there was a good bit of Keith Who ? at the time , but do feel that got a life of its own and was blown way out of proportion
my family were avid football fans Tigers VFL saturday and Bullants VFA Sunday
We knew all too well how good Grieg (Brunswick/VFA) was and it was no surprise to us to see him dominate his wing and that general area of the ground
at the time we (and Tigers fans) loved Bryan Wood and he was a very good player but Grieg was another level
his high marks were like Disco Roach and his long kicking was a feature but he also covered ground amazingly quick and seemingly effortlessly
there is the odd brownlow winner that gets labelled as unworthy , think Wowoedin , I'd wouldn't put Greig in that group
Barlett, Bourke , Hunt and Grieg all had big years , the two sides played off in the GF
I remember at the time that Greig was a brilliant player but just about everyone thought that Bartlett had a better season than Greig. Greig won the Brownlow in 1973 so was well known and while I wouldn't say he didn't deserve the 1974 Brownlow in the sense that he was great in 1974, I just reckon Bartlett was better. Still, I reckon Greig would have swapped the Brownlow for the Premiership every day of the week.
