The 2001 AFL Grand Final - Essendon v Brisbane Lions
If it bleeds we can kill it.
Essendon had been a juggernaut for three years, only losing one match the previous year. Going into their round 10 clash at the Gabba the Bombers again were sitting on top of the ladder, while the Lions were outside the top 8 having lost the previous two matches. In the lead up to the match Leigh Matthews referring to Predator said “If it bleeds, we can kill it. And we reckon Essendon can bleed.” The 36 point win over Essendon started an amazing run for the Lions, they won 15 consecutive games leading up to the grand final.
Essendon and Brisbane finished first and second on the ladder and both won straight through to the much anticipated Grand Final. On a sunny September day in front of a crowd of 91,482 Brisbane started well before Essendon fought back late in the first quarter reducing the margin to 5 points at quarter time. The Bombers took control of the match in the second quarter, Brisbane’s inaccuracy proving costly with Essendon in front by 14 points at the main break.
The game changed after half time, with Brisbane’s pace worrying the tiring legs of the Essendon players. Hart, Johnson and Voss starred for the Lions while Lloyd with five goals and Lucas four were the Bombers best players.
