    Games you would like to have seen

    Seeing theres no football at present - i thought id make a post to a game i went to many many years ago - and it was a really hard game where goals were precious - and it was a big name - the 74PF at the MCG between NM and Hawthorn I was only a kid at the time - and it was one of those games...

    Autopsy Rd 1 Geelong lose to GWS by 32 points

    Ive hardly posted from the off season - got very little interest However ( and someone may have mentioned this ) but if the worst happens and the season is called off - then the Cats keep their amazing record of having never finished in the bottom 4 since 1986 Geelong currently sit 14th on...

    Given there's no crowd should the GFC ask for Round 4 Geelong Cats vs Hawthorn to be played at GMHBA Stadium?

    I will give you a logical reason mate - Hawthorn allways beat Geelong in Geelong The last 12 games at KP between the clubs the Hawks won 9 of them Just imagine they move the game down their this season - and the Hawks beat the Cats yet again at KP - with their supporters in attendance - it...

    Prediction Who finishes highest out of Bulldogs, Essendon and Hawthorn in 2020?

    No i dont just dismiss games like that - they happen for a reason - because they are no where near good enough Go back one season to the 2018 season - Melbournes last game - the prelim against West Coast - they got annihilated - they got badly shown up - there were holes aplenty in their side...

    Prediction Who finishes highest out of Bulldogs, Essendon and Hawthorn in 2020?

    Hawks for me - im basing it on actual performances not hype - alah the Bulldogs Hawks finished the season very well culminating in a comprehensive 40 point flogging of West Coast ( who had the top 4 spot on the line ) over in Perth - dont mind the 2 key position recruits they have brought in...

    Opinion Best team "on paper" of Geelong footballers YOU have seen play

    Bill Ryan at CHF could take a screamer of a mark - i think he also represented Victoria and Peter Walker was a very reliable CHB The old Ryan and Walker - mention those 2 at one point in the 1960s - and it put the fear of god into everyone

    Opinion Best team "on paper" of Geelong footballers YOU have seen play

    You beat me to it Fred Id definitely have Denis Marshall in - did finish 2nd in a Brownlow Medal The other one id definitely have in is John Sharrock ( for David Clarke ) - Sharrock was one of those few players - who could kick 4 goals in about 10 minutes and in big games- mercurial player -...

    honourable losses

    You have to look at the quality of the teams contesting - when Melb lost to Ess in what 2000 - they had no possible chance of beating Essendon - so that makes your statement invalid Malthouse has consistently said that the greatest performance from a team that he has coached - is Collingwoods...

    Rate the best performing clubs of the AFL era (1990-). Looking beyond number of premierships and at overall performance

    What an absolute load of Craap The AFL is an entertainment business - I mean the draw is so compromised - you finish down the ladder you get an easier draw - what a joke The EPL have got the best system - everyone plays everyone twice - home and away to determine the champion team - - no...

    Rate the best performing clubs of the AFL era (1990-). Looking beyond number of premierships and at overall performance

    That is an extreme view - and there are exceptions to the rule Your club Collingwood - i dont know how you can be critical of them in 2018 - beat Richmond ( who were the clear no 1 team all year - and who had the 20 plus wins in a row at the MCG ) easily and that final in Perth against the...

    Roast Most hated team in the competition?

    The only Final which counts - is the big one - the Grand Final - weve been told countless times by Hawthorn supporters that qualifying finals - elimination final wins are irrelevant The GF Record is Haw 2 v Geel 1 and Rich 1 v Geel 1 - that is the actual factual record But how Haw and now...
