Some handy results falling our way the last few weeks with Melbourne's losses

Here's what the run home looks like

St Kilda: West Coast, Giants
Collingwood: Suns, Port
Bulldogs: Hawthorn, Fremantle
Melbourne: Giants, Essendon

Whether we make finals is all in our hands now, just need to win the remaining 3 games and we're in finals.

Relevant (updated now that Melbourne lost to Fremantle):

Assuming we win this week, we're in a pretty good position even if we drop one of the last two games...

If we lose to MEL and beat STK (finish on 40), we need one of:
  • STK to lose to WCE (finish on 36);
  • COL to lose to PTA (finish on 38);
  • WBD to maintain a worse percentage than us (finish on 40).
If we beat MEL and lose to STK (finish on 40), we need either:
  • COL to lose to PTA (finish on 38) or
  • WBD to maintain a worse percentage than us (finish on 40).

(Collingwood losing to the Suns and the Dogs losing to either Hawthorn or Fremantle would be very very handy but less likely.)

Or we could just lose this week and render the whole thing moot.

The short turnarounds and flights will hurt us.
Adelaide got a 7 day leisurely break and Demons get an extra day plus a short skip flight back to Brissie.

No one to blame but ourselves for being in this position but 1 hell of a fu** you to the club.

The good old "Queensland is bigger than you thought" trap. ;)

Flights from Adelaide to Brisbane are almost the same amount of time as flights from Cairns to Brisbane (2h 20 vs 2h 10).
Bloody hell. Freaky Qlders.

Still stand by the number of days though.
