That you’ve been in here all day wringing your hands over.

You do know that most Geelong fans on this forum watched us launch our most successful period of footy by beating your team by 28 goals right?

Thanks for the smashing helped us finish lower on the ladder to pick up Martin and Cotchin. Pretty good backfire if you ask me

Just stopping by to say Cameron and Hawkins will make the team/squad before Lynch. :grinv1:

Castanga has more flags than them combined. Hopefully their AAs gives them some comfort at least.

Back on topic, Collingwood are one choke against Geelong off being outright top, yet I can't think of a single player that would make the 22. Even the 40 you'd need to stretch it a bit. Would be a very long time since that's happened.

How did it backfire?
We won 3 flags. What should we have done, manipulated results so that we could avoid winning those premierships on the off chance we drafted some players who would help us win 3 only 10 years later? How did that backfire, exactly? By allowing us to draft all Australian centre half back Harry Taylor who would be a fixture in two more premiership teams?

Yeah you don't see it like Falcon does mate. Instead of beating Richmond by 150 points we should have thrown the game and tanked instead of winning the flag by a record margin, then we could have drafted Dusty and instead of winning 3 flags when we did, we could have had Dusty himself in Geelong colours. It makes perfect sense and frankly I'm now annoyed that Bomber didn't take us down that path instead!

Backfired because we used those players to win 17, 19,20 beating you every step of the way. Cost you the 19/20 flags. Love that 28 goal smashing you gave us. Holds a special place in my heart like the Dees drafting the two guys before Dusty.

I don’t think you know how drafting works but ok.

As opposed to costing ourselves the 07-09-11 flags by trying to deliberately lose in order to win the same amount of flags a decade later.

Yeah.

I don’t think you understand how numbers work if you think we should have sacrificed winning 3 flags in order to….. win 3 flags.

Yeah probably one of the best I’ve seen. Trac on the bench is spot on. Only iffy ones are Mcluggage and Saade.
