Emma has asked for a Rate My Final Team thread. Since she has asked, she will receive.
As Emma suggested, state your team then critique that bad-boy (sexist I know, but rate that bad-girl just sounded wrong). What would you have done differently if you could relive your season?
To get the ball rolling, I’ll come clean with my ‘meh’ team:
DEFENCE: Jake Lloyd (SYD), Elliott Yeo (WC), Kade Simpson (CAR), Rory Laird (ADE), Shannon Hurn (WC), Tom McDonald (MEL)
Bench: Joel Smith (MEL), Lachlan Murphy (ADE)
MIDS: Tom Mitchell (HAW), Patrick Dangerfield (GEE), Patrick Cripps (CAR), Clayton Oliver (MEL), Stephen Coniglio (GWS), Marcus Bontempelli (WB), Dustin Martin (COL), Scott Pendlebury (COL)
Bench: Brayden Sier (COL), Paul Ahern (NM), Callan England (WC)
RUCK: Brodie Grundy (COL), Max Gawn (MEL) Bench: Olango (WC)
FORWARD: Lance Franklin (SYD), Devon Smith (ESS), Chad Wingard (POR), Justin Westhoff (POR), Isaac Heeney (SYD), Toby McLean (WB)
Bench: Christian Petracca (MEL), Tim Smith (MEL)
And my thoughts on this team?
I started with too many duds, jumped on a few players at too higher price and selected some questionable rookies which affected my cash flow. That meant I couldn’t afford players like Macrae and Dunkley at season’s end when I wanted them. So I have a few middling premiums rather than the very best.
My biggest regret (and embarrassing admission) was panicking just before the Sydney vs GWS match last week and trading out Parker, who was projected to struggle, for Bontempelli. It cost me 35 points, my last trade and a possible donut or rookie score should Buddy and the Bont now miss.
At least my cash league opponents should be happy this week! Right, Huttabito?
Over to you now, coaches. Let us know the deepest, darkest secrets of your Supercoach soul.
