    SEN giving away 6 tickets incl flights to Perth

    Is this part of an ""up you Hungry Jacks" from the Scottish restaurant?

    1964 memories- calling our older supporters

    I was 10 years old. Great uncle Bill was always able to get tickets in the days when you had to buy a series ticket. The pre game at the old MCG Hotel was the first time I'd ever sat in a front bar anywhere. As for the game itself, I'd always loved John Lord. It seemed unbelievable that a bloke as bald as grandpa was actually playing footy. And the revolting Gabelich clocked him - boo. Don Williams was a favourite though with the brycreemed, slick back hair and white ankle bandages. Sadly, the game is a mist. I remember celebrating but didn't that always happen? I mean Melbourne always won. So imagine how shocked I was 12 months later and they didn't make the four!

    Changes v Hawthorn - Semi Final

    The problem for Jeffy is that the version most people want in is 2016 not 2018.

    Congratulations Daisy Pearce (First Mother Daughter/Son pick ever??)

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Freo?? FFS. What player with any brain at all would sign with that shower and play under Lyon? No matter how much cash they shoved at you.

    Sam Murray under ASADA Investigation

    Wow, hold the front page. Millennial does drugs - who woulda thunk it? Clear him to Port.

    I think Hugh has been disappointing at the Aints. Only his first game for the year on Saturday and didn't do much. Bit of size but pass.

    Chris Judd thinks we celebrated too hard.

    Bit of unfair criticism for Judd here. You gotta remember he was captain at Meth Coast where Cousins, Gardiner, Chick etc all knew a thing or two about celebrations. Respect.

    The Jack Watts in 2018 Thread

    Watts may be unique in that by one move he has improved two football teams.

    Friday Night Lights 2019

    Personally I hate Friday nights. The weekend's over and no footy.

    Changes vs Western Bulldogs

    Lewis is the most over rated player on the list. Sure he's got a history - but that's in the poos and wees. He is an exemplary pointer and we cleared Jack Watts to make room for that skill. He can make at least one glaring, goal conceding stuff-up per game and we dropped Bernie Vince to allow him room for that statistic. Maybe we could drop Jones and Viney for his captaincy skills?

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 12

    Damn the torpedoes.

    The Future looks promising!

    I reckon the Doggies were pretty upbeat about heir list post 2016. The Tiggies are certainly fizzing this year. Keep calm and carry on.

    Kent and vandenBerg

    Fritsch is a couple of years younger than VdB was when he was drafted and a completely different body shape and playing style. Smith is a risk.
