After destroying the competition in Season 31, it was fair enough to expect us to have a premiership hangover of sorts. What eventuated early in the season (culminating in the league’s best-ever team win streak) was something to behold.
We battled through the last part of pandemic lockdowns and I felt like we rocked up as best we could through the entire season. I showed some signs of fray as the season wore on, but know that my love for the club had not (and has not) diminished.
In Season 32, we welcomed a new face in Hate , who proved an astute acquisition for us. He’s a bloody great poster and we’re fortunate to have him on board. We also welcomed back club hall-of-famer cats2rise, who settled back in like that old piece of furniture you can’t quite bear to throw onto the hard rubbish pile.
The rookie class of S32 was… explosive. @pickitt settled in really well I felt, after a rather high velocity start. Bluelegs is a class poster and I’m really looking forward to seeing him come back for another crack in S33.
We are such a strong club, but that doesn’t mean that departures don’t still make us cry. Looking at you pantskyle you big poo poo head.
We had some incredible on-field results in Season 32, in addition to the historical winning streak. We found ourselves an EKA winner (he’s gone now, so yeah), a Fred Medal winner (Proper Gander) and we managed to get Tarks to break his own INSANE record for career goals by cracking 1,000 goals. Surely this won’t be matched.
Losing a prelim is never a great way to end a season, but I’m not too fussed personally. I just loved hanging out with you all.
Personally, it’s been a really tricky year and I’ve been in and out of BigFooty. What keeps me coming back is my sense of connection to this club and to you all. I thank you to those who have supported me all season in one way or another. You’re all bloody legends.
I’m sorry this is late. Life happened.
