For those who take it way too seriously

The TooSerious tradition that is Rate My Team (RMT) is back in 2019!

A quick refresher on the rules.

1. In order to get feedback on your own team, you must first provide feedback on the teams that have been recently posted. This is the golden rule and is what makes this whole thing work. :)
2. If you just post your team without giving any feedback, your post will be deleted. :mad:
3. Please refrain from commenting on teams that have been posted by others that have not followed the golden rule. :cool:
4. Keep it civil. Constructive criticism is fine. But there is a line and please don't cross it. :eek:
Welcome Everybody to the 2019 Trading Games league!


What's it all about?
Basically every year the community gather together and choose the players picked in a team we all start with. We usually go with a "cookie cutter" team with the most popular selections on every line, as far as practicable. The players in every team in the group start the same before the round 1 lockout. Then, as the year progresses, and trades are made, the challenge becomes finishing on top of the group with the most points overall. That's it; just use your trades and your emergency/captain picks wisely, and turn the team we all start with into a winning team by scoring the most points.


1. EVERYBODY must start with the exact same 30 players. No exceptions.

2. You don't use your main team, we would prefer if you 'invited' your daughter, wife, grandfather, etc. to create a team that you help to manage throughout the year. Don't join this league if you don't want to follow rule 1.

3. Like always, let's have fun and keep positive. Banter is expected and welcomed! Anyway, the whole thing is up in the air for discussion as always. What are your thoughts to make it interesting again this year?

How to Join?

Step 1: Sign up to the Trading Games group

Step 2: Makes sure you have the correct team entered! The correct team is shown here just below.

Step 3: Choose your captain/vice captain and any emergencies. You could get the jump on the rest of the field with some astute choices even with an identical 30-man squad.

Step 4: If you wish, you can rearrange the 30 players to have different players onfield and on the bench before the start of R1. Just don't change the squad of 30.

Step 5: If you wish, you can join the Trading Games League. We...
Please keep the RMT's on the RMT Thread

However this discussion can look at JLT bolters, Round 1 debut and team announcements teams and general Player X vs Player X and team structure type debate and analysis.

I saw this injury list posted on Wednesday last week, which players will now be in line for more opportunity or a more SC friendly role ?

More info to be added throughout the week prior to Round 1
Post all TS league details in this thread
Ok boys and girls, all 3 comps are open and the site is officially open to the new year!!

As always, let me know how it has all gone. I've noticed a couple of bugs that I've squashed so far that have come up cause of the new AFLW stats that we are looking to introduce this year.

(More in that after this weekend :D)

Don't forget to check out the Draft Planner. I fricking love that thing, and really need to find the time to improve on it- cause I always feel that it has so much more potential!!

Hope you've all had a great summer - let the fantasy planning begin!!

(Also, looking forward to watching all my smokies get outed in the first round of the Nab. Hopefully after the ORFFL draft :p)
We've all played each other team once each now this season. Now we're on the home stretch with 5 weeks to go before our playoffs.

Have a look over the break for a basic run down of the season so far for each league.....
The 2019 AFLW regular season is set to commence on 2nd February and concludes in Mid March.

During 2018 we have had an AFLW discussion thread and eventually decided to hold an AFLW all stars match with teams chosen by @Bandit, @That KI Guy, @Len, @dmandrews, @anthak and yours truly.

The natural progression is to establish one or more AFLW fantasy football leagues in 2019 with the considerable bonus of nil overlap with the 2019 seasons for AFL Supercoach and other annual fantasy AFL comps.

I have discussed with @walesy the mechanics of getting and support as well as potentially having match scoring linked to weekly website uploads rather than manual spreadsheet based alternatives (either in 2019 or future years).

Please note that has been set up as a separate thread to look at some of the key fixture, league format decisions and scoring system deliberations that need to be made in the next 4-6 weeks so that this thread can remain uncluttered.

For those of you who missed out this season please let us know now or later on if you are interested in joining up in 2020.
For random musings, rumours, opinions...all interspersed with occasional facts.
We've now played each of the other teams in our own section, and now we'll be moving onto the teams in the other section.

Here is a bit of a review of the season thus far:
With the AFL player trading period now done and dusted the main point of offseason excitement will be the fixture in late October and AFL draft on 22 and 23 November

(Speaking of trades here is the take)

The following is the 2018 AFL Draft Order as at 17/10 10pm - noting pick trades are still possible to 2pm Friday 16th November (and then during the 2 nights of the draft itself)
