A coincidence threat? ....After being beaten by Richmond in a GF in 1967... it took us 40 years to win a GF?
Negative ones?

Last time Western troops fully withdrew from Afghanistan we lost a grand final with aggressive ball movement to a dominant key forward

I think it had more to do with the fact we were rarely challenged during that season, but when we were finally challenged we didn't know how to respond to it.
Dont know if it has anything to do with threatening omens but...

perhaps too many games like the one we just have had against West Coast dulled us ... 18 times we scored 100 or more and never lost if we scored 100. The week before finals we beat the West Coast scoring 24.20

I suspect it was a culmination of players playing sore and being wasteful, almost reckless with our ball use. A degree of arrogance? We always seem to have a heap of points but we would score that much misses didn't seem to matter.

I wonder how we would have gone if there was a week rest before the finals like there is now. I suspect it would have freshened tired bodies
