    I will take whatever the media predicts and add nine.

    So looking at about 19 I would say.

    12+ for the coach to remain

    13+ for a solid season

    13+ a finals win for a successful season

    I see us winning 25, this will be a soft year if Collingwood get hurt like last year.

    If we can end up with more scoreboard points than our opposition at the end of each game then there is no reason why we should not win them all.

    I don't think I truly grasp your plan, but send it to Bon and see what he thinks?

    Yes a word seldom used but one that fits BF nicely. I agree it doesn't matter what pick we use but bragging rights do play a part in certain types online persona.;)
    haha we got player xxxx for pick 16 suck my ball etc, type thingy. Whereas if we're forced to use pick 4-5 on player xxxx it losses a certain amount of "eat shit suckers"

    Agree with most of that, besides West Coast in Subiaco which I think we are more a chance of losing.

    I have us on 15 wins if all things go to plan, but as we all know every season has its unexpected wins and unexpected losses. In my opinion these will cancel eachother out across the board of a whole season. But for realism's sake, lets give or take a few wins and losses.

    So overall I think we will win anywhere from 14-16 games in 2013. Start of season is crucial, I think we can go 3 and 2 but 2-3 will be the pass mark and from then on we get a few easier games against weaker opposition.

    Should suit Bon fine as this plan doesn't require a plan B

    Nah, I just think we play in West Coast very well, We can win it. But yeah, there will be games either way that we will loose and win, where the opposite result was pending. I'd be happy with 14 wins and a finals apperance and winning the first week of finals.

    Losing to the GC? I hope it is a cold day in hell then, because that is what will be needed for us to lose to them imho.

    A finals appearance in 2013 would be bloody fantastic.

    Not really, they have usually been competitive with us.
    I think Gold Coast will be hard to beat at Metricon next year. (And we will have a down game)

    Less than 13 will have to be judged as a failure.

    You might be right. But if we have dropped the first 5 and the last 2 then im not going to be doing cartwheels if we end up on 13.

    Forgive my ignorance & I've obviously missed it somewhere along the way, but why is his nickname Silver?

    In regards to the OP, with our natural development & 'hunger' after tasting finals but being dumped out, I see us with a 15-7 record come finals time.

    Still not focused on 'x' wins as such, just wanna stop getting smashed by 15 goals. I want a decent % for a change.

    In saying that I can see twelve wins and then we could steal 2-3 more.
