The "Also Rans" Poster Draft

Burgey

Slight edit. Stephen has obviously disgraced himself by speaking positively about One Nation and Cribb’s buffoons, and in an election campaign to boot. He has been rightfully expunged. VictorIan will now take the new rock.

also added Hingeh, a criminal exclusion on my part from the original post. My fault for failing to proof read TBT’s efforts. The relevant team member has gone the way of Stephen - expunged. Apologies @GotSpin for the error. I acknowledge the error on the part of the team (not me though. I don’t hold a keyboard mate).

i think that’s basically every decent regular poster now included. If anyone is aware of someone I’ve overlooked, feel free to post and let me know.


The following are obviously exempt from this draft as they are ATGs of the forum whose contributions and consistent excellence make them beyond reproach. Keep in mind that at th ATG level there is very little between these posters, each of whom are rightly rated enormously highly.

Apologies if I've left out some decent posters. I may have forgotten a couple but it's unlikely.

Anyway. I hate drafts, because in a cricketing context they're stupid. Picking fantasy sides of players from across different eras who will never play against each other is as dumb as dog **** as a past time - about as useless as reading a fantasy novel about elves or dwarfs going on an adventure or some other stupid wankfest.

However, they have a use when it comes to comparing contemporary posters on CW.

This draft will determine the worst XI of the CW vermin who are always her or hereabouts, but who really contribute very little of use except for being space fillers. The kind of posters you usually just trawl past blithely because you know they really add nothing of any real value. They're usually more to be pitied than despised, however, occasionally they're worthy of derision.

I make no apology for having taken this idea from Line & Length's thread and thank him for the inspiration.
Ok
