I noticed. Another young player who really deserved the award as well

My take on Round 22 of the AFL season

That is true, but which team would have arguably had more success with Buddy in your opinion? We know of the Swans success, but could Buddy have pushed GWS over the hump?

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

Yeah I feel they would have definitely won the premiership in 2016 with Buddy, and as a Swans fan I reckon you would be happy with Buddy not being with GWS

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

Hi Jack, thanks for the comment. This is definitely another article I have thought of. It would have been interesting to see Josh Kennedy stay at Carlton, and to see the trade re worked. It’s definitley one of those big what if moments. West Coast have seemingly won the trade long term

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

It’s disappointing how many players dropped out of the match, however there were still a variety of young NBA talent on the USA team and the Aussie team is no pushover. However, I was disappointed to see the seating troubles and the fact that Simmons dropped out

Boomers vs USA fiasco an insult to Aussie basketball

Hi Boo, yeah Buddy would have definitely been great for the marketing of GWS, definitley bringing in more of the Sydney fan base and the rugby coverts who are looking for an AFL club to get into this great sport

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

The Ablett Jnr one is definitley one I am going to look at writing. He wasted so much time at Gold Coast, would be interesting to see how they went with Ablett during arguably the majority of his prime years which he wasted at Gold Coast

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

It would be interesting to see how Cameron goes until his contract runs out, but Lyon could do something special with the team if given the chance, as he has a good record. However, the one thing that Lyon has not been able to acquire is a premiership

Why Ross Lyon would be a perfect Giant

Hi Charlie, thanks for the comment. He may have not been a good fit, but it is interesting to look at what a big presence he could have been for their club. What other what if articles would you also like to see?

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

Hi Mark, thanks for the comment. Why are you glad he did not join GWS? He could have been an incredible fit, but it could have also stopped other forwards from being exposed. But do you think they could have won a premiership with Buddy?

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

If you guys liked this article, I was thinking of doing more like it. What other what if scenarios would you like to see talked about?

What if Lance Franklin had signed with GWS?

Yeah we were definitley robbed in 2010. Would have loved to have seen Nick lift the cup, those were some happy yet emotional years

Tips and thoughts: AFL Round 23

I follow St Kilda, so no allegiance to any of the finals teams or teams I spoke about in this comment

Tips and thoughts: AFL Round 23

I feel like North will definitely beat Melbourne, but Port will be a chance to choke their last game against Fremantle like they have been choking in important games all season.

I see Brisbane as a major chance to beat Richmond, but Richmond will likely win it.

Most interesting clash is West Coast v Hawthorn in my opinion

Tips and thoughts: AFL Round 23

If they slip into the 4th position they will definitely cause some grief in the finals

Are the Magpies flying under the radar?

Collingwood are definitely a team which can make some serious noise in the Finals, they were in the top 2 of the standings for the first half of this season, and I expect them to pick up some form in the Finals series. Definitely an underrated team that is flying under the radar

Are the Magpies flying under the radar?

Brisbane have been really good, really liked the way they’ve been playing and they have been underrated all year. However, Richmond at the MCG will be a major challenge. It’ll be a great game to watch

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

I think a few teams will definitely be exposed come Finals time, but it’s one of the closest finals in recent memories. It will be great, I cannot wait

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

Geelong are pretty shaky, but still a solid team. Just have been inconsistent after the bye. And I thought the lion train would die early in the season, but yet here we are. Can’t count them out

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

I think it’ll be closer by that, I’d say Richmond this round by about 18 points? Can never underestimate the Lions this year, they have proven the doubters wrong week after week, the win last week being a big one

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

Yeah I definitely have the Eagles as my pick, but the Tigers vs Lions would be a great grand final. Would also love a Bulldogs vs Lions grand final, as unlikely as that would be. I really hope the Lions take it, but my money is on the Eagles

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

Hi Jakarata, thanks for your comment. Finals will be extremely unpredictable, and while I gave it my best, these predictions will no doubt be wrong in some way. However, I could see GWS or Essendon stealing a game, more so GWS than Essendon purely because of the list they have, and Essendon being plagued by injuries. I am really excited for Finals this year and cannot wait to bring them on.

Who would you have as your potential pick for the premiers this season?

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

Hi Desman, I do agree that their are other teams outside of the top 4 that can definitely make a run at it. Bulldogs are definitely my dark horse and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them in the grand final.

GWS (while out of form) and Collingwood are also solid teams outside of the top 8. However, I do feel injuries plaguing both Essendon and GWS will cost them. I am really liking the Bulldogs tho.

I’d love a Brisbane v Western Bulldogs grand final

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

Hi Bill thanks for your comment, and yeah I have no allegiance to any of the Finals bounds team, I’m a St Kilda fan myself just waiting for the day we sign on Brett Ratten, as the Ross Lyon firing has me nervous. But yeah definitely take it one game at a time, however the Eagles and the Lions are the only Finals teams I think that have been consistent all year. But the Doggies and Richmond certainly are in form. And you can never rule out the Cats. Will be tight

AFL finals predictions heading into Round 23

Richmond have had a difficult fixture, I do not think any of their games in this run have been easy. They have definitely earned their way to the finals and will hopefully be just as excellent during their Finals run and keep up the good form. The game against Brisbane this week will be massive
