3. EARLY CALL

Missing out on St Kilda cost the tips system a perfect round. Still, 8 from 9 places these rankings and tips now with 21 for the season, and a very good Monash Uni competition score.

Its is the best start to a season by round 3 in the 18 team era. It is also the best 'first 27 games' since the introduction of the Gold Coast.
Add to that, it is also the best season start n the same time period for the Monash Uni scoring system.

Last week the question was asked - Where are Fremantle?
The ranking for the Dockers at the start of the year were questioned, as they were listed eighth. Did the rankings see ahead to the Dockers decline?

This week, it may be the rankings have missed one. After just beating everyone's tip for 17th, failing in the last minute against a battler for the top 8, and then getting cut to ribbons by a genuine top 8 contender... have the Tigers been over-rated?

The year started with the Tigers in 4th (1259 points) and they are now 7th, down 37 points.
It's the third largest drop, behind Fremantle and Collingwood.

And it is only round 3.
