Alternative Team

Written by Motts on 7:00 am, February 13 2010

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:

DEFENDERS

A Carrazzo –

Come back tomorrow for another team with justifications on why these players need to be in your team from someone who should know what they’re doing. No names yet – come on back tomorrow to find out who it is.

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.

James Podsiadly – Shhhhh!!!!

Written by Duck on 3:47 pm, February 11 2010

James who? I’d never heard of him but according to his bio on the Cats website he’s …

One of the standout players in the VFL in recent seasons, Podsiadly gets a long overdue chance at VFL level. Even though he is 28, he has been a dominant key forward in the VFL and it would not surprise if he were given an opportunity in the AFL. Was on Essendon’s rookie list in 2000 and Collingwood’s in 2002.

His other notable achievements for 2009 include, Best & Fairest, 68 goals and member of VFL team of the year.

My Team – The Rucks

Written by Motts on 7:00 am, February 11 2010

As I mentioned yesterday, there are some bargains to be had here but as with most bargains in this comp there is a risk you sign up to if you draft them. More often than not its injury and the two blokes I’ve placed on the field this year both missed significant numbers of games in ’09. As with my backs, the strategy is to take the value gain before trading up to fellas like Clark, Cox (if his foot stays good), Tippett, McIntosh and Kreuzer.

RUCKS

D Hille ($311,300, 73.25) – starred in the comp a couple of years ago but played only 4 games in 2009 before blowing out his knee in the Anzac Day match.

My Team – The Mids

Written by Motts on 7:00 am, February 10 2010

MIDFIELDERS
This group generates more points per player than any other because they just get so much of the leather. My strategy here is to go with guys on the field that I think will score heavily for me and grab a couple of rookies on the bench that I think will go up nicely in price. Here we go:

G Ablett ($744,200, 140.11) – Captain selection automatically made every week. Yes you could get 2 players for him but you can only make one of those guys captain. I’m still not over the line with him but at this stage he’s in.
