We were better in 98 than 99 ironically as Bombers would have done us. (99)

98 a coaching and senior player disaster.
They couldn’t even beat Carlton
Reckon Arch woulda been up on murder charges if * done us and it was two Granny’s in a row
aw yeah thanks again D.wallis

Still hate going back to that day. In my time following the club I've seen 3 GFs and plenty of great sides, but 1998 was arguably the best and most balanced side we've had. The only thing that makes it in any way bearable, is the fact we didn't really deserve it in 1999, so we got something back from the footy Gods...
Don't think any club ever deserves a flag. You have to earn them.

* beat us, they finished on top, with a much better % in the season.

I'm not saying we couldn't have beaten them, but again, it's simply wrong when the poster said we killed 99.

We didn't.

For mine * blew 99 like we blew 98. Anyway, all in hindsight mate so all good.

BTW isn't that Cart gone?

Last year or so the girl asked me if I wanted a coffee about 10 times in 20 minutes as I ventured our facility as I hadn't seen it......unless I'm a chameleon and she didn't know talking to the same person every single time it was kinda frustrating! ha.

Oh yes I'm with you mate.

Where's the 98 one though? Yeah I know.......(I remember thinking at half time we've blown this, knowing they hadn't fired a shot but had talent to do so)
That’s when I headed to the Arthouse one pub in town where no one even knew there was a game on. Even that lot knew to give me a wide birth that arvo night

Yeah I had a run in with Police that night.

I never do, but I used the Police cars speaker (they were apprehending someone else) to announce Roos blew the Grand Final and I'm not happy (different words) at about 11pm in Salamanca.

Was asked to remove myself from the vehicle and was apprehended.

I did immediately and said I was really sorry and no excuse for my behaviour, and they let me go with a massive caution......top cops, they even laughed when I explained my misery leading to poor judgement!! ha

Add me as another who sat through the game at the G and have never watched it since.

Went to the Sunday session at Arden St the next day and was mildly comforted by the fact that the players looked as angry about it as I felt.


They had to be dragged out of the Social Club for us waiting on the oval. Remember someone burning a crows scarf as well.

me too, and went to Arden Street after the game just to hear that prick playing the Adelaide theme song as he drove up and down Macaulay Rd, and yes never watched it again, I have tried once or twice but never got to the bounce of the ball

Can identify with this.

The Constabulary declined to lock me up in the *wee* hours, literally, after suggesting that there were better places to urinate than the Royal Parade tram tracks.

Can recall that I woke up on Sunday at around midday with 60 to 70 remaining “Admit One” tickets in my coat pocket, the prevailing alcohol currency at the Arden St after party.

I should be so lucky.:rolleyes:

The one and only time I ever got pinched for that it was straight back to the station, stripped down to my jocks & singlet and in to the tank.

Pack. Of. campaigners.
