I'm always at a loss when somebody refers to "the good Tom Lynch"

Are you sure you didn't accidentally look up the same player twice

Since 2007 the correlation between minor premiers and grand final winners has been in a 3 year cycle.

2007 Geelong (mp) win grand final
2008 Hawthorn finish 2nd and win gf
2009 Geelong finish 2nd and win gf
2010 collingwood (mp) win gf
2011 Geelong finish 2nd win gf
2012 Sydney finish 3rd win gf
2013 Hawthorn (mp) win gf
2014 Hawthorn finish 2nd win gf
2015 hawthorn finish 3rd win gf

Therefore minor premier due this year. Or perhaps this is the year the pattern finally stops.

Lindsay Thomas has a strange run of coincidences around him...

He was waiting for Harvey downstairs while Harvey got delisted.

He handballed to Swallow when he was wrong-footed and did his Achilles and has never been AFL standard since.

LT was the mentor of young Kane Turner who was was suspended for months for serious drink driving this year.

Brad Scott publically admitted to training his players to cheat after responding to a LT duck at the SCG.

Brad Scott and North were fined $80,000 for making up stories about LT and the umpires.

Brad Scott kicked the security guard in the back and was under police investigation for assault because he was furious about LT's first half in Hobart and stormed down the race.

Luke Hodge belted Swallow while getting up from tackling Thomas 'high' in the forward line that lead to the infamous 'flying the flag is crap' comments from Brad Scott.

LT's best mate was Daniel Wells and this year it was Boomer.

All of North's other small forwards can never get on the park through injury, while LT plays through default most weeks.

All the rule changes for breaking opposition players legs, head butting, ducking, diving etc are more bad luck than coincidence.

Still believe in the curse of Lindsay Thomas?

Someone tweeted the following. (Not verbatim.)

October 1 1927, Jack Beveridge plays in the first of 4 consecutive Collingwood premierships.
October 1 2016, Jack's grandson Luke Beveridge coaches his first premiership.
and it was Bevo who stopped a team on course to equal a record his grandfather was part of.

Did you watch the B&F last night? And did you watch Lindsay's speech?
Nope. Am so sick of the bulls**t.

Club is a laughing stock and stuck in the twilight zone of s**tness.

Excuses, bulls**t and delusion. Heard it all before and am so sick of Thomas ruining games and the clubs reputation.
I'd prefer he got his charity at the salvos like everyone else.

The club is bigger than Thomas.

Nah. Banned from his own board and some of the s**t he posts about Lindsay borders on character assassination. Either a troll or sad, sad human.
Some of the clowns on that board put character ahead of performance. The strange part is it's a butt kissing, cheating, diving and ducking character.

He is actually anti-shinboner regardless of the deluded ramblings and bullying of the North board 24/7 brigade.
