Who is ready to tell the truth about some of the legs?

One of the best rounds in modern AFL history is coming.

When you look at the ladder only once, it tells you that the 15th round will be big, but when we look back at history, it has been decades – at least – so much fun since the whole weekend.

That depends on how close the teams are to each other.

To summarize quickly: Eight top teams, including 1st v 2nd, 3rd v 5th and 4th v 6th, all play each other.

But surprisingly, recent matches do not end there. We have 7th v 8th 11th 12th 16th v 18th 15th v 17th plus the relative cliff in 9th v 13th and 10th v 14th.

Overall, according to Twitter statistics Guru Swamp, the total ladder difference is 19 places – just like 1st v 2nd one, 3rd v 5th double gap, and so on.

This is the lowest in the 18-team season with nine rounds of play and a total of 29 points in the distance.

But co-analyst Insight Lane tweeted, “We haven’t even had a round of 16 in this group stage – the minimum difference in eight rounds is 22 points.”

Based on all of this, we can say that this round is very close to what the AFL has seen in over 30 years.

And, further to the point, all of this means that this round will be very important.

The top four eight teams are guaranteed to lose – they are almost unbeaten – almost all four. And every single game involving the top eight teams is a no-brainer.

The Sydney-St. Kilda loser has a good chance of advancing from the top eight to the 11th. The Gold Coast-Port Adelaide is the ultimate destination for virtual destruction.

And North Melbourne or West Coast is their second chance of winning the season and be the leader in the race to get rid of the wooden spoon.

How nice.
