‘The biggest question hanging over the season’

Can Melbourne go back to back and win the premiership in 2022? Will Richmond have one last crack at a flag? Will the Blues be the biggest bolters of the season? Are Essendon a top-four team?

In the first episode of the Real Footy podcast for this year, Michael Gleeson, Jake Niall and Caroline Wilson preview the AFL season.

Carlton have plenty of top-end talent, but there’s one player they can’t afford to lose to injury. The Lions don’t need much to win it all, but getting more out of Joe Daniher would help. And though Ben King has a serious knee injury, it doesn’t seem that it will affect the interest in him as he comes out of contract at Gold Coast.

Plus, some predictions: who will win the Brownlow? Who will take out the Rising Star? And which team will take the biggest drop?

The panel also takes a look back at the biggest stories of the off-season and what the future holds for Alastair Clarkson, including his coaching future and where he might end up if he returns to the AFL ranks.

Plus, we answer your questions, from what the Lions need to do to go all the way this season, to fixture equity, to Gillon McLachlan’s future as AFL CEO.
