    Port won.
    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!!!!!

    The worst part is, now we have to endure the two dozen verses of the Port theme song.

    That is very likely to happen.

    Hawks have lost today and still have to play us and the Kanga's if they lose to Geelong will be under the pump to win both of their last two games.

    Win both our last games and we will finish 5th, but 4th is still a distinct possibility.

    I'm afraid the last 60 seconds of the Round 20 games played in Brisbane and Launceston have almost certainly cost the Swans a top 4 spot.

    Our draw at the Gabba and a mircle win from behind by Port over Hawthorn were terrible results for Sydney.

    Right, assuming Geelong win against the Kangaroos, we now need

    1. To win our two games

    and

    2. Any one of the following to happen

    (a) Kanga's lose to either Carlton or Bulldogs
    (b) Port to lose both matches against Geelong and Freo
    (c) West Coast lose to both StKilda and Essendon

    Now I expect both WCE and PA to lose next week, so we could go into the last round wanting one of those teams to lose to get us into the four.

    No it's not, both Hawthorn and the Roos (if they lose today) are still vunerable if they lose one of their last two games.

    I think we need 2 of the 3 to happen. We'll leapfrog Collingwood and Hawthorn if we beat them but we still need to overtake 2 of the Roos, Port and Eagles.

    No, because we can go ahead of Pies and Hawks when we beat them. Then we'll be 5th. Then if one of a, b or c happens we can go ahead of one of those teams and make the 4.

    No just 1. Ther other two will fill the other top 4 spots behind Geelong

    Ah yes you're right. My apologies. Doesn't seem too bad when you put it like that. Hope the Bulldogs win today so they'll have something to play for when they meet the Roos.
