As much as I would like to see Collingwood vs Richmond grand final, the pies cant be trusted, we are to injury prone.
Richmond are humming at the right time and it pains me to acknowledge but they are the team to beat.
Pies, WC, GWS,Crows, Cats, Port and Bombers all cant be trusted.
Brisbane are impressing the sh1t out of me but surely not this year. Then again everyone fell when Steve Bradbury won gold, Brizzy may stay standing the longest.

I think WC home advantage may get them there and if it does, i think WC vs Richmond.

Tigers win, bigfooty becomes unbearable once again and i switch off the computer for a while.
The only issue will be dealing with my Richmond supporting mates, who before September 2017, i didnt realise even followed them.

I'm going to stick with a WCE-Collingwood Grand Final

Next tip would be a Geelong-Brisbane as I see a few similar shades from 2007.


Been a great ride this season and I'm loving the fluctuations in form. Great to see several teams have their say in proceedings.

Wouldn't be so confident.

GWS are flaky even Essendon were able to beat them.

Your 8 wins were against teams below you on the ladder.

Geelong and Tigers are Brisbanes' first real test
In almost 2 months
And when we beat Geelong...

Geelong are flaky even Fremantle were able to beat them

Lol. Funny thing that when you sit 2nd on the ladder that our wins are teams below us.

Agree that Geelong and Richmond will be HUGE tests. As were our 2 weeks against GWS and Port on the road.

Can only play who is in front of us. This weekend it's a very inconsistent Geelong at a stadium we have played very well at.

If we are minor premiers and win the flag

Will not count as the other team was below us on the ladder

Haha what?

When we are 2nd on the ladder, most teams are below us. ;)

We beat GWS when they were in the top 4, Port when they were just coming off a Showdown victory, Hawks down in Launceston where it's a fortress, North when they were hot property, Bulldogs when the entire AFL thought they were the next surprise packet and in a rich vein of form.

Speaking of which, didn't you recently play the Bulldogs?

Hawks kicked 2.11 from set shots
North were hot property?

But seriously Lions are awesome..what a year. I hope they win the flag.

Surely you're takin the pi55 that Pies make it................... even their own players while injured are playing 3rd divy basketball and tryin to hide it.

Or are you hangin on to your redemption theory in desperation?

North were in hot form when we played them. Took everything we had to beat them and the umpires (dodgy ruck free to Brown) ;)
