If Swans lose then Carlton will come out hard and ensure giants don't win.

Carlton v Sydney week 1 is worst scenario for Carlton. They def would not want to face a finals experienced side week 1.
Just in general they'd obviously rather play the Bulldogs who scraped over the line against Geelong's VFL side than GWS who just defeated them 2 weeks prior. You wouldn't want to play GWS anyway, they have a fantastic finals record, never losing the first final that could eliminate them. They make the 8, they always get a win.

Love that idea.

Now we know that Sydney lost today and should be out. Replay the game next week. Winner gets 7ths spot.

I think the Crows are our of finals contention unless you are banking on a successful court appeal to overturn last week's result against the Swans.

Not overturn it but replay the game next week to see who gets the last spot. Great idea

Pies and Lions at home too strong.
I'll go Carlton on the assumption it is at the MCG. Think they play better at the G.
GWS to wipe the floor with the Saints.

Would be good if f 5-8 teams do well. I mean even for future years… to make it in finals and have a good crack from 5-8 is a possibility would be good.

All the Vic finals will be MCG. Only if they had to play two on Saturday would there likely be a move to Docklands.
Its a stretch but maybe St Kilda v GWS could be at Docklands, being a small Vic club against a lesser supported non-Vic club, but there's no need to not play at the MCG.

Wouldn't both the Demons and Pies be equally at home at the MCG or is the home vs away interchange bench/change rooms etc a big variable?
Pies have the same changerooms regardless if they are home or away at the MCG. Melbourne fans will be out in force, will be a 50/50 split, Pies to take over AFL members area, Dees to take over MCC.

From what I can gather it'll be:
Pies vs Dees- Thursday night
Lions vs Port- Friday night
Saints vs GWS (marvel)- Sat arvo/twilght
Carlton vs Sydney- Sat night

Could maybe swap the Brisbane and Carlton games but it seems fair to me that top 4 teams get to play earlier on in the weekend. Did see on twitter that stadium golf is on at marvel that weekend so who knows if that will dictate anything.

If saints don’t get to host their game at marvel, will that finally end the argument about cats getting a final at their s**t little stadium?
