    One of these sides was one of the best teams of all time.

    The other side was Richmond.

    Your performance was far, far worse.

    Wow. What a shit comparison. You do realize that you've just compared a bunch of AA awards after Geelong won that flag, whereas Richmond players haven't had a chance to win those awards. So:

    Matthew Scarlett - AA 2003, 2004, 2007
    Darren Milburn - AA 2007
    Joel Corey - AA 2007
    Jimmy Bartel - AA 2007, Brownlow Medalist 2007
    Steve Johnson - AA 2007
    Cameron Mooney - AA 2007
    Brad Ottens - AA 2001
    Cameron Ling - AA 2007
    Gary Ablett Jr - AA 2007
    Steven King - AA 2000

    And what did Port have in that game?

    Toby Thurstans - 2004 Premiership Player
    Domenic Cassisi - 2004 Premiership Player
    Peter Burgoyne - 2004 Premiership Player
    Kane Cornes - 2004 Premiership Player, AA 2005, 2007
    Warren Tredrea - 2004 Premiership Player, AA 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004
    Brendon Lade - 2004 Premiership Player, AA 2006, 2007
    Dean Brogan - 2004 Premiership Player
    Shaun Burgoyne - 2004 Premiership Player, AA 2006
    Darryl Wakelin - 2004 Premiership Player

    Hey mate, I wasn't asking what performance was worse, I was just asking whether your supporters were wearing it as a badge of honour.

    119 is a mark on history that will never be forgotten or surpassed. Ever.

    I'm glad you went to so much work, because you have once again shown your stupidity. Tell me how many Grand Finals did this super team win by 119 points? How about 100 points? How about 80 points? How about 60?

    What about the superteam in Hawks? They must have a heap of 119 point victories.

    Face it, in the whole history of the VFL/AFL your joke of a club holds the record. Just as they hold many other glorious records.

    Thats right. If it wasnt a record, then it would be stupid to quote it. 119 is part of their "rich history".

    Do you really believe the Richmond players are going to go on to become All Australian players any time soon? Cause I don't.

    I think people might have jokingly referred to it for about five minutes. No one actually cares though cause just like the 2007 GF has nothing to do with you, the 2017 GF has nothing to do with us.

    119 is the record losing margin of a grand final. Thats a fun fact and should be a question asked in any AFL Trivia night. Im betting most AFL followers know that record.

    119.... THE BIGGEST LOSING MARGIN IN A GRAND FINAL IN THE HISTORY OF THE VFL/AFL...LET THAT SINK IN....
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_AFL_Grand_Final

    The match, attended by 97,302 spectators, was won by Geelong by a margin of 119 points, the biggest in VFL/AFL Grand Final history. The victory marked Geelong's seventh premiership win, and ended its 44-year premiership drought.

    Janus says the GF has nothing to do with them.
    But went to the effort of researching the 2007 Geelong and 2017 teams AS records to prove a very flimsy point.

    Yeah he don't care lol.


    That viewpoint is about as flimsy as holding Paddy Ryder up as a role model and club leader.

    Should be lodged early tomorrow then I guess.

    I just thought the delay was a bit odd.given he was staying with Boak and they said Port are his club of choice early last week.

    The Crows had a bad loss, but yours was a humiliated, shameful debacle. We were still in with a chance in the 3rd when the margin got around 30pts.

    Your supporters left the MCG at HT after being over 8 goals down. That says it all.

    Is this the first week without footy? Don't seem to recall any game last week either.

    Somehow in their warped logic they will try and argue that a 119 point loss isn't as bad as a 48 point loss.

    EDIT: I'm too late, janus has already done it. LOL.

    Port last won a game back in August. They last beat a Top 8 side like forever.

    You would think the way their supporters carry on, they went deep in September.

    They should let that sink in for a while and percolate.
