Would've been interesting to see how those off the play calls on Grimes would go down in front of an Ess/Carl/Coll crowd...or the majority of umpire calls for that matter.

What a piss poor grand final.

Really found it hard to give two s**ts throughout the entire game, and I felt nothing towards the end when they were all celebrating.
Bizarre.
I waited for the cheers for Pickett, who I thought was very good. Interesting how a player can symbolise so much. In a GF it's surely about risk taking. Leon played it safe by selecting Whitfield and Davis while Dimma took a risk on Pickett. Strong and bold is the mantra. And the players took him in and trusted him with the ball and he was fantastic. Davis as Captain made the wrong decision I think, allowing ego to influence him. He needed to trust Leon would select someone who would go full bore.

Rance makes no difference when every ball i50 is a hack kick by the opposition
Actually that is when Rance does make a difference as he zones off and marks most of them. It turned out okay because Grimes can do the same. Rance has issues when you make him defend one on one all day with no support.

no s**t, any particular incident or just an accumulation of bad behaviour?
There was something that happened but I can’t remember what. A mate of mine knows a few of his cousins. He’s a deadshit anyway. Toby doesn’t have much of a relationship with him and doesn’t really want one.
