We have more great players than most realise, but we are also the best team. So even across the team and although Dusty stands out he can only do his thing with a team chock full of great players to facilitate his magic.

Actually it wasn't ridiculous at all. There was no double-chance back then. There were two semi finals, 1v3 and 2v4 and the winners met in a final. Finishing first was no different to finishing fourth. So the "challenge" rule, as it was called, was the only mechanism they had to give incentive and benefit to still finish first once a finals spot had been secured.
The only ridiculous aspect of the rule was that it meant that you didn't specifically know which game would end up being the "Grand" Final. And that just wouldn't fly today.
In any case, it would have been a useful rule in 2018 !
Funny how it was replaced with something else after the Pies used it successfully.

must be considered the best. 9 goals to 2 in the second half after being 16 points behind at half time. Remember only 16 minute qtrs. Truly a wonderful team of players who play for each other.
