  3. Re: 2016 Grand Final week memories - 4 years on

    A very dear and great mate of mine knocked on my door on the Wednesday and handed me a ticket! One of the few times in my life I have been speechless.
  4. Re: I hate the St Kilda Matchup - Tell me how we win this game???

    If we control the ball we will win. Luckily that's what we've done for the last few weeks.

    True. Look a bit silly doing blind turns without the ball in your hands. Although they say that in the 1971 grand final all the important moments in the first half took place without the ball.

    Really good point. I quite like the shorter quarters. It seems like players iced the clock less to me and there wasn't as much chipping the ball around to run the click down.
