Supercoach – have they nailed the changes?
As the voice of the people regarding all things Fantasy – it will come as no surprise that I was consulted during the Supercoach 2014 review process.
And it is downright heart warming for this old bastard to see that the crew that provide our proud community the platform to play the game we love – have listened.
Supercoach today announced some important changes to the game in 2015;
We start leagues in Round 2.
Initial team selection and skill has never been so bloody important.
It ends on the second last round of the season
The last round for Supercoach is Round 22 this season. We won’t be exposed to that Round 23 rubbish where half our teams are blown out of the water by Ross Lyon style resting rubbish. Has been a stain on the underpant of our game for several years.
A public knockout comp
A new “Supercoach Cup” last man standing comp. You get thrown in against another random Supercoach player each round till you’re knocked out. Last man standing is covered in glory.
One step closer to true live Supercoach scores.. but not for all
No more relying on live Supercoach score facebook posts.. only for subscribers though;
“subscribers can see how every kick, goal and turnover affects their score as it happens.”
I would love them to provide the live updated scoring for one and all. But I understand that to allow the game to remain strong they need to make a buck. Fair enough.
What does Jock Reynolds think of these changes?
As the spiritual authority and voice of the fantasy population in this wide brown land of ours I would like to officially provide my initial blessing to these changes. They come on the back of announced changes to team structure and ruck scoring that were also widely applauded.
However. While many say I am a brilliant man – I am just one man amongst peers within our community.
What are your thoughts on the changes my friends?
