I hated that we lost.
Inb4 400 posts blaming the umpires
AFL is Tiger land baby
Roaming Brian still to come
Like: Richmond finally did it!
Like: the great game
Like the Bulldogs in 2016, Tigers took their chance with both hands and made the most of it.
Well done to them.
Adelaide were exposed, and I'm not sure there's much improvement in them from here.
I'd be inclined to say they've peaked, and could head backwards from 2018
It was a pretty boring spectacle.
Learnt: You don't need to be the best team in the completion to win the flag.
Also, being the trending player elevates you drastically in Norm Smith voting. There were at least 3-5 better players than Dusty

Like: Tigers deserved each and every minute of that. Their comeback from around this time last year when they were just sinking dramatically, to now, is incredible
Learn/confirmed: If you play fast footy, don't slow down in the grand final.
Hate: People talking down Dustys game - he wasn't the standout, because Richmond had so many players stand up, but he was around equal best with 4 or 5 others, so he deserves it. Umpiring whinging
Loved - The Killers
Learnt - Flat track bullies win minor premierships. The cream rises to the top every September.
Hated - No more AFL until 2018.
Also 2nd year in a row that it's shown as long as you make the 8, it's all about peaking at the right time. The Tigers 3rd, 4th, and 6th biggest winning margins (out of 18) came in finals.
Hated the finals series as a whole. Boring as ******* bat shit.
Looking forward to the new deal in only 20 short years when the mcg won't be hosting the gf every single year no matter who finishes higher.
Equalisation? There's a good place to start.
Like that soft interstate wins don’t stand up on the GF
Never going to happen so get over it
Richmond are 2017 Premiers!!! Incredible
Liked: Not much to like about this game. Killers were good. Ground looked sensational.
Learnt: Game is not what it used to be. Bruise free footy all day. Game is over and poorly umpired. They do impact flow of game.
Richmond deserved their Premiership.
Hated : The fact Richmond were under pump and a run of 6-7 free kicks many highly doubtful went there way and steadied the ship.
Norm Smith Medal. Adelaides lack of desire to get back into the game...just did not have a crack. Did I mention the umpiring oh yeh three of the worst umpires proved why they are three of the worst umpires.
Summary: Happy for Tigers. They were much hungrier than Crows and deserved victory. Really poor game. Really poorly umpired.
Let's move on to 2018. This year is Toast stick a fork in it!
I learnt there's lots of bitter flogs around who like complaining about shit.
Footy is awesome, if you don't like it why are you here?
Liked: Good to see hard, tough, mongrel football still wins premierships and not front running, flashy bullshit.
Learn't: I wish Port could play that way, might actually beat a top 8 side next year if we did.
Hated: Not much really other than the SA media over hyping the Crows. But that's what you get when you are in a 1.25 team town. Also the season is too short. Could go another month.
Who would you have voted for? Rance early was immense repelling the constant flow into Adelaides forward line and rebounding the ball.
Crows learnt playing in front of a sold out Showdown is nothing compared to a packed MCG. Rabbits in the headlights.
The moment a scrub fringe player from Adelaide player was trash talking Danger I knew that it would result in bad karma for the Crows. Talking as if you've already won the flag usually ends up with pie all over your face.
