According to the fans, St Kilda have been the game’s most disappointing side in 2018, following a survey completed by over 48,000 fans on AFL.com.au.
The survey ranged from a number of topics including the teams closest to a premiership, all the way down to which clubs do you love to beat.
27% of fans surveyed said the Saints’ start to the year has been the most disappointing, given Alan Richardson’s side only has one win and one draw to their name.
Essendon aren’t far behind with 24% of fans suggesting no team has been more disappointing then the Bombers, while Carlton (18%) and GWS (16%) are next in line.
At the other end of the scale, North Melbourne have been labelled as the most surprising movers up the table, with 47% of fans voting for Brad Scott’s men.
