Just a random point but I spoke to a member of the coaching staff (low down the rank but a part of it still) and he told me that Eagles wanted to play Richmond in the Grand Final more then anyone else in the final 4 (so moreso then Demons and Collingwood). They just thought we matched up on them well.

Also said the Demons were absolutely cooked. Players came in at quarter time and told the coaches "These guys are absolutely cooked". Even though we were only 29 points up the team knew it was over already
Interesting! Wonder why that was - pushed to extremes maybe just to scrape into the finals, and had nothing left. They had their GF against us a few weeks earlier at Optus and burnt up their petrol tickets.

I too wanted Richmond, maybe in 2019 :)

I watched the preliminary final between Richmond and Collingwood for the first time today. Unfortunately I was overseas when it played out.
At the end of the game as the Richmond team are leaving the arena, one glorious campaigner is holding aloft an Eagles scarf to see them off in style.

dom sheeds left foot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahah
I bought the Blu-ray yesterday and just finished watching it with the 6PR audio. Before Sheed's kick, Hardie said something along the lines of "He has to run around, there's no way he can kick a drop punt from there." You all know what happened next.....

Lesson learned: don't listen to the 6PR audio again.

Did a little part of him sound like he was dying as he called the victory?

Thats gotta be worth wallowing in.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention Hardie barracking for the Magpies, and Karl writing us off after the 1st quarter. "Just look at their body language! This one's over! They're shot!"

Watched it again today because wtf not?

Second half we just seemed to have this steely resolve at every contest. We didn't win them all obviously but the indomitable will of the group seemed to wear Collingwood down to the point the Pies only managed to throw a couple of flurries. Pies looked likely for about 10 minutes of the last hour and the rest was a blue and gold wave that crested with 2.47 left on the clock and finally swept Collingwood to the side.

McGovern. Vardy. Ryan. Sheed.
