Knew wobbles would win.

Been set up all week for them to take this out.

Lose a close one against a cellar dweller, be smashed by the media all week.

They were always going to win this game.

I had a gut feel they would win just for all those reasons you mentioned above , mind you eagles were destroying them in the 3rd and for most of the game but didn't put them away , Eagles tired and rest is history.

There was a moment in the first 5 minutes of the last quarter where I thought that the scum could win the game. I'll have to go back and watch it but gee, if you get on top of the wegirls they panic. You can see all over the ground that there are a lot of front runners in their playing group.
Yeah good call, they're too tall when the whips are cracking, no runners, their midfield went to s**t. NicNat looks like a beast for a quarter then his lack of fitness shows. It won't get better for him either.

We’re percentage behind two teams, so we need two games to make up on them , which we most likely won’t. The only spot available is Brisbane’s and it could come down to our clash with them. We also have WCE and Collingwood who have trounced us recently. Nothing is as simple as you’re suggesting with the season that we’re seeing. You can’t pencil in wins anymore if you’ve seen the recent results.
Win on Sunday and it's one game behind second, if eagles win then it was two games behind second.

We haven't played the eagles for what feels like years, stop worrying, we keep winning and we make top 4. Just enjoy the ride that is the last 7 games at the G, worrying is not going to change things.

We win next two and pies and eagles lose next week and guess what, equal second baby with 5 to play.

No surprises really. :cool:
Pendles. Collingwood's secret 'Free Kick For' weapon.

He never takes possession of the ball if someone is on his hammer, waits for any contact no matter how minor, spins and flops, and appeals for the free. He gets it every time.

He falls over. Probably tripped or pushed. Free to Pendles.

He goes to pick up the ball with an opponent nearby. Umpire reasons: "Pendles just looked at me. Was that high? It must've been high. Free kick Pendles."

He plays - he gets a free.

He's Simon the Likeable to the Umpires.

Death Taxes and Pendles gets frees. He need only appeal or glance towards an umpire and plead with his sad eyes.

I'm a green jelly bean.

Pendles is the old Selwood for theatrical frees.
Fell backwards and gained the free which changed the game against the Dons.
So many cases.
How can you not like Pendles?

I’m not worrying , but being realistic rather than simplistic as I believe there’s only one top four spot up for grabs. That is Brisbane’s spot. We win Sunday we will be one game behind Pies and Eagles plus %, which effectively is two games behind them.
Our record against the Eagles is 50-50 at best over history and even with Rance, so without him we will go in under dogs. Their forward talls love to feast on us and no Rance against them will be a tough assignment.
Pies have had the wood over us, so again we will go in under dogs.
This weekend we are hot favourites, but this will tell us nothing. I believe the Brisbane game will be the decider on where we finish, but a win over Pies or Eagles will help immensely. I cant see us getting to second , but more happy just making the top four and avoiding an Eagles final over there as we will have a difficult game over there. Cats first and us fourth is awesome.

It’s alright though, we don’t need second to win a Premiership ;)
