I would rather roll 3 good lines with an enforcer, and a couple of specialists to spare, rather than roll 4 mediocre lines.
With the level of conditioning most players have, the conventional 4th line is obsolete IMO.
I disagree and I wont spend one second debating your biased opinion as I feel it would be a waste of time.
