How do you score points?
Each week we award each of the formats highest points scorers with points, !0 points for highest, 9 for second highest, 8 for third highest, 7 for fourth, 6 for fifth, 5 for sixth, 4 for seventh, 3 for eighth, 2 for ninth and 1 point for tenth, so there is 155 points available per week across all three formats.
***To get amongst the big points this week you needed a score of 2664 and Samuel of Black Star’s had the team to do it, our buddy Ben from Fort Bondi got the 9 points and Phoenix took the 8 on offer. wasn’t a lot of movement or action otherwise from the leaders in the SC format. The leader of the group overall was Ashley of Take no Prisoners who finished in 30th spot overall in the most popular format, a great effort Ash. ***
***It was Kingy’s Crew that sank the others this week with a massive 2581 to take the 10 this week with Benjo/s Betrayal getting the 9 on offer. Aussie Floggers took the 8 points by just a a solitary point as they edged out the big teeth of Chompers with a 2570, Matthew of Living the Dream has come home strong with a 6 this week to jump into the Top 50. #likeaboss Frosty moved into 11th spot with his 3 points. The leader of the Real Dream Team group was Rob of Rob’s Squad who held up very well to record a 4th overall in RDT and comes away a little richer for his efforts too, as does Frosty who was one place back in 5th, great work gents on a fantastic year. ***
***You may not have many fans Sam but you got the 10 points in AFL Fantasy this week with your score of 2638. Just da tip got 9 whilst Daniel from the Metallicats was our biggest leaderboard mover this week with a 6 taking him into equal 5th spot in the comp. Demolition Dane was at it again with a 2. Our group leader Simon of No Buddy Way was unable to hunt down that top spot and had to settle for 3rd overall in AFL Fantasy which is a really great achievement without the dollars, well played Simon on your year.***
The Winner – Bakas (Colin)
It’s an honour to take out the prestigious Nobel Koel for 2016 against a lot of very good coaches. I had a decent year in all three formats highlighted with my highest ever finish in AFL Fantasy (55th) which is traditionally my weakest format.
A couple big weeks in rounds 19 and 20 enabled me to take the lead and hang on despite a poor finish to the season.
Just want to say thanks to all the crew at the Coaches Panel for all their efforts put into the weekly podcasts and articles.
Looking forward to defending the title in 2017!
