Yep Congrats to them a long wait over

That's another drought ended , the Swans in 2005 and Fitzroy I guess via Brisbane , that just leaves Melbourne and Saints as long running droughts it's fair to say the Afl equalisation policy is coming up with the goods it would of been hard to see Footscray ever going all the way under the old vfl rules when big money ruled,

Congrats to the Bullies...well deserved

Missed the game yesterday having to work and after hearing all the hoopla last night about how good a game this was I sat down to enjoy the replay this morning...whilst I can't fault the hardness and endeavour shown by both teams for people to be calling this one of the greatest games ever is a bit of a stretch...a great result in terms of the fairytale that is the Bullies but taking the emotion of the result out of it as for the game itself it was hardly a 120min highlight reel...a bit of perspective please...Sydney forwards didn't get near it, bullies butchered the ball going forward in the first half, actually both teams struggled with delivery inside 50 most of the day. Swans players will be gutted today on review as reality is they didn't bring it on the day and were out worked by the Bullies. Hard to call it the greatest game ever when both teams aren't on. Rant over!

Agree DW, there were so many dropped marks and missed targets. The game as a spectacle was vastly inferior to the GWS v Dogs preliminary final which was an outstanding game. It was the outcome that was more exciting yesterday.

Congrats to the Footscray (where the fark is Western) Bulldogs but I agree with DW & Mike the only one's beating their chest about it being one of the great GF's of all time are the usual knob jockey Vic media and those with extremely short memories. Wouldnt get within a bulls roar of the 89 GF, or 77, 05, 06, 09, 10 & 12 for that matter. There was something worse than the skills on show tho and that was the 'interesting' umpiring ...is the sliding rule not relevant in a GF??????

So does Brad Hardie who called it one of the best GF's of all time, qualify as a knob jockey Vic media now that he resides there, or a WA media man...?????

Yeah the skills were not the greatest, Swans didnt really bring their best,massive opprtunity wasted, plenty down , Rohan Tippet ordinary, Franklin injured early, Hanners later, Kennedy kept them alive, reckon they lost it in the first qrt, really needed to get out of the blockw well but with the dogs in the game were left wide open, the closeness and lead changes were what made it a good specatacle.

It was not pretty to watch but it was one of the best where the underdog contained a team of "champions". The pressure on the Swans was too much for them & even with ten minutes to go I thought the Swans would win. Stringer had been over rated & proved it. Tom Boyd was worth the money. Picken was great but the defenders did the job on the usually free flowing Swans.
As a footnote Doggies aslo won the VFL & Ladies premierships. A rare feat.. Great for football as I thought they would lose all finals they played. Beveridge's grand father would have been proud.

Well done to the Doggies.A win well deserved.
Not a true classic game, but the closeness of the game kept it interesting.The prelim final, between the Doggies and the GWS was a much much better spectacle that the GF.
For the Doggies the stars really were lined up.Beaten by Fremantle in the last game of the year, the AFL decided that a bye was good for all.The Bulldogs benefited from it more than others.
They had a week off from travelling two week in a row to WA.A real bonus.Also it allowed them to regain five players back from injury.They dished up a hiding to the West Coast.No body expected them to win.
They then returned home to face the Hawks, who had a hard tough game against Geelong. They demolished the Hawks.No body expected them to win.
They then travelled to Sydney to play the GWS.They played out of their skin to beat the Neeshies in a great game.Nobody expected them to win.
They progressed to the GF after a great finals campaign.No body expected them to get there.
They proceeded to destroy the Swannies.A game well won.
Yet through all this they were never favourites to win any of the games.They were sentimental favourites,but never favourites. Yep every one whose side was out wanted the Doggies to win.But they were never favourites to win.
Well done to the players, the Coach, the club, for an amazing season.
Yep all the stars were lined up for them.
Oh and I thought that Tom Boyd would have won the Norm Smith medal.But well done to Johannisen for being awarded the medal.

Good for the game to see a club that has had such a long drought get up and great to see a club other than Hawthorn, Sydney or Geelong win a flag.

I have never seen a side handball over their head so often and with such good effect. It is obviously something they work on. I think we will see all clubs following that trend. The Bulldogs have set a new benchmark, they just take the game on at all costs. Who Dares Wins. They dared, and they won.
