    Spudcoach

    The object of the game is to make the worst possible Supercoach team in order to score the fewest points at the end of the season.

    Your score at the end of the season will be the total of all your players average supercoach points, plus any penalties. Once you submit your team you cannot make any changes during the season. Teams are submitted in this thread with a screenshot before the first game of the year.

    How to play

    1. Choose a team
    * Log on to supercoach and make a team of 22 players. Do not select any substitutes. (refer to the example team below)
    * The team you make must be within $100 000 of the $10 million supercoach salary cap. If you have more than $100 000 remaining your team will not be accepted.
    * No trades or subs allowed.
    * You can change your team before the season starts if you need to,
    * No team changes allowed after the first bounce of the season.


    2. Choose a captain
    * Select a captain from your team who is worth more than $500 000.
    * Captains are worth double points.

    3. Post a screenshot (don't forget the #Spudcoach17Team )
    * Once you have selected 22 players on the field, your captain, and have the right salary cap remaining, post a screenshot in his thread including:
    - Name of your captain.
    - Your user name.
    - The #Spudcoach17Team hashtag.
    (You can then go back and re-enter your proper SuperCoach team)


    Scoring

    Player's Total SuperCoach Points / Number of Games Played = Player's SpudCoach Points (x2 for your Captain)

    If Games Played = 0, then Player's SpudCoach Points = 200

    Team Score = Total SpudCoach Points for all Players

    * At the end of the season, the average SuperCoach points for each of your players are totalled.
    * If any player you selected fails to play a game, you get +200 points for that player.
    * The winner will be the person with the lowest score (total of all player averages + double for the captain + any penalties for players who did not play).

    Please submit your team by posting the screenshot of your team with the hashtag #Spudcoach17Team and nominate your captain.

    (Your bigfooty username) Captain: Pendlebury

    At the end of the season the winner will receive a special profile badge: [​IMG] (Thanks Chief)


    FAQ

    Q. I play supercoach already. Do I need two supercoach accounts to enter a spudcoach team?

    A: No. Just enter your spudcoach team following the above instructions then you can remove those players and enter your real supercoach team.

    Q. Can I pick injured players?

    A. Yes, but if they are injured all season and don't play a game, then they get +200 points for your team.

    Q. But if they are injured and miss some games, won't their total score be low?

    A. Not necessarily because their spudcoach score is based on the player's supercoach average at the end of the season, not their total score. So if they play one game all year and score 100 points, that is the same spudcoach score as a player who averaged 100 points over all 22 games.

    :'(

    If you want to play, just make a team of awful players in supercoach that is close to the salary cap, choose a captain worth $500 000 or more, screenshot it and add it to this thread. Your score will be added up by me at the end of the year based on all of your players supercoach averages (+200 points if they score zero). Lowest score wins.

    Is this really confusing? Someone who is not embarrassingly bad at explaining things halp!


    Fixed. Win prizes tag pls? :$:oops:

    We'll see. If we put that tag on this thread, people will expect a badge or some shit.

    They won't play and you'll get penalised.

    Yes, but if they don't play a game then they get an automatic 200 points. So it is risky. The score is based on their average at the end of the season, so if you choose nicnat and he plays one game at the end of the year and scored 150 points in that game, then his average is 150 points for the season. So I don't think you really get any advantage from choosing injured players.

    But allthey need to do is play 1 game at least to get an average? Ie. I pick NicNat as my skipper who plays 1 game at the end of the year or something?

    You can if you want. If he doesn't play then he will give you 400 points: 200 for zero games x 2 for being the captain. Because it is the player's average points at the end of the season that matters, it doesn't really matter if a player plays all 22 games or just 1.

    okay, I updated the OP to make the rules easier (no subs like Allikat suggested) and fixed the wording so it hopefully easier to read. Hopefully that is not even more confusing now :oops:
