Tony Liberatore, 1997 Preliminary Final, memorably celebrating a goal that would’ve put the Bulldogs 28 points up in the last quarter by using his teammates as a cradle… Only problem was the ball had gone across the face of goal for a behind.
The Crows came back and won by 2 points.
Hayden Ballantyne in the Western Derby of Round 18 in 2011, going absolutely nuts when he thought he’d kicked a goal after the siren from 52m out, only to realise he’d hit the post and Fremantle had lost to West Coast by a point
Dylan Buckley with the gun going off in the holster, Round 22 2016
Oliver Florent in Round 4 of 2011, going absolutely nuts when he thought he’d kicked a goal after the siren for Sydney to defeat Port Adelaide, only to realise he’d fallen a metre short thanks to Callum Mills also prematurely celebrating and allowing Aliir Aliir a free run at the ball
There was a stat that Florent had 890 metres gained, the most of any player on the ground….
Turns out he needed 891.
