Thought this was a good Grand Final. Gripping arm wrestle for 2.5 quarters, then the Demons flicked a switch and played the most dominant quarter and a half we've seen in Grand Final history.When will we get a decent granny?

Staggering game, really. Can't recall many like it.
Turning point when caleb dumped gawn on the floor i felt was a cheap shot the dees fired up from then. Was the tinyest player decking the tallest player. Dees said how dare you. Dees tore the dogs apart from that point onwards.
Thought Caleb daniel was lucky not to get reported too.
Was a low act and cost the dogs the cup i think.
Dees ran all over them from that point.
It fired up the Dees.
Petracca said otherwise on TV yesterday.
Darren Burgess (former High Performance at Melbourne) on a podcast said the Daniel/Gawn incident was one of the combination of things that happened that resulted in 100-7, and confirmed it did upset players on the bench.
Burgess also confirmed Gawn was due to come off and once off Gawn said Jackson was going to kill Stef Martin, so Gawn wanted to go back on as a forward after his rest.
If it did fire us up that's great but there was absolutely nothing in it. Gawn put a heap of mayo on it.
The Dogs favouritism by the umpires is BS.
They are generally first to the ball and have players who are really fair.
Massive beat up.
