There is a lot of talk about the uncertainty of counting on rookies such as Mayo and Wheatley and how disasterously dangerous that could be. I am not going to make a point here but ask a question. Please list 2 things in this thread: 1) All of the rookies that BB has given an important role to (starter or backup with a lot of pt) that have succeeded. 2) All of the rookies that BB has given an important role to that failed. When the list is complete, please not the following: How many rookies BB HAS relied on (I think the result will be a lot more than common perception) and what the success rate has been (again I think much better than common perception) My instinct is that the general feeling is that BB avoids using rookies like the plague, and any team that relies on a rookie is basically screwed. I think the results of this thread will be enlgihtening.
