I reckon the Nietz factor alone probably delivers this one to DA. The rest of that team has a pretty good balance considering the pretty limited material we were working with.
Alright, I'll try and changre a few minds (noting that I am probably already too late...)

Dark Avenger's FF line is strong - but intercept mark king Paul Prymke cannot be underestimated. Who even knows if they get the I50 in the fist instance - Jamar is beating Preuss almost every tap, and Clarkson and Junior are struggling to beat Viney or Cell to the ball. Get it into my forward line, and it's deadset GOALS GOALS GOALS. Aaron Davey has 5 x the footy smarts of Jayden Hunt, and as much as I love Marty Hore little Aussie's eyes would light up like he just saw a full pot of turtle stew with that matchup. Schwarta FAR too physical for Riv, and there's one thing that should almost guarantee the win here... BEN BEAMS OFF THE BENCH!

I read that in Dwayne Russells voice. :tearsofjoy:
Now allow me to retort your fantastical mind. You annointing someone the intercept king doesn't make them so & Ben Beams greatest contribution to the MFC was breaking his wrist allowing Farmer to come off the bench & kick 9 second half goals.
As for talking up my team I won't venture in the realms of fantasy like you did. What I will offer is a player vs player in regards to their position. Bolded are the winners with purple being draws. You might be able to make the case for one or two players but I still have too many better players in the head to heads.

Ooh, great match-up.

Had Dark Avenger well ahead when looking at his forward line, but the mid/ruck battle and a few other match-ups keep it close.

PJ probably suffering a bit due to having more players from the early years, but even with that taken into account, I think the Avengers win it in a shootout.

I do like TK's team, however if the game was to be played in 2021, it would concede 19 goals from free kicks in D50, have $40,000 in first offence fines and at least 20 weeks worth of suspensions for jumper punches, sling tackles and late hits. I think its pretty close, I'd pay to see Garlett, Jurruh and Farmer all snapping away in the same game!
