Community! Lekdog here with some mo’ supercoach news…

It’s the end of the byes but more importantly it’s the end of an era. I say farewell to my good mates Jock, Higgo and Crouching One. But do not despair community for we will stand strong in the face of this adversity. I love you all.

beams or danger?

@wheels_1987

I have Danger already.. went POD and i welcome Callan WARD into my team with open arms. wanted him all season

MC

Beams

Youngy

I'd go Beams

Dave

OK community, time to see how powerful we are.

This has to do with a funding model to sustain Jock, Higgo and Crouching ‘can rum, wehcome’ One (my fave).

I am a Yank, live in Sydney, love the footy after spending 10 years in Vic when first here (1989).

I am happily paying $5/week ($250/yr) for access to premium content in the Herald Sun, the footy news is the only thing I access.

I also am happy to pay the $20 for Asst Coach.

Would I be happy to pay another $2/week ($100/yr) to have exclusive access to Jock and his Team’s wisdom?

ABSO FRICKIN LUTELY!

Can I get 999 other Jock fans to agree and be willing to pay for EXCLUSIVE access?

This will generate $100K. $3/week makes it $150K. Jock, please comment on what is needed to make this work.

To those who think ‘It’s all about the money for them’ and don’t want to pay and continue to get something of value to you for nothing, please don’t get involved in this conversation, this is about finding a way to move forward. I am prepared to pay for what I value, just like everything else I am prepared to pay money for. They add value to people’s lives and enjoyment of the footy, they should be compensated and rewarded.

Who’s with me?

Dave of Ambidisasterous and Swanabees

Dave

Loving all the positive responses below! What do we need to do to progress this Lekdog? How do we set up a fighting fund to demo people’s willingness to put their money where their mouth is? (thanks swans2012). An initial trust account where contributors put in their first monthly commitment? How much does a part time web administrator cost? How much does a part time business development person cost? Who in the community has the nous to contribute to our thinking and strategising? Who in the community is a potential wealthy benefactor? What if $200K was raised? Would that cover what is needed for paid people support (to free up their time)and expenses? Get Jock responding to this Lekman!

Sam English

With you there mate would be more than happy to contribute to keep jock and the boys going, they bring joy and laughter to the great game of footy and SuperCoach

chevy

Here here im in!
We need to set this “SAVING JOCK FUND” into motion!!!!!

Swans2012

I’m happy to put my money where my mouth is, what about a simple pay to listen podcast is pay 2-5 $ for the privilidge. But as trigger says, I think it’d be more about time etc than the cash….

Swans2012

That’s meant to read I’d pay 2-5 for the priviledge

judd0

Sign me up, we just have to find out off Jock and the boys if this is what they want.
We don't know that the money is the main reason they decided to give it up, but if it was, let's make it happen.

Nuggety

I’m in if they’re up for it. Paid $11 to park my car today!..this site is what I would call money well spent.

scrofl

I'm with ya mate!

CHRIS

yes please BANG BANG

hedski

To my shame community as a fifth year sc hack only learnt of this site a few months ago when half the BANG BANGS were gone and joined straight up.
how can this be so underfunded? I spill more of the precious amber yellin at my spuds than it costs to join and would kick in couple extra quid.

Box

I'm in!

UDA

Me in……

Sarah

I'm in!

@wheels_1987

I was a club jock member. That was $8 every 3 months. Not sure how many people were C.J Members but I think there was a few (going by Club Jock group in S.C there is 383 members). $8 x 383 = $3064. $3064 x 4 = $12,256.
$12,256 is a lot of money, but not enough. My vote would be to increase this to $10 per month (as compared to every 3 month) and make it easier to set up. The TINYPASS system I DID NOT LIKE! Surely it would be better to sort out a direct payment system through the website. If Jock charges $10 a month and makes it way easier to sign up, he could easily get 500+ members into club jock. If no one else joined up he would be looking at the following. $10 x 383 = $3830. $3830 x 12 = $45,960. That’s a $33,704 increase to revenue and I KNOW the community would get behind this! If we got 500 Club Jock members that would be a total income of $60,000!

Dave

Good work wheels!

@wheels_1987

cheers mate, math is my greatest weakness, however i had just a full on flow of Mathemagic through my cortexes

Dave

My Jock ish reply to your jock ish response is ‘that is a very jock itch response’!

Timmmy

Agreed

J_Drama

Here, Here! I'd be in…

MOC

Beams or Hanneberry?

@wheels_1987

Beams

Vince the quince

7th 🙂

McLovin

More than happy to cut my Monday coffee bill in half. Can I ask for a half Cappucino?

$2 a week is pittance.

I want my “genital humor” back.

@wheels_1987

Monday Coffee is CRUCIAL
Huge Call, but one i concur with!

crowls

gutted stunning site and community. happy to pay 100 per annum divided however they want it.

Ian

Im willing to donate 10 bucks a week.

@wheels_1987

If all current Club Jock members paid $10 per week that would be $199,160 per year. That would be more than enough to keep the Podcast alive

Simon

Oxley and Tarrant for Hannebery and lambert

Tyler

Extract from one of Chicko's Check In's:
"The once untameable, the once unstoppable, the once unfathomable… the Little Master, he who has been dubbed in an ethereal sense as God, Gary Ablett Junior"
I for one cannot wait for Gazza to come back. I really hope he gets back to pumping out massive scores and returns to his previous form.

Swans2012

Agree! Im hoping we see the gaz of old back, but part of me is hoping we don’t, my mids are full, my trades are low, and I don’t know how I’ll find the cash to get him in! But dam he is mesmerising in full flight! I was just thinking between Sloane/rocky/gaz/sidey/sellwood there is going to be some cheap premos to kick the year off next year!

SuchisFyfe

How many listeners do they have?

Divide that by half to weed out the tightarses and work out how much we need to raise to keep it going.

How about a radio spot, a night show once a week on SEN sounds good.

Swans2012

Just saw I’m up against lekdogs gingers in a public league!

I’m nervous seeing so much ginge in one place….

min0008

Sloane to JPK or Harvey?

Tyler

jpk

@wheels_1987

JPK

Youngy

JPK

Gold Rush

In a nutshell I cannot believe how a radio or TV station has not hooked into Jock, Higgo & Crouching. Fair dinkum they would smash the ratings once the news spread. It would leave all current footy shows for dead.

Ethan

Jock was on a supercoach show on fox footy i believe

David

Agree!!!

David

Right on Dave. I am willing to pay $15 a week (a bit more than just 3 bloody takeaway coffees a week). Count me in! I actually proposed something very similar to your ideas in the Farewell Podcast Comments around 9pm tonight! I hope others in the Community will pay a weekly fee for a highly entertaining, informative and inspirational podcast from Jock, Higgo, Crouching One and Wayno.Sunday nights will not be the same without them!!!!

@wheels_1987

If all current Club Jock members paid $15 a week that would be $298,740 p.a

David

Thanks for your weekly videos Lekdog. I look forward each week to your expert analysis, predictions and humour. Keep up the good work!

@wheels_1987

no Bowler hat yet mate, get on it!

hedski

Love ya work lekdog but gotta butt heads with ya on the gawn v mckernan debate.

150k saved for pitbull couldnt crack adel v 4 good games at MELB and a jack watts fairy floss beard. Both been in system same amount of time I reckon?

hedski

P.S. ziebell v zorko for f6?
Leaning towards ziebell with kangas run home but reckon zorko could punch $hit out of max gawn? Ha.

Norks fc

Would happily pay$10/15 a week forget the free podcast or just a 5 min teaser we have to pay for what we value and by GAj we value our Father our rum can drinking mate and I'll never find out if hig go scores at the church social so let's get together and do whatever it takes Jock we neeeeed you maaaate

Northerner

A suggestion

Jock, Higgo and Crouching as well as everyone else……..

Firstly and most importantly, Google then watch the TED talk by Amanda Palmer “The art of asking.”

I get a sense reading between the lines that the site is for the boys:

1. A lot of fun and enjoyment

2. Takes time and money to keep running

3. Takes time and causes stress promoting the site, finding and dealing with the sponsors and just working out how to keep the bills for the site paid each month.

Nobody minds working on the things you love. I may be wrong, but suggest 1 and 2 above is not the issue, it’s the third point that makes it a labour that then intrudes on life’s balance for them.

Suggest the boys then lay out either or both:

1. How much is required to keep the site running; and

2. What you would want for this site and your involvement in it aspirationaly to be and what would that require financially.

The power of communicating transparently may just create an outcome that surprises you three and us all.

Good luck with whatever you decide and simply thank you for everything you have done to date.

derek

I agree. We are only guessing as to how much it actually costs. I bet it is a lot more than anyone thinks.

Nash

Beams or Priddis community

judd0

I have Priddis over Beams

Danners

Priddis, a more consistent performer

Matt

With Hanley out of the Brisbane, expect Beams to carry more of the load. Beams for me.

Locked and Loaded

Priddis plays Hawks Swans and Freo at Domain where he loves to play! Big games where he will step up and West Coast are contenders. On the other side Beams is flying but I'm worried of his shoulder and the fact he will be all but aloe in the midfield with a run of tough games to come. Priddis by a hair for me

Youngy

Priddis

Gijoel

I’ll be fine for 2 bucks a week for the podcast ! It was so shocking to hear the news Monday when listening to it !!! It’s a national disgrace we can lose a icon like jock and the boys

Chris

If this is about money, surely the best resolve is to put the podcasts on iTunes and charge to download. As all the previous comments say, most would be happy to pay, myself included. I think there’s more to it than $$$. Here’s hoping…

Dave

Great idea!

Swans2012

Agree, if it’s just money a simple download fee covers it I would imagine. not sure how many listen in but would imagine you’d get a significant number willing to pay. I know I would….
I think it’s more to do with time and commitments though… At least I assume it is…

muzza

I wil happily give 5-10 dollars a week to keep the show going count me in just let us know what is needed. It would be a real shame to lose this ,so come on everybody lets dig together and get this done if it can be done

@wheels_1987

Top Job LekDog !
I have a suggestion to help fund future podcasts. Lets get a Hall, or Function center sorted and do a fundraiser. eg: (get the kegs and have a few beers!)
But in all seriousness i have been throwing around some of my own Mathemagic in this thread, but i agree with Northerner. Lets find out what needs to be done, to get it done and lets do it!

Dave

JFDI! Just Frickin Do It!

carlashirley90

Sloane to ???
Have 157k in the bank too so can get any mid but who?
I have Fyfe,Pendlebury, Hannebery, Beams, Danger, Ebert, Treloar

judd0

Yer get Priddis.

derek

I'm going to Parker. But if I had a few more dollars it would be Dangerfield. He kills it when Sloane doesn't play.

Cliffy

Ditto as carlashirley90, Sloane is the main priority for me this week to go (Buddy isn't since he's only serving 1 game and I have Forward coverage in Steele).

But Sloane to Beams or Hannebery community? I'm happy to hear if there are better other options otherwise.

Cheers guys 🙂

judd0

I would go Beams if you can afford it.

derek

Dangerfield scores much better without Sloane. Have a look at his scores with and without Sloane playing.

Danners

Beams is a more reliable option

Pinidu

Thoughts on Hannebery, Priddis and Beams? Will Priddis get the tag? Will Beams output go down after Rocky returns?
Should we be considering Dyson Heppel and/or Ollie Wines?

Tyler

If Priddis hasn't gotten the tag yet I would be surprised. I reckon he can handle it, and as for beams, no-one knows if beams output will go down, as he hasn't played much with rocky in the team. Either way, I would go with hanners

Pinidu

ANDREW GAFF??

Danners

A good POD like B.Ellis, could have problems though if he gets tagged again

Liam

Love your stuff Lek
Community I need your help.
Danger or Hanners??
Or any other mid premo
Thanks in advance

David

Beams?

Liam

Already have him and Priddis.
As well as the obvious choices like Pendles and Fyfe

derek

Dangerfield scores much better when Sloane isn't playing. get him.

L. Gibbs

My defence is- Hodge, Enright, Smith, and Shaw. Who should I get in as my final 2 premos? Have 300k

Peter

Dont know whether Smith can be counted as a premo yet as we are yet to see any big scores out of him. I'd add Bob Murphy and Bachar Houli to your defense however.

JMG

Laird from Crows doing OK too

sam

any suggestions appreciated, I am trading out Oxley this week and am looking to bring in either E. Wood or Docherty…
Thoughts?

choppers

Docherty has a hammy strain…….might not play

Locked and Loaded

Where did you read that?

Derek

I heard that as well. 50/50

Locked and Loaded

On the AFL website but Carlton haven’t even brought it up

beezneez

Am limited to $550K for Sloane replacement.
Am thinking JPK for cash leftover but Scott Thompson has been playing and scoring really well except for one week and his my preferred option. Any thoughts?

Flanno24

Picken or Rance?

Rawkus11

i like Picken

Francis

Hannebery or Parker?

Flanno24

Parker IMO

THEBEARD

Could really use help with my FINAL PLANNED trades (unless for injury as the planned comment)

My trade is locked in the question I have is Hamling sufficent replacement for Saad fulltime on field?

I would have Edwards on bench as cover though his 9 last week makes me uneasy.

I believe Hammling should be around the score with Saad from now though the thing I'm looking at is I can go

Option 1 – Dump Hogan and Saad now (save TWO trades in the plan I have for a premium and Hammling replaces Saad fulltime)

Option 2 – Dump Hogan & a Non playing rookie whos been injured early on and take 2 rookies playing now and then next week swap Boston out move Steele up and pick up my prem the following week while leaving Saad in as D6 and allowing Hammling to stay as cover?

Thoughts guys?

The reason I ask is if I go option 1 it leaves me those 2 extra trades for injuries in future which could be vital at 7 trades at present (would put me down to 3 in couple weeks with FULL PREM and I mean FULL although option 2 would allow me Hammling, Edwards as cover with Steele and Lambert and another cover + Gawn in the forwards for ruck cover?

What way do you guys think?

derek

Hamling isn't good enough to be your D6.

JMG

Your post is a bit confusing mate but gathering u need cash for a premo and can do it in 2 or 3 trades.
I personally would not be relying on Hamling as yr D6. Saad you could maybe get away with at D6 but ideally should be upgraded also.
Saad also has more of a running game so more chance of getting ball, vs Hamling a Key defense player

THEBEARD

Thanks mate.

Sorry if it's confusing.

Essentially run with Saad and Hammling as a reserve with 3 trades left for the year.

OR

Run with Hammling as R6 with 5 trades left for the year.

Deledio is coming in for my forward spot to be finally complete. All spots are covered just the D6 would be either Saad or Hammling and the D's are the weakest scorers so happy to roll with it. Just unsure what way to go…

THEBEARD

Anyone?

JMG

Plan this week was to upgrade Tarrant (currently F6) to Dahlhaus or Goddard. But now with Sloane going down and Buddy suspended dunno what to do!

I’ve got Bont as floating F/M cover but bought him for this purpose and still want another F6 ideally.

team is:

Def – Hodge, Ibbo, Hibberd, Shaw, McDonald, Newnes (hamling, Lever)

Mid – Fyfe, pendles, Sloane, jpk, Ebert, Griffen, Cripps, Parker (Boston, Bontompelli, Adamson d/m link)

Ruck – Maric, Goldy (Reid)

Fwd – Swan, Titch, Dusty, Gray, Buddy, tarrant (Dale, Steele)

10 trades left with $231K to spend

Do I upgrade Sloane to whoever I want and just play Bont at F6 for time being. Means Tarrant covers Buddy this week.

Liam

You could trade Tarrant to Zorko (keeping bont as a M9 F7 cover)
Then trade Sloane this week to D.Armitage.
Or you could wait for GAJ or Rocky in a couple of weeks.
Hope I helped.

JMG

Thanks Liam I had thought of that combo too!

sam

Whys is no one talking about luke parker for sloane? Absolutely dominating, just look at his cores community.

beezneez

I've had him since day one and I assume a lot of other people already have him – otherwise I'd get him in.

Rawkus11

Hey community, sad week for all but life must go on.
I'm looking to trade out Sloane and Martin this week and would like your thoughts on my options

Was thinking either:
Martin to Nic Nat/ Sloane to either Murphy/Picken/Laird to complete my backline
or
Martin to Jacobs/ Sloane to Lids to complete my forwardline

What ya think?

Brooke Richards

Is it worth me trading martin to Max gawn then getting him back for him in 2 weeks?

Swans2012

Don’t think so, 2 trades to make 100 odd k not ideal. Probably better to find a way to get Gawn to the bench, or even mckernan.

derek

If i had Martin in my team, i would look at trading in Luey as my R3. He is priced at $232k so would only cost me $110k.

He has a 11BE, should score well having martin out and will cost you only 1 trade.

Can sit there the rest of the year as ruck backup, or if there is a price increase you can trade him out for some cash appreciation.

brook

I am looking into my crystall ball at my full premo team going into R17:

• option 1 – ruck cover, 5 trades, some B-list premos (eg. rmurphy, jpk, heppell)

• option 2 – no ruck cover, 4 trades, A-list premos (hodges, hanners, GAJ)

Both options come with a mid/fwd swing, the bont and not much cash!

Which path should i travel community?

Swans2012

Option 2- A list mids! Go for glory! Bench cover doesn’t get you up the ladder/ win matches (well it does when your premos go down) I’m going to have a similar trade profile by then, But might sneak some ruck cover in

brook

thanks … my rucks would be goldy and jacobs so both pretty reliable … i could sneak brooksby in but i fear i will need cover for my ruck cover!

Mac

Trade Dumont?

rich guy

sloane to jpk is 1 trade or i can use 2 to go to hannebery

judd0

How many trades do you have?

rich guy

i screwed up i have 6 left so the 1 trade is propable better for me. iv wasted so many trades on sloane and rockliffe incidents i cant remember 🙁

bob

mccrae,,

judd0

Yer just use the one trade mate.

Astounded

dfdf

jvitz

bringing in shiel for sloane this week hopefully she pays off

Mitch

Need a little help this week as I’ve almost complete my team

Shaw newnes Kolodjashnij hodge smith hamling lever Edwards

Fyfe pendles Selwood beams Parker Sloane Cripps Shiel Mckenzie dumont Boston

Goldy Maric cox

Gray dmartin swan Goddard dahlhause Edwards Steele lambert

11 trades left with 350k in chest

Obvious trades are Sloane out but do I go for a straight swap in jpk or look at a hanners/danger/priddis etc

And then there’s hamling/lever as my d6 do I choose to upgrade one of them now or downgrade dumont in the mids before he starts bleeding

Thanks community!

Krazee-Eyez Killa

Will be welcoming Callan Ward into the Krazee-Eyez Killaz this week for Sloane. Considered Priddis but if you take out his 190 odd his average is actually around 106 from memory, which is lower than Ward(again from memory).

Leaves me with just the 8 trades left, which will be saved for GAJ and Rocky, and depending on how B Smith goes he may get the upgrade treatment too

wise old man

What if you take away wards 175?

bob

1o5 avg

Krazee-Eyez Killa

you are a wise old man

Xav

First of all would be more than happy to give all the money to support the podcast

Second I am facing a major dilemma with my team here are the points
1.8 trades left including this week
2. 6 trades are needed for upgrade downgrades f1 d2&3
3. With Fyfe and Neale worried they could be rested for th GF
4. In cash league
5.have Sloane
So community do I hold Sloane and hope he comes good or do I trade to JPK and hope Fyfe and Neale play

General Soreness

Lek – fitting tribute. The community response led by your good self and others has been amazing and I will just add “Ditto” to all those posted above.

Jason

Option 1. Bonts (f6) to Gawn giving me ruck cover

Option 2. Cripps(d8) to Shaw finishing backline but relying on rookie cover for Rocky finishing off my mids.

Option 1 will be cheaper this week than next whereas option 2 should get cheaper next week.

Or should Bonts and Cripps be keepers.

Jason

*Cripps (m8)

Simon

What should you do with Roughead now he is out indefinitely should you hold or trade

LongJimmy

depends on yr circumstance i suppose

Youngy

Need to bring in a Defender to finish off my team Already have Shaw, Higgins, Smith, Newnes and Simpson

Who should I bring in have enough cash to bring in anyone

Astounded

Picken

Jimmy

Hey community! Only have 564k to choose a replacement for Sloane, who should I go for? I was tossing up between JPK or the more expensive Wines or Gaff.

LongJimmy
