    Though I’m not playing finals in my League, I do want to check out how my friends’ finals are going.
    But the app won’t load the finals matchups for me. (I haven’t tried with the site yet, but will do)
    Is anyone else having this issue?
    Pretty silly if the app is operating on the premise that we’re no longer interested in our Leagues just because our teams didn’t make finals

      Well, the site will show me “live” matchups, but the teams are not accurate/current (perhaps they’re from last round, I’m not sure).
      I’m disappointed, to be honest. What a cock-up

    Draper with only 42 is a little disappointing. The rest is what it is.

    I wanted to trade Scrimshaw in last week, then Draper was out, but very happy to have brought in Scrimmy this week.
    Cover on every line except Fwds as that was going to involve my VC loophole as needed.
    No joy though with VC loophole on Titch. Here’s looking at you Neale.

      I went Thurlow to Bachar and Fyfe to Worpal…
      That’s one way of plummeting down from about 600th spot…
      Neale is my C, just warning you all…

    Ok look at my match up I have 6 v 3 left and 263 behind. Seems big ask projection has me losing by small amount. None of his 3 are guns (that said look at Cerra). In my 6 I have llyod – Adams – Oliver guns – then Brayshaw hit and miss and Riccardi who relys on goals so not sure and good old Starcevich. I need the 3 guns all to get 90 really. We both have Neale captain v pies. So do I ride it and hope or do I swap Captain to llyod v demons as a POD? Or Whitfield v blues

      Brayshaw or Zac bailey to neale. League matchup has brayshaw too not sure wether to play safe and keep him or risk it and dump him. I’m probably 20 points off the pace at the moment but a few unique guns to come

      With so many players unexpectedly being dropped, rested, injured, is it any wonder?

    Last night officially killed my AFL fantasy team. Before this round I had to get Scrimshaw (brilliant decision – the third best score in my team) to repair a hole in my back line. But that meant my changes were locked in at the first lockout. Then I lose Mills and Withers – 2 donuts. And with help from Dusty and Whitfield, only just better than donuts, I have the brilliant score of 1184 with 4 and the captain to come. A fitting epitaph for my shambolic season. But I’m still alive in my league after finishing top.
