  • Team Name: Cotchie’s Cubs (Fantasy)
    Round 1 Scores: 2186
    Studs: Gaz(C)-141, Cotch(VC)-127, NRiewoldt-125, DBeams-122, DTyson-116, Sandi-110, LDunstan-106, DMartin & CWingard-100
    Duds: Daisy-65, LMcDonald-53,
    On the Chopping Block: Daisy, Murphy, McDonald, SShaw(BENCH), LTaylor(BENCH)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty happy with the first week. Very glad I swapped Danger for Riewoldt about 5 minutes before the lockout! :)

    Backs: Bartel, McVeigh and Langford were only decent scores, LMcDonald will probably go but will hold onto SMitchell and AGeorgiou. Shaw traded from bench.

    Mids: Very happy with Gaz, Cotch, Beams, Dunstan, & Tyson. Expected more from Marc Murphy and Daisy, thinking about trading both of them. Michie will stay as well as Ellis and Polec on the bench.

    Rucks: Very happy with the cheap selection of Hickey and Sandi, Derickx and Currie on bench will stay.

    Forwards: Happy with Riewoldt, Martin, Wingard, Roughie, Caddy & Pavlich. Rohan will stay on bench but will probably trade Taylor. Might trade Pavlich.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated :)

  • Team Name: Bad Juju
    Round 1 Scores: 2186 (rank 5629)
    Studs: Beams, Cotchin, Deledio, Watson, Sandi, Wright, N Roo, Dahlhaus, Dusty, several others in the 90’s.
    Duds: B.Martin, L.McDonald, X.Ellis, J.Ziebell, Sitchell,
    On the Chopping Block: Ziebell
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Could’ve been a huge week if a few of my duds had posted any sort of respectable score (60+). So filthy with Ziebell.. But overall pretty happy. Personal best ranking for me. My forward line was brilliant with a lowest score of 92, at the polar opposite of my defense with a best score of 93.

    What the hell is going on in supercoach and RealDT?? It still hasn’t doubled my VCs score.. I had Pendles VC using Fraser Thurlow as loophole captain. WTF? Surely that should work..

  • Score: 2201
    Studs: ablett, swallow, caddy, dunstan
    Duds: franklin, McDonald
    Gone: franklin
    Vent: How do we find our overall ranking on the fantasy app?
    And is there a way to view fantasy in safari? It always takes me to the screen to download the app and I can’t get passed it.

  • The AFL Fantasy site is absolutely awful. It’s filled with glitches and errors. It added up my score wrong. I had Goddard as my emergency on my bench so that Ablett my vice captain would score double points for a captain that didn’t play. I saved changes and Goddard was safely my locked in midfield emergency for the weekend. I went on the website numerous times to see Goddard locked in as my emergency. Then I realise at the end of the week that it hasn’t added his score. I added up my score numerous times to still see that it hasn’t added Goddard’s score. Can someone please help?

    On the Chopping Block:SMitchell for his price drop. Me (the coach)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever:I did a calculation and my Round 2 team that I cleared for the free hit would have scored just under 2400. FMDT.

    Round 1 Scores: 2234, rank 2141
    Studs: Watson, Enright, Cotchin, Mumford, Tyson, Macrae
    Duds: Swan, Houli, McDonough, Bird, McDonald
    On the Chopping Block: All the duds are gawwwwwwwn
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Bit pissed at AFL website. My C loophole got closed when the website refused to acknowledge my C swap from Swan to GAJ. So I got stuck with Swan’s 97×2.
    After starting last year at about rank 30000, I’m pretty chuffed with this round :)

    Team Name: Breaking Bad Gas
    Round 1 Scores: 2123, Rank 2109
    Studs: Swallow
    Duds: Daisy, Houli, Sitchell, Danger, McDonough
    On the Chopping Block: Daisy, Houli
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: zzzz having Langdon and Dunstan’s tons on the bench while fielding McDonald 53 and XEllis 56 :(

    First time playing with 30 trades (only started playing last year). I find the difference in strategy refreshing and challenging. For this reason I’m prolly gonna have to hold Danger, Daisy, McDonald and maybe Houli. We shall see.

    I find it odd that I scored lower in RDT, yet have a higher rank. My goal is still to crack the top 5000 this year, so happy with my start :)

    Duds: Mcdonald, Rohan, Dangerfield, Mitchell
    On the Chopping Block: None
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Ranked 1222 overall and my best ever score.

  • Anybody else’s score not register? I should have scored 2290, but have a big fat zero. I guess I might not have had a full team before the first lockout (couldn’t log in), but I’m 95% sure I did…

    One thing is for sure – I am never playing DT again. I was used to the site crashing the day before round 1 lockout, but to not be able to log in for days is beyond a joke.

    • Mate – I also have this problem.

      RD 1 SCORE

      AVG. 0.00

      I definitely had everything done.
