So what are people's season predictions?

It's always hard to say, and no one will ever be right, because things go wrong in this wonderful game of ours.

I think we'll still be up there, I would like to think, though we did have a great run with injuries last year. For once. If the Saints can keep fit they will be a massive force, you never know with Freo, they let people down every year. I think the Roos will come crashing down, I don't know how they finished top four last year. If the Hawks can play consistent football they will be top four, but they need to keep away from drugs as well. I'm skeptical about Collingwood, but on last year's form they will be a good unit. Sydney are gone, West Coast are gone, Adelaide might have one last shot. The Tigers and Demons I feel (sadly) will struggle this year, but I really hope they prove me wrong. It'd be nice to see a Blues resurgence, they've had enough shit years now. The Lions have a better list than given credit for, Essendon will struggle. Don't know what to think about the Dogs, maybe low top eight. And last but not least is Port, who if they played as they did in that grand final will be terrible.

I love telling Port fans that. They are the WORST Grand Final team in history.

I'm tipping Luke Hodge, Sam Mitchell or Riewoldt for the Brownlow.

1. Geelong
2. Hawthorn
3. Port Power
4. Fremantle
5. West Coast
6. Footscray
7. South Melbourne
8. Carlton

Hopefully Collingscum finish last, though I reckon North Melbourne or Melbourne will.....brownlow will be Pavlich's.

Can't see Carlton finishing top eight. And where are the Saints?

You're kidding? No WAY Carlton will make it past 12th.
And where are Adelaide??

In our work tips, I've tipped Geelong for Minor Premiers, and Melbourne for Wooden Spoon.

Well, I am soooo glad to have football back. Proper football. I can breathe easier now.

The round's results:

Richmond 17.7 (109) d Carlton 11.13 (79)
Geelong 15.15 (105) d Port Adelaide 14.12 (96)
Collingwood 16.15 (111) d Fremantle 13.7 (85)
West Coast 14.8 (92) d Brisbane 11.10 (76)
St. Kilda 6.15 (51) d Sydney 6.13 (49) - lowest ever winning score at Telstra Dome
Western Bulldogs 19.12 (126) d Adelaide 18.15 (123)
Hawthorn 23.16 (154) d Melbourne 6.14 (50)
Essendon 19.8 (122) d North Melbourne 9.13 (67) - Essendon's first win over North since 2001.

The big stories:

- Scott Lucas (Ess) is out for half a year after tearing his post cruciate ligament
- Kane Johnson (Rich) locked up overnight for public urination. However his actions afterward have been exemplary. Commend him.
- Mick Malthouse (Coll coach) in hot water after alluding the AFL are idiots on radio (everyone agrees with him however).

Malthouse is a legend, Demetriou is Scum.

Normally, when you say scum I disagree, or think it's too harsh, but here I agree wholeheartedly.

Demetriou (though it's not mainly him, it's Adrain Anderson asnd the rest) could not be more out of touch with what the fans want. 90% of fans think the hands in the back rule is shithouse, I among them, and it means players like Jakovich, Archer and Silvagni would have been constantly giving away free kicks.

Feral, unwatchable match between St Kilda and Carlton last night. An eyesore. I want my money back.
