I don’t recall us beating Carey-era Roos much. That arrogant bastard tore us apart so often. He is mercifully impotent here, as we cement our spot in the 2001 finals. We beat Essendon in Round 22 (in front of 77,000), only to lose to them in the Qualifying Final the next week (in front of 78,000).
In this match Richo drags in about 18 marks. He fends off Jess Sinclair squarely in the face to mark and kick the sealer, which is unnoticed by umpire and commentators alike. Different times.
