I don't see why - only team to ever win the flag starting from outside the 4 was Adelaide.

The comp may be more even, but I don't think it will be any easier than history suggests to win a flag.

I just don't think Geelong have the hunger this year. Being 2-3 games outside the top 4 will be hard to make up in the last 2/3s of the season.

I don't think a team can win unless they finish top 4
