Owner: Tywin Lannister
GM: Petyr Baelish
HC: Daenerys Targaryen
Assistants: Tyrion Lannister, Varys the Spider
I mostly agree with Dave there's take on the management team. Tywin's clearly a greedy owner and Littlefinger is clearly a GM. I liked khaleesi for coach because of her rah-rah ability while Tyrion and Varys would be studious and fair assistant coaches.
Jaime-Barristan the Bold-Robb
Bronn-Ramsay Bolton-Ilyn Payne
Biggest offense of the original was omitting Barristan Selmy. That guy should wear the C on your team. Put him between Jaime (sniper) and Robb (skilled grinder) and that's a top line. Loras would be the flashy winger type of course. I figure on the third line get a little wild. Put the King Beyond the Wall between skilled siblings and you'll have a disruptive force. And I fully agree that the fourth line should shed as much blood as possible. I just think Bronn could have better linemates for the job.
Gregor Clegane-Jorah Mormont
Stannis Baratheon-Sandor Clegane
Thoros of Myr-Tormund Giantsbane
At first I thought pairing the Cleganes on defense would be a good idea, but then you'd have those two trying to kill each other and maybe neither is particularly swift. I gave each a reliable partner and tossed a gritty third pairing behind them.
(Extra skaters: Joffrey and the Kingsguard. They'll be good at sitting behind a wall while everyone else gets shit done.)
If I'm playing a team of snipers, give me Arya and those quick hands. If it's a team of hard nosed grinders, give me Sam to play the odds.
And I've officially descended to a new low. But hey, give me your takes and we'll wallow in the slums!
