The regular 2016 AFL season finished last weekend.
This is my colour record of the games played in 2016:
The legend I use is:
A good season would see a predominantly green and gold mix of colours (Geelong as an example this year). A poor season is dominated by blue and red (Essendon as an example).
Coaches of blue and red teams come under significant pressure. Today, Brisbane announced that they had sacked their coach, Justin Leppitsch.
The minor premiers in each AFL season do not have an opportunity for a gold win or a blue defeat. If they have a good season it will be predominantly green.
Fremantle have had a predominantly red season. This has led to questions about Ross Lyon’s coaching style and ability.
A green and gold season gives supporters hope. St Kilda’s final green win of the season at home was that kind of win.
Finals start on 8 September. These are the profiles of the teams that have made it to those games:
