I don't want to finish 1st. 2nd will do nicely. Who was the last team to finish as Minor Premiers, to win the flag?
Same period of time (2006 - 2018) 2nd place has won 5 times - so yeh, not much difference between 1 or 2.
It is quite convenient that they seem to forget all the ones that weren't paid to us. Typical Collingwood supporters. Always living in the pastI see the Herald Sun online has full story on Pies still whinging about the non free kick for blocking leading to Sheed’s mark in the grand final.
Can’t be bothered going behind the paywall.
The numbers are about what you'd expect really. Top 2 best chance, top 4 still a chance, outside the top 4 almost no chance.Same period of time (2006 - 2018) 2nd place has won 5 times - so yeh, not much difference between 1 or 2.
Over that time, only 4 premiers have come from outside of top 2. And only one of them outside of top 4.
MoronI reckon Jetta and Hurn should be there.
Martin wouldn't be in the top 10.
Maynard is a snivelling fu******.
In other news, AFL defender who f*cked up in defense and concedes goal whinges that he should have been paid a free kick.
We should respond similarly...

West Coast forward Ashley Sampi has detailed the heartbreak of the grand final loss to Sydney fourteen years ago and his controversial late contest with Tadhg Kennelly, which resulted in Leo Barry's match-winning mark.
"100 percent it should have been a free kick," Sampi said this week of the moment the Swans defender held him out of a marking contest moments before Barry marked with just two seconds remaining.
"I have found it very hard to watch (replays of) the grand final," he said. "I watched the doco with Woosha (John Worsfold) and Paul Roos, and it made my blood boil."
