    Redemption for a horror month. Might of scraped into Grand final But I’ve fired the big missiles of Lewis and sidebottom and Mitchell to start the Grand Final.

    Love Lewis’ work. Lifted with the big C on him. Sidey what a gun. If only all my trades tonned up on debut this year! Would be home and hosed if JPK and Greenwood weren’t absolute pussies but I’m playing 2 down :(

    All down to crossing the fingers and hoping Rocky has a sub-100 game tomorrow!

    What a season it’s been. If you’ve won the comp this year, I am literally out of words for you mate, except enjoy the cash! Roy, Warnie and Calvin: Boys my interest in this game would be 400% lower if it wasn’t for you blokes. You are legends.

    Writing this now cos I feel that Sunday night I’ll probably be too depressed to look back on the round or season.

    Player of the season: Rockliff
    Feel Good Hold of the Season: Dusty
    Season Rollercoaster: Zorko

    Here’s to 2015 boys!

    Player of the season: Rocky
    Best start and hold : Luke Parker
    Rollercoaster has to be: Nroo
    Of my original 22 at seasons start
    I’d like to thank Parker, Bartel , Simpson, swallow, Jacobs, Cotchin and Pendlebury , Dusty and Nroo for the ride. There from day1. Unfortunately I tumbled from 200 overall to 800 over the last 4 weeks due to some serious carnage but that’s the game and look forward to next year.

    Anymore talk of late outs? Where do I get the latest gossip on possible outs?

  5. gambler


    August 30, 2014 at 1:22 pm

    Went out and got smashed last night… saw my new boy Lewis tearing it up for my granny and thought you beauty what a trade! Woke up today, checked the H2H… ofcourse my opponent traded him in. He also got Malsexy to match me too!

    Gonna come right down to the wire (im on the left)

    Ellis v Cotchin
    Jelwood v Goodard
    Duncan v Zaharakis
    Hanley v Bartel
    Wright v Kelly
    Jacobs v Franklin
    Crouch v Greene

    I backed in Wright against Melbourne to beat Kelly. Jelwood + Duncan at skilled against Brisbane should smash it, same with Jacobs + Crouch playing for their lives against St Kilda. However im expecting 4 out of his 7 to smash it too…. Zaha, Franklin, Bartel and Greene.

    Who do you think has it? I think its just gonna come down to whos guns fire the biggest shots!

    Buddy out. FMDT. bye bye GF

  7. Ross

    August 30, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    Seriously the fantasy finals need to start 2 weeks earlier. I had Ward,Beams,Harvey,JPK and McGlynn out from last week and I could have covered that with trades,just. Then Hodge and Greenwood are “injured” and now Buddy I give up. No way could I cover all of them.

    • Ross

      August 30, 2014 at 7:45 pm

      And now Rockliff and Zorko.

  8. ashwinr

    August 30, 2014 at 5:41 pm

    wtf no Buddy?!? kersten and blaine johnson were my reserves. fk really don’t need a donut in the Grand Final

  9. james

    August 30, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    Getting a bit excited in the big GF matchup until Ricky Petterd decided to turn in HIS WORST PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR. Unbelievable. Then Zorko decides to cut his season short… the guy’s probably already in Vegas.

    Had 2 out and was still sitting pretty with Lewis (C) last night but now absolutely no chance.

    Ah well, what a year.

  10. deckcrow

    August 30, 2014 at 6:37 pm

    zorko where did that come from – that typifies the year, he has been hard to have

    rocky out and dal santo sub

    what the

  12. buckets

    August 30, 2014 at 7:34 pm

    don’t believe this

    Buddy out. Rocky out. O’Brien MID E starts as sub. NDS sub

    No words for the last three weeks.

    mad Monday starts now for me

    • buckets

      August 30, 2014 at 7:36 pm

      oh and bye bye top 5000.

      rant over

      • leetrevor81

        August 30, 2014 at 8:05 pm

        O’Brien on 30 before with time left in the 1st quarter, maybe your luck is turning around :)

        • buckets

          August 30, 2014 at 9:02 pm

          Yeah. Swear I read he was sub. Opponent has the vc on jelwood… Mine is on Greene

          • leetrevor81

            August 30, 2014 at 10:28 pm

            On fanfooty he had the green vest near his name, then it appeared he came on as a concussion sub, then the green vest was next to golby…so wasn’t just you

          • Henry

            August 30, 2014 at 11:49 pm

            They changed the sub when Rocky & Zorko dropped out. Some sites were slow to pick it up.

  13. Jordan

    August 30, 2014 at 7:42 pm

    Thanks to the last 2 weeks for likely destroying my top 1000 ranking… Puts a downer on a great season

  14. DaTBird187

    August 30, 2014 at 8:13 pm

    Has anyone ever seen anything like it. With some ridiculous luck I somehow managed to get 22 players on the park this week. Now Rocky and Dal Santo have cooked me.

    I have had Fyfe, Beams, Harvey, Heppell, Barlow, Goldstein, Kennedy completely F**k my season over the last two weeks. Such a shame, I was 420 two weeks ago. Now I’ll be lucky to scrape top 1000.


  15. The General

    August 30, 2014 at 8:15 pm

    Zac O’Brien on my mid bench, but not emergency. Instead, Zorko covering Rocky!
    Oh well nothing I can do about it, just hope I stay inside the top 100

  16. Dave

    August 30, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    Is it normal to no longer be able to see other teams in my league? Is that a grand final thing?
    I don’t even see the team names let alone the actual team that I’m playing against.

    • John

      August 30, 2014 at 8:33 pm

      Yeah its becuase Fantasy is absolute shit… Walk with your feet next year and go RDT

  17. Peter

    August 30, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    OH YEAH . Lewis was my VC

  18. Peter

    August 30, 2014 at 9:01 pm

    Big grand final. Horror 4 weeks and scrape into GF. Rocky out but that’s okay with VC lewis covering , I’ve now blown away my opponent with big scores and him having the VC on Heppell. Bout time luck turned my way. Romping into a huge GF win

  19. Peter

    August 30, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    I actually think dal Santo was a blessing as a sub for those who own. As he beat his 4 week average tonight lol.

  20. Peter

    August 30, 2014 at 10:20 pm

    Happy with Sub Riley’s 61 as cover for rocky.

  21. Lachlan

    August 30, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    On 1744 with 5 to go. Including a donut as I had Murphy and Rockliff late outs. Vice Captain Jelwood was good but could have gone a lot better as he had a quiet final quarter. Also Crisp was poor cover with his worst score of the year (56).

  22. Lewie-14

    August 30, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    83 from Ben Brown as cover for Buddy, can’t complain.
    56 from Crisp for Rocky
    Still gonna come down to the wire but i’ve got 1 extra playing player and had Lewis as VC to his Sloan

  23. Lan T

    August 31, 2014 at 4:00 am

    What freakin carnage. My GF has come down to-

    Jaensch vs Swallow
    Macrae vs Dangerfield
    Greene vs McGovern
    N.Roo vs 67 points

    I should win it from here. I gotta say it was a bit of a fluke for me, as he copped a donut thanks to Buddy + Zorko donuts. Both of us have Priddis as VC, I have Crisp as mid E, he has Langford as mid E.

    Players of the season- Rockliff of course, Luke Parker, Macrae, Stef Martin.
    Best move of the season- I think mid-priced madness was the right strategy to begin with.
    Worst move of the season- Ignoring JPK all year (after being burnt by him last year), then finally trade him for his injury 16. If I had traded Priddis instead of him, I would have the money to get Jordan Lewis. Oh well.

  24. Jess

    August 31, 2014 at 7:24 am

    Do the emergency scores get added at the end of the relevant game or at the end of the round?

    • Henry

      August 31, 2014 at 8:22 am

      I ran my scores thru my calculator and it seems that in Fantasy emergency scores get added at the end of the round but, inconsistently, the VC scores (if, like me, you had the C on Rocky) are already added. In Supercoach everything is added straight away, I think.

      • Jess

        August 31, 2014 at 9:24 am

        Cheers Henry. Yeah SuperCoach adds them straight away. I did a calculation on my score and it seems the VC (Lewis) has been added.

  25. Jess

    August 31, 2014 at 7:32 am

    I am 359 points in front and final match ups are:

    Me: Danger, Sloane, Greene
    Opp: Swallow, B Smith, D Smith, Macrae, McGovern (emerg for Buddy)

    I had Lewis as VC and my opponent has Priddis. I copped a donut with Buddy and Zorko out.

    Do you think I’ll hold on for the win?

  26. Lukey85

    August 31, 2014 at 9:20 am

    Had Cotchin as emergency for Rockliff. 71 at half time…Should have used Zac O’Brien!

    • Jess

      August 31, 2014 at 9:45 am

      Yeah Cotch was looking good at half time – was expecting around a 110 to 120 from him!

  27. james

    August 31, 2014 at 9:49 am

    cant believe this 2 weeks ago in top 200 now im outside top 2000!

  28. Peter

    August 31, 2014 at 10:42 am

    1778 with 6 to go. Rockliff out. Riley covered. I’m 135 up in my grand final and I’ve got 2 players on him. I destroyed him. My 1 week cash grab player Butler has thru carnage been forced to play out the last 3 weeks. I’ve been decimated by injury / late outs and injury enforced scores over the past month. But at least will end in good fashion compared to most. Hope to slide back into the top 500 by rounds end. Got Swallow, Butler, Nroo, Jacobs, danger , dalhause left. I traded in dalhause this week as cheap forward option who can go big to allow me to trade JPK to lewis.

  29. Jess

    August 31, 2014 at 11:03 am

    1795 with Sloane, Danger, Jacobs, Priddis and Greene to go. Somehow have managed to reach 58th overall. Just hope there is no more carnage or I will lose my GF.

  30. gambler


    August 31, 2014 at 11:31 am

    League admin is already counting out my cash as ive smoked my Grand final :D Uniques all did the job, and have Lewis 149 VC!

    Jelwood 139 v Goddard 79
    Ellis 93 v Cotchin 86
    Duncan 124 v Franklin (E score 68)
    Hanley 95 v Kelly 86
    Jacobs v Bartel 114
    Crouch v Greene

    Lewis VC v Priddis VC
    Mundy (E) 99 vs Lloyd (E) 68

    For me to loose Priddis needs to go 150+ then Green 200+ and Crouch + Jacobs less than 100. HA!

    Party time tonight! thanks for all the advise through the year lads.

  31. Jess

    August 31, 2014 at 11:47 am

    @ Peter and Gambler – congrats guys! My match is going to be close and no idea if I’m going to hold onto my lead.

    • gambler


      August 31, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      Good luck Jess!

      Dang I just realized i’m 1921 from 16 including Mundy’s E score… so caught up in the H2H i completely ignored the rest of my team lol.

      Sneaky shot at the weekly? Have Priddy, Danger, Jacobs, Crouch, Mummy and Macrae to come… looking at 2550+

      • Jess

        August 31, 2014 at 1:26 pm

        Geez you will kill it this week! Some good players left – I reckon (hoping!) the Crows boys will score well.

  32. Peter

    August 31, 2014 at 1:12 pm

    Cheers jess good luck mate Hope u get in :). The awesome thing about my GF win is in the last round of league we clashed to decide the minor premier , I lost by 44 due Sam Mitchell late withdrawal (he didn’t have him) and a 2 injury affected scores. He bragged about being minor premier, went on to say he way to good etc…, I was then ultra lucky to get into the GF so bad was my carnage , last week I had JPK, heppel, Harvey and Dustin martin in my team. I traded out Barlow and beams. I went around with 2 donuts and won by 11 points due to Nroo, parker and mcviegh saving me. Now He has a host of carnage and late withdrawls and collapses, blames “bad luck” well now its my turn as the tables have turned lol

    • Jess

      August 31, 2014 at 1:25 pm

      Bit of karma maybe?!!!

  33. Stange

    August 31, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    “Dear fan hub,
    My Elite team players are showing the wrong scores.

    E.g., Sefan Martin scored 124, not the 98 that is shown. Ditto for Luke Parker, Malceski, and other players.

    Why is this happening for the crucial final? I’m currently tracking to “lose” when I should be winning comfortably.”
