Yes

Roos and Lyon are currently unavailable ?

Perfect conditions and they can only manage 10 goals. In 2017 that's 7 or more short. Season over.

They will beat some of the crap teams who turn it over too much but they're not competitive with the good teams. Supporters in Sydney are incredibly reluctant to turn up if the team isn't on a roll. That will hurt the bottom line and bring up discussion of a generational change.

The traditional response is to go with a name.

Barassi, Parkin, Hafey aren't available so that leaves Sheedy as their Messiah.

One wonders if Hannebury, Jack et al realise that the game has passed by Longmire and are not buying in to his ancient game plan. They're certainly not looking very sharp.

1993, last time they were 0-4, was 26 losses in a row.

Bit hard to keep a decent game plan going when the players turn the ball over so often.

Swans clearly in trouble. They haven't been able to get a decent player since Buddy. That deal could be considered good for 4 years only.

Not happy Mads.

I think censoring discussions re Matt Rendell is a great reason for changes to 18C.

As a non-AFL person, this is the crux

http://www.theage.co...0319-1vg7l.html

An indication of his skills he was quickly employed by another club. What he believes is that the demise of players like Harley Bennell is predictable. There needs to be a systematic change to the personal development of promising indigenous footballers in order to reduce the dramatic attrition rate.

Despite his well intentioned suggestions, The AFL and clubs continue to ignore the problem in the hope they will fluke an Adam Goodes.

Mouldy I found your deleted post pretty ordinary. I also think you are doing a lousy job of mopping it up.

or even all 0 and 5

 

they might all be in with a chance of a win in round 6, although for us round 8 looks to offer the most promising chance for a breakthrough win.

Can I take back my preseason prediction? 

 

What a strange season. Sydney, hawks wtf??  I still expect sydney to hit back hard and be at break even win/loss or thereabts at the halfway mark of the season. Hawks, what has happened there? We all expected the slide to begin this season but the last 2 weeks have been stunning.

 

Think the ladder flatters both the cats and tigs, difference being the draw will sort the tigs out as the season goes on, but the cats have a delicious run of games in geelong so even at this early stage look a monty for top 4 at least.

 

Adelaide look freaking awesome

 

GWS have shown glimpses and will no doubt build into the season nicely, still reckon theyll finish top

 

Doggies have done what they need to do to bank the early W's and will get better as the season progresses

 

Port have surprised me and look better than i thought they were.

 

Saints and Dees have improved but a finals berth is not assured like the preseason predictions would have you believe.

 

West coast are just going and in a season where speed is king, they probably wont be at the pointy end of the season, given they are pedestrian through midfield. 

 

GC have improved a bit, so too freo but both not in finals calculations.

 

Dons will struggle, so too the pies.

 

Blues are talking youth and inexperience to justify how putrid they are but there are several younger sides out there performing a lot better  which is concerning for them and amusing for the rest of us.

We're still encumbered with Mick's dregs. I think this year will be the third and final clear out of Daisy and others.

So given Georgey Boys prognostications above, it seems the final 8 will be a final four or so this year, and the rest just falling into the top 8, to make up the numbers in Week 1 of the finals series.

 

That sounds about right to me, and very few teams look to be any good at all at this early stage of the season.

 

It's really going to come down to the last 4 or 5 rounds I reckon to sort out the not so bad, from the slightly more bad ...... those  positions 5 thru 10 I reckon, unless things change for several teams.

 

I can't recall seeing so many teams that are really just ordinary at the moment, and that's probably due to a couple of good teams now seemingly joining their ranks, eg Hawks, Swans.

 

It could become a season where not so many wins still gets you a place in the finals, given the amount of plodders in the competition this year. It could even be another year where a surprise packet jumps up and wins, which would be good to see. :)
