  • DL Fantasy - Doha

    Since it is less than a week to go, I thought we should have a thread open.

    I hope they re-open the transfers... I picked one team, but for example I couldn't take Farah, Stowers or Pichardo because they weren't in the available lists....

      Just moving my comment from other thread to this specifically relevant thread.

      Supposedly, according to the DL Fantasy site, the Doha DL is today, yet I do believe the meet is actually not for another 5 days. The event competitor lists are still referring to the events of the last competition from last year. But you are allowed to update your fantasy predictions from those lists of events that are not in Doha this year, and from competitors who are not going to Doha. And so, they sure are real fantasies this time around.

      No wonder TNF worldwide struggles to retain relevance when the competence at IAAF is so minimal. Let's hope that Coe or Bubka can raise standards of administration.

        The reason you couldn't choose the athlete you wanted, and specifically from a list of the athletes who are claimed by Doha to be competing next week, is because the lists they had up were from last year.

        And now the whole thing is locked down for the meet that according to the IAAF DL site took place yesterday. I believe the people who are running the IAAF DL Fantasy web site were previously employed as economists and were managing the Greek economy. The IAAF should be drug testing its own staff for LSD and magic mushrooms

          My predictions are

          Women
          =====
          LJ - Bartoletta
          DIS - Perkovic
          400 - Richards-Ross
          HJ - Gordyeva
          1500 - Hassan
          200 - Felix
          100H - Stowers
          3000SC - Asefa

          Men
          ===
          100 - Gatlin
          3000 - Farah
          SH - Kovacs
          PV - Lavillenie
          400H - Jackson
          JAV - Abdelrahman
          800 - Aman
          TJ - Pichardo

          All I have to do now is choose my 4/5 male/female split with no more than 2 per country
          I will go with Lavillenie for Captain.

          Oh - yes - I forgot. And hope that the twerps at IAAF Fantasy actually open up their Pandora's box so we can all vote

            The powers that be that run the Fantasy site finally realised that it might be a good idea to communicate. A note has just come up advising they are updating the start lists and team selections will be open soon.

                    I changed my team, even if I couldn't choose Stowers in the W100hs, I would have picked her because the MR is not that special.

                        The most difficult aspect of Doha selection is choosing my 2 Americans. Stowers? Felix? Richards-Ross? Bartoletta? Reese? Gatlin? Kovacs? Jackson?

                        For the moment I have gone with Gatlin and Richards-Ross
