In Melbourne's last game at Punt Road before the Tigers become co-tenants of the MCG Ron Barassi was sensationally reported and suspended for four games, causing him to miss the finals series, despite evidence showing he may have been innocent.

The Demons hadn't been convincing at Punt Road over the years, but with their finals hopes on the line they ran away with an easy victory.

Despite the victory, and a 12-5 win loss record for the season Melbourne were still not assured of a spot in the finals, but they could also finish second and win the double chance.

For Melbourne to be tipped out of the four it would require them to lose in the last round and for both Essendon and St Kilda to win. To finish second they would need to win or draw and for Geelong to lose.
