Supercoach - Demons players.

Recommended Posts

Supercoach opened today and there are some cheap Demons players.

Jimmy Toumpas 240k

Dom Tyson 216k

Viv Michie 172k

JKH 117k

James Stauss 268k.

Will these players get a run?

Are there any other Demons of value.

Midfielders: Michie and Tyson great value if they can get in the team and average around 20 touches they will rise in value by heaps. Both Grimes and Vince listed in low 400k with an average score around 80 but both can score a lot more than that. Toumpas and Kent worth thinking about if you expect break out seasons.

Defenders: Again Grimes. Watts and Strauss if you are brave

Forwards: Clark especially and Dawes if you are braver. Hogan should rise his value by a fair bit but I think he'll only average 60 so you'll have to trade him out once he's gone up in value

Rucks: I'd stay away from our guys

I haven't got him (Vince) but I may as he will run more through the midfield and up forward this yeah and will be one of the main men unlike at Adelaide.

Clark, Tyson and Grimes are locks for me.

Blease hasn't been mentioned yet, I've got him on the bench at this stage. Has dropped to 179k and can be selected as a midfielder or forward. I'll wait to see where he fits into Roos' plans.

Clark, Tyson and Frawley for me. With a (hopefully) improved defensive mindset including midfielders spreading back to help out, this will release Frawley's attacking flair and he will average 80+ this year.

Wouldn't get Frawley - there is too much value in the backs this year. But I could end up eating my words.

I have Grimes, Tyson and Clark but have had Viv, Strauss and Blease already this year (and Stef Martin which was a dark moment). I think there could be some great value for melbourne with the first half of the season being somewhat easier.

Tyson, Hogan and Grimes.

With our improvement we'll be having more of the ball so individual scores will go up.

Hogan and Tyson both have been in the system ling enough and will be great for making some $.

Grimes will be back to his best.

Right now I have Grimes, Georgiou, Michie and JKH in my side.

I don't think I've ever had that many Dees in my side at one time!

Here's hoping they all line up round 1.

The lid has been well and truly been blown off on JHK, apart from us Dee supporters in the know, every man and his dog will have him at least as a f7or f8

Who else is loading up with Demons? I know it's a cardinal sin of Supercoach, but it's not without merit. Last season I selected about 5 Port Adelaide players and that delivered in spades.

Watts has now come into my calculations after the intraclub hit out. I was burnt last year, but at 411k, in a new midfield role, I think he's definitely worth the gamble. There really aren't many reliable forward options this year, anyway.

Grimes, Tyson, Blease (M7), King (R4), Watts and Kennedy-Harris are who I'm starting with. Would like to fit Minchie in, but Blease's dual position status gives him the edge for now. I also think Trengove is in for a big price rise, but for me he's too expensive for a midfield gamble.

Yeah I've squeezed Watts in, he is too cheap not to - plus as you mentioned, the midfield role. On top of that he is dual option for supercoach, forward and back.

I couldn't fit him in my star studded backline, so he is in my less than average forward line.

Drop Blease for Michie and thank me later.

I got burnt by Watts last year, he was tearing up in pre-season, come the 1st game, scored 15 - 30pts?? His feet never touched the ground as he got traded out. A waste of a trade. I wont be in such a hurry this year to pick him, I'll sit back and see how he goes regardless of his new role.

Michie and JKH must haves.

Watch and see if we continue the high possession game against Geelong, then load up on some more mids.

Maybe Watts should've been a mid all along.

I've been swayed by some astute demonlanders that this may be the case.

If so, Watts is a must have, it is certainly worth the risk, he'll be around the ball and is a SC dual position player.

At 411k, you could do far worse. Definitely a risk worth taking.

Dees are going to be like 2013 Port, but probably even better, we will be SC gold.

Dom Tyson is a must have, he'll end up around 450k,

All those mentioned appear to be good value. Though I'm wary of Blease. I'm punting on Toumpas to increase in value. (around 400K). If Bail continues the sort of form he showed in NAB cup 1, then might be worth a punt as well.

Yes, wary of Blease, too. Unlike Watts, he's never been a good Supercoach scorer. At 179k, it would be easy to save 50k on a true rookie.

Still, from intraclub reports, he would appear to be firmly apart of Roos' plans. I'll wait to see how he performs in the remaining challenge matches.

Unfortunately, after the game last week, I too have loaded up my team with MFC players! Yes its a cardinal sin of SC but at some time Melb have to become SC relevant and have our players score well - and consistently. And with PR's game plane (yes we have only seen it competitively in one game) the high possession style he has them playing means that the likes of Watts, Tyson, Toumpas, Trengrove, Michie, etc are now viable options to at least make some money if they don't stay in your team for the season.

For the record (at the moment, that is...) I have Watts, Georgiou*, Tyson, and JKH in my team. But Jack Martin could easily become Toumpas and any other mid rookie could become Michie and I have had Grimes in my backline at various stages. Yes, I was burnt by Watts last year as well so I struggled to put him in - but sometime it has to click for him. (But I am also starting to question my sanity b/c I also have Shaun Higgins in my forwards!!! :wacko: ).

* Assuming he gets elevated and plays round 1

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
