Quote from: Tassie Dave on October 05, 2023, 05:49:52 PMI know the term "Wooden Spoon" comes from one of the Oxbridge Unis.A quick Google search shows it was Cambridge.I thought it was for the student who came last, but Google tells me it was for the student who came last of those that Graduated with Honours.And while he lives, he wields the boasted prizeWhose value all can feel, the weak, the wise;Displays in triumph his distinguish'd boon,The solid honours of the Wooden Spoon—"The Wooden Spoon" from The Cambridge Tart (1823)It is a real wooden spoonMy beloved Tigers have won either won 6 or 7 Wooden Spoons, depending on how you view the 1916 season.Richmond finished 3rd of 4 teams after the Home & Away season, but finished 4th of 4 after the Finals.Some people say Fitzroy by finishing 4th after the H&A games won the Wooden Spoon, but then never lost a game and won the Premiership. Some say Richmond won by finishing last after all the games were played. I count it as being Richmond's. Under the playing rules of that season we finished last.

Quote from: Tassie Dave on October 11, 2023, 09:17:24 PMSorry to burst your bubble, but that stat about Collingwood is not quite right. That is their average for Home games played at the MCG in 2023. A ground that can hold over 100,000 people.
