  1. Anyone else feeling sick in the guts

    Cassandra was a prophetess who was always right but never believed. So if you really are Cassandra, please prophesy that the Dees will win the next 6 flags ...
  2. The No T$ No B$ Thread

    I stand corrected; thanks WJ. "My Three Tons" would presumably rate better than "The Biggest Loser" Perhaps Deeman's information relates to AFLX? (whatever the hell that is).
  3. Time to ditch the Runner

    Get rid of the runners. Should have gone the way of paper confetti behind the goals once the interchange came in. I don't mind the water people, but the runners seem to be only an excuse for the cameras to show the Scott brothers or Clarko having a meltdown in the box and abusing the furniture. Imagine how much more entertaining that would be if there was no one to speak to at the other end of the phone ...
  4. The No T$ No B$ Thread

    You know all too well, WJ, that there is only one way to derail this thread, and it is mentioned in the title (hint: it is not the part about bullsh!t, which appears to be far more honoured in the breech than the observance). BTW I have no idea why Deeman would think Phat Phil would be playing for the Giants, unless there were doughnut-based incentives in the contract ...

    DC, I don't care if you have been rogering the Duke of York with a prize-winning leek! There is no place for words like that on this thread!
  7. Anyone else feeling sick in the guts

    That is one hell of a case of gastro --- been to the doctor about it, DC?
  8. Rare Robbie Flower Highlights

    Mmm.... not so sure about that, OD. Yes, of course, Flower had poor games, but your last sentence kind of says it all. Also, in 1981 we won a single game, by a point over the Bulldogs (who finished second-last) with Robbie taking a hangar in the goal square and kicking the winning goal, IIRC. Best and fairest that year: Steven Smith. Smith was a good player, no doubt about that, but the 1981 team would have to be at least as bad as the 2013 one ... Robbie came third in the Bluey in 1981, behind Smith and Brent Crosswell. Playing only 16 games might have been an issue, as Robbie did seem to suffer more than his share of injuries.
  9. Rare Robbie Flower Highlights

    I remember one piece of play in about 1984 when Robbie won his own ball in the centre, went for a run, dodged about 3 players and took a shot from about 50, which just missed. Cue Barassi yelling "Jeez Robbie you are ordinary sometimes!". I think he was a victim of his own consistency, as a higher level of play than most was just considered normal. I can understand the Brownlow votes to some extent (when there are only 3 votes to give, it is hard to give any to a side that is thrashed), but I am buggered if I know why Robbie has one Bluey and Chunk (no disrespect to him) has three ...
  10. Hmmm ... without wanting to get too picky, I don't think I have seen the three bolded bits above collected together in this way, unless it is the No T$ No B$ thread and 'lack of common sense' ...

    How far is to Compare? And how many people live there?
  12. The No T$ No B$ Thread

    What is a year without a countdown? Is there such a thing?

    Maybe she is fat lady and is singing because the countdown is now just about its nadir ...

    Stop braying about it!
