So sick of Bulldogs fans/players and indeed Chris Grant himself complaning about being hard done by. It's easy to say in hindsight, but the slow motion footage clearly shows that Grant hit the man, not the ball.
The fact the original tribunal panel (at that time) let that incident fly (possibly because C.Grant was regarded as a major Brownlow fancy at the time ) was disgraceful, and I cannot fault Ian Collins for appealing the decision), the Chas Brownlow medal is (and should forever should be) awarded for the Fairest and Best Player in the league.
Personally I have always felt Corey McKernan was screwed out of a Brownlow far more on 1996 for a non illegible offence anymore.
The ongoing bitterness of Chris Grant and refusal to accept responsibility over what he did has always sadly diminished me in the eyes of a neutral supporter who always thought he is a bona champion of the game.
