On ABC radio yesterday that pointed to the fact that the tigers are easily the best finals team since the Hawks of the 80’s - that we finish 3rd and win three flags each time demonstrate that Hardwick is one of the best coaches ever - we don’t dominate seasons (like the cats and lions did during their dynasty periods),
Lions never finished on top in triple premiership years - 2/2/3
They won 17/17/14 games
Like the Hawks of 13/14/15 they managed to be peaking in finals. This is the real art of managing a season. Dimma publicly acknowledged he got it wrong in 2018 but has got it oh so right in the last 2 years.
