Richmond will be hoping for a win but I am betting Carlton over Richmond.
Is it over yet...........................If your not interested, why even open up the thread?
Just utterly fed up with the media crap surrounding the grand final.Is it over yet...........................If your not interested, why even open up the thread?
Should be a ripping game today, hard to split the two on form, and as a neutral, and with the stories going around about both sides, its hard to split them from a sentimental point of view. That said for some unknown reason I find myself slightly leaning towards Adelaide, by a couple of goals, but I don't really know.
''Twas a terrific game and well done to Richmond.As a Crows supporter I can say well done to Richmond however it was definitely not a terrific came, possibly our worst performance of the year, the second and third terms in particular we had no structure at all and it was just kick and hope out of defense for around an hour.
I have to say that I can never understand the tactics of a team in Adelaide's position in this game. They started the last quarter needing to kick 6 goals to nil in order to win. What did they do? They short-passed in the back half and messed with the ball which hadn't got them very far to that point in the game.AFL teams put a GREAT deal of practice/training to play there particular way, Aussie rules is so fast the players reactions need to be instinctive, hence the great amount of practice required, changing the style of play at a moments notice is almost impossible and is likely to create a complete disaster.
It called for long kicks straight down the middle at every opportunity. To win, they had to re-think and try something radical. In a grand final it doesn't matter whether you lose by one point or 20 goals, but at least have a go.
