

    Backs: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Goodes, Vlastuin, Stevenson (Terlich, Pittard)

    Mids: Ablett, Swan, Dangerfield, Shuey, Bennell, Fyfe, OMeara, Viney (Wines, Crouch)

    Rucks: Jacobs, Leuenberger (Currie, Rowe)

    Forwards: Cox, Zorko, Rockliff, LeCras, Varcoe, Macaffer (Neade, Dwyer)

    14K in the coffers and tossing up a few upgrades and PODs.

    Any advice community?

  81. dannyboy says:

    stevens or viney is now bugging me. im nearly locked in pretty much just the rookie structure to go.

    Back- Goddard, Gibbs, Heppel, Vlastuin, Goodes, Terlich (pittard, stevenson)
    Mid- GAJ, Swan, JPK, Nat Knife, Moloney, Lucas, Mitchell, O'mera, (stevens, crouch)
    Ruck- Maric, Blicavs, (Rowe, Currie)
    Fwd- Buddy, Cox, Zorko, Rocky, LeCras, Karnezis (Mcaffer, Neade)

    Any feedback or criticism welcomed

    • Josh says:

      Heaps of potential there mate. I think having all 3 of Fyfe, Moloney and Lucas is pretty risky, though it could well pay off. You've got a heavy FWD line so you've got room to adjust if you feel it's too risky in the MID.

      A couple of calculated risks are a must in my book!

      • dannyboy says:

        yeah i was thinking because of the the lack of rookies in the forwards to stack it the most. there are so many potential mids this year that the risk of trying to make some cash quickly in that area is to good to refuse. in this game its more of a risk to not take a risk! im happy with my structure now i just need the right rookies…

    • SCaddict says:

      We have very similar teams and strategies. I have an extra premium defender and you have an extra premium forward but other than that there are minimal differences really. So good thinking I say!

  82. dools says:

    Damn spelt that incorrectly (LOL) as I just tid then OBLIGITARY Pleases tells me thats corrects..Take That speelchecc

  83. Josh says:

    Hey fellas, absolutely loving the community here. I've never posted my team and I know that a lot of people keep their teams in hiding, but most of us aren't here to steal other teams, more to gain advice and help.

    I know I'll cop a bit of flak but I've chosen to go without Ablett, Goddard and Frankilin. My thinking being that there's a decent chance that GAJ and Buddy will drop in price early and that other defenders should give similar output to Goddard at a much cheaper price.

    Any criticism and advice welcome!

    DEF: Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell, Newman, Goodes, Terlich (Pittard, Steven)

    MID: Pendles, JPK, Danger, Deledio, Montagna, Lucas, K.Mitchell, O'meara (Crouch, Viney)

    RUCK: Cox, Blicavs (Currie, Rowe)

    FWD: Roughead, Rockliff, Bartel, Robinson, Kennedy, Karnezis (Mcaffer, Neade)

    • Josh says:

      If GAJ really is crucial I was thinking of pushing Montagna out for Hanneberry?

    • dannyboy says:

      My thoughts on GAJ, Buddy, Goddard are that at some stage of the season when they are worth gettin in, the amount of trades it will take to get them in might be costly, especially if you are planning to get in all three, not to mention the points (mainly GAJ and buddy) will score that you will miss out on. if you are planning on getting them at all may as well do it now. and big deal if they go down they are guns and will just go up again anyways. but hey, maybe im just defending them cos i have all three. Good luck for the season joshy boy

      • dannyboy says:

        i had hanneberry but changed to moloney and now have 87k in the kick. i figured they are both a POD with the same potential output, but moloney was cheaper. who knows what ill be thinkin tomorrow tho…

    • Jarod says:

      Montagna is suspended round 1

  84. Texastye says:

    Thoughts on baguley & armstrong in def, and bewick( did he just have a good nab or can he be an 80+ player. Struggling with my fwd line have 4 bris players, it’s uncomfortable on the eye

  85. dannyboy says:

    yeah like it pretty similar to mine i have one more rookie position in my mids than you cos i reakon there is more $$$ to be made out of the midfield than anywhere else. Structure is more or less the same though

    • Matt says:

      Yeah I thought about throwing another rookie like Mitchell or Stevns in the MIDS but I think Bennel/Fyfe will make me $$ while being an instant points provider.

  86. Kodesz says:

    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Vlaustin, Goodes,Stevenson (Terlich,Colquhoun)

    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Danger, Shuey, Bennell, Mundy, Wines, O’meara (Crouch, Viney)

    RUC: Jacobs, Currie (Rowe, Blicavs)

    Very settled on this except for the rucks and the rookies are also subject to change. Any advice, criticism or feedback would be appreciated! Also great podcast boys!

  88. Lou says:

    Hi everyone, please can you take a look at my team, and let me know your thoughts… and is it too heavy weighted for mids?…
    Thanks so much.





    • SCaddict says:

      It's hard to pass up on all those tasty elite mids isn't it? It has me salivating a little.

      Although your team strategy is quite different to mine I think it's perfectly respectable and it's always good to see a bit of variety in SC.

      The one change I would suggest however is dumping Daw and replacing him with Blicavs. He's very likely to get named for Rd 1 where I believe Majak not so much.

  89. Jon says:

    OK.. I am totally torn of who to take,

    Birchall, Lake, Duffy, Newman, Watts,

    Heppell or Harlett.

    • Deanbartel says:

      Most will say Heppell….but Newman is also looking good. I'd take Houli > newman though

  90. @coldlunch says:

    Thoughts on my current team guys?

    DEF: B. Goddard, B. Gibbs, D. Heppell, N. Vlastuin, B. Goodes, D. Terlich // J. Pittard, L. Stevenson

    MID: D. Swan, G. Ablett, S. Pendlebury, J. Kennedy, N. Fyfe, O. Wines, K. Mitchell, J. O'Meara // J. Viney, S. Colquhoun

    RUC: S. Jacobs, M. Leuenberger // M. Blicavs, S. Rowe

    FWD: D. Cox, D. Zorko, T. Rockliff, D. Martin, M. Walters, P. Karnezis // B. Macaffer, J. Neade

    expecting to either play Blicavs in R1 for Leuenberger, or shift Cox in with Macaffer slotting into the fwd line. Maybe move Cox to permanent ruck role eventually, cashing in Leuenberger and upgrading a fwd.

    unsure at the moment on:
    — Fyfe vs Mundy/Shuey/
    — Martin + Walters vs premo + rookie, or another high+mid combo (Franklin + Lee, Robinson + Kennedy/Varcoe?)
    — Colquhoun to Moloney, Martin to Varcoe
    — Jacobs to Maric, Walters to Kennedy

    Walters is a big call i know, but am looking for a genuine POD somewhere and think he could be it. very confident he will average 80+ from round 1 with excellent JS. interested in your thoughts though!

    • Mark From launceston says:

      Good to see you have not jumped on the Ablett "Bandwagon"!!. Over priced and will do 6-10 pocessions average LESS this season. (Mainly due to rest of team stepping up)

      Franklin will play 16 games this season (if lucky) too high to have somebody sitting on their arse.

      I too have taken a punt on Lecras. he boots 60+ goals a season and see him doing 80+ if injury free. A risk, but I believe he will be 600k+ by seasons end

  92. Shezza says:

    It was only one month ago most had cotchin in their team. What has changed since then?

  95. Tom says:

    Perfect tactic for the captain loophole this week!
    Have Stevie J in your FWD and have him as starting captain. Geelong play the last game of the round AND he's not playing. Perfect

  96. Mark says:

    My team
    Defenders- Goddard, gibbs, enright, hartlett, vlastuin, goods (Terlich, Stevenson)
    Midfieders- Ablett (C), Cotchin, Dangerfield (VC), Heppell, Moloney, Stevens, Mitchell, O’Meara (Viney, Crouch)
    Rucks- Cox, Currie (Rowe, Witts)
    Forwards- Franklin, Pavlich, Bartel, Rockliff, Varcoe, Karnezis(Macaffer, Lee)

  97. Ryan says:

    Hey guys, I'm going with a slightly risky and different strategy this year. It is mainly bout cash generation and a couple of midfielders stepping up. Rather than stack my midfield now, I have gone for some cheaper options who can step up and become superstars if healthy. This way I can pick up the premium midfielders that are really firing.

    Let me know what you think.

    BACKS: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Hanley, Goodes, Pittard (Stevenson, Terlich)

    MIDS: Ablett, Dangerfield, Fyfe, Mundy, Moloney, Wines, Mitchell, Viney (O'meara, Crouch)

    RUCKS: Jacobs, Blicavs (Rowe, Currie)

    FWDS: Cox, Pavlich, Zorko, Rockliff, Varcoe, Karnezis (Macaffer, Dwyer)

    I have Cox as a swingset with Rowe in case Blicavs or Currie aren't playing. I'm also waiting on whether Dwyer gets elevated and named round one, if not he can become one of the other fwd rookies.

    I have $240,200 spare cash for first upgrades.


  98. Andy says:

    Mark: I'm thinking of taking the risk with Currie as my R2 also but I'm still concerned about my decision, are you second guessing your decision also?. I've gone with Bartel also as my F3 but may need to downgrade him.

    Here is my team:

    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Newman, Vlastuin, Goodes (Terlich, Stevenson)

    MIDS: GAJ, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Cotchin, Shuey, Wines, O'meara, K. Mitchell (Viney, Crouch)

    RUCKS: Roughhead, Currie (Rowe, Blicavas)

    FWDS: Cox, Zorko, Bartel, Rockliff, Varcoe, Macaffar (Neade, Kerridge).

    I'm concerned about my R2, so I'm considering doing the following:

    Bartel to Karnezis or Mayne or even Jack Watts
    Shuey to Maloney

    This will allow me to get Zac Smith as my R2.

    What does everyone think? Your help will be greatly appreciated!

    PS – Jock, you looked sharp on fox footy last night!

  99. Tony says:

    Hi Jock great podcast. Now that Blicavs is a RUCK/MID what do you think about having him as R2

    • Bomber Stef says:

      Looks the goods for a bench position!! Could be the no.1 ruckman at the cats!!

  100. Shaggs says:

    What will Varcoe's price be after he has played 3 games?

    • SCaddict says:

      If I was to guess maybe $280-300K?

      • Shaggs says:

        His break even scores are 50, 127, 130 for the first 3 rounds…

        • Adam says:

          In that case, less than his current price, can't see him getting 127 or 130

          • SCaddict says:

            No not sure what Shaggs is on about. Varcoe just needs to average more than 50 in the first 3 rounds for his price to go up which seems fairly likely I would think. I've gone for other mid-pricers which I believe represent slightly better value fwiw.

            If what Shaggs said was true then no one would be picking him and he certainly wouldn't be in the Father of Fantasy Football's team!

            There seems to be bit of a lack of understanding here of how BEs work at the start of the season.

            • McFog says:

              Shaggs is a retard

            • footyinme says:


              • SCaddict says:

                Yeah last week someone was advocating that Orren Stephenson was a bargain buy because his starting BE was apparently -32.

                I don't think so!

                Please do yourself a favour guys and sign up to Supercoach Gold or use some other legit resource to get your BE facts right.

  101. Alex says:

    What do you guys think of Spangher as a FWD bench option? Will he get games? Really struggling to find good FWD bench coverage.

    • SCaddict says:

      He's been respectable in the NAB Cup but he's probably a fringe Hawks player at best. Unfortunately the Hawks game is the very last of the round so you may not know whether he's playing or has a green vest etc until late in the round.

      I'm in a similar dilemma with regards Bradley Hill.

    • kodesz says:

      definitely use that idea!

      • Tom says:

        If you're considering an early upgrade to Ablett, then why waste a trade on him? Start with him

        • Josh says:

          Ablett isn't a must have. Others could give similar output this year and free's up cash to build your team. I'm going no ablett, no franklin and no goddard. Us no ablett starters will be laughing when he's averaging 115 at round 6 πŸ™‚

  106. Tom says:

    Cox > Jacobs?
    Jacobs > Cox?

    • SCaddict says:

      Cox 100%.

      His DPP status is also very handy but even if he didn't have that I'd pick Cox all the time every time.

      Having said that Jacobs is my R1 ha ha.

      • Tom says:

        thanks mate πŸ˜€

        • SCaddict says:

          Yeah just to clarify I have Jacobs as my R1 and Cox as my F1. But if I could only fit one in my team I would definitely choose Cox for the extra $55K.

          Fortunately I don't have to.

          • Tom says:

            So in that respect, you think that I should have the same structure as you, and get rid of Roughead as my F1?

            • SCaddict says:

              Roughy is a perfectly respectable choice as your F1 so wouldn't go messing around too much with your team if you really like him.

              All I'm saying is I reckon Cox would be a very handy addition to your team especially as it looks like Nic Nat will miss the first few rounds.

              Nothing wrong with Jacobs either. It all comes down to personal preferences in the end and what you can accommodate in your team structure and cap space.

          • Tom says:

            Also, do you have another premium as your R2?

            • SCaddict says:

              No I'm taking a punt on Blicavs with Currie and Rowe on the bench.

              Although there's some risk attached to that strategy the spare cash allows me to get that extra premium defender in Hanley into my backline that I was really coveting in place of Vlastuin who I still have a few doubts about.

  107. Chris says:

    Who to get
    Heppell or Mundy ?
    Help ?

  108. Jarod says:

    Hey guys Cotchin or Deledio?

    • footyinme says:

      Deledio for mine he's more prolific with the ball and is more consistent with sc pionts.
      I say this because i believe Cotchin is the engine of the Tiger midfield and because of this he will get tag after tag, making his sc scores up and down.

      • footyinme says:

        On the other hand many other people believe this fact aswell making CotchIn a worthy POD!

  109. Tom says:

    What would you say on this FWDline?

    FWD: Roughead, Zorko, Rockliff, Johnson, Lecras, Jenkins (Macaffer, Dwyer)

    -unsure about Jenkins, is he a good option for the class RUC/FWD swing
    – is Johnson really worth his price tag? don't care about suspension in R1

    • footyinme says:

      hmmm Jenkins $363,300 averaged 67.9 sc pts in 2012.
      could avg 75 this season.

      O'Hailpin $252,500 averaged 59.0 sc pts in 1/2 a game in 2012.
      could avg 70 this season.

      if you want to have the ruck swing?

  110. PortJared04 says:

    Midfield as it stands:
    Ablett, Pendles, JP Kennedy, Shuey, Fyfe, Moloney, Wines, O'Meara (Crouch, Mitchell)

    Have $166k in the bank, like Shuey as a POD however, having this cash I'm thinking of swapping Shuey for Dangerfield. Thoughts?

  111. Tom says:

    Goddard > Duffield > Birchall?

    Duffield > Goddard > Brchall?

    Birchall > Goddard > Duffield?

    Basically i need to choose one. Don't know who

    • footyinme says:

      Birchall don't know how he's gonna go early on in the season with so many of his fellow team mates down back with him. Goddard could avg up to120 pts this season if he doesn't get the tag too often. But Duffield is best of these 3, but have you considered Hanley Pearce?

      • SCaddict says:

        C'mon guys it's Pearce Hanley! It's about the third time I've had to correct someone. Please show a modicum of respect to the Irishman. Sorry I'm a little cranky tonight. πŸ™‚

        And yes he's in my team over the likes of Birchall and the Duffman who are valid alternatives.

        Btw you don't want to be left behind by not having Goddard in your team if you are gunning for maximum league wins.

    • SCaddict says:

      Yes he's in my team atm. Looks completely rejuvenated under Mick. His disposal efficiency could still do with some improvement but he's been getting plenty of the ball.

      Yes that's a nice looking team. Only suggestion I have would be to drop the Big Mummy. Just too much of an injury and suspension risk for my liking.

      So I reckon you would be better off going with Bellchambers, Kreuzer or Jaymar for a mid pricer or upgrading to a premium like Jacobs, Roughy of McEvoy.

      Btw I didn't realise KB was making a comeback to footy after his long stint on the Rules Committee?! πŸ™‚

  125. Jay says:

    quick question

    Stefan Martin or Josh Jenkins

    Hannebery or K Stevens – Thinking Hannebery will avg 100-110 and hold his spot or Stevens will avg 75 make $200k and then will need to be upgraded?

      I hope he kicks it up to another level this year and will be looking to bring him in at some stage. Improvement from other North mids may see the eat taken off him – but he is able to play thru a tag anyways.

    Hey there JR and community,

    For the Captain's loophole bonus in a rolling lock out…Can the captain only be chosen from the 1St game of the round (ie:Crows vs Bombers)???

    And the captaincy goes to a player not playing and you choose a VC and you get double points….? (ie: chosse Watson as VC)

    • Marc says:

      It depends on when your Captain is playing. For example, if your Captain plays on Saturday, you can only use the VC loophole on the Friday night game. If he plays on a Sunday, then you’ve got the Friday and Saturday games to pick from. So if you’ve got Gary Ablett, since he plays something like 18 of 23 on a Saturday, that means you’ll usually only have the Friday night game to pick your VC from.

      You put your VC on the guy playing before your captain. If he scores high enough, then you swap out a starting player for a non-playing player and put the Captain on him (make sure you set your emergency as the guy you swapped out though). Since the non-player gets 0, then your VC score gets doubled. This is why in CrouchingOne’s team he picked a guy in his rucks who’s never going to play, so he will always have a non-playing player and thus will always be able to use the loophole. If you go with a team where all 30 guys get picked, you can’t use the loophole because you won’t have a non-scoring player to put onto the field and make captain.

    $97K left

    Tossing up between JPK, Danger and Watson at M3 – but JPK has better fixture first few rounds…

    Too many mid-pricers in the forward line perhaps? Could downgrade Varcoe to Neade and upgrade Petterd?

    What are people's thoughts on Chapman, Pavlich, Montagna and Dal Santo this season – are they past it? Dal Santo / Montagna have favourable first 3 rounds to start the season…

    Anyone know if Jarryd Lyons for Adelaide is any chance to play Rd 1?

    ? I have Pendles or Swan? Heppel plus 46k Roughy as R2? And Blicavs is the flavour of the day why? Won’t Vardy be no.1 ruck and which other M/R are there.

    I agree with Jock about money making backline and stable ruck duo. I have a heavy loaded midfield for early high scores but i feel i can still make money as well. Went with Tex and Walker because they should have big starts with no Nic Nat and Tippet. Josh Kennedy should have a blinding start to the year with a really easy draw making me choose him over cotchin. Moloney for me was a no brainer now with job sercurity and its looks like he is back to his best.

    Cheers Guys

    – still not 100% sure on shuey at m5
    – not sure not spagher, possible suckling replacement?
