    I dunno, Honeybadger (Zazu Knights) is my captain pick

    @RandomSil wrote:Also got big wraps on Goodnight Kiwi had a poor year last year but in 2018 was easily a Top 16 pick and an out and out gun. Hoping a solid return to form for the young bloke.

    I like the idea of taking the smoky like Rabbits21 in League 10 over some big names like Arsen, Sets or Speedball Deluxe. The bloke has been training the house down this year, putting in a lot of extra work. I swear his posting the most revised teams behind Bethany, so you know he is going to start hard and fast. I also think L3 and L6 will present big headaches.

    Oh bless you. Yeah 42nd or so I believe in 2018. Got stung like many others with DEdwards last year and hanging on too long then the captaining of Fifita and Bateman in back to back weeks for their injury affected scores. Pumped for this season to start. I won't let you down Random!

    So once you pick your fantasy fantasy team, there are no changes right? Otherwise you'd just wait till the end then trade in the best guys. Assuming it's not a draft and we can have the same coaches in our team, are we good to start picking?

    There might be a few coaches switching leagues today as we sort out some late entries and non-starters, so you are good to go, but maybe keep an eye on league changes

    Ok Cheers, I'll start by deciding on my approach and go from there i guess.

    Tossing up between three themes:
    Team Taste - Members who i think have good taste and will therefore carry that forward to fantasy selections. Generally speaking a raiders avatar will be looked favorably upon.
    Team Paperweights - Welshy, SI, Random etc. Don't think the name needs much explanation.
    Team HooDarFark - Only members I haven't spoken to or seen on here personally. The ultimate smokies.

    Just to update, after some behind-the-scenes administration Honey Badger has been promoted to League 1 and luckynumber8 has taken his spot in League 3.

    Yep this would be ideal. To summarise:

    Honey Badger to L1
    Churg to L4
    Luckynumber8 to L3
    Honeysett to L9
    KiwiWarriors to L12 in place of Individual who didn't join his leagues.

    Yes, I will update the first page and post an update here as well. I'll also PM anyone who has selected fanatics in a league for which they are now ineligible.

    If anyone has sent in an entry and want's to make wholesale changes to their side based on these changes, you can submit a new entry.

    Be mindful that there are still a few people who haven't entered their leagues so there could still be some more changes

    Do we have to indicate our interest in playing or just PM you with our selections?
    This looks like a great idea.
    Would be interesting to see a breakdown of selections.

    This competition needs a proper name, so I asked for suggestions and I got a few suggestions. If you like any of the following or have a suggestion of your own then have your say


    Fantasy Fantasy
    FF Navel Gazing
    Fanatic Fantasy Pick'em
    Mighty Fishes Cup  (this would involve the lowest finisher wearing that Unicorn avatar for a month after MF has finished wearing it)
    Fantasy Inception Tipping

      Current date/time is Tue Nov 24, 2020 8:43 pm
