I know it's only $20 but thought I'd ask around before I decide to splash. Is there anything it can offer me that other sides can't, apart from the live scores?

From what I remember from last year it gives you breakeven and predicted cash rises. That part of it can be quite handy.

You're not serious about SC if you don't have Gold.

I can go to the butchers, the green grocers, the deli, the bakery and the fish shop to buy my weekly supplies. My time, however, is important. I'd rather go to Coles.

SC Gold doesn't get you live scores.

You don't want live scores. You spend every two minutes refreshing the page instead of watching the footy. Quarter time scores are fine.
I disagree, live scores make it easier for me to know whether I should be happy or angry.

I feel guilty yelling at players only to find out they didnt spud it up quite as much as I thought.

I like the live scores (which I get as part of my paper delivery), but I often find myself missing half the game.

No. I only use it because my teacher yearly subscription includes it.

All my research is done here and from SC Paige :)

It's probably worth it for breakevens and stuff too. I used the breakevens Paige put up, and it was a real pain having that open in one window and scrolling through the whole competition just to find your players

Have people not heard of too serious? Started by someone on here and their 'stats' page has breakevens, predicted price rises, salary calculators, scoring history - the works (and it's free)

Stats usually go up about 24 hrs after the last game.

Not always that accurate, but close enough to gauge an idea.

You can get what SC Gold gives you for free if you're willing to go to multiple sites to find the info. SC Gold just gives it all to you in one place, and also pretty lights at selection time. At the end of the day, SC Gold costs you 86c a week during the Home and Away season, or 38c a week if averaged over the year. As I said earlier:

You're a good salesman Jiska :) It turns out I already have SC Gold in some form – by a roundabout method the site appears to have given it to me automatically through my FoxSports.com.au subscription which in turn came gratis from my Foxtel subscription.

So I can access all the SC Gold goodies on the team/trading pages etc, but not the live scores because I'm not subscribed to the Herald Sun... strange.

Rest assured I won't pay $20 just for live scores, they're pretty pointless anyway given scaling and the like.

Live scores are not available to SC Gold subscribers, they are only available to those that have a NEWS+ subscription (ie. those getting the HS delivered or with a digital pass). $240 a year is the cheapest you'll get that for, and it's certainly not worth paying that for live scores.

$240? You're getting ripped off. I'm
paying $16per month *$192 for my NEWS+ digital subscription.
