    Can we win the flag this year?

    It's 1ED's annual (first time this has ever happened), poll and discussion about our chances in the 2020 AFL finals.

    I put it to you that it has never been a more difficult (or easy), season to win a flag from 6-8 spot than it will be this year.

    Difficult because of the emotional and mental upheaval of a long-term relocation, not playing in front of fans, not seeing family etc. and this is the case for all Victorian teams. But also easy because Brisbane are the only team that might have an advantage in the GF but they are not unbeatable. If we get a Collingwood or St. Kilda for our first final that's a very winnable game. Things can happen, the exuberance of youth, things might snowball...

    I've never been shy to go early and stay late so I put it to you, fellow WOOFERs, Brothers in arms, Sons of the Scray, can we win the Grand Final this year? If not, why? What are we lacking? Players, experience? Something else? Who can beat us at our best?

    What's a pass mark for season 2020?

    Lots of questions...

    I’ll be happy with one final win, that’s my passing mark, anything more is a huge bonus.

    Why not us?

    I don't really think we will, but stranger things have happened.

    First need to win on Sunday. Amazing things can happen as we experienced in 2016 but realistically I reckon we could make the semi finals.

    I think we can. The talent is there it depends on if we can put it together for four quarters.
    I wonder if the heads are old enough to keep it in the zone when the tide starts to turn.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Evidence suggests no, talent gives us hope.

    I'm worried about Freo though.

    I reckon that playing at our best we have a good chance of knocking off the Giants, Demons, Saints and maybe even Port and the Pies.

    The Tigers and a full strength Eagles are a different proposition for us, IMO.

    Re: Can we win the flag this year?

    On our day if we turn up we can beat anyone. Not sure we can do this for consecutive weeks with what is still a youngish list. And to be realistic we have been up and down within games let alone week to week.

    However Bevo being the story teller he is and with our exciting players - Naughton, Bont, B Smith, Daniel ....anything is possible. To use an old cliche the club and we supporters need to take it 1 week at a time.

    My guess is we might be a little suspect with our fringe players compared to top 4 clubs this year.

    Agree with others 1 or 2 wins would be great for building confidence for next year.

    And thinking positively - why not us? Go Dogs!!

    Gee... I reckon Sunday is 50/50. I’d prob be more confident against Pies or Saints.
