Brisbane v Geelong next week. Do we have a preference?
Geelong. If Brisbane lose to the Cats at home they'll have a hell of a time beating the Tigers at the 'G, meaning that if we lose to the Tigers next week we'll go Top 2 on the back of a win over the Hawks.

Cats wont lose to the Blues at home in R23.

EDIT: Also Collingwood will start favourites in their 2 remaining games, and are ahead of the Tigers on percentage. Richmond wont want to play funny buggers vs Brisbane because a loss there will almost certainly see them pushed to 5th by the Pies. Finally, if we f*ck up and finish 3rd I would probably want to play Brisbane at the Gabba over the Cats and Kardinya.

Dream scenario. Eagles win against Richmond and Hawthorn.

Next best scenario. Eagles win against Hawthorn but lose against Richmond. Collingwood beat Adelaide and Essendon. Then....

Option 1: Geelong beat Brisbane, Richmond beat Brisbane. Result: 1. GEE, 2. WCE, 3. RICH, 4. BRIS

Option 2: Geelong beat Brisbane, Brisbane beat Richmond. Result: 1. GEE, 2. BRIS, 3. WCE, 4. COL

Option 3: Brisbane beat Geelong, Brisbane beat Richmond. Result: 1. BRIS, 2. GEE, 3. WCE, 4. COL

Option 4: Brisbane beat Geelong, Richmond beat Brisbane. Result: 1. GEE, 2. BRIS, 3. WCE, 4. RICH

Give me option one thanks. Geelong winning next week is the only way we can finish top two with a loss. Go the Cats.

Probably a 10 goal win for the Cats, to force Brisbane's % lower. FWIW I think the Lions will win.
If Geelong spank Brisbane it would help. Brisbane will lose to Richmond, eagles will need to semi-flog hawthorn in 2 weeks to get second- anticipating a loss v Richmond next weekend.

We'll know our fate after next weekend but I can foresee the Richmond-Brisbane game being an absolute farce that no one in the media has cottoned onto yet and I wonder if they will if these results happen...
Geelong beat Brisbane
Adelaide beat Collingwood
Richmond beat us

It will mean Geelong guaranteed to finish top. If we beat Hawthorn, then Richmond go into the game against Brisbane knowing if they beat Brisbane, they'll know by how much they need to win by to take 2nd spot OR
they can lose to Brisbane and let them take 2nd spot and they can take 4th and play Geelong at the MCG in week 1 of the finals.

It's a huge advantage to have, to set themselves up for every game at the MCG for the rest of the year.

That Crows/Pies game is sneakily crucial. Collingwood win both, Richmond can’t tank the last game for 4th.

A loss will see them fifth, which is still a game at the G, and a win see them play at the G vs Geelong or Collingwood, but it’s a muuuuuch bigger risk.

A draw between Brisbane and Geelong could be either calamitous or excellent depending on whether we beat Richmond or not.
Won't matter, we'll smash Richmond and Hawthorn on the way to top 2 and winning 3 finals to make it back to back on the way to the next 10 flags in a row.

True - but I'd prefer to play the Cats at the MCG than either of the above - which is where the final "should" be played.

So another cats player gets a free pass from the mrp. Rigged.
So Christian said that dragging a player to the ground, forcefully, as a separate action, causing significant force to the head 'was not unreasonable in the circumstances'

Seriously wtf. I was under the impression that there is no reasonable circumstances in which you can forcefully cause an opponents head to hit the ground. Has to lose his job at season end, he is now clearly biased or incompetent (or likely both). Too many inconsistencies.
