Kane Turner is such a piece of s**t.

Didn't follow the game day thread so maybe this was mentioned already. But that score review in the 2nd quarter where he purposely clapped as McAdam took his shot and then claimed to have touched it! What a ******* cockroach of a footballer.

Squiggle has Port finishing 12th - a game & % out of the finals... the same gap they are at present.

They need to make up 2 games on other sides in the last 8 games... which is unlikely as they need to win 7/8 games remaining which is very unlikely.
Ive always felt that they would need to win the Showdown to make the 8.

Realistically they have 2 games in which they can pencil in as wins, Giants and Dons at home.

Dont worry, I expect the neighbours to pop in during the week, Im sure they will let you know their chances.

They need to win 6 of 8 I reckon.

The other issue they have is they still have Melbourne (A), Geelong (H), Fremantle (A), Richmond (H), Collingwood (A) to play.

They still have us in the last round, Essendon (A) and GWS (H).

We have still outscored Port so far this year which I find incredible given our lack of forward fluency.

Dons is at Marvel which the Dons play quite well.

If they are in the 8 by the end of round 21 they will stay in.

Dew is lucky to get an extension in my opinion. I get team has improved but they still look like missing the top 8 which is significant given their talent. Says alot about the clubs expectations.

For Port to make the 8 they will need to win all of their home games (2 of which are against Richmond and Geelong) and then two away games, they play Freo, Melb, Essendon and Collingwood away.

I reckon they'll go 4 and 4 in the run home and finish around 10th.

I've got them 5-3 for the rest of the season finishing 12-10 overall, which won't be enough to make it. I have them winning all of their home games plus Essendon away but losing to Freo, Melbourne and Collingwood.

Gold Coast is a sporting club black hole, doesn't matter what support is given to them they'll never be successful.

Literally what we did for 20 years and what everyone in here didn't want us to do again. We can't complain that we are bottoming out when that's what everyone wanted

No, you bottom out by getting rid of your over 30s and rebuild at the draft and trade table while keeping your quality younger players and pushing out the list cloggers.

What we did was get rid of some over 30s, give stupid contracts to others and get rid of our quality younger players.

The players mentioned are not younger players that we got rid of. They were either older players or players that asked to leave but would have otherwise kept.
Sure we could've kept the older guys maybe finished 6-10th the last few years, but would be even further from a flag than we are now
