Not to mention drafting Musil and Simpson's kid. Keegan Lowe had to specifically tell his dad not to draft him. That's a hell of a thing, hey? When your own kid has to explain a basic moral principle like "nepotism is bad" to you.
Anyway, I'm thrilled RNH is feeling better. Don't care when he returns as long as he's 100% when he does. I can handle watching a month of scrambling failure until he comes back. I've had a lot of practise.
