Ok, thanks to whomever drafted, I presume Oos, my first choice side is well balanced. But weak on midfield depth. This doesn't really help that, but it bolsters the squad, cheers-

Out Kyle Dunkley, in Ryan Burton
Out Ben Long, in Jake Carlisle

I think the person to thank/blame for your squad Blocker is Straddo.

Oos picked for Sox and Cookie, I picked for FD, Merc picked for Raglan Matt and the Colonel, and MattyT picked for Hypen.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

You're welcome in advance for your 2020 success. Midfielders are overrated, so overrated in fact that I didn't even pick any for my squad. I'm still not sure how that happened...

It's simple maths - one fairly good midfielder is way better than a million dollar ruckman (who, at best, will score in the low 20s).

In some future year we should go back to a point/mark for the big fellas.

I tried that strategy a few years ago, built a strong midfield, at the cost of drafting second string ruck and fwds, but found that having a lousy ruckman and forward line meant I fell 20-25 points behind which was hard for the midfield to make up every week.

On reflection it may have been the execution of the strategy by the coach that was the problem more so that the strategy itself.

No strategy and a second string coach seems to have been my problem.
I just wanna beat Slammo in the DuFFLe

I just had a quick look over the teams and they all look ordinary but Polly has actually drafted ok this year.
This could be your year if you don't stuff it up Polly.

Also, if someone just traded out Marlon Pickett I would dump my worst player and snap him up now.

@Polly, he was their academy pick from last year, went at pick 10 after Henry, looks a likely starter but will probably be managed and squeezed out when Ward & Zac Williams are fit.
