    Statistically, it is highly probable that there will be some upsets, form reversals (good and bad) and unexpected ladder changes over the next five weeks.

    Some teams expected to win are going to lose otherwise we could all win our footy tipping comps and take the bookies to the cleaners.

    Any team from 1-9 that wins five in a row from here will be a legitimate contender. That's not to say that dropping a game will automatically rule a team out but five in a row and you'll be looking sweet whatever happens around you.

    We just have to turn this one game streak into six in a row and we'll be right.

    I wonder when the team that beat the Cats 2 weeks ago will turn up again?

    Based on the comments in the media so far there is about as much chance of a GWS home final being played at the SCG as there is of Swans home final being played at Spotless. The GWS head honcho said GWS would rather play any home final against the Swans in Darwin than the SCG. But he sounded vaguely open to playing it at ANZ if it was against the Swans, which was big of him considering we'll be trying to weasel out of playing any home final at
    ANZ if we can.
    And while we're on the subject of getting ahead of ourselves, return plane tickets to Melbourne (from Sydney) for the GF long weekend (leaving Friday evening and returning Monday arvo) seem to be running at around $400 as of this morning.

    If we are to finish 3rd and play GWS it could be a chance it's played at the SCG.

    Assuming we finish outside of top 2, what would you prefer

    1) against giants at ANZ/spotess.
    2) against hawthorn and a chance to send them packing.

    Id take 1 and hope they get over-awed by the occation.

    Could also be:

    3) Geelong at Simmonds stadium if GWS drop more games than us in the final five weeks but we manage to stay ahead of Adelaide.

    That would be ok too I think.

    We've played against them twice this year, haven't produced our best footy either time, and should have 2 wins. We know how to beat them, we are good enough to beat them, it's just a matter of delivering in the day. GWS are a more difficult prospect because their style is more difficult for our side to stop. Although, they haven't been there and done that just yet. Purely for vengeance, I'd rather take Down the dirty Hawks, and then see perhaps the doggies finish the job in week two. How sweet that would be.

    The team that beat the hawks was pretty good & we have had it tough the last few weeks.
    Bulldogs ( top 4 team) - lose by less than a goal in last minute
    6 day break
    Geelong in Geelong (top 4 team) - win
    6 day break
    Hawthorn (reigning premiers & top 4 team) - lose by less than a goal in last minute
    8 day break
    McVeigh out injured, another newbie, 7 players under 20 games - play Carlton
    Scrappy win but a win
    7 day break
    Freo in Freo
    6 day break
    Port
    We have been almost playing a finals series

    As it should be.
