SO WHERE’S MY HAPPY ENDING?

By TRIGGA HAPPY. 

Paul Roos take a bow, turned a battler into a bruiser who finished top of the pops after an unbelievable last quarter where the Dees came from the clouds with Big Maxy sealing the deal with a kick after the siren. Talk about edge of the seat stuff. Infact Rd 23 had it all which would have had the big boys all smiles after the year they have had to endure.  

If I was the Blues or the Pies power brokers, I would be picking up the phone to talk to the great man.  

But now the home and away season has been run and won. What’s next?? 

Glad you asked.  

Congrats to those of you that were able to salute in the GF and stand on the winners dais at the end of round 23.  

But is that it? Can’t there be something more to keep our Supercoach juices flowing during the final series? 

Well how about a Happy Ending?  

Be nice in lockdown, wouldn’t it? 

I’ve been running this SC comp over the last 4 year in the finals for the JR crew and it seems to be get bigger and better every year. So here is it once again. 

Even if you had the year from hell (Russty), want some redemption (Shake) or had your best season to date (holt) you can still have a happy ending. Imagine being the best performer in the final 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 2022 AFL season. It worked for me. I had my best year in 2021 even managing to stand on the winners dias in a couple of grand finals.  

That’s right after 3 years of trying I was able to have the best happy ending last year with Dusty winning normie and helping me win the HAPPY Ending SC final series in 2020. 
This could be you. 

If the herald sun won’t come to the party, then please enjoy my own version of Supercoach Finals.  

The HAPPY Ending SC final series 2021. 

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 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 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/1W-uz8n14PEQ2K9zJkW_id97HmhAB6ABmCpfUoJBBvuk/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 5 sheets as I wasn’t sure how many teams we are going to get. Teams – Teams 4.  
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 Jake Lloyd in your team start tying Jake.. and Jake Lloyd 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 Jake’s case – Sydney 
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., COGS) 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 everyone else.  
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……

Thanks mate waiting for this thanks for putting the time and trouble into it I am sure it is well appreciated by all NDD

Russty_

Dees did well in the All Australian team Neil, just need a few things to go right now and it could be a momentous year for your lads. Go Dees for the flag this year!

demonsdelight

Salem was a tad unlucky as was fritsch Cant have them all

Russty_

The Saints would have 5 All Australians at the moment too, Steele, Steele, Steele, Steele and that other guy, Steele….maybe Marshall

gator59

Cheers for running this again Trigga

demonsdelight

Hey Gator the good thing is we dont have to select Saint players but the bad is only two dees Clarry and Gawn for me

gator59

Even sadder we can only pick 2 Bulldogs and 2 Lions and 2 swans and 2 giants and 2 power and cats and 2 bombers

Russty_

Awesome Trig, thanks mate…team entered 🙂
Seems to be a bunch of teams on page one with no TEAM NAME…I almost over-wrote a few of them looking for a spot. Put your Team’s Name at the top peeps.

Thanks mate be a bit of fun to round out the year. There were teams names there last night someone must have deleted them overnight. There is always one. 🙄

Russty_

I just looked and it looks like someone wrote over your Team’s spot mate?..sheesh the nerve of some peeps.

TRIGGA HAPPY

bit rough isn’t it?

Russty_

Someone’s changing people’s names on there, changed mine from spuds to potatoes, bloody bugger off whoever it is!

gator59

What’s happened to the team I entered?

TRIGGA HAPPY

this is the problem gator when you open it to everyone. there is always someone who wants to ruin it for everyone. if they don’t settle down and stop causing havoc we may have to abandon the happy ending as there will be too many disruptions.

Russty_

You have 2 there now Col…you hedging your bets this year? 😉

demonsdelight

you have to bear with our more senior cits Russty

gator59

We may have to set up a special brail and sign language page for NDD, Russty

demonsdelight

Russty_

When you two start going at it , it always reminds me of the two old blokes on the balcony on the Muppet Show lol

demonsdelight

The old fella started it Russty

Kat

There was a blank team space left btw Russtys team and a team with no name on Page 1 so have filled mine in there. Hope that is OK and I haven’t mucked anything up

Russty_

It still says Zac Kat, and did you change your name or was it someone else?

Kat

I am Mighty MeerKAT’s (changed my team name along with removing Zac Guthrie and shifting a few other players around) and he isn’t showing on my team sheet. Bit weird Let me know if he still is there. Thanks for the heads up though Russty

Keenbutclueless

Thanks Trig. Singapore Flyers locked and loaded! I notice Heppell is available as a defender. He picked up that DPP in Fantasy, but not SC.

holty01

Awesome Trigga.

Michael

Thanks for putting the time in to get this up & running trigga, still feeling the SC itch despite my worst year ever! I’ve entered my team on Teams3 tab (poloko48) but the errors for too many players on each team aren’t appearing (happy for you to leave it though…) + the captain formula doesn’t seem to be working. Have I done somethng wrong? Cheers!

Michael

Russty_

TRIGGA HAPPY

Not sure why some teams are over writing others as there are plenty of spots?
Best just to put in another dbb. 👍

Kat

I saw that column intially (I am the other side of Russty) and it just had a few players and no name so wasn’t sure id it was taken and so left it but with no name maybe someone didn’t realise it had been taken.

Hedski

Cheers Trigga, leaving it late but I’m in.
Also I lost my cash league GF by 27 points, still collected $150 tho.
Woop, Carna CATTAS

Wines ✅
Danger and Hawkins 🤔
Lycett 🤦

demonsdelight

averaged 80 so cant complain

TRIGGA HAPPY

6 team sheets – awesome stuff! plenty of people want a happy ending!
I noticed a couple of teams have too many players from the one team.
Parishables – you have 3 swans – lloyd, dawson and hickey and one cat danger.
To be fair on everyone I don’t think you would have chosen a cat in defence so will change hickey to stanley.
Underdogs FC – you have 3 bulldogs, 3 swans 1 power and 1 giant. As port have already played again to be fair I am going to change heeney to dixon.
please post below who you want to remove from the dogs and add from the giants before the game starts today
Macrae is a very popular capt choice with one team Eagles were robbed giving the capt armband to the highest scorer last night Mitch Duncan.
Fresh princess you have selected mills as capt – as he is not playing let me know below who you want to change him to and who you want as capt?
Enjoy the first week of finals.

Russty_

60 entries is great Trig!…one bloke had 2 captains I think, how do you resolve that one?

TRIGGA HAPPY

Whoever the system selects mate. Look for the mud larks to dominate tonight

Russty_

Dees looking good ay?…Gawny on 34 at half time…lift son!
Where’s your side bro?…did you enter your team again?
Jeez I laughed when I saw that name Aliir Aliir’s BBC….LOL

TRIGGA HAPPY

Thanks Trig much appreciated :), pretty crap week for me but at least I haven’t used my mid captain yet (probably should have) so hopefully can bounce back, how’d you score?

demonsdelight
