Driving down the seaside town I live in today (maybe a city soon unfortunately) taking Dusty (dog) for a run on the sand, I spot a Gentleman with a stunning Wife and 3 lovely children (my Mum loves his kids, always dressed beautifully) on the footpath. Yes it is the great man himself, Trent Cotchin, I look in awe, will I stop and ask for photos and autographs, like my friends and I did after seeing Angus and Malcolm Young during the Ballbreaker tour. No I don't, I walk along the beach thinking this triple premiership captain can have time with his family. I hope he enjoys it here, he has earned it.

that's interesting 74, because Pat Benatar and Van Halen aren't Aussie Musos ..
Fair point... as I said, didn't hear it myself, and thought that's how it was explained. ... I'm putting it down to post grand final over celebration fatigue!

Looking for insights, watching the game again from different vantage points. My dog supports me in all my
Feel like a cross between a spoilt toddler and a grumpy old man who cant get his head around the fact the world has changed.



But with each watch of the replay, I get more and more angry at the cheesy disco toonz and dancing after goals.


The tiger Roar after a goal is one of the best feelings their is. To replace that with canned noise like a shity poxy soul less 20/20 game is an insult to our great game.




Anyone who argues that the grand final should be at any stadium with less than 100,000 should be laughed at. Atmosphere is what Footy is all about. TV doesn't capture it. 30,000 for a GF is just not good enough. WA and SA can GNGF as well. no debate till they get real stadiums for real sized crowd's.









No PA after a goal ever! Never EVER EVER again!
I don't mind a tune. Only issue I have with it is I'd spill more of my beer getting into the groove.

Very wet day in Perth yesterday so around 4pm switched on the telly to Fox & here is a replay of the GF. As it ran I took particular interest to see if Rioli jibbed it (ducked his head) as one on PRE said he did on a few occasions. First instance on this call was when Rioli had the ball he looked at the opposition went to evade them slipped tackled free kick against him. Second instance a quick kick came towards him he is basically static ,ball is above him & a tall Cat player comes from behind clears the ball. Both times Rioli did not duck the head so who ever penned that he did suggest you watch a GF replay.

Dunno about the anti-music rants. I felt like dancing after every single Tigers goal. Especially those in the Third. Most especially Dusty’s 4.

Don't need no music when Dusty's on song. Just dance to Tigerland that's buzzin through my head.

The thing I noticed most about our comeback in The 3rd quarter was Shai, tackling machine and seemed everywhere.

In depth interview phhhht in today's Hun with little Gazza. Where did they lose the grand final against the Tiges. They played safe footy, didn't take the game on. :rotfl1 :rotfl1 :rotfl1
They've been playing the same risk free controlled keeping off game for years. Works well for a good side over a long period of home and away games against a lot of mediocre sides where long term accumulation serves well enough.
Doesn't work so well when it's a balls out kill or be killed finals game against a side that plays this type of footy all year long.

Seen the replay quite a few times.
Seeing Byron Pickett's downcast looks when presenting Norm to Dusty was gold.
He tried to cover it with the briefest of brief smiles but quickly returned to the horror.
What's with the long face?
His face was longer than Makybe Diva's!
Answer: The horror of Richmond.

Yeah don’t think he had gotten over what he witnessed in Adelaide the week before.

I just watched the 2017 qual against the Cats - great game, almost as good as the 2019 prelim which is almost as good as this years granny.

Don‘t you love the cats - to end their season 2 years in a row - now we talkin.

That 2017 qual is one of my all time favourites because it commenced our run of 10 : 2 finals win /loss and 3 fags.

Truly great game, you could see the pressure game being implemented by Richmond and it was so good to watch.

That was the game where I knew we had arrived and could challenge for the flag. We strangled them for the first half, didn't get enough scoreboard pressure, Geelong came back and levelled the scores. This was the point where you knew we would find out if Richmond were the real deal. We had thrown everything at them and they had come back and levelled the scores, would we fall apart or would we find another effort to win the game? The rest is history . . .

They were all over us during the second, you could see them queuing up to get involved in a way they don't usually do. Think they got a bit carried away which led to us regaining some momentum + Dusty's goal just before the break. Ablett said they went too negative after half time and went into their shells, which allowed us to press.

We got in their heads and they caved.
