  • 2100 in bottom 8 prelim. Through to crap 8 granny

  • Team Name: Robert top Keegan bottom
    Round 22 Scores: 2567
    Are you in the GF: Yep
    Studs: Almost everyone, Titch (C).
    Duds: Gawn, Stef Martin
    On the Chopping Block: Gawn, Luke Ryan
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My highest score ever but it sounds like it might be pretty standard for this week… 300k in the bank to double upgrade for the GF. Thinking Gawn > Kreuzer and Ryan > Houli

  • Thanks Calvin for sucking in the sheep with yet another atrocious illogical captain choice. You sir, are a legend. (The Rocky big up was also great work, baaaaaa)

  • 2452
    Up there with my best scores of the year.
    Won my three prelim finals.
    Worst scores: Roughie 63 (he’ll be yeo or heeney next week), Darcey 72 (he’ll be Grundy next week), Roberton 72 (might have to stick with him if I have to change T. Adams), Franklin 76 (hopefully he’ll kick a bag next week).
    Everyone else was fine.

  • Team Name: HeathShawsShankedRedemption
    Round 22 Scores: 2330
    Are you in the GF: Nope. Lost by 260.
    Studs: Doc, Titch, Dusty, Macrae
    Duds: Crisp, Ryan, Rocky, Buddy
    On the Chopping Block: Probably doesn’t matter now haha. Maybe upgrade Darcy.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Thought I had a pretty good score, but got smashed by 260 in my prelim and seems everyone elses score was better!

  • Did anyone else notice Dusty took a mark and put his shot for goal out on the full in the last few minutes but still registered 6 points with no free kick against all game? I noticed because I seem to have lost by 2 points because of it, baring a late score correction.

    • Out on the full isn’t worth -3

    • you are correct, its a free against, but its not a negative 3 the player receives, but a zero. eg, the kick, which was legal scores 3, out of bounds is -3 equaling zero, the mark also counts as 3 so a total of 3 for the one play.

      • Exactly, that is what I meant if it wasn’t clear.
        Mark +3, Kick +3, Free Against -3 = 3 points.
        If you look at Martin’s match stats he had no Frees against and he went from 118 to 124. I lost by 2.

        • not sure, unless as you said, its delayed or if out of bounds arent included as stats in the FA column. Something Ive never really checked before, but under the afl rules, it is a free against, not just a free. (if that makes sense)

        • Yeah I didn’t realise this until recently either, but you don’t get -3 for kicks out on the full.

      • Wrong!

        Good Luck

  • Help Needed – Dilemma
    In a cash league. Who Wins?

    Are you in the GF: YES 2 gfs
    Studs: titch (cap) menegola, macrae, dusty, zorko, adams, docherty, danger, kelly, laird, yeo
    Duds: rocky, franklin, s.martin
    On the Chopping Block: not eally sure. I have a pretty much full premo team with gaff sitting on the bench. Ill try to upgrade someone
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My highest ever score in 6 years of dt, got me up to 45 overall now. No chance of getting #1 but happy with this year :D

  • Exactly, that is what I meant if it wasn’t clear.
    Mark +3, Kick +3, Free Against -3 = 3 points.
    If you look at Martin’s match stats he had no Frees against and he went from 118 to 124. I lost by 2.

    • Kicking the ball out on the FULL is NOT I REPEAT NOT A MINUS 3(-3), Its a free kick but NO PLAYER loses points for it!

      Good Luck in 2018

      • CJ listen to The Chosen Won ,

        that is correct .. you do not lose 3 points for out on the full

        • 15.6.1 A Free Kick shall be awarded against a Player who:
          (a) Kicks the football Out of Bounds on the Full;
          maybe fantasy desnt do it, but the official AFL rules state it is a free against. Fantasy rules simply state -3 free against

      • I think you need to explain it one more time… you cannot fix stupid

      • Thanks for an actual answer and discussion on it. There are a few people who can actual be civil.

  • Team Name: Superswans
    Round 22 Scores: 2432
    Are you in the GF: Yes
    Studs: Titch (cap) Jacobs, Macrae, Dusty, Duncan, Adams, Doc, Danger, Kelly, Laird, Yeo
    Duds: Ryan, Buddy,Stef
    On the Chopping Block: Ryan
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Thought i was going pretty good till i saw some of the scores on here .. only went up 100 places lol , must have been some epic scores.. Had Ryan on the field and Witho on the pine ..

  • 2577… and would have scored more without doing trades this week

    Played Merrett and Witherden over Sloane and Simpson..

    What was the top score of the week? Must have been huge!

  • Secondly.. last trade to upgrade Dahl.. Do not trust the flog.. Boak Ryder or Billings? I am thinking Paddy atm.. hopefully an easy safe 100 against the Suns.

  • 2348, with a lot of +100’s and big scores.
    (Big shout out to Scharenberg who’s really performed for me in the last four rounds)
    But I lost my Prelim!
    Been on top of my league all season and have my best overall ranking ever … Hodge and Sicily lost it for me. Seriously, a combined total of 70?! WTF?
    And that’s why this game shits me lol

  • Team Name: Tom’s Tigers
    Round 22 Scores: 2623
    Are you in the GF: Yeah
    Studs: Only 4 players under 90
    Duds: Roberton – Was my only trade in this week, was tossing up between him and Houli
    On the Chopping Block: No more trades :(
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My highest score ever and 10th overall for the week. If only i’d gone Houli over Roberton I would have topped it!

  • Sicily lost it for me.
    7 frees against! WTF?????.
    Hope my sons learns from this as he played today securing the minor premiership.
    Just goes to show how hard AFL is and maybe Sicily would be better playing rugby because he has just put cross hairs on his head- Remember Barry Hall!!!

    • Its ok many got fooled by Ty Vickery back in 2010 when he had 101 round 1 and thousands traded him in only for him to average 40 over next 5…lololol

      Good Luck

      • I sense a bit of shadenfreude there Choice N01, however, I am new to this shit but can see the funny side too.
        It would be nice if Calvin, Roy and Warnie added into there ratings of consistency and going big called the idiot rating, because I reckon if they put all the village idiots in one village, Silicy would be the idiot of that village!
