The AFL ladder predictor is out of commission at the moment, but I have found the below one:
What I found:
I’ve been on the ladder predictor picking us all the way and trying to pick the most obvious choice for other games and …
… the crazy thing is that while it might only take 14 wins to make the top 4, and we “could” make it if we win 15 (all the rest of our matches) but we would also have to win 14, only dropping one game, just to make the 8.
13 is unlikely to cut it for us, the way the draw falls and our poor percentage unlikely to get us past other teams.
While we can help flatten the top half of the 8, with having just played West Coast and playing the rest of the top 5 in our remaining 9 matches.
Unfortunately we only play 2 teams, North and Hawth, who we are in range of, who are in ladder positions 6 to 11 above us who have 2 games and percentage on us, so we have to rely on other teams to bring those above us back to the field.
So on the upside, we will have to be in almost 2000 like form to make the 8, so if we do, especially if we can beat Richmond in round 22 and Port Adelaide away in round 23, then there is no reason why we can’t go all the way.
I did entitle this thread “The Impossible Dream” …
So if we don’t fall down before then, our two biggest remaining hurdles are at the end and if we fall at both of them, we most likely don’t make the 8.
That is by my calculations, how about yours???
