Sliding Doors: OPL 2020 Split 2, Week 3

Welcome back to Sliding Doors, where each week we run through the OPL teams with sometimes spicy, sometimes nice if/then takes, and every now and then an additional bonus one around a special topic.

You might be familiar with this concept if you’re an AFL fan, which is where we got the idea. So without further ado, here are your sliding doors for the OPL Split 2, Week 3!


You were on the hype train after Week 1 and missed the stop at Week 2,

prepare to jump overboard in Week 3.


You were concerned about the Chiefs after Week 1,

you can now relax and enjoy a (hopefully) quality game against the Dire Wolves this weekend.


The Wolves want to prove that Week 1 was an anomaly and not the new norm,

they need to knock off the Chiefs and Gravitas this week. Else, they might be out of the title race already.


There’s one reason to boot up Gravitas Glory on Spotify,

it’s the fact that things are looking up for the Gravy Train after taking down Avant. This week will be a test though.


You thought Legacy’s chances of going 21-0 in Split 1 were good,

their chances in Split 2 are even better. The rest are already competing for second place in my mind.


You’re looking for a positive about this team,

at least their content on social media is alright. Only have 8 more weeks of losses to endure.


Order are looking to go to the next level,

signing Charlie Wraith can take them there. On paper, the squad has the potential to do better, and this might be the addition they needed.


There’s a team that’s caught my eye,

it’s Pentanet. They have the potential to cause absolute chaos in playoffs, or miss it all together. It’s going to be a fun ride.


That’s all we have for this week. Check back every Friday for more sliding doors!

The Oceanic Pro League returns today.
