    Hi guys. I am 40 yrs old and live in south west Victoria. Married no kids. Work in the hardware retail. Been playing dt and sc for I think 3 yrs. luv the sc so all my focus goes there while dt is token effort. I love analysing, theorising and just generally trying to solve the sc riddle. Have a couple of good mates who are hooked so it makes the league fun. Also I meet with a work colleague to discuss sc over lunch for pretty much four out of five week days from late October through to September. My wife jokes that I have a longer season than the actual players.
    Last year was my first serious assault on the supercoach prize. I still managed to let approx forty thousand teams rank higher than me. I think I proved that it doesn't pay to be over adventurous in your starting team. My focus may have been to heavily on the league win and while i did win two out of my three leagues my side was not finished.
    I am starting to believe that there are no rules for picking the right supercoach side. For if "there is an exception then there is no rule". I found a few exceptions last year. I think it is about fitting as much value in your side while not giving away to many points. It's like having your cake and eating it!
    Anyways just wanted to let you guys know I thoroughly enjoy your input and discussion. Hats off to you jay and the likes of the dedicated rowsus. The supercoach scores site while being one of many on my favourites list is no 1 in my eyes.

    Hi guys!

    I'm a 17-year-old male about to start Year 12 in Melbourne's north-west. Like most people my age, I've been asked what I would like to do in the future. The immediate and well-practiced reply is, "I'm not sure yet." Currently looking into a career in law, although I'd be more than happy to sit on my backside and follow the sport all day. Being of an Indian heritage, the high expectations naturally follow but I'm confident I'll be able to cope (this year max, it gets a bit grinding when Ma constantly reminds you in her gentle Indian accent about the pitfalls of life.) Weirdly for an Indian, I suck at Maths but I'm good at English.

    My first memory of sport was when Herschelle Gibbs infamously 'dropped the World Cup' back in '99. Ever since then, I have been an obsessive cricket-lover, constantly absorbed in the game. As a result, I probably took my cricket a little too seriously when I was younger (used to cry when Australia lost lol) without actually getting anywhere (no reps side to boast of). As I've gotten older, I've learned to relax and just enjoy the game. Consequently, I've gotten a lot better in the last 2-3 years. I play u/17 Sunday Turf for my local club, batting at 4 or 5 and given a trundle with ball (medium pacers) most of the time. I've marked my fielding territory in the covers. I have a good pair of hands but I hate fielding in the slips because you have to stand still and you're so uninvolved in the action. Cricketing heroes include Warnie, Pidgeon, Punter, Huss, Sangakkara and Tendulkar. I really miss watching Warnie and Pidge bowl - absolute geniuses with metronomic consistency and a dash (being generous) of showmanship. I can't watch Australia vs India in the same room as Dad (Indian supporter). He once had me by the neck when I egged him on a little too much after he had a few. Fair to say, Ma makes sure we're separated when the Indians are touring.

    Also love my footy. I was born near Windy Hill and my first recollection of AFL was when Essendon won the flag in 2000. Been a die-hard Bomber ever since. Coincidentally, their new base in Tullamarine is about 5 mins from my house. Absolutely hate Collingwood, Carlton and Richmond. Comes with the territory doesn't it? I admit I admire the way the Pies go about business internally but their supporters (the ones whom I know) just irk me, especially when they win. My biggest regret so far is that I didn't force my parent to let me play footy when I was younger. They believed I would have ended up in a nursing home before my time. I reckon I would have played of the forward flank with the ability to push up into the midfield when needed (wishful thinking, I know). Favourite players include Hirdy - pure class, Dusty Fletcher - just keeps amazing me, Jobe - self-made player and inspirational, Pendles - oozes class, and Ablett - freak.

    Also love my tennis. I love watching Federer. His footwork and range of strokes is out of this world. Djokovic is always enjoyable to watch. Tomic certainly has a lot going for him. Lleyton - you know he's going to give it everything out there. Like my F1- GO RED BULL!

    Reading on the toilet is my favourite pastime. Favourite books include the Harry Potter series, Dan Brown books, 1984 by George Orwell and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee . Currently reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (for school). A lot of these previously mentioned books have been read on the loo lmao. I enjoy reading the Newspaper too. The Age is my choice. Favourite movies include the Batman series (Christopher Nolan), The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Ocean's series, Due Date and Up in the Air. I recommend that people watch Life of Pi. It's well written and makes you think. Favourite TV shows include Everybody Loves Raymond, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS, House, King of Queens, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Packed to the Rafters, Merlin, House Husbands and Revenge. Big Coldplay fan (Yellow, The Scientist and Fix You are my favourites), love my Daft Punk, Kasabian and Cinematic Orchestra. Recently been getting into classical as well - Moonlight Sonata No.14 (Beethoven) and the 6 Unaccompanied Cello Suites (specifically the Prelude) are such remarkable pieces of music.

    Started and got addicted to SuperCoach in 2011. Finished 300,000 after making some really bad selections and wasting my trades. Last year, I made a concerted effort to do well and did a lot of research (thank you TooSerious, SuperCoach Paige and SuperCoach Scores!). It paid off and I finished 5173, winning all but one league. Hoping for a similar result this year.

    In summary, I love my sport and SuperCoach. Good luck to everyone in 2013!
    Sorry about the bio lol.

    Welcome aboard, 30BucketsofRo. No need for the apology, great bio.
    Great book, To Kill A Mockingbird. I had to read it for school (in 1976!!!), and no one could convince me it wasn't Heck Tate that killed Bob Ewell. I came up with theory that Boo Radley just witnessed it. I even asked the teacher to show me exactly where in the book it was written that Boo Radley did it!
    Good luck for 2013, aim for top 2000 next year!
    We're goin' to need a bigger boat...

    Haha, I studied TKAM last year in term 4. We did quite a lot of work on it actually and it was part of learning the correct way to reference.

    Very interesting theory, Rowsus. Might have to delve into that one further.
    Thanks a lot, buddy.

    Welcome to the fold. Bring a slide rule to read some of the stuff here. Personally, I just toss a coin!

    G'day All.

    I'm a 27 year old male and live in Pascoe Vale South, about 10km North of Melbourne. I live there with my finance and my two border collies, Ted (male 3) and Barnie (female 2). I'm getting married at the end of April, and we picked this date (27th) as we could guarantee that the Dons wouldn't be playing as they would be on ANZAC day.

    I grew up in the North West of Melbourne, living in East Keilor and attending Essendon Grammar. While at school I mainly played hockey, and was in the school's first XI from year 9. I gave up cricket to focus on my hockey and also as it was a poor standard at school. During the early years I worked at a supermarket in Essendon, mainly in fruit and veg. This was good as I always had cash for getting drunk, when most my friends didn't - though it did mean funding a few nights out so I had someone to go with.

    After school I attended RMIT and attempted a Bachelor of Business in Accountancy - turns out that accounting is more law than anything - and having studied mainly maths and science at school I didn't particularly enjoy it. As such i dropped out and got a job at the NAB, where I currently still work. I have been working in Business Banking since 2007 and am looking to move in to the Retail stream as I'd like to get in to mortgage broking. In preparation for this move I've taken on some external study and passed my exam only this week, now just need to complete my project.

    Outside of work I play cricket (having taken it up again in 2005) and hockey, though have had have a rest this season due to a knee reco. I play cricket in the VTCA for PEGS Cricket Club, of which I'm also the treasurer (5 years and can't get rid of it!), but have just been scoring this year for the ones to stay involved. I am an opening bowler and genuine number 11. I have had a few seasons off for hockey since hurting my knee back in 2009, I have mainly played for PEGS HC, but I left in '09 to play for Brunswick in a higher level of competition. 8 games in I tore my ACL, but it would take another year before it was diagnosed and then another 2 before I had the reco. I'm hoping to get fit and manage at least the second half this season back at PEGS.

    I'm a big sports lover and follow a number of sports. Cricket was always my first love and I love to watch test cricket. I have followed the Bombers all my life but was never a huge attendee until about 4 years ago when I got an AFL membership, since then I've only missed a handful of games. I'm also a Melbourne Victory member, been with them for 6 years with a number of highs and lows. I also follow the Melbourne Storm, but more so on the TV, have been to a number of games. I enjoy watching Tennis as well, mainly the major tournaments, would love to see some Aussies do a bit better, but I usually follow Azarenka and Federer. I also follow a number of teams abroad, Man Untied in the EPL, Cincinatti Reds and New York Yankees in the MLB, McLaren in F1.

    Since my (kind of) brother in law sorted me out with a computer which is plugged in to my TV I've been in to a number of different shows, the main ones off the top of my head are: How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, Dexter, 30 Rock, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Archer, Bob's Burgers and there are more I'm sure!

    I've been a member of the SCS family from almost right at the beginning, and enjoyed writing up the previews for the league last season. This is a fantastic site and everyone communicates with respect and a willingness to help each other out. My own supercoach career has been ok, I've never set the world alight in the overall rankings, but have had some good success in different leagues - going back-to-back in my work league last year and netting a tidy profit. I'm hoping to get as far up the pile I can this year, and would also love to be right there at the end in the SCS Premier League.

    I think that is more than enough, and well done to anyone who got this far.

    Good luck for the year!!
    Jobe is a God!

    G'day lads, my names Jonny and i'm from Melbourne's South East.

    I'm 17, and doing year 12. Can't wait till round 15 when I can 'legally' hit the pub before the game.
    I love my hawks, been a fan since day 1. Some family member played for them.
    This is my 3rd Supercoach season and I know how to play the game now, so i can see were i'm at. Mates got me onto it and it's all we talk about, massive rivalry and high stakes.
    The only sport i'm good at is long distance running, it's fun and i'm a State Level runner.I play Footy for my local VAFA club, cricket (Bowl pies that somehow get wickets). On top of this I play Basketball with a group of mates from school, love it.
    Sport fanatic, my teams are: Afl: Hawks, EPL: Chelsea, NBA: Knicks, NFL: Giants, MLB: Oakland A's.
    Fav movies are Shawshank and Django
    Fav book is The Great Gatsby

    G'day all,

    Just wanted to quickly introduce myself before I start posting.

    My name is Matt. I live in Central Queensland and work as a Business Consultant.

    I've played Supercoach for many years now and appreciate that there are many other coaches out there who put in the hard yards in the pre-season research to achieve high results. I finished 862nd last year overall after a horror start. Prior seasons I have finished in the top 5,000 twice and I can't recall my rankings prior to that but they were no good.

    I have been watching and reading this forum closely particularly in the last 3 months and have been very impressed with the contributions and the community feel of this supercoach dedicated website. I've never been one to get involved in the forums before, mainly just because I haven't seen the give and take scenario like I have seen with this site - very impressive.

    I put in hours upon hours of research each week into my supercoach research. I want to get more involved in the fantasy community this season and I have no doubt that as I share my opinions with you, that I will also benefit greatly.

    Can't wait to get involved with you all and establish myself within the SCS community.

    See you around the forums.

    Cheers,

    Wise Goose
