Back for more in 2008

This quote caught my eye from the Herald Sun,
“Daffy is tipping the Fremantle Dockers to be the big improvers.
“We’ve got the Dockers third favourites at $9 and I can see them being a big factor next year,” he said.
“The punters really came for them early this season and they let them down, but with Harvey in charge they might live up to their potential next year.”
Daffy thinks next season will bring tough times for supporters of West Coast, Sydney and the Kangaroos. “

Now you have heard this all before, (Markedly history) but that is what footy is all about……

Funny too how wrong I and the bookies were about the Cats! Mind you, everyone was right about the Saints……..

In other news, the Saints have been installed at $11, and the Kangaroos tipped to slide big time down to $26. I cant believe what the bookies think about the Roos…what more do they have to do to be considered a threat?

  1. actually, i tend to agree with the bookies. i reckon nth melbourne will finish in the lower reaches of the 8 next year.. if they make the finals at all. st kilda and freo will be there which will push two teams out. i reckon adelaide will be one and nth melbourne could quite possibly be the other

  2. i couldnt believe how quick people jumped off the cats at the end of last year. they had two great years, were on the up, had a great start to 06, then the pressure and expectation got to them and they went to pieces….so to be honest, it wasnt a big surprise to see the do as well as they have this year to me, i have always felt their list was potentially the best in the league…. but then, i can say that now can’t I, last year you would have laughed at me :-p

    I know someone who had $50 on Bartel at $131 from the start of the season. Not bad me thinks.

    Re: Eagles, the loss of Judd and jones will hurt them big time OFF field, more so than on field. Lack of leadership and wisdom will be a big problem next year…..and as we all know, they have struggled with that at the best of times.
