Hands up if you had the Sydney Swans as one of your premiership contenders at the start of the season.

Come on… be honest, you didn’t, did you?

You were all about Melbourne going back-to-back, perhaps the Western Bulldogs looking for revenge? Or you thought that Richmond would find that fire to compete again, or maybe that Geelong would be in the mix, and that Brisbane would be around the mark as well?

Why not?

 

Paywall… what a pain, right? Well, it is how we survive and keep the page clean of gambling ads. Yeah, that’s right – we don’t just talk about how bad they are, we just don’t accept their coin. This article is the fifth of five – maybe six… maybe seven or eight members’ articles this week. You can access this, additional exclusive columns, and get the game reviews from HB earlier than everyone else by becoming a Mongrel Member. Plus, you help us grow.
