Freo could be in trouble. Weather forecast for Sydney this weekend is cold and wet . GWS could knock them off if it rains.

Its in Canberra.

It's not negative. I'm just stating that there's a good chance we won't finish in the top four.  Are we going to bury our heads in the sand?

No.  What we should all be hoping for  to bury is Brisbane, for starters.  
What a pathetic meaningless thread.

GWS and St Kilda both have something to prove and will want to finish the season off well, especially the Saints after last week.

Swans are in red hot form, but Saints might not get blown out of the water, and we might have another big win against the Lions.

To suggest we are not finishing top 4 a week before the final 8 is settled, is frankly, just posting garbage for the sake of posting garbage.

If we win, we're near-certain to play Sydney, with only percentage deciding whether it's at the MCG or SCG.

In the unlikely event Sydney loses to St Kilda, we will host:

  1. Collingwood, if they beat Carlton
  2. Fremantle, if Collingwood loses and Fremantle wins
  3. Sydney, if both Collingwood and Fremantle lose and Sydney maintains its percentage buffer over Brisbane
  4. Brisbane, if both Collingwood and Fremantle lose and somehow Sydney sheds so much percentage that they drop past Brisbane (who will have also lost to us)

If we lose, we can still finish top 4 but would need two of these things to happen:

  1. Collingwood loses to Carlton
  2. Fremantle loses to GWS
  3. Sydney loses to St Kilda and sheds enough percentage to drop behind us

Those are in order of likelihood. The last one isn't happening, because St Kilda stink. So if you want an insurance policy, get around GWS.

For a post that virtually all are saying shouldn’t be a separate topic, why is it getting enough oxygen to expand onto a 3rd page? (I apologise for adding to the topic)

I also cannot believe that people are responding to this thread thus one by one expanding the number of pages attached to said thread.

We're not beating Brisbane up there so as long as Collingwood beat Carlton which is likely or Fremantle beats GWS we will finish out of the top four.  If that happens we have to hope Sydney loses by more than us. Doesn't look good.

We're winning the flag!

And in the unlikely chance of a draw we would play Geelong.

I agree entirely.  I just wish people would not reply. How stupid are they?

Tbh everyone has the right to share their views, we’ve all encountered MFCSS at some point in time. Positive or negative, hopeful or cautious, it just shows that our current form is not as confidence inspiring. Nevertheless, I couldn’t believe how tight the table looks right now.. this will be a big week in footy!

Can’t believe how negative some of our supporters are.

im surprised there’s not a recent thread called “ we won’t win the 1964 or  2021 flag” 

 

 

It's pitiful, it's almost like they revel in the misery 🤔

Meanwhile I've added another to the ignore list, it makes Demonland way more enjoyable

sportsbet has it effectively 50/50 to beat Brisbane, I wouldn't be so negative.

“We're not beating Brisbane up there so…..”

Because they smashed us in the middle of last year….then easily accounted for us in the final in Adelaide and pulverised us on the G earlier this year…wait…what??!! 
 

FFS stop sooking and start supporting. If you actually let yourself enjoy these times, it’s a thrill ride. 
 

Or would you rather Less pressure and be focussing on another high draft pick?

Wanna bet? More sure of beating Brisbane than any other 8 team, only crew that make our offence look good, and our pressure is higher for longer. Easiest game of the next 4.

I think we can beat The Bears comfortably.

We ARE finishing top 4.

So there 😛

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
