The most prestigious title in sports entertainment

Who are the two teams that can beat Richmond on the MCG in a prelim or a grand final?

Sydney and.....Melbourne.

No, The Age Real Footy Podcast. We are literally 2-4 at the MCG this year including losing to Richmond by 7 goals, and have proven that our greatest weakness is Richmondís strength: being exposed by tackling pressure.

Based on yesterday I dont think we will be that far off once we get a few more players back. We aren't too bad at the moment but we sorely missed Menzel's polish and the experience of Henderson and Taylor.

Iíd certainly put you ahead of us. Hawthorn go ahead of us too just based on the fact that if anyoneís going to figure out a way to gently caress Richmond up its Clarkson, itís just whether he has the cattle to do it this year

He doesn't.
I think there's a healthy chance West Coast and Sydney can sneak past Richmond and force them to play away from the G for a couple of weeks which might be all the footy world needs to avoid a continuation of the darkest timeline.

Just remembered that Adelaide was by far the best team last year and Richmond rolled downhill into a premiership on the back of two home finals they didn't earn and now Adelaide's window is over and Eddie Betts will never play in a premiership

Let me start off with a basket of chips. Then move on to the pollo asado taco.

I don't even want to fathom the idea of Richmond going back to back ... footy is dead if this happens

Adelaide fans will never stop being funny. It was amazing walking down swan street as a tigers supporter last year after the game. Great job on playing well in every game except the one that counted though

I don't think we're very funny

Outside of a few loudmouths, most of the Crows fans I've seen are pretty accepting that they had a good season, blew it in the last game against a team that clearly deserved to win, and have now fallen well off the pace in 2018. From what I've seen with us it's less hysteria and more just grim acceptance.

The demons have yet to beat a good team so far this year but have a soft draw. If we finish top 4 we will be playing the second week

They did get a bit lucky last year but you can accuse most premiers of getting lucky. The cats were lucky Ross Lyon's brain exploded in 2009 when he decided to leave Ball on the bench. Hawthorn were lucky as hell falling over the line in 2 of their 3 premiership prelims and they got lucky in all 3 playing interstate sides on the big day. The Lions were lucky they only had a reasonably good Collingwood team to deal with rather than a truly great rival. Don't even get me started on the leg break Milne got in 2010, or Barry Hall being cleared to play in 2005.

That's not even looking at how many premiership teams simply get an amazing run with injury. You need an element of luck to win a flag. You need an element of luck to succeed in life, to find the right job, the right partner, the right social circle. I don't see the sense in being bitter about it. Sometimes you just get aced by real world RNG and there's gently caress all you can do about it.

Read what I quoted / your conspiracy theorist team mates in this thread for who Iím mainly talking about.

Real talk I actually donít mind the crows mainly because itís so cute how much crows fans care about port Adelaide and how little victorians get that, and itís just great. I have no idea whatís happened to you guys this year though :/

Speaking of the Tigers, I just looked at the fixture and for some reason Richmond are playing Sydney at Etihad after the bye. Is this some contractual obligation thing?

I think all Vic teams are required to play a home game there as a burden sharing excercise

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

Oh. Excellent. Just what we needed.

I guess Lachie Murphy will get some more games which is a nice story at least.


In other news, I see O'Brien got injured as well leaving us with effectively no backup ruck. I guess there's Paul Hunter on the rookie list, but more likely we'd just play Otten as a ruck if Jacobs got injured.

I got about a quarter trough on the train yesterday and today, itís fantastic.

The only downside is it makes me angry at how poo poo the data we get access to is compared to what is available from Champion. The level of detail they must have has access to for some of the things in this book is incredible.
