Port now 2 games and 13% out of the 8, so essentially 3 games.

Still have 2 top 4 teams, plus Richmond and Collingwood.

If they make it from here, they’ll be spent come finals.

Port have been down by big margins this year at the crunch numerous times, and charged home only to still lose. Perfect fodder for "we're not far away, stay the course, we don't give up".

Time to re-sign Ken.

Surely it will be an interesting discussion at board level?

We’ve done well enough to keep him for next year vs wtf?? He was meant to get us into a GF this year!

Pretty funny how Tealsters think Ken will be sacked.

Lost a Prelim last year, go 0-5 with COVID issues just before the season, go 7-2 since then and push a top 4 side at their home.

No AFL coach would get sack in this situation. This league is not that ruthless.

Especially at a club who needs AFL permission to spend money.

That was a replica of their game vs Carlton. Fall a long way behind, then the opposition stop and Port storm back only to cock up late chances. The club will see it as a brave loss and stick by Ken. An excellent result.

Its like how many people will say Nicks is doing a good job by our brave loss to Melbourne.

It was Ports grand final. It wouldn't surprise me if Port drop away on the effort levels now. Or they will keep going until they get the loss that mathematically kills their season. Personally I hope they fight all the way to 9th. But they wont, I predict they will start putting in some kids. Gray needs to retire. He is cooked.

After all the huff and puff, Port only have two wins more than us.

Someone on the Port board says he’s reliably informed that the players have stopped listening to Ken. The bounce from round 6 has come from personal pride and talent but there’s not enough of a proper game plan to maximize it

Would not be surprised if true

Except the poor umpiring and our sh*t goal kicking in the 1st half pretty much killed us that game, Port Power didn't look in the game beside the 1st 10 minute when they kicked the 1st 3 goals then Fremantle took over and totally stopped in the last quarter.
