nothing can be done about it thats the shower thing.. to promise so much and then lose it like that.. We hit the front in the final quarter, were 2 goals up with a chance to kick another. We had home ground and home crowd advantage in the biggest game of the year and let it slip its disgraceful

Very true mate
there was mass talk we couldnt win the close ones after last years prelim, both cats game and the weagles game
but we quashed it after beating sydney, and more after Adelaide but sigh dunno how they flower we lost, we let them back after we dominated

Because the swans were better for pretty much most of the game.

I hate to comment on a game i didn't acually watch but it seemed like you got carried by Franklin and Sewell the entire game in comparison to the swans players who all contriubuted at different times (some more than others)

Yeah spot on that's what I thought watching it. Sam Mitchell came good in patches but for a player of his calibre he's underperformed in 2 grand finals now. Rioli, Birchall, Roughead were all well-held.
They'll bounce back next year don't worry about that! But for now... GO SWANS!!!!!  8) ;D :D :-*

The AFL great also noted a statistical quirk that of the 11 occasions a non-Victorian club has faced a Victorian club in a Grand Final, the visitors have now won eight.

Roughhead is a shower player. Such a choker.

Not having a go (Hawks clearly better than Pies this year), but you have to question the Hawk's mental resolve. The Pies prelim loss last year, the constant losses to Geelong, the Adelaide game was very lucky and now this game?

Compare it with Geelong's or Collingwood's record in close games, it doesn't stand up.

It's quite an incredible statistic really, with the travel and home advantage thing

It just proves that good teams can win anywhere regardless of the location and that travel isn't as big a deal as some make it out to be.
