Why would beating Geelong in rnd 23 be a "miracle of miracles"?

Pragmatic position to be in ... one that may well be the case. Still, the way the Cats played at home this round ... and we can beat Port by watching what we do with the ball at times ... and the season is nearly wrapped up ... there is the incentive to win all three and this is possible ... not unlikely as our humility dictates ... I'd reckon that with the best efforts possible and the best run possible with the worst of the umpires, we could end up 2nd on the ladder.  The Swans would be a danger for us - just have to be on the ball and determined.

If we don't, it has been a great season inside the most volatile environment for footy ever (Covid-19 pandemic).

Scott didn't look to worried about the GWS loss and fair enough as they had more scoring shots but 8.17.  However, their % took a hit and he has been watching it carefully.    

He may not have slept so well last night seeing what the Saints did to Sydney.  Geelong play Saints next week.

They can fall out of the top 4 if they lose the last two and Lions have three very good wins to bridge the % gap.  Suddenly Geelong need to keep winning to get the double chance.

Would much rather Lions in the top 4 than Cats.  Barrack for Lions today to keep the heat on Scott and his team of snipers.

Massive game v WC. 1st or 2nd if win and top 4 sealed, 4th if we lose.  I think Essendon are a chance v dogs today.

Agree! WC fighting for their spot in finals tomorrow so I expect them to show up! 

They are on very shaky ground playing us, Freo in what will be one of the biggest derby’s in years then the Lions.

Every chance of missing finals.

I have a special dislike of the Eagles fans since the 2018 prelim. I would be delighted if they missed finals.

Bit of money going on West Coast. Might just be our record in these games or maybe they have set themselves. Either play at our best we win. 

How does the team having 'set themselves' change the bookies odds? Are you implying WCE team is corrupt? 😀

Top 4 locked in :cool:  Lost interest in the rest!!  

What a dream if the final 4 order stayed as is (or Cats and Dogs swap spots).  We would play first final vs Port who look the most vulnerable.  Straight through to the Prelim...  (Altho Lions could still make top 4 but happy to play them in first final.  Also look vulnerable).

Can we make a covid plea to stop the season now🙂

Last night could be a disastrous win:

If we beat Adelaide but lose to Geelong

if Port win their last 2 games, 

Dogs beat Hawthorn but lose to Port

Geelong beat St Kilda and us.

Means we finish 3rd and play Port in Adelaide. Would mean yet another flight and date in hostile territory.

Mate really? 
Dogs won’t lost to Port at home firstly. Secondly winning games is never a disaster. We cemented a double chance last night. The rest is irrelevant

Hoping covid doesnt reek havoc with the finals especially if moved interstate.

Finals may well be played in Tassie and Geelong, deev. TBH I can't see finals being played in front of a crowd until at least the Prelims. And finals won't be played in empty stadiums. We won't come out of lockdown until all cases have been insolation for their infectious period. My conservative prediction is August 24. Absolute worst case scenario. That is before the weekend of the pre-finals bye. You have to expect 2-3 weeks after lockdown ends before crowds can return. That puts us in the week leading into Prelims. So it's a tight timeline.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
