    Re: 2016 Predictions

    I never got around to doing this because I kept meaning to actually check the fixtures and the AFL refused to release the ladder predictor so now I'm cheating... Not a lot changed after this round though it's hard to not want to move Freo after that trash and the Hawks losing/Cats winning changes perspective a bit as well but will try and stick with what I was feeling beforehand...

    1. Hawks - Going to be super tough, I might change this if I was trying to revise rather than reflect preseason feelings.
    2. Freo - Ditto but this was my feeling after NAB.
    3. Sydney - Had a good feeling, I might bump them on the back of that win!
    4. West Coast - Think they could slip just a little this year, no good reason for it though and after the weekend that feeling is changing rapidly!
    5. Geelong - I picked them high last year and they fell apart, going again.
    6. Dogs - Would probably move up after the weekend if I was revising.
    7. Adelaide - Not sure what to take out of the weekend, I feel good they're better than North but they really shot themselves in the foot, over and over again!
    8. Port - Would probably drop them after the weekend but they're good on paper.
    9. GWS - Would probably flip them with Melbourne after the weekend.
    10. North Melbourne - Honestly from Freo on down is basically one big group where I wouldn't be surprised if they're outside the 8 so wouldn't be remotely shocked if North is much higher, they're grunt against the Crows was great.
    11. Melbourne - Like the look of them, would swap with GWS if revising because they did it in the real stuff.
    12. Richmond - Another team I have no idea about but the injuries early are going to hurt and their depth is weak. I actually think Hardwick does a great job with this list because they've got one of the weakest teams in every area on paper and yet he keeps getting them to the 8 so wouldn't write them off.
    13. Collingwood - Excellent midfield, though ball use a question, but they're terrible up forward and even worse down back, imo, and Buckley just keeps finding ways to undermine the team, Witts over Grundy must the most confusing selection of the weekend, they'd probably drop another spot or two with Swan gone and the way they played. I think they're still a shot at the 8 though which sums up how even this season is.
    14. St Kilda - Like what they're doing, they could push the 8 with a perfect run of health but think it's a long shot.
    15. Gold Coast - The start of the no hopers for me, just struggle to rate their list because the midfield is just really lacking but if they can get JOM and Swallow healthy sooner than anticipated that could change, adding two top end players in really changes things and Lynch, Thompson and May is a pretty damn good spine.
    16. Carlton - Going to really struggle to score but they're midfield is strong and I like what they've shown.
    17. Brisbane - Their best chance is a change of coach mid season at this point (this may be a revision based on Beams and the weekend!)
    18. Essendon - This is also a revision, I had Carlton 18th and Essendon 17th but they were just pathetic on the weekend, it was always going to go one of two ways, either a point to prove and some heart or let's just get through this year with as few bruises as possible and reload for next year, the team made a very loud statement they're taking option b on the weekend, was sad to watch.

    Well outside of Fremantle I'm pretty happy with these.

    Underestimated Gws, Adelaide and Geelong and over estimated Coll and Richmond hugely!

    Very likely nailed the coleman, brownlow and rising star trio though. Have a Dangerfield/Hawks bet going.

    Re: 2016 Predictions

    I did pretty decently also outside Freo...

    Hawks -2
    Dockers -14
    Sydney +2
    West Coast -2
    Geelong +3
    Dogs -1
    Adelaide +2
    Port -2
    GWS +5
    North +2
    Melbourne - Nailed
    Richmond -1
    Collingwood +1
    St Kilda +5
    Gold Coast - Nailed
    Carlton +2
    Brisbane - Nailed
    Essendon - Nailed


    Dockers were the massive error, GWS and St Kilda the other notable differences at 5 spots though both could easily have been higher on my list.

    I didn't post the award winners but I would have had Kennedy, Danger, Mills, Sydney and Fremantle RU if I had so looking pretty good there outside the obvious Freo fail.

    My ladder would have been something like

    Hawthorn -2
    Sydney +1
    West Coast -3
    Geelong +2
    Fremantle -11
    Port -4
    Bulldogs
    Richmond -5

    Adelaide +4
    North Melbourne +2
    GWS +7
    Collingwood
    St Kilda +4
    Melbourne +3
    GCS
    Brisbane -1
    Carlton +3
    Essendon

    Premiers: Sydney
    Runner up: Hawks
    Brownlow: Danger
    Coleman: Buddy, Gunston second
    Rising star: Mills


    If I'd been re doing it I'd probably have Collingwood & St Kilda lower and Melbourne higher.

    Don't count it for the prediction comp though outside of my player predictions.
    The mass overrating of Fremantle, Richmond & Port was matched by me underrating Adelaide & GWS. Had most of the contenders right and I'm calling the Brownlow now because it's the most obvious win since Cousins in the mid 00s.

    Could still get the Premiers as well. Providing Geelong don't spoil the show.

    To be fair, N29 also tipped Freo to be premiers!
