Hello SuperCoaches! Congratulations on making it this far in the diploma. For this unit we’re going to be talking about guns and pods. Guns of course are the best players in SuperCoach. We’re talking about the Cameron Smiths, Paul Gallens Corey Parker even like though Corey has retired this year. So we need to make a replacement for him. And pods as the acronym would suggest, this point of difference players, they’re the low ownership guys who can give you the edge over your competition. Let’s first talk about guns and Cameron Smith is the obvious one. He’s probably the best SuperCoach player in the game right now. Since Corey Parker’s retired and Paul Gallen coming to the end of his career. The average 78.4 last year which was the highest of any player that means he starts with the highest price of any player in SuperCoach this season. He’s never actually averaged below 69 in the last five years. So when it comes to consistency, Cameron Smith is right at the top of the list. Speaking about consistency Jarrod Croker is just one of the most solid players going around in SuperCoach. Particularly in the center wing position. He has basically topped the position. For the last sort of three or four years. He averaged 71.8 last year which is massive. The fourth highest in total in the competition and he’s never averaged below 60 in the last three years. So when it comes to guns you’re looking for the consistency and guys like Jared Croker and Cameron Smith are right at the top of the list. Vut of course in SuperCoach we only have a 7 million-dollar salary cap to start the year which means you can’t fit in 17 Cameron Smiths or Jarrod Crokers. You’re probably going to have to start with say maybe eight of those in your side and the rest of your players are going to have to be mid ranges and cheapies. Hopefully your cheapies make enough cash so that you can upgrade the guns later in the year. You probably need about 19 or 20 guns by the end of the season so that you can get a great 17 on the park when it comes to the SuperCoach finals. Now let’s talk pods and Ryan James was definitely the pod of the season last year. He started in just 1.3 percent in the team so it’s barely owned by anyone. By the end of the year he was still only owned by fifteen percent of the teams but he finished the season with the third most points of any player. So obviously anyone who owned Ryan James got a massive advantage over the opposition given that most people most players who are in the top ten around by sort of 30, 40 maybe 50 percent of all SuperCoaches. Last year’s other standout pod was definitely Joseph LeiLua. His ownership dipped as low as 2.5% when he copped a suspension early in the year but he ended with the 10th most point of any player. So it was a serious comeback from him and by the end of the season he was owned by 22.7 percent so clearly those who jumped on Lailua early in the year when he was at the lower ownership scored a massive advantage over the competition. That’s it for pods and guns. We’ll catch you for the next unit.
