IMO Esendon will not win the flag next season.
Next season I think Kevin Sheedy will try & restructure the team, kind of think of it as taking a step back to take 3 steps forward. They still have the class , but the wheels became a bit wobbly last season & I think Sheedy will fix the problem before it becomes a long term one . They possibly can still win the flag next season , but I myself dont think so

The teams I really see being hard to beat will be Brisbane & Pot Adelaide. I would have put Richmond there but we all have to wait & see how the morale in that particular player group is after a few of them were forced to take pay cuts to fatten the other ones pockets.

Will anyone stop Essendon from winning it next season??? The queue starts behind Hawthorn !!!

Seriously, yes. And its called the salary cap. Introduced to help create a level playing field, within a few years the clubs shouldnt even bother playing and just focus on the coin toss.... who ever wins that should get the 4 points

Im not talking as an Essendon fan, but a neutral guy. Essendon have fixed their probelms already. They have the greatest midfield in the AFL. Mercuri will be moved to foward pocket as Ramanauskas has been freed up a spot at HB. Anyways, Caracella, Mercuri, Hird, Johnson, McGrath, Bannister, Peverill, Ramanauskas, Heffernan, Misiti, Blumfield !!! Any youre telling me Lappin, Voss, Akemanis and Black !! OR
Johnson, Hird, Misiti, Caracella, Mercuri, Peverill, Ramanuskas !!!

Essendon just had a bad day, can you imagine if Voss had been out and lets say an equivalent of Mercuri.

Essendon are the best team in the AFL, and second comes Hawthorn.
