Thats a pretty good post and a very fair and accurate summation of the situation
I was happy with Geelongs year - its an if - but kick straight in the 2nd qtr against Tigers - then could have been 6 goals up at half time - and may have hung on - if so would be premiers . I tipped Richmond on the Geel board in the GF by close to 100 pts - GWS were inferior and banged up
Cats had a chance of a flag in 13 ( narrow loss in the PF ) - since then 14-18 havent had the cattle to win a flag - and never been a serious chance - but did well to make the finals - alot of teams just miss out - year in year out
Ive got no problem with season 2019 - because the best team ( even without Rance ) - most talented team won the GF - and Richmond have clearly been the No 1 team for the last 3 years
And your last sentence was spot on re the 19PF " Or was it just a game of footy and the best team won "
Alot of big footy posters however want to bag the absolute shiit out of everything .
We also didn't play on our home ground the last eight weeks in a row of the H & A season like Richmond did.
