Weekend Summary – Adelaide v Port Adelaide

Written by Motts on 9:41 am, February 16 2010

K Cornes ($480,700, 90.50) – both Kane and his unfortunately named brother have produced prodigiously in the past but regardless of what the Little Black Book says about them I’d look elsewhere for better talent. Kane’s 83 on Saturday afternoon would seem to confirm this.

T Boak ($439,700, 82.78) – you need look no further than young Travis as a replacement for Kornes in your midfield. In his 4th season this year he’s starting to come into his own and I think is due for a breakout year. Kornes’ 83 came with a DT score of 103. Trav’s 83 came with a DT score of 68 suggesting he used the ball a hell of a lot better which in SuperCoach is richly rewarded.

Weekend Summary – West Coast v Essendon

Written by Motts on 11:55 am, February 15 2010

Sat down and watched all 4 NAB Cup games on the weekend. I don’t care it counts for nothing, I’m just so happy to have football back in my life. Saturday afternoons spent watching live statistics while chatting with Duck and BOB over IM and maybe having the odd punt on the nags with the online account are just around the corner. Yeeeeeharrrrrrrr.

There were some great performances over the weekend with a lot of blokes putting their hands up to be included in your squad. Conversely, there were a lot of blokes who may have been in your squad already that perhaps let you know that they weren’t quite ready yet.

Alternative Team

Here at SuperCoach Talk, Duck and I hear a lot of arguments about which competition is better: Supercoach or Dream Team. Like you, we know SC wins hands down but for years we played in DT league and we think its still a pretty good comp. As part of our research we’ve picked up a copy of the AFL Preseason Record and for all of you who are interested in Dr Dream Team’s selections but are too hard up to whack your hand into the skyrocket for $7 here it is with his comments on each selection:

My Team – The Forwards

Written by Motts on 7:01 am, February 12 2010

FORWARDS

Original revisions had a ton of blokes in here that I considered to be good value. Names like Rusling, Reid, Jetta, Walker, Veszpremi and Burton. In the end though, I’ve gone with proven performers that don’t have such an injury question mark over their heads. Given my ruck division and some of my backs I think it was the right decision to make.

A Didak ($558,600, 105.18) – as much as I hate having a Pies player in the team you gotta give a spot to a bloke averaging over 100. If I could afford Roo I’d take him but I can’t so a small forward who spends time in the guts will have to do.
