Devour everything I can read, watch or go to in regard to the AFL, not interested in any other sports really. Have attended a dozen or so grand finals in my life, none of which I have had to pay to get in. (Work that out yourself). Collingwood tragic and member. Will never, ever get over losing the following Grand Finals - 77, 79, 81, 2002, 2011, 2018...1980 and 2003 we were never in it. Watching the Pies win 2010 with my boys was one of the greatest days in my life.

We need a key forward Neil. Cameron would be nice! We didn’t handle the wet at all. The wet allowed them to stifle our run and quick handball game and nullify Treloar, Sidebottom, Phillips and co. Next year seems a long way away and there will be new challengers rising up no doubt. Tigers have them covered in the dry and you had about 4 rainy games in a row late season so just cannot see it even being close. Enjoy the week and your second cup in three years. I’m signing off for 2019 as won’t be watching next week. Good luck to you. They are a classy side the Tigers on and off the field.

Eddie McGuire left with mixed emotions

It’s not going to be a wet, rainy slippery game like that Jon boy. Look how our running game got going in the last when it cleared. The wet slog killed us.

Thanks Boo. Pies Cats next year

Good luck Neil, we missed the epic Pies Tigers GF after all, you and Slane are a couple of Tiger fans who rise above the rest in here in class. I think you would have had us well covered as we are struggling to score. As you say, you never know but IMO it was the wet that suited GWS. If it’s a dry GF, it could be a 1980 type margin. I mentioned during the year Tigers might be like the Cats of 2007, 2009, 2011 and win three in a few years. You are well placed. Enjoy the week.

Five talking points from Collingwood Magpies vs GWS Giants AFL preliminary final

Danny follows who?carlton? Melbourne?

Terrance, I hear you have been admitted to Mensa? How fortunate for you

Congratulations Richie. Two flags in three years and join the Pies, crows, kangas, dons and swans with two in the afl era. If it’s dry Richmond by ten plus goals next week maybe fifteen

You disappeared around the time of the eagles loss to hawthorn 6 x 6 and come back some time after the cats kicked you out to have a crack at the Cats and Pies? That’s weak.

So exceptional most had Grundy in the top 5 players.

Not worth watching the GF GGG . Tigers by 65

Pathetic Jon Boy? How’s Freo going mate? 20 + years and….? Wonder how we would go with Langdon, Beams, Cox, Greenwood and a bloke called De Goey? Perhaps concentrate on your own side and why players are leaving.

A comment from Kane who follows the Blues. Enough said.

TTF. I could have hammered you after last years preliminary but didn’t, saying only I was humbled to be in the grand final and you were a great side who would be back. You however have only shown your lack of the same class tonight. Shame to see, shame for this insight into your empty soul. Enjoy your flag. GWS won’t get within ten goals if it’s dry,

And another rare classy comment in here by Jason which only embarrasses the nuffies.

Who had the wobbles? The side 33 points up who stopped completely or the side who’d kicked three goals early in the last and trailed by 6?

And there is one of the only intelligent comments in here by Spruce.

Giant result: GWS into grand final after beating Collingwood in a preliminary final thriller

Interesting? Not worth watching. Hand the Tigers the cup now.

And who do you follow Einstein?

Giant result: GWS into grand final after beating Collingwood in a preliminary final thriller

A choke when you come from 33 points down in the last qtr after kicking 3 goals all game? Goose of the week comment

Thanks Rich, hopefully see you next week

Just how we like it

Roughead will match up well on big Tom should we make it through. Both big, both pretty slow, both not great on the ground.

Lynch no liability for Tigers

Thanks Doc, who do you want to win out of the three sides left?

Five alive! Lynch's finals bag wins prelim for Tigers

6th talking point, you don’t want to ever finish on top in this competition. Top position seldom wins for some reason.

Five talking points from Richmond vs Geelong

Optimistic, not over confident, but as Paul D said, Pies tend to make grannies and lose them, rather than bow out in preliminaries. I think we will win by 18 points setting up another Richmond Collingwood GF.
