Word is he is playing for sure. Whether he breaks down after 15 mins is another issue entirely.

had Gallen C Smith VC

would've taken cam's score in a heartbeat

hope Gall has a huge one and plays the full 80.. been a few solid captain choices so far already

I need Gallen to score 80+ for any chance of victory.

So many players fired for me this weekend, except my bloody captain Fensom.

Dude I'm playing has massive balls playing Mateo as captain - well played sir.

I'm "Rosso e Bianco" in the ITM2 league.

My mate in another one of my leagues got 5th overall this week with a 1400+ score, pretty crazy. He won our comp last year and looks like he is peaking at exactly the right time

I'm facing Tom Sangster in my H2H semi this week for the aforementioned league. He is struggling though, has so many players injured (Hayne, Halatau, Mannering, Parker).

Our starting 17 teams are almost exactly the same though with SC Gold predicting he will win by 1 point. Will be a very close one

FU Graham
FU Parker

Cost me wins in both ITM leagues.

I really held onto trades this year as I always used to limp into the finals with no trades.

Oh well... always next year.

Good luck to the 12 teams that are left in both leagues...

Part of the supercoach challenge is picking your team before the lock out. I got stung last week with CP and Graham but not even mad , part of the game.

Agree, that's half the fun taking risks and not being sure if certain players will be taking the field or not. I really hope they don't change that as it is a great aspect of Supercoach.

i think it'll be an improvement. i was skeptical about the double trade and reverse trade features this year but they have enhanced the game.

late mail has been shocking this season.. alot of coaches play mind games and you find late inclusions every week where the players don't even rate a mention in the news. then on the other hand you have situations like graham last week where he finishes the game, is named for the week after, mail says he should play, but then ends up pulling out. there's tons of examples where coaches are penalised through no fault of their own.. like when a player does an injury in the warmup.

i do think this may extend the gap between diehards and casuals even further and may make it even less competitive, but i play in a ladder full of tragics so this will be better for everyone

So Parker looks set to play. Will he be kicking? Will he play 80 mins? I think no on both.

I agree but what about rolling lock outs just for the finals? That way you don't blow a whole season's worth of effort because of a dud call in the media.

Rolling lockouts only work well for fantasy games where you dont have the same players.

Having the one lockout with so many similar sides means you occasionally have to weigh up the risk/reward for starting a questionable player to try and gain the advantage. Having a rolling lockout will eliminate that part of the game making it even more even which sucks.

I agree with most of you guys in not changing it. Rolling lockouts would create much less banter as well. As I am not a part of the ITM league..sniff, our "banter board" is full of stuff from the last couple of weeks Moga -1, Carney 0 etc. Plus, giving it to people when players pull out at the last minute etc. It's half the the fun!

Quite obviously a lot of people didn't have Graham and Parker in their teams last week. I know both Expletive and The Milkmen both had them but they faced each other which worked out fair in the end.

The trade I made last week were on the proviso that both Parker and Graham were playing. I moved Mateo to 5/8th at the expense of Marshall buying Gallen.

This left me with 4 trades. If I had of known both Parker and Graham were out I would of left Marshall as is and simply swapped Parker for Gallen.

Yes I got an auto emergency for I.Luke but I purposely didn't want to play him especially with him coming of the bench.

So this actually cost me in both ITM leagues. And considering it is finals time I had absolutely no chance of beating a team like Zodiac or Broero with 16 scoring players

14 behind in my main H2H comp with a player in hand (Merrin) so I should win comfortably. Thanking my lucky stars that my man Tyson Frizell smashed out a big score for me this week. I hope Mannering comes back for the Warriors next week otherwise I am fucked with Farah out injured. I will have to use Sezer as my 4th reserve.

Predicted score of 1329 this week, pretty happy with that.

So glad I saw the writing on the wall weeks ago and sold Isaac Luke when he got suspended. His scores have been dropping for a while now and this week was terrible....
