    Opinion Is Petracca's 39 touches the best GF performance ever?

    Had plenty of it and used it well - hate to be a party pooper but at times it was on the back of running forward of the contest when Oliver was extracting the pill for him. There was a period in the game where that gamble wasn't working and his direct opponent (Bont) was carving it up. Some of...

    The grand final has completely validated 6-6-6

    It was a devastating few minutes of footy that probably would have been halted without 6-6-6. I like that it can give you hope that you could pull that off at some stage during the game. On the other hand, if your defence is outmanned / injured / struggling badly it is mighty scary.

    The grand final has completely validated 6-6-6

    What does the data say about scores in 2019-2021 without 6-6-6? We don't know. It could have been a lot, lot, lower. So we can't conclude that 6-6-6 has had no effect on scoring.

    The grand final has completely validated 6-6-6

    It validated Melbourne's flag credentials. Actually no, that was more like 5 minutes!

    Toast Best Remembered Grand Final Goals of All Time

    Steele Sidebottoms' in 2011 was pretty good, and Varcoe's 4th quarter goal has been mentioned. Hodge 2015 was pretty amazing. Isaac Smith 2013 sticks in my mind as one that set the tone for the last quarter. Malceski in 2012 pretty good. Tom Boyd because BT said fck on the radio.

    Coach Would you want Paul Roos to have anything to do with your football department?

    Melbourne won with aggressive, flowing, daring attacking footy. Paul Roos may have built individual character and team ethos but game style has nothing to do with him at all.

    Under-rated Grand Finals

    Even including Melbourne's late burst, which really adds to the narrative, the first three quarters were great. Perfect combination of pressure footy and flowing footy. Then it blew out. Oh well.

    Deserving premiers. Won all finals emphatically and only really lost h&a games to sh*t teams when they probably weren't trying.

    AFL Grand Final - 1 minute Applause at 20:21 in first quarter for Victorias lockdown

    Yeah nah, for two reasons; 1. Once the game starts, it's all about the game. That's it. People won't be watching the clock waiting to applaud. 2. I think overall Dan has done a good job, but this sort of public display for a politician isn't right. If we are to applaud, it should be for health...

    Roast Highly regarded players whose legacy has been ruined by their media careers

    100% Channel 7 turns people into knobs. Even back in the day BT was good on MMM.

    Current Anti Lockdown Anti Jab - Protests Australia.

    It's not that strange when you consider that Twitter is largely the domain of young progressives, and that there have been many reports saying that these protests have a high proportion of Neo-Nazi / RWNJ types in them.
