I actually reckon it was playing a man down. Was it Prestigiacomo that sat out a GF because he wasn't 100%? You wonder if a fit player off the bench would have done more.
I don't disagree, but at the same time it's a big call to bench a player like Ablett in a grand final who could come up clutch even injured. Tactical decisions like hiding danger at full forward when the game was there to be won hurt more

Footy is a great game but it has a serious dynasty problem. Brisbane 3 in a row, then it was Geelong’s turn, then Hawthorn, now Richmond.
We've been unlucky, in a sense, to be doing our rebuilding in an era of compromised drafts, and significant manipulation of the player market, which has seen the clubs which rebuilt during our stronger years, stay strong because of those lists ...

... however our current list is very balanced, and will be hitting its prime "real soon now", so with a little refinement and tinkering, we should be in with a shot as some of these teams start to age, or fall off the cliff into their own rebuilds.

Time to be optimistic, and hail Satan!

Yeah their whole forward line failed after quarter time.

So Cats lose Ablett and probably Harry Taylor. Selwood, Tuohy, Henderson, Hawkins, Danger all over 30. Stanley and Blcavs 30 next year. Cameron must have been off his tits when he signed up to that. But it's okay because they are after Shuan Higgins. Hope he likes rebuilds.
The cats are soon reaching the fall of their era, been impresssive but time waits for no man

They will fall off a cliff very quickly

Do they really need to be bringing all their own children up when getting their medals.

It isn't about your kids right now. You should be giving the attention to the kids handing over the medals, not having your children walking in the photography frame ruining the shot for their parents.
Yeah it's not a good look. Leave the kids off the field, it's not about them.
