Rate every clubs season from A-F. Feel free to provide insight, though I'd recommend sticking to your own side unless you want to be flamed.

Brisbane - Still in it

Carlton - C

Collingwood - Still in it.

Essendon - Still in it.

Fremantle - C.

Geelong - Still in it.

Adelaide - E ... Adelaide could be a good student if only he applied himself. Hard to imagine that Adelaide supporters would feel that their expectations have been met.

Carlton - B- ... after a miserable start to the season, Carlton sacked their coach, started winning games of footy, and appointed a coach who is popular with the fans. I doubt that there would be any cohort of fans in the AFL who would be more excited about 2020 than Carlton fans ... and for a club that was never expected to make finals this year (and hasn’t) then that’s probably the next highest praise. After all, that’s what footy clubs are all about isn’t it - excitement about the future? But Carlton will need to start delivering - not going to be so charitable in the marking next year.

Fremantle - C ... Freo are in a bit of limbo now. It probably seems more of a limbo than if they hadn’t just sacked their senior coach and CEO - they moved up a grade for admitting that they have a problem and doing something about it.

Gold Coast - D+ ... started the season defying everybody’s expectations and for most of the season looked like they weren’t going to win the wooden spoon, but then they settled down into being the whipping boy. They’re in development, and develop they have, so they get a pass mark (just)

Hawthorn - B ... did amazingly well and as always defied everybody’s expectations except for those of their fans who have simply become used to success.

Melbourne- F ... Self explanatory

North - B- ... see Carlton.

Port - D ... see Adelaide

Saints - B+ ... got the season off to a cracking start despite injuries. Sacked the coach when they started going down the tubes, and (unlike others) resisted the temptation of signing up a caretaker coach going through a dead cat bounce.

Sydney - C ... their fans will be trying to fathom what “no finals” means and when they finally figure it out they won’t be happy.

We were meant to finish 14th or 15th, so Id say definite B+ for Hawthorn.

Carlton were meant to rise towards finals, so Id say C-.

Melbourne obvious F.

Both SA clubs get a D.
