  1. What would I change? Me taking out Pendles at the start of the preseason and just thinking… He won’t average 129 again. Surely not.

    167 odd first game… FML.

  2. I would change what I would change EVERY year – the last minute panicked changes I make (usually after “x” is named on the bench for the first game – as though that means anything these days).

    I would also have spent some money on defenders; Boumann, Morris, Ellis and Clarke … yick !!

    Of course I also would have put the big “C” on Pendles … now wait for Gablett to be tagged out of the game …

    Reasonably happy. Pendles, Murphy and Buddy standouts. Back rookies look like being the bane of my life!

  4. 13 played / 1064 / GAJ (did i get the formatting right, it’s been 6 months so i can’t remember)

    * Happy i selected Buddy, Murphy
    * Thinking that not selecting Pendlebury may have been a bad move
    * Mucked up a few bench/emergency selections with the rookies but that’s going to happen in Rnd 1

  5. 954/11/NDS

    7 prem, 2 mid, 2 rookies and the captain score to come.

    Maybe shoulda, coulda, woulda given Krooz more consideration… Shoosh Motts
    Spewing I didn’t give more thought towards Lids, Birchall or JackyRoo. Expected more from Martin. Only first round though. Surprised by Jolly but burnt me too much last year. Not going there!!!

    I’ll be stoked if I can crack 2k this weekend.

  6. 15/1359 Thompson captain.

    Pendles is a total freak of nature. So wish I had him….

    Buddy, Mitchell and Birch all did me proud.

    Hale was serviceable. Will start Giles next week and put Hale in the Forward line.

    Left Bugg on the bench, both Ellis and Clarke scored poorly in the backline. Shiel left on the ground too, so a bit disappointing there.

    Fairly happy with my team, but would have just changed my bench rookies

    Standing by my choice to not have Pendles,

  8. 12/1124/GAJ

    8 prems and 2 rooks to go

    no real worries about my team, only would have been 20 points more in any case so im pretty happy, be good to crack the 2k first go though

  9. 13/1222/GAJ

    Quite happy, still with 6 prems and Lake, Porps, Magner
    Only 4 players have cracked the ton, but 6 players between 88-96
    Very happy with Pendles over Swan, just wish I had made him El Capitan
    And the swannies on top of the ladder ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. well well well.. do I deserve what I got replacing Pendles with a POD in Swallow.. yes, yes I do.. do I wait n see how he goes nxt wk n maybe trade him in? or wait as planned till rnd 8-9 to get him in? FML… at least Murph, Buddy + my GWS have made me smile.. hopefully the kids can keep up even 3/4 of that n I might hav Pendles sooner rather then later..

    Traveling quite nicely. Very happy with the team so far. Had $50 on pendles for most possessions at $4.50 too. Going to do it every week I think

  13. 1212/13/GAJ

    6 prems (Godd, Broughton, GAJ, Jobe, Cox, Fyfe), 2 Midpricers (Dempsey, Howard) & 1 Rookie (Magner) to come.
    So glad I paid up for Pendles. Hoping I feel the same way about Massive aswell.
    Would be looking a lot better if Cloke could kick for goal, but I knew the risks.

    Overall, pretty pleased.

  14. Very happy that I chose Pendles over Swan. Also pleased with Birch and Buddy with other prems getting a pass. Thought Ellis was ok for his first game but worried about how little ball Morris found. Tough baptism for these two with the Pies to come.

    My 2standout mistakes sofar I had Morris on the field instaed of Mohr and i had Wilson (GWS) in my team instead of Kennedy.
    Still to play
    Magnet,Dickson,Godd,Fyfe,GAJ,Joelwood,Cox
    Will be satisfied with 2000+

  16. The Giant-Less Experiment (alternate formula) is going well with the team i made for my girlfriend standing at 907/9/GAJ (only 2 more rookies to play rest premiums)

    Other team (composite formula) is going okay 1075/12/GAJ (rookies let me down in ellis, shiel, cognilio and smith but pendles, franklin and kreuzer dominated)

  17. oh and so much for those so called “experts” at super coach HQ telling us to leave out pendles and franklin, haha no idea.

  18. 943/11/GAJ

    Initially going to throw the laptop out the window when seeing Pendles score after trading him out 3 minutes prior to lock out. However Ellis and Morris’ low scores convienced me it was too big a risk with a backline of Clarke/Ellis/Darley/Morris/Smedts, so Pendles became Selwood and Smedts became Lake, with Clarke benched this week. If Lake outscores Clarke by more than Pendles does Selwood, all may not be lost. Unless of course Smedts carves it up and locks his place in the Cats best 21, then all may indeed be lost…

    No rookies left on the field for the rest of the weekend (not counting Porps as a rookie), and with Parker, Sheil and Ellis’ scores already counted, I might just be able to sneak a score above 2000 with my 11 remaining men.

    Quick Sat morning poll for those interested, will Selwood make my day with a score of 130+ (thumbs up), or will he ruin my weekend with a sub 100 score and 3 weeks off with concussion (thumbs down, obviously)? Anything in between will neither make me or break me…

  19. I say it at the end of every year – only buy guns and rookies. Hope scores below are going to get better over season.
    Sidebottom 72
    Hale 82
    Malceski 83
    Martin 89

    Rookies will improve and $$$ will increase regardless of big scores so not as worried by Smith 55 and Clarke/Ellis 50.

    Why I went 5 prem in miss without pendles I don’t know

  20. 12/1120/ GAJ cap

    Only early days, but pleased I paid up for Pendles and Buddy. Also happy with Birch’s first game.

    Clarke and Ellis a little disappointing but you can’t expect the rooks to shoot the lights out. Having Bugg as an emerg stings a little.

    Have quite a few premos to come inc GAJ as cap and Magner only playing rook left so I’d be wrapped to crack 2K in first week.

  21. 1308/13/Buddy

    My only vent is switching Kennedy off the ground for Shiel right at the death last week. Happy Buddy got his act together in the 2nd half and Pendles is so silky smooth its a joy to watch.

  22. 11/1081/GAJ

    7 prems 3 mid-price(Lake Golby & Macintosh) 1 Rook to play..

    I’m very happy now that i went only 2 premo defenders because I’ve still got some serious scorers to come. Looking like I’ll get over 2k no prob (fingers crossed lol)

    Bad start last Satday night, having Kennedy and Bugg on the bench. Swapped Shaw>Birchall last minute which worked well. Didn’t have Pendles, and wish i had cyril. But the best thing about last night was: GO HAWKS!!!
    Still to come:
    PREMIUMS (6) Ablett, Watson, Fyfe, Broughton, Boyd, Goddard
    MID-PRICERS (2) Lake, Porplyzia
    ROOKIES (1) Hall
    Hoping to finish with 2100 + ๐Ÿ™‚

    unsure why I took Martin this year. Perhaps it’s following the hype but last year I swore I wouldn’t have him in team. Oh well spilt milk etc etc. I am glad didn’t take Mitchell over pendles although by half time I wouldn’t of said that! Not much fun in SC this week as no head to heads? When do they start?

  26. 1216 / 13 / GAJ

    Not tooo bad. No Pendles looks like a bad move. Hope Boyd has a big one along with GAJ. Also need Dangerfield to continue NAB form, the PORP to get 80+ and B Lake to at least do better than Hargrave! ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Lucas only sub!
    Bugg on bench
    Zorko not named
    Kerridge only an emergency
    Might all go to pot or might be still tracking for 2000+
    Fingers crossed.
    Oh and Thommo better smash it

  28. Hey guys new to supercoach so could you let me know how I’m going? Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

    13/1115

    1 rookie, 1 mid price, 7 premiums (including captain GAJ) still to come

    Shiel left on the field hurt, slow starts to the season from Cameron and smith did a bit as well, Morris And Clarke did pretty average in the backs. Pretty pleased with the rest of the team so far.

    Hoping to get over 2000

    Thumbs up- Doing good
    Thumbs down- Pretty average

    Comment as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Very similar to you Duck.
    1130/12/GAJ

    7 premiums to come
    (Goddard, Broughton, Ablett, Selwood, Cox, Fyfe, Pavlich)
    1 mid pricer
    (Lake)
    2 rookies
    (Magner, Dickson)

    2200 is still a real possibility.

    Bad moves to date:
    *Choosing Morris and Boumann
    *Having Bugg and AKennedy on the bench

    7 prems, 4 mid-pricers and 2 rookies to go.

  31. Thinking I might regret selecting a lot of mid-priced guys like J Lewis, Dangerfield, Zaharakis. Lewis only 80 last night isn’t enough.

    Time will tell though. Happy enough with Maric and Hale

    Clark will improve…….I hope. He was cheap anyway so might be one to turn and burn

  32. 967/10/GAJ

    Happy with my decision to select Buddy, Mitchell and Pendles. Questioning selection of Hale, but still only round one. Annoyed that I had Cameron instead of Kennedy from GWS.

    Pleasantly surprised with being able to access the super coach site with 10 mins before the bounce. I assumed I wouldn’t be able to log in.

    Overall a solid start, with the same captain as 400,000 close friends.

    Just worked out the score thing, doh!
    Pendlebury 167, Buddy 142, Kreuezer 125, Murphy 119, Kennedy 104 & Lid’s 100, Swan 92, Heater 91 & Dusty 89 get me headed in the right direction.
    Rusty 72, but will improve.
    Coniglio, D.Smith, Clarke & Ellis give me 50-59 scores, which is good enough @ this stage. They’ll ripen in the sun.
    Happy enough at this stage, GAJ, Goddard, Massive, Fyfe, Lake, Porpoise, Smedts & Magnet to finish.

  34. I guess most of us have him, but I’m super happy to have Magner on field @ this stage. So close to benching him for Clay Smith this week.
    Grimes started well also. Wasn’t brave enough to pick him.

  35. I just tried that 14 day Supercoach Gold trial just to see how many people have selected some of the same players as me (was most interested in Pendles – 25% of teams have him), but I was shocked to find that the highest ownership rate was Franklin at about 63% owned and that Gablett is only in 53 % of all teams – 47% of teams don’t even have him, which strikes me as absolutely ludicrous.

    So fess up – who here decided not to get Gablett and why (surely even the non-football following nuff nuffs know Ablett is awesome) ??

    SuperCoach Magnet limping with what appears to be a left ankle, lower foot, injury late in the match

    4:21
    He has 99 SuperCoach points! Ole mate Sammy Landsberger says Magner missed a few weeks of training in the preseason with an ankle injury… not sure if it’s the same one.

  39. 1st trade of the year…..wait for it…….. DANGERFIELD,
    Why the Fk did we buy into his pre-season form!!
    If you can’t touch it against the suns, good luck against the better teams. I’m already mad!!

  41. Not that I have Dangerfield in my team, if you read this thread you would be left to seriously think the guy got 20 sc points v GC Suns…….it’s the 1st bloody round & IMO it’s no good bagging your selected player until at lease the game is completed!

    It’s a long long season & I believe Dangerfield ended up with 93, not to shabby I would of thought!

  42. Sitting on 1616/16/GAJ (subject to Suns Crows altered scores) with Duckwood, Watson, Heppell, Fyfe, Broughton and Redden to play.

    If I can get a hunjee average out of those I’ll be very happy with 2200+ start to the year.

  50. Supercoach aside (though he does well in SC) Nat Fyfe is a GUN! This season will see him become an elite AFL player. In 3 years time, he will be close to or the best player in the league.

    Broughton/Lyon disappointing, should have followed my gut with Adcock. Still should be around the 2100 mark with Goddard, Lake, Redden and Dickson.

  58. 1688/17/GAJ

    Boyd, Goddard, McEvoy, B.Ebert and Cripps to come.

    Broughton. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ The only real issue at the moment.

    Aiming for 2150, but I’d be happy to just beat last year’s R1 score of 2102.

  59. 2087/GAJ with Redden to come.

    I’d love to crack the 2200 but anything over 2100 is a great start.

    Broughton will get a call into the office for a chat Monday morning and then I’ll have a look in the coach’s mirror and ask why I missed 90+ points not giving Kennedy and Bugg a run.

    And finally, lest we forget………..Carn the Mighty Hawks ๐Ÿ™‚

  60. 20/2020/ Gazza

    Goddard & Lake to play.

    I was hoping to break 2200 for the 1st round but I’m not overly confident anymore!

    Thumbs up…………2200 is there & will happen!
    Thumbs down……..You’re dreamin, it won’t happen!

  61. Shaw, Newman, Heppell, Lake, Ellis, Smedts, Bugg (Boumann [E], Brennan)

    Mumford [VC], Kreuzer (Giles, Redden)
    Franklin, Fyfe, Martin, J Riewoldt, Bate, Porplyzia, Kennedy (Saad [E], Hall)

    Regrets: Picking Mumford over Cox, Listening to others and not getting Rance, Cotchin, Stanton, Ryder or Palmer, Leaving Magner on the bench..
    Dropping: Bate
    Considering: Dropping Newman, throwing Deledio in DEF, then picking up Stanton.

  64. whats going on fella’s…. so my team is doing ok i guess, a few upsides.

    2001/ 20/ GAJ.
    got Boyd & Redden (port) still to come… so hopefully 2200-ish.

    Upsides.
    Got Luke Parker, 60 in half a game is great, bench till he comes back.
    GWS rookies (Kennedy, Smith, Bugg) been solid this week.
    Mumford played half-arsed and got 96. He’s gonna be a beast. 120-ish???
    Magner, keep making me that money kid.
    Clark (50) will only get better, if he hits 65ish -75ish i’ll be happy.
    Martin (89) Surely can only get better.

    Downsides.
    Morris on the field instead of Eliis (20 points down). DUH.
    Broughton (57) Tagging (was expecting 90+ , swap Birchall in???)
    Martin (89) WTF??
    Danger (93) seemed lucky he got that. didnt look like he touched the ball much.

  65. 1st lesson learnt playing supercoach……go with your instincts, not someone elses opinion. took ryder out of the ruck to go 1 premium in there, so i could get dangerfield in the fwds. big thumbs down

    If Godd and Cox tear it up and dickson goes ok on debut i could get pass 2200 which i would be very happy with

    Have Goddard & Lake to finish off the week. Hoping to get to 2200, which seems like a solid start. Left some points on the bench with Bugg & Kennedy as emergencies, but I suspect that a few may have done that. Having Ellis, Broughton, Clarke and Smith all score less than 60 on the field hurts a little. There is a reason some guys are called premiums though, so thank you to: Murphy, Franklin, Rockliff, Ablett, Fyfe and Selwood

  69. D4 Position trade for Broughton:

    Thumbs Up – J.Adcock – ($490,300) RD 1 – 140SC

    Thumbs Down – G.Birchall – ($509,600) RD 1 – 103SC

    I know it’s early but I can’t stand watching Broughton tagging someone whilst Birchall and Adcock run through the midfield and backline doing what they want.

    Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

  71. Things I learnt last night (North vs Dons):

    – Stanton is earning respect by the minute
    – Dempsey has improved ALOT and is now very hard at it with quite good foot skills
    – Hille, Fletcher, Lovett-Murray and Mcveigh are more important than people think
    – Melksham has got to improve his kick
    – Hooker is not strong enough to compete with the big forwards… he gives too many cheap free kicks away when they beat him
    – Hibberd is one of the most hard-at-it players I have seen down back for the Dons. He looks very good
    – Hardingham has to be put on a small forward – he can’t compete with the big guys
    – The team has to look for Hurley’s leads more, he is getting frustrated
    – Zaharakis, Jetta and Monfires all have to lift and crumb better
    – Watson’s kicking and turning over ofthe ball was disgraceful
    – If Ryder doesn’t get lazy, he could be up there for the Brownlow
    – The Dons will finish from 6th to 10th with North, St Kilda, Fremantle and Sydney filling the rest of those positions

    And last, but definitely not least:

    – DYSON HEPPEL IS GOING TO WIN A BROWNLOW!

  72. 1764 / 19 / Mumford

    Mumford let me down as my captain. I thought Caddy was going to be better. From what I saw Watson had a bad game, but he actually scored alright. Broughton and Johnson were both SH#T! Swallow can be better.

    Happy with Giles, Bugg, Deledio, Martin, Shaw, Franklin, Porps, Ablett, Watson, Fyfe, Selwood…

    Smith subbing for Kennedy next week and also Coniglio subbed for Magner.

  73. One of my opponents in an open league has the worst team I’ve ever seen:

    940 from 18 (Captain played – Captain was Danniel Connors, Vice Captain Kane Lucas) O.o

  74. Not sure if anyone else has noticed yet, but if you go to “Match Centre” in Supercoach, you can now actually see all your opponents scores and how many of their players have played etc. In most of my leagues it looks like the top score will be close to 2,300 at a rough guess.

  75. Ha Ha Ha – In Dreamteam, I have a league where one person has a team comprised ENTIRELY of Western Bulldogs players … must be a Collingwood supporter …

    Same league there is a team comprised entirely of Sydney and GWS players (except for the bench weirdly – where no players are from GWS or Sydney). All players have played – it scored a total of 740 points … Team name: “The Awesome People”. Man I’m getting my comedy fix early this Sunday !!

  77. 1910/19/Gaj, with Redden, God and Lake to play, also had six scores of less than 60 on the field, so not a bad score really.

  78. so far pretty happy with my choice to go bartel (and a spare $50K) instead of selwood, hopefully it pays off in the long term with bartel keeping up with selwoods points, scoring just as good or better then him in most games, then using the $50K to go towards an upgrade for a very good premium maybe a week or so earlier then most people will be able to.

  81. Oh – you poor ignorant, IGNORANT sap Catta !! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    LOL, go to “Match Centre” on the left of your team. All the teams in your league will appear at the top of the screen along with their score. If you hover your cursor above them it will tell you how many of their players have played/Captain played or not. If you actually click on them, it will take you to their full team (so you can see if they have Cox, Boyd and Goddard coming up).

    Morris vs Smedts vs Boumann for D9??? (0-0 draw for mine)

    We might struggle for decent cash cows early in the piece

  87. Hi Ok odd question. If I unhappy with my team and Instead of trading could I simply leave the league I am in. Rejoin with an improved team and carry on as usual. Seeing as I only playing for league win and not overall can this be done. And league games dont start till R3 Making sense am I?! Thanks guys.

  89. sitting on 1940 with Goddard and Redden to go, will be lucky to crack 2000 at this rate, oh how I wish for unlimited trades back with 6 on field players all getting less than 60 each, Coniglio, Ellis, Broughton, Lake,Hall and D.Smith all not safe.

  90. redden subbed out, got 22 hitouts and 12 disposals. 2 free kicks for. not the worst first game iv seen. not a huge impact on the game but i think he will slowly work up to 100% game time. definately will do his job and make people lots of cash. wont pump out 100. but for his price, great work.

  92. ok guys i’m super excited because i just did some maths ๐Ÿ˜‰

    in the last 2 hours before the final lock out i made a last minute desicion to downgraded swan to selwood, then decided to downgrade selwood to bartel so i would have an extra $50K in the bank along with the $110K i already had giving me $160K in the kitty for upgrades in a few rounds time, left it at that then didn’t look at my team again till lock out (kicking my self coz i didn’t notice this earlier) i was just looking at my team, I have lake and clarke in my defence who did some very average performances this weekend. if my calculations are correct i worked out if i downgrade clarke to atleast a $113K rookie, the extra cash from that, along with cash i had in my kitty can go with lakes $286 and i will have enough cash to upgrade lake to premo under $500K (if i get a $106K rookie i may be able to get birchall) if not someone like heppel, yarran, suckling.

    what are your thoughts on this?
    thumbs up- Make the trade benno
    thumbs down- Wait a week or so and see how things pan out.

    if thumbs up comment people you think i should trade in.

    Cheers guys ๐Ÿ˜€

    special mentions to Magner, Mohr, Bugg & Giles..
    On Notice: Goodes, A. Swallow, Martin.

  97. Bit disappointed with score of 2070. Should have stuck to my guns and kept Kruezer and not so happy with a couple of rookies but they’re rookies and inconsistent so they’ll deliver a good game once in three or four.

    I’ll be getting young clay smith before the bubble nothing surer!!!

  101. 1959 … got my rookies completely wrong. Played the ones who should’ve been on the bench and vice versa.

    * Played Shiel (34) and Congilio (59) and had Magner (102) and Clay (102) on the pine
    * Played Lake (30), Ellis (50), Clarke (50) and had Bugg (88) on the pine

    Disappointed with week one. Need to regroup and do a Kieran Perkins from lane 8 to win the 50K!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    goal for next week is 2250

    ups and downs for my team round 1:
    -happy with most of my premos like pendles, buddy, GAJ, goddard, boyd etc.
    -so far happy with my choice of bartel instead of selwood.
    -hope a few premos like mummy, goodes lift next week.
    -hope broughton plays in the mid next week, killed me last night.
    -not sure what to do with lake
    -bugg, kennedy were great.
    -shiel on the field instead of magner cost me 70.
    -redden on the field instead of giles cost me 20.
    -Morris on the field instead of ellis cost me 20.
    -Ledger (on my bench) hopefully gets a game next week or will trade him for smith.

  109. 2164…Satisfied with that first up. Its always a raffle getting the rookies right. Broughton is on thin ice (#FURL). He gets one more week to get a game in the guts. Golby as well, if Dempsey scores well again this week.

    Seriously considering the old switcheroo between Ledger and C. Smith. And Crapps is very lucky there is no decent forward rookies to replace him with!

    Great effort by Brabert with 111 which was a real gamble selection.

  110. 2031/GAJ

    The good – Picking up C Smith on the buzzer, Magnet, A Kennedy, Bugg,Giles

    The bad – All the above being on my bench…. except Magnet
    My backline……Terrible….Lake, Broughton, Clarke, Ellis…the former two a real concern….

    My second Lake free team scored 2190..Go figure…

    The plan – Hold my nerve for another week….

  111. 2107-thrilled to have even cracked the 2k mark after a dismal effort.

    Won 2 lost 2. Someone I played got over 900 just for their midfield alone (bosses daughter). Still, I got 11 points more than my boss so I won’t have to hear about that all week. After a terrible weekend due to poor decisions on my half I think I got out of jail.

    Most happy with (list order) Goddard, Guthrie, Pendlebury, GAJ, NDS, Buddy, Fyfe. Unhappy with: LAKE (you spud why did I pick you), Broughton -I take that back, Lyin’s fault in reality, myself for choosing Shiel over Magner, expected a little more from either Cripps or Devon Smith. Pissed I left Kennedy on the bench (giants).

    SCTTL: where to begin. Score 1908. Mumford as Captain. Sounded like a good idea at the time! Lake you spud why did WE ALL pick you, again! Was expecting Clarke to do better than Guthrie and prove me wrong, but he did not. Christensen didn’t do much but it’s a bit hard to when you are the “lucky” vest warmer. Porpleizia gave me a scare at the start but he came good in the end. My big mistake was naming Pfeiffer on field and putting the green emergency cap on Saad. who played for Sandy today.

    Topped off with my team losing tonight, there it is fellas- absolute comedy of errors. You either laugh or cry! Or in my case, drink. Another glass of wine it is, then.

    Hope you all fared better than I did.

    Happy considering Shiel, Lake, Broughton, Clarke.
    Happy I got rid of dickson but choosing ledger over smith hurts now that I have to burn a trade and magners ankle? Hmmm

    Only 2 regrets so far, choosing broughton over adcock and lake over hargreave.

    Broughton will bounce back but Lake I’m not sold on, he didn’t move well and is head was not there, I’m happy we tore the doggies up but what was he doing trying to take MOTY over hill, 2010 lake would have outbodied him, I think he will be my first trade!!

  113. Year of the Fish – 2158/GAJ

    That’ll do Fish, That’ll do. Still big room for improvement and there are going to be some huge scores especially for RD1 but said before the weekend I’d be happy with 2100+ and am-ish. If redden played the game out I would have cracked 2200 and been a lot more content.

    Missed Bugg & Kennedy’s scores which cost me 87 but Old Mac and Magnet made up for that pain. All rookies look good enough to at least hold their spot and besides Orennsen, Morris and Ledger scored well enough.

    Got my finger hovering on the trade button with Broughton. Last night had him gone for Lake with Morris to Guthrie and Orrensen to Big Broc. That won’t be happening.

    Big ups to Buddy, Mitch and Duckwood and extra mention to GAJ for not folding under all the Pendlebury hype.

    And finally…..Carn the Mighty Hawks (don’t worry, I won’t like this all year but god it’s good beating the Pies in a cracker to get the year off to a flyer)

  116. Hird of Me?: 2096

    I’ll take that, considering a few individual dismal efforts. Most of my guns stood up, just need better rookie selection for my field.

    Happy with:
    Pendles, Buddy, Rockliff, Selwood, Ablett, Goddard, Fyfe and The Bombers!

    Could be better but not terrible:
    Hale, Golby, Porplyzia,

    Shattered with:
    Lake, Morris, Ellis, Shiel

    Expect a big round next week. Happy that i avoided Broughton, looks like a rollercoaster season again for him.

    Hopefully everyone here on SCT had better luck than me!

  124. Is there a chance we have already seen potentially goal & mark of the year in R1?

    I watched Cyril’s mark live & it was simply FANTASTIC, you know it’s a great mark when 1000’s of Collingwood supporters were appaulding as much as the Hawk supporters!

    And is Yarran’s goal going to be named….the Wayne Harmes goal?? Sorry Motts, it was a wonderful goal to watch on T.V, I could only imagine watching it live would of been pretty special!

  131. alrighty then, remps’s wrap-up.

    great weekend of footy to watch. loved the intensity of matches like the freo geelong game. had a feel of watching some 70’s and 80’s matches with the umpy letting lots go. was great for the game!

    3 games within a kick of the footy, and one shot after the siren made for plenty of nail biters, and it lived up to everything i expected with looking at the draw coming into the weekend. i thought. “bloody hell, i might either tip 8 this week or 2. its that close!

    now to the fun stuff ๐Ÿ˜€

    we all experianced the fun of the rookie selection game. who to play. who to start. the last minute changes, trades, and the utter rage when your watching and your rookies get subbed or just kick clanger after clanger.

    personally, i started off the week by leaving 192 points on the bench in the form of giles, j mac and kennedy. ๐Ÿ™ but always better to have scores like that in your team at least, even if theyre on the bench.

    copped some low scores on ground from the usual suspects people have. sheil, ellis, hall, D smith, and a bit disappointed in the porps first showing, and even moreso from brough.

    good first games from bugg and redden on ground saved my scores.

    my favourite pick for the week was yarran. locked him in about a month ago and have struggled to avoid upgrading him. but i love the kids pace and efficiency and it should bode him well for the year.

    with 6 scores of 90-100 from premiums i expect to average 110+, i think there could be LOTS of high scores this year when the big guns fire in coming rounds.

    overall i scored 2119 with gaj taking the big c.

    next week:

    judd to dominate brisbane?
    watson to get 40 disposals against port even though they will flog us?
    should be a great battle in syd/freo
    cox to score 200 against a pathetic melb, but magner to get another 100 ๐Ÿ˜‰
    trav cloke to kick 7, pendles and swan both over 150 against richmond
    boyd and s thompson to battle for possession title
    all our rookies battle the roos.
    ablett takes on st kilda
    and how many will buddy kick with scarlet gone for (probably 4-5?) weeks. lets hope 10 ๐Ÿ˜€

    thats all i have to say. sorry for taking up so much room. haha. keep enjoying supercoach everyone!

    Not too disapointed as my team has have plenty of upside (i think).
    CUT ME DEEP: Lake, Parker and having Shiel on the ground instead of either McDonald or Magner. Having Parker and McDonald off for a few weeks blows. Wondering if I should trade Parker and Lake for Mitchell and Mohr (Have spare cash).
    Hoping for more from Golby and Porps. I can cop Dangerfield’s, Shaw’s, Martin’s and Goodes’ scores for a few weeks, but if they don’t improve, trades will be burnt.
    Bring on roudn two!!

  135. hey guys

    so i’ve used up one trade before round 3 pearce hanley in for jack watts,
    i’ve decided im trading in sam dwyer & leunberger for Mark Lecras and either jarryd roughead or patrick ryder,

    my final trade for the week i’ll either trade roughead or ryder for dwyer

    and after round 3 utilising the other RUK/FWD i keep into the forward line.
    and trade Lecras for leunberger considering leunberger wont rise for another week, which will help me generate cash before ryder and roughead drop.

    both their forms have been almost equal.
    who would you trade. Ryder or roughead?????
