Yes, I'm into it in quite a big way. It's hard to escape here.

Fremantle came close in 2013 but they have done very well so far this year leading the comp.
Have a feeling it may be another Hawks-Freo GF... but this time with the result reversed.
Good luck Falcon and enjoy the rest of the season!

Living in Melbourne , I have no choice .

My Tigers have been generally mauled for rather a long time ; but the last couple of seasons they've really made some progress - especially this year.
I'm quietly confident of our chances tomorrow against your Purple Mob , Geordie Falcon Fingers Crossed

Ah good stuff guys.

I spent 2004 - 2005 in Australia and visited some family. Despite 99 % of them being West Coast fans, the one docker fan got me a scarf etc etc so I become a Dockers fan - which I was informed at the time was probably the worst team in the AFL. However they have slowly improved.
I Was lucky enough to see them play as well with big Pavlich, Aaron Sandilands' etc.

Think its a great sport.

The'yre doing quite well this season...

PS, Sorry Alfie we snuck that one last week.....

Think you will have that one in the bag , GF. I see Buddy Franklin is out for Sydney this week so that limits their chances even more...

My Tigers need to overcome their recent habit of losing elimination finals - but if they get over North all right - as they should - I don't mind a trip to Sydney the next week : mind you tire them out good and proper , eh Smile

I think if those results happen we can only meet Freo in the Grand Final ... but now I really am dreaming....

Yeah that's a strange one about Franklin isn't it. Mental health issues?

I can handle that final Alfie, though I might sulk like a big sook for a few days if we lose Wink Very Happy

Ah well that's it for my poor old Tigers - again. Picked a bloody elimination final to play their worst game for months...

Good luck to your Purple Mob , GF. I'd as soon they won it now as anyone else left in ; though I won't actively support them - my support might be a burden they just couldn't carry Smile
