sure, you can write whatever narrative you like and generally it’s forgotten. Only what actually happens from here matters.I feel the opposite actually. Half this group now knows the feeling of both winning one and losing one. They'll continue to develop two of the most highly rated KPF draftees of the past decade and their gun midfield is still young. Every chance to be their at the pointy end again next season.
How you can be three goals up half way through the third quarter of a Grand Final and almost lose by 100 points is mind blowing, but on another day they may just go on with it and win by 7 goals themselves.
Melbourne were outplayed for a quarter and half, Bulldogs were thrashed for 2 and half quarter.no excuses as I don't follow either team and you can only play to the rules of the current day which Melbourne did much better
fact is Melbourne played terrible footy for 40 minutes, for most grand finals that would see you at best come back for a tight victory
Correct - the sweeper Brown is talking about would have been a spare coming off half back last year.without the 6 - 6 - 6 they could have put some things in place
I think I just carried on the tradition of watching the grand final x times from the 3peat era. My signature hasn't been updated in 2 years.... but granted I haven't really watched them 328947239032790 times in the last 2 years... every couple of months I'll throw a grand final on to remember the goods times. I don't always watch them in full, sometimes I'll put on a match (grand final or otherwise) as background noise while doing other tasks. Still a bit ridiculous I know, but hey people have strange habits... mine is foooooooooooooooooooooooooty
Absolutely. The final margin doesn't really do justice to how enthralling a game it was for a large majority. And even the onslaught was magnificent viewing in its own way.its a bit weird that a grand final decided by ten billion points was such an engrossing game
