    Tough question. Which team is more dislikeable? Geelong or Richmond

    Hardwick v Scott, Cotchin v Selwood, Hawkins v Lynch, Dusty v Dangerfield, Reiwoldt v Rohan, Richmond fans v Geelong fans

    Hard to separate them. Split decision i reckon

    For me, there's some admiration for where Richmond have come from and what they've built over the past decade.

    Geelong just seem to get a free ride with home games, umpiring etc etc. They have an arrogant sook for a coach. I'll acknowledge their recruitment has been really good and they have rebuilt while staying competitive. Wouldn't be surprised if they're rigging the cap to do it though

    So the VIC government are paranoid about having crowds at games. And when they finally do allow crowds they put 3,500 people on each wing with absolutely no social distancing.

    Makes perfect sense.

    Get permission from the government and then save $ by only opening up small sections.

    They could just open up certain gates and bars but ffs let people spread out.

  3. It really still smacks of us not being mentally tough and switched on enough.

    We roll the tough teams and switch off and lose to the bad ones. The same can be said for our first quarter efforts being our weakest of most games.

    Makes it hard to predict. 

    Every good team still has a slump at some point.

    I reckon we'll drop the bombers game, the sky will fall here, and then we'll straighten up to finish third or fourth.

    We'll beat the cats at their home and I will love every second of it.

    Viney and BB need to get in and fire.

    If we can play every final at the MCG, we're still a good chance I reckon.

    I see this as one more skirmish in the AFL's war against the NRL. A new front has been opened regarding head trauma. The NRL don't quite know what to do about it, but they know it's affecting junior uptake of the sport.

    The AFL want the mums of the land to say "you're not playing rugby" and they further want them to say "but that AFL is okay ... they try to protect the head".

    As in all things, the AFL is inconsistent and erratic on this. That's why they can let certain pieces of thuggery go as "part of the game" and other things, clearly "in play" (eg the Geelong guy who got tackled fairly but landed on his head) get cited.

    All part of their big picture war on other codes.

    Don't forget soccer. It's probably an even bigger threat to afl

    Again the colongwood player walks over the mark but it’s not fifty. Roughead was at least a metre over and only called to stand. 

    Watched a few pies players grab the ball off us when it was our free as well just to slow it down. No 50

  6. I'm positive we're being lazy.
    I'm positive we're being outcoached
    I'm positive we'll probably lose this by a poor umpiring decision and a kick
    I'm positive this may be our mid year slump
    I'm positive we're much better than this
    Time to lift Dees .

    2 minute noodles smothered by craft singles with a refreshing lime green cordial made up in a 40/60 ratio.

    Black and Gold sausages cooked on a stolen bbq, white bowl busting bread, sauce and a couple of meth pipes before the game.

    Go pies!

    More like two old boxers slugging it out for that one last chance of glory

    The young ones are taking over... whether it will be us or Brisbane it won't be these two

    Richmond are gaining momentum over the last few weeks. I think they are our biggest threat this year. Finals experience is everything. We dont want them top four.

    Didn't Stewart go head first head down into the tackle?  Seriously one out of the Selwood textbook.


    Then Hawkins blocked / tackled the defender out of the Cameron mark??


    I think it's amazing how quickly Geelong players can recover after ducking into tackles and then flailing around on the ground until the free kick is paid.

    So courageous

    The look on Neale’s face when Gerard mentions premiership. Stirred up so many emotions in me!! Nearly burst into tears! What a legend!!

    What an incredible bloke. How good would it be to see Neale at the Granny when we lift the cup.

    Btw his biography is a great read too.

  11. I reckon we have to be a good chance to make the dance.

    Richmond are starting to hum and have that finals experience. They'll be the toughest to beat come finals I think.

    With the disruption to the VFL season, I'm wondering if the Burgess factor can help us again. There's a heap of players on the fringe that we may need (Jetta, Jones, Sparrow, Brown x2 etc etc) that we need to keep match fit.

    We have the best in the business to help keep them super fit. It may be a real edge for us come the pointy end.
    Go Dees!
