Yep, and an excellent list still remains. Reckon it’ll be like how a lot of people wrote WCE off for the 2018 season.

will await the fixture.

Who we play in the NT is very important. If it's GCS and Freo we can pencil in two wins. If it's Brisbane and Port not so sure. As we saw from last year every game is important when it comes to final positions.

1. Richmond (still probably the best team last season, just had 1 off night. Now has Lynch

2. Collingwood (Made the granny last year with injuries all season. Now has Beams for extra depth)

3. WCE (towelled us up badly and doesn't lose home grade advantage)

4. Essendon (I predict a big rise up the ladder. Came home strong in the 2nd half of the season and now has Shiel who is a massive inclusion.

5. Melbourne - Lever to miss the start of the season will hurt. Much also depends on Vineys ability to be injury free. Didn't add to our lack of foot speed through the trade period so Hunt needs to be best 22. If he isn't, Frost needs to replace Oscar Mcdonald so we have at least 1 player who can break lines.

So you are saying KK is not faster than Tyson? Or May is not faster than OMac /Lewis. Not sure of Preus over King/ Filipovic/Pederson. I think we have added speed and quality but lost a terrific forward (but I think we have a few)

Not underestimating Jesse’s value, but IIRC we did win more big games without him than with him.

Predicting a very rough year for the interstate sides,  bar West Coast and Brizzy who are chock full of talent and competitive and ready for a big rise.

Hope I am wrong on Essendon and Geelong.

 

1.  West Coast
2.  Melbourne
3.  Richmond
4.  Collingwood
5.  Essendon  (this one hurts)
6.  Hawthorn
7.  Brisbane
8.  Geelong  (average team aided massively by their home ground advantage)

9.   GWS   (exodus, depth smashed to bits, window is shut)
10. Kangaroos
11. Port Adelaide
12. Sydney
13. Adelaide
14. Western Bulldogs
15.  St Kilda
16.  Fremantle
17.  Carlton
18.  Gold Coast

I've never tried one of these, but here goes...

1. West Coast

2. Richmond

3. Melbourne

4. Essendon

5. Collingwood

6. GWS

7. Hawthorn

8. Adelaide

9. Port Adelaide

10. Sydney

11. North Melbourne

12. Geelong

13. St Kilda

14. Brisbane

15. Fremantle

16. Bulldogs

I reckon Essendon are going to do a lot of damage next year and I think Sydney, despite their record, will take a tumble.

I'm not thinking too much about where I think we and everyone else will finish at this point (might as well throw darts at a board or play pin the tail on the donkey to some extent).  But I do know where I want us to finish and that is simply top 4 as a starting point.  In all my years as a supporter (post 86), I don't recall us finishing above the equivalent of 4th (i.e. with a garenteed double chance and potential week off prior to the prelim).

I don't think it matters so much to finish 1st or 2nd, unless it ment finishing below that meant an interstate trip first week of finals.

I think this article is interesting in the present context.

AFL fixture 2019: How weighted fixture helped Collingwood, North Melbourne in 2018 and who it will impact most in 2019

https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-fixture-2019-how-weighted-fixture-helped-collingwood-north-melbourne-in-2018-and-who-it-will-impact-most-in-2019/news-story/d61d171a77108a94459b7f31d3efb9f8

 

Honestly though, I think the draw is only important to the weaker teams.  If we are a good side, then we should relish the opportunity to play top teams, because we give our selves a better than even chance of beating them.  I think it is also a double edge sword in that respect, in so far as playing other top sides gives you an opportunity to deny them a win and push them down the ladder.  I don't think a tough draw did Richmond any disservice this season.  Biggest thing to be gained with an easy draw is having a bit more tolerance in the case of form slumps and injuries etc.
