PODCAST | Marsh Series 2: Electric Boogaloo wrap-up

Published by Patch on

Lek, Patch and Damo sit down and dissect all the action from the second week of the Marsh Series and what the big talking points are.

From changing teams, answering community questions and looking at mid-priced Essendon forwards, the resurgence of Kade Simpson and why West Australians are all bad people for calling potato cakes potato scallops.

The lads also make a wager over #BrayshawBreakout and assess the Tim Taranto situation.

What did you make of the second week of pre-season, community?

You'll hear me sing Breakout on the next podcast. That Andrew Brayshaw podcast will be a full broadway stage show, get ready for it.

Hey Community,

Going to start a cash group (not league), where the entry fee is as small or as much as you like (more or less). It gives you an opportunity to get involved in winning some cash if you like the idea of chasing overall rank, but don't seem to get close enough to get a sniff.

If you would like more details then send me a message on twitter @mattforrest29, on instagram @matt.forrest or send me an email at: [email protected]

Alternatively, reply here with easiest way to be in contact and I'll message you.

Love you guys xx

FozDaddy

hedski

I'm keen Foz, will email you in the next few days.
How many dollarydoos are we talking, and will it be a winner takes all or tiered payouts setup?
Cheers.

FozDaddy

easiest way to look at it would be a tiered payouts-type setup.

Say there were 10 contestants, 3 x $10 entrants, 5 x $20 entrants, 2 x $50 entrants

1st place: $10 entrant. They would receive $10 from every entrant.
2nd place: $20 entrant. They would received up to $20 from every entrant (unless they entered less), minus what first place won. This ensures a slight payout for second, without first place losing some of their prizemoney.
3rd place: $50 entrant. They would receive up to $50 from every entrant, minus what first and second won.

If a $50 entrant won, then everyone who entered for less would pool to go to that winner.

Lekdog

Fozdaddy we gotta get you an intensedebate account

Billioux

Hey FozDaddy, i interested also. I will email you. Cheers.

Can now put "name mentioned on Jock Reynolds Podcast" on my resume #BrayshawBreakMyTeam

Yewwwwwww

Jorg Ancrath

Is Naismith locked at R1 for Sydney? If so, I'm interested….veeeeery interested.

Captain_Risky

He's currently my R2 as well.. I know I shouldn't but it makes the rest of my team look much better.. If he's playing he's staying!

Jorg Ancrath

Yea I reckon. Should average 80 at worst. That's 40 down on Gawn, assuming hes fit and firing. I can take the $400k saving and run a 6th uber premo mid, who will make up the difference . Or 4 keepers up front, meaning I don't have 30s dropped on me by some dodgy rook im forced to play. Just gives so much more flexibility.

RazzleDazzle

Naismith at R2 is so tempting if Gawn isn't fit when you can run Heeney at F4 and still go 5 deep in the mids. Someone please stop me

DEE

hmmm… who is the R1 in Sydney?

DEE

Sinclair… I think? He’s not injured is he?

Jorg Ancrath

He's playing forward, I think. Need to see a team with both of them in there.

Patch

you're all mad and Max Gawn will eat you for breakfast. Can I remind everyone of the 18 times we can VC/C Gawn and Grundy as a duo?

JohnDJ59

If Max plays well in the Dees next game, he is a lock for me. He's been in my side from go, it would be nice to boost my other lines, but there would always be the problem of when do I get Max into my team.

Russty_

Yeah John good to see him named, hope he's good to go and gets plenty of time on ground..I've had English up until now but Grawndy is the ultimate combo!

Russty_

Not to mention the 5 scores in a row last season of 144 and higher, and his 212 in round 23.

Patch

Exhibits A-F right there

Russty_

Locked but probably doing a good amount of sharing Jorgy..he looks pretty keen to have a crack this season though.

DEE

Neale or Fyfe higher average for 2020?!

Derek

Fyfe is in his declining years. Still don’t think is elbow is 100%. Neale can improve on last year.

NoLanguage96

He just won a Brownlow. He's not declining. LOCK

Jorg Ancrath

Fyfe just recorded his best year, SC wise. Played 20 games. Not sure he's in decline.

Jorg Ancrath

Best in 5 years, I should say.

Derek

How old is Fyfe?

Derek

28, thought be was already 29.

His best years were 2015 & 2014, a while ago now.

Jorg Ancrath

Not too long turned28. I know it's not in the so called sweet spot of 25 to 27, but Dangermouse had his best season at a similar age. Special players tend to break the mould.

Derek

Agree. The question was to split Fyfe and Neale? I think the age thing is the decider

I think both will be top 8

Jorg Ancrath

Oh, in a two horse race I agree. Neale could even go bigger this year I think.

On another note, what do you think of Tom Mitchell. I keep coming back to him despite the risk. Even going at 50% intensity in the JLT, the ball seemed perpetually attracted to his hands. Reckon he knocks out a 120 without trying most days.

Derek

I am happily picking him up second round in my draft leagues. Gift from heaven. In Classic I’m in the wait and see group. See how his kick to handball is and his TOG. Have a feeling we will see the Chad in the guts early while tich gets going.

Patch

I'm team Neale, Jorg. Fyfe's always been a bit touch and go to get to 22 games and has flagged stepping back from the crash and bash of the midfield this year. Lachie's the safer bet for mine

Jorg Ancrath

I've got both in my team. Figure if he floats forward he'll just kick and extra 2-3 goals. #fyfeisstilllife

Russty_

I'm gonna start Neale and hopefully be able to bring in Fyfe a bit later..after I see how much forward time he plays and how he's scoring.

dontblushbaby

With Taranto sidelined 4 -5 months surely Cogs gets his Mid minutes now and not in the FWD line as the coach muted not long ago?

Jorg Ancrath

Seems a decent punt. He's captain too, isn't he. Shouldn't be short of motivation to turn those 60 point quarters into a full game.

Derek

He is now too much value to ignore.

Cotchinator

GWS have a VERY high internal rating of Tom Green so he may be given the opportunity, although we know how difficult it is to break into their side (and stay there).

FearTheBeard

Lads,

Doherty/Sicily & Tracca

Lloyd & J. Steven

Also would you go Cogs or Oliver for M5?

Thanks people 🙂

FearTheBeard

Sorry could even go Stewart/Laird with Tracca? just short on lloyd.

Patch

Oliver for M5 every day of the week, and Sicily and Petracca for mine

Derek

Oliver M4, Cogs M5

Both are too much value to ignore

Holty01

Cogs for me Beard. No DeBoer tag.

Tibor

Hard to go against Oliver. I reckon his 2019 was a fair bit short of his 2018, yet he just seems to smash out big scores. Looks fitter and better than ever and more likely to go up a level than fall back. Gets pinged for a few frees against sometimes hangs on a tick too long to his tackles, g3ts called for throwing a bit when replays show he has quick hands @nd handballs are legit. Look for his frees against stat and therefore scores to get a bump…

JEL

Split the difference pricewise and take Zerrett as M5?

Derek

Hardwick takes a lot of the Hawks kick ins.
At least 50/50 with Sicily.

Hardwick is likely to miss 3 months.

Boost for Sicily.

Russty_

Sicily looked ok but still made some silly mistakes, just rust probably…at least he didn't turn into an angry backlashing flog like in past times. I reckon he's a decent choice for this year, I just don't have room for him.
Ceglar really benefitted from Bigboy mostly playing back.

Captain_Risky

Acres out,…. Brayshaw in …. I feel like I'm sinking into Mid priced madness. Just need a few more rookies in the Fwd line to save me!

Marvin

I got a few guys from the site last year to fill a SC keeper league so just wanted to hunt them down again and check they are keen to claim their team and go around again and also get some details to confirm a draft time. As draft is such a shitshow most of the teams have already been assigned to the original owner where they have registered for supercoach 2020. So can the following guys if they see this either a) jump in the chat part of the supercoach league and post a comment to confirm or reply below letting me know if you aren’t going around again. Cheers
– Colin the instigator
– Neil – gaffs whack
– king Lear
– Ethan – coffee black
– Jon – telescopic Cox

I’ve already got you down misty pieman

Cheers if you could let us know ASAP that would be great

EndoftheWorld

Damo – you were spot on about potato scallops. NSW agrees with you and we all know that's all that matters in Australia – cause the harbour and the opera house.

Patch

you're on a one-way street to BANville, population: The Stupid States. #Vicxit #TateyCakes4Lyf

EndoftheWorld

Cameron – so good the Swans went and got Knoll in the midseason draft last year. Is Dean Cox this bad a judge of talent?
Gould – uphill battle to make round 1. With Mills, Rampe and Jordan Dawson playing that role, might only get in if Dawson goes forward with Buddy and maybe Reid out.

Derek

Or Mills goes into the guts

hedski

JOCKS JUNGLELAND DRAFT.
I've gotta say that was the most unenjoyable time on sc I've ever spent.
Around 170 picks went in 30 minutes.
I didn't even have a chance to scroll through any players before I chose (since we didn't know beforehand who had been dropped from other teams from last year), seemed like we had 10 seconds per pick, I think I actually selected 3 players out of the 10 picks I got.
Not sure if every one else had a pre draft order but last year I had time to choose
Rant over, now I'll just have to kill McEvoy, Cruiser and a few other shit picks that I didn't select.
Peace out.

Russty_

I know what ya mean mate, it was all a bit rushy, most guys weren't picking anyone cause they just kept their team from last year, I thought we had to dump 10 so I did last week, anyways, I think I ended up with a better team than I started with, you can swap Cruizer etc out now for a waiver wire pick or wait till the free agents come up.
What was up with the order too?…I kept having to do 2 picks in a row.

hedski

Yeah I dumped 10 also, didn't end up to bad really just venting a bit, already hit the waiver trades.

gator59

I actually dumped 12 from last year that's how crap my team was

gator59

I think the actual keeper league in Jocks Jungleland was not a great spectical.. I'm sorry Hedski but we all had a minute to pick.. I had a rough list to work from but they mostly went pretty quick.. Next year I think I'll make a new side from scratch and no keeper League which I think makes more sense.. Actually your team looks ok with about 16 to 17 keepers compared to mine with about 14 keepers

hedski

All good Gator, was just shitty I didn't really get to pick properly, maybe cos I was using my phone.
My sides not all bad, please don't think I'm bitchin at you, just seemed like we had a bit more time last year.
Cheers for running it again, plenty of time to trade spuds out 👍🍻

gator59

All good Hedski..I'm sure we'll all be trading.. I might get rid of my ruckman

hedski

Ha, got the bite from NDD.

Derek

I thought it was ok. I had dumped about 8 players this afternoon, but when the draft started they were still in my team, but in the 3 mins countdown they all dropped to the free agent list.

60 seconds isn’t long. You need to use your filter buttons quickly.

I’ve ended up with a half decent team if it was 5 years ago. Ablett, Selwood, Cotchin, Heppell, Franklin, Hurn, Simpson, JPK, Westhoff, NicNat, RGray just to name a few.

Hope there is some good fair trading done

gator59

Hi Derek you've ended up with a very handy side

Russty_

He's certainly ended up with a very old side haha

Derek

I might have to see who can trade me Heath Shaw

They don’t need to play every week in draft

Derek

When did you get Titch?

hedski

Had him last year and kept him.

dontblushbaby

Swans play Norf on Monday, hopefully LLoyd & Dawson play so we can get a read on their roles

I have Lloyd ,no Houston atm ,however he is another we need to get a gauge on his role when Port plays the Bulldogs on Saturday, with Wines out I could easily bring him in

Derek

Houston playing mainly midfield. That’s what you want from a defender.

Derek

However, Houston now has a round 11 bye since the China game called off. Something to consider

Russty_

Yeah he was my guy Neil, the one I didn't really want to get rid of lol..swap ya T-Mac for him?

Russty_

Cool propose it if you wanna do it, cheers mate

Russty_

I'm taking both Rocksta but if I had to pick, Houston, for the mid time.

Hart attack

Hey lads
Looking for a competitive league or 2 to join

Alternativley this is one you could join 656454

Derek

Teams for this week look like proper footy teams.

Really looking forward to this weekend.

So many decisions to make.

Russty_

Yeah Derek, this weekend will answer a lot of questions about who's for real and who's fool's gold.
My team looks like a dog's brekky at the moment, I need some guidance!…lol
Does Rivers not playing again mean that he isn't in consideration for best 22?
I've had English in my team for the last 2 weeks, now Gawn is playing he's back in..hope he goes well and plays most of the game.

Derek

Docherty and Petracca are the two I’ll be watching close. I can fit one of them in.

I also want to see Lloyd and Whitfield justify their price

I’ll be looking at centre bounce attendees

And rookies. Lots of rookies…..,

My team has surprisingly stayed same. Houston took Sicily’s place a few weeks ago

Russty_

I reckon Doch's a lock regardless, he might start slow but should come good, Petracca needs another look though and needs to back up what he did last week, otherwise there are other options.
I'm leaving Lloyd and Whit out of my starting squads for now..reckon they could be acquired later on.

JEL

Is there a JR group this year?

hedski

707848 👍

JEL

Thanks hedski

Russty_

Looks like Gawny and Titch are just fine…68 and 63 at half time.
No worries mate!

Russty_

Looks like they're resting Gawn for the 2nd half,..will he be right for round 1 Neil?

Russty_

Yeah he looks like a good young Ruckman, might not get a chance for 3 or 4 years though, do you think he'll hang around to find out?

Shake n bake

Didn’t think Titch was worth his 111 from his 24 touches. Just got to look out for champion data’s love child.

Matze

Macpherson or Dev Smith at F3 with Whitfield and Dawson F1/2? Thoughts?

Lekdog

I like MacPhearseome

silversovereign

Does anybody know how the saints and power bye in round 11 will be treated for SuperCoach purposes?

Lekdog

I suspect it'll just be a normal round

silversovereign

I’m guessing the same Lek.

Russty_

Hi SS, it's best 22 and no extra trades for round 11, you'll need to cover any outs with your bench.

silversovereign

Cheers rus

FearTheBeard

Lads what ya reckon :

Laird, Houson (can go Sic), Docherty, BZT, Brander, Gould, Greaves/Keane, had to take 102k as im 3k short of a 117 player lol to make this squad work only annoying thing.

Neale, Cripps, Bont, Cogs, Brayshaw, Rowell, Greene, Pickett, Robertson, Mahony, Budarick

Grundy, Gawn, Cameron

Whitfield, Dusty, MacPherson, Steven, D Smith, Taylor, Rankine, King.

Pretty happy besides that d8 that I can't get a rookie likely to get a go.

Tossing up not starting gawn for jacobs and then 300k into another mid premium but brayshaw could be worth it to lock the key on Grundy&Gawn.

Only other option was maybe Bont down to Oliver to allow that d8 to become starvic

Thoughts?

JayTee

Hey community,

Doing my head in with no rookies (like everyone else) and can't see any other options but to go mid-price mad this year.

Would love thoughts on this team:

D: Crisp, Houston, Docherty, B-Zerk, Starcevich, Brander (Worrell, Gould)
M: Neale, Cripps, Bont, Danger, Oliver, Dusty, Rowell, Pickett (Robertson, Budarick, Rivers)
R: Grundy, English (Comden)
F: Whitfield, McPherson, Dev Smith, J Steven, Rankine, King (Xerri, C. Taylor)

My concern is not enough top 10 players come end of the season and cash generation, but if the rookies aren't there…
