How's Your Summer Going?

Written by Motts on January 14 2011

G’day punters

Like all of you, for me the footy season can’t come quick enough. I’ve sat and watched Australia getting thoroughly belted in the cricket all summer and I’ve had enough. Bring on the cold (but still wet) weather, the Blues and a Top 4 spot, and of course, Supercoach.

I’ve been following a few of the Bluebaggers on Twitter lately. Gibbsy, Murph, Walks, Carrazz, Brocky, Simmo and others pass their down time by bagging each other out. Highly entertaining.

Also starting to put some thought into the consideration set for the Maulers ’11. Of course it’ll all come down to the $ for each player but that doesn’t stop me thinking about it now. Anyone think Brennan will pull his finger out now he’s with a different team?

  1. I keep putting him in my team mainly because of my Lions bias and i hope that after all this time he doesn’t start playing well consistently. I will be most annoyed not as much for Supercoach as the Lions who stuck by is efforts over the years and persisted with him. I will not be putting him in my team for that reason alone.

    1. I tend to have a bias AGAINST players from my teammates. Basically, my theory is that i don’t want the potential double loss of them doing poorly in the real stuff and in SuperCoach.

    1. Rustee, im loving that forward line. No room for Travis Varcoe though? Not a fan of ur defence one iota however mate.
      Out of that Id only be going with Otten. And No Hodge????????

      Id also suggest another DPP in the ruck to take full advantage of Petrie should he be made as a DPP again.

  3. This is the team im playing around with atm:

    TEAM NAME: Gods Gift
    DEF: B. Goddard, B. Gibbs, C. Enright, B. Symes, N. Bock, N. Krakouer, J. Brennan (P. Faulks, K. Hunt, S. Iles)
    MID: C. Judd, J. Selwood, L. Hodge, S. Pendlebury, D. Swallow, H. Bennell (A. Gaff, T. Mzungu, D. Harris)
    RUC: A. Sandilands,J. Fraser. (M. Seaby, J. Griffin)
    FWD: N. Riewoldt, M. Pavlich, D. Prestia, A. Krakouer, J. Darling, B. Matera, S. Day. (R. Gamble, P. Veszpremi, N. Ablett,)
    CASH LEFT: $50,300

    Still needs some work, players like N Ablett and K Hunt are only in there for me to make some cash on. And Hunts getting paid so much they have to play him evey game. What do you guys think?

    1. little to many players in the same team on the same lines could mean you don’t have cover in some rounds, and will cop donuts

    1. Know what you mean, AA. To the rest of the office I was the hard working bloke that got to work at 7:30am every Monday during winter. Little did they know I didn’t actually look at anything but SC and footytips until about 10:30am.

    1. Zac Smith and Josh Fraser, cant see many others getting a gig unless one gets injured, Sam Day may rotate through the ruck ocassionally but will play predominately forward

  8. G’day guys,
    Do we know what’s happening with the bye situation this year? Has it been confirmed? Can’t wait for the new season!

    1. Basically what is happening is

      . We get an extra bench player in every position except ruck.
      . The magic number will be lowered to allow us to have those extra players.
      . League games will start from round 1
      . In rounds where 3 teams have the bye in the actual AFL, SC has a bye in league games.

      . However in the league byes the points still count towards our overall tally.

      Note- Some think it is impossible to go for both the overall or league. So some are developing strategies for one or the other only a few are still going for both
