They've already started crying.

Which is just as logic defying, since Swans have at great record at Kardinia Park of late?
Surely the MCG is a better option for Geebung?

This is the problem when your game plan solely evolves around Dangerfield's impact on the contest; way too one-dimensional.

I reckon this mob are already psychology defeated by the task ahead, particularly after last years Prelim result, which they got into by default.

Some careers on the line now; they'd want to improve against a rampaging Swans team with Lance well and truly in the zone.

Hope they get f&cking belted by Sydney. I'll piss myself stupid.

Wouldn't be writing them off against Sydney just yet. Swans will go in with confidence and pretty much everyone will be expecting them to win, but the Cats at their best can definitely beat them.

Yet another thread dedicated to premature expostulation.

A vastly overrated team. A couple of stars at the top, but too many mediocre players on the list.

Trading in Ablett next year will help to bring their dropoff even closer. Only reason they're performing as well as they have is that the comp is very even without the dominant teams at the top and they have the right age profile.

I look forward to us "dropping off" from 3 flags in 5 years to finish second most years, too.

They'll be out in straight sets,so no,they won't finish second.

Hmmmmmmmmmm. Discuss.

So I was wrong,along with about 95% of the football community.They'll be out in four sets next week,or three sets if you're talking about a women's game.

Yet, you can still expect my old mate qldmagpie467 to propose a courageous trade - Langdon and Sidebottom for Rohan within the next 24 hours. Go figure.

There is no harm in being "wrong". I thought your post deserved a re-visit because you tried to deny the obvious, not because you were "wrong". Your previous post was merely speculative and wishful thinking, just like your present one.

I'm with you in wanting them to lose. At one stage, I went through a few years of predicting that they were about to fall away.

Yet, here we are - no Bartel, no Scarlett, no Ablett, no Rooke, no Johnson, no Chapman, no Kelly, no Ling, no Milburn, no Mooney, no Ottens, no Corey, no Enright etc and they are still finishing second and winning finals against the odds with Selwood half-fit, Dangerfield playing full-forward and a make-shift full-back (with Lonergan out ill). Geelong has had 15 players who have reached 250 career games for them. 8 of those have retired in the last decade and they still keep backing up, year after year.

Geelong's home and away season ranking since 2007 has finished 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 6, 2, 3, 10, 2, 2. Of course, teams change their rankings after the finals. For example, in 2009 and 2011, Geelong finished "1" after the finals, although they'd "only" been "2" during the year.

In the same period, we finished 6, 8, 4, 1, 1, 4, 6, 11, 12, 12, 13. There's a fair question to be asked about why Geelong didn't fall too far after their two number one finishes and have remained there or thereabouts, whereas Collingwood has plummeted. So, Geelong dropped to 6th, then backed up to finish 3rd or higher in 4 of the next 5 seasons. We dropped to 6th and, well, that was it for our era. No "dead cat bounce". Nothing. Nor, for the record, do I think it's all about the coach.

It's fun to mock opposition teams when they lose big finals but it's not as much fun as barracking for your own team when they get there.

If I have to endure another Geelong game with Ling commentating I'll spew up. One more week then they're out. They did everyone else a favour last night but the Crows will annihilate them at home.

Let's hope so. Otherwise, we could have a repeat of 1967, only without Kevin Bartlett, Royce Hart, Denis Marshall and Billy Goggin - so what would be the point?

Carna Cows. Surprised
