Lucifer's Hero

Finals Week 2 - Non MFC Game

Recommended Posts

Shame the Tigers aren't playing this weekend.  Injury concerns: 

  • Dusty has a corked thigh from last week. 
  • Rioli sent off for scans after hurting his finger at training. 
  • Lambert left training early and limped off.

They all seem fairly minor and will be ok for their Prelim.  Damn it!  They have been blessed with injuries to first and second string players.  Surely, lady luck needs to go elsewhere now.  She has helped the Tigers enough!

Back to this week:  GWS vs Coll.

Would prefer GWS to beat our arch enemy and I reckon they have a better chance of knocking off the Tigers in their Prelim!

Looks like nothing much there. They are cautious and rightfully so with a week off.

Think Pies will put up a fight as they did last week but eventually will get run over.

Returning the favour and going to the footy tomorrow night with my husband. As much as I despise GWS, it’s in my genetic material to dislike Collingwood and I am not sure that I will be able to utter the words ‘Go Pies’ regardless.

Big dilemma....

The idea of a Melbourne vs Filth grand final is delicious, but I think Id just rather see them go out in straight sets like the Hawks.

A final 4 without Geelong, Hawthorn , Sydney ad Collingwood is the perfect outcome.

The Richmond club doctor, their medical and rehab team are the best thing going around in the AFL since sliced bread. Nothing to see there.

Changing of the guard time:  :...for the first time since 2002 next week's preliminary finals will be played without either Hawthorn, Geelong or the Sydney Swans participating".

Isn't that a bl00dy good thing!!

Time for the young pups to take over!  Like us, yeah!

For all the heartache we have been through to have had a successful rebuild and be in the position we are now to take on the newcomers is awesome.

I have a funny feeling the giants will beat both the pies and the tigers. 

Wow, patches, that would throw a spanner or two.

I would love this. In finals over the years we have won 19 out of 20 times against Collingwood.

Is the 20th, the 1958 Grand Final, when they stopped us winning 5 flags in a row?  Sam's grandad, Murray Weideman was their captain and kicked the winning goal.  Our 1964 Premiership players are still filthy about missing that flag.

Then we beat them in the our last flag in 1964.

With that rich history and young Sam Weideman in our team there would be much symbolism if the old rivalry was relit in a GF of Dees vs Pies -   Would love to beat them again.

yeah.. but at least you'd get  a cheap ticket and in a perverse way if we can't be there I kind of like that match up
