Round 8 2013 vs Norf Melbourne
Inaugural Brad Scott Week
In a really disappointing year for the club, this week and game was potentially the only good thing to come out of it.
The West Coast BigFooty Board’s complete trolling of Brad Scott and Norf has the potential to completely blow up in our faces but oh was it so glorious, it could not have gone better.
First the Brad Scott avatars that took over this website were nothing short of extraordinary.
Then Nic Nat absolutely destroyed Majak Daw despite the billing by the media of some sort of heavyweight ruck battle.
Finally we saw one of the greatest plays of all time where Adam Selwood drew a characteristic free kick for a high tackle and sent it long to the top of the goal scare where Nic flew over the pack to take a mark at the death to ruin Brad’s day.
We continued Brad Scott week in almost all Norf games following but it never really had the same shine as the original.
I can’t be bothered searching for it but if you can find the original Game Day thread and Brad Scott avatars thread, then you’re in for a good time if you weren’t there to experience it at the time.
He was also BOG in a Grand Final we won by a point. That's what he'll be remembered for, not a performance at the end of his career during a finals series we weren't serious contenders in.
Round 3, 2003 I have vague memories of us trouncing St Kilda. First win I clearly remember was the one when Judd destroyed Brisbane at the Gabba.What is the first Eagles win people remember seeing?
Mine was Round 13 2001 against Melbourne, a huge upset considering how garbage we were that year.
