Amusingly, you have just made a statement that Collingwood = Carlton = Essendon. 3 clubs that have won 1/3rd the amount of Grand Finals between them as Richmond has in the current millennium.

Speaking of droughts as you are so fond of doing...your team seems to have a habit of putting 30+ year droughts between Grand Final victories, 1958 + 32 years = 1990 + 33 years = 2023. If things don't go wrong you might be a chance 34 years from now. Congratulations on your projected 2057 Grand Final victory Collingwood. :tearsofjoy:


Pies did win 2010 also, three Flags in the AFL era. Hawks have 5, Cats and Eagles 4, Lions, Tigers and Pies three.

Geelong 2008 blew it on the day, otherwise they with the 21-1 record would have been the one that Dan would have found hard to promote Essendon above using his metrics.
Nah that loss to Collingwood on that cold May night should have been 120 points, not 86. They were insipid.Pies made Geelong look like a wooden spoon team.
Pies missed plenty of easy ones and Cats kicking 3 goals in 2 mins after half time flattered the scoreboard. Could have ended up with 4.6 instead of 7.6.

That loss was one that saw two defeats intersperse with winning sequences of 15, 12 and 15 before the '08 GF loss. Coupled with the 13-0 start to 2009 before the Saints defeat, Geelong were 55-3 for about 60 weeks of footy, pretty much imperious, aside from the most important game of the year in '08. That loss to the Pies was pretty much out of the arse in both cases. But maybe it was a prelude to the Pies own period of dominance which saw just two losses and two draws occur after a loss to the Lions in Rd 10 2010. The third Collingwood loss in about 40-odd games was to Geelong, Rd 24 2011, which was as much an outlier as the 2008 loss was by the Cats. Both sides in those periods were as good a thing almost as Winx.
