Supercoach 2014

This is quick. But it is brutal in its deliverance of condensed wisdom.

Round 19 has kicked off and as this is published Freo and Carlton are half way though having a nice old crack at each other.

Hope your weekend of fantasy footy has started more promisingly than old Jock’s – I’ve made a bit of a selection howler as you will hear. I might have Alzheimer’s disease, but at least I don’t have Alzheimer’s disease.

I love you all.

    3/4 time and Barlow looking good for a big haul… He has my VC

    Agree Jock, looking forward to a full week. Last couple weeks took forever.
    Good luck my community friends!!

    • Derek says:

      I really needed to win my league game this week.

      VC on Fyfe plus Sandi………… And Pav!!!

      • GarglesnarfFC says:

        Same on all 3 for me. At least Fyfes 171 makes up for some of Pav's 9.

  2. Poor Bastard Jock…

    I think that's every Supercoach Coaches WORST nightmare!

  3. Hazey says:

    Fyfe with 171….do we take it? :-/

    Pav…what have you done mate, headbutting elbows for fun?!?!

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      What do you mean "Do we take it?"!

      Of course we bloody do! And a big hi5 all round while we do it! #loopholedeployed

      Almost makes up for Pav getting 9.

    • wes says:

      Hi Hazey

      out of interest's sake only, who are you thinking of using instead?

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Hazey you take 171 even if Abblett’s playing the sandringham under 12’s

    • Sarah says:

      Are you kidding?!! I'd already deployed the loop-hole when he hit 120 early in the last quarter, and then spent the rest of the last quarter with a massive grin on my face!!!

  4. Gilly says:

    Didn't have the vc on Fyfe …..doh. But dodged a bullet by trading Pav out 1/2 hour before start of the game. Swings and roundabouts!

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      You’ve dodged a bullet there Gilly! Think I’m done with key position forwards till do me part from supercoach

      • Gilly says:

        Spot on Pieman, Pav was just too good value when I picked him up but me thinks it should be a box that you have to tick when you log in to Supercoach for a new season. I will not pick a key position forward ( till they become super cheap and I can’t help myself)

      • jockreynolds says:

        Same here Pie/ Stick the fork in the big bastards

    • Derek says:

      I posted my team here during the week and told to trade Pav out to Parker or Gray! Did I do it?

  5. Mangrove Jack says:

    3 played for 408 points. Have VC on Fyfe and C on Pendles. so Pendles to Bench emergency and ShadyAcres into the guts, and very happy to take Fyfe's 171

  6. Supertroopers says:

    Who sits on the bench in my fwd line out of danger, dalhaus, d martin, franklin, gunston, s martin or r gray? I’m thinking dalhaus…

    • Garglesnarf FC says:

      Thats a very nice problem to have. Do you a loophole player on the bench?

      • Supertroopers says:

        A very good problem to have but tough decisions to be made. Most play on Sunday and my emergency loophole plays on say night so it’s not quite going to work out
        Do hawthorn put more work into dalhaus than collingwood do to gray?!

    • MightyDonsFC says:

      Gunston or Dahlhaus, flip a coin

  7. julz says:

    Sorry to hear of your error Jock, but you know who to blame. Ross Bloody Lyon, just when you thought you escaped his curse by having coverage for Sandiballs last week, he still gets you this week! if Lyin' Lyon hadn't rested Sandi last week there would've been no need for you to put him on the bench at all and everything would've been tickety-boo.
    Oh and the bloody stupid split round would not have helped your cause and then a Thursday night game to boot, I nearly forgot to fix my team too!
    I have suffered the Ross curse too by having a donut last week due to Sandi and Ben Brown late withdrawal, also did not buy Fyfe when cheap as chips as didn't trust Ross, see even when he's not resting players the thought that he might still stuffs you in the end!!
    Chin up mate 🙂

    • jockreynolds says:

      Thank you julz for giving me the 'out' ..would love to give Ross the Boss another barrage, but the only fool I have to blame is myself for this one mate. Still learnin after 37 years. Thanks very much for your sentiments!

  8. Badoomp says:

    Is this the lekdog, big ben, pieman show is it?? Every podcast i click onto got to listen to these clowns every week?? They sucking you off or something jock? Give someone else a go ay instead of the same muppets everyweek!!

    • Gold Rush says:

      Got an address that I can send a box of tissues to? Dry your eyes and get on with it.

    • Have you thought that maybe Lekdog, Big Ben and Pieman are the only guys offering decent advice?
      I noticed a few new guys call in also…
      These Community podcasts are majestic. You need to lighten up Badoomp.

      Unsavoury comments. Not needed.

      Love ya work community.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday there Badoop, got every call sent in into the podcast this week old son, send one in yourself and you're more than likely gonna get a gig. No suckings off etc goin on.. maybe the odd wristy… but certainly no suckin off

      • Badoop says:

        No worries Jock I was actually offering to get on my knees; no need to put me on the podcast but I'd love ya to give a spank for being naughty in your forum you big gorgeous bear you.

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Badoomp. The JR community has helped no end with my SC improvement. I like to give back where I can. I think you will find Lekdog & Big Ben would be feeling the same way. If you have a problem with our advice dont listen to it. If I were a dog & you were a flower I'd lift up my leg & give you a shower.

      • Gold Rush says:


      • badoomp says:

        Shouldn’t you save that for your bogan beast of a missus? Heard her call through and she sounds like she could chew through glass! No wonder you spend so much time on sc

        • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

          Saw you mum the other day. I reckon she’s a top bloke. Who else could produce a complete flog like you. Back to gutter you knob

          • badoomp says:

            Meow…..bit sensitive sweetie or was I a bit too close to the mark…..
            Gutter, from a guy who calls himself itchy nuts pieman? Haha, Yep, you’re classy!

  9. julz says:

    Ok guys still struggling with the 'Who to Replace Hibberd With' decision. I could get Mitchell which is playing percentage as most other teams in my league will probably do this. This also leaves me with $50K and with only 2 trades left this could come in useful if god forbid more injuries/late withdrawals strike.
    However looked at Mitchell's draw in SC finals, Melb the first week but then Freo, Cats and Collingwood, has me a bit worried.
    Brodie Smith from Adelaide however as a ripper draw but would only leave me with about $3K which is not ideal or is money just pointless this time of year, with 2 trades left would be only sideways ones now to cover anyone out.

    • Liam says:

      hey Julz, ive also got this conundrum. also thinking smith but then no money to use elsewhere and need to fix up a midfield issue. need to do some calculations before i make my trades but thinking smith with good run home. good luck

      • MarcusJ says:

        Ive sideways him to S Fisher from the saints. two games and two tons. owned by 0.5% of teams.

        gotta roll that dice

  10. Gra says:

    Ambrose, Kersten or Impey as F6?

  11. Liam says:

    jock, just heard the podcast. so much thanks to you and all the guys that make it possible to hear the podcasts. so sorry to hear your hurt re big sandiballs. whats worse, he puts out a nice score and any points wood scores should be negated with that bloody last minute game losing kick (yep i'm a hurting carlton supporter). good luck with the rest of the round Jock, Liam

    • jockreynolds says:

      No worries at all Liam! Must admit its been difficult to deal with the Sandiballs affair – but I live to fight another day 😉 Have improved to a bi hourly anxiety attack now.. on the mend

  12. MarcusJ says:

    fyfes 171 has the arousal curve off that charts with the vc on him

    that and big sandiballs makes 479 from two players.

    all down hill from here hahaha

  13. Garglesnarf FC says:


    Seedsman out of Pies side due to injuring himself at training. Langdon to be named as his replacement.

    Might help those with Langdon on the bench, or planning on loopholing him.

  14. Mozz says:

    need to make a decision before the game tonight, it's going to define my finals!!

    One player in the top 8 in my league has Smith, no one has fisher, so who will have the higher scoring output in the final 5 weeks?

    Thanks for your help community 🙂

    • BCHawks says:

      I would go Smith. He has proven himself this year a great scorer and a POD and whilst Fisher has had a good 2 weeks his history shows that it is very unlikely that he will keep up these high scores.

    • MightyDonsFC says:

      Smith definitely

      • Mozz says:

        i'm just a bit worried in having too many Crows in my team, just if they have an off game coming up
        Already have Sloane, Danger & Jacobs. Is having 4 crows too many?

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Struggling with the same decision Mozz. Leaning towards Smith. But only just

    • Glorin says:

      I was pondering same conundrum.
      Wanted to go Fisher, but my balls aren't big enough.
      Head said smith, but I listened to my wallet.
      Brought in Birchall.
      I need to do one more upgrade that will be done next week and that extra 60k will make a difference there.

    • WombatsFC says:


  15. Kev says:

    Harvey or Gray final upgrade in the fwd line

  16. Matt says:

    Have 270k in the bank and 5 trades left what is the best option?
    Bring in Goldstein for Cox
    Bring in Ryder for Cox
    Bring in Ryder for Cox and McVeigh for Suckling
    Bring in Naitanui for Cox and Kennedy for Thomas

  18. The Vampire says:



  19. corza4 says:

    who do I get for Hibberd, Malceski or Hanley

    • Jack says:

      Malceski for consistency, Hanley for huge scores

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Hanley. Awesome form. I’ve had them both all year. Safe picks but Hanley can score massive

  20. Jack says:

    Danger or JPK for vc?

  21. RooBoy says:

    Hi Community,
    K Simpson or B Smith as F6?
    Then relegating Jaensch or Burgoyne to the bench with loophole possibilities.

  22. Trav says:

    Hi All.
    Need a bit of advice. If you could give a reply that'd be great.

    Who would you tip to score more this week…

    A) Dean Towers (SYD) (… Towers is not starting sub)
    B) Sam Lloyd (RIC)


    • BCHawks says:

      I'd go Sam Lloyd as Richmond are playing GWS so the ball is likely to be in the forward line a fair bit.

      • Trav says:

        Cheers for the reply BCHawks. Stuck Towers on the pine, happy enough with chances of Lloyd outscoring Towers 47. Good luck for the weekend mate!

  23. Derek says:

    First PAV, now Buddy.

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Think the SC gods are telling us something about key position forwards

      • derek says:

        i traded Buddy out and brought Parker in. Have to win this week and couldn't afford to sit Buddy on the bench (especially after PAV's effort).

        Happy with Parker

  24. Jack says:

    Any rookie downgrade options?

    • WombatsFC says:

      Probably not not if you need them to play for 4 weeks straight. These are playing this week and below 200k
      Def: L.Thompson, T.Golds,
      Mid: A.Woodward, J.Crisp,S.Blease(fwd/mid),
      Ruck: C.Wood
      FWD:H.Louis, M. Honeychurch (mid/fwd)

  25. BCHawks says:

    who to bench to get Parker's loophole score Roughie, S.Martin, Zorko, D.Martin, Danger or Gray. I could also do Sloane or Libba in my mids.

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Roughie BC most inconsistent of the lot

      • BCHawks says:

        Yer that is who I am leaning to it is just that Roughie could go big down in Tassie against the Dogs.

        • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

          If the weather here is anything to go by put him on the pine

  26. The Mullet says:

    Roughie. I've had him all year. Apart from a couple of really good scores he has been disappointing. BUT, I'd wait to make sure Danger starts for the crows first. Its very unlikely, but after the knock to his knee last week I'd like to be certain he isn't a late out.

  27. julz says:

    well looking like I’m gonna get smashed in every league thanks to me stupidely not having Fyfe and everyone else deploying the vc loophole on him. Not to mention a donut thanks to Bloody Buddy and a crap vc score from JPK.
    In desperation I’m going with Waynos drunk ramblings and his hoping his time machine didn’t go to the wrong universe, captain Paddy come on down!!

  28. big aggots says:

    What's going on with champion data's love affair with ruckmen? Pyke 130 odd and not named in the best, Ryder so-so and 117. They believe Pyke had more impact on the game than anyone? Parker included? Time to address a few things for 2015 boys, starting with rucks.

  29. Donavan says:

    Need to decide on a potential trade or two. Going for league wins in the finals.

    Team is as follows-
    DEF – Swallow, McVeigh, Malceski, Hanley, Enright, Schoenmakers (Firrito/Tippett)
    MID – Pendlebury, Priddis, Beams, Bartel, Cotchin, Johnson, Goddard, Miles (Shenton/Acres)
    RUCK – Naitanui, Sandilands (Lycett/Lobb)
    FWD – Dangerfield, Gray, D.Martin, Zorko, Dahlhaus, Roughead (Franklin/S.Lloyd)

    4 trades remaining, and $20,500 in the bank

    Considering the following-
    1. Firrito to Birchall (leaves 3 trades, no cash) – but think Birchall will assume his normal role
    2. Shenton to Honeychurch (to make cash & keep swing) & Firrito to best Def under $550k) leaves 2 trades
    3. Shenton to Honeychurch, swing Bartel to Def, and trade Firrito to the best Mid under $550k – leaves 2 trades

    Appreciate thoughts community. Also suggestion of players to acquire.

    Thanks in advance.

  30. David says:

    I know the diff in SC and DT scoring but gee i wonder wtf is up with SC this year concerning rucks

    20 mins into the 3rd N.Naitanui DT 58 SC 94 ??? Wtf

  31. Mr DJ says:

    Out: suckling

    In: Hanley / Mitchell / Fisher

    And why please

  32. David says:

    Fisher no why: not a proven 90+ scorer this season, yes 2 good scores of late but the could hurt during finals. A 80 to 85 at best.
    Mitchell yes why: is a proven premium, dual position and will be 95+ for rest of season
    Hanley yes why: best defender going around in last 3 rounds but keep in mind he has performed well above his avg in last 3. Though should still avg 88 to 93 for rest of season with maybe another huge score still to come.

  33. The Vampire says:


  34. Tman says:

    Rubbish saturday courtesy of swallow, del santo, johnson, martin and danger. And yes franklin is on the field. Luckily the governor scored ok.

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      That was a handy back up Tman. Plenty had no cover for Buddy. Well played

  35. Dean says:

    I have a question and need a answer FAST.
    I have used C Cameron as my emergency in defense however he did not play. Now because Selwood is my VC and score 148 I want to make him captain by using the loophole.

    My query is can I swap Georgiou in my defense to Hanley and put the Captain on Georgiou while making Hanley my second emergency in defense?
    Will this work or do I end up not getting Hanleys score as the emergency because I had C Cameron as emergency in defense even though he didn't play?

    Your answer will be greatly appreciated.

    • RooBoy says:

      Hi Dean,
      That won't work as you will pick up the lowest emergency score of he 2 which is a zero from C Cameron.

    • Gold Rush says:

      Did a similar thing last week – works fine as long as the 'zero' is not playing.

  36. Mr DJ says:


    Where there are 2 emergencies are selected in one position and only one of these is required, the lowest scoring emergency will be used.


    Emergencies scoring 0 will not be considered the 'lowest-scoring' and will not be used.


    players who are actually named and in the starting 22 for any match AND score a 0 for any reason, will NOT be replaced by an emergency. Their 0 score will also have an effect on their value, being recorded as having played a game.

    if not named and not play than not counted… hanley as E will work

  37. Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

    Think Miles was tagging Ward yesterday. That’s a worry going into finals. Do we ditch him or keep the faith

  38. michael says:

    Can anyone back up the late out of Sam Mitchell? Need to know before Lions game so I can swap Honeychurch from mid to fwd with Zorko, Zorko will then be E for Mitchell and I already have Ambrose as E in fwd line to cover HChurch.

  39. michael says:

    That is bloody annoying – why can’t all teams be confirmed at the start of the day ffs? No backup for Mitch as I couldn’t risk moving Zorko to my mids bench in case Mitch was named. Also, on AFL team site they’ve listed Mitch as omitted but says no late changes? What do they consider as a late change? Mind you Zorko’s sitting on about 15pts at h/time…

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Agreed. The Vampire called no Mitchell on the plane. That was yesterday. Leaving him as a late out is BS. The Vamps mail has been spot on this weekend. He’s better than the media

  40. michael says:

    Was looking at 2500+ but now will be lucky to hit 2300!!

  41. Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

    Keep up the painful work Vampire. Best to hear it from you first. The mailman of pain

  42. Wattsieesq says:

    Looking to hit 2500 this round. Thanks to Fyfe, Barlow, Parker, Nic Nat, Jellwood, Beams and Sandi. I my even have knocked off the top side in one of my head to heads.

  43. Adam says:


    Pav and Mitchell -.-

    • SCaddict says:

      I received the same order with a side serve of Buddy to top things off ha ha.

  44. Danners16 says:

    2370, Wayno… You let me down!!! Only if I had Fyfe as my captain, I would have made the finals in one of my leagues, but just because you said to put the C on Dangerfield, I missed out by 0.24%.

  45. BCHawks says:

    2300 for me with a Doughnut from Mitchell and some terrible scores. Had Caddy and Roughie on bench and was unable to use their scores! Oh well the win put me 4th in my main league.

  46. Brad says:

    Shockers from Zorko, Boomer, Swallow and had Sammy Mitchell a late out. Average games from Dusty, Dalsanto, Danger. Can’t complain with great scores from Fyfe, Beams, Sandilands, Ward, Parker, Selwood, Stef and ok output from Malceski, Mcveigh, Pendles, Rocky, Sloane, Bartel, Birchall and Lobbe.

    Should jump a bit from 323 this week.
