    I agree Fred.

    I saw the GAS times as a youngling but I still know about, respect and count the 63 Polly Farmer times etc.

    They all count.

    Absolutely. Of course they do.

    Why does everyone enjoy hanging shit on St.Kilda? Because they’ve won one premiership in 120+ years. If only recent ones count, why does the club have all the VFL/AFL flags on the stand?

    It’s a difficult one, if you’re drawing on 30 years of history to try and prove your arigmrnt then it’s only fair they can increase that to 50 to retort. Typically I try to just keep most discussions to AFL premierships. For one I’ve been alive the whole era and there seems to be less influence of chance in winning flags.

    You couldn't have teed that up any better, there's already version of it based around Bruce and his lovechild.

    Wow. Didn’t even realise that. Imagine what this year’s Brownlow with Martin would be like.

    Just started a Jarryd Roughead is a shit captain thread in the bay. Get this vibe on there he is a protected species. Will be interesting to see if it's deleted or it sparks genuine outrage rather than just usual banter.

    Will be beautiful seeing the reaction editing his name out with Joel Selwoods. A captain who has taken his team to finals countlessly and can play football.

    Some gems from our friends at Punt Road in the "Whose list is in the most trouble age wise?" thread on the main board...

    And my personal favourite...

    Oh dear indeed....

    To be fair though, most of them have only started following AFL since September.

    I’m often surprised that the deluded opposition supporters really doesn’t grasp that we had a complete rebuild with very low picks compaired to other teams in a similar time period. I think we have done well to remain in contention while rebuilding from one of the club’s best team list in its history.

    I guess they only look at the poor final displays and won’t look at the bigger picture.

    Champion Data disputes that.

    P.S. winty

    “Surprisingly, premier Richmond, which beat minor premier Adelaide by eight goals in the grand final, has just the ninth-best list, according to Champion.”

    RIchmond has easily the worst list bar Collingwood 90’s team to win a flag, but they played together very well.

    I hope our list can start doing that with hopefully a more mature side and less injuries.

    But **** me I’m over the Tigers numbnuts acting like they have the best list in history, enjoy the flag no doubt but tone it down abit please.

    The entire finals series reminds me of a quote I heard the other day, "Hard work will beat talent if the talent doesn't work hard."

    The Tigers winning the flag really throws the argument "a champion team always beats a team of champions" out the window.

    Somebody obviously had Richmond supporters in mind when he coined the expression "Dumb Luck".
