Nearing the halfway point of the season, and I’ve gotta say that I have no bloody idea who’s going to win the flag. 2 weeks ago, Geelong were my premiership favourites (more on them later), with Sydney a close second, and I was preparing to write the Hawks off. I still don’t rate North Melbourne a chance – and was not surprised that Sydney ended their unbeaten streak. Maybe Sydney are my new flag favourites? They have the big bodied midfield, they have the gun forwards, and solid defenders. I’m confident they’ll finish top 4, and I’m confident that if Buddy turns it on in September, they’ll be thereabouts.
Being named Josh Kennedy seems to be an advantage if you want to play professional football.
