Re: Bad news from Oz...
wow. and not just beat - thumped them. what a pity.
I watched the first final and I have to say it was the best AFL final I've ever seen - as far as tough tackling on the ball and men putting their bodies on the line - pretty phenomenal stuff. You always thought that St. Kilda, after their comeback last week, would find it difficult to get the same energy two weeks in a row.
And you have to remember, a minute left on the clock, game tied, St. Kilda have the ball bouncing around on goal about 15 metres out, about 4 guys just trying to get anything on it to put it over the line for a point, and 1 or 2 Collingwood defenders (it seemed) managing to spoil them time after time.
Out of interest, do you know if there were any injuries/suspensions or extra players who made a difference in the replay, or was it simply that Collingwood turned out to be the better team?
