As the AFL season winds down I find it interesting to note that this season has been about as predictable as one could have guessed after watching round one. There are, in my opinion, three teams in this race. St. Kilda is the wildcard because of their tormenting defence. Then it comes down to the Cats and Magpies.
As a Magpie supporter I wish it were any other team. I've personally been in the MCG and watched Geelong get into my boys' heads. Collingwood has the talent to compete, but they usually falter late against this foe. Thus, with five weeks left I would have to predict that Geelong will repeat as champions.
It pains me to make such a prediction, and my opinion might change in two weeks, as they play each other for the last time in regular season. As an Aussie Rules fan I would love to see some fresh blood rise up and knock these guys out. I thought the Saints had them last year.
Is there any other fans state side that watch, enjoy, follow, or are even mildly interested in this game? I'd love to know.
