The Mongrel Team 2019 Predictions

So, before I start, I am acutely that I published an article recently highlighting the inadequacies of some of the AFL’s highly-paid “experts” when it came to predicting outcomes of AFL seasons.

Their track records weren’t exactly teeming with success when it came to picking the winners, Brownlow medallists, or top eight teams, but they kind of stuck their necks out and put their opinions out there for ridicule.

Well, it'd be hypocritical of us to point fingers and not have the guts to put our picks on the table. Now it’s our turn to share what we think.

Surely, they can’t be as bad as the experts, right? Surely, given our limited knowledge, and zero inside info, our selections won't completely stink?

The Mongrel team have put their heads together, or at least had a group chat on messenger, and here are the our predictions for Season 2019.
