After r a slight delay to the podcasts this year, we are finally back on board.
After two games, a few things are obvious. Geelong are gone. Carlton are gone. Port Adelaide are a shadow of their former selves and will struggle against the top teams. North are going to be as inconsistent as ever. Richmond will finish close to the bottom 4.
On the positive side, Footscray are definitely on the up and up and will scare most teams. St. Kilda will win some games against more highly-fancied opponents even with NUTS still hanging around and the scary team of the year – as much as I hate to say it, is Essendon. Unless the wheels completely fall off the bus, they look like making the top 4.
