Congratulations to all named here. It is a very solid group and well done.


Its only two 2 teams worth of players. That is less than 1% of the population. So some deserving players were not listed. But that is no reason to tear at those that did or to call the teams a total joke.


Congratulations to all listed here and enjoy your next level if you pursue that path.
