Your Supercoach MobHere we are folks – the second last weekend of the regular fantasy footy season.

Striving for a spot in the top 8? Trying to get your mob wedged up in the top 4 to get the double chance? Looking to better your previous personal best overall rank? Whatever you’re up to I wish you all the very best this weekend.

Lets get this weekends discussion cranking right up – what’s on your mind this weekend and how are you travelling?


Rocksta · 27/07/2013 at 09:23

Going the Captains loophole with the V on Ablett, and the C on Pendles..
Will have to make sure though I don't get side tracked if Ablett scores really well as will have about 30 minutes between games to Take the C off Pendles and put it on a non playing player ( Hanley with the E on Docherty).
Also, really happy I was still able to keep Daniher on the bench. He scored 13.

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 11:09

    Doing similar VC on Ablett to Stevie J if Abby get's the Carrots lock down.

    Richard · 27/07/2013 at 16:26

    Same. Should I keep Ablett's score?

      The Old Dylan · 28/07/2013 at 18:42

      Hope you did…

Rocksta · 27/07/2013 at 09:25

Hope the community didn't get tempted into trading Franklin. Last night shows why he will be such a valuable player in your team come finals.
He'll start churning out the 120 pluses soon enough.

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 11:06

    Have had the Big Budwalla all year. Was tempted to give him the highland fling several times. Was scared the moment i did he would go into wrecking mod. Though he got burnt on the points last night should of been 140-150 .

      Rocksta · 27/07/2013 at 11:17

      I agree.
      How can you kick 8 and score 119.
      What's with that?

        David · 27/07/2013 at 11:26

        Think he only had 1 contested possession, usually has a few more, would've got him to the 130-140 mark

        Devilz · 29/07/2013 at 15:46

        Pretty silly, he clearly won them the game, should of got 150 – 180, glad he didn't cos his no longer in my team lol

    ShinbonerSpirit · 27/07/2013 at 11:14

    Haven't had him all season, and I wouldn't change it for the world.

      Rocksta · 27/07/2013 at 11:21

      You may live to regret that Shinboner come SC Finals.
      I reckon Buddy has just started warming up for the AFL finals proper which means big scores for the SC finals.
      I've been on all year and am staying on the Buddy Train

        Remy · 28/07/2013 at 19:43

        Hawthorn's run coming up includes Richmond, St Kilda, Collingwood, Kangaroos and Swans. Buddy's record against Collingwood, Kangaroos and Swans is very good…. I reckon We can expect some huge scores from Buddy in the SC finals.

      Balls · 28/07/2013 at 01:02

      Me too!

        Balls · 28/07/2013 at 01:04

        That is no BF and don't want him – the contested ball count backs up the reported injury.

    Devilz · 29/07/2013 at 15:44

    I got Buddy in at round 9 and was disappointed in his inconsistency so I got him out after round 15 for Goldstein so can't complain yet haha. I am tempted to get him back but I got Cyril last week so at this stage Im happy to go without him and play Cyril Vs Buddy in Finals. I have 6 trades left, top 4 in all leagues, so i can afford to waste some… way to easy with 30 trades, all things to plan and will have 2 prems on the bench for finals coverage

Rocksta · 27/07/2013 at 09:33

I reckon Cyril will be ripe for the picking come finals.
His movement and skill was magnificent last night, and he tonned up so soon after his return from a lengthy lay off.

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 10:57

    I am hearing you Rocksta, he is about to rip it apart and his Price as Bruce would say is Delicious.

    jockreynolds · 27/07/2013 at 11:43

    He looked magnificent last night lads didnt he. No doubting his scoring potential but just cant shake the injury risk factor. He was off after a knock last night for a few minutes but pulled up alright

Rocksta · 27/07/2013 at 09:44

Further to our discussions in 'Burman Poll' a couple of days ago, I reckon it's 'CYRIL TIME'

    big fella · 27/07/2013 at 12:42

    Yes I'm not happy with myself, brought in Dusty Martin instead of Cyril in the end… Hope it doesn't come back to bite me

David · 27/07/2013 at 10:29

We talk about Barlow being a prime option because of his finals run…… do you think Ross will rest him though?

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 10:59

    I think it will come down to if Freo are fighting for a top 4 position. I don't think he will rest players if it means the extra percentage to make it there.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 27/07/2013 at 11:15

    Not with the way the top 4 battle is panning out.

David · 27/07/2013 at 10:38

Talking to Rocksta previously about what score from Gaz to settle with and not switch to Pendles or Swan? Rocksta reckons 135+ any other suggestions?

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 11:03

    As a rule of thumb anything over 130 is a keeper. GWS seem to lock down on a few players and they struggle. With Beams, Swan & Pendles one will cop the tag big time.

    micki S · 29/07/2013 at 15:33

    127+ is what I reckon

BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 11:14

Loving Buddy Boy, he turned the clock back three years. Hoping the big chap can kick on from here and waves too the people that gave him the Asssssss. Looking great so far Jock, how is the Brumby traveling ??

Rocksta · 27/07/2013 at 11:24

The Buddy Train is at the station!

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 11:36

    He is the Express Train. Ticket's please queue to the right who have him and please queue to the left if you had him and flicked him.

David · 27/07/2013 at 11:27

If Gaz doesn't cut it, should I use loophole on Pendles, Swan or Stevie J?

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 11:30

    All good choices. i have Gaz to Stevie J. Stevie J always hits the points after missing games.

    jockreynolds · 27/07/2013 at 11:44

    Pendles is the man for me Rock

      David · 27/07/2013 at 11:50

      Jock, how are you not the top rated commenter? It's your site!!

James · 27/07/2013 at 11:52

Why is Ryder playing forward. He is much more damaging with his taps and gets more of them while his work in the forward line is pretty average. Bellchambers sis much more dangerous up forward and has kicked a 5 goal bag. I know they are swapping but why are they giving the number one ruck role to Bellchambers

jack · 27/07/2013 at 13:11

Gday everyone. Im doing ok in the old supercoach coming 576 overall and was just wondering if i could have some advice. Should i go Hrovat to Barlow (which would put tom mitchell to M9) this week to have 2 trades left and 47k in bank or wait until next week with barlows 144 breakeven? cheers

    BestCoastEagles · 27/07/2013 at 13:47

    HOLD !

      jack · 27/07/2013 at 16:03

      Why? improves my team

    Mr_Consistent · 27/07/2013 at 19:23

    Yeah I don't see how a one word answer helps you Jack. I think you should pick up Barlow mate. He could very well score 144 and even if he doesn't he probably won't go down much anyway. If your ranked that high you need to take risks to get ahead, Barlow is an excellent choice!

      Jack · 28/07/2013 at 20:31

      Thanks a lot mate! Followed your advice!

Sully321 · 27/07/2013 at 15:05

Pendles or Stevie j for captain if ablett doesn't score enough?

and what is a good enough score to keep gaz as captain?

    James · 27/07/2013 at 15:21

    I am putting the C on Pendles if Ablett scores under 130.

James · 27/07/2013 at 15:20

Tom Nicholls subbed off with right knee problem.

Sully321 · 27/07/2013 at 15:21

Tom Nicholls subbed out nooooooo!!!!!! Only 32 points

jockreynolds · 27/07/2013 at 15:25

Nicholls gone! Disaster

Dan · 27/07/2013 at 15:48

pendles stevie or swan for captain?

    Sully321 · 27/07/2013 at 16:00

    I reckon Pendles

Sully321 · 27/07/2013 at 16:20

Ablett 121 putting the big C on Pendles now to score more than that

    James · 27/07/2013 at 16:21

    My strategy was to put the C on Pendles if Ablett scored under 121 so I am going through with it.

James · 27/07/2013 at 16:20

Ablett 121.

Who's putting the C on Pendles, Stevie J or someone else?

    Sully321 · 27/07/2013 at 16:24

    C on pendles

      medadsson · 27/07/2013 at 16:40

      Hard choice, Stevie J is a fantasy flat track bully of the highest order. I am going Pendles as he seems like a better bloke … no logic I know.

Osh · 27/07/2013 at 16:21

Should I bank in Abletts score or go with Pendles and should I go with Jaegers score or go with Tom Mitchell???

    James · 27/07/2013 at 16:25

    Go to Pendles.

    Sully321 · 27/07/2013 at 16:26

    IMO go with Pendles and take jaegers 93 over Tom Mitchell

big fella · 27/07/2013 at 16:27

Gonna get the win either way, so taking the risk and putting the C on Selwood to outscore Gaz

ShinbonerSpirit · 27/07/2013 at 16:41

And again, Cannon scores well with very few touches of the ball. Got to love his disposal efficiency!

Bob · 27/07/2013 at 16:43

Gaz only scored 116 definitely putting the C on Pendles!

James · 27/07/2013 at 17:02

Pies & Pendles quiet so far.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 27/07/2013 at 17:06

    Yep, gone with Swan as captain though, so I don't mind too much. Pendlebury was always going to receive the first tag and GWS can really shut down a player.

James · 27/07/2013 at 17:13

Swan 43, Pendlebury 18 at 1/4 time.

Pendles will pick it up!

James · 27/07/2013 at 17:16

Andrew Swallow ruptures his achilles – out for the season.

ShinbonerSpirit · 27/07/2013 at 19:18

Dane Swan, you beautiful creature.

Mr_Consistent · 27/07/2013 at 19:26

I feel sorry for all the people that loopholed Pendles for Ablett…

James · 27/07/2013 at 20:21

Dawson Simpson dislocated kneecap.

Just traded him in this round!

James · 27/07/2013 at 21:55

Jock, I didn't listen to you and brought in ibbotson 5-6 weeks back. Is it worth trading him out for Mckenzie ect. My defence is Gibbs, Goddard, Hartlett, ibbotson, Heppel, and (sun of a gun) Dixon. Only got 3 trades left, I'm thinking hold but I can't keep copping these 60-70 scores he is posting. Do you think he will get back on the horse or continue to fall away.

    James · 27/07/2013 at 22:26

    Equall lowest inside fifty's from Adelaide could have had an impact on ibbotson s scoring. I didn't watch the match, any sports.

      ShinbonerSpirit · 27/07/2013 at 22:51

      Nah mate, Duff got his hands on the pill about 20 times (excluding kick-ins) from the same position. Ibbo was too busy being a potato.

        James · 28/07/2013 at 08:52

        Do you reckon duffeilds inclusion has changed the role he has been playing. What do you think ibbotson will average for the remainder if the year.

          ShinbonerSpirit · 28/07/2013 at 09:54

          I'm not sure. Now Freo have more outlets out of defence and don't have to rely solely on Ibbo anymore. The return of McPharlin could see Ibbotson handed a bit more freedom. I can see him averaging 85-90 from here.

ShinbonerSpirit · 27/07/2013 at 22:41

Ricky Henderson excellent on debut for The Benchwarmers despite a De Boer tag. And Duffield showed flashes of his old self. Should rip it up in the finals. SJ's 120 was unexpected, and Selwood continues his fine form. All in all, a pretty good Saturday night.

Eagler · 27/07/2013 at 23:31

Go Swan!!! 1961 with 6 to play. I’m no where near the leaders but should smash my PB.

    Rocksta · 28/07/2013 at 03:19

    Looks like you're going to get a ripper score there Eagler.
    Well done.
    I've got Swanny and Ablett but put the C on Pendles. Oh we'll, better luck next week.

      Eagler · 28/07/2013 at 18:36

      Cheers Rocksta. Finally had a big score. I stuffed up with Pendles last week. Wasn’t keen on it twice in a row.

JB · 28/07/2013 at 00:03

Par score this round 2,200?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 28/07/2013 at 09:59

    I could be completely off, but I think around 2200-2250.

Rocksta · 28/07/2013 at 01:37

What's going to happen with Essendon and its players?
Thought they were going to be cleared but the events of the past couple of days has got me doubting again.
Hold all trading?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 28/07/2013 at 09:59

    The investigation could be drawn out until next year if necessary. In any case, I think worst case scenario is that Essendon aren't allowed to play in September, and that doesn't affect SC.

throttlefinger · 28/07/2013 at 02:13

Bartel, Goodes, Hanley and Terlich. No coverage. Nicholls subbed out. But looped Swanny so still have a fighting chance for the W. As every week…victory depends on Zorko going big or bust.

Rocksta · 28/07/2013 at 03:30

Beamer ripped it up again this week. He will make a great in for those with trades and limited damage.
I unfortunately have too many injury concerns and not enough trades to bring him in.
Great for those whom can though

Darren · 28/07/2013 at 07:20

Someone earlier mentioned this

“IMO take jaegers 93 over Tom Mitchell”

What do u mean by that exactly?


    Rocksta · 28/07/2013 at 09:52

    Hi Darren.
    They are referring to ' the emergency loophole'
    It means they currently have Jaegar on the bench with the 'E' on him, and Tom Mitchell on the field.
    They want to now take Jaegars score by putting Tom Mitchell on the bench as the non emergency. However, to do this you will need a non starting player on your field.
    So, to make this work, your second bench player must be somebody whom isn't playing this round and whoms team hasn't played yet. You then simply swap that player with Tom Mitchell on the field, in which case Jaegars score will apply once that non starters team game is over.
    You could also substitute non starting DPP's from your forward line or back line.

    That person was referring to a post that I answered for him earlier this week. I told him to put Jimmy Bartell ( non starter this week) on the field, with Jaegar and Tom Mitchell on the bench with Jaegar as the emergency. He can now just simply leave it as it.
    Hope this makes sense.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 28/07/2013 at 09:57

    I'm assuming Osh (the OP) was going to use some sort of midfield loophole, similar to the captain loophole, using Jaeger and Titch. If he wasn't happy with JOM's score, he was able to take Titch's score today instead.

      Osh · 28/07/2013 at 21:30

      That's exactly what I did guys and got an extra 20 which won me my league!!!!

    James · 28/07/2013 at 10:54

    Sub in Dangerfield (or other non playing player who has not played) for Mitchell. Assuming they have o meara as emergency, they will get his score because there is a zero on the field.

James · 28/07/2013 at 08:45

Do you think Ricky Henderson is going to do an ibbotson?

    James · 28/07/2013 at 08:46

    And drop off

    ShinbonerSpirit · 28/07/2013 at 10:36

    Always a possibility. But I'm pretty confident of him maintaining his form until the end of the season (not sure what a Dangerfield return might do for him). Remember, he scored 110 on a De Boer tag against the best defensive team in the AFL.

Joel · 28/07/2013 at 09:54

Wow. What a disaster of a week for me, despite having good bench cover ill have a few zeros and bad scores! I have had this week.

Bartel, goodes, Hanley, riewolt, Nichols, swallow.
Didn't keep ablets vc score and went pendles over swan and Selwood.
Still have jobe Watson on the bench as a good POD come finals but may regret this with what has happened this week!

Still have 6 trades which is good though!

    Joel · 28/07/2013 at 09:56

    Also had danihers score for Riewolt
    Clisbys score for goodes
    Colquhon for Hanley
    Nichols I had on field
    Swallow I had on field
    Mitchell for Bartel

    Somehow still predicted 2300

Dylan · 28/07/2013 at 11:10

Upgrade T.mitchell??

Options are
T/u redden
T/d hannerbry

Only have 80k in bank and need to win this week, it will hopefully push me over the line with one more p.o.d

Jacko · 28/07/2013 at 11:57

Master Jock and Supercoach community, I come to u in desperate need of help. I have decided to use my very last trade in order to get over my arch nemesis Unbeatables who currently has a 3 point projected lead. I need a defender to replace Hanley and take Clisby's spot in the side. WHO IS THE BEST REMAINING DEFENDER???
I'm Thinking Bob Murphy or Jed Adcock. Please help me out.

    big fella · 28/07/2013 at 12:03

    Murphy for mine today, although Adcock could average higher for the rest of the season now that Hanley is out…a very close call

    Rocksta · 28/07/2013 at 12:35

    I'm assuming you've already got Malceski Jacko?
    Houli is also now a couple of weeks back from injury and can churn out some big scores.
    I'd go Malceski if you don't have him

UnBeatables 2.0 · 28/07/2013 at 12:15

Arch nemesis Jacko?? Lol I like bob murphy mate, I looked at him for a while.. Give him a crack.. It might get you over the line

    Jacko · 28/07/2013 at 12:29

    U are a class act Mr Unbeatable hahaah

Jason · 28/07/2013 at 12:39

Just like to pay tribute to Matty Kreuzer. Picked him up at a steal and in his last 6 rounds has scored 111, 111, 136, 107, 139 & 140.

Is still only owned by 8.27% of teams

Definitely choosing him as an elite ruck next year.

UnBeatables 2.0 · 28/07/2013 at 12:46

Jacko have you taken into account it says I have had 12 play but Mitchell’s score hasn’t gone on for danger yet..

    Jacko · 28/07/2013 at 12:51

    That hurts mate. I thought it had counted that. Good luck against Moodle Magicians and Bomberblitz mate that is depressing.

UnBeatables 2.0 · 28/07/2013 at 12:55

Lol cheers Jacko.. Don’t rule yourself out this week yet.. The Supercoach gods always have tricks up their sleeves!!

    Jacko · 28/07/2013 at 19:49

    Dear Mr Unbeatables,
    Good Game mate

Yappa's Allstars · 28/07/2013 at 13:35

I don't have to many trades, 4. Not much, do you you reckon I should hold onto Hanley or give him the flick? I have Staker filling in for him. I might just see how he goes today, in good form all up though.

ShinbonerSpirit · 28/07/2013 at 14:56

And there it is. I can never seem to back up a great Saturday with a decent Sunday.

Eagler · 28/07/2013 at 18:31

Just need Martin to score 101+ to crack 2500. I’ve already hit my PB.

ShinbonerSpirit · 28/07/2013 at 20:05

2428. Can't wait to have Danger back.

Rocksta · 28/07/2013 at 21:15

Even though I won in my league again this week and am now guaranteed top 3, it's been a shocking week for my anticipated finals team bench.
Vossy made Docherty the sub yet again, even though he was named on the field ( What's with that guy?). I'll have to look at trading him first week of finals as simply cannot count on his Job security.
Nicholls, whom I had intended to leave as my R3 for the rest of the season ( R2 via loophole if he scored well) is injured. Even though they reckon only 2 weeks I can't see how you can keep a $400K player with a suspect knee on the bench.
Mayes and Danaher stunk it up ( my forward line Bench).
I also had Watson and Hanley and thus am worried about their return.
With 2 trades left and my now suspect bench, I simply do not know what to do.
I can only think of trading Nicholls and Docherty out for Heater and McBean ( I have Cox in the Forward line) first week of finals.
This will insure I have a full premium side when Watson and Hanley return. I will have T.Mitchell and Staker as D6 and M8 in the interim.
Thoughts/suggestions anyone?

    Rocksta · 28/07/2013 at 21:24

    Sorry, forgot to mention that if I make the trade above, I will end up with Staker on the Def bench, Mitchell and Hrovat on the mid bench, no cover on my Ruck bench but a DPP McBean to sub Cox from the Forward line if required, and Mayes and Daniher on the FWD line bench.
    With right Captain, my team should score between 2400 – 2500 ( I've been scoring mid 2400s with 2 premiums on the bench recently)
    Thoughts anyone?

Chris · 28/07/2013 at 22:45

Thoughts on Chris Yarran? Recent scores of 75, 80.. Looks as if he is finding form..

I have Nichols and swallow to trade out this week, I thought that I'd get more points by getting Goldstein because Jacobs is doing terrible, and then putting colquhon into my midfield and buying Yarran into d6/7 and then can be back up when Hanley comes back

Trevor · 30/07/2013 at 18:35

Guys please let me now your thought on this….
Last round a person in my league was 9th n they played some1 that wasn't going to ,are finals and they put most of their premiums on the bench. The person now is in the 8th???
