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.
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.
Sounds easy right? Well here are the 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:
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”
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:
Week 2 of Finals: (From 4 Teams participating – Maximum of 3 players from each team):
•12 Players consisting of:
Week 3 of Finals: (From 4 Teams participating – Maximum of 3 players from each team):
•12 Players consisting of:
Grand Final: (From 2 Teams participating – Maximum of 5 players from each team):
•10 Players consisting of:
So why not have a go. It’s free and who knows you may just get the bragging rights over everyone else.
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……
