More importantly, I'm devastated about Jurrah.
Half of our team are kids who haven't played a senior game. Okay, that's a slight exaggeration, but they're all we have.

It's okay, just use the one I have now. I think you can find it on my profile? I don't mind.

Don't worry, I usually finish 15th or 16th in the league I'm placed in.

AAMI Stadium looks like it will host the NAB Cup final now.

Trashley should be commenting. Brisbane just smashed Carlton.

I followed the first half, the half where Carlton players were still present in the stadium.

Should be the highlight of their season!

Every year at the start of the season, I want to venture a prediction of the ladder, but I've no confidence in my predictive powers at all.

Oh well, here goes.

1. Geelong
2. Hawthorn
3. Carlton
4. West Coast
5. Collingwood
6. Essendon
7. Sydney
8. North Melbourne
9. Richmond (I was going to predict them in 11th, but c'mon)
10. Freo
11. St Kilda
12. Adelaide
13. Brisbane
14. Footscray
15. Port
16. Melbourne
17. Gold Coast
18. GWS

I bet a 2013 comedy festival ticket that Brisbane would finish 17th this year. Evidently I forgot about Port Adelaide.

Danny if you set up the supercoach, I'll do it, but I've always found it to be a lot less fun than I should. Never finished a season.

Both Brisbane and Port were showing signs of improvement at the end of last year. Melbourne and the Doggies, however? On their way down.

Melbourne didn't really get high enough to get on the way down in the first place.

Weren't they in the eight (or at least ninth) for one week last year?

But yeah, touche.

I think you're both being heavily overcritical of Melbourne.

I don't know, this Jurrah thing could really throw the team off balance.

Or they could have something to prove and stick it to doubters like me.

I'm never sure what to think about Melbourne. They proved last year that they have a major split-personality problem, and as a result I don't think anyone can make a truly informed prediction of how they'll show up this year. They'll probably win a couple hard games emphatically and get thrashed in a few easily winnable games. That's all we can expect. I'll be surprised if Jurrah's situation doesn't hurt the club, though.
