Hawthorn finish the 2013 season with the premiership, and ranked #1, where it spent the majority of both this season and last season. The Hawks have clearly been the best-performed team over the past 24 months, and now have a trophy to show for it.
Fremantle finish the 2013 season as runner-up, and ranked #2 after a good finals series. It would be a much clearer #2 if not for its big Round 23 loss against St. Kilda. Unfortunately, the rankings system doesn't account for 'Ross Lyon resting half his team'.
Geelong and Collingwood dropped the most ranking points during the finals series, while Port Adelaide made the largest gain - obviously these are related developments.
See you in 2014 for a new season and a new spreadsheet!
