Behind the scenes: 2017 AFL Grand Final

As a die-hard Crows supporter I’ve always maintained the belief that the last thing I would want in footy would be to LOSE a Grand Final. Well… turns out that happened. Almost a year ago to the day.

But rather than pretend like it’s not happening I’m attempting to face up to facts, hello fines lines EVERYWHERE, and get on the front foot in slowing this whole process down.
