How are you travelling in round 12 community?

Published by Jock on

Your Supercoach Mob

JR Brumby FC received an early kick in the pants with poor old Marc Murphy subbed off early with next to nothing.

We wish young Murph all the best in his recovery – looks as if he might have busted his jaw. I wont remind Marc that as skipper of Karingal circa 1971 premiership team I played three weeks with a compound fracture of the femur to set an example to my team mates. However these are different times – and on behalf of Higgo, Crouch, Vince, Crimm, Mick and the community as a whole I’d like to pass on my wishes for a speedy recovery.

Let’s kick off the round 12 conversation nice and early this week eh? So how is your mob coping with round 12 so far? How many of you have the required 18 warm bodies on the field of battle this week? How many trades do you have left?

I’ll tell you one thing – you’re old mate Jock needs a big one this week and with Murph off and Mitch Robbo playing with one arm it looks as if the bloody Supercoach gods are playing marbles with the old plums this weekend.

Mr_Consistent

Nice!

jonathan

I finally brought in Bloody Buddy Franklin this week Jock and he bloody gun you say me!!

Bryce and Birch also providing the goods for "True Guns" this round.

Jake

Gibbs+Buddy 248 pre scaling, great start, have to recover after 1768 from 16 players last week

Slots'Superstars

550SC from 5 tonight. 21 playing this week, 17 last week and 19 next week I think.

Mr_Consistent

Good Job Mate!

Slots'Superstars

Ended up being scaled to 619 from 6, I forgot Sam Rowe finally got another game. Held onto him this entire time for the Fwd/Ruck part he plays with Cox.

Saltysalts

He was a late inclusion for carazzo…dont beat yourself up noone saw it coming! At least i didnt

@remy_brown

Sitting on 544SC with Buddy, Gibbs, Kruezer, Birchall and Hill all getting good scores.

@The_IronSock

491 from 5. Have Vice loophole on Gibbs at 132,keep this or go little baby Jesus>

Dazza

The little master will match that at least..probably better it.

@The_IronSock

Tough one, might have to see Hocking history on Jesus.

Dee

147….. Absolute legend! Gazza is a lock for me every week for captaincy, why would people even contemplate on who to captain? Seriously…. The greatest ever and will win the brownlow medal this year!

Saltysalts

I made an extra 6 points on Dangerman from the loophole…was it worth the risk? Baha! Probably not

Marc

3 for 361.

Bye rounds are annoying me. At least I haven’t had to do any sideways trading and will have accomplished all my planned upgrades.

footyinme

361 from 3 have 20 players for best 18 scores this round and 9 trades left, going to pick up Swans beast Tom Mitchell and Fyfe next week after bringing in Barlow and BIrchall this week.

micki S

Hey footyinme, I'v also put in Barlow and Birchall. I got Duffield too. I probably should've got Ibbotson instead.

Jake

what do people think of hrovat possibly not playing?
I have coverage so went martin this week

Mr_Consistent

He is out, I am left hoping he is a Late in come sunday…

Dee

You reckon he'll be a late in mate?! I'm gonna pray tonight…. LOL.

EthanM

Supercoach is alright, can't say the same for the blues! :(((

Mr_Consistent

Agreed Mate :(]

micki S

I HATE THE BLUES

PhilM

457 with Buddy and Kreuzer. Have 18 playing but buggered this year with only 6 trades left. First year for and it has been great fun. Go the Suns

PhilM

Whoops 235 it should have been. Mixed up my NRL and AFL. We multitask up here in the Sunshine State

Michael

453/4, thanks to Birch (brought in this week!), Buddy, Gibbs, Walker. 19 on field in total, looking at around 2000 for the round.

NutSack

It sounded more like Murphs had a serious busted skull. If he is on morphine for a couple weeks it will be 10 weeks minimum. Hodge will get a month off for both incidents. He looked down and saw Murphy, then extended his elbow on the way out. The other one was a stupid high contact.

Dont pick GAJ as your C…………… at your own peril…….many have missed his scores this year. His average is better than most players ceilings.

Great with Hrovat missing- can jump on him next week- but will he get anymore games now?

Osh

Why is Hrovat not playing?????

Liam

I think they said its a fractured cheekbone for Murphy and will miss a month of footy

Top_Cotch

Nothing for Hodgey i'm sorry. He is considered a tough but fair player and the MRC always goes soft on them. Ala Juddy.

If he was Jack Ziebell on the other hand he'd miss 8 weeks.

Saltysalts

Im no hawks supporter, but it looked to me that the extended arm was caused by his body’s sudden stop of motion. He has his head over the ball, but more importantly he elected to go the footy and not the man. Contact was incidental and Marc Murphy was extremely low down at the contest causing contact to the head.

Hodgey will get off that one…didnt see the other one..? Also agree with Top_Cotch here as well MRP has Hodgeys balls cupped

Jeremy

Walker and Buddy's combined scores were decent.. Very displeased with one of my 'PODs' in Breust. Got him after round 7 where he was averaging 93, has averaged 67.5 since. He's the one weak link in my team

Rocksta

480 odd from 5, but have 19 warm bodies and thus one of my 2 low scores may be thrown out ( Rowe 55).
Have 9 trades left and only plan to upgrade last rookie mid to Cotchin next week( 1 trade).
I want to keep 3 trades for league finals thus will be very conservative with trades from here on in. That said, I only have 2 more rookie to upgrade to get a full team of premiums ( if you can call Robinson a premium). Yea Jock, looks like he hurt a shoulder in the 2 nd Qtr tonight but Murph had already been subbed out.

Chumpy

Not happy with Jordan Lewis, traded him in this week hoping for a POD, and he came out with just 57 SC points. Should have just bitten the bullet and spent the extra 80k on Nic Nat.

@The_IronSock

Yeah, I had a similar choice on Daisy V Johnson weeks ago.

I reckon at this stage if you have cash and low on cash cows, best to spend more for the known quantity.

Favalinko

Think Lewis might be BURN MAN. He only ton up against GWS Gold Coast and Melb. Should have gone for Nic Nat he proven gun. Hope im wrong Chumy good luck. Welcome

Dan

Ok, Burgoyne is gone next week, Drivin me to bloody drink! Thinking Gibbs if I can raise the cash.

Top_Cotch

Must hold Burgoyne Dan he premium …. and still good value if you didn't pay too much.

If he drive you mad do you have any of Jobe Watson, Grant Birchall or even JPK ?

Me think they make you very drunk sometime.

Dan

I have Jobe, Birch & JJK (WCE). But thinking to get kieran Jack or Hanneberry next round. Traded Omera for Barlow this round. Sorry DT’er hijacking this SC discussion. I can’t help it.

I like to have a tipple every now & then.

Osh

453 sc 4 played. Really happy with Gibbs and Buddy starting to put out premium scores now.

Favalinko

HI Community please answer me this does the captain loop hole still work with bye players on the bench or do they have to be on the ground? You answer me this, welcome.

Mr_Consistent

You can do it, however!!! If you 18 players on the ground you're emergency's score doesn't count

Favalinko

Thank you have a full team on the park and all bye players on bench so no emergencys. Welcome.

Liam

Good start to the round with buddy and Gibbs 100+ each. I'm just wondering whether this loophole works as I have only done it twice this year. I put the vc on ablett, c on thurlow as he has the bye, Vlaustin as emergency and if GAJ under performs I put the C on swanny for tomorrow? Does this sound alright?

Mr_Consistent

If you have 18 or more playing the Emergency's score doesn't count, do you have 18 on the field?

Sloan

I'm playing a guy who has VC on Ablett and Cox as Cap playing the loop. BUT he has 20 other players on the field who will score so Cox's bye zero won't factor in.

So because one of his 18 isn't a zero, won't he lose his double cap points?

Mr_Consistent

What are your thoughts on Matthew Boyd, Community???

Chris

I put him in my sides couple of weeks ago but en had to reverse my trades.. He is a proven player.. Although maybe give him a week to adjust back to afl I reckon

Favalinko

Boyd could be a good POD he very cheap and can pump out some big scores. He play melbourne and brisbane in finals also. He Boyd is good pick he gun. welcome.

Jack's mate

He may be gun, but you no crouching

Favalinko

This is true there is one master but i try to study the s/c ways of the wise one. HA HA. WELCOME

Mr_Consistent

Cheers Fellas!!!

Dee

Cheap as chips at the moment… Could be a good POD! It's either him or Griffen at the moment for the bulldogs and Boyd bloody 100K cheaper! Hmmm…. Something to give serious thought on mate…. Nice one!

@remy_brown

Hi Jock, do you think I should bank Buddy's 124 or wait for GAJ to play and use him as the captain?

hayden

Gazza

Top_Cotch

Pretty happy with 321 from 3. Mr Burgoyne a little disappointing with only 65 though. Have 20 "warm bodies" on the park which seems about standard checking across my league games.

Due to the fact that I quite like a theory and I love looking ahead I would like any opinions on this one. Noticing how the byes have affected things this year I can see that perhaps (if the choice allows) mid priced/rookie players with Round 13 byes may be good targets for SC 2014. Cachia, O'Meara, Dwyer and to a lesser extent Brad Crouch, Nicholls and Sumner all playing through the early byes then presenting themselves promptly for slaughter this Monday may seem like winning moves.

hayden

I am thinking keeping Murphy untill after is bye and the upgrade to swan, does anyone no when he will return because i will trade viney for Murphy when he is 450.000

hayden

I need big games from my richmond trio Cotchin dusty and lids.
also Does anyone think droping jacobs for nichols was a bad idea

Pete

Dear lord

Traded in Jordan Lewis (silly FWD tagging role last night) over Dustin Martin

FFS!

hayden

silly silly silly, dusty is a gun

Dee

Agree!

footyinme

857 from 7 players jock

Michael

pleased with Ellis / Vlastuin combo today, although Vlastuin slightly down Ellis more than made up for it! What a great couple of buys! Sitting on 659/6, Rocky / Hanley / Staker next in play for me. Still on track for 2000.

FrontPocket

724 from 8 after the Tigers v Crows game. A. Walker, N. Vlastuin, and S. Jacobs failed to reach the ton. Gibbs and Dusty impressive. Should have 20 warm bodies on the field, 4 ultra-premium mids.

The sad news is that I've been burning through trades. 8 left. 2 planned next week and then my side is set, barring injuries. Not ideal, lots of games left, just hoping for my stars to remain uninjured for the rest of the season (but now I've gone and said that… I don't have Murphy though, feel for him).

Bob

Can't really complain about Walkers score, only 8 off the ton

FrontPocket

Yeah, the wording was a bit tough. Jacobs' score was good given his form, and Vlastuin's 79 I'm happy with given I picked him up at the rookie price.

Zorko a bit disappointing again, and Hanley's and Rockcliff's numbers close to but just down on projections. Looks as if Brisbane didn't give much of a yelp over in the West.

Hayden

do you need a scoring player on the bench for the loophole to work

Chris

I'm confused and need help
So I have garza as vice captain and swan as captain and also have 20 players playing.
If I change my captain to say, hanneberry who has the bye. Will I get gazzas vc score doubled?

FrontPocket

I think that's the case. I'm pulling that manoeuvre to take Watson's 130. Don't ask me why I don't have Ablett as Captain (it was a bad strategic decision I made earlier in the year).

Justin

YES, i'm in the same boat and did this last week, this week i've got ablett as VC and Pendles as Capt, but will move the big C onto Josh Kennedy so ablett gets doubled

Chris

Ahh, so i will get ablets 300 haha..

throttlefinger

Make sure that Josh is part of your top 18. Don't think you can use loop if all 18 have scored. Believe one of the 18 has to be a zero for you to use VC loop.

Craig

Nope. I had 18 play last week and the loophole worked.

throttlefinger

Ah. Shit. Thanks.

macareec

This is ridiculous! Heppell scores 122 in dt and then only 90 in sc! Goddard gets 153 in dt and then only 129 in sc (still pretty good though) Luckily i am on track for a league win and a decent score this week

Luke

Are you allowed to do the captain loophole with someone who has the bye?

Favalinko

YES did it last week but i had bye player on field not sure if on the bench

Balls

Can't do it with anyone on the bench.

Sloan

Balls, that's what I'm hoping. If one of the 18 isn't a zero, can't use loop.

footyinme

Looking good so far 1754 from 15 Gaz my captain and could score 2200. Have 2 low scores of 53 and 49. Pendlebury, Swan, Minson, Macaffer and Kennedy to go hope that Macaffer and Kennedy score over 60 each to replace my 53 and 49.

Dee

1494 15 played, Gazza as Captain! Including scores of Crozier 20, Staker 53, Rowe 55 and a disappointing Duffield with 71! Ah well….. Playing Crawfs Crew who is on 1187 13 played with his captain Griffen still to come! I still got Hartlett, Shaw, Minson, Pendlebury, Macaffer and hoping for a late in with Hrovat! The graph shows I should just get across the line…. But I don't trust the bloody thing tho!

Dee

Hoping that Griffen gets below 100 against the pies, get tagged hard by Macaffer. A score of 60 maybe…. LOL. So his price tag plummets and I'll be able to get him next week…

Jordan

Have 19 on field, have 1596 after 14 played
Still have, Minson, Hrovat, Macaffer, K.Martin and Goodes.. Best 4 will count.
Should get a decent score!

Rocksta

Projected to get 1970 odd, thanks to using the Captains loophole on Danger this week.
Should win my match by 300 odd, making it 2 from 2 in the bye rounds ( only 3 trades used).
Only intend to make 1 trade next week to give me 17 warm bodies and I think that will get me over the line with next weeks opponent. Thus hopefully 3 from 3 with 4 trades used – That said, I'm sure the Supercoach Gods will throw a spanner in the works some how

Osh

1756. 16 played. That included disappointing scores from Duffield, Fyfe, Zorko and Staker but good scores from Gibbs, Franklin, Watson, Ablett and Goddard. Overall looking at maybe 2000 plus with Pendles, swan, B. Goodes, Mcaffer and Kennedy to come.

throttlefinger

Every time I pick someone up, they seem to shat their pants as welcome aboard gift.

Looking for better results out of you next week, Jordan Lewis!

throttlefinger

But Mundy….oh Mundy. You are glorious!

Hooker did better than I thought. Zorko…are you looking for someone to write a ballad about you? Looking at 1826. Think Swan and Martin will pile on against the Dogs.

Genco

So glad i picked up kreuzer three weeks ago. My ruckman are now Goldstein, kreuzer, nicholls and currie!

lach

Hey jock, I need to trade out terlich to a player who is playing today, I have 150k in the bank. I'm only doing this because if I don't I will loose this wk. it's a very close game. Any suggestions?

@tommyellis89

Take a look at:
– Hamish Hartlett
– Heath Shaw

– Harry O'Brien (If you are REALLY starving)

Lach

Thanks Tommy, got hartlett in, already have shaw. Fingers crossed he pumps out a massive SC score this wk and gets me over the line. Sitting on 1775 with peddles, mccaffer, shaw and now hartlett to go.
Cheers

@tommyellis89

97! You'd be content with that result from him. 🙂

Lach

2097 mate got over the line by 13 pts, thanks for ur imput

Lach

Input

Remy

Looking great on 1773 with Pendles, Swanny, B. Goodes, Macaffer and Neade to come. Hopefully I can get over 2150 with big scores from Pendles and Swanny.

John

1567 with 6 players left to play this week so should come up pretty good. Next week is probably going to be a tanking week as I only have 9 trades left and lots of round 13 bye players. Team is only about 3-4 trades away from being set so feel I am in a pretty good position. Also pretty well cemented in finals in all my leagues so can afford to drop a few games in latter half of the season if my low amount of trades come back to bite me and I have to cop a few donuts.

Daniel

One of the victims of Marc Murphy and docherty which have let me down and do use the captain loophole or do I have swan/pendlebury as my captain?

John

who did you have the VC on? if Ablett then take the points for sure. anything could happen today with the others they might get knocked out in first 5 minutes.

Weaves

Currently sitting on 1821 with Swan, K. Martin, Macaffer and Hrovat (if he's a late inclusion) to play. Looking good for a 2000+ score this week.

James

Have 1347 from 14 with 3 scores under 100 and 3 doughnuts looking pretty good this week want about 1900

Deanbartel

1614 from 14 players

aaron

looking to score 2000

aaron

gws are playing shocking thought they would give port a run for there money
