    Re: AFL X Teams

    Quite pumped, only cause I've missed the footy!

    WCE squad averages 6 AFL games, Adelaide's isn't much better. Collingwood play them both so should get through to the grand final easily. (They are $1.90 vs Crows and $1.80 vs WCE, crazy.) I think with a 14 man squad though they will struggle in the final.

    Fremantle have the strongest of the three other team's imo, but Port/Cats both have solid enough teams.

    yeah I had Pies, Freo, Port, Gee in that order in terms of strength, Pies with the small squad which possibly suits this format as will have few changes, fitness maybe an issue in GF as you say.

    Freo pretty strong too but probably very weak in one of their games.

    WCE one of the worst looking list of players ever

    Re: AFL X Teams

    Interesting to see the way the different sides are approaching.

    Adelaide and West Coast seem to be using it as an audition for their fringe guys to try and push for the last couple of best 22 spots.

    Collingwood have gone with the 10-25 on their list basically which suggests match fitness.

    Freo are all over the shop, playing Fyfe (seems ****ing stupid to risk an injury prone guy in something this meaningless), Walters and a few other clear best 22 and then some guys that even Freo fans haven't heard of.

    Port seem to have basically picked their fringe guys and the guys who had injury struggles last year, not sure if it's to prove they're fit or what but similar to Fyfe it seems stupid to be risking Gray in this.

    Geelong have a very solid squad, a few of their best and the fringe 22 guys.

    I wont be watching because I'm not supporting this trash but if anyone does have way too much free time and self hatred then do post some match reports.

    Re: AFL X Teams

    Fyfe being named, after already playing the international rules series does suggest he's super fit at the moment and just desperate to play football of any sort to get himself back to his best. If he wasn't already on your fantasy radar (especially SC) then he should be now.

    Seems like I spoke too soon as Fyfe has now been withdrawn from the squad.

    Re: AFL X Teams

    I'm pretty stoked with the squad that we selected. We basically named our 18 worst players not named Mackay. I just hope that we avoid any injuries.

    Also AFLX has essentially nothing to gain if you're an experienced AFL ready body. But if you're a first or second year player with less than 5 games under your belt there could be some benefit purely for playing against other AFL standard bodies.

    Re: AFL X Teams

    I reckon Fyfe was named and would have played if other teams had named anybody of similar calibre. The fact almost all teams have names the bottom 20 on their list (plus or minor a player or two) shows how much weight is being put into this from the teams.

    Small squad though for North, but yeah solid. I actually thought Saints were the best, but I think Hawks are playing their stronger squad in the 2nd match.

    Good point on North v Blues though, I had my rose coloured glasses on but it is a relatively week side for Carlton

    WB team might be the weakest any team is fielding. Only 12 players and only 1 player past 2nd year.
