Do you squabble with every poster? And that other guy AstuteTiger or whatever why are you guys so just plain disagreeable.

Talk about salty Tigers supporters who have not come to terms with not being in a GF that they thought would be a walk up start - then along came the Pies and nighty night for your lot. Still makes me smile.:tearsofjoy:

I dont know why opposition supporters keep saying this? I don't know one single tiger supporter that thought we would be a walk up start to the GF let alone certainties to go b2b last season. We all understand how hard it is to win a flag. Methinks it just makes for a better narrative(troll) for idiots like yourself to keep pushing this theory.

Anyone would think they win the flag every year , wonder whether he was still in stitches when the might of the WB knocked them off at home in 2016 final , bet he didn’t see that coming o_O

There were SO many post last season from richmond supporters about being unbeatable at their fortress the MCG (but before the start of the final series suddenly it held no advantage) alluding to them winning the GF, already having it sewn up before seasons end ect, you must have been living under a rock or not checking BF much at all.
The amount of times "It doesn't matter, the GF's at the MCG" was posted by your lot was incredible, it's a huge part of the dislike for richmond supporters.

You must be new to forums thats what its about debating, discussing topics etc, agreeing/not agreeing. I haven't seen you agree with tigers fans does that make you just wanting to argue, i say no as im sure you have your own thoughts, seriously what a ridiculous comment you made.

Salty lmao ive stated and guess u haven't gone through the pages tiges fans not upset we won the flag in 2017 and lost 2018 prelim that's footy win some/lose some. Dont assume what tiges fans are thinking as i can assure you we are not salty, now run along.

Well .... we don't win one every year but at least it's more often than one in 37 years!

4 flags in 26 years is a better average .... well some clubs I can think of!

You guys are now becoming old news and reaching back to 2016 - well ... yawn ... and yawn again!

Only one reigning Premier and it's not ............... well ....... we know who it's not!

Oh why it is that some posts here are "banter" and mine are the work of an "idiot troll"

Fair go please!

Salty, salty Richmond supporter. So, so sad.

Ok ... I will do this for this particular Tigers fan who seems to be suffering from dyscalculia!

:westcoast: 4 flags in 26 years = Average of one every 6.5 years

:richmond: 11 flags in 110 years (your figures) = Average of one in every 10 years

Almost twice as successful - flag wise.

Hmm ... what was that comment of yours about taking, "your foot out of ya big gob before posting next"

Outstanding advice and yet it seems more applicable to you than me at this time.

Perhaps, you're one of those tigers fans who only open their mouth to change feet! Maybe?

However I have made allowance for your ... how shall we say ... maths issue.:grin:

Premiers = :westcoast: Old news = :richmond: :neutral:

"Don’t use me to make you famous"

What??? Now that is one of the oddest things I have read in some time. Far too salty - more sugar needed over your way - I reckon!

Is this a footy discussion or a place where you measure your ego?

Make me famous - seriously?

Oh and you failed to mention the far, far better flag average - shall I do the maths with working out included?:D

100% - now if we hadnt of won 2017 absolutely I'd be salty af about last year, but we did so I felt exactly how you you mentioned - you win some/you lose some. Bring on 2019

Sheesh ... another turgid Tigers supporter.

Minnow???

So you are a ... what ... a whale maybe?

How do you determine what is a minnow?

What an very odd bunch of posters.

Maybe you've been here too long ... 'big dog':think:

Ultimately I don't GAF who any supposed big 4 is. Assuming your side is financially viable long term, all that really matters is who is the #1 team at the time. i.e. the reigning premier.
As luck would have it, that side is currently West Coast. All else can bow down and kiss our feet. And whatever else they feel like while they're down there. :moustache:

Carlton and Richmond definitely are, this is why we always get the Marquee Season Opener every season every year, despite Carlton being battlers for several years now.

Haters gonna hate, but them's the facts.

Can someone tell me why Sydney and Adelaide are in this discussion/poll ?

Hawthorn and West Coast are the only two clubs traditionally not considered 'big four' that should be considered on this list imo
