Haha pressure- smessure -I don’t feel any pressure myself- it’s all just good, clean fun. Anything else is a real shifting of the goalposts from Geelong supporters who had us as a middling team this year-and that was most of us. I am betting absolutely nobody had us even close to being in this position before the year began, so I am pretty chuffed with what they have done so far. A good team that is building and plays an enjoyable brand of footy. The hoops look great. Much better to watch than say, Richmond.Many predictions were wrong, yet reality is we are 11-1 and should be finishing top 2. Got to win it from there. Preliminary for the 3rd time in 4 years doesn’t cut it. When you recruit Dangerfield, Ablett, touhy and company then a flag is good enough. Remember next year Kelly probably will go, Ablett year older, Dangerfield, Hawkins & Selwood a year older. Unfortunately whether we like it or not this is the year to get it done. Pressure is mounting. Champions take on the pressure and win!
Dangerfield( he’s only 29) and Ablett just came home- simple as that-bonus. Hawkins playing as well as he’s played for a few years- barring injuries he has a couple more years. But in the finals all those guys will be standing up, no worries. We are in with a chance at this point, as are several other teams. Long way to go-no need for big statements in June!
