West Coast
Richmond - Will be tough to beat again. The failure of 2018 will drive them.
Adelaide - No preseason camp to derail their season this time around. Tough to beat in Adelaide.
Melbourne - Genuinely good team. They will come close to winning the flag.
Essendon - They will play most of the year like they did the second half of 2018.
Collingwood - With a tougher draw, they will slide a little bit. Still thereabouts.
West Coast - Teams around us have improved this trade period whilst we did not. Tough to beat in Perth.
Hawthorn - Like Collingwood, a tougher draw means they will finish a little lower than the previous year.
Fremantle - My finals bolter this year. They addressed their needs during trade period. Also tough to beat in Perth.
-------------------
GWS - Unlucky to miss out, but they have lost a bit of talent this past trade period.
North Melbourne - A season similar to 2018. Will beat a few finals bound teams, but will lose one or two to average teams.
Sydney - Will spend a season or two outside the top 8 before challenging again.
Brisbane - An eight to ten win season. Will beat a few top 8 teams. They will play finals next year.
Bulldogs - Similar to Brisbane. An eight to ten win season with finals the next year.
Geelong - Average team with an average coach. Unlucky not to finish higher.
Port Adelaide - Probably have them too low but I reckon they'll be playing heaps of kids this season.
Saints - Another horrid year, Richardson sacked at the end of the year.
Carlton - They will rue trading their first round pick to Adelaide. Bolton sacked at the end of the year.
Gold Coast - In no mans land right now. Also blooding heaps of kids who will take a few seasons to mature.

I haven’t, will try to another time but not sure where which games I’d pick for upsets at the moment
Yeah it’s impossible to know but it’s far more likely that positions 5-6 to 11-12 will be neck nd neck around 11 to 13 games . It’s becoming more and more likely that you need 13 wins to make the 8 now or 12 and a massive percentage

They might, they might not. You won't know unless you factor in injuries and development. At this stage, Essendon have the better list and therefore are rated higher for a reason.
Better list than North is debatable.
North’s midfield is superior, especially with the new additions in the offseason
North’s defence and forward line also stack up well against Essendon’s.
Scored more and conceded less.
Time will tell.

Both compare very similar for winning record

Overall record
Hardwicke 53.9%
Buckley 53.7%

Regular season
Buckley 54.5%
Hardwicke 54.0 %

Buckley is 44 games less coached

Nathans prominence in the media has been driven by the takeover from MM and the struggles after that. Its a Collingwood thing
Why are you putting a 'e' on Hardwick? It's very anoying.

We’ll see . Brodie smith, Brad crouch , tex walker are all fit and firing in preseason which wasn’t the case last year. We also have a pretty comfortable draw
Brad Crouch might be fit for round 1 but round 4 is a different story. Bloke is made if glass.

Rationale:

View attachment 590851



*I don't consider 'organic improvement' (or decline) as it very rarely actually eventuates as much or as quickly as expected (e.g. Hawks, Swans and/ or Cats were supposed to fall off the cliff last year, while Saints, Blues and Lions were apparently ready to make a charge). Every club has great yoof burning up the track. In this case I have made only one exception for Brisbane and raised them up a couple of spots based on the improvement they actually DEMONSTRATED in the second half of season 2018.

Interested in other people's thoughts.....
I’d be staggered if hawks finished top 4 again let alone 2nd. Melbourne to miss finals? They should comfortably be top4 next year. For mine the best 4 teams in the comp will be fighting it out for the flag, tigers, eagles, Melbourne, pies.

Based on doing a ladder predictor, this is what I came up with.
Of course it's total garbage and reality will be a lot different.

Essendon 17 wins 5 losses 68 points 120.0%
Melbourne 17/5/68/118.8%
West Coast 16/6/64/118.2%
Collingwood 16/6/64/116.4%
Adelaide 15/7/60/112.3%
Richmond 14/8/56/114.6%
GWS 13/9/52/110.1%
Brisbane 11/11/44/101.0%

Hawthorn 11/11/44/100.5%
Port Adelaide 11/11/44/100.0%
Geelong 10/12/40/102.6%
North Melbourne 10/12/40/96.0%
Sydney 9/13/36/97.5%
Western Bulldogs 9/13/36/94.1%
Fremantle 9/13/36/9.31%
Carlton 6/16/24/87.7%
St Kilda 3/19/12/72.9%
Gold Coast 1/21/4/66.7%

I can imagine that being one hell of a last round - Hawks missing the 8 by 0.5%, Port by 1.00% and Geelong by 1 game.

I am sure the Lions' fans would reach out sympathetically to the ones who just missed out but unsure if their efforts would be appreciated at the time ;)
