    We're getting desperate once we start hoping for draws.

    A high scoring draw would also help percentage wise. Now that's getting desperate!

    Our biggest problem with missing the 4 is not winning 4 straight but the prospect of travel to Adelaide or Perth mixed in. When we won the flag we played away in Perth week 1 home week 2 melbourne week 3 melbourne week 4. Now with the way the ladder could end up you never know we might get something like Home week 1 Away to Port week 2 then away to West Coast Week 3.
    We have noone but ourselves to blame though- we should of won tonight, we should of defeated the bombers and we should of really beaten WCE in Rd 1. Those are just 3 games that we have thrown away this year. We have nobody but ourselves to blame for our predicament.

    Hard to see the required combos happening- really probably need Port to win tomorrow but then it gives them a massive chance at making the 4 and then a 3 in 4 chance of getting either Geelong WCE or Port away if we make it through week 1. The only two teams I fear come finals time are Geelong or West Coast, but its a very tough ask to expect us to win 4 straight with travelling involved.

    Saying that, if we missed the 4 and got the right draw it could be Sydney in week 1 and then Melbourne for the other 3 weeks which would be doable!

    Definetly going to be a draw tomorrow.... I can feel it!

    A draw has about a 1 in 80 chance of happening. On the other hand, a major upset happens more often than that. I'd be barracking for a few underdogs in the next few weeks. Be sure to read ugg's barracking guides!

    Port lead by 5 with probably a minute to go.
    I support two teams: the SYDNEY SWANS and anyone who beats the West Coast Eagles... except Collingwood, Essendon, Carlton, Richmond, Hawthorn, St. Kilda, North Melbourne, Geelong, Melbourne, Western Bulldogs, Adelaide, Port Adelaide, Brisbane and Fremantle.
    Ok then, I only support one team: The SYDNEY SWANS!!!!!
