Preliminary Final


You can smell the bastards now. In less than a week those of us lucky enough to have qualified for a Supercoach League Preliminary Finals will be undergoing final preparations.

I’d like to congratulate those of you out there who make it through. I’d also like to congratulate those of you who might not be making it through – but are seeing this thing through till the end.

There are a stack of us going down to the wire in cut throat finals today.. best of luck to you all. May the Gods keep the fabric of your teams underpant unsoiled this day.

How is this weekend treating you folks?


pod · 14/08/2016 at 10:56

Danger, Neale or Sloane as C ?

    pod · 14/08/2016 at 13:20

    I'd go Danger

Tommo09 · 14/08/2016 at 11:04

2039/18 (C)
Danger, Rance, Martin, Laird, Neale (E) to come
Hopefully will get close to 2500 this week

What is par this week?
2500? I guess a lot depends on Danger as usual

    pod · 14/08/2016 at 11:07

    I reckon you're right, I'm looking at 2550 with Danger as C.

Derek · 14/08/2016 at 11:13

Do I take Pendles 94 or put Motlop on field?

    Kev · 14/08/2016 at 11:17

    Take it. Motlop has never cracked the 3 figures against the tigers

    pod · 14/08/2016 at 11:20

    I'm looping him with Gaff (79), nice weather today in Melbourne.. Go Cats

      Derek · 14/08/2016 at 11:32

      I'd be pretty happy with Motlop getting 94.

      I should have looped Motlop with Wingard

        hedski · 14/08/2016 at 11:58

        I can't even use Chad next week to loop Suckling and Petracca. USELESS.
        Your motoring along nicely Derek, hard the say it cos I'm a cats man but I hope Bartel and Motlop are rubbish today!
        I should win my cash league pretty easily so I'm wondering whether to take the cap off The Bont and stick it on Danger to have a crack at you in A graders? Decisions…

          Derek · 14/08/2016 at 12:53

          Wingard one of my worst picks, can't believe I still have him. 3 trades left, he will become NRoo next week

            Don't Blush Baby · 14/08/2016 at 13:12

            I'll be going to Zorko,I'm probably the only person who doesn't have him

          Derek · 14/08/2016 at 12:58

          I have the Blitz as well, he might be due

            hedski · 14/08/2016 at 13:05

            True. Might whack the C on Jelwood or Zerret for a bit of fun.

              Derek · 14/08/2016 at 13:56

              I still have Rich and BSmith as my D6/7. Decided not to take Rich and go with Brodie.

                hedski · 14/08/2016 at 14:22

                That's dicey. I put the cap on jelwood but may chicken out and give it to danger yet.

                  Derek · 14/08/2016 at 14:26

                  Smith scored 127 DT last week and looks ok against weaker teams

Crowmagnon · 14/08/2016 at 12:47

To get Gawn's VC score I would need to bench Sloane and take Wills' 83.
Or should I just keep the C on Danger and keep Sloane on the field?

    Derek · 14/08/2016 at 12:59

    It ends up same if they score around 117 each. I'd back them both to kill that.

      Crowmagnon · 14/08/2016 at 13:05

      That's the thing though, they both have to get 117 just to match up.
      I agree that they both "should", but I think I'll wuss out and take the "bird in the hand".

    Johnny · 14/08/2016 at 13:41

    I'm in the exact same position. Opted Gawn as danger and Sloane may take it easy. Just hope danger doesn't get 200

poloko48 · 14/08/2016 at 12:54

1821 from 15, C on Maxy Gawn.
Couldn't loophole him to then Danger but more than happy with what i have.
Have Zerrett, Jelwood, Danger, Bartel, Hall, Dusty, Laird today. Projected to hit 2608 but will be happy with anything 2500+

    pod · 14/08/2016 at 13:00

    Looking good, Cats due for big score

TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/08/2016 at 14:38

Danger or sloane as capt?

    I N Pieman · 14/08/2016 at 15:01

    Think you have to go Danger. Higher ceiling

      I N Pieman · 14/08/2016 at 16:37

      Hope you didn't listen to me & went Sloane

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/08/2016 at 21:36

        Nope went danger who outscored sloane!
        Sloane77 lowest for the year I reckon.

CoachDamo · 14/08/2016 at 15:06

Any word on Neale playing?

    I N Pieman · 14/08/2016 at 15:10

    He's listed to play

Jay · 14/08/2016 at 16:41

Hope Danger doesn't win the brownlow he has been absolute shit lately!

tuxCS · 14/08/2016 at 16:59

Looks like danger is going to lose us ALOT of semi finals

Boltons BLues · 14/08/2016 at 17:40

thoughts fellas, 6 this weekend has helped
looking at the last 2 games, Franklin can get up with 2 winnable games and west coast with tougher games

Jay · 14/08/2016 at 17:57

In the End Danger turned out to be a BUM!

Bells E Bubb · 14/08/2016 at 18:00

So that’s Crouching One on another bender then…

    I N Pieman · 14/08/2016 at 18:10

    Reckon He's on run can number 8 right now

Shake n bake · 14/08/2016 at 18:20

Hey Derek, You should have took B Crouch!!

    Derek · 14/08/2016 at 18:33

    if Pendles didn't play he was my trade. Gun

      Derek · 14/08/2016 at 18:34

      Got him in my draft team a few weeks back and he has been fantastic

        Shake n bake · 14/08/2016 at 19:19

        He has been good.

SC16 · 14/08/2016 at 18:21


    Bells E Bubb · 14/08/2016 at 19:27

    You deserve to be.

Derek · 14/08/2016 at 18:52

I have Sloane and BSmith vs Neale +47.

Thought I'd be a good chance until Sloane gets the big tag!

Still 25 behind with a quarter to go

    Derek · 14/08/2016 at 19:22

    If I had taken Rich's score instead of risking BSmith I would have won by 2 pts

    My fault for still having him

Tommo09 · 14/08/2016 at 19:02

Looking at 2550

    johnno2908 · 14/08/2016 at 19:31

    Bit above i reckon. Pretty shit Sunday. I ended up on 2512 so will drop out of top 10 i reckon

    SCaddict · 14/08/2016 at 19:46

    Not too far behind you with 2518. Most of my finals opponents had scores in the 2300s so we should hopefully surge up the rankings.

    Danners · 14/08/2016 at 21:32

    Par would be about 2400

Steeeve · 14/08/2016 at 19:26

Messed up my VC loophole and ended up with Danger instead of Gawn. Cost me my season in my main league.

Had built a great team and it came undone thanks to poor coaching, lesson learned the hard way.

Still alive in other leagues hoping to finish the year strong.

tuxCS · 14/08/2016 at 19:29

What a time for my worst week in supercoach. Lost every single one of my semi finals and am just about done for the season, see you all next year, thanks for the excellent advice you've all given me

    Steeeve · 14/08/2016 at 19:58

    You're not alone mate, I have one league left.

    Jay · 14/08/2016 at 20:01

    First of all you are a retard! Second you absolutely suck @ SC! #rd STFU you are absolutely useless when it comes to fcking SC relevance! Shut ur fcking PIE HOLE YOU WASTE OF HUMAN FLESH NO GOOD SC!

      Jay · 14/08/2016 at 20:03

      ; )

      tuxCS · 14/08/2016 at 20:07

      It's funny, I seem to get these sorts of comments on my stuff a lot, I'm sorry if I've done anything to make you dislike me, but I'm just trying to be a part of the community like everyone else.

        Choppy · 14/08/2016 at 20:56

        Dont take notice of the troll flogs mate

          tuxCS · 14/08/2016 at 22:36

          Thanks Choppy.

Harry · 14/08/2016 at 19:47

2675 a shot at the money??

    I N Pieman · 14/08/2016 at 19:59

    Would have to be close. Ripping score Harry

      Tommo09 · 14/08/2016 at 20:10


    Hawks · 14/08/2016 at 20:15

    Great score, Rocky or Gawn captain?

      Harry · 14/08/2016 at 20:30


    Danners · 14/08/2016 at 21:30

    Should win some bills

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/08/2016 at 21:33

    Nice one, surely in the money

    Dasha · 14/08/2016 at 21:38

    surely up there, good on ya mate!

hedski · 14/08/2016 at 20:10

Well Derek , didn't die wondering. Even if I kept bont ya got me by 5. Good luck against Neil next week.

    Derek · 14/08/2016 at 21:12


      hedski · 14/08/2016 at 21:20

      Still in my 2 cash leagues so still happy πŸ˜‰

Hawks · 14/08/2016 at 20:13

Won all my 3 finals this week, and line-up in semi finals in all 5 of my leagues.

Made the unusual, but necessary trade of Collins to a non-playing defender, so I could loophole Gawns VC score. Won my money league by 6 points (2485-2479). Knew having trades would help.

Shake n bake · 14/08/2016 at 20:16

Not the best score for me got 2400 but only had to play in 1 of my 10 leagues and won. Made the last 4 in all them. I have 3 trades left so I suppose if no inj or rested player I'll be looking at doing sideways trades. Maybe Bont against Ess.

poloko48 · 14/08/2016 at 20:16

7 / 652 for Sunday, below par as was projected for 2608 but had to settle for 2473. Thinking that might be slightly under par.

    Hawks · 14/08/2016 at 20:20

    Well over par from what I've seen.

    Par around 2400

      poloko48 · 14/08/2016 at 20:24

      Wow really, amazed that either those under par didn't VC Gawn or risked it on Danger maybe?

Paulie Walnuts · 14/08/2016 at 20:38

There was some coaches me included who preserved themselves with Cash Leagues in mind and saved trades rather than go for rank or try and win other leagues

Paulie Walnuts · 14/08/2016 at 21:36

Tippa or Collins – which one do I trade out to free up cash ? – thinking Collins

Also – Wingard to Zorko or Dahlaus ? – thinking Zorko

TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/08/2016 at 21:48

Knocked out in a couple of leagues through to next week in my cashies.
Mid 23's.
Probably had another hundred sitting in the shed with the chad checking out early and the VC sitting on Rocky unable to be used.
Was tossing up Danger or Sloane as capt today, went danger just made the ton who along with the cats had a big last qtr.

Macca1112 · 14/08/2016 at 21:56

Luckiest SuperCoach player alive tonight.

Scraped through cut throat final in a tie. Needed Brodie Smith to get 65 and he got it after the rounding up process.

Proceed to next week as I was the highest place getter.

There is a SuperCoach God.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/08/2016 at 22:02

    Whoa. Close call,
    Not that long ago we put brodie on the park and could lock in a ton, now we r hoping for 65.

      Macca1112 · 14/08/2016 at 22:06

      Gone next week.

      To Bartel or McVeigh.

        Hoot · 14/08/2016 at 22:25

        Bartel is off my 2017 list now.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/08/2016 at 22:31

          He might be a spectator in 2017.
          How much has he dropped in form since the public spat on his playing future?
          Having a significant impact.

            SCaddict · 15/08/2016 at 01:08

            I traded Jimmy out early in the year and was regretting it for much of the season.

            But in the finals it's been a fantasy godsend to not have him stink up my defence. Although Suckling Pig has been my own stain in the undies during the finals.

    Derek · 15/08/2016 at 09:02

    i have the opposite story. I decided to loop Rich's 76 on the bench and put BSmith on field. He scored 65 and i lost to Superfreaks by 10. i was expecting Sloane to have got me home though

Michael · 14/08/2016 at 22:03

made it through !!! Best scores of the round but alas playing for Minor delivering 2450. Too little too late but I still want to win the minor final.

SCaddict · 14/08/2016 at 22:51

Shemmist Warehouse going for gold after consolidating top spot with a solid 2491. Giant Killers rockets into the silver medal position with a barnstorming 2607. Buzz II currently holding down bronze.

    hedski · 14/08/2016 at 23:17

    Go shem

Kev · 15/08/2016 at 07:59

2502 this week and I've moved up 7k in rankings over the past 3. Coming home strong. Into 3 prelims after finishing in the bottom half of the top 8.

My luxury moves if there's no team selection drama
Wells – Dahl
ZWilliams – Boyd

    SCaddict · 15/08/2016 at 08:34

    Nice stuff Kev!

    Great time of the season to peak. Both those trades will likely strengthen your side further if you're allowed that luxury.

johnno2908 · 15/08/2016 at 08:53

Thank god i traded Petracca to Luke Dahlhaus this week. Meant I had Dahlhaus at F6 and Lycett at F7 and that putrid 2 was on the bench.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 15/08/2016 at 09:22

    I think anyone with trades that was a don't think do trade.
    I suppose some poor sod would have had lycett on the field.
