Ladder predictors are a waste of time. Here is the only prediction meaningful - No-one can beat Richmond on the MCG

It’s just a bit of fun, gets people discussing our draw, don’t take so seriously. We can beat tigers with a full side

I mentioned in another thread that we can make the finals with 13 wins as long as we keep our percentage up over 120. The ladder predictor was in line with that.

Has a team on 13 wins ever missed finals under the Final 8? 13 wins almost guarantees participation. 12 wins and % usually gets the job done.

Not under the current final 8 system (i.e. since 2000). But Carlton missed the finals in 1992 with a 14-8 record. 

Having said that, running through the ladder predictor shows that it's entirely feasible for us to miss the finals even if we get to 13-9. It would just be so MFC, wouldn't it? Last year we break the record for smallest percentage gap to miss, then we go on to be the first team in the modern era to miss with 13 wins.

Can I get odds on that because right now I will put money on it if so.

While we were poor against the filth, our prior six weeks were very good - excellent. If we can bring that form for the last ten weeks we will win 6-7 if the last 10 matches. That gives us 14-15 wins and a place in the eight, maybe even sneaking into top four if results fall our way!

Somewhere between 4-6 and at least one finals win would be a good progression from last year.
