When I was doing my post-doc at the University of Melbourne in 2000, I was around to witness one of the most amazing seasons in professional sports. The Essendon Bombers romped through the home and away season and finals with a mere one loss, when they got caught napping in one game. They were seemingly unstoppable.
Now I find myself wondering if the Geelong Cats, less than a decade later, can pull off another fairy tale season. They've just beat their closest competitor... and they've only lost one game. Can anyone stop them one more time this season?
