Yeah there's been a fair bit of hype been swallowed by some pies fans. Last night showed what a brilliant win the Grand final was with gaff and Shepherd proving their worth. Winning a premiership without 3 of your best 10 players is some achievement.Maybe we can play the next game on paper because you're not a better team on the MCG or Perth Stadium.
I look at the West coast team and see class on every line and great balance with no obvious weaknesses in structure (maybe ruck without NicNat). I look at Collingwood and there are question marks everywhere. Can their gun midfielders run both ways? Can you win a premiership with a lack of quality big forwards? Can a good ordinary player (Roughead) and a talented but unproven youngster (Moore) cover the key defensive posts? There's quality there but big questions to answer too.
