The Fantasy King: Market Movers

By Mick 'the King' Adams With just about a third of the season in the books the Supercoach top 20 makes for an interesting read. All the usual suspects are represented as expected, with some on the rise, like Robbie Farah (1st), and Billy Slater(8th); and some on the decline- Gallen (13th), Parker (10th), Fensom […]

The Fantasy King: Round 7 Observations

  By Mick 'the King' Adams Where next for Ben Barba? Barba owners might have taken some solace in the fact that he posted his second Supercoach half century for the season with an even 50 against the Sharks, however the reality is he’s a long way from back. Averaging a paltry 39.5, placing him […]

Sugar Mama (Part 2): Into the Poker Underground

  By 'Proposition' Nate I’m still rubbing the sleep out of my eyes in the cab over to Club Amore. The place is located on a busy arterial road in Mosman, wedged between shopfronts and up a set of stairs like a Club X, and marked only by a discreet sign that states “Members Only”. […]

Sugar Mama: Chasing the Big Poker Score

By ‘Proposition’ Nate Taleb Over the Christmas break in 2011 my status as a poker player was hard to pin down.

Thurston v Cronk: A Fantasy King Investigation

By Mick Adams Let’s talk about Cooper Cronk.
