Michael Hurley Supercoach 2018

WE SHOULD HAVE SEEN MICHAEL HURLEY COMING.

A preseason beard as thick and lustrous as we had ever seen should have caught our Supercoach attention.
He backed out a sizeable 133 Supercoach gold nugget last night and continues his season of significance.
Plenty to discuss.. captaincy options.. dilemmas of the ongoing round.. tomorrow’s Blues v Digs Academy contest (get in now using the links below, Higgo’s take on the contest here).. let’s crack into it in the comments below.

TOPHAWK1

HURLEY! You little RIPPA! Grabbed him in a moment of impulse and undisciplined madness. Bloody glad I did!!

ThugsandDruggos

Yes, he stalked the ball as if it were a taxi driver and then kicked the crap out of it

TheGreatBozza

Great selection tophawk!

Combotron

Treloar 4 zorko? Have 8 trades left. Lost patience with hanners and treloar. Hanners to selwood next week.

TheGreatBozza

Bit sideways peronsally, where are you ranked? If near the top then go for it to

Combotron

Just playing cash league this year but frustrated by treloar and he will only drop more cash this week. My opponent has zorko and not treloar as well.

Tyruddanaut

Don't fall for Zorko. He may not provide as much as you'd hope

TOPHAWK1

I am giving both Hanners and Treloar one more game to show something. If both go big great, if one goes big and one spuds, then its goodbye spud and hello Jelwood next week. Straight switch. If both spud be very angry, (I will be) pick the worst of the two spuds and replace with Jellwood next week. Use the other spud as a loophole slave in the meantime until the spud improves or hatch a plan to dump him later. Hope it helps!

Cogla13

Richmond said they will put some time into Zorko so expect a tag or run with role.

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Keep Jack Stevens 96 or roll the dice on Hannebery?

TheGreatBozza

That's a tough one. I'd say if your playing leagues, suss out your opponent and who he has. If playing for rank then roll the dice, not going to move up with 90's

Combotron

Gotta back hannebury in…but jeez he has been rubbish this year

Tyruddanaut

96 is still a very valid score. I'd take it

TheGreatBozza

I've narrowed down my FWD upgrade to three:

Buddy, Yeo or Paddy?

Combotron

Yeo. I dont have him. Yet.

TheGreatBozza

I went Yeo, he's been surprisingly more consistent than Buddy.

Tyruddanaut

Wellllllllllllllll…………………… I had a choice. A choice of giant proportions that would decide which road I took. Both the roads seemed fair, but the advertisement of one chose where I would lead. Left was Jelwood and right was Hurley. I hope I chose the right path but after last nights game I'm not so sure

TOPHAWK1

Well, that just proves my position down to a tee without me even realising it. I am no leftie do gooder, which now explains why I went Hurley last night! The pick to the right. Don't stress though mate, Jelwood will not disappoint. If Treloar or Hanners (My two premo liabilities) screw up this round, Jelwood will be the replacement. One straight switch.No questions asked. Cheers

Pieman

Take Josh Battles score or roll the dice on Greenwood?

davo

Take the 8

TOPHAWK1

Stellar effort that by Battle. A goal and 8 SC. I'd take that. Greenwood is just rubbish………………………………………………………………..

Now you know I am just being snide right? Hehehehe…………..

Pieman

I want to remind the community that I am the only recognised supercoach writer that identified Ben Long as rookie star. No other writer on any website identified him as a genuine star except me. If you want original highly valuable information on supercoach look me up.

Choice

Must win needed, trade in Ryder or Yeo for Hannan.
Play Greenwood over Nank or Franklin (Plays sh*t against GWS)?
or
Hannebery for Jelwood, Newman for Laird (not sure how he'll go against tough opposition)

Choice

Would Greenwood be ok for F6 today?

Ben

Who wins fellas
Jelwood, trealor, rance, lynch.
Vs
Kelly, Neale, Newman, greenwood.

TOPHAWK1

I reckon Jelwood, Treloar, Ranch, and Tom J Lynch. Hope that is what you wanted to hear. Cheers

Ben

It is mate 🙂

undypuncher

Who should i start ryan from frwo or johanison

TheGreatBozza

JJ

Derek

JJ. Biggs and Bob back for dogs will be a different defence structure. JJ should get some room to move

TheBenchmark25

How many trades has everyone got left?
I've got 5 left and will save them for as long as I don't have injuries. So lately I haven't done any research and there's not much I can do but watch on
8 trades from here would have been perfect

TheGreatBozza

Nank, Lynch, Greenwood

Who should I drop to F7?

hedski

Loop Lynch if you can.

hedski

Go the digs…

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Hope they don't fall into a hole 🙂

Vvv

Should bury them

Derek

What time are the games on tonight? Crazy time zones!

Stirlsy

What's Melbournes weather like?

Jim_bob321

Sunny, little bit cloudy, not too windy, cold
Perfect weather

TRIGGA_HAPPY

After billings Stirling effort last night I have to field either witherden or Ryan.
Good thing I had the E on billings just had a feeling.
so thinking witherden. .
whaddya reckon?
Other option is shaz but reckon witherden will score more.
can't loop as only loop is cousins who plays early.
Was gonna loop with billings but saint spuds last night.

Derek

Darcy or Greenwood?

I have Darcy at R2 and Greenwood F7. Was going to loop Greenwood with Nank who plays Sunday. But not sure how Darcy will go this week, should do ok against WCE, just worried he is getting tired.

Only have damm Cameron as my R3 so have to decide now. Can swing Ryder to R2.

I can't see much difference between Darcy and Greenwood, so I'd prefer to have the loophole option

INPieman

With Lycett out I think Darcy will get a lot of tap outs

Derek

R2 is my last upgrade. Darcy and Parsons to Gawn and rookie. Still need a bit of cash out of both of them.

And no FA with 60seconds to go please. Darcy lost 12 pts last week, it would have been more if Goldy kicked the winning goal.

Stirlsy

Rain in Perth today but forecast is better tomoz Derek no rain forecast Sunday mainly cloudy 17

Derek

Thanks. Will give Darcy a run.

hedski

Mackie and Scoota out for cats (damn), Z.Guthrie and Simpson in.
Pain in the arse for those who've held Scoota.

INPieman

Scooter is a late out

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Must all have footy alerts eh?
Saved me in more than one occasion

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Scooter a late out 4 cats.

Tyruddanaut

Glad I pulled the trigger this week

Borko

adams v simpson for final DEF upgrade … simpson 35k more but scored 85 in 2nd half last week without cripps!

Derek

I'm guessing that Dangerfield could be the most VC'd player ever today.

Is there anyone who won't VC danger?

ahmad rubas

he did score under 100 last time against hawthorn

Stirlsy

Was flying till Roughy got him in ribs… everyone going Doc with the C has a very poor avg v the Doggies BEWARE.

Defying_Madness

Noticed that also, Kreuzer will be my captain over Doch if Danger fails.

Derek

The Hawks will be up for this game, they always are against the cats, but same can be said for the cats.

Tophawk1

My 8 year old son Jack. He VC'd zerrett. Greedy little bugger reckons 120 is crap. He has the C on Damger. LOL VC on Danger and going into the Doc as C for me.

Tyruddanaut

120 is terrible. I wouldn't take the VC if it was under 170

Keenbutclueless

Are you going Danger as VC Derek, or going a Higgo contrarian move with Pendles?

Derek

Went Pendles

Jose

should've checked the forecast dezza

Russty_

I was gonna go Danger into Doch Derek, but just before the game whacked the C on Danger..no worries about any loopholey crap happening now 🙂

hedski

Might take Dangers 141

Bells

So glad I brought in Scooter – he's been dynamite for me.
Is that 4 weeks out, three onfield now all up now?
Ironically by not playing (and probably dropping ten grand if he did) I might be able to offload him for his brother.
Probably have to swing Greenwood into the mids now in-case Ablett misses again (another great selection).

Stirlsy

Scooter was always a risk with his injury history, it screamed stay away but heaps got sucked into him.

Tyruddanaut

I'm sort of praying Jelwood goes large so many people can't get him and I'll get an advantage because I got him at his cheapest

BrownlowBoy

I did mention Hurley last week! Glad he didn't let me down.

Jim

I need help quick! Parsons to Gawn to allow me to loophole Greenwood with Lynch/Nank, or just wait another week?! Was planning on waiting a week but now I'm torn.

ahmad rubas

how many trades you have left?

Jim

4, it's risky but the way I see it I'm going to need to upgrade my final ruck spot eventually

ahmad rubas

id go for it

Jim

I just missed lockout, if Gawn goes massive and Lynch spuds it up I'm going to regret not asking about this earlier. Thanks for the advice though buddy!

ahmad rubas

no worries happy to try and help 🙂

Jim_bob321

Dangerfield injured…. omg

INPieman

Danger!!! Noooooo

Tyruddanaut

DANGERFIELD DOWN MAYDAY MAYDAY

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Yikes.
Danger carried off with a leg injury

Jim_bob321

Now time to think of captain options..
Zorko… Docherty… Bont.?

BlueNath

The Zork

Jim_bob321

HE'S FINE HE'S FINE YESSS

Tyruddanaut

Thank the supercoach gods he's back

TOPHAWK1

Why does DANGER always get bloody injured against Hawthorn!!!! Its incredible. Happens year in and year out. Does my friggin head in!

TOPHAWK1

Maybe that fit of rage has steeled him. Looks like he is back on. Hope it stays that way………

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Can't keep a good man down.

Ja191

HE'S BACK FROM THE DEAD!!!

GloryDays90

Sigh of relief. Danger is back!

INPieman

Not yet. He's struggling

BlueNath

No way Dangers goes large today… limping bad

Box

Oh yes he does………………….

AuroraBorealis?!

Looks like my strategy of "lock danger as C every week" has backfired

INPieman

VC or C?

AuroraBorealis?!

C, i VC'd Zerrett

INPieman

Out of Jail AB

AuroraBorealis?!

*wipes sweat from brow*

GloryDays90

Nope… he just went down into the rooms again

hedski

Bugger.

hedski

He'll score 170 now

BlueNath

I predict 100 for Danger only today. What are your predictions?

Finnius123

15

Finnius123

Spoke too soon – he is now the highest for the cats!

hedski

150

Russty_

More than 100 lol

Joshua

Lucky I vced Danger, spewing I waited a week on Titchell, he is gonna be expensive big time

manolaki

I did the same. Was going to take him this week but thought the cats would hold him to a low score.

GloryDays90

Now i know how Jelwood owners who put the C on him a few weeks back felt :(. Should have VC Danger….

Juzzy

Didn't Roughy get Danger last time out too ??

He seems to be the only player in the comp who can stop the great man.

Stirlsy

Yes it was

Juzzy

Might have gone too soon. The guy is a freak.

He might still get 120 with one leg …

Jim_bob321

Danger still tearing it up

Russty_

Danger 68…what was everyone worried about? lol

INPieman

Not bad for a bloke on one leg playing in the goal square

Russty_

How'd he get hurt Pieman? I'm not able to see the game yet.

TOPHAWK1

Its a bloody miracle. If Cam Guthrie didnt get mothballed because of a headknock, Danger probably would have sat out the second half. Will probably play the game out in the goal square. Concerned about Danger missing a few weeks mind you.

leedy

Dear Community – Robbie Gray FFS, is it OK to think about killing someone provided you don't act on it? There is still a grassy knoll at Adelaide oval, I may be the shadowy figure on it.

hedski

Parsons 5 is outscoring him Leedy!!

leedy

lol … Thanks for the heads up 🙂

Juzzy

Maybe holster it for a moment.

Has just kicked 2 absolute rippers.

leedy

Redemption? I live in hope.

Juzzy

Reload Mate.

Russty_

Go for it Leedy Harvey Oswald 🙂

leedy

Clever Russty 🙂

Smote

I prefer the view of the useless flog from the upstairs bookshop myself.

Defying_Madness

Guess the Hawks are destined to lose today. Umpiring has been as bad as I have ever seen it. Most of Geelong's goals have been gifted. Expect some free kicks for Hawthorns defenders in the second half to balance out the free kick count.

Tommo09

TOM MITCHELL!! GUN!!

Tommo09

PATRICK DANGERFIELD!!! GUN!!!

Russty_

Danger…GUNS of NAVARONE… BIGGEST GUN OF ALL! 🙂

Defying_Madness

Razor Ray vs the Hawks. Who will win?

GloryDays90

Tell hawthorn to stop giving away stupid freekicks…

Derek

It was horrendous

TOPHAWK1

Danger's new position- Full Forward. Kicking goals at will. What a freak.

Tyruddanaut

3.4. Not great aim

TOPHAWK1

5.4 now.

Defying_Madness

Anyone can kick goals when they have Razor Ray barreling them down their throat

Rocksta

Titch you fkn magnificent beast!!!!!

GloryDays90

Think you mean Dangerfield

Don't Blush Baby

Jelwood not scoring well, 6 clangers don't help

Tyruddanaut

Dangerfield: Takes two steps
Commentators: WE HAVE A LEGEND RIGHT HERE HE NEEDS THE BROWNLOW VOTES SO GOOD CONGRATULATIONS WOW

GloryDays90

ALL SHALL BOW DOWN TO DANGERGOD!!!

BrownlowBoy

Dangerfield, have my children. You can also take me home again this year.

TOPHAWK1

Danger has left Titch in the rear vision mirror and almost out of sight…..who would have thought….

Rick Grimes

It's very nice to bank that Danger VC but everyone has him. The boys will be seperated from the men the day he fails. Could be waiting a while, mind.

Derek

Decided not to put VC on danger. Was feeling good at quarter time. The lad is good

Tyruddanaut

They absolutely are. From a non-bias perspective, (Carlton supporter), he's giving away everything at every opportunity

Defying_Madness

It's pretty obvious, most of the Cats goals have been off soft or nonexistent frees.

Stirlsy

Moves Strnadica onto ground, just stand there son and dont do a thing… here have this C

hedski

Woo hoo. Fckn go cats, take that again Smith you front running can't kick a goal prick.

Derek

bit harsh mate

Stirlsy

His excited Derek should see him at games….

Derek

You should have seen me when I thought Smith's kick was straight. The loss hurts.

Defying_Madness

Better team lost the game

TOPHAWK1

Cats have probably killed off the Hawks season. Gonna be hard to make the eight now. Such is life. At least Danger delivered a masterclass today with Jelwood going to be cheap as chips next week after going sub 100 this arvo.

Defying_Madness

I will be disgusted with myself next week when I go from Parsons to Selwood. If we nail some more recruits in the off season we could be back up there again next year. Some of the young guys look promising

Derek

It would have been very interesting if the Hawks managed to win that one.

Hang up the boots now

Jim_bob321

Still can't believe we are taking Danger's captain score after all that…

The_Bird

Are we? its a tricky score….I probably will just to give the bloke the kudos he deserves…amazing effort…if only he kicked that last one

Russty_

What's tricky about 141, not enough for you?

The_Bird

I have had 160+ for more weeks than I can count thanks to Doc, Danger and Kruze

Derek_2018

Another weekend of regretting not having Dangerfield and Docherty in my team.

Russty_

Bummer…should've picked him up when he was 560K

Derek

ha ha.

wightyswarriors

560k…..snap !!!!

manolaki

Another great round. Goldy has started my trend of poor scores. And waiting a week more for Titch was not a great idea either. How much will Mitchell be next week? Over $600k I am guessing

Joshua

Yep, now I have to decide to trade Greenwood (or Lynch) to Jelwood or Titchell. Have 300k in the bank but I might need all the money I can get for upcoming carnage in finals.

manolaki

Is Bolton playing for the Tigers?

Defying_Madness

Dont think so

Beezneez

I hope not – I have him as C loophole for Danger.

Beezneez

Just doubled his score from 8 to 16 in the last couple of minutes. At least my opponent has Grundy to match him atm.

Joshua

Who to keep at F6 out of Lynch and Greenwood? Other will be going to Jelwood or Titch. Thinking Lynch out as he has Port in round 23 (scored 29 last time)

leedy

Suggest you allow raw emotion to dictate your decision and have a Lynching Party

red5

me too

guest

So… Reiwoldts 84 or roll the dice on Greenwood?

Russty_

Anyone know what happened with North's Hibberd today..7 points, did he get hurt or just super-spud it?

Derek

i was talking up the Port boys all week, Hoff or Wingard and in the end did nothing! Greenwood to Wingard next week

Russty_

Those port boys had a field day of points out there today!

Tyruddanaut

Dixon once again providing

Defying_Madness

Is Ryder all right?

INPieman

Anyone that plays port goes massive

INPieman

North rather

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Patch poison strikes again!
Jezza out.
What r the chances?
Too funny except if u r poor old patch.

Ja191

cameron late out with hammy for gws

Tyruddanaut

I had doubts. But it looks like I shouldn't have. So far I have had 5 players play with 4 above 100 Danger C and Jelwood 96

Tyruddanaut

I spoke too soon. With 5 players in the GC v CM game only one is en route to ton up

Don't Blush Baby

Suns by 6 points atm and down to 2 on the bench for the 2nd half, seriously the Pies should win , if they don't ????

Russty_

I think Bucks will be getting the sack regardless mate.

Russty_

At least Adams isn't crappin his Daks again today, go large young man!

Rick Grimes

Looking a cheap acquisition

Russty_

I'm more concerned with him delivering the points, as I've had him from day one, he's meant to be an elite defender/mid, not a butchering spud.

Derek

He faded in last quarter

Russty_

I'll take his 125 with the fading factored in 🙂

Rick Grimes

What score do we take on Lynch. I'm thinking anything over 75?

Tim

thanks to everyone who told me to get rid of Ablett last week because he was buggered

Nick

We're here for advice, whether you take that advice is your own choice.

Rick Grimes

Personal responsibility

TOPHAWK1

Is it time to take out the little violin is it?

Mate, you hit that trade button. Your call, your decisions, your consequences.

Trade wisely.

Derek

Depends who you got instead.

I traded Gaz to Docherty. Very happy

Russty_

Can't go wrong with that really, or Gaz to Danger or Titch, whining about it though, makes ya look like a whiney lil biatch..Tim.

TOPHAWK1

Treloar delivers!!

Well, well well. What a nice surprise. Your head is off the chopping block…….for now.

Now, over to you Hanners……. Do me proud mate!

Mate, dont fark it up. I am not in a forgiving mood. Deliver a tonne or I will drop you like a sack of scheit for Jelwood.

Derek

im glad you kept him. Saw many people wanting to trade him out.

Defying_Madness

Might be time to trade out Pendles?

GloryDays90

Not trade him out. But next year he will not be in a lot of teams if he does not lift in coming weeks..

Mongrel

Do it.

GloryDays90

Bloody Pendles! Wont be starting him next year… starting to lose his supercoach touch.

Derek

he touched it twice in last quarter

Jose

and spent 10+ minutes sitting on the bench in the last quater

Russty_

Baby brain has turned his brain to baby batter.

Defying_Madness

Should I take Scharenbergs score, or I can loophole Greenwood into Witherden with some nice DPP swaps.

Russty_

Yeah I'd bank on Greenwood and Witherden getting more than 72.

BrownlowBoy

Pieman! Ablett coming back into your team?

Russty_

Hahaha, I don't think he'll want to use 8 trades on one guy lol

hedski

Gold

Russty_

Gazza!…..you injured every second week bastard!…kinda wish I had ya…or not?…lol, not sure.

You are a talented, little bald bastard though.

Joshua

Next week Lynch to Jelwood, Greenwood will be holding down F6

Trats1999

Jeremy Cameron late out

hedski

Glad I looped him Pie.

Billioux

Evening all, I find it incredulous that people bitch and whinge about the advice/opinions offer here when it doesn't quite work out. Please give me a spell! That is what SC is all about.. Opinions.. I pumped up B Ebert about 6 weeks ago and i also said nothing good comes from injury prone 290K rookies (scooter). I was chastised big time after Scooter's first 2 weeks. Fair enough. I am not writing this to "told you so" Quite the contrary. I am no guru and have made plenty of blues this year but have backed my thoughts. The moral here i guess is the more opinions/thoughts etc on this forum the better i reckon however at the end of the day it is your keyboard and your team.

Russty_

Well said mate, people that whine about.."someone else making them do something"…probably whine about a lot of things in life, that are their own call.

TOPHAWK1

Correct! This is a forum to talk and discuss SC. At the end of the day, all coaches make decisions, whether good or bad.

If good, that's great! If bad, cop it on the chin.

I am with you on this mate.

Tyruddanaut

It has taken me a while to realize my gut is more important than everyone else's

Russty_

Yeah right?…there sure isn't any exact science to this caper, guts, luck, research, and timing all play a part.

TOPHAWK1

Heath Shaw is getting frost bite. 4 SC points at quarter time, with 1 disposal. Not good enough! Even with Zac Williams playing!

Joshua

Getting rid of him next week, probs for Hurley

Russty_

Him and Newman, spudding the crap out of things.

Joshua

is Houli back next week? Might have to take a look at him, was in good form

Russty_

AFL Website says round 19…expect a lot of booing and the effects of that if you bring him in though.

Derek

He came good

Finnius123

Newman to adams next week

Russty_

Gawny is looking like a bit of a…shadow of his former Beard!…glad I didn't believe the hype a few weeks back and get him in at all costs…he hasn't shown much yet, so far, a bit of a worry for the beardless ones owners.

Finnius123

Playing awfully! I knew I should have gone Darcy 🙁

Finnius123

Greenwood is carving up with only 55% TOG

TOPHAWK1

Max Gawn. WTF? You shave off your beard, and now you play like this? If you have any skeletons in the closet that we need to know about, feel free to let the community know..

Russty_

I got the feeling from his interviews, when he was killing it, that at the time, his motivation was to be "the best ruckman in the competition"..I think his motivation has waned now, that he's probably making big money, probably thinks he can just cruise.

He won't be Melbourne's number 1 ruckman with that attitude for long.

Defying_Madness

Might be wasting trades but I am considering trading Gawn to Martin or Mummy who are currently cheap. Can't be fielding crap like this and I don't have time to wait until he gets his beard back together

Russty_

If you can do that without running out mate, I'd do it, something is terribly wrong with Gawn.

Defying_Madness

Have 5 currently, and Parsons to Selwood is locked next week but I am playing for rank so might have to pull the trigger

TOPHAWK1

A beard like that takes years to grow back. Watch Stef Martin tomorrow, without Archie Smith. If he tonnes up, straight switch.

Billioux

Yep. I fell for him too,luckly loop holed. Hopefully we get something out of him in weeks to come..As for tonight bye bye hipster max hello mad max..

Top Gun

Perhaps he needs more games to come good? He was out a long time.

Defying_Madness

Witts to Gawn looking like the stupidest trade I have ever made…

Russty_

You were just trying to get ahead…no way to forsee that kind of spudding from the former best ruck in the comp.

GloryDays90

Max Gawn was a shocking trade in 🙁 what a flop!

Russty_

Bloody glad I played Greenwood and benched Pederson this week, Pederson's gone this week coming, from my side.

GloryDays90

Least you didnt trade in Gawn… he is flopping big time

manolaki

question is do you take greenwood's score or take a punt on nank?

Russty_

Have to take Greenwood's score, and Nank's cause I have Pederson as emergency…who has scored sweet FK all.

TOPHAWK1

I have been screaming from the rooftops all year that Sloane can not handle the tag. It is on show again tonight.
