The New Rules

Written by Motts on December 16 2011

There’s a whole lot of new rules in 2012 including reversible trades, 3 trades a week, and the ability to effectively trade between positions. Everybody’s favourite newspaper, The Hun, has detailed them all here:

Motts is happy about all of ’em. What’s everybody else’s thoughts?

  1. I’m with you Motts all good. Would love to see partial lockout after each game but I understand the concept of baby steps

  2. i still think thats too many trades for the year, 24… i liked it at just 20 trades, way more exciting and harder game to play…

  3. Beams and Sidebottom locked in as DPP M/F according to the Prospectus sneak peak video. Early word is that Dustin Martin is M/F too in 2012.

  4. Hey all! Cherry Mistmas and all that jazz.

    I just finished work at the templestowe hotel where Nick Dal Santo was celebrating his grandmother’s 90th birthday. I was tempted to ask him which saints players he thought would be good for SC next year, but decided to let that one slide.

    I really like all these rule changes to SC next year. Reversible trades till lockout, hell yeah; 3 trades per week during the dreaded multiple bye rounds (R11-13), why not? Ability to trade out a player from one position and trade in a player from another – awesome.

    BTW, is it too early to get a rate my team thread?

  8. Was not sure where to put this but here are some of my thoughts for the upcoming supercoach season (my 3rd)
    In my first season I learnt the mid price strategy was terrible, last year after finishing in the 300`s I learnt that the guns rookies strategy is the way to go. With the guns rookies strategy I chose 12/13 prems and 9/10 rookies. This year I have learnt the prems you choose at the start are important. I also learnt that the mids and rucks are the most reliable point wise. When you look at the starting prices this is reflected. So why not start with most of those 12/13 prems in those areas that are going to score the most points.
    Thus my 12 prems looks like this:
    B: Goddard Deledio (Only 2 real champs in the backline)
    M: Pendlebury Swan Ablett Murphy Priddis Selwood
    R: Sandi Berger
    F: Franklin (Only real point scoring machine in fwds) Martin.
    That leaves me with the job of picking 10 starting rookies in the backs and fwds as my mids and rucks are complete.
    I know it might look like a crazy idea, but I am interested to hear what people think. Cheers.

  9. The other thing you might want to look at is the Bye situation in that midfield. It will be impossible to avoid doughnuts over Rnds 11-13, but you may want to look at whether having 3 premium midfielders (at least – depending on what Mid rookies you choose it could be more) out in Round 12 is acceptable to you. If you are upgrading your Mid rookies by that point in time, make sure none of your replacements also have a bye in Rnd 12.

  11. Entering my sophomore season in SC in 2012. Should be an awesome year! I’ve got a few questions to ask. As I didn’t buy SC Gold last year, I don’t have access to the 2012 prices. Could someone please tell me the prices of the following players?

    Dustin Martin
    Jonathan Giles
    Mark LeCras
    Anthony Morabito
    Jack Grimes (risky!)

    Much thanks guys. Here’s to a wonderful 2012!

  13. Asking for advice and demanding advice are two completely different things.

    All I have asked of the forum was do they know the prices and i have always said please and thank you and if you don’t wish to answer then you don’t need to leave derogatory comments, the polite response would be to say nothing and not call people trolls.

    Once again i’m sorry that my questions have bothered you so intensely.

    I cannot get on to supercoach gold free trial as the computer i’m working from does not allow it and financially i can’t afford to buy one.

    I’m at the mercy of people’s interests in supporting others, it’s a shame you’ve decided what questions people can and cannot ask.

  14. On holidays and planning in getting some SuperCoach planning done over the next few days. What’s the best source of prices, DPP’s etc….??

    Also, can someone please explain the new rule regarding swapping players. Not the ‘Heath Shaw’ rule where you cna change your mind on a trade, the other one. I don’t get it.

    Cheers guys .. ๐Ÿ™‚
