Round 16 Non - MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Big games this weekend to influence final 8 and positions therein.

  • Tonight:  The heavyweight game - Syd vs Cats.
  • Friday night: The revenge match:  Tigers vs Crows
  • Sunday: The hopeful vs the injured:  Ess vs Pies
  • A few potential % boosters:  Power, North and Demons.

Last week I was hoping for a % boost for us and other upsets to solidify our spot in the 8...well, the upsets happened...😞

This week, I worry that certain upsets might knock us out of the 8. 

At this stage I'm just hoping we win...

There is a good chance 5 of our threatening rivals could go down. Cats, Hawks, Crows, Giants and Bombers. The horse has bolted for us in the top four. Better if the current top four keep winning.  I don’t think Port or North will slip up against easy beats like us. A win is a non negotiable for us as is a bit of luck around the grounds.

Quite interesting following the soccer with the Russian and now Georgian commentators. Cannot understand a word which shows how unnecessary they are. Just need them on to give a bit of crowd noise.

I picked the cats by 3 points. All the 32 point teams that lost last week will win this week with the hawks beinqg in the greatest danger of losing.

Daisy Pearce is hands down the best thing about this coverage. She actually does her job as a boundary rider by informing us of players coming off injured (idiots like Ling, Richardson and Watson just tell us what we've already seen). She also provides good insight and asks good questions in interviews.

Agreed.

Other than in games against us, of course, we need Richmond, Sydney, West Coast, Port and (vomit) Collingwood to win as many games as possible, taking wins off our rivals for the final three spots in the 8.

Also need some more upsets from the bottom 6. Brisbane getting an upset win over Adelaide or North at home, or Fremantle beating Hawthorn at home, would be useful.

Agree, flick over to the Storm Dragons,  one of the great first halves in a long time .

Missed a lot of the game but just turned on and just cannot understand these absurd 50s

Cat marked; Jones right beside him when he marked it, immediately ran around behind him .... 50!!!!!!!!!

That was an absolute shocker.

The protected zone 50 rule really needs to be overhauled/removed.

Swans have got the good mcCartin. Only 18 but showing more than his big bro. Shows how much high draft picks are worth as he went in the 30’s

Can we transfer our Round 21 game against the Swans to the SCG?

The 50m penalties are proof positive that the AFL is run by complete idiots.

This vision of players running around opposition marker with hands in the air "I never dunnit guvna" is literally the most ludicrous thing I've ever seen in football. Risible. Dill should be sent to the gallows (figurative! Figurative ! Hi AFL Stasi! 👋🏾👋🏾

I dunno about that. We just played big brother into his best form, maybe he'll never stop and the Saints will end up on the same wins as us come round 23.

That result really hurts us. We will need to find our mojo very quickly. With the Hawks and North to make a huge charge (they have so many games against lowly teams) we will not only need to win our winnable games and win well (Freo, Bulldogs, Gold Coast) we will need to find a few more against some quality teams and teams finding form. Lose this week and that’s all she wrote.
