Collingwood smashes club attendance record

Collingwood is proud to announce it has broken the all-time annual VFL/AFL home and away attendance record, with 1,178,689 having already watch the Magpies in season 2007.  The all time VFL/AFL club attendance record previously stood at 1,169,551, set by Essendon in 1998.
The fact Collingwood has broken the record with one round still remaining is testament to Collingwood being the most popular club in the AFL, with the most loyal and passionate fans.

The Equation for Finals Position

Collingwood, now sixth, is currently on the same number of wins as fourth-placed Hawthorn and fifth-placed Kangaroos.
Overtaking the Hawks (118.32%) on percentage won’t happen, while the Kangaroos (106.35%) currently have a ‘points for’ versus ‘points against’ ratio of +121, while the Magpies’ (102.00%) ratio is +38. So, if both the Kangaroos and Collingwood win, the Magpies’ winning margin would need to be at least 84 points greater than the Kangaroos’ for the Magpies to slip ahead of the team from Arden Street on the ladder.
In terms of the round 22 fixture, Hawthorn faces a tough trip to Sydney to take on the Swans on Sunday, while the Kangaroos will clash with the Western Bulldogs at the Telstra Dome, also on Sunday. So, provided Collingwood wins on Friday night, Magpie fans will no doubt be barracking hard for both Sydney and the Bulldogs on Sunday.

Below are the possible scenarios for Collingwood:

Will finish 4th if…

  • Collingwood beats Adelaide
  • Sydney beats Hawthorn
  • Western Bulldogs beat Kangaroos

or

  • Sydney beats Hawthorn
  • Kangaroos beat Western Bulldogs
  • Collingwood beats Adelaide and its winning margin is at least 84 points more than the Kangaroos’ winning margin over the Western Bulldogs.

Will finish 5th if…

  • Collingwood beats Adelaide
  • Hawthorn beats Sydney
  • Western Bulldogs beat Kangaroos

or

  • Sydney beats Hawthorn
  • Kangaroos beat Western Bulldogs
  • Collingwood beats Adelaide but does not exceed the Kangaroos’ winning margin over the Western Bulldogs by at least 84 points.

Will finish 6th if…

  • Hawthorn beats Sydney
  • Kangaroos beat Western Bulldogs
  • Collingwood beats Adelaide but does not exceed the Kangaroos’ winning margin over the Western Bulldogs by at least 84 points.

or

  • Adelaide beats Collingwood

So much for predicting Collingwood in the bottom four this year!!
