funny you mentioned that. Richmond were on track to score 101 points had it been full 20 minute quarters?They were on track to kick 101 points if they played full minutes, so in a way, yes. The other two grand finals, Richmond scored 100 points.
And yes, not all grand finals result in a team scoring 100 points. It's why I also talked about finals in general. My point is attacking sides win more games of football as they generate more chances to win and back their defence to be able to stand up when they need to. Lyon protects his defence by playing... defensively, which means his forwardline doesn't get enough of the ball to win finals where it's harder to score.
Go look at the stats in the 2019 season as well. As those were 20 minute quarters too. No team averaged 100 points a game in attack. Only 2 teams averaged 90 points in attack and both of them finished top 2 and didn't ame the grand final. And yes I'm talking about Brisbane and geelong.
