STRAIGHT out of the coach's box and into the AFL Media studio, three-time premiership skipper Michael Voss is uniquely placed to provide expert insight into what's taken place on the field and off it.

The recently departed Lions coach has joined and the AFL Record as a finals analyst.

This weekend's Final Say dissects the Dockers' impressive win over the Swans, and looks back at Friday night's Hawthorn-Geelong preliminary final. Voss and's Matt Thompson also deliver your first preview of next Saturday's Grand Final.

Voss is one of the biggest names in Brisbane Lions history after a rich playing career that boasts a Brownlow Medal and premierships in 2001, '02 and '03.

He captained the club between 1997 and 2006, playing 289 games, and represented Australia in the International Rules Series four times.
