What more can be said after such an epic, brutal grand final?The Bulldogs fairytale -- breaking the AFLs longest premiership drought and becoming the first club to win a flag from seventh on the ladder -- was as breathtaking as it was deserved.It made ones heart leap for joy seeing all the old, long-suffering Dogs fans so relieved and ecstatic when the final siren blared around the MCG.Luke Beveridge has somehow transformed this club since taking over at the end of 2014, moulding a team built on ruthlessness at the coalface and electric speed on the outside.Talk about moments. Tom Boyds monster bomb from outside 50m to seal the game. Jake Stringers snap. Kieren Jacks courage running back with the flight in the first quarter. Lance Franklins ankle injury. Josh Kennedys two goals within minutes in the second term. The drama of Jason Johannisens goal review. And of course, Liam Pickens two majors in the final term as the Dogs strode towards history.In a game where every moment mattered, it was the Sons of the West who had more players delivering at the key stages throughout Saturdays classic decider.They fully deserved a second premiership cup to sit beside their previous one, won all the way back in 1954.HEROESTom Boyd: How could we not start with Boyd, one of the most scrutinised and maligned players in recent memory? He came of age on the grandest of stages. Some would argue hes overpaid, but he was worth every cent during dominant game against the Swans. He took six contested marks and booted 3.2, with his marking and second efforts a feature throughout. His breakout performance was reminiscent of Tom Hawkins efforts during Geelongs 2011 premiership win over Collingwood, and if Boyd can continue his trajectory upwards, he and the Dogs may follow the Cats path towards a dynasty.The Dogs backline brilliance: Johannisen was sublime with his rebound and daring attitude to take the game on. He was a deserved Norm Smith medallist, after collecting 33 touches (nine contested), seven marks, seven rebound 50s, nine inside 50s and numerous dashes from defence to break the Swans open. Alongside him in the Dogs backline was two players who epitomise the club itself - Dale Morris and Matthew Boyd. Morris produced an extraordinary effort to play, and play well, despite suffering a fractured back in Round 23. His chase-down tackle on Lance Franklin set up Tom Boyds booming last quarter-goal, while Boyd was also rock solid after an All Australian year. The two true-blue Bulldogs are both now premiership players.The Bevo and Bob moment: Wow, what a tear-jerker. Beveridges selflessness is lauded throughout Whitten Oval, and his decision to hand his premiership medallion to injured skipper Murphy typified that attitude. It was an iconic moment in Australian sport - no wonder his players love him. To do what hes been able to do within two years at the helm of the Dogs suggests he could drive this team towards continued greatness.VILLAINSAnother grand final heartbreak for the Swans: Losing grand finals really cuts you to the core, especially when you have a sniff during the game. After putting together such a brilliant home-and-away season, the Swans entered Saturdays decider primed to bury the demons from their woeful 2014 grand final defeat to Hawthorn. But yet again, they have to endure another end to a season without the most important silverware. The club will be hurting, but once the emotion subsides, they should be able to consider 2016 a successful season having won the minor premiership after blooding seven debutants, and boasting five All Australian players.Sydneys ball movement: It takes courage to pull the trigger and take on the zone defence of the Dogs but on Saturday, too often Sydney launched long down-the-line bombs, straight into the waiting Dogs defenders and dominant aerialists. Only during the second term, when Sydney used short passing to link up to either move the ball quickly around or through the zone, did they look to gain ascendancy. That was when the Swans gained the upper hand, booting six goals to edge ahead at the long break. But for most of the match, the Bulldogs feasted on the Swans loose kicks, scoring 63 points from Sydneys turnovers. Coupled with a loss of 24 in contested ball, these were telling statistics.The free kick count: The grand final certainly wasnt decided by the men in green, but the lopsided free kick count of 20-8 in the Bulldogs favour was eyebrow-raising. There were a number of reckless efforts that were reflected in the tally but in a close, tough encounter in which the whistle was mostly put away, the final count was surprising. Of particular interest was the kicking-in-danger decision against Kieren Jack, and resulting 50-metre penalty for what clearly was a slide into the lower part of the Sydney captains legs. Nothing can take away from the fact the Dogs were too ferocious and had more contributors on the day, but Swans fans can perhaps have more than one reason to be shaking their heads from Saturday.
