Cracking round of footy approaching, with every game (exc. GCS v Car) holding importance in Final 8 calculations.
I realise I’m posting this a fraction early this week, but there are a number of games which warrant some early discussion, and selection this evening will be very interesting.
From an Essendon perspective, any side from 4th position down to Adelaide in 12th is gettable, so we want those sides to lose.
I still believe Adelaide def. Melb is a preferred outcome, as it brings the Demons very much in our sites given their problematic draw.
Obviously, it keeps the Crows dangerously close, but they have their own challenges to come.
Rich v Coll in front of 90k at the G on a Sat arvo is Game of the Year.
Hopefully the Tiges win to give themselves a buffer on 3rd place.
Should be a ripping contest.
Can Brissy cause a boil over down at Kardinia Park ?
Hoping Geelong are drinking their own bath water, and the Lions can catch a break on them early.
Harris Andrews may return also.
Geelong need to lose 1 of these games now (Freo being the other), to realistically create another spot in the 8.
The Giants will win by 40+ without raising a sweat, and GCS will continue Carlton’s misery.
Talk of Oliver and Hogan leaving the track early for the Dees.
Can’t afford to miss either, or have them less than 100%.
Playing some good footy Melb, and will respond, but I think the Crows at home might just get the 4 pts.
Adelaide by 10pts
Great selection of games on the Sunday also.
Hopefully the Eagles can place another nail in Norths season down in Tassie, otherwise they will be right back in contention.
IF the Bulldogs win only 1 more game for the year, please let it be this one.
An upset here would seriously bunch up the ladder, and realistically place Port in jeopardy of missing Finals altogether.
I hear the Bont will be back.
Upset please !
Freo v Hawks is 50/50.
Sandi might return.
Go Dockers !!!
I’m going to watch an obscene amount of footy this weekend.
Probably need a girlfriend
