For the 12th time, and the second time in three years, Richmond are the champions of Australian Rules football. They win the 2019 AFL Grand Final in an 89-point mauling of Greater Western Sydney, 17.12.114 to 3.7.25.
The only big, big sound will be when they get to YELLOW AND BLACK.

Sydney Roosters go back-to-back, the first team to do so in a unified competition since Brisbane in 1992-1993 (Brisbane did it in 1997-1998, but their 1997 win was during the split year with separate Super League and ARL competitions) with a 14-8 win. Big referee call that decided the outcome, though...
In response to the Coronavirus as mentioned in the off topic thread as of typing the opening round is going ahead in empty stadiums, but that could change.
Because today Gill announced the 2020 home and away season will be shortened to 17 rounds. So teams will play each other once and then finals. So whoever wins the premiership this season will have an asterisks next to its name. And the Brownlow winner if it’s a close count.
It will suck for the clubs, particularly the ones with lower revenue that will lose revenue making home matches.
But with the uncertainty it is a good call to make. It will be an interesting season none the less.
Maybe they can call this a “gap year” and really experiment on stuff.
