Diesel just got a bit of extra rest before winning the Norm Smith.

My only memory of that game seems to be Carlton either getting a free kick before the opening bounce, or a two-for-one early on from a free kick. That and the whole centre square being a mud pit.
My memory was, that I was very drunk and in the standing room area with limited view on the Southern Stand, could see only part of the ground. We came back slightly by 3/4 time after being down early, to give us some hope, only to be absolutely blown away in the last.

For some reason that night felt really black, as if it was being played on some country ground with limited lighting. Your recollection is right, I remember the commentary at 3/4 time saying "well they were getting blown away but North Melbourne have turned this into a dogfight (after bringing margin down to 19pts)."

Nek minnit, lose by 60.

A little North kid with his folks next to me starting crying in the last quarter. I always thought it would've been good to see the expression on his face a year later :thumbsu:
