Apart from that first year when he had Bomber Thompson's team his finals record stinks, and gets worse every year.

Good H&A coach but put that down in part to Geelong's list management - they've done well replacing the stars of the previous era to stay super competitive.

But finals gamedays he just doesn't seem to have it, and in the end he'll be judged on that.

His good H&A record is in no small part due to the massively tax payer funded massive home ground advantage they enjoy. If they didn’t play 8 or 9 games at KP very year they'd be lucky to scrape into the finals.

It’s quite unfair how they are the only Victorian team to enjoy such an advantage.

And something that isn’t often mentioned; they’re the only team that get to regularly train on their home ground.

For some unknown reason the media tip toe around him.
Compare worsfold to him.
Worsfold is a real coach and gets slammed.
If they go out next week, they will be the first team since 93 to go out in straight sets after finishing on top.
Scott isn’t a good list builder and has a game plan that can’t stand up in September.
But is stubborn enough to deflect his flaws with bullshhitt like venues, mid season drafts, free agency, fixturing etc.
He has a deflecter Sheild and the media don’t penetrate it.

They may end up like Adelaide within the next 2 years. They may even implode if they go out in straight sets this year. Don’t think they’re a tight group and there’s too many egos there.

And because their game plan is based around that ground. There are Cats supporters that Dislike Scott because of that, his game plan gets them nowhere

Wonder if he’ll go in with a ruckman this time?

Worst premiership coach ever.

Yeah, no ruck against Grundy? WTF? Grundy is damaging enough against a decent ruck, you can't allow him a free ride. Insanity.

Unfortunately for Salty he doesn’t have a decent ruck. Stanley is a pussy.

Does he think Grundy was the difference?
Probably not. Probably didn't notice him rip his team a new one.

Here's a genuine query.... would McGovern be even more effective at gmhba as he'd have even less space to worry about as he goes about his intercept marks?

I have a new found love with the word "cobber" and "she'll be right cobber."

I've got a mate (Richmond supporter from Hobart) who reckons its a Victorian conspiracy and thinks its a joke Geelong doesn't get to host finals at alphabet stadium. weird.
