Thread: 4 finals losses in a row

  1. #13
    Hawks and now GWS target us. Clubs with a bit of Mongrel will try it as well.

    Check the title of this thread. Weve been favourite in 3 of them.

    This looks like a pattern to me.

    We were not favourites against Freo last year and against North we had half a team. Anybody who thought we were favourites yesterday was kidding themselves. The bookies have us at $1.45 next week which is the reverse of what it should be. We are an honest team that gets everything out of every match and when the finals come there may just not be another gear!

    Its partly 'aura' or perception. Heard a commentator, who was a midfielder, speaking about playing against Nick Nat say that it it is almost impossible to tell where his tap is going to go, so the opposition mids are already on the back foot before the ball is bounced.

    We were favourites yesterday paying about $1.50.

    I realise that but were we really favourites in the mind of the players. We are $1.50 against the crows next Saturday but does anyone really believe we are the most likely winners?

    YES
    It is after all the RWO page if you don't think we can win then jump onboard the Interlopers bandwagon

    If we turn up to play we will win.
