    How Many More Wins?

    The run home:

    Carlton at Etihad (10th vs 16th)
    GCS at Cairns (sold home game) (10th vs 13th)
    Essendon at Etihad (would need to break the 'losing the week after hoodoo') (10th vs 9th)
    Brisbane at Brisbane (10th vs 18th)
    GWS at Etihad (10th vs 2nd)
    Port Adelaide at Ballarat (sold home game)
    Hawthorn at Etihad (10th vs 11th)

    5 wins - probably 9th
    3 or 4 wins - probably 11th or 12th

    We'd have to win 5 at of our last 7 to get to 12 wins which would be enough to make the 8. Can be done but on current form right now I can't see it unfortunately as still I want to make the 8.

    99.9% chance of not making the 8.

    00.1% margin of error.

    12 wins won't get us in the 8. Especially with our pathetic %. I don't think 13 will do it either. Season is done and dusted. Play the kids.

    Too much bathwater ingested to be any show whatsoever. In fact a number of blokes appear to have drowned in it.

    Of our home stretch I reckon we'll beat the Hawks and that's it.

    Sounds weird, but at this point we've got higher priorities than wins.

    It's not really about wins now it's more about getting some respect back and playing good footy for longer periods.
    It would also be great if we could get the scoreboard ticking over again
    Great. I need one more thing. Soda. Yeah, I don't want my guys paying for soda. I want you to stock my machine for three years. I'm serious.

    Colins - maybe, English, no, Webb depends on tomorrow's game for me, and Williams a yes.

    The way were going I'm worried we'll find a way to lose the games we won already.

    I really just want to skip to the pre/off season and reaload/reassess for 2018. Let 2017 be the 2007 of this team

    Ha! Well scratch that then.

    She'll be a lean run home I suspect.

    One goal in a half last night. Im not sure who in the wings can lift a forward line that's really struggled?

    Exactly, its about building momentum into the preseason. We cant go into the preseason with our confidence shot.
