The moment you know when you’re going to win

Recommended Posts

When they played the national anthem, the Melbourne players and their coach stood as one with arms interlocked while their Geelong counterparts stood as individuals.

It’s all about the team and not individuals and our boys played like a team all night - the others played for themselves as exemplified by their captain’s tantramous exit onto the interchange bench in the third quarter when he robbed his team of a certain goal at a crucial time in the game.

An old friend who barracks for the dogs 

sent a text about half way through last quarter

”time to start singing “ a clearer head than mine could see the result.

I needed one more goal. Only 10 minutes left  they needed to kick same score they had all night  would not happen,

bring on the Wees n poos 

Go Dees !!

Ditto - we said the same about their pathetic attempt to out-psych us during the anthem

Well now they have 6 months to practice some 'esprit de corps'!

I also thought we stood united and would win when I saw our boys with arms linked and Geelong standing half a metre apart for the national anthem.

But the moment of really believing was when Hannan waltzed into goal and Jones kicked a ripper.  The guy behind me kindly said to relax and remember to breathe!

Bit rich telling Geelong FC how to stand...how many finals have they played since us?

When we stood tall in the first ten minutes and didn’t let the occasion overwhelm us. I knew we would win then.

Cue Mitch Hannan, Titanic moment? That was the equivalent to the Kent goal against West Coast for me, where the lid blew off. Happy times.

He’s not telling Geelong anything but rather, what he perceived at the time which was the togetherness of one team and the cockiness of the other. Forget how many they have “played since us”. Think about how many each of them will play in the future.

Thought when Jones kicked a captains goal in the last was the moment I knew we were playing Hawthorn next week.

This. We were all over them and they were already starting to panic. It was chaos ball which we do much better than them.

It was the equivalent of the Watts goal on Queen’s Birthday last year.

I really thought it was strange they didn't lock arms considering the [censored] about Adelaide last year.

If i'm honest i was confident from the get go. We looked harder, faster and stronger. Oliver running through Selwood was the moment when i thought yeah we ain't losing. Classic Melbourne sets in and we don't put them away and i was a tad nervous. Then Viney killed Selwood with that tackle i had a good laugh. When Weid kicked his 3rd i went to the family room to celebrate. Then the cats kick the next two in a minute and i run to my room and pray to god to reverse the jinx i set upon us.

i noticed this too and it gave a me a feeling that we had this 

of course that was after a Seagull shat on me while i was sitting in my seat 

and would you believe the seats we had , was right next to the last game I took my wife and kids altogether as a family before she passed and we all watched melbourne win. So yea I knew we would win . well still very nervous , but I knew someone was watching us 

not that i believe ion anything like that , but too many things happened last night to say we would

This photo has the colouring of a photo taken in the late 1950s. If I'd seen the photo at the time it was taken, I would have said I knew then we were going to win just because of that.

dont think it says anything really, correlation not equalling cause n all - having said that i reckon the only person trying to psych out our players was Chris Tott who had a face on him like a baboons arse
