I guarantee we'll be better next year if Gunston and Sicily both return to the side for 23 rounds. 8 wins* this season was our best case scenario.

New game plan, stars back and our best kids entering their prime. I'm anticipating between 8 and 11 wins.

*We won 7 games and had 2 draws, finishing on 32 points. Technically 8 wins in a ladder sense.
Hawks supporters are blind to it… still one of the oldest lists… might get better by a bit but nowhere near enough to be a threat… not doing anything with trades and picks… future of mediocrity.

Isn't that what I said? Two of our best players to return to a side that finished 14th off 8 wins*. Why wouldn't the expectation be a bit of an improvement? The fact we haven't been able to make serious moves at the trade table only strengthens that view because we won't suddenly be missing senior players to get games into inexperienced kids.

In 4 years time we could be stagnating because of it, but that isn't what this thread is about.

Also feel free to calculate our list age. You'll be surprised once you remove Burgoyne, Hartley, O'Brien, Brooksby and likely Ceglar.

I reckon we'll bounce back into the 8 next year reasonably comfortably. A lot of key players missed chunks of games this season.
Balta missed 8
Broad missed 8
Cotchin missed 5
Edwards missed 6
Lambert missed 9
Lynch missed 4
Martin missed 7
Nankervis missed 6
Prestia missed 13
Vlastuin missed 10

Astbury now retired missed 5
Houli now retired missed 10

That's a lot of our best dozen players missing games.

They made the finals off a win in R3?

I would have thought it had a lot more to do with the fact that 7 of their 11 wins came from their 8 games against the bottom 5 teams (who we got to play just 5 times). Against the remaining 12 teams they won just 4 games.

We won 5 of our 6 games against the teams they got to play twice (with the only loss being our 9 point loss to Sydney, at the SCG), while they won just 2 of 6 against the teams we played twice, so if you switch the draws around, and we’d gotten to play 10 games against the teams we went 5-1 against, and they’d had to play 10 against the teams they went 2-4 against, we most likely finish at least two wins ahead of them.
Do you want to flip around the 75 point hiding we gave you or na?

I reckon Collingwood can make finals in 2022 its got a good feeling about the place since graham wright has come back too. I think Geelong will miss and West Coast.In comes GWS and Saints. Dont think richmond will make it for some reason depends all on Dusty he packs up and they will miss finals its all depends on Dusty. And Carlton Essendon and Hawthorn will miss again.
With the Pies they need to be mostly injury free for the bulk of the season to be a chance of finals though thats the key.

People are absolute silly people if they think Geelong won’t make the 8, you have had 10 years to get this right people
Cats will make the 8, but age is not their friend and they are likely to be in decline from their form over the last couple of years.

It's very hard for me at this point. Think there are some clear tiers though.

1. Melbourne
2. WB

3. Brisbane

4. Sydney
5. Port Adelaide
6. Geelong
7. Essendon
8. GWS
9. Fremantle
10. Carlton
11. St Kilda
12 Richmond

13. Gold Coast
14. West Coast
15. Adelaide

16. Hawthorn
17. North Melbourne
18. Collingwood


Really only convinced about the top two and maybe brisbane in third at this stage, as well as the bottom three. Very unsure about the rest as most will be looking to make pretty big improvements on 2021.
