We’ve got a ticket to the big dance but we’re still arguing about which frock to wear.

35 years. How good is it to be a Tiger at the moment.

Re: The 2017 Grand Final thread

Amazing to think we were playing like busted arseholes in round 23 last year, the AFL took Friday night games of us and we still managed to overcome all of that.

Kudos to the club for their recruiting on field and off to bring this about and with the VFL side in the GF tomorrow as well! :clap

I reckon there might be a few supporters still suffering in the crowd at Etihad tomorrow :hihi

Re: The 2017 Grand Final thread

An amazing stat. For only the second time in vfl/ afl history, no player playing in the grand final has played in a gf before. The first being the very first one in 1897 :eek:

How's that Tigers supporter feeling who took 2 multis earlier in the year for Richmond the win the flag, Storm to win the GF and Dusty to win the Brownlow - only to cash out about 10 weeks ago. He'd be feeling sick :p

Re: The 2017 Grand Final thread

What’s been the biggest regular season loss between grand finalists that’s been turned? We lost to crows by 70odd pts this year. Would we be breaking a record by beating them

I don't know if this is the actual answer to your question but i know Sydney beat North Melbourne by about 80 points in the 1996 home and away season

Re: The 2017 AFL Grand Final thread

In my wildest dreams from 12 months a go I would never have thought that if George an Butler were playing as permanent forwards or we only had one ruck, one key forward , a kid picked at pick 53, Broady, Towner, no Lids and he we are in the 2017 grand final

While we will get plenty of media attention,

The crows will go in as strong favourites, perfect ,

Let's go tigers , we can beat anyone on the G
