Probably... I also have Dodger and don;t use him. There are cheaper
deckers out there, and my deck isn;t based around deckers...

Dirk, however, I wouldn;t use unless you put in a lot of contacts... If
you're only using a couple, you've wasted his special, especially if you
don;t get him out early... What are his stats and skills?

I have 2 that I love... Jack Skater is great. A 4/6 with a couple skills,
plus an ungodly Leadership (equal to the number of runners with him:)).

I also use Wheeler a lot. When he's put in play, you get to give him a
Vehicle from your deck for free... I love slapping a Bulldog on him...;]

Bull, aka Steven Ratkovich, aka Rak, aka a lot of others! :]

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
