The Fighting Furies are a fantasy football club competing in the Sweet FA. They are the league's most successful club, having played in five grand finals in a seven-season stretch from season 05 to season 11 that yielded four premierships. Following that golden era, the Furies had an absence from finals before returning to be a powerhouse of the league in Season 15 where they lost to the West Coast Wonders in the Grand Final the 16 Grand final against the Geelong Gumbies and the 18 Grand Final to the Mt Buller Demons. Then the Furies won the 16 Grand Final against the Mt Buller Demons to be the first SFA side to win 5 Grand Finals.

When the Furies entered the Sweet FA back in 3 they played at the Original Punt Road Oval facility, which was located where fumbler's Funhouse is now located and did so until the end of season six. From the start of season seven they played at the now unused Tiger Dungeon which was renamed captain blood 17 Dungeon and also used it for season eight except for the pre-season and finals. 8 pre-season games were played on the newer Punt Road Oval which was not up to scratch for the regular season, and the finals games were played at Tiger Island. Tiger island was chosen as it had a greater capacity than the other two. The Furies now play at the newly renovated Punt Road Oval which was renamed rfctigerarmy Hippodrome before 25.

History[edit]

Fighting Furies SFA Club was established by rfctigerarmy in April 25, 2003. RFCTA was captain/coach and the vice captain was CJH. The first season was very poor and the Furies finished last on the ladder due to a points penalties accrued throughout the season.

rfctigerarmy thoughts on the History of the Fighting Furies: "I hadn't played in the league or Fantasy Footy before but I did have a look and thought it would be fantastic if the Richmond board could have their own side. As you can see in the first season we played, not many teams were purely based from a supporter base - most were a combination of players.

The name came to be "Fighting Furies" after public decision through the use of a poll but just on the Richmond board. We came up with about 5 or 6 options with Fighting Furies chosen as the eventual winner. The first year was pretty hard because I (we) had to convince people to post. And, I think 7-11 wasn't a bad ratio under the circumstances. I'm not sure how long I was captain/coach for (maybe 2006?) but I remember being captain/coach in 2005 (thus my info under my username).... still very proud. But, in addition to that, The Furies have made significant progress over the last year or two which is fantastic and what I've always wanted. Users of BigFooty are really passionate to see the Furies win and love to have a bit of a banter. Back in the old days, the number of posters were obviously less than what we have now but we've always had that cheek about us.

In a lot of ways we are what we want the Richmond Footy Club to be - a finals regular and never without a chance."

In it's original format the Fighting Furies was somewhat unique to other clubs as it only allowed supporters of the AFL team Richmond Tigers to join their playing ranks between the foundation yeaqr Season 3 and Season 16, Claypigeon a Carlton Blues supporter changed all this by becoming the first Non Tiger on the Fighting Furies list in S17.

Tigland and footy_fumbler took it a step further by allowing any supporter from any AFL club to join the newly transformed Furies, Uncle_Leo North Melbourne supporter was the first to come across and also joined the Leadership Group, he was quickly followed by Shadow Man Fremantle and raskolnikov Essendon and in seson 19 Tarkyn_24 joined the Furies as their Full Forward.

Since its inception, the Fighting Furies have been the most successful club in the league, having won a total of five Sweet FA premierships from ten, and two Pre-season premierships from three.

The Fighting Furies played and were situated on Tiger Island from Season 03 to Season 06 before being approached by a multi billionaire to transfer their headquarters and home games to the Punt Road Oval which is situated a stones throw away from the punt that traveled to Tiger Island, upon doing so the billionaire became penniless and was never seen of again.

Every Fighting Furies player to play in the SFA (i think).
