Thought Brent Daniels was amazing today, he is so busy and I reckon his GPS would be off the charts. He still doesn’t finish his chances but I think that will come, he runs so hard he could almost play in the midfield but love him up forward with his disruption, he’s our little Poppy.
I love him. He's getting right up there in my favourite players. So clean with the contested ball and making space.

Cracking win. Winners all over the ground.

You can see what Aiden Corr brings to the team and why Leon likes him I reckon. Very strong defensively, has good closing speed and clean disposal.

I think he's a nice counterpoint to the taller interceptor types back there.

I was hoping Brisbane would get up. The "redemption road" fairytale run would have been kind of poetic if we could have taken down our last 3 finals conquerers (dogs, tigers, pies) in 3 straight weeks on the way to a first GF.

That would be pretty sweet. Wouldn't mind an Eagles Giants granny.

Last time it happened a few times in a row we got an AFL investigation into the state of Victorian football. If that doesn't say volumes about the priorities of the AFL, nothing will. :D
Ah yes, three glorious years. Also when interstate clubs won from 2001 and 2006, when many were fearing a Victorian club would never hoist the cup again. Good times.

Lotta Vics happy to see interstate side win it.
That's true. I was actually going for Freo in the 2013 GF but Freo fans have made me one of those stereotypical 'anyone but the Dockers/Eagles' WA supporters. They make it hard. I'm sure some of our fans do the same for them. I guess it's not fair to all of them, many are decent, but some are such asses. Anyway I'm waffling lol.

Alot of North people last year and this on the Simmo, Pratty, Brady bandwagon. Well respected past players who have done a great job there l'm sure you agree.

Does North have a real rival nowadays? I get the feeling many don't like the Doggies.
Isn't there still the Essendon thing?

Also I want to make the battle of Tassie with Hawthorn a thing - lock in a game against each other in Launceston and Hobart each year. But that's just me. :D

Hawks rivalry tapered off slightly.
GWS already Swans and Doggies which is good.

I felt similarly for Don Pyke and the Crows. North have always been my second team for some reason, maybe cos they're not as big and obnoxious as some other Vic clubs.

My heart nearly always goes for the non Vic sides ( Swans vs Bulldogs the only exception I recall ) . Love a non Vic side or 2 in the Granny to really feel on board and a part of it .
Likewise, though North and the Dogs are my 'Melbourne teams.' I live in Footscray, about a km from the Whitten Oval.
