    Slater has been in my VSDT team since day 1, but it's a big risk to run with him and then wait until Monday night to find out whether or not he's playing.

    Does anyone else have Slater and what are their thoughts?


    I did but decided to flick him for that very reason and I didn't want to be left relying on an AE after the very first round. I was also worried Slater would take a few weeks to find his grove

    Out of interest - have you changed any of your teams selections based on who the other guys in your league have picked?

    Have any of the other guys - if so who have they traded out/in?

    I don't think anyone has changed their teams - we all cleared them once word spread about the glitch/flaw/f-up, and have said that we should all try and keep to the same teams and gameplan we had before.

    I've emailed the developers to ask what the hell they're doing. Not expecting any contrition.

    Pretty sure you haven't read my post correctly, any team league that starts today (I. E in "a few hours") I have NOT left. For exactly the reason you are talking about.
    Scoring starts from TODAY even if h2h matchups don't. It's a shit act to bail without speaking to commissioners first. EOS

    Here's one for Random.

    Copied from the Tugers forum, I can not vouch for its accuracy

    Tigers win percentage over the last 2 years with certain players missing

    Wins WITHOUT certain players:
    5/16 without Tedesco (31.25%)
    0/4 without Brooks (0.00%)
    1/7 without Woods (14.29%)
    2/11 without Galloway (18.18%)
    2/13 without Farah (15.38%)
    2/14 without Simona (14.29%)

    Simona one of the most vital players for the Wests Tigers

    this was happening to me as well, force close the app and it seemed to work for a bit. I don't trust the app at all. Can't even turn off push notifications

    I checked a few out my mates teams out, just out of interest but it doesn't really change anything, I know my strategy, so I'm not going to let anyone else's strategy dictate who I select. Plus Lone Scout runs through all the cash cow's in his articles, so it's not like they're a secret. But yeah I can see how it's a little annoying.

    THANK YOU!

    Simona is by far the best and most competent CTR in the game. The guy is a beast and with a chilled pre-season he will show that this year.

    also re Green in the 2nd row, on DT:

    "Barrett said either Halauafu Lavaka, Fabian Goodall would then move onto Trbojevic’s wing."

    The stupid thing is, it completely contradicts the fact when you enter your league fixtures page, you can't view the opposition team.

    EDIT: Also can we get the possible number of quoted replies increased to two? With it set to just one it can be kind of confusing.

    Users are not forced to upload questions or team lists on fantasy pulse

    Missing the point that users aren't consenting to the world being able to see their team.

    Have sent Chris Kennedy a tweet with all his PODs in - will see if that has any influence!
