I'm on my 6th watch of the second half, TS. The tigers play a little bit of football this time of year, don't they?

sweet as a nut! I've been slack, only 3. Long way to go, but the bookies winding us in reflects the statement we made with that win. That win said we can win it.

Ha! I closed my business due to Gypsy Jr xx and COVID so I put my money on Geelong at double figures of all things. I was hard up and went where the market edge was.*yuck* May my bet burn in the fiery depths of hell and the tigers prevail yet again.

We sure do.
The lead up to the last goal that Dusty kicked was a thing of beauty. I can't quite remember the sequence, but jumping Jack was involved in a give and go of sorts with.... I can't quite remember now, I think it was Jack to Rioli who tapped it back to Jack who handballed to Lambert, Lambert to Aarts, Aarts to Rioli, Rioli to Bolton, Bolton back to Rioli and Rioli to Dusty in the square, it was sensational.

George has just perfectly executed a right foot snap to goal to take the scores to 50-33 with the clock stopped at 9:08 plus time on remaining in Q3.

Nankervis loses the centre bounce tap to Bailey Williams but follows up and hunts Dom Sheed with a winning mixture of tenacity and athleticism. (The latter of which is cause for optimism; Nank might yet hit peak form in the 2020 campaign.)

Sheed watches on incredulously as the ball spills and Thomson Dow’s timely arrival initiates a chain of vintage Richmond ball movement. Castagna and Bolton link in the corridor at incredible velocity. The ball seems to go to the teeth of the tiger goal in an instant. Synapse speed. Soldo is playing full forward. He has the ascendancy and draws a free kick but won the ball anyway. He goals. Vintage Richmond ball movement always results in a goal but this was a combination of heroes not seen in 2017 or 2019.

Dimma isn’t being kind when he keeps both rucks on the field. And he doesn’t waiver at the next bounce. Instead, he arrogantly swaps the magnets. Soldo ruck. Now Nankervis goes to full forward.

NicNat comes back on to stop the rot. And things do go a little better at the centre bounce for the Eagles with their talisman returning to the field. But there is too much heat on the clearance, so the eagles move forward in stuttering increments.

The most influential efforts on this West Coast play are Richmond’s. Bachar smothers. Baker tackles. Marlion mauls and wings Ah-Chee in the Eagle’s pocket. Baw-wull. Free kick.

Unsatisfied with imperiously repelling West Coast’s best attacking effort, Marlion looks further a field and pinpoints Dustin Martin on half back who marks and swivels. Bombs high to half forward. Barrass flies high at a spoil but that makes things worse. Aarts prowls then pounces on the crumb. Graham menaces on the outside and surges forward to receive. He draws an undisciplined free from Barrass, who takes a cheap shot in clear frustration at the lack of support at the fall. Graham gets a clear kick off to the new full forward Toby Nankervis before being decked, and Nank receives a down field free kick on a tight angle. On the left footer’s side. He goals.

Full forward is a cushy job at Richmond. Just ask the ruckmen. But this period of play was all Dimma laying down the law to one of the game’s premier tacticians in Adam Simpson.

Mr Magnanimous has been a little bit less so of late. And against West Coast he didn’t let the football do the talking. He deliberately involved himself to brag in front of a serious rival. And at the stroke of three quarter time, the cameras cut to a close up with Adam Simpson with his head in his hands.
Thats Dimma's way o saying hey Simmo i have the remote and we are watching my channel

Loved the read Gypsy. As I was going through it, I couldn't help but think that the current crop of so called journalists could do with a lesson from you.
It'd make Alf Brown proud!

If you need a break from the finals, I highly recommend watching this game again. Very intense from start to finish. Worthy of a final. That's two years in a row that we have played an absolute cracker against West Coast.

According to them it doesn’t count, because we didn’t play them in WA. I so want to beat them over there this year.

We smashed them at a neutral venue!
My conclusion: West Coast supporters are the biggest bed wetters you can find.

Totally. They whinged themselves right out of it last year. So funny when the Pies kicked them out of the finals in WA.

I'd love to beat them over there, but it's a tough ask in a home and away game. More likely in finals when the umpires a under more scrutiny.

Even funnier when the Skunks forgot to turn up against the Cats the following week.

They were that insipid they earned the BRAVE tag.

Yeah, weird. They were red hot favourites after trading away their draft picks for Kelly.
