'Dark cave': Dangerfield reveals emotional pain of grand final loss
2 hours ago
Geelong's loss to the Tigers in last month's AFL Grand Final.
Dangerfield, 30, was unable to steer his side to victory in what was his first-ever grand final. He scored one goal for the Cats but would finish the match with just 12 disposals. ( And made to look like a lower league player)
Already a Brownlow Medallist and eigh-time All-Australian, a premiership medal was virtually the last thing the Geelong star needed to cap off a perfect AFL resume. ”I feel I’m entitled to win multiple premierships. Look at Dusty.“ ( We did ya peanut. He made it look so easy kicking goal of the year after he flicked you over the boundary line)
Reminiscing on how he handled the loss, Dangerfield admitted he struggled with his emotions after it took him an extended period of time to pick himself up following the grand final heartache. “ I’m a sook when things don’t go my way” ( No *smile* kidding)
"Not super well," he told SEN'. (Still sook’ing)
"It took me a while to get out of the dark cave I was in there for a while. ( You’d be scared of the dark. You mean your bedroom with a nightlight)
"Eddie Betts probably sums it up well – in an interview he was talking about the AFL Grand Final and he said it's the best day and worst day all encapsulated into one. “ ken umpires could have given me more free kicks as I couldn’t find the ball myself”
"It was certainly a bit of that, it was a wonderful achievement to put ourselves in a position to play in a Grand Final and we would have loved a different result, but Richmond were spectacular and they deserve it. ( And my weak as *smile* team mates didn’t stand up for me to win myself a premiership)
"They've been an incredible side over a long period of time and they are the benchmark, the challenge is in front of us and we feel with the players we've brought in, that we'll be every bit as competitive come next season. “ well I hope so, Geelong sold the farm to get me my premiership “
