We'll call it a day there, folks. Great questions and discussion today, thanks a lot. An interesting few weeks of the season coming up, the bye can do strange things, will be interesting to see whether the status quo is the same a month down the track. Anyway, have a great football weekend, and we'll see you back here next Thursday at 12pm.
THREE weeks ago, in my Monday column for the Age, I outlined the reliability of the ''round seven rule'', and came up with a final ladder.
The round seven theory might still hold up, though the top eight has already changed by two teams since then, but boy that ladder is looking a bit sick, particularly the team I had finishing on top.
Carlton, the day of its Monday night clash with St Kilda, was riding high with a 5-1 record, and form good enough to justify it finishing with as many as 18 wins. Four games on, the Blues would be at long odds indeed to finish top, are going to struggle to make top four, and in their current state, could quite conceivably miss the eight altogether.
What do you think? Are we casting too much doom and gloom on the bluebaggers? Join a live blog with Rohan Connolly from midday Thursday.
