  8. Port Melb VFL Premiers 2017

    Would love to have some of Ports Hard men on Demons list Young Ruckman Lachlan Waddell Impressed got beaten for knockouts but very athletic and at 21 has huge room for improvement is not a one dimensional Ruckman
  9. Blast from the Past: Brian Wilson

    Funny how we all remember differently Probably one of my least favourite players Thought be was a very selfish player and that is why he was traded by two clubs before us Felt the same about Peter Moore and I'm Big Fan of Ruckman Not saying I'm right just how I remember them
  10. Guess the Crowd...GWS v Eagles

    I worked for the AFL NSW over the season doing promotional work on the Sth Coast Eden to Moruya and was given two GWS memberships for free I was able to get hold of another 4 to give to my Demon supporter friends for the ACT game I wonder how many of thier Memberships were actually paid for
  11. AFL Finals - Week 1

    So glad Scully is not playing for us
  12. Melbourne v Collingwood, 1968.

    Played a game against Greg Parke in the Riddell League 1979 Was so worried about him using my back as a step ladder that I tried running thru him early in the game Resulted in him kicking the first of many goals for the day Lesson learnt don't shirt front your Heroes
  13. Changes for GWS

    Me too
  14. Tassie Saturday V Norf

    I work for AFL Promote the game in the Sth Coast NSW schools Kids wear Collingwood/Melbourne/ Richmond and mainly Swans jumpers Very few GWS except for my Uniform Still think they will eventually fail and get moved away from Western Sydney Love for the Red and a White is strong down here St George and Swans
  15. Tassie Saturday V Norf

    Can't agree Gold Coast full of ex Victorians and STh Aussies and many of them ex AFL players Western Sydney a Rugby stronghold with next to no ex Victorians And many new Migrants who follow Soccer
