    After last week I'd love to say West Coast. Would love to see them knock off the Dockers in the Final.

    I'm an eagles supporter. But I reckon the Hawks will do a three peat.

    Possible, but the Crows will have to win another 2 away games (Hawks and Dockers). Very tough indeed to play 4 away final games in a row to win the premiership.

    Then again, the Crows did just that in 1998: Demons at MCG, Swans at SCG, Bulldogs at MCG and Kangaroos at MCG.

    D.t my man i will cast my vote tonight.

    West coast are starting to get cocky and believe they have it in the bag. Just remember geelong 08 and hawthorn 2012.

    If hawthorn can beat the crows tonight i have no doubt they can steam roll the great pretenders fremantle.

    Brisbane lions lost their qualifier in 03 and still won the 3peat. Same goes for west coast in 05.

    However if Hawthorn doesn't make it i will be cheering on west coast for a win.

    Eagles for me,

    Home prelim final against either an under manned Sydney side or a North Melbourne side who's just not up to it.

    Most potent forward line with the best power forward in the competition at the moment. Nic nats ruck dominance just keeps giving silver service to the gun Eagles midfielders.

    Hawthorn the only team that can beat them because they are the only other team who can score over 100 points and because of their grand final experience.

    Hawks vs Eagles grand final would be a ripper to watch too!

    @MJS1034 agree with you 100%. Question is can the Eagles perform on the big day at the MCG? I believe tonight will answer a lot of questions.

    Spot on mate, the Eagles are obviously travelling better but on the big stage at the G I think it's a 50/50. If the likes of hodge, Mitchell and Lewis can lead the way and rough up the Eagles abit and get back to their best they will be hard team to beat grand final day.

    Your right, huge game tonight, Adelaide certainly capable of pulling something out of the bag and causing a massive upset. Can't wait!

    Freo will surprise everyone and finally get it done.

    I think the fact that less people expect them to do it this year might help them a bit too, a bit less pressure on them.

    Just a gut feeling.

    Fremantle don't deserve to win a premiership because they play such an ugly defensive brand of footy. I used to actually like watching Fremantle play before Ross Lyon started coaching them with his St Kilda game plan (which never won the Saints a flag either). They don't have the fire power and they aren't prepared to take the risks to get the job done.

    As to my prediction I reckon West Coast will get the job done this year. They really impressed me against the Hawks last week and have been the dark horse this year.

    The Hawks are an impressive unit but they are vulnerable this year. I'm a Port supporter so I've seen them lose both games to Port this year. Richmond and the Kangaroos also beat the Hawks this year. All of those teams play an aggressive and attacking game of footy. You need to play offensively to beat the Hawks, which is why I can't see Fremantle or Sydney beating them this season.

    My head says West Coast to win this year but I'll be supporting the underdogs in the finals. Hopefully both Adelaide and North Melbourne can get up this week. Hopefully whoever wins beats Fremantle because it'd be a shame for another Grand Final to be subject to a Ross Lyon borefest.

    @2FAST4U North Melbourne didn't beat Hawthorn this year or even last year. North got smashed this year including their captain.

    Richmond always trouble us. Every year Richmond beats us we end up winning the flag!
