We play a brutal game of 4 quarter consistent pressure. Nothing beautiful about us ....well except for the three premiership cups on display

Not just the GF, but the 2017 Quali and 2019 Prelim. Each and evry one of those games it's written all over their faces!
It’s the shock that we are now beating them.
Throwing their best punches yet we absorb them and come back and they fold.
Before they would beat up on us and they still ( coach included ) keep living in the past with us instead of TRULY believing we are the CHAMP now.

Did anyone else see those plonkers Morris, Ralph, King and Montagna on that Trading Day show on Fox Footy? Wow not even half a brain between the four of them. King and Montagna were that invested in Geelong winning the flag this year they obviously still can’t believe they lost. They are talking like recruiting 2 x 32 year olds and a 28 year old Cameron has them past the post already for the 2021 flag.

Ralph Malph reckons Carlton are absolute geniuses for paying Hack Williams $900k per year and Saad $700k plus per year. Apparently no team has ever done better deals than this.

Morris is a total dork that thinks he is smarter than everyone else. He spoke to an employment lawyer and he thinks that Treloar will be able to sue Collingwood under the anti discrimination act of 1984!! Ha ha what a *smile* he is.

Rampant stupidity from the lot of them.

Yeh, surely King should have lost any claim to expert status (never had it IMO) by now? He's almost always wrong with any prediction. Every bandwagon he gets on instantly derails. I just hope he doesn't endorse us at any stage in 2021.

They’re largely the same group of ‘experts’ (few name changes, but it’s like a revolving door of idiots) that handed the 2017 flag to GWS before a ball had been bounced.

He won’t. He’s still carrying a grudge from us getting rid of hm as an assistant all those years ago. Gee Wallace surrounded himself with some ‘talent’, didn’t he?

Well i reckon its half right, i reckon the cats did play the best footy...but and here is the BIG but, the Tiges don't let you play " the best" footy for long enough, and ALL teams just can't keep it up against the Tiges

This is the key.

I wasn't at the Grand Final but I was at the 2019 PF. Geelong set up in such a way as to stop Richmond playing the game on our terms. Richmond are able to alter the way we play and set up, but also to increase the pressure level, to nullify that. If Geelong sort out how to stop Richmond flicking the switch and changing the way the game is being played, or have an alternate plan to cater for Richmond's upping the ante, then they are a real chance to win. Chris Scott might have a fair number of unattractive traits, but an idiot he is not. I'm sure he has ideas but clearly has trouble having them implemented.

What Richmond supporters, and I'm sure the Team and Club are well aware of this, have to remember is just how close Geelong came to beating us both in this year's GF and last year's PF. Geelong do not have far to go to match us but we are now heading towards a new season, players leave, players are added, and both teams will adapt and change before the 2021 season. Geelong have lost Ablett and Taylor, but they look to be gaining Cameron and some others.

One saving grace for Richmond is that the leadership, coaches and captains, look to be well aware of the need to keep moving if they want to remain contenders. We are in a very good position with young players coming through and we have shown adaptability - from near the lowest clearance team we went to the highest in the finals. Herein lies the danger for opposition clubs, we are very adaptable.

Makes for an interesting next few seasons. It is also why Richmond need to keep adding flags because this cannot last and we will be challenged.

We will enjoy the ride while it last though :cupgold

Noticed that and it was pretty pathetic programming
Should have shown another replay of the GF - that’s been down to only a handful of repeats per day

Isn't nice to have a powerful & outspoken club president.
This is 10 days that news broke Collingwood would have a fire sale to clear cap space due to very poor list management.
But the chief sports editor from the Hearld sun has disappeared.
This is the same editor that was first in when it came to us having a bad culture and our players were big heads.
But when it comes to slagging Collingwood, all quite on the western front.

That trade show on FoxFooty is like a long Monty Python sketch. One of the panellists floats are a wild hypothetical trade scenario that has no realistic chance of occurring yet a fellow panelist then claims a list manager from one of the clubs of the hypothetical trade is a genius list manager. Just bizarre.
