Results for Round 3 of the Finals

Post by gerry on Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:08 am

Raptors 309 def by Ridgebacks 349.

Wow. Didn't see this coming. One of the lowest combined scores in Preliminary final in ages. Ridgebacks scored 179 from his all stars but (apart from the Griff) not much else. 2 points and a donut from his goal-kickers! Five tackles from Kelly and Lenny! Not that the Raptors did much better - although a decent ruckman might have helped. A real noodle-scratcher, this one. scratch Raptors were never really a finals threat, especially without a Prospectus!

Maulers 389 def by Vipers 436.
Vipers on his merry way to his first grand final. Once again, a massive possession count helped (127 points) and 13 tackles from Swallow (but only one from Selwood!) did the job. Only a lacklustre effort from his two Carlton all stars prevented a much higher score. Maulers terribly unlucky to go down despite 22 tackles. However, Cloke let him down with a big donut in front of goal and Jolly decided to take the week off for some "me-time" leaving the ruck duties to Rhys Stanley!??! Bad luck Jeffie!

Next week: Ridgebacks v Vipers!

Can Vipers win and create history from seventh place or has he played his grand final already?
Can the Ridgebacks join the elite and win his third premiership or will he add another second place place trophy to his already wrecked pool-room cabinet?

I honestly cant believe im in the GF. What a year. First I thought I wouldnt make the finals, and then in every week throughout these finals ive thrown in the towel at times believing that ive lost. I guess thats why I love this game.

You were unlucky Jeff. Considering you had no ruck and then Cloke gave you nothing and then Vince gets subbed out you gave me one hell of ride this weekend.

I dont know about that Macca. Apart from those who dont want you to win a 3rd premiership I think the other coaches would be split on who they would prefer to win.

Actually to be honest I think Josie would like to see you win it Macca. I know she is dreading living with me if I manage to pull out a win.

I asked her and her response was she is dreading it either way. If I win i'll be driving her crazy and if I lose she'll have to sit through seeing me weeping in the corner of the room in the fetal position in the dark.

Perhaps she could give Dani a call and see how she copes.
BTW has D ever seen your reaction when you win Macca? Very Happy

Really? Come on now, lets get serious.

You finished top this year WITH the highest average score, I finished 7th. You have also won 2 premierships, where I have won none.

No doubt I am the underdog here, the Cinderella team if you will. The small town team with limited resources that have to rely on home grown talent and heart to make it this far. You are the big time varsity school with the national recruits and money to burn in your pocket. Ok maybe ive watched too many sport movies, but in my mind this is how this has played out so far.

Only as good as your last game.
You're favourite.
The draw also helps...Riewoldt is the game killer.

Wow, Jase, for a rookie Grand Finalist, you are playing this quite well.
You are nicely setting Macca up for a big fall...
Next you will be getting your players into shape by hitting slabs of meat and running up municipal stairs....

No choke or pressure on my side. The way I look at it, if I win this year it will be like Hawthorn in 2008. I'll take the win but it's before my time. My premiership window has only just opened.

Not at all.

None of that was in reference to your team. Merely pointing out that I feel the best is yet to come from my core group of players as they are still young.

Confident that my team is young. Yup i'll go on record and state that is true.

You know as well as I do that players dont hit their prime until 25 - 26. Most of my core group of players are still under that. Hence why I believe their best is yet to come.

Does any of that mean I think I will win this year? Of course not. You are still the resounding favourite.
