So, for anyone who hasn't kept up with the season, we are in the middle of round 23 (the final part of the regular season) and it has been juuuust a bit exciting. Here's my quick summary... First, Port Adelaide (#3) faced off against the Western Bulldogs (#4), with the winner possibly moving into 2nd place on the ladder (home game in the first round of the finals). Port scored 3 straight Q4 goals to inch ahead, then held on for the win despite a late push by Western (their last kick with :03 left fell just short). Melbourne (#1) played Geelong (#2) and found themselves down 40+ points in Q3... only to roar back in the 4th and kick a goal after the siren to win and take the top spot for the home and away season, and the top seed for the finals. Honestly can't say enough about how exciting that last quarter was. If you can find a replay, you should watch it for yourself. Brisbane started out their game vs. West Coast (playing for #8, the last spot in the finals) in the fifth spot, and also behind the Bulldogs on percentage (teams with the same number of points in the standings are ranked according to their total percentage). The top four teams basically get into a sort of double-elimination bracket for the finals (i.e. playoffs), which is a huge advantage. That meant that even if Brisbane won, they were likely to be ranked behind Western because they hadn't won their games by as many points as the Bulldogs. After a close game for 3+ quarters, Brisbane starts pushing ahead and increasing their lead, which subsequently pushes up their overall percentage - in fact, they found themselves tied w/ Western's percentage at 132.8% with just a few seconds left... and then they kicked a behind to go to 132.9%, and secure that fourth place spot. Definitely felt like an NCAA tournament buzzer beater IMO. I know Obelix could do a better job wrapping up all that, but it's been a super fun round so far and just wanted to share.
