    ^^ ditto, echo, ditto, 100%!!
  2. Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    I'd love to be playing Port in the GF. That would be a nice way to put Jack's judgement to the test. I'll back mine over his every day of the week in the very unlikely event that that circumstance should arise.
  3. Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    Maybe a more pertinent question is: "are Melbourne closer to a Flag without Watts?"
  4. Preseason Training - Week commencing 11/12/17

    We need an "Oh Sh!t" emoticon for moments like these.
  5. Behold your 2018 Midfield

    That's our future right there!
  6. Friday in the Sun

    As they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words" These are brilliant Six. Thanks from all of us!
  7. Jack Viney will Return to the Track in January.

    I know exactly what you are saying IT, but both Misso and Jack have said on several occasions that Jack's injury would be managed conservatively, and if 'conservative management' means that Jack will be training with the main group early in January, then I'm happy to take it at face value and be thrilled about it. Of course, that doesn't mean that I won't be somewhat nervous about the possibility of the injury recurring , but that's just standard, par for the course, MFCSS kicking in.

    A great Christmas present indeed: Viney gives Dees an early Christmas present
  9. Preseason Training - Week commencing 4/12/17

    Thanks Saty. Re the running: was it repeat sprint work or were they just churning out laps?
  10. 9 Goals Straight from David Schwarz

    I was at the SCG that day, and will never forget it. Schwarta, Stinger and Stormboy (Charles), all outstanding, and all had their careers cruelled by injury. Cost us a flag I reckon. After the game Mrs Deeoldfart, myself and our three kids were in a bus full of very forlorn Sydney fans returning to Central Station. Five of us up the back singing the Grand Old Flag with gusto. Fond memories. Please excuse the nostalgia.
  11. Rare Robbie Flower Highlights

    Treasured memories viewed through teary eyes. Sincere thanks Demonland!
  12. Nibbler - how good can he be?

    ANB progressed to become a good role player in 2017, and his work ethic almost ensures that he will go on to become very good as his skills, strength and vision improve with experience and application. If he progresses to that level he will be an integral part of our team for a long time, and another very good 'call' by Jason Taylor.
  13. Friday in the Rain

    Fantastic pics Six. Thank you! Geez, some of the boys look in sensational Nick for this stage of the pre-season. Clarrie and Jets as well as other standouts who have been mentioned elsewhere.
  14. What's the golfing equivalent of backing into a pack to take an overhead grab Dee?

    From the highlights that we've all seen, this kid looks exciting. If he lives up to that promise, and retains his flowing locks, he'll add to our growing list of cult heroes quicker than you can say 'ginger ninja'. That's got to be a good thing!
