Odds schmods

What were the odds of North beating Richmond? $7.00?

What are the odds of Sportsbet going broke because they get it wrong more of the time?

With regards to us missing the finals, I checked the odds on TAB and they don't have us listed in that particular market.

Collingwood are the least favourite at $15. 

 

 

We are paying $1.005 on Sportsbet to make the finals FWIW

If Richmond lose to Brisbane on Sunday, we'll ostensibly be playing finals footy in 2022 even if we go 0-4 from here.

The best Richmond could go in that scenario would be 12-9-1 and I simply cannot entertain the notion of St Kilda beating all of Hawthorn, Geelong (away), Brisbane or Sydney.

Get you party poppers, balloons and champagne handy at 6pm Sunday.

No decision will be made until our season is over, which I believe a fair few posters have mentioned now. Richo talks about it here (about 5:30 in).

 

At the 2.30min mark Richardson talks about our mid season slump.

He mentions 'owning part of it' but is also open that part of it was Freo, Sydney and Coll succeed with a bunch of different things.

 Brisbane needs to win by about 88 points to jump us and go second this week…yeah nah.

Pies need to win by about 653 points to jump us…the way their luck is going at the moment I’d say that’s a chance.

The Swans worry me.

I had a look at the ladder predictor and top 2 is pretty much guaranteed if we go 2-1 from here.

The only way we don't finish top 2 is if Brisbane beat Richmond this weekend and we lose to Brisbane in round 23, and if Collingwood win all their remaining games against: Port, Melb, Carl and Sydney. It is highly unlikely but of course if they somehow manage we fall out of top 2, but I don't see them going on a 13 game win streak. .

I think it is likely Richmond beat Brisbane as their record at the "G" has been pretty poor including their form of late, so that will benefit us if indeed we slip up in round 23. Brisbane have to absolutely belt Carlton and St.Kilda to make up for the percentage gap which of course can also happen but I think Carlton will at least put up a solid fight.

Otherwise any 1 loss to Coll, Carl or Bris won't see us miss a home QF.

The chances are looking quite good, Let's goooo!

In a sadistic way I'm hoping the Pies win today as it would set up a massive game next week, and also beat the filth in front of a big crowd.

A nice 3% boost to 131.6% while shaving 5% off Freo to 114.9%.

My conviction about a top 2 finish wobbled a little last week after the Bulldogs loss last week.

Now firmly back on the finishing top 2 and a series of Home Finals!

3-0 - we finish 1st or 2nd.

2-1 - we will make top 4 unless Sydney go 3-0 and make up the 5% gap. If Brisbane loses to Richmond tomorrow, then Brisbane also has to go 3-0 and make up whatever percentage gap they have over us too.

1-2 - we will make top 4 unless three of the following happen:

  • Collingwood goes 3-0 or 2-1
  • Brisbane goes 4-0 or 3-1, or 2-2 and makes up the 6% gap
  • Sydney goes 3-0, or 2-1 and makes up the 5% gap
  • Fremantle goes 3-0

Side watch - Carlton can still miss the finals. They have Brisbane (away), us and Collingwood. If they go 0-3, they'll finish on 12 wins and are a good chance to be overtaken by the Dogs, who have GWS and Hawthorn and so should get to 12 wins as well, and are only 3% behind. Indeed, they could be passed by the Dogs even if they go 1-2, if the Dogs beat Fremantle next week. If they go 0-3, they're also a chance of being passed by Richmond, who would need 3 wins from Brisbane, Port, Hawthorn and Essendon.

when did we play The Filth in a "big match" like we are this Friday?

"Big match" would be a final - and I don't think we have played The Filth since 1964?, or playing a HnA match which means making a play for the finals or avoiding the wooden spoon.

So, I go back to 1976 to Bogan Park when we had to win to make the finals for the first time since 64 and The Filth had to win to avoid its first-ever wooden spoon.

It was even sweeter when we fixed up The Filth in 1976 18.20-128 ti 17.11-113 with Carman, Phil kicking 7 spectacular goals for The Filth (Carmen finished when we got him) and Biffin, Ray kicking 4 for us.

As The Filthstorian (that's a Filth historian) recalls:

"In 1976, Collingwood finished last for the first time in its history under coach Murray Weideman with six wins, more than any previous bottom side."

How sweet that The Filth weren't that bad but we give em a spoon even though we missed our on finals due to Footscray drawing with CarlTank at least we fixed up coach Weideman, who went round bashing our blokes in 1958 GF, as they sacked Weideman and then replaced him with Hafey ... Weideman could not stand that Hafey was the first "clean" (I mean not a coach from within The Filth) coach.

I hold grudges!

BTW I have a soft spot for Sam Weideman but I just wish Sam would change his name!

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
