      That’s a great score! Got 2634 and won my GF. Thanks to Roy, Calvin and Warnie and all DT Talk contributors for your research, advice and helpful assistance throughout the season. It is much appreciated. Looking forward to next year!

        As much as I appreciate all the research and info, it’s been another great year of laughs and outrage – thanks everyone!

    Moreira’s magic is the sickest bad beat story I’ve EVER heard. He wins title last year. Comes joint first in a quest to go back to back but finishes second because the guy who he tied with (wait for it) registrated first.

    Seriously that is absolutely disgusting. Shame on you AFL fantasy. It’s a shame the whole community won’t boycott you next year because you deserve it..

      Totally agree. Fanhub are an embarrassment year after year but this is a new level.

        Ties are separated by registration order and Selby’s in 2nd.

      That’s farrrrked! Not even how that can be justified as a reason to seperate them!

      August 26, 2018 at 7:40 pm

      Yes it’s rough but I think Selby himself would be the first person to say that the other bloke is just as deserving of the car – let’s be real Selby already has the 1 car from last year! The cash prize isn’t bad after all

      Just FYI (and not saying I agree with it). That rule has been in place for at least 10 years… and SuperCoach has exactly the same thing.

      I would say there will be a review of how this is done in the future, but before you go on bashing people – AFL Fantasy / Fanhub / etc – just be clear that this has a) been in place for a very long time and been in the terms and conditions, and b) the competitor(s) have exactly the same rule in place.

      Hopefully a positive resolution for all is forthcoming.

    Scored 2746 (my highest ever)
    Won my Grand Final (up against a top 10 ranked team, what a hoot!)
    Studs: Gotta be my three uniques, who all came through when it mattered – Sidebum, Gibbs & Heeney (sorry I ever doubted you and swore at you)
    Norm Smith Medallist: Macrae
    Duds: Only three players scored <100, and I don't want to complain as my oppo had them too … (but the real dud for the round imo was the fantasy app, which was f**ked up from lockout Friday night until 4.30 this arvo)

    Anyway, it's been another great year of (fantasy) footy! Congrats and thanks to everyone :)

    Had 15 from Witherden last week and forgot to emergency a player which resulted in an avoidable zero earlier in the year. Super happy with the result. Only won 1/4 leagues though.

    Get Selby a car too!

    To avoid a massive exodus of AFL fantasy players next year, the winners of the game, Selby and James should both get a car. To miss out on first prize because you registered 2 hours before the other winner is a massive injustice.

      It is unjust because the criteria of ‘time of registration’ has nothing to do with coaching performance prowess throughout the season, which is the pool from which all relevant adjudication criteria should soley be drawn.

      The AFL recognised they had an unjust criteria for determining the Bronlow winner in the event of a tie and justly made a change to the criteria with retrospective effwct, allowing all tied players to be recognized for their season excellence. Strong argument that the same should occur here with a tie between multiple coaches.

      So it doesn’t matter what the rule has been in the past, if it is unjust it is unjust, and should be changed with retrospective effect to reflect justice. As mentioned, the AFL provides a precedent recognising and responding to this travesty in relation to tied Bronlows and changed the criteria to ensure that just and relevant criteria alone were determining.

      Great effort to both winning coaches in what has been an extraordinary tussle for the laurel made all the more impressive by the extemely unlikely event of a two-pete. Let’s remember the season for this outstanding achievment and acknowledge it as a rare event in Fantasy history to be long well-remembered, rather than as a season in which the deserving was robbed of a justly earnt honour and the Fantasy community was left with the sour taste of unremedied injustice.

      In no reasonable way is ‘time of registration’ a relevant criteria for determining who we cheer for their mighty efforts when left with two last-coaches-standing with exactly equal mighty efforts.

    Round 23 Scores: 2711 – fantasy PB
    Grand Final Results: W in the league that means most vs 2656
    Norm Smith Medallist: Has to go to Grundy my C.
    Studs: Macrae, Grundy, Laird, Cogs, Danger, Devon, Beams and Sebba on debut
    Duds: Whitfield, McLean, Simmo
    On the Chopping Block: McLean
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Won having traded Titch and using the cash to upgrade Rocky while cancelling out Beams on the other team. Pretty stoked. Also climbed from 36000 last year to top 2500 this year. Next year the car is mine!
