Agreed, has the right feel for a day game. Weather is ideal in Brisbane today for September football.This should've been a Saturday afternoon game.
Favourable draw (due to last season's low finish) combined with a dream injury run.
Yeh yeh. Missed the point of my post. Some people say lucked out as in they had good luck.Favourable draw (due to last season's low finish) combined with a dream injury run.
4-5 this year against the other top 8 sides, with a percentage of 85.63 (average of 86.38 for and 100.88 against), including finals so far. I think it's fair to say that their style is able to be countered (and scored against relatively heavily, too) by the best sides.
I feel like if the Giants bring the same intensity and hardness at the ball as they did last week, they'll comfortably out-muscle the Lions here and win the game.
I would think most people would say "out of luck" if they had bad luck or ran out of luck, but everyone's usage of language is different.Yeh yeh. Missed the point of my post. Some people say lucked out as in they had good luck.

Call me a crazy optimist, but the bulk of the GWS players are reaching a level of maturity that sooner or later the ground won’t matter. Similar cycle with West Coast.It's the other way around though.. GWS are trash at the MCG. Can't see them winning 2 games in a row there, let alone 1.
Possible they could change their fortunes at the G. I hope you don't because you will be playing us. But now is definitely the time for you, because your star players are at their peak. In saying that, I do think GWS will get it done tonight. More ahead in the development than Brisbane.Call me a crazy optimist, but the bulk of the GWS players are reaching a level of maturity that sooner or later the ground won’t matter.

For the Giants it’s more about having a proper go than where they’re playing. Hopefully they have a real crack tonight, otherwise we’ll be wondering about the MCG hoodoo for another year.
Nah.. our lid is still on.Coolingwood supporters are sounding like Richmond fans from this time last year
If, Big if, we are good enough to won tonight we also may have Cogs back as well. He will be fired up.Nah.. our lid is still on.
I'd rather play Brisbane than GWS to be honest. GWS have more dangerous players, that can win the game on their own. Brisbane.. only Neale or Cameron is capable of this.... lock down these guys, they lose. GWS has too many to reel off. Can't tag them all.
I'm not so sure about that... they have been under performing in finals for years. I feel like it's their time to make a stand... and versus a young team that hasn't played finals for a long time.. seems Brisbane is ripe for the picking here.If you looked at GWS last week you would think they would win. But they had redemption written all over their performance against dogs after R22 smacking and their last final against them. They really wanted it, but overall they just let you down and won’t have the same edge this week. Still Brisbane inexperience will make for an even contest. Brisbane at home.
