6 won the flag - Essendon 2000, Port 2004, West Coast 2006, Geelong 2007, Collingwood 2010, Hawthorn 2013Under the current finals system, what's been the numbers of the top team winning the flag and making the GF?
Yes, and if we get Brisbane and/or Collingwood later in the finals it will be our 4th final against them too.Another fun fact, this will be our 4th final against Geelong, which is the most we've played against any team. Won in 2004, lost in 2007 and 2013.
Wow only 6 times in 20 seasons. It’s pretty much an even chance between the Top 3 going on history.6 won the flag - Essendon 2000, Port 2004, West Coast 2006, Geelong 2007, Collingwood 2010, Hawthorn 2013

For 3rd to win the flag requires some special circumstances.Wow only 6 times in 20 seasons. It’s pretty much an even chance between the Top 3 going on history.
This.It would be great if there was some sort of incentive and reward for this rather than a who cares cup. Finishing top after regular season is an achievement worth commending.
It’s up to us to give such a feat its proper recognition.Pitty it's not like the EPL would of just won our 4th AFL flag lol.
I’m partying, mate. No idea what you’re talking about...Well we’ve finished top and one the last game in September! Any other year and we would be partying right now
