Probably the least excited I’ve been for a grand final. Very weak season and whoever is the eventual premier will be remembered as a weak premier alongside the Bulldogs 2016. 

I agree with the sentiment, and that’s not really how it works in reality, is it?

Anyway, tin foil hat time ,- I sat with 5 people last night, 1 Collingwood - 1 Freo and 2 Geelong supporters, and another Dees supporters, who all felt the game was umpired with a strong bias towards confecting to a particular outcome. 3 in particular had never previously harboured a sense that the AFL attempts to manipulate outcomes - although all agreed they do it off the field, be it tribunals, or Essendon, or the umpire that was charged with betting, or HR issues, or… They were gobsmacked about the first quarter and a bit.. about the non calls being made, and even the Collingwood supporter could reflect enough (female!) that GWS did not get the ‘rub; in the final quarter the night before.

Anyway - your comment got  me thinking about the Dogs - and how simultaneously in EPL there was also the fairytale story of Leicester in the same year… HOW Convenient! and then the Dees, winning in an already compromised (financially) Covid year… yep - I think I’ve gone off the deep end

I'd have happily accepted a "weak" flag this year. it would go well with our 2021 "flash in the pan" flag. 

Maybe next year we'll have better luck. A "lucky" flag perhaps. I'd take that as well.

I predict that the talking point after the game will be a debate about bringing in red cards.

I dont care if any Toothless feral players get taken to the cleaners!

bears better win

BUT

quite frankly, i think both sides 'need' to win

bears have been up and about for a solid five seasons now and this is their first genuine chance of winning a premiership in that time

the filth, on the other hand, i just don't see as playing a 'sustainable' brand of football

Unfortunately there will be a winner out of Lions and Pies.  Hate Zorko. Hate Maynard.  Unfortunately one of these grubs will get a premiership.  
 

Fortunately there will be a loser.  🤣🤣 Pies lose. Wasted year after finishing on top. Colliwobbles. 
Lions lose. Perhaps their last chance. Would be the MCG Hoodoo !!!

Can anyone recall a Grand Final where it was twenty-seven degrees?

In 1987, the temperature reached 30 degrees.  Michael Tuck wore a short-sleeved jumper!

It was the week after Melbourne lost that awful Prelim Final to Hawthorn (the Jimmy Stynes incident).

Same thing SWYL, to not have that feeling that at least one team deserved to be there. 

By the way Collingwood not there next year will mean of course that Carlton will, as pre determined by the AFL cheats.

Anyone happen to notice that the two tacklers in the GWS game both involved unfair tackles by the Daicos mob.

Were they singled out to be given special "carte blanche" in their tackles, and they wouldn't be reported?

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
