I agree with this. If the Giants win the flag I will be surprised. If any of the other top 4 candidates (Pies, Cats, Eagles and even Tigers if they get some players back) were to win, I wouldn't be.That was my issue with the Giants and still is. Being talked up after beating the bottom 3 sides. Smashed by WCE, beaten by Freo and away to Hawthorn and Adelaide who haven't even been in great form.
The jury is still out. Only a flag will silence the critics.
I, at least, have a perception that they are not up to it until they change my mind.
