Author’s Notes: This is my first guide. Please be gentle.



The truth is, this game doesn’t really require too much skill. It’s about knowing when to press the right buttons and a fair amount of time and patients.


Step One: Practice Makes Perfect

I’ll recommend by starting off in Single Match on Rookie difficulty, so that you can get the hang of the game. Feel free to pick any team you want, it won’t really matter to be honest. Once you feel that you know what you are doing, put the difficulty up to Professional (I’ll suggest doing that once you get It’s A Drubbing and Storming Home). At First, it will bee more of a challenge, but it will get you prepared for the season achievements. You should be aiming to get Winners (Are Grinners) to start off with, if you can’t do this on Rookie, then don’t step up the difficulty just yet. Once you start winning by a fair amount, then switch over to professional. While practicing, there’s a high chance you’ll earn a few other achievements like Poster, First Use and The Beautiful Game. There’s also the chance you’ll get Slippery When Met and Road Trip if you set up the games with the correct settings.


Step Two: Professional Season

Start up a season on Professional, with your choice of quarter length, injury level and team. I chose Fremantle (tallest ruckman in the league) and 3 minute quarters. The Professionals and Amateur’s Hour are stackable, so there’s no need to play it through on Amateur (unless you want to). Just remember, DO NOT SIMULATE. Doing that will void the purpose of the season. It will also void Set For September.


Step Three: Legendary

Once you’ve completed The Professionals, its time for the real challenge. Legendary. This achievement has you play with Extreme injuries on and 20 minutes a quarter, so it does take a while. Just do what ever you did on professional and more. This is the longest achievement in the game other than Lifetime Lagger, but it will earn you a very nice 85 gamerscore. So it is well worth it in the end. Once again, No Simming. After the legendary season, switch over to the NAB Cup, where you have to play on the exact same settings as you did before.


Step Four: Online and Mop Up

With the Legendary season over, you can pretty much relax now. Jump online and complete 5 simple games and you’ll have completed the online portion of the game. Then its just a case of getting any leftover achievements. Australian Made and Chairman Of The Board are worth leaving until near the end, as they don’t exactly provide a benefit for the initial seasons. Lifetime Lagger is, as I said before, the time consuming achievement in the game, but it is by no means hard at all. By playing through the other steps of this game, you’ll have gotten yourself quite a few goals already.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-v2k6g=.jpgLeather Poisoning 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Gather 40 or more disposals with a single player.


Create a single match with any teams, but set the quarter length to 20 minutes. During the game, decide upon which player you’re going to have get 40 disposals, and make sure you get the ball to them a lot. Be sure to check your progress at the end of each quarter. This is also achievable during the Legend season



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-nXmh0=.jpgNo 'I' in Team 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Play a co-operative match with at least 2 players on the same team.


With a friend on the same console, play through a full game, on any time setting. After the game, this will be yours.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-+0gMI=.jpgDowntown 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick a goal from within the centre square.



This one can be a little tricky. You’ll have to get an amazing kicker to mark the ball in the centre square. Quite often you’ll have to wait for it to bounce through the goals when it’s close to them.

When I did it, I was using Matthew Pavlich from Fremantle. It’ll recommend not trying to torpedo the ball, as it’s fairly inaccurate.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-oWazs=.jpgAustralian Made 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Create a player in the player creator.


Go into the Footy Factory and select Create a Player. You don’t have to modify anything, unless you want to. But if you’re just after a quick achievement, keep pressing http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png until the player is finished, then exit back to the menu.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-g3Yo4=.jpgKicked a Bag 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick 5 or more goals in a match with a single player.


This one is very achievable in any amount of time. Just make sure the same player gets goals. If you aim to get the goals with the Full Forward of the team, it’ll be easier again.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-qPkvQ=.jpgFruity 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick a goal from the boundary with a banana.


When you’re kicking for goal from the boundary line, line up the goal, then hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rt.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png until you’ve got the power you want. The ball will curve around and hopefully get you a goal.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-8teQ0=.jpgTalk to the Hand 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Break 2 tackles in a row with fends.


This one does a little bit of skill. You have to press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/y.png and the exact time you are being tackled, in order to break it, and then do the same thing again. You have to be using the same player for the second one that you were using for the first.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-rwjhM=.jpgShut 'em Down 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Perform 10 effective tackles in a match.


For this one, make sure you are using the player that makes the tackle (using http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lb.png to switch players). If you get a free kick from the tackle, then that counts as an effective tackle. (Holding the Ball = Good, Too High and In the Back = Bad)

Use the opposition as a second controller to make it a bit easier to get.

It’s also easiest to get after the opposition has been told to play on. If you are using two controllers, run too far with the ball by sprinting with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rb.png, giving them a free kick. Then, once the umpire calls for play on, run forward and tackle them.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-lOY9I=.jpgOnline Player 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Complete 5 online games.


This one is easy in the sense that you don’t have to win the games; you just have to play out the entire game. Do that 5 times and this is all yours.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-5UeFE=.jpgDancing with Your Sister 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Play out a drawn game.


This one can either be accidental, or you can ensure you get it. If you wish to get it on purpose, just make sure that in the final quarter, the scores are relatively to each other, and within the last few minutes, the scores are equal.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-aNNSQ==.jpgSlippery When Met 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a match in the wet.


In Single Match, once you’ve set up the teams, go to Match Settings and select a stadium other than Etihad Stadium, and put the weather to raining. Then simply win the game.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-4JE-A==.jpgStorming Home 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Storm home to win without the opposition scoring a goal in the final quarter.


During any game, when you reach the fourth quarter, stop your opponent from scoring a goal in the final quarter. This is most easily done on the easiest difficulty, with 3 minute quarters.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/--1YGw==.jpg50 Metre Bomb 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick a goal from beyond the 50 metre arc.



It can be easier to get this one when your player is on the run, but if you have a set shot, the mark can not be taken within the 50 metre arc. To get this from a set shot, get the mark from a few metres out side the 50 and kick away.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-h2giA==.jpgPoster 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Hit a goal post and score a behind.


It’s more than likely that you’ll get this one by accident, from wherever you are on the ground. It won’t take you long to get this one.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-mK8bw==.jpgFirst Use 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Perform 5 taps directly to a receiver in a match.


When in the ruck, direct the ball to one of your own players. It’s easiest to get when you have player standing directly behind you. Just flick the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png towards then once the controller vibrates. Rinse and Repeat.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-2ViXc=.jpgEven Spread 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a game with 9 or more individual goal kickers.


When going for this one, it’s best to move your field around once one player has kicked a goal. Switching the most recent goal kicking with players from the back line and the bench will greatly help with this one. I’ll also recommend doing it in a longer game, for Example, when going for Leather Poisoning. An easier difficulty also helps.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-x1ceQ=.jpgChairman of the Board 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Create a full team of 40 or more players in the Footy Factory.


This one will take you a little bit of time. All you have to do is go to the footy factory, select team editor, and create a team. Then, go to the Player creation menu. With every player you make, when you are naming them, at the bottom there will be a ‘Team’ option. Put the new player into your custom team and then continue to create players until you have 40.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/+iCvBQ==.jpgAttacking Pressure 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick 3 goals as a direct result of free kicks from tackles in a match.


This one has been known to drop without goals being kicked (Out on the Full has been known to trigger it). The best way to do it is in your forward line, seeing as you’ll be able to do directly for goal. Using a second controller that has no one using it will also help.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/+AGmsA==.jpgRoad Trip 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a game with an AFL team against an interstate AFL team at their home ground.


This can be done throughout Season mode, if you are good at winning games, but to do it in Single Match, put your controller as the Away side. Then select any team and make sure they are not from the same State as the team you wish to use. Then, select their home ground and win the match.

E.G. Richmond vs. Fremantle at the MCG.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/+1muWQ==.jpgThe Professionals 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season on Professional, no simulating.


This one is stackable with Amateur’s Hour. Create a season, using a team of your choice (Be warned, Richmond vs. Geelong and Carlton vs. Sydney have been known to freeze later in the season, so I chose Fremantle)

Remember not to Simulate any game at all that your team is involved in. This includes selecting the other team and having the AI play for you.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-vtFoA==.jpgLegendary 85http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season on Legend, 20 min quarters, extreme injuries, no simulating.


This in the second most time consuming achievement in the game. As it says, play on Legend with 20 minute quarters and extreme injuries turned on. Once again, no simulating, or you end up wasting a lot of time.

A few tips with this, Spoil! A Lot! The AI will always beat you in the air when it comes to a contest. Only go for the mark when you are a few metres ahead of the other player. If there is a contest, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lt.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/y.png to spoil, then run onto the ball. If you have enough room to kick the ball, do so, otherwise I recommend handballing and tacking until you have the room to kick.

You’ll only need 15+ wins from the season to make it into the finals, so there’s no need to exit the game if you are losing. When you do reach the finals however, if you’re going to lose, Exit and play again.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/+Jhffw==.jpgAmateurs' Hour 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season on Amateur, no simulating.


See ‘The Professionals’ for details

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/+rlWyg==.jpgThe Beautiful Game 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick the ball off the ground to score a goal.


When the ball is on the ground in front of your goals, hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png. Your player will soccer the ball off the ground and hopefully earn you 6 points. Fairly straight forward.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-xu9Mw==.jpgNabbed It 80http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win the Pre-Season Competition on Legend in real time with extreme injuries.


Start a NAB Cup on the same settings you used to get Legendary, and again, no Simming. To get this done just that little bit quicker, pick either Sydney or Gold Coast, seeing as they get paired with Greater Western Sydney and it gets automatically Simmed. This doesn't cancel out the achievement either, which is very handy.

See ‘Legendary’ for a few tips on winning



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/+8BXlg==.jpgHard Nut 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Perform 20 heavy bumps.


To get this the easy way, create a single match and set up the opposition to be another controller. During the match, when the opponent gets the ball, run towards them and use the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png to bump them. I’m fairly sure knocking the player to the ground counts as a heavy bump. The other bonus with this achievement is that it doesn’t all have to be done in a single game, so you don’t have to stress if you don’t get it the first time you try to.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-vFqrQ=.jpgBy Hand 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a match with more handballs than kicks.


To get this, simple handball it around a lot. I’ll suggest getting a few points ahead at first, then start handballing like crazy (using http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/b.png). This is easiest on a low difficulty, but will also be achievable on Legendary if you play the way I have suggested (See ‘Legendary’ for those tips)


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-Tq0hg==.jpgSpoil Sport 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Perform 50 spoils.


This one will accumulate across all your games. Just Press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lt.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/y.png whenever there is a marking contest and you’ll get it soon enough. You’ll more than likely get this throughout the Professional season.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/-NpMFQ==.jpgTorpedoes Away! 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick a goal with a torpedo from 50 metres.


When on the run towards your goal, or from a set shot, hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rt.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png to kick a torpedo. (If you are near the boundary, it will do a banana kick instead, so make sure you’re near the centre)

Also make sure you kick from a few metres outside the fifty, as I described in ’50 Metre Bomb’



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-0-SaQ=.jpgLifetime Lagger 80http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Kick 5000 goals.


This one will take the most time achieve, and will more than likely be the last one you’ll get. Just play through many games and kick goals like crazy. After all other achievements have popped, set the game to a low difficulty and play 20 minute quarters. The amount of goals you’ll get in those games will get you well on your way. You’ll also have a lot of goals already, from both season and the NAB Cup play throughs.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-+Hud4=.jpgHot Streak 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win 5 matches in a row during a season on Professional difficulty or above.


This one is easiest to get in your professional season, provide you keep winning games. Shouldn’t be too hard if you are good at the game.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-xGSPg=.jpgEnd-to-End 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

From a kick-in, score a goal without the opposition touching the ball.


This one can be a little bit of a pain, but it fairly simple on a low difficulty. When kicking the ball in from an oppositions goals (your backline) Use http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lt.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/a.png to kick directly to a player on your team. Continue doing this until you get to your forward line and kick a goal.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-7NgZ4=.jpgWinners (are Grinners) 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a match.


Fairly straight forward. Win a match. It’ll be one of the first achievements you get, but can take a few games when you’re still getting used to the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-zsiCs=.jpgPlaying Tall 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a ruck contest with the shortest player on your team.


I’ll suggest going for this when you have created a team of your own. Make a player, and make his position ‘Ruck’ then make his height the shortest possible. Then, start a Single match, using a second controller as the opposition. At the first ruck contest, simply flick the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png to win the tap out.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-2msGs=.jpgChas 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

In Season mode, a member of the player controlled team wins the Brownlow medal.


Easily achievable if your player gets a lot of disposals and goals, especially if they are named man of the match. Just make sure you get the ball to one of your players a lot during each of your games.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-jivro=.jpgSet for September 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Finish on top of the ladder in a Toyota AFL 2011 Premiership Season, no simulating.


Basically, win as many games as you can, preferably, all of them. Remember not to simulate any of the games, and you’ll be sure to get this.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-idol0=.jpgFirst Class Century 80http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Have a player in your team kick more than 100 goals in a season.


It’s best to make sure your Full Forward gets a lot of the goals throughout the season. I played as Richmond in one of my seasons and had Jack Riewoldt get his hundred around Round 16 (before my game started freezing when I played Geelong)

The longer the quarter length you play with means more goals.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-nkowE=.jpgGot the Wood on 'em 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Defeat every team at least once in a home and away season.


Fairly straight forward, as it says. Just keep watch on the teams you lose to however. If you do lose to them early in the season, and play them again later on, make sure you win that second game.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1871/5-kCRik=.jpgIt's a Drubbing 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Win a match by over 50 points.



Easily achievable on a low difficulty, even in 3 minute quarters. If you have only just started playing the game and are learning the basics, earning this achievement will let you know that you pretty much know what you are doing. If you can win by 50 points a few times on either Professional or Legend difficulties, you’re more than ready for the season achievements.
