    I was probably only going to play real dream team anyway. This seals the deal.

  6. Nooie

    January 24, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    No schools comp. Very disappointing.
    Prizes aren’t spectacular either
    Bring back the T button the bin is just rubbish (boom tish)
    Leagues don’t look great first impression, but will look more detail in it closer to round one.
    Don’t like the bar up the top, liked it at the side.
    Captain and Vice-Captain color doesn’t really stand out.
    The shield! Bring back the personalised shields, the guernsey is just crap.
    On a positive, the new body shot makes it easier to identify players.

    Overall, quite disappointing.

    • Jarrad

      January 24, 2014 at 9:11 pm

      Let me get this straight. You wouldnt like the 25k if you won? Thats what i just read there, you would be all like “that money is shit, i dont want it”.

      Id rather the 25k prize pool for that and spreading it out over the other things, lets not put all our eggs in the one basket.

      The Real DT is doing the same thing, they are paying the top 10 teams, seems fair to me.

      • IanB

        January 24, 2014 at 10:07 pm

        I think the prize money is pretty safe from me no matter how big it is If I finished in h top 1000 I’d be thrilled let alone the top 10

  7. Reprobates

    • IanB

      January 24, 2014 at 10:04 pm

      Seems they won’t tell us. Seems that “we weren’t told what last year, so we won’t be told this year either”. Perhaps we’ve never been directly told but, nevertheless, the previous model has been virtually in the public domain for yonks. If we want to know the new formulae, we’ll just have to work I out.

      Jack Martin 270K

      What the…


      • DoubleA

        January 26, 2014 at 7:38 am

        No kidding! Suddenly one J Martin is no walk up start in my team. Would have to pump out near O’Meara numbers to be worth the bother and despite all the hype, I just can’t see him do that until he puts some more muscle on. I’ll watch him closely over pre-season, but he’d have to do something pretty special at this stage.

    What a cluster f**k theyve created…

    Its been a good run, but im off to other FF comps now.

    January 25, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Chatting with a couple of mates, deciding dt or fantasy… we have chosen dt for our main league. An the rest of the boys agreee. I organise another league an cant be arsed with running 2 teams so will run that as dt too. Another mate runs 2 seperate leagues… for work an another group of blokes. He cant be bothered with 2 different teams… so both will be dt leagues. Straight up there are 4 leagues of 18 ppl in each that wont be exposed to afl fantasy or the advertising or signing upto assistant coach, that generates their revenue. Spending too much time changing rules to keep everyone happy, yet in the mean time have gone too far and changed the game too much! Thats just from 3 blokes… id hate to image how many other senarios are the exact same situation.

    • Brett

      January 25, 2014 at 12:43 am

      yep AFL Fantasy will likely have less than 200,000 teams this year. Ruining it for hardcore dreamteamers. I found it very easy to pick a team in 10 minutes with the $10 million salary cap. I have 100K left with 15 players 400K+, 4 players between 300-400K, big 211 in the ruck and 10 players priced under 180K. You can see with the 2 trades per week, unlimited trades between rounds 1 and 2, they are catering for the casual DT’ers that make up probably 95% of all teams. . I guess from a commercial point of view it makes sense, you want the casual player for the whole year, not just for 10 or 12 rounds to maximise the corporate dollar spend. For a challenge we know where to go for real DT. I guess 5% of serious DT’ers disappearing won’t hurt the official AFL Fantasy game that much

    • IanB

      January 25, 2014 at 8:34 am

      I think the further fragmentation of games is a big downer and could well reduce the overall popularity of aussie rules fantasy leagues. As to which game my circle of players adopts for leagues, we will wait and see how the games actually pan out. Surely what we see in this AFL game is little more than a team picker and the serious site is still coming.

  17. Brett

    January 25, 2014 at 12:20 am

    i’m still trying to work out how to join my league i created. I have picked a full team and saved it. Any tips???

  18. Brett

    January 25, 2014 at 12:24 am

    i worked it out, if you create a league, have a complete team first

  19. Michael

    January 25, 2014 at 1:08 am

    so let me get this straight….our round 1 score doesn’t count towards out overall ranking?

    • IanB

      January 25, 2014 at 8:25 am

      I think it does count for the “overalls” but you get the chance to completely recasting your team before leagues start.

  20. Bomberbaz

    January 25, 2014 at 8:26 am

    God it’s slow. I’m not even sure if my team was saved last night because it took so long that I just went to bed. It’s a shame I’ve registered because they’ll probably add me to the number of players but there’s no way I’m supporting this crap. Real and supercoach for me. And how tight are the prizes? They can shove their afl tickets up their asses. You’d think they’d at least match what was on offer last year. Some of the players don’t even have photos. Very unimpressed with the site. I can’t get into the app at all. What a disaster. This has turned me right off and I will not be back. Don’t have time for 2 dream teams and so Real DT it is for me. Absolute garbage this fantasy crap. I’ll be telling all my mates not to bother and just go straight to Real DT.

  22. IanB

  23. The Rogue Nutter

    January 25, 2014 at 11:25 am

    I have just emailed the AFL Fantasy and have suggested the following.
    The prizes this year are crap other competitions are offering more cash prizes. I would suggest if you want to remain the No.1 AFL fantasy competition to improve them 5 to 10 times more. Offer a car, a few years ago you had a killer Toyota 4WD.

    • The Rogue Nutter

      January 25, 2014 at 11:57 am

      This was what Centrebet were offering last year.

            Here is what the new The Real Dreamteam are offering.

            The REAL AFL Dream Team means REAL prizes!

            It may not be delivered in gold bars but there’s $50,000 on the line for the end of season victors in Dream Team AFL this year!

            The Overall Champ takes home $40,000!!!

            2nd place gets $2,000 and 3rd to 10th grab a cool $1,000 each. Plus each weekly winner gets $500!

            Over the weekend we’ll release the prize for the Eliminator Champ and the best scoring DT League also gets some serious cash!

            January 25, 2014 at 12:27 pm

            It was a joke Warnie. They really have to improve the prizes considering what the others are offering.

          • Aidan

            January 25, 2014 at 12:42 pm

            Mate, stop complaining, the chances of you winning are extremely remote, and should you win, you won’t be complaining about pocketing 40k. However, should you win and not want the prize because it’s not good enough for you, I’d happily accept it on your behalf

          • Warnie


            January 25, 2014 at 12:43 pm

            Totally get that! But there is $75K worth of prizes… just spread differently. The Match Day component is a big part. Over $30K in that. AFL are on the backfoot for salary cap games, but for these quick hit games, they can own that space.

          • The Rogue Nutter

            January 25, 2014 at 1:11 pm

            It’s not that I will win. It’s just the person who does win should get decent prize for winning the entire competition. The other sites are offering more and some prizes are from the AFL and the cost them isn’t very much. Plus the AFL make money from AFL Fantasy by having assistant coach and most coaches have that. So surely they can front up with better prizes.

          • speculator

            January 25, 2014 at 1:53 pm

            Who cares about that match day crap? $25k for the main prize is a joke. Its embarrassing. There has never been a major prize that small in super coach or DT in all the years I’ve been playing. What were they thinking?

          • Sphincter

            January 25, 2014 at 3:17 pm

            I played the virtualsports epl dt about 5 years ago and came 16th. The main prize was a wii for winning the comp so anything is an upgrade on that for me!

          • Warnie


            January 25, 2014 at 3:20 pm

            The match day style stuff is great fun and fantastic for casual users. Maybe more people will have a crack at stuff like that and then be more keen for games like ‘classic’. As I said in a previous post, whether you agree with it or not, AFL are having a crack with that game – SC has smashed them with their salary cap game. I’m a hardcore and traditional fantasy coach, and I understand disappointment… but have a look and think about what they’re doing. $75K worth of prizes across their ‘fantasy stable’ is up there with all fantasy games on the market.

          • Warnie


            January 25, 2014 at 3:22 pm

            I also think its amusing that people complain about the prizes. The odds of these jokers or myself winning are so slim it doesnt bare any consideration whatsoever. For a game thats free, that you dont have to PLAY winning ANYTHING is a bonus. If they fronted up with a f**king carwash as the first prize be happy.

  24. Grant

    January 25, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    Can someone please explain to me how leagues work this year? Do we have to join a league or is it automatic like last year. AFL Fantasy so far is just a massive ‘f’ up this year. Might even go to SC.

  25. g73scratch

    January 25, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    i used to play in a league every yr with the same blokes ,and we would talk each yr through the old coaches box but that’s gone with this new shambles and new passwords etc……but whatever im over it like everyone else and will communicate with everyone on facebook to work out what were doing

    didn’t think the realdreamteam would take over or catch up to fantasy so fast but they will have more players by the time the season starts…and why not its the original game we luv after all…

    what were the fantasy people on about when they said under features!! ..better logos/eblems ?? is there any logos at all or do we a jumper of the team we support…that’s gonna be a joke ,look stupid, and no individuality…im a wafl supporter I follow both wa sides since joing the afl

    but im not some massive eagles fan why is that my ‘logo’ they seriously gotta come up with some beter options that that its gonna look dead set stupid

    the biggest question out of all this mess im left with is WHEN DOES THE REAL DREAMTEAM OPEN ??
    wich shouldn’t be ,we should be happy about both opening not left with questions and dissapoinment
    the worst move of all is gonna be facebook ,the rdt is gonna kill it by word of mouth sooner than the afl thought

    atleast answer some of the questions people are asking…and give logo options!! not afl jumpers!!

            ill never complain about the prizes ,I agree most of us have little chance of winning,,if I jag a weekly prize id be happy..i play for the fun and against mates……I think its a wicked thing to spread the prizes around instead of one person winning most of it ,so I think that’s a great idea….
            im not good on computers at the best of times so gambling,googling,dreamteam is about it for me…I just used to make the logo at the start of each yr and sometimes chance my team name…….and I couldn’t/cant see where ya can do that ,and didn’t know if that was gone now or vs have got it or what …just like staring filling ya team from the bk line ,ya usually make ya shield first….ill try but if theres not a place to do it I hope they put one in coz I dunno how to upload stuff….Ill play about 5 diff fantasy games and I like having limited trades on one and not on this one…..I was just like everyone and lost a bit yesterday with passwords etc

            when ya know ya password and email is right but its saying its not it gets a bit old after hours of rying to get in

            im a traditionalist but like the draft games and this one that moves the goal posts ,,but don’t like the club jumper as a logo that’s all :)

    • Warnie


      January 25, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      I can see people are upset and disappointed… I would have loved the launch to be much smoother. It deserves better. Now it’s working properly, the product is pretty good. Great features and functions. Real DT will appeal to the purists; the guys who have been playing this game for years. There’s still 6 weeks until the season starts… plenty of time for the dust to settle. Hopefully the Classic game is something you’ll play too, along with Elite and Match Day.

      • Jarrad

        January 25, 2014 at 4:34 pm

        Its ok we all know they will still create a team and trade there asses off. They just may not tell their mates about it. Why is it one or the other? Im confused, why not both? All up i will be in about 5-7 fantasy comps this year, each one different on their own way. If you consider yourself a fantasy guru you would change and adapt to each format.

  27. themessyman

    January 25, 2014 at 11:38 pm

    Reading all these comments. It laughable the reasons people don’t like the new AFL “classic”. It was only a few years ago we had two comps to choose from which where extremely similar.
    For me I’m enjoying the change of scenery of the fantasy football.
    Also it’s great to see the DT talk boys get reward for there passion for the fantasy football. Keep it up fellas

    Format/Layout seems very simple this year, Not to mention they have had plenty of time to get it working yet I try to use some of the features that then say “Coming Soon” Along with half my team have no pictures which makes it look like something you have thrown together overnight…

      If you had week-by-week figures then if you put them against last year’s fixture you could work it out but, for fantasy football purposes, does it help much? If you are looking for things like how one team playing another causes lower points for one them, I think that there’s a selection in the new prospectus that looks at such things. Perhaps you could drop Champion Data a line and see if they can help you.
