Watched the Brisbane final on the weekend - the first time I watched the second half - I thought we weren’t too bad and the commentators thought we would win it till about the last 5 mins. We just didn’t quite click in the last quarter but we had em in the ropes which was nice. I can see why Geelong beat them now.

Normally I don’t have enough time to watch a replay in full - but my favourites are the 3 finals against the cats and obviously the other two grannies - watching the second half of any of those games is just a feast and the footy is simply outrageous from a tiger perspective.
And the 2017 Prelim.
Was lucky enough to get tickets for myself and Mrs Quickdraw.
It was sooo loud and I lost my voice till the following Wednesday. :cool:

I have seen 3 of this Golden Age finals in the flesh. The 2017 Prelim the 2019 QF and the 2020 GF. Each match was quite simply the Dusty Show. Memories I will relive many times.

Question, do you watch the whole thing? I tend to just go for the second half
I do enjoy watching them go into half time 4 goasls up thinking they are gonna do it just the same as I love watching Dangerdick smugly put em 4 goals up in the 2019 Prelim on half time ...............................NEK MINNIT ..................

2017 Prelim for mine.
The first Butler goal in the last quarter is still the most magical moment of all of these four finals series.
One of those camera-shaking goals.

I have managed to get to Melb for 4 finals
2017 prelim
2018 qual against hawks
2019 prelim and grand final

The 2017 prelim for me was a shock and awe feeling with mass party atmosphere and celebrations (I had been overseas for 12 months and it was my first live game for the year) - I couldn’t believe we had made the big dance - I will never forget the first 5 minutes of that game

The 2018 qual was just sit back and enjoy

The 2019 grand final was the same as 2017 without the shock - just one long party and celebrations

While the 2019 prelim was just sheer intensity, deep emotional outpouring and just so dam satisfying to win the game that looked lost at half time against that opposition and I could see 2018 happening all over again.

I honestly struggle to decide the best one between 2017 and 2019 games.

Mrs. Quickdraw at work.

Cooked a pretty good omelette for dinner, now enjoying some icy cold (home made and awesome) limoncello (or 3). Starting to get a warm glow, then Dusty kicks his first goal, just before quarter time.

Might have to pour another and turn the volume up for the second half.

Life's good. :cool:

What happened?
We lost?
I didn't with the Normie?
Boo hoo hoo!
Haaarrrgh. Poor Paddy's got maximum clench happening right there.
By far the best thing about this pic, is that Flossy played a couple of minutes n won his third premiership medallion. Clench played all game n got Sweet Fanny Addams.

Let em ramp up the expectation and pressure upon themselves.

Cameron didnt win a flag with GWS at their best with all their talent.

He likely aint winning one at Geesook either.

Their defence is light on now without taylor and no replacement found thus Blicavs has to go from ruck roving utility back to key defence, with Henderson that removes their point of difference in the middle.

Is anyone familiar with the highest quality version available of our 2020 finals matches? In particular, for the tech experts of PRE, what would be the highest frame rate available? I haven’t seen a fluid, 120hz version of our games before to my knowledge, so curious if our games could look better than I’ve seen them before.

I’d love to re-watch in high quality, but I don’t use DVDs/bluray, so I’m limited to whatever specced versions I can find online...

Blitzarse is better in defence.
