Biggest SuperCoach Bargains 2012

by Motts on January 17, 2012

Either through injury or a poor 2011 these blokes are all fractions of their former prices. Which 3 players do you think represent the best value? If you’re not going to select any of them, which ones come closest to making your team?

None of these for me in a SC GnR strategy however in my “wife’s” SC team or DT I am considering Vez, Brodie Martin and Tony Armstrong as the midpricers that can go to the next level.

What hapenned to the underperforming 2011 Navy Blues Motts, other than the delisted big Irishman? I would have thought Kruze and Jamo would have been front and centre in this poll. No wonder Juddy’s had his shoulders reconstructed. Never needed that at the Blue and Gold when we delivered him a gratuitious Premiership and Normy! :)

Not sure about Krooz yet – he had a day out against the Swans when he came back last year but didn’t show his head much for the rest of the year. I rate him as a player, just not sure if he represents outstanding SC value. Jamo? Surely you jest.

We all know Juddy had to get his shoulder done after carrying your boys for so long. HE delivered YOU a premiership. HE delivered HIMSELF a Normie. Here endeth the lesson.

Juddy but not THE Juddy January 20, 2012 at 8:07 am

Off topic but how do we get an invite to the SCT leagues this year? I would really appreciate the opportunity to get a crack at the more learned portion of the Supercoach world.

Do people realise j mac is 346 yrs old?
He may be cheap but you get what you pay for when it comes to him.

I feel some people choose players like that because there 2 scared to take the risk on a untried rookie, the same people that bring in j mac, will no doubt have izzy falou in there side aswell!

Personally I think theres plenty of better options than some of those fossils that are “cheap” this year.

PS: I voted Lenny

Although I tend to agree with a lot of your posts D Mac, I totally disagree with your thoughts on JMac…. I think he’s got PLENTY to offer IN 2012 IMO!
On top of this, I’m very surprised that you would even put Izzy Falou in the same conversation as JMac as IMO, JMac proved himself time & time again… right up until the end of his career at the D’s!
Although I strongly agree with your young guns policy……..JMac is a lock on my bench for the 2012 SC season!

PS……Lenny Hayes is a true gun, big chance he could be in the starting 22 of the “Catta’s Clan” outfit for SC season in 2012

There’s no doubt about his heart and soul. And it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if he was leaving a veritable trail of trained down houses in his wake this pre-season.

My concern is his knee in a game situation. Once they’ve gone once they’re (insert large number here) times more likely to go again.

Yes and this is his second time around. Due to age and injury he won’t be making my team, I was warned last year that his knee may go again, I took a chance on him when he was cheap and -until he got injured- it was paying nice divs. Still worth consideration.

I don’t disagree with you Motts at all, but I didn’t get to the top 20 of SC last year (r14)…..albeit to get smashed by injury & poor choices in the last 4 rounds to finish in the low 2000′s by not picking guys like Waters 2011 & Malceski 2010 both coming back from severe injuries the year b4.
Hayes is an absolute heart beat of the Saints & if GG’s (as a Saints supporter thru & thru) is telling me he’s training the house down, he’s even a bigger chance of starting in my team in 2012

If it doesn’t work & heaven forbid he breaks down… I’ve got 23 more trades Mott’s! I personally think he’s worth the punt IMO!

pretty sure I paid $503k for him at the start of 2011 if memory serves me correctly…and I thought he was ok value then. I think he’s going to be around the $425k mark this year.

He’s rookie priced but has played a handful of games before being plagued by injuries. Word from the traps is he’s been training the house down, down at the nest.

2007 .. 19 games ave 107
2008 .. 21 games ave 97

He went stupid for 150 odd against Richmond in the middle of last year when they moved him forward for the match and he kicked a bagful but other than that his year was very mediocre.

He’s no longer a D/M DPP either. Around his price range I prefer Alex Silvagni or (surprise, surprise) Jordan Russell.

I have M.Clarke, Barlow, HMac and JBrown in my team at the moment.

On the watch list: Christensen, Lake, Didak, Porp, I.Maric, Callinan. If any of these guys become a lock during pre-season it will have a huge say in deciding my structure.

If you have a number of under priced players some are bound to work and others are bound to fail, therefore screwing your team.

As a North supporter this is my opinion on North’s rucks.

Petrie will play permanent fwd this year. Scott will be keen to try and get Goldstein and MacIntosh in the same team. I just don’t know where Majak gets a game as the ruck spots are taken, we’ve got tall defenders and same up fwd. His only chance would come through injury to an established tall player. Plus, he’s only rookie listed anyway so there’d have to be a LTI for him to get upgraded.

Arnold, Kyle, Frank, Mick (or whatever you wanna be called) Majak Daw, as Roo Bloke already said, will prob not play this year and was recently suspended for disciplinary reasons.

If stats are anything to go by then Callan Ward should struggle to have the same impact with the Giants as he did at the dogs. Last year all Suns players that were on an AFL list the year before actually lowered their SC average in 2011. Pass.

Cam Pederson had a decent year last year but isn’t a great choice this year. You’re better off selecting the next Cam Pederson, coz he’ll only cost you about $100,000, or just selecting a proven gun.

Jack Grimes???
