    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 ;)

    Polec is a good player, but surely Hall and Tyson are piss takes?

    I genuinely believe North will get the best out of Hall. And his best is pretty good and just what we need. He was getting tagged in a shit side as recently as this year whereas at north he will have all eyes on Higgins and Polec, with Cunnington feeding the ball out to him. He adds another dimension to our stoppages.

    I often think back to how much better we looked with Billy f****ing Hartung in the team. Replace him with Polec and Hall and we look so much better again. Really like how we have specifically addressed our deficiencies in the off-season.

    Both cost us bugger all; Hall for pick 69 and Tyson for a VFL ruckman who couldn't get a game in a team who did't play finals.
    But at their best, both are best 22. Hall in particular has significant upside.

    Other Teams:
    Matildas
    GWS (talent through the list, some injured players return and they picked up another 4 players inside the Top 25 in a strong 2018 draft)
    Collingwood (have belief now, midfield and ruck will win them the games they should - better luck with injuries through h&a season)
    Port Adelaide (taking a punt here that its now ...or its never, Ryder freed up, Rozee should have immediate impact)
    Melbourne (Hogan a loss, but they got to a prelim without him and should be as consistent as last year)
    Richmond (Lynch and Riewoldt will be the best tall forward combination the league has seen for years, but other areas might wane)
    Essendon ( Shiel looks ok, but they should have addressed inside mid clearance issue. Someone has to step up there. Will be about the mark if Daniher is back to his best)
    Fremantle (don't have the toughest draw to start and 2nd half of the season should see newer recruits click - won't be a threat in finals)
    West Coast ( home games the key, might find it hard to drive for back to back and lose interest and also lose too many h&a games to be in contention)

    Geelong (home ground advantage always puts them in contention but something vulnerable about them even when their midfielders rack up possessions, another year older and not much to add)
    Western Bulldogs (rebuild seemed to happen straight after their premiership - what's the plan, Bevo? You've been to the mountain, now its win some/lose some/win some etc )
    Hawthorn (its a new generation of leaders at Hawthorn with apparently the same resolve and know-how to keep winning games of football, but lack of top draftees over the decade might eventually toll)
    Carlton (list has talent, would even have them higher but unsure if Bolton is the man to coach)
    North Melbourne (probably should be in the spot I put Fremantle in - swap if you don't support Fremantle)
    Adelaide (Injuries made it hard to judge their 2018 season but i feel once you get to the precipice and you can't take the next step the following year the cohesion of a team starts to crumble - the message from Pyke might be stale. Capable of beating any team at home, but will lose games they are expected to win)
    St Kilda (better than last season or much the same as)
    Brisbane (4 win season in 2018 and everyone says they're going in the right direction. OK 8 win season in 2019)
    Sydney (Surely somewhere along the line this team has to have a shocking season and plummet. Think of Pick 2 in 2019 Sydney fans and look to 2020)
    Gold Coast (its 2010 again)

    Essendon will be the umpire’s pets next year,Collingwood will still be up there and Richmond down the bottom as per usual,I wonder what new rule they will use against the Tigers r1 this time?

    I still think it will be a Richmond Collingwood grand final.

    Brave Pies versus those evil Tiges.

    Complaining about biased umpiring for a season not even played yet.

    With that much oomph behind it, confirmation bias becomes a powerful thing. He will get to the end of 2019 convinced events have proved him right, regardless of what the umps actually do.

    Umpires should really be paid more.

    Surely there isn't somebody in this world paying smasha?

    No boohoo about it, go back and look at most seasons ladder predictions, north is always predicted to have a poor season and as usual
    We exceed expectation...book mark it....
