Congratulations! If you’re reading this and its still Friday night, you are a dyed-in-the-wool regular of SCT.

Down to business, if you’re still in the game, you’ve gotta be nervous right now. What’s getting your goat?

  1. thoughts on why the hell dane swan is named on the bench for tonights bout? im tossing up between him and ablett as skipper, as is everyone else who have them… but i just noticed that he is one line further down than normal, from “foll” to “int”……

    any inside info boys? or should i be a scaredy cat and put the cap on ablett?

  2. just waiting for the subs to be named to make sure there are no didak issues.

    trades done

    OUT: Hibberd IN: R,Shaw(Syd) looks like rhys has been released the last few weeks
    OUT:Pavlich IN: R.Okeefe (Syd) might not be the best move this week but should get a solid 80 and the swans play brisbane in Rnd24

  3. What is getting my goat: Sylvia on the bench and my mate made horrible trades for me and now I’m forced to waste a trade:

    Thumbs up: Gibbs to Bock
    Thumbs down: Scotland to Bock

    Best of luck to you all.

  5. Have to re-think my original stratagy and get a backman in for Newman meaning Tendai will step in for Sylvia who’ll waste away on my bench ๐Ÿ™

    Can get anyone except Bock, and the Backline sits at:
    God, Lids, Gibbs, Fish, Grundy, Newman, Broughton (Jacobs, Johnson, Toy)
    (disgusting bench, I know I know)
    Right now thinking either:
    Enright, thumbs up
    or
    Suckling, thumbs down.

    Hit reply if you’ve got another idea for me.
    Thanks guys, (and gimmeguitars ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  7. Getting my goat is Sylvia out and Broughton looking a bit wobbly – neither is an issue in SC, but my – ahem – Mother’s team is 37th in DT at the moment, but will now struggle to make up the difference. First year I’ve ever done better in DT than SC.

  11. No trades and one donut in my prelim. Need a different captain choice to make up for donut and have settled on travis cloke. Thoughts? Freo have no players left, no reason why cloke can’t take 15 grabs and kick 6 goals! Smart move or desparate move?

  12. Serious help needed here guys! I can’t make my (rude word) mind up!

    Thumbs up – Cloke, looking awesome this round but will he be rested next week?

    Thumbs down – Davis, consistently awesome, but maybe less ball in the backline this week. Less likely to get a rest next week?

    HELP!!!

  13. OK so it looks like Bock is coming in for Newman.

    Do I get Chappy in for Pav and bench ISmith of Mzungu. (thumbs up)
    Or do i save the trade and have two trades next week (thumbs down)

    thoughts?
    (ps: sorry if i’m repeating one of my relies from earlier, struggling with choices this week)

  16. The very same to you Kernal.

    Re: the captaincy argument between GAJ/Swan – it’s a much of a muchness, in my humble opinion. For what it’s worth, I’ve opted for GAJ.

    For your sake Ced I hope Cloke gets a chop out from Dawes and Brown.

  17. So I traded out Newman, who was on my bench and without an emergancy tag for Enright.
    Once that was done, I decided to grab some KFC, and come back to watch the footy, forgetting about my supercoach for now and leaving Josh Toy on the field, and Corey Enright on the bench.
    I’m about to cry.

  18. Divine intervention Crabstick?
    Pray to the SC gods that Toy cannot take his place in the 22 due to a busted shoelace. Pray, I tell you…

  19. Oh.
    Then you’re stuffed, I’m afraid to say.
    If it’s any consolation (which I dare say won’t be), I paid no consideration to my choice of captain last week. Captain Buddy scored 106, and I lost two of my finals by less than 50. S**t happens.

  20. my fave song at the moment. Fitting song for all us supercoaches out there, as most of us did indeed “lose control” of our teams this week. Forget Pav, now let’s see Kav work his magic. Kudos to Eskimo Joe. Look out for the kid on the strecher who reminds me of Dale Thomas earlier tonight when he got knocked out (lol). I shouldn’t really laugh at that but I was going to trade him in this week for Judd, so…..

  21. Really ace song, and I’ve long been arguing with the powers that be to have the J’s as our choice of station (to great success!), but you have a rather sordid sense of humour GG. Am I to understand that you’re not new to this site, unlike myself?

  22. Thanks GG, though seeing as it’s R22 perhaps my timing could’ve been better.
    The colour(s) of match-day socks aside, there’s only one team with a true claim to the Redlegs tag, that being Melbourne.
    Luck be with you over the next week-and-a-bit.
