Still reckon that 2017 was the best chance Geelol had for winning a GF!
It will be funny if the Tigers win the flag with sheds Dusty and meatball all having Blinders and Dusty 'non wins' the Brownlow. I wonder what the AA conversation will be thenIn hindsight and after consideration AA selectors would like to make 3 changes - swap Hawk for Dusty at FF, Sheds in for Charlie C and Meatball to the midfield for Tim Kelly - instant 5 goal better side.
I love listening to Nick Riewoldt on how we play. He does seem to be the only person who truly gets that we are the best process driven team in the AFL by a country mile. He backed us to win the flag about a month ago and now some of his media comrades reckon he's a tiger supporter.Kingy did say one thing yesterday that was true. We are so efficient with the way we play that traditional stats for us dont really matter i.e. clearances and possessions. We play so differently to every other side, its like they NFI what we’re doing. Nick Riewoldt nailed it. Listen to him the way he talks about our game - most intelligent bloke in the media to comment on it
Dont underestimate lions and giants. Lions learning fast and the RFC game will have them ready for pies if they make it, and Giants have found a hard edge that can match the pies.fu** Collingwood have been kissed on the dick. Red carpet laid out for them straight to the granny.
They really should be embarrassed if they don’t win the flag given the soft run they’ll have into it, whilst their opponent will likely be battered and bruised after coming up against fought opponents.
EGirls scary with Nic Natnoo - especially when he has free reign to throw players into the fence without consequence.
Although them having to travel cross country 3 times in 7 days leading into our game should give us an advantage.
McGovern is also a fat campaigner and goes to water when he has to be accountable on a man (like he did in R22).
And Collingwood are s**t, don't forget that.
We went in with 3 unfit players. Dusty couldn’t run and had lost his zip factor. Astbury was in la la land after being on an IV drip most of the week and Prestia may be had broken rib or similar. No-one did a job on Cox’s run to the ball as a consequence of Astbury being absent. Different this year plus Lynch.Reckon the Tiger's had a massive brain fade that day. Sidearse was again allowed to roam free on the half back line and their midfield creamed us.
It would be an epic granny if it comes to it this year and whilst we are still missing some good players I think we're hitting our straps at the right time and... #pieshaveinjuries
Giants would have beat them in the Prelim in 17.Still reckon that 2017 was the best chance Geelol had for winning a GF!
They were a tough side then and matched us all the way in the PF till Cotch burst the game open...late 3rd Q...
I reckon they still think that way...that we pinched their GF!...because of their player recruiting for 2019...all top ups, standard practise for a side that thinks it's premiership window is still slightly open and closing slowly...
There I said it...
If tassie gets a team...whorethorn wont win another flag for 50 years.....deliciousI know one thing. If we play West Coast you know the dockers board will be all over us. Maybe the dawks board if we play Geelong, but they are a sooking bunch too. Can't accept the fact their reign is over
I couldn’t find the head to head finals stats, why I wonderfu** me, look how these arrogant campaigners present their head to head stats. No wonder they're salty that the times are a changin.
