I hear ya chunky, biggest whinersIs it just me or are Geelong the biggest whingeing ******* football club in the league? Hear me out here.
All I hear about is how unfair it is that they don't get to play home finals against Vic sides in Geelong, but have to go all the way to the MCG. Oh ******* spare me, you have to travel to play against a VIC side where you will only get 30,000 fans and the opposition might get 40,000 and be louder. Mind you, I grew up in Geelong and the fans are pathetic, hate travelling to Melbourne for games, only interested if their doing well, will only go to the games if it's cheap and to drink. No actual interest in footy as a sport or even watching properly. They barely even make noise, just soft clap with every target that's hit.
But what s**ts me is they whinge about the above yet ignore the below.
1. They get a home ground advantage as a Vic side - basically gifting them 9 wins a year. Us for example get a home ground advantage against an interstate team and that's it really. Whereas they get the benefits of an interstate team home game, and their away games are often against other Vic clubs at the G or Marvel where their fans still attend. How is this unfair on Geelong? They get the best of both worlds by having a home ground advantage + no away game disadvantage (except for interstate).
2. They can avoid rebuilding because again, unlike any other Vic club they get a go home factor. All of Danger, Ablett, Dahlhaus, Rohan, Stewart, Hawkins and a few others like Miers, Atkins are all from Geelong. The first 4 requested trades to 'go home' back to Geelong. Looks like Jack Steven will request a trade as well as he's from there. Someone requests a trade back home to Melbourne there's 8 clubs fighting for their signature.
They s**t me. Hope they go out in straight sets again. Chris Scott is also a fraud.
They might finish 3rd and have to travel which would shut their whinging up, perfect scenario
