My Team 2012: Version 3.0

Finally AFL Dream Team 2012 is open!

This means we can now officially start making our teams ready for the new season. This here is the post where you can comment on your own team, help others out, ask random questions, etc. Make sure it isn’t completely a ‘me, me, me’ place to be… offer up advice for those who are playing the game and visiting our site. Remember, you may not agree with someone, but you don’t have to make it personal!

  • hey guys, i am selling robbie gray,

    and have four rookies in the squad. zorko, walsh, cameron, and treloar.
    who do i bring in for gray to upgrade one of these four? and which of the four?

    • that’s a confusing question but if i got even close to understanding then: i reckon bring in viv michie for robbie gray then trade viv michie for someone better than robbie gray

  • Wow this forum is loving the Robbo Dusty Zaha Sidey combos in the forward line! I hope we have got it right!

    After reading thoroughly through AFL Prosepctus I have changd my side.
    It now looks like

    TEAM NAME: Whatagreatteam
    DEF: H. Scotland, B. Goddard, B. Deledio, T. Armstrong, M. Clarke, T. Gillies, S. Morris (S. Darley, N. Blee)
    MID: S. Pendlebury, J. Selwood, S. Thompson, B. Gibbs, K. Horsely, A. Miles (D. Zorko, L. Brown)
    RUC: D. Cox, M. Leuenberger (J. Giles, O. Stephenson)
    FWD: A. Goodes, D. Zaharakis, D. Martin, S. Sidebottom, J. Watts, D. Pfeiffer, A. Saad (C. Hampton, T. Walsh)
    CASH LEFT: $57,100

    I have chosen Midfielder/Forward D. Zorko (Brisbane) $104,200 on my midfield bench to allow him to substitute with forwards that have DPP.
    I have chosen Midfielder/Defender L. Brown (Adeleaide) $98,700 for the same reason with the defenders.
    From what I understand this would not be needed when trading players, but would come in handy to avoid a donut during the season without using a trade.

    A couple of unique players I have chosen

    Defender T. Gillies (Geelong) $138,500
    22 year old entering his 4th season.
    Was talked about being traded, but the Cats held onto him.
    Only 2 games in 2011, but with Milburn retiring there is room in the side.
    Plays for a high scoring DT team.

    Midfielder/Forward D. Zaharakis (Essendon) $443,200
    22 year old entering his 4th season.
    Has DPP.
    Durable, missed only 2 games in the past 2 seasons and played all 22 games last year.
    Averaged 24 disposals from rd 13 last year when played in the midfield.

    Forward J.Watts (Melbourne) $359,300
    2008 Number 1 Draft Pick entering his 4th season.
    Another pre season makes him fitter and stronger for his 196cm frame.
    Played all 22 games last year.
    With the addition of M. Clark this may allow him to play further up the ground.
    Also, won’t be number 1 key forward when he does play forward.
    Melbourne have the easiest draw.

    Also, what are your thoughts on Deledio? Are you goin to start with him if he plays 1-2 NAB cup matches? He may be eased into the season (subbed off during early regular season games?) and moved into the midfield as he improves fitness.

    Have you chosen a similar team? or have any thoughts please reply
