Did they have different costumes planned for if they lost the grand final

Not to my mind. He's been very very good for a long time but plenty of others had higher peaks and a long career.

I confess to be torn ahaha.

Given how many hidings he's given us over the years as part of Geelong, I'd desperately like to write him off lol.

I can't get past my hurt :(

Valleys. Chelsea.
Does Selwood have claims on 'GOAT' midfielder?
No, very good player but not in the elite status of midfielders I have seen(circa 1999 onwards), would be behind the likes of Michael Voss, Nathan Buckley, Simon Black, Chris Judd, Ben Cousins, Mark Ricciuto, Sam Mitchell, Gary Ablett Jnr, Scott Pendlebury IMO.

Of that list Selwood's playing style most closely resembles Vossy but would take Vossy in a heartbeat over Selwood.

Selwood was a constant force at the coal face, contest after contest. One of the best at it, like Blacky.

But if my team was down by 16 points at 3 quarter time and I was looking for a mid to go ballistic, grab the game by the scruff and turn the tide, there are quite a few I’d want before Selwood.

Voss, Ablett, Buckley, Hird, Judd are an easy 5, there would be more.

Amazing career but more a club legend than an AFL legend. Even then he is probably still behind a few as their best ever midfielders let alone best ever player

Chris Scott seems to have forgotten that Michael Voss is the best player he has seen. Pity he missed the re-union.

Selwood has been a very good player for a long time, it's unfortunate this his true legacy will be his signature "shoulder shrug" which arguably has tainted an entire generation of footballers that have come after him.
That’s what I’ll remember him for. Getting the good bloke narrative these past few weeks but I can’t forgive him for spreading this blight of a tactic throughout the code
