    I think you're underrating Sewell and Burgoyne, but apart from that I agree that the Hawks are overrated as a result of being from Melbourne where they are one of the strongest Victorian teams, they had a great 2012, I suppose I am more interested to see how they respond to the pain of losing a close grand final, as West Coast were spurred on by it in 2006.

    Someone at Champion Data has been smoking the wacky tabacky.
    Our defense let through less than any other side last season. I don't see how they could be rated third on performance if they were the least scored against. I think Champion Data probably use a Stats model that is flawed, in other words it takes into account data other than lack of scoring against. Don't really like these stats based predictions or assessments. If you go on stats we should have lost the final against Adelaide and the GF.

    The Bookmakers have Cats as favourites for the flag according to an article I read on AFL.com. Sounds like the same @@@@e year in year out and it doesn't even matter if we win a flag and then strengthen our forward line. I reckon the Cats Chairman has put a lot of early money down.

    It didn't say they were flag favourites it said they were taking the most money for them. Hawks are still favourites with Swans and WC next.

    To be honest, I think they'll struggle to win the big one this year given they only had a six day rest after the PF in 2012.

    Cartman, your hawks had far more high paid stars last year than our swans. That's a joke of an excuse pal. You lost it, we won. Get over it.

    ..And the Swans are the Premiers...The Ultimate Team...The Ultimate Warriors. They have overcome the highly fancied Hawks in brilliant style. Sydney the 2012 Premiers - Gerard Whately ABC

    Lance is worth every cent - 9.8% additional in your salary cap..... And yes the Swans were the better side in last years GF.

    Hopefully we find some more spare cash inside our enormous cap to make a bid for Franklin as well.
