Bartlett read the game so well, it is something you notice in great players. He was a wiry guy too but they would smack him down and he would just get up again.

Dusty reads it so well too, the timing he showed intercepting the handball to kick that goal on Saturday was great.

My favourite goal.
For obvious reasons......

He so clearly knew Stanley had panicked and would handball to Danger so just ambled between them and received it. Stanley you poor bastard. Unfair.

The lead up to Dusty's 4th goal was Stanley in a nutshell. Panicked and dropped an easy mark 15 metres out from our goal. The panicked again and gave it up to Dusty for the remarkable goal.

Bog average footballer is Stanley. I laughed and laughed when people brought up the fact that he and Rohan weren't playing when we beat them in round 17.

Stanley is the anti-Nankervis. Did you notice Lynch and Riewoldt get stuck into him after Castagna wobbled through his goal?

Yeah I did see that. Anti-Nankervis is a great description. Anti-Soldo as well.

Dwayne Russell yesterday called Stanley a "fighter" o_O. Nearly drove off the road.

He is anything but.

Now now boys. Poor old Stanley will feature in greatest goals of the 2000s clips for the next 20 years. And not in a good way.

You're all assuming it was Stanley's idea to give the handball to Clangerflop. Clangerflop being Clangerflop, I wouldn't be surprised if Dusty knew where it was going because Clangerflop was shouting "Give it to me! Give it to me! I'm better than you and the cameras are watching so give it to me!"

Dusty choosing not to tackle but rather to wait for the handball was genius.

He was taking the *smile*
He was. He just ambled along at about 20% intensity. That was all he needed. He didn’t even need to get his hands dirty.

It looked like Stanley just placed the ball neatly in Dusty’s hands and got out of his way and Dangerfield just threw himself into the fence.

Here is Dangerfield explaining the technique he used to tackle Dusty when he was about to kick his fourth goal in the Grand Final.

Yeah, by that stage as far as Dusty was concerned, it was party time. The way he took the ball off Stanley’s hands, brushed Dangerfield aside and left him on the ground looking stupid, then kicked a remarkable goal was just so beautiful that it brought tears to the eyes.

No way! Stanley dropped the mark which was uncontested. Even dangerfield couldn't help him. dangerfield was stuff, he had no run left and trying to get cheap kicks in the backline for the last 5 minutes.

Didn't Stanley go for the ball with clenched fists? I need to watch the game again but I remember watching it live and wondering why he was punching the ball away when he could have and should have simply marked the ball.

There’s a poster on the roar who has the answer: tackle Dusty. He somehow seems not to realise that if it was truly that simple it would have been done. I bet Chris Scott read that and was face palming himself, thinking why didn’t I just tell them to tackle Dusty? Bwahahaha!
