    im putting a line through lions, pies, hawks and kangas. not that a couple of these haven't had their moments but teams above way more consistent considering to me there is probably only 4 top 8 spots that are really up for grabs.

    Oh cmon. This is ridiculous.
    We're 2-6, and the 2 wins were against bottom 4 mobs like us.

    Get off the fence and put the boot in...we dont mind. We probably deserve a bit of it :thumbsu:

    No chance.
    None.
    Nada.
    If i had ANY confidence whatsoever i'd go check the odds for us winning the flag this year. Must be juicy :thumbsu:

    Has there ever been a year with so many sides playing so unpredictably from one week to the next? Katy Perry's 'Hot and Cold' should be this season's theme song...if Masterchef hadn't already taken it. Fremantle, Richmond, Melbourne, Gold Coast, St. Kilda, even Carlton and Collingwood, heck pretty much every club bar Brisbane, you don't know just how they're gonna play any given day. Still early, although getting towards the middle of the season, and it's often so hard to tip.

    If you guys did get over the line, questions would be asked about what the heck was up with the early season form.

    I have to say wins against North and Brisbane have been pretty soft, so I don't really see much of a turnaround personally.

    GC winning 1 more game for the year, really you can't be serious, you must not watch them. Its your opinion though, but I feel that it is way off

    If I'm being honest I don't watch them at all lol. Considering I live in Canberra and don't have cable D: So yes, I'm not particularly qualified to comment on them - have they been playing some decent footy?

    Not sure how you can call the win over North soft. We have been competitive in most games so far and just came off 2 wins. Good game by the Swans.

    I mean they are inconsistent, but when they play well they play very well. They smashed Hawthorn by 86, Beat the Blues and smashed Geelong around the ground but only won by 25. They still need to get 5 of their best 22 back in. They should win 9-12 games IMO

    Lions, Blues, Suns, Hawks, Pies and North are probably toast. The other twelve could make it.

    This is my thoughts as well, although as soon as Richmond drop out of the 8 I'm writing them off.

    Waite kicks 7.1 instead of 1.7 and the game could have gone either way.

    WCE fans are easily the most delusional on this board.

    By quite a margin.

    I assume its all down to the chip that gets automatically sewn in to their shoulders the moment they pop out of their mothers.

    If Sydney lose today, I think their finals chances go down the drain. 2-6 is still a long way to get back I feel and if they were to go to 2-7 after today, then they're gone. They've got a good percentage for a team that is 2-6 and if they win today then I'd give them a decent chance of storming back towards the 8.

    You could say that about 80% of games
