I’m confused....do Freo supporters want to be acknowledged as the stronger team going into this game because you are confident of getting the win or do you want to be the underdog so you can claim an upset if you win and dismiss the result if you lose? 🤔

Exactly.

I've suggested a few times that Freo are cherry ripe to win this but folks still want to insist it will be an upset.

Is it because they just assume WC are better regardless of personnel?

Yet despite only making the top 4 once between 2016-2020, West Coast are clearly a under performing top 4 side, not a lucky one off side
I'm saying that on talent, WC underachieved by missing the top 4 the past two years.

In 2018, WC won 10 in a row. They beat Richmond and beat Collingwood three times, including twice at the MCG. Without some very good players. They were lucky in what sense? Because Richmond lost a PF?

The lack of talent at West Coast, shows that they weren't a top four side and overachieved in 2018

So ladder position is an accurate reflection of quality when WC missed the top 4 but it's an inaccurate reflection when they won the flag?

Does the result reflect quality or doesn't it?

Surely it's one or the other.

It's a reflection that West Coast overachieved in 2018, and that 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2020 show the true quality of their side
