This might sound like a stupid question to ask coz its a ******* grand final so of course its our best win that we've ever seen, but does anyone else rate the win vs Geelong in round 23 even better than this? They are really neck and neck for me.

That Geelong game really needed a crowd. I find rewatching crowd-less games are so much less than what they should be. Round 23 was amazing and needed reaction shots of 35,000 bewildered Geelong supporters and their stupid faces as Max slotted the winner.

About the same time BT was anointing him the Norm Smith medalist and greatest Bulldog player of all time
All things considered, the Channel 7 call was pretty good. BT crowning Bont the Norm Smith winner is actually kinda funny in retrospect; another call I listened to had some other flog saying to put Petracca forward and give Kozi a run in the middle at the same time :embarrassedv1:

Depends on your own personal criteria obviously. Can't beat the R23 game for grit and determination. Can't beat the GF for emotion and meaning. Both are incredible.

To be fair 3 of our last 4 wins could have been best of the year for us. Brisbane was the only one I wouldn’t consider a super win.

I rewatched the second half of round 23 the other day. It was epic. To think we were within a goal with almost 10 mins left in the last to. It can’t beat the grand final though.
It’s interesting Geelong made a point of players being unwell several times. But in their wisdom played half a dozen unwell players in a prelim. With an ageing list I’ll be interested to see if there are any long term effects from the prelim pummelling.
Geelong in the bottom 6 this year.
Well hope so anyways

In terms of quality over 120 minutes R23 is well ahead of the GF, I think, even isolated from the minor premiership narrative. We played some incredible football in both games.

I think Oliver’s performance in R23 would be ahead of Trac’s GF too

Remember when we were the best team all year but everyone thought we'd Melbourne it... then we didn't and took a massive dump on every team's chest in the finals, leaving the biggest, thickest, solid log of brown stinky sh*t for the team who had been smugly talking up their chances all year. They folded like a cheap western suburbs suit.... ah sh*t time for another replay :tearsofjoy:
