SC Round 1 Lessons

Written by Big Sexy on March 30 2011

A few Lessons Learned from Round 1:

  1. JP Kennedy isn’t worth the SC Hype (yet)
  2. Midpricers don’t pay dividends (very few exceptions)
  3. There are plenty of good Rookies to choose from, and we haven’t seen the Suns yet.
  4. Big Cox is back to his very best
  5. Those trying to exploit the captaincy loophole with Gibbs/Judd and have Swan in their side should not have got sucked in…. you invested in Swan for a reason!
  6. Captaincy selection is crucial…. Anyone who picked Selwood was in serious trouble (obviously couldn’t predict that).
  7. Don’t ever get sucked in to picking the Tiges second-string rookies just because they are named.  i.e Relton Roberts, Andrew Browne!
  8. Goddard can score well, even if he has a bad game.
  9. People looking to offload premiums who didn’t score-well in round one… should re-think….. this is a marathon, not a sprint.
  10. Anyone who selected Everitt is a massive loser (that’s a specifically directed dig, they know who they are)
  11. What rookies you play on the field and name on the bench is crucial to final score (i.e. I had Lower on bench, Duigan on field, that’s 50 extra points)
  12. Some other stories I have heard include:
a.    People forgetting to select captain or vice captain
b.    People forgetting to name emergencies
c.    People selecting the wrong player (i.e the wrong Otten)
d.    People not looking at final teams to re-jig what they have and avoid doughnuts.
 

What did you learn?

  1. 4. Is Big Cox really gonna pumpout 160+ scores every week though?? If so then goodbye Jolly.

    6. Had both Selwood (not capt thank god!) and Foley so copped a estimated -100pts off my score. can happen to anyone and any player though…be warned.

    11. had buckley playing and Lower on the bench 🙁

    13. Without the first 3 warm-up rounds that Supercoach has had in previous years alot of mistakes were made regarding selections, captains etc. 2 of the 5 teams i played hadn’t named subs.

  2. A little story about b)

    On Friday afternoon my mate was chatting to his Dad about going to the footy that night and his Dad told him that he’d just gotten into this Supercoach thing. So he walked him through his team, the stars, the underpriced, the rookies, his emergencies…HOLY SHIT I FORGOT TO NAME EMERGENCIES GIVE ME YOUR PHONE

  3. I learnt that I am not as wise as I thought I was. I had in what I thought was a very good side for 2200 pts. (considering the likes of Selwood,Goodes,Franklin etc) and to learn that some bastard had 2600+ absolutely fills me with self loathing.

  4. People picked the wrong Otten ? LOL – surely you jest – one is Otten and one is Ottens and they play in entirely different positions !! On a side note, Ottens actually did surprisingly well Round 1.

  5. Lesson 1. Don’t get sucked in to Bret Deledio before Rnd 10

    Lesson 2. Don’t get sucked in to Adam Goodes before Rnd 5

    Lesson 3. Go with your gut – Don’t get scared off by not having a clear captain choice – I had H Taylor, R O’keefe and C Judd who all made way so I could re-jig and fit Goddard in. Est loss of 350 points. You live and learn… Hopefully.

    Lesson 4. Enjoy every moment of a quiet B Harvey game as you just know that every kick he doesn’t get will come back with interest next week. Would give him the Big C if he wasn’t playing Collingwood this week.

    Lesson 5. Cotchin, Burgoyne, Krakouer and Priddis were very good inclusions.

  6. thinking I might trade Barlow for Curnow in my mids leaving enough spare cash to trade Duigan for either McKernan-not this week- bye, Penderson or Markovic.

    OR trade Barlow for fellow WB Libertore, leaving some cash spare to change/upgrade my 2nd ruck with still some money spare for next week’s trades?

  9. I have Chris Knights, and Adelaide has a bye this week. I will put Darling OR Richardson in my starting 22. I’m thinking of Darling, because his versing Port – and Richo is playing against the Pies.

  10. thinking of giving Yarran one more week, then he’s out for tapscott if tapscott fires again, will save plenty of cash this way and upgrade elsewhere. Also looking to bring in Curnow after next week if he scores big again…just not sure who to trade out?? Kennedy or Atley, maybe Boak??? Any advice?

  11. BS,
    Kennedy and Everitt both scored within 5 points of their last years average while they both played shit games. Your getting what you payed for and they’re only going to get better.
    Although as the avatar shows, I can be a bit bias…

  12. On a rival website i just noticed this list of the 20 most popular SC selection this year.

    I’ve got 16 of the top 20. Bloody hell!! Hope my more unique selections (people like A Swallow, Pendlebury, Higgins, Cox) fire for me.

    The one stands out is that Cox was not in the top 20 selections!!
