The Big Dance - Grand Final Day, 2017

Recommended Posts

Still feel sick. Especially from listening to the Tigers' theme song for the 50th time.

This is what you can do with 22 players that are RELENTLESS. Run. Tackle. Pressure.

There is simply no more room in the game for those that dont want it 100%.

Well done Richmond. Showed a lot of heart.

Amazing team football from the Tiges. And their off-field personnel changes are well proven. A massive 10/10 for all involved. 

Gotta feel for Hardwick. Resilience and Perseverance.

Now it is our turn.

Houli absolutely robbed of the Norm Smith. Dusty played well in the 2nd half, but only just.

Well that completes the set now. Every Vic club has 'got it' at some point during the AFL era except the dees! Yes i am being bitter. By 'got it' i mean showed some resolve and stood up when it counted.

Sadly this just annoys me even more in regards to the dees. Now i think back to the disgusting and embarrassing showing in the 2000 grand final...jeepers even when we were decent we didn't get it...

What [censored] is that? Martin with the Norm Smith?  [censored] off.  It is a popularity contest now, not a competition.  Has been the worst season on record.  Howe robbed of the mark of the year.  An average goal of the year.  Dangerfield gett No no votes in the last round so Dusty wins clear.  Poor one sided umpairing all year, and now the Norm Smith??

Agree Houli was brilliant. At least Adelaide will be great this weekend!

we must have the longest premiership drought now by a very big margin

I know Bulldogs were the longest but were not Richmond next?

St Kilda one theirs in 66

We weren't even nearly good enough. Richmond have been consistent. We are a bit of a rabble. I could make a reasonable argument that our list is on par - on talent. But we have some ways to go. On the upside, we saw this year how far a side (Richmond) can come in the space of a season. There is no reason we cannot do that in 2018. But, as I said "we have some ways to go".

Mate we still need to go through the season where we make finals get flogged and excuse our players because  it was their first final and it was a bit tough. 2019 best case for us!

Agree, Dusty was good but he was 3rd or 4th best behind Houli, Lambert and perhaps even with Prestia.

@dazzledavey36called the Tiges as the real deal early in the year...I thought not. The Tiges are my blind spot and Hardwick is now a Premiership coach. Never thought I would see the day.

Good call 'Dazzle'...

I hope Lever doesn’t bring any of the Adelaide “fighting spirit” when he comes over.

I really think Lever is one of a handful of Crows who can hold his head up.

Can't give it to an Adelaide player but Matt Crouch was excellent in a losing team...
