I haven’t been able to frequent the comments in these pages as much as I would have liked these past few days.
It’s been an extremely busy few days. I’ve been representing our proud community at the board table inside the bowels of Supercoach HQ in the city.
The debate around positional changes was heated. I jobbed a bloke at one stage. We’re all good now.
What we need to do now my friends is put some real thought into team structure given a controversial set of positional changes.
I’m not going to sit here typing thousands of words of analysis. Let’s have a look at the most significant changes and discuss them as a fantasy footy evolved people in the comments below.
What I will say to kick things off is this;
Our forward lines will be very bloody interesting
We had a shitload of ripping FWD DPPs in 2016. In Supercoach 2017 we’re losing Zach Merrett, Dustin Martin, Zorko The Magnificent, Michael Barlow and Aaron Hall who will become MID only. Joey Montagna loses his FWD eligibility and becomes DEF only.
Zerrett, The Dust and Zork were our 3 best scoring forwards for the season. We need to identify replacements.
We still have Dahlhaus and have picked up Caddy, Macrae, Angus Brayshaw, Touk Miller and a few other spuds as MID/FWDs.
I’m aroused by the forward line in 2017 folks. I reckon we’ll be seeing some very interesting forward structures over the preseason.
I theorise that CD/HS want to push us towards selecting key position players hence the lack of clear mid/fwd options #SuperCoach big tick ✅

The end of Daniel Rich
He’s MID only. No longer will we be seduced by this February hero paddle pop lion prick.
Taylor Adams has rocketed into selection contention with MID/DEF eligibility. Toby Nankervis will feature prominently in selection discussion and rightly so, he’ll have RUCK/FWD DPP along with Paddy Ryder, Tommy Boyd, Majac and a stack of cheap big men.
