    Hopefully this was their only final for a good long while and happened when the sounds of their singing echoed in the empty streets of Melbourne.
    We have more private school kids in our team than they do.

    I think it is more the culture of the club and the type of supporters they have that permeates through there.

    please don't ruin a good stereotype OK
    All poor Bulldogs players grew up selling donuts to get by, with cold showers and extended their contracts for $.20cents

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    If the AFL was not so heavily invested in them, this would not have come to pass.

    Carlton's punishment for the Salary Cap Breaches was strong and had the impact it was meant to. It was a deterrent. The Bumbers punishment for the Drugs was softer, as they were allowed to partake in Free Agency still, which was wrong.

    Melb Punishment on the other hand for Tanking was an indictment that seems to have been deliberately cast aside by the pundits!

    As for Paul Roos, he was mean't to have taken over at Bris before being poached. Hence why Voss was let go, as they thought they had Roos.

    The tanking was all Dean Bailey and Chris Connolly's fault........Dublin's Jim didn't have any knowledge of it happening, even though he was chairman between 2008 and 2012. Just two rogue operators engaged in a devious plan. The AFL even said so.

    And they were so bad at it they still nearly screwed it up.

    Wasnt there a Jordan McMahon after the siren goal or something that gave them their wish.

    Yeah with that funny pic of Shane Valenti hugging celebrating Richmond players.

    Which triggered a totally normal and not at all pearl clutching Valenti's Mum to ring 3aw and complain about.

    You know what?

    To War!

    At first when we lost I was a bit conciliatory. We had the whole travel thing, year of covid, lots of issues, and I just didn't feel like being too down about it.
    But I want to feel fired up about 2022. 2022 is the year we go to war on Melbourne and every other club who tries to take it from us, in a Geelong circa three-peat mode.
    The first game we play with them I hope we beat them to a pulp.

    That is how Port beat Melbourne. A lot of Port's players just niggled and hit Gawn throughout their match. It seemed to exhaust him. I was hoping we would do it after Lachie Hunter commented on it before the GF.
