DT Shiva 2021 - Open for Business!
Wednesday, 10 February 2021 - 03:12 PM

The DT Shiva is now officially open for season 2021! After the shits how that was 2020, its nice to be able to look forward with optimism at the upcoming season that we will get through it with no where near the issues we faced last year (Byes that you couldn't prepare for etc) that saw us scrap relegation and promotion.

Let it be known before you enter this year though, regardless of what happens throughout the season this year, relegation and promotion will not be affected. It will be happening no matter what transpires. Its only fair for all involved to now expect the unexpected in these crazy times! Last year was a different story. 

For those of you unaware of the DT Shiva, we are Australia's largest relegation and promotion cash league. We utilize the best draft platform in fantasy football (Ultimate Footy) and we have some of the greatest fantasy football minds in our leagues. We even have a podcast run by two of the greatest shitsippers in the league, Damon Adams and Ben McDonald. Check that out at The Shiva Blast

The concept originated 9 years ago and started with 84 participants over 7 leagues. Last year we were up to 28 leagues and over 300 people! The people in this league are referred to by myself as a shivarite, so if your new and reading this, jump on board and come along for the ride and become a Shivarite yourself!! Its easily the best comp being run for draft style fantasy football!

What is Ultimate Footy?

Ultimate Footy is a draft-based fantasy AFL game that gives users full control over their fantasy footy experience. Unlike salary cap competitions, each AFL player can only be owned by one team in each league.

A draft is used to distribute players to teams, which is where our unique live online drafts bring the experience to life. Teams compete week to week until the league premiers are crowned!

Ultimate Footy is the most customizable game in the fantasy football market. At the DT Shiva, we will be running with the same rules as last year. For the uninitiated, that is your AFL fantasy (The old DT) scoring system. You will be required to participate in a live draft at the exact same time as every other Shivarite. Teams consist of 5 Defenders, 7 mids, 1 ruck, 5 forwards and 1 utility. We run 12 team leagues which really challenges the the knowlege of coaches depths. In total you will draft 27 players onto your roster to fill these spots (including emergency's and bench players). That's a total of 324 players in each league drafted, so you really need to have a full understanding of who the players are that wouldn't normally hit your radar in salary cap competitions. This comp seriously is the ULTIMATE in fantasy football competitions!

Draft Day

The live draft will take place for all Shiva leagues on Sunday the7th of March. Locking in 12:30pm Victorian time is likely. We trialled a staggered time frame once due to Fairfax's servers not copping with the traffic (WE BROKE THE INTERNET!), but last year we were assured we wont have that problem and we didnt, so we will all draft at once.

Those of you who may be located in Melbourne, we will be hosting the OFFICIAL DT SHIVA DRAFT PARTY at The Richmond Union Bowls club. Same venue as last year, that im sure for all who attended, absolutely enjoyed! 80's priced beer, plus rolling a few down the greens was a massive hit with all the attendees! In the past it has always been a fun filled day with lots of banter, so if you can make your way to Richmond to be part of it, make sure you bring your lap top of iPad and enjoy the festivities!
