OK, there’s 8 teams on three and three, but they are not all equal.
Here’s a big prediction - After six rounds we can say that Geelong and Saint Kilda will be top 4, and Carlton, Hawks, Port and Collingwood will make the finals. The Bulldogs most likely will. I don’t think either Melbourne, West Coast, Fremantle, Essendon, North Melbourne or Richmond can conceivably make the finals. This means the Crows, Brisbane and Sydney are fighting for the final spot in the finals.
