  • Team Name: Tapdog’s Dees
    Round 23 Scores: 2579
    League Finals Results: haha
    Final Overall Ranking: 1052
    Norm Smith Medallist:
    Studs: Gibson, Mackie, Kelly, Captian Rocky, Jelwood, Hanley, Kennedy, Sloane, Barlow, Martin, Dusty, Bartel, Titchell and a few others just missing the ton:)
    Duds: Kruzer, Picken, Dangerfield
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Moved up just over 1200 spots this week to finish my highest ever ranking. Quite impressed just annoyed Pendles, Picken my new trade in, Dangerfield, Kruezer and Goddard didn’t really fire up so much. Would have cracked well over 2600 if they had scored to their potential. Oh well:)

    • Finished 2nd overall in the Melbourne Verified League also out of 213 so quite happy there and also 10th out of 3705 out of all Melbourne supporters entered:) Gotta take some positive out of something:)

    • Good shit man, that’s a monster score

    • stand corrected, round 23 rank of 5!!! WOW, I’m happy:)

  • Team Name: Nick’s Ninjas
    Round 23 Scores: 2411
    League Finals Results: Won GF
    Final Overall Ranking: 1256
    Norm Smith Medallist: STEFAN MARTIN
    Studs: Enright, Martin, Rocky(c), Priddis, Gaff, Jelwood, Mitchell, Bartel, Dusty

  • Round 23 Scores: 2236
    League Finals Results: Knocked out last week
    Final Overall Ranking: 946
    Norm Smith Medallist: T. Rockliff
    Studs: Rocky, Gaff, Priddis, Stef, Robbo, Dusty, Bartel
    Duds: Picken, Shaw, Williams, Pearce, Pendles, Danger, Sidey, Heppell, Sauce, Zaha
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 2nd year playing properly, 2nd consecutive top 1000 finish. Lucky to just sneak in at the end of the final round though! Official team Brownlow winner is: L. Hodge with 14 votes. Not a bad pick to start the year, but trading him out twice hurts. Beams 2nd shows the disadvantages of the Brownlow voting system, Pendles/Rocky=3rd show consistency and pig go a long way. 3 way tie for the anti-Brownlow: Barlow, Devon, Oxley. When you show the capacity to go huge consistently, don’t put out crap in between. Time to rage trade… in January!

  • Team Name: TT22
    Round 23 Scores: 2315
    League Finals Results: Won GF
    Final Overall Ranking: 9678
    Norm Smith Medallist: Tom Mitchell
    Studs: Selwood, Enright, Lewis, Barlow, Sloane, Dusty, Lids, TOM MITCHELL!
    Duds: S.Edwards filling in for Mcveigh/Boyd, Kruz, Shaw, Pendles
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Had a shocking start to the year with lots of injuries (ranked around 30k mid season). But picking up Barlow 2 weeks ago and Sloane for Parker made up for it. Not 1 score under 100 from either of them.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: What a great year of fantasy footy! easily been my best year, pretty happy with my ranking too.
    Pick of the Season: JACK STEVEN! Had him from round 1 and backed him in and boy did he do me wonders. bit of an up and under end of the season but still as the 2nd or 3rd highest scoring player of the season, can’t complain! On ya Stevo!

    Duds: Shaw, Picken, Dangerfield, Neale
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: moved up to 1716 overall in classic. Dropped a fair bit in RDT on the back of no trades finally coming back to hurt me.

    Can’t believe the tie in RDT final, especially considering my opponent had like 4 out in uniques

    Studs: Gaff, Lewis, Stanton, Selwood, Ebert, Rockliff C, S Martin, D Martin, Bont & Adams
    Duds: my whole backline & Atkins
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Think I will avoid mid-pricers in the future. I reckon that has been my downfall as I always seem to get off to a slow start and it takes all season to get up there. Never actually finished my team in the end. Abllet & Rocky IN & OUT X 3, Lewis & Hodge suspensions. All these restings etc toward the end of the season. Anyone who says the new format of two trades a week isn’t any good hasn’t got a clue….

    Norm Smith Medallist: Taylor Adams
    Studs: Priddis, Hanners, Adams, Armitage (Rocky, Stefan, Selwood, Gibson, Dusty, Bartel and Titch all great but weren’t unique)lo
    Duds: Brought in Houli, underwhelming. Besides that I can only really pick on Amon and Holmes!
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: A guy plays that well last week (Amon) and gets named sub. Ridiculous. Fortunately my opponent had to play Edwards on field and got the same treatment, then his premiums let him down. I am so so so glad the sub is gone next year, it’s taken years off my life this weekend.

  • Thanks to all for the great year. I look forward to starting to post with a new team in November! Cheers, Fooz. Ps. Finished at 6711, my worst result in a few years. Oh well. There’s always next year for team: tempus fugit.

  • Despite the last 3 rds being average I’m happy to have finished at pos 954 overall in my first season of fantasy footy. Much fun was had! Enjoy watching the finals everyone

    Round 23 Scores:2363
    League Finals Results:Winner
    Final Overall Ranking:9
    Norm Smith Medallist:Have to go to Mackie as i swapped him for Picken 3 weeks ago.
    Studs:all did well except
    Duds:Motlop and Amon (vest)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever:i maybe the only one that feels this way but could someone please fix the fantasy app? 3 years straight ive lost interest in it as it simply is not user friendly. plus it doesn’t help when u simply cant log into ur account a hour b4 the round starts. (it happened twice in the first 6 rounds to me and some mates) thats when i stopped playing fantasy for the year. But i guess the positive for me is i got to spend more time with real dream team.
