Hawks could get another belting tomorrow and then our next run of games could get messy. Can’t really be confident with how up and down we have been in games.

Cats, Swans, Demons, Bombers, Tigers, Lions, Suns, Magpies and Dockers.

Could quite easily go winless from here to the bye.

Hard to look past North I think - West Coast I think will compete enough in WA to win a few home games to avoid it and I think Port will go on enough of a run to avoid it.

5 rounds 5 teams with 75 %age or less

Those of us who forecast a large field for the spoon looking good

70plus percent of this polls votes got Coll haw Gold Coast who aren’t in the above 5 teams

So, are you trollers or just crap at this?

Reckon it's entirely possible the wheels fall of Collingwood and Gold Coast, less so Hawthorn. Likewise, it's entirely possible West Coast and Port Adelaide eventually get something of their shit together and move out of that bottom group. If Geelong win today, there will be a two game gap between seventh and eighth already. The Bulldogs you would expect to move up soon. The divide between the top half and bottom half might just be bigger this year.

Don't think Tarrant would help much.
Not a lot, no one player would likely get North up to 17th, but IMO last season him coming back was the difference between being 6-8 goals worse than the second worst team and being only 3-4 goals worse. The whole defence was a lot more stable with him.

Really agree with this.

Pies had a sugar hit with a new coach but they have serious underlying list issues that will take years to rectify.

Gold Coast still look incredibly brittle with too many blokes that aren't really AFL standard and way too much reliance on young Rowell and Anderson. It's concerning.

It’s pretty hard not to be crap at this? Anyone who from season to season pretends they knew exactly who would improve or decline or stay consistent is straight up lying.

I think Suns will be fine. Metricon becoming a very good home ground advantage and they'll win enough games up there to avoid a spoon. Wont win enough away to do much more than scrape out of the bottom 4 though I wouldnt think.

Really interesting start to the season with so many teams off to flyers (4-1, 5-0) and so many teams off to stinkers (1-4, 0-5). Pretty confident my prediction of Adelaide is dead wrong and on form, North could do the rare back-to-back spoon because Port and WC have too much quality to be this bad for the full year.
