A side that consistently plays in big games and finals vs a side with no history of success and a strong victim complex.

Predictable outcome.
So how come the dogs didn't beat Freo despite having more finals experience? LoL

Collingwood were sharp and comfortable out there.
Played fast and hard and would have thumped us if they kicked straight.
Freo needs a forward line with marking and goal kicking skills.. we will get there 👍💜☺️

This match is the literal definition of a dead rubber anyway. Sydney would've destroyed either one of these sides

Dead rubber is a term used in sporting parlance to describe a match in a series where the series result has already been decided by earlier matches. The dead rubber match therefore has no effect on the winner and loser of the series, other than the total number of matches won and lost.

You're not very bright.

He exaggerated contact, like usual. When a player exaggerates contact, it creates doubt in the umpires mind. The thing with Ginnivan is he was awarded about 20 goals worth of free kicks where he ducked. No-one likes players that do this. Weightman is the same. loved by their own club only. The one to blame outside of Ginnivan, is Craig McCrae. He hasn't pulled him aside and told him to cut it out. So he deserves everything that comes his way.
This is how we all know you talk s**t. Prove he has been awarded 20 goals worth of free kicks.

He hasn’t even kicked double digits worth of goals from free kicks, and that’s including the ones that were actually there.

If you want to put a wager on it or prove me wrong, go right ahead and do it instead of continually talking nonsense.

He wouldn't be leading our goal kicking, it would be shared but it's all about spread of goal kickers these days.

I'm not worried about him. His goal scoring ability has dried up for some reason in the past 6 weeks.

Pickett does this just as much as ginnivan. Glass houses and all that

Collingwood a mature team with finals experience. Seven players 30 and over.

Freo a young developing team that won its way to a MCG final after narrowly beating the WB at home.

Result was a given.

What's the circumference of the SCG and Gosh's.. move the boundary line in at Gosh's.. set up some drills and that.. get an extra player or 2 or whatever to play out wide.. leaves more gaps in the guts for us to exploit. When we've got the pill.. they don't defend out wide.. we move the pill along the boundary.. they defend out wide.. we move the pill through the guts.

I reckon we're a good chance.

It won't matter when the ball is in our forward half most of the game, Sydney will think they have our measure, our best is yet to come.
