Our score in the 79 grand final was our lowest for the season. If the ground was dry we would have won by at least 5 goals. We had a very fast side with the mosquito fleet.This thread is not about best years, but to temporary get off track myself, I rate 79 the best year.
The only time we did not score 100 was a couple of extremely wet and muddy days and the only few losses we had were narrow losses.
1995 we got smashed two weeks in a row. I count 95 as most complete end to a season but not the best season.
The 16 wins in a row after the two heavy losses to Swans and Saints was complete in that sense to comeback from those two bad failings but the 79 was had a better style of football to watch and just entertained to the max all year. Best season I seen.
But 79 teams also covers the best finals era for us of from 1978 to 1988 always in top five and four premierships in there that was as good as it gets for enjoyment as a fan following my club each season.
From those eras mentioned here I rate (not in order) the 72, 79 & 95 years as the best.
