SUPERCOACH FINALS by TRIGGA HAPPY

Published by Trigger Happy 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 dais at the end of round 18. As usual a couple of big outs, non performers and outstanding performances helped decide the winner, 

But what about the rest of us and what now as the supercoach season has 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 (I know I did I just couldn’t keep up with the games so close together), 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 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 202 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 have created 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 if 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 position 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 put a “C” next to their name in the highlighted yellow or “golden” column.

4. Team Selection.

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

Enter Your Team Here

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 typing in your players name starting at row 2 as per rule 9 above.

i.e. if you want Shannon Hurn in your team start typing shann.. and Shannon Hurn 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 Hurn’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 to 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” in the yellow column next to the player you want to be captain for the week.  on the LHS next to the player’s 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 Herald Sun 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 a cashie if they feel the urge.

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

Thanks Rust. 👍

WTF

Thx Russty…was travelling from Darwin back to SA and had limited intermittent coverage with no computer access.
Also thx to Trig. Great concept that stretches a season.

Russty_

Safe travels mate, sorry but Lycett and Gray only look like netting you 70-ish or so, gray looked good earlier but stalled on the scoring.

WTF

All good mate.

Kat

Done. First time Ive entered but it sounds like fun. Look out for Rise Up Sainters.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Welcome Kat. Bit of fun to finish off the season.

Russty_

Let’s go Saints Kat!, bloody hope we can at least see a second game this finals…Doggies won’t be easy though, we’ll need to kick straight for a change.

Kat

Woohoo we did it Rusty. We live to fight another day. Got a bit close for comfort at the end but makes winning all the better. Good to see Hannebry earning his keep at last.

The Ranger

Nice one Trigga, I’m in.

TRIGGA HAPPY

To quote the crouching one:
Welcome.

David

I’ve had a crack at this. Do I have to save it myself or is that auto?

Russty_

Pretty sure it’s auto save Dave

demonsdelight

it does

TRIGGA HAPPY

That’s the way Dave.
Saves automatically.

hedski

Wooo hoo, cheers Trigga, I’ll enter a team later this arvo 👍

demondelights

demonsdelight

TheSir420

Love the idea and very much looking forward to this!

Shake n bake

Is it if you pick a player this week eg: Nic nat you cant pick him again the following week?

TRIGGA HAPPY

Depends if WC win this week 🤣
If they make it through rd 1 he can be selected rd 2. 👍

David

Yeah I don’t think it autosaves mate. I’ve done a team 3 times and each time I’ve checked an hour later and my team aint there. Yes I am logged in to google.
I just did it a 4th time and not even gunna bother checking later to see if it saved.
Great concept bro just a shame the thing dont work
Covid Cowboys
Stewart, Maynard, Danial, Rich
Gaff, Neale (C), Boak, Bont, Steele, Rocklife
Briony Grundy, NicNat
Dustbag,Hawkins, Ryder and Riewaldt

Russty_

Hi Dave, I see your team Covid Cowboys on the ‘Teams 3 ‘ sheet, maybe you were on the wrong sheet? It does autosave

David

Thanks mate. I did check and noticed that selwood got turned into Danger?
Same thing happened in the message I posted with my team as well 🙂

Russty_

It’s possible for other people to edit someone else’s team by accident so you have to really make sure you’re changing things in your own area and doublecheck your side that someone else hasn’t changed anything before the bounce.

Shake n bake

Stewart Short Maynard Hurn. Rockliff Danger Neale Adams Dunkley Steele. Nic Nat Marshall. Grey Martin Smith McInerney. C Steele 😀

TRIGGA HAPPY

Hey guys half time not a bad game of footy.
Anyone’s game. Typical low scoring but.
Don’t think anyone had jelwood.
While waiting for the footy to start have a listen to my grand final song on the latest post!
Then hit me up in the comments and let me know what you think?? 👍

Russty_

Hey mate, yeah good close start, Port starting to pull away now, I have the C on Danger this week!..he needs to move his ass

Russty_

Bloody rippa goal mate!

TRIGGA HAPPY

gator59

Russty_

Hi Trigga can you please change Treloar to Macrae.. I already have Houston and Gray from Port ,, Cheers mate

TRIGGA HAPPY

A couple of teams with 3 players from one team.

David

Poor old Simon Black has fallen a long from when he was a high paid premiership player and Brownlow medalist.
The poor bloke is selling stuff at cash converters! He must have a gambling or drug habit

Russty_

LOL…yeah I heard he might be a crackhead, drunken, gambling money wasting scumbag hehe

David

Just seen Jobe Watson on the TV. I reckon he might be hitting the booger-sugar pretty hard in NYC he looks older than his dad

David

Actually I might be wrong about Jobe being on the conk-candy I just remembered that he worked as a lab rat for Essendon cheating club for a few years earlier this century that could have something to do with the premature baldness and aging

David

Aarrgh I been feeling smug for 3 quarters at choosing blicavs over stewart. Just checked my team and I didn’t 🙁

Russty_

I picked Blics in my original team and then changed it to Stewart…aargh, I think the more fringe players score better in finals than the expected ones.

Russty_

How the fk is Hawkins on 97 points from 11 possessions and no goals?

Shake n bake

5 behind great efficiency!!

Russty_

Yeah ya can’t fault the consistency, if he’d aimed for 5 points he’d have 5 goals.

Shake n bake

Rockliff only good pick

Russty_

Rocky has been surprisingly consistent this year.

Shake n bake

Better side without Ablett makes them looks slower should have stayed in Melb l think.

Russty_

They all seem to be lacking the desperation needed to go all the way, they leave you with the feeling after you’ve watched the game ….why didn’t they try harder?
Back in the day Geelong were ruthless, and just smashed anyone in their path, but back then Ablett was at his peak, they had Scarlett, and Ling…Selwood was young.
They probably shouldn’t have brought Gazza back…and Gaz should’ve retired when he left the Suns.

demonsdelight

Preus might be a good fit at the cats Blicavs is too valuable in def

David

380 from my 4 before scaling

Phil

Great effort Trig. First game done. Do progressive scores appear or all at the end of the round?

TRIGGA HAPPY

All manual Phil. On hols at the moment, will update when I get home 2mrw.

Phil

You da man Trig

demonsdelight

Finally my comments are showing where was I dees unlucky?

Russty_

Didn’t realise you were having issues mate…that sucks, hopefully all sorted out now?

DEESNUTSRBIG

Marshall 13-10 : Yes
Walters 15-7 : Yes

Absolute joke CD Dusty on 13 pts at qtr he had 1 free against yet he had 4 clearances 4 contested touches bloody joke like Hawkins last night went at 43% and tonned up imagine it was 5 goals would have scored 300

TRIGGA HAPPY

If the Grand Final under lights is anything like that game be a ripping game. Tough, pressure, highlights and a LOUD crowd.
Quite a game.
Well done 🦁👏

Shake n bake

Hey Trigg just wondering if you entered my team l posted ytday? I had trouble doing it myself. 😀.

TRIGGA HAPPY

On hols. Will get it sorted 2mrw 👍

gator59

Hi Trigga can you please change Treloar to Macrae.. I already have Houston and Gray from Port ,, Cheers mate

Russty_

Great game Trig and although I’m happy for the Lions winning..now if the Saints can manage to beat the Doggies, they’ll then be up against the Tigers, who will probably destroy them by 18 goals LOL

Shake n bake

Dusty disappointing after half time. Had Short and the big O which was serviceable

Russty_

Yeah I watched the game after the fact Shake and Dusty seemed to be in everything, I would’ve thought he’d have scored huge with how many times they mentioned his name…couldn’t believe he only got 77

demonsdelight

Short and Rich helped but Dusty hmmm

Phil

How we all tracking. 934 inc captain

Russty_

I have no idea Phil, have a few crap scores in there so far so probably on the lower tier of the scale.

Kat

840 for me so far. Friday night was not a good one and Stewart as captain certainly did not help my cause. Recovered a little last night with Rich and Short helping, if only I had used one of their scores as my defence captain. Hindsight is a wonderfull thing

Phil

That hurts. I wanted Hawkins over Stewart which worked but Hurn came in so let’s see. I too had short and rich and they worked well. Marshall my pod in first game over Nic Nat.

Kat

Steele and Bont cancelling themselves out maybe. At least Hannebery earning his keep

David

YESSSSS
GO SAINTERS
472 from my 4 in that game thanks to Prince Patrick and Caleb the Small
Steele and McCrae very disappointing hopefully everybody had them and nobody had Pat and Daniels

TRIGGA HAPPY

Grundy is getting a 🛁

Kat

Just wondering how we go about selecting this weeks teams Will there be a new spreadsheet or do we clear our team and start again or some other method. New to this format
????

TRIGGA HAPPY

New article in the pipeline.
Just need the big dog to post it up. 👍

AFL-is-rigged

I’m undecided if Longs suspension is due to his race or club. I’m positive that if his name was Tom Lynch and his jumper was black with a yellow stripe he would have only got a fine.
