    Shit load to name. Will add more later

    1999 - North vs Essendon. The Dons win an epic shootout that lives famously in football folklore History. Carey nailed 10 in a losing side, as Lloyd contributed 7 for the Dons as they prevailed 24 goals to 20. The match brought out these two pearlers from the great Spearheads.






    Round 1, 1999. North vs Geelong. Another shootout involving North, and another loss for the eventual premiers
    5.0 8.7 14.8 22.9 141 Kangaroos 8.3 15.5 19.7 21.9

    Despite leading by 29 points at three quarter time, the Roos were to be run down with an 8 goal to two final term. Electric stuff to open Friday night football in a great season, the last of the great 1990's.


    1998 Round 22 - North vs Western. 68,000 fans came to witness the Top of the Table clash in the final home and away game of the season. For the winner, the right to finish in 1st spot on the AFL Ladder. A great game, a fitting way to end another great year where there were a lot of goals. The Roos won 17.11 to 16.12.


    1993 Essendon vs Geelong

    Ablett 14 goals out of 19 in a losing side. Salmon kicked 10 of the Bombers 23 goals. Majestic.

    1995

    ANZAC Day Draw between Essendon vs Collingwood


    1999 Round 2 Geelong defeats Bulldogs at Optus Oval 24 goals to 20. Brown nailed 7 for the doggies


    prelim final 1996 Swans vs Dons

    Prelim final 1997 Dogs vs Crows

    1993 Drawn game between Essendon and Carlton where Kernahan only needed a point after the siren to win it but kicked it out of bounds on the full. They played a cracking qualifying final that year too, and the prelim was awesome also between Essendon and the Crows.

    The 1990s had 2 Hawks vs Saints games where the winner came back from being 10 goals down at half time, didnt it?

    Or was one of them 1990s, the other 2000s?

    I know in 1999, the last ever season where they played matches at Waverley you guys erased a 63 point deficit. I didn't think there were two games like that in the 90's although I did notice another high scoring game between the two.

    1992 Grand Final was on first thing this morning when I flicked the telly on. campaigners. Must say it was a bloody good game though, at least for the first half. I knew Eagles dominated the 3rd term and produced some blistering football, but **** they blew us of finals the park. Mesmerising moments that utterly destroyed us in a short amount of time. We were bombarded and it was game over. It's often the case in Grand finals. One. Purple patch and it's done and dusted.

    Crows vs their opponents in 97 and 98. Lions, Power, Hawks and us in 2011 to name a few.

    The 94 Prelim between Geelong and North is worthy of a classic 90's match status.

    Can anyone remember the game/ year West Coast played port at footy park. My only memory at the game was Ben Cousins having a set shot for goal late in the final quarter, but kicked it into the man on the mark Darryl Poole but re-gathered and kicked the goal. Was a close game at the time which West Coast won. I’d love to be able to get a copy of said game somehow

    LMAO, I recall that game. 1998 before the halfway mark of the year. Around April/May. I think Poole also had two shots late on to win it, but missed them both. Someone did at least.
