Just did the Ladder Predictor. Obviously some positions could change due to percentage. I'm confident with the top 8 and honestly the top 7 teams could finish in any position from 1-7 in my opinion just depends on injuries etc
1st Adelaide 18-4
2nd Collingwood 17-5
3rd Richmond 17-5
4th Geelong 17-5
5th Melbourne 16-6
6th West Coast 15-7
7th GWS 15-7
8th Essendon 13-9
9th North 11-11
10th Brisbane 11-11
11th Hawthorn 10-12
12th Sydney 9-13
13th Fremantle 9-13
14th Port 7-15
15th Carlton 5-17
16th Western Bulldogs 4-18
17th St Kilda 4-18
18th Gold Coast 0-22

Our defense had Dunn, Moore, Reid Scharenberg and Goldsack out for essentially the entire year, with players like Howe regularly injured and battling to prove fitness week in week out and Sam Murray suspended with drug charges. That puts out KPD stocks at literally zero.

If you got Richmond and put Rance (Dunn), McIntosh (Moore/Goldsack), Vlustin (Howe) and Houli (Scharenberg/Murray) out for the year you would seriously question their ability to win games on a consistent basis. And that's just defense.

Yes that injury size isn't exclusive to Collingwood, but particularly in the case of Richmond you can't ignore their dream 24 month run with injury. Look at what happened when just Martin injured for the Prelim, their midfield fell apart, and he wasn't even out.
Their supporters are delusional to these facts. They will struggle to make the 8 if they cop injuries to several key players. They have without doubt had the best run with injuries in recent times.

15. Fremantle - Don't know where to rate them, this feels too low but someone had to go here. I fear they'll struggle when they inevitably lose Fyfe for 3 or so games
Not happy but it does not look unrealistic atm. Was hoping we could at least challenge for a low top 8 spot but injuries and presaeason form say no...

I'm a pretty pessimistic supporter but even in my darker moments haven't seen us finishing 5 positions below Brissie!

You’re probably correct.
Just think ADL and BRI with easier fixtures this season will be the big improvers!

Well just have to see.

Last year the logjam was between spots 5-12. This year according to my ladder predictor the top 7 will be clear and the logjam will occur in the top 4.

1-4 seperated by 1 game
5-7 seperated by 2 games
Then a gap of 2 games down to 8-10

Good ladder, I'd swap Essendon and Geelong.
Stating the obvious but both could make it or neither. No doubt there will be a few surprises through the middle of the ladder. Only the top 4 and bottom 4 can be predicted with any sort of confidence imo.

Holy shit you actually just compared Rance to Dunn

Hardly kiddo, they just play the same position. Unless you’re saying Rance doesn’t play full back?

Good to see at least 1 Collingwood supporter has some sense. Still not sure old mate I was replying to does though so I wouldn't mind some confirmation from them first.

Saying Dunn is a like for like injury loss to Rance is not the same as comparing them as players, that would be an incredibly simplistic takeaway from that statement.

Grundy's like for like injury comparison is Nankervis, does that mean Nankervis is on the same level is Grundy? No, clearly not. A bit of critical thinking wouldn't hurt.
