ON THE last day of 2012, relive the best, worst and weirdest moments of the year in footy - and vote for your favourites.

It was the year Greater Western Sydney joined the competition, Kurt Tippett redefined homesickness, Nick Malceski became a premiership hero and "chicken wing" entered the AFL vernacular.

In short, it's been a big year.

At the start of 2012 Brock McLean was a fringe player hoping to extend his AFL career.

By the end of it he had kicked a remarkable winning goal, got way too personal on Twitter and sparked a tanking investigation into his former club. Oh, and he did earn that new one-year contract.

Who would have seen all that coming? Then again, 12 months ago Brett Ratten was dreaming of being a premiership coach. Now he's an assistant at the club most thought would win the flag, but lost to a side many pundits didn't even think would make the top eight.

It seemed the news never stopped - can you believe it's been three months since a ball was kicked in anger (and less than that til next season begins)?

But with a brief pause to welcome the new year, let's catch our collective breath and take a look at what the hell just happened.

Here's Warwick Green's wrap-up of an AFL season that was, in a word, irresistible.
