    In 2016 the grand final was played at a venue Sydney had played at more than their opponent

    Yes, and the hometown umpiring definitely helped your mob.

    All Sydney had to do was outscore the opposition, relatively simple. Swans were not good enough on the day but resort to blaming the umpires!! :p

    I think there’s a case to mount in 2016, rightly or wrongly.

    In 2014 they were bullied by a side playing scintillating football at the peak of their powers. Truly humbled by Hawthorn that day. Hawthorn would’ve been just as dominant if the game was played on the moon.

    Mark Evans admitted that 4 of the Bulldogs goals were from terrible umpiring decisions. 4 goals is enough to sway the game, in fact those 4 goals probably determined the result. I forget the exact stat but halfway through the 4th quarter the Bulldogs had a huge free kick advantage. The Swans got a couple of square ups in the dying minutes, but even with those it was still massively one sided. Hannebery got injured when he was taken out by a bulldogs player and was never quite the same after but for some reason even that was not a free kick

    I'd argue there was more than the 4:

    Add these to the list:
    - Grundy handballing to Mills who tries to take on Cordy in the pocket and is caught holding the ball. Terrible decision by Grundy & Mills.
    - Buddy attempting to outrun Morris who brings him down in the centre square. Ball spills to Boyd who kicks that huge goal. Terrible decision by Buddy.
    - Grundy leaving Boyd all alone in the goal square for the Bont to hit him uncontested. Terrible decision by Grundy
    - Grundy attempting to take a mark one handed and in the process of Grundy never controlling the ball, it spills to Dickson who snaps a goal.

    Im sure there's more than this tho.

    Maybe Tippett had a point in the change rooms after the game.

    How is that remotely relevant to what I said? Are you saying Bulldogs players made no mistakes during the game?

    From my perspective Buddy is lucky that he is considered a 2x premiership player. He stole the medal that should have gone to cult hero MATT SPANGHER in 2013.

    Everyone knows, including Mark McVeigh, that you hit Hanners hard and he doesn't go near it for the rest of the day.

    Very good polayer in his prime, but like Lewis Jetta, goes missing under duress...

    I like to display my emotions. What’s wrong with that?

    Jetta does have this reputation and can be lazy hence he has been dropped a few times for my club.

    But I can say that he has played some high quality classy games in high pressure situations.

    Round 23 2017
    First final 2018

    And I think he played his part in our Grand Final win.

    I am not adverse to having him in our starting line up and he is unfairly maligned.

    Quite the opposite I’d say.

    I suspect there won’t be evidence to justify the creation of a “Tom’s Regret” thread

    Do Bulldogs even win if the umps were brave enough to pay a 50 very late in the game to Scully after a doggies player gets so close to him whilst trying to kick after a mark he had to change his own line to avoid the player? Worst ever non call of a protected space violation I can recall.

    In what way did he help you in 2012? By being best on ground for Hawthorn?

    I think footy fans severely overrate how much some of these blokes care about premierships etc. Particularly when they've already won two. I'm sure everyone one is amazing but you constantly here players talk about how special their first flag was.

    Sure maybe when he meets up with his Hawks mates they give him a bit of shit about leaving but do you honestly think this bloke is sitting there often and going "gee why the **** did I come up here?"?

    He has set himself up for life, no doubt lives in a nice house in Sydney, has two flags and still gets shit load of attention.

    He has the best of both worlds.

    Pretty much exactly the same as the record of lower ranked teams against higher ranked teams in finals...

    Symptomatic of the day, bulldogs went harder when it was there to be won. Wood didn’t slide, he just went lower and harder and hannerbery shirked it and paid the price

    Same coin just a few less years not to mention his marketing worth at Hawthorn being greater than his at Sydney.

    Well with Sydney he was guaranteed those extra millions. If he stayed at Hawthorn and his career ended earlier he wasn’t going to make those millions.

    And like I said maybe he was ready for something different.

    Plus maybe he wanted a change.
