Remember my one-off "Collingwood will make the grand final" post? Yeah well, this is another one of those.
We beat Adelaide fairly convincingly.
I didn't watch it, but we had most of our players out... Lukey Ball, Swanny, Reidy, Nathan Brown, Taz, Krakouer, and probably heaps more. Plus Keeffe went down during the match. And yet, we STILL won. That's pretty good, amirite?
I am right.
Anyhoo, we've got the Suns, Demons and then a bye. Plus West Coast after that, but it's at the MCG so shouldn't be too hard. And then Freo, also at the MCG, piece of cake.
The teams are all pretty even at the moment, so our draw isn't that hard. The only real in-form teams, at the moment, are Essendon (we beat them, and play them again in the last "dead rubber" round), Adelaide (we beat them and won't play them again till finals), West Coast (injuries), St Kilda (we only play them once), Richmond (only play once), Sydney (only play once), etc etc.
And with Hawks and pussycats and Carlton, yes they are hard. But those teams are going through their own rough patch at the moment, they aren't coasting through, so they are battling just as much as us.
It will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
I think Richmond* or Collingwood, both have seemed to come good in recent weeks. Maybe Essendon, too. Cats/Hawks/Carlton will be up there too, they are strong teams and will no doubt finish the season strongly.
EDIT: I saw the Avengers yesterday. It was AWESOME. Chris Evans is my new future husband, although he won't replace Chandler and taco-crazy Oliver but whatever.
*I have a slight soft spot for the Tigers. If Pies don't win the flag, I'd be happy if it was the Tigers. I probably wouldn't be happy if Tigers won the flag by beating Pies in the Grand Final, but whatever.
