Both Melbourne and Freo will lose next week they play St. Kilda and Geelong respectively. If Melbourne win/lose this match they will get picks 1 and 2 regardless. If Freo lose this match they will get picks 3 and 18. if they win they will get one of picks 3, 4 or 5. So certainly the insentive is for a Freo loss and Melbourne win. I think Melbourne are outsiders because their team has so many outs and they clearly tanked some weeks ago. But I think they will be trying this week.
I dont think there's too much into the draft pics,look at Daniel Rich for instant!With the priority pics,dont they say you lose a pic when you reach 4 wins for the season,confused!Freo also has Sandilands who should run riot aswell as the Dees have no answer for Pavlich imo!
