These guys weren't even tipped to make the 8 pre-season. Mitchell and Priddis gone meant a lot of experience, as well as Brownlow medals went out the window. The most important and influential player for WCE, and one of if not the best ruckmen in the comp goes down injured in Nit Nat. Gaff, an ALL-Australian and a bloke that was tipped to be runner up in the Brownlow misses a lot of football due to his punch on the young Freo lad. And Sheppard, a player who emerged the last few years as one of the key defenders in the game goes down in the first qualifier against Collingwood. 5 goals down in the first quarter, the ghosts of 2015 re-visited, a host of missed chances late on yet they still find a way to win despite all of this. Balls of steel and a mind like no other. I think this win is as good as the Doggies in 2016 and as good as any other premiership in the history of VFL/AFL.


West Coast Eagles - Could not be beaten. Mentality of a warrior.

Was this the best win or the most hardest for any side to obtain in the history of footy?

It's probably my favourite due to the Trump-esque nature of winning the whole thing even when so many tipped us to:

1. miss the finals
2. make the finals but fail in September
3. lose to collingwood at home
4. lose to melbourne at home
5. lose the grand final because tHe EaGlEs CaNt PlAy At ThE mCg

No premiership team has won a grand final with the equivalent of the injuries we had.
Port 2004 had similar outs. Primus (gun ruck and club captain) and Josh Francou (gun midfielder who nearly won a Brownlow) played 1 game between them that year
