TOPIC: ARC SUNK

"Grundy amassed an outrageous 73 hitouts, 25 disposals and 10 clearances in a performance that required several checks of the stats sheet to make sure there wasn't a typo"

Throwing himself about hey Gumnut? Pleease. Has any ruckman ever got anywhere near that effort particularly in a final? He is the best ruckman in the league by a country mile and he battled against Mumford whose only intention was to buffet and hold him as much as possible, plus Tomlinson and Finlayson to pinch hit against him.

I've never disputed Grundy's talent but Mumford did choose not to contest on a lot of occasions as he was probably scared he might give away a free kick but what's interesting in the whole picture is that Collingwood's midfield got absolutely belted. He is though, as you say the best by a long mile which does make me question the strength of Collingwood's midfield as we also beat them in the midfield when we played them earlier in the season. Also interesting going forward is what Collingwood will do when Grundy leaves to go back to Adelaide in the next couple of years, if not next.

The discrepancy between Grundy’s domi( although I agree with Gumnut that Mumm played a strategic game) and the failure of the Pies midfield has a lot to do with Matthew de Boer, who seemed to be tagging all of them, often at the same time.

When you look at the positive role Matt plays as well as his negating duties, and his incredible stamina and obvious leadership qualities, he’s become a unique, champion player.

I would have liked to see the vision of Chris Mayne’s kick from the goal line/posts cameras. We could see that it was touched by GWS but exactly where was it touched? We didn’t get that view across the goal line.

Look at the telecast replay.

The very first piece of footage shown [edit: @ 25:33 on the AFL app video for Qtr 4] is from a side angle and all players at the contest are well inside the goal line. The arm swings backwards but as the ball passes the arm it’s still in the field of play. So, all they had to work out from that was whether there was contact.

Absolutely no doubt that was a correct call.

Wouldn't have been the first Arc that's sunk... just ask Noah.

Umm, I’m not Smilin’Scott Morrison’s pastor or anything, Expat, but I don’t remember reading that the arc ever sank until now. Just for the record.

Sank? It ended up on top of a mountain somewhere.

Is that the mountain we have to climb from Cockburn ?
