    Duds: Gawn, Stef Martin

    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)

        I’m not blaming them, I’m thanking them. Got me a nice ranking boost when all the sheep follow the advice to go against a guy averaging 130.

    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.

    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.

            Wow if only you knew anything about football… but here you go:

            Out on the full: a kick that travels across the boundary line without first being touched by a player or hitting the ground. This will result in a free kick to the opposition team, taken by the player closest to the point at which the ball crossed the boundary line

            CJ mate. Out on the full isn’t -3. Just deal with it

    • Avatar


      August 20, 2017 at 9:11 pm

      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.

      • Avatar


        August 20, 2017 at 9:22 pm

        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.

          August 20, 2017 at 9:41 pm

          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)

          August 20, 2017 at 10:12 pm

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

      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!

          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

    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!!!

        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!
