I would not discount the borough in the vfl gf. Reckon docklands will suit the borough and could worry Richmond who generally have a shocking record at docklands. Will be out numbered supporter base by 10 to 1 but that could bond them closer. Lots will depend on what happens a day earlier. Gary ayres will have his toughest challenge come sunday. Time will tell in what looks as a tall order. Port Melbourne will have a lot more supporters than gws will ever have. An afl make up side with no soul whatsoever and no matter how many top picks it has had and how many flags it will mean gws like its abbreviation GREAT WASTE OF SPACE. Expecting a very healthy crowd on sunday and even bigger if the Tigers beat AFL'S gws which everyone hopes will happen besides the clowns that run the afl. How was the crowd at spotless (aptly named) stadium. Worst since 1916 in a final. What a joke.
As you say vfa it will depend on how the Tigers go on Sat on how big the crowd will be.
Dont write the GWS off they might cause an upset as you know on the day in a finals match anything can happen any mant favorites have lost - lets hope Richmond stay strong and win.
A classic case was in 1957 when Willy went through the entire season 20 matches undeafed with a % of 184 but lost both finals!
I am very wary billy. Football can be a cruel game. Been following footy for a long time and don't take anything for granted. Haven't written gws off especially on a firmer surface. I won't buy anything to their poor mcg record either. I will be praying for the yellow and black on Saturday and hopefully they will have a win. Richmond first game in 15 days and only one in 3 weeks. Always a question mark. Also interesting that both teams with direct passage to preliminary final in box hill and willy both lost. Same as last year in afl with the dogs and swans both coming from semi finals and beat gws and Adelaide who had direct passage to preliminary final. Go tigers on saturday !!!
Not eveyone wants Richmond to win on Saturday VFA. I think it would be great for a Richmond weekend of pain like Willy on Sunday. Go GWS on Saturday and the Borough on Sunday
There is plenty of Richmond haters but since it has been a long drought not many would go for gws. If Richmond would become a consistent successful team like 40 years ago then they would be loathed especially by Collingwood, carlton, essendon supporters. Anything can happen on the weekend for the yellow and black maybe pleasure, maybe pain ?? Could be yellow and black or yellow and bleak. Time will tell.
As an Australian Football supporter Im a little more genrerous in praise of what the AFL are trying to achieve in spreading our great game right across the nation so I dont hate any of the newer teams and wish them well.Just not GWS this week.
Wether we ex VFA prople like it or not the AFL does control the game now 100% and as for as Im concerned they are doing a pretty good job.Ive moved on as I think the promotion of our game is more important and bigger than past pettiness.
As far as AFL Victoria and the disfunctional VFL thats another matter
