What is 'groupthink' and does it apply in AFL (real stuff or fantasy footy) [BONUS EP]
[BONUS EP] I mentioned last time that we don't do too many of these bonus eps, but here is another one while we work on long-form content for the next podcast. This episode is cover the concept of 'groupthink'.

Geelong Cats List Review 2021 - Deja Vu Cats still old, still need to win, still have a cliff coming
The Cats have been holding on for years and they continue down the path of topping up with older players to keep the window ajar. They finished on top in 2019 but failed to fire in finals, finished top 4 in 2020 and made the grand final, and are set for another top 2/4 finish in 2021. The Cats are still running out of time, but in this league you need to be lucky and/or do something different to everyone else to have a chance, and Geelong are certainly doing that.
