I would need to check it, but its occurrence in the past two decades seems to suggest they are not exceptional. If WE aren't fit for them, that is different.But how many times do you get triple heavyweight champions in their 3rd year do it?
How many times do you get a team that has made the finals 9 out of 10 years and has a premiership in the middle of that run and play their away QF in a state that they have a positive W/L record in that 10 years?
How many times do you get a side that plays 15 games at the MCG each year and plays their away QF at the MCG rather than elsewhere at their opponents true home gound?
You finish 3rd and win a flag when there are exceptional circumstances. And looking at this with a Port bias, I don't see any exceptional circumstances for us on the horizon.
