Tellin' it like it is...
We have to assume Marcus is leading off with Filler and Shaw....
Whatever Johan does, don't lead off with Shane, let Shane come in at 3 or 4 and hopefully match up with Kazakis again for a repeat of last year.
Lead off with Skyler and then Bergman
I'm guessing Marcus will lead off with Filler and I totally agree with Johan not leading off with Shane. Filler would already be the favorite on paper, and even more so because he is surely in Shane's head pretty good right now between the man handling of him and then all the bravado and trash talking about it. And aside from it being just one loss, if Filler trounces Shane again it will likely further negatively affect the way Shane plays if he ends up getting called on later for the final match. It will also likely affect USA team morale and confidence to see their best get so easily man handled and trounced again and could affect the way the rest of the team plays for the day as well.
I think Johan should lead off with Tyler or Billy though, not Skyler or Bergman. The way Filler is playing at the moment he is heavy favorite no matter who he plays on team USA so if you know you are probably taking the loss regardless just treat it more like a throw away match sacrificing one of your weakest players. Plus, if anything, Tyler or Billy might have the best chance for pulling off the upset as they are under the least pressure since they are fully expected to lose, and Filler might also take the match too much for granted and not bear down as much and make some unexpected errors. And if Tyler or Billy do lose, no biggie, he was supposed to so it doesn't affect him or the team near as much, and we still have all our big guns left to take on their not as big of guns.
