The Standing Room – ROUND 20

Published by Jock on


Robbie Gray 53. Heath Shaw 58. Josh Gibson 58. Chad Wingard 64.

I’m soaking the underpant of my Supercoach team in a bucket with Nappisan at the moment. Later I’ll wash them in warm water. I’ll then take the bastards down to the dry cleaners to be professionally cleaned.

It’s been the most horrible of annusses for JR Brumby FC. But this weekend takes the cake.

On a bright note it was bloody good to meet a lot of you on Friday night for some CoachKings – highlight of the night by far was Christina’s national win pictured here with a great community mate of ours Sarah who most of you know from the comments:


How is your weekend of fantasy footy going folks?



Geoff · 07/08/2016 at 12:29

Looking at a narrow loss, thoughts on switching the C to Steven? Opponent and myself currently have Danger.

    Kev · 07/08/2016 at 12:35

    If you're in an EF then take a punt mate

    God · 07/08/2016 at 20:03

    wouldn't of been a good call

      Blueth · 07/08/2016 at 23:44


Mac · 07/08/2016 at 12:36

Pendles as well Jock.

Kev · 07/08/2016 at 12:39

Add in Buddy's 60 and Pendles 82 I'm a long way from the 2500 last week.

Bloody looking forward to having the Bont next year. Majestic beast of a footballer

    hedski · 07/08/2016 at 13:05

    Got him in for GAJ a while back Kev been sensational.

    Steeeve · 07/08/2016 at 21:20

    He and Cripps both looking great options for next year. Plus hopefully discount Fyfe.

hedski · 07/08/2016 at 13:04

Had those 4 Jock and have to play Collins on field.
Stick a fork in me I'm done.

poloko48 · 07/08/2016 at 14:10

Danger, Jelwood, Bartel + 137pts
Danger (C), Blicavs, Neale

Who wins?

    Don't Blush Baby · 07/08/2016 at 15:03

    Based on the projections -1st scenario = 477 ,2nd scenario = 450

      poloko48 · 07/08/2016 at 15:51

      Hmmm I actually stuffed that up it should read:

      Danger, Jelwood, Bartel + 69pts
      Danger (C), Blicavs, Neale

      Think I'm screwed unless Danger underperforms

T-Mitch · 07/08/2016 at 15:05

With all the shite scores I should still survive and get around the 2500 mark, mainly thanks to big max

    I N Pieman · 07/08/2016 at 15:19

    Glorious from Big Maxy. I'm still sporting a sizeable one

I N Pieman · 07/08/2016 at 15:15

Glad I went Scully over Ebert!

Derek · 07/08/2016 at 15:22

Every week it's the same…….. I can't watch Carlton play anymore. Whenever I look up Simpson or Docherty has the ball.

    I N Pieman · 07/08/2016 at 15:25

    Agree Derek. I've left home & gone to a venue that doesn't have Foxtel. Can't watch anymore either. My alternatives rich & JJ did ok but

Clarky99 · 07/08/2016 at 15:49

Take Savage's 60 odd or go Collins?

    poloko48 · 07/08/2016 at 15:52

    I'd take a punt on Collins, not much to lose really

      I N Pieman · 07/08/2016 at 15:54

      Collins usually goes past that. I'd take the punt

      Clarky99 · 07/08/2016 at 16:15

      Turned out to be 72, still go Collins?

        I N Pieman · 07/08/2016 at 16:36

        Only if you need to in a league match

tuxCS · 07/08/2016 at 15:51

My trio of Selwood, Bartel and Dangerfield are on 16, 14 and 9 respectively at quarter time, if they don't pick it up its going to hurt a lot of coaches.

    I N Pieman · 07/08/2016 at 16:00

    Particularly the ones with danger as captain

      SCaddict · 07/08/2016 at 16:20

      I was hoping Danger bogs his jocks this weekend with so many coaches counting on him for their C. So far so good although he could certainly cut loose in the 2nd half.

        I N Pieman · 07/08/2016 at 16:51

        All 8 leagues I'm in have danger as captain. So I'm really hoping he shits the bed. Sub 100 wound be awesome

          Derek · 07/08/2016 at 18:24

          I went Priddis as C. My main league has Enright and I have Motlop. Priddis needs 150+ for me now.

            Shake n bake · 07/08/2016 at 18:47

            I've got you covered aswell Derek.

          SCaddict · 07/08/2016 at 18:43

          A 70pt 2nd half was bit of a bummer but you still got your wish sub 100.

          A nice 70pt bump over those who also have Gawn And Danger but went Danger as C. Could decide a few close finals.

          On track for nearly 2500 if Pridda can keep it going in the last qtr.

Hawks · 07/08/2016 at 16:01

Who do I captain?

I will need every point this week.

Opponent = +460 points with Collins to play
Me = Bartel, Selwood, Priddis, Josh Kennedy + opportunity to Capt Dangerfield (or any of those listed earlier)

Advise please.

    Hawks · 07/08/2016 at 16:43

    Went with Priddis. Turn it on Pridda

CapTkAos · 07/08/2016 at 16:33

The SC gods giveth, and they taketh away. Have Danger as c like many others But brought in Enright this week.

Bill · 07/08/2016 at 16:51

Is this really happening with Danger? Really?

    Bill · 07/08/2016 at 16:52

    Guess doesn't want the Brownlow that bad!

      Derek · 07/08/2016 at 18:24

      He was on track for about 70, but got a wriggle along

poloko48 · 07/08/2016 at 19:26

Par for this week? Have finished on 2369 which I feel is a little below par.

    Steeeve · 07/08/2016 at 19:31

    Should be above I reckon. I was projected almost 2500, will finish under 2350.

    johnno2908 · 07/08/2016 at 19:33

    Depending on where you are in the competition, i would say slightly under. Seeing a lot around 2400 or just over in top 4 finals.

Steeeve · 07/08/2016 at 19:29

Won my 6v7 elimination final, checked to see who is be playing next week. Wonder which side won the 2v3 match up?
Then I see one team had Gawn captain. The other? Robbie Gray…

hedski · 07/08/2016 at 19:40

Hooley Dooley I won both my cash leagues with a crappy 2301.
Nearly took Priddis over Danger for cap but worked out ok.

SCaddict · 07/08/2016 at 19:49

2488 getting over the line in 9/9 finals. Unfortunately 5 of those were VFL finals ha ha.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/08/2016 at 21:20

    Got me by 4 addict but i had the 4 villians jock mentioned in the title.
    Everyone else esp the beard were fantastic.
    Sheil was out but menegola stepped up to the plate.

      SCaddict · 07/08/2016 at 21:47

      Good time to punch out a tidy score isn't it with so many burnmen out there this week causing plenty of coaches to crash and burn.

      Also had Brown's 130 on my bench too that I sadly couldn't loop.

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/08/2016 at 21:54

        Yeah after the port game was looking abysmal though did have a couple of swans.
        Brisbane game got me back on track
        Had a feeling about gawn and you gotta back ya gut in this caper.

Dean · 07/08/2016 at 20:03

I finished top 4 in all my leagues but after Pendles went down Friday night I decided to keep my 3 trades and not to trade Mathieson to Menegola and Libba to Sloane.

If I made those two trades I would have won my first final, so not sure what was best, maybe I should have traded and used my last trade on pendles if he is out for 2 or more weeks.

Its a bloody tough game, fingers crossed I do allot better next week.

Top hawk · 07/08/2016 at 20:06

Happy days!


Lost every single final in my leagues. Ended up with 2319.

Robbie Gray's (sheit in pants) effort and the "non appearance phantom", also known as Stefan Martin cost me big time.

It just did not come together this week. I will lick my feathers, chill out, and have another crack next week in the semis.

    hedski · 07/08/2016 at 20:13

    Ya woulda beat me toppa.

      Top hawk · 07/08/2016 at 21:38

      Yeah true. You had a rough weekend too mate. Danger did turn into a church mouse…..

      Are we on a collision course next week? If so, I am gonna have to beat ya without Danger.

      Cheers mate

        hedski · 08/08/2016 at 08:31

        Na Toppa I got cooked in 6 leagues!
        Still kicken in Hypochondria JR league and play Derek in A graders VFL next week. Most importantly tho I'm still going in my 2 cashies.
        Good luck for rest of finals.

Don't Blush Baby · 07/08/2016 at 20:20

2333 puts me through in our $100 winner take all league with 2 trades left,happy days at this stage

    hedski · 07/08/2016 at 21:40

    Done me in league of losers blush, i shouldn't have been a nasty arse and not wished ya luck!

Shake n bake · 07/08/2016 at 20:20

Got 2470 and played Patracca & Naismith. Wanted to trade out Patracca before their game for Rioli but got stuck at work. Oh well have the bye in 9 out of my 10 leagues next week with 4 trades left.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/08/2016 at 21:24

    Woulda got u this week shakers. 🙂

      Shake n bake · 07/08/2016 at 21:40

      I sure I'll have a few out this week to maybe buddy Pendels hope Shiel and Martin come back in so I can use my trades wisely. Gawn was a great capt choice for you!!

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/08/2016 at 22:03

        Yeah had a feeling on gawn and ya gotta back ya gut in this caper.
        Did enjoy taking out the phantom in one my other leagues. 🙂

Ethan · 07/08/2016 at 20:21

What a shit week

Boltons Blues · 07/08/2016 at 20:28

2487 with captain danger and had to play Dunkley because sheil was out
Won both leagues and have the week off next week, hopefully all of them has a nice rest and I get no injures

johnno2908 · 07/08/2016 at 20:33

Straight through in all leagues, scored 2537 with Gawn C. Did not make any trades this week after Pendles went down, so still 4 left. Any more news on Pendles?

    Matt · 07/08/2016 at 21:58


Don't Blush Baby · 07/08/2016 at 20:34

Any word on Pendles ?

tuxCS · 07/08/2016 at 20:36

How did everyone else do this week? I managed to scrape through to the semis/prelims in 10/10 leagues with a 2389. I don't think i'll make it much further though, because i have to field Mathieson to cover pendles.

    T-mitch · 07/08/2016 at 20:46

    Through to prelim of all but 1 league with 2503 lost in the elimination that I finished 6th in (bloody tough league that one)

      tuxCS · 07/08/2016 at 20:52

      Gawn as C?

        T-mitch · 07/08/2016 at 20:55


    john · 07/08/2016 at 21:21

    Through to Prelims in all 4 of my leagues. Had Danger as Captain and still managed 2382. Pendles a problem but have some coverage with McVeigh off the bench.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/08/2016 at 21:29

    Won all of my leagues except g 'n' r where liam took the chockies with jjk getting him over the line with a great score of 2542.

      tuxCS · 07/08/2016 at 22:21

      What did you end up scoring Trigger?

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/08/2016 at 22:25

        I see our mate johnno2908 rocketed up from 18th to 9th overall, with trades gotta b a huge chance now.

          tuxCS · 07/08/2016 at 22:34

          I'll be rooting for him, nice score by the way 🙂

Johnny · 07/08/2016 at 21:51

Sloane with no one to loophole really hurt

SCaddict · 07/08/2016 at 22:22

Congrats Shemmist Warehouse who bolted into the outright lead with a handy 2496 this week.

Endeavour Storm also moved into (effectively) 2nd after an impressive 2507.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/08/2016 at 22:28

    Go the Shem great stuff mate.

johnno2908 · 07/08/2016 at 22:34

Every team in the top 30 overall have Scott Pendlebury. Makes the game very interesting!

Blueth · 07/08/2016 at 23:42

There must've been bother all people with Gawn as C.

I had stupid 'Brownlow in the bag' Danger as C and ranked 534 for the round.

Gotta grow some cohones in the finals people.

Westy · 08/08/2016 at 08:27

What happened to Clay Smith?

    Millicent · 08/08/2016 at 08:57

    Concussed in first quarter and taken off.
