Geelong's recent record against Richmond is poor, so how can they turn it around on Saturday?

  Geelong's recent record against Richmond is poor, so how can they turn it around on Saturday? On May 6, 2007, a new era of dominance in the AFL officially began. Mark Thompson’s Geelong Cats were coming off a bitterly disappointing 2006 campaign that saw them unfathomably miss finals. Coming into Round 6, 2007, they had just lost their second match in a row to fall to 2-3 and were in desperate need of a steadier. They got more than they could have possibly imagined – a scarcely believable 157-point demolition of Richmond catapulted them to new heights. They’d go on to win 15 matches in a row before claiming a drought-breaking flag.

Congratulations to the Richmond Tigers who beat the Adelaide Crows in the 2017 AFL Grand Final.

Football fans took to the streets to celebrate the Richmond Tigers victory in the AFL Grand Final. The Richmond Tigers are vying for their third premiership flag in four years. For the Cats, it would be their first premiership since 2011. One household Melbourne appears to support the Richmond

The premiership party is still in full swing for the Richmond Tigers, a day after their third AFL grand final win in four years.

Several bleary-eyed players looked worse for wear on Sunday after a sleepless night of celebrations following their 31 point win against the Geelong Cats at the Gabba in Brisbane.

Some stars arrived clutching plastic cups of beer and still wearing their Tigers jersey and premiership medals from the night before.

Players addressed the media at Elite Gold Coast before the boozy celebrations continued inside, which coincided with Shane Edwards' 32nd birthday.

Dusty v Danger - two AFL giants who couldn't be more different

  Dusty v Danger - two AFL giants who couldn't be more different Richmond bad boy Dustin Martin and Geelong's Patrick Dangerfield might be likened to chalk and cheese off the footy ground. As far as the general public knows about it anyway. 'Dusty' Martin doesn't care much about revealing to the wider world what it is that actually makes him tick. In the wild, he's often described as aloof, arrogant and perhaps a little bit caught up in his own opinion of himself. He has good reason to think that way of course. 'Danger' is the polar opposite. The Cat superstar has participated in endless interviews for television, radio and newspapers this season.
