Is it really though? I count nine players in that team that were better either before they joined Melbourne or after they left. Some of them didn't set the world on fire in red and blue.Think TK's team is better but that defence is really unbalanced. Too many bigs plus he has Gaspar on the bench! Farmer & Garlett would run riot.
May would take Garlett no problem and Howe and Bizzell wouldn't let the ball hit the ground anyway.Think TK's team is better but that defence is really unbalanced. Too many bigs plus he has Gaspar on the bench! Farmer & Garlett would run riot.
You're assuming Biz and Howe have aerial ball to cut off. With my midfield half the inside 50s are going in as scrub kicks along the ground!May would take Garlett no problem and Howe and Bizzell wouldn't let the ball hit the ground anyway.
Plus the whiz would be apart of the half time melee and end up too distracted to kick snags
I was gonna say with my midfield you Won't even get any inside 50sYou're assuming Biz and Howe have aerial ball to cut off. With my midfield half the inside 50s are going in as scrub kicks along the ground!
Also, Howe will turn it back over 50% of the time as it's pre "I learned how to kick", Melbourne Howe... not the species we see today.

Plus I haven’t really reviewed the form of each team yet - that’s a tomorrow job - but it’s got to be reasonably possible that I eventually vote against you on general principles
Upon review, Shanahan, Prymke & Broadbridge as my three defensive talls was never going to suffice. Should have gone with a May or Lever first pick ahead of Schwarz. But yes, I think my midfield, forward line and bench was indeed very watchableYou were unlucky to be matched up against DA there. If you’d got my band of weirdos round one would have been a dominant win for you. I think you put together a very watchable team
