Your AFL Fantasy Sages For The Ages

Playing AFL Fantasy is like trying to get to the top of Hogwarts through those stairs that keep changing direction, with a thousand screaming kids running in all directions.

Eventually you are going to need some guidance from those that live in the castle and thankfully we have been gifted 3 wizards from the Ministry of Madness in Cal, Warnie

Big fan

Really commended you blokes calling out braggarts and sooks every other year I’ve listened. Unfortunately Roy now finds himself in both those categories. Seems a good fella but spare your listeners your navel gazing, bottom lip dragging, deceitful self gratification. Love Calvin though, very genuine and funny. Warnie always helms with a great balance of professionalism and piss takery. Big fan, keep up the content.
