Jock Reynolds - The Father of FantasyFriends – this is getting fair dinkum now

What kind of coach will you be this week? Will you be the type that craps him/herself and makes some hasty last minute structural decisions?

This is the week where champions rise. And the inexperienced flounder. Many of you know that the inner sanctum are now revealing there teams.. here they are so far below.

Hi guys! all have solid teams atm.

Mind gazing an eye over my team? 55K in the bank. Thoughts and advice are welcome.

DEF: Mitchell, Hanley, Enright, Hurn, Suckling, Mcdonald (Clurey, Langdon)
MID: Ablett, Pendles, watson, Beams, Thomas, Polec, Ellis, Dunstan (Crouch, Robertson)
RUC: Mcevoy, sandilands (Thurlow, King)
FWD: Dangerfield, Martin, Pavlich, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan (JKH, McCarthy)

    @dnarmstrong · 09/03/2014 at 13:38

    Solid for mine. I'd just be worried about Sandi going down when there's no good back-up available (Dixon and Hale only half-decent ruck/forward options).

      THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:26

      Should make some value before that happens, can trade fwd to Dixon/Hale as contingency which im looking at myself. Has to be real consideration for teams with Sandi especially if rested before or after bye/easy games.

        @dnarmstrong · 09/03/2014 at 14:35

        The first price changes happen before R3? I'd be surprised if Sandi plays the first three games. Given how important he is to Freo they'll be resting him every interstate trip when he's pretty sore.

        Not having Sandi could be my downfall but I'm fairly sure it'll save me an early trade 🙂

    Kev · 09/03/2014 at 15:32

    For mine, nailed it. Well done mate

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 15:06

    Only thing I'd be worry about, is your Ruck structure. Having Sandi as your R2 and the only cover you have is Thurlow who might not play much games this year and King your Dummy ruck for that captain Loophole is little risky i must say. I think it would be better the Dummy player at the Back or Fowards, and have another playing Rookie in the ruck to support Thurlow to cover Sandi that way, you have more chance of not getting a Donut.

    A solid team you have going there.

    Nice team only weakness I can see is midfield bench it would be nice to be able to afford x Ellis and michie as not sure your two will get much game time. Taylor to Impey to IMO.

    Sorry, not Tyson and Zorko, its Xavier Ellis and Pavlich

      SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 13:52

      Very solid looking team Carl.

      Paddy is a big POD there. Definitely some risk attached but he could really explode whilst Bellchambers is out of the Dons line-up. Not sure I have the plums to pull that one myself he he.

      We have nearly identical backlines there. Like Macca as your D1. Had a BOG performance against the Lions yesterday with 34 touches, 9 clearances and a goal. Continuing on with his fine form from late last season.

    Azza · 09/03/2014 at 13:47

    I’d lose McVeigh. Unlikely he’ll put up the sorts of numbers he dI’d last year. Wright is a great choice low priced and has all the tools to avg 100+

      Jai · 09/03/2014 at 14:11

      Interested to know what makes you think that about McVeigh Azza?

        THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:32

        Yeah McVeigh racked up over 600 possies, is key player and key backman in SC this year

        Azza · 09/03/2014 at 15:25

        Just don’t think he’ll back it up. Never had those sorts of numbers before

      @Cameron23098087 · 09/03/2014 at 15:03

      I disagree, McVeigh should be able to go better if anything considering he's had another preseason under his belt +a year of experience down back. He's a great player with extreme efficiency, and despite his preseason being primarily in the mids, he even showed there his potential output.

      I'm going with McVeigh, considering he wont be 100% required in the guts with Jack/JPK/Hanners doing the hefty work, the ball will be fed to him all over the ground and he will be rested up forward I'd think too. With this, he's a strong mark and sharp shooter, he will kick goals.

        SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 15:55

        He's become an extremely versatile player and think his elite running power is a little under rated. There were a couple of times he broke the lines in their NAB 1 game where I thought "gawd he's looking dangerous early".

        Perhaps I'm paying top dollar for him but just happy to lock down my D1 and D2 spots with Macca and Mitch and not have to worry about them all season.

          THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 19:57

          Agreed, plenty of value this year can afford the price

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 15:20

    Like the Ryder pick nice POD, I am so not keen on these Dummy player in the Ruck specially when people has Sandi and a Rookie that might not play much games as cover if Sandi goes down or rested. Please get rid of that Dummy and have a playing Rookie in there or have a player at FWD with Ruck swing ability or find another Dummy in the Back or FWD.

    Other than that, the team is Strong.

    Looks like too many rookies on the field, especially with midprice value around. One too many guns forward – downgrade to Higgins/Caddy/Wright and trade up a fwd rook. Same with one ruck down to Sandi/Lobbe/Jacobs/McIntosh and upgrade a defender.

    Nice balanced team, Parker will go past Wingard this year and youd get better value if you spent that $$ on Murphy, JPK

    @Cameron23098087 · 09/03/2014 at 15:07

    Love Grimes, Swan
    However, Dixon will probably be played up forward reducing his rucking points, Hanley and Shaw will almost certainly get tagged (even if its a half effort). Jack Martin? Broooooooo, and Laidler will find it extremely difficult for gametime.

    Sorry man haha

    JJFYZZ · 09/03/2014 at 15:16

    No Beams or Dependleberry. Brave.

    Personally I don't like Bock as a choice.

    Good luck.

Would love your thoughts. 65k in bank. Uncertain on Hodge. Forward line obviously a little unorthodox, but im fairly confident in all of those players.

    Azza · 09/03/2014 at 13:49

    Love ya fwd line very unique and could give you an edge. I wouldn’t go Hodge I’d swap him for Pearce Hanley or Kade Simpson

      JJFYZZ · 09/03/2014 at 15:18

      Agree Azza. Having Turf Toe (Sandi) and a Hobbled Knee (Hodge) in 1 team is too much risk.

      Love ya MIds and Rucks

    SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 18:44

    First time I think I've seen Mayne's name mentioned here. If he has a great year he could be a massive POD for you. I plan to roll with JJK instead as a POD up forward.

    Hodgey is a bit different too. The Hawks are certainly rolling early wiping out anything in their path so I'm sure he'll be a big part of that.

    Btw think you are missing a mid there…rookie perhaps??

    Also I was at the game on Friday and I watched Higgins closely he got crunched down back and got straight up, I am banking on him outscoring Caddy. I am worried about Caddyh's DE I think he is a better dream team option.

      SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 14:15

      Yes Higgins is looking pretty appetising this season. But then again I guess that's what a burnman does this time of year….promises the world early.

      Caddy can butcher the footy when he gets it so don't blame you for picking Higgins over him and saving some cash.

        PlayRugbyUGirls · 09/03/2014 at 14:43

        Do you think that being at the price he is now and considering the price he has been in the past that the burn wont be quite as severe. I mean if he does burn, you could just quickly downgrade to a rookie or something. Maybe by the time we've figured out he is still indeed a burn man that we might have a clearer picture of which rookies to pick up. Interested to hear yours and others thoughts on that.

          SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 15:38

          Can't see him dropping any further in price so no risk at all from a value perspective.

          Only risk is that he gets injured again before he's realised his full cash potential and you have to prematurely trade him out. Has an atrocious record there and hasn't played more than 19 games in each of the past 5 seasons!

          Definitely something to think about if you're already loaded up with players like Suckers, R.Shaw, Daisy, Sandi, NicNat etc.

          Reckon I may take the punt on him though.

        Terry · 09/03/2014 at 15:25

        not sold on caddy but have been burnt by Higgins too many times.

    THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:42

    Will have issues at rnd 8 bye trade Cotch to JPK or similiar

      Emma · 09/03/2014 at 14:47

      I am not worried about having an extra premium out for round 8. I am banking on Cotchin scoring more points then say a JPK or Watson by round 8.

        THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 20:10

        You should, limits your options if injuries strike or players rested (Gibbs missed 3 weeks either side of bye at same time Goodes, Pittard went down) or if rookies not named that week. Also you can miss an opportunity if a decent rookie or value player comes available beforehand. With 3 prems you can still make a call, with 4 prems you cant do squat. Last year Luke Ball $300k avg 90ish at bubble before Pies first bye, my hands were tied. Better to be flexible. Wont outscore JPK before bye, if he does not by much. Thats my 2cents anyway, otherwise solid team 🙂

          Emma · 10/03/2014 at 10:17

          Thanks Saltshaker some good points there, I just really want Cotch in my team 🙂

        SCdonkey · 09/03/2014 at 23:52

        Looking at your starting team you have 6 (I consider Beams as Premo) Premium players out in Rd 8 bye.
        I think that's one too many extra premo not playing in Rd8. you also need to put in consideration what if there are players who gets injured or suspended by Rd8 comes.

THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 13:56

After much time and thought this weekend and multuple changes i give you


DEF: McVeigh, Mitchell, Malceski, Suckling, McDonald, Langford (Langdon, Georgio)
MID: Ablett, Pendles, JPK, Murphy, D.Beams, Daisy, Polec, Ellis (Crouch, Dunstan)
RUCK: Jacobs, Sandilands, (Currie, Thurlow)
FWD: Dangerfield, Franklin, Chapman, Pavlich, Higgins, McDonough, (Impey, Taylor)

    Ljj · 09/03/2014 at 16:09

    Chapman, why?

      Ljj · 09/03/2014 at 16:10

      Rest looks very neat

        THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 20:21

        Chappy offers great value 94avg priced at 85, can still play, scored 139 in Cats prelim last year. Slow start in NAB challenge but still got 24 touches, if he is good to round 8 ill be happy. Bombers building fwd line around him so has a role to play still. May change at the bubble. I always corrective change a prem that doesnt work and a rookie i should have got – but i do hear ya. More than likely go for Parker once sides are named just to be safe 😉

    Michael C · 09/03/2014 at 20:35

    So close to my team until the forwards. I have Simpson, Shaw and Webster in for Malceski, Laidler and Suckling. Parker for Ablett and more money spent up forward.
    Must be doing something right to be so close to yours.

      THE SALTSHAKER · 10/03/2014 at 00:12

      Cheers, have changed it, Chappy to Parker – if i had money id go Simpson as well, love how he gets so much footy around the ground. Malceski looks fit and raring to go main issue is such a good team i fear they will take pts off each other but i think good teams also help score pts as well.

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 15:29

    Much better team than the one you had, but I feel there's still a bit of room for improvement at the Back and FWD.

Stuck for options on my F6 Any pointers? Help and Feedback would be appreciated!

    THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:49

    kruezer not fit i think??

      Jag · 09/03/2014 at 14:52

      If Kreuzer isn't fit, who would you consider to replace? only $500 in the kitty, was thinking down to Leuenberger, or Maric. Gutsy even to go to Sauce? Ryder as a POD?

        PlayRugbyUGirls · 09/03/2014 at 15:00

        McEvoy is in the same bye round as Kreuzer and costs 503k I think or Cox who is off the top of my head 527k. Or there abouts. Same bye round also

          Jag · 09/03/2014 at 15:03

          So you'd recommend McEvoy for Kreuzer?

            PlayRugbyUGirls · 09/03/2014 at 15:05

            Ah sorry Cox is 578. Yeah he is an option in your price range

              Jag · 09/03/2014 at 15:11

              Cheers for the feedback

                THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 20:33

                Im going Sauce, 1st 2012, 3rd 2013 total hit outs, disappointed with himself though and keen to make impact in 2014. Has lost 4 to 5kg as working on aerobic capacity due to changes to stoppages requiring greater fitness. Crows identified that not as many hit outs to advantage in 2013 and want to win more clearances. Can only go up i believe. McEvoy will find himself fwd more at Hawks and pts shared amongst talls. Cox still best option as gets so many possies but costs a bit. Still he is 40k cheaper than 2013 and has highest Dreamteam avg which is generally a good sign of workrate.

                  Dools · 09/03/2014 at 21:53

                  Hi all Had Sauce as did BVC last year ……Burnt me so bad…I can still taste it. Going to the fridge to wash this sh1t outa my mouth. Agghhhh PTSD is a bummer if you don't like beer

    Please don't go finding a Dummy player in the Ruck, for that captain Loophole unless you have 2 premium players as your R1 & R2. Your Ruck is fine the way it is dont go ruining it, by slotting a Dummy in there.

bloody big dozer · 09/03/2014 at 14:04

def – Hodge, Mcveigh, Bartel, suckling pig, Webster and Mcdonald – INT – Clurey and Georgiou

ruck – Lobbe and Sandi – INT – Thurlow and Currie
fwd – Martin, Roughy, Dixon, Parker, Caddy, Rohan – INT – Kertsen and Honeychurch

if sandi gets injured i can swap in Charlie Dixon for Thurlow.
there are a few rookies im worried about .eg. Kersten, Honeychurch, Georgiou, Thurlow and Currie

please give me some words of wisdom. Negative and postive

    THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:50

    Move Danger fwd for Caddy, then Caddy for D.Thomas

      THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:51

      Jacobs over Lobbe

        bloody big dozer · 09/03/2014 at 15:56

Any advice on my team would be appreciated highly.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I’ve taken a punt on Higgins, swallow, caddy, Shuey, Ryder

What do you think?

    THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:54

    D.Thomas for Caddy, or Shuey to Thomas Cotchin to Ablett

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 15:37

    I'd go with that line-up John, I think you have a pretty good side. The only thing I would reconsider is your F6, maybe replace Honey for Blease or Rohan.

Boydo · 09/03/2014 at 14:13

Thinking my team might be a bit too average !!!

Taking a risk on McIntosh Sandi and Higgins no Thomas risk in mids though.

    Michael C. · 09/03/2014 at 21:39

    Looks like a "set and forget" backline. Lots of Round 8 mids – could go Cotchin to JPK

Beau · 09/03/2014 at 14:14

    Gary Ablett, Scott Pendlebury, Trent Cotchin, Dayne Beams may be too many Round 8 byes. Morabito is enticing, but may be a few weeks away – better to get him on the bubble later.
    Nic Nat is high risk/high reward – go for it!

      Preferred the original myself. Maybe downgrade Minson to Sandi and then use the extra cash to upgrade one of Fasolo of M. Brown. Not too sure on your defence of the second team.

    Fyfe, Walters and Pav too many Dockers all in the forward line? Good pod if it works! Kersten probably not in for first few weeks.

    Garlett won't play. Taylor probably not either. Or Fuller. A few more options listed in other teams.

    rolling thunder · 09/03/2014 at 21:54

    Id take one out of your mids (taking byes into account) and chucking another up front. Garlett wont play much this year. Like how youve gone goldie. good move. im going minson but it just means one less trade because goldy and minson will both prob be the best rucks. nicnat may do ok but going with injured players mean you will end up having heartbreak (especially when nicnat is packing alot of extra weight in the groin region LOL). and like most others you will hope sandi travels interstate- otherwise there will be many donuts/wasted trades thanks to sandi.

        team does not jel?? what do you mean?

    Michael C. · 09/03/2014 at 21:53

    Thompson a bit of a pod. In fact your backline is quite different from most. No obvious issues, but try to get Mitchell in if you can. He's right on the boil to start the season..

    The Terminator · 09/03/2014 at 15:00

    Im going to be frank here mate, your backline is looking really risky. I seriously think you need to put into bringing in a player like a Sam Mitchell or Jarrad McVeigh to give you some consistency in the backline. You could look at downgrading one of your players to help upgrade one of your defence players. Your Midfield looks really solid but I reckon this is where you can help get some cash. Your ruck is really good as well. For me C Sylvia is a real head scratcher and I think its honestly best to stay away from him and look like bringing in another player. Otherwise good team.

      Greg · 09/03/2014 at 15:19

      Cheers mate. I swapped Hurn for Bartel, Martin for Parker and Sylvia for Zorko.

    SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 16:11

    Yeah I agree with the Terminator. Sammy Mitchell has been arguably the player of the preseason so that's why you see him listed on nearly every team here.

    Sylvia hasn't really shown much at his new club yet so appears to be a smokey at best. So many other great choices for similar money such as Pav, Zorko, T.Mitchell, Parker, Gunston, JJK etc.

    Like your pick of Pykey and Hurn has been in and out my team so don't be afraid to stick with him if you really like him.

    Money better spent elsewhere with Sheed/Billings.

THE SALTSHAKER · 09/03/2014 at 14:58

swap McVeigh to backs for Ibbo or Taylor use cash on Murphy. Parker to fwds try turn Lids to Ablett or Swan (SC Royalty)

Terry · 09/03/2014 at 15:04

Hi all, can i have your thoughts, Dont get a lot of AFL news where I am and am not sure about the rookies

Bartel, Mitchell, Shaw, Swallow, Spurr, McDonald, Fuller(will he play early), Georgiou (will he play early),
Ablett, Swan, Kennedy, Cross, Thomas, Martin, Kelly(Gws), Dunstan, Michie(will he play early), Morabito
(will he play early),
Mumford, Jacobs, Thurlow, Nankervis,
Dangerfield, Martin, Pavlich, Hogan(will he play early), Kersten(will he play early), Taylor (Bris)(will he play early), Sicily(will he play early), Honeychurch(will he play early),

    James · 09/03/2014 at 15:48

    Hogan, Kersten and Taylor are all injured so i would jump off them, i think there are better pick than Kelly (GWS) around that price, backline good but Spurr?? i havent heard much about him but otherwise good

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 15:50

    Fuller can go for someone like Langford/Langdon/Laidler. Hasn't featured predominantly in the NAB cup and may not crack Round one, or early in the season at all.
    Georgiou should play if he is promoted from rookie.
    Michie will play early, Morabito still awhile off playing a full game. Better options, EG.. DUNSTAN. Lock.

    Your forward line needs some research with the rookies too. Eg Hogan, Kersten, Sicily, Honychurch.. OUT. (in my opinion)

    Good luck, feel free to return the favor with my team 🙂

Shannan · 09/03/2014 at 15:04

Feedback would be appreciated!

DEF: Bartel, Mitchell, Everitt, Guthrie, Sucking, McDonald (Webster, Georgiou)
MID: Ablett, Fyfe, Beams, Vince, Thomas, Tyson, Polec, Ellis (Dunstan, Crouch)
RUC: Jacobs, Sandilands (Currie, Derickx)
FWD: Dangerfield, Martin, Mayne, Monfries, Caddy, Rohan (Kennedy-Harris, Impey)

    Dylan · 09/03/2014 at 19:54

    Defence: I wouldn't start with Bartel as he will spend more time in the forward line and won't get as much of the footy as last year. Will be a good pick when his price decreases. Would go with C.Enright as he is the most consistent defender in Supercoach and $65,000 cheaper. A.Everitt and C.Guthrie are very very risky picks, I would recommend picking only 1 of them, swinging towards Everitt as I see C.Guthrie being used as a tagger.

    Midfield: Solid but just feel you are missing 1 more premium midfielder like a (J.Kennedy, T.Cotchin, J.Watson).

    Rucks: Solid wouldn't touch. S.Jacobs is a good POD.

    Forwards: I don't see any value in having either C.Mayne or A.Monfries, they were good picks last year but at there prices I wouldn't touch. Could go for L.Franklin, L.Gunston, L.Breust etc.


    Michael C. · 09/03/2014 at 21:56

    Two midfield premo strategy – lots of room for growth, but low scoring to start, especially if Vince/Daisy don't come off.
    Everitt, Guthrie also risky. COuld have Webster on the ground with another rookie on the bench and upgrade the other def.

    Michael C. · 09/03/2014 at 21:58

    See comment on the team before.

Branks · 09/03/2014 at 15:06

Would like some feedback on My team:




Suckling pig













O Rourke









Kennedy Harris




I’ll probably Change some of the rookies prior to Thursdays line ups

    Branks · 09/03/2014 at 15:14

    Forgot to add fullier as my d8. Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      WombatsFC · 09/03/2014 at 22:08

      Hi Branks,
      In addition to Garlett, fuller & honeychurch wont be starters either. M.Crouch and O'rourke are both good players but I think they'll start the season in the 2's.
      IMO hold off on Swan until you see if the recent surgery has any effect on his output, if you can get Pendle instead you wont be going backwards.
      Personally I'm not a fan of Buddy's prospects over the first 12 rounds I reckon he'll drop back to last years worst before he gets any better; he cost all of the Swans players 10% of their salary forever they hate him and wont help him until he has put everything on the line for the team. I'd look at Mitchell or Parker instead

        Branks · 10/03/2014 at 13:59

        Thanks for the advice Wombats FC!
        You are definitely right about most of the rookies you discusssed above. I am likely going to replace O'Rourke with N. Robertson, Gartlett with Z. Merret, Fuller with Langdon or Langford and honeychurch with maybe S. Kersten if he is named round 1. That is also a very good point about Buddy, I will seriously consider downgrading him to either Parker, Mitchell, or even zorko. I disagree with you on both matt crouch and Swan though, as M. Crouch looked excellent in the NAB cup, although he lacks the tank do go consistently for 4 quarters. Swan has had surgery, yet he states that while his wrist will never be 100 percent, its the best its been since 2008.

        NutSack · 11/03/2014 at 02:00

        How did Buddy cost the Swans 10% of their salary cap? The Swans traded Buddy in so the Swans cost themselves 10% of the salary cap forever. Swans offered the money and Buddy took it. Most ridiculous trade ever.

    Michael C. · 09/03/2014 at 22:01

    Garlett gone – won't play. Also lots of high prices Round 8s.

James · 09/03/2014 at 15:07

How much do you all think one should keep in reserve coming into round 1?

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 15:45

    As much and as little as you can, generally not over 50-100k. Spend as much as you are happy and content with your team.
    If you have 300k left in the kitty it just means you have to use it to upgrade a player later in the season and burn a trade, which you could do now for nothing!

shane · 09/03/2014 at 15:18

SO many teams are stacking their midfields down to M6 with thomas, vince, savage etc. Its rather daunting to look at sometimes as im using the mids to generate cash. Worried I may fall too far behind, but i think alot of people are picking too many speculative picks in the forward line to pay for it. Also see a lot of weak rookies at D6-7 and F6-7 to pay for these midfielders. I guess im hoping that you are all overestimating your cash generation abilities.
I see many players having to waste sideways trades on 400k-500k players and also underwhelming rookies early in the season. This is where i hope to make up the difference.

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 15:45

    Lots of Midfield cash cow rookies in the midfield! I'm with you Shane!
    But, one Thomas/Vince/Savage wouldn't hurt in the midfield. They definitely have great scoring capabilties.

      shane · 09/03/2014 at 15:55

      G'day mate, cant help but feel ppl are still trying to stick to previous years structures. We have so very little to choose from in def and fwd, they are all so expensive, and so are the ones we have to downgrade too. I think I can build a better team than most players, but will it be too late? lol. I currently have VINCE at M4 and TYSON at M5, vince is my hope to give me 110-120 for a few weeks and become a round 8 bye player who has fallen. But after that its all about cash gen!

      shane · 09/03/2014 at 15:58

      The first month may be hard, but while they are making sideways trades to generate cash, im hoping for 1 downgrade, 1 upgrade, should be able to creep up on them.

        SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 18:01

        It's good strategy to follow for league wins as you should be a real powerhouse by time the SC Finals roll around.

        You may find it difficult to finish top 1000 though as a lot of these speculative picks will come off so you may find it tough to catch the early bolters in the overall rankings race.

        NutSack · 11/03/2014 at 02:14

        That is not true. I think you misunderstand trading strategy. First of all noone makes sideways trades so that statement is incorrect. Only for injuries. Secondly it will be longer than 1 month where it will be hard for you. Why would anyone trade in the first month? Rookies need 6-7 weeks to increase in value.

        And you also say "but while they are making sideways trades to generate cash"- how does making sideways trades generate cash?

        And you also mentioned earlier you see many players wasting trades due to underwhelming rookies- what makes you think you wont be choosing those underwhelming rookies?

        Rookies will generate cash regardless- and all they need to avge is around 60 pts. It just means it will take an extra week or 2 to go up. But there are heaps of rookies on all lines who will easily avge 60 points.

        And you must remember that the mids arent the only position that generates cash BUT they are the only players to avge huge scores from day one.

          NutSack · 11/03/2014 at 02:14

          My reply is in relation to shane.

    Dean · 11/03/2014 at 16:08

    Shane, it all depends what your goal is when playing SC. With your strategy you wont finish in the top 5000 IMO.
    The only way your strategy has a chance of finishing in the top 5000 is if all your Rookies end up scoring like premiums which would be like winning the lotto because this year is so much harder to select quality rookies compared to the past 2 years.

Daniel · 09/03/2014 at 15:25

pretty happy with my lineup,probably have

1 or 2 too many prems in rnd 8 bye but trying

for score output and will try and trade accordingly


S.Mitchell Hanley Swallow Webster

McDonald Langford (Langdon Georgiou)


GAJ Pendles Libba Fyfe Beams Daisy

X.Ellis Polec (Michie Dunstan)


Lobbe Sandi (Thurlow Nankervis)


Danger Dusty Zorko J.Cameron

Higgins Rohan (McDonough JKH)

$9,900 in the kitty

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 15:44

    Solid defence, but will one of Langford/Langdon/Georgiou be playing every week? I hope so!

    Really strong midfield.

    " " ruck 😉

    Camerons a nice POD but will he get enough of the pill week in, week out? McDonough is a nice POD rookie, has showed lots in the NAB.

    Check out my team and return the favor!

      Daniel · 09/03/2014 at 16:14

      cheers SCLegend,really,all my rookie priced are up in the air right up until
      team selections. Cameron is a bit risky but get the feeling his aerobic capacity
      and the fact he has a bit of c$&t about him will see him win a bit more of his own footy,
      and lastly,the team should improve as a whole which in turn will help cammo increase
      his disposal avg. Well,I’m hoping anyway!

Haydn · 09/03/2014 at 15:26

Hello Community, really unsure this year so be honest!!

Backs: S.Mitchell, Hanley, Swallow, Suckling, S.Shaw, McDonald. Bench: Georgiu and Cutler

Mids: Ablett, Pendles, Libba, Beams, Shiels, Michie, Polec, Ellis. Bench: Dunsten and M. Crouch

Rucks: Sandi and Jacobs. Bench: Thurlow and Nankervis

Forwards: Danger, Dusty, T. Mitchell, Gray, Caddy, Higgins. Bench Kennedy-Harris and Rohan

I know the ruck risk with sandi

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 15:38

    Looks like a solid team Haydn, not too sure about Gray? Nice POD but I think the money could be spent better elsewhere! The forward looks almost too loaded. Maybe upgrade Michie to Tyson in the midfield and downgrade Gray?
    Cheers, give my team some tips if you'd like to return the favor! 🙂

Jerry · 09/03/2014 at 15:26

Hi there, as we set up our supercoach teams can someone explain the week one and two split round to me. In particular, when the first game starts do we start to burn our trades and only have the 2 trades for the round. If this is the case it will make it hard to pick the best side possible not knowing the teams in the second week of the first round.

Thoughts, strategy recommendations please?

    Kev · 09/03/2014 at 16:09

    Jerry, you're free to make as many swaps as you need to up until round 2. However, say for Friday nights collingwood v freo game, you'll need to have any players from those teams locked away in your side. As such, you won't be able to swap any collingwood or freo players into your team until round 1 is complete

SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 15:37

Hello community, looking forward to a solid 2014 SC season after an extensive pre-season. I'm proud to say, I have put in even more hours as previous seasons!
I would, however, like some opinions on how the team is looking or advice:
Mitchell, Hanley, Enright, Suckling, McDonald, Laidler (Langford, Georgiou).

The plan here is to get McVeigh and Bartel in when they drop in price, 570k is a bit on the expensive side!

Ablett, Watson, Liberatore, Cotchin, Beams, Thomas, X.Ellis, Dunstan (Polec, Crouch).

Pretty happy with the midfield, sort of leaning towards Vince and Tyson getting in there somewhere, any ideas?

Leunberger, Sandilands (Thurlow, Nankveris)

Dangerfield, Martin, Franklin, Wright, Rohan, Kennedy-Harris (Merret, Impey).

I'm happy to take the punt on Wright at the moment and overall, I am generally reluctant in spending less cash in the forward/ruck as it is generally more inconsistent. I'll wait and see who performs throughout the season!

So, community, any opinions or better plans?
Wright? Vince? Tyson?

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 16:05

    Higgins (FWD) and Tyson (MID)
    Wright (FWD) and Crouch (MID)?

    Haydn · 09/03/2014 at 16:09

    Think maybe little light in forward line, risky starting both Rohan and JKH

      SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 16:17

      Thomas (MID) and Merret (FWD)
      out for,
      Tyson (MID) and Higgins (FWD)?

      Would that look better?

        SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 16:37

        Mitchell, Hanley, Enright, Suckling, McDonald, Laidler (Langford, Georgiou).

        Ablett, Watson, Liberatore, Cotchin, Beams, Tyson, X.Ellis, Dunstan (Polec, Crouch).

        Leunberger, Sandilands (Thurlow, Nankveris)

        Dangerfield, Martin, Franklin, Wright, Higgins, Rohan, (Kennedy-Harris, Impey).


          SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 17:54

          That's looking good SCL.

          Leuey will be a nice POD for you.

@Cameron23098087 · 09/03/2014 at 15:38

Is Griffin carrying an injury? Whats the situation with him?

    James · 09/03/2014 at 15:56

    Griffen has been carrying a back injury through the pre-season

James · 09/03/2014 at 15:44

Accepting any criticism on my team

B: McVeigh, Mitchell, Hanley, Webster, Martin, Laidler (McDonald, Langford)
M: Ablett, Rockliff, Jack, Cotchin, Beams, Shuey, Michie, Polec (Dunstan, Crouch)
R: Jacobs, Sandilands (Derickx, Thurlow)
F: Dangerfield, JJK, Parker, Lamb, Rohan, JKH (Merrett, L McCarthy)

    @Cameron23098087 · 09/03/2014 at 15:49

    -Not sure if JJK can replicate last year
    -Laidler wont get games
    -FWD rookies not so sure on

    -Lamb is gun, will be great value, good pick
    -Enjoy your 400 points a week from McVeigh, Mitchell and Hanley haha
    -Strong Mids, Rockliff, Jack and Shuey great PODs
    -No Dusty could be great, but could also screw you haha, might be worth swapping JJK to Monfries to give you some consistent points

      James · 09/03/2014 at 15:52

      that was a quick reply, i wasnt expecting one so quick. JJK i have chosen because of good early draw might upgrade if makes cash, Laidler should play because Alex Johnson is still injured. I wanted to start without any first year rookies on ground but havent been able to do that with JKH but meh BRING ON ROUND ONE!!

        @Cameron23098087 · 09/03/2014 at 16:16

        I still think Shaw/Nick Smith/Rampe are first in line, with Rampe to get pushed out when AJ gets back, with Laidler still missing out. Anyway, thats my 2 cents.
        Fair point with JJK, just an awkward price at this point however definitely a high risk/high reward!
        I think I'm with you praying they name a bounty of forward rookies for round 1!

          James · 09/03/2014 at 16:25

          good point there Cameron23098087 about Shaw/Smith and Rampe that may cause me to rethink it all but i cant see many other good def rookies out there because Fuller didnt play NAB and im unsure about Langdon and Cutler

            @Cameron23098087 · 09/03/2014 at 16:29

            Yep, thats exactly right, forced me to stretch my cash across the defenders, leaving me with: McVeigh, Grimes, Suckling, Shaw, Webster, McDonald (Georgiou/Cutler)

            Rookie defenders are so desolate, will chop and change when teams get named, good luck with finding some!

James · 09/03/2014 at 15:48

Checkout my team, different structure but have a different strategy to win my league

Def: Mitchell, Dunn, suckling, McDonald, Langford, Langdon (Cameron, Georgio)
Mid: ablett, pendlebury, swan, Goddard, prestia, beams, treloar, Vince ( crouch, Robertson)
Ruck: lobbe, sandilands ( derickx, currie)
Fwd: danger field, Martin, caddy, b.kennedy, rohan, McDonough (Kennedy-Harris, Z Merrett)

Let the abuse begin haha

    Branks · 09/03/2014 at 16:03

    Simply put, too many midpricers. You should probably choose only one of Vince/trelor/prest, snd personally I don’t understand the selection of Dunn. Really like.your bench rookie picks though, Robertson, McDonough and merret are good Pod rookies.

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 16:06

    WORST TEAM I'VE EVER SEEN (There's your abuse)
    And, seriously, Dunn, Goddard, Treloar, B.Kennedy, the door is that way. Better options available James.

    Kev · 09/03/2014 at 16:17

    A different looking team is exciting! I'd look at dropping one of Vince/treloar for one of the popular rookies so you have a bit more cash generation coming through. Someone a bit more reliable than Dunn for your D2

    SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 16:20

    Just think you are missing out on the best cash cow rookies by loading up in the middle.

    As result your back line is looking very brittle and you're counting on perhaps too many rookies with iffy JS to stave off donuts or generate decent cash in that area.

    It's certainly a different strategy I'll give you that. 🙂

    vinnymac · 09/03/2014 at 17:59

    I like how this team is different!
    Yes I agree with the other responses – put on a polec or ellis in mid, and use the cash to grab a webster or shaw in def.
    However if you are confident that those rookies will play, and that those midpricers will become guns, stick by your research!

    daryl_prasad · 09/03/2014 at 20:04

    Reid for Dunn

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 16:11

    Too weak of the defence, invest in a Mitchell/McVeigh.

    Probably one too many premiums in the midfield, downgrade one of them to a midpricer or rookie,.. Tyson?

    Sandilands too expensive to sit on the bench, good bye Hickey.

    No Dangerfield in the forward line? Is he not going to be one of the top six scoring forwards for the season? Lock him in and throw away the key for the whole season.

      SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 16:13

      Feel free to return the favor.

      Cozza · 09/03/2014 at 22:37

      Agree with this. Possible look at downgrading Griffen – given his limited preseason due to back injury, I would not be expecting him to produce the kind of scores early in the season to justify his price – we saw what a back injury did to Hawkins last year! This should free up some cash to invest in an extra premo in the forward line.

      Also interesting with Dusty and Danger in the midfield. The midfield seems to me to have better rookies than the forward line, so I would look at swapping one or both of them for rookies in your forward line to increase potential cash generation and scoring potential from rookies.

      That said, I would not swap all of Griffo, Danger and Martin – that would leave you too light on in the mid.

    vinnymac · 09/03/2014 at 18:07

    Very interesting how you have gone with DPP premiums in mid, I'd be interested to know your strategy here, since it seems the fwd and def lines will be inconsistent.

    SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 16:30

    A survivor man like me. Hope you are enjoying season 28.

    Only suggestion I'd make is to somehow switch Mitchell to the forward line as you really don't want him taking up a valuable midfield spot in my view.

      Bolton Pies · 09/03/2014 at 16:43

      lol…..not a big fan of survivor any more……not for a long time…….too many professional "contestants" on it these days! but i do love the tagline!

      "somehow switch Mitchell"……makes sense, but at whos expense forward and who to drop into that mid place is the problem though SCaddict……has me scratching my head a little

        Bolton Pies · 09/03/2014 at 16:45

        I know its staring me in the face, but i've been at this for a couple of hours now so its probably hiding in plain sight!!

          vinnymac · 12/03/2014 at 14:11

          What if, you take out Pav, put Mitchell up fwd and then grab yourself a nice mid who you know can outscore him.

        SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 17:09

        Sorry but you're going to have to make that call on your own BP.

        Only saying keep that in mind as you rejig your team like the rest of us in the lead up to Rd1. If you can't fit him up forward so be it.

          Bolton Pies · 09/03/2014 at 17:56

          LOL! Just thinking out load really SC………Im starting to think that IF Mitchell in the mid is my only problem then maybe for the time being its not really that big of a deal at this stage, and wait to see what unfolds in the first couple of weeks.

Hey guys, who do you believe is the best fwd option under 400.000. thanks

    Hawkaz · 09/03/2014 at 17:11

    I'd say Caddy if you're after a mid pricer.

    SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 17:33

    For me it's out of Caddy, Tomahawk, Higgins or Wright. All come with their own pros and cons.

    So would pick who you feel most comfortable with Rhino.

Matt Pereira · 09/03/2014 at 16:32

Defenders: Bartel, Mitchell, Hanley, Suckling, R.Shaw, L.McDond, K.Kolodajashnij, Cutler

Midfield: Fyfe, Cotchin, Dal Santo, Ziebell, Beams, Shiels, J.Martin, Polec, Morabito, Crouch

Ruck: McIntosh, Sandilands, Thurlow, Lobb

Forward: Dangerfield, D.Martin, Wingard, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan, L.Taylor, Kennedy Harris

    Matt Pereira · 09/03/2014 at 16:40

    Tried to go with a fairly original midfield. Thoughts?

    Jordan · 09/03/2014 at 19:08

    Who would your captain be? I don't see any of them to pull big scores, looks fine though

      Wattsie · 09/03/2014 at 19:38

      Hi Matt,

      I'd look at the midfield structure. Ruck is weak and risky, may want to look at that too.

Dwaino · 09/03/2014 at 16:34

Starting to think my side is a little too conservative. I just don't have the nurries to take a dive on some of the PODs :(. Rookie selections still permitting at this stage. $46,600 left in the kitty and would rather keep it for early round corrections.

DEF: S Mitchell, P Hanley, C Enright, M Suckling, J Webster, L McDonald (T Cutler, A Georgiou)
MID: G Ablett, T Cotchin, D Beams, M Murphy, D Thomas, V Michie, J Polec, L Dunstan (M Crouch, N Robertson)
RUC: B McEvoy, S Jacobs (F Thurlow, T Nankervis)
FWD: P Dangerfield, C Wingard, D Martin, L Parker, J Caddy, S Blease (Z Merrett, J Kennedy-Harris)

    Dean · 11/03/2014 at 17:08

    Not a bad side at all. The only thing I would change is not have both M Murphy & D Thomas in your Midfield especially so when you have C Wingard & D Martin in your forward line, your not going to benefit from the DPP that they have.

    I would get rid of Thomas and have Wingard take his place, that will then allow you to swap Martin and Wingard from MID/FWD which comes in very handy in the buy rounds.

    You could then put someone like T HAWKINS in your forward line and you will still have $29,900 in the kitty. Think about it anyway apart from that its a great side.

Jordan · 09/03/2014 at 16:35

Tyson or Polec. Going Guns and rookies with plenty of cash to spare

    SC Legend. · 09/03/2014 at 16:38

    Zorko. He burnman.
    Possible trade him for parker/mitchell
    Solid looking team. You could swap Thomas/shuey for gun + tyson, nbut that is only a suggestion. Possibly get dixon into fwd line to cover for sandilands rest/injury

dean · 09/03/2014 at 17:05

Hey guys, would really appreciate some help on this decision before i post my team, would you advise pendles + Tyson in mid with $180k in the bank, or downgrade pendles to liberatore and then swap tyson out for someone like Priddis or shuey?

    simmo3 · 09/03/2014 at 17:19

    I like pendles and Tyson with the left over cash mate

    SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 17:44

    Libba and Pridda/Shuey sounds pretty awesome to me!

    Besides $180K is too much in the kitty for mine.

    The other option is very good too btw.

      SCdonkey · 09/03/2014 at 23:59

      Like what Mr. SCaddict said.
      having that much cash in the kitty just a waste for it to be sitting in there, which you can use it to better your team to earn cash and generate points.

oliverfisher · 09/03/2014 at 17:13

Open to any criticism you may have, will hopefully be able to improve my team from this.

Mitchell, Hanley, Enright, Hurn, Webster, Mcdonald ( Clurey, Georgiou)

Pendlebury, Fyfe, Cotchin, Beams, Shuey, Vince, Polec, X Ellis ( Dunstan, Crouch)

Jacobs, Sandilands ( Derickx, Thurlow)

Martin, Dixon, Parker, Caddy, Fasalo, Rohan, ( Kennedy- Harris, Impey)
Remaining salary $3300, which is a lot less than i would have liked.

Was thinking of downgrading Rohan to a cheaper forwards rookie and then trying to get Tyson in my mid.

Thank you all in advance for any help you an give me.

Jimmy · 09/03/2014 at 17:17

James · 09/03/2014 at 17:20

Fasolo or Rohan??

Impey or Kerstan?


    SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 17:27

    Rohan and Impey will likely make my team assuming they are named in the 22 and not declared the sub.

    Good thing is they both play early in the split round so you can lock them in with more surety than some of the iffy rookies in the second week. Same for Fasolo in that regard.

rio · 09/03/2014 at 17:22

G'day guys
Wouldn't mind some opinions on my team as it stands to give us a bit of a hand. Just over $100,000 left to allow for some more changes/upgrades

    Sully321 · 09/03/2014 at 19:03

    IMO ellis

James · 09/03/2014 at 17:33

Langdon, Clurey or Langford as D8?

    Mark · 09/03/2014 at 20:24

    Clurey will definitely play, I suspect Langdon will now that Marley is done for who knows how long and Langford went off the ground injured after the Melbourne practice match this weekend although they didnt say what or how bad it was and I haven't heard anything since but you'd think if it was something major they would have said.

Ben · 09/03/2014 at 17:41

What are peoples thoughts on the rucks this year. Im liking 1 premium, 2 mid and a dummy.

    Whiteeeey · 09/03/2014 at 17:51

    I'm going two mids and two cheapies.

      Ben · 09/03/2014 at 17:54

      I'm scared that sandi wont play every week and thurlow isnt looking like being a big scorer

        Whiteeeey · 09/03/2014 at 18:05

        Get Charlie Dixon in the forward line and then if Sandi goes down and Thurlow disappoints you can switch them and trade thurlow out of the forward line.

    dogs · 09/03/2014 at 18:21

    i'm thinking i've probably invested too much in the more expensive rookies , maybe downgrade to a few of the cheaper options and add someone like a shuey in the middle

      SCaddict · 09/03/2014 at 18:27

      No I think all your rookies are fine dogs so don't sweat it there.

      Not particularly keen on Blease myself. More of a Rohan man but hey that could just be my Swans inner voice speaking.

      Dixon is a decent POD. Not many have the gonads to pick him but he's a little bit of ruck cover there in case Sandi gets rested a week here or there.

        Dogs · 09/03/2014 at 19:16

        Cheers SCaddict, I'm a swans fan myself , the only reason I have blease instead of Rohan is that I'm trying to be a bit more impartial,lol. Could easily pick 7-8 swans in my team .

        That's my thinking on Dixon, he should perform ok this year, there's a few more options similarly priced that will score better, but with a returning from injury player on every line I felt a bit of insurance might save me a trade .

        Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 19:19

        agreed SCaddict, rookies are good (bar Sheed? tough midfield to crack into)

        Blease is a massive risk, and rohan will play every game and should get your 60-80 most games

        rest of your team looks very solid!

    Dogs · 12/03/2014 at 19:14

    A few changes
    Defenders- the same except for Langdon out for georgiou

    Mids- ablett , Barlow, rockliff, beams, daisy, polec, x-Ellis , dunstan, (michie, Robertson….or whoever gets picked to start)

    Rucks- same except for Derrick out for king…. VC loophole

    Forwards-1 danger, dusty, titch, wright, caddy, Higgins, (Rohan, JKH)……still not sure of this, too many risks?
    My alternate is
    2 danger , dusty, JJK, titch , caddy, Rohan ( impey, JKH )

    I'm thinking lineup 1 has 3 keepers , but will generate a lot of cash and potential big scores, whearas lineup 2 has 4 keepers , more reliable scoring, but less cash generating . 2 also leaves enough cash to select McDonough instead of impey depending on selection

    I'm hoping my on field rookies are all pretty much locked starters as I won't get many chances to look at final teams before each game, so bench rookies will be first named , first locked in for me unfortunately .

    Still not sure about my premium mids either…… Barlow is more of a POD for me as I don't think I've seen him named once yet and he works in well with the byes. Bye numbers are 8–7-15. 9of the 15 in round 10 are rookies that most of should be traded out weeks 9-10 anyways, and round 8 as long as my fwd rookies are playing I should only have 1-2donuts in the team depending on which lineup I run with

    45k in the kitty at the moment, thoughts anyone?

SCtragic · 09/03/2014 at 17:56

need the community to give my team the once over

have 40k left over bye rounds are 10 / 6 / 14
hoping hibberd gets up for R1 and is having Rioil on the bench for 1 week an ok/bad idea?

    favalinko · 09/03/2014 at 20:12

    solid team mate, rookies good just need to see if named rnd 1. Rioli pick nice pod will be ok if Merret and JHK play rnd 1. Well done

Duncan · 09/03/2014 at 18:24

Thoughts on Tom Mitchell?….he is looking like my special POD pick.

    daryl_prasad · 09/03/2014 at 20:00

    Mitchell is a gun.

    Jimmy · 09/03/2014 at 23:09

    He has had an interrupted pre season so might not be ready to fire straight away. I’d love to put him in but have gone for his team mate Parker instead.

    Very good team. Like your overall structure and selctions of caddy and savage as midprice options. Only two changes I would make would be downgrading McIntosh to sandilands and upgrading zorko to beams Otherwise,nice team

    Michael C. · 09/03/2014 at 21:17

    I think you are a bit thin in defence. Laidler and Fuller may not play, Cutler is probably only bench material. Go Zorko down to Higgins and upgarde a defender or two. Possibly to Webster, Shaw or McDonald who have better security.

      Sully321 · 09/03/2014 at 21:57

      I already have McDonald in mid and I'm not sure I'm willing to risk Higgins. Any other suggestions? I was thinking dropping Goldstein to someone about 100k cheaper but who?

      Not worries about Parker. Nice to see Sloan – I was wondering how long it would be before someone picked him. I think the crows fly under the radar a bit. Macrae is good too – thinking of him myself.

    I am 50/50 on your line up. I feel like I would prefer another premo in the midfield, and one less either in DEF or FWD. I know there are a lot of good rookies in the midfield that we want to take advantage of, but you may be sacrificing some good points by taking 5 rookies there and only 4 premos. Perhaps upgrading D Thomas or a rookie to another midpricer?

    Dolner · 12/03/2014 at 17:50

    get rid of riewoldt and upgrade Dale Thomas, he doesn't look ready to me.
    Not sure what this David Swallow circle jerk is all about either.
    Even if Derickx gets a game, he's a massive spud and wont score over 40.
    Like the Gaz, Pendles combo from the start, im going with that.
    Where's tayte pears, LOLZ 😉

Sully321 · 09/03/2014 at 20:52

Hi community,
I'm looking for a good fwd/mid less than 200,000 to put in my midfield so I can have more flexibility with dpps (not honeychurch, Taylor or garlett)

    Billy · 09/03/2014 at 21:20

    Hey Sully321,
    Not much to choose from that is fwd/mid. The best option IMO is Sam Blease at 179,100

      Dolner · 12/03/2014 at 17:51

      burst player, never going to be good at SC

    Simmo3 · 09/03/2014 at 21:28

    Can you find 7k and get billings?

    Lord Relton Roberts · 09/03/2014 at 23:03

    Theres no doubt DPP players are handy but dont detriment your team just to get one.. not at this stage anyway.. my opinion your better off just getting a decent rookie who will start (theres loads in the mids compared to forward) and worry about DPP later in the year when you have the jist of the cattle

      Sully321 · 10/03/2014 at 09:37

      Thanks for the advice I decided to go with James aish

        Lord Relton Roberts · 10/03/2014 at 11:35


      Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 09:50

      I agree with Lord Relton, there is too much talent in the midfield this year to worry about a DPP, it may happen later in the year when we upgrade the rookies but at the moment its not worth your time worrying about.

Zac · 09/03/2014 at 20:57

Bank : $135k
DEF: Mitchell Hanley Enright
Suckling Webster L.McDonald
(Langdon Laidler)
MID: Ablett Cotchin Murphy Beams
D.Thomas Polec Michie Tyson
(M.Crouch Dunstan)
RUC: McEvoy Sandilands
(Nankervis Thurlow)
FWD: Dangerfield D.Martin Dalhaus
M.Wright Caddy Lamb
(Apeness Kennedy-Harris)
Any advice/ feedback would be appreciated!
Also Apeness or Honeychurch??

    Sully321 · 09/03/2014 at 20:59

    IMO consider trading suckling for someone like swallow

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 09:48

    Quite like you side, obviously decided to skimp on Pendles and spend his money elsewhere which is fine. The team line up looks great.

    Only things I can say is Lamb may struggle to even get time in the GWS side at the start, if you have some inside information and know hes gonna skyrocket then keep him. But I get the impression he hasn't set the world a fire in West Sydney. Also from Apeness and Honeychurch don't think either of them will play round 1 (check the rookie cheat sheet) so perhaps look for another option.

    Also Laidler might not get the game time he is after either. I think there are some good options in DEF for rookies so perhaps look to get him out?

    Otherwise side is tops.

    Fraser · 10/03/2014 at 18:43

    ditch Apeness for Lewis Taylor or Honeychurch
    Strong team =)

Backs- Mitchell, Hibberd, Hanley, Suckling, Webster, McDonald (Fuller, Georgiou)

Mids- Ablett, Pendles, Watson, D.Beams, Martin, Tyson, C.Beams, Dunstan (Ellis, M.Crouch)

Rucks- Luenberger, Sandilands (Thurlow, Brown)

Other points-

-Just about nothing left in the bank.
-Wondering about whether I should find replacements for Fuller and Martin.
-Jock was pumping up Zorko's tyres for ages and then couldn't squeeze him in……what should I make of that…

    The Mullet · 09/03/2014 at 21:35

    replacement for Jack Martin…..

    Jye · 09/03/2014 at 21:51

    Hey mate, just posted my team and saw yours.
    If you're only interested in league wins you should really be looking to build up the $$$ early with top quality rookies and worry less about point scoring at the start. This will let you get a super team at finals time with heaps of premiums.
    I think you could switch Fuller to Langford, looks great and should get a game hopefully. I'd switch Martin for Polec who's been killing it.
    Also, Beams got injured in the trial game I'm pretty sure so you should look at getting him out. Maybe Michie?
    Think Zorko will have a better year than last. Can't remember why Jock didn't put him in, did he say why?

    All the best champ

Jye · 09/03/2014 at 21:47

Howdy Gents. Would love some feedback on my team! Anything is appreciated!

matthewjsampson · 09/03/2014 at 22:17

G'Day community,

As we head into the business end of team selection, I'd appreciate some feedback on my team 🙂

Still needs a bit of work, and I'm open to making changes to any line.

DEF: J. McVeigh, S. Mitchell, C. Enright, M. Suckling, J. Webster, L. McDonald.
BENCH: T. Clurey, A. Georgiou (both pending rd. 1 selection)

MID: G. Ablett, T. Cotchin, N. Dal Santo, D. Beams, Liberatore, J. Polec, X. Ellis, L. Dunstan.
BENCH: M. Crouch, Robertson (Pending selection).

RUCK: M. Lobbe, A. Sandilands.
BENCH: F. Thurlow, T. Nankervis (Or Derrickx pending selection).

FOR: P. Dangerfield, D. Martin, L. Parker, D. Zorko, J. Caddy, J. Kennedy-Harris.
BENCH: G. Rohan, Merrett (again, pending selection)

Have at it boys (and girl). Hit or shit?

Give It A Go · 09/03/2014 at 22:17

Hi community,

It's tops that Jocks put a team reveal up.

Here's mine

Have a tinkle and tell us what you think?

DEF: Mcveigh, Mitchell, Enright, Grimes J, Webster, McDonald – : Langdon, T, Georgiou

MID: Ablett, Cotchin, JKP, Beams, Shiels, Thomas, Polec, Ellis -: Dunstan, Robertson

RUCK, Ryder, Sandi, Derickx, and Thurlow, F

FWD, Danger, Roughy, Parker L, Caddy, Higgins, Kennedy B, Impey and Kennedy-Harris

Gut is telling me to go with Ryder, any thoughts on Kennedy B as F6

Cheers community

@Jakespoonman · 09/03/2014 at 22:23

Version 1.8 of The Haggis Hunters;

D: Mitchell, Hanley, Thompson, Suckling, Webster, Mcdonald (Cutler, Georgiou)

M: Ablett: Liberatore, Kennedy, Priddis, Beams, Thomas, Dunstan, Michie (Crouch, Ellis)

R: McEvoy, Sandilands (thurlow, nankervis)

F: Roughy, Parker, Mitchell, Gunston, Fasolo(?), Kennedy-Harris,( Rohan, Cameron)

FWD rookies causing concern. One possible option is to drop Thomas and pick up Caddy in the fwd and draft in another rookie mid. Any thoughts as always greatly appreciated!

    Sarah · 12/03/2014 at 11:23

    And I thought I would be the only one with the Ablett, Libba, Priddis and Beams combo!!
    Nice addition of JPK. It does leave you a little light in the forward line though.

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 13:26

    lose one of the premos in the mids to accomodate for the light fwd line Jake.

    mid rookies are the cash generators this year so dont be afraid to have a few of them playing this year

    solid side mate.

    Little concerned with the back line of everitt and brown. Just a little weak in the middle, otherwise very solid

Boydo · 09/03/2014 at 22:36

Who is the better risk McIntosh (ruck) or Thomas (mid) only going to take one of these two. Options are shuey/McIntosh or Thomas/(Lobbe or Jacobs). As many opinions as possible please?

    SCdonkey · 09/03/2014 at 22:55

    Thomas/Jacobs or Lobbe would be the safest combo. But if you can afford Shuey/Jacobs or Lobbe is even a better combo IMO.

      Boydo · 09/03/2014 at 23:01

      Yeh can’t afford both need to chose either Thomas or McIntosh

jimbotraralgon · 09/03/2014 at 22:59

Ok time for my latest…
D/ Mitchell, hanley, d swallow, watts, suckling, McDonald (fuller, langdon)
M/ gaj, pendles, Murphy, d beams, daisy, c beams, polec, x ellis, (aish, dunstan)
R/ nicnat, sandi (f thurlow, a smith)
F/ danger, dusty, buddy, pavlich, Higgins, Rohan (kennedy-harris, l Taylor)

Unresolved issues….
* looks like any starting rookies will fill the defence and 1 of the fwd bench spots. I'm not fussy at this stage.
* nicnat? Hmmmm…..
* you will see that clay beams is still in the side.I will need to replace him but with who?
* I have no idea on F3. Buddy was terrible nab 2…maybe Dixon for Ruck coverage? Maybe Cyril and his new role? Maybe tom Mitchell break out? Zorko? Maybe even jack darling?

Please help me 🙂

    Boydo · 09/03/2014 at 23:04

    Wright for buddy and upgrade Nic nat to premium ruck maybe minson or Goldie

      Boydo · 09/03/2014 at 23:29

      Can you find extra $$ to change C Beams to Tyson?

    SCdonkey · 09/03/2014 at 23:34

    one too many Risks for my liking. Like the Watts pick, I myself is thinking of slotting him in. Watts or Swallow been switching them two for the past month and a half, very ballsy having them both in your side. Either downgrade or perhaps upgrade one of them.

    Smurfet and Daisy I would also flip a coin, though either of them are not in my team just couldn't find spot for them. C Beams maybe swap him for Tyson or Michie as you already have Polec, x-man and AIsh

    Wow!!! very Risky Nicnat and Sandi hopefully they both stay on park for it to work. I'd say drop Nicnat, upgrade Sandi when later when he has made you enough cash.

    Not a fan of Buddy this last couple of years,yes can score BIG and he can also score small way too inconsistent for my liking,

    Apart from those, teams looking ok

    throttlefinger · 10/03/2014 at 21:54

    Hey Jimbo! Very nice structure. Just have a couple suggestions.

    Quite a jump down from Mitch and Hanley. Think Swallow is a risk. Watts a double risk. Maybe an Enright, Houli or Hurn may work just as well. Use Webster as a D5.

    Mids are strong…although you know the obvious about Beams. Slot Aish in and get a $117K rook to save some moola.

    NicNat, hmmm. Indeed.

    On the record being not a big fan for Buddy R1. He's emotionally gonna need some time to get use to the Swans. See his price dropping big. Gonna bring him in after the byes after he gets in step with Tippett and Goodes. Parker is a thought. I'm paying a little more and doing JJK. Great opening draw and he's looked in strong form. With their new pressing game, think it will serve his game well.

    My 2 cents, my man.

    Oh, and if you have room for another league, join mine: 231330

    daryl_prasad · 12/03/2014 at 00:46

    Try Monfries at F3…great consistency

Lord Relton Roberts · 09/03/2014 at 22:59

MIDS: Ablett, Watson, Cotchin, Murphy, Beams, Tyson, Polec, Dunstan (Cunningham, Crouch)

FORWARDS: Dangerfield, Martin, Mitchell, Zorko, Caddy, Rohan (Impey, JKH)

My round one team (for now)…. Scraps in the kitty.. What do you recon guys im up for any feedback haha
Cheers 🙂

    Boydo · 09/03/2014 at 23:06

    Awesome team relying on that def 6 rookie for an on field performance. What about Jacobs or Lobbe for ruck 1??

    jimbotraralgon · 09/03/2014 at 23:18

    Very bloody solid fella.

    Ideally I would like to see pendles in there but a side I would be happy to serve up.

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 00:13

    I like it, I like it a lot. Simple but very solid team and well balanced only concern is D6 and hope Zorko pays off.

SCdonkey · 09/03/2014 at 23:00

hmmmm anticipating and very interested on the following SC coaches to post their teams

      throttlefinger · 10/03/2014 at 21:09

      Is Keyboard drinking stout? Bold and tasty, my friend.

      Dools · 10/03/2014 at 21:20

      Damn ment to mention 200K in the bank to fix all my errors. But I think I'm good

        throttlefinger · 10/03/2014 at 21:41

        You and Keyboard feeling up to join my league, Doolser?

        Welcome to the Throttledome: 231330

    RUK: Cox, Sandi (Thurlow, King)
    FWD: Danger, Dusty, Pav, Caddy, Rohan (JKH, Impey)

    Still some jostling needing to be done, especially Watson. D4/5 is giving me the biggest problem. Not 100% on Rohan. May go up or down depending on selects and what gut says.

      Dools · 10/03/2014 at 21:43

      Ah TF you are on the Vino – "Its Fruity with just enough spice to KICK the S1ht outa your Taste buds"
      Mate Houli to many clangers Gets the ball though….Love the front line and very very solid Mid I like this a lot mate well done and thought out so
      Here we are D – 4 . How many times will we change our line ups LOL B4 then brother

        throttlefinger · 10/03/2014 at 21:49

        HA! I reckon 20 more times until lockout sounds about right, my man.

        Thought the rucks would be the headache. Although still not completely sold on going Coxie but like Eagles opening draw.

        Been drinking more vino so it makes sense. Beer makes me bloaty and tequila a tad too squinty. Sure that will change once the season starts. Need to order some Coopers for the rd1. Thanks for the reminder, Keyboard!

    throttlefinger · 10/03/2014 at 21:41

    curious on your decision to play danger in the miss. One of the few that has done that.

    Makes him almost a POD in the miss.

    Btw…please rethink Matty wright.

      Fitzy · 09/03/2014 at 23:31

      Thanks mate i'll have a look at some alternatives

chase · 09/03/2014 at 23:10

Westhoff or buddy?

I know buddy can go hit the massive scores but am worried about his inconsistent scores, hence why westhoff is in my line up at the mo.


    jimbotraralgon · 09/03/2014 at 23:23

    gee its like choosing to cut the left globe off or the right. By the way, I went for the right (buddy).

    @Linca_HotTiges · 10/03/2014 at 00:51

    Buddy, if you get burned.. more will have him.. Westy could be a decent POD. I'm avoiding both.. turn your head and cough

Would also be interested anyone's thoughts on Bugg vs R Shaw vs Webster in DEF, Tyson vs Michie in the MIDS, Luey vs Lobbe / Jacobs in the RUCK & Rohan vs Lloyd/Impey as F7

    Dools · 10/03/2014 at 21:12

    Hey mate I think Hibbard is solid pick but injury has made him off the list
    Solid mid mate good mix and fwd line if /When firs will be great Nice team
    Bugg is going to be a Tagger so X from me, Rhys shaw better produce as also Webbster. I Think Tyson is a better SC option. Rucs Lobbe is still unproven I rate ham and egg buger Nice
    Impey will play be paitient but maybe 170K on F7 too much on the pine for Rohan F 5/6 maybe?

Mike · 10/03/2014 at 00:48

Im changing players every couple of hours or so, walk away thinking I've got my sc team down pat. Then without even realizing it I'm back on computer rejiggin' my team squeezing every last penny i can, here is goes…

Def: Mitchell, Enright, D. Swallow, Suckling, McDonald, Clurey. Emergencies: Langford, Georgiou Armani

Mids: GAJ, Pendlebury, Libbatore, Beams, Ellis, Tyson, Polec, Dunstan. Emergencies: M Crouch, Wanganeen.

Rucks: Luenberger, Sandilands. Emergencies : Curry, Thurlow

Forwards: Dangerfield, Martin, Roughead, T. Mitchell, Caddy, Rohan. Emergencies: JKH, Merret

$ 50000 left in the bank. Any suggestions community?
Maybe Libba to Rockliff, Trade Ellis to Aish and trade up Sandilands to Minson…

    Mike · 10/03/2014 at 00:52

    Btw, Ellis is Brandon Ellis from Richmond.

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 10:18

    I prefer your team as is over the suggestions you have made for yourself.

    Don't go down to 4 premos in the midfield for sake of a ruckman who si likely to score as many points for 300k more.

    Your current team looks handy and if your happy with the players you have, then stick with it. As I think the structure you've nailed.

@Linca_HotTiges · 10/03/2014 at 00:50

Discuss :

DEF – Mitchell, Simpson, Enright, Suckling, McDonald, Martin (Cluey, Georgiou)

MIDS – Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, Rockliff, Beams, Tyson, Polec, Ellis (Dunsten, Crouch)

RUCKS – Leuenberger, Sandilands (Thurlow, King)

FWDS – Dangerfield, Martin, Gunston, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan (JKH, Impey)

4.4k remaining..

Enright to Hurn
Tyson to Michie
Gunston to Roughy
Leuenberger to anyone cheaper.. (miss out on keeping Leuy by 2k)

    Sarah · 12/03/2014 at 11:28

    I'd leave it as is. You're downgrading a lot of players simply to bring in Roughead over Gunston.

Okay done a bit of shifting around and feel my team is just about set
$85k in the kitty

THE SALTSHAKER · 10/03/2014 at 01:55

Can anyone justify this late night premium 6-1-1 midfield madness?

DEF: McVeigh, Mitchell, Malceski, Suckling, McDonald, Georgio, (Cameron, Langford)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, JPK, Murphy, D.Beams, D.Thomas, Polec, (Dunstan, Crouch)
RUCK: Jacobs, Sandi (Currie, King)
FWD: Franklin, Parker, Pavlich, Higgins, Rohan, McDonagh, (KHJ, Impey)

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 08:23

    Way too heavy and losing those cash cows in the Middle. This season Mid is where the money is to be gain.
    Ruck has no cover if Sandi injures himself again or being rested Currie's job security is slim he has Majak to compete with and King very unlikely to get a game at all, I know he's your VC loophole.
    Fwd very ballsy to start with in that set up, have fun try to correct that through the season, you'll be wasting to many trades.

    Overall the team is too RISKY for my liking.

      THE SALTSHAKER · 10/03/2014 at 14:17

      Yeah was a concept team, very risky. Wont run this

looking at trading the combo of swallow/rohan to clurey/walters or swallow/vince to clurey/ablett, thinking clurey/walters
thoughts are appreciated and taken into consideration

    Sarah · 12/03/2014 at 12:15

    You can't go wrong with Ablett. It's a no-brainer!

      Sarah · 12/03/2014 at 12:17

      Having said that, the Vince/Swallow combo will likely average more than the Ablett/Clurey combo.

Andrew · 10/03/2014 at 07:44

Here’s my team. Please have a look.

McVeigh, J, Mitchell, S. Hanley, P,
Suckling, M, Docherty, S, Clurey, T, (Langdon, T, Georgiou, A)
Ablett, G, Pendlebury, S, Rockliff, T,
Beams, D, Thomas, D, McDonald, L, Polec, J, Dunstan, L, (Crouch, M, Taylor, L)
Pyke, M, Hale, D, (Currie, D, Derickx, T)
Dangerfield, P, Martin, D, Wingard, C,
Franklin, L, Rohan, G, Thurlow, F, (Kennedy-Harris, J, Honeychurch, M)

My only real concern is being a little too light in the Midfield but would appreciate feedback.

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 08:07

    Docherty won't be ready for Rd1 I think he's injured, I'd get rid of him and move McD down back.
    Either pick Tyson, Michie or X-man Ellis in replacement for McD.
    Ruck is a little heavy might wanna downgrade Hale to Sandi and spend that extra cash up forward as your D6 Rookie is a worry Thurlow may not get the nod as a R1 starter.

    Apart from those the team is looking good mate.

      Andrew · 12/03/2014 at 19:39

      Many thanks!

    @RyanRhino14 · 10/03/2014 at 09:47

    i'd say no to taylor and honeychurch, docherty i don't think will play round 1 so move mcdonald to def for him and get someone in the midfield, how much money do you have left over

      Andrew · 12/03/2014 at 19:39

      Many thanks! not Much!!!

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 10:14

    Perhaps trading down Franklin and tradin up Thomas.

    I feel like D Thomas will be the player this year who will make you $70,000 but score in the 70s and you will feel kind of awkward about his price and not sure when to trade him.

    I'm steering clear of that problem from the start by leaving him out. His pre-season form hasn't given me a lot of faith in him and there are just too many good rookie options in the midfield to let him in. Especially when I think those rookies will outplay D Thomas.

    As for Franklin, as I said below in some other comments, perhaps hes more a mid season target because I just don't feel like he has the Sydney system yet.. His score will drop and his points won't be great. Id consider getting him closer to $400k in mid season when he starts to really get what his new role is and how Sydney play.

      Andrew · 12/03/2014 at 19:39

      Thanks for the advice!

rhino · 10/03/2014 at 08:43

Hey guys, team is virtually done, except for fwd line

There is two places open, but three choices for me

JJK, Zorko,Grey,thanks, thoughts?

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 10:10

    I personally like Zorko and Grey there. Both were very close to selection in my side, JJK wasn't even on the radar.

    I think WCE is definetely up for a resurgence this year though and will be in the top 8 for sure. Does this mean JJK's performance will increase? I'm not so sure, there are still quite a few other targets around him.

      Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 13:22

      jjk will be the coleman, if not the top 2 or 3 goalkickers this year for mine Avzmo. Eagles are on the up, and with a much better midfield with the likes of hutchings, shuey, masten all ready to reacha new level, the ball will come to the eagles fwd line a lot more this year

    Sarah · 12/03/2014 at 12:21

    I've gone with JJK. I reckon the eagles are set to storm back up the ladder. He was good last year in a bottom 8 team and I reckon his output will increase as they rise. He does a lot of tackling and the hard stuff which is great for SC.

Hawks2014 · 10/03/2014 at 09:04

Def: Mcveigh, Mitchell, Hanley,Suckling, Mcdonald, Clurey (cutler and Georgiou)

Fwd: Dangerfield, Franklin, Parker, Wright, Rohan, JKH (Impey and Honeychurch)
Any though twouldmuch be appreciated

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 10:07

    Pretty good side, I would be sufficiently surpirsed however if Franklin fired at the start of the year. In my opinion he is a good trade down target mid year as I believe his price will drop, just before he starts to find his feet in Sydney.

    Sydney plays very different ball to what Hawthorn did, and is there anything you have seen from Franklin this pre-season which warrants him having almost 500k spent on him?

    If any other player had played like that for that price he would be out. I think we are just fixed to the notion of Franklin and good value because we think of his past.

    In my opinion, let his price drop, let your rookies rise, and get him in at his low and let him make you some cash and hopefully some great points later in the season.

    love you spelt pendlebury with berry, i think you're too loaded in the midfield and have left you're defence weak but it's up to you how you want to go

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 10:03

    You've definetely loaded you MID and FWD at the expense of your DEF and RUC.

    Could pay off, I hear a lot of people who employ this strat that DEF will be first upgrade. But I see your mid rookies making points on the bench so getting donuts and your defenders scoring low, maybe shift it around so you get more points on the ground.

Bray · 10/03/2014 at 09:18

Hey guys just wondering if I could have some feedback on my team at this stage. Thanks.

DEF: J.Bartel S.Mitchell P.Hanely M.Suckling J.Webster L.Mcdonald. INT- M.Fuller, A.Georgiou

MIDS: G.Ablet, S.Pendulbery J.Selwood M.Barlow M.Murphy D.Thomas D.Tyson L.Dunstan INT- X.Ellis M.Crouch

RUC: B.Grundy A.Sandilands INT-D.Currie T.Nankervia

FWD: P.Dangerfield C.Wingard D.Zorko J.Caddy J.Kennedy-Harris J.Impey INT- S.Kersten M.Honeychurch.

I think that my foward line is pretty weak, would love some thoughts on how I can improve my lineup. Thanks heaps guys

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 10:01

    From what I have seen in most other teams including my own they have gone with 5 mid premos, or 4 plus thomas. There is definetely plenty of midfield rookies who can fill the void if you choose to downgrade D Thomas and say upgrade one of your becmhed forwards to a F5?

    Also Grundy is a POD, not sure how well he will play this year, he will be the #1 ruck, but may just not have great fantasy numbers.

cam · 10/03/2014 at 09:24

Would love some feedback on my team!

Mitchell enright malcheski swallow suckling McDonald Clury Georgous

Dangerfield martin franklin pavlich caddy rohan jhk imply

Thinking of trading buddy to Wright then upgrading Hickey what does the community think?

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 09:59

    Before I had even read the last line of what you said, I was thinking maybe get rid of Franklin and trade Hickey up.

    Then you stole my thunder. Team is good otherwise. I was close to having Malceski in my side but wasn't sure if come regular season he moves back to the back pocket and still produces, but perhaps not to the level we would want out of that kind of price tag.

      cam · 10/03/2014 at 18:59


Sam · 10/03/2014 at 09:25

Should I upgrade Polec to Tyson?

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 09:56

    I would keep Polec, so far hes the stand out at his price. The $30k could be better spent elsewhere, as I'm not looking at the rest of your team I cannot make any other suggestions. But Polec is #1 rookie midfield for me.

Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 09:45

Hey guys, heres my team, after posting will be commenting on a fair few of the above.

DEF: Mitchell S, Hanley P, Dunn L, Suckling M, Webster J, McDonald L (Clurey T, Langdon T)
MID: Ablett G, Pendlebury S, Rockliff T, Cotchin T, Beams D, Tyson D, Polec J, Ellis X (Dunstan L, Crouch M)
RUC: Pyke M, Sandilands A (Derickx T, King M)
FWD: Martin D, Wingard C, Mitchell T, Dahlhaus L, Higgins S, Rohan G (Kennedy-Harris J, Impey J)

$23,100 in the bank, I'm fairly happy with it all, even the rookies at this stage, hopefully very few if any changes ahead of round 1 selections. God a few PODs that I'm fairly happy with.

But definetely up for any critism that can be offered (Don't bother on Higgins, I know the risk, and I have taken it :-D)

    Hawks2014 · 10/03/2014 at 21:26

    Lynden Dunn! Always been on the brink of moving into a 85-95 average player but has been hampered by injuries. David Swallow could be a good pick as he is around that price as he is primed for a breakout.
    Think you need 2 of Murphy, Beams or Thomas but thats just my opinion
    No dangerfield! Most selected player in Supercoach. He is gun player as just a mid but a dpp makes him a lock. Dahlaus could be a nice pod but there are wright, zorko and pavlich around that price

      Avzmo · 11/03/2014 at 17:29

      If you give me the option of Dunn and Swallow at the moment, I'm taking Dunn, he has been scoring off the charts through the NAB Challenge as well as towards the end of last year, Swallow is unproven.

      I believe that Thomas is not worth having in a side, I have tossed with the idea of having Bernie Vince in that spot but I feel the money is better spent up forward.

      I also feel like Danger is a great player and I look to have him in my side as a trade up target, but I believe that Wingard and Martin will only rise in value to around his price where as Danger won't provide that same luxury, all while scoring around the same.

      I've since traded Pyke out for Hickey and traded Rohan out for Wright, as I felt Wright could easily score an average 30 points more a game then Rohan, but feel that Hickey wont be 30 ponts behind Pyke. I see Hickey averaging around 80 which is just fine for me at that price, and I'll trade him up when I get a chance later on.

Ben · 10/03/2014 at 09:45


















X. Ellis


M. Crouch













Z. Merrett


Would love some feedback community. Cheers

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 09:56

    I like the team, a few PODS, I love the pick of Robbie Gray up forward, I just couldn't slot him in. I'm just not set on D Thomas, he hasn't impressed that much in the NAB Challenged and been shown up by many rookies who are $150k-200k cheaper. Perhaps you can invest in another good rookie in midfield to get a better F6?

    Also just be sure to check team selection as there may be a few rookies here who won't get selected.

      Ben · 10/03/2014 at 10:18

      Thanks for the tips mate. You make. Some valid points for sure!

Jerry · 10/03/2014 at 10:04

Ok, I feel like I am ready to lock my team in pending any rookies named. Thoughts on my team are that I have selected players that will be in my final side or they generate cash.

Def – Mitchell, Hanley, Scott Thompson, d Swallow, McDonald, Clurey, (Langdon, georgiou)

Mids – GAJ , Barlow, Cotchin, Murphy, beams, Aish, Michie, Polec, (Dunstan, M Crouch)

Rucks- Jacobs, Sandi (thurlow, derickx)

Fwds- danger, Martin, Franklin, Parker, Higgins, Rohan (Kennedy-Harris, impey)

Potential changes are Impey to Lewis for DPP reasons, Michie to Ellis. Franklin???

Also still not sold on Thompson, but he seems to be a POD judging by teams on here. Also Barlow is not often selected.

Thoughts anyone?

    Sarah · 12/03/2014 at 12:34

    I like the Thompson pick. Would be looking at him myself but for the dreaded round 8 bye!
    I've always liked Murphy but think he's become a bit of a soft target for taggers. Even at this price I think he'll frustrate with his up and down scoring.
    Love the Barlow pick. I'd have but I just can't fit him in to my final side. Will hopefully pick him up throughout the year. You can't start with them all unfortunately!!
    But I've picked my team with the same philosophy… they're either cash generators or I want them at the end.

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 13:14

    scotty t is definitely a big pod, but could pay off for you! wont get the tag ahead of danger sloane and co anymore so he could put out some good numbers this year

    only thing that worries me is that d6. that spot will constantly change and any one of clurey langford langdon etc could all play one week and get dropped or get the vest in others, so its risky to have a player like that as a scoring player.

@RyanRhino14 · 10/03/2014 at 10:10

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 11:19

    First thing I noticed was no GAJ, so I thought where has all the money gone, your forward line is PACKED.

    Question is, because one thing I've learned from recent years of SC is that you want your starting premiums to be there at the end of the year. Do you feel like all the forwards who you are forking out big moolah on will be there for you at the end? If not are you going to be blowing unnecessary trades?

      @RyanRhino14 · 10/03/2014 at 11:36

      i actually think all my forwards will average between 86-120, i did think about bringing in rohan to go from vince to ablett but i think vince will start very well

Azza · 10/03/2014 at 10:42

Cash: $24,500

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 11:28

    You've sunk a bit more money into your defence and forward line then I have at the expense of your midfield. I can understand as the rookies in the midfield look great this year, and not so great everywhere else. But I'm still banking on blanketing the field and the best rookies at all positions will come through.

    You could probably afford to take out a D4 or F4 to upgrade Thomas to a premo M5?

    So many people love Thomas this year for what he used to be capable of. but from what I saw in the NAB Challenge, hes just too shaky on his dodgy ankles and didn't look his old self. Don't get me wrong he will score well occasionally and make some cash (maybe not a lot) but I feel better invested in a premo rookie in his spot who might score 10 points less per game and make $100,000 more then him.

      Azza · 10/03/2014 at 12:51

      Thanks for the advice mate. Cheers

F: P Dangerfield / T Mitchell / J Cameron / J Caddy / G Rohan / SKersten E: L Taylor / J Kennedy – Harris

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 11:23

    Seeing O'Meara is a breath of fresh air, he is a gun and will score well, but couldnt bring myself to pick him in mine.

    Your ruck combination could spell trouble, I dont really know how Blicavs will go this year. If your going to be selecting a ruck for $300-350k this year, you really want him to be $500k+ at the end otherwise its just a temporary selection. If its only going be temporary, why not pick a Sandilands who could get some monstrous (good) scores.

    Also your forward line is very very light on. I wouldnt put too much on J Cameron being so much a key position forward. I mean his ave game might be 3 goals and 10 possies and a few marks for 70 points, hes not going to make you lots of money or lots of points, I'd look elsewhere.

Morning all,

debating over Daisy or Aish as M6? If I take Aish I can upgrade Suckling to Birchall / Hurn or Grimes as D4 or I can upgrade Caddy to a Mitchell / Parker or Dixon as F5.

Dixon will give me some cover if Sandi goes down, just not sold on his form to date.

Thoughts would be appreciated.



SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 11:26

Firstly I like to Thanks Jock and The Crew for their great work and never endless effort in providing us all the info, analysis and insights to build a better Supercoach Team.
And not forgetting the Community of Jock Reynolds Thank You to all who have made an efforts in sharing their knowledge.

1. uDonkey
Coming into my 3rd season in Supercoach, i have learnt so much by being part of this great Jock Reynolds Community. In my 1st Season, I finished 255+K at the end of the season. Last year joined this community and had a big impact in selecting my team 2013 Supercoach team finishing 55+K at the of the season. Now into my 3rd season i think, I have gain an enormous knowledge and I really do feel this season will do much better than the 1st two season.

2. Bye Rounds
Round 8 – 13 Players; 4 Premos – 5 Mid-price – 4 Rookies
Round 9 – 5 Players; 1 Premos – 2 Mid-price – 2 Rookies
Round 10 – 12 Players; 3 Premos – 2 Mid-price – 8 Rookies
Like Barron Von Crow bye strategy, I too have a very few outs in Round 9, it gives me the opportunity to use all 3 trades for Round 8 to prepare for Round 10. For example Round 8 I use 3 trades picking 3 players who has Round 9 bye, that will leave me 10 players out four Round 8. Then 3 more trades in Round 9 picking players that had Round 8 bye, the likes of D Martin, Cotchin, J Selwood, Johnson, Pendlebury and so on. Leaving 8 players out for Round 9 and 9 players in Round 10.

3. Selections
I am staring with 8 premiums (I still consider Beams as a premo) priced above 500K, I have pick 5 players in the 400K-500K price range, the likes Swallow, Jacobs, Dixon, J Kennedy and T Mitchell who all should maintain their price and scoring well. S Shaw, Tyson, Polec and Rohan I'm comfortable of picking at their prices, all had been a quality NAB Challenge performers and will serve my team well to generate cash and promising points potential. My choice of Bench players will may or may not be selected for R1, though i hope they all do so they increase in value to use for upgrades

4. Risks
I had a long look and thought in this team, I don't think I have made unnecessary pick. Sandiland and Dixon are my biggest risk – if ever Sandiland is injured before his price jumps or being rested, I can move Dixon in the Ruck via Thurlow. However if both gets injured and hopefully they don't, cause if this happens, I will be in a very awkward position to replace them both. It's just hard to leave them out of my team. I just feel I haven't seen enough games and game time with Daisy Thomas for him to be slotted in my team. He could very well come off, but I am just not convinced even if he holds up with that ankle of his. I'm confident on Macrae who has impressed me during the NAB challenge made it hard to pass, should generate some decent cash and points, looking to upgrade him mid-season. Caddy may or may not be keeper but I feel safer starting with him, should also gain enough cash for an upgrade to Dusty or Roughie.

So, here it is my team and strategy I am taking into the 2014 Season. I’m very comfortable with it, I'd be interested what The Jock Reynolds Community thinks of my;
uDonkey Line-up
Mitchell, S – Hanley, P – Enright, C
Swallow, D – Shaw, S – McDonald, L
Emerg; Langdon, T – Georgiou, A

Ablett, G – Rockliff, T – Fyfe, N – Beams, D
Macrae, J – Tyson, D – Aish, J – Polec, J
Emerg; Dunstan, L – Crouch, M

Jacobs, S – Sandilands, A
Emerg; Derickx, T – Thurlow, F

Dangerfield, P – Dixon, C – Kennedy, J
Mitchell, T – Caddy, J – Rohan, G
Emerg; Kennedy-Harris, J – Impey, J

$17,400 left in the kitty.

    Hawks2014 · 10/03/2014 at 21:11

    I like Macrae. Put some weight on and grew a few cm in the off season. The reason I am getting him as I am hoping he will replicate Wingard from last year.
    Wingard: pick 6. first season 19 games at 52- one of the factors to Port moving up the ladder from 14th to finals
    Macrae: pick 6, first season 13 games at 61- Could be the face of Bulldogs new midfield that should see them rise up the ladder

      SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 21:43

      That's a very interesting comparison stats you got there Hawks, yes he bulked up during the off season. The reason I have picked him in my side is purely how hard he goes for the ball and always in the pack, and also his stats during the preseason. With 27 disposals and 2 tackles against St Kilda then followed it with 30 disposals and 5 tackles against Fremantle also added 25 disposals and 5 tackles against Carlton.

      Last season he played 13 games in his debut, wearing the vest on a couple of times, and posting five scores over 75, I feel he's going to increase 10-20 points this season, and will play more games too.

Dogs · 10/03/2014 at 11:31

What are people's thoughts on midfield rookies scoring abilities, I'm starting 3 on the field , but not too sure on which 3 out of polec,aish, x-Ellis , dunstan, michie , assuming they all play round 1 ???

(Locking in Aish, and Polec, need a third playing mid)

– which two of Franlin, Parker or T Mitchell

Really appreciate the Community view here

    Jerry · 10/03/2014 at 12:57

    Also Impey v Taylor on fwd bench

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 14:25

    If these are you only options, and want no other critique, I like Hibbered over Thompson, Michie over Ellis, and I don't think Franklin is that great this year, so the other two. And Impey on bench.

New version # ?
Def: Mitchell, Hanley, Grimes, Suckling, McDonald, Langdon (Clurey, Georgio)
Mid: GAJ, Cotchin, Boyd, Dal Santo, Murphy, Beams, Thomas, Tyson (Dunstan, Polec)
Ruck: Jacobs, Sandilands (Derickx, Thurlow)
Fwd: Dangerfield, Pavlich, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan, Impey (Kennedy-Harris, Taylor)

$260K available
Like everyone, unsure of Rookies being picked or not for round 1.
Upgrade Caddy for Martin?
I'm hoping Suckling, Higgins and Sandi make it through till the Bye rounds and then look to cash them in.

Thoughts Welcome…

    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 14:38

    Even with the upgrade to Martin, both forward and defence are a bit shallow, maybe 6 premos in mid is a bit much? In my team I have McDonald as D6 and Rohan as F6, Beams as M5. But each to their own.

      @DavidJamesKenny · 10/03/2014 at 19:17

      I like the thinking with Bruest also. Could be the breakout/through year. I am still not convinced on Franklin, or pav up front but but we will soon see. I know some are fans of Derickx but not for me. Like the rest of the line up.

What is everyone's opinion on a 3 mid-priced ruck structure? How many of you are employing it, and if so, who are you rolling with?


    Avzmo · 10/03/2014 at 14:40

    I'm not employing it but the three at the moment seem to be Sandi, Hickey, Blicavs.

      Branks · 10/03/2014 at 15:52

      Cheers for the reply Avzmo,

      Blicavs is an interesting choice. Higgo loves him, and could be a nice POD, but I personally haven't seen enough in him to select him. And, he is akwardly priced at 360,000.

steve_67 · 10/03/2014 at 14:04

There's some good sides posted with lots of POD's – here my side for perusal.

FWD : Dangerfield, Martin, Dixon, Pavlich, Dahlhaus, Rohan (Taylor, Kennedy-Harris)


    Branks · 10/03/2014 at 14:42

    Really like your side mate!
    Only change I would make would be getting in Daisy Thomas, maybe you can downgrade dahlhaus or Pavlich to caddy and upgrade dom tyson to Thomas. Apart from that very nice team.

    SCdonkey · 10/03/2014 at 17:18

    I'd change nothing with your onfield players mate, I think you've nailed it. Love the Ruck structure with Thurlow and Dixon as your cover and having King as your Dummy for that captain Loophole.

David · 10/03/2014 at 14:20

Grand opening for 3rd season finished 590th last year, team: No Sliding///

DEF: S.Mitchell, K.Simpson, C.Enright, S.Hurn, J.Webster, L.McDonald (T.Clurey, A.Georgiou)
MID: G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, M.Priddis, M.Murphy, D.Beams, J.Polec, X.Ellis, L,Dunstan (M.Crouch, T,Langdon)
RUC: S.Jacobs, A.Sandilands (F.Thurlow, M.King)
FWD: P.Dangerfield, L.Franklin, L.Parker, M.Wright, J.Caddy, G.Rohan (J.Kennedy-Harris, J.Impey)

Going strong in defense and midfield this year and slightly thin in ruck and forward lines.
Biggest risks:
*A.Sandilands but imagine that over 75% of people are too.
*M.Wright even though he has arguably been the most impressive this preseason he might still get those tagging roles which will hurt his SC out put.
*L.Franklin we choose him as a keeper and nothing else because he won't increase in value of $150,000 or more this year. Think i say the same for everyone that all we want is for him to kick straight this year.

      I really don't see too much luxury in putt Swallow in mid, with it just picking best 18 these years I think its over valued. You could push him either out completely or into D to get another forward.

Waiting for team selections to finalise. 339k left in bank for changes if necessary. Main plan is to generate income early and trade up for premiums during bye rounds. Defenders are hopefully going to be running off the back line through the midfield. I also like to pick 2nd or 3rd string midfielders where I see value(beams/crouch). A lot of risk, but we have to gamble to win sometimes.

R: Minson, Sandilands (Currie, Thurlow)

F: Dangerfield, Martin, T.Mitchell, Higgins, Rohan, McDonough (JKH, Impey)

Thoughts? I've decided to steer clear of the $117k rookies in the midfield due to potential JS/vest issues.

Furthermore, I just can't seem to justify shelling out more than $400k for any other forwards when there are proven defenders such as Enright available for the same price whose scoring will not be too dissimilar from similarly priced forwards heavily reliant on scoring goals and taking marks, as opposed to racking up touches around the half back line. There are serious question marks over guys like Wingard, Westhoff, Cloke, Franklin, Pavlich etc. I think the risk of selecting them outweighs their upside. Hopefully 3 more consistent, high scoring forwards emerge before June!

Good luck everybody!!!!

    I like it. The midfield rooks are the best place to make money this year and should score ok as well.
    Not sure how good Thomas will be. Consider Sheils and Macrae for that spot as well.

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 13:11

    very very similar structure to mine so i like it haha!

    only thing i would recommend:

    downgrade webster and higgins to a clurey and rohan or something similar, put mcdonald on as your d6, and use that extra cash to possibly upgrade daisy to a premium gun you wont have to touch all season

      Thanks Ben. Its the first draft where i have had Caddy in. More mid time but seems like his disposal is maybe sus. A bit too much risk with both him and Higgins. Cant afford Roughy so anyone down from him i think.

Ok finally think I've got my structure settled, so here is mine as it currently stands (obviously, subject to change).

Def: McVeigh, Mitchell, Simpson, Suckling, Webster, McDonald (Langdon, Langford)

Mid: Ablett, Cotchin, Liberatore, Beams, Thomas, Tyson, Michie, Polec (Dunstan, Crouch)

Ruck: Leuenberger, Sandilands (Derickx, Thurlow)

Fwd: Dangerfield, Martin, Parker, Pavlich, Caddy, Rohan (Kennedy-Harris, Impey)

Still to be decided:
1. Liberatore v Fyfe
2. Webster only went in tonight. Definitely not sold on him yet. Someone sell him to me?
3. Polec v Xavier Ellis
4. Is McVeigh worth the cash? Would Swallow and 150k to upgrade someone like a Caddy be more useful?

Apart from those points of uncertainty, fairly happy. Finished up near the top last year, but I reckon I'm happier with my initial squad this year. Any thoughts on those four points, or about the rest of my team?

Thanks community,

Based on some recent injury announcements and anticipated role/score changes these are the talented few who are on the Wombats shortlist
No bench players as they're fluid until team announcements

DEF: McVeigh-Mitchell-Enright-Suckling-Webster-McDonald
Mid: Gaz-Pendle-Cotchin-Hodge-Beams-Tyson-Aish-Polec
RUC: Sandi-Sinclair

Hodge will go back early (currently have langdon to facilitate trade) I don't really care about the bye rounds because what I lose in rnd 8 I can make up in round 9/10

how do people rate Dalhlause a good POD or pass?

    Avzmo · 11/03/2014 at 13:08

    I've got him in my team, there are quite a few forwards worth a look in at around the $420k-$460k bracket this year. I feel like he will make some good cash at a very improved Bulldogs side as well as scoring quite consistently.

tassiesfinest · 11/03/2014 at 11:00

Even though I don't have him in my team (yet), surely shaun hampson is worth half a thought as R2 or R3. Would have absolute no qualms about picking him over blicavs. Job security as no.1 ruckman for Richmond until rd 8 = sleep filled nights.

    Hi Frank.
    You have 6 Rd 8 bye Mids in that structure ( 5 of which are Premiums).
    You simply can't leave it like that as you will have to trade Locks out before Rd 8.
    I'd Trade Cotchin to JPK or Fyfe, and Sloane to Smurf, Rocky or Libba.
    That way you will only have 3 number Rd 8 Premium mids missing.

I'm a bit concerned about Luke Parker and Josh Caddy at the moment as i'm not 100% sure if parker will go premo and Caddy have a good price rise.
It would be much appreiciated to hear your thoughts, thanks

    YourOldMan · 12/03/2014 at 14:58

    Had McKenzie last year, wasnt blown away. He kicks out a lot, and chips to himself first a little which is good for easy points. Priddis burnt me too – once bitten, twice shy.

    I've got both Parker and Caddy and am pretty happy with their selection at this stage…

      Sarah · 13/03/2014 at 11:28

      How did Priddis burn you last year? He was awesome after I brought him in cheap! Without the concussion game he would've averaged similar to Libba and Cotchin!!

Edward · 11/03/2014 at 22:16

hey guys! i like the look of Alex Georgiou but i dont think hes been upgraded can anyone give me some info on this?

Need some help Michie or Aish ?

leather poisoning · 11/03/2014 at 22:37

fellow men – looking for some opinions on 3 concerns im currently facing:
1) Lobbe vs Jacobs
2) Wingard vs D Martin
3) Rockcliffe vs Sloane (think Sloane could be a potential great POD?)
4) Rockcliffe/Sloane + $130k, or Pendles and $27k (already have ablett)

Let me know what you think fellas !!

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 00:25

    Lobbe looks ready to step up another level, wheras jacobs burnt many last year and i just dont know if he will get back up to where he was

    martin looks set for more touches and a better gamethis year so him over a wingard who may get tagged a bit this year

    rockliff over sloane

    pendles is ready to explode, may win a brownlow

    Rocksta · 12/03/2014 at 00:31

    Dusty – Wingard will get severely tagged this year ( Dusty is good at shaking a tag)
    Pendles overall, if you will still only have 3 Rd 8 bye premiums

    Or neither?………….

      Kevan · 12/03/2014 at 09:01

      They won't generate much cash, so they will be keepers. Food for thought.

Tim · 12/03/2014 at 02:37

DEF: McVeigh, Mitchell, Enright, Swallow, Webster, L. McDonald (Langdon, Georgiou)
MID: Ablett, Murphy, Beames, Zaharakis, Shiels, Polec, Michie (Dunstan, Crouch)
RUC: Lobbe, Sandilands (Derickx, Thurlow)
FWD: Dangerfield, Martin, Roughead, Dixon, T. Mitchell, McDonough (Impey, Kennedy-Harris)

The plan was based on a view that there was good value in the discount prem mids and rookie mids but far less value in def and fwd. Consequently, stacked the def and fwd lines and got the best value available in the middle. Shiels is probably the big risk (and possibly Zaharakis but both are capable of breakout years).

Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Kevan · 12/03/2014 at 09:03

    Nicely balanced side. Looks strong all over the ground. I'm still leaning towards Parker over Mitchell, breakout years only come around once.

Kevan · 12/03/2014 at 09:28

I'm now at peace with my team. Have six rookies (if you include Rohan) on the field and they will play. Out of the eight on the bench, four are expected to be in Rd1, three are strong chances and the fourth I don't want to play (VC loop-hole-R4). GnR for me feels so much better, though I do have 3 mid prices in the squad (Suckling/Sandi/Caddy). I'm also a strong believer in research to try and locate the 'breakout' player. I have four of these types and I'm expecting (hoping) they should all achieve premium status this season. The only issue I have is that I broke my own rule and placed two 'breakout' players on the same line. My team is as follows, any comments, both constructive or destructive welcome.
Def: McVeigh/Mitchell/Walker/Suckling/Webster/McDonald (Clurey/Georgiou)
Mid: Ablett/JPK/Beams/Shuey/Treloar/Aish/Polec/Dunstan (Ellis/T.Langdon)
Ruck: Lobbe/Sandi (Derickx/Holmes)
Fwd: Dangerfield/Roughead/Parker/Gray/Caddy/Rohan (Impey/JK-Harris).

    Kevan · 12/03/2014 at 09:36

    Suckling should turn into a keeper, Caddy/Sandi won't last the season. Shuey/Treloar/Parker/Gray are the 'breakout' boys to go premium and are therefore keepers. This makes 14 keepers, another part of my self enforced rules. I can't wait to go great or fall in a heap. Just get this thing started.

jazzy · 12/03/2014 at 11:01

hey guys,

I'm after some advice on 2 guys I have lined up in my defence and everyone's opinion on them. Jaensch from Adelaide and bugg from GWS??

advice would be greatly appreciated

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 13:30

    bugg has looked good in the nab cup dont get me wrong, but hes a midpricer i would be avoiding this year, just my opinion though.
    Jaensch is another one of those oddly priced players id stay away from, if you have both, downgrade one to a rookie to upgrade the other to a premium.

    neither will generate a heap of cash or will be one of the best defenders at the seasons end, so locking a premo away in your team whilst the rookie generates some cash will be benefitial

      jazzy · 12/03/2014 at 16:15

      thanks daniel

    little light in the backline with webster in there, if he pays off however, itll pay off as you can put your money elsewhere. and that looks to be in the mids.

    super strong looking mids, love the barlow pick, but daisy and macrae? why not upgrade daisy to a pendles and macrae down to a rookie if that will work? if its not pendles a known sc gun? food for thought..

    rucks and fwd look pretty stock standard, nice work

    dont midn the zaharakis pick at all Darren. looks ready to go bang this year in a big way!

    solid defense as well as a good looking mid!

    ryder is a roller coaster ride, hopefully a good one for you this year. for mine, franklin and pav pose big risk, that may or may not pay off. they are fallen premiums i know, that can bust out 120+ scores, but will they get back to that? who knows.

    good luck!

    YourOldMan · 12/03/2014 at 14:55

    I'd maybe downgrade one of your DEFs and upgrade a MID to another super premium (Pendles/Watson etc)

    Like Zaharakis as a POD

rosco_peco · 12/03/2014 at 13:25

Hi Jock & Crew love your work again this preseason, its been an absolute blast reading and listening to each of you. Can i just say MICK MUST BE MAD!!!

Would love some feedback on my team, currently as follows;
DEF: McVeigh, Mitchell, Swallow, Suckling, Webster, McDonald, (Langford, Langdon)
MID: Pendlebury, Rockliff, Cotchin, Beams, Thomas, Tyson, Polec, Dunstan, (Cunningham, Crouch)
RUC: Ryder, Sandilands, (Thurlow, King)
FWD: Dangerfield, Martin, Parker, Wright, Caddy, Higgins, (Merrett, Kennedy-Harris)

Have $166,800 in the bank for when Missy Higgins gets torn a new one after the first 5 minutes of Round 1. Rookies are not solid yet, obviously waiting for Round 1 teams to come out.


    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 13:34

    like the backline, webster worries me though. been in and out of my team, i think when joey and lenny return after round one he will no longer be needed in the mids = lower scoring potential and output.

    strong midfield but no ablett!!

    ryder is oen hell of a ride, up and down, but no bellchambers could be good for him.. and you!

    very strong fwd line, but as you said higgins could/will go down so that cash will accomodate

    nice team and good luck!!

Hello Community,

I would really appreciate any comments / advice / thoughts on my team below…….

S Mitchell, S Hurn, D Swallow, M Suckling, J Webster, L McDonald (W Langford, A Georgiou)

G Ablett, S Pendlebury, T Liberatore, D Beams, L Shuey, D Thomas, V Michie, J Polec (L Dunstan, X Ellis)

S Mumford, A Sandilands (D Currie, F Thurlow)

P. Danderfield, D. Martin, M Pavlich, J Caddy, S Higgins, G. Rohan (J. Kennedy-Harris, J. Impey)

Salary remaining – $20,400

Really need some thoughts on the below players in their respective positions:

C Enright or S Hurn, went with Hurn because WCE have an easy run (1st 3 rounds – WB, MEL, STK…) and also they have the easy draw this season…..thoughts please

MID: This is a big one i really need some genuine thoughtts on this…..
Libba / Cotchin / Watson…….leaning towards Libba at the moment – Watson is bit expensive, Cotchin has a rd 8 bye….Libba not 100% sold on him to be a keeper??? thoughts community……Please help…..

Mumford / McEvoy / Jacobs…….i have got Mumford (POD may be)……but not 100% sold on him yet…..but in saying that i may actually go with him…..McEvoy is good option but he may be subbed out of the game after 3 QTRS, just like what they did with Bailey last season…..Hale and Roughead to do the ruck in the last QTR????…..just a thought…..not 100% sure they will do that……

FWD: F3 & F4…..absolutely no idea who to go with…..below are some the players i am tossing up with…..

1. L Franklin
2. T Mitchell
3. L Parker
4. M Pavlich
5. R Grey
6. D Zorko
7. M Pavlich
8. L Dahlahaus
I think Jock should have a pole for each position and here what community think……especially with FWD for F3 & F4 Position……

Thank you Community…..


    @RyanRhino14 · 12/03/2014 at 14:34

    i love libba but i'd say no because he plays in perth round 1 and he got a 40-50 point game against west coast there last year, it's up to you but i'd say cotchin, trust what you think, you have 20k left so go hurn but i would say enright if you had more cash, i can only say with you're forward dilemma is trust your gut because i'm looking at the same scenario

    YourOldMan · 12/03/2014 at 14:51

    I'm a Tiger fan and I'm going with my boy Cotch; he's ready to explode this year. Heard whispirs about a niggle though can't confirm at this stage. He should rest forward moreso this year and kicked 4 against the Pies and a couple against the Dons.

    He didnt kick enough goals last year and it's something he'll be focussed on this year – RFC have plenty of mids at the moment too.

    Liam · 12/03/2014 at 19:26

    I couldn't agree with you more about the FWD F3 and F4. I also have Danger and Dusty as F1 and F2 as many people have but that F3 position is really troubling me. I'm tossing up between L.Parker and C.Rioli. If u are happy to leave him out for round 1, he could be a real nice POD. I haven't seen him in that many teams to date.

    I'm also not sold on Libba, at the moment i have JPK at M3 as my gut is telling me he is in for a good year.

David · 12/03/2014 at 14:43

Ok think I'm done? yeah surely, have 13 players i can see keeping all season.

DEF: S.Mitchell, K.Simpson, C.Enright, S.Hurn, J.Webster, L.McDonald (T.Langdon, A.Georgiou)
MID: G.Ablett, R.Sloane, M.Priddis, M.Murphy, D.Beams, J.Aish, J.Polec, X.Ellis (L,Dunstan, M.Crouch)
RUC: S.Jacobs, A.Sandilands (F.Thurlow, M.King)
FWD: P.Dangerfield, L.Franklin, L.Parker, J.Darling, J.Caddy, G.Rohan (J.Kennedy-Harris, J.Impey)

Lets fire up guys! give me your thoughts on where i can improve?

    YourOldMan · 12/03/2014 at 15:01

    Like the Sloane POD. Not convinced Buddy will produce big scores this year; I'm staying away.

    Also – Sauce Jacobs burnt me last year. Seems to only get hit outs (1 point) and isnt that good around the ground with kicks / marks etc.

YourOldMan · 12/03/2014 at 14:48

Greetings community – here's my squad (for now). I'm not entirely convinced about Pav's output this year; any Dockers have any inside scoop on how he's tracking?

Also – have gone with 4 (premium) and 6 (rookie) mid set-up. Seems logical this is where the cash is to be made this year, so taking a punt on the young boys and hoping that my premiums will pump out 120+ weekly.

DEF: McVeigh, Mitchell, Enright, Suckling, Webster, McDonald (Langdon/Georgiou)
MID: GAJ, Pendlebury, Watson, Cotchin, Aish, Polec, Dunstan, Ellis (Michie / Crouch)
RUC: McEvoy, Sandilands (Thurlow/Nankervis)
FWD: Dangerfield, Martin, Parker, Pavlich, Caddy, Rohan (Kennedy-Harris/Impey)

$60K in the bank.

Criticism / feedback is welcomed…

    hein · 12/03/2014 at 17:35

    Hav to get beams in ur team
    N I personally don’t hav pav he will avg 90-95 but fear he will b rested throughout the season

      YourOldMan · 12/03/2014 at 19:44

      Am keen to roll with the 4-6 MID strategy, so can't squeeze him in with GAJ, Pendles, Jobe & Cotch. From what I'm reading the big $$$ will be made in midfield this year.

      Pav -> Zorko? Everyone seems to have him though. Need a good F4&5 POD!

Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 15:20

Hey guys! ive had a good look and commented on a lot of teams in the community and just wondering if i could get some feedback also.

DEF: Mitchell, Hanley, Houli, Swallow, Suckling, McDonald (Clurey, Georgiou)

MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, JPK, D.Beams, Aish, Michie, Polec, Ellis (Dunstan, M.Crouch)

RUC: Lobbe, Sandi (Nankervis, King)

FWD: Dangerfield, D.Martin, Roughead, Parker, Caddy, Rohan (Kennedy-Harris, Merrett)

only the 3.5k in the bank, so not much to play with.
feedback is appreciated, good luck everyone this season!

    YourOldMan · 12/03/2014 at 18:46

    With Dustin Marin playing half back this year they may feed the ball to him more, taking points from Houli. I do like that POD however.

      Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 19:14

      I figure if theyve got martin in a new spot, maybe it might unleash houli a bit further up the ground, we will see! im backing houli to be as consistent as enright of previous years, thanks for the feedback

    BeaglieBoy · 12/03/2014 at 18:57

    6 rookie midfield? I like it….gone 5 myself as listed in next comment. Personally I like T Mitchell over Parker as well….the rest looks good and like most of us we are hanging on Sandi staying fit for 8-10 weeks

      Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 19:16

      yeah ive backed it this year, no risk as all 4 playing rookies and dunstan will play every game if fit, and will make a LOT of cash!

      Parkers ability to kick a couple whilst accumulating possessions has me thinking the other way, mitchell is a future superstar but may get rested throughout the year to manage his rough contested playing style. and i think parker will take it up to a 90-95+ average this year

      yep, once sandi makes enough cash im gonna end the stress and trade him to a gun ruckman

      cheers for the feedback!

hein · 12/03/2014 at 16:42

Any thoughts would b appreciated


Mitchell enright hurn suckling Cameron McDonald

Georgiou Langdon


Ablett pendles Watson cotchin beams michie Ellis aish polec dunstan


Jacobs Sandilands Currie derrickx


Dangerfield gunston dalhaus Wright caddy Higgins taylor jkh

I have $53,000 left I know my fwd is risky but I like it just worried back line is too weak n may swap pendles n Cameron

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 17:06

    too many midpricers for mine. especially in the fwd line (dahl, gunston, wright, caddy)

    watson as m3 may be a bit pricey

    changing the above 2 things may free up cash to put some solid players who will score and play games this year

Sean · 12/03/2014 at 16:55

My team for season 2014. Hope to receive feedback.

DEF:Mitchell, Enright, Swallow, Atley, Suckling, McDonald ( Langford, Georgiou)

MID:Ablett, Pendlebury, Libba, Beams, Thomas, Aish, Polec, Ellis (Dunstan, Crouch)

RUC: Lobbe, Sandi (Derickx, King)

FWD: Danger, Martin, Buddy, Zorko, Higgins, Rohan (JKH, Impey)

$65,000 left. Why has everyone jumped off Atley was all the rage a month ago?

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 17:09

    Atley promises every preseason but never delivers when you need him to. that said, its a new year and this may be the year.

    atley and suckling in the same team is risky! otherwise good looking back line
    strong mids and rucks, pretty common structure in the rucks.
    dont know how buddy is going to go imo. im waiting to see what he does at the bloods, picking him up post bye if hes performing.

Ryan · 12/03/2014 at 17:32

Does anyone think Stanton is a good option?

Dolner · 12/03/2014 at 17:33

J. McVeigh S. Mitchell G. Birchall (T. Langdon)
J. Webster L. McDonald B. Martin (W. Langford)

G. Ablett S. Pendelbury T. Liberatore T. Cotchin (L. Dunstan)
D. Beams V. Michie J. Polec X. Ellis (H. Cunningham)

P. Ryder A. Sandiballs (Thurlow, F) (King. M)

P. Dangerfield C. Dixon L. Parker (J. Kennedy – Harris)
R. Gray S. Higgins M. McDonough (J. Impey)

– Worried about ruck cover, i sense early trades.
– Mature aged rookies is a bit of a theme, very confident there.
– Hoping Webster isn't this years Karnezis, i feel i may've been sucked in.


    Dolner · 12/03/2014 at 17:34

    Bank is $74K

BeaglieBoy · 12/03/2014 at 18:54

So who would u guys put on the field out of these guys and in what order?…I've got
1) Polec
2) Dunstan
3) Aish
4) Ellis
5) Crouch

    Daniel · 12/03/2014 at 19:22

    got exactly the same mid rookies and also michie

    my order would be:

    Polec, Aish, Ellis, Dunstan, Crouch

    i believe the first two are on a similar scoring level, although Polec has shone this nab series
    the next two are also on a similar level, only ellis has shown experience and potential over the years, he can play.

    and crouch should get games and should perform, but i guess the least job security out of all of them

Liam · 12/03/2014 at 19:29

R.Shaw or J.Webster at D5? If Shaw gets a jumper round 1 I'm thinking of jumping on him.

    BeagzBoyz · 12/03/2014 at 22:51

    Shaw will get a jumper every round if he's fit. definitely in the starting 22.

    WombatsFC · 12/03/2014 at 22:53

    Shaw for security and reasonable value increase Webster for potential significant value increase

Hi Community.. Anyone interested in joining a (fairly) competitive league?

Code : 193371 – 5 spots to fill, good luck!

As for the main POD's in my team… Liberatore, Higgins and H-Mac – thoughts?

    Greg · 12/03/2014 at 22:29

    thanks for the invite

Pav or Zorko?

Chris · 13/03/2014 at 00:41

First year playing so comments much appreciated;

DEF – Mitchell, Swallow, Simpson, Suckling, S. Shaw, McDonalad (Georgiou, Clurey)

MIDS – Ablett, Pendlebury, Liberatore, Cotchin, D. Beam, Tyson, Polec, X. Ellis (Aish, Dunstan)

RUCK – Grundy, Sandilands (Derickx, King)

FWD: Dangerfield, J Kennedy, Dahlhaus, J Cameron, Caddy, Higgins, (Kennedy Harris, Impey)

Only $1,500 left. Grundy is obviously a risk and I feel my forward line maybe inconsistent but overall I'm quite happy… One last question, I've read about Captain Loophole or something…. I'm guessing its something to do with double points or something…? Could someone please explain in a bit more depth, thanks.

THE SALTSHAKER · 13/03/2014 at 01:00

1-1-RUCK: Jacob, Sandi (Derrickx, Thurlow)
Fwd: Same as above

    Daryl Prasad · 13/03/2014 at 01:50

    Missing a midfielder…only 9 listed

Daryl Prasad · 13/03/2014 at 02:03

Some advice from last years winner John Bruyn…hope it helps (it helped me a lot by reinforcing that the winning strategy this year will be a lot different to last year):

"The inflated rookie prices are going to make picking your initial side more important than most years I think. I expect we are going to need to use these correction trades to make sure we get on the right rookies before the round 3 price change.

My advice then would be to not start so many risky players that you get stuck with them if they don’t work out for you.

Picking the odd wildcard is part of the fun of the game, just don’t start ten of them in round 1! Make sure that by about round 3 or 4 you are 100% happy with your side.

Another bit of advice is that people shouldn’t totally ignore the byes. This isn’t so important if all you want to do is win your league but if you are going for overall the round 8 bye is a nightmare in the midfield. Don’t structure your whole side around it but just keep it in mind is my advice.

Lastly, try and think out of the box. To win you need to do something out of the ordinary that others aren’t doing. Without a plethora of cheap rookies generating cash isn’t going to be easy this year. Look for value and ignore hyped up players! You won’t be seeing any one of Jack Watts, Jack Ziebell or Jack Darling lining up for TheDimmaWits in 2014."

Pick one of Caddy, Sheils or Macrae

Pick two of Tyson, Michie or Ellis

Thanks 🙂

    Sarah · 13/03/2014 at 12:11

    Currently leaning towards Caddy, Tyson and Ellis

    Peter · 13/03/2014 at 16:44

    Macrae, Tyson and Ellis.

    Macrae's Nab Form is undeniable for me

DJ1985 · 13/03/2014 at 13:48

Please review and comment as you see fit


    Peter · 13/03/2014 at 16:47

    Great team but maybe Hanley over Shaw?

Ryan · 13/03/2014 at 16:01

Hey Community, would love some feedback.

DEF: Mitchell, Swallow, Suckling, Bugg, Webster, Langford (McDonald, Georgiou)
MID: Watson, Rockliff, Liberatore, Cotchin, Murphy, Beams, Michie, Polec (Dunstan, Crouch)
RUCK: McEvoy, Sandilands (Derickx, Thurlow)
FWD: Dangerfield, Martin, Parker, Wright, Higgins, Rohan (JKH, Impey)

Would love your thoughts on the following
1) Who should be my D6 out of Langford, McDonald and Georgiou?
2) Not sure about Watson. Who do you think will have the best score out of Watson, Redden, Mundy, Fyfe, Barlow and Jack? I need to choose one of them.
3) The rucks are really confusing this season, there doesn't seem like there's a standout. I have McEvoy, does anybody think there are better options?
4) Parker or Mitchell for F3?
5) Who should be F6 out of Rohan, JKH and Impey?

Thanks everyone, and good luck with the season!

Paddy · 13/03/2014 at 16:02

Which 2 midfielders? I have Ablett, Pendlebury and D.Beams locked.

What 2 is best?
Cotchin, Watson, Barlow, Liberatore?

I want Cotchin a lot, but worried about having too many out in the bye round.

    Peter · 13/03/2014 at 16:48

    Cotchin and Liberatore

Mebois · 13/03/2014 at 18:09

Hi guys, it has been a frustrating pre-season and i have changed my team countless times but here it is,

Team Name: Mebois

Salary: $85,800

DEF: Mitchell, Enright, Swallow, B. Smith, Mcdonald, Langford (K. Kolod…, Langdon)
MID: Selwood, Rockliff, Libba, Cotchin, Beams, Tyson, Polec, Ellis (Cunningham, Crouch)
RUC: Jacobs, Sandilands (Derickx, King)
FWD: Danger, Franklin, Titchell, Gunston, Caddy, Mcdonough (JKH, Thurlow)

break down of selections.

DEF: mitchell and brainer. swallow is POD and last 7 games last year averaged 108 playing trough mid so could break out. brodie smith could breakout aswell and will probably replace ricky henderson. mcddonald landford and langdon are only good rookies. i have chosen kolo because he fits my structure and i think alot of people will trade down to him so i can play langford for 1 game.

MID: selwood will be top 5, rockliff libba and cotchin could go top 10, beams is a bargain, tyson, polec, ellis have great js and can score well, cunningham and crouch are cheapish and can score well.

Ruc: i think jacobs will not return to 2012 form but he wont be as bad as 2013, i think he will be close to 2012, sandi is no brainer, derickx is only decent rookie ruck pretty much and king is for loophole.

FWD: danger is no brainer, franklin is too cheap, mitchell was a mature aged rookie and i think he wont cop a tag with the team sydney has and has js, gunston will be a bigger part of the hawthorn fwd line with no franlin, caddy will brakeout hopefully, mcdonough jkh and thurlow are best rookie fwds.

thank you

    flapper · 13/03/2014 at 21:33

    backup plan if Selwood not fit for Rd1?

    Even if he plays, I wouldn't captain him, as definitely strong chance of vest or considerable pine

      Mebois · 13/03/2014 at 22:12

      would get pendles or ablett

rosyTown · 14/03/2014 at 10:52

Judging by the rucks I can see here (including my own), the round 10 bye is going to be catastrophic!
Unavailable -> Sandilands, Pyke, Luenberger, Hickey, Ryder, Thurlow, Derickx, Nankervis, Apeness, King, Longer, Holmes….to name a few.

    Liba is a contested freak but I have a feeling Cotch is going to kick 20+ goals this year. The goal kicking mids are the ones you want. Cotch for me.

Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, Murphy, Beams, Thomas, Aish, Dunstan, Ellis, Crouch

Ryder, Sandilands, Thurlow, King

Dangerfield, Martin, Roughead, Caddy, Rohan, Kennedy-Harris, Impey, Merrett

$86, 5000

Feel I have 5 premo's that will be in my side all year, hoping to convert Thomas into a more reliable premo around the bye rounds. Tossing and turning on Ryder and Natanui for the r1 spot but they both play next week so have time to asses.

Mebois · 14/03/2014 at 17:21

hi guys these are my d2 options, which one is better and why:

Hibberd, Hanley, Simpson.

right now i have enright and like him there but i feel my defenders may be a little weak. ty

    sorry, and what do you think about lachie hansan (not as d2), i think he can be a premo, the first half of the year he played forward and the last half he played swingman/rebounding defender and averaged 85 so i think he is underpriced. thanks

KadeK is a jet · 14/03/2014 at 18:30

Def: Mitchell, Enright, Malceski, Suckling, Mcdonald, Clurey (Langdon, Georgiou)

Mid: GAJ, Selwood, Rockliff, Dal Santo, Beams, Thomas, Polec, Ellis (Dunstan, Crouch)

Rucks:Leuenberger, Sandilands (Thurlow, Currie)

Forwards: Dangerfield, Martin, Buddy, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan (Impey, Kennedy-Harris)

Would love some feedback. ANY COMMENTS APPRECIATED. I know it is a risk with Sandilands but willing for it too pay off. Forward line is a bit risky but one of higgins and caddy should pay off. (hopefully both!). WOULD LOVE SOME FEEDBACK ON MALCESKI. I THINK HE MIGHT BE A GOOD POD. Thanks anyways. Please community reply!

    David · 14/03/2014 at 18:50

    Everything looking good not sure about Selwood though try bringing Barlow or Libba to that strong midfield and save some cash

Who else has Langdon at D6 ?

    Dogs · 14/03/2014 at 21:34

    Langdon on the bench….. Thinking about starting a non playing rookie next week as I have Langdon as emergency , lol

      WombatsFC · 14/03/2014 at 22:31

      At least you had him Dogsy. I reckon he'll be the most traded in player before round 2

      David · 14/03/2014 at 22:39

    Made a last minute trade of Barlow to fyfe, then quickly reversed it back to Barlow . Thanks Ross Lyon for confirming it for me

      SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 22:49

      I had Fyfe until the last minute I flicked him for Libba, I hope Libba delivers.

        Dogs · 14/03/2014 at 23:13

        I have Libba too, hope he has a cracker

          Wattsieesq · 15/03/2014 at 10:27

          I've got Langdon riding the pine. I still got 500 last night from Sandi, Penddles, Barlow, Langdon and Beams. Pretty happy with the start but it's a looooong season

            Dogs · 15/03/2014 at 11:35

            393 from sandi, beams , Barlow . Still deciding if I use king at R4 as C loophole as I had sandi at VC , or roll the dice with ablett tonight , or roll the dice again and pick a non scoring defender next week as both C and to get langdons emergency score . Then pick 2 playing rookie rucks and use my defender as the captin loophole ………….. In the end I am leaning towards GAJ as Set and forget captin and pick all scoring rookies to raise $

SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 22:45

Just hoping Georgiou doesn't get elivated next week, I want Langdon score as I have him as my Emergency.

    Dogs · 14/03/2014 at 23:12

    I'm in the same position, Certainly makes a strong case for picking georgiou , although is it better to have a scoring player on the bench until He is ready in lieu of 1 good score this week… And who do I bench out of suckers , Webster , McDonald to get langdons score,lol

      SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 23:37

      Well I dont know about you, I know I'm benching McD just can't see him scoring more than 111. Georgiou might be just that Dummy player I was looking for, not fond of having a Dummy player in the Ruck.

David · 14/03/2014 at 22:48

Pendlebury was Pendlebury and he will get those scores of 99- 130 with out trying. But he looked flat in the last 15 mins of that 4th quarter as were many midfielders for both sides.
So what I'm thinking now after seeing the full 4 quarters with the new interchange rule I have confirmed 2 big not alarming by any means but effect the midfielders ability to 1: be on the ground as much as they have before the rule and 2: Playing off the ball to get some added rest.

This isn't substantial though I do believe this will make 150+ scores from midfielders are thing indeed.

    David · 14/03/2014 at 22:50

    *A rare thing*

John · 14/03/2014 at 23:20

Hi Jock and Community – After tonight's game I have a bit of a dilemma. I had Langdon as an emergency in my backline and with such a good score for a rookie I want to take his score but it means I may have to deliberately miss out on Georgio if he is named next week. Is it worth if for one good score deliberately dropping out a cash cow to select a non playing rookie??

    Rocksta · 14/03/2014 at 23:31

    But I was at the Game and I tell you what, the kid can play.
    Disposal and poise under pressure is at a level beyond his years.
    I unfortunately don't have him…………………….Until next week that is

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 23:43

    I'm in the same boat John, really hope georgiou doesn't get named for next week. But even if he does, I am keeping him in my Bench, and will just have to suck it in and miss out on nice big chunck of 111 points sitting the bench.

Rocksta · 14/03/2014 at 23:28

Sandiballs 127.
Have the 'V' on him.
Is it high enough to cash in as a Captains score?

    Billy · 14/03/2014 at 23:38

    Take it.
    Even if you have Gaz. If Gaz pulls out a 150 so be it, but you will only lose out on 23 points. really not that much.
    254 for a captain is definitely worth cashing in

      Rocksta · 14/03/2014 at 23:42

      46 points, but I agree with you.

        Billy · 14/03/2014 at 23:52

        no 23. (assume gaz gets 150)
        sandi as cpt: 254 + 150 =404
        gaz as captain: 300+127=427

        difference is 23 points ……….

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 23:49

    I have the Big V on Beams who scored 136 and I'm thinking should I take a Punt and gamble it with The Magician or The Dangermouse. If only I had Langdon onfield I would have quickly taken that 136×2 points.

      Pieman1978 · 15/03/2014 at 08:07

      Take the 136 every day of the week & pick a spud ruckman at R4 to put the C on

        SCdonkey · 15/03/2014 at 09:56

        Yeah that 136×2 = 272 + 111 = a healthy 383 points if I decide to take Beams and Langdon score. Now if Gaz or Danger scores well above 150 + Langdon 111 points, you'll get a healthier 400+ points. in saying that it will be a risk, if Gaz or Danger only pumps 120 points. Then you'll only get 351 points a price you get on a risk you take. Decisions, decisions at least I have a week to decide with Danger but with Gaz only today.

SCdonkey · 15/03/2014 at 09:14

I think there are many SC coaches going bananas after last nights Game, who had Langdon as D7 or D8 and his score of 111 points is just sitting pretty in the bench. I for one is drooling for that big TON, are we gonna take a risk in putting a non player on the bench for us to utilise Langdons score and risk missing out on another possible Rookie cash cow.
The other issue is Fyfe who got Subbed late in the game, lucky for me I took him out minutes before the game started. I'd like to get him in just before the bye rounds, but concern is how long will he be managed, I'd hate to pick him and gets subbed off like last night.
Beams came to play last night and KABOOM scored a big fat 136 points I am pretty sure for those who hasn't got him are all pulling their hair or bald by now, for not having him in their team.
Pendlebury started well last night kicking the first goal of the game, after that goal it attracted Crowley to annoy Pendlebury like a fly, as expected that this was gonna happened.
Sandiman vs Grundy was the main focus for me and I'm sure many of you out there had your eyes on these two too. How good was Sandi and how fit does look, ok maybe not that good he did play against Grundy who is young and not as experienced as he is. But Sandi seems to be fit and very mobile, contesting in markings, getting into packs and tackling. He showed no signs of player who is being managed, let's just hope he stay that way for most of the season. Let's not forget Grundy. This young kid will be one of the best Ruckman in the future, I really like the way he runs and carry, though his kicking needs a little bit of work. His tackling and going for the ball is ferocious, I'd keep an eye on him for the next few years.

    throttlefinger · 15/03/2014 at 10:19

    Very nice first-game take SCdonkey.

    Agree with Grundy. Needs a lot of seasoning, which is the norm with rucks, but will be a force in time. 2 seasons I say. Sandi looked very fit. He may just make it to his bye round without stubbing his pinkie toe. Think the skill will come in knowing when to offload him. And as we saw today, Ross will sub out stars unexpectedly. So Sandi could get a rest once Zac returns.

    Not too worried about the loop on Langdon. Is weird that yesterday I was praying that Georgiou makes the 22 now I'm praying that he DOESN'T. Regardless, I think I've found a nice D6 to compliment McD.

    Eager for today's game. Will miss GWS-Swans but set the alarm to watch my Tigers rock out on the Suns.

      SCdonkey · 15/03/2014 at 10:44

      Thanks TF

      Like you, I was thinking the same about Georgiou. If he gets elevated next week, then I will have to suck it in missing that juicy 111 points. Not too fuss if Georgiou gets named, my main goals is getting Rookies who will generate cash and Job security.

      Sandi, Hannath and when Clarke returns, we'll probably see Sandi being rested but for now, let's all enjoy his service and pray his pinkie toe as you said holds up.

        throttlefinger · 15/03/2014 at 10:57

        My only yes/no decision whether cash in on Pendles' score or roll the dice. Mad Mick's rule is take the score if the loop goes for 125+. But since I don't have Gaz and if he beats Pendles score by 20 or more points, I may try it. We'll see.

        Plus it's R1…why not gamble a bit, no?

          Billy · 15/03/2014 at 11:10

          Hey throttlefinger do you recommend putting a non playing rookie for D6 to get Langdon's score or not. It is really doing my head in where I should or not.

            SCdonkey · 15/03/2014 at 11:20

            Billy if you have Georgiou as your D8 I'd wait until what Roos' decision next week, he might or might not be named. If you really want Langdons score then I suggest picking a Rookie (Fuller) that will possibly play later on the season.

            throttlefinger · 15/03/2014 at 11:40

            Agree with SCdonkey. Don't plug someone in there just to get Langdon's score. Fuller is a good pick. Cutler is another that will probably make the 22 at some point.

              Michael · 16/03/2014 at 13:27

              have to disagree here – more than ever before every score counts, imagine losing the $50K by 70 points just because you didn't take Langdon's score when you could've. Quite a few rookie Defs that will get game time further down the track such as Fuller, Cutler etc. If I had Georgiou and he ended up playing next week I would certainly replace him with a Fuller or Cutler to get Langdon's score. Just a shame I'm not in this position – I have Langdon on my bench but not as E :((

                SCdonkey · 16/03/2014 at 13:41

                A fair point Michael, my reason of waiting for Ross' decision if Georgiou gets named or not next week. Basically if does get to play then I will swap him for Fuller or Cutler if they are not named for Round 1, but if Georgiou doesn't play then he will remain in my team, I'm pretty sure he will get games later on the season 102K is an excellent price to be sitting on the bench, than 117K.

          SCdonkey · 15/03/2014 at 11:13

          125+ points is a healthy score to have, I am also deciding on wether or not to take Beams score of 136 or take risk on Gaz, Danger, or S Mitchell.
          Looking in the past 3 years Gaz has never scored above 100 against the Tigers, Danger has been had slow start in the season and struggles a little against Geelong and S Mitchell who has a very good record averaging 120 in last 3 season against the Lions and on top of that he killed it in the NAB1. By looking at their stats I might roll the dice on Mitchell.

            throttlefinger · 15/03/2014 at 11:42

            That's good logic. Gaz is the safest choice of the bunch. Just a monster.

            Was going to throw the C on JPK, as he does good against GWS. But Swans play before Suns-Tigers so won't go that way. May go Cox. Always does well at Paterson. And going against Big Will brings out the best in him.

              Billy · 15/03/2014 at 12:06

              Thanks both of you. I think that I will just leave him on the bench and putt him on field for round 2.

Fraser · 15/03/2014 at 11:28

Hi Community!

Need your input on this last minute question.

Higgins or Caddy?

    SCdonkey · 15/03/2014 at 11:43

    If I had to chose out of them two, I'd pick Caddy purely he impressed me in the NAB challenge as for Higgins only played well in the last practice match before the start of the season. Though I have both of them as my F5 and F6, I picked Higgins as my F6, is just that we have lack of Rookie up forward. If Higgins fails then I will trade him before his price drops to a rookie, the like of Rohan, Impey, JKH.

    throttlefinger · 15/03/2014 at 11:44

    If you have the moola, Caddy. Game has progressed and is slotted in at the right time when Motlop and Christenson are out. So he will be making hand love with the pill for sure.

Dools · 15/03/2014 at 11:38

hi Community, Why have the scores not coming up on the players who competed last night? EG Pendles and sandy and beams???

    Wattsieesq · 15/03/2014 at 13:31
