And in both games the winning team kicked 17 behindsA strange thing happened to the Swans in R4-R5 2021.
In R4 Sydney 11.17 (83) defeated Essendon 12.8 (80).
In R5 GWS 9.17 (71) defeated Sydney 10.9 (69).
They won in R4 as the side kicking fewer goals and then a week later they lost as the team kicking more goals.
The fact that something may happen is not a coincidence, and it certainly isn't an "amazing" coincidence.I think you are the one doing that. I've clearly pointed out existing coincidences. This is not a banter page bro.
Obviously you have the Bulldogs blinkers on. If you can't see the existing and potential coincidences, then cool. That's all I pointed out.The fact that something may happen is not a coincidence, and it certainly isn't an "amazing" coincidence.
The fact the Bulldogs are currently 5-0 and play Essendon in round 21 is a mute point. This thread is not about potential amazing coincidences, which is what your posts represents.
Also, 2021 is a 23 round season, so for this to turn out to be an amazing coincidence, the Bulldogs would actually have to play Essendon in round 22. I.e. They will have played 19 games before playing Essendon this year, meaning if they were to win every game between now and then, they would be 19-0 before facing Essendon. Essendon were 20-0 in 2000 before they lost to the Bulldogs.
Perhaps you should think about things more before posting.
It can't be a coincidence because the Bulldogs and Bombers don't play each other in the penultimate round, so the consistently with Essendon losing their 21st match of the season against the Bulldogs in 2000 (the penultimate round) isn't present.Obviously you have the Bulldogs blinkers on.

OMG OMG OMG what about this coincidence?Mind blown by the freakish nature of the past page
I went hunting for any other Anzac Day oddities, particularly amongst the rest of the clubs. Nothing I'd consider truly amazing, but anyway:Essendon winning on ANZAC Day every 4 years is still going strong
Good spot!I went hunting for any other Anzac Day oddities, particularly amongst the rest of the clubs. Nothing I'd consider truly amazing, but anyway:
- The first VFL football played on April 25th was in 1914. There wouldn't be another game played on this date until 1960.
- 25/04/1914 saw the first two matches played that day end in a draw. There's only been one draw since.
- Port are now 3-0.
- Curiously, Freo have the second best winning record (73%) of the established teams (GWS 1-0,) and from a decent enough sample size of 11 games too.
- Contrasted with West Coast who have only played on this date twice. Both times against Hawthorn
- St Kilda have now lost their past 9 games to fall on this date. Not won since 1985.
- This was Adelaide's first game on the date since 1999. Melbourne now inherit the longest run without (since 2003, which should stand for a long time if they keep up the eve clash with Richmond.)
