2015. And lost by less than 2 goals in 2017 – their premiership year and before Yeo made Martin his pet.

Five weeks 'til finals: Who are the flag favourites?

Maybe against an essendon side missing all their talls :p More likely week 1 isnt it. I wouldn’t say they’re a big chance. Form and confidence are powerful things though. Add a bit of luck on the day or their opponent underestimating them… shouldn’t be written off just yet.

Lets see if you feel the same way after round 22.

Five weeks 'til finals: Who are the flag favourites?

Woo. B2B for first time in club history awaits. If not the cup “made by the vics for the vics” will be leaving town again with a lions fairytale or a giants coming of age. I can hear the pretenders excuses already. tigers – we didnt have rance. cats – we had to play first final 80kms down the road. pies – if only cox could play his second good game.

Good stuff. Like slobbo said last night, everyone fears the premiers will get two home finals. Now those wise man from the east will lose sleep over nic nat playing finals.

Outside chance Nic Nat may return for finals

Five talking points from AFL Round 18

Giant’s best has been a lot better than anything Richmond have served up this year. Might change now they’ve started their special support fixture run.

Five talking points from AFL Round 18

Arguments could be made for Clayton Oliver and the Bont, certainly a few duds can be found for any pick number though. I think the Blues did the right thing, they got a player they liked.

The rule is diving on top of the ball or dragging it underneath the body, so the explanation the umpire gave wasn’t great. Did he make a genuine attempt to get rid of it?

Five talking points from AFL Round 18

Yes, I do agree with you. The home ground advantage is real. I’m just not sure how you can think weather and ground size is not part of that. Along with the crowd, the travel etc. I’m all for higher-seeded teams playing ALL finals at their home ground. It’s just too bad Chris Scott used up all his goodwill complaining about things far less important over the last decade.

Why are average scores relevant? Margins maybe, but still a stretch. You’ve obviously never watched a game played in Tasmania or at the SCG if you think weather and ground dimensions don’t have influence.

Prob get out to a 5 goal 1st qtr lead.

Pies go berserk after epic last-quarter comeback stuns the Eagles

Some times we need a challenge in the first half to stay switched on.

Only if they could have marked it. i undertsnd better now and think you are onto something though, changers in players mentality has a big effect on a game.

Footy is in a funk

Afl lite? Im trying to figure out how a spoil is an attacking ploy with different method?
It sounds like taking the away goal rule from soccer. Can learn to appreciate defensive tactics, it just takes more effort and there are less add breaks so people complain about the “state of the game” instead.

Both victims still recovering.

I meant there wouldn’t be enough tickets for everyone who wanted them. We don’t disagree.

Missed that one. Post a link.

Five talking points AFL Round 16

It is amazing how much of a GF is won in the battle between the ears and how clear it is when a player or a team is losing it. It would be good to see tigers or dogs get back there knowing they would be ready to go.

The GMHBA final integrity contradiction

Ticket availability would be an issue for some. I’d love to get to a game down in Geelong, a final would be the best of all. Did cats request to not play at the G again after round 18?

The GMHBA final integrity contradiction

I could live with that. Maybe yeo gets one after a norm smith. He already beats up on the past premier mids of the comp.
So Hurn, Shep, Cripps and Shuey it is.

The subs he made in both legs vs bielsa’s leeds were very good. His style reminds me of klopp at dortmund early on. And he had a few of the chelsea kids. No transfers remember. He wont be expected to compete for the league. No hazard remember. Expectations should and will be low and we wont have to watch sarri ball. Who was a better applicant i wonder
