There are only two seasons ... Footy Season and Waiting For Footy Season

How does Footy Rocks work? It is a lot like other dreamteam competitions but each week you pick a team of players IN POSITION. You will need 2 back pockets, a full back, two half backs as so on. No zones or salary caps here. We get the team lists on a Thursday night and then open selections until the first game starts. It's a unique version of dreamteam that has been going for 21 years now.

The best bit? Only your BEST 5 SCORES count. If you miss a week or start late then do not worry. You will be in it right up to the end.

The Footy Rocks top 8

This is the Footy Rocks top 8 for season 2019. The ladder order is based on the best 5 scores made by each player. The Blitz! score is how much you need in the next game to jump into the top 8. If you are already in the 8 then your Blitz! score is how much you need to take top spot.

Fans and media call every AFL player a star or a champion. They are wrong. Jarryd Roughead is what a true champion and genuine star of our game really is."Everyone asks are you angry or are you sad? We've had our careers. I feel more sad for someone like Paddy McCartin going through what he is going through. Now us, as a footy collective, have been robbed of seeing a No.1 draft pick go at it. When you put it into perspective like that, us playing VFL for half a year doesnt really matter."Brilliant yet humble. This is the standard that everybody else should try to match before we pile superlatives on them.
