    No. Just no.
    They will not be finalists. They are crap.

    They had several key players that had only limited games in 17, and if they have any luck with those, which includes JOM, Birchall, Stratton, & Frawley, they'd have to be better. Same with us with our smalls.
    And ongoing improvement in Burton, Sicily and Hardwick gives them a potent Defence. 7-12 imho.

    They were 0-5 with those players in the side.

    Pretty shabby.
    You must admit they pushed us game 2, without Stratton who they would like on Danger, and showed great improvement. That 0-5 was beautiful to see but did not represent their latter form.

    They'll miss finals in 2018. They're cactus.

    I'd like to see them 9th every year for 9 years!
    No finals, no decent drafts..
    That won't happen though.

    I have a couple of big Smokey’s for 2018,

    Think melbourne is going to be a very hard team to knock over and will be pushing up there.

    Port Adelaide are at a perfect age to really push hard for the flag, also their top ups will help big time.

    St Kilda are also coming into a period where they should be pushing right there and about.

    Adelaide I have a question mark on since losing lever and Cameron plus smith ACL, could make things challenging losing 3.

    Will be an interesting year.

    Hawks won’t make top 8, pencil that in

    When you're looking at top spot though you've gotta pull out all the big guns.
    I'm even getting daily scalp massages as part of my training regimen.

    You and all your Richmond friends can keep coming over here to quote me and cause trouble.
    But I really don’t care.
    Thank you and god bless

    Agree port will be very tough to beat this year. I think the crows little run is done.

    Really thought how they pushed us to the very last seconds down at skilled in that arm wrestle of a match actually made me feel somewhat uncomfortable about potentially playing them again last year to be honest. Not many teams have been able to do that to us at skilled.

    They have A very good midfield that has underperformed a lot in my opinion, think this year their midfield will be the best it will ever be with this group, boak wines ebert Hartlett Polec Powell pepper Robbie Grey Sam Grey all rotating through a midfield is quite elite, plus paddy Ryder feeding it down... it is the best midfield in the AFL or equal best at that.

    I feel a bit the same except I think their downfall is Kenny's reluctance to drop underperforming players and instead he just gets tough on the fringe players to look like he's making a stand when they lose.
    Boak is just terrible and shouldn't even be in the side IMO, & Hartlett only tries about every 4 or 5 weeks along with a couple of others.
    I don't believe the coach & club is ruthless enough to drop some of these players, instead they'll just drop Sam Gray once a month.
    Because of this I don't think they'll improve a hell of a lot on last year.

    Not a bad comeback.
    Richmond supporters probably have the right to be a little cheeky for a while.:thumbsu:

    Don’t think Hinkley is a great coach at all, just an average one. Defensively he is a horrible tactician, he does not have the tactical nous as someone like Scott and Clarkson.

    But their list is very good, especially midfield.

    All at the right age and balance. If they are going to challenge it is this year for them.

    Either way I couldn’t care how they perform.

    Hawthorn. Always Hawthorn. We need to constantly remind them 1963 wasn't a fluke. Pound it into them.

    In preference:
    1. Hawthorn - it's always good to beat them;
    2. Richmond - to shut the ******* Tiger fans up;
    3. Adelaide - to avenge Finals
    4. Fremantle - just despise them, a close second to Poos+Wees;
    5. WCE - despise them too, equally with Fockers

    Although it would be death of me, I am desperate to see Geelong demolish (Port style) Poos+Wees in a GF - but it has to be a Geelong win!

    My hope too, Willo. It was so sweet to seek Hawks slide from third in 2017 to 12th in 2017!

    Want Geelong to flog them in the H&A + icing on the cake would be Hawthorn to finish 12th or lower (please)
