  1. I have been wondering about this for a long time - it seems blindingly obvious and I am amazed that it hasn't raised a murmur amongst the footy journos. Essentially, the Bombers must have offered huge compo packages, otherwise there would have been a class action through the courts. If you cast your mind back to last year, the rumours were that Dyson Heppell (and his family) was furious with the way he had been treated by Essendon and was almost certainly going to leave. Same, I think, with Michael Hurley. Nek minnit, they re-sign and are as committed as ever to the Bombers. It seems to me that they have been able to rort the system by paying out large chunks of contracts as compensation. I take it that the AFL will be sweeping this under the carpet?
  2. I remember a game vs Hawthorn in about 2009/10, just as they were hitting their straps. We went in ahead at half-time, but when I saw the Hawks walk slowly out of the race and right through the Melbourne players at the start of the second half, I knew we were about to get bullied!
  3. I just had a look at the Melksham incidents - Hanson goes down like a shot dog each time: did Melksham snipe him both times or was Hanson playing for the frees?
  4. That is an awesome idea. Look forward to hearing some of the Demonland greats in person - good luck!
  5. Not bad going - Lovett didn't quite make the cut, but pretty good otherwise. Any thoughts on this Saturday's lotto numbers?
  6. She was co-commentating the Doggies/Adelaide(?) Rd 1 game and said that she grew up barracking for the Demons.
  7. And 2007-2013 needs a clinical psychiatrist!
  8. 'zackly - Speak softly and carry a big stick!
  9. I'd also imagine that the fact he has made his contract decision has eased his mind a bit.
  10. I spoke recently to a family member of Jack Hutchins, who said that whilst it hadn't worked out at GC, he was determined to give it another crack, and if that meant going via the VFL, then he would do it. Hope he has another great year.
  11. Terlich was also delisted with M Jones and Grimes.
  12. Beat me to it: Ballantyne's is a Melbourne manufacturer of butter.
  13. That is a fookin classic! I thought Knifeduck was funny, but that's knocked it into a cocked hat.
  14. Don't agree at all - it sounds like damage limitation.
  15. Well, that's nice, dear. "As of yesterday afternoon" FFS!
