Wafl is just a tad important, especially as that is part of the history of Australian rules football. The wafl gf is between 2 areas that share a border, something u thought would be appealing to rich and Coll supporters, obviously wrong.

Five ways Collingwood can topple the Tigers

Should be a belter and I do reckon it’ll come down to the last quarter, still can’t see Collingwood winning but do believe alot of pundits have the prelims in reverse and this is the one which will be close with the greatest scope for an upset (though I expect Richmond to do another last quarter special against Collingwood)

The case for Collingwood

They get coverage, both sites are connected to either Melbourne paper so you should notice age and sun articles. Do people still buy newspapers? Or listen to 6pr? Or even watch nightly News on commercial stations? (Sorry personally prefer SBS or ABC), what your missing is the comment is more one things like fox footy shows like on the coach, 7s talking footy or 9s footy confidential, include the commentary week to week on games whether 7 or fox and you may present a more rounded case.
If I have to here Bob Murphy in his pseudo intellect dramatic tones talk about Melbourne one more time with Caroline Wilson working the wrist under the table on him…..

Well that doesn’t reflect the majority I know, grew up with the winners, until the fox deal watched upto 7 FTA games a week. Only thing I hope is Viney doesn’t shove his fingers down someone’s throat like his dad did to Lewie, the moment I sadly realised Victorian darlings will always be treated differently, simple truths lost on MOST Victorians.

West Perth will be towelled, even cometti and Basil would agree.

You do realise that ordinary midfield contained who the Buckley and simmo thought where the best two players in the qualifying final in Yeo and redden and just for good measure sheed got 27possies, 15of them contested, 85%disposal efficiency and a goal. So if Darling is a spud, the midfield is ordinary you are a noodle, there is stirring then there is just being a numnut

Wce lost 91 to hawthorn by 53pt and we all know what happened when we made our next gf in 92.
Your blow out blah blah is well blah blah Al , no longer big Al I reckon blah blah Al suits better.

Pete if you go back you will see I always predict wce by forty+, need to be confident, if you’re not then you end up walking out with two minutes left against port and miss a all time great finish.

But if you check the data since the AFL change taking certain umpires out of wce games the data shows pretty well even free kick counts.
But still it isn’t enough?
I broke down the data that was produced and it effectively showed 1 extra free per quarter per game for wce, it was never the horrible bias some ie mark Robinson tried to make it out to be.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

We should both be confident as all supporters who team is in a preliminary should be but I’ll happily say wce fwd and defence are better so if we draw close to even midfield or get our precision switch play going off halfback it’s all over Red Rover.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Wow and no wafl, vfl, SANFL or AFL club has you on their radar for a senior coach position, I’m shocked. Thought you would get a succession plan job at hawthorn well before Mitchell.
Seriously amazing insight from a bloke who said they don’t watch any games in Perth involving wce, something that from reading your comments leads me to believe you don’t watch many wce games at all.
So insightful for someone who hardly watches them, so very insightful.

Nice you think Injecting your limited view has relevance, single white female scrap that you’re like Glen close in fatal attraction.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Yawn, you do realise I bored of you some time back don’t you? Cheers for seeking me out again but your going all single white female IAP

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Yeah I know that wasn’t me saying it, the implementation of only non wa umps came after the Essendon game.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Maybe but as a tigers fan you are equipped to realise umpiring or free ford won’t stop the better team winning.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Love the bit from vards saying simmo knows more about him as a player and person in 2yrs than the cats coaching staff in his entire time there.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Very well put mate, I’ve gotten very used to this sort of articles commentary over the last 31 years and doubt it will change. Same as the sudden outrage over airfare prices for Melbourne fans, this is something wce supporters have dealt with many times yet somehow now it’s an outrage.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Expect this to be the closer preliminary but Richmond will get the job done.

Five ways Collingwood can topple the Tigers

Can’t disagree and the flow on is suddenly boots finds himself freedom of not being tagged which seeing as he is our best run and carry and elite ball user I’ll be chuffed if he is free passing it lace out to darling, jk, Ryan, lecca, Cripps and Willie.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

It will either be extremely close or a +40 wce victory, personally I reckon a close 1st half then we’ll pull away. Reckon this is the more lopsided of the finals though I expect Richmond to win the other. Can’t wait. Dominant player and maybe future norm Smith winner will be Yeo, 36 possessions with 24 contested, his game against the pies has been the most dominant by a player this finals.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Fact is for such a dominant display Melbourne only got over wce in last 2 minutes of the Rd 22 match.
Fact at Subi last year it was decided in last 20 seconds so not really much to see there
For all of Melbourne’s dominance the only finals bound side they put to the sword was a gws team that had the cue firmly in the rack once they became happy with playing Sydney week one in the finals.
Fact Melbourne have only beaten Geelong and a beaten up Hawks so far, fact is that isn’t an amazing form line as even though outclassed both those sides remained well in the contest.
The scoring power your recalling really doesn’t reflect as Rd 22 was a massive 17pt, thrashing the easy beats has inflated this stat.
I accept what your stating re clearances etc but wce are prepared to concede and build from half back.
Fact is wce have the superior defence and fwd line with a good midfield. Melbourne can win all the ball they want but wce backline ability and dominant kpf will see them win.
Fact that ppl think umpires decide games is verging on laughable, look at the wce v Essendon match and tell me did the umpiring let the obviously better team win?

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

No one believes it is a case of just turning up, confidence is fact wce finished in second and Melbourne in 5th. Confidence is fact wce have never dropped a home preliminary. If supporters are confident well that’s what a supporter should be. If supporters are prepared to bring ppl to task for making uninformed statements regarding their side that isn’t mouthy that’s standing your ground something I’d hope any supporter of any team would do.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

Reasons wce will win, much was made of two key fwds missing but the little fact that gov was switched fwd to nil effect robbing wce of arguably with Hurn there most important positional player, reason being wce don’t form attacking thrusts from a need to win centre clearances, often they will be conceded but with alot of pressure applied forcing rushed kicks fwd to be intercepted, take McGovern out and wow it is an issue, put him back and Melbourne who have a ridiculous tendency to bomb it long with no direction will be exposed on the counter.
Much is being made of this Rd 22 match and the year before at Subi which combined where only 20 pts in favour to Melbourne which is a ridiculous premise to base part of the argument on though not as ridiculous as we would like to play someone else in the preliminary (take them when they come as they aren’t that regular), it would be like me saying as wce have beaten Richmond and Collingwood three times combined this year they’ll fear us in gf( ridiculous).
Wce have been in this position before and there isn’t the pressure on them that the notion of fairytale etc is putting on the dees so cheers Victoria.
Wce will win and will rightfully be the story of the year as we weren’t supposed to be any good this year and the egg on ppl faces have made them blind to the obvious.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

You jumped on a bandwagon don, it’s ok mate alot of people do that, usually the sort who jump ship.
