Dr Dream Team is a FRAUD

Ah, hello there… Albert Lord here, PhD DT. I’m here to discuss this fraud that is all over our computer screens. The man in question is this Dr Dream Team character.

Ah, hello there… Albert Lord here, PhD DT. I’m here to discuss this fraud that is all over our computer screens.

The man in question is this Dr Dream Team character.

This man has been posting on the AFL website, Twitter and Facebook about Dream Team. He is the AFL’s expert in Dream Team. He has be going at it for a couple of years now with basically no success and very odd articles that often have no point (remember his article about rounding off).

Only this year he has added his “PhD (AFL)” to his title despite writing for the last couple of seasons. What a clown. I was at the Dream Team University with this muppet and while I was doing my best with the ladies on pub night, he was still working out the difference in points between a kick and a handball. Honestly!

The big Today Tonight revelation here is that the Dean of the Uni (we called him Coxy) had various meetings with Dr DT which resulted in an IQ test and subsequent dismissal from the course. So he didn’t even graduate… let alone do his doctorate.


Now while he may have been bluffing all of his followers with his back to back 2150+ scores and ranking inside the top 2000, he has shown this weekend why he indeed didn’t graduate. As ANYONE who knows anything about Dream Team, you can’t get points if you aren’t playing. North Melbourne have the bye this round yet the so called PhD left Drew Petrie on the ground. Now this wouldn’t be disastrous, but his emergency is follow Kangaroo Cam Richardson. All this with Brandon Matera and Dion Prestia sitting on the pine.

Rookie error!

Now that is off my chest, I am going back to working on my formula to gain maximum points from these multi-bye rounds. Just remember, there is only one PhD DT!

    one might think all of the docs poxy articles are just a ruse to put the masses off the tail of the decent players. i mean every single person he suggests is either a dud pick or a speculative one.

    hes in it for his own means and dosent want anyone else to get close!

    Atrocious. Things like this and footy shows having a DT/SC segment where the panelists obviously have no idea about the game that really GRINDS MY GEARS!

    Think you need to get the chop out to chop up these fraudsters!

    I couldn’t believe it when I logged in last night to check out Dr DT’s team (playing him in one of my leagues) and saw what he had done. Did he not write a DT101 article? Surely having 22 players on the field is the most basic part of DTing. All you have to do is make sure you have players who aren’t playing on the bench and those that are on your field – simple.

    Dr DT = FAIL!

    Are you saying that he’s entered lock-out with this North Melbourne error?

      I’ve already stated my fears about him being a doctor. As I said, most doctors will sue their HANDS for a prostate exam!

      Al I can say is, I now know why he always has that stupid mask over his face!

    Hi all,

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but is there anyway of looking at another person’s team for the current round during lock out? I know you can see the progressive head to head scores of the other players in your league but can you expand their team to see their current live team? I hope my question makes sense. Thanks in advance.

    The new “green dots” are awesome. I’d like to see a black one for byes or even a “B” to show which teams have the bye. Handy to sub them off during the week. I’m sure Dr Fraud will do that from next week! ;)

          Big DC suggested that if your player gets subbed off you also get the points of the player subbed on, thus getting a full games worth of points from your player. Not a bad idea if they are going to start subbing the guns of the game

            Getting points for players who aren’t in your team? That would be the moment DT officially jumps the shark.

    Am i the only one who disagrees with the green dots then? Sure they are super easy to use and simplify things, but i find it a tad unfair for the people who actually take the time to check the team sheets and look at who the subs are going to be. It also makes it easier for the neweer people to just smash out a team in 20 minutes of people who arent injured. I remember when I first started i picked a few people who were not on the injury list but just didnt get selected to play. So ever since then I have taken the time to check the team sheet. I think they should remove it so people actually have to do some form of research rather then pick and trade.

      I used to share your opinion, but like everything, this game is progressing. It needs to be accessible to everyone… not just the top 5% of people who want an edge over their opposition.

      If our website (and all others) wasn’t around, then we would be doing a whole heap better at the game. 5 years ago we did a lot of research reading training reports, looking at under priced players, those coming back from injury, etc. We now have the Freako’s stats which helps a truckload and websites like ours pump out heaps of info to help us.

      If a green dot saves me 10 minutes a week, then that’s a good thing! Embrace it… don’t be bitter! ;)

        Yeah i know what you mean. This year has by far been my best start and that was with a shotty selwood (should have stuck with bartel or not overlooked pendles)

        I was talking to my brother last night and he goes “ill just check the team list” obviously just before the game. He then logs into dreamteam and in seconds just goes “yeah got a full team this week for the first time, should beat dave” (dave being his best mate). Was such a shame seen as he was stupid enough to buy in lake and chapman who were injured for round 1. he did this without checking team list or injury list. He is also the type of person to not research anything and stack his mid with 5 premiums and then wonder why he lost.

        While it simplifies things for me it is just bridging the gap between lower level players. BTW i am not some dream team god and have never really taken it seriously until this year when i decided i wanted a 2000+ average, so that involved some research on my behalf and a lot at that. So to see it at first was a shame seen as I actually check the team sheets.

        Also thanks for this website it has helped me a lot this year with my team and if you guys make a subscription fee I would happily pay.

        DT is really going to come down to luck if not already. I’ve got a mate who has only just gotten into football mainly this year and is following the GC suns. Joined our DT league for the first time and his DT is 100% cookie cutter. He reads a lot of the bigfooty boards (sorry if I can’t mention this on your site) while at work and reads your site to get his tips. While I obviously read your site too I try not to go the cookie cutter approach and add some uniqueness to the top tier of our league. (having been involved with DT from when it first started so many years ago.)

        Unfortunately the uniqueness isn’t playing a part this year and a lot of success so far is coming from cookie cutter teams/going by what others think is a good starting team/reading BF/DT talk etc and not having your own research.

        What he/they don’t realise though that it’s a long season, it stretches *nearly* as far as the whole AFL season (which is a friggen long time) and that you really have to be on top of your AFL game to succeed.

        There is and will always be luck involved with DT’ing. People just have to accept it, embrace it and realise that breaking away from the ‘cookie cutters’ happens during the season with your 24 trades this season.

        Will take a lot of research and effort to go that extra mile this year or will it be purely luck?

          Yeah not being a dick or anything but there is actually NO skill involved in dt. You can employ strategies and tactics but there is NO skill. The skill comes from the players ability to score well and therefore there is no skill on our part.

            April 12, 2011 at 2:54 pm

            No mate, I agree with above. Choosing the right strategy is luck, and trading now is more about reading a five minute blog, and luck again.

            Think of last week, those who brought in libba over curnow because he was ‘duee; against the GC, and Curnow hits him out of the park. All the research and knowledge said Libba’s the one for that week, and he failed, Curnow didn’t.

            Those who chose Guns & Rooks spent the week looking at break-even’s and trying to burn two trades to ‘fix’ their team with “extra” trades. Those who went with a mixed Guns/Mids/Rooks approach spent it working out who to get rid of Foley and Everitt for. Either way, most went Hibberd to Curnow/Libba, or Foley to Curnow/Libba. Yes the Mids gave an extra bit of cash in the kitty, but the Guns/Rooks coaches had already spent that on their starting premiums or left it up their sleeves. Both strategies approached last week the same as they tried to fix their teams.

            Trade Strategy.
            Then their are those who held fire. Which again is as much as luck than skill and research. Those who held off bringing in Tapscott or trading out Adcock will feel justified. But again, that’s luck. Those who held off getting in Curnow or trading out Ottens/Broughton etc may feel hard done by, but again, that’s luck. Otten got stuck in the back pocket after Davis went down, and Tapscott just couldn’t work his way into the game.

            The point is, you can do all the research and play the strategy as much as you want. One sub at the wrong (or right) time for your named/opponents player, a concussion in the first quarter, or a suspension that either was/or was not there is how this years Dreamteam will be won. Not by how good your excel spreedsheets and background knowledge are, or by your trades and strategies.

      I think DT is not about flicking back and forth between your team and the official teams to compare, its about making good decisions. The dots save time but they don’t make the decisions for you.

      Besides this year, with three 11 spots on the pine you are more likely to have a full team most weeks and you’ll have to make the tough decisions. Darling or Matera, Prestia or Harris, Duigan or Lower etc etc. The green dots don’t help you there.

        You still have to check the teams…are any of you just going to look, see green dots, and go cool, everyone is playing….we will all still check, and pick up late withdrawals etc, that the green dot users dont.

          It is just such a shame that they add these features for nubs. I bet now A) you struggling to make the top 8 or B) you realised that it is impossible for you to make the top 8 so you are trying to finish 9-12 to try and get a good finish for bottom 8 finals. I can gurantee you will not finish anywhere near the top 1000. I am not even trying to win the car and im out ranking you so stfu nub. I couldnt really give 2 shits about your poor quality cookie cut team which is going to struggle to make 8. It is just a shame that dt made this game better for newer player because now newer players will thrive e.g – unceramonious

            also im averaging a very healthy 2150, big call me not finishing top 1000, lol the odds are only 240 000 to 1 or so…so um nice work muppet.

    Maybe AFL advised Dr Dream team against smashing out huge scores week by week, as he is also a generic fill for leagues without enough participants. We were one player short and got his ass dumped into our league. We didn’t even get a choice, so that sucked ass!

    I think alot of people would be upset if they lost their league GF to a generic fill team who has ALL week studying their team when most people spend maybe 1-2 hours at best and just do it for a bit of fun and banter between friends. Would make the casual player less interested and thats not what the AFL wanted. You’ll probably see it being made more and more simplistic in the near future. I mean now it even tells you when trading if the player is injured and how long that injury is expected to be. Plus the green dots, and assistant coach. Whats next?

    I think you are only allowed to call yourself a DT Doctor giving ANYONE advice is if or once you have won the competition, or end up in top 10 in my opinoin in a past year. Only then do you have a foot to stand on, giving anyone else advice.

    I very much disliked how he took a swipe at the DTTalk boys.
