Collingwood lost by less than 2 goals in the end.Pies goalless at their home ground against Geelong
Lions put on 40-0 to the giants in the first quarter.
Our last two opponents Brisbane and Geelong way on top.
Maybe we aren't that bad?
Then you remember we lost to the saints who lost by 110 last week.......
Believe folk believe!Sydney probably opened the top 8 door even more tonight with their loss to Hawthorn. The next month for the 6th placed Swans looks like this: Bye, Port Adelaide (away), West Coast (home) and Bulldogs (away). One could easily argue the Swans may go winless over the next month which obviously opens the door for teams like us if we can take advantage of 50/50 games like tomorrow against Fremantle. The Swans are currently four wins ahead of us on the ladder.
Win tomorrow and we're just 2 wins behind 7th/8th as well as 3 wins behind 6th with a game in hand on all those teams. 7th placed West Coast and 8th placed Richmond also happen to be playing each other on Sunday before they both have a bye next week so one of those teams is guaranteed to accumulate 0 points over the next 2 weeks. Then West Coast have to play the Bulldogs which is a likely loss for the Eagles and Richmond play St Kilda which could go either way depending on which Saints show up. Then we host Richmond at Metricon the following week...
tl;dr - A win over Fremantle tomorrow puts us in a position to genuinely compete for a finals spot in the second half of the season.
