Good get.

Poll didn't save the last entry for some reason.

Fixed up.

I've reset all the voting, so if you had already voted, please vote again.

I suspect when we did this last year folks voted in two different ways.

Some picked players they considered the best 22 on the list.
Others picked a balanced side that would take the field.
So if you have an excess of talent or a type of player in one part of the field how do we want to play this exercise.
It's a subtle difference and would mostly only apply to players on the fringe.
So can we just clarify.
Best 22 or Best side?

I’ve selected my best team rather than the best 22.  It’s getting harder with many decent footballers missing out on a spot.

I used the teamboard as suggested by Kruddler and have saved a screenshot.  It will be interesting to refer back to it as the season progresses and the newbies get put through their paces.

Why are we still not providing a sub? (No 23)

I suspect there will be quite a few fans who struggle with their favourites being borderline on weekly selection for 2024.

I hope the MC is smart and implements an intelligent horses for courses approach during the Home and Away, to get everybody cherry ripe for the end of the season.

In my opinion Chris Scott is correct in how he load manages his ageing players, but I think the concept of load management should be more universal, not just something we start to think about when players get older.

Data comparability?

As we’ve seen, choosing the wrong sub can be costly and a lesser but more versatile player may be a better option than a more capable, single role player.

I chose my 22, the picked an extra player as the sub so I’m not particularly fussed whether it’s best 22 or 23.

What I want to know is who omitted Weiters? 🙄

I agree.

I actually went back to the one i did last year to find out what i wrote.
Thats why i added the 'best side' magnet link....to try and clear up the confusion.
Some people still vote on the best 22 players, but ideally we want to be consistent.

Kruddler reset the poll to include Cottrell, Thry.
Have you voted since he did that?
If not, vote again.

Because it ultimately doesn't matter.

Partially to keep it the same as last year.
Partially because its takes people 'sub-bias' out of their teams - some would add a 2nd ruck, whereas others think the 2nd ruck is the worst sub option or the 23rd player could be an aging veteran or a new kid etc.
Partially because the 22 who start are better than the 23rd player who doesn't.
....it also makes it harder to so you have to fight for who you want in your 22 and someone 'good' will always miss out.

You should be limited to 22 votes maximum. ;)

I can't see either, but i don't think i could see for all of last year too.

I think there was a site update somewhere along the line that stopped the bolded parts of who you voted for from showing.....which is annoying.

To solve thrys problem above, i use the magnet board, and then post the team in here, so i can refer back to it later for comparison.

So my team....which is based on a lot of optimism....

FB - Newman - Weitering - Docherty
HB - McGovern - Kemp - Saad
C  -    Acres  -  Cripps  -  Walsh
HF - Silvagni - Curnow - Martin
FF - Fantasia - McKay - Motlop
R - DeKoning - Hewitt - Cerra
Int - Cottrell - Cincotta - Cuningham - Williams

Yes, i've left Pittonet out. As i said last year, based on TDKs potential, he should be able to take the #1 ruck role and make it his own. Maybe this year?
Fantasia is picked, despite my protesting that he is not a position of need, we picked him up, so he must be a fair upgrade. We'll see.
Williams slots in. Again, optimistic, his best should earn him a callup.

I've also gone smaller than most people will as i've said too many talls hurts us. So no 2nd ruck, Jack can cover.
Also plenty of hard running on the bench as when we were flying, that is why we were winning.

Plenty of blokes are still to miss out.
Hollands (x2?)
Owies
C. Durdin
Fogarty
Boyd
and even Kennedy despite his slower style by comparison.

We'll see how we go after the pre-season games where i do part 2.
