Hey bud! Ended up winning 2584 to 2459! He captained Hall while I stuck with Macrae VC.
If I had been a little bit braver and stuck the (C) on Laird or Hall, I would've gone past the 2600 barrier! But nonetheless I've won my main cash league for work for the third straight year (this is also my 3rd year playing SuperCoach)!
The colleagues are probably sick of me completely!! :LOL::ROFLMAO:

Overall I finished with ranking of just under 4.3k which I'm fairly happy with. I think I took more of a "safety first" approach in player picks/trade-ins this season and wasn't as aggressive or was reluctant to take risks in certain situations. Probably something I'll need to look at next year along with NOT trading rookies early and also learning to get my VC/C picks correct more consistenty lol

Just wanted to say a big thank you again for all your assistance/advice this season. This thread is probably my favourite thread on this forum and you do an unbelievable job answering all the questions thrown at you with concise stats & reasoning that sometimes makes one wonder "wow I never would've thought of it that way!". So it's much appreciated! 🙏

Enjoy the playoffs and then the off-season! See ya around on the other threads!

@Darkie thanks to you as well for the advice/tips this year! It's always helpful! :)

Well done @Rumbler - 3 league wins from your first 3 seasons is a huge result!!

Hey Row, hope you are well!

I'm thinking a little ahead to next year with this one. This year I made a fast start and was top 1k at around round 4 or 5 from memory. But I also found it a curse as I found myself focusing significantly on overall despite being a very outside chance, to the detriment of my cash leagues.

What I'm wondering - has there been any work done on where, historically, the 1st and 10th place finishers found themselves ranked at each round? It would be good to graph it, and understand statistically when to cut losses and focus exclusively on leagues (assuming the player isn't chasing an overall PB).

Thanks!

Is this something your SC Data tool can track...?

It actually not that hard to determine this for the current year. Using the rankings page and the followed by filter you can determine which team the winner follows and the dial back to round 1 and find that team with the followed by filter applied and tap on them to find the current overall rank. For example SuperCoach Mumma follows Geelong, scored 2081 points in round 1 and was ranked 7987 at that time.

If the team is hard to find in round 1 just go forward a few rounds where they will generally be somewhere near the top of their team followed rank and you can track backward by taking weekly score off total score. For example SuperCoach Mumma was 20th ranked Geelong supporter after round 2 so easy to track back to round 1 from there.

Hey Rowsus or anyone overseas, just wondering how do you watch games from Europe? Asking for my cousin. Thanks. Hehe.

I have Watch AFL.
It costs $200/year, and you get all the games, and the ability to replay them. You also get some of the Foxtel footy shows.
Can second that the WatchAFL is very good, although I don't remember it costing that much so there might be some geo-gouging going on or it's gone up a lot in the last 2 years.

Other option is a VPN and Kayo/Foxtel Go but it's not as good an option if all you want is AFL.

It might depend on what region you are in.
The last 4 seasons have cost me $199, $199, $189, $189.
That might be the price for Europe, but other regions might be cheaper. I have no idea. I'd be interested if any of our Asian or US members have it, to compare.

Looks like my memory is going, I paid the same in 2017 and 2018 ($189). Might have been the NBA or NFL pass that was a fair bit less (they definitely have strong geo-gouging)!

I paid $25 a month in China about five years ago. Don't know the annual rate but think it was about the same as what you're paying.
