Yep they don't happen all that often but when they do it is incredible!
The sad thing was only 11,000 were at the Junction Oval that day and the ABC who televised the match wiped the tape!
VFA has a DVD of the last Q of the Sandy v Moorabbin GF the following year. (Moorabbin won)
I have the 1963 Moorabbin v sandringham last quarter on DVD. Haven't got the 1962, wish I did. The 1960 vfa gf oakleigh v sandringham is listed as lost in the NFSA. It is more than likely in an unmarked canister or misplaced. I watched the last quarter of Frankston great last quarter on YouTube last night. Amazing stuff. Good on you dolphins !!!!
Yes Blackrocker, the story I was told was back in those days was to save money the ABC wiped the tapes and reused them but that could be just to cover their arse for accidently wiping the tape because how come the 1963 tape exists!
It is a great pity as it was one of the most amazing come from behind wins VFA GF history.
The scenes out on the ground and in the rooms straight after the match were incredible and I have never seen anything like it since!
Nathan Freeman heading back to Melbourne for work reasons. I wonder if he will end up back at Frankston?
Have to keep an eye on Paul Amy's tweets.
Could he be added to a VFL team at this stage of the season?
Geez Paul, nicely spotted......I noticed Nathan was tagged in some social media discussions about Saturday's comeback and he expressed a bit of excitement which I thought unusual......could that be a little fuel for the rumour fire? ;) Would be incredible to have him step back into the team at this point if it's possible. I'm sketchy on the details, but weren't his previous sports management opportunities connected to the Dolphs somehow?
Frankston have 3 players on the long term injury list. so hopefully there is a way to list him using that if he wants to come back to Frankston.
Hey Aj, hows this for a midfield..the Fab Four - Freeman, Fordham, Newman and Mynott - with Begley and Riley floating in and out. Wouldnt be a better midfield in the comp,
If Nathan Freeman can re join the dolphins it would be a massive boost. The win against Carlton will give the dolphins plenty of confidence. Saturday nights game at Williamstown looks very evenly matched. A win for the dolphins and all of a sudden they will be 4/3 after 7 rounds which gives them much hope launching into the second half of the season. So far to date Frankston are the best performed of the six VFA teams. Yes midfield would look very good if Freeman can re join.
I salivate at the thought Bearsman.....with Freeman back in it would undoubtedly be a better list than last year's. Do any of you blokes know if Bailey Lambert is due back during the season? He's one bloke we've missed pretty badly.
