The A-League had their Grand Final today as the Melbourne Victory defeated Sydney FC 3-0.  After the game, Football Federation Australia chairman Frank Lowy (who also doubles as one of the richest men in Australia) was ready to present the trophy when he took this dramatic tumble off the stage and crashed to the pitch.
