The 1967 GF rematch.

Much more likeable blokes back then like Polly Farmer and Royce Hart, absolute gentlemen of the game unlike modern day flogs like Dangerfield and Cotchin.
"As long as we win tomorrow, I’ll be happy. After that we have a fairly easy draw and I reckon we can be on top after five matches."

- Royce Hart on the eve of his first game

How would that go over today?

We will see next week. Love it how Tigers beating Port proves legitimacy yet Geelong comfortably handling a side the great Tigers lost to doesn't mean anything.
All good. Will be interesting to see if the Tigers allow the Cats to bring the ball up through defence (their 2nd, 3rd and 4th kicks) unopposed as pretty much Collingwood and Brisbane did.

Will Charlie Cameron ever catch any heat? Or does he get to escape it because he is exciting to watch?

Went missing after the first quarter, and saw him multiple times decide to not chase when he could of put on pressure and jogged around. Finished the game with 5 disposals.

There must a thousand Hawthorn flogs on Big Footy who hate Geelong and you're trying to land a blow on the one who doesn't give a sh*t.

The only anger I'm feeling right now (if you can call it that) is why I didn't bet on the Cats to win the flag earlier in the year when I knew they were the team to beat.
Get well soon.

Geelong’s defence is slow and our much quicker forwards should have a field day. Expecting Hipwood, Cameron, Coleman, McCarthy, Bailey and Rayner to tear them to shreds. Add in scoreboard contributions from Zorko, McCluggage, Robinson, Berry, Neale, Lyons or McInerney and we will blow them out of the water. We have too many offensive weapons for them. Finally, we won’t be tossing up lollipops as we enter our offensive 50 like Collingwood did. Just as we did against Richmond, expect Geelong to have very few intercept marks in defence. Lions by lots.

How'd that work out?

The funny thing with Geelong supporters sooking over Fred Swift's mark on the goal line that it was taken seconds before the final siren and Richmond were 2 goals up, even if it was a goal Richmond would have won anyway
You are in dream land, that wasn’t the only bad decision. What about the clear mark to
John Scarlett 15 metres out when umpire Sheales was 60 metres behind the play, or the
fact that Bartletts final quarter goal was clearly touched. Or any of the other half
dozen things that went against Geelong and shouldn’t have. Polly Farmer wasn’t the only
Geelong person to bring up the bad decisions, the coach Peter Pianto, who would usually
not say anything about umpires, was so upset the next day on World Of Sport that he
said that the best team had lost, and they had.

What about naming your greatest team ever and naming yourself at centre half forward

The honesty is refreshing. Players today have to be such robots
Hart copped a lot of flak for publishing an autobiography at barely 22yo, which contained a "greatest ever" team with himself at CHF. This has since morphed into "the team I'd like to play with". Not sure what the truth is, but he had the ability to back up his opinions.

There have been recent attempts in the media to link modern Richmond to the 1970's arrogance, but I don't see it.
