John Kingsmill’s Footy Diary


Fantasy Footy

It’s been one of those weekends when most of
my high performers agreed to abandon the cause:
Matt Suckling – five kicks, four handballs and
two tackles; Matthew Kreuzer – two kicks,

four handballs and no marks; Jack Darling –
five kicks, no handballs or tackles and no marks;
Patrick Dangerfield – two miserable points;
David Mackay – one solitary tackle.

I want more, please. I spend too much time
juggling my selections, trawling through
the stats, weighing the last three- and five-week
averages to present a decent team on the field

each week to cop this rubbish. If you don’t
want to play this week, put your hand up.
Tell your coach that you need a week off.
We won’t hate you. We’ll give you a break.

Two weeks later, we’ll expect you
to blast our stats out of the water.
