  1. I noticed Bugg making that 'titanic' pose after his goal last week, in front of Jack Watts, as a bit of a send up of Watts's celebration of his own goal the previous week, mimicking the same stunned facial expression.
  2. 4th in Round 2 this year?
  3. It was great post-Watts-goal TV footage showing Taylor Adams, having made those unsuccessful Melbourne vs successful Collingwood remarks in the week prior, slumped on hands and knees and puffed out after a futile, distant chase of Watts, looking down at the ground dejectedly.
  4. Has Demonland really sunk to such depths that Cameron Ling gets his own thread on here? The only special comment he ever seems to manage to come up with is "they have all the momentum!" whenever a team kicks a few goals. Thanks for pointing that out to us every time Lingy - great observation, we would never had worked that out for ourselves.
  5. That incident when Watts was targeted by their players seems to have been greatly overrated and overhyped ever since to me, with all the "haha welcome to AFL football Jack" talk. At the time he wasn't actually crunched or hurt or anything, he just got up and took his free kick and played on.
  6. Shouldn't Gawn be down to 11 weeks this week? Thought it was 12 weeks last week - but who's counting...
  7. It seems to be additional to the Melbourne sponsorship, perhaps seeking exposure to more than one state/region: "Mr Lu said finding a strong community spirit was key to the sponsorship and said the airlines’s sponsorship of Melbourne Football Club was evidence of its commitment to top-level sport in Australia."
  8. "Lynden Dunn quickly bringing the ball in from full-back kicks straight to McDonald-Tipungwuti, who converts from 20m out. Terrible error. Dons 88, Pies 92"
  9. But back then Jones wasn't the 28 year old, with more games under his belt and existing captaincy experience that he now is.
  10. The deal's been extended, according to an AHG announcement this morning. No details regarding term or dollars.
  11. If they get a priority pick I will console myself with the very comforting thought that Essendon have been denied the first pick.
  12. Adelaide have been referred to as the fruit loops, and sometimes licorice all sorts, because of their coloured looped jumpers, rather than fruit tingles. But yeah, Adelaide.
  13. A good weekend for MFC. Not only a win and still in finals contention, but thanks to Gold Coast, they have now avoided the humiliation of being the only team to have lost to Essendon this year.
  14. Nathan Jones was asked at the today's press interview whether they could find a spot for Hogan, and he replied: "oh come on, that's a drastic call. I think we can easily find a spot for him!"
  15. On Footy Classified this week Matthew Lloyd made the comment that T Mac should not be expecting as much as $700k because of his delivery, or lack thereof, then they crossed to footage of one of TMac's classic brain-fade passes across ground last week as evidence.
