They will end up with 18 wins, the fixture is what it is. People complain about matches in Geelong and now it's who they play once? They won't play Sydney again at the SCG and Freo won down there in Geelong, i don't see the problem with a team that has won 12 in a row. It's just nitpicking.Reminder:
Played Collingwood once.
Played Melbourne once (Kardinia).
Played Fremantle once (Kardinia).
Played Brisbane once (Kardinia).
Played Sydney once.
Played North Melbourne twice.
Played West Coast twice.
Haven't you been reading the HunNice cherry pick. You had a 36 year old Gary Ablett Jnr at the time.
Ablett and Taylor is one thing, Selwood, Hawkins, Blicavs, Guthrie, Menegola, Duncan, Smith + more is another.
Anyway the point is not to get too carried away. Most Geelong fans actually understand this, but clearly you're a bit deluded.
In 2014 when they lost to North in the semi, they had five 30+ year olds in the team.I see your point but they haven't been fairly consistently bottom 8 since 2000-2006 and even then they made finals in 04 and 05. They are up there with Sydney as a model for continuous improvement and rebuilding on the run. We attempted to follow this model and got a run of bad injuries and luck and form and look at the state we are in now. It's hard to make it work which makes it impressive.
