  • What an absolute joke.

    I been tracking fantasy scores on afl app and there is a rediculois amount of points being missed. I’ve seen Tom Mitchell and mcveigh put in 2 tackles each which were both not added to their scores. In addition to Tom Mitchell’s 2 handballs which were also not added. Fkng joke whoever does these stats. Not happy.
    Happened last week with pavlich too

    • they were tackles… but unfortunately the ball was disposed of and ended up in a north players hands so they dont usually get counted. although i think i saw one bounce a couple times before a north player picked it up and it still didnt get counted whihc i thought it should

      • Guys, the tackle has to result in a stoppage for it to be statistically counted (a free kick awarded, or a ball up).

        If the ball bounced out and was picked up the North player, and the ump hasn’t blown a whistle, it’s just playing on

        • if it causes an ineffctive disposal its a tackle, if it falls to the ground and bouces a couple times before being picked up by a player it should be counted as ineffective

          • They aren’t mutually exclusive aspects – a player can drop the ball (improper disposal) accidentally in a tackle if no prior opportunity exists to disposal of it.

            And although ineffective disposal can be caused by a tackle, counting it doesn’t mean a tackle is automatically recognized. As already said, a tackle is only marked down when it causes a stoppage. The additional explanation (bigfloppy provides) doesn’t alter this whatsoever. In the last example, if the ump blew the whistle for ineffective disposal, it’s still a stoppage.

          • tackles arent only counted in dt if its a stoppage

    • If a game can make you that angry, I suggest you re-evaluate your priorities, although it may be frustrating…after all it’s just a game

  • Great start to my Sunday! (Thnx Currie)!Titchell lift! I really need McVeigh to junk it up…

  • Wow I dodged a bullet….Like many I had Mumford, and also like many, on my ruck bench I have Currie.

    My other ruck bench is Dericx. Yesterday I was looking at my ruck bench and noticed I had the ‘E’ on Dericx. I was thinking why the hell did I put the ‘E’ on him instead of Currie. Currie averages a small amount more so I usually would of put the ‘E’ on him.

    I think it was on Dericx from the start of the year when I figured it didn’t matter which one I put it on. But very lucky, if I had a look at my ruck emergencies I’d say I would of made Currie emergency.

    • I guess that was karma, announcing to the world how lucky I was to have Dericx as sub. Oh well 31 beats 0

  • RDT – Scooter captain, Griffiths/Hanley/Caddy all onfield, Polec on bench
    AF – Scooter, Ward, Caddy, Hanley

    yeah…. I don’t need to say anymore

  • Mitchell making himself a candidate to be subbed out again.

  • Mitchell now up to 10. Breaks the drought.

  • Rohan-Lloyd with Caddy on the Field


    Caddy-Lloyd with Lloyd on the Field


  • I’d prefer Rohan-Lloyd with Lloyd on the field

  • And of course derickx is subbed off

  • GREEN VEST: Mitchell avoids it.

    Derickx gets it

  • Considering whats happened this round I feel like Sandi could be a late out

  • I am so fucking pissed. Chapman a late out leaves me with 20 from Rohan who was the subsitute, then mumford a late out means that i was supposed to get curries score, but he was a fucking late out meaning that i go from 200 to about 20.

  • I was getting nervous hearing the commentators talking about Wright going down the race and sub activated…..til I realise the Saints have a Wright too…phew!

  • Hello Goddard upgrade around the byes!
    Subbed off for 13… does anyone know the extent of his injury?

    • Leg problem..apparently he had it at the start of play, but Essendon tried to get him to play through it.

      May be a costly move for Essendon, as Goddard and Chapman have been in awesome form lately.

    • Sshhh James!

  • What’s going on with Sandilands?

    23 hitouts won, but only 36 points —- basically 13 points only if he was a non-ruck

  • Had a donut in the rucks thanks to Mumford and Currie’s late withdrawal.. 36 and 37 from Caddy and Griffiths respectively, but am still somehow on track for a 2200+ score!
    2097 at half time on Ess/Freo game, with Merrett, Watson and Sandilands in play

  • Traded Gleeson out for Crouch this week…d’oh. Kept him in RDT though.

  • How about touching the ball, Merrett?

  • 2154 with a doughnut, went from 189th to 188th overall Yeess!

  • Thought I did OK considering Chapman, Hickey, Currie all were injured and below par scores from Watson, Sandilands, Cotchin, Tyson, Roughead, Griffiths, I guess 1977 isn’t too bad really.

  • What did everyone think of Nahas, subbed out on 79 is pretty good, whats his job security like?
