I wonder if one of these will be initiated on the back of another non vic club failing so badly on the big stage

Wasn't a product of that ramping up junior development in Victoria?

They always had the TAC Cup, but it received more funding and less focus on the VFL State League being a strong competition.


We could set something up like that here, but too much stock is taken in Norwood/North/WWT/Westies/Sturt winning flags and having the second best Footy Competition.

Who won it?
Curnow

Only one who took it seriously. Consistently kicking 50 plus.

Fog had a laugh. Biggest kick 40m.

Draper jagged a 60m kick with his first. Mucked around after.



Kind of odd you can bet on it really. They had a v8 supercar driver in it.

That’s true, but it’s the most dominant a Crows team has been.

I can’t see us putting together a better side in the future, and it wasn’t good enough at the time.

No it's not. We were dominant through 2005 and 2006 also.
We were called the crowbots as we were so bloody hard to beat.
We'll get back up there again.

Anyone here want to have a crack at why?
I wonder if complications with streaming contributes?

More people watching in large groups/pubs etc.


C7 did open it up to all streaming after game start. But too late.



Drop off due to result though. Game was over 15 minutes in.

They must have changed something in the first qtr, as my old man ended up watching it via a chromecast which wasn’t on the list of allowed devices to stream 7plus.

Really makes you wonder why we get such stick for 2017. We were winning half way through the second quarter and missed a couple easy chances.
Vic hates us for our back to back years. It's no more complicated than that. Problem is we haven't been good enough to earn begrudging respect like West Coast and Sydney. There's a reason the other interstaters aren't considered particularly threatening and aren't hated either.

Yeah they did.

We were the same, Chromecast stopped around 130. Border Patrol on.

Luckily we have Telstra TV.

Because people thought we were the clear best side and didn’t understand how good Richmond were and proved to be.

Richmond’s form going into and in the finals series was as good as ours and the pricks got to play it at home with umps giving them a helping hand.
