    Tears are usually salty, Richmond tears are sweet.

    I think it will be won and loss with Jacobs pulling down the Nankervis shortz and leaving a big red welt mark on his backside. As a result with Leppa now a tiger it wouldn't surprise me if they made a play for Stef to shore up the their ruck stocks for next season.

    The Nank tank has been pretty good this year though.
    If Adelaide win the ball in and around the contest and get the ball moving forward. With their forward line, I cant see Richmond winning it.
    Adelaide by 32.

    Hope the Tigers win. Not sure why there is so much dislike of them on here. I have liked the way they have gone about it this finals series and called it a year or two ago that they can win the premiership with their list. Crows though seem to have a stronger forward and defence IMO but I think the Tigers have the better starting 4 midfield but they lack depth there. Hopefully it will be a good game if both teams bring their best.

    Hell of a call there well done. Hope you backed it. Love the way they have gone about their footy, high pressure, great tackling.

    Nope go the crows. I think it will be one sided affair. Don't be surprised to see crows win by 40+

    Here's a whacky prediction; Umpires to be influenced by the crowd and sentiment of the Tiger fairy tale and the free kick count to be rather lopsided in the first 3/4.
    Crows to be screwed and Tigers given their flag. Everyone afterwards to say how well they played and deserved it despite the Crows' inability to buy a free kick for most of the game. Most will say of the missed frees; "Glad they let those sort of ones go in finals" meanwhile ignoring all the ones the other way that weren't let go.

    love their forward line, it's great to watch when up and about but also the cotchin/martin midfield is so dynamic. Gotta give Cotchin some credit he's really stepped up this finals series and is throwing his body on the line... albeit rather controversy

    I don't think there can be a draw anymore? Didn't they change it?

    And Zorko appears quick as his stride in half as long, so has to move twice as fast.

    Saad might break the tape...and then keep on running, peeling off his jumper as he goes.

    Crows fans are the most insufferable in the league, and I live in Adelaide... so I've probably gotta go for Richmond... but it doesn't sit right with me
