    The 70's, gee we were a force back then, along with the 80's (although not much to show for it) and then into the 90's.

    Sadly I missed the 1972 GF, but haven't missed one since, some wonderful times and some absolute heartbreaks in that 40 odd year spread.

    95, 97 and 13 were all very painful scars I wear to this day.
    07 I wasn't expecting us to win so it wasn't that bad and 08 made up for anything in 07.

    I was too young for 82-83 but I imagine that they were tough to deal with.

    Mark, I was at the 72 Grandfinal and if you asked me a question about the game I couldn't answer you. I remember nothing other than the cheering and emotion of the day.

    For what it is worth, I rate the 76 side as one of our best ever, and Mooney as the best defensive (positional) winger I have seen.

    76 was the first Grand Final I attended. Back in those days you got there really early in the morning and when they opened the gates you made a run to get the best seats you could. I ended up sitting near where Neville Glover dropped the ball and where Phil Lowe scored.

    They were devastating for me at age 13 and 14, especially seeing we had beaten parra a fair few times across those seasons.

    I wish I had been around then. I'm only 21. You old blokes were so lucky to have been around for those years. Did any of you guys ever see a dinosaur? That would have been scary!

    I was only 17 in 1972, my Dad wouldn't let me go by myself ( living in country NSW), but I did manage 1973, and I guess it was much the same I can't remember much of the game as I was standing up on the hill and as I'm only 175 Cm couldn't see Jack ****.

    Not that old bloke from The Australian hotel out at Winton? He's not quite a dinosaur, but jeez it takes a while to get a beer out there!

    Side note; The Australian Hotel is in Elderslie Street, Winton. You can't trust those old blokes. They lie. @;)

    That 76 GF was the most tense match I can remember.
    I grew up as one of the youngest in a family full of parramatta supporters and was therefore banished to the back room to watch on an old black and white tele.
    I can still hear the whinging today and was threatened with some violent act by the old man if I stirred anyone up.
    It was worth the belting and I got my revenge by recruiting the younger family members to the sea eagles.
    What a day...... GO MANLY !!!
