I haven't watched a lot of VFL, but the few times I've watched I've thought Goldsack looked ok. Far from his best, and age definitely looks to have caught up with him. But he looks as if he could fill a gap if necessary. It's obviously his last year.

I've just always had a theory that a player who knows it is their last game, can be a very dangerous prospect. They have nothing to worry about in terms of their body, and they have nothing to lose. If we copped another defensive injury, and Moore is playing forward, then I'd strongly consider Goldsack as a 'break glass in case of emergency' type selection. Surely he has to be fitter than last year coming off a knee reco.

Say well we are F**ked Then
Dave no sure you were around, or old enough 1990?

We were up by 40 points! At 3/4 time. That’s 40 points.

And all through that last quarter I kept looking at the MCG scoreboard clock.

It’s the Collingwood way. It’s never quite over till it’s over. In victory or not in victory.

Sometimes it’s not over even after the final siren sounds.

They used to say about South Sydney Rabbitohs that you were a real fan of you went to their game and it was close and they somehow got up and won, you’d go home to watch the replay and still think the Rabbitohs will lose.

I was 4 Years Old so I don't have any Memory of that Time Sadly.

Agree. In the GF last year when we built that Early Big Lead in the 1st Qtr I was not confident of the Result ever

I was thinking more along the lines of the umpire allowing 2 marks and two kicks and a goal after the siren because he didn’t hear it.

I knew it was over when Lethal walked down the boundary and signalled to the crowd. We just sang the song over and over.

What a day.

Lethal is always my barometer.

Leigh knows.

Was a great great great day and a huge relief.

Being there for it was wonderful embracing so many fellow Magpies - we didn’t know each other but we knew other.

Then back to Vic Park. Lived there for a week :)

I was younger then :)
