Two things struck me.

The one thing that made me actually shout out loud was the bellringer from Miller.

And, I guess I didn’t notice it on the day and I haven’t watched it since - Hodgo pausing to let Croker in front of him to be the first man out of the tunnel in the GF. It’s little things like that which is why we’re such a great team.
Sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel is just the train that's about to hit you.

I also hadn't realised this had happened (I also haven't rewatched that game) but I think it's such a sweet moment.

The comparison of young Croker dropping to the turf in anguish after *the kick that shall not be mentioned* and 2019 Croker leaping in the air in joy after we made the GF is such a moment as well.

Tonguey kissing the badge. Who could ever forget? That man bled the greenest green.

Miller ending that poor dude was just brilliant.

I got super emotional over all the sad bits. As you'd expect.

I think I have watched that Papalii try about 500 times. The roar of the crowd when he scored, something I’d never experienced as a Raiders fan.

Bateman’s try against the Storm also.

I love this club.

I didn’t think that would clip would get me, until they showed Croker’s 2010 kick. That still gets me

I think it's the utter devastation on his face. And the fact that he blamed himself for our loss in that game for so many years. He was so young then.

Easily my favourite memory as a raiders fan. The energy in the stadium when he crossed the line was something g we may never see again. 25 years of pent up emotion.

I think the best part was that - well, for me at least - when he got passed the ball, everything seemed to slow down. I just knew he would score. And when he did I started crying. When the buzzer went the only words my sister could get out of me were "We're going to Sydney! We're going to Sydney!" God, I'm choking up again just thinking about. That was such a special moment.

No matter how many times I see it that Steve Jackson try sends tingles up my spine.
I know it's only a 5 minute clip and you can't possibly cover everyone but I think two players deserved to be featured on that highlights reel.

We (possibly) wouldn't have won that GF against the Bulldogs without Osborne having a blinder. Secondly Campo singlehandedly carried us into two finals series and was totally robbed of a Dally M.
Still a great clip.

I think we should also acknowledge Tom Logan from the Raiders media department for putting that together the other night just before he was about to get stood down. A few years ago Ben was about it, now there is quite a few people. Who knows what the future will hold for them.

As someone who once worked full time in football (a different code), it was really hard when I no longer had a chance to do that and I went down the path of a completely different career.

There is no doubt I am far better off financially and probably work less hours, but there is something very special about being part of a football club. As that video shows, it gives you some of the best moments of your life, but it also has some of the hardest.

But regardless, we all can’t wait to back up for more.
