So it means they’ll do it again? Why?
Didn't you guys lose to the Doggies and Geelong smashed both you and the Doggies.
Collingwood lost to both the Doggies and Geelong and beat you by 7.
so Geelong are clearly the best team in the comp by a couple of goals. The bext best are Swans.

And now some Collingwood supporters are saying that Bucks left McRae a great list...
And they're probably the same ones that said Mick left Bucks a crap list.
Bucks did leave McCrae a great list. McCrae has even said as much himself

It really doesn’t work like that. Geelong would have hoped that formula worked in the 08 GF.

It was really a tale of 2 halves. Melbourne didn't take there chances when they dominated early. In the end Collingwood were better after half time and the numbers show that.

It was just under 50 tackles to about 15 after half time. Collingwood finished with 100+ less disposals but 16 more kicks. I think when you have over 200 handballs your playing under a lot of pressure and ain't doing a lot of damage withe that possession more times than not.

As for forward 50 free kicks. When you lay 18 F50 tackles to 8 you are probably more likely than the opposition to get a free kick for holding the ball.

Geelong didn’t smash us. Go watch the game. They smashed us in the last quarter only. Before that we were the dominant team up by 7 goals in the 3rd quarter.

Mick delivered Collingwood a premiership

Nathan got Mick demoted and had a rollercoaster coaching career with 0 premierships to show for it.
Premierships don’t define a players worth.

You need to get your facts straight. Collingwood dominated against Geelong for majority of the game until they had a very similar last quarter to the one that lost them the game against West Coast.

And so you must agree the Pies are currently the 2nd best team in the game. Winning by 1 point or 100 points….
Not second best but definitely in the top 4.
I would go Geelong, Swans, Brisbane, Collingwood, Melbourne, Dockers then Richmond, Bulldogs and Saints

Great game! Best of the year. Pies adjusted game defensively after HT & always looked liked reeling dees in, just as they did QBD after trailing by a similar margin.

Get Taylor Adams & Grundy back in that side & they can win the flag. De Goey is looming large for a big September.

Nah, when the pies win a close one or run a team down it’s the most amazing thing ever, but when it’s done to them they should have won and they were harshly done by.
No luck involved in the loss to the Cats. But a lot was learned it seems.

umpires have done wonders here.
You do realise this is an adult’s forum? Hard to give credence to, or take seriously, anyone who posts in such an unfailingly childish and immature fashion. For once try and discuss the actual game in a mature, adult manner, rather than always resorting to the predictable “Pies lucky”, or “ umpires gifted you the win”, etc, etc.

I reckon you’re probably one of those Dees members who voted your club out of existence back in the 90’s, and are now jumping back on the bandwagon once they’ve had a bit of success.

FFS grow up, and try and discuss the actual game, rather than resorting to childish nonsense.

The lid has been blown to the shizenhousen, crime rates throughout inner Melbourne will be down this week as thousands of Pies fans stagger around public bars in a mad stupor. They are tenacious, I'll give them that, but they also remind me of a small dog with severe humping behaviour, which can be quite annoying.

I would sincerely hope he isn’t old enough for that to be true. If he’s out of his teens he’s just pathetic.
