Round 21 SuperCoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on

How bloody good is footy?!

Round 20 is in the can and what a magnificent can it was.

Five of the games were all decided by 4 points or less which was a record amount for a single round. Then Carlton came along on Sunday and ruined it (not a record, Carlton are known to ruin things)

Round 20 also saw the beginning of SuperCoach finals and tales of triumph and woe hit Twitter on Sunday night. Popular Panic Room roasting target and podcast enthusiast, PatchtotheMax, got one up over our Mad Irishman and hoo boy, he was humble about it

Then there was Community member Cam, who found out the hard way that Buddy can and will do whatever he wants at any given time.

Round 21 has arrived with it’s own set of problems and where there’s a problem a wild Lek and Patch will appear to solve it in their weekly podcast. South Australian royalty, Barron von Crow, looks at some South Australian draft royalty in this weeks Around the Grounds. If you’re playing this week you’ll need to nail your captain choice to get any further, Patch looks at some options over here, and Damo’s cheat sheet juggernaut rolls on this week.

As a special gift to the Community, dead set legend Michael Chamberlin (of Junktime Footy podcast fame) has joined Lek and Patch for a special podcast where they shoot the breeze on all things sport (and a bit of SuperCoach too). Cheers, Chambo!

THE NEWS

Alright, bringing back a meme from 8 years ago to describe this round.

Let’s get into it…

St. Kilda’s already questionable uh… “ruck department” took a further blow during the week with Tom Hickey ruled out. Lewis Pierce (RUC – 125.3k) makes his season debut. Patch’s boy, Rowan “my boat” Marshall is back along with Ben Long and Bailey Rice. Ben Paton (DEF – 117.3k) will make his debut. Nick Coffield and Hunter Clark are amongst the outs. No changes for the Dons.

Saturday see’s Hawthorn’s Conor Nash replace WhiteX for the first game of the day. Ryan Abbott is one of five outs for the Cats, making way for the returning Rhys Stanley. Mark O’Connor will play his first game since round 2. Tom Stewart is another significant returnee for the Cats. Toby Nankervis is OUT for the game against the Suns, but they will be at almost full strength with the returning Jack Graham, Dion Prestia, and Bachar Houli. The Suns have made six changes themselves, recalling captain Steven May, David Swallow, and Jarryd Lyons. Sam Powell-Pepper is the big name out for Port. Dom Sheed is replacing Andrew Gaff at the Eagles. Jordan de Goey is straight back in for the Pies as the prepare to face the Lions at Etihad. Tom Cutler returns for Brisbane in the place of Ryan Bastinac. Toby Greene is injured again at the Giants; Brett Deledio and Dawson Simpson join him on the injury list. Tim Taranto and Dylan Shiel will return. The Crows have shuffled the magnets a bit, Riley Knight, who may have given some attention to one of the Giants’ gun mids, is out injured.   

North have named Shaun Higgins and LDU on Sunday for their game against the Dogs, who have named Tim English on an extended bench and a possible debut for Callum Porter (MID – 117.3k). Freo have named Sam Switkowski (FWD – 117.3k) on an extended bench in one of seven new names. Carlton have given themselves a chance by dropping Cam O’Shea. Kruuuuuuze has been named on an extended bench. There’s only one confirmed out for the last game of the week between Melbourne and Sydney, and that’s Joel Smith. Hanners is chance to return for the match.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

The House of full to the brim in a week that doesn’t really matter for rookie downgrades. Nonetheless, there’s plenty of options that can offer you some downgrade cash if you’re desperate.

These guys come with a free frogurt (that’s good!)

Jack Madgen – MID – 66 last week

Aiden Bonar – MID / FWD – 82 last week

Nathan Freeman – 64 last week

Brandon Starcevich – MID / FWD – 55 last week

-41 – Kane Farrell*

-21 – Fergus Greene*

-17 – Alex Morgan*

-12 – Will Walker*

These premiums contain potassium benzoate (that’s bad!)

173 – Stef Martin

165 – Jeremy Howe

160 – Goldmember

147 – Rory Laird

146 – Tom Mitchell

144 – Jayden Short

140 – Tomahawk

SMMOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

No more needs to be said on the Andrew Gaff debacle, if you own him in SuperCoach he needs to be replaced. You’ve more than likely got a FWD / MID floating around that you can swap into the midfield as well.

If looking at a straight mid for mid swap and have 21k in the bank, Jack Redden will swallow up some of Gaff’s points despite being a different type of midfielder. He’s been on bloody fire lately, flashing a huge ceiling of 137 and 154 (twice). He comes up against Port this week, a team he scored 134 against back in round 7.

If you’re chasing a forward, Josh Dunkley has shifted into the midfield of late and pumped out scores of 105 (29 touches), 147 (27), and 132 (33). He faces North and Carlton under the roof over the next fortnight before the Tiges in the SuperCoach grand final.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

Geelong and Hawthorn have played out some absolute crackers over the years and both teams seem to lift for this matchup. Our mates over at Fantasy Insider have had a look at the numbers and given us this ideal lineup:

My take:

RUCK

Rhys Stanley returns this week Geelong and was in pretty good form before his injury. His price is somewhat prohibitive as Hawthorn are only giving up on average 76DS to opposite rucks since round 15. Geelong are the best in the business at limiting opposition key forwards so that puts a line through Rough for mine.

That leaves Jono Ceglar. His past 3 has seen him average 85 and Geelong give up, on average, 92DS to opposition rucks.

DEF

Not a lot happening in defence. Both teams have been superb in locking down opposition defenders over the past month so I’m looking down the list to try and save some cash. Ben Stratton (8.5k) had 93DS and 11 intercepts v Essendon. He averages 10.6 of them over the past 3 games. Lachie Henderson is slowly getting back into it, he scored 106 last time out against the Hawks. While I’m not expecting that kind of return, he’s low risk option at 6.4k

Of the pricier targets, Shaun Burgoyne doesn’t mind playing against the Cats. He’s been extremely consistent over the past month, scoring between 78 and 93.

FWDS

Helllllo midfielder forwards against Hawthorn! They’re giving up the second most fantasy points to the position over the past month and Geelong have a bunch of options. Gaz averages a lazy 143DS over his past 5 against the Hawks, Danger 120DS, and Sam Menegola hasn’t dropped below 82DS since May. May!

If you’re looking to spend down a bit, Dan Menzel is my pick. He loves to sneak out the back and snag a cheap goal. He’s scored 101DS (4 goals) and 90DS (3 goals) in his past two against the Hawks

MIDS

Fire (up) the Worpedo! James Worpel’s price hasn’t quite caught up to his little purple patch. The same can be said of Harry Morrison. Tim Kelly is quickly becoming my second favourite opposition player to watch (Love you Fyfey!). His 57 against Brisbane two weeks ago has kept his price down to 12.9k, his 5 games around that score saw him average 109.8. Scott Selwood is another who doesn’t mind this matchup. His floor always appeals to me because of his love of a cuddle and I expect this to be a hot game of footy.

If you’ve followed me so far you’ll have the cash to splash to a certain guy by the name of Tom Mitchell. Many will blanch at his 21k price tag but he’s just too hard to fade at the moment. On a single game slate he’ll be the top scorer against a team that isn’t known to apply a heavy tag. The man scored 146DS last week against Essendon which are the best team in the comp at limiting opposition midfielders.

My lineup:

That’s it for this week, Community. For those in prelims enjoy the week off while the rest of us deal with do or die semi final games.

Corza

This is my biggest Panic week yet, got a number of holes any advice community? I have 4 Trades Left
62K In the Bank
Yeo, Lloyd, Laird, Simspon, Hurley, Savage (Lienert, Ridley)

T.Mitchell, Cripps, Dangerfield, J.Kelly, Gaff, Macrae, Coniglio (Phillips, Giro, Dawson)

Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

D.Smith, Heeney, R.Gray, McLean, Walters, Ahern (Sicily, Brown)

SC_Kev7

G'day Corza. If you're facing knock out semi finals this week trading Nank should be top priority as you don't have cover. Your second move I'd look at trading Gaff as replacing him with a mid will net you more points than replacing Savage will

Corza

I’m in two preliminary finals not fussed about rank or the semi this week just want to set myself up nicely for the PreLim

Lekdog

Field Leinert, replace Gaff and Nank

Cobee Bear

Gaff to Redden (POD with 5 round avg of 124) and Nank to Goldy/Martin if you can afford, otherwise you might need to settle for Stanley.

dontblushbaby

After a quick look, I’d go Nank – Goldy, Gaff – Pendles , should get within what $ you have, good luck

Gazza

Hey community, facing elimination this week and am in need of suggestions! 4 trades left and $143K in the bank.
Yeo, Laird, Simpson, Hurn, Crisp, Ryan (Murphy, Lynch)

Mitchell, Cripps, Dangerfield, Oliver, Merrett, Macrae, Zorko, Martin (Giro, Coffield, Barry)

Gawn, Goldstein (Olango)

Smith, Westhoff, Gray, Heaney, McLean, De Goey (Ahern, Battle)

Any suggestions would be appreciated,
Thanks

The Ranger

Aaaahhh! I’m panicking!!!
Off to Europe for 3wks and it’s SC Finals!!

Hawks

That's just poor planning

Russty_

Haha, have a great time Ranger!…set and forget your captain mate and no fancy loopholing 🙂

Oliver

Need some advice community. 2 trade left, about 100k in the bank and playing this week.

I'm looking at trading out JJK this week. Which is the best option.
1. Menegola. Which gives me the option of putting McLean, Buddy or Billings at F7.
2. Swing McDonald forward and bring in a defender, maybe Hurley
3. Swing Ahern forward to F7, swing Murphy into the mids and then bring in a defender and stick witherden as D7 (I currently don't have any bench coverage down back).

On a related note. If I still have Fyfe, would it be better to loop Ahern with Parker if I keep Ahern in the mids. Or would it be better to hold off and then look at trading Fyfe to someone like Neale if Parker spuds up?

John

Hey community, I need help with this Gaff trade. I’ve come to 3 options and I can’t decide who to get. Who out of Kelly, Macrae and Merrett?

Ja191

Macrae

John

Thanks, is there any reason you say Macrae over the others?

Ja191

Kelly averages 90.7 against top 5 sides and 149.2 against bottom 5 sides. Merrett prone to tag (although in good form) but macrae is a beast and his injury doesn’t seem to be bothering him, was the highest scorer be4 his injury could go massive next few rounds

BrownlowBoy

Is Goldy a good option?

Steeeve

Its gawn and grundy or kiss your season goodbye

Steve

My only potential loophole is Giro depending on weather he plays, so my VC & C are vital, just wondering what everyone is thinking, l'm looking at Mitchell , Kelly , Macrae as VC and Neale , Cripps as C , any advice would be great

Lazza

Mitchell into Cripps.. Cats don’t have a tagger of any note… they’ll cover Mitchell at stoppages like every other team, but that’s about it..
Kelly is a good alternative, but away to Adelaide and likely to have Greenwood tracking him..

Cobee Bear

Kelly always racks up solid numbers against the crws

Bobby

Best FWD option 440k and under excluding McLean, Franklin, Heeney and Gray who I already have. 1 of Darling, Acres, Mitch Robinson or Michael Walters? Please help community I’m stumped

Alex

Walters, will tear carlton apart.

Russty_

Good luck to Larry Lazza (Raw Tigers) and Scotty (Trigga) this week…do or die this week, bring it on!..woohoo

Lazza

Ditto, Russty ..

Lazza

Hey Russty, fortunately I had enough trades and cash to bring in Grundy for Nank… . made the difference.. The Kennedy (GWS) choice not so rewarding … but enough to get me across the line… sorry buddy, look forward to playing you again next year in The Rat Pack..
5 prelims ahead, 3 are cash leagues… 2 trades and $97.5k in the kitty.. will have to replace Walters, maybe Kelly, but I think her will play..

Enjoy the golf and real estate discovery… ..

Russty_

Hi Laz, well done mate and good luck for all your finals coming up, I'm still in with a shot in one for next week so all's not lost, Trigga smoked me this week too haha well done Trigs.

Ahmad rubas

everyone in my team is playing except for tim smith and olango which is surprising hopefully there is some late out carnage

Peter

Help, need advice.
I have 1 trade left and have Nankervis and gaff. Not sure who to trade of the two.

I am in 2 cash leagues and in prelim final next week and elim final this week in the other. Want to win at least one premiership.

Do I trade gaff for McRae and cop donut fron Nankervis this week. OR
Trade Nankervis and bring in grundy which and avoid a donut.

Decision will depend on how long Nankervis will be out. Is it only a 1 week injury?. I will most likely lose this weeks elim final if I cop the donut but win if I get in grundy.

If I trade nank for grundy I do have gaff bench cover in Giro, magden and spargo.

Have to consider next weeks prelim game also. Can’t afford a donut next week as next weeks game will be tougher

Feedback appreciated

BadgerHoney7

I feel like a noob right now but just would like to double check I have both Battle and Walters as Emergencies and have Tim Smith Captain – does this still mean I get Walters score

Russty_

Yeah mate..that'll work out for you.

Corza

Gaff To Oliver
Sicily To Menegola
Left with barely an money and 2 Trades Left
Or
Gaff To J.Selwood
Sicily To Westhoff
130K to upgrade Savage and Hurley in the last two rounds to Howe and A.Brayshaw

Harry

Hey guys! I need to trade Gaff and only can get anyone up to 535k. So far I've narrowed down to Jelwood/Crouch/Higgins/Duncan? Who would you guys pick? And also anyone else I havn't thought of?

Corey

Joel Selwood his curling can win you a big final

Mick

What has happened to Wow and 66? Did their season go bad? Haven't seen their know it all comments and negativity towards others on here lately.

Lazza

WoW probably lost interest… was playing only for rank and is now stuck in reverse gear … still top 400 though… pretty good..
I think 66 was banned … he lacked elegance and suffered from his multiple personalities..

SC_Wank_66Toss

same thing that happens to them every year. They pick a new site to troll and abuse everybody who doesn't burn 2 trades every week for early season rank. Then when it gets serious they have stuff all trades left and start going backwards. Still 2 weeks to go and both of them are getting donuts every week, they be very lucky if they finish in the top 1,000

Randomcliche2

I must say it's bloody nice around here

f××k foxtel

Anyone got links to watch the game today free online? cats v hawks game

Ja191

Try firstrowsports or vipbox

f××k foxtel

thanks Ja

Rupert_the_Dog

No but I'll bankroll your attack on the foxtel office. Actually I'll join you in kicking their unethical ripoff merchant heads in

Davo

Hi Community. Need to trade Gaff to either Macrae, Kelly, Crouch, Selwood or Neale. Which one guys? Thanks in advance. Cheers.

Cobee Bear

Macrae 🙂

Cobee Bear

See Ja191's comment below as to why.

Davo

Thanks Cobee

Guy

Hi community who should I trade gaff to out of Ward Duncan crouch or Selwood I only have 538k.

Derek

If that lot, Crouch is the one who will be the most consistent and has a good ceiling.

They play Carlton in SC GF week.

neil demons delight

Selwood for mine Guy. Coming home strong and Cats must win Wont get the tag

Shake_n_Bake_

Good luck in a couple of finals this weekend Neil.

neil demons delight

Cheers mate even money

fono

Panic time!
I've got 1 trade left and have both Gaff & Deledio.
No bench cover for Lids (is he a chance to come back this year?)
Gaff I can cover with Ahern.
With only $24,700 in the bank can only really afford Gunstan or thinking Taranto to replace Lids with which isn't ideal.
Thoughts?

Marcus

GWS said they will be cautious with Deledio, so cant see him coming back anytime soon
Bite bullet and trade to Gunston

fono

Cheers Marcus – fingers crossed!

Defying_Madness

Wouldn't be surprised if Roughy is a late out or is playing sore. Saw him running around very slowly around 8:30 this morning with some of the other injured boys

Defying_Madness

CONFIRMED OUT NOW

Randomcliche2

Good call!

Fiona Amudala

Hi all

What is Mitchell’s scoring history when tagged by Selwood?

Randomcliche2

It would only be one match at most I think. Wouldn't have been tagged at Sydney. Sorry bit late for VC selection.

Cobee Bear

Who's in people's top 3 never again list after this season, for me it's:

1. Caddy
2. Hurley
3. Hibberd

Finnius

hibberd, dusty and robbie gray. Those last two wayy too inconsistent and form players.

Keenbutcluess

Add Kreuzer, Petracca and Mills to that. Keep expecting the latter two to break out, but I don’t think it will happen. Angrier especially at Mills, because I chose him over Lloyd.

Randomcliche2

Ouch on the Lloyd choice. It's the only starting pod selection that has kept my season alive.

neil demons delight

Hey Shake good luck in the finals .I just got Goldy in for Nank puts me 2418 to 2417 Going to be close mate. Sorry to match your Goldy but he has a good last 3, if I can get over you .Almost a Shake and Fake Got you in the resies in Elites also. Lloyd Pope in your Cazaly looks too good for me .160 lead and a better team Great league been fun cheers Shake

Shake_n_Bake_

I do have you in a couple of finals this weekend. Gaff will be my only trade this week. Leaves me 1 left! I have Rockburners in UTCazaly have to win to progress going to be close l think. And to you mate good luck 🍀

neil demons delight

Kylie has been great for a few years now ,will be hard to toss for you

Shake_n_Bake_

Definitely, l went a little different with my vc pick. Danger!

Derek

nice.

i'm enloying this weekend. not worry about SC. through to a couple of prelims last week and knocked out of the rest. week off. enjoy watching footy on the sofa, not from behind it.

Shake_n_Bake_

Have a beer for me Derek. Ill work away until the Pies get under way then go back to watching at work 🍻

Finnius

I am Lloyd pope neil. You never know might be closer than you think.

neil demons delight

Hi Finnius you have had a great year .What is the theme behind LLOYD POPE it's a great league well up the ladder and great coaches which tests us all

Finnius

Thanks neil. Don't have any trades though so can hopefully stick it out. Lloyd Pope is a cricketer who plays australia under 19s – cult icon with flaming red hair. I played with him in a tournament a couple of years ago – great guy.

neil demons delight

That's novel Finnius did he play with Capt Pat McKenna now at the dees? Look forward to playing the BBL s c

Finnius

I think McKenna was a few years before him NDD. I love BBL supercoach, it should be even better this year with the longer season.

hedski

Takes a bit of thinking with the double rounds and byes Fin, good fun in the off season.

hedski

Both my opponents (work cashy and Patch) have the vc on Titch.
I am copping a donut (Howe).
Should I bang the vc on Dusty who neither have and hope for big things against the Suns???
Or Jelwood who neither have?
Feel like I need a bit of a miracle…

Sam

Do I trade or hold Howe. I have 1 trade left

neil demons delight

Unfortunately Hedski Tich will kill it.Jelwood for me though good luck mate

hedski

I'm hoping he cops a bit of Scooter attention Neil.

Wedge

Scott saying they'll try and clamp titch. Moving vc to danger

hedski

Good move Wedge, 50 at qtr time, I've gone Dusty vc.

Derek

Danger 92 at half time. if the cats are to get back in this game he will need to go 200+

Shake_n_Bake_

Went with Danger as vc just hope it works out. Watching the game at work and l still think Selwood was better than his 29 at half time 🤔

Wedge

Worked out well for a change. Those last minute decisions tend to make you feel foolish. Just need cripps and Gawn to stay down and I might get my league wins

AuroraBorealis?!

Who should i play on field, Mihochek or Duman? Leaning toward mihochek at this point as i feel he can maybe kick a few against Brisbane

hedski

Can you loop Mihocek against Duman?

AuroraBorealis?!

Unfortunately not, my non playing player was Ridley

Finnius

Mihocek for me

AuroraBorealis?!

Cheers Fin, i think im gonna stick with him

hedski

Agreed

Derek

the game is too fast for Jelwood now.

neil demons delight

Welcome at Melbourne Derek

Derek

he did play well in the last quarter

Defying_Madness

Freekickcats

hedski

If Blicz had of been paid the 50m and slotted a goal could have been a different outcome DM!
Great game as always, tough ask for the cats now.

Derek

Go hawks

hedski

Ha

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Phew vindication.
Brought in Gaz last week for a pod in finals
Stuffed it last week as being -ve at qtr time but today. Gaz of old. Still the little master. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😁" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f601.svg"&gt;
Go goat. Big finish to the year coming up.

Loved it when the press got stuck into him during the week. Was always gonna spurred him on to own it today..thanks dermie 🐐

Randomcliche2

Worpeado was pretty bloody good on him. When Gaz was the goat there was no way a first year player could have even laid a hand on him. Was pretty good, unlike some of his mates.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Yep.
A couple of teams hawks being one have an uncanny knack of getting bargains in the draft while also filling a need.

Worpedo is a rippa.
Only gonna get better the more he plays. gr8 play in the 3rd on jelwood.

hedski

Playing against Patch, interesting that he vc'd Neale and captained Titch…..

TOPHAWK1

Jesus Hedski!!! Just saw it with my own eyes! WTF?? What a howler by Patch. Unbelievable. He will cop some serious heat on the podcast on Monday. Looking forward to hearing the excuses! LOL

TOPHAWK1

I had Titch as VC. Probably going either Grundy or Macrae as captain now.

hedski

I went Dusty, should have backed Danger in like normal but meh.
Think I'll go Cripps.

TOPHAWK1

Grundy may be down a bit being up against the big Stef. Still think he could go 140. You are in with a big chance against Patch now mate. Good luck! I am against Lloyd Pope. He has a scary good team. Dont think I can get over the top of him, but hanging tough up to this point.

hedski

I'm a man down Toppa so need all the luck I can get, hoping Stef puts up a good show against Grundy for my other league match (Patch has Stef same as me)

Finnius

I am lloyd pope tophawk. Why do you have howe on the bench?

TOPHAWK1

Hi Finnius. I know mate. I am up against it!! Howe is on the bench as he is not playing. Expected to return next week. Not trading him out. I am a bit stretched as you can see. 😀

Finnius

Yeah I didn't realise tophawk. I'm glad I traded him last week then… even if i am on zero trades now. How many do you have left?

TOPHAWK1

One more than you. LOL Will I use it this week or will I wait? I guess time will tell!

Lekdog

Have already been abusing him, was on a plane and wouldn't have been able to deploy his loop option

Pman

I had Mitchell as VC who only scored 102 so who to make Captain out of Macrae, Cripps, Grundy or Gawn? Worried Max may pull out tomorrow and Grundy won't have it all his own against Stef Martin tonight so leaning towards Macrae or Cripps but would appreciate some feedback re best captaincy choice. Cheers..

Finnius

Macrae for me

Cobee Bear

Injury carnage!

Jeffrey

Need your help community!

Who to Captain out of:

Gawn, Macrae or Cripps???

Corey

I like Cripps Jeffrey I reckon he could carry the Blues to victory tomorrow!

Ben

I'm going Macrae as he h has no tagged Jacobs not playing tomorrow & Cripps is playing interstate!

Defying_Madness

Ding dong down goes my captain and my week

Ahmad rubas

How bads the injury? Kelly to Fyfe if he is back next week or Oliver if Fyfe isn’t back

Defying_Madness

jogged off the field but you never know with concussions

Ahmad rubas

Hopefully he is back by next week GWS averting unlucky with injuries

Corey

Can’t believe this Josh Kelly out with concussion like how unlikely do you have to be GWS, I’m not a GWS supporter but wow Atleast you know everyone on their list will get a game this year!

Russty_

Terrible luck Corey how did it happen?

Corey

Tex Walker sling tackle Kelly didn’t have the ball

Corey

Heath Shaw now gone Kennedy crashed into him in the contest hyper extending Shaw’s knee!

BrownlowBoy

Why is Tex even a captain.

Shake_n_Bake_

Do you think Degoey hurt his same leg 🤔

hedski

So I have to choose one of Ahern or Giro to play on field, could be my last big choice for the year.
I just know I'll get it wrong……

TOPHAWK1

I know the feeling. I also have a crucial choice to make. Do I loophole Rocky's 79 with J Smith, or go Ahern onfield……I think Rocky's 79 is not enough to beat my opponents in my finals. I need a tonne out of Ahern for me to be a real shot to win some of my match ups. Decisions decisions!!

hedski

Yeah, I wish I could loop them.
Leaning towards Giro at home against the blues.
That's a tough decision you have there TH.

Lekdog

If 79 isn't eniugh to win you have to deploy Ahern I think

Lekdog

I'd back Ahern

TOPHAWK1

I think you are right Lek. Ahern is more than capable and could do well today against the dogs. Rocky's score doesn't cut it. No guts no glory!!

neil demons delight

Had the same problem with Cloes 73 Not enough to beat Shake Ahearn it is for me too

neil demons delight

COLES bloody computer must be made in Geelong

Lazza

Oh no

Rupert_The_Dog

This is sort of footy related.
Lol at Foxtels latest TV offer "Only $4 p/day no lock in contract" small print says "Minimum charge $199 on direct debit"

Lekdog

watch this space, they'll be offering single channel subscriptions very soon, might finally be realising their model is broken

Wedge

I've been waiting 15 years for this option

Lekdog

I mean this is what I gathered from a meeting with them the other day

hedski

Yep, so I took Ahern over Giro, goddammit he looks slow and shit.
Get a bloody touch.

Cobee Bear

Pretty hard call

hedski

Yeah, trying to put a rocket up him, that was a better qtr.
That missed shot on goal would have been handy, he owes me two in the second half!!
Need at least 80+ points from him, he's on 32 at half time.

Cobee Bear

If North keep opening up the game it's not too much to expect two 25 point qtrs from him. Fingers crossed.

hedski

Yeah they're starting to dominate, he should pick up, worked his way into it in the second qtr.

Cobee Bear

Well, 50 point qtrs have been known to happen…

hedski

Going backwards now, there goes my season.

hedski

Spoke to soon…
A 3 point qtr Ahern? Really???

Ahmad rubas

I took ahern over rocky 79 looks like I’m not playing any prelim finals. If only ahern kicked that goal instead of hit the post could scrape of scraped a 50

pigjumpprusik

Unfortunate to everyone who had him on field, but at the end of the day, he's a rookie averaging 73. Not what you want on field for the 2nd round of SC finals

hedski

Hell no, but better than a donut.
Just….

Ahmad rubas

No not complaining he is a rookie should of stayed safe with the 79 but before the doggies game looked likely that I would lose all my finals so had to take a risk

Hawks

McLean has been crap the past month, I need him to pull his finger out to keep my SC league chances alive.

C'mon McLean

Hawks

Thanks for reading this post at halftime Toby, and appreciate the tumbs up

Derek

The finger was extracted

kanga

Sh!+boner spirit – Kangas let you down every time when it matters.

Big Roo

You can add the Dees too – biggest let down going – flat track bullies
12-1 vs the bottom teams and 0-7 versus the top 8.

Defying_Madness

Dees and North both basically killed their finals hopes today. They both miss from here I think

BrownlowBoy

Honestly footy can be so cruel.

Looks like Alex Johnson has done yet another ACL.

hedski

No one deserves that much bad luck BB, bloody shocking.

Finnius

His other knee as well. Terrible luck.

Hawks

It is a shame, the guy needs to transplant some of his guts (which are super strong) into his knees.

hedski

Banfield late out, COME ON CAPTAIN CRIPPA!

AuroraBorealis?!

I would've gone with Cripps as C but not with banfield tagging

Finnius

Stil happy with chucking the armband on Macrae.

pigjumpprusik

Banfield not a huge concern for captain selection's. He's a long way off a Ben Jacobs where you want to avoid a matchup

Ahmad rubas

Need 120 from Crippa to win 2 out of my 4 matchups 40 more in a quarter plus 10 mins is doable

Ahmad rubas

My maths was wrong needed 108 it turns out and Cripps got 112 🙂

Shake_n_Bake_

Im sure l weren’t the only one but Macrae for Gaff worked well😊

Finnius

Yeah I'm pretty stoked with that as well Shake. Gave him the captaincy as well for good measure.

Shake_n_Bake_

Had vc capt on danger Finnius so kept his score. Still alive in a few leagues which is great!

hedski

Nice work Shaker, Gaff sitting on my bench still nursing his poor old sore knuckles….

Shake_n_Bake_

Silly boy Gaff!!

pigjumpprusik

Potentially Kelly to Macrae could be a very popular trade next week if he doesn't get up

Pman

Worked a treat for me too as I made him Captain which was the difference in every final I won this week.

neil demons delight

great stuff Shake

Shake_n_Bake_

Cant believe you were out in straight Neil. Like they say there is always next year! Tnx for being a part of UTCazaly.

BlueBaggerJosh

need 130 from cripps, 100 from walters and 90 from ed curnow or its curtains for me

Defying_Madness

Walters injured and I have no trades. So it begins

Finnius

Same. Ahern may be dropped as well who is my only cover…

TOPHAWK1

Well played Finnius! You were just too good. I pulled the Brayshaw rabbit out of my hat for Howe, but Ahern screwed me over big time. Good luck in the prelims next week mate. Cheers. TH

Finnius

Cheers Tophawk. Brayshaw was a good pick but Ahern made it very hard. In saying that, I'll be fielding him for Walters for the rest of the season, so hopefully he doesn't do the same to me…

TOPHAWK1

We will meet again next week in my own league! That league is the Guns and Rookies. That will be a classic preliminary final Finnius. Might have a sneaky chance now after your couple of injury set backs. Good luck next week!

Steeeve

Never thought Mitchell into Gawn would spell the end of my season. Top all year, inside top 1000, out in straight sets. Thanks everyone for your help and to Patch and Lek for their hard work getting the site back up and running. Good luck to those who are still in with a chance in their leagues and most importantly going for top spot overall.

derek

cheeers Steeeve

Lazza

😳🙁😦

Finnius

2560 for me this week. Pretty happy with that, but Kelly and Walters both gone and no trades has made it pretty bittersweet…

TOPHAWK1

As you know 2413 for me. Fortunately no injury concerns for me at this stage, but no trades. Bloody shattering to lose Kelly and Walters. How long will Kelly be out for?

Finnius

Had a concussion, but it was pretty bad. Could be back next week, or for the rest of the season.

Hawks

Kelly will most likely play next week I think

Ahmad rubas

2296 I’ll take that after ahern and missing danger and macrae as vc/c scores. Most importantly won 3 out of 4 finals 2 of them by 4 points

Lazza

Kelly will play …

Trades

No way he will. He was knocked out to next week!

Lazza

Shite, that’s a great score Finn, well done. fantastic.. 2350 for me.. fortunately I only had a couple of games this week but got thru on both with Max as ‘C’.

Hawks

Well won 2 out of 3 this weekend.

One of my opposition needed 109 from Walters, hamstring pinged at 96…..never like to see a player injured, this may be an exception.

BlueBaggerJosh

was 1st in one league-out in straight sets. 8th in another (only league left) and i'm into a prelim (no chance of winning though lol). Here's to 2019 fellas.

Stacky23

Taylor walker and Jeremy McGovern lost me my final by 10pts, sometimes the SC Gods just hate ur guts, hope walker isnt seen again this year

Finnius

I had him last year Stacky, as did Patch. Definitely on the never again list after that one…

Stacky23

I had Kelly as a Pod and my opponent had Mgovern and sadly the luck did not flow my way, kelly would of easily cracked the ton

derek

finally going to bring Simpson into my team. i say this every week of every year

one of my final two trades will be Shaw to Simpson, although it might be very close for cash if i can do it with just one trade. Might have to be TMac and save the last trade for GF week.

Finnius

Good trade management Derek – can I borrow the other one?

TOPHAWK1

I am jealous Derek. Used my final trade this week. No injuries and plenty of bench cover. Made 2 preliminary finals so pretty happy with that. Hopefully my side can hold up for 2 more weeks. Time to say a little prayer. What score did you end up with mate?

Derek

2363 this week. Grundy as C. Not having much of a year, Byes killed me.

Still alive in a few good leagues. Magnificent 7 League ranked 116

Shake_n_Bake_

I have Walters and 1 trade left still in 3 leagues the rest are minor leagues. Might just save that trade or maybe just go all or nothing. Still have Spargo and Fritch on the pine.

Derek

Fritch is still good bench cover. Might be some loophole action available, but melb does have two Sunday games

Shake_n_Bake_

And Walters plays 1st game Saturday, so cant really loop.

Derek

Thanks John. I love how you kept typing rather than just deleting the comment. Love it.

I don’t have the cash. Looks like TMac and another season without Simpson.

Holty01

Just when you think Melbourne is about to take that next step they once again lose to a good side. Still havent beaten anyone in the top 8 as it stands. It has me scratching my head. I guess same can be said for Collingwood as the only top 8 side they have beaten is Melbourne. Although injuries have really hit Collingwood hard this year so they do have an excuse.

Defying_Madness

I don’t see Melbourne beating their next two opponents either. A bitter 9th place finish is looking likely again

neil demons delight

Melbourne's bottom 6 just don't cut it /Pederson and Ken-Harris are prime bait .Play the kids dees Hannan and TSmith

Finnius

Wow! I was rank 40 for the round and moved into 879th. Definitely not expecting that. Hopefully can finish top 500.

Holty01

Nice work Fin

Finnius

Cheers holty.

Russty_

Awesome Finn, keep it going!…would that be your best finish ever?

Finnius

My best is 1500 Russty, so would just be happy to get over that. This is only my third year of Supercoach though, so hopefully it is only onwards and upwards!

What is your best?

Russty_

I got to around 1500 last year, won't be beating that this year but can't improve every year, sometimes we go backwards a bit. Will be revising my never again list next year haha. Good luck in your finals mate.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Walters was just added to my list<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🤨" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f928.svg"&gt;

Shake_n_Bake_

Play you again in a couple of finals next week Trigga. Do you have any trades left? I have 1.

neil demons delight

great stuff Finnius and you got me well and truly Best of luck to you and Shake who also killed me Onward to the granny boys NDD

Derek

Very well done. Is that a PB?

Finnius

I got to 450 last year before going backwards, but I'm pretty close to it now. Definitely my highest round score. More focussed on league because I actually have a shot at winning a few but rank is just a bonus :)) My goal is to catch SC wow who was chatting smack the whole year… I'm only 150 points now and he has plenty of premos on the bench, so hopefully can overtake him.

What's your highest?

ZzZCalintZzZ

Awesome stuff Fin

Derek

I managed 78th overall 3 years ago but was as high as 46th with 2 weeks remaining. Last couple of years have been very average.

Russty_

66 is ranked 1200 or so this week Finn so I think you've got him covered.

the early crow

Hey all i seen the funniest thing on friday it was a greyhound race , the dogs name kid you not was supercoach wow, the dog charged away by a big margin and then most of the field beat it over the line, it got very tired and crumbled.
Fancy that

Russty_

Sounds like the Tortoise and the Hare story, Wow's still top 500-ish, so not too bad, his mate 66 isn't faring so well now, still better than me though lol

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Swings and roundabouts
Last week didnt have any of the big 3 and with a couple of under performing premos ranked 50,000 for the week with a score of 2410

This week scored 2450 weekly rank 1700.

Swings and roundabouts.

gator59

Hi Trigga to good for me this year mate ,, It's bloody hard to play when all the carnage with premos go down with LTI, which I seem to have had all of them this year… Hope you go well in your finals
Could you please let me know if your doing a finals series like you did last year …. If so could you save a spot for me,, cheers Gator

Derek

I saw your team a few weeks ago Gator, just dead in the water mate. Bad luck this year but you’ll still outrank me

gator59

Cheers Derek … The SC Gods weren't with me this year on premo LTI's and being down 4 corrective trades that would have come in very handy at this time of year at the start of the year thanks to no internet while on holidays in Tassie___I'm not sure what the moral is here blaming holidays , Bad SC injury riddled Premos or just the SC gods for this crap year!!!__ Hope all finalists the best of luck

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Will be running again

Would like it to be a seperate article at end of home and away season.

Need to contact lek/patch to publish on JR site.

gator59

Cheers mate

neil demons delight

we scored the same miserable total this week Gat What a horrible year. To make it worse the Saints put Melbourne jerseys on to play Sydney At least they scored like always 10 18 or so See you in Trigg's ending and BIG BASH cant do worse

gator59

It's been an absolute mare this year Neil… Onwards we must trudge and look forward to Triggs happy ending__It's nearly time to hit the ACME team picker for next year and it can't be any worse than this year … Fingers crossed

Derek

Good luck in the Magnificent 7 this week Triga

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Ahh i see im taking on the mighty bunnies this week.

Last 6 weeks scored between 2400 and 2480. So hopefully will land around the same. No.one showing off just consistent.
If the bunny pods can push you over 2500 will probably take the chockies. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😎" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f60e.svg"&gt;

Be a good match up.
I see ranger and INP in the other final
Both should be epic and a hard fought contest. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt;

neil demons delight

It would be good to see you win it Trigg Though the other 3 are mighty good and worthy as well . Gator and myself spent a lot of time setting it up in honour of the seven warriors in the Happy Ending's inaugural year, -so go Trigg go—- best of luck to all NDD

gator59

Well said mate
