PODCAST: THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

Published by Lekdog & Patch on

PlayPlay

HERE IT IS, COMMUNITY!

It’s the final countdown, the last chance, the end of days. Preseason is just about over, and we’re about to kick into the real deal, and your homeboys Lek Doggy Dog and Patchy McPatchface are here to guide you through the last week of Supercoach.

We have a proper scour of the rookies, we flip-flop AGAIN on Patrick Dangerfield and Lek drinks far too many beers than can be advisable, especially for any children who may be listening.

HOWEVER, we debut a new segment from FoxFooty and the AFL 180 boys, and hear from the one and only PETER HIGGINBOTHAM who returns to us to offer one final point of difference up forward.

Throw your questions, teams and leagues into the comments – this will be one of the last times we gather round as a community before the fecal matter hits the proverbial when teams drop!

Remember you can find every single thing we’ve done in the pre-season – whether that’s sorting selections by teams, by JLT games, by positions – anything – on the drop down menus on the site.

So strap yourselves in, crank up the volume and hold onto your butts, ROUND ONE IS HERE!

Heres my team, its getting to close I'm panicking

DEFS- Laird, Tuohy, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (

Andrew

Who The F are these guys? first time i have listened since last year….Wheres crouching, Jock and Peter?????

Vnow

gotta agree, nowhere near as entertaining..

Russty_

Give em a go…bugger off if you don't want to be here.

BloodyFranklin

Come on now Andrew, surely you aren't one of those twerkers who hits up jockreynolds.com a few days before the season starts, listens to the most recent podcast and tries to build a team off that?

Things have changed bro, consider yourself lucky that there's any information on this years Supercoach season here. Because without "these guys", you'd have nothing.

Lekdog

I love this btw

BloodyFranklin

Thanks man. 🍻

Russty_

What cave have you been living in , in the last 4 months?

Tyruddanaut

I actually live in a cave, but go to an Internet cafe to compensate

The Ranger

You have an internet cafe near your cave?!

WoW_Trevor

What's an internet cafe? Is that from before mobile phones?

Tyruddanaut

Fun fact: the day after iPhones were invented (3/5/1485) the first Internet cafe was opened so that people could read the Torah on their new devices. Unfortunately people just downloaded Angry Birds leading to a decrease in Jewish population due to people being too busy trying to complete level 8

Tyruddanaut

It’s actually a Maccas but it counts

Jack

Does anyone have the JR community group code? cheers

DunedainRangers

Does anyone have the JR community group code? cheers

Lekdog

505844

DunedainRangers

thanks man

Hoot

Im having the same issue at my work where group joining isnt working via a code. What an i missing? Any tricks?

Thanks.

Tyruddanaut

You have to make sure you are putting in a group code and not a league code. Open the group menu first

Brendon

I don’t even get an option to join a group.. will only let me create a group

Holty

Is ur team completed? I had the same problem until i had selected all 30 positions

DacZawson

Just as a fun activity. I'm keen to see who people believe the Top 10 (Top 5 for rucks) players in each position will be, given that these lists likely decide the players people chose. Except for potentially the midfield (given the amount of players that could finish 108 plus), I personally believe all keepers that we start with should be finishing top 10.

Personally I see…

Laird, Hibberd, Hurley, Howe, Yeo, Houli, McGovern, Simpson, Tuohy and (maybe) Savage

Danger, Fyfe, Mitchell, Dusty, Kelly, Oliver, Crouch, Duncan, Neale, Merrett

Gawn, Kreuzer, Ryder, Goldstein, Martin

Heeney, Greene, Menegola, Franklin, Billings, Gray, Walters, Dixon, Wingard, Roughead

TommyC99

I agree with most of that mate, although i'd probably swap Duncan out with Bont, feel like he will really bounce back strong

Derek

Total points? Average? 2nd half of year?

DacZawson

Sorry I should've made that clear. I base it off average if I believe they can play over 20 games

Dean

I think its a fair call Re: The players you listed bar one.

I see Wallis being a top 6 not top 10 forward. I have my doubts on Wingard & Roughy however being top 10 in the forward line.

Why don't you see Wallis being a top 10 forward?

Starkingdom

Wallis can't stay on the park for a full season, that's enough for me to exclude him.

Randomcliche2

Pretty solid.
Touhy to llyod.
Duncan to Pendles (I think there are plenty of others ahead of him as well, even his captain).
Greene won't play 20 games, flog. Wingard out D.Smith in. If fit R.Lobb, but assuming he is not.

Tyruddanaut

Replace Touhy with Jones, Crouch with Zorko, Goldy with Nank, Roughy with Smith, Gray with Lobb and you have a team

Defying_Madness

He said it is based off average so Gray will make it easily

David

Hey guys this is my current team and wanted some feedback and advice! I have 13 players I’m hoping on keeping and 1 potential keep in Smith! I have 100k left over for last minute change or put towards early upgrade but all thoughts comments be greatly appreciated!! Thanks community

Laird, McGovern, Lloyd, Naughton, Murray, Finalayson
(Doedee, Mirra)

Martin, Mitchell, Merrett, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Banfield, Kelly
(Brodie, Holman, Barry)

Gawn, Nankervis
(Olango)

Franklin, Heeney, Billings, Smith, Christensen, Rayner
(Fritsch, Ryan)

BloodyFranklin

Hey David, your team looks solid man. I have to be honest and say I'm not sold on the Christensen/Rayner picks, there is a hefty amount of coin invested in those two and I feel as though that coin would be better distributed elsewhere. If you are super-keen to have them in your line up, I would recommend only picking one of them.

Good luck! ⛄️

joe

Christensen's averages: 66, 80, 93, 91, 70 (injury interrupted)

That's worth the risk in a season with no guaranteed forward rookies.

Shake_n_Bake_

Just quickly is Oliver a concern 🤔

DacZawson

If he lines up Sunday then it should be fine, I doubt they risk a half fit young player in the first game of the season

Lekdog

Been my lock all year, am I concerned? Slightly…fair to say we should have a backup plan for a late out situation

Ethan

THOUGHTS COMMUNITY ?
Good luck everyone this year!

Defenders-
Laird, Savage, Lloyd (Finlayson)
Naughton, O’Shea, Murray (Doedee)

Midfielders-
Mitchell, Martin, Zorko, Fyfe
Parker, Brayshaw, LDU, Banfield
(Kelly, Holman, Garlett)

Rucks-
Martin, Gawn
(Olango)

Forwards-
Franklin, Heeney, Greene (Fritsch)
Smith, Christensen, Stephenson (keefe)

Lekdog

Only slight change for me would be LDU to Brodie

Sc_Wow

Stephenson also might score the best for his price. Start fritz

GoDoggies

I'm panicking so much it's to close to many questions

DEFS- Laird, Tuohy, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Murphy, Keeffe)

MIDS- Danger, Mitchell Kelly Fyfe Parker Cripps Brayshaw (freo) banfield (Kelly, Holman barry)

RUCKS- Ryder Gawn (Cameron)

FWDS – Heeney, Mclean, Smith, Petracca Sicily Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

Three main concerns, Danger, Ryder and Sicily
I'm willing to cop the Danger Round 1 donut and the Ryder round 10 donut.
but I'm considering downgrading Ryder to Nank, I could really use that cash to clean up the team
Finally Sicily is he honestly worth the hype or is he to risky
Sides going to change once rookies are named, with some downgrades and upgrades to rooks and premiums

So should i downgrade Ryder for cash to clean up the team

Should i keep Sicily or is he not good enough/worth it should i downgrade him to dunkley or another mid pricer in either fwd or def and use the cash to clean up the team aswell

And some insight on danger and his return
Thanks for any feedback

Lekdog

Sicily will out perform his price but will have weeks where he goes missing, better than any of those other 400K (and under) forward fwds imo

I like the side

DacZawson

Personally I think you should strengthen your defence, so if downgrading Ryder or Sicily allows you to upgrade a rookie to a premo in defence then I'd do it.

GoDoggies

I have $300 the downgrading of one of ryder or Sicily would give me enough for like Riley Bonner, Byrne, Corey Ellis, Brayshaw (Melbourne) a player for around 200-300k is it worth it?
Say Ryder to Nank and then like Keeffe up to Bonner or Ellis
??
Lek your a Carlton man, what are your thoughts on Byrne is he worth it 230k odd defender worth it?
Or do I downgrade Ryder to Lycett and have a ton of cash to play with??

Bec

Hi community

This is my second season of supercoach and I have been asked to join my husbands league which he plays with his mates – i’m sure they think they will get an easy win against me

So I have done some research and came across this site and couldn’t believe how helpful the articles and comments have been

Can I please get some feedback on my team so I can hopefully beat my husband!

Laird, Hibberd, Mills, Naughton, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Keeffe

Dangerfield, Martin, Zorko, M.Crouch, Fyfe, A.Brayshaw, Brodie, Kelly, Banfield, Barry, Holman

Kreuzer, Gawn, Cameron

Heeney, Billing’s, D.Smith, Petracca, Christensen, Frisch, Langdon, Ryan

DacZawson

Pretty good looking side, how much cash do you have left in the bank?

Derek

Good team. Should go good. You will have a few problems in round 14 having a lot of your guns not playing, but that is just one week you might just take a loss.

Good luck

Shake_n_Bake_

Nice structure, l like it. But like Derek said definitely rd 14 is a problem.

Crime Stoppers

GONE MISSING = ROOKIE CHEAT SHEET, please call if found

Lekdog

Jump on SC and sort by ownership, that'll give you most of your rookies 🙂

Sam

Nerves are getting real community! Let me know your thoughts.

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Mirra)

MID: Dangerfield, Martin, Mitchell, Crouch, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Brodie, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman)

RUC: Martin, Gawn (Cameron)

FWD: Heeney, Greene, Billings, Bell, Christensen, Fritsch (Ryan, Giles-Langdon)

Cheers!

DacZawson

I think you gotta pick one of Bell or Christensen, rather than both

DacZawson

Bell higher potential but Christensen might have a bit more job security

Sam

Why do you say that? Both seem underpriced with good JS to me. I only have 20k in the bank so wouldn't be able to upgrade either and both would be better than downgrading to a rookie (wouldn't know what to do with the 150k then anyway)

DacZawson

If you're keen on both then by all means go ahead, but I can see them both playing a half-forward role once Zorko and Beams play together, so don't believe both can rotate as a relief midfielder. So while both may score slightly better than a rookie as pure half forwards, I don't see the 150k extra cash as being worth a few extra points.

Interested to see what other people think though.

Dean

DacZawson its a really toughy year in the forward line this season and whats more concerning is almost every year the "Premo" forwards under preform, it happens year after year and the same can be said in defence.

That being said the vast majority of mid priced players fail every season irespective of their positions.
However with the lack of rookie depth in our forward lines this season I dont see it being an issue having players such as Christensen & Bell if a person feels its right.

I personally have Sicily and Christensen in my side, if history is anything to go by, there is every chance that Sicily could end up averaging less then Bell. It really is a personal thing, however EVERYONE needs to be aware of mid-priced madness and I have seen a TON of people on here who have been playing the game for years classing mid priced players as premiums and OR keepers.
This should NEVER be done EVER because chances are you will get dissapointed. Prepare yourself for the worst and if things work out for the better then its a HUGE bonus.

I'm sh** scared about having Sicily in my forward line but its something I'm happy to try out.
The other option im considering is going with Cyril Rioli & Christenson which I may very well go back to, due to the $100k price discrepancy between Sicily and Cyril Rioli in all honesty.
Rioli has averaged 90+ since 2010 only last year his average dropped dramatically to 64 but then again he only played 7 games last season.

DunedainRangers

Hi guys,

this is my current team, please let me know what you think.

Def: Laird, Hibberd, savage, Naughton, Dodee, Murray, (Finlayson, Mirra (Loophole))

Mid: Danger, Dustin, JKelly, Fyfe, Cripps, Armitage, Brayshaw (Freo) Banfield, ( Kelly, Barry, Holman)

Please let me know what you think.

Cheers

BloodyFranklin

Hey DR, I really like your line-up. If you are happy with it, I'd run with it. I don't have any Saints players personally, they either burn me when I do pick them or I get burnt because I didn't pick them. So I tend to stay away from them because it scares me.

Good luck! 🍀

DunedainRangers

thanks man, yes I do agree there very flammable, but so tempting

BloodyFranklin

Flammable, but tempting…

… Like lighting farts on fire?! 🤣

🌬🔥

Gibbs

Thoughts on my team? Cheers got 41.8 K left over
Gone for a strong forward line due to lack of rookies

Def- Laird, J. Mcgovern, L. Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murrat, ( Finlayson, L. Murphy)
Mid- Danger, Titch, Z, Merret, Fyfe, Parker, A.Brayshaw, Brodie, Holman, (Banfield, Kelly, Barry)
Ruck- Ryder, Gawn ( Olango)
Fwd- Heeny, Walters, Mclean, D. SMith, J. Scicily, L.Ryan ( Langdon , Fritsch

Randomcliche2

One of the more pure guns and rookies team going around. I'm running 9 mid pricers, needless to say we only share 5 players over 250k. If all your rookies are named consider Scicily to Petracca. I've got both, but one is going to go to to tribunal at some point you'd think.

suhdagel

morning morning morning as always good to see everyone on the grind to finalising their teams, would love to hear what you blokes think.

DEF: Laird, hibberd, savage, murray, doedee, finlayson (stoddarrd, murphy)

MID: dangerfield, mitchell, oliver(or zorko or kelly), fyfe, cripps, brayshaw, banfield, hollman ( kelly, worpel, barry)

RUC: gawn, nank (cameron)

FWD: heeney, billings, mclean, smith, petracca, fritsch ( keeffe, ryan)

42,800k left

i have gone very deep in fwd which i worry about because these breakout players need to perform. what do u reckon? any ides maybe downgrade to a rookie? what rookie?
should i change my mid rookies and maybe put sicily down back instead of one of the mid pricers down forward.
any advice would be great cheers.

Dean

I like it mate. Also agree Re: Oliver, Zorko or Kelly its basically flip a coin for these players.

Randomcliche2

Oliver is my pick of the three as well. Gawn loves hitting it down his throat.

Gingging

Tips on any changes I should make??

Defenders: laird, Hibberd, savage, coffield, naughton, murray. (Finlayson, doedee)

Midfielders: danger, Martin, Mitchell, Fyfe, coniglio, armitage, Brayshaw, kelly. (Banfield, Barry, holman)

Rucks: gawn, nankervis. (Cameron)

Forwards: heeney, Greene, smith, Rayner, Stephenson, fogarty. (Ryan, fritsch)

Dean

@Gingging – Decent side but you are making a huge mistake by having both Coffield & Finlayson in defence because both these players are MID/DEFENDERS.

Swap Coffield with L Murphy in defence and then swap Brayshaw to Coffield and this will then allow you to swing Coffield & Finlayson from Midfield to Defence and vice versa and while doing this change you will pocket yourself an extra $95k

I don't like the idea of having high priced rookies, any more then 2 high priced rookies is a waste and you have 4 in your side which is crazy as you have Coffield, Naughton, Brayshaw & Fogarty.

Keep in mind almost all cheaper rookies will generate you more cash then the more expensive rookies.
The only two high priced rookies I would consider keeping providing they are selected for round 1 are Naughton & Coffield mate.
If however you are still adament on keeping all your high priced rookies then thats fine, just get rid of Banfield and bring in Coffield in order to allow you to take full advantage of Coffield & Finlayson's DPP (Duel Position Players)

Good luck mate.

Randomcliche2

Keep A Brayshaw. 🙂 you can open up the dpp swing set later. Cheers.

JDP

Can’t decide between Sicily Mills or McGrath as D3

Currently have Sicily but the other 2 may get midfield time and get more points

Any thoughts appreciated

Randomcliche2

One will get suspended I'd bet. I don't like any of those 3 at D3. Sicily in forwards if you must have him…I do though. Flip a coin on the others. I've read that Hanners might play wing this year so there could be more mid minutes. McGrath should get better as well.

Lekdog

Can someone tell me how to pick a side? I have a reveal tomorrow but hate everything about my team

Holty

Just pick Cripps and Kruezer Lek. Everything else should just fall into place.

Lekdog

They're already in haha

Sc_Wow

Intelligent auto select does a pretty good job

Lekdog

This is the team it gave me…

DEF: Simpson, O'Shea, Bonner, Naughton, Mirra, Finlayson (Yeo, Seedsman)

MID: Dow, Garlett, Cripps, Higgins (Richmond), Petracca, D.Martin, Coniglio, Caddy (Wingard, Stephenson, Armitage)

RUC: Kreuzer, Simpson, (Cox)

FWD: Rioli, Walters, Daniher, Fogarty, Christensen, Smith (Franklin, Giles-Langdon)

$72K in bank

Sc_Wow

Krussse and Crippa in that team, so its looking pretty good.

Franklin and Yeo are solid bench cover.

The Ranger

Stick the C on Garlett and ya done Lek.

Dermin8r

Which Rioli? There are 3 and they are all forwards. 🙂
(I've got all of them in my AFL Dream team just as a cheeky gimmick, reckon I should pop Long into my MID)

Nerd Balls

Would love everyone or anyones input on the line mup im currently running:

Feel free to tear it to shreads:

DEF: Laird, Hibbered, Savage, Doedee, Murry, Finlaysion (Keeffe, Grathwaite)

MID: Danger, Dusty, Twitch, J Kelly, M crouch, Fyfe, A.brayshaw, T Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

RUC: Gawn, Lycett

FWD: Heeney, Walters, D smith, Sicily, Fritch, L ryan (Waterman, Giles-Langdon)

Cheers fellas

Gingging

Do you think lycett over Nic Nat?

Nerd Balls

Really just looking for a cash grab and upgrade arouns the byes. Surely he can average 80. any better options aroun dhis price?

Derek

NicNat is not as cheap as I thought he would be

BadgerHoney7

Nic Nat is playing, and will be number 1 ruck in that side, so ultimately Nic Nat

Holty

I think Lycett was mainly mentioned as a option through the preseason as Nic Nat maybe missing early. Now some reports saying he might be ready r1, im not sure he is a great pick anymore. Ur backs and mids look solid. Forward line i believe u should rethink. Its a tough line to fill this year so dont make it tougher. Selecting 3 midpricers that u are hoping will all take the next step is wishful thinking. U will be needing to make a lot of corrective trades and potentially u will run out of trades come seasons end.

neil demons delight

Disagree Hotly The only other way would be prems and rookies. I would think of the prems Buddy is a lock but too dear Heeney is not much better than 3 midpricers and Billings un reliable then you have your expensive rookies/ etc BELL CHRISTIANSEN RAYNER STEPHENSON. All 4 have better J S than your rubbish rookies led by Fritsch but are a risk I would not take a chance with ANY FORWARD ROOKIES two of Heeney/billings/ buddy and 4 midpricers I would even go further and have the flog Sicily linked to Brander as a 7th forward trusting only Fritsch even that is a HUGE RISK NO ONFIELD FORWARD ROOKIES FOR ME

BadgerHoney7

· 4 hours ago

Money in bank: 2,800

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Luke Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murray — Finlayson Mihocek

Questions: Luke Ryan is someone I'm not sold on atm due to hes had one season in the game and not one that I quite trust at the moment. Was thinking Sav but not too sure anymore.

MID: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, JOM, Brayshaw, Brodie — Kelly, Banfield, Holman

Questions: I'm quite set at the moment on this midfield and think its probably not going to change from here on out. Brodie is probably my only question just seeing whether I will benefit more from downgrading him to Barry and still probably get the same scoring output.

RUCK: Gawn, NicNat — Olango

Questions: Bunga said Nic Nat will play Round 1, and hes scoring output in my opinion is too hard to avoid even if it takes him a couple of Rounds to warm up.

FWD: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Bell, Fritsch — Garlett, Liam Ryan

Questions: Only the FWD rookies just because of the fact that they're so light this year, Bell downgraded to Christensen banks me 30k but ultimately it is who scores more and Bell plays much more up the ground then Christensen does.

How to get a premo def for Luke Ryan: Brodie – Barry, Bell – Christensen, banks me 100k and allows me to get someone like Simpson or something, don't know if its worth it tho.

Feedback greatly appreciated community!

BadgerHoney7

Or going Sicily to defense then Tracca down forward

Holty

One more spot in this league. 833476

CalebCripps922

Struggling with R2 currently have Nank he looks good but i'm worried I've been sucked into JLT hype don't have much money to go up to someone but could try any help appreciated!

BadgerHoney7

Its a trap

FearTheBeard

Fella's can I get some overall thoughts on the current squad bloody sick of playing with it 😉

Laird, Savage, Ryan, Doedee (if not named can upgrade to Naughton/O'Shea), Murray, Finlayson (Murphy, Mihocek)

Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Banfield, Holman (Garlett, Kelly, Barry)

Kreuz, Gawn (Cameron)

Buddy, Billings, Walters, Smith, Tracca, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

My only real question is should I be cutting 2 rookies down to not playing cheapies e.g Cameron & Barry/Ryan to 102k players so I can upgrade Coniglio to Oliver?

My logic is at present let Coniglio go up in cash, let the rookies fatten up and let Oliver clear my head on his knee and pull the trigger then?

Otherwise I could break my heart and cut Dusty out with Congilio & jump on Oliver & Kelly?

Coz311

Really like the team if you are going for league win. If going for rank there’s too many round 14 bye players IMO. F1 to F3 and D1 to D3 on that bye plus Danger, Dusty and Fyfe. Dusty to Kelly would help that and a few other changes might be necessary across lines.

Fearthebeard

Yep just gunning for league wins mate lol

Whitey

I see nearly all side running only two rookies on field in the midfield. Am I stupid to be running 3? It means I am only running 1 in the forwards and have Sicily at F5.

Cheers in advance.

DacZawson

No personally I see three as the way to go

Derek

have faith the SuperCoach Gods will provide us forward rookies.

It is like a few years ago when we had no defence rookies and people were jumping out of windows, but Jock said to us, “don’t be afraid, they will come”.

And just as the season started, two tiny little specks of Hope came forth in the form of Oxley and McIntosh just as Jock had predicted.

Have faith community.

(I’m looking at you Mr Higgins, Ahern, Spargo, Wilson, WRioli, Venables, Guelfi & Naish)

Lekdog

Never forget

BrownlowBoy

Settled on your team yet Derek?

Da Boysh

Hi All!! I have some unusual decisions but still enough of the good stuff was wanting some opinions – pending some rookies not being announced

DEF:
Hurley, Shaw, Sicily, Brayshaw Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Murphy)

MID:
Martin, Merrett Mitchell, Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Finlayson, Banfield (Kerry, Barry, Holman)

RUC
Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

FWD
Heeney, Wingard, Smith, Petracca, Keefe, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

Thanks community

Lekdog

Wingard said in an interview that he's likely to play majority forward, turned me off him

Love the Hurley pick

Solid side with some nice risks

Da Boysh

Thanks Lek! Didn't realise that about Chad I will bring someone else in… but who is the question.

Loving the podcast guys

Sc_Wow

Greene could go well if he stays out of trouble, good early draw too

Sc_Wow

Solid league side, don't see it being competitive in overall

Da Boysh

Thanks, any easy fixes you think or the whole side is just not really suited?

Sc_Wow

I think it will be really hard to be competitive without danger, looking like he will miss one game at most.
It will be such a hard task to bring him in once his is playing and you're going to miss out on his early round points, and cost your self some trades in the process.
Only fwd rookie I'm banking on is Fritz, Keefe will be a borderline selection as will Garlett, and I don't like to scoring potential of Ryan enough to have him on field. I've had to go 5 deep in the fwd line, and rely on the more secure backline rookies.
Cameron won't play much, and won't make too much money, I personally like the loophole option for r3 and saving myself 20k

Derek

Who are your rucks Trev?

Sc_Wow

No sure if you're referring to me as you've called me Trev a few times.
Im going with Kruuuse and Gawn
-Not Trev

neil demons delight

I totally agree trev sorry WOW BUT even Fritz is risky at F 6 let alone Garlett Ryan Rioli the GWS kid or KEEFE unless you have him linked to SICILY (DEF) The Defensive rookies will make coin.
LOCKED GAWN and KREUZ /olango cheers N D D

Browncow

Thanks Rusty?????

Da Boysh

thanks heaps for the feedback definitely agree with R3 I think I will do that, i am considering upgrading Garlett to a mid price FWD I have just enough cash for someone around the 300k mark

Derek

LEK what are your thoughts on SPS has DPP but awkward price of $371k.

Cheaper than Petracca and Devon.

Thoughts?

Lekdog

Only played a half of JLT, banking on a big breakout…I think he'll be relevant just not this year

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Derek.
Not sure what happened to SC Addict and a couple of others, no one knows but this has created a couple of spots in the happy place league.
If you want to join and go head to head with the boyz the league code is:

123493.

Lets get ready to rumble.

TheGreatBozza

I've restructured my team again for a more healthy bye plan. Ditching Bonner for a rook, to allow me to go Parker up to Titchell:

DEF: Laird, Savage, Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Keefe, Finlayson)
MID: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Banfield (Barry, Holman, Kelly)
R: Gawn, Grundy/Ryder/Nank [undecided] (Lavender)
F: Walters, McLean, Smith, Sicilty, Christensen, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

As I said it gives me a solid by spread. Other options I'm looking at is Titch down to Whitfield or Parker, freeing up cash to move Sicilly to DEF (for Ryan), and get a Billings/Greene. Although TBH I think Titchell & Luke Ryan combo would outscore a Parker & Greene combo. Thoughts?

Charles

Should I go with danger and fritsch or dusty and Christensen??

Sc_Wow

If you want to be competitive in overall standings danger is a must

Mystic Mac

Call me crazy but I'm going with Neale over Fyfe to start this year. I'd love them both but there's something about 4 dockers in the guts that doesn't sit well with me. Anyone else running with Neale?

neil demons delight

ThiNk I will agree with you you're CRAZY . DANGER TICH DUSTY and fyfe are must haves as quick as possible KELLY OLIVER ZERRETT and M.CROUCH make up the rest BUT points scored between 8 and 12 i.e. crouch and bont/neale is minimal

Sc_Wow

Crazy

Lekdog

I I think the Billings move will net you basically the same points but lock in a top 6 forward, I lean slightly towards that move

Walz

To help you with selecting that on-field "0" for your loophole, below is the number of times each team plays in the end of the round (last 3 games of a normal round, last 2 games of a Bye round). More late games the "0" plays = better loophole options
West Coast Eagles 12
Melbourne 11
Fremantle 10
North Melbourne 10
Collingwood 8
Hawthorn 8
Western Bulldogs 8
Essendon 7
Richmond 7
Brisbane 6
Carlton 6
Geelong 6
Adelaide 5
Greater Western Sydney 5
Port Adelaide 5
Sydney 4
Gold Coast 3
St Kilda 3

Marcus

Great work.
Looks like should go for cheapest DPP from WC, Melb, Freo, or Norf.

MID: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Oliver, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Brayshaw, T. Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)
RUC: Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Rayner, Fritsch (Keeffe, Ryan)

All rookies obviously dependent on who’s named.

DacZawson

Regardless of rookies named I don't think Rayner is anywhere near worth 200k. I'd downgrade Coniglio or another mid down to a rookie and then Rayner to a premo forward

TrillieFarley

Thanks Dac. I’m working on moving some things around to turn Rayner into Christensen.

Think I might throw Sicily back and turn Savage into Petracca. Then again, I’m sure I will have 100 different team structures switched around between now and lock out lol

dom

Great team you piece of shiit.

GSal

What do you guys think
D – Laird, Simpson, Hurn, Stratton, C.Ellis, Finlayson (Murray,Doedee)
M – Mitchell, Kelly, M.Crouch, Fyfe, Libba, Robinson, Jager, Dow, (A.Brayshaw, T.Kelly, Holman)
R – Gwan, Lycett (Cameron)
F – Heeney, Sicily, Darling, Day, Lloyd, Rayner (Venables, Fritsch)
$121k in kitty

DacZawson

I wanna be constructive but get rid of Stratton, Ellis, Dow, Lycett, Darling, Day, Lloyd and Rayner, then move Mitch Robinson to the forwards. Also Andrew Brayshaw needs to be on field

Derek

gosh…..

Northernsoul74

Pies confirm Murray and Stephenson will debut.

INPieman

Murray absolute lock. Not sure about Stephenson

Michael

Shuey and Titchell or Parker and Zorko

Sc_Wow

The one that doesn't have Shuey in it

BrownlowBoy

Kreuzer, Bont, Armo
VS.
Nank, Oliver, Libba/Cogs

Also who is better pick Liberatore or Coniglio?

Tom

2nd option

Nathan

And I'd say Coniglio because of libbas inconsistency

Daniel

Laird, Simpson, Lloyd, Naughton, Murray, Doedee
( finalayson, Mirra)

Martin, Mitchell, Crouch, Fyfe, Parker, Brayshaw, Brodie, Banfield (Holman, Barry, Kelly)

Martin, Gawn
(Olango)

Heeney, Greene, Billings, Smith, Christensen, Stephenson
(Keefe, Fritsch)

Thought guys very appreciated quite new to SuperCoach

Tyruddanaut

Martins scoring comes almost solely from ruck positioning so if Archie Smith is named, then back off

Tyruddanaut

Stefan by the way

Rivo

Getting nervous as hell. Team version 8265…

D: Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Keefe, Murphy);
M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Barry (Kelly, Holman, Garlett);
R: Martin, Gawn (Cameron/Olango);
F: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Petracca, Sicily, Fogarty (Fritsch, Ryan).

Questions:

Do I change Garlett to Banfield (lose Swing with Fwd)?
Do I change Cameron to Olango for the captain loop?

BloodyFranklin

Yes on Garlett to Banfield. 👌

Your call on the rucks. 😶

BrownlowBoy

Thoughts on my team please community. Any feedback is very much appreciated.

Laird, Hibberd, McGovern, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Mihocek
Dangerfield, Mitchell, Kelly, Oliver, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Brodie, Banfield, Kelly, Ahern, Holman
Gawn, Kreuzer, Olango
Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Fritisch, Langdon, Garlett, Ryan

11k remaining.

Tyruddanaut

Love your team, but have some small issues with some players.

Bonner:
Too expensive for a cash cow, too cheap for a keeper, doesn’t score enough to be a combination

Oliver:
Young, inexperienced, but could explode and get 120, too uncertain as a keeper for me

Kreuzer:
Bloody good, but expensive. You have to back him in to average 110 plus

Sicily:
Flogometer: 99.99%

Ahern:
Bad JS bad scoring potential

BrownlowBoy

Thanks mate, much appreciated!

Coz311

Disagree with Oliver you can lock him in. Also only question mark on Kreuzer is his health so if you trust him to stay on the park pick with confidence.

Heg

KSinny

I'd say downgrade either Sicily or Savage to someone like Naughton or O'shea to free up some cash and upgrade libba to a Premo.

WoW_Trevor

O'Shea wont be named

GAZ

Def – Laird, L Ryan, Hibberd (Melb), Naughton, Keefe , Doedee (Murray, Finslayson)

bob

PLEASE HELP

DEF: Tuohy, Savage, Sicily, Naughton, Murray, O'Conner (Deodee, Finlayson)
MID: Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Fyfe, Cripps, A. Brayshaw, Banfield, Holman (Constable, Kelly, Barry)
RUC: Kreuzer, Gawn (Olango)
FWD: Billings, Walters, Mclean, D.Smith, L.Taylor, Bell (Fritsch, Miers)
55k spare

I think i have gone deep in FWD because rookies there are all shit. I would like to have more than 55k spare just incase any of my picks do badly in the first 2 weeks – so then i can upgrade them.
I dont have Laird because i believe he will drop 50k in the first 8 weeks.
I think all of the onfield rookies i have exposed should average 60+ pts, which i think is acceptable.

Crank

Thoughts on my team? Cheers got 41.8 K left over
Gone for a strong forward line due to lack of rookies

Def- Laird, J. Mcgovern, L. Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murrat, ( Finlayson, L. Murphy)

Mid- Danger, Titch, Z, Merret, Fyfe, Parker, A.Brayshaw, Brodie, Holman, (Banfield, Kelly, Barry)

Ruck- Ryder, Gawn ( Olango)

Fwd- Heeny, Walters, Mclean, D. SMith, J. Scicily, L.Ryan ( Langdon , Fritsch)

Steve

Hey guys, any thoughts on the below two options?

Option 1:
Josh Kelly
Forward rookie
27k left

Option 2:
Coniglio
Christensen
53k left

Option 1 means I have to field two forward rookies, while Option 2 means I only field one.

Cheers

Starkingdom

Kelly has to be your priority out of those 2 options. How many rookies will you have on field if you picked option 1?

Steve

4 down back, 2 mids, 2 forwards

Thoughts?

Starkingdom

Maybe you need to select option 2 so you have 7 on field. I think 8 is too many, you might fall behind really quick. i have 6 first year players on field and Bonner.

Steve

Cheers!

John

Jack Billings or Devon Smith

Starkingdom

Billings for me. Smith will be ok early while full of steam then he'll fade whereas Jack is ready to go to another level.

Derek

big price difference though, not really a like for like compare

Mick

Both

KingWinter7

Def- Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (L.Murphy, Mihocek)

Mid- Danger, Dusty, Titch, M.Crouch, Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman)

Ruc- Kreuzer, Gawn (Cameron)

Fwd- Heeney, Billings, Walters, D.Smith, Keefe, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

113.8k left over

4 on field rookies in defence or 3 in the mids ???
Originally had Hurley but traded him for a rookie in order to upgrade to Coniglio in the mids
If Danger needs to be traded he turns into Kelly and Coniglio is potentially upgraded to him in a few rounds
Cheers

Derek

round 14 will be a challenge

Tyruddanaut

Thank god Higgos back
