    ^^Heatley's first ever game for the Saints in fact. Booted 73 that year, I don't know how WCE didn't give him more of a go when they struggled for Goals in the 3 seasons they had him. Or at least struggled for a regular goal scorer.

    '' Heatley played in 17 of 22 matches in the 1997 AFL Premiership Season home and away rounds in which St Kilda Football Club qualified in first position for the 1997 AFL Finals Series, winning the club’s second Minor Premiership and first McClelland Trophy.[4] ''

    Heatley played in the 1997 AFL Grand Final in which St Kilda was defeated by 31 points. He was the third highest goalkicker in the AFL that year, behind Tony Modra and Saverio Rocca ''

    Had he played in the other 5 games, would have gone close to the ton.

    Heatley was great that year.

    He and Matt Clape (Car 95) had breakout years for other clubs after leaving the Eagles and while I was bloody annoyed I enjoyed watching them play.

    I always thought Ben McKinley was gonna bite us in the bum but he never did anything at NM

    They're shit. One of the main reasons I quit foxtel was the content on fox footy. It's disgustingly lazy for the money paid. It is literally the same 5 programs repeated 5 times over the same day.

    1979 GF on now. Very underrated game in the whole mix of GFs. Absolute full bore.
    Not dissimilar to 2009.

    It was a shame only half a dozen blokes in each team could execute a drop punt, it was tough but the kicking was laughable.

    I like the old stuff, but they should bar anything post 2000. Its simply not interesting, to me.
    Last week I switched over, some random H&A game from 2004, bulldogs v Eagles or something. Seriously?

    That was seriously awesome. I'd forgotten how far behind St Kilda were in that match. That goal when Plugger ran in to open goal and kicked the ball full force at the pensioners behind the goals was alternately terrible and hilarious. Also loved him giving them the "Up Yours" signal after the Saints won by a point.

    I like watching old games from the early 80's at the old suburban grounds. Like Fitzroy and South Melbourne, these were great times in footy when supporters stood in the rain, no seats, and they didnt move all day. Just fixed to the spot and on their team. They did replays of "The Winners" last year but stopped when Drew Morphett passed away. I hope they revisit this show with another host because it was a great hour of viewing. Seems a shame to stop it because we lost Drew.

    Was great too see Fox replay the 1992 GF on the weekend. What a day that was, big p1ss up at the Glasshouse afterwards. Everything else almost a distant memory seeing its 26 years ago now. Time flies, but I still will never forget Peter Matera that day, man what a game he played. And Wilsons over the head goal, killa.

    I really enjoy when they show their 'çlassic matches'. Ít's great to see the old players again I grew up watching.

    Good call. They've shown some of The Winners lately with Drew hosting but I hope they continue to do it. Would be great if they could find old VFA, SANFL, WAFL games as well. I'd love to see for instance Stephen Michael at his best. Only got to see him in a few SOO games.

    For instance, show me more of this. This looks like a deadset clinic by Michael

    This 1986 State of Origin game is unbelievable. Only question is why is BT playing for Victoria?

    It's actually been great this off-season for the first time... ever. They finally realised people don't wanna watch the season just gone - from start to finish - over and over again. I reckon it must have something to do with Name A Game going under and perhaps a transfer of licensing deals. Imagine if you could get all these old games on demand on Kayo? I'd sign up in a flash.
