So the dust has settled on another fantastic season of AFL football and the post-season reviews are starting to take place.

As a passionate Adelaide Crows supporter it is tough for me to write this, but as a football lover I have to. Grand finals in any sport should be between the two best teams in the competition.

Friday’s preliminary final between Sydney and Collingwood promises to be an enthralling contest.

Line-up changes are a hard thing to call, especially when a team is as deep into finals action as the Adelaide Crows.

With the AFL finals on us once again, the preverbal chatter around the water-cooler on how teams will fare has commenced.

The fantasy football season drew to a close this weekend and we all get to sit back and wonder where it all went wrong, or for the fortunate few, how did they manage to pull off the win and how can I do it again next year.

If you had asked anyone this six months ago, you would’ve been laughed at. But Adelaide have lost the least amount of games over the entire year, that is the pre season and the full home and away season thus far.

Eight finalists have been locked in and the most exciting thing about the upcoming weekend will be the race for the 2012 Coleman Medal.

He is now two years into his professional AFL career and it is time to once again assess Karmichael Hunt and whether he deserves $1.5 million for what he does, whatever that is.

The North Melbourne Football Club could be described as the parable of the 2012 AFL season.

Carlton’s 96-point thumping of Essendon has put the Blues just one game outside the top eight with two rounds remaining.

No team is going into this year’s finals series with more momentum than North Melbourne. The Kangaroos look to be the only team in recent years capable of winning the flag from outside the top four.

In recent times, AFL recruiters seem to be ignoring the performances of small players at junior level and overlooking them in the draft. But is there still a spot for the little man in the modern game?

Israel Folau’s first year in the AFL hasn’t gone exactly as planned. Folau was a solid contributor in the lower leagues last year, when he would, on occasion, kick four or five goals a game.

Is it too much for us to ask for a fair AFL draw? Surely if we want to have the best competition in the world we need to make sure our fixture is fair.

The last few weeks of the AFL season have reached a feverish level of intensity normally kept till the race for the finals.

I must say right from the start that I don’t think James Hird should be sacked as Essendon coach, but I find it odd that given the hysteria around Brett Ratten, no one has called for Hird to be sacked.

It was the match-up that could have decided the match – Matthew Pavlich (275 games and 546 goals) versus Daniel Talia (28 games and 20 years old).

Has Fremantle hit form at the right moment? Has the Ross Lyon gamble paid off? The Dockers are currently sitting in ninth on the AFL ladder, missing out on that top eight spot by just one percent.

He couldn’t win but he couldn’t lose, and it’s damn hard to play for a draw. Not tanking a game nailed one of many nails in Matthew Primus’ coaching coffin.
