We are an outside chance - let’s be bold!Should we take this thread down before we jinx it?
I feel like this is comparable to saying a batsman is batting well when he's on 99, for him to only end up going out the very next ball
Based on form the Pies and Giants games we are a good chance5 teams are vying for 2 positions in the 8. Saints in 6th are 2 games and % clear and only really need 1 more win to make it. Essendon in 12th need 4 wins out of 5 games to make it as their % is awful.
So we are looking at:
View attachment 942590
Dogs have Cats, Bye, Eagles, Hawks, Dockers
Pies have Roos, Blues, Lions, Bye, Suns, Power
Dees have Saints, Swans, Dockers, Giants, Bombers
Blues have Pies, Giants, Swans, Crows, Lions
Giants have Eagles, Dockers, Blues, Crows, Dees, Saints
I agree with the OP here. Dees are likely to wrap up 1 of those spots. Our chances hinge on the Pies game. If they win, they make the 8. If we win, we have to also beat the Giants or try to squeak in on %.
9 wins and a % around 110 will be the minimum requirement.
It's nice to have a thread talking about our finals chances with 5 weeks to go. It's been a while.Regardless of outcome, in finals contention is a bonus. I f***ing love that we are pushing this year and will be laughing at m*****f***ers next year. Charlie this make defences look stupid next season.
The saving grace was that we kept gold coast to a low score and doubled theirs meaning the percentage boost was significant anyway. Had the scores been higher we could have made up less percentage even if winning by the same or a bigger margin.As opposed to last night. Kick f****** straight.
If North Beat Collingwood this round, based on injuries and form, it essentially eliminates them from finals.Plus Don't forget...North def Collingwood this round needs to happen first.
