yep was pretty disappointed we let your shitful club back in it

hopefully a wake up call , but we do switch off against the ordinary sides at times, eg north, stkilda, essendon
Hopefully, because i would rather watch a close GF than a team of chokers, and it was damn close to a massive choke to me.

2020 was at the Gabba

but given the frequency, how come the players need the coach to remind them of the ground size? surely they know

but off I shall * to watch my side in the grand final, you enjoy planning for trade week
Sick burn. :fire:
:tearsofjoy:

One thing is for sure, Pies would've smashed Lions at the G in a prelim and if last night was at the G in a GF you'd back the Pies to find an extra goal. That close QF loss was a huge blow to snatching a premiership.
yeah, but if they lost all of those close games in the regular season they wouldn't have even made the 8 so they got the result that was probably due.

I was on board with the Swannies, but if they are going to turn into arrogant flogs hope the Cats smash them now. :tearsofjoy:
Yep, let's do it Cats.

They're far more deserving. Reckon they should have a handful of premierships since 2007 given they way they have performed for the past 15 seasons.

It's been an amazing dynasty.

Yeah there have been a few Swan/ettes have swayed me in favour of Geelong, just hope it's a good close game to watch, but I get the feeling the Swans were nearly done at the end, Geelong had an easy one.

To save angst next year we'll award the 4 points to the opposition if we win by under 10 points. All other clubs will be exempt from this of course

The last 2 close losses Collingwood had was a nice little reminder that when the game is that close, it's luck. For some reason throughout the season, Pies fans actually believed this nonsense idea that after 2 hours of football it was their game plan to kick after the siren goals to beat Essendon and scraping over the line to beat North and a whole host of other average teams. You can't then lose 2 games in the finals by close margins and say it was unlucky if all of the other wins weren't lucky too.

Every close game involves luck. It was probably lucky we were so close to Geelong and then Sydney to start with. They have a crack and dont give up. That means youll be close a the end of games. Luckily

Massive advantage? We've had to play you dickheads up there every year since 2013. * off with your bullshit

Yet haven’t been to Geelong since 1999.

Also when you were going to Sydney there were years you would get them on a neutral ground not the SCG.

Even got finals out there.

Yep. I retract my previous statement about us playing in Sydney every year. Clearly thats an advantage to us also

What about teams that cop Sydney at the SCG and Geelong at Geelong.

Plus double ups to Perth Adelaide and Queensland every year.

Oh plus a Tassie trip.

Collingwood have never had that draw.

No *n team has. I stated that it’s ridiculous that Sydney have travelled to Melbourne to play us once the past 11 years and you pull out the Collingwood Melts For Dummies book and get yourself all wound up. We finished 17th last year and copped the reigning premiers twice this year. Lucky we rolled them both times. Now you give me 5 more compelling reasons the AFL suck our dicks with the draw?
