Grand Final report

Geelong 163 defeated Port Adelaide 44. The biggest winning margin in Grand Final history. It was close for about the first five minutes but, from then on, the Cats were unstoppable. This is their first GF win since 1963. Pussies no longer, these cats roared!
The MCG was just about full - close to 100,000 people at the ground.
As a spectacle, it was great to watch. As a game, it was so one-sided that the excitement level was pretty low - it was basically all over by the end of the first quarter.
This year Geelong have finished first after the home and away season, won the Grand Final, won the VFL (reserves) Grand Final, won the Brownlow Medal (best and fairest player of the year), won the Rising Star (best first year player), won the MVP award.
I think you could safely say they've been the dominant team of the year.

What a lop-sided scoring game!

The pre-season competition starts in February I think. Then the proper season starts in April.
