8th is still possible even if we lose, but that will be relying on Essendon actually putting in some effort so its a very small chance. And that would also mean West Coast in Perth which is the least desirable finals match up.
Has it been confirmed that WC get to play in WA?. I don't know how that works unless their Premier loosens the reigns on border crossings

Looks like even if we had beaten North Melbourne & Fremantle (provided we win on Friday) we still would've ended up finishing 6th. Either way, finishing 6th or 7th nets us the same result - elimination final on neutral ground. Only difference is with 2 extra wins we'd have already clinched finals.

Hopefully we get the win on Friday and look back on it not having cost us anything.

I'm thinking if we lose to GWS we finish 9th.
Otherwise we are betting on an out of contention Essendon to decide to make a statement against melbourne, or the same scenario with Freo and Bulldogs.
Under those circumstances GWS would finish 10th, but they will still be motivated because they still get in if Melbourne and Bulldogs both lose.

if we lose by a point, melbourne will have to win by 45 points to make it

i just can't see us not making it unless we absolutely sh*t the bed

god now i feel like i'm jinxing it
It's about a 50 point swing. In all likelihood if we were to lose a close one it'd be around 1-2 goals meaning Melbourne would have to beat Essendon by about 6-7 goals. Actually possible as they'll know exactly what they need to do before their game and may even set up to score heavily / play a much more attacking brand.

Personally think we're out if we lose. Said last week it was our biggest game in 10 years well this trumps it.
