I hope you're right. The team has shown their ability to rise to the occasion over the last couple seasons, so I wouldn't give up hope.I actually don’t think what happens in the regular season directly correlates to what will happen in the finals. Look at last year beaten convincingly by Melbourne in round 22 then absolutely smacked them off the park in the prelim.
Geelong away from GMABCD Park is a different team. They are not playing as well now as they were in the beginning of the year.
Brissy jumped us with gusto at the beginning of the year after a very limited preseason. It was like a puppy playing with an old dog. The pup running around jumping and nipping at the old dog who just looks at it like what the fu**? You know the old dog is going to belt it into next week if things were serious.
I am looking forward to this game, but will not concede all is lost if we lose. I believe in this team.
Still, confidence plays a big part in how teams play. Getting pumped by all three of our competitors gives them confidence and us doubts.
