Seem to be 'cornering the market' in small forwards.
Must be pretty confident that we have a hit a long term formula for success.
What’s that strategy called?
To stop other teams copying our style, we grab and stockpile all available quick, pressure type small forwards.

Master stroke actually!!!

Must be a bit disheartening for this kid knowing he'll be about 15th in line for his position.

My only thought is Riolis ankle is a lot worse then what the club is letting on and we've got extra cover for him!
Don't know if it'll be disheartening. Hopefully it brings out his (and others) competitive streaks.

Yeah small forward is going to be a tough gig at RFC, but hopefully it makes these kids even more determined than they are.

The interesting thing is that it's not obvious that the other 17 sides are buying it (if you look at the trade/draft period pattern).
If we are right, the potential payoff is huge.

In economic terms its called "Cornering the market" In the late 1950s, United States onion farmers alleged that Chicago Mercantile Exchange traders, were attempting to corner the market on onions. Their complaints resulted in the passage of the Onion Futures Act, which banned trading in onion futures in the United States and remains in effect.

I hope RFC leaves the spud market alone from now on

We take all the small forwards who have great defensive pressure!
We make them fight for limited spots. We have a monopoly on small forwards with defensive pressure!
We decide who the best are, then when we are ready to move to a taller forward structure and different game plan, we trade the rest to teams who will go small in the forward line.
We have agile taller fast defenders who can handle the pressure of the smaller forwards.
We keep winning flags;):p:rolleyes::rolleyes:
RFC always one step ahead:p:p:p:p:p
