SuperCoach Panic Room: Grand Final edition

Published by Kev on

Here we go, community! We’re just hours away from the final rolling lockout of the season. If you’re in a grand final, congratulations! The winner will be showered with praise. The loser will be taunted and booed until my throat is sore! Patch, bless his cotton socks, has Homer Simpson’d his way to the Inner Sanctum league GF where he will get absolutely crushed by Chicko. It’s going to be awesome!

The podcast this week put a bow on the 2019 season as Lek and Patch were joined by Damo, Baz, and Foz to talk all things finals and what 2020 has in store for us. Baz wrapped his 2020 preview by looking at the rookies prospects of Sydney, West Coast, and the Western Bulldogs. Damo, professional until the end, gave his all important captaincy options for this week. And, of course, Matty has put to rest the curse of the cheat sheet writer by delivering yet another week of cheat sheety goodness. 

A fair warning to all the ball-havers amongst us, the following will make you make you want to hold close the ones you love. Steele Sidebottom is out tonight (again, I’m warning you) with a ruptured testicle. A. Ruptured. Testicle. Reports filtering through claim old mate copped a stray boot to the jatz crackers that has split the nut (no confirmation whether if it’s the left or right nut) right down the seam, turned the two veg into three, taken a chip off the family jewels… you get my drift. God’s speed for your recovery, Steele. RIP. Darcy Moore, he of the correct amount of nuts and a repaired hamstring, is his replacement. Essendon are also feeling the “injury” (read: rested because finals are confirmed) heat, with all of Dyson Heppell, David Zaharakis, Jake Stringer, and Orazio Fantasia all out with various “injuries” and “ailments”. Tom Bellchambers and new boy Tom Jok (MID – 117.4k) are amongst the ins.  

Elsewhere, Buddy makes his return and will play his 300th game against the Saints. Sam Rowe will make his club debut in that one. Brayden Preuss returns for the Dees to help out Maxy with his battle against the red-hot Goldmember (FYI – there’s rumblings Maxy could sit this one out). Popular bench rookie Kyle Dunkley has been omitted. The Cats have a ruckman again with Rhys Stanley fit to play against the Kreuzer-led Carlton. Roughie has hung up the boots for the Hawks and Jack Scrimshaw returns to play his first game since round 10. It just wouldn’t be a SuperCoach grand final without some sort of Toby Greene tomfoolery. He’s been in impervious form in the absence of GWS top line mids, however he is out of the clash against Gold Coast. Some tall units in the form of the two Jeremy’s (Cameron and Finlayson) and Shane Mumford return. 

On Sunday, not much happening on the team sheets of either the Western Bulldogs and Adelaide. Callum Porter (MID – 123.9k) the only addition so far. Tim English has been confirmed to return. Richmond will welcome back captain Trent Cotchin, again no confirmed outs as yet. Jake Aarts (106.9k) has again been named in the extended squad. Brisbane have also been pretty quiet with Allen Christensen being a forced change due to injury. The coach-less Fremantle have added 6 names to their squad, ruck Scott Jones and Brett Bewley among them. Anyone still hanging onto Scott Lycett will be crossing their fingers and toes that he’s served his penance for whatever he did. He’s been named to lead the ruck for the Power. 

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

If you’ve got a settled side and a trade in the bank, you’ve done bloody well. There’s absolutely no shame in holding onto that trade through the weekend in case there’s a rouge late out and you get caught with your pants down. You’ll be kicking yourself if you trade now when you didn’t need to. If you feel like rolling the dice, Statty Matty has put together a huge 20 options with more stats on their recent performance you can poke a stat-filled stick at. Check it out here

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

I just couldn’t let my final Draftstars write up for the year not involve my beloved Tigers. I’ll be back tomorrow (or later tonight if it’s still raining in England) with a Richmond v Brisbane preview.

That’s me done for the year, folks. It has been a great ride. See ya in 2020 xoxo


jayden · 23/08/2019 at 11:49

getting rid of sidebottom, got 530k who do i get?

    Russty_ · 23/08/2019 at 13:24

    Dusty Martin.

hedski · 23/08/2019 at 11:57

Cheers to all the crew on the site for another stellar year of content, much appreciated.
Also to all the guys/gals in the comments and leagues, good luck in your grand finals.
Only made one "Losers" grand final this year in Magnificent Seven where I take on Kev's Manhores, good luck mate, I reckon I'll be copping a donut in the fwd line with Tobias out and Chol on the extended bench. 👍

    SC_Kev7 · 23/08/2019 at 14:05

    Best of luck to you too, hedski! I’ll be at full strength (touch wood) so an epic Sunday shirting of the pants is on the cards!

      hedski · 23/08/2019 at 19:35

      Donut confirmed goddammit!!

    Lekdog · 23/08/2019 at 18:50

    Love you Hedski

      hedski · 23/08/2019 at 19:36

      Aw shucks, great work for the season Lek, bring on 2020.

    Russty_ · 23/08/2019 at 19:21

    Good luck against Kev this week Hed , you may need some!…Greene out is a big slap in the mush, didn't see that coming, see you in Trigga's post season finals battle, cheers Mate.

      hedski · 23/08/2019 at 19:36

      I'll be there bud 👍

Steeeve · 23/08/2019 at 12:25

Grand final week this week and looks like both my trades will be luxury trades. Thinking Shiel to Josh Kelly, not sure about my second trade (if any) but I can afford Sicily to Hurn.
Or should I hold out just in case Gawn is a late out??? Is there any word of that possibility with Preuss back in?

    The Ranger · 23/08/2019 at 17:21

    I'd hold that trade until Gawn is on the field Steeeve

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 23/08/2019 at 17:23

    I'm in the same boat. There is a trade I would like to make but it involves someone playing in tonight's match. Think I'm going to have to hold out just in case Gawn is a late out.

Stupid Coach · 23/08/2019 at 12:53

I would like to echo the sentiments above and give a huge thanks to Kev and all the crew for making this site informative and entertaining week in week out for another year. Unfortunately, I just fell short (well a long way short) of the big dance but good luck to everyone who has made the Grand Final this year. I still have one trade left. I will wait to see if there are any late outs (i.e. Big Maxy) otherwise should I use the last trade on Sloane to Taranto/Cunnington or Parker or downgrade Jarrod Cameron or Hill to any rookie on the bubble this week.

Appreciate any thoughts and advice much appreciated.

    SC_Kev7 · 23/08/2019 at 14:08

    Great to have you on board this year, SC. Targeting GC’s mids with Taranto is solid play imo.

BondyLad · 23/08/2019 at 13:16

Goodluck to all those in the granny tonight,

Need some help on the final move before tonight’s big dance

Heeney out via Dunkley (DPP, I’ve had him in mids)

Stein out for a rookie

I’ll have $640k to spend to bring in a mid. Was thinking Yeo or Bont but open to other suggestions! Any help is appreciated

    Holty01 · 23/08/2019 at 15:56

    Who you currently have in the mids?

      BondyLad · 23/08/2019 at 16:10

      Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Oliver, Neale, Cunnington and Merrett

        The Ranger · 23/08/2019 at 17:20

        Treloar against a weakened Bombers team?

          BondyLad · 23/08/2019 at 17:27

          I’m 10k short for Treloar. As a Don fan I’m over optimistic that Clarke will do a job on him 😂

        SamuraiPizzaCat · 23/08/2019 at 17:32

        Josh Kelly playing against GC?

    Russty_ · 23/08/2019 at 17:47

    Yeo's going pretty well lately, as is a fired up Dusty Martin.

    Shake_n_bake · 23/08/2019 at 18:17


John · 23/08/2019 at 17:31

ROB Out. Not surprised but Bines wont score much.

Hi Community. One trade left, have Gawn. Cant afford Grundy or Goldy.
So do I go Martin (vs Soldo) or Lycett (vs Scott Jones who?) or even Kreuz?

Martin at least has something to play for.


    Russty_ · 23/08/2019 at 17:45

    Hey John, Lycett has something to play for…to not get dropped again, he'd be my choice.

    Lekdog · 23/08/2019 at 18:52

    Are we afraid that Gawn will miss still?

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/08/2019 at 18:06

Bit of gold there with lucky irish paych Kev. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😂" src=""&gt;

Just logged on quickly to check teams and how I fared last week.

Kinda ironic that pod players in green, houli and walters on my never again list put me out of most finals. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😩" src=""&gt;

Bad choice of capt and that was all she wrote. Worst score for 8 rounds. Not an ideal way to finish. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🤧" src=""&gt;

Bringing in clarry 3 rounds ago instead of bbqs probably worst trade for 2019.

Good luck to all you magnificent bustards who are fighting it out in the GF this weekend.

Thanks to everyone for making this site the #1 for SC.

Not only all the article writers but also the comment writers who are the Best of the Best.

Congrats on a great year, well done and good luck.

    Lekdog · 23/08/2019 at 18:53

    We love to have you on board Trigga!

    Russty_ · 23/08/2019 at 19:18

    Bad luck with the bad finish there Trig…I had similar last week, was in 7 potential GF's, ended up in one luckily..up against Patch to the Max this week as my last chance at glory, well done for the year, you finished on a nice high ranking.

allmobitools · 23/08/2019 at 20:52

good one post admin keep it up…..

redherringfc · 23/08/2019 at 21:55

So, Hawkins is going to go nuts this weekend, 🤞. But you can’t put the C on the big c, because then he pumps out a 40 odd (think I’ve been bitten twice this year).

So, my confession is that I didn’t put the v on Grundy.

This is like confession for a Catholic, isn’t it? I admit my sin and then I won’t burn in fiery pits of hell for eternity.

My mate George said that’s how it works, but I’m not too sure how that’s working out for him.

Anyway, my Labrador had 13 puppies today, I’m backing Hawkins to kick 1 for each of them and outscore Grundy by 50.

    Russty_ · 23/08/2019 at 22:21

    Mate, that's just nuts not taking Grundy as VC…anyway, good luck I'll take his 156 plus scaling 🙂
    Even if you get your ass handed to you this week, at least you can make some extra Labrador money lol

      redherringfc · 24/08/2019 at 00:06

      Yep, absolutely crazy. Thankfully Grundy only scored 35 in the last quarter, It could have been a lot worse.

Maverick_ · 24/08/2019 at 00:06

Good luck to all playing in grand finals this weekend!
Been a very busy week so haven’t been around..
Got my cash league GF this week and VCd grundy so off to a nice start.. Got tobias Greene to offload though am considering bringing back jezza to kick 10 against GC and push for that Coleman (if brown doesn’t seal it earlier in the day)

This gives me the $$ to luxury upgrade Sloane/Mcrouch too a JKelly who I expect to tear GC apart

loop · 24/08/2019 at 05:50

I've been politely waiting all week for Derek to do his final COMMUNITY SURVIVOR update but it looks like its not going to happen.

A summary of the grand final is –
Uniques for Yucky – Whitfield, Treloar, Bont, Boak.
Greendale FC – M Crouch, Merritt, Blakely, Hawkins, Hurn.
Kezzam – Laird, B Crouch, Yeo, Worpel.

Greendale was in early trouble with Crouch, Hawkins and Blakely.
Laird (77) and B Crouch ( 85) were pretty bad for me (Kezzam) and I chose Fyfe as captain so I thought that I was out of the running.
Yuckys players were all consistent with Bont (90) being his lowest scorer.
Yeo scored (142) so I knew that Worpel needed to score about 132 for me to get the best score in the unique player total. He scored 142 with the last few points coming in the last few minutes.

When the final scores came up I was shocked to see that Yucky had also picked Fyfe for captain.
Final totals –
Yucky 2435
Kezzam 2443
GreendaleFC 2167

So the trophy is MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the end my trade of Zorko to Yeo paid off.

Thanks again to Derek for all his hard work and his clever concept.

    hedski · 24/08/2019 at 09:07

    Congrats on the win loop, Derek did a wrap up the other day on the podcast thread.

      loop · 24/08/2019 at 09:39

      Whoops:) Thats embarrassing. My apologies. I thought that it seemed odd.

        Derek · 24/08/2019 at 10:39


        wow. what a finish.

        a final that lived up to all the hype. in many ways it even eclipsed the Lions v cats and the tigers v eagles matches on the weekend.

        everywhere you looked was quality.

        Greendale FC had shown some flashes of brilliance during the season but was going to need a bit of luck in the final. unfortunately lady luck deserted him in the form of Tom Hawkins and Matt Crouch, so had to settle for 3rd place. great effort.

        On paper there was nothing separating yucky and Kezzam. between them they had a strangle hold on the immunity necklace during the run home and it was always going to be a tough final from two teams ranked well inside the top 1000.

        As you would expect, there wasn't many POD players, so the result was going to come down to touch of class or a brave captain's choice.

        In the end it was Kezzam (2443) armed with Yeo & Worpel in their team was just too good for yucky (2435) who stuck with JKelly and the Bont. 9 points was all that separated these two great teams, on any other day it may have been a different result.

        thankyou to all 127 who started and i look forward to running it aGain next year

          Derek · 24/08/2019 at 10:50

          Congratulations Loop. You had a great season.

          Was this your ‘breakout’ season? Or have you been consistent top 1000?

          I do believe there was even a prize for the winner.

          A copy of the First Edition Jock Reynolds Magazine, 2016. (Complete with the centrefold still inside). A piece of history.

          If you already have a copy, you might like to donate it as next years prize, otherwise we’ll have to arrange how to get it to you.

            loop · 24/08/2019 at 13:38

            Last year my highest rank was 183, was around that most of the year but finished 494.
            This year my start was horrendous with Heeney, Dunkley, Mills and Brayshaw all terrible. Ranked about 55000 at the end of round 2 so I've just had to trade to improve my rank, its been a good challenge, currently 771 which isnt sensational but pretty good considering how I started.
            Re the prize – all good, I'll pass, keep it for next year.
            I did get a digital copy of one magazine, I'm not sure which year.

            JMOr · 30/08/2019 at 14:29

            Hey man,

            are you the 'Derek' that ran 'JR Cash League' this year for $20 or a completely different Derek? hahha, trying to find the admin of the league to get the prize transferred but can't for the life of me find the details on messenger.


              Derek · 30/08/2019 at 16:43

              Hi Josh, that is me.

              well done, you too good.

              i just sent you an email.

          GreendaleFC · 24/08/2019 at 16:36

          Thanks for the running the league Derek. Was definitely my league of most interest. Going Hawkins over Marshall mid year was truly my big mistake.

Hazey · 24/08/2019 at 11:43

What's three weather doing down there fellas? I'm in the departure lounge in Denver, about to board and considering a last minute trade of Gawn to Witts/Goldy to give me a point of difference over my opponent!

$650 on the line!

    Hazey · 24/08/2019 at 11:43

    Any news on if Gawn is playing?

      Fiona · 24/08/2019 at 11:48

      I’m also keen to know

        Hazey · 24/08/2019 at 12:08

        I've taken the punt…. Come on Goldy

          Fiona · 24/08/2019 at 12:17

          Iv got two trades but I’m thinking sicilly to houli and b crouch to dusty so I’m waiting on Gawn details to see if I need to go goldi.

            Fiona · 24/08/2019 at 16:29

            Gosh I’m glad I stuck with Gawn

            Hazey · 25/08/2019 at 19:24

            Monster week…. Traded Goldy for Gawn, thought I was GONE….. Cane home on the back of Matt Crouch/Neale/Cripps to win by 126.

            ThreePeat baby!!!!!

Hazey · 24/08/2019 at 12:42

Bloody internet available on the flight …. I've jumped the gun!

dontblushbaby · 24/08/2019 at 12:50

Phew , no late changes

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/08/2019 at 13:00

    Gawn playing. No need to go to 7/11 now to get that Krispy Kreme donut!!😂🤣🍩

Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 13:24

I brought in Duncan so l can now loop Kennedy. Well if Duncan tons up Kennedy can finish the yr on the pine

TOPHAWK1 · 24/08/2019 at 13:35

Hold on. Emergency in Melbourne uniform and no sign of Gawn. A late late out? MFC GONNA SCREW US ALL OVER?

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/08/2019 at 13:56

    Gawn has been sighted!! About bloody time. LOL

      Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 14:03

      Nice mate!…no donuts except maybe from Heeney

        Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 15:34

        I was going to bring in Cameron but had Parker and bell on the pine so couldn’t loop! That’s why l choose Duncan at home

          Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 15:50

          Reckon Dunc will go well against the Blues Shake

            Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 22:52

            Should have just brought Cameron in Russty!!!!

Nuggety · 24/08/2019 at 14:02

Wait…so Gawn is playing??

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 14:20

    Yep, just rumours he wasn't I think.

Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 14:58

I have Kennedy with the emg. Who should l bench to take his score Duncan or Sloane?

    Holty01 · 24/08/2019 at 15:07

    Somebody tell the Saints to tag Kennedy. I have 2 GFs on the line. 😱

      Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 15:26

      Unreal!…he's on about 115 already with a quarter and a half to go, Steele should be all over him.

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 15:13

    Hey Shake, I'd bench Sloane.

      Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 15:18

      I think so Russty

Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 15:19

Jeez you'd be dirty if you traded Gawn to Goldy this week out of fear he'd miss!
80 at half time Goldy on 25

dontblushbaby · 24/08/2019 at 16:17

I took Grundys score but my opponent in a big cash league didn't , he left the C on Gawn ? Good luck or Good management ?

Fiona · 24/08/2019 at 16:32

Need advice
2 trades left
Bcrouch to dusty?
Sicily to Houli?


Opposition has houli, Sicily and BCrouch and we r neck and neck

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 16:57

    I'd do it Fiona, nothing to lose except your final maybe if you don't.

Defying_Madness · 24/08/2019 at 16:39

Accidentally left the C on Gawn after having Grundy VC lmao

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 16:56

    Not sure how you have any accidents in Grand Final week mate but well done! lol

Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 16:45

Haha got Duncan for 1 game and he’s gone 1st qtr. ohwell tnx for nothing. I’ll lose 4 gfs now 🙁

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 16:55

    All good Shake he's back from the dead.

Holty01 · 24/08/2019 at 17:12

I guess today proves just how massive a gap there is between the 2 best ruckmen in the comp vs the rest. Goldy has had a great year but was absolutely destroyed today. Will just make my decision next year with which rucks to start with a lot easier.

Joe · 24/08/2019 at 17:53

Sicily to Rich? Or hold Sicily?

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 19:47

    Tough call Joe, Sicily can go 140 or 70..0r 40…lol, I guess Rich has been a little more consistent lately.

      Joe · 24/08/2019 at 20:07

      Just pulled the trigger.. wish me luck!!

        Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 20:20

        Good luck joe!…looking all right so far haha

          Joe · 24/08/2019 at 22:57


    Defying_Madness · 24/08/2019 at 20:08

    I went Sicily to Houli

JugHead · 24/08/2019 at 18:15

Gaz is still the best ball user for the Cats. I hope he goes around again.

johnno2908 · 24/08/2019 at 18:41

Darling to Jeremy Cameron or Dusty?

    dontblushbaby · 24/08/2019 at 18:59

    Jeremy C only needs 6 goals to get the Coleman if that helps make your mind up

dontblushbaby · 24/08/2019 at 19:32

I had Tom Stewart as my D9 who scored 125, who do I bench out of R.Laird ,B.Smith or J.Sicily ? thinking Laird at the moment ? Thanks

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 20:08

    My gut says Sicily, hope it isn't so though cause I have him too.

Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 19:42

That was a bummer mate, only a few inches between the win and the loss, Gawny was epic today, wish I'd captained him.

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 21:54

    Yep they're like the Twin Towers, before Osama bin Deadass brought them down.

Defying_Madness · 24/08/2019 at 20:08

Somehow projected for 2755. No way that happens right?

    Russty_ · 24/08/2019 at 20:21

    Helps when your Cap gets 400 odd lol, hope you get there.

Sam_01 · 24/08/2019 at 22:15

Well thought I’d nailed the Jezza Cameron trade in and captaincy
But of course Just about every other captaincy option went huge haha
Just glad to have them all in my team

    Defying_Madness · 24/08/2019 at 22:39

    very good trade in

Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 22:54

I think this time Grundy will start as no 1 ruck in all Australia Neil?!

    Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 23:18

    I think he will Neil 🤞😬

Shake_n_bake · 24/08/2019 at 22:55

Finish work very soon. And to here the Hawks got up!!!

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/08/2019 at 23:01

Good on the hawkers for getting up, i'll happily take the top 4 spot 🙂 #flagpies
On another note, is anybody else having an absolutely insane final round? I'm projected 2800 before sunday! Lot's of huge scores from a lot of popular players

    Sam_01 · 24/08/2019 at 23:21

    Wouldn’t be surprised if someone went 3k this round!
    I think I’ll be projected to go 2800 aswell AB just out of whack with the loophole, will take Cameron’s 152 as vc tho
    1865 off 13

    Defying_Madness · 25/08/2019 at 00:13

    Same here aurora. All my players went big except Heeney. Also go the Hawkers and go the Crows

    Iamme · 25/08/2019 at 00:30

    Finally the Hawks hand us something other than 11 loses in the last 12 meetings against them… So stoked we made top 4…..We are coming for you Cats! …..Let the Geelong post bye hoodoo continue.

      eyas · 25/08/2019 at 08:15

      Top 4, huh? Hawks won't play finals, keep toking on whatever it is you're smoking.

        Defying_Madness · 25/08/2019 at 11:26

        he is a pies fan lmao…

      hedski · 25/08/2019 at 13:45

      Bring it on Iamme. Meow. 👍🍻

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/08/2019 at 23:04

Also, is Enshala from the Holy Grail league on here? I've got him in the grand final (bad luck on not chucking the E on Sicily mate, would've been a close one if you did)

    Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 14:50

    Doh!…that's a kick yourself moment right there.

Daz · 25/08/2019 at 09:36

Last time i saw 3k was the week where GAJ scored like 250 odd and everyone had him as capt. think i scored like 2800 that week. Could be in for it again!

Holty01 · 25/08/2019 at 15:51

Gee Shake is about to do the Bont thing to me again. Went big first final I had against him and lost by 13. Hope it doesn’t happen again. 🤦🏼‍♂️

    Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 17:22

    You've got him comfortably Holty, well done winning the Magnificent 7, and A-Graders, and Up there Cazaly!…and a 2900 prediction no less!
    Shame you bailed on my Autotrade 2 league in Fantasy….. you finished number 1 and could've been up against me in the GF.

Defying_Madness · 25/08/2019 at 16:16

Oh boy 2417 with Houli, Neale, Fyfe and Boak to go

    Sam_01 · 25/08/2019 at 16:23

    With Neale Zorko Fyfe and Boak to go

      Defying_Madness · 25/08/2019 at 16:24

      holy shit gonna be some huge scores this week

        Sam_01 · 25/08/2019 at 16:31

        Yeah hahah I’m actually gonna score 3k

Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 17:12

Boak's started well.

    Sam_01 · 25/08/2019 at 17:19

    I know….. killing my dreams of 3k

      Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 17:36

      Boak and Walters…ouch if you had both.

        Browncow · 25/08/2019 at 19:01

        Got em both. Although my opponent is on 2849 so doesnt really matter 😬

          Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 19:10

          That's a heavy matchup Brown, did he send you to the Abbotoir?…lol, pretty hard to beat that kind of score.
          I would've got 2880 this week if I put Duursma on instead of Answerth.

            Browncow · 25/08/2019 at 19:48

            You must have still gone huge. Yep from the pasture to angus in that league.

    Maverick_ · 25/08/2019 at 17:59

    Happy to have taken Cameron over boak this week haha

redherringfc · 25/08/2019 at 17:23

If the Hoff can keep scoring 48 a quarter, I’m a chance.

    Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 17:32

    Go the Hoff!….didn't expect more than 70 from him for the whole game!

      redherringfc · 25/08/2019 at 19:00

      I almost traded him out, went Hartlett for Finlayson instead and that’s bitten me on the backside . I need him to outscore Mundy by 60. Which he’s pretty much on at the moment.

      It’s been great listening to your advice this year Russty, and having the odd bit of banter. Enjoy the off season, I’ll save a spot in a league for you next season.

        Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 19:09

        Hey herring cheers mate, ditto on the advice, I'm no expert but I try to keep up on current events…I've had my highest score ever this week, as I'm sure a lot of others will, happy to have won a grand final against some seriously good coaches.
        Happy to join your League next year mate.

        redherringfc · 25/08/2019 at 19:20

        Think I got there, but gee I did it the hard way, not putting v or c on Grawndy

        Daz · 25/08/2019 at 19:40

        I did trade him for Mundy last minute and it nearly cost me $600 in my cash league, got up by 20 odd in the end but jeez I had to work for it!!

Maverick_ · 25/08/2019 at 17:54

Can’t wait too see people’s monster scores this round! Will be a few break 2900 I think.. how’s everybody looking?

    Sam_01 · 25/08/2019 at 18:07

    2799 with Boak and Fyfe to come MAV!!

      Maverick_ · 25/08/2019 at 18:12

      Huuuuugggeee sam! Well done mate hopefully boak lifts and can crack 3000

    Holty01 · 25/08/2019 at 18:10

    I was heading there until Boak’s start.

      Maverick_ · 25/08/2019 at 18:13

      Yeah very ordinary start holty.. 9 disposals to the half isn’t that bad deserves more than 26 pts must be butchering it is he?

    nickgonzalez771 · 25/08/2019 at 18:13

    I'm keen as too! A lot will be really let down by Boak, myself included. probably looking at 2800, a clear 300 better than my best ever score. Might even slot into the top 5% for the first time!

      Maverick_ · 25/08/2019 at 18:14

      I wouldn’t be surprised if boak still tons up here nick. Great score 👍🏼

    COREYSC · 25/08/2019 at 19:20

    Just short of the 2,850 mark that’s enough of a score to see me return to this great game next season at least this week my score will be greater then my final rank hopefully i’ll Sneak inside the top 2K

      Sam_01 · 25/08/2019 at 19:23

      Massive score Corey, I fell just short of 3k should hopefully be enough to put me into the top 100
      Sitting at 180ish at the moment

richard · 25/08/2019 at 18:09

2723 with the Hoff to go.

Stupid Coach · 25/08/2019 at 18:44

When you score 2729 and would have won two grand finals and you didn't make any of them. Doh! Doh! Doh!. See you all in 2020!!

Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 18:52

Hey thanks Neil, looks like I might win one GF this year, had 7 chances last week but delivered a big ole spudly score, happy to have one win, bad luck Patchy to the Max.
Well done this year Neil, you're a gent mate ..see you in Trigg's happy ending, should be fun, hoping to do better in that than I did last year. 🙂 Save those trades next season mate…I will be.

dontblushbaby · 25/08/2019 at 19:23

2861, my highest score ever and also win 3 Cash Leagues , cha ching

Go Tiges

Best Wishes to all 🙂

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/08/2019 at 19:38

    Geez last week sucks!

    Highest score for the year and nothing to show for it.

    Bugger me, you suck round 22. 👎🤬
    600 more points this week, same team go figure??

      dontblushbaby · 25/08/2019 at 20:05

      Ha ?

AuroraBorealis?! · 25/08/2019 at 19:28

Congrats to Josh from team "Such is Fyfe" for taking out derek's JR Cash League, they just pipped Fin by 18 points.

Macca · 25/08/2019 at 19:30

2827 sc won both grand finals

Thanks for a great year

    Lekdog · 25/08/2019 at 22:33

    Great year Macca

Holty01 · 25/08/2019 at 19:40

I finally pipped the man Shake in a final. Must admit I’m slightly chuffed. ☺️

    Shake_n_bake · 25/08/2019 at 19:55

    I really pulled the wrong strings Holty. Started Cunnington had Sloane on the pine. Brought in Duncan and was telling Russty before the game l really wanted to bring in Cameron but had no loop options. But I’m glad you brought it home. Till next yr champ. I got over the line in 2 other GF which I’ll take.

      Holty01 · 25/08/2019 at 20:06

      Awesome mate. Unlucky to lose a final scoring over 2800. Cunnington copping the tag was unlucky considering they hadn’t tagged much all year and Duncan seemingly looking lame after quarter time.

Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 19:44

Ok No one else has done it yet so I'll do it…
How did we go this week fellas ladies and lads….it's GLOATY Time!….lol
I scored 2810, won Trigg's Happy Place League and both my AFL Fantasy Draft Leagues, bad luck to Patchy to the Max and those 2 guys in the Fantasy draft league who's asses I smoked lol.
How did you all fare?..let us know!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/08/2019 at 19:47

    Last week sucks! 🤬

      Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 19:58

      Yeah I hear ya mate, last week sucked for me too lost 6 semifinals…you scored well this week, huge actually, be proud bud.

    Maverick_ · 25/08/2019 at 19:48

    2908 russty!
    won all 3 leagues and most importantly the cash!
    Won the 'hey ho lets go' league too against pauline pantsdown who ever that is ?? haha
    had it all go right for me this week will hopefully climb a few rankings also.

      Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 19:57

      Great stuff Mav!…Pauline Pantsdown is a seriously good Coach, and gotta love a league named after a Ramones song haha

    Iamme · 25/08/2019 at 20:09

    Great score Russty and congrats on your wins. I made 2754 and beat the top team in my league. after just sneaking into the 8 myself. I Went Charlie Cameron as my last trade and POD last week it worked just fine…not so much today though lol

      Russty_ · 25/08/2019 at 20:15

      Cheers Lamme, great effort sneaking into the 8 and winning it all, that's extra satisfying I reckon…even with Charlie getting tagged this week.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 25/08/2019 at 21:13

    You got me by one Russty! 2809 for grand finals, which was enough to get the win in 6 out of 8 leagues! Finished 3,138 overall in the rankings.

      Russty_ · 26/08/2019 at 17:06

      Awesome work Pizza cat, 6 grand finals is massive mate.

s c tragic · 25/08/2019 at 19:48

Thanks for the pleasure of all comments and input for this year, congrats to all winners. Looking toward next year with much anticipation, anyone know highest score yet there was some very fine efforts this round. GO PIES !!!!!!

Well done to all coaches it was a even league all year, I hope that I get invited again next year.

    Wow. Nice score Sam. What was the highest?

      Sam_01 · 25/08/2019 at 20:32

      3030 I think, if I had of captained gawny I would of had it

        Iamme · 25/08/2019 at 20:52

        Wow, so someone smashed through the holy grail and scored 3030…..I thought 3.000 was just a legend and was nigh on impossible to achive lol

    Lekdog · 25/08/2019 at 22:29

    You gun mate!

      Sam_01 · 25/08/2019 at 22:44

      Cheers lek
      Thanks for the guidance from you and the gang throughout the year! Hopefully i can improve on the rank next year! Got close to top scoring the round multiple times with a 9th and 16th over the last 3 games 🙁

iLoveNMFC · 25/08/2019 at 20:10

Cheers for all the content this year lads, see you in 2020!

How did we all end up Overall now the seasons done?
I finished 3100 alot of thanks to all in the community as well as Lek Patch Damo and the team at the JR HQ. absolute legends!

Thanks for the year gents 🙂

    Lekdog · 25/08/2019 at 22:28

    Thanks for an amazing year mate! You’ve killed it in the site

    Russty_ · 26/08/2019 at 13:34

    Nice work with the rank this year Mav, finished 7235 this year so top 3% not terrible but not great, had a horror start so was playing catchup for a lot of the season.
    Thanks for all your advice and comments, and to the lads running things here. great job this year!

Blueprime · 25/08/2019 at 22:54

2863 and 538th. Thanks for all the input, fellas. Best site going.

    Lekdog · 28/08/2019 at 12:35


DavidC · 26/08/2019 at 05:45

Massive round. Scored 2703 and actually dropped a few hundred places to finish 4896th. Par must have been about 2800. Great year. Looking forward to the trade period now. Richmond are looking scarey.

JEL · 26/08/2019 at 11:14

An amazing finish. Small errors at the wrong time can have big impacts, and the Aussies will rue those missed chances at the end.
Hope they bounce back, as that type of loss can be deflating.

gator59 · 26/08/2019 at 12:33

Hi fellas by the looks of it a lot on this forum have had an EXCELLENT season and I would like to say you are all CHAMPS especially Lek,Patch,Baron and all that have put out weekly articles that's greatly appreciated…..It's because of this GREAT site we all have somewhere to hang out and try to help one another to get better at this caper.. I'm sorry I aint been around as much as I would like to have been this year but I have a few personal issues going on at the moment which I'll trudge through…..
To all that took part in my two Leagues Magnificent 7 and The Rat Pack I say thank you very much..

CONGRATS to Holt (2897) for taking out the Granny in Magnificent 7 in a great battle with Shake (2808)… Wow the scores for the round were insane

Also Congrats to Randomcliche (2815) for taking out the Granny in The Rat Pack against me Mrs…..Floki's FC (2749) which I was very impressed with the way she went about things this year ( I might have to take a few pointers off her on how to conserve trades)

Also to all the other Leagues that I participated in I thank you for having me .. It's been great fun and hope you all have me back next year
I had a bit of luck in winning two Draft Leagues,,, Out Of Your League and JR Legends

So now it's on to Triggs Happy Ending , Hope all can jump in and have some more fun
Cheers, Gator

    Russty_ · 26/08/2019 at 13:30

    Cheers Col you're a champ mate, missed having you around this year, hope to see you around more next season.
    Congrats on winning the JR Legends league…I got bundled out in straight sets in that one lol…well done to your Missus too, she had a good strong year.
    Trigg's Happy Ending should be fun, see you there bud.

      gator59 · 26/08/2019 at 14:46

      Cheers Russty the missus really showed me what it's all about this year and boy is she giving it to me.. Lucky there's a work shop outside where I can hibernate for the rest of the year… You had a good year too mate and keep up your posts they're always a good read plus you have good wisdom

    Holty01 · 26/08/2019 at 14:09

    What is this triggs happy ending?

      gator59 · 26/08/2019 at 14:41

      Trigga will set up a final series where we get to pick who ever you want but you have to follow the rules and guidelines very closely.. It's just a bit of fun and some bragging rights… Just keep an eye out for Triggas post and follow that

        Holty01 · 26/08/2019 at 17:12

        Awesome. If there ends up being a spare spot I will be keen.

          Russty_ · 26/08/2019 at 17:42

          Hi Holty, it's kind of like Derek's survivor group but just for the finals, there's no spots anyone can enter, you just have to post your team before the round so Trig can enter it into his spreadsheet.

          It's on page 26 if you'd like to scroll back to it and check it out
          Trigga's Finals Game

    gator59 · 26/08/2019 at 14:56

    Cheers Neil I started off the year really good hardly had to use a trade for the first few rounds and then M Crouch and Cognilio decide to get injured and I was on a downhill slide from that point on with premos getting injured .. trading my arse off and like you I was out of trades come round 18.. Oh well there;s always next year and might sneak a peak over the mrs shoulder every now and then… On the Saints and Dees we could merge and I think we'd still not make finals haha… Catch you in triggas happy ending and BBL

    hedski · 27/08/2019 at 11:41

    Onya Gator, see you in the happy ending. 👍

      gator59 · 27/08/2019 at 18:22

Russty_ · 26/08/2019 at 21:51

Pretty unbelievable win by the Poms Neil, shame for the Aussies Lyon fielded that ball like a 7th grade rookie lol
Great knock from Stokes, the innings of his life.

JohnDJ59 · 26/08/2019 at 23:40

I'm feeling very depressed after that finish, reminded me of how I felt after the 1987 preliminary, so maybe keep it to yourself next time Neil, you remind me of my dad.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/08/2019 at 19:34

HI Gang.

Just arrived back on the mainland.
Man it is cold miss the warmth already!

Looking at the comments it seems there is some interest in the Happy Ending.

Can we have a show of hands either via like or comment if you would like to participate in the Happy Ending Supercoach Final series?

It takes a bit of effort to put together the Happy Ending so just want to guage the level of interest?

I hope everyone can have a Happy Ending…

Cause then it will be on like donkey Kong!! 🐵

    dontblushbaby · 27/08/2019 at 20:05

      Definitely would be great if it was the real thing Neil! I’d take a Pies prem instead.

Nifty · 27/08/2019 at 23:03

For sure..

Russty_ · 28/08/2019 at 19:58

Saints have delisted Lewis Pierce and Billy Longer, so they can pursue Ryder for next season working in tandem with Marshall.
Also Armitage and Rowe got their marching orders, all good decisions I think, except maybe the Ryder one, reckon they should've maybe gone for a younger up and coming Ruckman, gotta think about the future more with such a weak list.

    gator59 · 29/08/2019 at 11:03

    Yeah it's going to be interesting what happens with the rucking department.. I think we should chase the All Australian Ruckman .. NDD would say Gawn .. But I mean Grundy who's out of contract.. And for all of the other rubbish we've got send them to Melbourne cause they need all the help they can get the poor buggers.. Maybe Richo could poach them to the Dees

      gator59 · 29/08/2019 at 15:39

      Fu$k I would jump at that trade NDD

        Russty_ · 30/08/2019 at 13:00

        Do we take the chance and roll the dice on Billings next year in our SC sides? Forwards could be very scarce next season.

          gator59 · 30/08/2019 at 18:28

          Might be worth considering … A .. Having a new coach and B.. He maybe playing at Melbourne

Russty_ · 28/08/2019 at 20:39

Doggies for the flag this year, anyone with me?….I think they're in believe mode.

    gator59 · 29/08/2019 at 11:05

    I'm with ya Russty.. If they get over GWS they'd take some stopping like 2016

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/08/2019 at 12:08

    How did Dunkley not get AA?

    Surely a bench spot instead of pendles??

    3rd in the brownlow 2019 and doesnt get a gig?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/08/2019 at 15:15

      Yep in 2018

      Predicting dunks to do the same in 2019 😉

      gator59 · 29/08/2019 at 15:51

      Agree with you Trigga,, Dunkley is an absolute gun… Even Treloar should've got a gig before Pendles

      Hi Trig, reckon Macrae must've just pipped him, due to him being good for longer, Dunks pretty unlucky though I agree, he should be there next year for sure.

    ask a Geelong supporter I want to see my boys win the flag but I agree the Bulldogs are flying my only question is does the whole dynamic for the Giants change now Coniglio has resigned it may see the Giants lift but I still think the Dogs should win that game.

Just like to take a moment to thank the community for a great season absolutely loved articles posted by the lads and the conversations on here is always insightful and good fun nothing better then talking footy. Finished my best ever rank this year 1870 so its been a good year I also won three flags in leagues!
I can't wait for next season and I'm looking forward to joining Derek's JR Survivor Group next season that sounds like a brilliant format and great fun!
