Here it is, folks, the 2012 SCTTL team. I know I said we’d re-poll a couple of positions but as Omen said to me in an email last night, we need to move forward with this thing. As such, I’ve made a couple of executive decisions on the rookies in the midfield and the forward line.
So here’s the team that I want everyone to lock in for Round 1 (changes have been bolded):
B Goddard (D/M), B Deledio (D/M), H Shaw, B Lake, M Clarke, B Ellis, B Smedts (D/F), T Bugg, S Morris.
G Ablett, M Murphy, J Selwood, M Pavlich (M/F), S Coniglio, D Shiel, L Brown (M/D), J Magner.
D Cox, S Mumford, J Giles, J Redden
L Franklin, N Fyfe (M/F), D Martin (M/F), A Christensen (M/F), J Porplyzia, D Smith (M/F), A Saad, D Pfeiffer (M/F), A Hall.
Cash Remaining: $52,900
This is the team that you must complete Round 1 with. No trades are to be made during the period of the partial lockout next week. Round 1 is to be won, lost or drawn on captaincy and on-field player selection alone.
I hope everyone’s happy with it. I’ve added a D/M DPP (Luke Brown) which the team needed, replaced Wingard because we could no longer afford him with Shiel, and replaced Stephenson with Redden (which was overwhelmingly popular on the site). Forward and Backlines have been left alone. This leaves us with a bit more money in the skyrocket for any trades people may want to make from R2 onwards.
At the end of the day, we all have to play with the same team. Hopefully we can really take this one a long way. My secret hope is that someone’s 2 year old son, mum, girlfriend, little sister or dog wins the whole darn shooting match with it!
Because we’ve got 5 leagues running for this the other thing we’ll do during the SC Finals is run an SCTTL overall finals series (which SCT will administer). The Highest 8 teams overall (from all 5 leagues) will play off in the SCTTL World Series. I haven’t worked out a prize for that yet, but we will put something up.
Sounds good huh?
Now the success of this game and the enjoyment of everybody playing in these leagues is entirely dependent upon everyone starting with the same team. If you join with a different team you will destroy that enjoyment for everybody else in the league and you’re going to have to spend an entire season with them.
So please, don’t think you’re being smart by playing with a different team to everyone else. You’re ruining 17 other people’s enjoyment and we will out you on the site as a dickhead. And with the thousands of visitors this site gets on a daily basis I think its fair to say no-one wants that.
Good luck to everyone involved!!
Final note: Brian (“Buddha’s Addiction) in SCTTL3 – I noticed today that your team is complete. Please readjust it to the configuration above and confirm either in Comments below or in Psyche Out for that league that you’ve done that. If I haven’t heard from you by 5pm Thursday I will delete your team and replace it.
