    Laughing at the Pies.....

    Don’t feel any sides are supersides this year. Top sides very even - down to one block, one mark, one kick - the season Ounce more “StKilda match” complacency and we’ll be ninth.

    Best of 3 Grand Final

    I believe there be no more Drawn Grand Finals. Now extra time - like all other finals. That was snuck in with very little public discussion. Don’t see the issue with a replay given it’s a one in 40 year event.

    Best of 3 Grand Final

    There’s A Saturday in September unless you play all 3 on the last Saturday, Pies could quickly add to 26 lost GFs.

    One more “Demon” to conquer

    Lost Mitchell, Hannebery, Kennedy now in Selwood territory - occasional cameos. Jack OTW out Always uncover a gem from Riverina, but yeah, gotta do them twice
  14. Miss the GF - hopefully watch the win on TV. Made same call on smaller scale this year - forgoing Week 1 for wedding in Canberra. Pretty sure we’d win when I knew I’d be away. Rather watch a win on TV than witness a loss
  15. Interesting. Recall discussing same with Cat mate early 2000s. What would it be like? Last few years I’ve realised some lifelong ambitions - as the psychologists say - after a while you tend to incorporate them into everyday life. Like we catastrophize our losses and gloss over our successes. In life and football. Have Carlton mate - tells me he’s seen 8 flags - not doing so well in terms of relationships/bankruptcy/alcohol/institutions/ etc. I knew three Pie supporters who took their own lives, few years after 1990 break through. I feel a little cheated in footy terms cos I switched from Hawthorn in 1965. Meanwhile my Hawk brother cannot remember all the Premierships he’s seen. I think if we won I’d shed a tear for the young fella who trained it (Tait carriages) all over suburban Melbourne with 3KZ transistor and beanie to witness another thrashing. Geezus, my heart was pumping - as I listened here in Vietnam- as Dean Kent lined up in Perth.
