Fagan has taken the lid off.
Pls no that thread appears to be strongly cursedOK, so now we're thinking finals, yeah? OK, so where we thinking? I'm a pessimist so I am hoping we can finish just 7th and get the lesser of the two away finals. But that's just me. What do others reckon?www.bigfooty.com
Can we bump it mods? PleasePleasePleasePlease
Doesn’t matter who we play we’re gonna get teamed. #realitycheck
I presume you meant reamed?
In any case you seem to be certain that we are doomed at least relatively speaking compared to the general optimistic bent around here atm ... at what point would you concede that you were incorrect ie if we win x games or our percentage is >y etc?
ie What would Billy consider to be a acceptable season and what would he consider to be a good season and at what point would his lid be removed should we get there?
Expecting - 7 wins.
Pass mark? - 12 wins
Lid removed > 12
On behalf of our absent friend Mr B Puller I would like to declare that as of today, being the passing of the >12 win benchmark of our season, that his LID is off and, admittedly one week too late **, that even he now considers this season to have been a success!Thank you for answering!
First time I asked someone a question like that and actually gotten an answer
Sorry but Lid OFF is winning the last 3 games and finishing 1 or 2.Ok so plugging the worst possible results into the ladder predictor again ... the worst we can do is equal 6/7 (depending on percentage) ... not bad coming from 16th to our worst nightmare being 7th!
True ... but I believe you are assuming that my post was indicative of my personal level of liddedness rather than an update of our position. But I do agree that if I ran that and it was mathematically impossible for us to be lower than 2nd that would have to be at least an acting lid off position!Sorry but Lid OFF is winning the last 3 games and finishing 1 or 2.
Marc Maclure agrees with you, always thought he was an astute judge. As for D King well just meh.Sorry but Lid OFF is winning the last 3 games and finishing 1 or 2.
In fairness to King, he based it off us beating Gold Coast and losing to Geelong and Richmond and other teams around us winning all three games, which isn't too far fetched.Marc Maclure agrees with you, always thought he was an astute judge. As for D King well just meh.
Triple premiership Blue Maclure is all-in on the Lions, predicting them to finish on top of the ladder thanks to wins over Geelong and Richmond in the final two rounds.
“If you want to be really good, you’ve got to beat someone at the MCG — and they’re a big club, Richmond, and I think they (Brisbane) are going good enough to do it,” Maclure told Fox Footy’s AFL 360.
