Looking back at 2020 remember really wanting to win the flag coz the media and commentators were piling on the anti richmond garbage the whole year.

It made it so much better.

I've been watching the best of series on the On Demand thing on the AFL site.

Just watched the one about thrilling finals.

It seems we played no thrilling finals between 2010 and 2019, we feature not at all.

Bit strange I would have thought. Now, the 2019 GF was hardly thrilling after about mid way through the second quarter, but we had some pretty good come from behind wins - 2019 PF springs to mind, as does the 2017 GF although by the 3rd quarter we were a fair way in front. I know we ended up winning the 2017 QF and PF by large margins but those games were thrilling for long periods.

I don't know, thought we might get a bit of a look in, maybe we just win finals by too much although that 2019 PF deserved a go.

Seems thier definition of "thriller" is a game that went to the final siren decided by 1 kick. As u say a lot of our Finals were close for a half or so before we ran all over the opposition.

Exactly, 1989 GF comes to mind, it was a terrible game except for the last 1/2 of the last 1/4 & its regarded as a classic
40 pts at 1/4 tme
37 pts at 1/2 time
36 pts at 3/4 time

I was at that game and apart from the 1980, 2017, 2019, and 2020 GFs, I think it was the best GF I've seen. Not just the score line and the Cats comeback, but Gablett's 9, the Derm/Yates clash, Dipper with broken ribs and punctured lung, the Gary Ayers mullet. Was a awesome GF IMHO.

That game is remembered for being as good as it was for it's brutality. As u say it wasn't a close game at all until the final minutes.

20210221_112754.jpg How many Coaches have 3 or more flags in the last 50 years of the game? Hafey, Sheedy, Jeans, Barrassi, Clarkson, Matthews, The Gesh

Only one thing stopped Geelong. Their shitty defence.

We win the flag and don't even command the front page of the Hearld sun 2021 Season review book
That's because our flag was just so last year. This year it's all about how J.C. n not the other son of God is going to lead the moggies to the salvation of their next flag.

Didn't Rohan's marriage woes lead to Hawkins punching the sh!t out of him and Geelong's grand final tilt being derailed? Maybe Robbo can give that one to Gerard to report on.
That one like normal it was swept under the carpet.
Coaches aren't (apprantly) allowed to have relationships with people within the club. But a player can.
Geelong are shiit
