Biggest and most successful club in modern football are the tiges.

we are in a 10 team, 5 million person town and have 105,000 members.

you are in a 2 team, 2.5 million person town and have 80,000 members. Let that lack of buy in sink in.

You are irrelevant east of the nullabor. Another WAnchise.

We do what we want. Get used to it.
Cats and dogs maybe

But our members are seated members - and our revenue per member reflects this minnow club supporter.

i always said when you guys were doing shit we should have just bought your whole outfit, lock, stock and barrel - taken your song and jettisoned you to the vfl.

We are from eagle-land .....

Lol. We both know you are going to need to try a bit harder than that. Come again.

Honestly, it would still be better than the made up song your currently using.

You lot constantly try and say we get a leg up in h and a - yet there it is - weve got by far the toughest fixture despite coming 5th
You have been given the hardest double up opponents based on 2019 finishing position...it doesn’t mean anything.

Last year Collingwood was rated by CD as having the hardest fixture...because we copped Melbourne twice!

LOL

picking at irrelevancies - sure sign youve lost the argument

Which club does the MCG belong to?


are you being deliberately dense?
No, it is fairly obvious that you are battling to come up with any specific advantage that is solely the domain of MCG tenants

WC travel a feck load more than SA based clubs, why aren’t you moaning about that?
yet strangely 2018 and 2019’s ladder were quite similar
??
In 2018 BL finished 15th, Dogs 13th and Dons 11th all made finals in 2019.

pretty normal for minimum of 3 finals teams to miss out the next year.

The pre-season fixture difficulty articles are about as useful as Robbo’s top50 lists.

But yeah, doesn’t surprise that you think they are helping whatever argument you are trying to make this time.

Aahhh so we cant equate away form in round 6 of 2017 or round 21 of 2017 with finals 2017

but you wish to equate away finals form 2019 with away finals form 2017

Got it.
I’m not equating anything. That’s exactly my point - there is no equivalence.

What has happened in earlier rounds of the season has been virtually irrelevant for Richmond in the latter part of the season for the last three years. In only one single game (v Pies 2018 PF) have the Tigers lost against a team they’d already played that season. That’s once in over 20 matches, and on that evening Collingwood would’ve beaten the AA side - they were exceptional.

Tapering for the business end of the season has worked very well for the Tigers, and allowed them to flog teams in September who’ve flogged them in April or May. Brilliant list management.

This idea that vic make the rules and everyone else needs to go along with it is an anachronistic and outdated attitude that has no place in a truly league. Victorian clubs are not the gate keepers of our national competition.
Whoever "Vic" is he or she doesn't make rules. The "rules" or in other words and I assume you mean the "landscape" of the comp is dictated by where the market is..............

Anyway myself, you and a few others are getting off topic.

Me thinks it's time to bump this old thread, if anyone wants you can continue the "vic centric" conversation here.
