MFC Power Rankings - May '12

In honour/big fat rip off of the American obsession with doing power rankings for frivolous topics we've decided to do the same on a monthly basis. Every month, even in the off-season, applying the same formula for importance that may not actually exist as seen in the pre-season preview.

The only difference is that one was based on 'overall' importance, and this one is a rolling mark of their current importance. Are lightly injured players who would walk straight back into the side more important than space fillers who are there while we wait for them to return? Probably.

You will undoubtedly disagree with the findings, and rightly so. Obviously Bartram outranks Sylvia at the moment, because he's played every game whereas Sylvia has played one and a half - but Sylvia still outranks Magner because he's capable of devastating feats. Max Gawn outranks two rookies who are injured for a shorter amount of time because he's got a bigger profile.

The May ratings include the matches played so far this month, but from the start of June onwards the cut-off date will be the last day of the month - and if they go off their nut in a game on the first it won't count.

  1. Jamar a bit stiff when leading the comp in hitouts. I know the rest of his game is a bit concerning at the moment but he played pretty well the last couple.
