Win it without Dusty & it would easily be our greatest ever Premiership.
Agree with others that there's no sides that really look unbeatable.
Except Leppa, Leppa called him a coaching genius & he sat alongside him for what 150 games ?I've been thinking about this a bit in the past few days.
There's a Neale Daniher speech that instantly became a bit of a mantra for me and with a few challenges in my life at the moment I find myself drawing on it more than ever.
Why not us?
I don't think we'd have won a premiership without Dustin. Honest opinion, but in a sense incredibly disrespectful of the rest of the players. Now there's a chance to win the most difficult of premierships, in the most difficult of ways, without him. Why not us?
I don't think our coach is a great coach, in the match day sense. He's a relationships man, not a footy man. That's also incredibly disrespectful and likely unfair but I don't see the footy world calling him a master coach too often. If he leads this side to a flag in these circumstances though? Master. Coach. Why not us?
There's always opportunity, if you look for it.
Bingo! we'll find out tomorrow. As for the "contenders" i am not convinced any of them have a "big boy month" in them, which is what it will take to win the flag. If we can keep building we are in with a chance.Exactly, it feels like we’re starting again. No one rates us.
I wonder if the players can find a spark from this?
