I'm going the cop out route and not doing any predictions until 3 or 4 rounds in, to see which sides adjust or are affected by the new rules the most.
Definitely a cop out lol. Be brave, have a crack :p

FYI the poll will close on opening night of the season.

I just want to be on the record and say that I have NFI who's going to win the flag, let alone how the whole ladder will look at the end of the season.

Most around here didn't have WC in the 8 in 2018. Now many have them to go back to back. Who the **** nows?

If you did know, I'd accuse you of owning a delorean.

3. Adelaide
4. Geelong
5. Collingwood
6. GWS
7. Sydney
8. Ports

9. Essendon
10. Melbourne
11. North
12. Brisbane
13. Hawthorn
14. Fremantle
15. Carlton
16. Bulldogs
17. GCS
18. St Kilda

- GF & Premiers: West Coast v Adelaide - West Coast Premiers.
- Brownlow: Adam Treloar
- Coleman: Josh Kennedy (Eagles)
- Port B&F: Robbie
- Port AA’s: Boak and Robbie
- Port most improved: SPP
- Port Rising Star nominees: Butters & Duursma

I put up the number of wins per position the last 3 years in the bumped 2018 thread last week and in that I listed what I think the average wins per ladder position would be. I had a crack at matching teams to average wins by adding the 2 columns to the left. Haven't looked at the draw other than what the double up games are for all teams.

Fluro Green teams that won 4 or more games than previous years
Red teams that lost 4 or more games than previous years

Gold = Flag, Green = PF, Brown = PF, Silver = Port

Looking at Port's draw theres 6 likely wins (Freo, Dogs, Suns, Carlton, Roos at home and Saints in China).

7 games that could go either way (Lions x2, Richmond, Giants, Freo interstate, Swans at home and Roos in Melb).

9 games which we'll struggle to win (Melb, WC, Pies, 2x Showdown, Hawks in Tassie, Cats at home, Tigers at the 'G, Bombers.

Say we win the 6, win 4 out of the 50-50 games, and pip 1 game we weren't expected to win and we're still 11-11 and not making finals.

The 45-55% win rate ceiling under Hinkley seems likely to continue.

We can't seem to lift ourselves out of that 6th-12th logjam zone.

Even the most optimistic of us who think we can finish top 4 would have to be performing mental gymnastics in how we're going to bridge that gap or where that spike in performance will come from.

However in saying that, the pieces are there, and I think it starts with our gutterball forward entries.

Imagine if Dixon's output was 50 goals in a year, Robbie kicked 35-40 and the Ryder/Motlop/Westhoff/Marshall/Gray types could chip in with 20-30 goals a year. I think our defence/midfield is passable, but our forward setup is a dogs breakfast.

If you look at the stats sheet thats how the Tigers' 2016-2017 and Pies' 2017-2018 performance spikes came from.

It could happen for us, unprecendented and unlikely, but possible.

"It seems like every year, Port Adelaide goes the opposite way most people expect them to.
So after the disappointment of 2018’s historic late-season collapse, should we be watching for a run at the 2019 flag? SEASON PREVIEW."

2015: Premiership
2016: Will bounce back
2017: Will struggle again
2018: Premiership contenders after recruiting well
2019: Will struggle since they lost two of their best players

im still going with richmond because it think with the 666 rules they have the cleanest hands out of the middle and are the most efficient team, add to that 2 finals at the MCG and they have a lot going for them

Interestingly, they were one of the worst centre clearance sides last year. Always had two coming in off the back of the square and would try to win the ball back after conceding the clearance. Cant do that this year.
