Six months ago I asked you, dear Dockerlanders, to put your virtual characters on the line and backup your fingertip opinions by showing that you know football really well. Thirty-odd Dockerlanders took up the challenge (see it here) and predicted where the eighteen AFL teams would be placed at the end of the 2014 HomeNaway season. In my four bands, this is how the AFL clubs finished:

  • Top four: Fremantle, Geelong, Hawthorn, Sydney
  • Bottom of the eight: Essendon, North Melbourne, Port Adelaide, Richmond
  • Just missing finals: Adelaide, Carlton, Collingwood, Gold Coast, West Coast eGurls
  • Cellar dwellers: Brisbane, Greater Western Sydney, Melbourne, St Kilda and Western Bulldogs

 

Collectively, you predicted this:

  • Top four: Fremantle, Geelong, Hawthorn, Sydney
  • Bottom of the eight: Collingwood, North Melbourne, Port Adelaide, Richmond
  • Just missing finals: Adelaide, Carlton, Essendon, Gold Coast, West Coast eGurls
  • Cellar dwellers: Brisbane, Greater Western Sydney, Melbourne, St Kilda and Western Bulldogs

In short, you are pretty damn smart! It was only Collingwood and Essendon that you didn't get right. However, in this crowd-sourced challenge there are stars and duffers. I will laud and shame those deserving on the Dockerland message board.
