Not open for further replies.
Well, we were hopeless prognosticators in 2023. Or maybe we got our tips right but the club just let us down. Anyway here's your chance to restore your reputation as a Footy Nostradamus. Just copy the table and post your predictions here. Or simply reply to the OP.

This thread will be interred on Thursday 14 7th March just before the Sydney-Melbourne game in Rd 0 starts the season. And it will be exhumed in about 12 months to examine the grisly remains of Season 2024.

Results for 2023 will be posted shortly. Not happy reading.

Well, we were hopeless prognosticators in 2023. Or maybe we got our tips right but the club just let us down. Anyway here's your chance to restore your reputation as a Footy Nostradamus. Just copy the table and post your predictions here. Or simply reply to the OP.

This thread will be interred on Thursday 14 March just before the Carlton-Richmond fundraiser blockbuster starts the season. And it will be exhumed in about 12 months to examine the grisly remains of Season 2024.

Results for 2023 will be posted shortly. Not happy reading.
