Home prelim, with the chance of a non-MCG grand final.
MASSIVE CHOKE.

I think it's obvious the answer is a resounding yes - it was the biggest choke in modern football.

I look forward to friendly discussion about this.

Sorry but the honor of biggest choke in modern football is a team that was leading by 22 points in the grand final, only for them to get rolled by 30

Congratulations Geelong :)

You'll never see a better 53 point turn around!!!!
It might sound funny but I knew Richmond would win immediately after the half time siren went off. The camera panned some of the players, Nankervis and a couple of other Richmond players were smiling. Then I looked at small groups of Geelong players and they looked rattled

Seems much like their supporters, the Cats only stick around for half a game, a carbon copy of the 2019 prelim.

Port Adelaide are no stranger to choking in finals. Minor premiers in 02 and 03, choked in prelims both years before they finally got it right in 04. Then they were witches hats in 07 Grand Final. Can't forget the early 2000s :$
