I dunno. I reckon the bulk of the impartials would have enjoyed the Dusty show. You were watching something truly special. Especially his last goal. You just know you will see that clip over and over for decades to come.
Most of my NON tigers mates texts had two sentiments: Tigers too good, Martin the greatest.

BT was flat and very poor post game. Really looked like he didn’t want to be doing the post game walk around, seemed to labour through it without enthusiasm
He had no match practice.,and maybe after watching a season of no roaming Brian he worked out for himself that no one missed him.

Isn't this the footy media thread? Just watched my first Richmond Grand Final on TV and hated the experience. Every time there was a big moment, instead of soaking it up we went to an ad. Totally ruined the flow of the experience.




I don't care who provides the service, let 7 provide a pay stream without ads if they like.
I've read other comments now...see your point. I thought you were advocating that everyone should have to pay, no FTA.
But as someone who has never gone with Foxtel I'm pretty immune to the ad breaks. I use them to refill refreshments, talk with whoever I am watching with, or if on my own post on PRE, and read the posts of learned and passionate posters.
This year I went with Kayo for the games not on 7 but look forward to getting back to the pub for those games in 2021.

How nice to wake up to no negative comments about our brilliant club.
Just sit back and listen to the haters praise us all day.

As far as I could tell there was no rain for the whole game. We dismantled the Cats in conditions that were favourable to their game style.
We proved that we are the best in any conditions.............in any weather you will see us with a grin......................

Suck it up haters, suck it up!!!!

It’s long been my standard practice to have the sound off for all live games - and the GF was no exception
(That said I’ll flick it on if there are incidents such as Vlossy going down)

So it was only when watching the replay yesterday that I listened to the drivel of McAnaney and his grovelling adulation of the Diver and the “little master”
Don't actually mind hearing it after the event when I know for a fact he’s gotten it all wrong

I'm with you @Tenacious ... this is how I've watched it for years... even games not involving us.

I can't stand all the mindless bullsh!t they waffle on about and the scripted rubbish they somehow believe enhances our experience.

It's been a revelation for me. Massive reduction in my stress level. I rewind the goals and turn the sound on for a few seconds during the game.

Turned SEN this morning, listening to their commentary of Dustys goal at the end compared to how flat and boring Bruce was. Wow, chalk and cheese.

It's time for Bwuce to sail off into the sunset, he's well past his use by date.

In fact he's become an even bigger embarassment than he was

I thought Whateley's commentary for all Dusty's goals was pretty good.

Tiger supporter rang SEN and ripped Dangerfield for his elbow and Chris (and Brad!) Scott for their perennial saltiness towards Richmond. Dwayne Russell dismissed all of it as rubbish.

Yeah. That is what we do to sides now. We keep believing, they stop. We scored 11 out of 12 goals from turnovers last night - they lose it, we run forward in waves. Must be terrifying to be playing against that, knowing that you threw everything at us in the first half, but we just keep coming.

I noticed our scoring from turnovers was almost back to pre-finals levels too.

How hard is it to beat a team which can switch from winning clearances to score, to causing turnovers to score.

What a time to be a Richmond supporter.

I said the same much earlier in the year. Ch.7 need to confine him to horse-racing only or maybe last Olympics, where his expertise on stats is a little more relevant.
Out to pasture, Bwuce. I'm sure he'd be ecstatic in a paddock with Winx.
