They say that football is a mental game, if that is the case the current Essendon playing list and coaching stuff must have the greatest resilience and mental strength in the game right now.
The AFL season opener is this coming Friday night, interestingly enough just a bit down the road from my house. I look forward to battling hours of traffic for an overpriced pie and a watered down West End.
Trying to assess the AFL season this year is a tough ask. Upsets and blowouts seem to be the norm while the ladder is as close as it could be.
If the AFL had a most improved player award, Karmichael Hunt would be a clear front-runner. Hunt is rapidly developing into a competitive footballer this season.
Greater Western Sydney will win more games this season then Gold Coast did last season. A big call, you might think. Crazy almost. Why am I making such an outrageous prediction?
