The Facts:

Gary Ablett polled 30 votes almost polling more votes than the whole of the Melbourne Team.

Last Year every time Dane Swan had more than 28 touches he polled at least one vote, obviously not doing that this year as he had more than 28 touches 17 times and only polled 12 votes.

Matthew Richardson played just 6 games this year and managed 6 votes. Amazingly winning the most votes for a Richmond player.

Chris Judd has polled 15 votes or more for 6 years in a row.

Scott Pendlebury was great odds to win the Pies most vote getter polling 13 votes and beating Dane Swan, Alan Didak and Leon Davis.

Champion Data tipped Brisbane’s top 3 vote getter’s to be: 1st Drummond 2nd Mitch Clark 3rd Luke Power. Amazingly Simon Black and Jonathan Brown were not in the Top 3. They finished equal 4th with 19 votes.

Amazingly Champion Data got Kade Simpson to be Carlton’s top vote getter and he finished 5th behind Judd, Murphy, Gibbs and Fevola.

In Round 6 when Hawthorn played Carlton, Brendan Fevola scored 8 goals and still couldn’t manage a vote.

The Super Coach All-Australian Team 2009

Posted by Josh on September 17, 2009

This is the team you have all been vying to see. The real deal, THE SUPERCOACH ALL-AUSTRALIAN TEAM. A team of superstars, a team of the best the very best. Supercoach has the most realistic scoring out of all the fantasy games and awards points not just for a kick but for its effectiveness. This team has been put together with all the best players in there positions. Obviously no player can be named in 2 positions. Here’s the team you have been waiting for:

DEFENDERS: Brendon GODDARD, Corey ENRIGHT, Chris NEWMAN, Tarkyn LOCKYER, Shannon HURN, Paul DUFFIELD and Scott MCMAHON.

Goddard was an obvious selection, he scored 300 more than the next best. Enright. Goddard just had a fantastic year, playing in a great team. Why he didn’t get in the Back 6 of the real deal All-Australian Team. Goddard averaged a huge 116 points a game and still managed to drop 3,000 during the H&A season. Enright averaged 98 during the season and has carried his side into September. Enright has played every game in 09′ and could be a good premium buy in 2010. Tarkyn Lockyer. Well what can I say. Dropped to a very low price and could be THE buy of next year. Providing no injury. The other 4 thoroughly deserved their spot in the SC All-Australian Team and should all be vying for a spot next year.

MIDFIELD: Dane SWAN, Gary ABLETT, Leigh MONTAGNA, Adam GOODES, Marc MURPHY and  Chris JUDD.

Swan and Ablett. Both dreaming about the 2009 Brownlow and yet again get named in a very special team. Swan averaged 123 which sounds big but Lil’ Gazza managed to average *drumroll* 140. After a great start out of the blocks Gazza seemed to slow towards the end of the season. Not Much. But a bit. Ablett played just 19 games and still managed to be the 2nd highest scorer in the AFL. Gazza deserves the Brownlow but it may be taken off him by Swanny. Ablett’s 3 games out MAY cost him. Montagna jumped almost 100,000 during the season and Murphy was a big surprise to be named in the SC All-Australian. Selwood and Dal Santo were unlucky to be left out of the side but that’s just the way things are sometimes.

RUCKS: Mitch CLARK and Darren JOLLY

To different rucks to last year deserved their spot in the team. It was close as the top 5 rucks for the year were separated by just 55 points and Big Sandilands was only just nudged out by Jolly. In Fact overtaken in the last round by Jolly and Clark and then almost McIntosh. Clark rose 210,000 and averaged 93 in the season 1 more than Jolly who averaged 92. Sandilands averaged 101 but missed 2 games leaving him just short of the final 22. Sandilands got what he deserved by being named All-Australian the other night. All though I thought Mitch Clark could have found his spot on the bench.

FORWARDS: Ryan O’KEEFE, Nick RIEWOLDT, Brett DELEDIO, Leon DAVIS, Jonathan BROWN, Aaron DAVEY and Brendan FEVOLA.

Mitch Clark could have been named in the forward line but decided to put him in the ruck and let Fev take the final spot. O’Keefe dropped 65,000 in 09′ and still averaged 109. O’Keefe could be a good buy next year as his price will rise near the start of the season. Riewoldt and Deledio both had outstanding years and lived up to the reputation they were set at the start of the year. They averaged 113 and 103 respectively with Riewoldt missing one match due to injury. Davis was claimed to be over priced at the start of the year but managed to live up to his price. Davis averaged 111 and was outstanding when Collingwood needed him most. Davey had an amazing start to 09′ and then tailed away a bit. Melbourne’ go to man down back played a good role playing off half back for the young Dee’s. Fev had an outstanding year booting 86 goals but SuperCoach does not exactly favour his game style. Fev had a fantastic season and deserved his spot at Full-Forward in the All-Australian Team. Fev averaged 93 and jumped over the 500,000 mark on price.

R: Aaron Sandilands (Fremantle), Chris Judd (Carlton – vice-captain), Gary Ablett (Geelong)

I/C: Matthew Boyd (Western Bulldogs), Nick Dal Santo (St Kilda), Brendon Goddard (St Kilda), Adam Goodes (Sydney Swans)

 

Team by Team

Adelaide: 1

Brisbane: 1

Carlton: 2

Collingwood: 3

Fremantle: 1

Geelong: 5

St.Kilda: 5

Sydney: 2

Western Bulldogs: 2

 

A Few Stats

Saints  captain Nick Riewoldt was named with the (C) and Chris Judd (VC). It is the fifth time Cat defender Matthew Scarlett and Crow midfielder Simon Goodwin have been given the honours with both players being selected in the back half. The most talked about position was the full-back position which was taken by Matthew Scarlett and Brian Lake was named in the back pocket. The surprise was that Leon Davis was named in the side and West Coast forward Mark LeCras missed out after his outstanding year. Paul Chapman was surprisingly named at half-forward and Brendon Goddard was named on the BENCH for his first selection in the team. Nick Dal Santo, Matthew Boyd and Adam Goodes round up the bench. Dane Swan was named at half-forward as expected and Brendan Fevola was worthily selected at full-forward after winning the Coleman Medal. Simon Prestigiacomo, Mitch Clark and Sam Gilbert were unlucky not to be selected. Lance Franklin surely could have been selected in the forward pocket?

Collingwood V Adelaide

Posted by Josh on September 12, 2009

 

COLLINGWOOD

 

 

ADELAIDE
B: Graham Johncock, Ben Rutten, Andy Otten
HB: Brent Reilly, Scott Stevens, Michael Doughty
C: Andrew McLeod, Scott Thompson, David Mackay
HF: Chris Knights, Trent Hentschel, Bernie Vince
F: Jason Porplyzia, Kurt Tippett, Brett Burton
Foll: Ivan Maric, Tyson Edwards, Simon Goodwin
Int: Robert Shirley, Brad Symes, James Sellar, Patrick Dangerfield, ,
Emg: Phil Davis, Richard Douglas, Rory Sloane

In: Robert Shirley
Out: Richard Douglas (omitted)

 

FORM GUIDE (past five matches):
WWWLL (Collingwood); LWWWW (Adelaide Crows)

MATCH ODDS:
Collingwood $2.25, Adelaide $1.65 (TAB Sportsbet)

PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Dane SWAN

Swan has had a fantastic year and is one of the favourites for the 2009 Brownlow Medal. Swan has dropped of his best in the past few weeks but has still been up with the best players on the ground. Swan statistics this year show he has been working hard for the ball. Swan has averaged 31.8 disposals a game in 09′, 7.8 marks, 3.0 tackles and 5.4 inside 50’s. He was ranked 1 in the competition for disposals in 2009.

Bernie VINCE

Vince has been in outstanding form in Adelaide’s ;ast few weeks when they have demolished Carlton and Essendon. Vince has been in career best form and is expected to perform to high levels in this game and in finals to come. Vince who is still 23 has already established himself as one of Adelaide’s best players. Vince was taken 32 in the 2005 draft and has improved ever since. Vince has averaged: 27.2 disposals, 6.0 marks, 2.8 tackles and 97.8 SuperCoach points. He had 34 disposals and 3 goals against Carlton in Round 22.

Previous Games

Round 1, 2009
Adelaide – 13.12 (90)
Collingwood – 13.8 (86)

Round 19, 2009
Adelaide – 9.14 (68)
Collingwood – 13.11 (89)

WHO WILL WIN:

Collingwood have the psychological advantage being at home but Adelaide are in red hot form kicking more than 25 goals in both of the past few weeks. I think Adelaide will be to good for the Pies but I will give both teams a great chance to win the game. If Collingwood were to win: Swan, Davis, Didak and Jack Anthony would all have to fire and if Adelaide were to win: Vince, Tippett, Knights and Goodwin would all have to bring there best games down to Melbourne. Prestigiacomo will be the most likely person to play on Tippett and Swan would probably play on Vince. You would think Rutten would play on Anthony and Shirley will probably get Alan Didak. This Game should be decided by less than 20 points and I would think both teams will form a zone to stop the other team with ther deadly attacks. Expect a low scoring game with heaps of excitement.

THE WINNER:

Adelaide by 10 points.
