It will be remembered as one of the most talked about Premierships in many years. The Grand Final in which the underdogs Hawthorn dethroned the reigning champs and red hot favourites Geelong to clinch the 2008 AFL Premiership. It put the seal on a season that saw Buddy Franklin become football’s pin up boy as he kicked a century of goals and after 16 sensational years gave Shane Crawford the premiership he craved.
17 years after their last flag and 19 years after defeating the Cats in the torrid “Battle of 89” , Hawthorn produced a game to savour. Follow their triumph from the National Anthem through to the post match presentations. Enjoy every bump, mark and goal in an uninterrupted coverage as the Hawks put their seal on a season to remember.
This is the 2008 AFL Grand Final – a DVD for every Hawthorn fan to cherish, for every football fan to enjoy.
