What was the reason why Butler was on the bench for 10 mins (start of 2nd qtr)? The only thing I can think of is he was dragged for Laird getting off the leash across their HB line in the first qtr?

Based on my own opinions after watching a replay a lot of times, I thought Butler had a weird game. He seemed to lack a lot of game awareness on the day. I thought he was hesitant in a lot of situations where normally he would have just gone straight in. I think he gave away a 50m penalty in the last quarter that cost us a goal simply by running to close to the player with the mark, there was that poor holding the ball where he just kept running through the middle of the ground and decided to bounce right when two Crows players were about to collar him, and there was also a bit of play late in the last qtr where he looked like he thought he was Neymar and was about to start dribbling the ball with his feet while again a couple of Crows were waiting to pounce.

I didn't realise he spent that much time on the bench after the 1st quarter, but maybe he copped a head knock early in the game and struggled with it from there.

Butler did have his tracksuit top on while sitting on the bench, so you could be right Slipper about a head knock.

He appeared to be our quietest on the day apart from that pass to Caddy for our first goal and his banana goal late in the last from a free. Although the AFL Record says Butler had 20 pressure acts (the third most).

I have to agree with you.
On the day, I forgot all about the away strip and didn't notice it again until I watched the replay.
The third quarter, the premiership quarter, it's Dusty time. He starts to shine and then delivers in the most AWESOME fashion.

I’ve still got one call to go on the bluray and hanging out for FoxFooty to do the replay with comments from some of the players.

I saw them advertising the Melbourne Storm Grand Final review, ours can't be too far away.

I saw something about “Fighting Fury” with Dimma and Rance talking about the Geelong game. So maybe we’re getting all the finals?

Indeed it was. I was lucky enough to be sitting at the other end of the ground on the perfect angle behind the kick to watch it go sailing through.

Ahh, the memories.

Fox Footy has started to advertise a new RFC special

"Fighting Fury" coming soon; they are promoting

Snippint they showed yesterday was Hardwick & Rance talking about the Geelong final
"Oh yes I am a dreamer, I still see us flying high!"
