There might be other ins and outs, please post If I have overlooked any players

Wow thats a massive turnover of players
On face value it would appear that Port Adelaide might be weaker this season
Seem to be a lack of known key marking forwards
Have plenty of good smalls to work with
Might well have a fitness edge on most other teams early in the season, with the AFL training

Very difficult to predict with confidence how they will perform, as its virtually a new team

Prediction
1st-6th

2-1-1 after 4 rounds
Have lost to ST and a draw against WWT

They are a dynamite outfit , the other teams probably need to play tight defensive footy against PA to beat them
I think they will win most games that become shoot outs

Ruckman Sam Hayes is most prob going to be a very good ruckman

Predicted minor round finish
1st-4th

2-1-2 After 5 rounds
In the round 5 loss, this was the ages of the 23 players listed in the footy budget

18...3
19...7
20...5
21...1
22...1
24...3
26...1
28...1
30...1

10 teenagers
15 aged 20 or less
499 total games played
214 of those games by Steve Summerton

Are the baby magpies rock hard fit, because of the AFL pre season training ?
Will the very young players improve as they gain playing experience ?

PA 2-1-4 after 7 games
Been easily beaten by WA and NA at Alberton the last 2 games
I have not seen them in the 2 losses, I wonder whats happened ?

I just dont know how to rate them for the rest of the season
They might click for a patch of football again this season and snare a finals spot

Expected minor round finish 5TH-9TH ?

Is it true that they had 18 AFL listed players to choose from yesterday? They lookef a strong side on paper.
I wasn't expecting North to win let alone thrash them

Just My thoughts as a non Port person . Did Port loose some depth when non AFL players left their club . What I know of three to the Eagles one to Glenelg.
Plus the one game I've watched with Port in at Alberton . My point of view way to defensive, by this I refer to Port being two goals up at 1/4 time . Then defend defend defend defend no or very little attack .
Just My thoughts

wasn't that game, the game that was played in almost cyclonic conditions with the cyclone going across the ground  ?  if this is the match then it is always difficult to score at either end in those sorts of conditions & without seeing the match i'd suggest both teams played to the ''dead pockets''

or perhaps Chad Cornes is a far superior coach to Matthew Lokan

Your kind of correct
I was there with the huge wind hitting my face
Was hard to kick goals
But when the team Port is in the lead running in groups total control total domination they couldn't get over the line . Highlighted the last two minutes ( or longer ) in Ports forward line . Ball on the goal line all Port needed to do was knock it threw for a point they could not do it. Wind was an absolute shocker but when players like Summerton have 29 touches and your running all over the other team you should win not draw.

Second point I never thought I'd totally agree but Cornes coached Port into a GF .
That beats Lokan at Glenelg
