2019 From Long Range Competition


#81

If I get time tonight I’ll do one with who I think has the better theme song.

I’ll have to have a listen to GWS AND GCS before I do it though.


#82

Getting pumped. For me, this competition marks the start of the real season. Woohoo!!!


#83

Another novelty one could be based purely off last season’s final ladder positions. Like the JLT you could get the reverse as well.

I had us losing to Richmond, WCE & Crows (both away) and once to Collingwood.

Surprised that I didn’t end up having Melbourne higher. I also would’ve predicted GWS making the 8 over Sydney.

Just like how the Essendon recruitment team operates on draft day, I spent half an hour and whipped it together moments before the deadline. The way it should be done.
