Your mob – winning or losing? Week 2

Published by Jock on

Your Supercoach Mob

Stared at my bedroom ceiling last night and couldn’t sleep. The Little Master Gary Ablett Jr did it all again. He’s split our teams into two groups again. Those that have him. And those that don’t.

I had a bloody whirlwind of emotions going through my head. Amazement. Respect. Arousal. But underpinning all that was a feeling of concern for those from our beloved fantasy footy community who may have chosen to leave him out of their opening teams. They’ll be hurting. I need those of you out there to spend a few minutes watching this motivational video we compiled last week with the help of community genius The Mad Irishman:

Of course it’s not panic stations if you don’t have him – you know I like to carry on like a bloody pork chop sometimes. Let’s open up a discussion now about how all of our teams are faring – with an eye to the future and your plans moving into round 2.

Who’s hitting the trade button, who’s holding back, which players are you looking to flick and which blokes will you be looking to bring in. What is the best strategy at this time of the year, and what are the mistakes that you won’t be making this season?

Hope you’re all having a corker of an easter,

At the moment i am 1243 from 15 and ive got.the captain,on Swanny


Also at the moment im hoping karnezis will go up in price enough for me to only need a bit more for Robinson who will drop dramatically in price

team changa

hey jock great post. my capt loop hole didnt work so was unable to get gary's captain score. im sitting on 1518 with 7 left hoping to finish on 2000 or so.. changed my rookies around. shuey and bennel did poorly and will have to trade lecra. but not touching a thing until round 3, although one trade will go for lecra prob for kennedy. but if dwyer gets another game next week ill be moving him from my bench to cover lecra, swinging jacobs from my ruck into my fl and buying another cheap ruck rookie or mid price fl player since i have 370k in the kitty. still tossing up between wines and toumpas though… the other trade i might be making is crouch out for toumpas if he is not named next week for the crows.


Might be off to my best start in years on 1670 from 15 with Swan Bartel Buddy Birchall Mccaffer Wines and Viney left hoping for a big score this week


huge chance of getting to 2300 with those. Hopefully wines doesn't cop the vest!


Its not too late to enter Centrebets FANTASY LEAGUE. There is not many people registeted after the first round so you have a massive chance of winning the $150,000 plus there are weekly prizes. Its in the dreamteam format and is FREE to register and play-


I might have made a huge mistake in not naming Ablett the captain,Hope Swan has a blinder today


1506 off 13


Sitting on 1302 still 10 to play!! Have gone in very light
this year have left 465k in the bank to go upgrading
Later on!!

Old Holbz

Currently on 1674 with 7 left. Pittard, Pendles, Wines, K. Mitchell, Buddy, Varcoe and Macaffer.
Gotta trade out LeCras, but won't be touching him until just before the price changes.
One of the 4000 who started with JPK last year and goodness gracious me I am glad I stuck with him this year. Out and out gun!


1569, with swan, pendles, bartel, wines, viney, Mccaffer , pittard and stevenson to come….


One word Jock GIBBS


also got $323,000 in the bank for upgrades round 3-4


1,597 from 14. Still 4 Port rookies, Pendles, Franklin, Roughy and Varcoe. Doing better than I’d expected.


1727 off 15 with 2 more premiums and 5 rookies to go. Captain played

Supercoach jesus

Sitting on 1731 with 9 to play includung swan among other


1754 from 15 with GAZ as captain.
Tried using the captains loophole on Cotch. Another 10 points and I would have prob used the loophole. Happy I went with Gaz tho.
Positives: Gaz, taking the mumford risk, selecting JPK over watson and danger.
Negatives: Lecras injury (In SC regular, SC draft, DT, and as an eagles supporter 🙁 ),
Selecting zorko over rockliff (after changing them each week, although I have faith that zorko will pick up) and Newman… not the worst, but selected him hoping he'd push for premium output.

Too Hottie

Stuffed up the captain loophole with the rolling lockout, wont try that again. Got Gaz, Gibbs and JPK so happy with those three. 1739 with Happy Toumpy, Son of Todd, Hartlett, Surname for a first name Russell & the Roughed up Head to play.
Going for league win so not fussy on overall scores, concerns however with K. Stevens hammy & Hanleys report!


1749 after the g ablett show. 15 played. Still buddy,swallow and swanny to come with a port defense. Very pleased I loaded the guts. Danger the only fail but he is an all season keeper


Stevenson, pittard, macaffer and blicavs on the ground with the above trio.


had the choice between Mundy, Barlow, Armitage and steven as my breakout P.O.D, went with Steven. Spewing. Played well just too many frees against and clangers in that last quarter.

Cold Pies

1759 from 14
going ok so far i think
bloody happy traded longer for mummy last minute

Cold Pies

also very happy to have bartel still to play given this weather


1942 after 18 completed on Wines, Pittard, Pendlebury and Blicavs left. Should get 2150?


Put the C on Kennedy from Swans he made 147 (298) in wich I'm damn happy then thought to myself hope Ablett doesn't do better, hahaha well 178 (356) is allot better!

Jake Kuyper

I’m sitting on 1355 with 9 to play… Shaw, grimes, selwood, Mitchell vines Hawkins, watts and cloke!!!! I think I might be onto a goo side this year!!!

Jake Kuyper

And Goldstein I forgot!!


Luke brown injury last week was a bummer jock he was looking good as a pod rookie on the ground. Right to go rd 2 I believe.


Dustin Martin mediocre again, crap second half and just like last year really.


take as a positive mate he has only ever been averaging mid 80's against Carlton. I have him in my team too, this is the season mate watch out!!!


1758, 16 played with wines Stephenson viney Macaffer pendelbry and hartlett


1650 with 8 to play, including 2 premiums & a mid priced. Little maestro was skipper. Have Danger, so things can only improve……


Have to wait & see who gets the vest for P.A today……..


hey jock thanks for all help rapped with mr crimmins advice on d. martin seem up to his old tricks first half outstanding 2nd half no where to be seen ..

currently 1380 with 9 players left have watts and grimes viney toumpas to many Melbourne players ??


im looking at 1650 with Russell, pendals, wines, roughead, Bartell, varco and mccaffer left…. im tossing up dropping russel for pittard and roughead for franklin??? thoughts jock? or anyone?


keep Roughead if you don't have 2 premium rucks.
Pittard may make you more cash early, but he can score those lousy 10's and 20's.


Should I start with Viney or Kane Mitchell on ground today??


And Also Dwyer Or Neade??


Neade!!!!!!! I think he has Greys job atm till he comes back


check who gets the vest first mate between the port bench. Viney is named on field and Mitchell is named on bench. Viney is the safe choice and so is the job security.


1670 from 15 played…ablett, pendles, watson and kennedy are 4 must haves


Well off to a solid start have 2050 after 17 players and jpk as my captain


1579 off 14 with Pendlebury, Hartlett, Bartel, Varcoe, Pittard. Wines/Viney, Mitchell, Macaffer. Plus I had Zorko and danger who failed so I'm going very nicely 🙂


Gotta get Gibbs in somehow. Goddard or atley may have to make way


1775/15 with Gaj as Capt…..quite happy after a couple of early disappointments in Heppell, Zorko lucas…etc but stoked with Gaj, Gibbs both Kenndys and Cotchin and Mayne…….Been reading on another site all the contortions people are going through to get the Captains loophole onto Gaj… IN a non playing rookie and playing him on the field…blah blah blah,,,,,just have the big C in Gaj every week and pick rookies that PLAY and earn coin…..cant be simpler than that can it????


Sorry Jock and Community….yes I have been whoring around on other sites….wont happen again….forgive me.

Ps still have Franklin Pendles Swan Beams Blicavs Mitchell k Viney/jones and Macaffer to go


Im just killing it !.. 1900 with 7 to play including Swan-Franklin-varcoe-macaffer-pittard-viney and blicavs, $1000 coming my way hey ?..


nice man who else is in your team??
im on 1204 from 11 still got capt swan pendles bartel shaw franklin varcoe macaffer J.Russell wines k.mitchell and pittard


*mow* good luck!


I have got 2538 plz tell me what your coz I think I might win 1k


1929 with 17 played. Had VC on JPK, so I decided to use the loophole and put the C on Tom Lee to get Kennedys score, and then Ablett went nuts! I knew there was a reason I usually did set and forget with that guy. Only have 1 big gun in Pendlebury left, so I’m guessing a score of 2200 will be around what I get.


1695/15, Gaz capt, H Shaw, Stevenson, Pendles, Wines, Cloke, Varcoe, Macaffer to play, hoping for 2200, very happy with 2100+. Only first round peeps, don’t get too worried or cocky!

The benchmark

1609 14 played 8 remaining…d swan h shaw j watts and 5 solid rookies. Some very high scores.would a 2200 score be par?


got 1109 after 12 still got my cap to play who is swan and got some knowen huge scores as well so lets hope I get 2200 or 2300 reckon swan is going tear the kangaroos a knew one today and bartel will tear the hawks apart as well


Kane Mitchell is the Sub! today


Will wait until round 2. Trade Dangerfield (if he fails again) for Ablett as I have about 100k spare, and downgrade de boer to another mid pricer like Siposs or Kennedy


1812 from 15 captain has played and still got 2 premiums and 5 rookies left. Very very happy


Ended up getting 2538 and coming 16th. If you don’t believe me my team name is IAMALEGEND FFC

team changa

mitchell or toumpas??


Hmmm seems like I’m the only one who’s not doing that good M Robinson burned me only scoring 20 points. 1654 after 16 players used, still have Pendle, Watts and 4 rookies to play. Not looking that good at all, I think I might have to do some trading before round 2 still have $200K in cap.


Who should I play
Stevenson or Pittard
Viney or Neade


1573 with 15 played… still have swanny, pendles, watts, elliot, toumpas, stevenson and blicavs to play. Only rolled by zorko and shuey

team changa

mitchell or toumpas????


mitchell vested, so toumpas

team changa

yeaH going toumpas for long term job security anyhow. good luck today boys!!


currently on 1204 from 11 hoping swanny (captain) can match ablett


I was on 6 from 486, now am on 1609 from 14 thanks to gibbs, kennedy, rockliff, and the amazing gazza (as captain)!


But I am annoyed at not knowing that mitchell was the sub until the lockout started.
Viney would have been the replacement and he is on fire. ANGRY!!!!!


1696 with 6 to play. Not great. Poor starts by Ryder, Danger, Bennell etc. hoping Buddies new goal kicking technique means he’s going to kick 10 tomorrow


Why oh why did I choose Jack Watts? Should I give him another week or should I take advantage of the extra trades and get rid of him… He looks terrible out there!


I’m hanging onto him for another week see what happens, another stinker like that and his price is going to plummet! I’ll only keep him if scores well above 100, if not ill bring in hartlett or Pearce


2187 with 2 to play (pendles and mccaffer). Had some highs and lows, but could not have done it without you and the teams assistance uncle jock. Keep up the good work 🙂
