Shat the bed in the last few rounds or run out of petrol after shouldering a massive travel load?so the first half of the season doesn’t count? This argument is rediculously unbalanced and has been argued a million times. Richmond in my opinion over achieved in the first half of the season considering the amount we were on the road and with the amount of injuries and unavailabilities. This allowed us to set up the back half of the year. we only needed to drop 1 of those games we weren’t expected to win for eg Port or Freo and we miss the top 4.
WCE shat the bed twice in last 2 weeks giving up a 5 goal lead against Richmond and losing to Hawthorn. Win either of those the whole dynamics of the finals changes. So blaming the fixture is over looking the Eagles own short comings. As for 2020 the eagles are 1 of 4 teams I give a better then even money chance of winning it. Elite midfield. My only concern of the Eagles is the ageing legs in the front half and the reliability of Nic Nat.
they’re as good a chance as any
That's the challenge some teams need to rise to in order to win a flag.
Other teams get an arm chair ride travelling once in three months. That advantage was gifted to Richmond and they took full advantage. Good for them but let's not pretend it didn't exist.
That's the difference champ.
You call it sooking when really it's simply stating facts. How are facts sooking?
The AFL has done something to correct this in 2020 but it could do more to equalise the competition but it chooses not to because all it really cares about is $$$$$.
Two trips to WA and playing Geelong at home in Geelong isn't impossible is it? Not hard at all actually.
Enjoy the leg up while the list is good enough mate. Eagles will just keep on having a crack year in year out.
