Last year we dipped out toe into the world of Patreon. We’ve always wanted to create some bonus content as we believe there is a demand for more as the AFL Fantasy community is a massively engaged bunch … and it is that, a community! We live and breathe the game.
We’re into our 18th season producing stuff and last year was super-refreshing for us. Getting together on Sunday nights post-round for Lockout Lift LIVE was a highlight of our week. The new mid-week Pintcast to chew the fat and answer all the pressing (and not so pressing) questions was a welcomed addition over a beer or two. But it was the extra stuff. We got inside the mind of Calvin’s research for his Captains a bit more, there was the Scale of Hardness to help get a nice visual view of things and of course, Roy’s Rollin’ 22 is updated weekly with trade tips.
There’s a lot more. The pre-season Playbook is your handy companion to help you get your team sorted and Jaiden is delivering heaps of stats. We’ve got a heap of pre-season content planned which covers plenty of bases… and there are competitions galore from our open league and some extras along the way.
