Their best inside mid in Adams can’t get on the park. Should be back by finals they hope

Ginnivan not ruled out. Will have a bit of mongrel in him if he plays this week.

One game to go and we could still play 5 different teams week 1 of finals. Sydney home or away, Cats, Tigers, Blues, Dogs

giants almost beat the dogs last week, whos to say they won’t beat Freo at home this week?

can’t remember ever having this many perms and combs possible  in the last round.

I like that we have TMac on the come back, and likely to be back for the finals. Often under rated as to his value and impact on our forward line. 

Gotta beat Lions, but with Tommy back we'll be ready to have a red hot tilt at September irrespective.

And... imagine the glory of winning it from 6th..!

Brave coach and FD to pull the trigger on TMac in first week of finals…

Not sure who would go out either.

My hope is that the sun rule is tweaked for finals and becomes just another sub.

anyone else getting 1987 vibes about this years final round.

so many permutations with the final games of the season deciding who’s the last final spot (glad we’re already in this time) remember it vividly hanging on for the result in Geelong to go our way

Another game, another litmus test.
Whatever happens after our run home taking on most of the top 8, the boys will be battle hardened for the finals like no others.

The Saints defence has actually been pretty decent the last 5 weeks. Only conceded 100 pts to Geelong and surely you think they score at least 70 at Marvel.

The 9 goal margin will be in the heads of the Swans and I actually think because it’s so large it’ll distract them.

Saints biggest loss this year at Marvel has been 41pts (to Freo) and have won most of their games at Marvel this year.

I’m pretty confident this won’t be a blow out.

True, but Sydney are very good and St Kilda are not very good.

I'm hoping St Kilda get up for Hannebery and Max King has a determination to kick straight which sees him bag 5.0 or something.

Remember, in the unlikely event of a Swans loss, we will host Collingwood, Fremantle or Brisbane (imagine that - each of Sydney, Fremantle and Collingwood lose and we get Brisbane again!).

We need to send Russell Robertson to Max King tomorrow morning to teach him how to kick.  In my memory, he is the one player that we’ve had that went from ordinary in front of goal to extremely reliable.

We are 11-0 interstate

Swans lost to Suns and Lions at the SCG this year

I'm not bothered where we play

Further to your point:

We’ve beaten Sydney twice since 2001 at the MCG. Just TWICE.

That is quite frankly embarrassing over a 21 year period.

The pressure will be on us more at the G than at the SCG. 
It’s unequivocal now that our  preparation and execution for interstate games is second to none, dating back to August 2021.

On a positive note both Richmond and Bulldogs have interstate finals.  Probably:

Lions vs Tigers at the Gabba.

Freo vs Bulldogs at Optus

The Dogs should be blown off the park by any of the other 7 sides in the top 8.

Their win over us is the only time they've played well since Round 9.

Post-bye they beat Hawthorn twice, GWS twice, St Kilda and us.

But I fear they'll reset over the bye and Fremantle will do a Carlton and [censored] the bed.

On current form Brisbane will lose to Richmond.

Oh, ok. I will let Goodwin know.

Although, Geelong have lost prelims and GFs the last decade against teams lower on the ladder…

And anything can happen when big finals are played at our home ground and not theirs…

But no, you’re right, let’s just give up.

Pretty happy with my prediction.  Maybe look at things a bit more objectively next time.

I am objective as they come o_d, but I am never going to pontificate on any prognostication relating to the glorification of the evil that lives in Mordor (Geelong).

Happy trails friend.

    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.
