Regardless of what happens this finals series, this is the best and most successful team that I've been alive to witness (36 yo) seeing blokes like shedda, Cotch, dusty and Jack apply their trade is a treat and something we all shouldn't take for granted as nothing lasts forever..... Enjoy the ride tigs fans regardless of what unfolds.
Would you say it's a good time to be alive for a Tiger supporter?!?

You can bet the media will say the exact same thing like they did with the eagles, lions won't be disheartened with that performance etc.Big difference now there at home at the Gabba pressure on them we like it that way .Listening to Fagan he seems confident said we were in the game for 3 qtrs,but half a qtr.I don't think so we owned the 1qtr and 2 qtr and the 4 qtr they had to come in the 3 qtr said they led most stats.Should have buried them.That's the dissatisfaction for me we can't put teams out of the game or to the sword no matter ladder position.

Bolton didn’t get to the right positions today when up forward on a number of occasions was flying for marks when he should have been front and centre.
The last time he did that a few times in a game he was dropped.

Can't see that happening this time though. Who would come in? Butler? On second thought, let's see if he can get it out of his game.

Sorry guys but I've been to the MB (for a laugh) and we are no chance because Brisbane tanked today, we can't play away from the G, we've never won an interstate final and Brisbane have never lost a final at the GABBA. I might have to get the s**t they are on sounds like good s**t.
We were leagues ahead of them yesterday, obviously they’re a good team to finish where they did but Us at 100% and them at 100% we win by 6 goals. We didn’t put them to the sword in the second quarter where the ball ran against us, further more some of their goals had high degree of difficulty and We didn’t kick as well as we should, This is why I’m so critical with George and Rioli, both not good set shots.

Bolton definitely has Butler covered imo
interested to see how Aarts and Pickett perform in the 2s although you’d reckon it’d be a big call to bring a player into s final that has no AFL exposure

Good 3rd Q by Lions but otherwise thought we were in control

2 of their first 4 goals were from sloppy turnovers by Vlaustin and Prestia and then in the 3rd Q a momentum killer when Bolton should have dished off for a goal instead got caught and they scored- 2 goal turnaround.

I keep saying, its in the 2019 club constitution to win by 30 points or less against AFL sides.

I'm all for replacing under performing small forwards like Bolton, George and Rioli but I can't see anyone on our list who could do the job better. George's kicking for goal improved in the second half but Rioli and Bolton have you heart in mouth when they are lining up from 30 meters out. I'm more inclined to shuffle the deck chairs a bit here. I'd bring Caddy into his familiar role of third forward where he's been so effective in the past and move either Rioli or George onto the wing. Caddy with 20% more possessions would improve our performance by 40%.

And while I respect Neale's performance in accumulating possessions, he reminds me of that RAF wartime story about Allied planes returning to base from missions absolutely smashed with gaping holes everywhere. The ground crew repaired them but instead of reinforcing those parts that were damaged, they strengthened other areas that, while intact, were considered to be vulnerable. The reasoning was that if the plane could fly while damaged in that way, there was no need to do anything other than perform basic patchwork on the torn bits and build up protection for those parts that, if damaged, could bring the plane down. So with Neale, he gets 50+ possessions and we win by about 5 goals having left about 5 others on the field. I suspect Dimma put more work into targeting Brisbane's other effective threats than he will in reducing Neale's possession count.

And big Ivan must stay. If Nank doesn't get up, Chol to replace Balta.

One curve ball.
Markov?
Been handy up fwd in the vfl.
Quick off the mark.
Put him on Hodge.
Expose Hodge with speed.
Not confident in Bolton like some others are.

Brisbane need a change of strategy if they can hope to beat us. Add a monster forward and yeah they'd be a worry. But they don't have one. Where are they going to get their goals from next time?

That we let Neale get 50 possessions and were happy to let him get it says he is not damaging. Zorko is way more of a damaging player.

Brisbane play an exciting game but IMHO don't have the players to beat us. They may well make the granny on the other side of the draw though. I think they would worry Geelong and Collingwood.

We had some ineffectual players yesterday and I think we'll be even better next week. The only difficult decision is Balta.

I'm confident that we should win in Brisbane.
If Nank replaces Balta, he will get more grabs and effective possessions than either Balta or Chol have been lately - as well as being a stronger body in ruck contests. If Chol replaces Balta he should hopefully respond well to getting another chance and realise that he needs to play at his best to keep his spot. If Balta stays, he should be better for yesterday's run in the 1's.
Chimp looked to get better as the game went on and should have more of an influence than he did yesterday - which will also improve others around him and make it harder for brisbane to pressure Dusty (if they are thinking of making that a focus).
Grimes will be even more confident on his ankle.
The bounce of the ball can't be so cruel to us 2 weeks in a row.
The whole club knows extremely well what can happen in finals if we don't bring our A game.

I'm more confident with Bolton when he's playing on ball. He seems to try more of the show pony rubbish when he's in the forward line.

Thought the umpires came for Brisbane hard when it looked like we were going to run away with the game.

AFL think it’s really important to get the game back up and running in QLD to avoid clubs folding.

They know Richmond fans will help sell out the Gabba and make Brisbane feel like an AFL city.

This happened in the first two quarters and I think the main culprit was Meredith who, in retrospect, just seemed to be off in his decision making. O'Gorman who was our nemesis last time we met him was actually fairly sharp. I understand, and please correct me if I'm mistaken, that the umpires get feedback in their rooms during the half time break. Meredith settled down in the final two quarters and while there were a number of dodgy 50:50s I don't think the umpires particularly influenced the contest. More our mistakes. We'll see who we get in Brisbane in a fortnight. I'm OK with most of the others but Shane McInerney remains a bit of a worry. A very pedantic schoolmaster type umpire with an ordinary feel for the game and an apparent dislike of Jack R.
