Declare your allegiances now. As many of you know, I am a devoted Western Bulldogs fan. Born and bred only a mile from the Western Oval, father a past player. 2016 was the best year of my life.

Who's next?

As a Hawks fan I was quietly optimistic...right up until our best player broke his leg in pre season . Couple of months after a Brownlow- nothing takes you from the penthouse to the sh1thouse quite like sports.

Essendon to win flag
Brisbane to make the top 8 as the big improver this year.

Richmond, Collingwood, Geelong, West Coast, Melbourne, will all feature strongly again.

Essendon v West Coast grand final.
Essendon to win.

Essendon will make the top 4 on the ladder, for the next 5 years in a row.


Brisbane is the smokey team this year. They will win plenty, to finish around 7th or 8th.

The competition proper is getting kind of irrelevant to finding the premiers lately. The last 3 winners haven't been the best team through the season but the ones who caught fire in the semis.

Too tough to tip the winner of the flag this year

Richmond - Best team by far but will they choke again.

Collingwood - Over achieved last year, did a great job getting to the GF and should have won it, but oh well that's the way the cookie crumbles.

Essendon - Team on the rise, recruited well and should be a top 4-6 team, minus the supplements.

West Coast. - Great season but doubt they can back it up going by the past few years winners.

Sydney - Will be there abouts as usual but won't threaten for the flag.

GWS - Have great talent and development but a total waste of time in the AFL, soulless club.

Adelaide - Will go better this year but will be battling it out for a spot in the 8 at best.

Port - Too much jet skiing time, will be battling for a 8 spot at best.

Demons - Will be a top 4 challenger and could give it a shake in September.

Hawks - Talented across the park but doubt they can match the top teams at best.

Geelong - Rely heavily on two to three players, need others to step up.

Carlton - Keep sipping the lattes in Lygon street, talented kids coming through but how long will it take to develop.

Saints - Only spark they have is Billy Slater and he doesn't even play the game.

Freo - Already thinking about what excuses Ross Lyon will use this year.

Bulldogs - Talented kids coming through, future looks promising but they need the Bont firing.

Lions - I like what the coach is doing with these youngsters, building nicely for 2/3 years time.

Suns - Total waste of space in the league.

North Melb - 10th to 15th finish, anything better is a bonus

With my one brown eye and one yellow, I am crossing my fingers toes and legs that the Hawks can go well, but not confident.

The Demons are my early tip. They did well last year and the experience they gained will serve them well. My only concern is that they sit back wait for it to happen, but if they put the effort in they can win the flag.

Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

GWS and Gold Coast need to merge, and go to Tassie, to create the first Tassie side.
And the Tassie Government needs to build a high tech indoor boutique state of the art stadium, for just 25,000 people.
Pack them in, but make it the best indoor boutique stadium in australia.

Its not a bloody national comp without a tassie team

then darwin needs a team, and they get to play in alice and darwin.

but GWS and Gold Coast to merge first and go to Tassie.

The AFL won't abandon GWS for Tassie, to many people in Western Sydney for them to give it up for sn already AFL supporting stronghold.

Good luck, there aren't enough people to pack out a 25,000 seat stadium down in Tassie, heck they can't even pack out a 20,000 Hobart Hurricanes stadium when everyone had been talking them up for 4 days.

Flick Gold Coast altogether, they offer nothing and dilute the comp

Yes. Massive improvers this year.
The real deal.
Not a hype pick either. They really are the ones to watch this year.

Similar promo to the NRL one available here too. Lead by 12+ at the end of any quarter and you win. Haven’t done the stats on this one but suspect it will be just as juicy.

There are now multiple promos floating around the corporate world which suggest it is going to be a VERY profitable season.

BetEasy double winnings promo the easiest to arb and very juicy. Combine with the previously mentioned SportsBet promo as well as B365 up by 30+ at any time you win.

So this Jesse Hogan twat has been Stood-down as he flouted a club booze ban by drinking with school mates to celebrate his imminent club debut.
AND, somehow the AFL does another one of their smother jobs and calls it a mental health issue

Just watching the Richmond-Carlton pre-game.

Spent a little bit of time with Brian Taylor a decade or so ago, and thought what a big bugger he was.

Times change, because up against Matthew Richardson and Nic Naitanui he suddenly looks like a ruck-rover at very best.  Shocked

Geelong looks like they will be genuine contenders - a lot better with the injection of pace and the elite class and poise of Gary Rohan ...3,2,1
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

The ball is like soap.
They need to add the tiny bumps to the ball, like in gridiron and rugby even have it a bit.
Its unwatchable at the moment.
I watched last nights game with friends, they are rugby fans, and they said the ball is like soap and made for very bad viewing. I agree with them. They were dropping handballs directly put onto their chest.

The problem with the balls Redemption is that they are all brand new. The balls aren't getting kicked in which is making them slippery and a little harder to handle. they might have gotten a new ball each half or quarter. The ball gets easy to handle the more it is used.

Early days but it could be another season to throw out the formbook fro last year. Doubt there’s ever been an era with so much year to year change. AFL must be loving it.

Happy to stick with this all year.
Its early, but they play with enormous energy and passion.
They are effective in and around packs, and now have the footy smarts too, they dont panic, they set up and wait, clear to areas behind, transition, and if they muck up, no problems, they have about 6 players descending to make tackles.
Highly impressive.

Let me put it this way, you have to be on your A game to beat Brisbane this year.
If not, they will slaughter you.
