    After Sunday's effort I fear the season is is in serious danger becoming a train wreck and the only light at the end of the tunnel is a freight train bringing another missed opportunity of finals footy. Sadly it looks like another repeat of last year's fade. Not enough respect was paid to a team that had won only two games and some puzzling selections contributed to a very disappointing effort. As a long time supporter I left the ground thinking what's the point of wasting time being subjected to this frustrating torture. I think the unhappy fact is we are still not good enough. No doubt I'll get over it but at he moment the future doesn't seem to offer much hope!

    19 SEPTEMBER, 1964

    I remember that day clearly. I managed to get a ten shilling standing room ticket from a scalper .Got there early to get a good view in the Southern Stand behind the goals at the Jolimont end. Saw the the under nineteens win the premiership...can't remember who played in the seconds . By the time the main game began a north wind had sprung up which made conditions a little difficult. In front of a huge crowd I was hoping for an easy win after our second semi demolition of the Maggies. It was a tight struggle and my three hour ordeal looked like heading for disaster after Gabelich kicked "that goal". Somehow Crompton managed to seal it...what a relief being surrounded by Collingwood supporters who thought they had it. I had to ask someone who kicked the goal as there was no such thing as a replay screen.and I could barely see over the fence. Dixon and Adams were the stars I remember, Barassi had a frustrating day and my John Lord kicked two goals. That's my recollection of our last Premiership. at the time there was a real feeling we had got out of jail rather than elation.

    The Incredible Hulk - Jesse Hogan

    Curiously he was slotting goals with ease off a few steps during the pre game warm up.

    Who is the 'Big Fish'?

    The big fish could be a Morton Bay Bugg or perhaps it's just a red herring.
