You'd reckon Geelong and Melbourne would be natural rivals being the oldest clubs and all. Maybe they could have a blockbuster each year with the rotating venue at their respective grammar schools :thumbsu:
The toffee cup anyone?
Time for a Geelong and Richmond marquee game. You big clubs should help us middle membership sized teams 👍

I reckon give Hawks the flick for Easter Monday. Been s**t for years now whilst Richmond have been great all that time.

I love the Easter Monday game, and the rivalry with the hawks and they did beat us last year I know, however I agree.
Time to ditch the hawks and play Richmond on this day. Hawk fans are bandwagoners, crowd needs to be bigger.
Hawks can just come play in Geelong instead.

Tips? Richmond by 20 imo.

Looks like the GF replay experiment failed. I didn’t mind it tbh. AFL knows Cats v Swans won’t get as many people as Tigers v Blues.

I think I have a gif for this :D
i have a fair point. Easter Monday should be us and the big screen at the G should play that gif on loop all game long to match the fact in 2017 your fanbase intimidated ours 👀

Honeetly, there is nothing better than watching the two best fanbases in the AFL in the first match of the year. What’s the alternative replace Tiges or Blues with little 2 flags in 60 years Collingwood?

At that point you may as well just go all in and chuck the Saints in there because they have one flag in the same timeframe.

Surely - one of the supporters of the famous Navy Blues - could put up or attach to this thread - the youtube /video or whatever of the 1972 GF

Im only a neutral - but it is beautiful viewing - and i never get sick of watching it - that is watching Richmond fall to bits

Tigers/Blues v Flagmantle would probably get a bigger crowd 🤣

Richmond will be feeling uneasy about delaying their rebuild after this one.

It’s a rebuild on the run, we aren’t topping up with oldies.

Regardless you gotta go for 4 whilst you still have your legacy players. I might be in the minority but Hawks topping up wasn’t a failure, it’s the correct decision to take a punt imo. Always time to rebuild and win another flag. 4 or 5 flag dynasties happen a handful of times a century.
