I always remember that footage from the 1992 GF when the Geelong fan with the mo gives the finger to the girl holing up her Eagles scarf after a goal.
Good on her, didn't even react, just lost in the moment.

#4 – The other Chick moment

The situation:
Q4, 3:25 remaining. West Coast 12.13.85 lead Sydney 12.12.84

With just minutes left to play in the Grand Final, Sydney have possession and are looking for any score. They decide on a weight of numbers approach, and begin a raid of long kicks forward.

The moment: Sydney receive a free kick in the backline and want to go long at all costs. Brett Kirk marks strongly on the wing, before playing on miles over his mark (typical COLA cheating) and handballing to Ted Richards in space. Richards is met by a corralling Daniel Chick, tired from his iconic heroics mere moments before, and sidesteps him with ease. Streaming down the wing, Richards takes a bounce and is set to launch a long ball inside 50. Unbeknownst to him, Daniel Chick is a rabid wolverine who will not be denied the tackle he so desperately craves, with the former Hawk chasing down the Swan in a Grand Final sprint that puts Cyril Rioli vs Lewis Jetta to shame.

Chick arrives at the exact right moment, tackling Richards just as he sets himself to kick inside 50, and forces the ball out on the full. What a let off with just minutes to play.

A great moment. I was about 10 rows back on the boundary right near the tackle. Chicky was actually concussed afterwards because Richards landed on his head. He needed to be helped up by the trainers (and I think maybe also off the field). But this is missed on the TV coverage. In the video you posted at 0:30 you can see he is looking worse for wear in the background.

I thought it was Richards who was worst after that chase. I was also about 10 rows back from that in the Great Southern Stand. Bloody hot in the sun that day!

I'm almost certain it was Chick who copped the knock to the head. In the video above you can see Richards get to his feet with Chick still on the ground behind him. Richards may have been slow to move on, but I think he was just absolutely spent.

I think they were both pretty groggy. It’s not shown on to but I vividly remember Richards trying to walk and needing two trainers to help him. Chick probably had a bit of attention then run it off.

Who knows my memory is skewed and there doesn’t seem to be much footage of it.

It’s such a shame that so much footage goes to waste on grand final and not included in DVD’s. They should do a proper edit post game and get more angles and improve the footage rather than just the one shown on tv.

I know. My turn came up sooner than I expected and I’ve been busy since badge posted his review. Should be up late tonight
All good :) If anyone needs more time, don't hesitate to request it. Obviously don't want it to drag on too long, though.

It took me a bit of time to convince myself to put this game here as one of our greatest ever games. Truth be told, the game viewed in isolation probably struggles to make the top 50 of all time. As a contest it certainly doesn't belong in the top 10. However, in context, it's comfortably one of the most significant results in our history and arguably should have already been written about by now.

1994 AFL Grand Final : The Forgotten Premiership

Before we get to the game though a quick history lesson for those either not born or too young to remember.

After breaking Victorian hearts in 1992 we were unable to repeat the dose in what was an incredibly even 1993 bowing out to eventual premiers, Essendon, in the semi-final. Despite that the fear was real and after the 1993 season a decision was made to introduce a second WA team into the AFL for the 1995 season. West Coast had established themselves as a powerhouse and 1993 was seen as a wasted opportunity.

The road to atonement in 1994 got off to a shaky start with a narrow 3 point loss to reigning premier Essendon at the MCG and just as a string of 3 wins on the trot looked to have us back on track we were demolished by Hawthorn to the tune of 71 points at Subiaco. It would put us a game behind early competition pacesetters, Melbourne, with a clutch of other teams with a share of 2nd.

From there we would win 11 of our next 13 with our only losses being a 4 point loss to the Crows in Adelaide and the Andrew Tranquilli game against Collingwood at the MCG. We took top spot in round 8 and held that position until late in the season when another loss to Hawthorn in Round 20 and a 64 point thumping from Carlton at Princes Park in Round 22 eventually saw us relinquish top spot temporarily with 1 round to go. A final round belting of Footscray coupled with a surprise loss for Carlton at the hands of Essendon saw us regain top spot and win the minor premiership with 16 wins a game clear of Carlton with 15. There would be a sizeable gap to North, Geelong, Footscray and Hawthorn on 13 wins.

For the first time in AFL history there would be a top 8 with Melbourne and Collingwood taking those spots on 12 wins. Richmond would also finish with 12 wins but were relegated to 9th on percentage and thus creating Premiershipmond. Reigning premiers Essendon despite their last round heroics to gift us top spot would finish 10th with 11 wins

Unlike the finals system we have now, the first week of the finals was a tad more convoluted than we have now with 1st v 8th, 2nd v 7th, 3rd v 6th and 4th v 5th. In addition, for the first time finals could be played outside Victoria beyond the first week up to and including the prelim finals (but not the GF as I'm sure you'll be shocked to hear). This gave us a simple equation - beat 8th placed Collingwood in week 1 then have a rest before a home prelim to earn a Grand Final spot. Easy right.

Due to a redevelopment of Subiaco ahead of Fremantle's introduction, our finals were played at the WACA. On a windy Sunday afternoon, we looked in control of a scrappy game until a fast finishing Collingwood nearly stole the game in the dying stages with a 6 goal final quarter but fell 2 points short (11.16:82 to 12.8:80) as Mick McGuane famously dropped a chest mark inside F50 close to the final siren. In other games 7th placed Melbourne stunned Carlton (2nd) consigning the Blues to a cut throat semi final whilst North Melbourne (3rd) earned the other preliminary final spot after defeating Hawthorn in the first ever extra time final. Geelong would beat Footscray in their final before going on to put Carlton out in straight sets the following week and then sneak past North when Gary Ablett kicked a goal in the dying seconds to win by 6 points in the prelim.

Meanwhile we were preparing for a home preliminary final against a surging Melbourne fresh off resounding wins over Carlton and Footscray to keep their fairytale of breaking (a then) 30 year premiership drought alive. Sound familiar. In a result that would be repeated a quarter of a century later, Melbourne's hopes were crushed by 65 points - 16.21:117 to 8.4:52.

In the lead up to the GF, Peter Matera would poll 28 Brownlow votes which in any other year of his career would have been enough to win but unfortunately by him Greg Williams of Carlton would win with a then record 30 votes. To be fair, Williams was widely regarded as a deserved winner and Matera's high tally was seen as a bit of a surprise.

Enough with the background, onto the main event - West Coast who had been the dominant side of 1994 along with Carlton against sentimental favourites, Geelong in their 3rd GF in 6 years attempting to break a then 31 year drought. Unlike West Coast who were assured of a finals berth well before seasons end, Geelong were outside the 8 with 6 rounds to go and had win 5 of their last 6 to qualify. With 3 pulsating finals wins they took strong momentum into the decider but the consensus was they'd need to start well given the Eagles would be fresher having had a weeks rest before their prelim.

The game would be one of contrasting styles - Geelong were the most attacking team in the competition scoring almost 110 points per game well ahead of West Coast with just under 95 points per game which was 7th in the league and better than only Collingwood amongst top 8 sides. Defensively however, West Coast conceded a league lowest 71 points per game which was almost 10 points lower than the next best (Carlton) and well below Geelong who leaked over 95 points per game ranking them 8th and the worst of the finals sides. Could Geelong break the shackles and if they did would the Eagles have enough firepower to go with them in a shootout.

Quarter 1 :

Grand Final specialist, Tony Evans, drew first blood with a snap from a boundary throw in. Soon after key playmaker, Garry Hocking, would get a nasty cork to the thigh in a collision with John Worsfold and had to leave the ground. Whilst he would return intermittently throughout the game he had little impact. Goals to Chris Lewis from a set shot and Shane Bond on the run had the Eagles opening up an ominous 20-2 lead halfway through the first quarter. Paul Couch would pounce on a loose clearing kick to snap Geelong's first against the run of play which seemed to settle the Cats. With Michael Mansfield doing an outstanding job in defense for Geelong and Peter Riccardi quelling Matera's influence the momentum was shifting ever so slightly.

John Barnes then started taking marks around the ground and Geelong were surging with goals to Riccardi and Andrew Wills. When Gary Ablett outpointed Brennan in a marking contest and kicked a goal after playing on, the Eagles were suddenly down 20-26. Both sides missed a couple of opportunities before star wingman, Chris Mainwairing hobbled off with a back complaint in the shadows of quarter time. Another Chris, of the Waterman variety, would replace him and had an immediate impact but it was Kemp who had been BOG that would find Brett Heady inside 50 with a neat pass. The shot for goal sailed through as the quarter time siren rang out.

West Coast 4.3:27 v Geelong 4.4:28

Quarter 2 :


Leigh Tudor missed a running shot at goal to open the scoring in the second quarter and from the ensuing kick in we moved the ball the length of the ground for Peter Wilson to kick our 5th after taking a mark inside 50. We were back in front and would not relinquish the lead again. Jason Ball, who was busy up forward, hit the post with a snap and then missed another after Geelong failed to clear the ball from the kick in. They weren't so lucky the next time as again West Coast pushed the ball back inside 50 for Wilson to kick his second in a row.

Soon after, in one of the games rare genuine highlights Billy Brownless would sit on McIntosh's head to mark and goal to bring the margin back to 5 points (41-36). A couple more behinds to us as we failed to convert field position led to a doomed short kick in by Ken Hinkley which was intercepted by Evans and put back over his head to push us out to a 12 point lead. Geelong were on the ropes but we were unable to land a knockout punch. A string of 5 consecutive behinds was finally broken when Evans got his hands to another errant kick in and Sumich pounced on the loose ball to kick his first and stretch the lead to a game high 23 points

West Coast 8.12:60 v Geelong 5.7:37

Quarter 3 :

Both teams traded behinds to begin the third as we continued to waste opportunities. It would be Geelong to strike first when Brownless marked next to the behind post and converted after running around to open the angle. After being 6.5 we'd drifted to 8.14 and for all our dominance had only a 17 point lead to show for it. Ball would snap a clever goal from 25 only for Brownless to answer shortly after. Another 5 minutes would pass without another goal to either side although we were still collecting behinds at a frightful rate as Geelong held on grimly closing in on 3/4 time. By this stage Mainwairing had returned to the field and light rain was falling

Like a python crushing it's prey we were slowly suffocating the Cats and with the scoreline at 9.17 to 7.9 after a 2.10 to 2.2 run either side of half time something had to give. Enter Dean Kemp. Pouncing on a lose ball at half forward, Kemp ran through the 50m arc and kicked the goal that burst the dam wall.
Heady kicked another moments after and when Sumich had a rare 1 on 1 win against Stephen O'Reilly to mark and goal just before 3/4 time Geelong were all but spent.

West Coast 12.18:90 v Geelong 7.12:54

Quarter 4 :


Any faint hopes Geelong had were put to rest by a pair of goals to Waterman who moved forward after Mainwairing returned. Party time had arrived and goals to Ball, Evans, Kemp and Bond saw the lead balloon out 72 points halfway through the last. After struggling to land the knockout blow for so long, the end came quickly, in a 15-20 minute patch either side of the last break we put on 9.2 to 0.4. The game was done.

Some more behinds to both sides along with goals to Banfield and Lewis as well as a consolation 4th goal to Brownless (who was Geelong's only goal scorer after quarter time) saw the lead to blow out to a near record 80 points

We'd one our 2nd premiership in the last 3 years after entering the competition only 8 years earlier.

West Coast 20.23:143 defeated Geelong 8.15:63

That was an epic finals series. Drawn final, single figure margins, favourite out in straight sets and a kick after the siren. Amazing that people hardly talk about that season.

It really is the forgotten Premiership. Even the club doesn't talk about it much and memorabilia barely exists. Took years and years for a Victory Pack to be released, and even then it was bundled with a re-release of 1992. So now I own two copies of the 1992 finals series.

Pretty sure it's the only Premiership jumper I don't own too. They released a 20th anniversary one for 1992 but not for 1994 :(

But it was the game that really stamped our dominance of the early 90s and makes the early 90s side our best ever.

BigVic we'll give you until 6am tomorrow mate. Otherwise you miss your pick and Forward Press can go.


Gonna say this here - I'll give a bit of leeway for the first round, but from round two onwards, unless you specifically request an extension (24 hours max), then your pick will be forfeit. Just leaves everyone hanging, needlessly.

Let me set the scene...


Split Enz's Neil Finn told himself 'History Never Repeats' - but does it? The Cats are quite a good chance to knock off the Eagles at home. History is on their side; last season with the backs to the proverbial wall, Geelong spanked the Eagles to the tune of 75 points.

Dare I say it? .... No Judd No Eagles.
Theres too many passengers for us. Look at the body language and the attack on the ball by half the players and its lacking desperation.
game over

75+ easy

looking like it could even be 100+ :eek:
Oh you think we can make up a 7 goal deficit at a foreign ground in a half with a 2/3 goal breeze against us in the next quarter? Im sorry - youre after the Not a snow flakes chance in hell board
I told you geelong would beat them, and weagles would be in pain in melbourne
Looking at the scoreline, it's really quite obvious Judd carries the whole team. What's even more sad is the eagles rely on a Melbourne kid to carry the whole state of WA. Without Judd, the eagles would no doubt be struggling to make the 8.
Final siren:





You campaigners know what happened next (week, when we also came back from a long way down against Carlton at home).

Round 10, 2006 - Geelong vs West Coast

Do I even need to add anything?

- No Chris Judd
- Lost to them by 75 points last year
- Down by 54 halfway into the third quarter
- HUNTERRRRRRR kicking the winning goal
- Matt Priddis' debut game

In my opinion the finest non-finals win by us, and unfortunately the last time we also won at Kardinia Park. The win that gave us the belief for a flag, the win that (almost) stopped the Geelong dynasty before it even begun, and the win where our future Brownlow medallist made his debut.
