I'm breaking every rule in SC this year and some you may break down in tears just looking at this monstrosity of a team but I'm breaking the shackles of seasons past and going on a suicidal path of experimentation.

DEF
Rance Adams Hibberd
Langdon Scharenberg Hampton

MID
Dangerfield J Kennedy Sloane
Martin Bontempelli Fyfe
Beams Myers

RUCK
Sandilands Giles

FWD
Macrae Heeney Touk Touk
Roughead Rioli Hoskin Elliot

Didn't bother listing bench rookies they will change 10000000 times

Unleash your hatred now.

discojim

It is the time to experiment – I like it!
Tell my why Myers & Riloi please Moshed.

Kev

Myers criminally cheap for a bloke who averaged 86 in 2014. If he's named (and he should) he's a must have

Moshedpotatoes

It's Willie Rioli just a rookie subject to change but I do think he can sneak into West Coast best 22

Luskin Star

Love the rucks. Doing that myself. Think you should reconsider Hibberd. Avg last time he played in mid 80s. I do t see a reason to be confident of that changing.

Vchap

I really like langdon, his got a lot of talent but i dont see him averaging over 90 probably not worth a spot

Derek

someone told me Roughie might not play until may

Moshedpotatoes

Yeah Roughie is likely to be changed I just love the bloke. Him coming in mid year would be ideal to offload that stagnating rookie we all have on the bench at that time cough Menadue cough

Wighty

How the hell do I get myself setup to initiate discussions ?

My team is

Heater, Berry, Ryan, Montagna, Scharenberg, Stewart (Rookie 1 and 2)

Bont, JPK, Danger, Cripps (Car), Beams, Fyfe, Pendles, Powell Pepper ( Graham, Bowes, Myers)

Goldy, sandi (Strnadica)

Deledio, Pickett (Car), Caddy, Dahl, Macrae, Eddy (Stewart Ess, Darcy)

Set and forget mids, cash cows on all lines hopefully.

jezzahill

Early days obviously, but happy with the structure.

DEF: Shaw, Laird, Johannisen, Hampton, Scharenberg, Berry (Ryan, Stewart)

MID: Dangerfield, Kennedy, Bontempelli, Fyfe, Beams, Swallow, Brodie, Powell-Pepper (Myers, Wigg, Ahern)

RUCK: Gawn, Goldstein (Strnadica)

FWD: Kennedy, Dahlhaus, Heeney, Ryder, Simpkin, McKay (Lebois, Eddy)

Matt

Very nice, similar to mine, but not sure about Kennedy at F1????

jezzzahill

Yeah I'm not 100% sold on him yet either, but I can see him having another good year. WC will be there abouts again and whenever they play weak teams at home Kennedy goes bananas. 16 scores of 80+ last year means he's not the worst option and a bit of a POD.

Kev

Like the structure, jezza.

Fyfe, beams, swallow in the guts is ballsy. I'd take 2 and try to get Bont down to M4

Jimi

I'm leaning much more heavily towards a gun's a rookies structure this year (except the mids, as always there is too much fallen premo value to be had there).

Goes without saying that this is an early iteration.

DEF: Adams, Liard, JJ, A.McGrath, L.Ryan, T.Stewart
MIDS: Pendles, Zerrett, Bont, Fyfe, Heppell, D.Beams, D.Swallow, D.Myers
RUC: Gawn, Goldy
FWD: Dahl, Heeney, McCluggage, J.Stewart, A.Black, J.Pickett.

Joshua Bankes

Straight up guns and rookies for me.

DEF: Shaw, Boyd, Rance, Stewart, McGrath, Ryan (Long, Witherden)
MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Neale, Bontempelli, Treloar, Powell-Pepper (Brodie, Bowes, Graham)
RUC: Goldstein, Grundy (Lynch)
FWD: Dahlhous, Macrae, McCluggage, Pickett, Simpkin, Gallucci (Florent , Eddy)

Joshua Bankes

And also have Berry in my mid

Kev

Nice looking premo's. Try to scrape together the cash for a better F3

Joshua Bankes

im not really confident on any forward premos at the moment so thats why i havent gone for a quality f3

Liam

Still chopping and changing a bit with the structure and players but liking the look of this team.

DEF: Doc, Adams, Laird, T.McDonald, Hartlett, Newman (Stewart, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Pendles ,GAJ, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, Myers, SPP (Freeman,Ahern,Barrett)
RUC: Gawn, Sandi (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Ryder, McCluggage, Ainsworth, Black, Pickett (Rioli, Eddy)

Would love to hear some thoughts on my team.
Cheers Liam.

Krups

Maybe your 2/4 FWD lineup is off balance a little? Maybe one more non rookie player at F3?
Like the ryder back up for sandi

Liam

Yeah is a bit light, lots of good rookies in the forward line so feel liek they could do a role until I work out who I want in my forward line as there is not many options.

Derek

It seems most people who are going with sandi in Ruck are also playing Ryder in Forwards for cover.

Not sure whether two mid-pricers make a premium.

Liam

I think Ryder will do enough to be top 10 in forward and Sandi if fit can easy average 95 plus and acts as a great stepping stone to Goldy/Grundy.

Derek

Is Lobbe still playing for Port? or did they get rid of him?

Liam

Still playing but Ryder will be number 1 ruck.

Jib Jib

True but if your running Sandi at R2 then you must have some ruck cover at F3/4. Don't think Ryder is the answer though, too much $$$ for a burnman. Better value a Boyd, or Nankervis IMO.

Adam

Currently adopting an unorthodox structure and would greatly appreciate some feedback.
Def: K Simpson, H Shaw, L Montagna, H Hartlett, R Murphy, M Scharenebrg, ( E Vicker-Wills, N Newman)
Mids: P Dangerfield, S Pendlebury, D Hannebery, J Kennedy, J Selwood, N Fyfe, D Swallow, S Selwood, (D Myers, S Powell-Pepper, J Graham)
Rucks: M Gawn, A Sandilands, (L Strandica)
Fwds: C McCarthy, H McLuggage, K Turner, J Bowes, O Florent, A Black, (J Pickett, B Eddy)

Krups

Reckon the FWD line is waaaayyyy too light on mate

Liam

Got the same structure in defence with the 5 premos, but in saying that I would maybe downgrade one of them as well one of Selwood or Swallow to get a few more premos in your fwd line.

Kev

Nice, Adam. Reckon you'll be caught short with cash generation though

Derek

there is alot of tooth length in defence

Ryan

I like your idea. Not sure but didnt the overall Supercoach winner have the same structure with his team last year but did the same with his backline…

Krups

Def: Simpson, Doc, JJ, McGrath , Scrimshaw , Berry ( Scharenberg , Ryan
Mid: Danger, Pendles, Kennedy, Treloar, Murphy, OMeara, Taranto , McCluggage ( Petrevski -seton, Jarman, Junker)
Ruck: Martian , Sandi ( Cameron)
Fwd: Dalh, Macrae, Heeney, Ryder, Ainsworth, Long ( Brown,Eddy )

Liam

Would downgrade a few of your expensive premos and upgrade Murphy and/or Martin to uber premiums.

Krups

thanks bloke. Which premos should i downgrade?

Liam

Jesus not premos rookies.
Would go
Taranto > Myers
Petrevski-seton > Powell-Pepper
McGrath > Stewart
Martin > Gawn.

Would also have Hampton over Scrimshaw.

Krups

Lol no worries. What about Newman also as rookie in backline

Liam

Yeah he is a great option as well.

Kimmyd

Also Simpson, docherty and jj all have round 11 byes and you also have Dahl and macrame also in fwd line that's a lot of premo keepers out already in round 11 keep that in mind in you are trying to win overall. Range has round 12 bye and Heath shaw round 13 just a few other options for you.

Kimmyd

Heeney also has found 11 bye I just realised which is why I'm not starting with him. So you don't want 3 Feds and 3 defender premises out in the same round, I would change 2-3 of them if I were you.

IDontLose

I've got a fairly vanilla sort of team, should gain some flavour towards the start of the season

DEF: Docherty, Adams, Johannisen (Hibberd, Ryan)
McGrath, Scharenberg, Berry

MID: Dangerfield, Treloar, Bontempelli (Powell-Pepper, Petrevski-Seton, Freeman)
Fyfe, Beams, Swallow,
Brodie, Galluci

RUC: Gawn, Goldstein (Strndica)

FWD: Dahlhaus, Caddy, Heeney (Black, Eddy)
McCluggage, Ainsworth, Bowes

Matt

Like it, but not sure about Caddy & Beams, who has admitted his knee will forever be cooked?

Luskin Star

Thats big news on beams Matt. Where did you hear that. Not doubting you just super interested in checking out the story. I have him in my side this time of year, every year and have to drop him before the start. Was hoping this year would be diff.

wombatsfc
Matt

in the article below — > "i'm going to have this problem for the rest of my career… still going to have some battles." Doesn't sound promising for me, unfortunately, A.K.A. Cooney 09' onwards.

I N Pieman

Shaw, laird, Adams, JJ, McGrath, Scharenberg, Newman, Ryan
Danger, Pendles, Gary, Fyfe, Beams, Murphy, Swallow, Myers, SPP, Scheer, Graham
Gawn, Sandi, Strandica
Heeney, Ryder, Bennell, The luggage, J Smith, Long, Eddy, Smith

Kev

God, Fyfe, Beams, Murphy, Swallow… Missing a few heads, shoulders, knees, and toes in that lot!

Newman to tear the comp a new one if he gets a shot

I N Pieman

Hoping 1-2 of those boys is a keeper Kev. I agree on Newman Kev. Named round 1 he's a must

Luskin Star

Given your fondness for picks 30- 80 i have surprised to see McGraph and Luggage get a birth. You must have big opinion of both

I N Pieman

Massive opinion Luskin. I'll reveal why in due course. It's isually picks 18-40 I'm fond of

Luskin Star

Never was good with numbers. I'll look forward to your articles on the big 2 rookies. Dont have them in my side but you have been known to infuence my opinion

I N Pieman

I've got a couple of crackers coming up

TRIGGER HAPPY

Mate that is a kenny rogers team right there.
Laird, adams and to a lesser extent jj in the back line hopefully they all hold up
Gaz (huge pod for you there), fyfe, beams, murph and swallow – played about 10 games between them last year
Sandi – hard to pass up his value
heeney #1 fwd!, ryder and bennell

Wow if that comes off pure genius, but for mine the cards are stacked against you.

lots of water but ….

I N Pieman

That won't be my round 1 team trigger. No way in a millions years. Just playing around ATM

The German

Like a few things in Pieman's team. Solid backline. Some real PODS, but as stated you'll change these 1000 times as preseason starts and roles develop. Love the selections in the Mids, taking a risk, but that's what the game is about. Murph is very good value if he is fit. Same with Swallow, I am keen on S Selwood myself over Swallow.

Heeney……choo choo jump aboard. Hopefully will get mid minutes.

I N Pieman

Cheers German. If s Selwood is not tagging them he's real value. The question is what is his role

Derek

who is The luggage?

Derek

which Smith is that in the forward line?

I N Pieman

Hugh Mcluggae & that's Tim smith for the Dee's

fatboyfat7

Have Scheer, SPP and Graham myself sitting on the pine. All in all I really have a similar midfield but lackly a mid/fwd DPP… Pickett may have to get a spot instead of one of those boys, maybe even instead of Myers….

Tim

DEFS: Premos: Doc (587,142), Rance (531,630), Tuohy (443,200)  Rookies: McGrath (211,800), Scimshaw (184,800), Scharenberg (164,00)

Bench: Ahern (123,900) Bolton (117,300)

Luskin Star

Like the Fiorini pick Tim. Going to be a gun

Tim

a lot of people are telling to go with swallow but look at Fiorini 2 games 46,125 i know his first game isn't that impressive but his 2nd game shows there is value there and with o'meara and prestia gone who is going to step up? swallow, miller, fiorini?

AMAC

Mate Ahern's got a busted knee. no chance to play 2017

Captain Awesome

DEF. Doc. T Adams. B Murph. A McGrath L Keefe. Berry.
Int. L Ryan. T Stewart
MID Danger. Hanners. Treloar. Bont. Fyfe Beams. Omeara. Swallow. Int. P. Pepper. Myers J Graham
RUCK Max. Sandi. Strainyadick
FWD. Dahl. Heeney. Ryder. McLuggage Bowes Pickett.
Int. Bolton Eddy

Gonna be a fair bit of switching going on before the season begins as with everyone else. Especially after a few cans

Stevo Rivo

Guns & Rookies to start – bound to change over the pre-season…

Def: Docherty, Shaw, Rance, Marchbank, A.McGrath, Witherden (L. Ryan, T.Stewart);

Mid: Danger, Martin, Bont, Fyfe, T.Adams, Beams, Bowes, Powell-Pepper (Myers, J.Graham, Jarman);

Rucks: Gawn, Grundy (Cameron);

Fwds: Dahlhaus, Gunston, T.Nankervis, McCulggage, Ainsworth, Battle (S. Bolton, B. Eddy).

How's it looking Jock & Community????

Kev

Mids look a bit thin, Stevo

Luskin Star

Think about putting Adams in defence. If he averages 105 its only fair for a mid but its great for a defender

TOMAHAWK

Is Nankervis a GUN or a ROOKIE?

Stevo Rivo

Neither, a DPP option though have since opted for Ryder.

Alferton

Def: Docherty, Adams, Rance, Scharenberg, Mitch Hibberd, Ryan, (Stewart, Long)

Mids: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Fyfe, Heppell, Beams, Swallow, Myers, ( Powell-Pepper, Barrett, Graham)

Rucks: Gawn, Sandilands ( Strnadica)

Fwds: Dahlhaus, Macrea, Heeney, Ryder, Black, Tim Smith, (Lebois, Eddy).

hedski

Rucks have been doin my head in, normally set forget but I'm lookin at the "Sex on the Beach" combo this year to spread some $ to the guts.

Doch Vince Z.Williams (Newman)
Bob McGrath Berry (Ryan)

Danger GAJ Hannas (Petr-Set)
Treloar Fyfe Heppell (Ahearn)
Swallow Myers (Graham)

Big Stiffy/ Sandiballs (Stradniclush)

Rooey Heeney Ryder (Eddy)
Luggage Pickett T.Smith (Bolton)

Rooks subject to normal change, let's face it they all are bar Danger.
Pick away cheers.

Kev

Love your mids, hedski. Worried about Bob Murphy a bit. 34 and coming back from a knee.

I N Pieman

Don't mind it at all Hedski. But I'm with Kev here I'm a bit worried about old Bob

hedski

Thanks lads, yeah Bobs a worry but could slash a rook or two and upgrade him a bit I'll suss it out. Cheers.

fatboyfat7

Nice to see someone else line up with Bernie in the defense… I'm EXTREMELY surprised he's not featuring in more teams….

hedski

Yeah I reckon he'll go well in an improving demons outfit fatty, tooth length not that long yet, cheers.
(Have slotted Hooker in for Bob ATM, might even slash Doch and up Hooker a bit)

AMAC

Hurley ahead of Hooker by the length of the straight

hedski

Yeah have Heppell and Myers and Ryder ATM don't wanna over load on the peptides

Moustachio

3 sub 60 scores in his last 5 games, reckon the tooth length might be catchin up with him??

hedski

Nice one Moustasch didn't see that, food for thought

SheriffsBigRig

Def: doch,Adams, jj, t-mack, a otten, e Vick-will. Bench: L Ryan, n larkey
Mid: gaz, dusty, bont, Fyfe, hepp, beams, swallow, a witherden. Bench: c brown, s Bolton, j graham.
Ruck: sandy, s martin. bench: l strnadica.
Fwd: macrae, t lynch, heeney, Ryder, Bowes, Balic. Bench: t miles, t smith.

Going in heavy with comeback kids, but very confident fyfe beams will return in good shape and finish top 8, rolling the dice a bit with Heppell, Ryder and swallow. Pre season form pending with those selections but with their ability should come back into form straight away. Thoughts please

Kev

Otten is not best 22.

Beastiano

DEF: T.Adams, Lloyd, Hartlett, Murphy, McGrath, Logue (Scrimshaw, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Hannas, Bont, Fyfe, D. Beams, Swallow, Petrevski-Seton (Berry, Myers, O'Hanrahan)
RUC: Gawn, Ryder (Eagles)
FWD: J.Kennedy, Heeney, Mccluggage, Ainsworth, Bowes, Gallucci (Rioli, Eddy)

Will only be some minor tweaking to find a better R2 but am more than happy to roll. Preseason watch for rookies is the no brainer.

@t_woof

Like the Lloyd selection Beastiano!

Jacob

DEF Adams, Hurley, Tuohy, McGrath, Scharenberg, Ryan BCH Berry, Stewart
MID DANGER, GAJ, JPK, Gray, Tom Mitchell, O'meara, swallow, mcclugage BCH Powell- Pepper, Myers, florent

Hey lads, good to be back for SuperCoach 2017! Thoughts on my team would be great.

DEF: Simpson, Shaw, Laird, McGrath, Berry and Ryan (Long and Stewart)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Bont, Fyfe, Heppell, Swallow, Brodie and Myers (Powell-Pepper, Fisher and Graham)
RUC: Gawn and Goldy (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Deledio, Heeney, Taranto, McCluggage and Bowes (Williams and Eddy)

11.5k left with a not so good bye structure of (R9) 5, (R11) 9, (R12) 4, (R13) 11. Cheers!

Krups

Not a lot of teams having Omeara????

Billy

To big of a risk

Gaveday

Omeara ? Locked in.

Harvey

Swallow looking like the better option. Previously had JOM but his injury history keeps me worried.

Tim

Yeah a lot of people are staying clear of JOM only because of the history of his injury more commonly seen in NFL the average amount of games played coming back from an injury like that is 45 but that was between 1994-2004

Gaveday
Kev

Lacks some star power, gaveday. No Danger, Pendles, Hanners/JPK. Backline needs Shaw or Doc at D1

Gaveday

The stars will come when the Rockies emerge – however my midfield is locked

Luskin Star

Id consider moving Bennell to the fwds. If he scores 105 its an ok score for a mid but a great score for a fwd.

AMAC

Bennell did his calf (again) in training. (fact.)
Bennell was out with Yarran. (Rumour I just made up! 😉 )

Steeeve

Back: Shaw, Laird, Adams, JJ, rooks
Mid: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Fyfe, Beams, D Swallow, rooks
Ruck: Goldy, Sandi, rookie fwd/ruck
Fwd: Dahl, Heeney, Wingard, Ryder, rooks

Keenbutclueless

Think Beams is M6 at best. Personally think having all three of Heeney, Wingard and Ryder in your forward line is a huge risk. Would suggest trying to get one more premium mid in there at the expense of one or more of these three

Steeeve

Hoping there is money to be made in the mids.

The forward line is a mess but I like Wingard and Ryder. Wingard has averaged 110 then 890 then 100 then 80. Surely he lifts again this year. Ryder can finish up as F7 ruck cover. And think Heeney will be the NUMBER ONE FORWARD.

psycho muppet

JJ, Tuohy, hibberd, S May, Bob Murphy L Keefe

Danger,Pendles, Heppell, Seb Ross, M Murphy, D Beams, D Swallow A McGrath ( really want him in defence with my def/mid swing on the bench)

Grundy/ Sandi

Macrae,Heeney, Hrovat,T Boyd, C Mcarthey Mcluggage

Morrow

I like your team for being different mate but reckon you'll be doing lots of sideways trading when the season begins.

Will Hibberd/May/Keefe/Heppell/Ross/Murphy/Hrovat all be top 8 in their respective areas? or are they cash generation selections? IF they are neither I don't think they warrant a spot in your team! Maybe one or two of them but think you've got too many "maybe" breakout contenders.

Good luck for the season.

Westy

Does no one want Jobe?

Scouser

Hey Jock, conversely do you think that he might also have a burning desire to set the record straight in a swansong season?

Banned last season, handed his brownlow back amd captain of one of the biggest and proudest clubs in the land who will need to work hard to remove that dark dank smear of their guernseys. I'm thinking he may have more to prove than anyone and could come out of the blocks on fire, can't see him sustaining it if he does but could offer a very nice step up to a ultra-premo early on.

Personally I feel he is too much of a Clubman to line up round 1 if his heart or head wasn't in it (handing back his chas shows this to me) so is in my thoughts currently and will watch keenly during nab as significant value there in early scores and $$ to ignore.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Early dayz

Doc, jj, harlett, murph, hampton, berry. (ryan, newman)
Danger, jpk, treloar, gray, sloane, fyfe, beams, myers. (scheer, graham, fwd/mid rook)
Martin, sandi (strand…)
Dahl, heeney, bennell, mccarthy, bowes,/mclug, Galluci. (Eddy, pickett)

This is my gun midfield version

Other option drop a mid sloane maybe to torranto/brodie and upgrade ruck to big maxy.

Its only Jan so lots of water….

Kev

Reckon you need R/F to cover Sandi, Trig.

Seen Hampton a lot. Don't see where he fits at the Crows. Plenty of competition for his position.

Luskin Star

Dont agree on the ruck cover Kev. Dont like having someone in the team to cover for someone else. Its like setting a field in cricket to defend bad bowling. With you on Hampton though.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Cheers lusk.

hampton just thrown in there could be any number of players, could become McGrath or schareberg etc

Liked martins back end to the season, apparently fixed what was wrong in the pre season. Surely fagan lets him go in the guts by himself and a stinger took out their back up ruck for awhile, if rucking solo and not playing fwd I'm in.

Sandi I'm hoping makes it to rd 12 where the plan is to upgrade after gawns bye.

Luskin Star

I wouldnt make that change mate. Gawn will be cheaper later plus Martin and Sandi are both capable of scoring 105 regulalrly. Martin was injury impacted last year.

I N Pieman

No Pendles trigger! Hartlett is an interesting one, could be gold could burn you. I'm not sure about him

TRIGGER HAPPY

Cant afford them all INP need another 50-60k to go sloane – pendles.
danger lock, jpk figure he has 5-10 more points per game now tmitch gone, gray pod big fan, treloar just getting started, fyfe improving every day – value, sloane can go big but would love to change to pendles.
guess if a cheapo rook performs during preseason could dowwngrade a excy rook and upgrade to pendles.
Hartlett yeah not sure either but need to save some cash to afford all those mids calculated risk guess

Moustachio

Don't see any evidence of Titch stealing points from JPK… RGray maybe better as upgrade target after his bye (can see whether he is gonna crack the shits again this year).

Vchap

Do people think jarrod witts is to expensive for ruck cover? Leaning towards him as im not convinced by any of the rf options and would much rather have that extra midfider in the forward line

The Bont

I think he's a huge shot mate , Nicholls will go down and they'll throw Witts through . As far as price might be a bit much for r3 , if you have sandi better off having Ryder in the fwd line to cover , if you've gone goldy and Gawn would go darcy Cameron from the swans at 117k .
Ohh and also my team
Back – docherty , heater, joey , Ryan , berry , Newman
Middle – danger , pendles , hanners , titchell , beams , swallow, Myers
Forward- Dahl , macrae , heeney , Bowes , black , eddy

The Bont

Ruck – Gawn and sauce Jacobs

Moustachio

More a case of being too shite.

Kyle

I don't like any fwds so far so waiting on rookies to pop up and hopefully rest of field makes up the points. Purely keepers from the get go as every year I seem to sideways trade.

Doch, shaw, Adams,laird, JJ, Ryan

Danger,hanna, Bont, Fyfe, Heppell, beams, Meyers, rookie

Gawn, goldy

Dahl, heeney, rookie rookie rookie rookie.

C'mon fwd gems!

Jib Jib

That's bold. Really going to leave your knackers swinging in the breeze if no decent rookie fwds step up

Luskin Star

Got 200k put aside for when Pieman convinces me to pick McGraph and Luggage but until then here is my team

Doc, T Adams, Hurley, Thurlow, Scharenberg, Berry, ryan, Newman
Danger, Pendles, Merritt, Cripps, Fyfe, Beams, O'Meara, Swallow, myers, scheer, Graham
Sandi, Giles, doughnut valued at 102000
Dahlhaus, lids, Bennell, Knight, Thomas, Williams, long, eddy

I N Pieman

I think when preseason games begin you won't need me to convince you on McGrath & luggage. That's a very deep midfield Luskin!!! But I like it

Gaveday

Problem with Giles is Lycett is back after 3-4 rounds isn't he? Vardy could always get the nod too….

I N Pieman

Think you'll find Lycett might be a little longer than that. Giles would have to do some big convincing to role the dice in him

Luskin Star

Lycett expected back around time of byes. By then Giles will have had 3 games where he might score about 70 and 8 where 90 is possible. That will do me for less than 300k. Intend trading to Gawn, Goldy or Martin ( if he has recaptured 2015 form) at that stage.

I N Pieman

Solid plan

Moustachio

They'd have to average 80 to justify the price, much safer ways to make cash that will also leave you cash to buy the top premos.

PS Hope Mccluggage is on a serious peptide program over summer, you look at his height/weight he is a string bean. Doubt he will line up r1.

Stewy_the_Swan

My team atm:
Def – Doc, JJ, Mills plus rookies (McGrath, Witherden, Stewart, Hinge, Ryan)
Mid – Danger, JPK, Neale, Sloane, O'Meara, Swallow plus rookies (Berry, SPP, Myers, Drew, Graham)
Ruck – Gawn, Martin (Cameron)
Fwd – Dalhaus, McCrae, Lynch, Heeney, Nankervis(Ruck DPP) plus rookies (McCluggage, Pickett, Eddy)

Rookies obviously subject to change.

Keenbutclueless

No Fyfe? Neale is in for back surgery. Like the Mills selection

Luskin Star

Mills is definately going under the radar. Swans have said he and Heeney likely to share Mitchell role.

Very keen on both Mills and Heeney this year.

Reckon you could swap Kennedy for one more premium defender. I think the premo options in Defence are more solid than the forward line. Kennedy especially as a KPP in a team that might see supply reduced with no NicNat.

Stirlsy

W/Coast shark ok, and im expecting them to go ok even without NicNat, they were up and down last year with him, they will float around 5th most of the year, im in the west and see plenty of them JK avg 98 last year so he will be in the mix, early days yet plenty will change and i don't expect many will start with him. So he stays for now.

Luskin Star

Rocky is interesting. If Beams holds up his output could fall. In the games they have played together Rocky averages 100 only. Way down on what he does with no Beams.

Keenbutclueless

Hmm that's a great insight. Thanks. Rocky was my Bruyn manoeuvre for 2017. His early draw made him a great VC/ Capt option with Danger. I actually had dreams of him hitting 700k and selling him off. Might put Selwood in instead. Great for the bye structure. Thanks again for the insight.

The German

Hartlett is interesting. Big POD, but will he score well? Is he going to be a top 10 by season end? I like your other three
top priced, perhaps try to bring one of those up to Doc or Shaw. Hard to do that though.

I've had enough of Rocky, burned too many trades getting rid of him on an injury, then back in when in form 10 weeks later, only to be injured yet again. Massive risk with this guy. Beams will hopefully hold up and will be one of the best steals this year. Unsure on Mitchell also, just unsure on his talent vs the Hawthorn way.

Rest is pretty solid. Good start, now to restructure about 1000 times before round 1!

Moustachio

That's like… 6 games.

Stirlsy

Be interesting to see what we (Pies) do with Shaz play him early or bring him on slowly, unsure on pies back 6 set up they look light on to me and Bucks wont have a job next year because of it.
You look light on with the fwds.

Jib Jib

Like everyone else my team is really just speculative ATM. My final structures will depend on the availability of quality rookies come rd one. This year I will try to stuff as many into my team as possible even if it means being slightly unbalanced for the first few weeks.

Adams Laird JJ McGrath Scharenberg Newman (Ryan Stewart)
Danger Pendles Zerrett Bont Fyfe Beams Swallw Luggage (SPP Myers Graham)
Gawn Goldy (Hunter)
Dahl Heeney Boyd Stewart Black Pickett (Smith Eddy)

Luskin Star

If you think luggage is good enough to be in starting lineup then you should move him to fwds. Whatever he scores will be of more value there.

Jib Jib

Just there for structure ATM.

JJB

Zerrett wont score as highly as he did in 2016 with all the Ess players back.

Jib Jib

Yeah I understand why people think that but I actually think he'll be just as good, hopefully even better. He's arguably Essendon's best mid and he's not going to lose his spot. This year he proved himself to be a hard ball getting, high disposal, high DE% tackle machine. If he was more of an outside player I'd be more concerned.

Jib Jib

Ok this quote today from Guy McKenna re the returning players concerns me:

“The beauty about the big tractors coming back in is those lighter fellas – Darcy, even ‘Junior’ Merrett … instead of putting his head in the trough all the time, he can get some ball on the outside and really hurt the opposition.”

Positional change for Zerrett coming up?

Keenbutclueless

See a lot of teams with Docherty. Really think that's a steep price for a defender. He has only produced one year of that level. Given the other solid options in Defence, plus the likelihood that his price will come down, really think he is an upgrade option and spend the money on a proven mid premium.

Luskin Star

It was his 4th season and his average has gone up each year. Factory in also that there is nothing to suggest a role change and it doesnt smell like a fluke to me.

Jib Jib

Agree his score is no fluke and I expect him to be in the top 3 defenders this year, but I also agree with Keenbutclueless and I'll be waiting for his price to come down.

I N Pieman

The fact is he is priced at a price he's never ever achieved. He's coming down. No doubt about it. That's when you strike

Moustachio

I am not afraid to say that I immediately discount any team proposing to start Doc. There's just no value there.

A very different looking team! I think what it is missing is Captain options. I was strong on Rockliff also, but received some good advice re his average when Beams plays. See above. Basically leaves you with Fyfe.

Matt Robison

Was thinking Treloar as Captain… starting to become more consistent with only 6 scores under 100+ last year and a season low of 73. Coming into his prime. I initially had Patty Cripps in place of Rockliff prior to the back injury.

Moustachio

Was not good advice due to being based on very low number of games, not to mention whether either of them were carrying injuries.

Stirlsy

yep that team is way out of the norm

The German

Alrighty lads, first shot at it. Rookies will come and go as season approaches, but, here's my take on it:

DEF: Shaw, T Adams, Tuouy, McGrath, Scharenberg, Hampton (Newman, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Kennedy, Fyfe, Beams, S Selwood, Pet-Set, McLuggage (Myers, SPP, Berry)
R: Gawn, Jacobs, (Strnadica)
F: Dhouse, Heeney, T Miller, Ryder, Ainsworth, A Black (Pickett, S Bolton).

Going for Tuouy for a POD. Same goes with Selwood, who's back and fit.

Keenbutclueless

I'm in the Touk Miller is a trap camp. Maybe cos I got burned by Lonergan last year. Other than that, really solid.

The German

Yep, agree with you here. I guess these type of variable players will come and go by season start. We are really stuck with Mid type players in the forward line. Unless something pops up, may stick with him, though depending on preseason form and role more so.

I N Pieman

I'm also in the touk Miller is a trap camp. Pretty solid indeed German. I wrote on a piece for jock on SPP, have a read. He's not a bloke you want on the field. And no swallow? Interesting

The German

Yes, I think he's one of the guys that will be on the in/out of my team throughout the preseason. Looking for a good option in the price range that Miller has. Or less should that be.

Love your writeup on SPP. Will keep him on the bench for sure. I've also upgraded Pet-Set to Swallow. However, that leaves me with a risky four in the midfield; Beams, Fyfe, S Selwood and Swallow. I think Selwood and Fyfe should be ok, the other two are a risk due to injury.

Thanks for the feedback!

Luskin Star

If miller gets a lot of mid time he is a great pick. Do t think he will though. Suns have Ablett, Barlow, Hanley, Swallow, Fiorini, Hall, rischitelli, lyons, lomergan and all tne rookies they grabbed.i think the only one there he will definately be higher in pecking order than is lonergan

Alferton

Hi all.
See Rance or Laird in a fair few teams. Thoughts on best.option or go with both? Very new to super coach. Thanks.

Luskin Star

Welcome to supercoach. Be warned it takes over your life. Think you want both in your team at the end of the year. So if you can afford both i would. If picking one would go for laird. He is going into yr5 while rance is going into yr9 so you would expect more improvement on previous year from laird.

Alferton

Thank you. Already has. Can't stop thinking supercoach.

Danners

I start with both last year and both should be fairly good options again this year. Can't really see them drop in average too much

That's a valid point. Ive only got $600 to spare so I will see how the rookies go in the NAB cup.

abs

my first time commenting on this forum so please take it easy on me 🙂

.

ive gone for 13 keepers , which includes 4 from defence , 5 forwards , and 4 mids ,

2 rucks and 4 mids will be upgraded , before the bye rounds once their value increases

i will be completing my backline & forward line with premos once the rookies do their job 🙂

.

B…Docherty ,Simpson ,Adams , Tuohy , ..rookie x 4

M..Danger , Ablett , Kennedy , Fyfe , Beams , O’meara , Swallow , Myers ..rookie x 3

R..sandilands, Giles …(strnadica)

F…Mcrae .Caddy , Wingard , Heeney , Ryder …rookie x 3

Luskin Star

Generally like the team. Got issue with Tuohy. .A lot of people picking him on expectation that he will get Enright role but i dont think he is good enough to produce enright numbers.There are 2 Wingards. Depends which one turns up. If the good one does he is a steal

Danners

Nice start abs. Probably need a solid premo ruck. Giles and Sandilands probably aren't 100% reliable in my book. Simpson could be mid season upgrade so there is less risk with him. Otherwise nice team

Derek

I think Defense is very hard this to find value, Defense is always the lowest scoring area and therefore we should spend the least of our starting cash there. Our initial $10m needs to work harder earlier to score points.

This year there are some great choices for premiums, much better than previous years and the top 10 look clear cut, however i think most of them are over-valued compared to other lines. Initial money would be better spent in other lines and wait for the Defense Premiums to fall in value and pick them up once the cash cows have fattened up.

Compare Docherty/Simpson/ Shaw/Boyd to Sloane/Gray/Bont/Fyfe for same value. I would initially be going one or even 2 less premium defenders and looking for value in the midfield.

there does seem to be enough defense rookies (there always is) to fill the starting spots and generate some cash.

The forward line seems the opposite this year. the top 10 premiums is not clear cut plus there seems to be alot of value with some players who may end up being top 10 premiums by the end of the year. Such as Gunston, Wingard, Heeney, Ryder, Betts, Rioli, Greene, Bennell, Yeo, Petracca. The trick is who?

I think N Riewoldt & dahlhaus pick themselves, good value and guaranteed top 10 premium keepers.

there also seems to be a lack of obvious Forward rookies.

If your feeling like a bit of Mid-price Madness, i think the forward line is where we can have the best rewards.

The Rucks will be divided into those who have Sandi and those who don't. To me he just represents too much value at $308k (however, i did say that about lobbe last year and TBC the year before – shudder)

the midfield is just filled with quality, you could throw a dart at the top 30 and not be unhappy with who you get. It just comes down to your structure and how many uber premiums do you start your season with? Previous years i've gone with 5, but i'm thinking 6 or even 7 might be better value this year.

There is a little bit of value in the midfield, Beams, Murphy & Swallow stand out to me but they come with an injury concern. I started last year with Rocky & B Crouch and my season was shot by week 4, why didn't i listen to all the wise old heads who were warning against picking injury risk players! this year, i'll be the wise old head and warn everyone else…………and then pick Beams.

My team as it is prior to reading the Jock Reynolds magazine……

DEF: Adams, JJ, McGrath, Scharenberg, Newman, Ryan, (Rookies x2)

MIDS: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Selwood, Fyfe, The Bont, Beams, Power-Pepper (Rookies x3)

RUC: Goldy, Sandi

FWD: N Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Wingard, Heeney, McCluggage, Black (Rookies x2)

$20k left.

Keenbutclueless

I think there might be a few more forward rookies emerge. Riley Knight, Bowes, Turner – maybe even Matt White. So if you are gambling on Wingard because you think there is not enough rookies, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Midfield is gold. But I would suggest you reconsider Beams. If you do trust a rookie to replace Wingard, then Beams becomes another uber premium. Which would be consistent with your philosophy outlined.

Derek

Beams is there for now as insurance

Luskin Star

You have to take the gamble on Beams, he is priced to avg 79. In his last 100 games he has scored more than that 87 times

Derek

Agree, he is the Libba of last year. His price alone almost picks him.

But, I went B Crouch last year instead of Libba, stuffed my start. Could Beams be another Crouch.

The more I think, the less likely to select.

Derek

Taken Beams out and put Docherty in. Extra rookie in Mids.

Wingard out and R Kight in

Moustachio

Points scoring capacity of team just plummeted. Reverse trade.

Danners

I do have my fears over Beams and Swallow as well, but they could easily make around $200k if they were to get injured later on. Hurley is a defence premo with some value. Nice looking team, I suppose rookies will come along in time

Steeeve

I'm thinking the backline is offering more certainty than other lines and so I am taking a different path. Set and forget down back — four premos in my starting team.
Who knows which forwards will end up being top six? Lock in Dahl, take a punt on two or maximum three others, load up on rookies.
I'm taking one more rookie than usual in the guts, as long as good rookie options abound. All the premo midfielders are priced right near their peaks I reckon. Value to be had if you're patient. Just hope you're not too far behind the pack by then.

Derek

I did that last year, loaded up defence thinking there were no rookies. Struggled to get decent scores from them.

Moustachio

I kind of agree re: fwd vs def. Although we don't know who will be top, there is ridiculous value in fwd eg Dahl, Lids, Bennell, Roughy, Wingard, Heeney. In def there are a lot of guys in contention for top and not much value other than Hartlett.

In the end though I will max out on top rookies who are named r1, regardless of position, and the rest will fill itself in.

Morrow

One of the best wisdoms I've heard Derick!

Look for Simpson/Shaw/Docherty all to drop…
My defence so far is an interesting one…. Adams, Williams, Tuohy and Murphy as D1-4… too many risks so far? perhaps. One will surely fall for Simpson as he is just like a fine wine, getting better with age. Ultra consistent.

Jib Jib

I agree with everything you just wrote. However if you load up 6 – 7 premos deep into your midfield aren't you just limiting your access to the best cash generating rookies (typically mid rookies)?

Derek

I think those days are gone since the better rookies are now much higher priced.

Some of the gun rookies in the guts will be $170+ where rookies on other lines will be $120k

Derek

It is always a bit of a trade off between cash and points early on. Last year I got too far behind early.

7 does feel a bit too much, 6 uber premiums would be better.

Morrow

I'm going down to 6 this year mate! You used to lose your best cash generating rookies but I agree those days are more limited now.. Load up on the high scoring promo's and get ahead of the pack with points and pick the right ones in defence/forward.

wombatsfc

Docherty/Simpson/Shaw/Boyd SMASHED Sloane/Gray/Bont/Fyffe by more than 1,000 points in 2016. Maybe that theory of yours would be a good anchor for that little boat

I like your m1-6 and f1,2,4 but I hope that your defense is a joke

Logan

Perhaps the reason that the defence smashed the midfield by 1000 was because Fyfe had played just 5 games? Not a SuperCoach freak but seems logical.

Derek

We only need a starting team for now, obviously I will improve my defence once cows have fattened and the overpriced defence premiums have fallen.

Hopefully early points lost in defence will be picked up elsewhere.

Moustachio

They also have about 1000 years more of age. Risky times to pay full price for Simpson, Shaw and Boyd. Then you have Doc who has exactly one good season under the belt, plenty of others who have failed to follow up similar.

Boltons Blues

Im always the vanilla type of team dude, straight forward, 0 curve balls and dont get sucked into the mid price hype (Sheridan last year etc)

Doc, Laird, JJ, Hibbered, Marchbank – Rookie x3
Danger, Bont, Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, JOM, Swallow – Rookie x 4 (JOM and Swallow pending preseason gametime, if they get minutes they are in my team, dont care about form, i want hours into those legs)
Giles, Sandi – Loophole x1 (cheap and should get some decent points if both are fit, both will be #1 rucks in fit which helps)
Dahl, Macrae, Ryder, Heeney – Rookie x 4

AMAC

nice strategy and should finish around 10,000th.
16 trades without injury assuming 200k growth of each rookie = highly unlikely.
Far too benign to win imo. Nice league winning system though!

By the way I would love to hear your thoughts on Marchbank? what do Carlton expect this year from him?
thanks

Boltons Blues

i finished 3k with the same opening strategy last year, nice opinion though.

you can find all your Marchbank details on http://www.google.com

take it easy 🙂

wombatsfc

I see 11 keepers bolts. I don't understand AMAC's comment on 16 trades (I get 30) and not being top 10,000, at least 3 of your rookies will ave 70 over the first 6 weeks and 2 of them will ave more than 80. Giles Sandi combo is probably a bit weak I hear Kruez has been ripping it up at CHF if it's true he'd be a nice POD

David

For some reason on the program i'm using to generate this team I can't pick Dahl as a fwd….would consider him over Macrae…..and M7/8 open to change if form of JOM D Swallow warrants or move Mccluggage onto the field and use money elsewhere….all very early

David

wow….your right…The Higginator has TBC at 330k I think….not quite such a bargain

Luskin Star

His price is currently 305100.

Luskin Star

I think tne big difference in strategy is as a result of the scoring systems. SC rewards impact not just stats. You could get 50 possesions and i could get just 25 but i might outscore you because i won more contested ball and didnt squander if wheras your posessions were uncontested and mostly you kicked it to the other team.Study the scoring and you will soon catch on to the type of player you want.

Derek

Rioli has only ever had more than 20 touches twice. Both times he had 21 disposals he scored 145sc.

Nice start Jambo, tooth length maybe the problem. Simpson (probably out do himself again), Montagna, Sandilands could pay off though. Maybe better options than Fiorini though like Swallow maybe Jaeger bomb. Otherwise nice start

Jambo

Jaeger bomb is more likely to blow up in our faces. I hope to be proven wrong though.

Derek

I'll be keeping close eye on Knight

Rick Grimes

Goldy, Martin….rookie
Dalhaus, Lynch, Heeney………rookies

I'm trying to avoid the mid price madness. So much value but I was ravaged by injuries last season. I;m sure that will chance again by lunch time.
