The Captains Table – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 7:30 am, April 15 2016

No shortage of great Captains choices last week.  Robbie Gray started the weekend off with a respectable 123 on Friday night.  Hannebery & Parker pumped out 125 & 129 respectively against GWS.  Saturday night saw Ablett score another 135 while Priddis (117) & Fyfe (115) duked it out in the WA Derby.  However they all paled into comparison on Sunday when Goldy (172) and Danger (166) decided to beast things up a touch.  Well done to those Coaches that had the patience (and cojones) to jump on the Sunday options.  Just quietly……they all had an invite to the Captains Table last Friday!

Table For Two – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 2:00 pm, April 14 2016

During the pre-season, ‘Thommo’s 2-UP’ was a wildly popular thread on SCT.  Seeing as our Thumbs Function is working (splendidly!) again, we’ll open it up to you, the SCT Community.

Which two players are you mulling over?  Which two players can you simply not seperate?  Type their names into the comments below and the SCT Community will point you in the right direction with the Thumbs UP / DOWN.

 

Just a few things to keep in mind before posting:

Movers & Shakers – Rd3

Written by Schwarzwalder on 11:00 am, April 14 2016

In the tradition of Motts’ Movers, ‘Movers & Shakers’ will look at those players making a big impact (or no impact) over a short amount of time.  We’ve finally got the 3-Round averages happening!  There are a few early season bolters on the list……question is: can they keep up this scorching form?  This weeks Movers & Shakers are (Player, Club, Current Price, 3-Round Average):

Burning Question – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 5:00 am, April 14 2016

Gray or Parker?

I’ve seen this question posed in many different threads over the last few days.  So let’s put it to rest for everyone………

Robbie Gray – 126, 129 & 123 from his first three outings.  Gray’s secret to success lies in his contested possessions.  He is #1 in the AFL for contested ball! (Averaging 19.33 per game till now!).   Just about a one-man-show in the Port midfield, Gray looks a top chance to finish in the Top10 SC-Midfielders for the season.  Next five opponents: GWS, GEE, RICH, BRL, CARL.

Luke Parker – 161,

Rare Gems – Rd3

Written by Schwarzwalder on 1:00 pm, April 13 2016

Having a Point Of Difference is one thing………it’s the Rare Gems that are really special.  Of course, we can’t have them all, but sometimes it feels like you’re the only owner…….you have a jet in your team that is producing great SC scores JUST FOR YOU.  Which Rare Gems have remained hidden from sight till now?

 

Corey Enright (GEE) $518 400 DEF – Everyone knows what Boris is capable of, everyone knows what he can do, everyone knows what he’s done, everyone knows he’s a Top 10 Defender.  So why on Earth do we keep avoiding him (year in,

Flavour Of The Week – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 12:00 pm, April 12 2016

G’day Supercoaches!

For those of us that are struggling (yep, me included!) early on, this week gives us a chance to further correct the mistakes from our starting line-ups.   Did you miss the boat on a cash cow for some reason?  Or couldn’t get a gun player in at their starting price?  This might be the last time you see them at an affordable price for a few weeks.  With Brad Crouch being ruled out for a further 2-3 weeks, many of us will have some tweaking to do.  If a mid-pricer like that isn’t rising in value then they’re unfortunately becoming a liability.

Poll – Brad Crouch

Written by Schwarzwalder on 9:00 am, April 12 2016

Three Rounds in and Brad Crouch is already struggling with injury.  Many Coaches ignored the warning signs over the pre-season and started with him anyway (this guy right here as well), refusing to pass up the ‘bargain’.  Having already missed a game on Saturday, Adelaide has officially ruled him out for a further 2-3 weeks.  Given Crouch’s injury history, the club is being over-cautious with the promising midfielder.  All well and good for Crouch……..but what about us Coaches?!?  Let the SCT Community know your thoughts on replacements for Brad Crouch.

Assuming we all had a clean slate right now (and cash wasn’t an issue),
