Love it, Ian! Thanks for the great writeup.

I noticed a few things:

Votes for each position
GS 43, GA 39, WA 30 (Watson only), C 9, WD 0, GD 14, GK 15

Wing defence is a thankless position! And Watson is a massive standout in all midcourters.
Are we back to shooters getting all the votes like we used to complain about? Hehe – no I actually think that the shooters were truly dominant over defenders this year in general in SSN.

Number of votes and number of players voted for in SSN teams
Vixens 57/5, Fever 36/2, Lightning 9/2, Swifts 0/0, Firebirds 0/0, Giants 3/1, T’birds 3/1, Magpies 2/1

Look at that Vixens front four – all nominated. Amazing unit. And look at how close Fever got with only 2 world class players compared to the Vixens’ 5 (actually I would add Mannix to that category). I’m going to argue that Courtney Bruce should be a lot higher on this list, look at how amazing she was to battle against the Vixens attack and do so well.
