Well its finally here. After a long and difficult season Richmond and Geelong will play off
Richmond are playing for their 3rd Flag in 4 years. They would start favourites and have been the best team of the last 4 years
Geelong keep surprising people - like Sydney of old - they look old and finished but manage to do enough. It might be a fair comment to make that in this most compromised season they have possibly benefitted the most with shorter quarters and 17 games.
Having said that Geelong suffered the most by not playing games at Kardinia Park and its wonky design parameters.
The weather will play a huge part with rain and lightning expected it will suit the team that plays the ground ball better
And that would be Richmond . Richmond have designed a game plan around chaos ball ie moving the ball forward under any circumstance and manner , pushing , bunting , slapping and generally playing a maul style of game.
If the weather is as bad as expected the ball should fall to ground quite often.
Is this the last chance for Selwood, Ablett, Taylor and Dangerfield? Or will they keep on keeping on?
My tip is Richmond by 16 points
