Wow, where to start? Firstly, credit to the victors. Just seven days earlier, I made it fairly clear I thought the Swans would not only win the AFL premiership, but do it with reasonable ease.
I’m not for one moment suggesting the impact of Lance ‘Call me Buddy’ Franklin should be seen for anything other than what it is – match-winning.
If you listened closely at Patersons Stadium late on Saturday night, you could almost hear it.
Members, supporters and even casual fans of the four clubs playing next weekend would all have justified reason to believe their team can win and advance to a grand final qualifier the following week.
My face wasn’t exactly covered in egg after the weekend footy results, but there was a certain amount of yellow and white, courtesy of the yellow and black.
It was the second weekend in July when Port Adelaide slid out of the top four, and Geelong crept in. From that moment on, it was merely a case of the best four teams in the competition jockeying for starting finals positions.
