Gabba home final secured. All we needed today.

Given our horrid run with injury this year (Cutler, Brown, Black, Christensen and Tom Joyce) it's been awesome to make top two.

Once we have our best team out there we'll be much more competitive. Kept it even after Richmond jumped us in the first quarter.

Really have to find a way to stop Lids next time.
Horror run with injury? You are taking the piss. You have had 11 players play all games compared to our 2.

How many marks inside 50 did the Lions get? Were completely covered by the Tigers defence. Need to go with a Bulldogs style play on surge game, more handpasses and linkages. Looked good when taking the Tiges' own game to them. I feel they can win if they totally change their approach. Hopefully Fagan does something radical and effective. Tigers playing as well as I've seen em play.

If Soldo keeps playing like this Nankervis won’t get his spot back.
I’ve been all for nank coming into replace soldo all year however now I’d play them both, Nank comes in for balta I reckon as the only change if he’s right to go.

I think this loss comes back to our soft draw too. Surprised no one has mentioned this. The AFL didn't make us play anyone good all year and now we've been found out by a quality side.

It pisses me off that the Victorian centric media don't mention some of our stars like Black being unavailable due to humanitarian efforts overseas.

You don't see Alex Rance on survivor, that's all I'm saying.
No he isn't... But that other absolute super star for us Shaun Hampson is.. So you know like for like

I wasn't born during our last FINAL mate.

I'm just so excited to see the boys out there again. Been a long 50 years
Great to see a mutual show of respect between Tigers and Lions fans are both sides' complete lack of finals success in recent times. Brings you goosebumps.
