    I reckon it's an inadvertent concesson that there's a doubt that his team is the best in the league. In the past he just let the players do the talking knowing they're the stand out team in the league, now it's like he's resorting to mind games to try and get the opposition unsettled.

    YOu're probably right, but why now and not last year when the Saints beat them and ended up higher on the ladder?

    Actually it makes sense now, since the Saints have beaten them twice this year PLUS Collingwood beating them. There's arguagbly two teams challenging their mantle rather than just one this year.

    Not sure. Maybe because they've lost a final it's all come to a head.

    The Ablett thing has obviously had some effect though. There's no doubt he's sick of talking and hearing about it.

    Yeah. There's an air of desperation about it I reckon. Might be reading a bit too much into it though.

    Maybe his kids have been pissing him off and he's off his game, who knows.

    Whole FC panel tipped Collingwood btw.

    Anyone watch On The Couch or One Week at a Time? Similar sentiments?

    Watched OWAAT. Quartermain and Walls backed Geelong, Darcy backed Collingwood.

    I'm going to the Prelim, but I've got a sick feeling I'm going to leave shattered like I did in 07. When the ****s on OWAAT start talking about giving Bartel and Ling run with jobs on Swan and Pendlebury, to free up Ablett, Selwood, Chapman, Kelly, and Corey to be creative, it sounds intimidating. I just hope Geelong come out still thinking they're playing Freo and try to be all fancy, and that we smash them in the first quarter - once we're in the game I'll back us, but worried we might get jumped early and then never really recover.

    One way or another, I'm going to become the first mod to get banned for what's going to happen in this thread over the next two weeks.

    Close to 100k people expected at the game. I'd imagine around 60k of them will be Collingwood fans.

    Seeing as though we'll have so many of them in the one place we should compromise the 40k Geelong fans and neutrals and blow up the stadium.

    Greater good for the greater number etc etc.

    This plan gets better by the minute. Any chance you can get Rafael Nadal and Jake King there with you?

    I like it tbh.

    Brady stiffer than Swallow and Boomer imo. The other two better obv but Rawlings year stacks up very well against the guys picked in his position.

    Averaged about 27 possessions while having some standout shutdown games on the likes of Rioli, Lecras etc

    AFAIK doesn't have his own website though.
