The Captaincy Loophole

Written by Motts on March 19 2011

OK so you’ve got your team settled. That’s good. Now for your next big decision: are you going to exploit the loophole that allows you to change your captain on Friday next week by naming one of the Carlton or Richmond superstars as your vice-captain on Thursday night?

If any team were to drop out of the Top8, it would be...........(two choices)

  1. Hi, so given that we can pick a Captain, emergencies etc on Friday for the rest of the weekend…do we still have unlimited trades too? (excepting carlton/richmond players)
    Cheers 🙂

  2. Guys, as an avid Tigers fan I’m as self-deprecating as the next person (call it a survival technique if you will). But can we at least wait until the season starts until we lay into ’em too heavily?

  3. Anybody know if there are many Thursday or Monday games fixtured this year? I like Fr-Sun fixturing myself with Sunday night SC scores.

  5. I’m going to give Gibbs a shot at the double points on Friday night (it was him or Deledio and with an expected Carlton win plus lots of talk in the last few days of Gibbs getting more midfield time he’ll get the VC). If he scores sub 120 (which i expect he will) BJ or Pendles are likely to get the Captain’s armband.

  6. I am still unsure as to how this loophole works. Would you named Gibbs as say VC then a bench player as C. Then on the friday you change you C to say Goddard if you are not happy with the score from Gibbs? Is that how it works?

  8. I dont see the point in this.
    Lets say u select gibbs as ur VC, and he plays very well.
    does that mean u have to make a spud captain?
    if this is the case u will have a doughnut that u couldve prevented…?

  9. if you dont understand the loophole its safe to say you shouldn’t use it! lol

    how hard is it!

    Step 1) Put a gc player on the pitch for one of ur rookies and name him/her as emergency
    Step 2) Make the Gc player you placed on the field in step 1 a CAPTAIN
    Step 3) pick Foley,Gibbs,Judd,Delidio, Matthew Richardson,Ratten as your VICE CAPTAIN
    Step 4) if they score well dont change anything
    Step 5) if they score like Relton Roberts make someone who is yet to play like Godds,Swan,Selw,Pendl,Modra, Dunstall, your CAPTAIN

    its pretty easy, ur mum could do it!

    Sorry im Angry because my dreadlocks are all tangled and I can’t play round 1

    🙂

  11. Ok GuysI will give this cappy loopole 1 more go and if i still dont get it i will go with the norm
    here is what i think i should do correct me if im wrong
    I make gibbsy my vice put on a gold coast rookie take off goddard make him emergency for the gold coast player . if gibbs plays a blinder then goddard comes in as a normal player .if gibbsy has a stinker , i am allowed to make gods my captain on the friday. is this even close to correct

  12. So I take my vice captain off and make him a GC player. Then replace a rookie with a spud who won’t play. I make Gibbs a Ruckman and hope he plays a blinder. The rookie who was swapped with a GC player becomes Goddard. Any other rookie who plays crap becomes a Richmond player??

  13. Seriously now, there is an easier way to do this.

    1. Name a Vice Captain (e.g Gibbs) for Thursdays game.
    2. Don’t name a Captain
    3. If VC performs, do nothing
    4. If VC doesn’t perform, name a Captain (e.g God) before final lockout.

    If you have already named a captain, you can remove this. Here’s how…

    1. Remove the player you named as Captain.
    2. Temporarily Add another player of equal or less value to replace him.
    3. Save your team.
    4. Remove the replacement player.
    5. Add back your original player
    6. Save your team – he shouldn’t be captain anymore.

  14. Is it possible to see how Yarran goes tonight…..and if he kills it in his “new” role then bring him in after the partial lockout re-opens??
    (i’d assume he’d then need to be a non-scoring bench player for this round but also not costing an actual trade at a later stage) or are all Carlton/Richmond players unavailable….????

    I don’t have him obv 🙂

  15. Name him as an emergency… if he pulls 100 points then swap in one of your Suns and make him your 0 point scorer to take advantage.

    I’ve done this with Foley, Yarran and Duigan with the hope that there is no substitutions or injuries.

  16. With Gibbs getting 133 as my VC which i am happy to double, can someone please reconfirm if:-
    A) I can avoid putting in a captain prior to lockout?
    B) I start GC player as Captain but Goddard as emergency on bench. Goddard would not now become captain?

  17. Ok…. so i had Gibbs last night as VC….I’m happy to take his score…..I also put Smith (GCS) on the ground as Captain and named Sandi as EMG.
    Question…
    If I remove and then add Smith from my team to un-select a Captain and thus enabling Sandi back on the ground to free up my EMG selection will I get double for Gibbs if I have no Captain selected?

    I ask as i’ve had conflicting information saying I need to leave it how I have set it up otherwise my VC does not score double without a C selected in the team….
