The Captaincy Loophole

Written by Motts on April 5 2012

By now I’m sure 99% of you are familiar with this but for the newbies… the captaincy loophole is only available in partial lockout rounds like this one and gives you two bites at the captaincy cherry. Here’s how it works:

Tonight, you give the vice captaincy to a Blues or Lions player that you think will go well. Someone like, say, Marc Murphy (who is going to tear the Lions midfield a new one). Then, later this evening after he has scored 216, you put a player on your field who isn’t going to play this week – someone like James McDonald, or Luke Parker, or Haydn Ballantyne – and you make them captain. Voila! Your Vice Captain’s score counts double as your captain’s score.

If, for some inexplicable reason, Murph doesn’t go crackers tonight like we’re all expecting (eg he was put off by the bloke in the stands who had travelled up from Melbourne and was being a little too loud with his support of The Mighty Blues in his box), you give the captaincy to Pendles or Gablett or Levi tomorrow before lockout and nothing’s been lost.

So, first poll, will you be taking advantage of the loophole

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

If you answered ‘Yep’ aboove, who will you be VC’ing tonight?

  1. Thanks for the reminder. It will be interesting how they will close the hole in future years. Go leuenbreger

  2. Just checking but if u put a non playing player on field surely u will cop a donut. Or will your emergency take effect. Or does the capt go to someone on bench Confused!

  3. Can someone clarify the use of the VC button anyway? Obviously the captain’s score is doubled, what benefits does the VC get?

  4. Just to be perfectly clear, you put the VC on someone playing tonight, you put the C on somebody that isn’t playing this round at all, or you do that after tonight and leave the captaincy on say Gary Ablett for now? Or it doesn’t matter.

  5. Thanks booma for clarification. Wasn’t sure if the captained non player had to be on field or bench but that makes sense now.

  6. Thinking of putting the VC on Murphy although it would be interesting to know what everyone’s pass mark is, personally 130 is a minimum for me otherwise Pendles against the Tigers can have the big C

  7. Honestly I can’t see what the big deal is
    1. Put the VC on the guy who you think will kill it in 2nites game.
    2. Put a non-playing player on the ground, put on C on him, have a playing bench player in the same line and put the E on him.

    If your VC selection stinks it up, just go back to the old way
    1. Put the C on 1 of your guns i.e Gaz.
    2. Make sure you’ve switch the non playing player back on the bench with the playing player in the same line.

  8. As carrazzo is the only blues/lions player I have he’ll get the vc even though I doubt he’ll make a ‘captains score’, but you never know.

    In my ‘daughters’ scttl Murphy will get the vc

  9. Jed Adcock for me… only option I have at this early stage of the season and with 140 last week should be a decent scorer again.

  10. Little off topic but I got a whisper that Kevin Joyce will be playing on Hayden Ballantyne when he returns.

  11. hi all,

    firstly, would just like to comment on how good this site is. its my first time playing supercoach, and being a bit lost during the pre-season, i found this site to be extremely helpful. my 1st score was 2152, which seems like a reasonable start (all due to this site again). even when i heard about the captains loophole and needed some help, here it is, just as i was thinking about it.so in advance, well done to those responsible for the site, it certainly helps a great deal and makes supercoach more enjoyable.

    but i have a question. how hard is it to catch up points when im already 300 odd behind the leader after the 1st week? im in a league, but not with any friends, just public. so i would rather play for the 50 large than anything.

    good luck to all,

    cheers

  12. should i put VC on Scotland, he my only carlton player, got none from lions, an also dont really understand lopehole, so put VC on someone tonight and put C on some one not playing then VC score will double but if he doesnt score well you just change the C to someone who will score well?

  15. Hey all

    Who should i put the VC on Rockcliff, murphy, scotland or adcock.

    I think its safe to exclude Adcock just dont think he can produce a 140 two weeks in a row.
    scotland you never know coz he didnt have a great game last week but he can turn out a pretty high score on his day.
    Rockcliff had a great game last week but i think he might get tagged, but he could prob break that tag by going FWD which he no doubt will. Two to three goals plus some touches in the middle should get him close to last weeks 139.
    As for Murphy he had a better than average game last week but noting spesh, cant see him getting to tight of a tag seeing as brisbane dont really have one except for adcock possibly.

    thoughts would be great.

    cheers

  16. Tonight was going to be the first night that I was going to take advantage of the Captaincy loophole. But, unfortunately the only two players in my team that didn’t play last week are; Zorko and S.Rowe… who are both Brisbane and Carlton players.. Which means if I am happy with my V.C. score, I can’t select Zorko or Rowe as my captain.

    I was shattered.

  19. Not however quite sure on this week.
    Redden the only decent one I have but will he score higher than ablett 99% against.
    Do not bother and go the emergencies one leave him on the bench as emergencies if he really duds put McDonald on the Bench and hope Smith or Sheils score better hmmmm decisions decisions
    Also have Bower carlton, but bit worried all my backs will play hmmm

  20. I’m Going Redden with the VC as its gonna rain so his awesome tackling ability will come into play, i expect 15 tackles = 60 points, plus everything else, so i think he is in for 130+

  23. Have you ever considered about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could certainly
    be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Superb blog!
