For those who take it way too seriously

That @TerryinBangkok bloke does alright.
Dive into his musings...

Reflecting SuperCoach fortunes, ORFFA coaches either posted record scores or had a very ordinary weekend. One coach had read the tea leaves and didn't turn up, while other teams were riddled with no shows. Three close and exciting matches, some wipeouts and a record first round score.

The boys from Wagga (1230) went down narrowly to the Cockies (1295). Good for Ant to get one of those close ones out of the way early, while the Wombats give a glimpse of return to form this season. The Cockies had a handy 112 from Shagger Hurn, while Matt Crouch (105), Jack Steven (125), Wingard (110) and Aaron Young (112) all put in tons, with Sandi on I/C tossing in 104. Six tons in all and the only damp spot being Harry Taylor limping off on 19. Wagga managed six tons as well, with contributions from Barrass (101), 4 in the guts from Oliver (123), Gibbs (116), Shiel (129), Swallow (110). This was added to by Sicily playing up front with 125. Alas, not enough.

Our next match was the train wreck and the thoroughbred. Hard to believe that the Larrikins could field players who did not play and still manage to field them out of position. With ball tampering, I guess anything goes.The Lefties posted a score of 784, while the Waikiks trotted in a casual 1224. Accidental tons to Seb Ross (113) and Berry (103) were the aberrations and a public spanking will be meted out at training on Monday at the Lagoon. For the ex- Kiwis, TMitch (167) held up the midfield on his own, while Parfitt chipped in with a nice 104.

Next up were the highly confident Hoppers (1340) who copped an uncharacteristic smacking from the Vultures (1505). Nukes are heading towards Venus Bay as we speak. Three tons not enough for the Hoppers, with Cripps (130), Billings (133), and the Curnow brothers adding 126 and 95. VB had 5, with Yeo (109), Parker (149), Buddy (175), Greene (131) and Stef Martin cleverly on I/C...
Supercoach is back! And with it, the highs and lows.

For me, I dodged a lot of bullets. Dodged Ryder, Krueze, Rockliff, Zorko, Adams

Of course, I couldn't dodge them all, and got nailed with Liber.

Meanwhile, made a lot of hits with Laird, Dusty, Titch, Coniglio, Billings, Gawn and Sicily.

A couple of the big ones I missed were Simpson, Cripps, Bonner, Greene, Shaw

Also, my bench selection was WOEFUL, with Naughton, Barry and Fogerty on the field and Doedee, Finlayson, Holman and Kelly sitting on the bench.

At least I won't have to trade those guys in those.

All in all, I'm looking at about a 2200 so far, which is a decent start considering.

Have left a good 300 points on the bench though with poor bench choice already though! which STINGS!!

Gunna be some big 2500 scores around I reckon!

How'd you all go first week back?
After a long offseason Supercoach is BACK !!!! Hopefully this is your year to jag the 50k.

Good news guys, I've got this up and running again this year for SC.

It's by far the most effective thing on this site to use, so get in there if you haven't used it before! Also a great way to check out your Bye profile :D

The Trades remaining and Cash doesn't work, so if you're using the Trade Plan stuff, you'll need to fill those in Manually.

Fantasy and DT won't work, but if you run into problems uploading your SC squad, let me know!

I'll have a play with AFLF and see if I can't get it up and running this evening. Will keep you all posted.
Ok, there's been some chatter around the place and a TG teams is looking ready to go for the 2018 season

Yep, mid-price madness has got a firm grip on me once again.
Many would argue there's plenty of traps here and unlikely that all these mid pricers will see the journey.
Granted, not choosing any of the top 14 fwds from last year seems risky.
Not sure i'll hold my nerve on this by lockout. We'll see.

Selecting your fantasy team before the season gets underway is always a tedious and time-consuming affair. It's always tricky trying to fit those big-name players into a budget that always seems just a little too small, as well as looking for that diamond in the rough that no one else will have in their side, but you have a feeling it's their time to shine.

Quite often, many people will have the same top-tier stars and it's usually the breakout players that tend to make the difference between winning and losing. We're talking about young talent that is about to have their best season yet, someone that is on the verge of unleashing their full potential upon the league. Predicting who these new game changers are going to be is no easy task, but if you can manage to pick them correctly, the rewards for your team will be massive. There are several things to consider when scouting for one of these players, so let's take a look at a few viable candidates that could be ready to explode in 2018.
