    At least they recouped their losses this year ORB.

    I'm guessing you didn't.

    But having watched the grand final about a zillion times (I've been isolated in the cultural backwater of NZ for the last 6 months), I have an extremely thorough insight into every kick, tackle, sheppard and mark, and its LRT hands down.

    As one of the commentators said re West Coast, "its not very often you win a grand final when the oppositions centre half back has had so many possessions".

    Hansen was the only forward option WC had, and LRT closed that option out.

    MOL would have got it if he didnt have the yips. No other forward could have got BOG in such a low scoring game, and by and large our midfield was beaten by WC.
    Actually the reality was that barry closed down their main forward - being gardiner, and their decision to not play matera made it a lot easier for us. It was also clearly the case that the eagles disposal was not brillant - a couple of kicks clearly favoured lrt rather than hansen. It was LRT's best game ever period but it was against a side whose forward line was rubbish all of the year and clearly was thrown up in the air for the GF by including gardiner and not matera.

    I'm actually surprised that we don't have a vote for Bevan, after all he did actually play that day, isn't that enough for him to be given BOG?
    Does God believe in Atheists?

    The whole team was so even that day no one really stood out. Apart from Leo at the end I suppose - can half a second qualify a player? FOR SURE IT CAN!

    I know you're already well aware of this, but let's emphasise that Leo had a terrific game, giving Gardner an absolute bath. Not BOG though - goes to Amon, three solid quarters topped off by a magnificent fourth.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Maybe not for us. But for every non swans person I've spoken to the majority have said fosdike was the man

    Monty for mine, if u look at 4 qtr LRT perhaps, but clearly a swans player should ahve won it...Judd was defr not BOG, had a good game but not a BOG game...

    I would think Monty efforts across the day, plus the amazing 4th would ahve pushed him over the line...

    He needs to step up to that level this year, otherwise he may become trade bait.....

    Buchanan by a mile. He should have won the Norm Smith. Totally inspired game of football where he played out of his skin. Never seen tackling like it. A legend for it, no matter what he ever does in the future.
