    Premier: Richmond
    Runner-up: Collingwood
    Minor premier: Collingwood
    Wooden spoon: Gold Coast
    Team/s to rise: Brisbane, Adelaide
    Team/s to fall: Geelong
    Brownlow Medal: Dunno
    Coleman Medal: Ben Brown
    Rising Star: Dunno
    AA smoky: J Higgins (dunno)
    Best recruit: Dunno
    Worst recruit: Dunno
    Biggest shock: New rules don't actually make the game 'better' - whatever 'better' means
    Biggest controversy: Ablett is rumoured to be causing division at Geelong, which is actually just a BS story and Ablett takes the media to court for defamation. The fallout leads to long overdue change in the way football media works.
    Certainty: Scoring will be high in the first few rounds, making it look like the rule changes were a 'success', then it will drop off like it usually does through the middle of the year and the cycle will continue.
    Impossibility: Robert Walls tips West Coast to win the spoon

    Yeah me too. Game should be a sellout and I reckon both teams will play fast high scoring footy next season.

    If Daniher comes back right it could be an old school shoot out with both teams having big key forwards kicking a bag.

    Certainty: 80%+ of posters on Bigfooty thinks a small/medium lockdown defender from their team should be in 'AA considerations'
    Impossibility: Rule changes receive positive or neutral coverage despite being benign or somewhat positive for the game
    Other: The football media and thus the general public make incremental advancements in their understanding of modern football (do we like football being a game of 'systems' rather than individual players?)

    I think it's more a matter of how much they whinge when balanced against how little reason they have to whinge that annoys people.

    WC fans were spoilt children growing up, i witnessed the WC home games in the early to mid 90s and couldn't believe the ride they got off the umps, everything went their way, i know they copped a sweet deal in later years but those years were something else, those years are what spawned the current day 'Boo' IMO.

    Around 60,000?

    To be fair, many people boo sometimes...that number are just those who will boo for 2 hours straight...even when they're winning.
