Will we get off to a flyer next year in the first 5 rounds?
« on: December 06, 2017, 10:22:07 AM »
We got off to a flyer in the first 5 rounds of this year which gave us some insurance when we had those 3 narrow losses in a row.

So how many games do you think we will win in the first 5 rounds of 2018?


1. Thursday, March 22 Carlton MCG Home 7.25pm

2. Thursday, March 29 Adelaide Adelaide Oval Away 7.20pm

3. Sunday, April 8 Hawthorn MCG Home 1.10pm

4. Saturday, April 14 Brisbane MCG Home 2.10pm

5. Tuesday, April 24 Melbourne MCG Away 7.25pm

As long as we finish strongly, I'll be a happy camper.

I'd take 3/5 to start the year. Would love to win them all, of course, but I want wins in September a little more than March/April.

Reckon we will be 4-1 after round 5

Round 2 will be an interesting, over there, their feral sooking fans

Should be a good road trip  ;D

Reckon they'll try and be tough with Power Ranger Walker leading the charge

Didn't want to start a new thread so I'll put it here.

Hawthorn has made our round 3 home game against them one of their membership replacement games. So there will be a massive crowd that day.

3. Sunday, April 8 Hawthorn MCG Home 1.10pm

So 3 of our 4 games at the 'G within the first 5 rounds could now be pushing 80k.

Herald-Sun website has us either 3-1 or 2-2 after the first 4 rounds. So with the Anzac Eve game against Melbourne, they would have us 2-3 at worst or 4-1 at best.

Where will your AFL club be after the opening month of the season?

THE cliche from the coaches might be that “it’s a long season” but if you want to win premierships, the opening month is vital.

Since 2008, the eventual premiers have combined for an utterly dominant record of 35 wins and 5 losses between rounds one and four.

Only once in that time (Hawthorn 2015) has a team lost two of its opening four games and recovered to taste September success.

Seven of the last 10 premiers have been 4-0 after a month of footy, perfectly setting themselves up for multiple home finals.

So what can your club expect from the first four weeks of the 2018 season? Will your premiership dreams be thriving or will you be forced to do it the hard way?

Take a look at all the bankable wins, danger games and red flags as well as the best and worst case scenarios for all 18 clubs.

RICHMOND

Draw — Carlton (MCG), Adelaide (AO), Hawthorn (MCG), Brisbane (MCG)

The Bulldogs proved it. Premiership hangovers are real!

But luckily for the Tiger faithful, all the talk is very positive coming out of Punt Road. They are ready to be the hunted.

Lock them in for wins against Carlton and Brisbane, but things get a little more interesting against the Crows.

Richmond’s 76 point thrashing at Adelaide Oval last year was the club’s worst loss of the season.

That just leaves a date with the Hawks at the MCG to decide if the Tigers hit the first turn at 3-1 or 2-2.

Richmond will run into that game with the added bonus of a 10 day break while Hawks will be coming off a six day break. Advantage, yellow and black!

Best Case: 3-1

Worst Case: 2-2

I can see us beating the Crows. Our confidence is high after beating them in the GF

I can too.

I think we can easily go 4-0. As I posted earlier, our first danger game I reckon is Melbourne.

If we can win the first 5 (nothing more would please me greater than beating the budgies again when we play them in round 2 ), I reckon we can win the next 3 after that which will be 8 in a row.
This amount will give us a record winning streak of 13 in a row.
Our longest winning streak is 12 (that I could find) from 1932-1933 so I would love to create some more history this year and start earning a powerhouse name once again. :gotigers
The third quarter, the premiership quarter, it's Dusty time. He starts to shine and then delivers in the most AWESOME fashion.
