(If) we win next week against Brisbane what is our preferred outcome for the QF?

1.) Finish 2nd and play Sydney at the MCG

2.) Finish 3rd and play Sydney at the SCG

3.) Finish 3rd and play Collingwood at the MCG

I for one think a 3rd place finish playing against Sydney at the SCG is actually the best option. We play really well away from home and I think the hostile environment will be a good intro to our finals series and it will give extra motivation.

I don’t think any of these are relevant for us. We will lose against the lions and finish 5th or 6th.

I'm more confident against Brisbane than I have been against any team going back to the Bulldogs game. Could not visibly see us beating Collingwood or Carlton, had bad vibes against the Dogs and uncertainties about Freo. If we push Brisbane around a bit we win. I question their ability to win under genuine finals pressure.

Maybe GWS win in Canberra, and maybe Coll lose to Carl…

We’d be 4th…

If we lose to Brissy then we will play either carlton or the dogs. I would rather the dogs so lets just ensure we win and get double chance.

Now that the Pies losing to the blues seems a real possibility there are new realistic outcome. 
we lose, pies lose. Finish 5th and play the blues. Not a bad outcome. 

can’t see us making % up on the Swans so it’s either

Away to Swans PL

Tigers or Blues at the G   EF

I can understand that given our last few encounters with them. Sooner or later they’ll get one back. We are playing poor, they aren’t that much better. On the eve of Finals at their home deck, I think they get it done and Freo take the 4th spot.

Man looking at the options, I’m still cut at Max King. Saints would give Sydney a game and lions would be 4 pts behind us 

even if we lost next week we’d probably be fourth

Freo will likely beat GWS so if Collingwood beat Carlton, we will drop to 6th.

Hardest draw in the league and still a chance of 2nd. That said those losses mid season killing us now and having to rely on other results feels dirty. Saint will get touched by 50+. 

I’d much rather play Swans in Sydney in a QF than play the Toigs at the MCG and risk get eliminated by those flogs.

We'll beat Brisbane next week. As soon as we apply some pressure they will fold like a cheap suit. They are the definition of a flat track bully

Sydney will win handily and finish second on %

So I reckon it's a QF at the SGC for us. And I'll be there if it happens

IF the Pies win , Dees and Lions Draw , Freo win and the Swans lose. The top six would be Cats,Pies,Demons,Lions,Freo then Swans. This would be great for us .

In what universe is this going to happen?

  I rate Sydney as our biggest threat  and most worried about at any ground.

A universe where Max King can kick straight?

Upsets can happen. I rate the Dees a premiership threat, and they lost to the 9th placed Bulldogs...

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
