CALVINATOR. Coached by Calvin.

Team Name: Calvinator
Final Ranking: 4,010th
League Results: 3rd
DT Brownlow Medalist: Dane Swan
DT Rising Star: Ashton Hams
Best Round 1 Starter: Luke Hodge
Worst Round 1 Starter: Robbie Gray, Nic Nat (sorry mate)
Best Trade: Brendon Goddard
Worst Trade: Jonno Brown/Matthew Pavlich
What have you learnt this year: That there is a big difference between people who chase a good national ranking compared to the people who chase league wins. There was always a difference but the gap between these people and how they play the game is amazing. The other thing I learnt is that ‘dual position players’ are worth their weight in gold and something I will look at next year more carefully. Oh and I also learnt you can’t control injuries, late withdrawals or just bad luck, so be unique and pick dudes you like cheering for. Cause at the end of the day… if you are going to go any good, you’ll need a shitload of good luck.
