DT Shiva

The Ultimate Fantasy Football Experience


Welcome to the DT Shiva, where everyone’s a shit-sipping frittata and we celebrate ‘Krampus’ instead of Christmas. This is a league where we play off for the ‘Shiva Bowl’, not the Premiership; need I mention a glorious trophy with ultimate bragging rights?! It is a community where banter is encouraged; involvement is a prerequisite; ‘Shiva Blasts’ are as regular as an AFL controversy; whilst collusion and draft-tampering are sins punishable by death complete and total exclusion.

So to get a sense of what we’re trying to create here. We think it is a prerequisite of sorts for all participants to go and watch the hit US Comedy called ‘The League’. If you are into Fantasy Football in any capacity (which you must be otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this), you will find this stuff absolute GOLD.

Before we get into some of the details of how this thing works, let us tell you how this idea came about. Matty (pictured below) was sifting through the preseason rubble that was the aftermath of his 2012 Dream Team Season and couldn’t help seeing multiple mentions of this thing called the ‘Shiva’. After reading into it (and watching Season 1 of ‘The League’ in a matter of days) he was hooked. Following a few enquiries and brainstorming sessions with Douth (pictured below) and a few other Fantasy Nuts – we combined the previously founded Aussie Shiva (NFL) & Supercoach Shiva (Douths original Shiva comp that started last year) to give birth to the DT Shiva.

We are utilising
Ultimate Footy for our draft style relegation and promotion league, as these guys are the leaders of all things Draft Fantasy Football in Australia. With the registration now open (details below) – it remains to be seen if the hype that has captured the hearts and minds of the Social Networking Universe this preseason will translate into the new Season. We believe that our money is on  the DT Shiva becoming the single biggest collective Fantasy Football league in the world – so jump on board and share the ride!

Now to a bit of a profile on the boys that will make this season possible.
