I'm not really sure what to make of the side this year. I was bullish about playing finals last season, but the suspension of Carlisle, Reid not geting on the track (I really have had the worst luck with backmen over the journey) and my midfield all deciding to drop 15 off their averages at once put paid to that.
I think I finished with five wins.
This squad looks less impressive but more solid. I certainly have a lot of versatility with several dual position players. Barring injury and suspension I think I have 25 out of thirty walk-up starts in AFL best 22s, and three of the other five aren't far off, so hopefully I'll be looking at very few donuts, and also have some room to allow for drops in form.
Very happy to get two new A Grade rookies.
If the backs and forwards can average 70 overall and the midfielders averaging 90, then this team should be competitive although not spectacular.
Looking at 12th-8th, although saying that means I'm expecting at least six teams to be below me.
This is a tough league. I think everyone's drafted very well so far, and I don't expect there to be much on offer in the FA's again this year.
Still, as long as I beat CB, Foggy, MB and Blummers then everything else is gravy, right?
