GWS are a bit soft, and not sure how Shiel, Scully & Lobb leaving will affect them. Still the best of the three teams.

My guess is Scott will go the tank this season and get the pussies some nice draft picks (for once).

Sydney seem cooked to me- too much for too few.
Shiel couldnt hit the broadside of a barn in 2017.
Scull didnt play all year.
Lobb was a poor ruck and we have Mummy in.

With another year under the young brigade cant see us going backwards.

Sheil averaged over 25 disposals a game, 3rd in goal assists for the AFL last year and Top 10 for Inside 50's. He'll be missed.
Scully was a huge loss in 2018. It's not a stretch to say you'd have finished Top 4 with him in the side last year.
Mumford is an unknown. Fingers crossed he goes ok.

True, but you lost me when you said soft.

Geelong far too reliant on too few and will be in the bottom six. Sydney will be around the eight especially if some of their younger players (like Mills/Heeney) can finally reinforce the midfield. GWS should still be around 4 - 6 as long as they don't get too many injuries as they have a lot of class across all lines.

Next Geelong coach in waiting.... sooner rather than later I hope.
Scott is signed up as head coach for another 4 years.

I can see opposition clubs wanting to hire Scarlett as their head coach he's one of the highly rated assistant coaches.

Do you see Scarlett staying at Geelong as assistant coach for a few more years before succeeding Scott or will he want to become a head coach sooner and take up a head coaching position at another club.

lol.
Bottom 6 is 13-18.

We’ve never been there.
Won’t start in 2019

The reliance on too few part is correct, but that doesn't mean we will drop down that low.... We are a 6-9 team next year I think.....Reason's being is our elite talent ( Ablett, Selwood, Danger & Hawkins ) are still some of the best in the league, & in an even competition you can still get alot of wins with a group like that!...Depth is my club's biggest issue, & it has stopped us the last 3 years from actually making a GF!
