i don't know how i feel about this


Surely Crouching should add another Midfield Premium.

Take out Strnadica and put Parfitt onto the Forward Bench.


I'm all for keeping some cash free for early injuries/correction trades, but having over $600K in reserve is way too much. You'll miss out on points from premiums you could have had from day dot and then be too far behind in total points to catch up. Happy to be proven wrong though.


Not if your midpricers are scoring premo points. Cash is irrelevant in that case.

If his midpricers fail he can go bang and fix them with minimal trades.


If overall rank is the aim, all that needs to happen is his midpricers spud up for one week and you basically have no chance of making up those lost points because you'll be trading into premium players which most people already have. So you'll end up with the same players (Dangerfield is the most obvious one that he doesn't have currently) but you're now behind the game because, for example, Horlin-Smith scores 50-odd in Round 1 and Danger pumps out a 120+. You're then 70 points behind everyone with Danger and now need to burn a trade to get him in.


That's the thing I guess, we don't really know whether he is playing for overall or for league wins.


He's 100% playing for rank aha


Yes, Crouching One always plays for rank. Mrs Crouching "promise love make" if he cracks the top 100.


And if Horlin-Smith scores 75+ and Danger gets 80-90 playing up forward?

Sure he's taking risks but it's not as terrible as people are making it out to be.

Personally I'd get Danger in for Neale or Selwood.


Not enough keepers for mine, plus relying on guys like Swallow, Sandi, Beams, Fyfe and Thurlow to stay fit long enough means that I fear this team runs out of trades early, and without full premo team.


I don't know what to say…

Very bold!


Can you give me some feedback on team

DEF: Doc Shaw Tuohy Marchbank Hmapton Otten ( Stewart EVW)
MID: Danger, Ablett, Trealor, Fyfe, Kelly Beams, JOM, Swallow ( pep brodie barret)
RUC: NANK, Sandi ( preuss)
FWD: Roo, Dal Higgins, Roughead, Steele, Tarranto, Butler ( eddy, Butler)




Big Daz

Swallow is a risk and need real cover when Sandi has a rest.


starting to see a trend with these team reveals, they seem a bit ummmmmmm, bogus, $600 od in the pot still?? happy chasing,,,, too many cans of rum for you crouching, Tiger win flag? your dilusional, maybe, you and slipper need get out a bit,Welcome

Bells E Bubb

Yes it’s great. They are more points of discussion than real teams to cut and paste. Well done Jock et al.

Ranked Top 200,000

Pulled back your skin a bit too far on your own flute Bro… Stop being so dayummmm #SALTY playa xx


Whats that? ranked


I'm speechless. The cash remaining. Neale at M1. Crouching One must have plums the size of watermelons.

Yeah, wow.



Competitive league with a few spots left. Jump on to reach the top with us.


Joined thanks.
last year finished within top 1000, hopefully 500 this year.




Too many rum can


Wow, balls to the wall start Crouching. No Danger, no Gawn! This is either genius or lunacy. Many Pinky Snapper & Rum cans if this proves to be a master stroke.


Many can rum also if it proves to be a stinker


I love it very ballsy team it gives me food for thought welcome

General Soreness


There is a lesson here.

Don't do Drugs!


Too late for Crouching me thinks


The gym probably needs a visit from ASADA


i was thinking the same thing hahahahaha


The true answer is to always do the drugs


If yas go alright, join my league 466803


Can someone post the team in text? Can't view video at work.


You should thank work for banning videos


Is the team that bad?


Hmmm it's unique! Not many captain options let's just say


If an actual Rum can was on the team that would be his Captain


You can zoom in on a phone while it's playing


Losing 120 points weekly with that cash on bench
And a chance to use that on a caption so effectively losing 250 points weekly
That will put you out to 80/90k overall and that's if the rest of your team does wonders from round 1
Not to happy with this crouching


Seriously? I'd rather the admins not even post their teams if they're going to "reveal" their bogus SuperCoach teams.
There is no way Crouching goes into R1 2&5$ a team even remotely similar to this and $600k in the bank is ludicrous. Almost insulting trying to sell this to the community, my opinion anyway… too many pages creating bogus SuperCoach teams just for a few views

Nat Is Stoopid

Let's see your team then ya Salty little minx…


I've started with 1 million in the bank and finished top 10% so dunno what people are on about.


Relax Nat,

Nobody is coming here to find the covenant of the arc.

If you find it "insulting or bogus" then move on my friend.

Good luck, Juz.


5 spots left community get amongst it if you're a serious supercoacher. 319318


Oh and could someone please find Crouching's plot!!!


Interesting Crouching! I am in a very different boat. Only $400 remaining! Packing my dacks that rookies will be announced and I won't have the money I need to fill out the rookie spots. Also wish I had an extra $20,000 to put Cameron/Pruess on my ruck bench. Any suggestions community?

BACKS: Rance, Adams, Laird, Hampton, EVW, Stewart (Otten, Z Guthrie)

MIDS: Danger, Fyfe, Treloar, Bont, Titch, Beams, Jaeger, Swallow (SPP, Barrett, Hibberd)

RUCKS: Goldy, Sandi (Strnadica)

FORWARDS: Dahl, Macrae, Roughy, Nankervis, Taranto, Eddy (Pickett, Houston)

Ty Webb

Florent instead of Taranto


Downgrade Swallow to a rookie and all problems solved


I agree to an extent. I'd have trouble choosing between Swallow/Jaeger. And also will there be a viable rookie? Parfitt?

I might also consider dropping Range for a Marching type… that would help my bye structure…

Big Daz

Farewell Swallow.


Thoughts on my team so far? Quite happy with it at the moment. Rucks a concern, but feel the reward is worth the risk if it pulls through. Rookies on bench subject to change pending lists.
$1,900 left in the bank

Hampton, Vicker-willis, stewart (Otten/smith)

Danger, Hannebery, Priddis,
Ward, Fyfe, Watson, Beams, Powell-pepper (Barrett, Hibbered, Parffit)

Nankervis, Sandilands (Strnadica)

Reiwoldt, Dahlhaus, Greene,
Steele, Taranto, Eddy, (Pickett Miles)


For 1053k which 2 forwards would you get?
I already have Roughy and Dahl.


wont get anyone for that coin


Upvoting your own comment huh? lol


Macrae, Greene


Lynch and frank

Jager Bombs

Serious Supercoachers 803130 join. CHeers


No Comment!!!! I'm still in shock.

Walk on crouching

Just lost all credibility Crouching one…this is garbage mate.


Not really. Replace neale with danger and it's far from garbage.

Danger and Fyfe as captain options. A little bit of cash to 'fix' any errors and he'll do quite well.


Hey community, if i can get some thoughts on my team that would be great

DEF: Doch, Adams, Tuohy, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (VW,Stuart)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Selwood, Bont, Fyfe, M.Crouch, Beams, SPP (Miles, Parfitt, Bayok(random west coast player))
RUCK: Gawn,Sandi (strndica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughy, Taranto, Pickett, Butler (eddy, Cameron)

thoughts on this real quick
– sell tuohy to a def rookie
– use money to upgrade fwd rook to jack steele
– left over cash to upgrade bench

or should i leave it how it is

Cheers Community


My guess is Cameron (syd) won't be named and unlikely to play more than 2-3 games all year. Is the 4th ruck in line at the swans.
Like your thoughts at the end re Steele. I can see him Ave 95 this year


Keep touhy
You win the 50grand


Hey guys wold appreciate any feedback

DEF: Shaw, Laird, Howe, Lloyd, Hampton, Otten (EVW, Stewart)
MID: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, JOM, SPP, Barrett (Pickett, Miles, Hibberd)
RUCK: Goldstein, Sandilands (Strndica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch, Nankervis, Taranto, Eddy (Turner, Parfitt)


Big Daz

Howe not an option. Need to improve your MIdfield. You have too much $$$ tied up in your fwd line.


Why is Howe not an option???


Would probably get rid of one premo in the defensive line and try and get another midfield premo. Just because you need barrett to be on the bench if you suffer an injury so you can sub him on rather than scrambling around for another consistent rookie. I would be confident in picking Howe, but only if it works with this changed structure. If you are still strapped for cash I would try downgrading lynch to maybe WHE or Mccarthy and look to upgrade him after the bye. ATM you are probably one premo too heavy in the forward/backline, or 2 midpricers. If you removed Lloyd and the Nank then you could easily get another uber-premium in the mids who will carry you early.

In saying that this is your structure so do what you want, however I personally reckon you are a bit light on in the guts.


Thoughts on my team
B- Simpson, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, EVW (Otten, Stewart)

C- Danger, JPK, Hanners, Tealoar, Fyfe, Beams, Taranto, SPP (Barrett, Hibbered, Parfitt)

R- Goldstein, Sandi (Strnadica)

F- Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Nankervis, Picket, Miles ( Houston, Eddy)
50k in bank


Upgrade danger to gaz jr. and upgrade beams to zaharakis


^^^^^ don't do that. Gaz is injured half the season, Danger is a gun who you will be missing out on 20 points per round if you don't have him, 40 because he is a valid captaincy option. Zaharakis has no where near the capability of Beams' max, and you will be stuck with an awkard midpricer averaging 75 if you pick him. If anything I think that you are a bit light on in your forward line, with two risky on field rookies. Miles' job security does not look certain at all, so I would try and find a substitute. If you can free up 50k more (maybe downgrade marchbank because there are many good back rookies), and upgrade him to Will Hoskin Elliot. I would also upgrade switch Taranto into your forward line and put barrett onfield in the mids. He will be more consistent that Pickett I think, mainly because Pickett will be playing as small forward and may not get much of the footy some weeks.

Rick Grimes

Bahaha brilliant. Not sure about the team but it's certainly bold.

Tim Smith

thats such a bad team wow


Steele or namkervis? I have sandy so nank is good cover but steelers scores in the jlt were crazy good with them those two huge scores over 110 and one game of 50 from 36% game time. And the other saints mids all had around same game time as him in his big score games so I doubt he will be affected by them to much.
Though s?


You have to look at the compotition he was against? noone really, dont get sucked in mate,


I've got the same problem and decided to go with Steele. I've gone with Preuss as ruck cover for Sandi. If needed I will use a trade and cash to upgrade Sandi if injured. Looking at North in the JLT I'd take Pruess over Daw's any day of the week.


Sorry wrong thread I've posted in.

I do like your rucks and I've gone for the same set up. I'd leave Nankervis our and go with Steele.I think Nank is a trap and will be lucky to average 90. St Kilda go Steele for a reason and he was a ball magnet in the NEAFL


Steele is new to the team and his place wasn't guaranteed, he was playing for his spot while everyone else was getting some run into the legs. I don't reckon he's going to be nearly as good as everyone thinks this year


What do you guys recon

DEF:Simpson,Adams,Laird,Thurlow,Hampton,VW (Otten,Stewart)

MID:Danger,JPK,Treloar,Fyfe,Kelly(GWS),Beams,JOM,SPP (Barrett,Hibberd,Parfitt

RUCK:Hickey,Sandi (Preuss)

66k in the bank
Any improvements?????


Swap riewoldt for a cheaper option and then get witts


I've got the same problem and decided to go with Steele. I've gone with Preuss as ruck cover for Sandi. If needed I will use a trade and cash to upgrade Sandi if injured. Looking at North in the JLT I'd take Pruess over Daw's any day of the week.


preuss isn't looking like playing. Word from North Melbourne.


i love how everyone's complaining about this team.
why don't we all just create the same team, do the same trades and divide the 50k up amongst 300,000 players.

16c each! woo hoo!!


Agree! It's great seeing others go with different players. It's the $600k im baffled about


He obviously has reasons for all his picks. Fair enough.


I'm all for this team. One less person to compete against.

the nank

Should I start with
Danger, JPK, Jelwood, Trealor, Fyfe, Beams, JOM and SPP

Danger, JPK, Trealor, Fyfe, Beams, JOM, Swallow and SPP and 327k for upgrade for NANKILANDS


$327k too much to leave in kitty


Normally yes but this year ruck uncertainty means if you go thin then having 200-300k is probably sensible


A or B are both valid. 3 in my opinion is too many midpricers, bit if you have 300k in the kitty then you can easily upgrade. The only issue with that is that you may be starting too far behind. Back yourself and your Premo's to carry the team early. I would go with A


Does anyone know if Bont has had a full pre season, is he a valid starting premo for the M3 spot or are people thinking of picking him up during the year??


He didn't. Ankle issues. Looked fine in final JLT hitout though. Was always going to be an upgrade target for me


Bold team, but he'll do better than most of the cookie cutter crap around.


Last years winning team was Cookie Cutter except for 1 player which was Mitch Robinson. He realised his error & traded him to buddy in Round 2. Most winning teams start cookie cutter. It's how you use your 30 trades that makes the difference


This year there's not enough rookies though. Last year was easier. ie lock in a bunch of bombers rookies.

Whoever gets their combination of mid price and rookies right will win this year.


Fair argument Burnmen but the collective so called cookie cutter team does have a few mid pricers this year – and those players end up in the base team for a reason. My take is that the cash in bank theory can only really work in a year when the rookie pool is strong. By saving 600K and having say, two less full premos on field, you would have the opportunity to have two extra rookies. Those rookies then make extra cash and you can use this cash to boost your team quickly post round 7 and catch up with the other teams. This year most of us can't come up with 16 good earners as it is so may as well get your cash and put 13/14 premos on the field. Crouchings team has some great picks but 9 premos isn't enough.

Johnny Boogaloo

Looking for a league … who's got spots going?


150273 for those who have done their preseason homework


374740 has spots Johnny


Good day community,
Don't really rate myself as a super coach expert, however this year I feel this is a strong outfit heading into round one. If you have a thought on it share it with me.. cheers.

DEF: Shaw, Johannisen, J.Lloyd, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (T. Stewart, Z.Guthrie)
MID: Danger, JPK, Bont, Fyfe, Beams, JOM, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, M. Hibberd, Wigg)
RUC: Martin, Sandi (Witts)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Lynch, Greene, Nank, Taranto, McCarthy (Pickett, Eddy)

*$136,600 left.


Dac Zawson

You may have personal reasons for picking specific players, but with all that cash in the bank plus having Nankervis as ruck cover I think you could make some small upgrades.

My thinking is that you could go JJ up to a Simpson/Docherty or even Laird as they are much more likely to be Top 8 Defenders at the end of the year.
Also, I imagine Stef is in your team as you believe he will play as a lone wolf ruckman all year (if so he will be a great pick), however going up to a Grundy/Goldstein may be a safer choice.
Lastly, while I believe McCarthy should play the full year, his scoring potential is low for a 'rookie' of his price so downgrading him to a Butler type player who will be named round 1, may free up some more cash to be used elsewhere.
Best of luck mate


Cheers mate, JJ -> Simpson




Wow The Bold and The Beautiful!


Great vid Crouching.

Never thought I'd say this about a preseason team but you could swap Parfitt for … I dunno …DANGERFIELD.

Lots of negative comments about your team but if people have another look and imagine you made that trade they would find that this structure (along with many of the players) is not that dissimilar to their own.

All the "Crouching's on drugs comments" may turn into "Strong side with some great PODs" ๐Ÿ™‚


Spot on


But he doesn't have Dangerfield instead of Parfitt! That's the point.

It he did, he wouldn't have $600k+ in the bank and he wouldn't be 50-80 points behind every other team.


Still a couple of sleeps to go.


Hi everyone,

What do you think of my team?

DEF: Shaw, T. Adams, Tuohy, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten || Hibberd, Steward

MID: Danger, Pendles, Kennedy, Selwood, Fyfe, Beams, Powell-Power, Barret || Parfitt, Atley, Bolton

RUCK: Gawn, Sandi || Strnadica

FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Greene, Steele, Taranto, Eddy || Pickett, Houston


Like meatloaf through a straw so are the days of our lives. WELCOME.

Wow. That team certainly is UNIQUE! Lone wolf.
Not sure about having that much money in the bank?
Do you mind if I come to you for a loan? Looking at using the majority of the green.
Not sure how this team would go with capt options?
Guess you will work that out as you go along.

But you live and you die by the samari sword.

Good luck. You may need it


I havent seen one team with Rockliff in it..
If he stays on the park he'll be a top 2 pick.
Didnt light it up in jlt, but considering his overall tog he was pretty good. Take out the two injury affected games and he averaged around 120 last year. Just saying


Talk of him playing a more forward role this year too, may impact his scoring….


I dont believe the hype of him playing forward, but will be watching the team lists when they roll out. If anything, he is fitter and more determined considering what happenned last season:

"Rockliff has stripped kilograms from his frame over the pre-season, and Beams says the work ethic has not gone unnoticed."

We all know what a determined/motivated rockliff can do (double ton).

In other news, does anyone want to buy some rockliff t-shirts?


Like you've said "If" he stays on the park. Mid season upgrade if he can get through


I have him Jess.

Stats , TOG, midfield rotations, time in fwd half etc, etc …. aside.

I have him because they tried to trade him, nobody wanted him, they stripped him of the captaincy and he is internally seething.

Think he might get a bit Russel Crowe in Gladiator this year to prove a point.


I'm still considering him for my starting lineup, he's spent a lot of time in my teams over the past 3-4 years. He's in the mix with Treloar, Hanners, Selwood and Co. Still not sure which Premos to go with though.


Petrevski Steven, carltons top pick may debut, and butler is a definite


It's too much cash in the kitty but I think this year having a chunk left over could be very advantageous, especially If your running a few midpricers. With the Gold Coast/Port bye at Rd9 there can be some quick and painless upgrades. I have Thurlow and thought he could be an easy stepping stone to Pittard to cover the byes… Could also jump onto Robbie Gray, Tom Lynch, Gary Ablett quite easily too…. Still, $627k is prob a bit much…

Also, no Danger is obviously a massive risk but not sure why Neale is being mentioned as such a bad pick. Finished 6th mid last year ahead of Parker, Selwood, Priddis, Treloar etc so maybe not THAT bad a selection… Not in my team but just saying…


Agree with you on, Neale. Has Sandi tapping it down to him this year. Had 37 touches v Fyfe's 38 in JLT4, so they can work together it seems.

Alas, interrupted preseason. I'll see how he goes


Lachie could be a very good pick Kev. Had him couple years ago came home hard, pi$$ed I didn't pick him last year.
Don't have him tho.


Difficult to start with him with the R13 bye set up….

Gold Rush

League 112344
So far it's me along with the so called experts (exception being the Great Jock Reynolds and the Phantom), so if you reckon that you can rip Robbo and Co a new one – jump on board.

We have both been five years


My team is not auto filled. Did OK last year. Would like to join


Greene or T J Lynch




Both keepers.. Greene now, Lynch upgrade target after China

simpson . come season end he will have avg'd much the same as doch


Nank or Grundy
Spend Nank money else where


I know you want your fishing boat for pinky snapper Crouching, but having money in your Supercoach bank won't buy it. An alright start though
