Dockerlanders, once again it is time to put your football credentials on display by indicating how successful each of the eighteen AFL teams will be in the HomeNaway season. As in past seasons, just before Round 1 starts, I will scrape your carefully considered opinions from this thread so they may be analysed before the 2022 competition; those with insight will bask in Dockerland glory forever.

Now I am not asking you to pick the order of the AFL ladder at the end of Round 23; I am asking you to place the AFL clubs into four bands.
  • Which four team will hold positions one to four at the top of the ladder?
  • Which four teams will make it to the finals in positions five through to eight?
  • Which four teams will just miss out on making the finals in positions nine through to twelve?
  • And finally, which six teams will finish at the bottom of the AFL ladder?


So your predictions will look something like this...
  • Top four: Adelaide, Brisbane, Carlton, Collingwood
  • Bottom of the top eight: Essendon, Fremantle, Geelong, Gold Coast
  • Just missing finals - four teams: Greater Western Sydney, Hawthorn, Melbourne, North Melbourne
  • Cellar dwellers - bottom six: Port Adelaide, Richmond, St Kilda, Sydney, West Coast eGurls, Western Bulldogs

Outside of Mercury’s brief, I know, but here’s a few press/media predictions for 2021:

A picture on NicNat or that Kelly bloke’s tattoos will feature on the backpage of the Worst whenever they are obliged to print an upbeat story about the Dockers.

On a roughly fortnightly basis (more-or-less after every Dockers home game), Hackdorn or similar will rush to press with an ‘exclusive’ story that’s somehow always critical of the Fremantle footy club, and that will excite Ch Eagle for a day or so, but will prove to be unfounded and uncorroborated gossip, as always.

Every time the Egirls have a setback, no matter what, Ch Eagle and the Worst will feature a ‘poor Willie Rioli’ story.

Big Eddie McGuire will still be commentating and working the studio for Fox Footy, no matter what.

Difficult to pick this year, lots of teams very close so a win or loss by a point or two could make a big difference. So what's new in that!
Here we go:
1 - 4 in order:
Collingwood, Geelong, Brisbane, Richmond
5 - 8 in order
GWS, Western Bullys, Port Adelaide, West Coast
9 - 12 in order
Us, Adelaide, N. Melb, Essendon
Rest
