    Just looking to get a general view of where memebers from this board think we will end up on the ladder come seasons end.

    I personally do not see us as a top 8 team and would put us between 10-13.
    And although we have been very sloppy against Carlton in a praccy match, my prediction is not purely based off it.

    Don't get me wrong guys, I would love to see us in the 8 I just can't see it happening with all other teams "improving" as well.

    If that game was even a slight indication, we will be lucky to win 5 games. Looked like a team with no direction or structure, though I did see Richo there, he obviously wasn't involved in coaching. I can only hope things go up from here.

    we're about that stage in development where we need to get in a better coach - our game plan won't get us there. richo has all the qualities of a great assistant, but lacking the nous to take us further.

    Yes.

    Billings/Acres are our barometers.

    Clarke, Coff, Armo, Paddy, Gresh in the centre bounces, Sincs with more run, Membrey will improve, Billings will improve, we'll make the 8

    Mainly I think due to Coff and Clarke. Coff with 20 touches looked like a seasoned vet, clarke is very damaging, they will be the difference between us finishing just outside of the 8 or just in.

    And as highlighted by Cripps post game, Carlton set themselves to win that, we weren't so concerned with the result

    **** didn't Clark and Coff look good. I am very happy with what I saw from both I almost can't believe it. Could we have nailed 2 future stars @ picks 7 and 8 from what was a "Shit" draft year?

    Based on AFLX and Today's game, i'll say no.

    Our skills were appalling, forward 50 entry is a problem since last year, defense is not solid.

    Maybe, so much depends how much players like Billings can step up.

    I still have hope. Don't ask me how because I have no clue. But I really do feel like we can make the 8 with some changes.

    Billings will be fine. Was at a very good level last year, and will get better.

    The others you allude to like Acres, Dunstan, Steele I'm not so sure.

    Agree with this 12 wins max & will also depend on other sides seasons & injuries.

    Was the first hit out in 40km winds under shot lighting. Can’t expect polish! Had a massive advantage in those conditions at ikon park.

    Yes. We have a even spread of players and they around the right age and number of games. They need to find their own feet without Joey & Roo. It will all click into place sooner rather than later.

    I’m interested to know what our new ‘defensive strategy’ is... Never seen Robbo and Carlisle have so little influence on a game.

    Also if Gilbert, Weller, Wright or Lonie line up round 1 I’m throwing in the towel.
