I can only see it happening if every side falls over with food poisoning and the like leading into clash.

On current form, we would literally need more sides to fall over than Bradbury in the winter Olympics and that's including his semi final

Although there's a little part of me that remembers the days of old and wants to believe if we can just make it to spring and with a bit of drier weather we could just...

Although more realistically I'm expecting Kenny to get excited soon and try to go back to a shorter forward line in some desperate failed attempt to prove he was right all along.
We can beat any side in the league anywhere in any conditions.

But doing it another 6 times in a row? We'd probably need a LOT of food poisoning.

We don't need anything from the oppositions end.

All we need to do is turn up, oh and Hinkley not lose the game at selection or wait until its game over to make a match winning change..... Whens the last time that all happened 6 times in a row ?

How's the pro Hinkley crew coming out of the woodwork.

We've had 2 wins, against 2 of the sides travelling the worst in the comp at the moment, and all is somehow forgotten???

Win the next 2 and yes, suddenly the year is back on track, we make finals, and we get a PASS mark. A frickin pass, that's not something to be celebrated after years of failure.

However Hinkleys issue has never been that he isnt a capable coach who cant get us to pass marks. In reality we've pretty much won 12 games nearly every year, so he's always generating these sorts of years, close or just below pass marks.
The problem is that he never extracts MORE out of the group. He never inspires the group to perform better than mediocre. He has failed so many of our players and their development. Years of failure in big games, typically mediocre results in every year, and every time we finally look like breaking out he's failed to get us the results we need to take that next step. Some coaches have that magic. Hinkley just doesn't.

The stars have ******* aligned where 7th and 8th are doing their best to fall over at the last hurdle and open a spot up and two teams above them are decimated with injuries as well as the teams we are running into.

It's almost comical to hear us being touted as a September threat, from what? Coz Nick Riewoldt was smoking some crack and reckons we could give a shake to anyone in the top 8 based on nothing more than a hunch? lol. The footy media falls for their own trap of not being able to look past the current results and view them with any context whilst ignoring what is a season's body of work. It's not an open year we are miles off of the top 8 teams (when all fit), fu** Richmond just bitch slapped us a few weeks ago and are getting stronger lol

If Hinkley wins us a flag, we've won 8 games in a row including 4 against top 8 teams in the cauldron of September.

If Hinkley manages that, he's maintained the forward structure and managed to keep us switched on and dealing with pressure for 2 months.

Of course he can stay if he actually changes his coaching philosophy and makes us successful.
Everyone's had amnesia about Richmond smashing us a the G like 3 or 4 weeks ago lol. Next time we play them they'll more than likely be even stronger with more players in but hey PORT COULD GO ALL THE WAY.

If we win the flag, I hope John Butcher is on stage to present the cup to Hinkley and our thousand captains.
Lol you just know getting barrelled out of the first week of finals will be mission accomplished, co-captains justified, ken justified, koch with a raging boner after looking at himself in the mirror

If that happens then Danny Butcher should present the finals participation ribbon

Individual teams aren't the problem. There is certainly no superteam who try as we might we could never beat. It's beating 4 good teams in a row that is effectively 2 Everests stacked on top of each other for a Ken Hinkley coached side.

If we end up playing GWS in that first week of the finals. We've got a great chance of at least winning one, would need a miracle to go any further than that though.

I think Norths injury list is too big
If things go as I expect, Crows win, Port lose, we are back out of the 8. If Essendon happen to win 1 of their 2 they will stay in the eight, so that means the Cows have to lose their last game and we have to win and even then % will play a part.
So nothing is set in stone even making the finals.
