Well if we beat Lions, odds are we play them in Sydney. Are you happy with that?

At least it’s a double chance and to date we haven’t lost interstate this season. 

Depends on margins it could also be at the G.

We have a 39.29% win ratio at the SCG with 11 wins and 17 losses. It hurts we have to rely on other results. But would be depressing to finish 6th and play Richmond after being 10-0. Double chance means we could win the flag despite our form this year. Lose against the Lions and our season is almost certainly done.

Podcast on AFL website this morning from Damien Barrett.

"Ed was right",   with Barrett noting Ed Langdon was right about the Pies being 'one trick" - which he was and many in the media agreed supporting him at the time.

Hopefully it brings a smile to Ed's face this morning after a rock climbing effort probably.

Who would have thought a smart guy could be right!

And a lot of those loses were in the period when we couldn't beat ourselves in an ultra club game.

On the topic of Ed, any reason why Carlton supporters were booing him on the weekend?

Were they sticking up for Collingwood or something?

Maybe Ed said they were all Souv and no laki - who knows, they generally are a pretty dim lot

Either way you can cut through that irony with a Tim Shaw steak knife.

Heads are going to roll at Essendon after that insipid performance. The straw that broke the camels back for sure.

Does North try and win this weekend  avoiding B2B wooden spoons or do they flop around lose and take 1st draft pick.The player will probably refuse to sign up...lol

Yes .Heard this at the ground. It was very half hearted and amusing compared to the loud booing to cripps right through the game. But now I'm glad he beat the wrap so he can deal with the pies on sunday

I couldnt understand why most posters wanted pies to lose. Now we're in real pickle. Pies winning was much better as they have a putrid %. Swans% better than ours. And they play garbage next week.

Think it's just force of habit.

As the blues have a much chance of beating the Pies. If we both lose we stay above pies. Swans will win for sure. Saints nothing to play for

It is a great pity that King didn't get the Saints up over the Pooh Bears.  He flung his body and legs around as if he needed to kick the ball over the grandstand.    On the same topic, Gawn for his first point could have kept his hand on the ball for longer while dropping the ball and wouldn't have needed to chase it with his foot.  It makes you love TMac even more.  The big guy kicked like a back man but now his run, drop and leg are on the same line with mathematical precision.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
