Regardless of the details, it was a stirring win. A tragic and unfortunate incident yes, but on the surface a great win.
I don't expect the people at the time to have known it, but to have it celebrated now as a stirring win is...I don't exactly know what to say. To also blow off the fact that the cause of the win being someone dying by saying "regardless of the details", I can only hope you're just clumsy with your language rather than genuinely believe that.

Indeed, better be a clumsy post because you don't witness death and perform well. To still think that had no effect 10 years on is naive at best and insulting at worst

By no means am I taking the incident lightly, I didn't mean it to be taken that way.

I voted for Hawthorn. I think us as a group want to beat them more than anyone else and vice versa.

Add in the 2012 Grand Final and Sydney scooping up Kennedy, McGlynn and Franklin while all they have is Spangher.
And the Hawks traded away first round picks for Justin Crawford ( pick 17 in 1996) and Brett Farrell ( pick 4 in 1998) in the late 1990's

I think rivalries change over time. In the 1990s it would have been North Melbourne. Carey was a great player but was a smug arrogant prat even on the field.

In the early 2000s it was west coast with their star studded line up against our bloods culture with the close results. But there was respect between each

Then more recently there have been the rivalries with Hawthorn and Clarkson owning Horse and the final kick wins and belting in 2014, loss of Titch. Tide has turned a little in our favour though.

Overall I think I’d plump for North Melbourne
