ok.

so didnt get Daniels rankings, but as i said before, really only one guy outside the 8 couldve made it if he scored well, and really his rankings woud've only affected the top 6 teams where there's basically nothing in terms of points between them.

this years votes were all over the place, but there were only really 6 teams never in the hunt for the top 8.

i wont mention the order of the top 8 yet, so people wont be influenced on who they think will win each game.
but i can assure you the team voted 1st is matched up against the team that finished 8th, 2nd v 7th, 3rd v 6th and 4th v 5th, you just wont know who those teams are till after the final series.

Look at how the teams match up against eachother, and post who you think would win in a real world battle and why and maybe even margin.

Freddy has a better midfield and forward line and both teams have a serviceable defence

My team is obviously the best

1990crow vs FAITH is a touch matchup. Gave the nod to FAITH for a deeper midfield and better forward line even though I think 1990crow has a better defence and better depth

Had to give the final one to Danger Zone for a much better midfield. Danger in Texas is a bit light on there and will struggle against Danger Zone's deep midfield

1)
-Think Freddy's mids will overpower Maggsy's to be honest;
-Freddys forwards are unreal (when fit) thats the big issue for him, and Maggsy has a pretty good defence;
-Maggsy has a pretty good frwd line imo, but i think freddy has a pretty good defence to break even there.

*So im going Freddy by 15points

2)
- AC has the best mids in the comp imo and should overwhelm scorpus's;
- However Scorpus's defence should totally shut down ACs frwds;
- Scorpus has a couple of gun frwds, but AC has a pretty good defence.

*Tough one, but AC's mids should be too good, so AC by 17 points

3)
- I think our mids are pretty even;
- My Fwrd line vs his defence, pretty even again, maybe i have the slight advantage there;
- Im pretty confident my defence will hold out his frwds.

*Im going me by 7 points :p

4)
- Big fan of DZs mids, should get ontop, but DITs mids arent bad either;
-I think DITs defence can hold DZs frwds pretty well;
-Tough one, maybe DIT frwds too much pace for DZ's defence.

*DIT by 1 point, toss of a coin imo.

Four teams from my top 8 didn't make the overall cut - Daniel1812 (was he ineligible?), Hank93, Kristof and roo2macca

And the team that I rated dead last made it in!

Daniel just missed out, he was eligible.

I'm a bit disappointed. Most of you aren't taking into account the flexibility of my team and the calabre of my mids. I have the flexibility to put danger in the forward 50 and not lose midfield power. The only team in this comp that would actually give mine a run is faiths. I'd smoke scorpus by over 50 points. Easy.

Forward line is a serious concern, only Jesse Hogan is decent. McCarthy, Sam Gray and Jack Watts are all spuds

Freddy Bassett def. Maggsy
Rank 3 vs rank 13
Midfield and forward significantly better. Better depth in defence.


Scorpus def. adelaidecrows
Rank 2 vs rank 9
adelaidecrows May have a better midfield by a margin but the forward and defences are substandard to the point where it could have the AA midfield and not be competitive against Scorpus’ well rounded side.


1990crow def FAITH
??? Vs rank 6
I think Faiths side deserved to be around the top 8 mark even with the outs.
But.. I think my side has more depth around the ground.


Danger in Texas def by. Danger Zone
Rank 4 vs Rank 1
Not much between the two but slightly better all round side. Depth deciding factor.

Not when you throw Dangerfield in there. Gray isn't a spud. Actually he performs pretty well statistically. McCarthy is capable and so is Watts. I have a great forward line mix that any defence would find hard to shut down especially with the midfield running power I have.

My results:


Freddy Bassett vs Maggsy

The Hound wins here.

Had Freddy Bassett 3rd overall. Gun team.



adelaidecrows vs Scorpus
Horror match up :eek:

My 1st and 2nd ranked teams going head-to-head.

adelaidecrows by 1 point



FAITH vs 1990crow

1990crow my winner here

Sorry FAITH, you ran a great game but I had you LAST in my rankings overall :eek: Despite having a near perfect score for your midfield. Was fairly close top to bottom mind you. Very good year's drafting by all.



Danger Zone vs Danger in Texas

Danger in Texas for the win. Had his team 6th overall, Danger Zone 10th.

Freddy Bassett vs Maggsy
Two well rounded sides, but I think Freddy’s better midfield will win it for him

Scorpus vs adelaidecrows
Too much scoring power for Scorpus

FAITH vs 1990crow
Close one. FAITH has a few standout individuals, but I think 1990 has a better team

Danger in Texas vs Danger Zone
I actually don’t mind DiT’s team, but I’ve got a much better and deeper midfield. Plus Ratugolea is a pretty rubbish FF :p

Normally I don’t care about end of season voting much, but I’m genuinely surprised I didn’t make the 8 this year.

Maggsy > Freddy Bassett - Just
adelaidecrows > Scorpus
1990crow > Faith
Danger zone > DIT
I’m pretty surprised too, I had you in the finals. In fact, only 3 of my top 8 made finals (excluding myself obviously)

Freddy > Maggsy (just)
Scorpus > adelaidecrows
1990crow > FAITH
Danger in Texas > Danger Zone (obviously)
Just some reasoning:

Freddy’s defence IMO is one of the best, and probably picks Maggsy’s apart. Like Freddy’s mids better, too

Scorpus IMO just has too much scoring power for ac to deal with. Really like the depth of Scorpus’ side, too

FAITH has some nice top flight players, but I think 1990crow just has some better depth around the ground. Hard to name a weakness

Sucks that I had to come up against DZ’s midfield, but I still defeat him pretty comfortably I think. Forward line, ruck and defence are all better, and midfield is competitive. And Ratugolea is good :)

Nice write up except not factual at all. Sides dont win on scoring power alone and midfields generally is where matches are decided.
