      Fair enough, I hold my judgement until I have watched the game.

      But that is a quotable quote all the same. That being said, Collingwood are lucky Geelong missed so many goals - as they might just have won!

      Only Swans games are broadcast live on free to air on Saturday nights into NSW/ACT.

      Foxtel covers both Saturday night games, which is no good if you don't have Fox.

      If they are minor premiers, and in the finals - or in the grand final? Id say they will be pretty unstoppable if they actually get to the grand final, yes.

      These stats don't truly mean anything, of course, but are worth noting all the same:

      1. The last 8 premiership teams lost to their GF opponents at their previous home & away fixture.

      2. Collingwood haven't beaten a Victorian team in the finals for almost 20 years.

      1. Collingwood is on top of the ladder
      2. Collingwood is currently the best afl team in the world

      That's what I love about Pies fans, they're just so damn modest

      Shame you don't support Essendon then!

      Here are some more statistics...

      Carlton Premierships;

      1915 Premiership Team: Defeated Collingwood Football Club
      1938 Premiership Team: Defeated Collingwood Football Club
      1970 Premiership Team: The Great Comeback - Defeated Collingwood Football Club
      1979 Premiership Team: Defeated Collingwood Football Club
      1981 Premiership Team Defeated Collingwood Football Club

      VS.

      Collingwood Premierships;

      1910 Premiership Team: Defeated Carlton Football Club

      If only Collingwood could have kicked straighter, they may have even more premierships?

      Same number of Premierships, yes, but I didn't say that. Only one team has won 16 Grand Finals.

      On that front, Essendon is no better than lowly Collingwood.

      It amazes me the number of Essendon followers that think/assume they have actually won 16 Grand Finals. Two were "gifted" due to them finishing on top and there being no final series in those years. You might remember 1999; yeah, the team that finishes the regular season doesn't always win the flag.



      As a Carlton supporter I know I'm in no position to be hanging schitt on any other clubs for salary cap rorts, however, as far as I recall Essendon is the only club to be fined for cheating the cap in the same year they won a flag. That was 1993 to save you looking it up.

      So, you've won 16 flags, but only 14 Grand Finals, and in one of those you were proven to be cheating the system. Really, then, Collingwood are in front there too.

      Err...

      Yeah, like I said, I'm in no position to call anyone on salary cap cheating and while Carlton was most likely fiddling the books for most of the 90s too, we didn't get busted/penalised for that. At least not officially anyway. I suspect a fair whack of our eventual penalty in 2002, which was signed off by former Essendon man Ron Evans I might add, had a fair degree of history behind it.



      Anyway, it's all fun and games until Collingwood wins a flag.

      1 flag in 50 years.

      I can see why you think it's all historical crap. You've only won one flag in colour.

      The game is following the Carlton v Richmond pattern. Its just the skills are a bit better.

      I'd love a 100 point win!

      Wonder if Julia is watching. At least she will know what a flogging feels like before polling day.

      After witnessing the Pies first hand last night and the dominance of the Cats tonight there are only two obvious contenders.

      Both teams were a pleasure to watch if you were a pure footy fan, a bit depressing if you were the opposition

      If they do happen to be the final two I think it will be the match of the century (so far that is)
