Percentage calculation

Assuming Collingwood wins I’ll have a stab:

Thu night -  Fremantle V Bulldogs

Friday night - Geelong V Collingwood 

Saturday twilight - Brisbane V Richmond

Saturday night - Dees V Swans 

With regards to Thursday nights, they’re not afraid to put a blockbuster qualifying final on that night. In 2018 they had Richmond V Hawthorn so it’s not out of the realms of possibility we cop Thu night.

But if Collingwood lose we'll get Geelong v Brisbane, Melbourne v Sydney (or vice versa), Fremantle v Carlton and Collingwood v Richmond.

Question will be whether Geelong get first preference for finishing top, or whether the AFL want to put Collingwood v Richmond on the Friday night. If the latter, I think that means we will be Thursday night (8-day break for us into the semi final, so that there are no 6-day breaks).

My guess would be that the AFL would absolutely fixture Pies V Tiges on the Friday night as it would be the highest rating game on the highest rating night.

The AFL and channel 7’a desire will take priority over Geelong’s number 1 entitlements.

If the AFL gave the number one team preference on time and venue, we would’ve played Brisbane at the MCG last year in the qualifying final. Pert wanted our game at the G despite no crowds. The AFL said “no way.”

I'm sure I read somewhere that there will be no finals played at Kardinia Park this year due to the redevelopment of a large section of the stands and the subsequent limit on attendance.

you are correct no finals at the little school ground

I think with all the Friday night games we have been given during these floating fixtures we might just be given it again. We must be getting good rating s for our games.

Dees fans might not all go to games but I guarantee a massive number of them have great TVs.

If you want to fill in the gaps in Grapeviney's nice table regarding % and the Saints' score, just copy and paste the following into Google search to see the score Sydney has to get to beat our percentage:

For example, if the Saints have scored 80 points, then paste into the search field:

=1.30546190155091*(1542+80)-1979

that gives 138.459204316, so they need to score 139 points.  Replace 80 with whatever the Saints have scored as the match progresses.

Another option could be to just use the AFL app and the ‘live ladder’ function to see what is happening with ‘live’ ladder position / percentage movements during the actual game…..or am I missing something here?

BBP please don't spoil a good story with the mis truth!! 

It was Covid which was the determining factor in Finals locations in 2021. Pert was only being cheeky knowing full well that the G was not going yo be used at all in the 2021 Finals Series.

Yes, but if you want to know 'what happens if the Saints kick the next 2 goals', the live ladder won't help you.

In a nutshell, if you are Sydney you'd aim to have a 10 goals differential just in case.

I know that's what I would do because the Saints at home can easily score 70+ points.

Satin versus Lucifer right there.

This is gonna be tough. I live in Sydney and haven't been able to get to a Demons game since the couple of games we played at Homebush during Covid.

If Sydney finishes second, I'll be going to my first game for the season and my first Demons final ever.

    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.
