*shakes head* (Surely the Dorkers have used up all their footy luck for this season by now.)
lol I walked in just in time to see both of those close wins they've had happen recently
Hehe. I guess the silver lining is that the result means the Eagles won't cough up 3rd spot to the Tigers.
They're getting a good ol' floggin' tonight. Early in the third quarter and a 100+ point margin is already on the cards.
...and it becomes Ross Lyon's first 100+ point loss in his coaching career.

Adelaide: 20.23 (143)
Failmantle: 6.7 (43)
catchy scoreline
Maybe this thread should be Fremantle - 2017

I think we should rename it Fremantle Are Poo Poo Dunderheads - 2017
OMG. How many times did we (the Eagles) slip in and out of the Top 8 of the 'live ladder' in that match, even late in the last quarter? What a nail-biter of a last-ever AFL match at Subi Oval. West Coast scrapes into the finals by half of a percent! Sorry Demons, not sorry. I'm also glad we didn't do too well or else we'd be 7th and facing the rampaging Swans over there in the finals. *does a happy jig* GO EAGLES!!!
They could check out of the 8 whenever they like, but they could never leave.
Go Tiges
Hehe. Imagine if we beat Port in our elimination final, then helped the Crows to a 'straight sets' exit by beating them in a semi final - South Australia would never forgive us.

If I fantasise a bit further, we then go on to win our preliminary final and then beat GOD-DAMN Sydney in the grand final again. Oooooooooh yeah! I think I'm gonna need a towel now. hehe
Hi everyone. For pure sh*ts and giggles I thought I'd post the No.1 hits for every Grand Final week from 1940 till now. And it's due to research on this very website that I've been able to do so, so thanks to Bulion and everyone else for their assistance.
I've included Melbourne No. 1s (based on Gavin Ryan's Melbourne chart book) where applicable and where they differ from the national No. 1 until 1987 when we had Sydney, West Coast and Brisbane teams and the VFL became more or less a national competition. Winning premiership teams are in brackets. Cheers

That's a great collection of songs since 1977 (my birth year) at least - I only dislike 1981, 1983, 2011 and 2016's.
The twice recent trifecta songs don't go together so well. Would've been cool if they had.
I just realised, the #1 single when Richmond last made a grand final (and lost) in 1982 was 'Eye of the Tiger' -- not such a great omen for the Tiges on that occasion
My Crows are in the grand final for the first time! It's surreal to be part of it. A lifetime of heartbreak but we made it eventually.
Yeah. Sorry about those 2005/2006 prelim losses my boys gave ya, zxc. ;P
Adelaide Crows$1.70
Richmond Tigers$2.20
In 1921 Richmond beat Geelong in a final, went into a preliminary final with an unchanged lineup and won. They then went into the Grand Final with an unchanged lineup and won.
In 1969 Richmond beat Geelong in a final, went into a preliminary final with an unchanged lineup and won. They then went into the Grand Final with an unchanged lineup and won.
In 2017 Richmond beat Geelong in a final, went into a preliminary final with an unchanged lineup and won. They then went into the Grand Final with an unchanged lineup and won.
My favourite stat was that it was apparently the first grand final since the 1800's where every player was playing their first grand final.
Musically, Richmond really were robbed in 1982
DaveNT. So true. Hijinx. Yeah, not since 1898 had no players in the GF ever played in one before -- a ripper stat! And with Adelaide now losing, it means that every team who has ever played in a GF has now lost at least one. Collingwood have lost the most (26) and drawn twice.
Ah yes, it had only occurred to me briefly last night that this was Adelaide's first ever GF loss. Perhaps in due time Gold Coast/GWS will start contributing to these stats themselves, it's a little wild to me that the latter have already come so far as to make the preliminary final.
