Bizarre post shocker? You've just said it's the most important position on the field...but it was an actual wrap to him that he wasn't picked there, that other players were preferred to him. That actually enhances his reputationwon games at the highest level on his own. carried teams to well above their level. haven't seen a better halfback before or after. the fact that he won games out of position shows how good he was, it doesn't detract from it.

Looks like James Graham won't be a staple of my dream team for the first half of next year.
Meblourne looking really good here. Probably should be a bit further ahead really.
That's that. Well deserved on the day. Melbourne were fantastic at countering the Dogs spread. I think a better halfback would have exploited that but Keating didn't catch on to the kick behind the line.
Still can't get over Graham though. Really should have been walked for that. Pretty clear footage of him having a good chomp on Slater. Can only assume the footage wasn't sent down in time for the decision. He'll miss a **** load of time next year you'd think.
Definitely the two best teams over the year. High quality game worthy of a final.
Too professional Melbourne. Dogs not disgraced by any stretch, but it wouldn't be a big game with them in it without a disgrace to the game. This year it's biting ffs.

This is why you don't have Sunday night finals. Front rowers get hungry because they forced to have a late dinner, then they end up trying to eat little fullbacks.
Bring back Sunday afternoon grand finals.

Actually think I'd prefer a 7:30 start to 5:30, but overall prefer the old afternoon kick off.
This 5:30 stuff just is a weird time IMO.
great game cheats far too good.
was worth it to see ennis the grub get up on the verge of tears
Just seems to be the biggest non issue for me.
It's easy to deride television ratings but what's wrong with maximizing them if there's virtually no inconvenience for the attending fan?
