If we play Finals - it’s a big if - we will need at least two of scotty21’s 50/50 games. If we stagger into the Eight, only to be belted in an Elimination Final, as has happened so often before, will we have achieved anything worthwhile?
I think this is the year to finally win a final.
Three teams are fielding some of worst sides of all time - Hawks, North and WCE, . Richmond’s window is officially over. the reigning premiers look vulnerable (losing to Richmond and currently losing to GWS), the reigning premiers before that we have already beaten - Melbourne.
Teams that were suppose to be on the rise this year aren’t - Carlton and the Suns
and the rest of the finalist are pretty even
And finally, the premiership favourites Brisbane (after melbourne’s loss to freo today) - are also vulnerable playing in Vic.
If we can get a good side on the park, and we within striking distance we have to take it. If we are going to go on to win a flag, we have to shake this voodoo hanging over our heads and there is an opportunity to do that this year, with draw we have remaining.
