  1. Max Walker on The Late Show!

    What a great bloke Max was. Wore number 1 and was a number one fella. In terms of the Late Show, my favourite was Grassby, Grills, Nudge and Plumb, instead of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
  2. Famous MFC jumper number

    Donny Williams. Number 25. An absolute dasher and a star. 5 time premiership player was named on the HBF in our team of the century.
  3. Farewell Jack Watts

    That's fine. I have no problem with that. But the question remains, at what price?
  4. Farewell Jack Watts

    A total disgrace. If we win a flag I'll eat my words gladly. IF. Never, ever eat your own.

    Whatever the "criticism", it has been aired very publicly and as I said, JW doesn't deserve that. Get the job done, sure, but don't publicly bag the guy. Being told in public that in doing your job, you don't put in is pretty demeaning. http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/afl-trade-news-watts-not-fit-for-melbourne-selfish-ablett-the-wrong-cat-tom-rockliff-wants-out/news-story/a382e18c25c094586b74db384b6673d3

    In the main I agree with this. I find it difficult to understand why the club has been so public about Jack's so-called shortcomings. Sure, go to the trade table with him if you want to, but do it quietly behind closed doors. Regardless of his failings, JW does not deserve such a public airing of his perceived faults. That said, I get a sense that there is a lot more to this than we know. But just what that may be, who knows?

    Precisely. While making pragmatic football decisions - as is imperative in this day and age - the methodology seems a little off to me as well.
  8. SSM postal vote

    WTF. My mind is anything but "hateful". I do not wish for the bastardisation of democracy, I simply witness it on a daily basis from manipulating politicians on both sides of the political fence. The hateful speech comes from those that seek to demonise those who happen to be in same sex relationships.
  9. SSM postal vote

    Not at all. Clearly you did not read my post very well. I hate the bastardisation of it. You will see the result of democracy at its finest, when a resounding yes vote gets up in the redundant plebiscite that Turnbull foist upon us, under the guise of an "election promise", which was more an abrogation.
  10. SSM postal vote

    Ahh that old red herring. Governments aren't voted in. Tired ones are voted out. Trying to claim a mandate from an electorate that is tired of mainstream politicians is moot. We elect our so-called representatives to get the job done. Nowadays, pollies only react to the 24 hour news cycle and 5 second sound bytes. Most people couldn't tell you which of the so-called election promises they remember. Notwithstanding the fact that election promises are consistently broken as a matter of course. The Marriage Act is a man made piece of legislation, it is not not derived from a particular piece of religious text. Religious institutions will still conduct themselves in the manner they see fit and in this country we still have freedom of religion, in terms of choice. I was brought up a Catholic, but although I was legally divorced, the Catholic church will not allow me to re-marry in one of their Churches, as a divorcee. And what of the level of domestic violence in heterosexual relationships? Have you seen the stats? Oh, but it is OK for a child to witness his abusive father beat the child's mother, but let us not subject a child to a loving relationship of a same sex couple. Of course, the Churches of various colours, which seek the moral high ground, are damned by their own abusive histories.
  11. If I don't laugh I'll cry

    Several weeks ago my wife booked a trip to Vietnam. When I noticed the dates booked, I realised that I would be away for the GF. I said to her, why didn't you check the dates with me first? The Dees may well be at the 'big dance, and with these dates I will miss it'. Fast forward to last Saturday and I was wishing I could get on the plane then and there. As with many of us, I have had to endure the ribbing of mates, who see slagging MFC supporters as a sport in itself. I just grinned and beared it, believing that we had turned the corner and September.....even October action was assured. Why do I/we do this to ourselves? I was angry like many of us. I was irrational as well, disbelieving of some of the selections and moves the coaching panel made. Why wasn't Frost playing? How can the team be so complacent to put in such an insipid first quarter performance? Surely the coach failed to get the boys up for this game, as was his responsibility. In the clear light of day, I was actually relieved, because in my view, we would have simply been making up the numbers. What still remains is that this group of players needs to shoulder responsibility for not realising the importance of last Saturday and getting themselves up for it. So often this year, even with some of our more notable wins, there were periods where we went to sleep. I hope Jonesy is right and the players 'pain' will give them the resolve to make amends next year. But I am not getting any younger and I can only believe it, when and if I see it. Here's hoping the almighty will shine down on us just once, before I depart the mortal coil.......... but I won't be holding my breath. Why do we do this to ourselves, I keep asking? Anyway, I will pack my bags and head off to the heat of South East Asia. Knowing my luck, my seat on the plane will be next to a smug and feral filth supporter.

    It's called irony
  13. Rocket Eade Sacked

    No, the Gold Coasts Suns are is one football team.
  14. Rocket Eade Sacked

    The issue goes far deeper than that I am afraid. The rhetorical question is based on the fact that they appear to be a football club in name only. They have been surpassed by GWS who entered the competition after them. Let's not forget that the AFL's preferred option at the time was to relocate North Melb. As pointed out above, regardless of the code, no notable sporting franchise has succeeded up there.

    Is the GC Suns now irrelevant?
