West Coast



"To talk of a side 'deserving' a premiership on the basis of a one-point win is churlish but, on the basis of West Coast's near-exemplary whole season's work, there can be no doubt that the 2006 AFL premiership cup found its rightful home ... It was the Eagles' third flag in the 20th year of their existence. Given that they were only initially admitted to the then VFL in order to alleviate the financial woes of a number of Melbourne-based clubs, and were neither expected nor desired to be successful, this has to be regarded as an extraordinarily praiseworthy achievement..."
