    Re: The Next Few Weeks

    75 to 85 lots of pain for a kid. I saw Doug Hawkins cry at KP after a lose in the early 80s and got king hit in the dunnies during a win in the 90s for no reason other than to bear my colours. Prick of a place.

    Must break the curse.

    Need to get an away win soon that will be good for the confidence. Winning down at Kardina would be great. Nearly did it against the Plastics and Eagles. 5 wins at Etihad and the G in Round 1

    Yep, our Melbourne form is 5-0 this year, outside of Melbourne it's 0-3. A better away record will be crucial if we are going to finish up near the top.

    Re: The Next Few Weeks

    One week to the bye. St Kilda, above us on the ladder. We will be outside the top 8 by next week.

    Crazy how big this game will be now.
    Everything. Okay! I'll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog.

    When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out.

    But the worst thing I ever done -- I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa -- and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

    Looking ahead, if we drop some games in the latter half of the season say Sydney, Adelaide, Port Adelaide and that we always lose after Cairns. That has us fighting for 8th according to a calculator/live ladder.

    Need to start winning, or start researching top 10 phantom drafts.

    We're up against it, this isn't the 2016 side.

    5th is just as good as top 4, IMO. That's probably the goal from here on in.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    The consistency is just not there .
    Reckon Bevo got it wrong with team selections as well . We needed one more defender to cover Taylor .
    He's barely had a kick forward

    Re: The Next Few Weeks

    If we make the 8 it will be 8th....we haven't been playing well all year. This is not the same team. We haven't played a 4 qtr game this season. We won't make the 8 in 2017....in my 5 game predictor I had us for the following based on early season form...
    GWS - loss
    Rich - win
    WC - loss
    Geel - loss
    Saints- loss.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    I reckon our final series flattered our 2016. We limped into the finals, played out of our skins once there.

    I reckon our 2016 home and away season gave a false impression. Our finals performance was more indicative of our ability once we had a full team to select from.

    We have a seriously good team who haven't managed to put it together so far this season for various reasons. I still have confidence we will do so but it seems others on this board have lost faith.
    I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.

    We haven't had anywhere near our best team on the park this year, and we have 3-5 playing considerably worse than 2016. The fact we have had just 3 of our first 9 games as 'home' games hasn't helped either.

    We aren't far away at all, just need a good run with injuries and our players to perform to their capabilities across an entire game and we will be challenging at the right time.

    Agreed. Two weeks is a long time in football, particularly with the evenness of the competition this year.

    Interesting quote I read on twitter by Mick Le Grand.....Amazing fixturing has seen the Western Bulldogs play just 3 home games out of our last 15 games. Must be due for a home run.
