On what planet do you live on when a team is a Game clear in 4th after 8 rounds can't be considered? You might don't think they'll make it, but of course they can be "considered".Carlton can't be considered a top 4 side until they start regularly beating top 8 teams. Draw has been pretty soft so far. Lots to like however.
No. I am being a humble Dockers fan.Dees…look amazing.
Freo…wowsers. can’t see them falling out.
Bris… stars everywhere.
Blues…young guns and recruits shining.
Personally I can’t see a change from here.
No. I am being a humble Dockers fan.
As much as I love to see Freo getting top 4. I see them getting 5th or 6th.
Start of the season, I would be happy if Freo got 7th or 8th.
I won't complain if Freo finish 5th or 6th and win a home final.
Top 4 would be a bonus
Swans not going as well as many might think they are.Top 3 locked in. Geelong and Sydney both better than Carlton
Id be surprised if we made the top 4, we have played and done well against 2 most likely bottom 4 sides in recent weeks.
GWS away will be tough and they have regularly beaten us up in recent years, and Sydney are marvel the week after will be tough as well.
Realistically, we will probably drop one of them.
Still if we get to 8-4 we are doing very well.
Yeah, I only have Melbourne and Brisbane locks in my mind, which has been my view from start.Someone has to finish top 4. I mean Melbourne and probably brisbane are locks, but seems about 5 sides who could realistically be contenting for the other 2 spots.
top 3 is set, won't matter though because Dees look unbeatable
I only think Brisbane & Melbourne are locked.
Geelong have 2x WCE & 1x North to come, they would be the top seed out of the chasing pack just because of the draw.
Fremantle next in line, do have Melbourne, Brisbane to come but they will be very hard to beat at home at in Fyfe so they are the clear 2nd seed
Sydney have shown what they can do and can back up on last year. Friday night in 2 weeks Carlton v Sydney will be interesting and might flip then around third seed
Carlton - I still don’t trust them, think they will make the 8, however not yet top 4. I think home final would be a fantastic outcome for Carlton. But they are only going to improve as the players get use to the new gameplan, so who knows what they will be capable of in 10 weeks time. Fourth seed
St Kilda - we write teams off fast, last week they where a real chance to beat the Dees, they where horrible, yet they even it up after qtr time and where coming back from Cairns, so maybe not as bad as well all think. But as it stands fifth seed.
Richmond - think like last year they are still dining out on their dynasty, so we all think it’s going to click. They beat a horrible WCE, that will be beaten a lot & then a Collingwood that is up and down. Already lost to other top 4 possibilities Carlton, St Kilda, Melbourne. So they would be relying on everyone else stumbling to sneak in. Six seed
Realistically no1 else can make top 4
They've got the easiest draw in the afl. I'm pretty sure they play North and WCE twice. Talk about kissed.Nah Richmond are coming.
8th atm. Percentage booster next week and they will be 7th, possibly 6th. They can be the dark horse and if they win the next 3 can be in a very good position at the bye
They've got the easiest draw in the afl. I'm pretty sure they play North and WCE twice. Talk about kissed.
