AFL 2007 -who will be the improvers and fallers.?
Bulldogs; hate them as a team but with Rodney Eade as coach and signing some experience to a young list lookout
Decline: Adelaide; they got lucky last year
Collingwood; nothing special coming through
Would like to say Richmond but any team with P.Bowden in it is in trouble.
West Coast: I know they won the flag, but no losses of personal except for Banfield and the return of Nicoski as well as one more year in a relatively young list means they will only get better.
Freo: Inclusions of Tarrant and Solomon, as well as a new found belief in themselves after 2006 means they will be challenging West Coast.
Bulldogs: So many injuries in 2006, they have to improve.
Adelaide: ageing list.
Collingwood: i hate them.
Melbourne: It's an odd year.
St. Kilda: Ruck stocks a worry.
Bulldogs, great squad, confident, good coach.
Tigers, improving list of players, great motivator for a coach.
Freo, could take the next step?
Collingwood, over rated side, only made finals last year cos of massive luck with injuries
Saints, the premiership window is closing, old list. The guys loved Grant too
Melbourne : due to have a bad season.
Sydney: Still a good side,unfortunately injuries and lack of drive to succeed again, will drop out of the 8.
The improvers : Adelaide has 1 last chance to win the premiership with current list. Will win the big one.
Essendon will make the 8.
Western Bulldogs : will finish top 3, possibly grand final appearance.
Carlton will get off bottom of ladder, may jump to 10th.
Essendon - my beloved Bombers have sured up the defence with the recruiting of Mal Michael, which means Scott Lucas can stay up teh ground. The prospects of a forward line including Lloyd, Lucas, Hird, Lovett..man!
Richmond - the Tigers have improved 2 years in a row with Terry Wallace and I think they will finish 6th this year. Have a very exiting squad and could follow the trail of the Doggies.
Adelaide - after 2 years of dominance during the regular season equalling no finals success, the Crows will have a big downer this year. Their ruck is a worry with Biglands injured, Clarke now at St Kilda and Hudson just coming back from injury.
Brisbane - Hard to say they will fall after the slide of the last couple of years, but they will embark on a journey similar to that of the Aussie cricket team of the 80's after the big 3 retired. With everything that is going on up there, I am tipping the Lions to unfortunantely prevent Carlton from a hat-trick of wooden spoons, and that this will be Leigh Matthews' last year as coach.
