    If only Roarke hadn't trimmed his mane he might have been in with a shot!

    I know we have no reason not to be confident, but I'm really interested to see how many of the ''experts'' pick us to win... just read an article on ESPN and we went 0-4 there.

    Apparently Melb have a much better defence than us even though across the season the average per game against is only 3 points in their advantage which is pretty much f-all. Understand without Bruce our advantage in the forward 1/2 is reduced, but we will be giving them a completely different look to what they have seen previously with none of Dunkley, Treloar, Martin & Wood having played against Melb this year.

    I think most 'experts' are just expecting Gawn to destroy what ever we put in front of him and steamroll us on way to victory.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Yep, and I think everyone is getting caught up in the hype of Melbourne rather than looking at the match up. It's almost as if they still think we're in a form slump.

    We're red hot and ready to go!

    The more pressure that's heaped on the Demons the better.

    We weren't favourites in all the games in 2016 from memory. 3/4 here I'm ok with that.
