i did say 'assuming things balance out. they clearly did not balance out. All Brisbane's momentum was destroyed every single time.

VFL got the result they wanted

I was saying this teams a better team than 2017
Yes yes. Richmond's 2017 Grand Final was undeserved. Pity West Coasts stirring win last year ruined your narrative.
Anyway, I can't stay angry at the Eagles. Any club that has GF victory over Collingwood has done a great thing for humanity in my book.

I think you're implying we lost tonight because we were inexperienced in finals? It's pretty obvious we were up to the finals theatre through out intensity and ability to match Richmond around the ground.

Goal kicking has been a problem all year (in non-finals btw). I'm getting the sense it's because we like to play down the wing, and thus create tougher shots for ourselves. idk tho
Geez man you are incapable of letting the inexperience thing go aren't you?

Here's something for you, unlike melbournes reaction to last year's finals, most of us think you'll be even better next year for the experience.

Were any of us wrong at the time? Richmond's first quarter was sh*thouse and the Lions should have been up by another 3 or 4 goals at quarter time.
Just means you dont watch enough footy to have a clue about the end result and are too stupid not to open your mouth prematurely. Fair?

I agree. Experience makes you better. Doesnt mean you cant be better than the other team if you are less experienced. Hopefully you can understand now

Did you dust off your 1980s Tigers beanie after 2017 and claim you’ve stuck fat through the 30 odd years of mediocrity?
Should make a doco about Tiger supporters spitting at their players when things aren’t rosey.
Reckon I’d watch that.
Means they actually turned up tho

We do understand all too well....you are just a broken record.
Hope to see you in the grand final where i guarantee you that experience will count for something

Thank you, at last there is some sense on Big Footy. Mate, i have been saying this for years. All the Bulldog fans were yapping after their so called hot form before the finals. Saying they have an invincible midfield, we should all be afraid.
I was at rd22....imo i saw the best game of the year and two sides who were fast, tough, skilled and disciplined. Imo the 2 best sides in the comp as we speak

First half of this thread is a window into the biased mind of the umpire troll. Watching the game from a Tigers perspective I was seeing so many unpaid free kicks our way.

You're right he had no need to get involved but it happens 50 times a game in every game, and has always and will always be a part of the game.

Weird to equate something like that with one of the biggest dives we've seen on the footy field.
And yet you're guilty of exaggeration too....life is funny ain't it?

Why do you guaruntee that? It seems over history that experience has probably counted against people in GF's.
Arent you tired of spouting the same crap for weeks? You're about to go on ignore before you make me catatonic. Get some new material ffs

It's true tho. Off the top of my head at least 7 GF's won by the lesser experienced GF side since 2000. Enough to show no trend. Pls explain if you're being serious and not trolling

Premeditated? Are you actually sure what that means? Are you saying he knew that Hipwood would come in and bump him and then knew he would exaggerate it and hope for a free? Wow.
I’d give him the free just for being able to predict all these things.....
Grimes is the quizatz haderach and his prescience, infallible.

Lions will go down in straight sets. They overachieved this year with a piss easy draw. Will be exposed as an average side next year with a more difficult draw.
Jeez its almost like you lost to us in what you thought was a contentious umpiring decision only minutes after your own club got a questionable free from the umps.

You're tiring. Go away. Also your team isnt as good as my team. That's why we just beat you home and away. And your mum stinks.

Tha f*ck?

I watched the game. Richmond were lucky the first quarter ended when it did because the Lions were all over them, with their inaccuracy costing them a valuable lead. Richmond then reset tactics, wrested control of the match and then kicked it into high gear with the Lions unable to match it.

If you think Richmond were doing anything other than holding on for grim death in the first then you've got rocks in your head.

A team never holds on to grim death in the first quarter of a game. That is what may happen in the last quarter. Why? You have 3 quarters to rectify the problems. I think you have exaggerated grossly.
Also, nobody knows what might have happened if you just kicked one of the goals instead of a point. Instead of a kick out the ball goes back to the centre. Who knows how the game changes after that?
