Logic has never been a strong suit of the AFLAs a pure spectacle of round 1, I still don’t understand the logic of us v Geelong and Port v North. Surely you’d have it the other way around? It’s a no brainer. Port v Geelong would be a huge game and build up. Could we get one back on North after the last flogging?
I smell an upset. The team should be primed to knock them off in combination with the losing grand finalist typically getting off to a slow start.This is your ideal start. This will go one of two ways:
- we keep it close and use that to drive belief moving forward.
- we get blown out and the boys get a great little reality of the standards we are working toward.
Anyone mentally fragile enough to lose morale losing to grand finalist in rd 1 coming off a spoon has bigger issues.
I would much rather get a side like this in rd 1 (they likely won't be at their best) than running into them after a spell of promising games (like when we faced Richmond last round last year) that kills genuine momentum.
2021 lets go.
Well yes it is possible I suppose. I was perhaps a little glass half empty. The win option would also be fantastic. I just think we can't really lose here.I smell an upset.

And vice versa - good teams build as the year goes onOur best chance of defeating Geelong is round 1 because typically bad teams play their best football at the start of the year then get progressively worse
