I knew when I saw the cup presentation after the parade on the Friday that we were in their heads the way Cotch wouldn’t let go of the cup until Tex did first. Had the game half won, then and there.
And then on game day when they were doing their cringeworthy power rangers stance. We walked away when they expected us to hang around until they finished their “ intimidation” of us. The looks on their faces as they wondered what to do next was priceless

Have a relative (Tigers fan) that lives in SA, he came over for the GF that yr & on the way there he was saying that with the SA media all week, any interview they did it was like they'd won the Flag.

They thought they won it when the siren went against Geelong.
They celebrated like it

Makes it even sweeter don't it :ROFLMAO:.

Dont worry, apart from the Tiger Army no other fans were celebrating harder in Austraila that day than the Kochies Hoardes !!

We gave them a present by proxy as well that day, some were even pledging to buy a RFC Membership in 2018 for the joy that we provided them, now they hate us even more than Crows fans after 2020 Prellim , when we received some level of forgiveness from Crows Fans.

For our SA based Crows and Kochies fans the old saying "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" rings true

Just like the 2018 granny for us. I despise west coast, but the last few minutes of that game were a thing of beauty.

And for some unknown reason the Eagles fans have a serious hatred for the RFC .. Go figure.

If it wasn't for the RFC shittting the bed they probably wouldn't have the 2018 flag.

I’m not sure why, but I think they blame us for them imploding in 2019.

$43m loss by AFL in last season ($66m for last 2 years) but Gill and his cohorts still get $1m per season.....hmm.

I wonder if Gil uses this $43m loss as an excuse to delay a new Tassie team even longer.

..... it comes back with *smile* Sucker
Bloody pathetic effort in the Hun today. Ran an article about Stackey's back flip n even went on to quote the comment bagging him. As per standard procedures for the meedjia slime, it was an unnamed and protected commentator who made the derogatory comment.

All good fun reputation building as hard hitting, insightful reporters, commentators n plenty of money to be made nit picking n deriding players when they aren't perfect. Make sure they cover n protect their own when they're just dribbling *smile* though.

A total of $9.8 million was paid to the 8 AFL executives in 2021, up from $7 million in 2020, it's a wonder Gill could keep a straight face today.
