is that just the crowd or is it around one of the team's benches?

great photo
It's the West Adelaide bench. That's Jack Oatey (West's coach at the time) doing the splits.
The offending goalpost was chopped down later that night by some West Adelaide players (including Neil Kerley) who jumped the fence into Adelaide Oval. It ended up on the BBQ at the West Adelaide wake and what was left of it after that was hung in either West's clubrooms or behind the bar in a pub in West's district. Sorry, can't remember the exact location. A classic SANFL legend though.

The picture of Bernie Smith's reaction when he was at home and he'd been informed of his 1952 Brownlow win. It might have been staged but it was a beauty. Couldn't find it though.
