Thanks Hypen. That should get us at least one more win for the season.

See, Yeti, that's how smart Hypen is, he wins whatever he says, while the rest of us are just mongrel eagles supporting traitors.

Imagine if Ross came out and said we wouldn’t lose a single final in 2019 ...

The_Yeti Finals 1 month 4 weeks ago #20

The_Yeti
Bulldogs - away - probable loss
Geebung - home - almost certain loss
Deaf Cheats - away - probable loss
Essendrug - home - possible win but Essendon are playing significantly better than we are. They just ran down the Cows at home
Port - away - probable loss

I'm not seeing where 2 - 3 wins are going to come from, particularly when all of those teams are playing better football than we are. Where is the change going to come from to reverse the existing trend?

It's a funny old thing football. We can certainly win 2 - 4 of those games, every team can win on its day.

Regardless of how the season ends, I'd be happy to see more games like the one we played on the weekend, high pressure all round and great individual efforts to get us over the line.

2-3 wins is optimistic. You'll just get disappointed.
What I see today is not a finals side, but a team that showed character to arrest a losing streak, with a great final quarter effort and will to win.
It will have restored a bit of belief within the playing group but Sydney looked much slicker than us for much of the game and should have won it.. They clearly practice quick handballing and positioning and shepherding. We were advantaged by a tactical mismatch in height.
Otherwise most of the sides we are yet to play are scoring goals, we aren't. It's not negative to be realistic. If we can jag a win or two that's about as high as we'll go this year.

I've got us finishing 14th or 15th. Looking forward to Rosich engineering another mega deal that snares us that key forward we so desperately need.

Nah, Straddo, not all of us.

Sorry Yeti, poor choice of phrase. I should have said "See, Yeti, that's how much rat cunning Hypen has got". Mea Culpa.

Does it make any difference what KF they might snag - either Lyon's crap gameplan will break them with injury, play them at Peel til they've met some numbers, rotate them through the midfield or stick them down back.

So 13th beat 14th by a point.
To me that indicates we are where we deserve to be on the ladder and no way will we play finals this year
