We were pretty confident ahead of the 2017 GF too. We know how that turned out...

Geelong would have knocked you off if they'd kicked straight in the second term. They should have been 8 goals up at the main break.
Sorry for the late reply, but while yes the ball was in their forward line a while and they did kick some points, it's not a given that if you kick a goal that after the next ball up that the ball will automatically just appear inside 50 again for another shot at goal. The ball is back in the middle and with the 666 rule it could just as easily go the other way for a quick reply.

Not trying to stir anyone up, but Grimes' staging is a blight on the game.
Not only gets away with it, he's incentivized to keep on doing it by the umps. Awful.
Obviously a good player, not calling him a hack.
No point focussing on Grimes if you want to get rid of staging. Fact is they all do it.

Cox, Danger, Selwood, Walters, Cameron etc etc etc all guilty of it.

Which was more enjoyable for tigers fans

17 or 19
Hard to say, 17 I was nervous all game and only really believed that we had won it when Butler kicked the goal in the last quarter. When I looked back that happened when we were over 40 points up and there was only a few mins left but being a long term Richmond supporter I have seen us lose from what looked like dominant positions, so still had to wait until the final siren to believe it. This year I was pretty confident at 1/2 time and by 3/4 time knew that we had won it and was able to just sit back and watch the last quarter and enjoy it.

So I think I enjoyed both the same, just in different ways.

If GWS had put up a fierce fight and
only failed at the end they would have won enormous respect today, inside and outside the AFL.

But I seriously can’t see this as anything but a massive blow to their long-term viability in western Sydney.

How many non-committed western Sydney sports fans are ever going to jump on board now?
Don't think it really matters in the end. The committed supporters will be there no matter what (as we have seen over the years when teams like mine have been rubbish for years) and as we know the average Sydney people like an event and jump on a winner. So if the Giants get on a roll then the non-committed fans will be there.

After Phil Davis was penalised to the maximum for beating Riewoldt in a perfectly legal contest the whole Giants team went into their collective shells. That's not on him.
Are you really suggesting that the entire team is so mentally weak that they fell apart because of 1 decision that you say was wrong. Better hope that GWS never get a decision against them ever again or they will lose by 15 goals every game from now on!

What a ridiculous comment. How did they even make the GF?

This will always go down as the most undeserving premiership in my eyes, complete horses**t frees going their way early killing the morale of the visitors.

And I hope this becomes to be known as a phyrric victory for the Tigs
Awwww that's nice, but gues what.

Absolutely no-one gives a Sh!t what you think.

But we do love your saltiness

Ahhhhhh so Kochie caught on to our devillish GF day plan - subliminal tunes ;)

Port Adelaide chairman David Koch hits out at Richmond Grand Final advantage

"Port Adelaide chairman Koch, who attended the AFL grand final with rival Crows chairman Rob Chapman, said he heard the MCG scoreboard and sound system play the tiger roar, which has been used toe celebrate Richmond goals during home matches at the home of football this season. "

"Koch told FIVEaa Radio on Tuesday morning he is concerned by the advantages given to Melbourne-based clubs after busting the MCG scoreboard breaking neutrality in the grand final. "

We don't need any trades - just more boomboxes :D
It happens at the Adelaide Oval as well. When Adelaide kick a goal you hear "faaaaaark" and Port, the sound of a gaol door slamming shut.

At least it got Essendon off the "five goals in a grand final joke"! I guess that you're just a glass half empty person.

Just as bulls**t about the Premiership standard of averaging 100 points a game in attack.

For the record, Richmond averaged 86 points in attack, GWS 87 points
After the round 14 bye -- when our season really started warming up, we averaged 99.4 points per game, so I'd say the 100 point "rule" holds up.

ummmm no.

its judged by 22 games, not by the last 7-9 games of the regular season.

Only 2 sides averaged 90 points a game in attack, they were geelong and brisbane.
