    Tips..

    This is a great way to test yourself, the beauty of this site you can look back on a post from a long time ago. Please post you tips for Tassie Medal and Premiership, also the top 5 teams at the end of home and away season

    Here are my tips.

    Launceston
    North Hobart
    Clarence
    Lauderdale
    Burnie

    Glenorchy
    Devonport
    North Launceston
    Hobart
    South Launceston

    Baby face Banham to win the medal from trent Mccrossen

    I actually the expect the competition to ber much more equal this season with south and devonport picking up many players. They could easily knock off a top 5 side on their day..

    What is your top 5

    As a matter of interest, why would Burnie fall away so much??
    Given the uneven roster, I cant see how Burnie could 5th & at the same time 3 of the bottom 4 could also be northern clubs. Someone other than Launceston surely would win enough games to get nearer the top. Like wise if Glenorchy are 6th & Hobart 9th, I cant see the other southern clubs being 2nd 3rd & 4th. I dont see how that could work out. Am I wrong??

    I agree with Madmug, it seems unlikely that the ladder could look like tassie footy has predicted but we are all entitled to our own opinion.
    Burnie will be much stronger than last season with only minimal losses and they have recruited very well so I think they will be heading upwards on the ladder not downwards. It is a bit hard for me to assess the chances of the Southern clubs without knowing the gains/losses and although I hope Devonport and South Launceston do improve I think those two clubs and Hobart will probably be the bottom three but you never know.
    My final ladder would be

    Launceston
    Burnie
    Lauderdale
    Clarence
    North Hobart

    Glenorchy
    North Launceston
    South Launceston
    Hobart
    Devonport

    Lauderdale 3rd???? Have they recruited anyone other than Garth and Cassidy? I heard they'd got a young bloke from up north and Damon Smith has Uni down this way, so could be an option.
    Still couldn't see them getting 3rd over Clarence. I reckon they'll go close to playing finals. Cassidy is quality pick up

    My ladder!
    Launceston
    Glenorchy
    Burnie
    North Hobart
    Clarence

    North Launceston
    Lauderdale
    Devonport
    South Launceston
    Hobart

    Launceston vs Burnie for the Second year with Burnie taking it out this time!

    Jason Laycock and Zane Murphy (who we all hope doesnt get rubbed out) to fight out the Tassie Medal....

    Launceston will be a mile in front on the top of the ladder with the next 5 or 6 spots pretty tight.

    South launceston and Hobart to fight out the Spoon, Who ever gets the home game might just sneak into 9th.

    All you hater, This is just what i think. You dont all have to agree!!!!

    Without knowing who has picked up players & who has lost them, it is hard to be too certain about the ladder. But this looks fairly close to what I think at this stage at least:D

    Burnie to finish top i reckon, home ground advantage, 9 gf u18 players will improve, laycock,banham,lee fitter in 2012 + ponsonby,mccrossen and other recruits fitting in well + headquarters at afl tas want them to win so will help where possible .

    South also with all the $$$ from wadey have to go better than devonport, devonport have lost players to qld due to u employment and havnt recruited, bar heazlewood ( who is a good one).

    Heard launceston have lost quite a few players that had committed post season.

    Devissor back to melbourne
    C savage bridgenorth
    Edwards bridgenorth
    Boyce. Overseas

    Derbyshire and a finch are training but havnt played for 18 months so may be injury prone, be interesting to see if blues drop back while others are improving which may be good for the comp

    Launie back to back, too strong. North Hobart to be the big improvers this season with the amount of young guns they have recruited. Glenorchy have lost a lot of experienced players and haven't gained any boom recruits to replace them. Will struggle this season. Should see south and dev a bit more competitive this season and Hobart to struggle to get a win on the board.

    Its a bit hard to see the above as a likely ladder. I might rate the teams in a similar order but we play a lopsided draw. I still cant see the top two not being last years GF teams Launy & Burnie. The next 3 teams will probably be from the south. North Hobart, Clarence, Lauderdale & Glenorchy may be closer than we think. I'm also not so sure Hobart will end up on the bottom either. I reckon the southern 1/2 of the comp will be a lot more even than the northern 5 teams. Thats only from what little I've heard & seen, which ain't much really:D
    It would be nice if we had a bit more in the media & out of AFLTas about the clubs & the up coming season. Or will we have more of the same non marketing of the league? I wonder if they really care about footy & the supporters at all?:(

    6 Glenorchy
    7 North Launceston
    8 Devonport
    9 South Launceston
    10 Hobart

    Launnie and Burnie will be the teams to beat again. Also the bottom of the table will remain pretty much the same. Devonport should be stronger this year.
