Predictions for 2011

After looking at my predictions for 2010, I was thankful that I got at least a couple right, even though my main ones concerning the Premiers were waaayyyyy off the mark. Who would have thought that Collingwood would do that in 2010? I would venture to say that not even the most ardent Collingwood fan would have expected the year they had.

I was right with Judd winning the Brownlow but pity Murphy and Gibbs didn’t do much.
I was also right with the prediction that someone would test postive a 3rd time to illicit substances.
I was wrong on much of the make-up of the final 8 and obviously a number of other things as well.

Here are my predictions for 2011. Please feel free to add your own in the comments section and we will see how well everyone does at the end of the year.

EXPLOSIONS PREDICTIONS 2011.

Carlton
Hawthorn
St. Kilda

Biggest Issue

The bitch-fight that will surround the awarding of TV Rights for 2012 onwards.   Foxtel will be the major winner and will out-bid Channel 7 for live Friday night footy, with Foxtel then on selling the rights to Channel 7 rights to replay the game in Melbourne at 11.00pm.

Major Surprise:
Liam Jurrah kicking 75 goals to finish 2nd in the Coleman

Biggest Disappointment:

Bryce Gibbs not living up to his reputation.

Will Malthouse coach Melbourne or Carlton?

Melbourne will make him an offer first. Malthouse will not allow his long-standing detestation of Carlton take Ratten’s job.

Biggest Name that GWS will sign.

Scott Pendlebury who isn’t that much of a big name really.   Apart from that, they may be lucky to get Jack Watts in a chook raffle.
