    Bugger, got the Cats confused with the Swans. You are all interchangeable prelim final enemies ;)

    If (when) the Eagles get knocked out I'll be right behind the Crows.

    They've built their list with no favours from cola or academies and even lost a lot through free agency. And they had to deal with the Phil Walsh tragedy. I really have a lot of respect for the Adelaide Football Club.

    I'd like to see GWS win. Whilst the fanbase is small they are quite passionate. Been to plenty of their homegames while I was living up there.

    Adelaide, enjoyed their footy this year and if it's an interstate team no one in Melbourne really cares and we don't hear about it, we'll never hear the end of it if it's Richmond

    Not Adelaide. My celebration of twenty years of continual finals chokes is just around the corner. And may it last for an eternity.
    Not Geelong. Seen way too many fat granny's in hoops scooting around on mobility vehicles and waving their gammon flags to last a lifetime. No more please.
    Not West Coast. Just hurry up and secede you Saffa muppets.
    Not GWS. Meh club, meh care factor.

    So it has to be the Tigers....But torn a bit on this one. It would be great to watch the aftermath of a Grand Final choke when 5 goals up. But if the Tigers lost that means one of the above 4 won and that would make me puke. So it's the Tigers for me.

    Like what I am seeing tonight.
    Did the right thing and went with Lobb to be number 1 ruck and not Simpson.
    Just a way better balance of smalls and talls and benefits coming through.

    I think you'll find non Victorians hoping for a Richmond win are actually wishing this upon Melbourne

    I demand a Stevie J option...... 4 goals on one quarter, channelling his inner Nick Davis.

    Now that West Coast are finally done and buried I'm all for a GWS-Adelaide GF. Been too long since we've had an all interstate one. The second next best thing for me would be Adelaide-Richmond, with Adelaide prevailing.

    Is there a clash of jumpers between Adelaide and GWS? GWS orange and the blur of yellow and red that Adelaide have?

    I've been on the Crows bandwagon since the beginning of finals and I'm backing them to win. Hoping for an Adelaide/Richmond GF and if Adelaide don't get up will still be reasonably happy despite having to put up with smug, thin-skinned Richmond-supporting in-laws (not saying they're representative of Richmond supporters in general).

    Also firmly in the 'anyone-but-GWS' camp and tired of seeing Geelong in prelims but will take them in a Geelong/GWS GF. Was glad to see Sydney turfed (same reasons as Cats, tired of seeing them in the finals), but disappointed for Port, Essendon and WC

    Of all the clubs left, I like Geelong the most, but...
    Richmond winning would just be very exciting because of the fans, and such a huge, pleasant shock for me, since in the preseason I expected them to be bottom four (shame on me).
    Adelaide really deserve the flag after being such a feared team all year, they're interstate and have a good song.
    I like GWS and since they're new it'd be cool to see them win their first flag, even if it does worsen the Freo non-premiers criticism.

    Giants were good tonight. Had that ruthless efficiency that makes them so dangerous. Kicking, running, and accuracy. Play like that next week and we will have a good game.
