Not everyone thinks you’re a troll, what you had to say was quite reasonable. It’s just a bit strange you didn’t head to the Cats board straight up. But looks like you’re a secret or not so secret admirer of the Dogs...Yes you’re talking to a Geelong supporter about what Essendon Carlton and Richmond do. Before 2007 Geelongs 1963 flag might as well have been 1863 to me. So yeah my point stands about Footscray and you can say the same thing about the “big four” and they’re premierships. Flags won in an era where you could just buy a players from other leagues. No salary cap, no interstate travel. Only 12 teams playing Players going to work five days a week, and training two days a week. Polly Farmer didn’t get to Geelong until well and truly passed his peak.
So the best Ruckman in the country wasn’t even playing in the league for the peak years of his career.. Football then compare to now is “apples and oranges”
That’s why Hawthorn (and I hate to say this is a Geelong supporter) in my mind, are the most successful AFL club.
There body of work from the premiership in the 70s 80’s 2010’s has way more relevance then 16 premierships won over 150 odd years.
Yes.. you summed me up pretty well.. If something was making me look like a troll it was down to my ignorance of the website.Not everyone thinks you’re a troll, what you had to say was quite reasonable. It’s just a bit strange you didn’t head to the Cats board straight up. But looks like you’re a secret or not so secret admirer of the Dogs...
And you’re still up at 4am...
One odd post on the Geelong board, careful, they might think you’re a troll...
Never mind you’ll soon get the hang of Bigfooty
You need to recalibrate what you consider to be a fine first post then. You may not be, but take another look at the very first line of your very first post and have a think about why I and others called you a troll.I think it was fine for a first post.. much better than your disrespectful reply. It was well constructive enough for you to not be able to respond with anything but that garbage you didn’t attack a single point that I made because you can’t. Like when somebody with no talent Coles an honest critic a hater.. soon as you don’t like something you called I’m a troll, Or bs words like draw man are used.
Not a single one of you attempted to debate me you just took a shot.. pretty weak
Why would you think our first flag is not relevant to the conversation?Don’t get ahead of yourself.. plenty of teams (st KOODA, north Melbourne, Port have won their first 11 games and looked like a million dollars..only for it to not count for much at the end of the year. Having said that, you’ve only won 2 flags. One was so long ago its not relevant to the conversation, and the other was an amazing month of football to come from the bottom of the eight. So if you win this grand final you will clearly be the greatest Bulldogs team ever. But if you don’t win the grand final.. you’re no better than the 97 Bulldogs.
i’m a Geelong supporter None of those teams in the 90s (that had massive winning streaks and multiple grand final appearances) deserve to even be in the same conversation as that 2007-2011 version. Even last years team last year’s team was better than any team Gary Ablett senior was in.. why? Because unless you win the big one... you’re not in the same stratosphere as a team that did. We performed a lot better in that losing grand final then we did in any of the ones in the 90s. Been five years since your last premiership, so it’s not the same era. This team doesn’t deserve ANY recognition until they do it on grand final day.. and even then can’t claim to be one of the greats until they Atleast win more than one flag in a three year period.. like Bris,Geel,Haw n Rich did.
For what it’s worth.. I think this WILL be the greatest Bulldogs team of all time. That they havent achieved anything significant yet.. and I’m not old enough to know that I’ve heard the 1985 Bulldogs were pretty good too.
