not sure why his religious beliefs are relevant - youre lucky he’s Christian or you’d be considered anti Semite or an islamophobe - Houli is a god botherer as well in that regard

on leaving for money - he’s a professional athlete - he’ll have 50 years of not being a footballer - cash in whileyou can -any other professional would
Houli doesn’t post stuff on social media condemning unbelievers and sinners to hell. I really don’t care what anyone believes, just as long as they don’t get on a soap box and try to tell me how to live my life. To me that’s a god-botherer as opposed to someone who just happens to be religious.

Re the money sure, but then he burned that club (after recommitting to them) to go back and win another flag. Shows a distinct lack of moral fiber imo. I don’t begrudge Geelong taking him back, but the fairy-tail narrative and hoping he is rewarded for that is odd considering he’s shown by his actions that he’s all about himself.

I'd rather be kicked out by the eventual premiers rather than the runner ups.

Go tigs
Pretty much my take honestly. Also great memories of watching the Tigers smack the Crows in that Grand Final with all you can drink Stella at the Belgian Beer Club watching the mood of the Crows fans gradually shift 😁👍 all aboard the Tiger train...for a week at least.

You realise he was trying to get back to Geelong for family reasons right? And that he paid back a large sum of his contract to GCS?

Only thing I’ll be supporting for the next 6 months is Netflix and Dan Murphy’s. Who ever wins their supporters will be unbearable. The real loser is going to be your neutral fans of the game that have to live with drivel that a; Richmond is one of the greatest sides ever, despite the horrible running maul style game plan, where wanting to stab yourself in the eyeballs with a pencil is a much preferred option. Or b; Geelong, with the drivel on how great they were for little Gazza, despite being highly overrated for a vast majority of his career and being heavily protected from the umpires, and how good it is for Paddy to win his premiership, to the point, that sticking the pencil in your ears to rupture your ear drums is much more preferabl.

so for this neutral supporter, Dan Murphy’s a few good movies, with a no care factor in who wins or loses, and writing this year off as a bad dream and just totally ignoring the result, living in ignorant bliss.

Not sure a post riffing off a first generation British Romantic poet is going to get much appreciation on BigFooty.

But good on you for having a crack - I enjoyed it. We all know Blake would have been a Tigers man.

He requested a trade less than 12 months after re-signing. The money was because his contract was heavily front ended.

He’s obviously reassessed his life and decided to change his focus. Fine, but I don’t get the love for a guy that has continually burned the clubs around him for his changing personal desires.

Apart from the outliers who really hate either club particulary more than the other (looking at you Hawks fans) I think neutrals might find it an enjoyable GF when you have little emotional investment in one of the competing teams. I know that's how I felt in 2018, didn't really think much of WC or the Pies and it turned out to be the most enjoyable GF I've watched (that Geelong hasn't played in)
