Enter Trigga’s Supercoach Finals Game Now!

Published by Lekdog on

By TRIGGA HAPPY. 

Well the home and away season has been run and won. Congrats to those of you that were able to salute in the big dance and stand on the winners dias at the end of round 23. How insane was that scoring in the final round?? 

But what about the rest of us and what now as the supercoach season have come to close or has it? 

How many of us want a Happy Ending?  
C’mon mind out of the gutter as this is the JR crew this can only mean one thing:  
Supercoach Finals!  

Even if you had the year from hell, want some redemption or had your best season to date you can still have a happy ending. Imagine being the best performer in the finals series, you would have the all sorts of bragging rights over the JR flock and this would surely stir the tank to get you up and about and to look towards the preseason and 2020 AFL season. Just ask Shake n Bake. Can he defend his title? 
 
So before you hire a slasher to mow that overgrown lawn, or end up in hospital from the mild heart attack you may have when you finally got to look at the credit card statement and see what the missus had been up to during the footy season. You will have to put that on hold because if the herald sun won’t come to the party then I’m going to create my own version of Supercoach Finals.  

So without any further ado here it is. 

 
Changes:  
Blank canvas. Start again. (Every Week)  
•No salary cap! That’s right you can pick whoever you like without breaking the bank as there is no bank as long as it is within the rules as set out below.  
• Can’t have the same captain each week. No vice captain. 
•No Bench  
Sounds easy right? Well here are the rules.  
 
Rules:  
1. Maximum number of players from each team as set out in rule 8 below. (with 8 teams playing week 1 of the finals that is 2 players from each)  

 
2. Players must be named in the supercoach positon that they were given during the regular season (i.e. Neale can’t be a forward)  

3. Captain selection. 

As there are 4 finals the captain must be selected from the 4 areas of the ground over the final series. So from a mid, fwd, back and ruck over the 4 weeks of the finals. Not necessarily in that order. It is up to each individual in what week they selected the captain in each position but must be from a different position every week. As per the rules of the regular season your captain pick will double their score each week. To select the captain there must a be a capt or “C” next to their name 

4. Team Selection. 

All teams must be entered into the spreadsheet via the link below: 

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qc6lVmdVRFGJ5XeX6CADi5DkDHImex0lJ4jnp3Z_Ai8/edit?usp=sharing

Teams must be complete before the first bounce of the first game in each week of the finals. Teams are locked in from this time with one exception (Rule 5).  

There are 4 sheets as I wasn’t sure how many teams we are going to get. Teams – Teams 3.  
If we need more I will just create more but will see how we go.  
 
 
How it works:  
 
In row 1 add your team name (orange text). This is the column next to or after the “team” column.  
When the team sheet is full – move onto Team1 spreadsheet etc.  
 
To add team:  

 I have put a team in as an example. 
 
Simply start tying in your players name starting at row 2 as per rule 9 above. 

 
i.e. if you want Elliott Yeo in your team start tying elli.. and Elliott Yeo should appear in the drop list select him from the list.  
repeat the process for the 4 defenders, 6 mids, 2 rucks and 4 forwards.  
 
The built in smarts:  
1. Once a player is selected the team next to the player will change to the team they play for in Yeo’s case – West Coast  
2. The teams are added up below to ensure that only 2 players are selected from each team  
3. You can only select a player from the drop down list in each position as per rule 2 above. An error will occur if you try and select a player who is not in that position.  
4. If more than two players are selected from a team an error will appear in red stating “TOO MANY PLAYERS”  
 
Captain selection:  
The captain is selected by putting a “C” next to the player you want to be captain for the week.  On the LHS next to the players name. 
This will then add the SC points you score for that player to your total.  

 
5. If a player is named in the team but is late withdrawal before the first bounce of their match (i.e. JJK) the player can be replaced before the game with a player from the same team in the same position. This change must be made prior to the match or if pressed for time posted on the JR website.  

 
6. Supercoach points to be applied to each player selected as per the heraldsun supercoach point scoring system. 

 
7. The highest combined total of points for the players selected in a team will be deemed the winning team for the week.  

 
8. The highest total number of cumulative points from players selected weeks 1-4 in the AFL final series will be deemed the Supercoach Finals overall winner.  

 
9. As the finals progress blank canvas every week. With players to be selected from participating teams as follows:  
 
Week 1 of Finals: (From 8 Teams participating – Maximum of 2 players from each team):  
•16 Players consisting of:  
o4 Back  
o6 Midfield  
o2 Rucks  
o4 Forwards  
 
Week 2 of Finals: (From 4 Teams participating – Maximum of 3 players from each team):  
•12 Players consisting of:  
o3 Back  
o5 Midfield  
o1 Ruck  
o3 Forwards  
 
Week 3 of Finals: (From 4 Teams participating – Maximum of 3 players from each team):  
•12 Players consisting of:  
o3 Back  
o5 Midfield  
o1 Ruck  
o3 Forwards  
 
Grand Final: (From 2 Teams participating – Maximum of 5 players from each team):  
•10 Players consisting of:  
o2 Back  
o5 Midfield  
o1 Ruck  
o2 Forward  
 
So why not have a go. It’s free and who knows you may just get the bragging rights over the rest of us.  
Good luck!  

No cash on the line but happy for someone else to run and organise if they feel the urge. 

Gone to my happy place. Be back in a few……

I'm looking to at least not finish in the bottom half this year haha

gator59

I"m a starter again.. Thanks Trigga for doing this again

hedski

Cheers Trig, I'm in.
Edit: Same problem as last year, I can't enter data onto spreadsheet from my phone so I'll post my team on this thread Thursday arvo 👍

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Probably time to upgrade the Nokia! 🤣

Russty_

My first mobile was a nokia 3310..very reliable…lol, brick.

Mikee

Cool, let's do it :)<img src="https://tinyurl.com/yxbbsslm&quot; width="1"/>

Russty_

Brilliant Trig, thanks for getting this going again, I got my team in.

dontblushbaby

Great work again, Thanks heaps mate

KeenButClueless

I am in China, so cannot download the Googledoc. Am I able to enter via this post? Understand if that’s a problem.

Geelong. Dangerfield Fwd. Kelly Fwd
Brisbane. Martin Ruck. Robinson Fwd
Richmond. Martin Mid. Houli Def
Collingwood. Grundy Capt Ruck. Crisp Def
West Coast. Gaff Mid. Yeo Mid

Essendon. Merrett Mid. Shiel Mid

Thanks

Russty_

What ya doing in China Keen?…Teaching English?…negotiating a new deal for Donald Trump?
Pretty ballsy of you to move there…can you speak the language?

KeenButClueless

Looking at the possibility of living here Russty. My wife comes from here and her family is still here. Not speaking the language is a barrier, but my English skills could mean work. I have tried to learn, but it’s beyond me. Living around it might help me pick up more. It’s super cheap to live, so a small income can be enough. We will see. Being the only westerner in a city of 15 million has its challenges.

Russty_

Hi mate, well good luck over there and with learning the language and all, you'll pick it up, your missus is probably your best source of learning, I lived in Japan for 3 years and picked up a fair bit, it's amazing how much you can learn when you have to haha.

True

Give it a rest mate there are more than 400,000 'westeners' in Beijing, you're not the only one

KeenButClueless

Why would you presume I am in Beijing? I am in Shenyang about 8 hours from Beijing.

Shake_n_bake

I’ll definitely have a go this evening.

My best mate is a pies man, he's bringing his kids over for a play while we watch/banter/sink a few.
Should be a cracker of a game.

Shake_n_bake

I’m working till 10pm tonight then changed my shift so I’m back at work at 6am so l can go!!!

Russty_

That's rough Shake may as well set up a cot there mate.

Shake_n_bake

Here again already Russty ready to go. Hope it’s worth it!!!⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️

hedski

Love the dedication Shake 👍

Russty_

Hey Hed, you'd have to be spewing you're losing TK, but hopefully get a good pick out of it.

hedski

Yeah, it was always on the cards Russty, still spewing tho.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

awesome team name!!

I''ll whack it in now for ya

hedski

Ha ha, I couldn't bring myself to pick him after I called it that!
Thanks mate, bring on the finals.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

A number of big names back for the FINALS.

Tomilson omitted, papers stamped already? 🙊

hedski

A smaller name that's back (Hutchings) is why I picked Heppell over Zerrett…..

gator59

A few teams have not picked a Captain

TRIGGA_HAPPY

As no one picking a capt from the game tonight will post who is missing tomorrow to allow them to pick a capt b4 2mrw nights game.

Just the kinda guy I am. 🤣

Russty_

You're a gent Trig…although I wouldn't mind if you didn't tell them lol

AuroraBorealis?!

Sorry mate, completely forgot about that, any chance you could chuck the 'C' on Danger for me? Team name is Scorpions FC, cheers

Russty_

26 teams this year still a good turnout although there were over 30 last year, good luck to all competing!…should be fun, extends our addictions a bit longer haha

Russty_

Gee Yeo's looking like a good choice…NOT!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Cripps top scorer at half time 72.

Looked like how far weagles but bombers lifted abit to make a game of it.

David

uuurgh!

It’s a shame that we have to have 2 bombers. My 2 have about 25pts between them at half time,.Kipfler Merret what an over rated wally he is

Holty01

Hey all. Can someone put the C on Neale for me. Cant seem to do this right now.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

First final in the books – no real surprise there, though pretty meek effort by the bombers – 10 goal final margin.

The scores have been updated for the first game with Cripps being the top scorer kicking 4 snags as well as having over 20 possessions – unfortunately non of us had him our team – 145! could have been an awesome pod.

I noticed that a few teams have not selected a capt. I will give you till first bounce tonight to let me know who would like as Capt (via a comment below) and I will update the spreadsheet.

Teams currently who don't have a captain selected:

Rabbits19
Sassy Sasquatch
Scorpions FC
Team Holt
The Bont is god
Pranau FC

Looking forward to tonight's game should be a belta.

Pranav

I put Whitfield as C I can see the C on left of Whitfield which looks about right.

Rabbits19

shit thanks mate will do now

Rabbits19

forgot my login details

Rabbits19

oh shit i had tipuwungi as captain. possible to reverse and make Grundy Captain?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Thought that was an oh shite moment. 🙊

Grundy it is.

Rabbits19

thanks mate thank gawd

Rabbits16

got my account back on

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Top 3 – 2018 Happy Ending

1. Shake n Bake
2. Deafness (Defying)
3. Borealis

Russty_

You smashed it in the first game Trig, miles ahead!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Thanks mate but just timing, early days.

Most teams has 1-2 fwds or backs I had 3 mids play last night. 🙈

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Menegola in
Stanley out.

hedski

See below.

hedski

Ok Trig, I'm in a spot of bother, my ruckman Stanley is a late out but there isn't another listed ruckman in the cats team I can swap him to.
Do I munch a donut or can I swap Stanley for Nank and Dusty for Gablett to keep team balance?
Go cats.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

LOL that's a new one

Whaddya reckon gang give hedski a break? 😉

hedski

Ha ha, trust the unexpected rule break to happen to me.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

We will have to add that to the rules above:

"The hedski rule"!

Russty_

Yeah give the kid a break otherwise he'll be crying in his beer all night lol

hedski

I've already started the way this game is looking.

Russty_

Yeah sheesh, they better pull their fingers out in the 2nd half, good luck mate.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

I'd like to but you need to replace hooker with another defender.

Smith always attacks so would be a fwd! <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🤣" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f923.svg"&gt;

oops

Saints midfielders will offer some value next year Ratten is a brilliant midfield strategist and he'll be getting a couple missing puzzle pieces very soon. Those midfielder draft picks from a few years back might explode in 2020

Russty_

Welcome oops..know what you mean about your team, I have bloody Kelly and he's dropping a big spud so far, agree on the Saints points, hoping they have a better year than this one was, couldn't get much worse lol

Russty_

Yeah I'm hoping he does well, he'd be stoked to get a second chance at Senior Coaching, I liked Richo as a bloke but not so much as a Coach in the last few years, we just never improved our list that much or our accuracy at goal…so frustrating to watch!
He played in specs?…that would've been hilarious to see that, no contacts in those days?
I'd love to see the Saints have a shot at finals next year, it's been too long.

Russty_

It's just dumb luck half the time mate, last night I scored 347 and tonight I got 640 odd with the C on Danger.
It's all cumulative scoring so you'll have a chance to catch up. Last year I did terrible in this game haha

Russty_

Tim Kelly 3 point first quarter ugh!…wish I'd picked anyone else now…looking a bit ominous for the Catters.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

NOT alone there mate

Most have TK except traitor boy.

Russty_

I actually left him out of my initial team cause I thought well he's leaving anyway so probably doesn't care that much what happens. Then decided to bring him back in, should've stuck with the gut.

Shake_n_bake

3 late goals hurt. 🤬

Shake_n_bake

On edge still Neil

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Grundy on 90 at half time!

Those with a C next to his name – cha ching.

Stewart and Howe on same score. Pretty much spot on. They have been rocks in def.

Russty_

I'll take Danger's C score thanks Dangergun.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

300 nice!

Shake_n_bake

⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️

Russty_

Congrats Shake, nice game from your lads tonight.

AuroraBorealis?!

Cheers to the Hawks, appreciate youse getting us into a prelim xx

AuroraBorealis?!

Jeez, lucked out on my picks tonight; Danger C, Grundy, Pendles, and Stewart, anyone else run with this combo?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Nice work AB.

I reckon most of us had danger/TK combo.

Russty_

Trig, you're smashing us all and your Cap hasn't even played yet, you know you're not allowed to win your own game right?…there'll have to be an investigation lol

TRIGGA_HAPPY

NDD leading the way mate.

First one to hit the 1000 mark.
8 players impressive stuff! 👍

Russty_

Not quite AB I had Kelly instead of Stewart, 680 odd for you?…awesome

AuroraBorealis?!

Not a bad result, just realised a picked Zaharakis for some reason *facepalm*

I really should have made this team sober

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Another final done and dusted pies advance.

Why didn't cats play with that pressure and intensity all game instead of just last qtr? When the heat is on you are more hurried make more mistakes. Too safe. Well done pies.

Grundy dominated the ruck, danger tried his guts out and the interceptors in Stewart and howe/Moore were superb all game.

Scores have been updated, kudos to those that had the C on Dangers neck as he was the top scorer for the night with a mouth watering 147.

I have now added a graph that shows how everyone is tracking and a graph of the top 5 leaders. This can be found under the scores tab

The old Demon Neil leads the way with a 1000 points! Damn impressive for 8 players.

Can anyone catch him? Only time will tell.

Doggies/ Giants next up. Can the doggies have another fairytale?

Can't wait to find out …

Russty_

Great work with the update list Trig, much appreciated, gonna be some good footy today, bring it on! 🙂
P.S, reckon you'll be catching Neil in this game 🙂

hedski

Too good Pies, wanted it more, straight sets for my cats I think, pathetic.

Russty_

Should come back strong Hed, don't despair mate.

Shake_n_bake

Got tight there at the end!! I thought we could have been further in front at half time but let our self’s down in the last few minutes. You get to live another day at least Hedski.

Russty_

Dangit the Bont being tagged by Deboer…thought it would've been Macrae for sure.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Having a big qtr rust!

Russty_

Yeah mate he seems to be handling it ok…what a gun.
Whitfield's looking good for you mate.

Pranav

I tried swapping Daniel out on the google sheet but it’s not working for me. Is it possible if someone who can edit the sheet put lapinski in place of him?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

No worries pran will do

Pranav

Thanks mate team name is pranav FC and it’s on page 2.

Russty_

Frogs Legs, Eiffel Tower and Gerard Depardieu 🙂

Russty_

Not sure if this is Maths or English, is Google translator broken?

Russty_

Shit mate how can you only be getting 0.5 mbps with NBN?…I'm in a southwest rural W.A town and get 45 mbps, you should complain bigtime, that's worse than old bloody dial up speed.

Russty_

Just keep complaining, and tell them that's not even an acceptable adsl speed let alone nbn, they obviously haven't even wired up your local street exchange to the main exchange yet, for them to be charging you for actual nbn is criminal.
My area was upgraded with the street exchanges to the main exchange but I'm still on old copper wiring from my house to the node and am now getting 45 mbps, previously on adsl I was getting about 4.5 mbps if I was lucky…took hours to download a foxtel movie.

Russty_

Looks like it's over for the Dogs, shame, I thought they'd do better this year.

Russty_

I'm going for the underdogs too, hope they do better than the dogs did.

Russty_

Fan Footy's crapped the bed, no one there posting any live scores.

Russty_

Oh yeah thanks Neil, Footywire's got scores up, disappointing about fanfooty

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Backup now

Zork leading the way 🙂

Russty_

Shame about Dusty and Houli…spudding it up, Dusty's the clanger king.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Hodgy on the other hand just born to play finals!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Got houli as well, hoping for a big 2nd half, his other two partners in crime vlastin and grimes going well.

Robbo and Mcbags two great wing men for the lions.

But boy can the tiges hurt you.on tunmover or rebound.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Brill qtr of football by the tiges. Enter dusty.

Russty_

He would've gone 150 without all the clangers but still did ok, I actually found footywire better than Fanfooty, it has the sc scores and the stats on the same page and without all the bickering comments with those regulars in the chat.

KeenButClueless

Hi Trigga. I am back in Singapore and now have access to Googledoc. I notice my team is not in. I tried to submit on Googledoc, but it wouldn’t let me – is view only, and when I ask for sharing requests it says sharing requests have been exceeded. Is it possible for the team I posted in this thread be included? Thanks

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Sorry keen completely missed that post in now. 👍

KeenButClueless

Thanks Trigga!

Russty_

Good to see you in there Keen, 31 participants this year is awesome, makes it tough to win.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Round 1 of the AFL finals for 2019 is now complete.

All scores have now been updated.

At the end of round 1 it is the Flukes who leads the way. Was it a fluke we shall see as the season progresses. He scored an impressive 1821.

Neil the old Demon is close on his tail with last years winner shake n bake not far behind. He is perfectly positioned to defend his title.

Lek is also right in mix. Some happy dude helps to shape the top 5.

Will post the 2nd round sheet tomorrow for you guys to fill in your team.

Gone to my happy place be back in a few …

00P_s

Yehaa not coming last 🙂

Russty_

Pick the right captain and a decent team and you'll be back in with a shot oops.

SamuraiPizzaCat

Well done The Flukes and Trigga – equal first place! This happy ending is quite enjoyable!

Russty_

Well done bud top scoring..(equally) for the week, I've dropped back a bit, I need to have a good week this week to stay in with a shot, tough competition in here with so many good coaches.

Russty_

Hey bud thinking the same thing, that's why I made it a fwd in the 1st week, a back this week then mid and ruck left for the last 2 🙂
Not sure is Brissy will beat the Giants though, they played pretty well over the Dogs.

Russty_

How good were the Aussies last night in the Test…Hazelwood and Cummins bowled great and really set us up for the win.
Steve Smith is a massive oddball but still batted us into a winning score under difficult conditions.
Warner has become Broad's favourite Bunny and should be dropped for the last Test I reckon..his technique isn't correct against the angling into him around the wicket deliveries, Broad's got his number bigtime!… Harris isn't cutting it either and should probably go too.
Team would look a lot more solid with Smith and Labuschagne opening I think, shuffle the order around for the last Test if we win this one, couldn't hurt.

Russty_

Sorry bud but can't see the poms escaping out of this one like last time, I reckon Warner's done for this series mate, he's got no idea against Broad and is floundering.
Yeah Finch could do the job I think in the last Test, but it's pretty much a done deal now anyway so maybe they should give Warner another chance to do something.

Derek

Warner needs to be dropped for the next test.

Give Bancroft another chance.

Broad clearly has worked Warner out. Give him a break so no more damage is done and freshen him up for the Paki's and the kiwi's back home.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Tobias you tool! 🙄

Russty_

He could escape with a fine maybe but you're right mate what a tool risking his spot in the final next week.
Bad Toby returns!
Speaking of tools, I reckon they should fine players 10K for staging like Grimes did…need to stamp it out of the game once and for all…a 1k fine is nothing to players making that kind of money.

gator59

10K and a week Russty and I think that might make them think twice about staging

Holty01

Give him 3 weeks. Maybe missing the entire finals series might make him learn. Dirty dog act the old eye gouging.

Shake_n_bake

At least 2 Holty miss the pies game if they throw!!

Russty_

He got off with just a fine..$7500, ouch , lucky boy!

Russty_

I heard the horrible news about 20 minutes ago and have just been in shock, R.I.P Danny you were a true Saints legend and ripping bloke, gonna miss seeing his antics on Bounce every week, such a sad loss for his family and the footy world.

Rabbits16

So there is now a horse racing Fantasy section for the horse punters out there…. check it out… select 10 horses and 1 jockey for your stable… join my league if your interested in figuring it out…. 759428
