AAMI Fantasy wrap – Ep. 493

PODCAST: Roy, Calvin and Warnie chat through all nine games of the AAMI Community Series.

Nine games of the AAMI Community Series are in the can and while we have quite a few answers … there are still plenty of questions as we approach the last week before lockout. We run through who stood out (and who didn’t) from the dress rehearsal before the 2022 season commences! Let’s do this!

    Thoughts on nick Blakey ?

    • BzG

      March 8, 2022 at 4:58 pm

      Depends who you are comparing him with.

      • Nathan Ablett

        March 10, 2022 at 12:47 am

        just as an option not comparing him with anyone

  2. Kurt

    March 8, 2022 at 12:36 pm

    Pick one:
    1. Jelly and Rowell
    2. Serong and Cripps?
    Tough one but I like the first atm

    • BzG

      March 8, 2022 at 4:57 pm

      I had a similar dilemma, but changed my structure to accommodate 3 of the 4 I wanted. Drop the guy you least want, see how you go fitting in the other 3, eg. Jelly, Cripps & Rowell (dropping Serong)

        March 8, 2022 at 7:48 pm

        But I would want Crips as well

    all preseason my m1,m2 has been Steele and titch, but after preseason have been having thoughts of going Touk and Macrae. Thoughts?

    • cody

      can also go crouch down to Rowell then go hollands to Rachele and greg clark to ward, which atm seems to be the smarter play

      • Euman

        March 8, 2022 at 2:28 pm

        Yes as hollands and Clark will be a no show

    Guys, epic Pod for 1 reason more than any… the eyeball test. Many of us can’t watch without internet the past week (floods) and your comment re Rowell not wearing shoulder strapping was absolute GOLD. Thx heaps.

    im a source on naish for west coast, he flew in on tuesday last week i was at the training ground when he arrived ad intriduced himself to one of the coaches

    Who are the best rookie defenders, I’m still not sold on Sicily and need some coin. Already have De koning

  7. Jacko

    March 8, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Serong or Rowell??

    • Kurt

      March 9, 2022 at 9:53 am

      Depends. Serong will probably average more (but you never know) but Rowell is a better value pick

  8. Paddy

    March 8, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    1) McInerney and Rowell
    Serong and Milera

    • Kurt

      March 9, 2022 at 9:55 am

      No Milera round 1 I don’t think so probably 1. I’m trying to fit in Serong myself though

  9. Jacko

    March 8, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    McInerney or Hewett??

    • Kurt

      March 9, 2022 at 9:52 am

      Both for me. I Probably lean to Hewett but there isn’t much in the way of D3-5s unless you have 3 or more premo defenders

    league code for classic: 3NNVEUST

    looking for good players always a very competetive season in our comp

  11. Kurt

    March 9, 2022 at 9:48 am

    Crouch, Cripps or Serong. Pick 1. And reasons would be good too

    • Don Johnson

      March 12, 2022 at 11:59 am

      Cripps is too cheap too miss

  12. Fred Flinstone

    Rowell is Mickey Mouse and won’t get big points
