Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

So in the 2018 Second Preliminary Final somehow the wooden spooners beat the Premiers? How does that work? Oh well, at least we all now get to witness this glorious clip show from the most hilarious game of 2018.

Let me set the scene.

Melbourne are the roaring favourites. Each time they score a goal the screens will cut the the Demons fans in Melbourne, imagine if they got held goalless to half time. Imagine.

Jordan Lewis was kind enough to score us our first goal

Comical

I wish I could get paid to be bad at football and embarrass an entire state

:moustache:

Gee

It's always a good time when you're so good that you start accidentally scoring goals

We also love it when the opposition are so shell-shocked that they forget the rules

Goodwin: "Yeah look boys, we're cooked here and Clayton is an ugly campaigner. So there's no winners from our camp"

Our boy, Flyin' can play footy

Biggest game of your life. Preliminary final. Whole country watching. You get caught holding the ball twice in a row in the same chase and the second one is by a fatboy who's pregame ritual is 4 Whoppers and a Mrs Macs meat pie.

Luke Shuey with an iced up ankle post game, damn I hope he plays in the Grand Final and if he does, hopefully he isn't too hampered.

Still the greatest image on BigFooty. Hahahahahahaha


You campaigners know what happened next.
The Dees never recovered from this game

I feel like I'm back at uni, but I need an extension until tomorrow evening. I'll be able to write something up while my wife watches the bachelor *shudder*

Some moments become so iconic you can recognise the game from a single image.

This is one of those moments. This is one of those games.

Jetta.jpg


2018 Second Qualifying Final

West Coast 12.14 (86) def. Collingwood 10.10 (70)

Goals
2: Ryan, Darling, Kennedy
1: Vardy, Jetta, Sheed, Cripps, Rioli, Redden

Best
Yeo, McGovern, Ryan, Jetta, Sheed, Redden

But lets rewind a bit. In the week leading up to this game I was sick. Really sick. The sickest I've been since undergoing treatment for cancer. It was bad. The day before the game I turned to my wife and said "If I'm still like this tomorrow, I won't be able to go to the game". It was really ******* bad. Anyone that knows me knows that that was one of the hardest admissions I ever had to make. Admitting I might have to miss a final.

The next day I woke up and felt ... better. Nowhere near 100%, and my voice was barely there when normally it doesn't get that bad until half time. But I was going to the game.

And what a game it was! Easily forgotten after the Grand Final managed to kick it up several notches, but my god. Just watch the highlights. Just watch them (just close your eyes at 0:48 :( Open them again at 1:10). You even get to see Mayne smacked in the head by the ball. Twice! And Willie is called Ryan because Victorians are dumb racist fu**s. Oh, and Shuey is even run down vs Collingwood in a final for old time's sake. Dude just isn't built for finals:


The noise at Optus was the best I've experienced to date. So glad I was able to recover in time to experience it live.

Lewis Jetta is made for the big stage and the big moments. Love him.

Such a shame that that game is often forgotten because of the other game against Collingwood in September because it truly was a classic.

I was at formal birthday party where it was playing and I absolutely lost my mind when Jetta kicked the winner. Got a few looks but I couldn’t give a fu**.

What a month September 2018 was.

Got a family friend who works in Collingwood’s footy department, and he said that the roar when Jetta kicked the goal was the loudest crowd he’s ever heard. Easily surpassed any noise from their Prelim or the GF apparently.

Loved the rivalry West Coast and Collingwood built on last year. That game had another truly amazing moment too - Trav Varcoe kicking a wonder goal to get Collingwood on the board after losing his sister.

Honestly everything you want in a footy match; stakes, close finish, intensity throughout, big crowd, under the lights, Mason Cox humiliated on a national stage, iconic moments. What more could you ask for?

I'm not sure how much recency bias plays a role, but September 2018 was my favourite time as an Eagles fan.

And yes, the sound was insane. Absolutely loved it. Would have put the fear of God into the Vics and that led to their bizarro plan to telecast Melbourne supporters in Melbourne at the Prelim. Pricks.

Even accounting for recency bias I think you're right. Won a close one against Collingwood after being behind for much of the match. Spanked Melbourne so hard that they are still traumatised by it two seasons later. And then of course the Grand Final...

September 2006 with the close QF loss to Sydney and the come from behind against Adelaide away is good but overall September 2018 tops the lot.

As it turned out, that was a master stroke. Really, how good was it to see the switch to Fed Square each time WC piled on more misery. Hands down one of the all time backfires from the AFL, it just made that game all the more delicious.

Shows how sh*t channel 7's microphones are. Every one talks about how loud Jetta's goal was, yet on TV Darling's goal after that sounded way, way louder.

Wow, did not expect two picks smashed out like that so quickly. Good job, fellas! :)

That Geelong comeback game was amazing. I was at the sequel against Carlton the following week, was an insane day as well.
Same. That Carlton game was actually the first live game of footy I ever watched. I grew up rural so never got to see live games.

I think this was the coolest home game I have been too.
