Show us your team v2.0 here

Supercoach Gold team picker has opened and the preseason is on like Donkey Kong!

Mick The Mad Irishman and Barron Von Crow have had a crack at their first teams of the preseason, have a gander below:

Now I cant figure out if Mick is just taking the piss here by selecting bloody Shaun Higgins in his first team or not, but I nearly fell of my chair when I saw him slotted into the forward line.

What are your thoughts about Mick and Bazza’s teams? Would love to see some teams below – lets get stuck right in

Geez Mick – no GAJ or Pendles…. You are gonna spend an hour each week trying to decide who to put the C and VC on!!

Bock, Murphy, Beams, Thomas, Turf Toe all locks at those prices.

What about HMac?

BTW – I don’t have SC Gold – any chance someone can rip out the prices and post?

Keep up the good work gentlemen!

Hi Jock and Community

I'd love to hear your feedback on structure in particular. If going guns and w/rookies this year, how many premiums would you be aiming for in each line?

Walker, McVeigh, Hanley (Langdon)
Sucling, Kolodashnij, L McDonald (Fuller)

Ablett, Pendles, Rockliff, D Beams (Polec)
Gaff, D Thomas, J Martin, Aish (X Ellis)

NicNat, Sandilands (Currie, M King)

Dangerfield, D Martin, Dixon (D Garlett)
Fasolo, Bock, Kersten (Honeychurch)

throttlefinger

Very, very rough. Rookies and wookies are wait and see. Like mids. Need work on Fwds.

Thoughts?

DEF: A. Walker, G. Birchall, B. Houli, R. Shaw, S. Docherty, K. Kolodjashnij (M. Scharenberg, J. Battersby)
MID: S. Pendlebury, T. Liberatore, M. Murphy, D. Beams, L. Greenwood, D. Thomas, J. Martin, J. Aish (C. Beams, M. Crouch)
RUC: N. Naitanui, B. Grundy (B. Longer, A. Smith)
FWD: D. Martin, D. Zorko, P. Chapman, J. Hogan, R. Nahas, K. Harper (D. Garlett, S. Kersten)

lostlarrikin

Looks like a pretty solid team throttle,
Some interesting North selections in Greenwood, Harper and Nahas.
I reckon Greenwood might struggle for mid time with Cunnington, Bastinac, Ziebell, Wells, Gibson and Dal Santo all in the mix (and Swallow to return from injury).
Surprised that Harper is still with the club, not fantasy relevant for mine.
Nahas could be a good cow if he can stay fit

Max

Excellent points, Lost. Leaning towards Bastinac. But in truth, rethought lineup. Keep to a few key elites then fill with undervalues and choice rooks. Plus have DPP coverage. Like this structure. Just need to work out options for rooks and wookies.

DEF A. Walker, R. Henderson, J. Grimes, A. Mullett, K. Kolodjashnij, M. Scharenberg (J. Battersby, D. Gardiner)
MID: S. Pendlebury, J. Selwood, A. Treloar, D. Beams, B. Ellis, J. Martin, C. Beams, X. Ellis (D. Garlett, J. Hunt)
RUC: M. Lobbe, A. Sandilands (B. Longer, M. Apeness)
FWD: P. Dangerfield, C. Wingard, T. Mitchell, P. Chapman, J. Hogan, A. Fasolo (C. McCarthy, F. Thurlow)

throttlefinger

Signed in from mobile. "Max" is me. Again, appreciate your brain on this, Lost.

lostlarrikin

Again looks pretty solid on paper.
Question marks for me on the likes of Grimes and Mullett as to where they play and therefore output.
Good to throw this stuff out there at this time of yr as there might be some hardcore fans out there that can shed some light on where players are expected to spend most of their time.

Treloar could be inspired move with a stronger Giant ruck arsenal and Adams out of the picture. Beware the underperforming Greene and Coniglio who could steal points.

William McEntee

DEFENCE- Mitchell, Bartel, Hanley, Suckling Scharenberg, K Kolodjashnij (Fuller, Langdon)
MIDFIELD- Ablett, Pendelbury, Griffen, Selwood, Swan, J Martin, McDonald, O’Rourke, (Morabito, Crouch)
RUCK- Grundy, Longer (Currie, Lobb)
FOWARD- Dangerfield, Martin, Roughead, Bock,Hogan Honeychurch ( Taylor , Garlett)
$27 000 in the bank.

Shooter

Awesome team Bill!

Dan

I don't have gold so I'm unsure about salary because I don't have sc gold so if someone could pop it in for me it would really help me out! but I would be looking at these blokes in my team…

Def: S.Mitchell, P.Hanley, S.Thompson, J.Grimes, M.Suckling, L.McDonald (J.Tippett, M.Fuller)
Mid: S.Pendlebury, J,Selwood, T.Rockliff, H.Bennell, D.Beams, D.Tyson, J.Martin, J.Aish (C.Beams, M.Crouch)
Ruc: A.Sandilands, B.Grundy (D.Currie, T. Nankervis)
Fwd: P.Dangerfield, D.Martin, L.Franklin, T.Walker, J. Hogan, D.Garlett (L.Taylor, M.Honeychurch)

William McEntee

Sorry I put it in it doesn't work your $60 000 short. I suggest not getting Tex Walker in straight away because Adelaide aren't going to rush him back.

Dan

Thanks mate, you're an absolute gem… Out of interest is Mitch Clark 60k less than Walker? If so he'd probably replace Walker… Boyd is around abouts aswell

William McEntee

So close, only 50 for Clark. Boyd is fine though.

Shawnied

Defenders
Jarrad McVeigh, Sam Mitchell, Pearce Hanley, Matt Suckling,

Max

Defence is very strong, but alex johnson on the pine takes up too much cash.. probably trade him or docherty out and bring in a player less than 150k.
Mifield lacks uber premium like pendlebury selwood ablett… it is a must that you start with atleast one of those 3…
The rucks will be hard next year, just keeping in mind the interchange limits, ruckman like mcintosh and grundy may get subbed off with j.white or n.vardy taking over the duties. Mind you McIntosh may not be subbed of so therefore is a brilliant pick!
Need to ask these questions in your forward line, will wingard back up his stellar year? Will crameri, bock and menzel stay fit? If both these questions are answered yes it is a very good forward line and a solid team! Maybe look into the mids more

James

Backs: Bartel, J. Mcveigh, S Mitchell, M Suckling, M. Scharenberg, J. Tippett, K. Aylett, T. Cutler

Thoughts would be appreciated

lostlarrikin

Hey James, Tex won't see game time early on.
I would try and find room for J Martin in middle.
I had forgotten about Daisy, definite money to be made there

fred

Is 220k to much for a rookie like Jack Martin?

jimbotraralgon

hey fred. martin no……Hogan.. as a key position player…maybe….

Brady

They Say he's better than O'Meara who was stellar last year so Yes.

lostlarrikin

Def – Bartel, McVeigh, Mitchell, Pearce, Suckling, Laidler (Thompson L, Tippett J)

Mid – Ablett, Fyfe, Libba, Dal Santo, Beams, Caddy, Martin (Crouch M, Hartung)

Ruc – Mumford, Longer (Apeness, Nankervis)

Fwd – Danger, Gunston, Dixon, Rohan, Wearden, Garlett D (Impey, Honeychurch)

Liking Laidler to make some coin and Caddy to get a fair run with no Corey and Chappy.

jimbotraralgon

laidler is a very interesting proposition….not yet for me but it wont take much to convince

throttlefinger

Strong start, Lostlarrikin. Like the Mummy pick, although Longer could be risky ar R2. Sandi could be a better pick…and if he goes down with a strained taint, Apeness and Longer can back up. Fwds might be a tad light and risky. But Rohan and Dixon could be a surprise. Caddy and Chappy are ones I keep going back and forth with, yet in my fwd line not mids. Maybe use X. Ellis or C. Beams or a rook that's likely to get time (Aish) so you can use Caddy/Chappy to strengthen the forward line for mine.

lostlarrikin

Yeah line ball between Longer and Grundy for me. Cant bring myself to take the risk on 211. Price is great but not sure how much game time he will see with Clarke, Griffin, Hannath and Apeness all on the roster. reckon he might be used lightly in 1st half of season.
Ellis and Beams will be watch and see as both returning from injury, tho will be hard to pass up if they line up in rnd 1.
Caddy up fwd sounds like a good move and might try and squeeze in Nahas too per ur 1st version.

jimbotraralgon

hey guys.

having problems with my supercoach gold access…its killing me not being able to put my side in.

Can someone help us out with a few prices?

Jared Polec

Max Wills

What position is langdon, havent herd much about the kid

Cheers

lostlarrikin

Not heard much either, he's a def/mid for the pies
Drafted at #65

jimbotraralgon

Langdon is just a place marker at the moment…price is about right….swingman….if I go down the grundy path instead of nicnat, Langdon might become KK.

Thanks Jock, glad to help

jimbotraralgon

not convinced on treloar….whats your thoughts? I would look at o'rouke as a bolter from GWS rather than treloar

fred

Would you guys consider Xavier Ellis at all? at 158k surely must be worth a look

jimbotraralgon

west coast have him in their starting 18 if fit
http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/new-west-co

Dan

Hi community,

Is Billy Longer a good pick or burn man?

jimbotraralgon

is he worth the coin at R3?

throttlefinger

That's the question I've been struggling with, Jimbo. I have Lobbe as R1, Sandiballs R2 and Longer as R3. Thinking he could be nice backup if Sandi goes down. Hope is the value of at least of 2 of those will go up so I can keep one and upgrade the other (shooting for Minson).

jimbotraralgon

I'm thinking yes at this stage….mainly due to the reduction in the ruck forward swingers this year. For me, R3 will need to be getting a game every week

Few notes:
-Rookies not based on much, just names I've heard thrown around
-Forward lines very weak, no names are really standing out to me at the moment, but would like another premo/mid pricer
-Would possibly like to get caddy in somehow
-Possibly like to get Grundy in for Sandi
-Unsure if Martin and Tyson are worth the $220K each
-No GAJ at this stage

Feedback would be great, cheers

Richard

Parker is your man in the forward line. Look at his numbers last year. All he lacked was consistency. Another pre season under his belt. He is going to be this years wingard

jimbotraralgon

hey fellas.

off the bat I'll admit that I am still $67k over budget….looking at nicnat to grundy at this stage…
also thinking maybe no gaz and going with joelwood or barlow (who could join the elite)

but still early thoughts…

d/ bartel, McVeigh, Mitchel, suckling, bock, McDonald, (scharenbery, Langdon)
m/ gaz, pendles, Watson, d beams, daisy, c beams, j polec,, martin, (morabito, aish)
r/ nicnat, sandi (longer, Mcbeam)
f/ Buddy, wingard, Dangerfield, paine, fasolo, kersten (rohan, Garlett)

great time of the year….cricket on the tv…couple of beers……takeaway fish and chips…..couple of potato cakes….predicting the supercoach future…..love it.

Benno

I'd look to downgrade longer, personally think he's too expensive for an R3. Don't have gold so I can't say if this is 100% correct, but I also think Bock and McBean a fwds only.

Gotta agree though jimbo, great time of year!

@rjc69

Longer is $279,100 on SC. L. Mc Bean is @ $123900 Bock $196900 both fwds.

Richard

Bock is only a forward.

Max

Hey Hugh,

I think that you should choose 1 of Scharenburg and McDonald and downgrade one to a rookie of less than 130 which frees up 60k and the same with Polec in the midfield freeing up another 30-40. Using this extra cash to strengthen your fwd line!

Some suggestions to look at
M.Fuller, J.Tippet, T.Cutler down back
M.Crouch, J.O'Rourke, C.Giles and P.Cripps in the mid field

Hugh G

Hey Max, really appreciate the input. I am very keen to get O’Rourke into the team and I am hoping he has a cracker pre-season. In regards to Scharenberg Vs McDonald, I would be more inclined to keep McDonald (huge Kangas fan, 2014 is gonna be a cracker for us I feel)

Max

That's fair enough, I'm a Collingwood fan and I honestly don't see Scharenberg cracking our 22 with the return of toovey and co… So maybe just play around and get those lower price rookies on your bench and find the premiums you like. I really like your team though and Jack Grimes in your defence is a cracker!

Hugh G

Appreciate it mate. Am a bit worried about Grimes with injury, but he is clearly underpriced.

Max

My thoughts on this year Jock… all feel free to agree and disagree as a community its important for all opinionsto be heard!

– Maybe not a year to starr with ablett and pendlebury… choose 1 and go with selwood and some of the cheaper options.
– Dangerfield should be owned by everyone no questions??
– ruckmen who will play games without getting the vest will be important. My thinking is look at teams with players like j.white and n.vardy which make mcintosh and grundy less valid picks perhaps.
– jack martin another must have!
– brisbane, north melbourne and melbourne are significant supercoach teams
-breakout contendors in the younger teams between 500-550k eg. Shuey, bennel, redden and treloar are all
players we could expect to average 105*
– with gws’ easy run and round 8 bye round make them significant because players such as treloar, sheils, cameron couls make easy cash to get abletts, pendleburys and barlows that we dont have.

Hi guys & gals,

Can't believe we're back into it – seems a bit wrong with the cricket on, but geez I've missed it!

First crack at my team, a bit more balls required this year methinks with the rookies as eksy as they are:

DEF: Bartel (DEF/MID), S Mitchell (DEF/MID), Hanley (DEF/MID), Suckling, K Kolodjashnij, Scharenberg, Laidler, Fuller
MID: Pendles, Cotchin, Wingard (MID/FWD), Beams, M Grigg, Daisy, J Martin, Aish, McDonald (MID/DEF), O'Rourke
RUC: Grundy, Sandy, Longer, B Brown (RUC/FWD)
FWD: Danger (FWD/MID), Dusty (FWD/MID), Dixon (FWD/RUC), Daniher, T Menzel, D Menzel, Kersten, D Garlett (FWD/MID)

Still a little unsure about Dan Menzel, if he has no injury concerns then all good, but that's a big if.
Also feel I'm 1 premo short in MIDS.
Early days though so many more permutations to go through!

Dale Turner

Reports from GFC saying Menzel won’t be available until mid season.

Robbo

G'day Mr Reynolds & Co,

What are your thoughts on D Wells this year? Will Dal Santo take much attention away from him? The Roos are tipped to be big improvers this year and I think Wells can sometimes be a forgotten man.

Would be good to hear the thoughts of the community.

All the best this year!

I'm wondering your thoughts on Rory Sloane please Jock as I was thinking he might be a bit of POD for the mids. What price?

Max

First Go for me this year im pretty happy with what i could fit in… as we know rookies not 100% right now. I practised the bye round system so when it comes to real season i know what im doing!

Def: Mitchell, Hanley, McKenzie, Grimes, Suckling, A.Johnson (D.Gardiner, M.Fuller)

Mid: Pendlebury, Rockliff, Fyfe, Beams, Thomas, J.Martin, Tyson, Aish (O’Rourke, Honeychurch)

Ruc: Naitnui, Sandilands (Currie, Nankervis)

Fwd: Dangerfield, Martin, Rioli, M.Clark, L.Taylor, Kersten (D.Garlett, Spina)

Not sure on either

Mitchel and McVeigh

A.Johnson and R.Shaw

Naitanui and Grundy /other premium

I have 10 players for each bye round

And $131,900 in the bank

@BarronVonCrow

Hi Max,

Like the Rockliff pick in the MIDS, reckon that's a solid choice if you can't go Ablett. Fyfe too is another one i'm gung-ho about for next year.

McVeigh or Mitchell is a tough one. May have to consider that this is the 1st out of 9 years McVeigh has cracked the 100 average, whereas Mitchell has 1 ouf of 9 years where he hasn't averaged 100 points or more.

Max

Cheers BVC or Baz? What do you preffer?

I like Rockliff because he averaged around like 120pts in his last 8 games where he played predominately midfield. As for Fyfe he had a low disposal efficiency so I think he can lift that which will lift his average points by around 8/9 Pts..

I will try and get Ablett in for Thomas in rd 9 when daisy has his bye…

Should I go r.shaw or a.johnson?

@BarronVonCrow

Either Baz of BVC is fine by me!

Yep, agree on both points on Rockliff and Fyfe. If Fyfe can get his DE% up from 63% to 69-70%, he'll be dangerous and should crack the 110 point barrier.

Tough one with Shaw and Johnson, my guts usually tell me to go with the younger player who has more scope for improvement, unlike Shaw, who's averaged in the 70's since 2010. I'm not 100% sure of where they are on their returns though, I read they're both on running programs during the Swans pre-season training, but i'm unsure if they'll be available for the start of the year.

Max

Thanks, I didn't know that. What are there injuries? Any suggestions that I can put on my watch list if they don't play?

@BarronVonCrow

Both suffered ACL tears, but both underwent the LARS procedure, so they should be good to go for Rd 1 as that has a quicker turnaround time than a standard knee reconstruction.

Samsy

Hey Guys! Loving the rookie changes, makes the game much more interesting. First go at my team

Def – Sam Mitchell [HAW], David Swallow [GCS], Jack Watts [MEL], Matt Suckling [HAW], Kade Kolodjashnij [GCS], Matthew Scharenberg [COL], (Luke McDonald [NTH], Tom Cutler [BRL])

Midfielders
Gary Ablett [GCS], Scott Pendlebury [COL], Joel Selwood [GEE], Marc Murphy [CAR], Dayne Beams [COL], Dale Thomas [CAR], Jack Martin [GCS], Claye Beams [BRL] (James Aish [BRL], Viv Michie [MEL])

Rucks
Nic Naitanui [WCE], Aaron Sandilands [FRE] (Daniel Currie [NTH], Max King [MEL])

Forwards
Patrick Dangerfield [ADE], Lance Franklin [SYD], Matthew Pavlich [FRE], Shaun Higgins [WBD], Nathan Bock [GCS], Gary Rohan [SYD], (Daniel Menzel [GEE], Dayle Garlett [HAW])

Cash – $100

Have to assess players coming off injuries during pre season, I like sandliands even if he plays 8 games, could be a good 'pinch hitter' to upgrade to another premium ruck.

@BarronVonCrow

Hi Samsy,

Nice looking starting team, even with the Burnman Higgins included!

I've seen a few with the same ideas on Sandilands. Hope he can get through the first 6-8 games of the year, if he can manage that, even if he does go down with an LTI he'd have made enough cash for you to be able to sideways trade him to another quality ruckman.

Samsy

The burnman higgins is very tempting with the price, only reason im considering him at this stage. also the increase in rookie prices make him less of a risk In my opinion

Very nice defence there Samsy, Swallow and Watts are a couple of nice potential breakout players but personally I would keep Swallow and get either McVeigh, Bartel, Hanley or Ricky Henderson for Jack Watts. Perfect midfield and on field rucks look fine, although you may need to change Max King or Currie for Nankervis probably. Not a big fan of the forward line but you could do a few tweaks with the midpricers, maybe change Matty Pavlich, Higgins and Menzel and I think it'll look great. Hope this helps a lot, great team mate. Thank you

Max

Just wondering About having 150k+ players on your bench is too much this year…? I'm thinking those lower priced rookies say 125-100k on your bench is better than having those guys at 160-220?

Cheers

Paul

Does anyone happen to know the prices of Fraser Thurlow (Ess) FWD/RUC and/or Eli Templeton (Stk) CTR?

Thanks in advance.

I really want D Thomas in but don’t know how to include him

And I just feel uneasy with 166k just sitting there

Great work jock with everything started getting more serious with

Supercoach this year being subpar with all my mates the years previous

Got told to get your stuff out and I smashed all my mates this year.

Keep up the good work

S Edwards is in Def aswell

Beached az

G'day fellas

Hoping for some feedback from attempt one this season!

Don't know too much about all the rookies yet so have gone with ones I think have a chance at round one at this stage. Actually quite enjoying the rookie premiums! Will separate the good SC'ers from the average Joes.

Anyway thoughts on my average Joe team would be appreciated!

Crouch may become Garlett if I decide I want to get a DPP link going, or if he looks more likely to play obviously. Quite like the look of the rest of it at the moment if I'm honest though.

lostlarrikin

Nice work Beached,
I like the left of centre approach in def by not buying into all the new prem dpps.
Gives scope to let suckling and Johnson develop while watching how the prem defs fare and then upgrade to the sure things

Thoughts on who will be saints no 1 ruckmen longer or hicky

@BarronVonCrow

If 2014 is like the 2nd half of the Saints season last year than they'll go in with both playing, which will restrict both their scores a bit, as Mick pointed out in his McEvoy turncoat article.

hey guys.

whats the weblink to the supercoach gold for 2014 please?

@rjc69

Just go into supercoach the usual way then click on the Supercoach gold only if you are a gold member.

Max

How much is Alan toovey?
Could he fill Heath shaws role?

Michael

My first real crack at 2014 team. Heavy on fwd/mids and def/mids, no mid/fwd or fwd/ruck. Couple of rookies will make way (i.e. Battersby, Dunstan maybe, the two fwds) but I am reasonably happy with my premiums. May give Daisy the boot depending how his ankle comes up.

Michael

Gah I have since gone and changed McIntosh to Minson, Dunstan to Langdon (a rookie def/mid). I had about $250k left over with the above listed team and I keep coming back to Minson. Thoughts please?

Nice team Kyle

Only thing i could suggest is trading hogan for S Kersten and banking extra 100k. Should be in best 22 and filling J Pods departure

Max

Thoughts on Mathew Wright Adelaide? Scoring reduced this year because of increased forward time to get some extra goals…? Previously averaged 89 this is his 4th season!

WEEVZ

I have no idea if this team is within budget as I was using the Fanfooty Fanplanner, but here goes…

DEF: J.McVeigh, A.Walker, P.Hanley, M.Suckling, K.Koladjashnij, M.Scharenberg, L.McDonald, M.Fuller.

MID: G.Ablett, P.Dangerfield, N.Fyfe, S.Mitchell, D.Beams, D.Thomas, J.Martin, J.Kelly, D.Tyson, C.Beams.

RUCK: A.Sandilands, B.Longer, M.Apeness, M.King.

FWD: C.Dixon, L.Franklin, C.Rioli, P.Chapman, T.Walker, J.Lamb, J.Hogan, S.Kersten.

Thoughts?

Hey Weevs

Solid on all lines, i do think there is a bit too much spent on the forward line, id look at upgrading longer to a premium. Natanui is juicy at his price or another premium not coming off injury.

Ben McEvoy, Brodie Grundy ( Toby Nankervis, Michael Apeness )

I am very happy with the team at the moment, I have Ben Brown and Michael Apeness who will rotate with DPP which is very handy aswell as Dayle Garlett in the midfield and Luke McDonald who will also use their DPP. My defence is steady enough IMO, my midfield will hold and I love the ruck. In the forward I've tried to get more mids in their instead of Roughead and KPF's. Any thoughts or feedback appreciated. Thanks.

very good team may I make some suggestions?

D.Menzel > J.Billings or J.Hogan.
C.Wood > T.Nankervis or T.Derickx

D.Menzel still recovering from his injury probably won't play till mid-year.

AJC

Thanks went menzel to billings but had to go leuey to Grundy but at least I have some left over cash now

LA5

Which 2 out of the three midfielders should I pick between G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury and J.Selwood?

Thanks for the advice.

Anyone else think Ducky's scoring will drop off a touch with the rule change re no more frees for head ducking?

SCMania

Hey guys, could I please have a couple more opinions on who to get out of Tom Mitchell and Lance Franklin. Cheers!

Slick Swans

As a swans fan i would say buddy for sure !!! tommy boy is still on a restricted training schedule atm, expect buddy to be the vocal point of sydneys attack,guaranteed scores over 100. Lock him in for round one and watch the fireworks !!

Max

if your looking for someone in that buy round then Dayne Zorko is also an option. 100 in his first year 2nd years blues held him at 85 this year but could see him returning to his 100?

out of those 2 though franklin is worth the 20k more but not sold on him… Will they go to tippet, reid and him evenly? what about goodes? Saying all this will average 90+ are there better options though?

LA5

If I have to decide between the two I would pick Franklin because he steps up in the big games and Tom Mitchell still taking a while to be full strength and possibility of second-year blues.

I hope my advice helps.

Hey Mitch
Good looking side, i think u are spending too much on your rookie selections. maybe trade one of the big 3 in the back line for mature ager M Fuller who should see plenty of game time.

I'd also invest in another super premium in the midfield (Gaz, Selwood, swan)

Wombats

Billings has already broken down, maybe look at Caddy. need another definite starter in def and a couple in mid. maybe swap one of your premiums for swallow and upgrade a rookie to a thurlow or watson. don't risk sandi in ruck unless you have Dixon or another ruck/fwd to cover for him when he breaks. Ben lennon will be the Nahas replacement at tiges and a much better kick than most. He will be at the feet of Riewaldt, Hampson, Vickery and is a bargain at $162k

Mitch

You should swap longer for sandilands

Osama

Guess that depends on NAB Cup. I'm still not 100% sold on his Turf Toe…

Wombats

Dixon is still in the rehab group

Wombats

That Dixon bloke has a healthy dose of wombat in him (can't knock him over, incredible agility for his shape, and blistering speed when it counts) but I reckon they might have stuffed him up by letting him play last year after the original injury. He's a big heavy bloke and ankles and feet have real small bones. Big fellas take a very long time to recover from feet and ankle injuries. If you doubt me just ask Robbie Warnock, and Sandi.

@noahcavanagh

which two would you pick out of rockliff, selwood, s.johnson, watson

James

Out of those four, I'd pick Selwood and Watson. Not convinced that either Rockliff or Stevie J are worthwhile at their starting prices without FWD eligibility.

Wombats

Selwood always starts slow, SJ is prone to missing a few of the first 10 and watson could yet be rubbed out by asada. Rockliff is looking good for a huge though.

Probably most concerned about the number of rookie defenders, as well as position M4 – This spot has been jumping back and forth between Dylan Shiel, Tom Mitchell and Dayne Zorko (depending on whether I need the additional cap space afforded by Shiel). Currently have approx $100K in the kitty.

@noahcavanagh

i would get rid of savage and get another midfield rookie maybe Jonathan O'Rourke at $123,900

James

Cheers for the feedback. I've ditched Savage for Shiel and put Honeychurch on the bench in place of Aish. I've also beefed up the backline a touch, swapping KK for Suckling (knowing full well that I can swap this back again to free up some funds if KK looks likely enough for a round 1 start).
Going to stick with Caddy, Rioli and Chappy for the moment. Reckon Caddy's every chance to step it up this year, and Rioli and Chappy should be able to score well above their starting prices if fit. If not fit, plenty of other players at similar prices that can be traded in.

Wombats

I'm not trying to psych you but, I reckon mcviegh is way overpriced; one 100+ season does not make a premium player I reckon he might burn a few coaches, look at his history he's been playing for 60 years and only gone 100+ for the season once! Don't replace him with Walker cos someone will work out that if you hit him he goes missing. Sandi? Really? Dixon and mitchell will be in the rehab groups until late January. if they play first game I reckon their time will be limited and no guarantee Dixon will comeback before week 3 or 4 so maybe rethink Sandi. I reckon Sylvia might be more of a chance than chappy (unless asada rub out bombers) or kamikaze kid who Mick seems to love. I like your rookie selections and I hope laidler gets a chance

Luke

Hey Noah

Nice looking team, very risky ruck. both have horrible injury history. Risk vs reward i guess

Solid midfield, ballsy move with no ablett to start. im too scared to do it myself after trying it last year and getting burnt big time

Rookies obviously dependent on round 1 selection

Solid forward line (if tex plays round 1) but im not sure he will be the dominant tex for the first half of the year after being out for so long. other then that solid side

SCMania

Another attemp of a nice team!

DEF: J. McVeigh, P. Hanley, D. Swallow, M. Suckling, K. Koladjashnij, M. Scharenberg ( L. McDonald, M. Fuller )

FWD: P. Dangerfield, D. Martin, C. Wingard, L. Franklin, J. Hogan, J. Billings ( N. Bock, L. Taylor )

What are your thoughts? Thanks.

Pieman

You have D Martin in your mid & Fwd

Dale Turner

He has J.Martin in Miss & D.Martin in fwds

Pieman

Can’t see Scharenberg playing early in the season. He is still doing rehab. And he hasn’t played or trained for quite some time. There are many players ahead oh him at the moment. He’s a long term prospect & they won’t run risks with him.

jimbotraralgon

gee nice looking side SCmania.

don't stress the rookies as yet, preseason will tell us about s-berg and the like.

like swallow up back……wait, what?

David Swallow is a good option but personally I felt I couldn't risk him with suckling….

great midfield and forward line.

don't like big boy up there……

Luke

Nice team SCM

I like Liberatore as a POD, i do think he is a risk however. Isn't a proven premium for more then 2 seasons, will get alot more attention this year.

Mcevoy a solid selection aswell, durable ruckman and change of team may help him breakout as top 3 ruck

Wingard same reasons as the LIBBA, maybe swap hogan for s kersten bank extra 100k (if makes best 22 which ive heard is very likely with j pods gone)

@noahcavanagh

get rid of jack hutchins and get K.K GCS

22andaHalfMen

Cheers mate what's the word on KK, cheaper and likely to be running off half back? Had heard good things about Hutchins I thought…

If Nic Nat has a good pre season I think he will be a better option than leuenberger.

Whoops, Honeychurch twice.

Dools

G’day WaddaDouche;
I think you have sacfrified way too much with your :
1. Rucs Longer is no guarentee start up and he will most likely share the role with Hickey thus reducing his scoring capacity
(Read Micks B. McEvoy Turncoats article) you have no coverage if either R1 or R2 go down…methinks
2. H. Shaw IMHO will need to play like never B4 to warrent the coin as he is with a new team and required to learn their structures and style (He is a wait and see not a walk up to your team…
3. I like a lot your top 3 Fwds but then the money you spent on the mids has limited you severly. Markworth, Daniel $123900 (STK)
McBean, Liam $123900 (RIC)Impey, Jarman $117300 (PTA) are not walk up starters. Have a look at Lennon and maybe another couple of wookies to replace them with or maybe X. Ellis WCE if fit
If you drop say Stevie J and get say a Dale Thomas type you have 300k extra in the kick to spend on some adjustments
I hope this is constuctive and I hope I ‘mnot sounding condesending. Good luck mate

WaddaDouche

Thx mate. Not at all. Yeah, my forward line was bothering me. Appreciate the advice!

Pieman

Some interesting POD wadda. I think Heath shaw is a watch only for me. He will get plenty of attention. Also your forward line is a bit light on. Otherwise not too bad. Also Morabito is nicely priced but I can’t see him playing early. Good luck

WaddaDouche

Cheers Pieman. Some good points. I'll have a rejiggy.

Luke

Hey Wadda

Risky Ruck department, maybe change longer for a premium durable ruck

I agree with Dools with stevie J. he is no doubt a great player but misses too many games with stupidity. Maybe beamsy around same price a murphy if looking for another replacement. I do like zaharakis who ive been trying to fit into my team but cant quiet fit him. do think he is ready to explode

I'd look at L Taylor and S Kersten as rookies for the forward line.

Other then that good looking side IMO

@noahcavanagh

jock, what are your thoughts on longer as a on field ruckmen for supercoach 2014

Boydo

I know I’m no jock Reynolds but I wouldn’t have Longer as my starting ruck especially if you have sandilands as the other ruck. IMO I would go Minson (some prefer Goldy) and Sandilands.

Boydo

Def: Bartell, McVeigh, Mitchell, Swallow, Suckling, Buntine,emg McDonald, Pearce
Mid: Ablett, Pendles, J Selwood, D Beams, Thomas, J Martin, Aish, emg C Beams, Polec
Ruck: Minson, Sandilands emg Currie Derickx
Fwd: Dangerfield, Walker (if fit), Boyd, Hogan, Bock, Rohan emg Gartlett, Taylor

Fwd rookies based on job security, if Fisolo Billings Lennon Higgins etc are fit and/or selected Boyd & Hogan may go??

Setup has backline and ruck virtually complete with mids and forward line to require upgrades.

Thoughts??

Luke

Hey Boydo

I'd probably try and get another 2 premiums in the forward and replace tex. dont think he will be the tex of old if he plays round 1 and will take time to get back into sync with afl footy.

I like Dusty, had a good year last year and shoud improve further with cotchin and deledio getting #1 taggers. Maybe Buddy aswell, the bloods culture should crack down on buddy and help him return to 2012 form.

I think you're missing a bit in defence. last year for McViegh was 'going out with a bang' when everybody else had a premiership hangover. Expect Jude Bolton type scores this year or at best his previous mid 80's. I'm not sure that Henderson will be left to roam wherever he wants next year either and basketballers don't usually respond well to tags (Pendles excused). Most of your rookies will be subs at best and suckling is very questionable. Apart from that it looks great in defense.

Zac

I'm thinking maybe Sam Mitchell to replace McVeigh. I might take a gamble on Henderson and Mitchell, after all that's what this great game of ours is about! Who might you suggest as far as rookies are concerned for some solid playing time?

With my original team I didn't think that many of those rookies would play much. I just hope my forwards do. What do you think? Thanks.

Zac

Teams looking pretty solid SCMania! Nic Nat may be a risk at 500 odd whatever he's going for, maybe consider Grundy from the Pies, he's at the top of the pecking order at Collingwood for the big man spot and that'll put around 150k in the bank to maybe upgrade buddy to wingard. I may be wrong but I can't see Buddy having a massive year this year with the swans. New playing style and he has to compete with Tippett for the goal scoring – which is the issue with KPF's; they rely on goal kicking to pull bigger scores. Maybe Chad Wingard would be a good upgrade after his breakout last year.

Zac

Yeah Lobbe would definitely work, however you might be able to fit Mumford in if you are keen on him, then there's also Mike Pyke who had a solid year last year sharing the ruck/ fwd role with Shane Mumford, do he might become a more important player for the Swans this year with Mummy and Jesse White gone. What do you reckon?

Zac

If you're feeling like a risk and/ or P.O.D, Hamish McIntosh (when fit) can be a great player both ruck and forward. That'll free up a good 150k to upgrade elsewhere. You'd need sizeable gonads to rely on his fitness though.

Hey Jock, the Possums in the ceiling at Princes Park keep on getting woken up mid-morning by Sticks yelling down the phone at Mick, "Menzel, Buckley or Cripps? Which one is replacing Eddie? Possums can't hear what Mick says back but the next thing Sticks says is "Brilliant, at least 2 of 'em each week and all 3 depending on the opponent. You're a farming genius Mick and I'll sing Stand by Your Man at your funeral if we don't make the GF."

SCMania

Hey guys, at the moment, which 2 are the best options, O'Rourke, C. Beams, Aish? Thanks.

Wombats

Whichever one gets picked for round 1

Dools

G'day SCMania
Of the 3 I think C. Beams is the most likely starter and at 187K for a Mid that will get games in 2014 season has to be up and about there. Given the mass exedus of players at the end of last season.

Aish is an intresting one mate. At 184 cms and only 74 Kgs I think he would be a long shot for later in the season. I reckon he will have to bulk up IOT play
O'Rourke whilst the cheapest of the 3 is no way a walk up starter for GWS in their top 22.

SCMania

Alex Fasolo or Gary Rohan?

Dools

G’day SCMania
To-day I’m thinking G. Rohan super cheap and if fit definatly top 22 – 23 for the Swans. Very attractive price for a very good player
Plus the round 10 bye makes him even more attractive but then the draw has to be considered will he play GWS rd 1 (I Think so) but round 8 Sydney take on the dockers at the SCG (Small Ground favouring the dockers methinks for their lock down style)
Anywho that’s my 2 cents worth mate

@joehuddler

Exploiting the R4 Loophole in 2014? Want a cheap as chips R4 thats not going to make it onto the ground, but who will play late in the round and hopefully let you maximise your onfield ruck scores (not a bad option this year if you are thinking of trying 3 of say: Sandilands, McIntosh, Hickey, Longer, Grundy; instead of 2 Guns/1 Rookie).

So, introducing the 4 cheapest Rucks in the comp (all $102,400): Jason Holmes (STK), Max King (MEL), Patrick Mitchell (SYD), and Archie Smith (BRI). Not going to see a lot of time on ground in 2014, this lot. Perfect.

My lunch break of rudimentary research was to find out who plays the latest across the year. I've looked initially at who plays on 1) the 'Last day of the Round OR Last 3 games of the Round' and 2) The very last game of the round (we don't know about Rd 23 yet, but no matter). So without further ado….

@joehuddler

Patrick Mitchell: Probably the worst option of the 4. 1) Sydney play 'Last day of the Round OR Last 3 games of the Round' only 4 times through the year and 2) Not one single solitary time do they play the last game of the round. Looks like you'll have to get a game to get in a Supercoach team this year Paddy.

@joehuddler

Archie Smith: Another no go. 1) Archies Lions play 'Last day of the Round OR Last 3 games of the Round' a mediocre 7 times during the season and 2) Again, not once do the play last game of the round. Och naw Archie.

@joehuddler

Jason Holmes: Jocks beloved Sainter is an option, but not the best one. 1) St Kilda play 'Last day of the Round OR Last 3 games of the Round' on 9 occasions which isn't bad at all, and 2) They back that up with playing the very last game of the round a whopping 3 times across 22 rounds. He's an option, but not a SureLock, Holmes (sorry).

Max King: Aside from having the strongest name ever 1) Big Maximum's Demons pip the Saints by playing 'Last day of the Round OR Last 3 games of the Round' on a mammoth 11 occasions 2) and back this up by also playing 3 times in the very final game of the round.

Therefore, my wasted lunch break has anointed Maximum "Max King" King as the Max King of R4 Loophole options for 2014.

@joehuddler

Woohoo! Max King! Yeah!

@joehuddler

No expert but at the minute, I've Pyke and Jacobs 1 and 2 (maybe Lobbe). Lone rucks score well and i'm looking for value in every spot this year. With Mummy gone, Pyke could leap up. Jacobs too, with Adelaides soft draw. Ive looked at Sandi as R3, but $300k+ is a lot. Better value R3 opportunities normally present themselves (Nicholls last year), but to start i'll go with Currie or Derickx at R3 i reckon. Not much apparent value around that price though at the minute, is there?

What do you think of this team?

Walker, McVeigh, Hanley, Suckling, Laidler, L. Thompson, (Cutler, Fuller)
Ablett, Pendles, Jack, Murphy, D Beams, Martin, Michie, O'Rourke (Garlett, Hunt)
Kreuzer, Lobbe (Nankervis, King)
Danger, Wingard, Franklin, Caddy, Hogan, Lennon (Kersten, L. Taylor)

$3,300 left

Hi mate. Wouldn't it be great f Caddy broke out seriously as a $325k forward. Ooft. Laidler is a really interesting one isn't he? Rampe did enough to cement a spot last year I reckon, and although Everitt left for Carlton, Al Johnson wants a spot back. Tough for Laidler to sustain a start I reckon, but compared to similarly priced back men he has a real chance at a regular game an even though he has a low ceiling, its probably twice what his $160k base is, making him a genuine cash cow – if he plays. Love the boldness of the Kreuzer/Lobbe ruck mate. Good luck.

Juzzo

cheers mate

Boydo

Was happy with my pre NAB cup team how ever had walker. Need some help with a quick pole. Choose one of the following Matera Caddy Murdoch Higgins (I know but could be value?) and Hunter or someone else in fed line 325k or less? Thoughts guys?

Have Danger Martin ——— M Clarke Hogan Kersten Gartlett and Taylor (Honeychurch will replace one of rookies if he is picked round 1.

@joehuddler

Sorry, im replying to everyone these days. On the drink cos its the weekend. Plus i'm excited. Just plain excited.

Look, Chappy and Corey have left the Cats. Thats two big gaps in a gun midfield. Caddy at $325 could be one of those inspired choices that takes you ahead of the pack. With forward legilibility you could be the Cat the got the cream if you have him from the start. Its not guaranteed, but – as the Father of Fantasy says – you need to be Robust Of Plum in this game.

Boydo

Thanks Joe 1 vote caddy

Dools

Hmm intresting question Boydo…
I'm thinking caddy at this stage mate given the retirements / depatures from Cattery. This just opens the door for Josh and given that his running ability is 2nd to none I think he is a huge inclusion for your fwd line
Anywho thats my 2 cents mate

Boydo

What about getting rid of Clarke and getting one of either Zorko or Motlop and Honeychurch is that too risky?

Dools

Sorry Boydo I can’t see you post for your team
So a stab in the dark from me..By Clarke with an E on the end we are talking Mitch?
Zorko had a lot of attention last year 3 rd year comming up I expect he will be able to handle it…Motlop thinks he is a superstar and maybe he is right …Geelong do Not have any Prima Donn’a
Nothing wrong with H’church at this time mate but let’s see out the Pre Season 1st eh? Stick to your guns mate until March rolls over, there is no Risk …The season has not started..Yet

Boydo

Thanks Dools to easy to get carried away so early. Your a champ mate!!

Scott

Hey Gang,
Love your work here and look forward to the friendly 'headslap' of correction, with comments like 'WHY PICK HIM!??' lol
Looking forward feedback and thoughts on 1st try of 2014 team.
Thinking the Dogs have a few 2nd year guy that might prove sneaky picks.
(GO CATS!!!!)

Cheers,

Scott

Feedback is very much apprieciated, is Luke Dunstan a bit risky? I would love Cotchin in my team for Murphy but need cash from somewhere, any ideas?

throttlefinger

Dunstan along with the rest of the rooks are a wait and see until after NAB and R1 selects (barring McDonald and Lennon, both I think will get the call off the bat). I have Dunstan in my reserves and favoring X. Ellis as the M8.

Nice team, SCMania. Rucks are the only area lacking. Consider Lobbe. Good price with great upside.

jimbotraralgon

Bartel or Mitchell to d swallow will free up cash mate.
