It shows the risky nature of future draft picks, but isn't it good to have that element of risk? It's great for the Saints and the Suns, but after so little success in the past or so-far, it's great for them. For the losers, particularly Hawthorn, it's about time they headed to the dungeon after an remarkable 3 decades of incredible success. All this says, trading future drafts is great and adds a bit of intrigue, spice and an ability to read future trends.
Made the selection for 1-7 but nothing comes up by the * saying required. How do I know if the vote I was putting in is counted?
Sorry Brendon, but you are way off. Looking at 2012-2015 when the ASADA pressure was mounting, these players held up well till the final half of 2015. They faced possible long suspensions, put out of finals, club sackings, coach suspensions, president resigning under huge emotional pressure. It was amazing they performed as well as they did.
Don't take the final score of 2015 as a reflection of these players' (or this teams') ability to make the finals. They may not take the competition by storm, but with perhaps 6 of the 10 returnees being regulars and the infusion of new blood, this teams' finals' indicators have risen drammatically. Expect them to finish somewhere between 6-10 in a season where the fight for finals' positions could be extremely tight. In the end, close results (under 9 points) will probably determine the order in that 6-10 range.
To put the Bombers as bottom 3 shows that you haven't grasped the significance of the Bomber's list, nor the many changes to the lists of teams like Geelong, Hawthorn, Collingwood and North Melbourne, which has the potential for substantial movements in ladder positions.
Three rounds in, and either you or I will have some confirmation, and perhaps justification, of the positions we have taken.
