That was the general theme of Round 4, with mediocre scores seemingly the flavour of the month. Most of the Community felt the wrath of the SuperCoach gods in one way or another.
There were plenty of highscoring players, it was just a pity not many of them were in our actual teams. It was all very depressing.
But on a positive note, CoachKings went absolutely off with plenty happening across 40 venues throughout SA and Victoria. Highlights included one bloke, Chris, who made the mistake of taking his Missus along for the ride.
She promptly outscored him.
Nat “Teen Wolf” Fyfe (141 SC)
The rest of his side is crap, but there is no doubting the majestic genius of this man. Has dripped only 12K from his starting price and won’t get much lower. Those hoping to pounce on him for a big price drop will be disappointed. A SuperCoach beast.
Zach Merrett (123 SC)
Has started the season like a man possessed and now looks a musthave in our forward lines. Currently averaging 116 and has been very consistent so far. Can see him smashing up Collingwood on Anzac Day, too.
Jarrad Waite (129 SC)
How long can we continue to ignore this hulking forward for? Is currently the overall topscorer in SuperCoach and has been absolutely dominating. Will suck plenty in, especially with a Steven Mayless Gold Coast in his next match. But in the words of Admiral Ackbar…
Honourable mentions – Luke Shuey (150 SC), Pearce Hanley (148 SC), Alex Rance (146 SC), Sam Mitchell (141 SC), Callan Ward (137 SC), David Zaharakis (129 SC), Dan Hannebery (129 SC).
Matt Priddis (late withdrawal)
Big Prid hurt his owners when he withdrew late on Friday night. Against a pathetic Richmondside, he would have been like a pig in mud and no doubt would have knocked out a massive score. Instead his owners had to turn to the likes of Ryan Davis or Connor Menadue to save their sides, both of which were disappointing.
Robbie Gray (74 SC)
Was very frustrated throughout Port’s diabolical performance. To add insult to injury, could be rubbed out this week for a hit on Callan Ward behind play. Never stopped trying but just couldn’t get going. Still a gun. LATEST.. $1000 fine.. FREE TO PLAY. *fist pump*
Robbie Gray.. is FREE TO PLAY community!

Tom Mitchell (71 SC)
Lured many in after a stellar opening three rounds, but the bubble had to burst at some point. Battled away manfully, but just wasn’t at his best. Will bounce back, however.
Tobias Greene (110 SC)
If we are following current trends, he is due for another crap score this week. For his owners’ sake, lets hope it doesn’t happen. Had 27 touches and six tackles in a dominant GWS side. But can he back it up?
Callum Mills (84 SC)
Put in his best performance of the year including a stellar last quarter against the Crows. Looks to be hitting his straps. Kudos to those who held him.
Daniel Rich (114 SC)
Helped inspire his side to a famous victory against Gold Coast. Played primarily through the midfield, which would excite his owners. Watch his role when Rockliff and Beams return, though.
Jason “Hamstring” Johannisen (91 SC)
Was absolutely killing it before he did his hammy while kicking a monster 55metre goal. Looks to be out for an extended period, meaning his owners will be required to execute a forced trade this week. Pity.
Tom “Papsmear” Papley (24 SC)
Was utterly disgusting. How can you be so good in the first two rounds and then so bad in the next two? He played almost a full game and was a bloody trainwreck. What’s worse, many people, myself included, traded him in and played him on the field after his strong start, only to have been rewarded with scores of 50 and 24. Disgraceful.
Sam “Inefficiency” Gray (51 SC)
Has bled 59K from his starting price and is driving his owners to drink. Only 16 touches. Shit efficiency again. Those who selected him over Zach Merrett at a similar price at the start of the season would be absolutely kicking themselves.
