Tredrea last Goal Rd 8. 2009 v Richmond.
Kicked 7 that day in one of his last dominant games of his career, kicked our last goal to give us the lead after Richmond were leading all day, I remember very clearly just giving up and accepting yet another loss in a not so good year for us. And then he just went back, slotted the goal, and immediately ran back to defence and took a contested mark straight after to seal the game for us. Not the most important in the grand scheme of things, and not the best goal skill wise, just a standard goal really. But it was more the poeticness of it all, a champion of the game just doing what a champion does, even at the end of his career just showing how much better he was than anyone else on the ground that day and just one of those performances that stuck in my mind
The Rioli 2009 effort was probably the best one I've seen live but I'll nominate this- I was fortunate to have a great vantage point and could see it all unfolding a split second before it actually happened. It ended up being the turning point of the match too, it'd been a tight contest until then but that goal completely broke the pies' resistance.
Michael Voss's brilliant long running goal for the Brisbane Lions midway through the final term of the 2001 Grand Final, which sent Essendon to the canvas and sealed the first premiership for Brisbane as either the Lions or Bears, and the first for Fitzroy in 57 long years dating back to 1944.
In an era where forwards were positioned in the forward line even when their own team was kicking out after a behind. Was so easy to exit your back half in those days.
Haven't seen that clip for ages - thanks for posting.
Has to be the Motlop "Not Goal of the Year" effort at the Gabba. The perfect classic Lade to Burgoyne combo then the checkside on the run from outside 50 on the wrong side of the ground. Name me one other player who could do that let alone even try to do it.
