Looking wider, it is not uncommon though.
The Max Barry 'Squiggle' system and FootyForecaster are both tracking at the same as FMI, or 1 point lower.
Its not easy going for the machines, and another 6 this week should have everyone looking again at their models and systems.

Three more dropped this week - Collingwood because... WTF Cats!, Richmond because they are slightly less on the nose than Fremantle, and Sydney because as mentioned recently, the Hawks have dropped over 100 points and are on decline.
West Coast move ahead as the top ranked team as Hawthorn come crashing down around them.
The GWS are really stamping their imprimatur on the season now, climbing up to 6th overall, after starting 12th.
Worrying for the League bosses should be the three teams now sub 800. Both the Queensland clubs and the Dons. All in free-fall.
