Did I miss something ..... or is this the shortest match day thread ever?
We must've all been at the G... or pissed.... or both!

God, I would love to relive that day. Was probably one of the most calming days I’ve ever experienced at the footy. We were so lucky to have witnessed that. Over at half time.

Yeah, I have similar memories of 1980 which I was lucky to be at. I remember before the game I knew we would win, then we smacked Collingwood sideways. A great day at the footy. Back in those days being a Richmond supporter gave you confidence, dare I say cockiness. It took 37 years to smack that out of us, time to get it back.

Really good.
Coaches box commentary a bit lame and as expected (Dimma "raise the fight here boys" after the first GWS goal and Leon Cameron definitely Martin-focussed) but the non-standard vision is awesome.
Noticeable how huge a difference there is in great tackles being rewarded in 2019 versus what we have to put up with now in 2020.

Yes it was about as far from the usual experience we've had during our lives as Tigers supporters as you can get.

Some may disagree but I think it may well be the greatest Grand Final in history.

It was quite a surreal feeling being at the game ON GRAND FINAL day and not feeling stressed knowing we had the game in the bag at half time.

GOOD TIMES!!!

I’m a typically nervous supporter - always worried we’ll lose, no matter the margin. Was lucky enough to get tickets for myself, my eldest boy and his mate. GWS kicked the first and I didn’t care. We’ll bang on the next 10 I thought. I was wrong, it was 11. Absolute best day at the footy ever.

I rewatched again last night - pure bliss
But at the game I wasn’t able to relax at halftime and reckon it took till halfway thru the 3rd qtr when we’d got 10 goals clear that I properly started to relax
That last quarter was magnificent especially being behind the goals at the PRE
