They will finish at least 3rd and will create an all-NSW GF also Adelaide will just make it to the 8.

My take on the AFL ladder for 2017

Freo won’t be 15th, they will be the very at least 7th also Swans will finish Top 2 along with Hawks and North will finish just outside the 8 and Melbourne won’t make the 8.

My take on the AFL ladder for 2017

Derby Grand Final Predicted here with West Coast destroying Freo 133-59.

AFL preview series: Fremantle Dockers

They defiantly won’t be exposed in Finals, they will very at least be Runner-Ups.

AFL preview series: Fremantle Dockers

I would have Dogs 7th and Freo 3rd.

How your AFL team will fare in 2016: Western Bulldogs

Would love to see Melbourne in the 8 for 2016 after where they finished in 2015 but Sydney and Fremantle will both be unstoppable in 2016 and will make it to the Grand Final. Hawthorn will finish 3rd based purely on Jarryd Roughead’s Injury and timeline of Injury and West Coast 4th.

2016 AFL preview series: Melbourne Demons

Remaining Teams:

6. Bulldogs
5. Geelong
4. North Melbourne
3. Port Adelaide
2. Hawthorn
1. West Coast

Sydney won’t finish that low so have them in 4th and have North Melbourne 8th.

How your AFL team will fare in 2016: Fremantle

Channel Ten’s Melbourne Cup and A League dreams are ruined.

Mel McLaughlin moves from Channel Ten to Channel Seven

Can I assume that Freo will be the next team you will analyse.

Here are the remaining teams you should analyse in order:

7. Bulldogs
6. North
5. Geelong
4. Port
3. Fremantle
2. Hawthorn
1. West Coast

How your AFL team will fare in 2016: Sydney

Freo will be in GF in 2016. I am not joking!

How your AFL team will fare in 2016: Sydney

Provided that Seven’s TV Rights for Melbourne Cup Carnival or Australian Open Tennis tournament turn sour.

The next A-League TV deal should not be about money

When you Forecast Fremantle and Hawthorn’s Season could you please put Fremantle 3rd and Hawthorn 2nd?

How your AFL team will fare in 2016: Richmond

Here is a fresh Ladder, Finals awards Prediction List for you:

Ladder:

1. West Coast – Great Team with a great list (Including Natanui, Priddis and Kennedy) and is currently the most defensive side in the Comp.
2. Hawthorn – Currently the Premier Side in the Competition and will be aiming for 5th Straight GF and possibly 4 Straight Flags.
3. Fremantle – Classy Side but not quite in the same league as Hawthorn and West Coast, but with the loss of McPharlin and the gaining of Bennell, I can see them creating Club History
4. Sydney – Great Side and will have a similar year to 2013 though without Goodes and Jetta.
5. Port Adelaide – Plenty of Class though being without Ryder and Monfries and also produced a late Season Surge.
6. Western Bulldogs – I think they will produce a follow-up season to 2015.
7. North Melbourne – Has a lot of players that have tasted September success such as Harvey, Petrie, Dal Santo and Waite and has made Preliminary Final 3 Times (In 1997, 2014 and 2015) from Bottom Half of 8.
8. Collingwood – Will not want to miss the Finals 3 Years in a Row after being Finals Bound Mid Season.

_________________________________________

9. Richmond – Can’t see them in Top 8 reflecting on their last Three Finals Campaigns and also have not finished in that position on the Ladder for nearly a Decade.
10. Geelong – May have gained Dangerfield but I still can’t see them in Top 8.
11. Greater Western Sydney – Were finals bound mid season but suffered injury crisis and still not ready for September action.
12. Adelaide – Has a harder Draw though having a wonderful year following the death of Coach Phil Walsh and will drop off.
13. St Kilda – A lot to like about the Saints as they are currently in rebuilding stages and is also young and upcoming
14. Gold Coast – Had a poor Season 2015 and will finish lower if Ablett misses out on much of season.
15. Melbourne – Had a average season in 2015 and same thing will occur in Season 2016 though young and upcoming as well.
16. Essendon – Will finish Bottom 3 as 34 Past and Present players have faced Suspension for Season 2016.
17. Carlton – Will soon rebuild under a coach who has a wonderful record.
18. Brisbane – Certainties for Wooden Spoon due to the loss of Aish, Leuenberger and Redden, but will soon climb back up the ladder.

2016 AFL season forecast: Where will your team finish?

Who do you follow?

2016 AFL season forecast: Where will your team finish?

My Predictions for the next TV Rights Deal:

Seven & Fox will continue to Screen AFL Matches, Finals, Grand Finals & Brownlow Medals
Ten will screen SANFL, VFL & WAFL Matches (1x per round) as well as Finals & Grand Finals.

Bring on the 2017 AFL media rights deal

2x Saturday Night

Bring on the 2017 AFL media rights deal

The Best thing about the 2017 AFL TV Rights would be Time Slots such as 1x Friday Night, 1x Saturday Afternoon at 1:40pm, 1x Saturday Afternoon at 2:10pm, 1x Saturday Twilight, 2x Saturday Afternoon, 1x Sunday Afternoon at 2:10pm, 1x Saturday Twilight at 3:40pm & Sunday Night at 6:40pm. Any Rounds that has Thursday Night AFL will be at 6:40pm & only have one Saturday Afternoon Game at 2:10pm.

I do enjoy the Sunday Night AFL.

Bring on the 2017 AFL media rights deal

To me, I would prefer if Fremantle plays Adelaide in Perth & West Coast plays North in Hobart & Sydney plays the usual GWS & Collingwood plays Gold Coast. I would not want to see both the Expansion Teams play in the 1st Round together. If Hawks play Geelong in the First Round, I would like to see the Hawks next five games contain Bulldogs, St Kilda, Brisbane, Adelaide & Carlton.

My proposal for Round 1 of the 2015 AFL season

I think this is a very good opportunity for Network Ten to screen the Super Rugby Tournament. Ten already has the Wallabies Rugby Union TV Rights as well as the Big Bash Cricket League & V8 Supercars TV Rights. Ten has lately missed out on the Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival, Australian Open Tennis & Australian Masters Golf TV Rights & more recently The Hopman Cup Tennis, The U.S. Masters & Australian PGA Golf Tournaments & Seven might retain the AFL TV Rights or even Share the AFL TV Rights with Ten & Seven might also retain Wimbledon Tennis TV Rights.

Now Ten must look to the TV Rights to the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race , the Australian Masters Golf & the 2016 Rio Olympics TV Rights which are all up for Grabs in 2015.

Network Ten wants Super Rugby

Network Ten wants Super Rugby

Will the Perth 400, Auckland 500, Ipswich 400 & Tasmainia 400 races be Broadcasted on Free To Air in Full?

This TV Rights will see Ten become the Place for all the Motorsport Action with Formula 1, Moto GP, V8 Supercars & the Rally Championships.

New V8 Supercars broadcast deal is a blow to traditional fan-base

Great News! Ten is definitely the home of Motorsports & now after taking the Twenty 20 Big Bash Cricket Tournament TV Rights, they must now look to the TV Rights for the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, Wimbledon Tennis, 2016 Rio Olympics & Australian Masters Golf which all comes up after 2015. Shame that Ten missed out on the Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival & the Australian Open & Hopman Cup Tennis TV Rights.

Fox Sports and Ten to share V8 Supercars rights from 2015

This is a great move for Ten taking out the V8s Supercars TV Rights after Winning the Twenty 20 Big Bash Cricket TV Rights. It was a shame that Ten missed out on the Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival, Australian Masters Golf & Australian Open Tennis TV Rights. It was also a Shame that Ten dropped the Hopman Cup Tennis TV Rights. Ten is definitely the new home of Motorsports!

The Sydney to Hobart Race, Wimbledon & Australian Masters Golf TV RIghts come up after 2015. So, which of these events interests Ten?

Back to the future as V8s return to Ten

Paul Roos will be a great first choice for Melbourne if not, either Rodney Eade or John Worsfold or Even Gary Ayres. Mark Thompson will be a great first choice for West Coast.

Why Roos must be the next Demons coach

This will not be the end for Channel 9 & Cricket because on Tuesday June 4 The Announcement will occur & the New Cricket TV Rights will say that Channel Nine will continue to Screen the International Cricket (Although there will be no Tony Greig & Bill Lawry) & Channel Ten will Screen the Big Bash League.

Is this the end for Channel 9 and cricket?
