Every year on the AFL Online forums a thread starts up about predicting the big events in the given year. I don’t think anyone takes it seriously but when you look back over it at the end of the year you tend to find there are always some big surprises that no one would have predicted, the ones that everyone managed to predict and then you get the ones which you might giggle about at the start of the year but when it turns out true you don’t know whether they’re a genius, lucky or so one eyed they picked their favorite player and hoped it would come true.
