And what about the 15 years since?
It's usually 3 teams from the bottom 10, outside the top 8, who the following year come into the top 8. Happened this year and 2020. That's why it doesn't make a lot of sense to make a status quo tip and to be "brave". You guys would have been lolling at Collingwood being predicted as 4th in 2022, if tipped at the end of 2021.

Why?

If you look at it logically Collingwood fell away late in 2020 and still finished top 6 after being premiership favourites midway through that season on the back of a close Grand Final loss in 2018 and close preliminary final loss in 2019.

An off year in the Covid impacted 2021 and it was back to normality for the Magpies in 2022.

So 2021 was the brief exception.

I can see Port Adelaide doing exactly the same thing in 2023.

Show me one person who predicted Collingwood to be 4th in 2022, before the 2022 season started.

I can write history with the benefit of hindsight too.

Exception or not the fact is that they went out and then came back. That just proves what everyone else is saying. There are no guarantees and movement happens. Just because Collingwood went down doesnt mean they'll stay there for years and just as them going up doesnt mean they sit there for years. You may have already forgotten how many close games your side won. In another year you lose a few more of them and you are fighting for finals. Once Pendlebury and Sidebottom go ylu lose a fair bit of experience.

You can still get $101 on north, bombers and pies though.
Thought it was an aprils fool joke at 1st.
No brainer for $10.lol

I feel that the 5-11 region is very interchangeable.
