General Soreness

So Good!!!!! All Hail the BOWLER!!!!!

Great Vid Lek, likely to inspire some talk of an Oscar, Emmy or at least a Logie,! #thebowlereffect


Bowler, bowler, bowler! #kidbowler

Absolute gold my friend! Throtts is on a plane over here to shake your hand, and probably steal the bowler!

Pauly Walnuts

Lek my man, will we see you in 16 ?



Magical Lek. Pure brilliance. Even better than I dreamt.

Thanks General for providing the prop to end all SC props.

And thank you Lek for all that you’ve done for the community this year.


I think Goldy will be a moral as Captain this year but I had my VC on Pendles so I will be absolutely STUPID not to take his score as my captain, so I will gratefully take Pendles 140 odd.


I meant Goldy a moral as Captain this week


Didn’t see that woeful effort from Geelong coming. Had Selwood VC, Enright, Bartel and Motlop all in my team.


Ouch that hurts mate, thats massive considering those 4 players you mentioned had a projection to score 434 yet they only scored 239.

I'm glad I chose Pendles as my VC


Are you sure you don’t have a handbag in the closet Derek being a Hawks supporter with so many Cats in your team? MEOW


Good stuff Lek, another year done and dusted.

I've had a shocking start to the round, need to make up around 100 pts so it's going to come down to the Captain's choice. Opponent currently has Goldy, who has the best chance of scoring more than him?

Options are Shaw, Gray, Sloane or Dangerfield. The only problem with Shaw is that he plays before Goldy, with the other guys I can choose my C depending on how Goldy scores. But if Shaw is the best option then it doesn't really matter. Thoughts?


Bloody hell Pendles final score 155 – 310 thank ya very much. I'll take that.

Although I think Goldy will score HUGE this week against the doggies inconsistent ruck system.


I traded Fyfe for Pendles. I'm absolutely stoked with his 155!


Great work lek. Lookin spiffy.

Won my $5 vc sidebet sidey vs motlop.

Reckon I’d be mad not to take his 149 as cap.


Take the 76 from kolo, or take a punt on malceski?


if ur in a safe spot to win, take it.


Dangerfield, JPK, or priddis captain??


seb ross tagged selwood well last week, JPK might be in trouble but should still do pretty good, however danger is the best pick for c




+1 Priddis will stand and with no real tagger from Adelaide he should do even better


Hey fellas,
Who to trade in for FYFE??
Mundy, Sloane, or anyone else??


Sloane dog


JPK or Hanners Captain this week???


Hanners. JPK slack against lesser teams.
Saying that saints will push them.


got karl amon on the bench…

Please Help

With grand finals on the line,
who out of B Smith or Newnes should i bench so i can get Malceski (108) also
who out of Danger, Sloane, Priddis, JPK or Armitage should i bench for Amon (133)


Bench Priddis because there are rumours he wont be playing tomorrow.


Bench newnes. Smith hitting form.


Ditto Priddis


OK it comes down to

Lever JPK McDonald


Smith T.Mitchell Neale +84points( exact difference between caps)

Captains gone both got Danger and Mundy.


Gee…. Your season resting on Lever!


Na his. Sittin pretty hope mitchell isn’t sub


Can use JPK or Neale as captain or just take Goldy’s not great 102.. Not sure..
Won’t know how safe I am cos opponent has plenty of syndey, saints & also mundy.


Hannebery or Danger for Captain?


I’d go Danger. Saints were good at shutting down Geelong last week and hannerbury might be one to get the tag of the Swans midfielders


Season comes down to this….

Me: JPK, H. Goddard & 525 lead. (Can captain Neale or JPK or take Goldy’s 102.

Him: Sloane (c), Hannerbury, Titch, Roberton, Montagna, Mundy.

Need Sloane to have a quiet one


CanNeale blow out a big one? Will Mundy get tagged?


Am I stuffed?
Me: Danger, Sloane, Newnes, Hanners, JPK and can put the skipper on Danger
Him: R.Knight, Danger, Nic Nat, Armitage plus 274 points infront


Who gets the captain outta jpk, Fyfe, sandy or gaff



Definetly Fyfe, he should star today from the sidelines. Will expect him to poll 3 votes for sure


Hahahah sorry mate bit of a brain freeze


I'd go Sandi


Danger, priddis or JPK captain??






Had one of my worst weeks of the year. 2231 and lost all my GF.


Unlucky Derek, you can certainly be proud of your rank anyway.


Thanks. Rank is 71st now


Bad luck Derek, you were right up there man, I scored 2298 and won both my GFs….. best SC season ever for me. Currently 921 overall.


Iamme, that is a breakout year for you. You should be looking at becoming a premo next year


It’s a fine line isn’t it Derek, 2251 had me winning 4 of 5 gf’s! That includes 1 against you ;)!!

top hawk

Ended up with 2337 this week and won my GF. The team held up for the big dance. Happy days!!


I scored 2,299 points and won my grand final!

top hawk

Good isnt it!! Winners are grinners :-))))


Oh yeah! First time I’ve won it too. Thank you everyone, I don’t think I would’ve done it without your help.


Woot woot. RobDogs won 10 out of 10 Grand Finals. Best year ever and ranked 234 overall. Bring on 2016.


scored a 2498 which was good for 152nd overall in the round and won all 8 GF's. All that with Robbie Gray as captain.
Currently sitting 1342nd and looking like im about 120 points outside of the top 1000.

Happy with my season.


Well there goes another season of Supercoach. I would like to thank Lek, BVC, Patch and Chicko for the great articles you guys did this season and the community for helping out. A bit disappointing to see the podcast go as well as Mad Micks, and Mr Crimmins articles. Hoping this isn't the end of the site.
This year for me was like last year, a great start getting into the top 1000 early but falling back to the 7000 mark late, but I still won a couple of GFs.
Best starting picks-Goldstein, Hodge over Hibberd, Life over Ablett
Worst picks-Bellchambers, the Prince, going with Griffen and Heppell instead of Steven and Dangerfield
Best Trade-Getting Gawn
Worst Trade-Too many to list
Congrats to every one who won their GF, and to Hezza's Dogs who seems like he is going to win it
See ya until 2016 preseason


Hezza's Dogs and a lot of other teams in the top 10 still have Hodge & Fyfe, meaning they don't have trades left and he relied on maynard and lambert to cover last week. With Swan missing this week and maybe a few others, it could still be a close race to the main prize. I was able to trade both hodge and fyfe last week, and I've still got a trade to deal with Swan this week, I'm just not close enough.


Dam geelong killed me this week. Had Motlop, Enright, bartel & Selwood VC all in my team and they all spudded.


2,308 this week. Only in one leauge this year and won the GF after going undefeated through out the league. Sitting at 841 overall. Hopefully I can hold that and finish in top 1,000. I've got one trade left so hopefully this weeks carnage won't be that bad. I don't have anyone from Freo in my team, so I've dodged that bullet.

I've really enjoyed this year even if the podcasts have stopped. I hope this community continues next year as it is an extraordinary community.


Thanks to Lek, Barron, Patch and Chicko for their continued efforts in providing quality content through out the year.

I'm sure 2016 will be better.


I would like to say a big thankyou to everyone in the community. I love my AFL and supercoach, but living in Sydney doesn't allow me to share my passion with like minded people, this community did.

I hope jock is ok and wish to hear the great man again very soon. The podcasts were one of my weekly highlights, not just for the gutter humour, but also for the supercoach wisdom.

Last year I was ranked about 8k, the years before that around 30k, to say this year was my breakout year is an understatement. I'm currently ranked in the top 100, this could only be achieved by being part of this great community. I finished #1 in New South Wales !

My season started back in January when I wrote the following Rules:

1) No Hawks
2) Only midfield players in Forward line (prefer DPP)
3) No key position Defenders
4) Start with the best 10 players (best 3 in each position + ruckman) – pay the price
5) get the right rookies
6) Look for Fallen premiums
7) save trades

I bent a few of these rules, but generally stuck to them.

I'm going to add a couple more rules for next year;

8) Don't pay any more for a player than their original starting price
9) ALWAYS look for DPP trades, especially multi steps in one trade


Well done Derek. Just a word of warning though, the ranking still goes for one more round, so make sure you set your team this week or Chuong might get you.


Does anybody know whether Bontempelli will be a forward next year?


Extremely unlikely in fact no way. With the bulldogs forwards like Stringer, Dickson, Boyd, Redpath they will never make Bonempelli a forward.


Surprisingly won my gf. Opponent hadn’t scored under 2500 for a month and he pulled out a whopping 2094. I managed 2309, not bad considering no trades for last 6 weeks.

Good luck next year community, hope you crack top 50 next week derek.

Mad monday beer o’clock time.

I N Pieman

My season was looking in big trouble ranked 20k & bottom 4 in most leagues heading into the byes. Fast forward a few months & 6 titles & some from dead last. Love the wisdom that comes from this place & hope it continues. Good luck for 2016 to all. Still a good chance to crack the top 1000 this week again. I’d be wrapt if that happened

The Ranger

The bowler at last!!!!!
Marvellous way to end a season Lek, thanks for everything.
Thanks to all the regulars for another fantastic year of advice and good humour.
Jock, if you're out there listening somewhere, thanks for the ride, love ya maaaate.


Sc finals league for tragics 820151.


Thanks Lekdog and all the rest of the team. It's been a lot of fun.

Wishing you all the very best and hopefully you all make it back for 2016.


Good news for us Supercoaches next year, the sub rule has officially been scrapped!


Gone back to 4 interchange. The days of lone wolf ruckman are gone.


Thank Gaz the SC GFs were last round : )


Glad I kept 1 trade up my sleeve. Godly needs to be replaced. Already have Jacobs.

top hawk

Got a full side on the park for last round! After winning my league, it's just about final rank this week.

Good luck to all players challenging for the cash.

dustbin feltchers

good luck to those in cash contention…big thanks to lyon and scott…good work Reliables..keeping paddy ryder as cover for goldstein..could be a genius move..amazing how many people have shaun "never again"higgins….we need u back jock…my year turned to the proverbial when u left…


I started and finished the season with only 9 players. Shaw, Newnes, Kolo, Simpson, Pendlebury, Goldy, Gray, Swan, Dusty. What a season!!!

top hawk

What a performance by Tom Mitchell tonight. Incredible. A must lock for the 2016 SC season.

You in Derek?


I didn’t have him this year, with some regret.

I can’t see him in my team next year, not enough value. The Bont maybe.

top hawk

Congrats on your ranking of 76. That is no mean feat. In fact, to me it is brilliant.

My final ranking tonight is a comparably modest 6815. I am stoked with my final ranking, as this was my first year playing Supercoach. To end up in the top 3% at years end beats all my expectations.

That said, Jock, Higgo and my favourite man "Crouching" (Dayne Zorko and Taylor Walker….welcome!!) did help me enormously at the start and held them all year.

It is a shame Jock and his mates have fallen off the radar during the second half of the season. (Besides weekly "money ball" updates of course $$$$$)

At this stage, I may be searching for 2016 guidance in Supercoach in a less opportunistic forum.

Come on Jock! Hope you get it right next year.



I'll be scoring around 2350 to 2400 im happy with that this week.

top hawk

Great score. There will be no next week.
Good luck next year!


Story of the year reflected by this round – stumbled in at 1913. Will see my ranking finish around 21000 – certainly not the position I anticipated given top 10000 finishes in the previous 2 years. Again finished without trades at the end, this time 6 rounds out. Frustrating given I finished with over $3.3 million worth of players sitting on my bench in the final round, along with 2 on field donuts worth another $900K. Oh well, as they say in the classics, there’s always next year! Have a great off season folks, really hope the site continues next year and many more in the future!


I've got to be happy with my final ranking I started the round at 921 and finished my year in 659th position with 2351 with Pendals as Capt , no Goldy and no trades left to cover him.

Thank you to everybody for keeping the site going and remaining interesting after the departure of the boys. Lets hope Jock and co can get it together and this site will continue next year…..Otherwise I guess all good things must come to an end. Its been a great ride and I have enjoyed my time here for the past 2 seasons.

thanks again everyone.


Scored 2,312 and finished 666 overall. Pretty happy with that. Thanks to all the contributors this year with either articles or advice in the comments section.

Bring on 2016!


Lek your work has been great to hold up the flapping tarp but man if the 3 imego's don't return next year me thinks this site will see more tumble weeds than a tumble weed factory that is sponsored by tumble weeds. Did I mention more tumble weeds?

Where are you Jock

Don't worry, I'm shore we will still get the regular money ball posts next year. 🙁


Oh yeah Hawthorn!!!

Into another GF.

Go you good things.
