Straight-shooter: Kick loyal and win a Coleman, it’s that easy Travis. Magpie Cloke had 119 shots final year for 68 majors – 4 behind league-leader Jarryd Roughead’s 72 goals from 106 attempts.
Gaz no longer king: He’s been a SuperCoach God for years, though Gary Ablett’s points started to decline late this year. With some-more time in a brazen half on a cards, he won’t be a gimme collect in 2014, let alone captain lock.
Freo here we go: Mastermind Ross Lyon leads Fremantle to a initial flag, carrying been on a receiving finish 3 times before with St Kilda (2009 and 2010 x 2) and a Dockers final year.
Bye bye, Cats: If Geelong couldn’t secure a fourth dwindle for this golden dynasty this year, when all went right, it won’t subsequent year. With Chappy, Pods and Corey left a circle has finally turned.
Shape up, or boat out: Collingwood manager Nathan Buckley could find himself in struggle should a Magpies falter. Kangaroos manager Brad Scott and Suns trainer Guy McKenna not too distant behind.
Giant mess: Greater Western Sydney is incompetent to put wins on a house and stand adult a AFL table. A third wooden ladle in a quarrel beckons.
Jack’s a man: Move over Jaeger, venerable Suns talent Jack Martin claims Rising Star honours.
Power struggle: Thanks for a memories Port, though simply too many improved sides (NM, Ess, Adel) outward a 8 for we to splash a Sep berth.
Stylish Swans: Once a nauseous ducklings, Sydney now boasts a many fearsome conflict in a diversion after adding Kurt Tippett and Buddy in unbroken off-seasons. Both acquired for nothing. With a sharp midfield it’s going to be a voluptuous conflict subsequent year.
Roos raring to go: North Melbourne will start a deteriorate dismissed up. Arguably a top-four peculiarity side final year, it missed a 8 before alighting an easy pull and best-18 additions Nick Dal Santo and Luke McDonald. They’re a premiership dim horse.
Metricon mayhem: Good fitness knocking off a Suns during home in 2014. The enlargement side, set to make inroads in a fourth season, has mastered personification during a venue, generally in sharp conditions during night.
Wanted: First BJ, afterwards Buddy. Which AFL star will be subsequent on a move? And, there is an All-Australian feel to a 2014 giveaway agents. Dane Swan? Surely, he stays. Does Bryce Gibbs wish to finish his career during Adelaide Oval? David Mundy, anyone?
Rule changes: More a certainty than a prediction, design charging with a conduct to be outlawed and a AFL to facilitate a judiciary system.
Time’s up: Get a good demeanour during Chris Judd, Dustin Fletcher, Dean Cox, Darren Glass before they hang adult a boots for good.
