Just updating these numbers;

With Raz in the team - 7 wins and 3 losses, average for 87.7 - average against 79.5
Without Raz in the team - 2 wins and 5 losses, average for 76.7 - average against 88.7

Updated the numbers after a few games;

With Raz in the team - 9 wins and 4 losses, average for 93.1 - average against 80.5
Without Raz in the team - 2 wins and 6 losses, average for 76.2 - average against 87.7

Only if...... he played every game, based on these numbers we'd be eyeing our 15th win for the year on Friday night and a top 4 spot :(

so we have all been saying Orazio's last name wrong..

it is, in fact, pronounced Fant-A-Sia. From the horse's mouth on MMM.
If you look a lot earlier in this thread we had some knowledgeable posters tell us. I have since been calling him by the correct version to be corrected at the ground. No doubt they’ll be the first to tell me how to pronounce it forgetting I already have been.

Can confirm this is the correct way to pronounce his surname. Asked my italian grandma and aunt tonight.

Fantasia also means to use ones imagination it Italian.

Yup, I called this out back in May 2017 too. My folks refuse to call him by his Disney name, given the Italian blood.

Personally, I just call him "Rats".

Won the Best Clubman award at the Crichton tonight.

Essendon star Orazio Fantasia has been presented with the Bruce Heymanson Best Clubman Award at the Crichton Medal on Thursday evening.

The damaging speedster was voted in to become a part of the club’s leadership group this year and impressed in his first season in the role.
