  2. 2527/Rocky

    Killed by uniques Dal Santo (49) and Ward (77), but great scores elsewhere including Sloane (172). Livid about selecting Dal Santo mid year because of the Kangas run home, the guy is an absolute squib, horrendous call.

    Although very happy with the Liberatore to Rocky sideways trade R16…

    Hoping to jump again from 174?

    Season PB. Pity I’m only in finals in one league.

    Nicky Dal and Hurn were the only real disappointments.

    Not sure how but managed to win my elim final. Was hoping one of ChCam and Higgins would play – both did and Higgins tonned it up to get me home, despite a backline donut and benching Stef’s 105.
    Champs were the usual suspects but also TEX!, Jaegar and Miles.
    Not going to name any chumps, too pleased.
    Won’t win next week against Robbo, but it’s been a great first try and I’m planning for my second season already. Thanks to everyone at SCT, my only regret is not finding you earlier.

    Really wanted to loophole Tom Rockliff, but didn’t have the right floating donuts on my team. Shannon Hurn and Matthew Pavlich, you’ve gotta lift boys. Steve Johnson on the trade watchlist if he is suspended, despite still having Anthony Miles; who is absolutely killing it right now.

  6. Wow run home is so overrated. NDS just is so lazy as a player. Will only pick next year if dpp. And to think when I got him I had Ward and Priddis at the same price

    Won 3 Q finals and lost 2 eliminations.
    Pretty stoked to start my first finals campaign off with a couple of wins even if I could have won more if Rocky was captain. Stupid move by me hopefully can learn from that one. Big shout outs to harry taylor and Tex Walker for being bloody champs..! Nicky Del, JJK and even Jacky boy watts need yas to lift. I trade to go..

    Steve J killed me. Sloane and Rock brilliant.
    Won 4/5 including a win over you BS in LoEC 1
    Guys do you know if you’re the loser from 1 v 4 match do you play winner out of 6v7? Or winner of 5 v 8?

    Won the 3 leagues I’m in. Buddy was the worst score I had. Hopefully he can lift in the next few weeks. Sloan and Barlow had some great scores

    Crushed in 3 of 4 leagues. On paper, with my players V opponents, I shouldn’t have lost … so much for the “premium” factor!! Beaten in the leagues I lost by what most would call “fringe premiums” (and of course Rocky who I don’t have sadly) … I mean when you lose to teams with Ebert, Jaensch, Petrie and Chapman, it really sucks!!

    OFFENDERS
    Stevie J (creepy crawler factor, but still), Pav (still stuck with him unfortunately), Libba (you lazy waste of space after 33 in first quater then went missing for rest of match!!), Minson and Mitchell

    That knocks me out of one league, I have second chance in two others and have won my main league (thankfully my opponent had similar “so called premiums” to me!!!)

    Ahhhhhh ya just gotta love this game eh?? On to next week!!

  12. 2469/Pendles

    Lost my qualifying final by 1 point. 1 f**king point. Scaling between Pendles & Nic Nat got me in the end, having been level pre-scaling.
    Who can you blame after a 1 pt loss? I’ll choose to blame the soft & unreliable LeCras for pulling out of a match where the Eagles had a field day & left me with Dud Wingard’s 62 as cover. While on Wingard, is it too much to expect one decent game?
    Nevertheless, got the double chance so will be back next week, although if Roughy is suspended again, I could well be out in straight sets. Fairly spewing right now.

  13. 2619/Rockliff

    Both my highest score of the year as well as my highest score ever so can’t really complain. Won 3/3, though there were definitely some spuds…
    Pavlich has killed me since trading him in, had a choice of him or S.Martin whom was on the bubble and decided to invest the extra 230 odd thousand in what i thought would be reliability… Hopefully it doesn’t cost me too much in finals! Wish I still had trades though 🙁
    Along with some recent curtailed performances from Jack, Bartel and Libba, that’s about all I have to complain about…

    Trading out Sandipants to Jacobs in round 16 has proved to be a masterful trade so far, as it also coincided with a large uptick in form from Goldstein, the rucks have almost singlehandedly been winning me games since then!

    Sloane, Rocky, Sauce all posted big scores and Mitchell (82) and Libba (84) were the two lowest scores for the team. Lucky enough to have the week off in all 5 leagues

  15. 2285 / Fyfe

    Went down in a 2 v 3 clash by 43 points. Had to replace Swan and heard rumours of Nic Nat late out meant using 2 of 6 trades to S.Martin and Matty Stokes.
    Was down on budget so was looking at Ebert/Stokes/Burgoyne. Went with my gut after looking at Stokes’ 99.9 avg, but he had to come up with his lowest score of the year of course. Could’ve done with Ebert or Gaff instead or Pav and Buddy lifting but anyhow, onto next week….

  16. 2463 / Jacobs. 3/3 wins so surprisingly got full week off.

    After Stevie J’s 50 & Scotty D Thompson’s 42 I was up against it & probably 100 points down on Yiorgas & Sharpies in LoEC1 & SCT Cash on Sat night. Selwood’s VC of 128 was handy, but not enough & others had me matched as the C on Pendles. Waited until 30 seconds before the Crows game & put the C on Jacobs (was a toss up between him or Sloan). Thanks to Jacobs’s 164 (x2) & Sloan’s 172 i was back in the hunt & opposition were then stiffed with Minson & Dollhouse respectively. Absolutely stoked after having no luck for a couple of weeks.
    Great game Yiorgas – apologies for the lucky win. Hopefully we get to play off later in the finals.

  17. 2406/Pendles after Fyfe not getting the benchmark.

    Won all five Q finals so pretty thankful for the week off in all leagues next week, conserving my last two trees.

    Had to take Kerstens 35 because my strategic trade to Caddy went pear shaped before I even started.!! Theory was Caddy ave 95 last 5 and coming off 112 was the way to fill a spot with a DPP and leave me $100k to luxury trade to Rocky next week. That’s dead after Rocky had another gazillion!!

    Heroes, Sauce got me over the line in two leagues, and Pendles, Beams, Selwood, Fyfe, Jaensch, Paker. Not so good, Mitchell, Libba, Dahl and kersten (not his fault).

    Dropped twenty spots to 77th.

  18. 2572 / Selwood

    Won 4 leagues, but drew in my paid league with the equal top score in the league.

    If I had have trusted Rockliff, I would have got the win, instead I played safe and took the safe approach. Minson’s worst game for the year didn’t help.

    Tex and Petrie finally came to the party on a positive note. Great POD’s this round.

  20. 2645 selwood. Got the week off in five leagues and got back inside the top 1000 for the first time since pre byes. Also had the C on rockliff but played it safe with selwood. Traded Wingard to A Spina to get goddards score off the bench. Leaves me with 4 trades and a healthy war chest. Jacobs, Sloane, Rockliff starring. Ward the only let down.

    Got through all leagues and rose to 250th.
    Concerns with Stevie J and Roughie. Might have to use my last trade.
    Overall, happy days at Buncha City!

  22. 2435/Hanley (backfired badly)

    Tightly (despite not taking Selwood’s VC score) won 3/4 qualifying finals out of my 4 leagues. No trades left and only the one match to worry about for upcoming Round 21, so in waiting for the 3 Prelims praying to the gods from here on out with no trades left.

    Studs:
    Selwood, Sloane, Goddard, Simpson, Murphy, Beams, Pendles, Parker, Gray.

    Duds:
    Franklin, Wingard, B.Smith, Libba for the most part were the bad ones.

    A good week overall for Cliffy FC. 🙂

    Won 1 Q final , 2 elim finals , and 1 minor Q final. Lost an elimination final by 9pts to an opponent I lost by 3 pts in the final round that cost me a double chance.

    I’m only in one league and lost my matchup by 32 points. Unfortunately I had a doughnut in Langdon but nothing I could do about it with my bench omitted too and no DPP options.

    Looking forward to next year!

    24th best weekly score which is a PB after 2 seasons for the Paragons. Zero trades so glad I have a rest in all 5 leagues and hopefully this is the week all AFL coaches choose to rest players.

  26. 2290 / Selwood / Ranking 6556

    Not a terrible score but it was such a high scoring weekend. Lost three of my five finals matches. I won a game by 13 points against a team that had two donuts. Felt bad at first, but then again, if you have no trades and no bench cover then it’s not really my problem, is it? Rules are the same for all. Luckily had the double chance in two leagues so still in with a chance in four finals.
    I’ve said it before in this forum, there are only so many things you can plan for in Supercoach but there is still that little bit of luck involved over the course of the year. I specifically picked a couple of PODs for finals time but you just can’t foresee them having a bad game (for whatever reason).
    Very disappointed with:
    * Ward – loved his output this year but needed more on the weekend
    * Dal Santo – easy SC finals run and he starts with 49, bugger me
    * Minson – worst score of the year…..of all days. Most opponents had Jacobs with 164…..such a huge difference
    * Sam Mitchell – perhaps a little harsh on someone who got 82. But he had 30 touches. When Selwood has 30 touches he scores at least 130.

    Slowly planning for 2015…….

  28. 2244 – Pendles
    Lost 3/4 finals, still alive for the work one and only going for the minor in another…
    Studs -Tex(finally), R. Gray, Parker, Beams, Pendles, Fyfe and Selwood

    Duds – Dunn, Dal Santo, Caddy (great score for a Sub) Pavlich 55 – loopholed to Paparone 30..fml

    My scores in the last 3 weeks have been crap, POD’s haven’t worked at all, this game drives me crazy!
