While researching for the "Who's fastest" thread I have dredged up lots of 1982 memories. Despite making the GF I don't think this team gets the plaudits it deserves, and Ray Ritchie lost his job despite getting the team to the GF. They played some of the best ad-lib attacking footy ever - check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym15L1vuFq0 Two matches stick in my head - beating Parra 31-14 in round 19 at Brookie, then flogging Canberra 61-20 the following week at Brookie again. I still can't believe we lost that GF, as we looked invincible in many games that year. I know the 83 team was better and were minor premiers, but I feel the 82 side had something special - they went for miracle tries.
