No issue with the Tigers winning but is Jason Castagna the worst 3x premiership player in history?

Yeah, not entirely happy with Dangerflog over in Sleepy Hollow, but it appears to be equal blame, and some reserved for the coach.

Ah, Ablett didn't deserve another flag, and Danger doesn't deserve one at all. I feel good this morning.
Agree.

I do love how the media wanted a fairytale finish for Ablett.

Well what about the AFC? Didn’t they deserve a fairytale finish after what happened to their coaches - both Dean Bailey and Phil Walsh?

Unfortunately that isn’t how life works.

Scary Sliding Doors thought.

The way that the Cats rolled over in the 2nd half.

Alberton would have been going off tonight, if Port made it. I think they would have beaten the Cats.

Thankfully we will never know..... lol.
Here is another one

IF losing to richmond in a grand final causes a club to implode and bleed players and drop down the ladder

THEN

geelong had better watch out

Not sure why the Ablett hate. The man is a humble legend. Not to mention what he is going through with his son.

I lost my 4 year old son to leukemia last year. Would not wish that on anybody.

Nothing but the utmost respect for the bloke being able to continue on and wish him all the best.

No problem with his son, i wish him all the best, horrible thing to go through.

But, a mercenary of the highest order. Took the money to go to GC, his divisive leadership ruined that club, then threw a tanty to go home and all the media said sure.

He’s been an amazing player but he ran out of good bloke tickets long ago.

We really need a meme competition for this.


Deaneus! I know your reputation, you helped me when an award once lol. AFLX ? Remember?

He left the AFC when we were at our weakest and most vulnerable and our compensation was an absolute travesty of fairness.

Karma is a b*tch Patrick. Take this photo back to Moggs Creek and frame it.

If I was to be critical of one thing, he deserved the respect in his final game but Geelong should not have stolen the tigers celebration. At that point its for the fans not an ablett Geelong circle jerk. Grand finals aren't for that.

To be fair we got a fair rev up before the prelim I think? A whole video package on "Resilience". Spine tingling package it was but I can't really watch it anymore because of the week (and of course years) after.

Then after we won the prelim we went into the GF as favourites against a Vic club that everyone felt sorry for and the goodwill stopped.

Tigers just crush you. They are so clean with their hands and smart with their disposal ... But ultimately they just run harder for longer.

Dusty is the best footballer I have seen. He epitomises what we should all love about AFL. HE GETS IT DONE. Hard, tough, skilled, powerful.

Not since Dane Swan have I enjoyed watching a player on another team that just imposes himself.

The cats have issues but jeez they have some talent. I wonder if Scott is the wrong type of coach for them? Maybe they needed someone like Ken ... Someone that lifts the team up, a motivator?

I know it is petty but I was happy that Dangerfield stayed true to form. He is not what people make him out to be. He needs more reasons to be humble.

Happy with the result. 2020 was made for the experienced teams ... Looking forward to 2021 already

Tigers were really unlucky in 2018 too, the American Pie, played the greatest game ever in his life and was seeing the ball like a beach ball at the G that night.

The Pies chanting USA was something to be remembered.

As coach you have to be a special kind of arrogant if you think you can take your best on baller out of the midfield to play forward and think you will still beat a Cotchin and Martin lead midfield especially when Martin was single handedly ripping Geelong a new a hole
