Your not Post Malone in your thinking on Tigers. I am just pointing out an alternative view. One you would attach to any other team. Three premierships in four years does buy you some optimism.

At least you weren’t ninth: Richmond's 2021 in review

Don, that is actually a reasonable comment. But I would disagree on two fronts. I think both players are more damaging up forward. And it is not them who is inconsistent but the rest of the team. Also both are tagged by players of varying skills.

At least you weren’t ninth: Richmond's 2021 in review

Richmond went from first to twelfth. Nine wins for the year. Inglorious losses to Suns, Saints and Pies. And you say a pass. Their commenters are celebrating the D+. I would be livid.

Future looks dim. They have a team that are not particularly talented that blindly follow the team plan. But the average players are all triple premiership players demanding their rightful monetary reward either at Tigerland or elsewhere. There will be some flashes from Dusty and Riewoldt etc that will win some games but just enough to push for the eighth. I predict five years of eighth to ninth positioning. They need a new game plan, maybe a new coach and stop recruiting players with more neck tattoos than their IQ.

Now with Cats, you are probably just being insufferable. They met your exceptional prediction and yet fail. They where in exactly the same boat as the Tigers with the exception they have older players so that the late 2020 gf would have even greater affect. I am not sure how I would grade them. Maybe they need a D. But I am not giving them the Tiger’s injury and late 2020 excuse.

Two things.

Don’t rank your rank.

Where did you pick the Cats in 2021, 2020 et al.

At least you weren’t ninth: Richmond's 2021 in review

I am not commenting on that but you are being extremely inconsistent.

On your reasoning Cats would be at least a B+.

How about this, from a long way out with no fixed coaches and player list. Cats top four next year, Dons and Tigers fighting for the eighth position. Strap it in.

At least you weren’t ninth: Richmond's 2021 in review

That is an interesting take Chuck. So Geelong’s capitulation to Melbourne was due to the very late finish last year? If it was true, it would also explain Ports final too.

My view is their demise was due to other teams and new rules dating their game plan.

Just a spring chicken Don.

I can talk here away from the tiger trooolls. Hardwick is a one trick pony. His system is dead.

I will add Hinkley to the list. Probably the prize is Clarko.

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

I have been busy on other things lately, but you know I will give my two Bob’s.

You are good. You pull your blows too and like a good laugh.

For what it’s worth , I thing like Eagles, Cats and Tigers need a new coach.

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

Nico, I don’t know Kane and I think I pull my blows when it is dismal for other supporters. But the Bambi/ headlight is definitely mine (although maybe stolen in a recent headline.)

I don’t mind talking about my little kittens. But the carry on from some supporters of teams who didn’t even make the eight does not encourage an enjoyable interchange.

Thanks Peter. All on the line tonight.

That would be my wish.

I admire your confidence. I didn’t write you off. Their hearts alone may do it. But was your midfield fixed up by the Hawks then Port a few weeks ago? Do you have enough tall defenders? Enough tall forwards. Do you have a good ruckman?

Then again, do Port have a full back or centre half forward? Will Robbie Gray and the home crowd overcome the Bont?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

The missing full stop got me.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

Port looked the goods but are they consistent enough? I think the home ground will get them over the line.

I know you caught the Dees ski lift some time ago. I think the Cats have been scheming and planning this one for a while. It could be interesting.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

Nobody agrees with that. Hawkins, forearm to head no injury, deserved 50, play on. Selwood accidental high fend off, a la Dusty. No force, no injury, free, play on. Move on.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

Doc, is this a subtle joke? What about Oliver, Bont, Petracca and McCrae?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

I am worried about Biden representing Geelong. All the cracks about the oldest winner ever. But Trump performed magnificently and won the three quarter time score line. Just to be outperformed in the last. Then the range rovers will scream umpire fraud. Just like little Donny.

This an article there Pinkie. It would have to be a top twenty though. Milne right up there. Was Aka in the group? Johnson? Both Geelong and Doggies.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

Gone for Cats and Port. Purely from the heart. I think Bullies are winning mostly on their heart. So they might sneak a tight one or get belted. Cats I would have strapped them on if it wasn’t for the Port thumping.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

Oh no 😱

Have you tipped every finals loser?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

Actually only had one bad game, against the power. Good luck.

'I don't think Melbourne are quaking in their boots': Talking points from Geelong's semi-final rebound

No I’m with the rest, hoping for the best.

'I don't think Melbourne are quaking in their boots': Talking points from Geelong's semi-final rebound

I think they are in trouble. They needed to change the coach and the game plan. A team of double and triple premiership players. Their success based on a system that doesn’t work anymore, not player skills or brilliance. I see salary cap pressure and losing young players. They won’t make the eight in 2022.
