2016 AFL Season Forecast



Preview by: David Cardamone

The Dees have being quietly going about their business as 2016 looks to be another development year with Simon Goodwin ready to take over from Paul Roos at season’s end. Melksham and Bugg add experience and flexibility to their line-up allowing Brayshaw, Viney and Tyson to develop around them.

They will be far more consistent and competitive in 2016 with the continual development and fresh face of Clayton Oliver to excite Melbourne supporters, but can they kick a winning score? The recruitment of Weideman fills a long term need but Hogan and Garlett will continue to need support. Christian Petracca may help at times, but he too will be nursed into senior football as Melbourne continue on their journey for long-term sustained success.

Predicted Finish: 12th – 15th

    I think the dockers will fished maybe 3rd or 7th I think the dockers will have a good year but beyond that the dockers need a main gold to is to be at our best but the recruiting in the draft was very low dockers put less 10 years for players and dockers don’t do it enough but the will do ok
