I feel like people have completely misused the term "choke"

Greg Norman choked blowing a 5 stroke lead
Crows choked in 93 prelim blowing a 43 point lead
Bulldogs choked 97 prelim
etc etc

Port just got ahead of themselves and believed their own hype but you cant choke in a game that you didn't even turn up to

My issue with Estia is that the size of their mains are minuscule.

When I was last there they even advise you on their menu that you need to order around 3 to 4 mains for every 2 people.

The food is great, but if you're hungry and wanting a decent sized meal then it'll cost you a fortune.
I must admit when i go there we just order our dishes and we never go away hungry but it is not cheap

There's normally about a 20% bump needed to move up.
Once you get to a top-10 pick, the premium goes up to 50% or more easily.

Eg. in 2018, the Poo traded with Freo and paid about 46% extra
... port 11,23,30,49 = 3060
... for freo 6,2019r3(#45?) = 2098
(I set the Freo 2019r3 pick as 45 as what I might have thought Freo would finish at in 2019 - the pick ended up as 49)

Another is in 2016 where I think Hawks paid about 67% extra to Saints in the trade:
... stk 10,68 = 1454
... for haw 23,36,2017r1(15?) = 2429
(I set Hawks to have a high finish in 2017)


Imagine how much it would take to trade for pick 1 :eek:


[I assume my data from wiki and points calcs are correct, was a while ago]

Okay okay

Crows didn't choke in the 2017 GF, they just did really really really bad.

Everyone happy now?

Well the 2 best teams played each other. 1 got a leg up as expected and also played well. the other wasn’t good enough on the day.

I think people over complicate this sh*t.

yeah.. this is how I see it too really..

port were only playing in the prelim due to the soft draw.. they simply aren't a good enough side to win a GF let alone win through to one..

Now if they had a harder draw, dominated all the other top 4/top 8 teams all season and were 20-30 points up at halftime in their prelim only to collapse in a heap and be overrun in the second half.. yes, you could call it a choke.
