And West Coast couldn't even beat Essendon at home, anyway Eagle supporters should be thanking Collingwood otherwise they would have never got near a flag and even at that could barely get over the line against a very average Collingwood side even then required a clear free kick not getting paid
When are you talking about now?

Richmond were running on fumes at the end of 2018, flattering to deceive at home, limping over the line against average opposition by a couple of goals. You're genuinely rewriting history....or trying to....badly.

I'll take that as cynical, BF Tiges are preoccupied with injuries arent they!
McGovern pissing blood days before becoming a premiership hero, Dusty has a sore knee and Richmond are rooted.

They had a charmed injury run for two years straight, it’s quite funny that they’d use it as any excuse.

Dogs in 2016 were decimated with injuries before they got a few back at the right time of the year. Collingwood the same and proved to be a better team than richmond overall last year. Then West Coast won many matches without their best players throughout the season last year, but when Dusty has a sore knee fmd it’s season over!

Yet this year Richmond have a far heavier injury toll than West Coast did last year are looking to finish top 4, take McGovern and Kennedy out of West Coast side for most of the year and they struggle to make finals

We played multiple games last season with McGovern our main forward. We won games without a forward line or our best ruckman. Still made finals and even won the flag without a few of them.

As I said just be happy Collingwood fluked a win, gastro and Dusty having a sore knee is what won West Coast the flag nothing else
Round 2 this year proved it wasn't a fluke. A full strength Collingwood matches up well against a full strength Richmond and the Pies flogged the Tigers in the Prelim. It had nothing to do with Gastro or any ridiculous excuse you can come up with

Collingwood has injuries: Valid excuse
Richmond has injuries: You have no depth

Having 2 players out is not an excuse, having 13 out is.
Round 2 we were missing the 5 x reigning AA full back - first game without him - and had the reigning Coleman medallist play out the last 3 quarters with literally 1 functioning arm and 1 functioning leg. Your mob would have beaten us that night. 2 of our 3 most important players were out. Our structure was destroyed and it took us weeks adjust.
Collingwood match up on us no better than anyone else. When they play better than us they win, when we play better than them we lose.

Yet Richmond played a full strength Collingwood the other week and flogged them despite missing Alex Rance and Trent Cotchin going down in the first quarter

Richmond fans going the early crow; if they don’t make the grand final at least, there’s hardly any difference between the Tigers and WC over three years.

No early crow, just facts.

In each season Richmond has had more H&A wins and finished with a better percentage.

In each season we have made a preliminary final, whereas West Coast have only made one.

Richmond’s final record - regardless of the result next week - will at least match West Coast’s across the three seasons.
