    Logic says it will be Matt Crouch given recent form, but Seedsman the dark horse for mine, looked good on Friday night, a couple of big bounding runs up the wing to kick a long goals wouldn't surprise me. Sentimental favourite would have to be Eddie though, would be nice to see him get a premiership medal and a Norm Snith.
    Go Crows!

    first time since 1898 that no players have previously played in a Grand Final.

    All new experience for all of them.

    Well history tells us that whenever Robert Harvey wins the Brownlow the Crows win the grand final and our number 23 wins the Norm Smith. If Harvey gets up again this year put your house on Charlie Cameron and the Crows!

    From a recent article talking about Dusty Martin when he was a kid:


    Back then Martin loved the Saints, and especially Robert Harvey.

    “You could not get Robert Harvey’s jumper off him,” remembers Steve Adamson, Cody’s dad and a life-long Creeker who coached Martin in the under-12s.

    “He trained in it, he went to school in it, he slept in it. Robert Harvey was his idol.”
    That's enough for me to declare if Dusty wins the Brownlow, the Crows will win, and lock in Cameron for the Norm Smith!!

    Sam Jacobs my smokie for the norm. Had 26 disposals and 50 hitouts against Nankervis earlier in the year. A repeat effort would see him go close you would think.

    Defenders with a lot of disposals seem to do well in the Norm Smith so Rory Laird for me. Crows by 34 points.

    Head says Crows. Heart says Tigers.
    Looks like everyone says Crows so far so I'll switch it up.
    I have a few good mates that are long suffering Tiger supporters, so I'd be thrilled if they could get over the line.

    Richmond by 9 points.
    Josh Jenkins for first goal scorer.
    Dusty to collect the Norm Smith.

    Looking forward to a big Grand Final.
