A Letter to our Community

Published by Jock on

Jock Reynolds SuperCoach 2018

By now you’ve probably heard that Crouching went absolutely ape shit after Richmond won the flag.

Absolutely off his chops. Even by his standards.

You may have even seen some of the imagery going around the world wide internet.

The dry rooting of the Premiership Cup and of Dimma. The closed caption footage from a series of Thirsty Camel stores. The turd in the coaches box at The Adelaide Oval. The mutilated livestock. Those others we can’t even mention.

Right off his chops.

Higgo and I have spent a lot of the off season searching for him.  We followed an unconfirmed sighting to The Bungle Bungles in WA. Columbia. Amsterdam. Hastings. Pyanmah itself. Dandenong Family Holiday Park. Been all over the shop.

We eventually found the beautiful prick in a small village in Puerto Rico. Got there just in time. The locals were in the process of burning him to death.

They’d found him kneeling by a stream, feasting on the flank of a recently killed Buffalo. Suspected he was the mythical Chupacabra. Strung the poor prick up above a pile of wood and burned him. Burned him bad.

But we found him. We got him.

He’s doing alright. Not speaking yet. Strange far-off look in his eyes. Unable to move any limbs or facial features on the right hand side of his body. Lower half of his body charred like an overcooked snag. But we think he’ll be ok.

We think our mate will get through this.

New beginnings.

He’s with his family now. I catch a bus there each morning to redress his burns and slip him a sly six pack of Bundy Rum when Mrs Crouching leaves the room.

Higgo visits with Cathy and Father Ondown, the local priest. They sprinkle incense and shit on him for a few hours each day and chant shit.

Higgo won’t let on about Cathy. I reckon he might have. Not sure. He won’t let on. Shit I love my friend.

And me?

I’ve been living off the land. Found a nice patch of State Forest to call my own. Snarin rabbits. Diggin yams. Off the grid. Close enough to the coast to grab a wave a few times a week and hang the toes off the nose.

You see, the last few months with Crouching have caused both of us to think about life. About death. About the earth.

And about the wonderful opportunities that all of us have for new beginnings and rebirth.

A new dawn.

Today myself, Peter Higginbotham and The Crouching One are stepping down from holding the honour of leading this community for season 2018. 

And mark my words my beautiful friends – THIS IS A DAY TO CELEBRATE.

For on this day we hand the baton over to three of the most impressive individuals a bloke or chick will even come across. Three men who embody what this community is all about.

Three men who understand that SuperCoach is important. Bloody important. Bloody FUN. But above all else – three men who understand the very essence of this thing and importantly – of this community.

Togetherness. Kinship. Brotherhood. Sisterhood. Respect. Positivity. Encouragement. A beacon of light in a world where too many humans don’t understand what life’s all about.

Love.

They understand that we fight the good fight on these internet pages. All of you do.

Lekdog. Barron Von Crown. Patch.

Step forward now my sons. Lead this community. Feed my people. Lead them onwards to green pastures of Supercoach Supremacy

I’m extremely proud of each on of you. I love you – and Higgo, Crouching and me will always love this community.

Let’s not get all bloody misty – let’s kick this bloody season off!! Whack your teams in the comments and let’s make beautiful SuperCoach.

Jock Reynolds.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

When i saw this post i thought of the final scene in "pump up the volume"
Everyone thinks its over and disappointed then the music comes on and a huge cheer erupts and everyone hugs and celebrates. !
Inspiring stuff.
Bloody sad news on the three demi gods of this great game wish crouching all the best.
You have left us all much better supercoaches and people in general.
Thank you. Thank you.

But u have also have left us in pretty good hands the three muskateers (all for one and one for all – community motto) im sure will do a great job as they have learnt from the master and r ready to spread their wings and fly.

Lets go. Bring on 2018….

Lekdog

All for one Trigga, thanks for the positive vibes. Let's all take a moment to say thanks to Jock, Higgo and Crouching…they were bloody legends

Andrew

Thanks for everything! Good luck to patch, lekdog and bvc. Looking forward to a great season.

@wheels_1987

When players like Tony Free, Benny Gale and Wayne Campbell grace the field in yellow and black, then retire, you think to yourself. How could those DEMI GODS be replaced

Hard to believe but IT HAPPENED for the tigers

We now have Brandon Ellis, Dylan Grimes and Prestia as the new Demi-Gods

Lets put up a shrine, bow down and pray, then turn to our new pastors and praise

Kram

Every great thing must come to an end. Gonna miss you blokes like buggery this season, but on to new beginnings we must go and look forward to the new dawn

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Simpson, O’Shea, Doedee, Keefe, Murray, Goddard

I want to pick Ryder. What will you do about the round 10 bye?

SC_Kev7

I laughed. I cried. I feel happy that this Community will on. You'll always be welcome back behind the microphone, Jock

Send my regards to Crouching for a quick recovery.

xoxo

@wheels_1987

1 leik = 1 respect for crouching

Lekdog

We'' miss them but the community is strong, together we can crowdfund Crouching One some new legs

Shake n bake

Hey Kev do me and yourself a favour join Up There Cazaly!! 212948. Would be great to have you join most of the gang.

BrownlowBoy

Thanks for everything Jock. My love of Supercoach can be put down to you. I stumbled across your website a novice, didn't even know what a premo or mid pricer was. You changed the landscape of Supercoach forever mate, you will always be the Father of Fantasy.

@wheels_1987

i just penned my heart and soul in this thread. Jock is a god

Lekdog

Amen

Vinnie

Lest we forget our forefathers

@wheels_1987

What are our lives but death begun…

There are not the right words yet invented in the language of the Kings to properly convey the impact Jock Reynolds and his cohorts have had, not just on my Fantasy life, but also over that blurry line that crosses into my reality also.

Despite the calls for celebration, I cannot find it in my heart to smile at all. For the loss of greatness is never something to enjoy. Not yet anyway.

There in that Studio, tarp flapping and microphones lit up in red, ON AIR lights pulsing in their neon drenched splendor lighting up the Winters gone, true brilliance was created. And shared. They say the most despicable thing about excellence is that it requires an audience. But on this occasion, we can only feel blessed that Jock, Higgins and Crouching dared to dream all those years ago, and then bothered to share it with us…

You never know what you’ve got until it’s gone… Sifting through the ashes of all that we’ve lost, a single tear rolls down my cheek. Questions pepper my mind. Did I take this for granted? Was there more I could have done? Or was old mate right from my childhood – that all good things must come to an end…?

Let this be a lesson to us all today Community. There are possibly an umpteenth amount of things in all our lives that are fundamental to our veritable lives. Today we learned that we don’t show enough appreciation to them; that we need to remain more present in their blessed moments; and that we need to remain cognoscente of the things that truly matter to us – and celebrate them openly.

There’s a black hole sized gap in the SuperCoach landscape now. The characters that have exited stage left are seemingly gone, but lest we forget what they have given rise to. A community. The Jock Reynolds Fantasy Football Community.

Let us stay united. Let us continue to preach his word. To stay together, here, and share wisdoms, build our army, and conquer this great game.

VALE Jock. VALE Higgo. VALE Crouching. May the roads rise to meet you, and the winds be at your back as you continue on also without us. My only hope is that in your retirements you know that you have brought a lot of joy and touched many lives. I for one feel more like I’ve lost my closest friends.

Over to the new generation now. May you wear your crowns with the respect imbued by the follicles of the previous Kings…

Thank you Jock. You’ve been something truly special.

The NOTORIOUS Timmy Tomahawk.

@wheels_1987

amazing penmanship – a perfect piece of prose that can only come close to the real pain one experiences at times like these.

Lekdog

You are a wizard Tomahawk! These words will forever be etched into the Supercoach halls of glory. Thanks for everything, we will try and keep the community strong.

Dave

WHAT?!? No more children’s stories? Whatever shall I do? They must be published to preserve historical significance!

@wheels_1987

Panama Children Story 🙂

Jedders

Words can’t explain my sadness and at the same time my extreme gratitude towards Jock, Higgins & Crouching One. Over these years I have laid in my bed late on Sunday nights, headphones in and laughed to the point of tears and always smiling ear to ear. I hated the end of podcasts because I had to wait another bloody 7 days. The reason for my passion for this community and SuperCoach is because of you Jock. The first time when we met at Doyle’s for CoachKings grand opening when “Grunnnnndy” kicked the sealer and broke Higgo’s heart. The footage of me going bananas was the beginning of a new era of Sports Fantasy in this nation. Jock, mate I can’t wait for our next beer and to be going back and forth on all that’s going on in the world. Now the batton has been passed onto the new great legends of our community, Leky, Baz & Patch (killer blokes) I really feel we should have party to celebrate your contributions to all of us Super Coaches our there. Let’s throw out some suggestions on how we can thank Jock & Higgo for their selflessness over the years last.
Love you mate
Jedders Out

Jedders

Sorry for all the spell check errors. Sorry “Higgo” haha

Lekdog

Love you Jedders, you're a glorious human being!

Westy

Thanks for everything, Jock. Is Coach Cowboy still going to impart his wisdom in 2018?

We'll get around Lekdog, Barron and Patch.

gator59

Good luck to yo Jocck, Higgo and Crouching on what endeavours you may embark on.. have had many laughs along the journey and great insight of this game they call SC……I take my hat off to all of you kneel and bow for all your efforts..

The place will be in great hands with Lek,, Barron and Patch and wish them all the best of taking over the reins

Looking forward to a lot more laughs… cheers fellas…. welcum

They talk about the signifigance of Gough being Sacked on remembrance day 1975

This day will go down in history for gon zillions of milleniums

Thank you Jock, Higgo and Crouching! Gonna miss you guys like buggery! Lek Dog, Barron Von Crow & Patch have been around the place for a while now and are ready to step up and lead this magnificent community!

gator59

Hi BS,, I see you got into the league ok … I'm not sure if you have played against any of the other coaches before

There's some pretty good ones and all I can say to you is stay focused… I have confidence in you and you wont let the league down………. best of luck mate

Lekdog

Thanks Blacksheep, we'll do our best

@wheels_1987

I cant believe it. I started my supercoach journey in 2012. Working as a Police Officer the banter in the office is top notch and the pride you have when you walk in the office, with the top score for the league is a feeling that cant be described. For me though the tale hasn't always been supercoach league titles and being the mentor for the young recruits in the office… times were tough back in 2012…. before then I had "dabbled" in the supercoach world. That pain you feel when you don't break 1000 pts was too hard to bear… come 2012. I put my best team forward and in my head I was unbeatable. I joined the work league with my chest out. Then round 1 hit and it was all downhill from there. My pride had taken a hit. That's when I found my golden sunlight, the beacon to light the way, the father…of MY fantasys. On my walks to work I started to LISTEN and LEARN. Jock took me from the work place laughing stock to a supercoach beast. SInce joining Jocks cult I have won ALL my draft leagues. I have finished in the top 12 for weekly scores and haven't been out of the top 10,000 for yearly results… I thank the father of fantasy for what he has made me… God Bless the boys and PS – Go TIgers

Lekdog

Wheels! So great to hear how Jock and the community has touched your life. You're a legend of this place and I can't wait to see what you have in store for 2018.

@wheels_1987

me too !!!!!

Lekdog

Me too

Bazza

Me too

Holty

A very sad day. You boys will be missed. But we must not dwell over sad news as the batton has now been passed on to another 3. Lets get behind Lek, BVC and Patch and give it every opportunity to work.
Jock, Higgo and Crouching, wishing you all the very best for your future endeavours. Hope they are as funny and enjoyable as I found your weekly podcasts.
Lek, BVC and Patch, as Neil said above, make it work as I'm sure this loyal community will give you the support you need to succeed.

@wheels_1987

🙁

Holty

Hi Trev.
What you did in such a short period of time was a credit to you and others who submitted articles. I honestly think you should start it back up as we still have no real indication as when we will get any content on this page.

Holty

Hi Trev.
Sent a post in the Cripps contents. Hope that is enough

Lekdog

Beers indeed Hedski

hedski

Onya Lek, just cracked another can.
Noticed your tweet below with the microphone about to go live.
What can we look fwd to mate? Podcast or new video? Cheers.

Lekdog

Podcast, heading to the studio with Patch now

hedski

Sweeeeet.

Krups

Bloody hell we need a public holiday to stand all together as one amd remember. Gee what a ride its been. Thanks so much for all your support blokes. Supercoach will never be the same.

WoW_Trevor

How come my post advising that the other site is back until you get content was deleted straight away but a tirade of racial abuse towards me from a jock impersonator stayed here for days?

Neil Demons Delight

The site you created was just what we all wanted trev better than that It takes a lot of time and expense to do that but you have support mate There is room for another just like red rooster to KFC or scpaige only difference you have to want it Give it a go see where it takes you

WoW_Trevor

You and Russty were as much responsible for it as I was Neil. Anyway it's back. I fixed wombats Kruezer Lie and made it factual and two new articles since you last visited

Neil Demons Delight

For how long competition is good go for it

Lekdog

I think if you have links it automatically gets removed Trev

WoW_Trevor

Fair enough I don't think I linked. Sometimes the intense debate puts stuff in the spam folder for no reason

T-Boners

What is this other site?

WoW_Trevor

fantasysupercoach.com

WoW_Trevor

Nick off troll

STIRLSY

So long Jock,Higgo and Crouching, you will be missed muchly, how am I going to get by without that maths wiz Higgo what will I do with the 2 days it took to figure out his numbers, who will be the maths wiz in the new crew? Maybe the Barron steps up here. Where will I get my laughs without Crouching, Patch is going to have to step it up and be the funnyman, and Lek has the all mother of jobs from taking over from the great man, but we know yr up to it LekDog.
All the best and have a great year to the incoming team.
And a big, huge thx to Jock, Higgo, and Crouching for all there work in past years.

gator59

Great stuff mate .. welcome aboard

INPieman

As soon as I read this this morning I jumped straight into the car & drove to Dan Murphy's & grabbed a 30 pack. A today I will demolish every one of the tasty bastards in honour of my old mates. The world of fantasy will never be the same again. Thanks for the laughs fellas

gator59

Great stuff Pieman.. Have one for me too

INPieman

Next frothy is for you Gator. That will be number 14. Cheers

Neil Demons Delight

bugger it no bundy pies

INPieman

Bundy & Pies Neil. Sounds like a cracking dinner. I'll do that

gator59

thanks Pieman

@wheels_1987

30 Pack
That must be Red Bitter your drinking??? hahahah

Tyruddanaut

This is the saddest thing I’ve seen this year.
I love you Jock, Higgins and Crouching with a passion. The joy you brought to my life last year during my struggle helped me find my happy place. And now I’m a nanny McPhee moment, you’re gone. When I want, but no longer need you.

I hope you all have a bright future ahead, achieve your dreams and share your humour with the world.

Shaun

Hi all just started a league 607433 all welcome to join.

WoW_Trevor

Hey Lek, You guys obviously have a problem with your hosting server or something. Why don'y you email me some of the content you have and I'll post it for you until you're up and running here.

WoW_Trevor

It'll mean that your stuff is published while its fresh, I can even setup like a sub-site for JR stuff. Otherwise you run the risk of publishing a heap of content that is stale and the other sites will accuse you of copying them.

INPieman

A man with a plan. Nice work Hedski. Hope your well mate

hedski

Yeah doin well Pie, same to you, kids still driving me mad (na, they're ok).
Have put my foot (OK not my foot) in it again, junior hedski number 4 due in a couple of months.
#time to tie a knot in it!

INPieman

4. Is that all. Since I started on Tinder I must have about 35 of them now!

derek

what i loved most about Jock was how humble he was.

seriously, Jock Reynolds has probably been the single biggest influence, not only on the great game of supercoach, but on the game of AFL itself, at least in the last 50 years.

sure he could sit there all day and talk about himself, about how he won Supercoach 6 times in a row, the third time he went the whole season without making a single trade, or how he took young Gary Ablett aside and showed him how to sidestep and i'm certain that Sam Mitchell wouldn't have a left foot if it wasn't for Jock's patience with him, but Jock won't talk about any of that, he would prefer that no-one talked about how he was the first person to predict that Dangerfield would go to Geelong and become the uber supercoach player that he is now, in fact, if Jock was reading this now he would want me to stop typing and just talk about his community instead of mentioning that he played a record 643 straight games of AFL, he is truely humble man, and a great 'uman bein'.

i'll miss the podcasts the most. let us all hope that he will make regular guest appearance.

gator59

Well said Derek.. and we'll all miss the great messiah and team… But as they say in the classics the show must go on so onwards and upwards from here with Lek, Patch and Barron

Shake n bake

Thats what l was thinking and hoping, that he makes guest appearances during the yr.

StevoRivo

Yes a big legacy you leave Jock, Higgo & Crouching! You’ve all been awesome & so happy the Tigers 🐅 won that lag at last! Hopefully once the new hosts settle, maybe a cameo? We are in safe hands with Lek, Patch & Baron.

Now, please rate my starting team community….Bring on 2018…

D: Hurley, Yeo, Laird, Bonner, O’Shea, Doedee (S.Murray, Morgan);
M: Danger, Dusty, Fyffe, Cripps, Coniglio, Armitage, Rayner, Davies-Uniakie (Barry, Spargo, Kelly);
R: Gawn, Nic-Nat (Hayes);
F: Heeney, Billing’s, Dahlhaus, Stringer, Higgins (Rich), Ahern (Ryan, Garlett).

Any advice welcomed!

FisherDan

Sadness grips.
Now that you are gone, I wasn't as scared of losing you, As I am scared of losing myself.
Every season I've looked forward to hearing your voices each week, with unrivalled humour and absolute pearls of wisdom.
It's no fluke that my Supercoach team's upward trends coincided with discovering the podcast back in 2012.
Jock, Higgo and Crouching. You will be missed!!

Sometimes you have to let go of what's gone, appreciate what still remains and look forward to what's coming next.
All the best Lekdog, Patch and Barron, for the baton has been passed. Your brilliantly comprehensive, witty in-depth articles I'm sure will continue. And will we see the return of the LekCast?

I raise my beer to you Jock, Higgo and Crouching One.

Lekdog

Regular podcast content will start this week, same jock time, same jock channel

The Ranger

Was that you I saw fishing off the beach near Welshpool the other night Jock?
I thought it was you but you legged it into the dunes when I drove towards you. Maybe the headlights freaked you out.
Gimme the heads up mate and I'll turn the other cheek and ignore the traps.

Thanks for all you've given us over the years Jock. You'll be missed by many. Onya mate.
Lek, Barron, Patch, nice one for stepping up to the plate.

SirSamuel016

Jock, Higgo, Crouching. Thank you for all you've done, we'll miss you three blokes a hell of a lot. Looking forward to what Lekdog, Barron and Patch will bring to the table this year!

Current draft of my team is as follows:
DEF: Hurley, Laird, Lever, O'Shea, Doedee, Murray (Cumming, Goddard)
MID: Martin, Mitchell, J. Kelly, Zorko, Fyfe, Cripps, Davies-Uniacke, Higgins (Garlett, T. Kelly, Holman)
RUCK: Witts, Gawn (Cameron)
FWD: Heeney, Gray, D. Smith, Rayner, Stephenson, Ryan (W. Rioli, Ahem)
Any thoughts?

ToughBrett

Def: Hurley, Laird, Mcgrath, Coffield, Doedee, Murray (Morgan, Mirra)

Mid: Danger, Kelly, Oliver, Fyfe, Beams, Parker, Blakely, Ahern (Kelly, Worpel, Holman)

Ruck: Gawn, Nat (Archie Smith)

Fwd: Billings, Walters, Christensen, Ah Chee (WCE), Higgins, Venables (Ryan, Keefe)

Logic with the setup is that I really have no idea who is going to emerge as a top 6 FWD, so I’m going to leave that line open to cash generation and stack up sure things around the rest of the ground.

Parker/Cripps is one choice that is giving me grief, and would be happy to hear opinions on that too.
I also figure that Oliver and Titch are essentially the same player, and I’m intrigued to see Oliver continue to improve (He’s 20 years old and coming off a 110+ average – insane).

Lastly, having Archie Smith on the ruck bench gives me a small amount of insurance in case one of the ruckman goes down and I think it frees me from needing that FWD/RUC DPP situation.

Appreciate any feedback

Derek

Get rid of Archie.

Jake

Get d.smith in the forward.

ToughBrett

instead of walters or billings? I don't think smith is in the "must have" territory yet.

The Ranger

He's not managed a full preseason so I've put a line thru Nic Nat.

ToughBrett

I think I'm changing Nat to Nank. Nank hasn't even turned 24 years old yet so he's only getting better, and 21 games last year is a great sign.
Changing Archie down to English, and upgrading Parker to Duncan, who finished the year with a 10 game average of 122 including finals.

Rick Grimes

I'm on Nank. See him playing solely ruck and pushing his average to around 100.

INPieman

I've done the same Ranger with Nic Nat. He's still in cotton wool. Pass

Derek

I want Ryder, but what do I do with round 10

Beezneez

Scott Lycett?

Derek

I was expecting NicNat to be cheaper. But he isn’t that cheap. Was hoping he was around $308k like Sandi last year.

Rick Grimes

I'm not even sure Archie will play. History has shown Stef has to be the lone wolf. Surely they'll ditch any other strategies this year.

ToughBrett

I think Archie gets games. Stef is 32 and ruckmen generally start breaking down around a similar age. As a Lions supporter I'd love to be wrong because Stef on his own is clearly our best option, but the club is high on Archie.

Russty_

Hey Brett, I reckon pick 2 good rucks and if one goes down, pick a new good ruck., no point wasting money on a guy who might play this year, all bench rucks are crap.

Rick Grimes

I'm both sad and happy. Will really miss Jock and the lads, but glad we'll have something to hang our collective fantasy hats on. Looking forward to some new content. Chur

Hoot

Whens the first post for the new team coming?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

I would think day of reflection and respect today to raise a glass

Maybe tomorrow or the day after for the 3 muskateers to launch and bring in a brave new world

Hoot

Going out for Eastern cuisine to celebrate!

Lekdog

Tomorrow is a new day, today is for the fallen…well miss you Jock

TommyC99

Sad to see Jock go, but its a new beginning for this great website. Looking forward to the season ahead!

Which 2 out of Tracca, devon smith and Curnow?

The_Blacksheep

I am watching Tracca and Smith very closely with Smith just ahead of Tracca atm. Not sold on Curnow just yet.
Consider Lobb if he is fit and firing, averaged 112 when first ruck last year.

Beastiano

A very big thankyou and goodluck to the boys in community retirement, will miss the innuendo and laughs from the podcasts, many were had, but many will be had with the new breed too, couldn’t have named a better crew to lead us forth into Supercoach temptation.

Russty_

Best of luck in the future Jock, Crouching and Higgo, with whatever endeavours you're all moving onto.
You all gave us a lot of laughs, banter and priceless info that enabled all of us community to become better, more skilled Supercoaches, not to mention the Podcasts, which were always a hoot,and your efforts are widely appreciated.
Take care fellas.
Russ

Borko

Thanks Jock, Higgo and Crouching! Have listened since 2014 and really appreciate all the laughs and insight! Will particularly miss Higgo's Quantum Team Mechanics … taught me a lot about the game. Good luck for the future lads!

Russty_

Yeh Borko, the Higginator will be missed!

@wheels_1987

Quantum Team Mechanics… Oh how it will be missed

Chris

Thanks for all your hard work boys, stumbled across this place and never looked back, it was an education…

All the best for the future, you've left your legacy in good hands!

WoW_Trevor

WTF LEK
What's going on with these comments?

Danners

Thank you Jock, Crouching, and Higgo for your wonderful wisdom over the years. Been around the website for around 6 or 7 years and it will hard to get through the Supercoach season without the magnificent trio. Looking forward to new beginnings with BVC, Lekdog, and Patch!

@wheels_1987

Jock, Crouching, and Higgo all leaving the SC community at once? I am gutted. You guys were legends of SC. But it is what it is.

Will miss you Jock.;-(

Patch, BVC, and Lekdog you guys all rock! (Rhymes too…)

Let's rip the face off Supercoach this season!!

Russty_

TOPHAWK1

I always take time out in the off season to 'reload", just like Jock. Pull your head in Russty.

Russty_

Yep…righto then, I was joking around but…whatever.

TOPHAWK1

Russty_

Dean

Jock,

You, and you trusted duo of misfits managed to put a smile on many a face for the past few years. You all added a unique presence in our community. One that you built, which we all owe you a debt of gratitude for. There’s a famous quote that states…” if you build it, they will come”. Well, you indeed build it, and we came, and now you leave the game, and the community will never be the same without you. Thanks for the memories.

@wheels_1987

well said

Skindog

The world just got a little bit darker, a little bit colder, thanks for the Mamories boys, was a great ride,

Neil Demons Delight

TOPHAWK check the comments from your last post

TOPHAWK1

Will do. Hopefully not too much abuse. Hehe

Kevin(Bogan Juniors)

Your podcast helped me get through some pretty dark times. Thanks for the happy memories gentlemen. All the best to you.

Tappy

Well played you fine bastards. That podcast helped me navigate pitiful Sydney traffic and the game in general is poorer without you lads. Enjoy retirement and best of luck to Crouching in his rehab.

Derek

I would love someone to do a “best bits” of the Podcast.

There was an episode that did a few of the old ones, if anyone can remember and put up a link.

In fact, it would be great if people posted a link to there favourite Casting of the Pod. Some people may still have them in their browser memory. I do remember a mother’s day episode…….

The Ranger

I was listening back to some of the 2012 podcasts this morning.
Jeez them boys have aged.

FearTheBeard

Bless you lads. May you find joy in your next chapters 🙂

The new trio! Big shoes to fill. Sure you will 😀

INPieman

Geez I'm feeling Dusty today. Holy shit what a bender

Imgonnalose

Too many supercoachers will be nursing a flogged noggin this morning after the celebration of a legacy that will live on. Gone but never forgotten.

INPieman

Agreed

hedski

I'm with ya there Pie, just knocked off work, hair of the dog time.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Apparently a record # of sickies were taken today.

Forefather hangover.

INPieman

And a record number of booze sold yesterday. Move over Australia day. Feb 11th is get your Jock's out day

Jason

Is there a jock fantasy magazine 2018 ?

gator59

After all that's happened .. I would say no

INPieman

We don't even have a Jock. Let alone a magazine

Shake n bake

Billings hammy. May miss pre season games. Was in my fwd line. 🤡🤔

hedski

Ah crap

Shake n bake

If l dont see him all pre season might have to look elsewhere hedski.

TOPHAWK1

Bloody hell. I was seriously looking at Billings, as well as Hurley in my back line. Time to make some tweeks.

Both players NOT a lock until I am 100% convinced they are fully fit and have shown some quality JLT time. Not blowing early trades having these guys fall over in the early rounds.

Shake n bake

Like u Hawk would like to see him up and running b4 the season starts or might have to run a line thru him.

hedski

Apparently did some run throughs Monday (not full pace).
Could be good to go in saints first jlt in 2 weeks.

Holty

That sux. I wont start him anymore now. Made a vowel after last season not to start anyone underdone. Jelwood is probably the only exception to this rule though.

Russty_

How bad is it shake?…did they give a time or whether it's minor or major?

IntelDesign

Any word on cash leagues, and how long before organizers of cash leagues begin raising funds for old and new leagues? Supercoach is not the same without a good cash league. Thanks in advance.

They were Kings

And now their watch is ended.

Russty_

Right!…Game of thrones…7 episodes after waiting a whole year, bugger that…Brittania will do.

TOPHAWK1

Any thoughts on Scott Lycett for R2 at $277K? I am looking for the 2018 "Jarrod Witts". He has been training the house down and looks really fit. Nic Nat is still not ready and appears to be "micro managed" at this stage.

Russty_

Haven't thought about him but Dawson Simpson could be the same deal…as Gator pointed out a few weeks back.
Lobb still has groin issues.

Lekdog

If Dawson plays, I like him

Derek

I think Vardy would be ahead of him

Loop

I have him in my team at the moment. Lots of wait and see with the Eagles.

Beezneez

I have him atm. Think he may be ahead of Vardy if fit – he hasn't missed a session over summer. Has still scored well even when NicNat has been playing. Could be a good stepping stone to a premium ruck and allows me to spend money elsewhere. Keep it quiet though.

Beezneez

PS: in 2016 he posted eight SC tons and averaged 83.

Neil Demons Delight

any of Gawn Kruze Sauce or Steph set and forget THEN get on with the other lines easy peasy

Doc_1

Or can Dawson Simpson gets us to round 10 to become ryder??

@wheels_1987

Topolinos Pizza in St Kilda is a good pizza if you want to put on 10kgs from each slice. Amazing meat to base ratio

*ruck Darcy Cameron

Luke

Jock mate, hope you get to see this message.

Can't say I'm shocked that you won't be leading us into 2018, but just as disappointed all the same. I'm gonna miss the podcasts and you're sensational fantasy footy knowledge being at the forefront of my team planning and execution.

Mate, I know this is all just a little game, but no shit, it actually makes my week a little easier and a lot more fun! The fact that you, Crouching and Higgo were always such a huge part of this game to me, I have to say thank you so much for everything. You've made a difference for a lot of people out there, including me.

Wishing you blokes all the best for the future. Godspeed, you magnificent bastards.

ToughBretts

DEF: Hurley, Laird, McGrath, Coffield, Doedee, Murray (Cumming, Mirra)

MID: Danger, Kelly, Crouch, Duncan, Fyfe, Beams, Blakely, Ahern (T. Kelly, Worpel, Holman)

RUC: Gawn, Longer (English)

FWD: Heeney, Walters, Smith, Higgins, Venables, Dawson (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

I feel like my M1-M7 can all average 105+, and Blakely will turn into a Titch, Martin or Zerrett the second one of them slips up.

McGrath has big year written all over him as a number on draft pick that just completed his midfield apprenticeship and is ready to go in full time.

I've put a line through Nic Nat because it's just too close to the season to still be not training with the main group, and with Lycett back up and running as well I can't see them giving Nat a full workload to start the season.
Longer I feel is primed to break out. Still only 24, and was a top 10 draft pick, and finished off last season averaging 105 from his last four games. Also, he's close enough to Nat price-wise that if Nic does explode out of the blocks it is a cheap upgrade.

Happy to hear any feedback or discuss picks

Shake n bake

If you could only fit one in your side who would you take Beams $557k or Cripps $537k?

ToughBretts

Beams, just because I think Brisbane will win more games this year which really favours him as a goal-kicking mid.
Carlton will get belted pretty often and its hard to score 120+ in big losses

CalebCripps922

Cripps

GloryDays90

Any feedback is welcome.
Still not sold on some players:

DEF: Laird, Rich, TMac, Naughton, Murray, Doedee (Mirra, Cumming)

MID: Danger, Mitchell, Fyfe, Pendles, Cripps, Rayner, LDU, Brodie (Holman, Dow, Kelly)

RK: Goldy, Gawn( Hayes)

FWD: Heeney, Billings, Dahlhaus, Sicily, Ahern, Ryan( Switkowski, Garlett)

156.1k left in bank

hedski

Kick Rich as far away as you can GD.
With that cash I'd put Hibbo or Howe in.

ToughBretts

Dump Rich and Tmac and upgrade to keepers (Hurley and Hib/Ellis/Simpson)
I like both Rich and Tmac but don't see them being top 6 defenders, Hodge plays Rich's role better than Rich does and Tmac is going to be a key forward which is a big no

Rabbits16

Im calling my psychiatrist right now. How could you do this to us. tell us its a cruel joke Jock

Scyb

Anyone going near gazza???

Doughboy

You can't can you?………Gazza, Danger, Jelwood, and co……….who's playing where????

Russty_

Could be a Point of difference, no one knows until it unfolds.

Loo

Fyfe or Cripps M6?

ToughBretts

Lock Fyfe in and forget about it

Doughboy

I took both, couldn't separate them

Frankston Phil

Sad news you will be missed. I might see you next time YC play your boys down at Bon Beach and we can have a few frothies. Thanks for all the good work won't be the same without you.

Walter White

Hi, I appreciate all this content but could we please have some rookie cheat sheets, or news on who is on the senior list/rookie list.

Krups

They may come once the JLT series starts

Doughboy

Literally devo on the retirement of Jock,Higgo & Crouching!

Feel free to join…..must be a Fantasy Geek or a retired bush league Warwick Capper!

The Far Canal

I have no intent to be disrespectful to the new fellas but I've got this churning in my gut that tells me they're big shoes to fill. I used to log on to Jock for the laugh probably more than for the SC insight, so if Patch, Barron and Lekdog can pull this off then it will be a special effort. Such a fine dynamic were the original 3 – it's a tough challenge. I'm open to change and would love to be pleasantly surprised, all the best guys, I hope you pull it off.
