I can't believe this is so far down the page.
I still think this was the biggest game of football outside of a grand final ever. The build up was just so huge. The personalities - Sheedy and Elliott at the forefront. The rivalry (the 'most premierships' thing mattered a lot at the time). The massive underdog vs what is arguably the best team ever.
And then the match itself absolutely delivered everything, right up to the dying seconds.
Not to mention the shock state election result that day. Two stunners in a single day!
