Mark is back from holidays but his fantasy team is still on a permanent holiday for season 2015.

It's the run home to the finals and with just two weeks to go there probably aren't a lot of teams left. But the keen one's are still 100% committed. 

As usual the boys answer all your questions and preview Round 25.

Tantasy Podcast host Mark is MIA. Literally.

He's off on a holiday in the U.S of A. And it's lucky he is because not only is Mark not on the podcast this week, he's also out of the NRLCEO finals! The champ is out.

So Mikey and Brett preview the Tantasy Finals, Round 23 of the NRL and answer all of your questions.

We all like to think that we're the CEOs of our own fantasy teams.

But this week Moneyball talks to a real life CEO. We welcome former North Sydney Bears and Australian rep Greg Florimo to the show to talk about fantasy footy and what it's like to be the CEO of an NRL bid club.

It's a dream come true for Bears tragic Phil to interview a Bear.

After all, he does end every show with "go the Bears!"

The Tantasy boys welcome to the podcast the man with hair like a samurai and a beard like a lumberjack - Mr Aaron Woods.

After the Moneyball boys had Shaun Fensom on the show last week the Tantasy boys had to pull something out of the woods. Literally.

So Aaron Woods agreed to join the podcast!

Unfortunately he then had the day off after Origin. So the boys missed him! But he promised to be back on Thursday in a shortened podcast. So stay tuned for that.

In the meantime the Kiwis get up to their normal shennanigans, answer all your questions and preview Round 19 from an NRLCEO perspective.

Another great week of the Tantasy Podcast and another special guest. This week Brett (or Britt for the Aussies) joins Mark and Mikey to discuss a great week of footy.

The boys talk about how this Saturday is the "Marriage Killer". Five games of footy back to back to back to back to back. The best thing to do is leave your phone at home.

Another golden rule of fantasy footy is discussed - "why you should always talk up the opposition team".

And as always the boys answer your questions.

With regular host Phil off walking the Kokoda Trail and a host of other excuses from the Moneyball Boys, back-up Marcho had to dial-a-friend to get this week's show up and running.

He went International.

And the Tantasy boys answered the call.

So join Moneyball's Marcho and alongside him are a pair you'll know pretty well - Mark and Mikey from the Tantasy podcast.

The boys preview all the games for Round 7 of the NRL and discuss the lack of potency in the Knights backline.

There is also good discussion about the pros and cons of the waiver wire.

This week's All Star edition includes the Triple M's - Mark, Mikey and Matty.

Mark is fresh off a loss to the high flying Matty which makes it hard for him to admit and the calls of collusion are out already!

The boys talk about the dramas at the end of the Bulldogs game, but their biggest gripe is how some of them were throwing out full bottles - that's $8 in NZ!

Thie big questions include whether half points bench lead to tantrums in your competition - because it sure does in the Tantasy league! There's a lot of debate about the talents of Matthew Wright, or is it Matthew Wrong?

As always there's a shout out to David Fifita. We hope you're listening again mate.

Lastly they can't help but have a dig at the Moneyball boys who missed their podcast last week.

The first thing the Tantasy boys feel like they need to address this week is the bitch slap from Keify Galloway on Tim Grant. Then there's the fighting in the street between Jacob Loko and Jorge Taufua and Ben Barba and Dane Nielsen.

What's going on in thugby league?

The next target on the Tantasy agenda is why Aussies can play the new Moneyball.com.au fantasy game for cash and why they can't - is it because they are better at cricket?

Lastly, the Moneyball Podcast don't miss out on the sledges either, but you'll have to tune in to find out this barb!

For the first podcast post draft the boys lament some of their picks - particularly their first round picks.

After getting the first overall pick through a left handed darts challenge, Mikey's first pick ended up with a donut. Is it the first ever zero point scoring first draft pick?

The rest of the show focusses on the big issues including why Mark is losing on purpose to take advantage of the waiver wire, whether the new Dogs hooker is called Lick-her or Lick-a and a preview to the second round of the NRL.
