Roo Bloke requested a number of polls in the Polling Station this week.ย  He wanted to know how our predictions have changed during the course of the year………starting today with the Final 8.ย  I can tell you that we were fairly confident of Hawthorn during the Pre-Season Edition of this Finals Poll.ย  Who do you see sneaking into the Final 8 from here on in?

  3. Hey Schwarz, i can’t seem to vote for the 2017 premiers. You’ve left North off the list mate. Obviously an oversight on your behalf.


  4. Around this time of year, there’s always a team around this time that is going really well, and suddenly stops going well, falling back towards the bottom of the 8, or even out of the 8 altogether. Given that they are the only team in the whole league yet to beat a current top-8 side, my vote goes to Port Adelaide.


  5. While it is hard to see sydney getting into the 8, they are only 2 games behind and have won 4 from 5.

    I’m backing them to scrape in at this stage.

    Freo at 78%, West Coast, Essendon and Melbourne are all quite vulnerable. I can see Sydney knocking at least a couple of these teams out of contention, and I suspect West Coast mght do ok on the run home once Lycett and Nic Nat are back.

    So my two ins are Sydney and West Coast and Two outs are Melbourne and Essendon.

    But I wouldn’t be shocked tobsee the dogs miss the 8 and one of those teams get in.

    I’m thinking
