A candidate for play of the day …

Early in the first quarter, Sidebottom in the middle of the ground kicks the ball off the ground forward. The ball ends up in dispute outside our forward 50 arc and gets cleverly knocked by Collingwood player ‘A’ to McCreery, who receives it cleanly, does a brief shimmy that confuses his man, then quickly sends a 35 meter pin point pass across the angles to Collingwood Player ‘B’ who marks in the forward pocket and kicks Collingwood’s second goal.

It was a nice piece of play. But what made it especially remarkable - and not sure how many people watching on the telly would have realised this - but Player ‘A’ and Player ‘B’ was the same player - Bobby Hill. It’s not clear in the vision how it happened (the vision was focused on McCreery’s gather). But Bobby Hill somehow teleported from outside the 50, to 20 meters from goal in the far pocket in the time it took for McCreery to receive the ball, hold onto it for the briefest of periods, and kick a 35m dart.

When the umpire called advantage to Brisbane in the last minute, gold. When Billy frampton dropped a sitter and everyone wanted to kill him. Gold.

Watching the replay, there’s a lot of Brissy players getting upset with each other. It’s the opposite with us, if someone messes up, there’s encouragement.

  • Frampton with the best 2 possession game you will ever see.
  • Peddles clutch goal
  • De Gory clutch goal
  • Berry smoooooooth brain.
  • When Sidebottom kicked that goal that was better than Sheed's.
  • Hearing the final siren.
  • Logging onto reddit and bigfooty and reading all the 'tainted flag' comments because of the umpiring.
  • Watching the replay of the advantage call because I missed it live, and noticing that it was a fairly marginal call and realising that all the negativity is driven by pure jealousy.
  • Realising that we are no longer everyone's 2nd team, and we are in fact. hated again.
  • 16 flags baby.

Bobby Hill's mark and goal. One of the best grand final marks of all time.

Sidebottom's game-winner
