It will be exciting! If I understand the (confusing to Americans) playoff brackets, the Pies won't meet the Saints until the very end of the Finals.

Not if one of them lose this week.

If one of them lose this week, they can meet in the preliminary final.

If they both win or lose this week, they won't meet until the grand final.

This finals predictor may help. But all you have to do is remember to put Collingwood as the winner in each game :)

Navy35- Of course you're absolutely correct about the Pies. I didn't want to say it in my earlier post. I treat the Pies like my teenager- support them 100% but never assume anything!

Hey, if Rocket follows Akers' game plan in the Herald Sun today and borrows the Saints' hard edge for the week ...my injury-plagued Doggies will put the "wobblie" back in the iconic phrase "Colliwobblie" especially as the Pies still seem to have their usual trouble slotting through the BIG sticks. Can Mick look even more dour than usual?? Hope to find out.
