2013 Byes



Thank-You

by Motts on August 8, 2011

Its about this time of year that traffic to the site starts to drop off as people get eliminated from their leagues and look for other things to occupy their minds. Things like footy tipping, planning that holiday away or getting that nose job/tummy tuck/ass wax you’ve always wanted.

So before we all go our separate ways for the year, the three of us at SCT just want to say a big THANK YOU for dropping past the site whether regularly or just on occasion. Y’all have made SCT a nice little research resource and a great place to have a chat about footy.

2011 was our biggest year yet and we’re looking to do even better next year.

Do not fear, we’ll continue putting up posts until the end of the regular season for those that need advice or just want confirmation that they’re on the right track. Not a lot goes on during the off-season here but feel free to drop past every now and then. There may be some interesting rookie news or off-season developments. I have been known to post my never-fail horse tips on occasion. At least you’ll then know which horses not to back.

Whether you’re in the bottom or the top 8, good luck for the finals!!

Cheers

Motts, Duck & Big Sexy

To make the LoEC in 2012 you’ll need to have averaged at least about 2,175 this year. Take a screen shot of your Rank By Total Points in the last week to submit as evidence :-)

Made top 4 in all five leagues thanks to the effort and dedication of you three boys. Not to mention the thousands of comments of everyone else, as well as all the up/down polls. Love not only the quality of content, but the layout and user-frienldlyness of this site.

Motts, is there any chance of sneaking into one of the SCT leagues next season. Maybe set up, say 5 leagues (80 SCT coaches) next year and have a sort of relegation system with the aim to make it into the SCT1 league and ultimately win that. Just an idea.

Bender would love nothing more than to be a part of it all next year. Not one to blow my own trumpet, but have entered into 7 leagues in the last 3 years, made the grand final on all 7 occasions and won the league premiership in 5 of them. I need to step up to the big time now.

Relegation, Promotion idea sounds great!
Each year the bottom half in last league could drop out all together, adding new people to the competition each season. And the leagues above, Top 2/ Bottom 2 could advance and relegate respectively between leagues.
Something like that would be awesome.

I am incredibly impressed that you guys have not only been able to maintain a consistantly high-quality site, you’ve also managed to improve. I doff my beanie to you and the other contributors who have maintained a witty, thoughtful and friendly banter throughout a loooong season.

As much as there is plenty of action to go in 2011, I am looking forward to 2012 when there will be no byes to consider (at least, I asssume this will be so). I purposely avoided players from teams who have a bye during finals and grind my teeth whenever I see Judd or Joelwood score out of their skins. Let’s hope they reconsider the whole sub thing too.

Thank you guys. We should be thanking you guys not the opposite! You have made this footy season even more enjoyable than ever. I am going to miss the banter in the off season. Thank you everyone for putting up with me even though, I have made some mistakes earlier in the season. I hope i have helped a few people, but this site has educated me sooo much! I am looking forward to these super coach finals. In the offseason i will concentrate on my fantasy epl team but that doesn’t compare to Supercoach and SCT! Thank you to all the regualer posters you have given me so much advice. And of course, to Motts, Big Sexy and Duck, you guys have been unbelievable!

you are right. About 10 mins is all it took for me to figure out that I have screwed myself out of 2031 extra points due to bad decisions. This would have put me on 46734 points overall and in 3rd spot!

In saying that, if you got all of the top 50 to do theirs in the same format we just did ours we would still be just as far behind. It is an interesting thing to see how much of an impact the correct bench and captain selection can make or break you. I had one week where if I had made the correct decisions I would have gained an extra 193 points!

Was awesome to see the site and the engagement mature over the season and I can’t wait to see it get even bigger and better in 2012. That’s if anyone is willing to share this trade secret ;)

Three SCT blokes meet each day with a smile,
They stop and chat for just a while,
There`s Mottsy and Duck and Big Sexy too,
They write a quick post then they’re off for a brew.

Motts is the warden he has a lot to do,
So many things people just haven`t a clue,
But he goes on his way with his great big smile,
The Movers job is well worthwhile.

Big Sexy does the Rookies List to build up a thirst,
He tells you who to get before their bubble bursts.
He`s always busy making things right,
Building up the banter and the buzz on the site.

Then there’s Duck who works the weekend,
The Round in Progress and Wash Up at the end.
Its more about quality not a numbers game,
But we miss the Duck’s Guts all the same.

These three make SCT a pleasure,
Motts, Duck and Big Sexy, your work is a treasure.
Thanks for the insights and all the advice,
This site is the whole box and dice.

It wouldn’t be the same without the regular crew.
Some young, some old and some cool chicks too!
There’s time to blow of steam and time to reflect,
Most of all, maintain the respect!

Omen
