I thought I'd use my 10,000th post to rehash the rules of the board to clarify a few things and redo all of the links and helpful sites. If you think something is missing, and needs to be added, please let me know. I've ripped bits and pieces from SJ's rules and from ones I've written for other areas of BigFooty.

SuperCoach is a game. Fundamentally, we are all here because we love the game. The beauty of the game, is that everything is speculation and opinion. Whilst many use facts to back up a point of view, at the end of the day everything is guesswork. If you post on this board enough, there will be dozens of examples of where you are both right and also very wrong.

As such, it is important to acknowledge that people have differing opinions and viewpoints and just because someone doesn’t agree with you, doesn’t necessarily mean they are wrong. In here, as it is in face to face interactions, it is important that everyone has a mutual respect for each other. Arguments are fine, disagreeing with someone is fine and articulating that in a respectable manner is fine.

Generally speaking, the golden rule of thumb is that if what you post would be appropriate in to say to a colleague in the workplace, it’s okay to say here.

SuperCoach, as all boards are, are governed by the BigFooty Terms, located here : http://www.bigfooty.com/forum/help/terms

As an extension, or more specifically:

Rule 1. We encourage rigorous debate as long as it stays on topic and subject. If you attack the man then you risk infraction; when responding, attack the argument not the poster.

Rule 2. Avoiding the swear filter by altering a letter or two even though the word is still obvious will be deemed deliberate and will incur an infraction. If you feel the need to swear in a particular post then just type the actual swear words and let the swear filter do its thing.

Rule 3. Posting any information on or ridiculing the personal details (real name, photos, job, place of residence, marital status or family members etc) of another poster will also earn you a nice holiday from BigFooty.

Rule 4. Continually using the “Report” button just because you don’t like the post, or the poster, will take you down a slippery slope. The report button is there to report serious breaches of the rules, not because someone calls you an idiot or disagrees with you

Rule 5. Starting Threads/Posting

Over a number of years a happy medium has been struck between the board hosting an individual thread for every player, issue and question, or hosting a few megathreads where every post is lost in the traffic.

Thus the best (but not perfect) solution is to retain an annual and weekly thread structure for the board which covers the majority of posts and questions. From time to time, other issues will crop up which will warrant new threads.

Annual structure:
  • [Year] defenders
  • [Year] midfielders
  • [Year] rucks
  • [Year] forwards
  • [Year] rookies
  • [Year] Post your team year
  • [Year] player/s X versus player/s Y
  • [Year] injuries and suspensions
  • [Year] nailed it
  • [Year] regrets/vent thread
Weekly structure:
  • [Round] trades
  • [Round] teams
  • [Round] discussion
  • [Round] post your scores
  • [Round] captain / vice-captain
5a. We appreciate that each person has topics which they feel strongly about, but posting thread after thread on the same topic, especially where the content tends to overlap with an existing thread, is strongly discouraged. Rather, we would prefer the bumping of old threads so long as the bump has become relevant again or may be of interest to readers. If the moderators believe that a thread you created is similar to another, it will be merged. It’s a pain having too many active threads on the main page.

5b. You are allowed to include a news article in your thread or post, but rather than simply posting a link, try to quote the most relevant paragraph or two from the article so people understand what you’re highlighting. A link to a 6 page document with no reference is annoying.

5c. Use the search function - multiple threads on the same topic clog up the board and push other threads off the front page, so have a look before hitting "Submit Thread" that someone hasn't already thought of your bright idea before you. The search forum tool is at the top right hand of the forum.

5d. Don't create threads asking people to join your league in the main board. Each year there will be an "Unofficial Member Organised Leagues" thread located on this board. Post your requests there.

Rule 6. Moderators / Infractions

6a. The moderators of this forum are always right and there will be zero tolerance of criticism levelled at moderators.

6b. The SuperCoach Board does not exist is to provide a forum for anyone to air their grievances about Moderators or infractions they have received (on this board or any other). If you feel you have been hard done by the correct procedure is to take up your case with admin via the contact page: http://www.bigfooty.com/forum/sendmessage.php

6c. Posting images on SRP is a good way to strengthen your case, or to generate debate. However, there are limits to everything. As you can imagine, the moderators will automatically apply appropriate infractions against posters who display pornographic, obscene, or offensive images. Pictures of naked women, or scantily clad women, are expressly banned as our advertisers have policies against them. At the end of the day, they are what keeps BigFooty fundamentally a free service.

6d. Examples of automatic infractions are: images of Downs syndrome or other obviously intellectually handicapped persons (usually as a form of insult to a fellow poster); pictures of other big footy users; pictures of decapitated bodies/war zones, pictures of drug use or associated implements, animals fornicating, defecating, urinating etc.; images of personal vibrators, dildos, sex dolls etc....

6e. We can't list all of the things that are inappropriate, so we say be tasteful. If it's something you would be comfortable showing your grandmother - then it's probably OK.

6f. Moderators do what they do voluntarily. Even though you may not see the majority of what goes on, largely the reason we all live in peace is because we keep the ugly stuff off the board. If a moderator makes a request, or a ruling, please have enough respect to adhere to that. Otherwise, refer to Rule 6b.

Rule 7. Race / Sexual Preference

7a. Racist remarks are offensive and will not be tolerated in any way. Remember that some slang terms that were once commonplace are no longer acceptable in our more enlightened society, so choose your words carefully. Words such as "wog" or other such words amount to racial vilification and will not be tolerated.

7b. Questioning someone's sexual preferences or suggesting they perform sexual acts with or without someone else will run the gauntlet of good taste. So again choose your comments wisely as what may not be offensive to you may be for someone else. A person's Gender Identity is also not to be attacked or questioned on this board. Please respect every person as an individual poster.

Rule 8. Application of Rules

8a. Applying these rules is an inexact science and we as moderators will consider context, the history of a poster and the nature of the thread among other things when determining whether the undefinable line has been crossed. We may also just be in a bad mood.

8b. Long sequences of off topic bickering between posters can be boring for others to read and will be likely deleted with an infraction attached.

8c. It is impossible for us to read every post in every thread so some posts may slip through unnoticed. If you are offended by a post and believe action should be taken, report the post as this will ensure it is brought to our attention and we can act on it as necessary. If you do report a post don't then respond to it as well as it creates even more work for us and will darken our mood. Responding will most likely see both yourself, and the instigator, infracted



8d. Above all else we are all here to have fun and enjoy some good natured banter with other passionate members.

Rule 9. External websites

All threads solely dedicated to external fantasy football sites are banned. A link to a resource list is in the next post. If you wish to have a site included on the list, please alert the moderators who will evaluate it before its addition.

Posts within other threads can still refer to information from an external site however this must be done by posting the entire article/page on BigFooty followed by a link to the original. Links to external sites in signatures are allowed.

This board is for discussion. If you would like your website to gain exposure, place a link in your signature and join in discussion with valuable and insightful information, ideas and opinions. You will become recognised and trusted and people will eventually spend their valuable time finding their way to your website. Direct advertising is not permitted. If you would like to advertise on BigFooty, direct your enquiries to the Customer Service board or PM Chief directly.

This is fair, and more than we allow on other parts of the site.

Rule 10. Supercoach Draft and Cash Leagues

There's no need to start new threads all over the board advertising that you need to fill your league. If everyone did that, we'd be lost in a jungle. You are more than welcome to post advertisements for your various league in the appropriate thread on this board.

Rule 11. Trolling

An internet 'troll' is an abusive or obnoxious user who uses shock value to promote arguments and disharmony in online communities. Named after the wicked troll creatures of children's tales, an internet troll is someone who stirs up drama and abuses their online anonymity by purposely sowing hatred, bigotry, racism, mysogyny, or just simple bickering between others. Trolls like a big audience, so they frequent blog sites, news sites, discussion forums, and game chat. Trolls thrive in any environment where they are allowed to make public comments.

If someone has a different opinion to yours, and argues against that opinion, that does not mean they are "trolling". Posters often have differing opinions. Just because other posts don't think a player is as good as you do, that does not constitute "trolling".

If a moderator considers that a post you have made has been done so in order to get under another persons skin, it will most likely be removed.

Rule 12. Essendon Drug Saga (and other such club transgressions)

We've all discussed this to our hearts content. This is the SuperCoach Board. The drugs saga has nothing to do with SuperCoach. Please refrain from referring to the saga, making snide remarks or taking pot shots at the Essendon Football Club.

It is important as a community that we are all inclusive and encourage supporters of all clubs to visit here regularly. Essendon supporters shouldn't have to come to the SC Board and put up with insults any more than Carlton supporters should over salary cap rorting.

If you wish to have your say on the Essendon Drug Scandal, there are other areas in BigFooty dedicated to discussing that topic.

This rule covers any and all club and player transgressions, sagas and periods of turmoil - for much the same reason as the Essendon Drug Saga example. The SuperCoach board does not exist for discussing such incidents, nor does it exist for baiting people based on the club that they support.

Warnings will be issued on initial transgressions and infractions handed out for repeat offences.

Rule 13. Hindsight Heroes

SuperCoach, fundamentally, is like Tattslotto. Despite all the historical statistics that go in to making predictions, thoughts are just that; predictions. Many posters here will make dozens of them a week; some will no doubt end up being correct, some will end up being incorrect.

Hindsight heroes are not welcome on this board, full stop.

There's nothing more frustrating than spending hours on here giving your thoughts and insights on SuperCoach players only to have some random come along and say "I told you so" when you inevitably get one wrong. This type of behaviour discourages people from posting their thoughts in the first place, and in reality is just plain childish. Not only will you alienate yourself from the community, you'll find yourself infracted.

**********

If you have any queries or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact the moderators.

Cheers,

Jiska, Sir Skid

Thanks to manboob, The_Steadier and krk004 for their contributions to parts of this.

SuperCoach Workings:
You can trade and substitute players, name your Captain/Vice Captain and change Emergency selections right through each round, up until the time of the start of their team's actual match. Players are locked into your team only at the time that their real match has started.

Trades can be reversed right up until the start of the FIRST match of each round. Once the round and Rolling Lockout is under way, you can no longer reverse any trades.

Where there are 2 emergencies are selected in one position and only one of these is required, the lowest scoring emergency will be used.

Players who are named and score a 0 will not be replaced by an emergency.

During the byes you'll score from your best 18 players only in any position, from your selected, on-field Starting 22.

Dual Position Player Substitutions - If you have 2 or more players selected in different positions, who were both available for selection in multiple, matching positions (e.g. you have a Defender who is listed as a Defender and Forward, and a Forward who is listed as a Defender and Forward), you're able to switch them around with a simple Substitution. A trade is not required.


How Points Are Scored

Effective kick = 4 Points
Ineffective kick = 0 Points
Clanger kick = -4 Points

Goal = 8 Points
Behind = 1 Point
Mark uncontested (maintaining possession) = 2 Points
Mark contested (maintaining possession) = 6 Points
Mark uncontested (from opposition) = 4 Points
Mark contested (from opposition) = 8 Points
Tackles = 4 Points
Free kick for = 4 Points
Free kick against = -4 Points
Hitout to Advantage = 5 Points
Gather from Hitout = 2 Points

More specifically:
MARK
from teammate, uncontested: 1

Captains Scoring:
If Player A scores 100 points as your captain, and Player B scores 150, you missed 50 points by not making player B your captain. Most people mistakenly double the differential of 50 points, however this is not correct.

As an example:

Player A + Player A + Player B
100 + 100 + 150 = 350

Player A + Player B + Player B
100 + 150 + 150 = 400

Difference
400 - 350 = 50 (ie. The difference between the two players original scores)

Playing against top/bottom teams

This is somewhat opinion based, but I feel it's worth putting in here. Statistics show that some of the Super Premo players actually score better against the better teams and worse against the bottom teams. This isn't always the case, but Buddy, Pendles and GAJ have all shown this to be true (albeit with a few exceptions). Perhaps they prepare better mentally against the stronger opponents and want to do better, who knows. The key here, though, is not that good players do well or badly against the better of weaker teams, but that realistically it makes little difference where the opposition team is ranked on the ladder or how good they are and has more to do with their individual match day opponent.

Let's look at GAJ (the best SC player every year for as long as I can recall):
Lowest score for the entire year in 2013 was against Melbourne (17th) - Scored 67
Second lowest score was against St Kilda (16th) - Scored 90
Highest score for the entire year in 2013 was against Collingwood (6th)
Scored 149 against Hawthorn, eventual Premiers.

Average against top 8 sides, 132
Average against bottom 10 sides, 126

In the Melbourne game referred to in the example above, GAJ has tagged very hard by McKenzie. There was a lot of press after the game about "illegal tactics" employed by him against GAJ. On the flip side, Collingwood decided not to tag GAJ at all and to let him run free. From memory he scored a record 51 disposals for the game.

Captain Loopholes

This strategy basically gives you two chances to get your captain right. In this example, Fremantle plays GWS on Friday night, while Adelaide plays Geelong on Saturday afternoon. I give my VC option to Nat Fyfe, given he plays on the Friday night while putting the C on Sloane as my "backup" Captain.

If Fyfe scores an 80, I leave the C on Sloane. Read doesn't play in R2 and so Mumford's score takes affect. I could also just make the switch and put Mumford on for Read so my gameday predictions are more accurate, but either way will be fine.

If Fyfe scores a 160, I clearly want to keep that score, so I would put the C on to Read in R2 as I know he isn't going to play. Mumford, as Emergency covers Read's 0 and because Read didn't play as Captain, my VC gets double points (Fyfe).

Key notes with this strategy:
  1. The most important thing to remember is that you MUST have a non-playing player who's game is played AFTER your VC plays but BEFORE your C plays. This is critical. There have been numerous examples of where someone has put the VC on a player, who scores big and then realises they have no way to get their score.
  2. Make sure your non-playing player isn't named an emergency and therefore a chance of being a late inclusion.
  3. A lot of players will pick one player at the start of the year that has no chance of playing to specifically use as the loophole player. If you choose to do this, try and make that player a member of a team that plays late in the round (ie. Sat night or Sunday). My personal advice is to have this player as your R3, purely because you're better choosing rookies on other lines that will generate cash. This year, I used Read as my "will never play" player to enable the loophole and also a DPP swing for my rucks.

Trading with Dual Position Players (DPPs)

We all know that a MID/FWD in your forward line can interchange with a MID/FWD in your midfield (and ditto for all other combinations), but the beauty of DPPs is the ability to trade into other lines.

For example; You believe that Heeney has reached his maximum price range and you want to trade him out, but there are no other midfielders that interest you. However, your forward line has holes and you'd love to combine Heeney's value with the 200k in your bank and grab superstar Buddy Franklin. Luckily, you have Dane Swan (MID/FWD) in your forward line.

Here's how to do it:
  1. Click the T (trade) button on Heeney
  2. Scroll down your team list on the left and click the S (Substitute button) next to Swan
  3. Magically your selection list on the right changes to forwards instead of midfielders
  4. Select Buddy and complete the trade
  5. Heeney will now be gone, replaced by Swan in your midfield and Buddy will be up forward in Swan's spot
2.jpg

3.jpg

4.jpg

5.jpg


You can also do multiple DPP swaps in the same trade. For example; you could now trade Buddy out, use the S button to move Swan forward, then hit the S button to move Newnes into the midfield and grab Heath Shaw down back.

Using the emergency loophole

Given the fluctuations in rookie scores from week to week, this is a pretty straight forward technique used by many to get the best rookie score, particularly early in the season.

It works in much the same way that the C/VC loophole works and requires you to have a non-playing player in your team, on the line in which you want to loophole, in order to take advantage of this. Normally not many people "plan" to do this, as it is always best to have as many players in your team playing from week to week rather than having a non-playing player on each line.

In the example below, let's assume that Adelaide is playing Essendon on Friday night. I'm not confident about Van Berlo's ability to pump out a good score, especially after last weeks 45, so I plonk him on the bench and give him the Emergency vest.

If he comes out and scores another 45, things stay as they are. However, if he comes out a scores an 95, I simply move Lambert (injured and not playing this week) on to the ground for Miller (as an example). As a result, because Lambert isn't playing, I'll receive the emergency score from Van Berlo (95).

Key notes with this strategy:
  1. The most important thing to remember is that you MUST have a non-playing player who's game is played AFTER the rookie you wish to loophole plays. This is critical.
  2. Make sure your non-playing player isn't named an emergency and therefore a chance of being a late inclusion.

All games in which Champion Data Ranking points are applied are capped at 3300 points.So while quantity based scoring systems are easier to follow - as scores can be calculated live by eye - the rankings are not, with scores fluctuating at the end of each quarter and all scores being re-scaled at the completion of the game.

The reason a cap has been put on the rankings is to ensure all games are quantified the same way,whether the game is played in wet or on a dry day,on a big ground or a small ground.All games of football have one common goal, outscore the opposition.The rankings system recognises this and values all games of football the same,which allows us,from a statistical analysis point of view,to easily compare individual performances from games across various seasons as well as across different competitions.

For example, in 2002 there was an average of 587 disposals per game, but in 2012 this increased to 714 per game, meaning each player averaged close to 3 more disposals per game than 2002.With the rankings capped at 3300,we are able to compare a Nathan "FigJam" Buckley game from 2002, with a Gary Ablett Jnr game from 2012, without the increase in disposals clouding the comparison.

It also allows data to be compared across all competitions, so even though the NAB AFL under-age Championships games are 20 minutes shorter per game on average than AFL games, and the games average just 575 disposals, players are judged the same way as their AFL peers with a maximum of 3300 ranking points up for grabs.

CASE STUDY: SCOTT PENDLEBURY, RD 10 vs GOLD COAST

Although there are 3300 ranking points assigned to every game, scores are re-scaled at the end of each match to take into account when the game was at its closest. In blow outs in which 1 team leads the entire game,the rankings assigned in the opening quarter of the match will be scaled up at the completion of the match - as that is effictively when the game was won.

A good example of this was a few years ago when Pendlebury was subbed out at half time with a knee injury against GC. In the first half he finished with 17 disposals, 5 clearances, 2 tackles, 1 goal and 1 score assist, sitting on 76 ranking points at half time.He took no further part in the game after the main break but finished the match with 94 ranking points.So how did he earn 18 more ranking points despite not playing a minute?

At half time of every match there are 1650 points (half of 3300) allocated to all players, as there is no proof to suggest that the second half will have more or less value than the first.In this game the Magpies lead by 20 points at the 6 and a half minute mark of the second quarter, but kicked 4 off the final 5 goals of the half to lead by 45 points at half time.The Magpies were never challenged in the second half, eventually winning the game by 97 points,proving the closest and most important part of the game was in the first quarter.At half time, Pendleburys 76 points was equal to 4.6% of the 1650 points allocated, but once the game was over the first half was rescaled to reflect the blow out, meaning instead of a 50/50 split between first and second half ranking points, there was actually a 61/39 split,with 2010 of the possible 3300 ranking points allocated in the first half.Because Pendles did all of his work when the game was close - effectively not winning any stats in junk time - his game was revalued post-match by 0.1% meaning he was given 4.7% of the available points in the first half, which was 94 of the 2010 points.

Given the recent events, please do not forget Rule 12 of this board.

GOAUS! Doss Ant_ Seppo Starburns_

Rule 12. Essendon Drug Saga (and other such club transgressions)

We've all discussed this to our hearts content. This is the SuperCoach Board. The drugs saga has nothing to do with SuperCoach. Please refrain from referring to the saga, making snide remarks or taking pot shots at the Essendon Football Club.

It is important as a community that we are all inclusive and encourage supporters of all clubs to visit here regularly. Essendon supporters shouldn't have to come to the SC Board and put up with insults any more than Carlton supporters should over salary cap rorting.

If you wish to have your say on the Essendon Drug Scandal, there are other areas in BigFooty dedicated to discussing that topic.

This rule covers any and all club and player transgressions, sagas and periods of turmoil - for much the same reason as the Essendon Drug Saga example. The SuperCoach board does not exist for discussing such incidents, nor does it exist for baiting people based on the club that they support.

Warnings will be issued on initial transgressions and infractions handed out for repeat offences.

SuperCoach Scoring - 2016

GOALS
It is no great surprise that the main avenue to SuperCoach scoring is through kicking a goal.

Those coaches wanting to select West Coast’s Josh Kennedy would have a smile to their face — each time your player boots one through the big sticks that will earn you a whopping eight points.

They don’t have to kick the goal themselves to score. If your player is the last to assist in a score — by kicking, handballing or knocking the ball to a teammate who kicks a goal, for example — that will earn you an impressive 3.5 points. Tom Lynch from Adelaide ranked No. 1 in this area last season.

Goal: 8 points
Behind: 1 point
Score Assist: 3.5 points


CONTESTED FOOTY
Winning a contested possession has always been highly rewarding, but there are multiple ways in which you can win a contested possession.

Winning it at ground level will earn you 4.5 points, however, winning a contested possession in the air is far more rewarding. A contested mark is worth six points, and an intercept contested mark is like gold, earning you eight points — the equal-most along with a goal.

If you’re thinking of selecting Easton Wood, this will make you happy. Wood took 33 contested marks from opposition kicks last season — six more than any other player.

Intercept contested mark: 8 points
Contested mark: 6 points
Contested possession at ground level: 4.5 points
Intercept possession: 4.5 points


UNCONTESTED FOOTY
Yes, your player receives greater reward for winning the ball in a contested situation, but players also get points for winning the ball on the outside. All uncontested marks will generate two points, and for those thinking of selecting Nick Riewoldt, you earn five points for every mark taken on a lead. For those coaches out there wanting to select Andrew Gaff, you will earn 1.5 points for handball receive.

Mark on a lead: 5 points
Uncontested mark: 2 points
Handball received: 1.5 points
Gather: 1.5 points


RUCK CONTESTS
Only recently has the scoring system changed for hitouts, but it was a change that needed to happen. Previously, all hitouts were earning your player points, now only hitouts that go to a teammate will see your ruckman rewarded, generating five points per hitout to advantage.

This is where Nic Naitanui, Aaron Sandilands, Max Gawn and Todd Goldstein come into their own. A hitout directly to the opposition will lose you one point.

Hitout to advantage: 5 points
Hitout: 0 points
Hitout sharked: -1 point


FREE KICKS
Discipline is crucial in SuperCoach. Coaches of Joel Selwood will be happy, with a free kick netting you four points. Those thinking of picking Joe Daniher should think again, a free against will lose you four points, and worse of all, a 50m penalty against will lose you 8.5 points — the biggest negative in any statistic.

Free kick: 4 points
Free against: -4 points
50m penalty against: -8.5 points


HITTING TARGETS
Ball use is another key element involved in the SuperCoach scoring system. An effective kick is far more beneficial than an effective handball, generating four points compared to just 1.5 points. Heath Shaw ranked No. 1 in this area last season, averaging 15 effective kicks per game.

However, if your player turns the ball over it is going to hurt, losing four points for every clanger disposal. Dustin Martin owners wouldn’t be liking this after the Tigers midfielder averaged the most clanger kicks in the competition last season. All ineffective disposals are worth nothing.

Effective kick: 4 points
Effective handball: 1.5 points
Ineffective disposal: 0 points
Clanger disposal: -4 points


ONE-PERCENTERS
Defensive work also doesn’t go unnoticed. Matt Priddis has been a SuperCoach star for years and it isn’t hard to see why. All effective tackles will earn you four points — Priddis ranked No. 1 in this area for 2015. Shepherds will generate 1.5 points. Lock-down defenders usually don’t get a lot of the ball so they need a lot of spoils to put up a decent score — they are worth just two points.

Tackle: 4 points
Spoil: 2 points
Shepherd: 1.5 points

Want to play your rivals EVERY WEEK!

WELL YOU CAN!!!!

First, in the drop down menu on the left of screen, click on leagues.
Then click on "Rivalries" - you should then see this screen.

Simply add the team name of your rival in the "find a team" section.
Then after you find the right team, click on the green plus at the end of their name.
They will then be added to your rivals list!

To get this to work, they must also link you as a rival.
Please click CONFIRM on all rivalries!

Find this on the right hand side of the screen, towards the bottom.
