    We need a lot of help over the next 6 weeks. Even with 5 wins from our last 6 we could still miss out due to our poor %. We really need Essendon and West Coast to lose. I'll say the same about the saints given i think Sydney, Richmond and Melbourne will make it.

    How would Melbourne winning help us in the slightest? Port are a game and massive percentage ahead of Melbourne, who are a game and percentage ahead of us - the Demons are one of the teams we'll more than likely have to finish ahead of just to have any chance of making the top 8.

    Any talk about top 4 is fanciful IMO. For mine, I want to see GWS, Port, Geelong and Adelaide win all their games against the current 5-10 teams so that as many spots as possible in the bottom half of the top 8 open up.

    That was done with top 4 in mind. Port are 4th and a game below 3rd, and therefore are the side most vulnerable to dropping out. They lose to Melbourne this week, Adelaide and us and they finish on 13 wins, we win our remaining 6 games and we get to 14 wins

    If you look at it in terms of who we wanted to lose to put them in danger of missing the 8, sure, but seeing Port & GWS get rolled gives me hope we can beat them

    St Kilda's big loss puts them behind us and brings us up to 10th. Beat Essendon next week and we're 9th, beat them by 8 goals more than West Coast beat Brisbane by and we're 8th

    Not sure whether to root for Brisbane to win, as we play them the week after. Maybe a big effort in Perth will take it out of them

    The good part of this round was StKilda and WCE losing. They both have very hard roads to the finals now (on the ladder predictor I have them each finishing on 11 wins), effectively leaving 9 teams in with a healthy shot for the final.sMakes next weeks Essendon match absolutely huge. The winner is really in the box seat to sneak a finals spot.

    This one will seem weird - but we are rooting for the Saints against Port this week.
    I've been looking through our potential windows for a finals berth - of which there are very few - but Port is an opening for us.
    Whereas St.Kilda's run home from here is so difficult that even if they beat Port - they still should miss finals.

    St.Kilda could actually beat Port AND West Coast - and likely still miss the finals - so are definitely our ally the next two weeks.
    The Western Bulldogs.....shortest premiership drought in the league.

    The Saints are cooked, cooked, cooked.

    If we make finals we will be storming. I reckon we'll finish 8th and meet Melbourne at the MCG. Win that and our aura as barnstorming finals specialists will be massive. Jeez it'll be exciting if this eventuates.
