    This is the main reason why I didn't want Joey to get it. Its far too soon.

    It would be a shame if one of the older guys passed away before becoming an immortal.

    As I say, go back to the time they were playing, rather than retrospectively. At the time, people were picked ahead of him. Deal with that mate





    won 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.
    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 reputation

    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.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    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.

    awta

    So glad the dogs didn't get up, seeing Ennis win would've been terrible.

    Hopefully Graham gets a proper suspension too, dog.

    It's a bit weird but it does mean you can take little ones to the game. A lot of people go on about the day grand final (OMG THE AFL DOES IT) but I like the 3 games in one day which wouldn't be possible if first grade kicked off at 2. Not enough promotion of the NSW cup as it is.

    They had three GFs before when they had 4pm GF.

    10am first game
    1am second game
    4pm third game

    The only reason for night/twilight GF is for TV ratings. But seriously how many extra people are really going to not watch the GF is it starts at 4 not 5:30.

    But what's actually wrong with 530? The transition from light to dark? Game falls during "dinner time"? (only people I've known to have set times for dinner are my grandparents) Both issues are so minor it's barely worth mentioning.

    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?
