I don't think the Tiger fans are reading this thread at the moment.

I think they're on YouTube, listening to the theme to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', aka Frolic by Luciano Michelini.

Greatest finals choke will always be Essendon 1999

Port 2001 against a Hawthorn side who only just scraped into the 8 would be up there too

Yeah, um 2008?
We were destroyed by injuries, played Hodge in the ruck at one stage. Very young team who won a flag ahead of its time. (A Dogs fan will understand that)


Richmond are a mature team who had a charmed injury run both years, lost most interstate games, and gurgled one of the biggest prelim chokes in history.

I agree it's a choke, but Geelong's was bigger

They only lost one game all season up until the game that mattered

Gotta remember too, Pies copped heaps of injuries last two games between them and the Tiges and the Tiges ran all over them late on, they finally get no in game injuries and are allowed to play at full potential for four quarters

I got my Norf chokes confused. I was thinking of the Adelaide GF but that was 98 so doesn't count
They were horrible in front of goal that day

Bit like Geelong 08 in that regard

They only got to a prelim in 97 though, St Kilda rolled them
