    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    He didn't fail the Freo physical with that foot did he ala Jack Trengove?

    The Cheese Thread

    Getting married on a few weeks and we're having a cheese cake. 5 wheels of cheese stacked on top of each other. Can't bloody wait to cut into it!

    Where are they now? Austin Wonaeamirri

    There's a few familiar surnames in that team. Hopefully we get a few games on NITV over the summer so I can tune in

    2018 Player Reviews: # 39 Neville Jetta

    Don't have enough words to describe this guy. He's a superstar on and off the field in my eyes

    Grand Final Nearest Pin Comp

    Draw, then Pies by 1 in extra time. Sidebottom for Norm. The big Texan for 1st goal

    Rumour File

    I'm still waiting for The Riddler to return with the rumour we're finally giving that rookie spot to M. Goatflaps. I seriously love this time of year

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Perhaps Gawn/Preuss will be the third tall behind TMac and Weid?

    Brownlow Medal 2018

    Very much look forward to seeing our total team votes. Rarely get a player in double figures let alone near the leaderboard!

    The Robbie Jumper

    Ha just in the back bar of the pub. I wanted the photo in front of the big John Belushi and gopher Caddyshack photo but the lighting over the jack dancer stick machine was brighter!

    The Robbie Jumper

    The Robbie Jumper. When I was a little tacker Robbie was my hero. From birth I was given his badge and frequently told about the beauty of his game. I went to many of his games but unfortunately was too young to remember (although I do remember watching the smoothest one handed mark in an EJ Whitten Legends game years later). Growing up even though he'd retired when asked who my favourite player was "Robbie" was my answer, the legend of the man had become a part of me. Dad's mate Brian was a banker and looked after Robbie in the days when he founded Sportsco. One day he asked if Robbie could get him some jumpers for his mate's kids. Being the amazing person he was Robbie gave us all guernsey, although they were all massive adult sized ones that went down to our ankles! This blank, woolen with collar, never been worn Dees guernsey was at Mum and Dad's for 25 years until I found it in a box earlier this year. I found a fella in Fitzroy who'd recreated the VFL logo patch. I got a sew on number 2 at Buffalo Sports in my street, I redesigned the original Drake sponsor's logo and got a guy in Pakistan to make it into an embroidery file for $7 and found a local mob embroider it. Today Damien the tailor from the laundromat on Brunswick Road sewed them all on. The jumper is complete, just like Robbie's was in the 1987 finals series. Tonight I am extremely happy. Tomorrow night I will wear it to the MCG and I hope to keep on wearing it until we will win that final that escaped Robbie's grasp.

    Top 10 Exciting Demons

    When a ruck rover goes goal for goal against Jakovich and ends up with 8 for the day it's pretty exciting

    Top 10 Exciting Demons

    1. Jakovich 2. Pre knee Ox 3. Jurrah 4. Wiz 5. Sean Charles 6. Robbo 7. Howe 8. Flash 9. Stinga 10. Chopper Lovell Interesting that 4 of my top 5 were cruelled by injury and never reached their full potential. Jakovich potentially could have been up in the top goalkickers of all time, bloke was immense. Pre knee Ox was unbelievable. So agile and such a high flier. We only got a glimpse of it, he could have changed the game. A totally different player to the bullocking forward we saw for the majority of his career. Jurrah not much needs to be said. An absolute freak of the game. I've never been to a another game when the roar and electricity in the crowd would rise when the ball was 50m away from a player but you knew they were going to do something special. And Sean Charles, another what could have been. As a young fella I was devastated he couldn't fix that wrist. Imagine if we had the medical/physio teams we have today, we could have won a lot more in the 90s!

    Farewell Jack Watts

    I went to one of the preseason games at Casey and they had him start in the guts for the first 5 mins of each quarter before drifting forward. Had his hands on it every bounce, I can see what you see there

    Farewell Jack Watts

    Ok then let's go with a non midfielder. Watts has 13 Brownlow votes from 153 games. Jesse Hogan has 14 Brownlow votes from 51 games.
