AFL 2019: Grand Final Drinking Game

The rules of the game within the game this Saturday.

The 2019 Grand Final is almost upon us, and while Richmond and Giants fans are likely to need just the game alone to get their blood racing, neutral fans might need a little more to get excited about. So while the fans of the two competing teams are going through three hours or agony watching their teams compete for the game’s ultimate prize, we have devised this drinking game to keep everybody else equally enthralled in the action.


  1. Opening Bounce = One Drink – Let’s get this party started.
  2. Anytime they pan to Mason Cox’s parents in the crowd = One Drink.
  3. Anytime Stephen Coniglio is on screen or his making himself unavailable for selection is mentioned = One Drink after agreeing with everyone in the room “Ultimate team man”.
  4. Anytime Alex Rance’s Knee Reconstruction is mentioned = One Drink.
  5. Anytime the centre bounce is recalled = One Drink and yell “You had one job”.
  6. Anytime BT or any member of the commentary team uses the phrase ‘foot candy’ = One Drink.
