Kevin Bartlett's goal touched? lol have you even seen footage of the game was no one near the ballYou 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.
REALLY ??Yeah, I have to say Geelong v Richmond is about as boring a game for a grand final as I could think of. Hopefully it's at least close.
I've genuinely been on the Geelong bandwagon as soon as Hawthorn's season went off the boil (round 4-ish ? )You get one more chance for the reverse mozz next week!
They replayed the 1973 GF on ABC radio this afternoon with interviews from some of the players back then."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."

How would that go over today?
A win for either team isn't a sure thing and they've established quite the rivalry over the last few years. It's kind of exciting in the same way as the Sydney/WCE contests were in the mid 2000's, Sydney/Hawthorn clashes between 2012/2015, Collingwood-Geelong contests etc etc. Richmond have had the wood over Geelong in recent years, but as we have seen this season.... winning streaks do get broken (Hawthorn broke theirs against Richmond, Brisbane broke theirs against Richmond etc).

Maybe he has some perspective, god forbid. They’ll also be a good team for a while. If he were coaching my club I’d be pretty happy.
He's paid to get results not have perspective. The guy was grinning and giggling with reporters after the most shattering loss of his coaching career. Players played with a similar level of investment tonight.Maybe he has some perspective, god forbid. They’ll also be a good team for a while. If he were coaching my club I’d be pretty happy.
Yeah. I think what he is doing is playing the long game and trying to set the mental state of his players right; making sure they keep their chins up so to speak and don't get scarred.
Blicsavs and Stanley are a solid ruck duo. After so many years in the same team how has it taken so long to pair these 2 up?Tell you who's been really important for us in the last part of the season: Rhys Stanley. Another good game in the ruck and around the ground.PLAYERCARDSTART1Rhys Stanley

If you'd told me that friggin Stanley was going to be a key peg of a flag push, I'd have laughed in your face.
