I layed Angus Brayshaw twice @1000.

He didn't play the first 3 games so his Brownlow tally was even more impressive.

Suspect his skull cap makes him a vote magnet.

Ranked only #32 and #47 on average kicks, handballs which seems curious.

What about Marley Williams in round 2 vs St Kilda? Gets the three votes for a 14 possession game, Brown kicks 6 doesn't poll a vote.....

From Fox Sports:

Marley Williams, who was judged as best on ground in North Melbourne’s Round 2 win over St Kilda.

However we’re not entirely sure which part of his 14 disposals, three marks, one clearance, three clangers or one free kick against earned him the three. Maybe we missed something, sorry Marley.

Magnificent finish to the season.   emthup

Was that mark paid to Eagles second to last before the winning goal actually a mark  :what:

It sure was!  Collingwood were terrific today and I didn't think we were going to catch them.


But that is a way to play a Grand Final.


Every passenger in the taxi the last week asked me who would win and I honestly couldn't say.


Hoping we would turn up but it sure didn't look like it early!


Great character from the boys and a great game either way overall.

As an emigre from the State of Excitement I'm ecstatic about the result. In a mellow mood.

Collingwood starred early and continued threatening until the last few minutes.

LeCras and Jetta will have their bucket list thinned.

Not sure why the burgeoning Rioli clan didn't feature more in the narrative.

But what's with the team song! If it was any worse it could replace our excuse for the national anthem.

If they can't adopt Eagle Rock then why not get Hoodu Guru Dave Faulkner to knock up something in the mood of his home town?

Outside of the first 15 minutes of the game West Coast were the better side and nearly blew it by missing those set shots in the last quarter.
The better side won.

I didn't see it that way live, Bubs.


An interesting stat heard on radio after the game was that Collingwood led for 105 minutes and the Eagles for 9.


I thought that pretty much summed up the game. 


We just got our beaks in front at the right time.

No it wasn't. He clearly dropped it.

Tell you what though that numbat who dropped the easiest catch ever in any sport will be glad they won.
Probably the greatest choke ever

Let me say I wanted West Coast to win.

Well really I wanted Collingwood to lose.

However was there any talk amongst the Aussie Rules aficionados about whether the bloke who kicked the last goal attempted to play on?

In days gone by he would have been called to do so.


These days they always give them the benefit of the doubt. 


I would have called play on but there you go.

How far are you allowed to run nowadays without a bounce if the ball?

The length of the field if it's a home game.  And I'm not kidding.


The crowd seems to do most of the umpiring these days.


Fortunately they got things fairly right in the big one.

Angus Brayshaw came third in the 2018 Brownlow Medal with 21 votes, his Melbourne teammate Max Gawn, finished equal fourth with 20 votes, however in Melbourne's best and fairest Gawn came first with 657 votes and Brayshaw finished  sixth with 429 votes.

Do umpires have any idea ? The rightful win of Tom Mitchell has not been questioned..the umpires got that right.

OVER 4000 people have signed an online petition pushing for the 2018 Grand Final result to be reversed because of poor umpiring.
Collingwood fan Rod Craven started the petition following the Magpies’ heartbreaking loss to West Coast on Saturday.
“This petition is being brought to your attention in regard to serious concerns by the football public, especially supporters of the Collingwood Football Club who believe that certain umpiring decisions in the 2018 AFL Grand Final were either wrongly awarded, were missed entirely and eventually were what cost the Collingwood Football Club the premiership,” Craven began.
He then goes on to highlight three incidents during the match that left him fuming.
1) “The video replay judgment of the goal given to West Coast in the first qtr clearly showed that the ball was touched as it crossed the line, not by the boot of the WCE player but came off another part of his body and was clearly a behind. The resultant score should then have read 1.3 instead of 2.2.
2) “The video replay of a Collingwood behind at the same end in the last qtr clearly showed that no WCE player had deflected the flight of the ball, then the result should have been declared as a Collingwood goal. The resultant score would then be 12.7 instead of 11.8.
3) “The illegal blocking shepherd on Brayden Maynard with two minutes to play should have been paid as a free kick to Maynard as it was considered an act of interference which allowed the West Coast player to goal. The decision should have then allowed Maynard possession to clear the ball and in so doing the goal to West Coast would not have eventuated, giving them a final score of 11.8 for the game.”
But wait, Craven wasn’t finished just yet.
He continues to highlight 50-50 umpiring decisions before demanding that “either the result reversed, or the game declared a no-result and replayed in its entirety at a future date.”

No mention of his teams first goal(?) where the player ran for about 25m after gathering the ball and before kicking the goal.

That makes it 11:7 so they still lose  :lol:

We actually kicked a goal that clearly crossed the line before being touched and they ruled it a point.


Nevermind. 


Umpires won't get everything right but I thought they weren't too bad.  They let the game go/flow for both sides.
