Not me...confident as. We are in their heads and match up well. Better lead in games as well.
Geelong at their best are a very good side. Us at our best are one of the great sides of all time.
If we bring our best, we win.

I agree about getting in their head. Last time we beat them Scott had no choice but to publically say how good we were. He seemed to be searching for answers. Until now he has always been stubbornly set in the ‘they’re not that good’ mould. It was only last night he’s brought out his painfully transparent reverse psychology of ‘try to get to their level’ foolery. He’s never done this before, which means he’s stooping to mind games. Funnily enough, I reckon now was the time to stick to the ‘our form is as good as anyone’s’ line, because they‘ve smashed the last 2 teams of witches hats.
Regardless of the real message he gives behind closed doors, their players would have to feel a little bit of ‘why do we need to try and psych them out’ even in the backs of their minds. They’ll also have a fear of failure to choke on if they’re hanging onto this ‘Dangerfield deserves this because he wears oversized shorts’ myth.

Both port and us made them look second rate recently.

Simon Black is doing it. We know that right?
He's the ambassador, not the person who presents the Cup. Unless that tradition been changed for this year as well.

Each club nominates someone to present the Cup. Richo 2017, Maureen Hafey 2019

Trout from Woodend? If anyone deserve to present the Cup, it's him. Catman to present it for the Cats if they win

Gold Coast (SE - QLD).
Last time we played them the game was talked up as being the best game for year but got labeled the worst game after we completely dominated everywhere expect on the scoreboard. Twice as many scoring shots.
We finished Geelong’s dominate 6 game winning streak.
We lost Lynch and Soldo in the match.
Rioli and Castanga were solid. Jack kicked 4.
We’ll be coming into this Grand Final stronger and our game plan has changed since then.
The omens with us are
We finished 3rd and beat Geelong in a final
It Worked for us in 2017 & 2019

Ash Barty best suggestion so far. An RFC #1 Ticket Holder and she celebrates a Richond goal with more emotion than when she won the French Open. While drinking a beer!

Best spend the week focusing the thoughts and energy in positive and constructive ways.
I'm a big believer in collective thought/focus and how it can shape things.
The more we dwell on a victorious outcome the more likely it is to happen.
Plus, as I have mentioned previously, it's much more fun to be a believer than it is to be a naysayer in the lead-in to the Big Dance.

Black is presenting cup.
Sauce? Can't find a link anywhere stating Black is presenting the Cup to the winners.

His taking it on tour and will bring it out before the start of the game, but awarding it to the winners is normally someone chosen by the winning club.
