Your Favourite Player – 2015

Written by MJ on August 12 2015

Every season throws up one or two picks that you just love having in your side. It might be a POD that you selected ahead of a bandwagon that lost its wheels. It could be a player who has rallied late in the season after a poor start and won you plenty of games to charge into a top 4 spot. It may just be someone who you couldn’t leave out of your SuperCoach team year-on-year.

In my case, it was Brandon Ellis in 2013, David Swallow in 2014 and it’s got to be Todd Goldstein in 2015, with Dayne Zorko has coming a close 2nd with his late season run of form!

Who have you loved to own most in 2015?

  1. Goldstein and Heath Shaw. I wasn’t planning on starting either (didn’t have the cash for Goldy, traded Shaw in 10 minutes before I found out he was rubbed out for the rest of the season in 2011, pre reverse trades). Very grateful that I started both, as they have been my most consistent all year.

  2. One? Well, I am glad I grabbed Goldy at a good price early on, but I am happiest about starting with Swan and Dusty. Not exactly unusual picks, but I am happy with them.

    I am glad to see Newnes in my team because he ended up fine and I have one more trade than I would have had I traded him out during his rough patch.

  3. My votes goes to…

    5 – T Goldstein
    4 – S Higgins
    3 – P Dangerfield (traded in Rd 2 for T Rockliff)
    2 – H Shaw (traded in Rd 11 for M Johnson)
    1 – S Jacobs (traded in Rd 12 for S Mumford)

    Goldy was first player picked and took a punt on Higgins and have been handsomely rewarded.

    Fortunate to have converted those 3 LTIs trades into quality premiums who have performed exceptionally well.

    There have been plenty of hard & bad luck stories this year with injuries, however, those players helped to ease the pain and the main reason why my team is still alive & kicking in 2015.

  4. I liked Bonsai’s 5 votes system so I’ll do the same.

    5 – Dangerfield – Started with him as a slight P.O.D, hasn’t missed a beat. First picked player.
    4 – Higgins – Started with him against common thought. has been a star down back.
    3 – Goldstein – trade him in for TBC when he bottomed out at low 500ks. hasn’t dropped below 120 since. If only I had started him or jumped on a better cash cow ruck.
    2 – Zorko – traded him in at 400k and besides a bad game 2 weeks ago, he hasn’t dropped below 90 and has posted some monster scores. Huge P.O.D.
    1- Sloane – Hasn’t done well in terms of SC output but he has given me plenty of material to make snapchats during the year.

  5. Goldstein, Probably the best player iv’e ever started with as he’s gone up nearly 200k and providing Gaz like scores

  6. Goldy #1 by a country mile. He’s been amazing from round 1 and hasn’t missed a game. That alone is impressive, but top that with the most points for the season in the whole league! Wow. Hopefully all this talk doesn’t put the moz on him for the last few rounds!

    Otherwise Danger has been fantastic, Fyfe (up until his rested weeks) and Mr Dependlebury.

    My happy POD is Dahlhaus. He’s been great most weeks and is the 4th highest scoring forward this year! Only 12.4% of coaches have him.

  7. I like the 5 votes system too, my only criteria is that I’ve owned them for every game since round 1:
    5: Goldstein
    4: Fyfe (despite missing a few games, still a permacaptain when fit)
    3: Higgins (because solid defenders were so hard to find this year)
    2: Pendlebury
    1: Priddis

  8. How man people started with goldy and blitz? I started with goldy and nic nat and until recently been reasonably happy, but if you saw blitz scoring like he is then you’re a bloody genius or a lunatic!

  9. My top 3 would be
    3 votes burnman Higgins has been super great this year for 410K averaging 98
    2 votes Mark Blicavs after trading him in for Bellchambers around rd 7/8 he has been pretty solid low score of like 70 and only cost 470K at the time was a good risk
    1 vote would go to underrated SuperCoach player in Callan ward has been pretty consistent averaging 106 apart from being flat the last couple of weeks

  12. These lists are very short! Just shows what a tough year it’s been in Supercoach.
    I’d like to see the “misses” list for everyone in 2015!

  13. Going with 5 starters still there:
    5 votes: Goldi, taking on the perma captain role a lot.
    4 votes: Fyfe, loved having his reliability as C in the early rounds with all his Sunday games
    3 Votes: Missy, with only gut feeling to go on he was there even before round 1.
    2 Votes: Lachie Neale. Another of those gut feelgood stories for me as I predicted in a thread last year that he would be a 100+ guy and he’s stood up.
    1 vote: Cripps, through circumstance after circumstance, he’s still there. Can’t knock him!!

  14. 1-Goldy – obvious reasons
    2-Higgins – we all knew he could do what he does with a full season in him
    Props on not getting injured (knock on wood)
    3-saad – ok he’s gone missing lately, but when you needed a solid rookie defender earlier in the season he sure stepped up!
    4- j steven- wasn’t sure about getting him but listened to the sc talk community and he has not let me down!
    5-newnes – ok he had been a big work in progress but it’s nice when that progress ends up being worth the weight!

  15. Goldy – don’t need to elaborate
    Steven – intended as as a stepping stone to Ablett but has performed consistently, nearly matching his 2013 numbers.
    Heath Shaw – highest scoring defender having his best SC season
    Blicavs & Dahlhaus – traded in after Rd5. Both solid, they were essential in sending me into top 3k early…….

  16. As far as PODs go, I took a punt on Clancee Pearce at the start of the season for $260k, and whilst he’s out of the team now, with limited good defenders on offer he played plenty of games with plenty of good scores and only a handful of stinkers….. In short, he was probably my best gamble for the season.

  17. Most teams worry all season was down back, I started with Shaw, Hodge, Higgins and Gibson so big shout out to those guys.
    My top 5 votes are for players that started in my round 1 team:
    5) Goldy – Captain hat last month or so and huge ceiling
    4) Shaw – Expected better average than last year but 112pt is a shock
    3) Fyfe – When Ablett was gone he comfortably wore the Captain hat
    2) Higgins – Almost averaging 100pts for starting price of $410k
    1) Swan – Has shown enough from yester years to scrape in with 1vote

  18. Alot of the same as above. Starting with Goldy was fantastic – Most favourite players all year would be Goldy, Shaw, Hodge, Danger, Swanny and Martin. Cripps was brilliant, especially being a blues man, just wish I held onto him – damn you rockliff!

    Two PODS for me were T Adams, who I started with and while I havent kept all the way to the end, was very solid with some great scores, and A Treloar has been my other, who I brought in RD8 and still have

  19. My top 5

    1) Missy. As a starting defender it’s hard to have had a better season from a somewhat risky POD

    2) Goldy. Traded in at the byes as a fallen premium, his end of season form has been remarkable.

    3) Cripps. An outstanding run of form for a rookie. Traded perhaps a little early. Should be a shoo-in for rookie of the year.

    4) Fyfe. An insanely good start to the season hampered by injury at the end. The overall package when he’s fit.

    5) Dangerfield. Danger avoided his normal early season start and has kept this form up all year, despite the trade conjecture.

    Unlucky to miss out – Saad, Oxley, Hannebery.

  20. I’ll have to break it down into 2 sections: Best from the starting team and best trade-ins

    For best from the starting line-ups:

    #1 has to be Goldy – started the year with Goldy. Unbelievable scores – we will be paying $700k next year for our starting ruckman!!

    #2: Higgins – averaging 98 for Def this year has been a stand-out!

    #3 – Bob Murphy – very reliable and underrated in SC terms, averaging 92, was my 1st picked defender and hasn’t disappointed!

    Best Trade-Ins:
    #1: R6, Dangerfield @ 522k – has averaged 126 since
    #2: R8, Adam Treloar @ 490k – has averaged 106 since
    #3: R13, The Bont @ 417k – has averaged 102 since

    Worst trade: Ousting J. Selwood for G. Ablett in R15!! That trade pretty much sums up my SC year
