I've only seen about 6 Tigers games live in my life unfortunately (geez - that averages out to one every 7 years - where's the time gone?)

Worst of that bunch has to be last years FTF game vs Carlton. So disappointing, we didn't fire a shot.

A couple of other ordinary ones were when we laid down in games we should have given our all for. One was the inaugural Dyer/Richards Cup. We didn't fly the flag too well for Jack. The other was our game against the Hawks? after Jack died. Sometimes I just hope they'll give that bit more and it's disappointing when they don't give a whimper.

Definately the 82 Grand Final not only because we lost to the scum but also because my favourite player Bruce Tempany had his arm broken by that undesirable wayne Johnston

I reckon it was McConville who broke Tempany's arm not Johnston.

It was against the Hawks and I was shocked we lost. Tom Hafey spoke to the boys before they ran out, and really, we should have won it.

I thought at the time we must have been overawed.

Perhaps a bit like the Jim Stynes death before Melbourne played Brisbane this year.

Another stinker against Hawthorn I remember was in late 1998 playing them at VFL Park. They were on the bottom of the ladder and we were in the 8. A win would have almost secured a finals birth.

They smashed us and we only kicked 4 or 5 goals. I distinctly remember Daniel Harford doing an aeroplane after he kicked a goal. Of course, we missed the finals by %% that year.

I thought it was Port Adelaide, and Port didn't sing their song after the game or something. I cried at the start of the game because they had a tribute and the banner read something like...

Heaven can take the field 'cause their Captain has arrived

Yeah I reckon he may have died on say the Friday night before a Saturday game against the Hawks.

But I do remember the banner was at the dome before the Power beat us the week after

Games vs. Port was the 24th of August, Dyer died on the 23rd of August. The game vs. the Hawks was the next weekend at the 'G.

Unless the AFL tables site is incorrect?

It's correct. The club needed one week to prepare for the best way to say goodbye on our home ground.

Also a game against Melbourne, we could lose by 37 pts and still get in the finals... yep lost by more ! forget the year

Yep I remember that one. Farmer stood on Lyon and Turners head in the opening minutes and marked a classic and you just knew from the start it was not going to be our day.

I have to admit seeing that mark live was pretty impressive. It never looked as good on the replays but he was high.

Obviously fresh in the mind but the weekend's game was one of the worst I've been to. Didn't help that we lost
I'd rate it as our fourth-worst loss under Dimma, after Gold Coast x 2 and the 100-point loss to Carlton on the day we launched the Fighting Tiger Fund.
