For those who take it way too seriously

G'day folks, it's that time of year again where the sound of willow smacking leather is cheered on by big crowds.
Yep, Big Bash cricket fantasy is now just around the corner with the first round kicking off on the evening of Tuesday 20th December.
This year we have two fantasy comps for BBL-06 (much like last year where we had the official BBL fantasy comp and the Fox Sports fantasy BBL comp) - however for this, the sixth incarnation of BBL, we see the Fox Sports comp replaced by a Supercoach comp!!!
There are some differences with the 2 competitions, most notably in the make-up of your teams but also in scoring as well as (most importantly) the prizes - these differences can be found by reading up in the help section of the 2 different competitions, however I will just quickly run through some of them below.

Official BBL fantasy
Your squad will comprise 16 players - 5 Batsmen / 5 Bowlers / 1 Wicketkeeper on field and 2 Batsmen / 2 Bowlers / 1 Wicketkeeper on the bench - these 16 players must be accommodated within the $1million salary cap.
This season, the official BBL fantasy comp has done away with the seperate "All-Rounders" line on the field to better reflect the true nature of T20 cricket where All-Rounders are both Batsmen and Bowlers.
You can choose these players as either a Batsman or as a Bowler and use the DPP flexibility to get the best team possible on field each round.
There are 3 trades available during each of the trade periods following each round - but beware, you generally only have until the next afternoon/evening before the next round starts!!!
You are able to make an unlimited number of changes (on initial entry) to your team up until the start of the respective match for each player of the first round of the competition. With the Rolling lockout each round, you can trade and substitute players, and select your Captain/Vice-Captain, throughout each round right up to the start time of their team's...

The San Antonio Spurs made a major statement in their 2016/17 NBA season opener against the Golden State Warriors. Gregg Popovich’s men defeated the Western Conference champions by 29 points at Oracle Arena, proving that the Warriors will not have a simple passage to the NBA Finals.

Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge were at the peak of their powers, with the former notching 35 points in the contest. Without the veteran presence of Tim Duncan following his retirement at the end of last season, the Spurs will be buoyed that their two best players are ready to stand up and fill the void by leading from the front.

San Antonio are backed in the latest NBA betting odds at 4/1 to win the Western Conference, and should they maintain their level of form from their win over Steve Kerr’s side, it would be no surprise to see them competing in the Finals next June.
