AFL Grand Final

Comiserations to any Collingwood supporters here, but I have to say yesterdays result doesnt get much better than that lol

The Pies losing by 5 points - runner blocking a Collingwood players spoil attempt resulting in a goal, and a very late goal to put the Eagles in front and win. They only way it could have been better was if the margin was 1 point !!

Well done Eagles....Won the Trophy animated emoticon

Yep it was pretty special to see the Collingwood mob crying LOL No sympathy at all for the filth! They were lucky it was so close at the end as WC ouplayed them after half time and but for poor kicking for goal would have won easily.

Billy,

When you are the biggest & the BEST at everything & life is a bowl of cherries & all things handed to you on a silver plate, It is difficult that when the ultimate prize eludes you life can be a bitch.

Eddie says that all is well & they'll be back next year but i think i've heard that song before. !!

There will be plenty of other teams that will improve with some good recruiting like Richmond, Essendon,Melbourne and maybe even Brisbane esp at home.so I dont think the Pies are a shoein for the GF next year.

I personally thought they played above themselves the last few weeks and needed everything to go right for them to fluke a flag.

I have been attending the VFA/VFL and VFL/AFL Grand Final since the late 60s.

I have seen Collingwood play in 13 Grand Finals and they have won 2 lost 9 and drawn 2. Their losses have been 70/77/79/80/81/02/03/11/18. Amazingly they have not won a Grand Final in September since 1958 courtesy of a drawn final in 1990 and a GF replay in 2010. Their record stands 2 flags in last 60 years. from 1959-2018. They did have a good final series but yet again no cigar. List of players they do not want to ever hear their names include Barry Breen, Wayne Harmes, Ken Sheldon, Kevin Bartlett, Dennis Crompton and now you can add Dom Sheed. .

Just goes to prove once again what whingers they are.There were at least half a dozen frees not paid to WCE in goalkicking range so suck it up Collingwood you LOST Game over.

Dom Sheed delivered the greatest kick i've ever seen, absolute pure perfection.

The Pies wonder why they go over all the time the coaching panel is full of losers.Buckley, Harvey, Hocking, Rocca, Sanderson, Rivers, Lockyer & Longmuir none to have ever greeted the judge !!

Collingwood losing a grand final is always great. Even better when they are so close to winning but somehow don't. Priceless. Dom sheed you legend !!!!
