Happy NAB Challenge week! Thursday we get a taste of some real footy for the year but before we do, we take a look at who has been burning up the track, training the house down and every other cliché under the sun. A few intra-club matches were played over the weekend and we find out who fired. Warnie chats with good friend of the show, Louie from Champion Data plus Roy reveals his team. All that and more on the official AFL Fantasy podcast.

  • Awesome read Traders. Love your work. So much so that now I’m copying Roy’s team instead of Warnies. Way better than my team

  • ADELAIDE will adopt a “risk-free” policy with Brad Crouch during the NAB Challenge after the luckless midfielder pulled up with general soreness from his starring role in Friday’s intraclub match, coach Don Pyke says.

    A foot stress fracture restricted Crouch from adding to his 25 senior games last season, with the 22-year-old managing just four SANFL appearances before the issue flared up again.

    The Crows have high hopes for 2013’s NAB AFL Rising Star runner-up to help cover the gaping chasm left by Patrick Dangerfield this year and Pyke said Crouch would be eased into the pre-season matches, starting against West Coast on Sunday in Unley.

    “At this stage we don’t want to take any risks with Brad. He’s not sore in the foot, which is a good thing, it’s just general soreness in terms of returning to play,” Pyke told radio station 5AA.

    “We’ll see how he comes and we’ll take a risk-free policy with him, because he was in good form last Friday and I think he’s going to be a good player for us this year.

    “(Soreness is) to be expected – he hasn’t played for the best part of almost a year.

    “He’s a strong, fierce competitor and maybe he just went a bit overs on Friday. So we need to sometimes pull him back a little bit to protect him from himself at times.”

  • Love your work boys. Can’t wait for thursday night. The house mates and girlfriend will be rolling eyes when i have the game on with your commentary, but the hell with them. Might even look into getting a twitter account if I fell the need to shoot a question through. Good luck boys!

    • Thoughts on Brad Crouch

      • He should still be right. Pulled up sore after the inta club match. No biggie tho. Might sit out 1 training session. He should play 2 of the 3 nab cup games. Of course the crows are going to take it easy and monitor him because they want him playing for another 10 years. I think that story about Crouch the other day was due to lack of afl news. Alot of players are sore. But the kids normally bounce back very quickly

  • Did Warnie just give away the Freako’s identity?

  • Nice work guys.

    Just wondering is it in your contract to ruin great PODs? ;)

  • What about Nathan Drummond had 25 points in first game before acl tear in first or second quayer

    • he is still a while off and probs wont play until at least round 6, with round 12 being more likely

  • What is everyone’s realistic opinion on what Taylor Adams will average for the year?
    Looking at current selections, he is only in 3.36% of teams so far in AF.
    If ownership stays that low he would make a great POD.

  • 1st post all year and already stirring the shit.

    Let us talk a bit more about Fremantle’s great early fixtures. Load up on those Freo boys early. We know they started last season strongly with a less favorable schedule.


  • As for all this preseason dribble, don’t get too into it. We all saw last season how players in NAB didn’t translate into the season proper. I’m talking about role changes, younger players that got a chance in the NAB but were overlooked later.

    Basically, as Eddie McGuire would say: noone cares about the NAB.

    Let us not forget the lessons of Lumumba.

  • Will tonight’s fantasy broadcast be turned into a podcast?
