RD19: The Heroes, The Villains & The Damned

Published by Jock on

Big Carl CoachKings Community

It was a round of milestones, Community. Our fearless leader Jock Reynolds was present to proudly watch Boomer Harvey break the overall AFL games record on Saturday night.

Although 427 matches is a commendable effort, Harvey still has a fair way to go if he wants to break Jock’s famous senior matches mark, which sits at a staggering 927 appearances.

It is believed to be a world record and boy will it take some beating.

Other milestones to occur in the AFL on the weekend included Corey Enright breaking the games record for Geelong, while Jimmy Bartel clocked up 300 matches and Freo legend Matthew Pavlich reach the 350-game mark.

Unfortunately only the Geelong pair are fantasy relevant, and they both produced very solid scores against the Dogs. Speaking of the Dogs, those poor bastards took another hit with Libba going down injured after a prolific first quarter.

In other SuperCoach news, Danger and Pendles smashed it again this week (no surprise) while other stand out performers for Round 19 included David Mundy, Alex Rance, Dan Hannebery and Rory Sloane.

Next week we hit the finals in our leagues and the competition really starts heating up. Good luck to everyone who has been good enough to earn a position in the top eight.

Gary Wilkinson hit the Noble Park Football Social Club on Friday night. And I bet he’s glad he did. He belted out a ripping 1167 which stood up across the whole weekend as the highest round score. $1000 for Gazza thank you very much.

CoachKings Noble Park Football Social Club

The Heroes

David Mundy (152 SC)

After enjoying a stellar 2015, Mundy has struggled to find his feet this season. Injury, form and the absence of Nat Fyfe have not helped his cause. But he showed how good he can be with a beast-like display against Sydney, despite his side getting comprehensively outplayed. Had it 44 times at 75 per cent efficiency.  A very appealing POD in the midfield for finals.

Patrick Dangerfield (144 SC)

Is putting together one of the greatest individual SuperCoach seasons seen since the great Gary Ablett was at his peak. Getting sick of writing about his brilliance, to be honest. Danger is currently averaging 133, with only the Little Master registering a higher average in a season (on three different occasions, mind you) in the history of SuperCoach.

Scott Pendlebury (140 SC)

Many who did not VC Danger on Friday night got out of jail thanks to a supreme performance from Pendlebury. The Rolls Royce of SuperCoach is as smooth as they come and has registered just two scores under 100 this season. He is the epitome of consistency.

Honourable mentions:
Stevie J (149 SC), Jamie MacMillan (143 SC), Rory Sloane (141 SC), Josh P Kennedy (137 SC), Robbie Gray (134 SC), Eddie Betts (133 SC), Jackson Trengove (132 SC) John Butcher (132 SC), Jack Watts (131 SC), Heath Shaw (129 SC), Rory Laird (129 SC).

The Villains

Marcus Bontempelli (79 SC)

Tagged by Guthrie, The Bont failed to replicate his excellent late-season form on Friday night. Still had bursts of brilliance, but was unable to sustain it all match. A rare poor game in an otherwise brilliant back half of the season.

Jeremy Howe (58 SC)

Just his second score under 85 since Round 6. Howe has been impressive this season playing off of half back, and has been very consistent after a slow start. Clocked up five tons in row in the middle of the year, but has only raised the bat once in his past seven matches.

Josh Gibson (52 SC)

Hawthorn are a champion side and have plenty of great players. One thing they don’t have is individuals. Blokes go out of their way to be unselfish in this outfit and this may be the reason why we haven’t seen many standout SuperCoach options from them this season. Gibson is a prime example of this. Has had his good games, but does not have to go out of his way to put up consistent SuperCoach numbers, provided his side continues to win.

Honourable mentions:
Tom Rockliff (82 SC), Trent Cotchin (78 SC), Jack Viney (65 SC), Dane Rampe (60 SC), Jasper Pittard (54 SC).

The Redeemers

Alex Rance (145 SC)

Had been down in recent weeks after a good start to the season, averaging just 88 since Round 5 with only two tons in that time. But had a ripper on Saturday, despite the fact his side got absolutely killed. Won his position, took plenty of contested marks and had 24 touches. Not bad for a key defender.

Dan Hannebery (144 SC)

Back to his best. Was everywhere against the Dockers, playing on the inside and outside, getting hard-ball gets, providing plenty of run and setting up multiple goals. Had it 41 times in a dominant display.

Todd Goldstein (118 SC)

There’s no doubt by Goldy’s lofty standards, he has been a little flat the past month or so. But he looks to be working back into some nice form if Friday night’s outing is anything to go by. Let’s just pray North don’t rest him in the coming weeks.

Honourable mentions:
Daniel Rich (115 SC), Grant Birchell (115 SC), Leigh Montagna (101 SC), Chad Wingard (100 SC), Mark Blicavs (97 SC).

The Prodigies

Archie Smith (96 SC)

Another appealing ruck bench option. For those of you that don’t have Naismith and still have trades up your sleeve, this bloke is your man. With Brissy in the doldrums, there is no reason why Leppa won’t give him more opportunities for the rest of the season, perhaps playing in tandem with Martin. Was highly impressive in his debut match, and was arguably his team’s best player.

Sam Menegola (77 SC)

On the bubble this week and a tasty prospect for those looking to paint the fence – going one down, one up to obtain another premo. Looks to be the best midfield rookie option we have seen in quite some time this season. Mature-age players often seem to have the ability to adapt to AFL level quicker. With scores of 97 and 77 in his first two matches, is set for a serious price rise.

Rupert Wills (85 SC)

Don’t know a whole lot about this bloke. Played an outside role in his debut AFL match, gathering  17 touches at 70 per cent. A solid first outing.

Honourable mentions:
Sam Naismith (105 SC). 

The Damned

Tom Liberatore (72 SC)

Was on fire before copping an ankle injury in the second quarter. Expected to be out for several weeks. If you still have him on your books, time to give him the chop. Lukey Dahlhaus at $440-odd grand could be a neat straight swap.

Sam Jacobs (21 SC)

Another to cop an ankle injury, leaving him in serious doubt for next week. Usually highly durable, Jacobs owners are now faced with a tough dilemma – hold or trade. The number of weeks he is ruled out for, plus trades left and ruck bench cover will be defining facts in this decision.

Nick Malceski (50 SC)

Remember when this guy was the highest-scoring defender in SuperCoach a couple of years ago? Looks a shadow of his former self.

Honourable mentions:
Brodie Smith (70 SC), David Zaharakis (41 SC).

That’s the weekend that was. What’s on your radar as we have a look at Round 20?

Scored 2370 (with Stef's donut) and still dropped a 1000+ places. It's definitely the pointy end of the season.

Leppa is dumb

2331 with stefs doughnut ://


Somehow managed 2,493 with Stef's 0, won one of my league games by 2 thanks to Sloanie.


i scored 2,456 and only went up 241 spots

very difficult time of year


Pumped out a 2604 with Matt Boyd on the sidelines this week. Torn with what to do in regards to trades with 3 left, possibly one up/one down this week to upgrade a premo to an uber premo. Maybe Shiel to Selwood? Geelong have a great run home with Essendon, Richmond, Brisbane and Melbourne in their last four.

I N Pieman

Thanks Libba for your probable season ending injury. And leaving us with 382k to play with. TURD. Banned for life list. How can you score with that haircut anyway


bit harsh mate, the kid is an animal!


A lot of these Rd1 bargain buys like Libba, Barlow, Wells, Zacka and Hall have burnt us at the end of the day.

It was good whilst the premo output lasted but I guess nothing lasts forever.


I disagree with the part regarding Wells, sure he's missed a couple of games, but hes only scored under 90 on three occasions this season, thats a pretty good return for a starting price of 243k


Wells was a good pick if you traded him out when he maxed out in $$$
thats what i did

anything else makes him a bad pick


theres a lesson here
but 95% of us will do it all again next year!


haha the pain is real
i traded him out during his bye, much to the disgust of my workmates now

Shake n bake

Ranked 170 have 5 trades left I'm thinking Davis to Hannebery
That would leave me with Cripps at M9 other trade will most likely
be any surprises that fall come Thursday night. How does everyone
else look like coming into the first week of finals??

The Ranger

Davis to Hannebery is a great trade and Cripps at M9 could be a nice POD.
I climbed into the top 1K for the first time on the back of 2518.
Got 3 trades and only 6K.
Should be ok in my leagues this week so I'm thinking I might trade Keays down to Menegola to raise some cash so that I can make the last two trades count.

Shake n bake

I have Patracca & Naismith on the pine in my fwd line so if no big outs this week will most likely upgarde Patracca to another premo also have nearly 300k in the kitty.

The Ranger

Wow! Trades AND cash! Nicely done mate.


S&B awesome mate, do you have Cripps?

Shake n bake

Yep brought in Cripps for Libba! What a week to do it hey!


You're incredibly well placed Shake! Smart buy getting Hanners now, not going to be this cheap again.


Good trade, but if you want to make a move up the rank, maybe go a POD like JPK. You have cover if he goes bad one week


Wines to Sloane my trade for this week. Will leave me with 4.


Any possibility to get the Vino to M9? I was hoping to move him on too, but now I'm not sure the upgrade will be worth the points vs the cost of a trade.


I have lots of cash bit sadly my mid bench is worth nothing (thanks Jack Trengove).
So my best bet is Wines to Sloane and Trengove to Dahlhaus. This will give me cover across all lines except ruck with three trades in the kicker.


Steeeve I like Dahlhaus however if you can afford Cripps bring him in, Carlton have played Adelaide, West Coast, Swans and Hawks and he has scored 102, 103, 137 & 118 and his next 4 games are against Saints, Lions, Melbourne and Essendon he will score massive and be a better choice then even Hanners in my opinion and a great POD

Good Luck mate.


Hadn't considered Crisps, could be a good pod. Sloane also has a good run home…


bad trade


Respectfully disagree. I have five left and lots of money. Wines has tough games coming up whereas Sloane will cruise home.


Went 99th to 91st this week, thought might go backwards with 2496, so pretty happy, had boyd, lids and hall on the side line hoping for 2/3 of those guys to come back and jacobs only 1 weeks out. Could of shot up the rankings if it wasn't for jacobs 20 odd. Still really trying to sit tight with 3 trades as decent coverage in greene, naismith and collins but getting itchy fingers.


Will look at Dahl maybe for cox and swing Naismith into the ruck while sauce recovers, (was my POD vs goldy n had averaged more since I picked him up rd 15 until this week!) n we can only hope with lids n hall, but once/if they are back I'll have 8 premos (counting Greene and hall) in fwd line that I can swing mid. Will be listening to the casting of the Pod for some hot tips!


Need some help community! 3 trades left ranked 90th.. Not sure if I go for 10th or leagues..

Thinking Jansen to mengola and Menadue to Dahlhaus or should I hold…

Danger Pendles Hanners Sloane Rockliff Parker Ward gray- Jansen greenwood trengrove

Martin Zorko Merret Montagna wingard Franklin- Menadue phillips


How far back on points are you from 10th? Reckon that gap dictates which path you take.


350 points so have a slight sniff…


thats pretty tough, all about getting the right captaincy I'd say. Placing top 100 is a solid effort so I'd probably try to solidify that.


good trade


Hold Jeremy Howe or trade to Gunston (will lose fwd/def swing)


Swing is crucial so HOLD


Community, what to do with libba?
I only have 80k in the bank, im thinkin out of of dalhouse, duncan or scully?
Any ideas community


Hopefully they rest Danger and give those peeps who dont have him a chance in the next game!


Bang bang
Petracca and Hall to Merrett and Dahlhaus
One trade left
Have cover in mids, fwds and def

D: Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Shaw, JJ, Savage (Collins, Austin)
M: Danger, Pendles, Rockliff, Priddis, Hanners, Parker, Neale, Ward (Trengove, Phillips, MacP)
R: Gawn, Gomdy (Grimley)
F: Martin, Merrett, Wells, Zorko, Roo, Buddy (Dahl, Long)

Ranked 3700
This is my first year playing competitively for rank and not too bad considering I usually come about 90 000th

Up against The Phantom in my league this week in top 4 and really want a win

Thanks for all your help this year community

The Ranger

Wow! Nice one Shem! Bloody good luck, we'll all be rooting for ya!


Go Shem.


which one for libba, dalhouse, scully, duncan
dalhouse- worried about reinjuring his injury
scully- POD and good run home
duncan- Pod and very good run home with bombers, tigers, lions and demons
any ideas community


I jumped off Duncan last week so he's bound to go huge soon.


thoughts on seb ross?


An ok option for the price if that is your max.


dont get him


Libba to Motlop


I have had Motlop since day one, DONT do it mate the guy is way to inconsistent, I actually benched him this week and had the Emergency on him because had he of scored another shit 50 odd, I would have then traded COX to Naismith but because Motlop scored 108 I didn't bother trading in Naismith.

Bring in Dahahlaus if you can afford him, he in way better and more consistent then Motlop


Need a hand guys. Need to trade Libba with only 1 trade left and 19k in the bank. Wait one round and hope Dahl drops below 400k or swap now for Ebert or Armitage just in case Dahl doesn't go below 400?


dahl will drop, breakeven of 160


your going to have to hold for 1 week
Armitage would be a good POD and just hope that he actually gets a decent score


2520 with Stef Martin Donut!


who was your bench?…….top effort though


Had Wyatt


what a wasted score , could have done heaps better
cannot believe you dont have a back up ruck


Hi fellas (aka Wayno's voice!)

Any ideas guys on twerking……i mean tweaking this side boys?
Rich & Hanners have been dicing with death the last month, but someone (late out) always throws a trade spanner in the works. They are now safe, locked and reloaded
Cant really paint the fence at this stage, looking for POD….any suggestions, gladly welcomed

Ps Last 3 trades: Boyd to Enright – Hall & Petracca to Z.Merrett & Clarke

R: GAWN – MARTIN – Nankervis

2 trades left $118,800 sitting 678th


Unless there's Thursday night carnage,I'd sit on my trades this week


Good work shemm, following with interest!


4 trades left only $3k in the bank and ranked 18th overall. If by some miracle Petracca outscores Dahlhaus by 48 points thjs week it will be a straight swap. Or do i push hard and use 2 trades this week to get an extra premo and definitely have the cash for dahlhaus next week.
Alternatively, do a Steven Bradbury and hope everyone falls over at the finish line?


I would burn one trade to make some cash, as you won't be able to do 4 good sideways trades with little cash. Then just sit back and go bang as needed. Dahl is likely ~400k after next week if you want to save more cash.


Menegola IN
cash up


How likely is Boyd to play this week community?


Reckon he'll be back this week. Dogs play North this week so they need their best players out there.


highly likely


Trade Boyd or Bartell in for Smith or K.K?


I'd probably go Bartel who doesn't appear to be carrying any significant niggles. Hopefully Boydy's achilles tendinitis isn't too bad and he can play this weekend but there has to be some level of elevated risk there.

Geelong have a super soft SC finals draw including the Dons this weekend and then later the Lions in the SC prelims so a lot of Cats should go huge in those games. Although the Doggies remaining draw isn't too bad either.

As to who you get rid of out of KK or Smith well flip a coin. Both have been fairly dismal this season although Smith has the 7pt higher average so maybe KK is the one to go.


Cheers SC.
Those 2 will cost me a league flag so need to move one of them on this week. It doesn't appear that they are getting any better either.


I'm envious that you have available trades and a healthy enough bank balance to be able to execute that upgrade Rocksta.

The cupboard is bare for the ole Addicts trades reserve!


Thanks SC.

Will only have 1 trade left after this week and as such will have my fingers and toes crossed for the last 3 weeks like most others.
Will have to carry Smith as my D6 for the rest of the season I'm afraid, as my last trade must be kept for Injury.


Ended up going Boyd over Bartell for the following reasons:
– Boydy will spend time in the guts with Libba and McCrae out, and Dahl a few weeks away from his best.
– Really worried that Bartell will be rested for a week leading into finals with their easy draw. I reckon he'll miss the Gabba trip, which is SC prelim week ( assuming I make it that far).
This does however mean that I have to trade Smith instead of KK. As you said, however, They've both been crap this year.


not sure if Boyd will play this week. heard that boyd and suckling have been ruled out again this week


horrible trades
do none of the above

Good Move

Thinking of bringing in Zac Dawson for Tom lee, good move or bad move?


bad move, tribunal tonight



Pauly Walnuts

Who should I bring in – Gray,Parker,Kennedy,Cripps,Neale or Steven ? – already have Danger,Jelwood,Hanners,Rocky,Sloane,Priddis & Pendles, Thanks


Neale…….been solid all year


You know who I'll say 🙂

Since round 2, JPK has scored less that 100 only 4 times. His sub 100 scores were 95, 97, 99, 99.

125 ave over last 5……

Dispite my efforts, he is still only in 5% of all teams.


Agree with Derek, JPK is in red hot form at the moment


has been in red hot form for the past 5 years.


Menegola JS?


Probably the best JS out of the rookies at the moment


Community, any ideas on trades, i have 2 trades left with 80 k in the bank
def- shaw, simmo,docherty,laird,pittard,gibson(collins,lee)
mid- danger, pendles, priddis, shiel,sloane, parker, hanners, LIBBA(mathieson, macpherson, trengove)
ruc- gawn, goldy(goertz)
fwd- dusty, merret, montagna, riewoldt, j kennedy, zorko(phillips, beech)


Libba and Trengove out
Move Phillips into mids
Scully or Duncan and Yarran in
Gives you cover on all lines


Alright, got two options but no idea which to go with so thoughts are appreciated

1. Trade Libba to Motlop
2. Hold Libba for this week, play Mathieson on the field and then trade Libba to Dahlhaus once he drops to 400k


Option 2 for me.

Motlop is hot & cold, I would much prefer Dahlhaus, and Mathieson is an adequate stock gap.



Good Move

4 trades left thinking of going Petracca to Selwood and McCarthy to Dahl. Ranked in the top 500, placed 1-4 in all 10 of my leagues. Leaves 97K in bank


Good Move, Good Move


what your team look like

Good Move

Def: Doc, Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, Gibson, Laird ( Collins, Lee)

Mids: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Parker, Sloane, Priddis, Shiel, Rocky (Petracca, Joyce, Stewart)

Ruc: Gawn, Goldy (Loersch)

Fwd: Martin, Merrett, Montagna, Franklin, Greene, Wells (McCarthy, Phillips)

4 trades McCarthy to Dahl and Petracca to Selwood or Petracca to T. Lynch for McCarthy and Dahl to Petracca?


Should I trade boyd to doch since my opponent has doch?


Boyd should be playing this week


yea bring in Z.Dawson


2 trades left and $51k. Naismith at F6, Petraca F7 swing to M9. $5k short to grab Dalhaus. Made finals in all leagues with a double chances in 3 leagues. Wait until next week or go Petraca & Trengove to Dalhaus & Menegola now?


Assuming you can use one trade to get Dahlhaus next week, I would say hold.


Thanks jezza. Menegola tempting on the bubble though as bench cover, given Trengove can't get a senior game. Will hold for now. 2 trades needed for injuries given the carnage this season.

Top hawk

Thank you to all players in the inaugural "Guns and Rookies" league for sticking fat.

Ranked 174 after Rd 20.

Bloody stoked.

Bring on the finals!

Cheers in advance

Hi community, would love your help and thoughts.
I've had big Stefan Martin $467k all year and wasn't happy with my choice until he became the soul ruckman approx 5/6 weeks ago. His price finally looks decent, but after having the weekend off and young Archie having a ripper debut I'm afraid his scores will go south again.
I have the trades and coin to say hello to Goldstein who I thinks bloody cheap and on his way up again.
Community do I hold on to my POD in Martin (no other top 8 team in my league has) or cross out Goldsteins potential monster score (all other teams in my league have)??
Hope this all makes sense.
Cheers in advance.


I'm in the same spot, worried about his point potential if they let Archie ruck as well.
Goldstein is pretty cheap too

Shake n bake

I'm lucky to have Naismith playing early I'll have the emg on him see how he goes if he scores under 80 I might pull the trigger and sell Martin to goldy. Just have to wait and see what happens at the selection table.




Going to be at zero trades as of this week. Dahlhaus in for Stewart.


Left or Right? Who will win?!

Trengove (PTA) vs Docherty
Ward vs Sloane
Treloar vs Priddis
Kerridge vs Zorko
Merrett vs Montagna
Hall vs Greene


Add Goldstein Vs Martin


Stunning win to the right.




Or with different trades
Left or Right? Who will win?

Rance vs Rich
Trengove vs Docherty
Ward vs Sloane
Treloar vs Priddis
Kerridge vs Zorko
Hall vs Greene
Delido/Petracca vs Montagna
(who ever plays)



The Master

Made it into top 4 in both my leagues, also inside top 1000. so far a good season. Have 4 trades left and $100k.
All season I have been waiting for Docherty to have a couple of low scores so I could pick him up cheap and he has been killing me with his continuos high scores. looks like I need to bite the bullet and spend the money to upgrade Suckling to Docherty.
I will paint the fence with Mathieson down to Menagola and suckling to Docherty leaving 2 trades and 114k for injuries.
All depends on Teams Thursday night. Hoping Hall is back soon otherwise I will trade Kerridge or Hall for Dalhouse in next couple of weeks. Have been playing Kerridge on field last couple of weeks which has hurt. Scored 2480 last week and managed to climb 30 spots. Need a big one this week, playing the Phantom and should have him covered. Best of luck everyone.


i've been waiting for Docherty to have a bad game. just not happening.


Yep, its a funny game. I picked up Doch and Heater at the start. But if ya told me one would be under over 550k and the other under 480k this time of year, I wouldn't have got them this way around.
Of course, for every pick ya get right, there is another one who torches you for 1/2 the season before you can get rid of them. Welcome to my "never again" list Chad Wingard………….


Yep. Ports easy draw at the start sucked me into starting with Chad. First week BANG! 125, thankyouverymuch. nothing but tears after that.


4 trades and 99k in the kitty. Thinking of painting the fence.
Jack Trengrove down to a 102k non-playing rookie.
Tippa up to Enright. Would leave me with a backline of-

Doch, Shaw, Simpson, Enright, Laird, Rance (Collins, Joyce)

Is Tippa to Enright worth a precious trade or not? I don't like having Tippa or Collins on field.


102k rookie would be dpp to set up def/mid swing with Joyce.


Tippa to Enright = No Brainer


i scored 2,456
Ranked: 5975

Hero = Pendles + Danger
Villians = Sauce Jacobs, Rocklobster (B.Smith gets a very honourable mention)
