Jock Reynolds Surfing

It’s become a tradition of mine folks.

Sunday morning. Last weekend of the Supercoach season. We head down to Point Leo. I spend some time on the old 6’2”. Reconnect with nature. Spend some time with the young kids. Peter sits on the beach and reads a book. Crouching heads out the back for a spear fish.

I use the time out there in the lineup to do a lot of thinking.

I think about the season that we’ve had as a community. The season I’ve had as a fantasy footballer. My mates who have it all on the line in Supercoach Grand Finals. About the off season.

Lets spend some time here today sharing with each other. What stories have defined your season? Any tales of Grand Final weekend. Triumph? Disaster? What will you take with you into season 2017 after what you’ve learnt this year?

See you in the comments folks. Remember, we’re cranking the podcast and the content right through the off season so stay around the joint.

Let’s chat

Pendles Neale Johainisson +109 points versus Bont Treloar GIBBO SUCKLINGPIG…….OH SH!T I'M FINGERED.

    I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 13:23

    I'd rather your position Hedski. Depends which Gibbo rocks up

      hedski · 28/08/2016 at 14:00

      I have gibbo suckling combo pieman?

        I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 14:02

        That's a nervous wait! If he's playing in Cloke he should go well

    jockreynolds · 28/08/2016 at 18:22

    What's the update Hed?

      hedski · 28/08/2016 at 18:25

      Down the bottom Jock.

Bells E Bubb · 28/08/2016 at 13:22

Despite naming a league after Jock’s underwear (Jock’s Jock) I managed to not make the finals of my own bloody league by percentage (of about 1%).

For the first 12 weeks I managed to pick the exact worst option for captain. I blame the big man upstairs. (Not you Jock).

Once again I vow not to blow all my trades with 2 or 3 weeks to go in the season. Gambling is my work though after-all.

Once again I vow to pick only 2 mid pricers next year despite the fact there are probably 8-10 dead certainties to have a huge break out year. Almost none of them will.

I hope there are some more stay at home options for Coachkings next year. My location has little AFL interest, and Mrs Bubb doesn’t let me out much anyway.

NEVER said this before but C”MON PIES! I don’t want to go to bloody Homebush next week. Nobody does.

    I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 14:06

    I had the same problem with Mrs Pieman. So I traded her for tinder. I'll never make a better trade!

    jockreynolds · 28/08/2016 at 18:24

    Bub – I'll tell you one FACT. Any midpricer selected in my team next year would need to a dead set, rolled gold, no braining lock. Had enough of these tin arse middies

      I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 19:14

      Agree jock. Due to lack of rookies I picked more than usual. Restructuring to guns & rooks next season

      Moustachio · 28/08/2016 at 19:29

      Lads, I am doing the opposite! So many injured guns looking likely to pick from, the value is immense. I know the carnage will be BRUTAL but… I'll love it anyway 😀

        I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 19:55

        You do have some credits in the bank Moustachio. Congrats on your stunning season mate. There abouts back half of the season is a credit to your ability. Best of luck next year

I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 13:26

Pendles & Boyd & 120 point lead vs Steven Neale & rich

    hedski · 28/08/2016 at 14:01

    First one

Kev · 28/08/2016 at 14:04

Hells bells, Jock! With a physique like that I'm gonna have to switch to Carlton Draught!

What worked this year: Sticking with straight guns and rookies. All my trades were up or down to proven premiums or basement rookies. I started with Libba and Wells as my only two midprice selections and they both paid off. Didn't get sucked into flavour of the month picks like Rich or Zaha.

Held my trades. Had 5 going into the finals series

What didn't: The flip side to guns n rooks is I missed out on the breakout players like Zerrett and Bont. Probably not ruthless enough either, especially early. Held Laird and Barlow when they were going through their injury/form/ross lyon enforced absence. I also held Sam Gray for way too long than I want to admit. I didn't reach full premium until round 18 and since then I've averaged 2470 and moved up nearly 9k rankings in 4 weeks

Lesson for next year: I'm pretty happy with my strategy this year. Held off trading early until my rookies fattened up then traded as long as there was a downgrade option. Holding injured players, especially early on, is something I won't do next year. Having a premo on the pine for more than a 1-2 weeks is a killer

    jockreynolds · 28/08/2016 at 18:29

    You don't get a rig like this looking at yourself in the mirror Kev. Plenty of roughage. 150 burpees a day. It all pays off.

    Great work on the ranking climb mate, and on your initial team discipline with just the two midpricers early.

    Been a hell of a season

Hoot · 28/08/2016 at 15:02

Even if Neal is playing will he out score anyone everyone from that game?

Or …

Use my last trade to swap Neal for another? I.e Bont..

I have time to trade in Hawk/Coll also.

    LJB · 28/08/2016 at 15:43

    I have just traded Neal for Bont. Hoping the bont goes huge to win me the GF

      Hoot · 28/08/2016 at 16:36

      Did the same…. fingers crossed it pays off.

        LJB · 28/08/2016 at 16:48

        Goodluck hoot. In my league its bont +108 vs neal and dahl.

          Hoot · 28/08/2016 at 20:06

          Thanks but Bont was crap. Haha

          Ohh well. If i had my time again id have done the same move as it seemed logical at the time.

          Hope my mid 2400 was enough to stay top 30.

        Steeeve · 28/08/2016 at 18:42

        I did the same also, because I couldn't wait to see if Neale was in (had my own real life footy final to play — we came second). Might cost us a few points.

Jambo · 28/08/2016 at 15:13

With my last trade, I traded Mitch Robinson to Nick Riewoldt.

    Don't Blush Baby · 28/08/2016 at 15:38

    A Whale of a move Jambo !

    hedski · 28/08/2016 at 16:02

    Massive

    LJB · 28/08/2016 at 16:05

    Assuming that move will win u the GF

      I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 16:24

      Jambo you must have the most stretched trousers in history. Legendary trade mate!

        Jambo · 28/08/2016 at 16:45

        Yes…and prolonged climax of pleasure. Cheers bro.

    Clarky99 · 28/08/2016 at 16:40

    Wowee!

    jockreynolds · 28/08/2016 at 18:29

    Sensational stuff!!

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 20:00

    One Touch Wonder would be proud of that move

Kev · 28/08/2016 at 16:35

Stay down Gibbo!

Pendles, Treloar, Dahl, 100 v Howe, Gibbo, Hunter, JJoh

johnno2908 · 28/08/2016 at 16:40

Collingwood looking a real chance of keeping Hawthorn out of top 4!

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 18:49

    But they didnt

Mitch · 28/08/2016 at 17:28

Lachie Neale you absolute superstar

James · 28/08/2016 at 17:56

Every non-hawks supporter in the country right now: "F*ck you hawthorn"

    hedski · 28/08/2016 at 18:04

    Big game cats v hawks.

      Bells E Bubb · 28/08/2016 at 19:24

      Cats by 28 for me.

      Derek · 28/08/2016 at 19:59

      Pretty happy with outcome. Hawks get to play at home, big advantage

Boltons Blues · 28/08/2016 at 18:01

Bloody Rioli is looked after, 90+ points for 10 touches and 3 goals rofl
Riewoldt had 21 marks and 9 goals for 187, by that he should be 300+
joke!!

hedski · 28/08/2016 at 18:03

29 points behind (thanks Treloawsome) with Bont and Suckers vs Neale and JJoh…..
A turd in the face to you Gibbo never again.

    jockreynolds · 28/08/2016 at 18:30

    Close!?

      hedski · 28/08/2016 at 18:41

      3 qtr time still 30 odd down. Need big qtr from the Bont. He's stitched up and hopefully chargin.
      Bloody Neale is unstoppable atm.

    johnno2908 · 28/08/2016 at 18:40

    Need Bont to lift

Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 18:34

2442 with whatever Boyd ends up with. But will lose by about 40 I think. Have to wait for emergencies to get sorted. Lots of ups and downs. My Buddy and Treloar countered by his Zaha and Cripps as POD

Tom · 28/08/2016 at 18:37

Hey Guys,
Found this site midway through the year and found it extremely helpful! So many people commenting and the content produced by Jock and Co was quality stuff really. Didn't take supercoach all that seriously this year, but started loving it later on in the season, so looking forward to my first preseason next year! But since i'm quite new to supercoach, looking for your opinions as to how i should go about it next year as to how i should pick my team and stuff. Would love to hear your thoughts!

Look forward to an even better year next year!

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 19:58

    Make sure you spend plenty of time here in preseason

      Tom · 28/08/2016 at 20:01

      When does pre season start? When SC starts up for 2017?

        Derek · 28/08/2016 at 22:40

        We usually start chatting about team about January

Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 18:39

Ok. Boyd has to beat Dahlhaus by 17. Don't think it will happen. So probably 2480 and lose to a 2500. Fair end to the season and that should keep me under 10k in rankings for the first time!!

    Mitch · 28/08/2016 at 18:49

    Still a chance I'd say mate!

    Steeeve · 28/08/2016 at 18:51

    Not over yet. Neverweaken!

      Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 19:03

      Boyd up by 16. Love supercoach. Otherwise would care for last game of the season at all 🙂

        Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 19:20

        Boyd beats Dahl by 20. But think emergency is Mcveigh. So lose by 7. Good gf though ended 2494 may even move into the 8ks

          Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 19:47

          Lose 2499 to 2511. Good GF.
          Now to next year. Who are locks. Who to gamble on

Steeeve · 28/08/2016 at 18:50

Bont lifting. Keep lifting you beautiful man

neil · 28/08/2016 at 18:59

Halfway thru 4 quarter zac I possy 19 sc what a champ Derek gets 5 100 plus

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 19:57

    I think in CoachKings that's about 145.

johnno2908 · 28/08/2016 at 19:05

Brought in Bontempelli instead of Selwood. Great decision that was.

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 20:34

    The numbers for Selwood didn't lie. He plays well last game of year.

    Bont nothing to play for

Boltons Blues · 28/08/2016 at 19:08

Got robbed by champion data to lose by 50 points in my cash league.
Rioli, what a joke
He had Franklin on the bench, so I was laughing in a good spot to win, all of a sudden pulls out 2 trades to trade birchill and Dalhaus to a none playing forward and Boyd, gets him an extra 90 points.

Safe to say I'm mad right now 🙁

johnno2908 · 28/08/2016 at 19:14

Ended up 2526 and won cash and work league. Don't think it will be enough to get me back in top 10. Oh well, good season. Congrats to everyone who won their grand finals, and I hope Shemm has done enough to hold on.

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 19:55

    Great season

      I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 20:40

      Btilliant season. You should be very proud

    pod · 29/08/2016 at 06:16

    Well done johnno, excellent effort

hedski · 28/08/2016 at 19:19

Well went down in granny by 50 odd points.
Scored @2480 which would have won me both my cashies if I hadn't of spewed out a pathetic 2280 last week. That's the game tho. Time for another beer cheers. Go Shemm

pod · 28/08/2016 at 19:36

Like a good horse Pieman, stuck your head out when it counted. Well done mate, excellent effort.

jockreynolds · 28/08/2016 at 19:38

Great stuff!

Tommo09 · 28/08/2016 at 19:42

2551
Good week
Easy GF win
Will I rise from 2k in the rankings?

Boltons Blues · 28/08/2016 at 19:43

2 trades I didn't see that coming.
Too 2k finish this year, best year for me so far

Nifty · 28/08/2016 at 19:44

Unbelievable, won the GF by 1 point in The True Believers.
Thanks SCaddict fro the invite..

    SCaddict · 28/08/2016 at 20:07

    Awesome stuff Nifty. Your Danger VC was telling in the end if only just.

      Nifty · 28/08/2016 at 20:11

      Not wrong, thanks again mate, we'll do it all again next year..

Pitch 72 · 28/08/2016 at 19:45

Won 5 out of 6 grannies with a score of 2560, Treloar incredible after being zero at quarter time to post 150, cant wait till 2017..

Pissed orf · 28/08/2016 at 19:49

The Phantom rolled me in 3/6 Leagues…….kent.

    SCaddict · 28/08/2016 at 20:23

    I see The Phantom actually tied his Adelaide Advertiser league. Sadly there are no GF replays in fantasy!

    https://twitter.com/ThePhantomSC/status/769837852

      I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 20:45

      Didnt touch the pill in the first q. And finished with 150. Probably never been done. Watched the whole game & he's absolute quality. Probably justifys the ransom GWS put on him

        pod · 29/08/2016 at 06:15

        I was sobbing at quarter time dribbling into my hands shrieking expletives at Treloar for an utterly deplorable effort, but when the second quarter started, the clouds cleared and bright sunshine pierced through the darkness and what I saw was nothing short of amazing!!

    The Master · 29/08/2016 at 09:10

    Yep, The Phantom knocked me off too, I scored 2500, went down the rankings a little to finish 572. Still very happy to have my highest finishing rank.

Derek · 28/08/2016 at 19:54

You pipped me by 2

    SCaddict · 28/08/2016 at 20:08

    You pipped me by 2 … too!

    2547 for Team Addicts.

      Derek · 28/08/2016 at 20:25

      Finishing season strong

Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 19:58

I think I will get it tattooed on my forehead. TRADES ARE VALUABLE. MUST KEEP TRADES!!!
Had none for the last 4 weeks

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 20:26

    I'll remind you again at the start of next year.

The Ranger · 28/08/2016 at 20:01

Woohoo! 2457 got me over the line in both my GF's.
Thanks to all for a great year,
Go Shem!

Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 20:11

I think I will get it tattooed on my forehead. TRADES ARE VALUABLE. MUST KEEP TRADES!!!

Hoot · 28/08/2016 at 20:11

Is there a community league to compete for the top group rank?

With all the knowledge surrounding us all, itd be a good idea.

If so id be keen to get involved in 2017.

How many of the top 500 ranked are part of this community?

Good luck all.

    neil · 28/08/2016 at 22:19

    check next year maybe DEREK is thinking same

      Derek · 28/08/2016 at 22:38

      We'll work somthing out for next year

    John · 28/08/2016 at 22:37

    I was top 500 for most of the year but sadly faded and finished 1149 after being ravaged by injuries after the byes. Still my best ever so lots of hope next year for the InfloriousBasterds… Preseason starts after Mad Monday.

Don't Blush Baby · 28/08/2016 at 20:22

2594 – My highest SC Score ever, thanks to those who have replied to my questions and thoughts over the season, 1k in the pocket today – Cha Ching !

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 20:27

    Finished strong. Well done

      Don't Blush Baby · 28/08/2016 at 22:00

      Cheers Derek, appreciated you comments on everything SC

    jockreynolds · 29/08/2016 at 16:12

    Great stuff Blush!!

Derek · 28/08/2016 at 20:31

Cream rises again.

    I N Pieman · 28/08/2016 at 20:41

    Thanks gents. Always back yourself in

Cam_H · 28/08/2016 at 21:02

Won my league by 18 points, but feel it's tainted … my opponent loopholed Mason Cox in to take Dangerfield's 155 VC score, but he forgot to emergency Todd Goldstein and therefore went with only one ruckman. Steve Bradbury?

    SCaddict · 28/08/2016 at 21:07

    Not for mine. You need to be full focussed during the finals and you displayed the superior discipline in my book.

    Spouses, parenting, work, even basic bodily functions all become secondary when a grannie is on the line!

      pod · 29/08/2016 at 06:08

      lol agree SC, also Cam was obviously favoured by the SC Gods which shows he has the force within.

Stevo · 28/08/2016 at 21:07

3/3 Grand Final wins including a coveted cash league. For the first time ever, I finished in the Top 2% rankings. Genuine thanks to Jock and the wider SC Community for your brilliant guidance through a bumpy Season 2016.

Hits – trading in Merrett, Rocky & Zorko in the bye rounds;
Misses – KK, Deledio, Gunston & Rich.

Alex · 28/08/2016 at 21:47

Are their prizes for top 10?

    SCaddict · 28/08/2016 at 21:52

    Yes I believe so for the first time this season I think.

    There was at least one team in the top 10 that was ineligible for prize money due to operating multiple teams so the prize money should extend to at least 11th as I understand it.

OomM · 28/08/2016 at 21:49

Finished 13th overall. Any chance that 3 people in top ten were cheating?

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 22:35

    I see Raj was still in top 10

    Hoot · 28/08/2016 at 22:54

    Does Essendon count?

      OomM · 29/08/2016 at 08:09

      Yeah pretty sure essendon counts

    jockreynolds · 29/08/2016 at 16:12

    Significant Oom! Well done mate

SCaddict · 28/08/2016 at 21:49

Giant Killers comes from behind to snatch the $50,000 after a humongous 2683.

Commiserations Shemm who appeared to be in the box seat going into the final weekend.

The ecstasy and agony of big stakes fantasy footy!

    johnno2908 · 28/08/2016 at 22:00

    Feel sorry for Shemm. Big difference between $50k and $5k. Great season

    neil · 28/08/2016 at 22:22

    bad luck Shem a super year if that's any consolation chin up buddy

      Derek · 28/08/2016 at 22:34

      Yeah, bad luck. I wonder what the final players were?

Don't Blush Baby · 28/08/2016 at 21:51

Giant Killers beat Shem by 9 points, Shem had a 2503 but Killers had a 2683 final round

Richard · 28/08/2016 at 21:52

Congrats to all the Grand Final winners on this site.Hard luck to Shemm going under to giant killer ( aptly named } by 9

Locked and Loaded · 28/08/2016 at 21:52

Lads five years playing this game we love, many heartbreaks, GF losses, Prelim final losses however, today was crowned SC champion of my private league, the feeling is one I can't explain and the reason I love this game so much is for this… Thanks to all you legends for the years of up skilling, advice and guidance.

Now after a week of celebrating we focus on next year to defend the title!!

Cheers

    Locked and Loaded · 28/08/2016 at 22:29

    Top 5k also… Buzzing and cheers to you legends

Neverweaken · 28/08/2016 at 22:02

Yay. Climbed up and just scraped into the 8k range. 8917. First year of taking this game seriously and actually having a decent strategy. Master stroke was having Docherty from the start. One of many dumb moves was trading in Zaha after a few good scores. Learnt a hell of a lot from everybody here and thanks to the whole community.
Aiming to be in the top 5k next year.

Hawks · 28/08/2016 at 22:10

Bad luck Shemm, if I could I would swap my final round score of 2522 with yours so you would win.

Stiff luck being beaten by a team scoring 2683 to get you just.

Great season, proves the information shared by this community is top notch

    Derek · 28/08/2016 at 22:31

    holy smokes. He came from the clouds. Bad luck mate

Jambo · 28/08/2016 at 22:21

I forgot to add… I also traded Lachie Hunter for Adam Treloar!

      Such a competitive JR community league
      So even all the way through.
      Well done dish lickers.
      Look forward to locking horns with all u guys next season.

        neil demonsdelight · 29/08/2016 at 12:15

        likewise trig how did you end up

CaPtKaoS · 28/08/2016 at 22:45

My best year ever. Joined 10 leagues. Made 9 GFs. (5 top 1/2, 4 bottom 1/2). Won 8 (4 top 1/2, 4 bottom 1/2).
Finished just outside the top 5k. The sobering thought is I need to find another 1000+ points to get near the top 500. Already thinking how I can squeeze a few more next year. Thanks for all the advice during the year community, and especially Jock and his crew.

Arousing victory INP

poloko48 · 28/08/2016 at 22:57

Thanks to all the contributors community, great year particularly considering it looked to be all over this time last year!
Finished very poorly on 2346 thanks to a very rookie double mistake.
Wanted to take Danger's VC score and had the Bont as C – so my only option at the time (that I thought…) was to put Phillips (not playing – again so I thought) on field as C with Ward on bench. Bad move – got Phillips score as C as he did play, and to make it worse I forgot to put the E on Ward and had Petracca instead.
Total points loss of almost 200 points! Lesson learnt – stay focussed for the whole season, missed out on my highest score of the year.

Juzzy · 28/08/2016 at 22:58

Finished 609. Happy. Rolled in my GFs. Sad.
Thanks to a great and fun community. Obviously to Jock and his band of merry men, but also to Derek, INuts, Southern, Don't Blush etc, etc.
This site makes the game a hell of a lot more entertaining.
Hope you all back a winner during the spring carnival.

    Juzzy · 28/08/2016 at 23:06

    And SCaddict of course …

    SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 11:12

    A top 1000 finish is always a great result with so much outside your control that can go wrong.

    I actually finished 609th in AFL Fantasy (yes that "other" game) coincidentally!

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/08/2016 at 11:49

      Rename: fantasyaddict? 🙂

      Luv ya wok SC.

Rock Jeynolds · 28/08/2016 at 23:05

How do people in the top 10 claim their prize?

    SCaddict · 28/08/2016 at 23:41

    No doubt the organisers will contact the relevant parties via their supplied personal details after doing some sort of check to ensure the winners have complied with the comp's t&cs.

    In other words if you're a prize winner just sit tight as the cash will be yours soon enough.

shemmistwarehouse · 28/08/2016 at 23:49

did all the maths and seemed like i had it, will be interested to see his final team. still really happy with the season finishing the second and would like to thank the whole community for all the great information and advice everyone gives. lets all be back for a big season next year!!!

    Keenbutclueless · 29/08/2016 at 00:28

    Congrats and commiserations Shem. A fine season.

    pod · 29/08/2016 at 05:53

    Congrats shemm amazing year, well done, only pipped on the line by a herculean last round performance

      I N Pieman · 29/08/2016 at 06:12

      Awesome season Shemm. 5k in the kit is a great day out. 2 seasons in a row someone's snatched it in the final round. Bugger

    johnno2908 · 29/08/2016 at 07:06

    Well done mate. Did you still have gunston?

    shemmistwarehouse · 29/08/2016 at 07:24

    yeah still had gunston, all he needed was 58 but he still couldnt bloody handle it hahsha

      johnno2908 · 29/08/2016 at 07:27

      Last 3 weeks were horrendous. Bloke owes you a couple of beers haha. 46, 74 and 48.

    neil · 29/08/2016 at 08:34

    good work once again shem one of our own too .Would it be worth Jock asking you to write about your year .Compelling reading Jock

      shemmistwarehouse · 29/08/2016 at 15:49

      i would be down for that neil!

        neil · 29/08/2016 at 16:33

        hope it happens had trouble with trades used 2 each week to byes but few in byes just didn't get it right .cheers mate

    Danners · 29/08/2016 at 08:47

    Bad luck mate! Great effort though, at least you get some cash

    jockreynolds · 29/08/2016 at 09:24

    Congratulations on an absolutely massively significant season Shemm. We're all extremely proud of your mate.

      shemmistwarehouse · 29/08/2016 at 15:52

      cheers jock, thanks for the year buddy!

        jockreynolds · 29/08/2016 at 15:56

        You're absolutely welcome Shemm. You're a good egg mate

    SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 10:57

    Yeah not sure why they don't let us view the final teams at the moment. Perhaps Giant Killers had Volt as captain or something. You can view the final teams in RealDreamTeam right now (which uses exactly the same database software as SuperCoach) so bit of a head scratcher there.

    Either way to finish up 2nd out of 220,000 plus entries is a Herculean achievement so congratulations.

    You're $5.000 richer than the rest of us are this morning!

      shemmistwarehouse · 29/08/2016 at 12:02

      i can't find RealDreamTime?

        neil · 29/08/2016 at 12:20

        real dream TEAM SHEM cheers

        SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 12:21

        Just another fantasy comp which I enter each year along with AFL Fantasy and of course SuperCoach:

        https://sportsdeck.com/au/afl/dreamteam/lobby

        I just found it curious that users can view all the players in the final teams there but not in Supercoach for some reason when both comps use exactly the same interface. But details on the winning SuperCoach team will surely surface soon enough.

    JB_Tank · 29/08/2016 at 10:59

    Can't believe Gunston prick let you down – only 58 needed. Congrats on an incredible season, inspirational! Definitely should invite him on the podcast Jock.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/08/2016 at 11:55

    Ripping effort Shem.
    Congrats.
    So close well played.
    I mean who could predict the winner was gonna finish with nearly the top score for the year?
    And you still nearly got him
    Once again congrats mate enjoy the cash.

      Westy · 29/08/2016 at 12:31

      Well done Shem

    Hoot · 29/08/2016 at 12:29

    Cant believe it Shem. I suopose it'll be a while before you select Gunston again hey..

    Congrats regardless.

    If you get the time send the community your trades journey. We will be all very keen to see how it all unfolded.

      shemmistwarehouse · 29/08/2016 at 15:51

      i would be happy to do that mate!

    The Ranger · 29/08/2016 at 12:43

    Gutted you didn't get the big one but really well played Shem, amazing effort to be there at the last…bloody KPF's eh?!

    Moustachio · 29/08/2016 at 17:14

    Bad luck Shem! Still a phenomenal season. Gunston burnt a lot of us =(

    Would love to see your final team andddd your initial team, andddd which trades worked and did not work, VC choices, etc!

    You should start a blog or get jock and the lads to request a write up!

    On to 2017.

Westy · 29/08/2016 at 05:07

Thanks Jock et al for a fun year. You're all a font of knowledge.

Hope we have a repeat in 2017 but without the decimating injuries.

    jockreynolds · 29/08/2016 at 09:38

    Very welcome Westy! Hang around for the off season old mate – I'll be penning my first article of the preseason today.

next year · 29/08/2016 at 09:39

Thanks Jock & Co.
Just making some notes to myself for next year and thought I'd see what others thought.

Don’t pick players with injury history. i.e. Ablett, Wells Deloidio,
Pick swing men to swap MID’s with DEF & FWD
Premos & Rookies. No Mid priced.
Pick mature age rookies that have scored well in NAB cup
No FWD only. Pick MID-FWD. FWD only is too inconsistent.
TRADES:
No sideways or rage trading. Stick with premos (except if long term injury. i.e. 4 weeks)
Only trade up & down
Don’t trade in first 2 weeks
Aim for 4 trades for finals

    I N Pieman · 29/08/2016 at 10:25

    Like your thinking there Next Year. I'm thinking along the same lines

    Steeeve · 29/08/2016 at 10:46

    A wise strategy for sure. But you mentioned Wells. Even with his history, he was a no brainer at his price and proved to be a keeper even though he did miss a few games. Jaeger O'Meara will be in the same boat for mine next year (might not become a keeper but will net you coin and points if his body holds up).
    I'll be taking a close look at mids in the $550k range. I chose Wines over Parker this year and it cost me bigtime. But I got Joel Selwood for that price as well and he was excellent. Picking the right underpriced premo keepers is pivotal.

    johnno2908 · 29/08/2016 at 13:41

    Planned my team around the byes. I came out of the byes around 350th last year and ended up finishing around 1000th. I put it down to bringing in blokes like Mitch Wallis and Motlop post byes as the reason for the fade. So as tempted as I was this year, avoided the Motlop/ Clay Smith type player and only traded in guys I wanted in my final team. Came out of the byes around 40th, finished 10th overall. Hopefully move up another 9 spots next year!!

      shemmistwarehouse · 29/08/2016 at 15:54

      hopefully its us top 2 johnno!

        johnno2908 · 29/08/2016 at 17:40

        Can dream. Got the email from HS today for finishing 10th. Pretty stoked with $1000.

SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 11:23

Well done Higgo who had a blinder in the final round with 2617 to cement a top 1000 finish this season. Bouncing back nicely after a relatively mediocre 2015 by his lofty standards, if memory serves correctly? Looks like he takes the chocolates among the Inner Sanctum at least in terms of season rankings.

JR Brumby FC on the other hand appears headed for a full club review with the coach required to appear before the board to demonstrate why he should keep his job into 2017! 🙂

    Mac · 29/08/2016 at 11:55

    Could the boys show their starting team and finished team for the season to just see how different their side looks and what mistakes they made throughout the year? Would be might helpful for the community!

      SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 12:28

      I agree Mac. A lot of lessons could be learned on the things that went both right and wrong for the Inner Sanctum teams this season. My own side had its own hits and misses in 2016 and I'm always striving to improve like everyone else so the more knowledge and discussion the better I reckon.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/08/2016 at 11:58

    Didn't they sign JR up to a long term contract at the start of the year? 🙂

      SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 12:10

      I guess you could probably argue that Jock is the Dimma of fantasy footy then Trigger. 😉

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/08/2016 at 12:35

        Was thinking more Ross Lyon.
        Wiley old fox who has a proven record, experience and knows what it takes to win.
        Will take it on the chin this year, restock and re evaluate, look and learn from what went wrong, rejig and come back bigger and better in 2017.

          SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 12:46

          Even better Trigger with the Saints connection too.

          2017 could be quite the defining season for JR Brumby FC. Does Jock have the skills and attributes required to rebuild a list?? The fantasy footy world will be keenly watching.

      I N Pieman · 29/08/2016 at 12:38

      Jock's place in the JR Preseason Crew League is under the microscope! Horrid season from the Father. I'll probably give him another season to bounce back

    jockreynolds · 29/08/2016 at 16:13

    This year was all about… rebuilding…,

I N Pieman · 29/08/2016 at 13:01

SCA you'll be get an email from Throttlefinger shortly inviting you into our private chat group for SC guns. We've had a drop out due to other commitments so there is a spot. It's on Facebook messenger

    SCaddict · 29/08/2016 at 14:05

    Cheers Pieman – will keep an eye out. It'll at least force me to finally sign up for a Facebook account and get with the 21st century by the looks ha ha.

      I N Pieman · 29/08/2016 at 14:53

      Your going to need Facebook. Sign up & get to share in the excitement of looking at people post what their eating for breakfast!

johnno2908 · 29/08/2016 at 13:18

Any chance of getting invited into a good league next year?

    I N Pieman · 29/08/2016 at 13:32

    I've got a couple. I'll be turfing a few spuds who dragged rank down. What's ur email

      Nifty · 29/08/2016 at 14:31

      Ruthless! I like it!

      In fact Dimma could take a leaf or two out of your book down at Tigerland.

      pod · 30/08/2016 at 06:35

      If there's any spots left Pieman, I'm keen!! [email protected]

    Hit me up an email at [email protected] with your team name and rank. Anyone is welcome

    Moustachio · 29/08/2016 at 14:01

    Ditto for me, ended up top 200 which is an improvement of about a billion times from last years! At this rate ill be #1 in 2017 for sure, so jump on before my price change kicks in

      Moustachio · 29/08/2016 at 17:24

neil · 29/08/2016 at 13:30

Leppisch gone now for the worst coach at present without doubt.Each year gone further down the ladder bye bye figjam give Burns a go wont do any worse

    I N Pieman · 29/08/2016 at 13:37

    Funny that. I thought Buckley was the only coach that had taken the team backwards each year. But Leppa was good for early draft picks

swannylover · 29/08/2016 at 21:43

strange, giant killers is living in victoria but is in the western australian league
