2 years ago many would've been putting Port Adelaide on lists like this. There's really no way to know who will rise and who will fall.
Most of us struggle to pick 9 winners each week, and yet think we can predict events like this.

Don't get me wrong, I like guessing as a bit of fun, but the reality is none of us have the slightest clue.

To be fair, people have been successfully predicting bottom teams from the less successful Victorian clubs for years.

I don't think Brisbane will unless it is this year. The AFL will help them out.

That's a bold prediction you would have to see richmond, st kilda and brisbane all pick up 4-5 wins
And Melbourne, carlton, GWS and the bulldogs to all win 3 games and this is assuming the bombers lose every match
If the bombers win this week it would be almost impossible though

Unless we're tanking, I don't think we'll "win" it this year, as Brisbane have just fallen off a cliff since Johnno Brown went down and it's hard to see them getting up again before the end of the year, whereas we steadied the ship a bit last week and now have a good chunk of our best 18 or 22 coming/due back from injury at last, over this next couple of games (eg. Montagna, Hickey, Dunstan, Schneider, Stanley, maybe Fisher), just as we have two of this year's biggest "disappointments", in Richmond and Carlton (both at Etihad). Win either of those games (far from a certainty, but a decent chance), or our game v WB, or our other game v Richmond, later in the year and I think Brisbane get the spoon.

Both clubs a huge chance next year as well, especially if we do what we've done in the past couple of years and offload another Goddard/Dal Santo/McEvoy type (or two), to get some more early/earlyish draft picks, on top of probably Lenny retiring.

After that it is anyone's guess!
