Rate My Team #1

Written by Motts on January 30 2015

SC has now been open for nearly 18 hours. I’ve done about 10 iterations of my team, how’s yours looking?

Puff that chest out and post your boys in Comments. People may tear it to shreds, give you a thumbs up if they like it, or handily tip you that someone like Pearce Hanley won’t be playing for the next 12 weeks because he’s gone in for hip surgery.

Rate My Team posts are like a box of chocolates….

    Ruck: Goldy, Maric (Cox)

    Fwd: Lids, Goddard, Swan, T.Mitchell, Bellchambers, Clark, (Hogan, Daniel)

    Interesting to see how often it changes before Rd1


  9. Got $703,500 so a few upgrades to go if any rookies / mids not going to play

    J.Newnes, B.Whitecross, D.Moore (D/F), N.Brown, S.Edwards, J.Kolodjashnji, H Bench – Goddard (D/F) & D.McKenzie (D/M)
    GAJ, Pendles, Fyfe, Boak, Griffin, J.Steven, D.Rich, N.Van Berlo,
    Bench – I Heeney, N.Freeman, J.Laverde (M/F)
    Nic Nat, M.Leunberger & P.Wright (R/F)
    D.Martin, D.Swan & T.Mitchell (all M/F), Bellchambers (R/F), C.Selem, J.Hogan,
    Bench – C.Daniel & K.Lambert (M/F)

    K.Lambert to R.Grey or Delidio shores up forwards whilst Kolodj to H.Shaw or B.Smith would improve my rough diamonds in Def. Any comments / thoughts on any of the rookies would be much appreciated.







  11. Some early league codes to consider
    killing fields 904188
    Supercoach glory 860831
    Jacks pro league 411292
    I played in these last year & there’s no easy beats, all serious players!


  12. DEF: Simpson, Shaw, Waters, Whitecross, H Goddard, Hamling

    FWD: Deledio, B Goddard, Franklin, Swan, Bellchambers, M Clark

    $240,000 left in the kitty


  13. DEF – Smith , Shaw , Newnes (mid) , Waters , Scharenberg , H.Goddard / J. Mcguinness , Vojo Rainbow

    MIDs – Ablett , Pendlebury , Fyfe , Wines , Lumumba (Def) , Petracca (Fwd) , Cockatoo , N. Freeman – I.Heeney , J.Laverde (Fwd ) , B.Boekhorst.

    Rucks Jacobs , Goldstein – P.Wright (Fwd)

    Fwds – Deledio (Mid) , Bennell (mid) , Swan (mid) , M.Bontempelli (Mid) , Clark , Hogan – N. Krakouer (mid) , K.Lambert (Mid).

    Bank $50,600

    Taking a punt paying top dollar for rucks. IMO the best two tap ruckman and most durable in the competition.
    Other left field picks Lumumba at a new club and DPP status. Bennell hoping he can stay injury free and Gold Coast have a favourable draw early in the season. Hoping Bontempelli can translate last years end of season form and has DPP status.


  14. Ok. version 398 of Wobblesbegone, all Rookies are placeholders of course.
    D: Heater, Hurn,Newnes, Ibbo, Clanceee Pearce, Beau Waters (J. Kolodjashnijijij, M.Dick)
    M: Gaj, Pendles, Jelwood, Sloane, Steven,NVB, Heeney, Boekhurst (Freeman, Mackenzie, Lambert)
    R: Nicnat, Leuenberger (Cox)
    F: Goddard, Dusty, Swanny, Titch, Salem, Saad, (Daneil, Hogan)

    I have a feeling that it wont stay that way, but with $1700 left it is what it is for now.


  15. Some of you might remember me as a bit of a regular in 2012-2013 on SCT. I started 2014 strong ranked in the 200’s early, but unfortunately as I was doing Year 12 didn’t have a lot of time to focus on my team and had to pretty much give it up fairly early in the season, would check in occasionally but not often. But I’m back for 2015 and hoping for a great year!

    anyways here is my first crack…

    Simpson, Smith, Shaw, Hibberd, Waters, Goddard (Viojo-Rainbow, Newman)

    Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Watson, Cotchin, Heeney, Boekhorst, Vandenberg (Freeman, Laverde, Steele)

    Kreuzer, Leuenberger (Cox)

    Deledio, Martin Franklin, Swan, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Krakouer)



  16. Version 1 of SC normal, bound to be many more versions. Had a much better team (from memory) on SC Gold pre picker but it’s disappeared from the face of the Earth!! What’s the point of giving you a pre picker if they rip it off you when you are not looking?

    Def: Eski, Jaensch, Waters, Gilbert, MacMillan, Yeo (Goddard/Whitecross)
    Mid: GAJ, Fyfe, Gray, Greene, A Swallow, VB, Biggs, Boeckhorst (Freeman, A Saad, Lambert)
    Ruc: Sauce & Nicholls (Durdin)
    FWD: Lids, Swan, Titch, Walters, Clark, Kommer, (Hogan, Krakouer)

    A big chunk of this will change obviously. Much emphasis will be on the rookies and the NAB Cup. Most likely going to suffer lack of research time as I am back at work after a year off. Amazing how much time can spent (read wasted by wife) on SC during a sabbatical. Think the top 20 ranking might be the biggest loser!!
    Still can’t wait to be a part of it all with you folk again, that’s the fun part.

    $182k left over – thinking it could be put towards a better ruck than Leuey, or getting some of the more expensive rookes (Salem, Membrey, Cockatoo etc.)

    $67K in the kitty, would really appreciate some feedback, potential swaps? Not to keen on Clark will see how he performs pre-season, also thought i’d stray away from the normal waters pick and back in gaz rohan in for a big year without mal around, cheers guys.

    only 15k left in the bank, still big changes first initial team put together. not to sure about my mids i thought with a few of the likes of libba,gibbs & treloar all good value for money considering there only going to improve.

    thoughts would be appreciated.

    Rookies depending all on Nab cup.
    If more money required for better rookies, I’ll downgrade Simpson to Newnes or downgrade Franklin to Mitchell which will net me around $200G extra to play with.
    Thoughts please…


  29. Great to see this site still drawing in a huge crowd. Here’s my first attempt at a 2015 squad. Your thoughts, as ever, are appreciated.

    DEF: K Simpson, S Burgoyne, B Smith, M Johnson, B Waters, J Hamlin, H Goddard, D Viojo-Rainbow

    FOR: B Deledio, B Goddard, D Swan, M Clark, A Saad, J Hogan, J Laverde, C Daniel


  30. Hey Guys & Girls. Its good to be back!!!! My 1st crack at a completed team. Obviously rookies an other things will change. Havent looked at byes or anything yet. Looking at going G’n’R. We are spoiled for options up Forward this season, so im expecting that to be the area i change most before round 1.

    Simpson Hibbered Newnes
    Z. Jones Lever Scharenberg
    (Goddard McKenzie)

    Ablett Rocky Fyfe Ward
    A.Swallow Cockatoo Heeney Boekhurst
    (Vandenberg Freeman Stretch)

    Nic Nat Leuy

    Deledio Goddard Swan
    Ziebell Clark Hogan
    (Laverde Steele)

    ZBall an Newnes obviously not guns, but think at their price, positions available an room for growth, they could be potential picks of the yr. I havent included Waters, Rich or NVB an not sure if i will. If i do, i will probably lean towards Waters.

    Salary left $335k

    – I’m not sure about the premos in defence this year, so will probably go a left field approach (Such as above).
    – Mids are at a 6/5 ratio, which I will stick with (for now).
    – Rucks will depends on various factors. Happy for now.
    – Forwards are interesting too with a few midpricers that haven’t been discussed much yet.

    Let the changes begin!

  51. Have noticed that no one has started with Dangerfield (including myself). With contract negotiations coming up I would’ve thought that he’d be fired up this season to get his market value up. Is it solely based on contract talks or am I missing something?

  56. Well, here’s my first draft of the year:

    Still trying to choose between the mid season dive and a more balanced bye round setup

    Def: K Simpson (513k), B Smith (503k), J Geary (332k), G Rohan (272k), T Logan* (268k), B Waters (267k)

    Subs B Whitecross (199k) and H Goddard (122k)

    Subs M Clark (155) and J Hogan (130)

    T Logan is a placeholder at present. I can go up to 391k there (123k cash) but waiting to see if there are any def rookies of note – or if B Goodes gets let back into the kennel.

    I know I’ve loaded up in D but I can see all 5 of those guys placing in the top 10 this year, along with the fact that I reckon there are far better rookie options in the mid and fwd lines.

    Any feedback would be great xx

  65. Is it just me or does SuperCoach mobile site suck, yet again??

    What’s with the position selector??? FFS!!! Don’t they test these things?

    Can’t find a 2015 app in the App Store.


    Rant over.

  67. With the lack of “Premium” Defenders this season, are people slightly more inclined to go lighter or more “Mid Priced”? I am currently liking Hibbs, Ibbo an Atley as my 1st 3 Defenders.. Atley is primed for a breakout yr this season, another pre season under his belt. Missy being there should free him up to run through the Midfield. An ave of 85-90 is not out of the question. He did ave 72 this season though, but prime for the next step. I dont have the faith of starting with Heater an will look to grab him, if at all, when he bottoms..


  68. Anyone starting with both GAJ an Rocky? Currently i am, but if i had to leave out 1, im thinking its Ablett. I know i will be criticized, but GAJ is coming of a big injury, hasnt had contact work yet, whereas i think Rocky has so much upside. He hasnt peaked yet an will only keep getting better. Tackling machine, and with Beamer, Redden an Rich, i think he can ave even more this yr. I know Hanley is done, but that wont change his role or possesions, plus he is the Captain now.


  69. DEF: Malceski, Shaw, Newnes, Whitecross, Goddard, Viojo-Rainbow (Hamling, Maynard)

    MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Wines, Griffin, A. Swallow, Brayshaw, Van Berlo (Vandenberg, Boekhorst, Freeman)

    RUC: Naitanui, Kreuzer (King)

    FWD: Goddard, Swan, Mitchell, Adams, Clark, Hogan (Laverde, Krakouer)

    Sometimes I look at my team and think it’s not bad other times I feel like I’ve ruined it. My hardest decision is rookie defenders.
    $170,000 left so there’s obviously going to be a change


  70. Greatly improved v2 team with $17,700 in bank:-

    H.Shaw, J.Newnes (d/m), B.Waters, D.Moore(d/f), N.Brown, H.Goddard(d/f)
    bench of D.McKenzie(d/m) & S.Edwards (good pre-season – hopefully play)

    G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, N.Fyfe, Boak, A.Swallow, J.Steven, D.Rich, I.Heeney
    bench of N.Freeman, B.Boeckhorst & J.Laverde (m/f)

    S.Jacobs, Nic Nat & P.Wright (r/f)

    D.Martin, D.Swan & J.Ziebell (all f/m), M.Walters, M.Clark, J.Hogan
    bench of C.Daniel & K.Lambert (f/m)

    Any comments appreciated.


  71. Originally had Jacobs/Goldy but am getting a bit gun-shy with the changes to ruck scoring. How does this look for balance?

    DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Birchall, Newnes, Waters, Colquhoun (J Kolo, Goddard)
    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Sloane, Ward, Biggs, Anderson, Heeney, Boekhorst (Vandenberg, Freeman, Steele)
    RUC: NicNat, Kreuzer (Wright)
    FWD: Delidio, Franklin, Swan, Mitchell, Daisy, Hogan (Daniel, Lambert)

    About $15k in the bank.

    If some of the risky picks come off (Waters, Mitchell, Daisy, rucks) I may only have 6 genuine upgrades to manage, which leaves me with plenty of flexibility for late season sideways trades.

    Could shore up the starting rucks by downgrading Wright to Cox and Birchall to Lumumba, allowing NicNat to be upgraded to Jacobs. Not sure if Sauce is going to hold his value though (rare for rucks to back up a stellar season, and looks like most rucks will lose some scoring power anyway).


  72. Team is ever-changing as always this early in the pre season.

    DEF: Simpson, Hibberd, Birchall, Waters, Goddard, S Edwards (Viojo-Rainbow, McKenzie)

    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Selwood, Ward, Griffen, NVB, Heeney, Boekhorst (Duggan, Freeman, Laverde)

    RUC: Goldstein, Naitanui (Cox)

    FWD: Deledio, Goddard, Swan, Mitchell, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Lamb)

    13,600 left in the kitty.

    May end up replacing Goldstein for a Kruezer or Luenberger to free up cash for other areas later on.

    Would love to hear what you think of my team!


  73. Demons Of Darch, #567

    Malcheski, Hibberd, Lumumba, Waters, Moore, Brown
    Goddard, Rainbow

    Ablett (C), Rockcliff(VC), Pendlbury, Selwood(the good one), Steven, Van Berlo, Cockatoo, Boekhorst,
    De Goey, Heeney, Laverde

    Kreuzer, Luey,

    Martin, Bennell, Swan, Ziebell, Clark, Hogan
    Petrecca, Membrey

    Not much cash left. I know the rucks are weak but it allows me to have the 4 best midfielders in the comp. let me know what you think…


  74. Heres my first attempt,
    DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Simpson, Whitecross, McIntosh, Goddard, Hamling, Rainbow
    MIDS: Ablett, Pendles, Selwood, Fyfe, Swallow, Heeney, Boekhorst, Freeman, Petracca, Vendenberg, Laverde
    RUCKS: Nic Nat, Leuenberger, Cox
    FWDS: Goddard, Deledio, Swan, Mitchell, Bellchambers, Clark, Hogan, Lambert

    Thinking of replacing Mitchell, and unsure about Bellchambers but like the RUCK DPP with Cox


  75. Hi all. Good to be back and the footy (and more importantly SC) itch is starting to kick in big time now.

    Here’s where I’m at. Any and all advice appreciated…….

    $3,200 change

    Pretty keen to get Buddy up to Gray. Everyone saying he’s overs but I see no reason why he should go backwards this year and was head and shoulders above all other forwards last year. Could be a 100-200 early jump on the rest if I can find a way to sneak him in. If Rampe looks to be taking Malceski’s role I might bring him in for Birchall. Backline just looks so thin with him in there.

    Walters or even Taylor Adams could be a chance for Titch depending on NAB form too.

    Otherwise I’m pretty happy (for now) but don’t have much coin so when the genuine rookie chances show through I might have to compromise somewhere.
