Top 10 AFL Grand Finals In History
The Top Ten
I was so lucky to watch my Swans beat the Eagles to win their first premiership in 72 years! Undoubtedly one of the best grand finals the game has seen. Leo Barry's mark was the best moment of my life too! - swans4life2013
Neither team deserved to lose. Both the Swans and the Eagles fought until the very end. Perfect example of what an AFL Grand Final should be.
How is this only at Number 2? Such a great game. What made it even better was that it was between two non-Victorian teams.

Who could forget the Battle of 89? The high scoring thriller where Gary Ablett Sr scored 9 goals and it still wasn't enough to get the Cats over the line. By the final siren, the Hawks only had 13 fit players on the field. Scottish soccer player Ray Stewart watched the match, and even said "I would not play this game for a million dollars."
Watch the documentary if you don't think this is the best grand final of the AFL.
Even as a Geelong supporter, I can say this s the best.
Best AFL Grand Final ever in my humble opinion.V 3 Comments
It was a one point game and in the swans half the eagles could of lost it if dean cox didn't win the tap.
People always talk about how good the 2005 one was, but it was too low-scoring for me. This one is the best.
For me this was ons was the best and most exciting AFL Grand Final I have ever seen.The 2005 was also very good but a bit too low scoring
I also loved this match... lots more than the 2005 grand final anyway, I mean a one point win to the eagles!
Oh Jesaulenko You Beauty!
Come on, you gotta vote for this man, it's the best ever
That piece of commentary still clear as day in my head...JESAULENKO YOU BEAUTY!
The greatest game since the 05 & 06 Sydney/West Coast grand finals. An epic game full of drama and excitement.
This is the second best granny ever behind 1989. Will gradually make its way up the list
But spoilt by the ump not blowing the whistle for that bloke.
The sheed goalV 7 Comments
I barrack for collingwood and I enjoyed both games but this probably more than the draw because it was keeping me on the edge of my seat
That was so annoying we gathered everyone for a draw
I was at the MCG for the first game. It was an absolute thriller. As soon as the siren sounded, the atmosphere around the stadium was incredible. It's a shame that the replay was boring and one-sided.
Such a nailbiter to watch St Kilda catch up to us but we won by sixty points the next game which kinda ruined the intensity of Collingwoods second grand final deciderV 1 Comment
For a non St Kilda supporter I just adore this performance and near the end it's the best victory of all time even more the 2006 grandfinal with one point scored near the end of the game - jonjonat
Western Bulldogs & Sydney battled it out and it was very close until Tom Boyd kicked a goal and they were 15 points in front, then Liam Picken kicked an easy goal and put them 21 points up, then a point was scored on the siren. The Western Bulldogs ended a 62 year drought. The Western Bulldogs had last played in a Grand Final in 1961 making it 20,090 days or 55 years
Waited all my life to see the Bulldogs win, Broke down in tears instantly as the siren sounded
The loudest, the most emotional just the best.
I think eveyone was going for the bulldogs that dayV 2 Comments
Best game ever! The margin never once reached 10 points and best of all, the mighty Lions won back to back premierships.
It is the best game ever but not if you really hate consecutive premierships from a very overrated team hate or love collingwood this was one of the most unfair and robbed contests in history - jonjonat
One of the best performances in AFL history it will go down in history as one of the best Grandfinals of all time excluding the greatness of the 1970 and 1989 VFL grandfinals it is by far the best and greatest game of all time - jonjonat
Not the prettiest grand final but easily one of the best. Could have gone either way all day. Never had there been two clubs undefeated by round 13, so even mid season this was destined to be a thriller.
Unfortunately the weather played into Geelong's favour but nonetheless it was a cliffhanger till the end
The ultimate Clash of the Titans! - Jazi17
Like its successer, this game would of been a draw if harry taylor didn't mark it at the end. Sadly this great mark was overshadowed by leo barrys mark 4 years prior.
great gameV 2 Comments
Brilliant seesawing encounter
Oh man, Nick Malceski's goal in the last minute was so good!
Veiwers must of thought hawthorn would smash it after half time but no sydney was not done with they kicked the last 5 goals with one a snappy round the boddy in the last minute to give sydney a 10 point win! this was not like most grand finals either the leading team continued switching!
Amazing game - Richmond scored 150 points and still lost! - graham.clayton.906
One of the great David vs Goliath games. Geelong fans saying we "stole" their flag for years afterwards, even as the hawks couldn't beat them again for five years. Game was won in the third quarter by a young prodigy called Cyril as well as an overweight ex-retired Stuart Dew, whose one great quarter more than justified his recruitment
Who doesn't like a bit of Cats vs Hawks?
As a Hawthorn supporter, at least I can say, I'm glad we finally got them again in 2013 - Flamesofsilver
Cameron Mooney's miss after the half-time siren was probably the funniest thing I've seen in my life!
All tigers fans vote this
It was the first time Freo made the grand finals ever, and they lost by 15 points. Hopefully they win it this year!
The best two sides all season. Cracking contest for 3 quarters until the mighty cats wore them down! And you won't see 3 classier goals in a girlfriend (with a greasy pill) than those kicked by J.Bartel
It was amazing
It was on a Sunday
