    Tigers looking good with Lynch and Riewoldt. Stars coming back and slowly into form and a great run home with every game at the G.

    😎



  • Tigers will be top 4 and from there very hard to stop making the GF considering the other 3 teams play elsewhere



  • We’ll see,

    Lots of water to pass under the bridge yet.

    Worth mentioning, West coast Geelong and Collingwood have recent history of playing the g pretty well



  • Can't rely on Melbourne for fucking anything

    Also Clarko is the only coach on Fages' level at the moment...



  • Sack ya coach and you are guaranteed a win....



  • so, we are still 2nd. on the ladder. and not because it's before round 1 and it is still showing alphabetically.

    And we were the recipients of a free kick so soft that the AFL released a "we got it wrong" statement. Glory days.

    Richmond v Collingwood this weekend is massive. Winner is 4th.

    I reckon only Adelaide from the 8 are looking over their shoulder.

    Adelaide screwed the pooch on Friday

    they've been doing that a lot lately

    And suddenly playing Carlton isn't the gimme two points it has been for years either.



  • Realy happy for the Bombers and Worsfold, hoping they can consolidate their top 8 position and have a good finals series

    fuck those drug cheats. I am really unimpressed with the way the media, Ch7 especially, are building their redemption narrative.

    Also the bomber Thompson dramas in his private life are getting a little swept under the carpet.
    We all make mistakes in life , but it does expose him as being a dodgy bastard.

    And no one dares to go there, but bomber and dank were working at Geelong during that glory period, you do wonder what went on there

    Pretty much probably what happened at the Eagles

    There is more association with performance enhancing in the AFL than people can imagine. I went to a talk from an AFL Assistant Coach a few years ago who touched on the Essendon situation but also mentioned that if AFL coaches suspended all players associated with drugs of any kind then most would be struggling to pick a team each week

    It certainly puts the three strikes policy into perspective.



  • Taking a holiday to Tasmania next month and having a few days in Melbourne on the way home, so thought I'd take in an AFL game on the Saturday. Since there's a game at the G, I thought I'd go. I mean, how bad can a game between 14th-placed St Kilda & 16th-placed Carlton be?

    What? "Very bad", you said? Oh well.

    It would still be cool to go to as you will get to see how feral those crowds really are.

    I remember my first ever live football match in England. Millwall v Ipswich. Eye opening to say the least and I loved it!



  • @Smudge probably still a reasonable crowd.

    Been to two AFL matches.

    Richmond v Essendon back in 2001 at the G. (Last round of regular season, 4th v 1st, Essendon defending champs and eventual runners up when beaten by Brisbane in the first of their 3 championships, Richmond won unexpectedly, big crowd, about 80,000.)

    And Port v Somebody at Footy Park in Adl in about 2009. (Port won, can't remember much else, but Rodin played well.)

    Much preferred the live experience to watching on tele. You could see what they they were trying to do, who they were kicking to, especially from high up in the G.

    Didn't find the too feral.

    Should be a decent game with quite a few sub-plots. Both teams have sacked their coaches during the season. Saints interim head coach is a former head coach of the Blues that was sacked whilst still having a decent record. Blues have been far more competitive since sacking their coach.

    Both teams have players that are playing for their futures.

    Good fan base so will draw a crowd.



  • Almost the biggest game of the regular season tonight, Richmond v Collingwood. Both teams eyeing off finishing in the top 4. While a loss for either is not terminal, it has the finals-type "statement" game about it.

    Richmond are on the up, and have a lot of people tipping them for the GF now. Collingwood have the wobbles.

    Crowd should be massive as well, should make for good TV



  • Media are a bunch of bandwagoners,

    Worth noting Collingwood have won 2 in a row against the tigers and stopped their all time record of consecutive wins at the g, burst their bubble and have been their recent bogey team in the process.

    This game is harder to pick than many think, massive for Richmond , I would go as far as saying, season ( premiership possibilities) on the line . I don’t think they recover from another humiliating loss to them .

    No! really? pffft whatever...
