  1. 2599/Gawn/15 (Before lockout)

    Won 7/8 Grannys cheering for them but i don’t think I’ve scored high enough for top 1 ūüôĀ I’ve seen some massive scores so far. Netherless this year was great I’m very happy i was even ranked this high!

    I ended up trading Buddy who was a late out to Brayshaw happy with that trade

    Studs:
    Danger
    Neale
    Gawn
    Brayshaw
    Westhoff
    Lloyd
    Laird
    Cogs

    Duds:
    Gray
    Mclean
    Simpson
    Crouch

  2. 2675/Grundy/1312th

    Won 9 grand finals, including 2 minor & lost one by 4 points, so very happy indeed at Catta’s Clan headquarters!

    Stars on the big stage…
    Dangerfield, Macrae, Grundy, Gawn, Laird, Lloyd, Neale & Coniglio.

    Only real disappointments…
    R Gray 61, Hurley 62, McLean 66 & Simpson 72

    Thanks for the sensational efforts in 2018 to all the SCT writers, regulars & of course the man behind the scene the one & only superstar Motts ūüôā

    Cheers Catta

  3. 2423 / Gawn / was 1,345th

    Disappointing end to an awesome year. Won 1 GF (first ever), got hammered in two others. Very well done to Lisa. Congrats mate.

    Thanks to everyone for ALL the help and support this year. Couldn’t have got anywhere near here without all the articles, tips and advice.

    Great community. Hoping everyone achieved what they wanted and more.

    Here’s to SuperCoach 2019 ūüôā

  4. 2531/Macrae/was 8798
    Failed to win my important league, which was honestly expected but it was close with only a 44 point loss. I almost overcame that but was locked out of a Franklin to Hawkins trade before the bounce occurred. I was only making this because my opponent made it. I then brought in Gunston to take out a pod as Buddy was then named out. this was a 56 point difference which would have got me over the line.

    Studs: Westhoff, Duncan, Macrae, JPK and Hurn
    These were my pod’s that did well for me, Westhoff shot me out to a 60 point lead over Gray which gave me lots of hope and then an unmatched Macrae vc kept it up. JPK was actually going to be traded out until Buddy was a late out and i was surprised by that score. I needed 138 from Hurn today to overcome a Neale Loophole, but surprisingly my opponent kept in on Gawn which made it he had to score less than 110 for me to win. First 20 minutes went well and then well yeah……

    SPUDS: Mclean and probably Hurley
    Mclean really hurt me with his 66, my opponent had him on the bench and that worked well for him. He also had Dusty on the bench and 2 trades to use. That is some insane trade management. Hurley was just shocking through the finals. If i had to money to bring in Lloyd i would have done instantly, but Lloyd really killed me, never had the chance/money to bring him in and i lost to this same guy back in round 9 because of the 173 from Lloyd. Deja vu much.

    Anyway was surprised i made the final in my league as i really dropped off when it matter, but no more banter about my inability to make a GF.

    One last thing to say. Thanks for all you guys here at SCTalk, always a great place to talk about our teams and spend countless hours studying and making decisions for our team. These articles are gold and they help so much for new and experienced players. Not sure where i would be without them. Thank you all once again and time for a well earned break before the pre season planning takes over again ūüėČ

  5. Finished the season with a bang on 2696. My biggest score ever. Didn’t make any finals though…

  6. 2508/Gawn/ was 1657

    Didn’t lose a single GF – only because I lost all my prelims last week.

    Hopefully can maintain ranking but probably a little doubtful.

    Couldn’ t find a forward worth saving and F6 was always a problem.

    De Goey, Fritsch, Billings & Mclean all on field – yuk!

    Missed switching the VC from Ablett to Dangerfield as I didn’t have my laptop up when I saw Miller go to Ablett.

    My aim this last round was

    To maintain my ranking for the leagues I was in including Looney Mooneys & Cattas Challenge in particlar – tick

    Maintain my ranking to get into an LOEC league next year – probable tick

    Go past Allsaints in the Catta Cup since he knocked me out of the SCT Cup and one league prelim last week – tick

    Next year Grundy, Gawn, Macrae and Lloyd are first 4 picked next year as not having them this year has been the difference between maintaining my ranking of 14 at round 6 to slowly sliding away.

    Thank you to everyone who fought it out in the Fantasy Fiends and the Looney Mooney leagues.

    In the immortal words of Mr Grace from Are You Being Served – You’ve all done very well!

    Cheers

      1. C’mon Allsaints.

        Throw me a crumb as you won everything else.

        Maybe I’ll have to work it so that you get an invite into the Looney Mooneys (ranked 29) or Fantasy Fiends (ranked 212) leagues for next year.

        I was even in a league this year where I was in the top 1000 all season, third in total points and still couldn’t make finals.

        Considering the forward line – with the new rules implemented maybe the key forward will cease to be SC irrelevent.

        Looking forward to renewing hostilities in 2019

        1. the one league I created this year (SCT nutbags), i didn’t make finals despite being ranked second in the league for total points! go figure.

          I’d welcome any invitations to Leagues next year, especially cash leagues. Put your money where your mouth is Shaggi ūüėČ

  7. 2,712 / Danger / Was 250th

    Great way to finish what was easily my best year with 8/8 grand final wins (unfortunately one was against the TEAM).

    Just want to thank everyone at SCT for an awesome year, you guys helped me so much and I loved interacting with you all.

    Next year my team name won‚Äôt be ‚ÄúChef Curry‚ÄĚ but ‚ÄúChef Curry @SCT‚ÄĚ instead!

    1. The TEAM had a score big enough to win eight TEAM leagues. Unfortunately we ran into you in one of them. Well played, sir!

  8. 2,579 Grundy

    Won 2 Grand Finals and Lost 4. I won the coveted SuperCoachTalk Contributors League defeating our very own Chillo. Bad Luck Mate!

    Also beat Brad in Catta’s Challenge 2. Bad Luck Mate.

    The only Coach I know on the site that I lost to is Harbour Heroes in his League TalksCheapSosYaMum. Well played Harbour getting revenge on your Qualifying Final loss.

    Would just like to thank all the Contributors who have written articles for the site this year and all of the Forum members for their contributions , comments and banter over the year.

    Finally Go Pies in the Finals.

  10. 2671 brings an end to a solid year, victory in SCT2 GF, and should keep me in the top 1%, possibly pushing 0% and hopefully a place in next seasons LoEC!

    Again, all these figures are based on an analysis of the last five years, looking at what price discounts are allocated to players who play seven or less games in the preceding season. There are rules (as below) but it can get quite complicated. If my assumptions are correct, then these prices should be 99% accurate, so am hoping they prove useful for planning purposes.

    Please note, I am not sure what to do with Liberatore as he played 5 mins in game one for 13pts. I am presuming that they will treat him as someone who played 0 games and will therefore be afforded a 30% discount, rather than being priced at $123,900 (the norm, given his average for his one game)!

    The Rules:

    If a player plays less than 8 games then there are some generic discounts that apply (regardless of whether they are an established player or a rookie).

    6-7 games: if a player plays only six or seven games in a season, then he receives a 10% discount on regulation pricing. There are no exceptions I can find.

    4-5 games: if a player plays only four or five games in a season, then he receives a 20% discount on regulation pricing, again there are no exceptions that I can find.

    For one, two and three game players it becomes a little more complicated, but there are some rules.

    3 games: there are two rules:
    – If a player averages less than 50 he receives a 20% discount off starting price, and
    – If a player averages more than 50 he receives a 30% discount (yes, I know that seems counter-intuitive, but it is correct)

    1 and 2 games:
    – All players who average more than 70 receive a 40% discount
    – Rookies who average between 50 and 70 receive a 30% discount
    – Established players who average between 50 and 70 receive a 20% discount
    – Rookies who average less than 50 receive a 20% discount (but will not be priced less than the standard rookie price, ie what is $123,900 in 2018)
    – Established players who average less than 50 are potatoes and should not be considered under any circumstances ūüėČ

    0 games: you will find proj’d prices for those who missed the entire season under the Progress Scores for Rd23.
    http://supercoachtalk.com/progress-scores-rd-23/#comment-754788

    i’ll be providing all proj’d prices for all players who ave’d over 90 (by position) once i’ve done the math and will provide the rationale behind all these proj’d prices with that post.

    Happy planning SCTers!

  12. 2626/Grundy/10!!

    Managed to scrape in the 10, the trade of Coniglio to Hawkins putting dusty on field and Mclean on bench was all looking good until this afternoon, nevertheless this held on!

    Big thanks to this page for all the help and articles, I must say many of my decisions have been helped by you all and the articles give me great insight into players!

  13. Talk about Hot of the Press!!

    Awesome work All Saints

    Looking forward to your analysis of the premo’s averaging 90+.

    I have a feeling i am going to be trying to fit an $11,000,000 spend into a $10,000,000 budget

    1. have been working on it for a while but current thinking is:

      DEF: Lloyd, Docherty, Williams
      MID: Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, Kelly(or Coniglio), Merrett
      RUC: Grundy, Gawn
      FWD: Dangerfield*, D.Smith*, Dunkley
      *- if afforded positional status

      with one min. price rookie as a loophole this leaves an ave. $132k/rookie to fill the 30. that should leave me with enough cash in the bank to implement early round strategies. more on that later ūüėČ

  14. 2610/Dangerfield vc.

    2/2 by 25 and 31 points. Sad to be in so few finals but considering I dropped out of 4 finals, losing 5 in week one through putting Ahern on the field it wasn’t bad.

    Some never against lined up for next year. My end of season premo intake was trash, each brought in before massive price falls – Heeney, Hurn, McDonald to name but a few.

    Missing Jake Lloyd was probably the straw that broke the camel’s back this year.

    Final result 51458 points and 4547 place. Top 2%.

    See you all next year.

  15. 2599/Macrae VC/ Finished up 1056.

    Pretty disappointed I didn’t nab a top 1000 spot after sitting in there for most of the season.

    Thanks so much for all the support on this site, absolute fantastic community, no d*heads on the site, just encouragement, which is brilliant in this day and age of social media.

    Thanks to all the writers and everybody who has commented at any stage or even just whacked a thumbs up or thumbs down for someone.

    Already planning on a better finish in 2019 starting with a review of Allsaints post above, fantastic mate. (Although I have already made a list of 2019 possibles…)

    All the best everyone!

  16. Top players, by position below.

    If there is anyone you are looking for who is not here (eg Jayden Short), you can estimate prices in the following manner.

    Jayden Short: 1887 points from 22 games > ave. equals 85.7727273

    At the beginning of this season, the blessed number (the factor that SuperCoach used to calculate prices) was approx. $5987. Every year over the last 7 years this factor has increased by between 0.43% and 1.1%, so to get Jayden’s proj’d price range for 2019 multiply his average by the blessed number and add the percentage range:

    LOW = 85.7727273 * 5498 * 1.0043 = $473,606
    HIGH = 85.7727273 * 5498 * 1.011 = $476,766

    This is how all pro’j’d prices have been calculated below and is the initial equation I’ve used for all previous posts. I have excluded any player who played 7 games or less from the below as their proj’d prices have all been posted already. Unless SuperCoach throws a complete spanner in the works (deflation or massive inflation), I am confident that these are 99.9% accurate.

    Happy planning SCTers!

  17. Sweet!

    2653/Grundy/5582

    Won the GF in my friends league. Back to back premierships for the marksmen@SCT!

    Finished the year off with my highest score to date after a few years of playing.

    I’m well inside my preseason goal of Top 10% and finishedthe round at my highest ever rank and crushing that preseason goal by sitting in the Top 3%.

    Thanks to everybody on here for another great year. Wouldn’t be pushing myself so high if not for the knowledge I’ve gained on this great site from it’s wonderful community.

    …(Just a snippet about this SCT member)…

    Name: Nathan…Mantini
    From: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    Age: 32
    Metrics: Height…165cm? Weight…hover around 130lbs(60kg).
    Job: Restaurant Manager
    Sport-love: NFL (Go Jags!), AFL, PGA (never miss a major)
    Hobbies: Play guitar for hours every day. Mess around with photos I take. Chilling out at home with my girlfriend and watching TV.

    Team: Dees. (One of the highlights of my year was flying over to Melbourne with my gal pal to visit one of our good friends, and watching the Dees smash Carlton in Round 9 live at the MCG. On the trip I also got to see the Hawks host the Swans when Ronke kicked 7 goals (…I didn’t trade him in that week :(), and also saw the little Master and Danger and the whole Geelong midfield brigade against the Pies. (Sidebottom and Tom Stewart were amazing to watch live in that one. They really stood out)…Wow, that got long…go Dees!

    SCT Member: I think 3.5 years. Found the site searching what a BE is midway through my second year and discovered the best ‘research-tool-articles’ on the web when it come to SC. I randomly post, but I refresh the SCT home page multiple times a day ūüôā

    Sporting ability: Played hockey for about 10 years. Most sportsmanlike player multiple times. Golf…know what I should be doing, but can’t play enough, so when I do, the golf course is always a great place to swear my head off. Kicked a footy for the first time this year. The storied MCG was my first kick. In that first game of ‘kick-to-kick’ I had about 30 disposals (15k/15hb) at a 60% DE with 100% contested possessions, 12 marks, 75% contested, and 17 Inside 50s. Plus I managed to not get hit in the head by oncoming footies that were flying all over the ground from every direction so I’d say my ‘avoidability of confrontation rate’ is maxed out at 100% as well…174pts ūüėČ

    SCT goal for 2019: …Top 1%? I’ll lay out some solid plans once NFL season finishes!

    Thanks again SCT ūüôā I always have so much fun during the SC season. Appreciate the work!

    Dismal effort last 2-3 rounds seen me go backwards from top 500, was sitting around 200-220 for a couple rounds during the middle part of the year.

    Well done to the better ranking coaches….

    Last round heroes Danger, Macrae, Laird, Big Max and Goldi with Hurn, Zerrett, JPK, Oliver and Dusty also raising the bat. Only in one granny so duds didn’t matter this week as I won it. Cash league as well so makes it all the better – first cash granny I’ve won.

    Got up in the Tech League granny by a small margin thanks to Danger v Grundy as VCs and the gamble to play Flyin Ryan over Fritsch to replace Buddy. Really pleased as I set this as a goal to reach the granny right from the start.

    Not all goals are achievable obviously and the goal of staying in LoEC1 missed the target by about 16,000 places this year, but having been there a couple of times before, I’ll be back to hopefully atone for my worst finish ever. As they say in the pressers, lookin’ forward to it.

    Grats to all the winners and high rankers, and thanks to everybody on the sight for their contributions and the teams of coordinators, Hope you can back up next year.

    3/6 GF wins, plus a minor premiership.

    A slightly disappointing finish to the year after being ranked 1312 last week, but this has still been my best season ever by a long, long margin. Finding out about Buddy at 7:24 (with a 7:25 lockout) meant I had to cop Charlie Curnow’s 28. I think I knew at that point that any hope of sneaking into the top 1,000 was over.

    I also finished the season with an unused trade. If I had gotten home 5 minutes earlier last night it would most definitely not have gone unused, but after missing that I couldn’t see any trading opportunities that had a better than 50/50 chance of netting me more points, so I decided to just leave it be. Given my history of running out of trades early each year, I suppose in some ways it is symbolic of my maturation as a coach.

    In any case, finishing the season as well as I have has given me a huge amount of confidence going into next year. Bring on 2019!

    2. I’d also like to congratulate Jason and his team Harris’ Marauders on finishing on top in the Aspirational Class group (the group equivalent of the Salamander Island/New Salamandia leagues).

  21. 2613 / Macrae / 215

    Won 4/7 GF’s, but lost Cattas Challenge 3 league to Catta himself (congrats mate) & the Chicks League after winning last year, congrats to Julia. Thankfully had one trade in hand, which I used to replace Buddy with Gunstan (should have gone Breust). Not having Grundy hurt, but worked out that even with him, I still would have lost the other 3 GF’s, just. Apologies to All Saints in the SCT4 league, I almost feel bad for my win, especially after all your fantastic figures and effort above.

    215 is my highest ever ranking, up from a high last year of 2491, mainly in part to all the great advice from the SCT coaches & writers throughout the year, so thank you all so much for contributing to this great site. I’m sure I will now be a lot more productive at work, without the constant checking of ” supercoach talk” . At least until pre-season. After all, research is the key, especially as I’m hoping for another invite into one of the exclusive LOEC leagues, which was a highlight in my debut year, until I was knocked out in the Prelim…but I’m happy to have some wins today. Bring on 2019.

    Dropped over 2000 places in the last 4 weeks. I had many, many players who had poor second halves of the season. Some, Like Webster and Howe, from injury, and other, like Ed Curnow, Heeney, Robbie Gray, and Toby McLean, who just spudded it up. Shawn Higgens of course, now that I have had him I can add him to my never again list!

    I did learn a lot. each year I learn something that helps me the next season. That will be a write up for later though. ūüôā

    Since this is my best ever finish, only the fact that it was a drop from a much better rank has me unhappy. Had I started badly and fought my way up, I’d be happy. Interesting that!

    See you all next year, or sooner!

  23. 2517, grundy, 561 overall.
    stoked to finally crack the top 1000. In the 4 years I have been playing sc I have gone from 32,407 to 2,944 to 1,034 to 561 and I largely owe that improvement to the sctalk community.
    I thought I might just miss out on top 1000 this year as was 444 pre round, had no trades, didnt have macrae and was fielding liam ryan and lienert for howe and buddy but both rookies were decent cover and helped me across the line.

  26. 2512/ Danger/ lost 300 places to be around 3,200

    Got done in all 3 GFS and one minor. The scores were big this week!

    Couldn’t bring in Lloyd in the end and would’ve like to have traded McClean a few weeks ago, but otherwise had a very strong season.

    Finished with an average of 2,245 which is clearly my best, so onwards and upwards for next year. Not letting the boys do a mad Monday this year so they’re primed for next year! Thanks for the advice, Cornes ya numpty.

  27. 2517 / Gawn / 4883 overall

    Won my only league grand final (was knocked out of the other 7 during the finals).
    Peaked at 29th before the byes and then went backwards from there. Ran out of trades in round 21 so had to hope for the best.
    I haven’t played SC since the first year it started, so finishing in the top 5000 and in the top 2% of all players for the year is pretty rewarding.
    Thanks to all of the advice and comments from everyone throughout the year, onto bigger and better results next year I hope!

  28. 2446 / Danger! / 6526

    So many spuds! Gave back all the ground in the rankings that I gained last week and lost all three grand finals. Disappointed but it’s actually my best finish ever, so I guess that’s something.

    Cheers to everyone at SCT for a great year. Trying to keep track of scores with the time difference the past couple of weeks has been challenging – Schwarz and all the other ‚Äúinternationals‚ÄĚ, I don‚Äôt know how you do it!

    Only 207 days until SuperCoach opens again…

  29. 2,692 / VC Grundy / 166 overall (moved up 64 spots).

    Rapt with the finish, definitely exceeded my expectations for the year. Post-byes I had set the goal of moving within 1,000 points of the leader at the end of the season (ended up about 1,150 back).

    Thanks for all the articles and advice throughout the season!

  30. 2705/Grundy/1090. Best season ever…..kept rising 200-300 pts each week after byes which was the plan. Rose 477 this week…season is too short !! Nearly put v on danger to neutralise oppt and was just short of Mclean to Menegola. Only made two gf’s after being buddied and parkered…would have won all 6 with this week’s score….if, if, if…!!!!
    Now, to sit back with allsaints’ stats bibles and start on next year. Debut for Francis, thanks Simmo, Fyfe off to the Higgins cellar.

  31. 2,407 / Macrae

    Limped over the line. Fell from 194 to 393 overall. Still my highest ever finish very happy to finish top 400!

    Plenty of lessons learned for next year, should not have fallen from 59th to 393rd in the last month. Zorko never again, lost almost 200 in three weeks choosing him over Bont with my last trade. Not having Grundy and Lloyd proved too costly as well.

  32. 2,663/Dangerfield VC/7,445

    First full year playing and despite a midseason bye slip up (went away for work and had no internet for the entire bye period) managed to get into the top 10,000.

    Just throwing it out there to any brisbane Supercoaches if they are keen to catch up for a beer and start a league next year. None of my mates play and it would be great to play with a bit of banter. If you’re keen send me a meaasge on FB http://www.facebook.com/tom.m.martin.9

    First time using SCT this year and it’s an amazing community with quality coaches and fantastic content. Preseason starts now!
