    Re: ASF Super Coach

    Private league starts this week ASFer's. I'm up against the Daredevils. I'm a little worried because I don't have any Dees or Tigers in my squad. Well actually I have one tiger who is playing with the Bullants at present and hope he makes a Comeback. :) Could be a high scoring game. But in Round 5, I face Lachlan's Red White & Blue. Almost every player in his squad has accumulated cash. They guy has made $1mil in the first three rounds, I'll probably get thumped. :( Oh well it's only Round 4.

    Update
    Richmond Riewoldt scored out of his butt 147 from memory in a team that got done by 10 goals vs. the Dees. However, the Daredevils still put me to the sword.
    Same can be said for Lachlan's Red White & Blue. My team got completely pasted. By the way do you guys realize that Lachlan's team is ranked 167th out of 300,000 odd teams. :eek::eek::eek: It's kind of like YABLETT vs the rest...

    Anyway, hands up who has to trade out a mid this week. If not, who's going to take a 0 in the midfield. I'm sure plenty will be trading this week.

    I noticed that Jonathon Brown has a B/E of 218 this week. Price drop coming!!!
    Do I hold or sell??? :confused:

    If you're talking about Ablett, yep, he's keeping it up! Average of 146 so far and his price has dropped by only $9K. He's truly a freak.

    Of course, despite my comment that he was overpriced, I've still had him in my team from the start :D

    Reasonably happy with my 2-0 start, despite some key members of my team underperforming horribly (Jolly, Mitch Clark, Vince, Tippett, Ryan Bloody Hargrave) and some of my mid-priced punts failing to step up as I hoped they would (Ball, Dangerfield).

    I agree there'll be a lot of trading this week. I've lost Dangerfield out of the forward line, Dustin Martin and Brodie Moles out of the midfield, and both backup ruckmen in Warnock and Lobbe, but luckily have coverage for all of them so won't be forced to trade to avoid a donut.

    Lachlan definitely looking the one to beat. I'm in another league which is ranked 22 of 31,000 (I'm 0-2 and ranked a long last in terms of total points), and while there's some awesome teams there, Lachlan still has them all covered for total points scored so far. Great team mate.

    You'd have to say that the luckiest team so far is Sean's Prawns (kennas?) with two wins despite failing to crack the 2K mark in either round so far! He'll be tested this week by the Little Green Frogs though ...

    Hey son of baglimit

    Your team would paste mine.

    This is my first year of supercoach. Will be better next year.

    Currently im sitting at 71,879.

    I'm a Saints fan. We haven't had a perfect season

    But as some Saints supporters would say on www.bigfooty.com

    Re: ASF Super Coach

    I've had a crap year. Was a little unlucky with injuries but early good picks are crucial. I didn't get on to the pre season potential players and started with old expensive players. Poor darts.

    I'm 164,000 out of 386,000.

    Pretty ordinary from someone who thinks they know the game. I'll accept I know less than my 10 year old niece.

    Sometimes life just isn't fair.

    Poor old Lachlan's Red White & Blue has gone through the entire season and the first week of the finals undefeated, and has heavily outscored every other team in the league over the year.

    Then in his first sudden death final, Cooney goes down early with a hammy, Malceski, Harry O and Dustin Martin put in shockers ... and suddenly the season is over without even a GF appearance. Ouch. :banghead:

    Sorry Lachlan, better luck next year. :D

    Well done to those who have participated this year.

    The same group will be up and running next year.

    I hope Sean's Prawns perform better next year.

    Re: ASF Super Coach

    i feel your pain.

    this season is easily my best, and entered 3 weeks before the finals with 4 trades left, secure in the top 4 in my league and decided no more trades til the finals.

    week 1 and i lose 5 players at the selection table, then 3 more in the hours before games. naturally lose.

    then the next week it happens again, and i lose out to someone who has scrapped into the finals.

    hell of a finish. learnt a lot this year. out to break into top 5000 next year.

    Re: ASF Super Coach

    Ok I want to be in the league this year. Anyone else.

    New game. New Rules. First Prize is $55,000. Lachlan with RedWhite&Blue could possibly take that out. Considering he was undefeated all season last year and ranked in the top 200 in Australia out of the 300,000 odd teams.

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/supercoach-is-back-for-2011/story-e6frf9jf-1225997617702

    SUPERCOACH opens today for 2011. Here's a quick run-down on the new rules and some early bargains for your team.

    Australia's biggest fantasy sports game will be bigger than ever in 2011 with a new team, Gold Coast, and new rules. Anyone can play so don't miss out on the action.

    Among the changes for 2011:

    - squads are up from 30 to 33 players, with an extra player on the bench in the forward line, midfield and defence

    - coaches have 24 trades for the year, up from 20 last season

    - private league matches start in Round 1

    There are no private league games in the "multi-bye" weekends when three teams have the bye - Rounds 4-6, Round 16 and Round 19 - but player scores on those weekends still count towards the overall prize.


    Prices are generally down across the board to accommodate three extra players in each squad within the same $10 million salary cap.

    This season will also be the first to offer a premium stats package called SuperCoach Gold and a new game, SuperCoach Pro, that features a live draft.

    Here are some potential early bargains:

    Drew Petrie (North Melbourne)

    Priced at just $216,600 after missing much of last year with foot injuries, he is worth a lot more.

    Andrew Krakouer (Collingwood)

    Former Tiger gets a second chance at AFL level after starring in the WAFL last season, including 41 disposals in the Grand Final. He is priced at $200,600.

    Tendai Mzungu (Fremantle)

    The Dockers love a mature-aged recruit (think of Michael Barlow) and 24-year-old Mzungu could uphold the tradition. He averaged 28 disposals a game playing as an attacking defender for Perth in the WAFL last season. Available for the bargain price of $110,200.

    David Swallow (Gold Coast)

    The No.1 draft pick hasn't played a game in the AFL but has two years of senior level experience and has already been labelled the next Chris Judd. Priced at $188,600.

    Nick Duigan (Carlton)

    Another mature-age recruit, the 26-year-old former Norwood defender attracted rave reviews at Carlton's intra-club hitout last weekend. The Blues need defenders so he could step straight into the team and he's just $103,600.

    Nathan Foley (Richmond)

    Remember when this guy was bursting out of the middle for the Tigers? It was nearly two years ago but after recurring ankle problems the ball magnet seems right to go again in 2011 and could be a bargain for $364,000.
