- Essendon are an un-tippable basket case of their own making.
- Richmond are crap.
- Freo are crapper.

Harder to pick was the win by GWS, who appear in sparkling form, particularly at home. That said the Form Indicator had this as GWS +40 and Hawthorn as -31.
Should have seen it coming.
Also as a missed tip was Melbourne losing to St Kilda. But with a 5 point margin tipped, it was really a coin toss of a game.
Rankings change as below.
Well now. West Coast are within a Trent Cotchin short dink of a kick (to a teammate under the hammer) from topping the table.
Which comes at an interesting time given 'The Armchair Expert' thinks they are not the best outfit out there.
Richmond join Fremantle outside the best 8, and both head for 'bog standard' team ratings.
And it has taken all of 6 weeks, but finally and by the barest of margins, Essendon have sunk to the bottom, where pundits have had them all year but the system needed to adjust for of itself.
