The 3-0-75 actually started as a five year plan for 3 finals, zero debt, and 75k members. Somehow the media have morphed it into 3 Premierships.

It’s just another attempt to have something to say we failed at, when in actual fact, we did it so easily, that it became irrelevant.

Now we’re going to smash the 3 Premierships in 10 years as well. God they must hate us.
Great planning.

Yeah think I prefer our ins to theirs. Apart from Soldo, we've both just lost fringe players, both running at pretty much full strength

Well, we're playing the Cats in the granny, quite frankly I think that's fantastic. What a fantastic effort by both clubs. Just think about it, both have been away from their homes for the vast part of the season, a lot them have been separated from their families for a long time.
Living in a "hub" must be a bit strange for a lot of them, but they've overcome it to reach the GF.
Both Port & Brisbane have bad a massive advantage & didn't take advantage of it.

It will be a fantastic GF & hopefully we'll prevail, either way I'm bl00dy proud of the mighty Tigers

The impression I remember was the no debt, 3 finals and 75k members as the bottom line and the 3 flags was the aspirational goal.

Not sure what the better prep is. A decent game and then a hard fought nail biter as prep for a Grand Final, or two casual strolls through a field of witches hats.

They are bound to be fresher, but we're probably more mentally prepared to hit hard early.

We do have the extra day, but also have to travel.

For us Vics, no ticket stress this year.
Replaced by how many Tiger mates can I watch it with. Was solo until 4 weeks ago. 1 for finals.
11.00? This morning Premier lets us know.

I thought this was our best result but it's always hard not to see winners as playing better than they did.

I feel like we have the edge in key areas, particularly speed and hardness and I think they will find scoring against us a real challenge.

As much as it isn't a popular opinion on this forum I feel like our two biggest hurdles to overcome are that they have a very good coach and a very good player who can produce a game that carries them a long way. If we neutralise those two factors then it is our flag.
Dangerfield will he finally play a good game against us, and not pillow.
Abblett will he kick straight when given the chance?
Hawkins gets to play us when it matters.
Our system is better, their top end is brilliant but we have pressured them out of the game.
Our player spread is better, and we should be able to cast doubt into their minds.
Emma Murray vs Leading Teams?
