The Real McSteady. Initial line up.

Def : Adams Gleeson
Mid : Heppell Zerrett Sidebum Greenwood
Ruck : Luey (oh shit only option?)

Never been much chop at CK but it's fun.

      OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 18:34

      What is wrong with Grundy? I think he is playing.
      I put him in my team anyway.
      Luenhamandflopanegganburger might surprise.

        OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 18:49

        SCRATCH THAT HE IS NOT PLAYING. Just me full of hope.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/02/2017 at 18:48

    Think luey might b popular
    Only ruck option

      hedski · 16/02/2017 at 19:03

      If there were dearer options in other lines this might be one of those times where you pick the cheapest, munch a donut, and strengthen another line.
      Luckily tonight everyone is pretty cheap.
      I'd nearly prefer a donut to Luey!!

    slug · 16/02/2017 at 21:02

    get yourself a chromecast cobba

      Hart_attack · 16/02/2017 at 21:59

      How does one apply the afl live app to chromecast??

OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 18:17

I just joined again, I joined as a new member, How exciting is this some real pretend footy going on tonight.
I should have come here first for picking my team but I managed to select a reasonable looking team that will probably only play half a game.
Patch tells me I can make 1 trade at half time, and I can also give someone a rev up for double points.
Bloody hell I feel sorry for the rest of you blokes & Ladies now that I have joined it seems so easy. Ha Ha
I will have to study the points scoring system to get the hang of this and maybe even join Facebook. (Dread the thought)

Please don't laugh at my finishing position on my FIRST TRY knowing nothing about it, I have given her a Crack, and I am not talking about Dawn either.
Does anyone know how I can watch this magnificent spectacle at home on the computer? I saw an ad somewhere offering 2 weeks free trial for the JLT Games but can't find the link again.

Good Luck to all in a game that is sure to be dominated by people being rested and only playing half a game.

    hedski · 16/02/2017 at 18:27

    Not sure about the PC ocker but the afl live app on phone/tablet should be a goer, free if ur a Telstra customer.

      OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 18:31

      Not with Telstra, they are sh*t and I have a Windows mobile with prepaid.
      Cheers mate thanks for the reply. I did see an ad and thought I bookmarked it but it's not in my Footy 2017 folder. (2 weeks free trial)

        hedski · 16/02/2017 at 19:44

        Ocker I swore off Telstra for 10 years and was on vodaphone, they're shizeen coverage down the bool tho.

          OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 20:52

          I am with Amaysim who is with the Optus network. Have been happy with them and good internet speed. Signal is good.

            hedski · 16/02/2017 at 20:56

            I'm a bit of a Luddite Ocker and don't have WiFi, just use my phone.

              OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 22:14

              Unlimited calls and text, added overseas calls for hours and 7GB of data I never use. Nobody ever rings me either but it is a security blanket for me.
              Phone is a phone, I cant see the bloody screen for internet.

                AuroraBorealis?! · 16/02/2017 at 23:25

                I also use amaysim, would highly recommend

      John · 16/02/2017 at 19:22

      Hedski does it charge you for data or does it allow you to connect to wifi?

        hedski · 16/02/2017 at 19:42

        Wi fi is sweet john, doesn't use bugger all data either, actually when I was out of credit last year pretty sure i could still watch. I have it on now, cost me zilch and im on Telstra prepaid, just press the green button, might have to make an account but takes a minute and is free.

        hedski · 16/02/2017 at 20:40

        How'd ya go with that John?
        More importantly did u change ur name to sc beast?

    Captain pugwah · 16/02/2017 at 22:14

    Spent half time at the bar and missed the rev up. Picked a cheap team and fluked twelth. Fun game. Pugwash.

AuroraBorealis?! · 16/02/2017 at 22:18

Yeah, so choosing to rev up Jamie Elliot wasn't the wisest decision

TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/02/2017 at 22:26

Tried coach kings for the first time not half bad.
Interesting concept.
Pulled the wrong lever and selected the wrong pie fwd to start.
Bit of fun
Would play again..

    OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 22:43

    My first time too mate but i really enjoyed it. What has held me back is being a venue focused game.
    I just can't afford to go to the pub if there was a venue near me. I will one day understand the scoring system but it is so different to SC and that is where I prefer to spend my time.
    More online I think will come this year and this is a fantastic way to get her rolling for the lads.
    Great stuff getting "Fantasy Insider" to be aboard and offer FREE Prize Money in the JLT Series.

    2017 is going to be a great year of growth for you.


Jake · 16/02/2017 at 22:27

Jock did Varcoe get robbed of a goal in the scoring?

    OldOcker · 16/02/2017 at 22:44

    No the Umpires are always right.

    jockreynolds · 16/02/2017 at 23:03

    I'll have to get the blokes behind the keyboards to check in the morning mate!

      Jake · 17/02/2017 at 07:33

      He kicked a goal and a super goal and only had 16 points under goals.

neil.DemonsDelight · 17/02/2017 at 09:20

Great fun first try at coach kings Badly need my mag Listening A post.Will only get better both me and coachkings thanks Jock. My team is perfect for the byes but not happy to run with it.Is it more important to get the byes right.I have Priddis and Gray but would prefer Pendles and Jelwood but completely mucks byes up Delema Cheers Neil

    Hawks · 17/02/2017 at 21:41

    Think it's important to consider the byes when selecting your team, but you must also consider that you will likely have done at least 8 trades before the byes begin.

    There is a chance to become bye ready closer to the bye rounds if your only a couple of players short on any given week.
