I was equally distraught. If my memory serves me correctly, I cut up Malcolm Blights Scanlons footy card because he beat Knights in the Brownlow. He was my favourite Hawk
As a youngster in the 70s, I was absolutely besotted with Peter Knights...I think I cried when he lost the Brownlow (too young to remember 71)

Really feels like a changing of the guard with this and last years draft picks, some new elite talent starting to come through - feels like the modern kids are more ready for the game or the game is more ready for them
Every game with these kids playing well makes me want to see Downie, DGB and our other young players more and more.

That was 2 years later, in 78, the Blight one.

He came second twice, first in 76, to Graham Moss. That was the one I cried about.

I was 11 in 78...big boys don't cry. ;)

We aren't allowed to acknowledge anything potentially positive about Essendon, it's rule #1
Meh, I watch and discuss footy. But you’re right - some of the old McGrath calls on here are embarrassing. Actually think bombers putting together some solid youth - Ridley, McGrath and now Cox and Perkins
