The previous three grand finals were won by three different clubs and this year is anyone’s game really. (Well not anyone but you get my point.) if anything I would say equalisation is extremely strong as with the exception of Carlton no team are locked cellar dwellers and have shown huge improvement.
Geelong got reasonably lucky with father/sons, attracting Danger and getting Ablett back, plus Wells is a genius. I am not sure if equalisation is at fault.
Geelong haven't won a flag in almost a decade. Have you been an AFL fan longer than 3 months? They scraped into the finals last year and were defeated out of the gate. Why on Earth are they being compared to the Golden State Warriors (who have won 3 out of the last 4 titles)? It's round 8 FFS and the OP has already got Geelong down for a 3peat. BF is getting more idiotic by the season.
Anyways, If Geelong manage to lure Cameron over within the rules and salary cap then good on them. We will take Kelly in a 3 way deal
Of course it has. At the end of the day no matter how many draft, cap etc rules you put in teams will always find a way to get around them. The top teams will always attract the better players while the bottom teams will struggle. Basically the lower teams, the only chance they have is to build a team from the bottom and hope it pays off like the Bulldogs. The other advantage is that clubs like Geelong, Collingwood etc can basically spend what ever they want on training facilities, getting players good advertising agreements. There are a host other areas they have the advantage in as well.
The Warriors and the Cats share one thing in common, and that's that they hold the record for the most dominant home and away/regular season in league history, coupled with the fact they failed to go on and win the championship/premiership in that season.
