You do this a lot... whatever club anyone supports does not change how valid their opinion is? It is actually such a dumb stance, your knowledge is not greater because you follow a club that does better than anyone. I have a good mate that is a north fan that I would value his opinion over whatever you post...
The person who I was having a conversation with, ended up deleting his posts. That should say enough. I bite back at trolls, there’s a difference.
Don’t like it? Mute me.

who cares who the team they support fares in finals... it does not take the validity of their critique away... please stop posting like this
There’s a way to have footy conversations on here. It’s not critiquing if you’re purposely trolling another club. Go back and read their drivel.

No I would prefer to call you out for it, you don't like it, mute me...

You don't actually make valid arguments, you just critique how their club went. Mine smacked yours, yet I am not using that against you as it's petty and I hated it being used against me when my club was bad.

Again, how the club you follow, does not show how much knowledge you have, if you think that I truly feel sorry for you. And unfortunate that you lose all your knowledge when your club goes down the ladder, weird how that would actually work...

no one is trolling you, you are reacting disproportionately. You shouldn't bite if you think they are trolling you but to say their team sucks, is a pretty average response, it says you have no actual valid arguments to what they are saying.

Please stop making up BS based on one post. This was the post I reacted to:

“Why bring it up then. Was it that the umpires deserted you this year or was it because you dogged it when they put the foot down ? Don’t answer that the image of Bontempelli, English and Treloar standing in the middle staring at the ground while the onslaught was happening speaks volumes.”

If you think that’s someone critiquing to have a good footy conversation on here, you’ve lost the plot sadly.

Whos team did I say sucks? Never said Sydney suck. Why would I? They finished 5th and beat us this year. I responded to a post about our midfield by then discussing Sydney’s performance in the final. Pretty clear cut.

If I say you I have seen you do it before, it is not just one post.

Again, you are saying I have lost the plot... this is not a valid argument, you seem to base yourself to personal attacks instead of actually focusing on the topic. Please stick to the topic.

Bont English and Treloar had their heads turned down going into 3q time. The commentators also noticed it, they also mentioned it post game. This is a) not a troll b) not an attack on you. You don't like it, tough, its facts. Their heads were down going to 3q time in a grand final, 24 points down. That is not a great look.

And yet you choose to ignore my other posts on bigfooty where I go hard on Macrae and Libba. I have a go at trolls and I have good footy chats to people who actually want to.

The topic is “ladder after round 23”. You’re in the wrong place if you wanna discuss how poorly our midfield was in the third. Stick to the topic.

How many more chances for Port & Geelong??.
Lions probably have 2 or 3 seasons left for a crack at it.
The Doggies flaws got massively exposed in the GF.
Most expect Richmond to cone again.
Sydney & Essendon could both rise or fall.
For me the Sleeper is the GWS.
They have pick 2 in the draft and have Geelongs 3 no.1's in their back pocket. They could do some serious trades with those picks.
Can't really see any of the bottom 6 jumping up.
GWS have no cap space surely. They would need to draft kids. Unless thry over pay with draft picks and get other clubs to cover salaries.

Ive grouped them:

Will play finals: Melbourne, Dogs, Port and GWS
A good chance of finals: Sydney,Brisbane,St.Kilda and Freo
Just miss finals touch and go: Richmond,Geelong,West Coast and Carlton
Next lot but could make finals but slim: Collingwood,Hawthorn,Essendon and North
Bottom levels of the ladder: Crows and Suns

So my ladder looks like this sort of:

Melb
Dogs
Port
GWS
Sydney
Brisbane
Saints
Freo

Geelong
Richmond
West Coast
Collingwood
Carlton
Hawthorn
Essendon
North
Crows
Suns

Can not split Carlton,Collingwood,Essendon and Hawthorn so ive got then right next to each other could be in any order for that matter. I just have Collingwood as top of this groups as im a Pies man thats all.
With cats,tigers,eagles just missing but will maybe spend some time in the 8 for some parts of the season though.
North will improve a tad along with the crows.
Suns for the spoon.
Both Saints and Freo to make finals for the first time in a long while. Just feel they are well over due for finals too.Both are on the way up.
Brisbane to drop off a tad but still make it.
Sydney will consolidate 2021 and make it and improve on their 2021 season.
GWS will shake off 2021 and re bound likly top 4 also Swans can make top 4 too.
Port should make top 4 too but need it to count in the finals this time.
Both Melbourne and the Dogs are the current front runners and should be top 2 in 2022.

Yeah just shut up mate. Condemn my posts but let the other guy run wild. He's been sooking about Hannebery getting hit in the thigh in every Bulldogs thread since 2016 thinking it cost them a grand final lol.

Where i'd expect them to finish next year.

Melbourne 1-4
Port 1-6
Geelong 1-10
Brisbane 1-6
Doggies 1-4
Sydney 1-8
GWS 4 - 12
Essendon 6-12
West Coast 4-12
St Kilda 6-14
Fremantle 6-14
Richmond 4-12
Carlton 6-12
Hawthorn 8-18
Adelaide 10-18
Gold Coast 10-18

12.St Kilda
13.Fremantle
14.Hawthorn
15.Adelaide
16.Collingwood
17.North
18.GC
Having enough trouble myself doing these predictions in February, I can only admire the courage of those willing to have a go before clubs' 2022 playing lists have been finalised. That said I don't mind the look of your early stab at it. Main difference I have with it is I think the Blues can jump up into the lower half of top 8, probably in place of GWS. I think Carlton have got all the pieces: good spine, solid if unspectacular pair of rucks, good depth in defence and improved depth in the midfield. Of course whether can put the jigsaw together and instil some badly needed mental toughness remains to be seen. I agree with the concept of first part of your post, using range of positions, as luck with injuries and how the fixture plays out( in terms of actual 2022 form as opposed to 'on paper' hard/soft draw appraisals based on 2021 form) will have a big say in finishing positions in that group from 6 down to 13.
