AFL Dream Team Finals Week 1 Review

The first week of the AFL Dream Team finals is over and we’ve seen a quarter of the finalists eliminated in their Elimination Final, another quarter straight through to the Preliminary Finals and the remaining half fighting on next week in the Semi Finals. It’s time to let the DT community know how you went and a good chance to brag or get your vent on… damn those late withdrawals, subs and players who didn’t step up to play Finals Dream Team!


Before you start preparing for next week, it’s time to review your squad’s effort this weekend in the DT TALK Round Review. Every Sunday night when the last game finishes, jump on here and let the world know how you went!

    Trades this week: none
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Got smashed after finishing 1st, 2nd, 3rd,7th & 8th in my leagues. One of my worst scores this year. Had Buddy, Swan, Chapman on the bench and Fyfe a late out. I will try and regroup for this weeks games.

    The wife’s team got smashed as well with Swan, Buddy, Ryder, Fyfe not playing (she traded out A.Hall 101 pts for Fyfe this week, F@%k!!!) . Having N.Reiwoldt subbed off, Suckling a sub and Grandad Goodes bumbling and fumbling not helping either.

    So that’s why DT shits me….

    Team Name: Devious FC
    Round 20 Score: 2348
    League Results: WW, DNQ for DT Talk Bombers finals but my score beat all top 16 finalists :(
    DT Studs: GIBSON, Cox, Dangerfield, Beams, Stevie J
    DT Duds: Thompson
    On the Chopping Block: no trades
    Trades this week: no trades
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Gibson saved me from a potentially embarrassing loss to Dr Dreamteam; his tonne closely matched Jobe Watson’s effort and because I was ahead leading up to the final match, I was able to finish with a win.

    I won’t be posting my scores for the rest of the season as I’m off on holidays this week until mid-September. To all the Dreamteam Talk crew, your efforts week in and week out are truly a testament to your passion and enthusiasm for this enjoyable game that is Dreamteam.

      Team Name: The Grasshoppers
      Round 20 Score: 2237 – best this season (yeah, I know…)
      League Results: WWW
      DT Studs: Cox, Danger, Stevie, Beamer, Birch
      DT Duds: S.Thompson (what the actual fudge??), Elliott, Suckling (not his fault), Zorks, Giles
      On the Chopping Block: n/a
      Trades this week: none, used the last 2 earlier this week
      Vent/Brag/Whatever: I was safe in the one I care about (Elim Final), thanks to my opponent leaving Beams on the bench and not as emergency, then had Chappy and Fyfe out; won another EF fairly easily and was sweating on the third (Qualy Final), with my Gibbo and Heppell facing his Captain Watson. Thankfully Watto died a bit towards the end while Gibbo delivered the goods and helped me get a 12 point win. So I’m into a Prelim and two Semis, which I’m pretty stoked about.

    DT Duds: Fyfe, Giles, Robbo
    On the Chopping Block: Zorko
    Trades this week: Zorko > Johnson
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Bringing in Watson for Sloane was a luxury move, but it really saved my ass! Having Fyfe late withdrawl with no emerg is the second time I have screwed up with emergencies this year, and I needed 200 combined from Watson and Heppel to win my all important elim final, and he didn’t disappoint. He is an automatic starter for me in 2013 no doubt about it. In Wattto we trust!

    Since I am in Year 12, I attempted to do the right thing, and deleted my team so that it did not interfere with my studies. I deleted it in Round 8. Just found out that my frozen team, which has not been touched since Round 8 just beat my Dad by 8 points in our main league. And this team still had all the bad rooks (Horse, Ellis) as well as having JPK on the bench, Ivan Maric on the bench and Marc Murphy as Captain.

    Bragging rights for eternity.

    DT Studs: Deledio, Birchall, Goddard, Jobe, Gibson, Coxy, Beams, Danger, Treloar
    DT Duds: Rockliff, Adcock
    On the Chopping Block: Rockliff/Adcock seriously you pay good coin and they dish up 60’s?Been underperforming for a while now. Not what we are looking for boys. Take a leaf out of Sam Gibson/Treloar’s books and step up!
    Trades this week: Too early to tell
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Happy the boys stepped it when needed. A couple of under par efforts and the loss of Swanny threatened to de-rail us, but we stuck to it and came away with 5 good wins. Came from nowhere in my cash league to snatch a 6 point win after Daniel Wells got injured and Jobe racked it up as captain! Two league finals next week and the week off in the other three.
