  1. If Hurn is out again with Oldman Calf Injury who to trade him to?
    (I have Lloyd, Whitfield, Crisp, Laird and Ryan)

  2. I’ll continue on my theme of looking at things non SC 2019 to keep those low on trades or well down in the rankings interested.

    I’d love a thread on how we’d tinker with SC if we could. Given the keys to the kitchen with full license to tweak or completely overhaul what would we do?

    For me, DEF/MID/RUCK/FWD doesn’t cut it. Maybe have a KPP category as well for FB, CHB, CHF, FF. Also, i like the idea of having a cleanout trades week that you get to use once in the season. Unlimited trades that week that don’t come off your total trade count. You could use it to fix problems, change horses if you’re on a mule or if you squirrel away the coin it could be massive upgrade season. Seen it in an A-League fantasy comp and it was an awesome feature.

    1. I need clarity on the TD people.

      TU – Your thumb down was about my idea if i was given the keys to SuperCoach HQ
      TD – Your thumb down means you think that the whole thing is a poor idea for a thread

    2. I would love to see an unlimited trades round that councides with the midseason-draft or trade period if that comes in. Would fit thematically and could shift strategies massively

    3. I like the idea of a thread of what changes coaches would make to Supercoach and looking at your idea of an unlimited trade week i don’t mind it. I would still make each trade come off the total, as i don’t like seeing people change a whole squad because they’d mostly go for best score of the week. It would work better when a few injuries occur or rookies are on the bubble so you can go 2up 2 down in one week.

    4. Roo, I can’t give a t/u or t/d as I agree with some and not the others. I like the idea of categorising players into rucks, kpp, on ballers, fwds, defs, Teams would need two kpp’s on def and fwd lines. Do away with dpp’s.
      On the unlimited trades suggestion for one round…def against. Penalises those who got it right. I don’t mind the idea of say, during one bye round…if they stay, or THE bye round if only one, that everyone gets three trades for free.

      The one thing I would def do is not start the sc scoring until whoever brings the ball in after a point, has disposed of the ball other than kicking or handballing to themselves. Obviously, playing on and getting tackled, kicking out on full etc…still counts in resuming play.

    5. Maybe add one LTI trade in line with mid season draft. Only if your player is out for the season prior to mid season draft.
      Would be up to you if you wanted to burn a trade early or keep them on the bench till mid season for a free trade.

      Otherwise I think the number of trades is bang on. Sure could use more but that would just bring every team closer. Need to reward those who start with a solid team, hold and don’t sideways trade.

    6. remove the 1 nominated emergency & pre lockout & nominate all rookies
      on each line in priority order
      nominate emerg 1 , to replace 1st doughnut
      nominate emerg 2 , to replace 2nd donught etc
      only to play when neeeded
      remove capt loophole & just have C & then VC when needed
      dis allowing the C to go onto a non playing player after round has started
      this would make fairer for those coaches that have jobs

      1. I agree, this game is very hard for the worker that can’t spend the the time working out in and outs before each match. Why should people be penalized that love the game that work or play sport or have a life . Lockout after first game is the only way to go. PJ keep saying what you think mate .

      2. PJ I actually agree with you for the first time. I would’ve put money on you wanting trades to go from 66 to 88

        The whole captains loophole is all well and good when we get it right but seriously it shouldn’t be available if they were fair dinkum. You don’t need brass balls these days as you get a free hit at it.

        1. na ,
          trades are good
          still got plenty left
          used a few early
          but with such a horror run with captains
          haven’t needed to keep trading to stay with the front runners
          went with cripps C before grundy VC had played this week 😉
          was work’n & didn’t notice till 1/2 time
          so far back now , trading isn’t a priority

  3. Buying a Trade:
    If at say, finals time , you made it into the finals and thus,
    earned the right to “Buy a Trade” How much would you expect a trade to be worth $200k, $250k , $300k ???

    1. I’m interested in the buying a trade idea. Not sure of its ramifications but i’m keen for all ideas.

  4. I’ve raised this before but I would like to see a limit on the number of times a player can be nominated as captain
    That way you need to be more selective as to who and when you put the big c on a player.
    For example you could put the c on Grundy 7 times and 7 times on P. Bines to take Grundys vc score but for the other rounds you would need another player to be nominated.
    Granted you may use Gawn as well but how good would it be to have your opponent not be able to use Grundy/Gawn in the supercoach grandfinal because they had reached their limit

    1. So you have used grundy 7 times your self shaggi , how good would it be when you can’t use him in your grand final?

    1. Chuck Giants on that convo as well. How their B&F is the Kevin Sheehy medal baffles me. Start up coach yes but c’mon, really?

        1. Noone yet. Call it the Giants medal until there’s an incredibly obvious option like their first premiership winning captain.

  5. I feel as though it might make the game a bit more tactically interesting if, in addition to a captaincy choice, you could select to apply the “Tag” to an opposition player.

    This would allow supercoach players to select a Point of Difference from the team of their head to head match-up and reduce their score by 50% by applying the “tag” to that player.

    I understand that this may have implications for those who play for total points, however, maybe the effect of the tag can be excluded from the total points ranking score.

    Keen to know your thoughts

    1. Seems like a very interesting idea, however if you are in multiple leagues are you supposed to pick one for each individual league match up? Picking a select player and it applies for all match ups would work easier, but I’d make it that it would have to be a player you don’t own otherwise your own team will cop the punishment.

      I would see instead of a tag, put more into the captain choice. Have the VC only score 1.8 times the original score but 2 times the score. It would cause more thought in captain choice as players would be more bold in their captain choice early on to get max bonus. You could play it safe with the VC but wouldn’t be rewarded as greatly if you went with that decision.

  6. How highly do you rate bench cover considering all the late season outs?
    For example would you rather have a mid priced midfielder with a playing emergency or a premium midfielder with no cover?

  7. Thoughts on which prems on people’s 2020 avoid lists. Guys like J Kelly and Fyfe seem to get hurt too much for my liking.

  8. What about a money in the bank carry forward to next season?
    I have just used (sob!) my last trade and still have 162k in the bank (R. Gray my lowest ave on field) and at least one emergency cover in all positions, all because of injuries. (more sobbing!)
    I’m also a fan of “extra”, 2-4 maybe, trades at the commencing of finals.
    Probably just to cover injuries………….(more and more sobbing)
