That first quarter. Like 5 year olds Xmas morning. By the 3rd they realised they were pov and didnt get s**t
I reckon 90% of comments in the first half were whinging about the umpires and 10% were about Brisbane’s poor kicking. Then they all logged out in the third quarter but came back for one last keyboard mash when Dusty took the piss with his throw.

Delicious.

Still haven't beaten anyone good.. you just know Hocking will change the rules again to try stop us, it worked well last time he did it!

I actually think there will be minimal rules changes if any come next year. They haven’t worked this year in terms of increased scoring. I was super against the kicking out rule but now I dont even notice it.

I think this will be a lesson for the AFL that making rules changes on the run, without proper trials is no good. Hasn’t made a bit of difference other than making our coaching group adapt and making us more formidable.

The bye didn't affect our momentum in 2017.. no reason why it would this time around.

Last year isn't a good comparison.. because we had clearly tailed off towards the end of the season, gastro going through the club in the lead up to the prelim was the nail in the coffin.
Prestia was on the Sunday footy show 5 weeks ago and said from round 1 we were the hunted and were basically forced to play at our highest level all year, and by the time the prelim came they hadn't a lot left in the tank and flatlined.

Can somebody please explain to me how the lions are favourites against GWS

Lions $1.65
GWS $2.35

I won $550 last week taking Richmond 40+ and thinking about going all in GWS 40+ paying $10
Geez Gun , GWS aint a patch on the Tigers on current form and suggesting Tigers & GWS same same come on

Mummy Bullied English and started their momentum , do you think he's going to do that against Stefan Martin ?

The Bulldogs down hill skied into the finals catching sides unbalanced by injuries
The Lions come from behind win against Geelong and their two games against us have showed plenty of back bone
and in front of a home crowd and everyone has seen the vision of Toby "the grub" Green pulling The Bont's hair and possibly scratching his face
GWS caught the Bulldogs by surprise with the rough stuff , the surprise element's gone
the Lions will be way more ready to rumble

will it be GWS has shot their load and on the road this weekend , their back end to the season has been very shaky $4.85 for them to lose by 40+ !!!

I suppose everybody has a different view but i just cant see how the Lions stop 10 A grade players even at home
Lets see how that works out and i look at it like i have $100 to lose but $5500 to win after richmond bringing home the bacon last week

I reckon Brisbane’s game day thread wasn’t even barracking as hard for Brisbane as the MB thread

I just don't trust Steve Hocking with being in charge.. everyone knows the rule changes haven't worked, but Hocking is Geelong through and through.. and it wouldn't surprise one bit to see him put Geelong before our great game!

Finished 2nd in the H&A, playing at the Gabba.

GWS played an underperforming Dogs.. punters clearly dont trust GWS.

FWIW I think the Lions will win too. - Hoping they knock off Collingwood after that too but that's much less likely. Then we can beat them for the third time in 5 weeks :D
We need to win our PF first!

In saying that who does everyone honestly rather play?
Geelong probably the obvious choice but we are losing our true home ground advantage like to the Pies last even though Geelong don't like the MCG however it's still in "Victoria".
Then you have the Eagles the reigning premiers who jumped us early only a couple weeks ago and ended in a hard fought win. They have to travel 2 weeks in a row and we'll have a true home ground advantage.

I'm saying I rather Geelong but not with great confidence.
