Giamts were bloody sensational. Their defensive work was fantastic all day, they pressured the Dogs into mistakes all day and their tackling was excellemt.
Whitfield gave them run and great ball use throughout, thought Hopper was fantastic at the contest.
Mummy had much more influence than I would have thought going in.
The real star was Tubsy Greene.Clutch goals and clever isage, big tackles, a heap of niggle, some almost but not quite screamers, giving away the odd free.
They cop a lot of rubbish about not performing in finals and get painted as some soulless club, but they have never had the luck other teams have had with injuries late in the year and their retention has generally been pretty could despite Vic clubs waving the chequebook around every season.
Nothing against the Dogs, but rapt for the Giants, they had all the Dogs' stars in check and could have won by more.

There was a comment in an article made that there was lots of pressure on Woosha and the Dons about performance, expectations, and where they finished, again not winning a final.
The article asked, “Why aren’t the bulldogs and bevo under the same scrutiny?”
It’s a great point given their recent premiership.
Err...because of their recent premiership?

Sorry but there’s a lot of projection in this post. If you’d lost badly your coach would have been given the Tijuana because your lot has underperformed.

Fair play to the Giants, and Leon who I like. They won fair and square. The reality is though that Bevo delivered when his chance presented then fronted up this year with the youngest finals side. He has credits in the bank and time on his side.

Something needs to be done about the umpiring department. They need some serious training.

It is quite clear they simply do not understand the game or the rules that they are meant to be enforcing.

If it is no.2 it is Foote.

Absolute numpty.

Daughter at the game. AFL funds has provided GWS flags under every seat.

Ask yourself if the AFL will that for your club
Who’s the liar?

You, or your daughter?

Because I was at the game, in a Giants supporters bay and guess what; NO FLAGS under the seats.

No Bulldogs supporters I saw after the game with a free flag; nor did I see them discarded after the game around the precinct.

So; I ask again; who’s the lying POS in the Joffaboy household?

There was a flag on every seat in multiple bays. Orange ones in ours, charcoal ones in others. We gathered them all up in our bay and put them up the top for the kids that might want them rather than just get trod in etc and go to waste. Saw many kids walking out with 10+ each and good on them.

Where were you?

There were none in any of the bays around me.

203 & 204 had flags.
May have targeted the areas the cameras pick up most.
What’s the big deal? The AFL is trying to get new supporters interested in a new sport. it’s not as simple as trying to get AFL diehards off the couch and to the game.
No deal from me. Just saw the other post saying someone was lying, which wasn't true. I'd be happy if my kid got a free flag. A bit wasteful in the bays full of Bulldog fans, but no skin off my nose.

We have just got to target this waste of space the next time we play. We can let him do this most time we play them. His hit on Caleb, his stops to the face of Dalhaus and now his gouging of the face of the Bont and his stomping on Wood. Not to mentioned his court case for kicking someone in the head. I am disappointed someone did not fly the flag yesterday. I know we were a lot younger and do not have any player that would stoop to the low acts of this piece of tripe. Six weeks suspension coming up I will be cheering when this happens.

Feel the same way about Bont? Or are we choosy with our outrage?

Greene is gone and will be gone for the 1st 6 or so next season to. No place for it in the game.

But you lot aren't/werent saints.

Bont was probably bit lucky but there was no thuggery in the incident. Greene has football ability but chooses to be a DH on numerous occasions and has just cost GWS any chance they had of beating the lions. Sorry but his the only player in the AFL that I cannot stomach from his strut, to head wobble and his antics.

Late and High. Definate thuggery.

You would love him in your side, most of the time.

It's a very obvious case of racism when people fall over themselves to call NN a thug for retaliating over a hair pulling incident, but Greene repeatedly gets the "boy shucks howdy he is a gutsy player, sure he's a bit rough but you'd love him on your team" treatment.

The guy is the dirtiest flog to lay AFL in some time.

Are you kidding?

Everyone is going after Tobes. And IF he has eye guaged someone he should be gone.

But on the actual evidence without any pre determination he appears to be innocent of it.

The black eye was from when he was kicked earlier in the game by a team mate and all the footage of the incident show that at no stage Bont, or his team mates react as if he was eye guaged.

As for the cuts on the neck?
Well A that's not his eye and B at least it wasn't a broken larynx.

Greene has been constantly defended and lauded by the press. Robbo historically has struggled to say a bad word about him. But I still remember how absolutely definitive they were over the Nic Nat tackling incident. Robbo arms flailing, getting in a huff.

Also, lol at you (General Giant) actually defending this.

"Gaff's fist never actually hit Brayshaw's jaw, it was the force of his chest flying up into his mouth. The video evidence was a refractory trick, caused by light bouncing off the inner lens of the camera making Gaff's fist appear closer to Brayshaw's face". That's how you sound.
