It's funny because nobody questions Hawthorn's 3 peat, but they fell over the line in a couple of Prelim finals and were even beaten in finals on the way to premiership glory. The only time we've looked vulnerable is after having a second bye in 3 weeks.

I will admit, that watching that Prelim against the Cats I wasn't feeling very confident at half time. I didn't think the cats looked that good, but we looked like we had more rust than a gate on a cow paddock. Some of the fumbles and missed kicks in the first half were deplorable. The manner in which we clicked into gear, triggered off by a typical Trent Cotchin tackle was unbelievable.

We then carried that second half form straight into the GF.
Yer i wasn't overly confident but was telling ppl they'd given us thier best, we have more upside & it's only 3 goals the diff.

I must confess after Dangerfield's free at the end of the second quaerer. I rang a mate and said "We're gone."

I did notice when watching the game over during the 1st half Stagerfield was giving lip to Dusty etc but this suddenly stopped when the heat went up & Stager disappeared from the game after his Olympic flop

Yep. Was funny as it gets. Dangerflog bagging Dusty all the first half coz Dusty got corked in the first couple of minutes n was struggling to run. By half time the Flog was in full struttin Prima Donna mode prancin, smirkin n givin lip to everyone. Unsighted second half n then has to do the puffed chest stare at the future darkness walk off the ground. Reckon he had the arse cheeks clenched that hard walking off he could have cracked walnuts.

Watched the 3rd Qtr of 2017 GF again over the weekend (it's amazing how obvious it was we were going to win by once George kicked his in the 3rd). Not sure how I've missed it but Captain Chimp puts in another massive tackle at the opening bounce that starts a chain of possessions for us. Crows would have been psyching themselves to come back hard after we choked the life out of them in the 2nd. Chimp's tackle just sent them back into their shells.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's personal KPI of his, making sure we win the first bounce after a break no matter what it takes.

It was such a critical moment in the context of the contest.
His battering of Mumford set the tone and sent out the message to all ... watch out for the Tigers.

Prestia's role in the tackle is understated. He jumped straight in and gave Mummy the ole forearm face rub as well. The boys let GWS know that if they wanted to play the man, we had their measure too

He really lifts the team when he does that stuff.

Love it when Skippa Chimp goes full savage mode.

I hopes Cats make finals. In 7 of our flags we've beaten them in finals on our way to the flag.
Hmm, but maybe not the GF: 1967 was wonderful (and is a fantastic game to watch, make sure you watch it all the way through, absolute ripper) but 1931 not so good.

I took it as us saying we were ready for battle after he'd spoken in he media about leaving bodies flying everywhere. They talked it up which gave us the heads up & we walked it thereafter. there has never been a bigger fizzer than "big big sound" tho i'll be sure to remind oppo fans of this when GWS beat thier team this yr.

After Danger executed his heroic dive and got 50 to boot, Dusty gave him a serve in the middle of the ground.

dunno what he said, but I like to think it was along the lines of ‘weak dog’ and ‘no one respects you’.

it was immediately apparent that it got under danger’s skin, and after that moment he was a non-factor in the game.

at the final siren he stood alone for a few minutes, seemingly in shock.

Yes it was one of the most appropriate, perfectly timed stance/sledges ive ever seen and it clearly rattled clangerfield.

Clanger had that very restricted smile on his face that you'de see when someone overstepped the mark with a tougher kid at school and they knew they could be humiliated, bleeding from their face in the blink of an eye and they wanted to cry and run, but managed a restricted smile.

Im watching the q final right now.

Cotchys physical game, as always when we need it, was inspired. He gave mitch robertson a dylan sheil in the 2nd which was critical in turning the game.

The home of Dusty
A nice bit of premiership swagger creeping in here.

What do we suggest Dustin said to Danger that reduced him to a quivering mess?

Called him a flog? A wanker? A cheat? Told him he has no mates? Perhaps he started a discussion on Ayn Rand's position on selfishness?

Think he was still recovering from that shepherd put on him by the smiling assassin:eyes
Unlike Ablett and Selwood who sought out the Richmond players and congratulated them, Dangerfield stood in the middle of the ground with the cameras on him waiting for the opposition to come to him. IT IS ALL ABOUT HIM,

Might've suggested he should have stayed with the Crow baits, at least that way he could've experienced what it was like to play in a Grannie.
