I had a horrible dream/nightmare last night that I was looking at the paper and Geelong was to play Collingwood in the Grand Final.

Lose/lose for me.
Chris Scott's a campaigner, but Eddie's a c***.
I love watching Collingwood lose in the Grand Final. 2018 was an amazing match made all that much better by who lost

1. Richmond
2. West Coast
3. Brisbane
4. GWS
5. Bulldogs
6. Collingwood

Then it gets interesting. I think Geelong could well slide out of the 8 this year. The loss of Kelly and Selwood's decline last year and the lack of a quality ruckman could see them miss. Hawthorn and Port Adelaide are a chance as are the Swans. I also think North are going to have a good year with Rhyce at the helm

I'll put
7. Geelong
8. Kangaroos

But those two positions are the ones up for grabs.

this time of year everyone has high hopes thats the best part

you just never know, the well the suns probably we do
One year fairly soon, the suns are going to jump out of the blocks and surprise the hell out of everyone... and I think it's going to happen in the next couple of years. They're building a fairly impressive list up there atm, but apart from being young and in experienced, they also have the travel issues...

well they played a key role in last year's premiership, does that count?

Too many concussions for Cam Mooney who has predicted the Demons go from 17th to premiers
Won't win it but probably won't come bottom 4 either. Happy to sort of say last year everything went wrong for them BUT my issue is the same as last year, their midfield is so slow! Can Petracca play mid the whole year? If not they are back to the mids that failed last year and that was with Gawn having his best year ever. Found the Dees the hardest team to pick, nothing would surprise me.

What about the other end of the ladder, just say Gold Coast actually have a better run with injuries this season and advance up the ladder a few places.

Who then will be say the bottom three? Not as easy as you think. I'm still mulling it over, hmm
