But if we finish 4th, I'd love to have a crack at the Storm for a spot in the pre-lim straight away. And then if we lose, we have the fall back of a game at Brookie the following week. I think top 4 is crucial.Why is finishing top 4 such a massive thing?
I get that historically it is an advantage, but this year, with a game at Brookvale, I would rather finish 5th, and play at home, than have to travel to Melbourne. Every game after week 1 is a sudden death anyway, and I'm not a big fan of the week off for Top 4 winners.
It's much the muchness this year in particular, with the policy change.
You only need a 4 game run to win a GF.
