Champion Data results of 100,000 simulations of the 2018 season.

Methodology here ( https://www.researchgate.net/publication/316877322_Using_Player_Quality_and_Injury_Profiles_to_Simulate_Results_in_Australian_Football ) but with tweaks to how improvement/decline is modeled.

10th with 10 wins plus a 25% chance of making the finals.

And once again they overrated Collingwood as a finalist  :wallywink.

Thanks MT. Interesting, they obviously missed by a fair margin, but most pundits predicted bottom 4 and sliding for 2017.

Catman will have the same look of horror as he did during the qualifying final when he sees the cats ranking....
