    Gaming - we are out!

    Yes I am blaming the Royal Antediluvian Order of the Buffoles (RAOB) myself!

    I have high aspirations for Joel. Can he play the running game on the wing a la Isaac Smith?

    Petracca left knee issue, physio’s had a look and he is off to the rooms. Looked like just a niggle, no details.

    Not so sure, RC played a tennis coach in the TV series I Spy with Bill Cosby as the tennis pro. But played a great cameo in Get Smart as a Turkish waiter in an I Spy spoof episode. Very funny. Not sure he could actually play tennis? I would say god d actor, not so good player.

    Best of 3 Grand Final

    I think this can work. First create 2 more expansion teams to make 20 and divide into 2 conferences of 10. New teams would be playing out of Dubbo and Kalgoorlie. Compromise the draft for the next 5 years with priority picks for the Dubbo Quolls and the Kalgoorlie Miners. Each conference plays each other twice, to get 18 rounds. Top 4 from each conference play off, 1 v 4, 2 v 3. Then winners play off to be conference champions. That’s 23 rounds, then we have a best of 3 AFL World Series Grandfinal playoff. Can’t go wrong with this formula surely!

    This Earth - as WE KNOW IT

    Hey Jackaud, just checking, are you taking the pizz with your wonderful World statement? Wonderful world for some, no doubt, not too Flash for a lot of non human species living in the ever diminishing wild parts of this planet.

    SEN: Best 22 and Draft Needs

    Yes I like the team but hope we can weave in Preuss and Vanders into our best 22 as I would love us to be a physically intimidating team that can match it with the best sides in talent as well. A lot of premierships have been won by nasty sides who blend mongrel with talent.

    Down Memory Lane # 1

    Gee we were done over by the umpires in the bits I watched. What was the free kick count? Is it too late to complain to the Umpy Department?
  13. After preparing for ultimate success in 1989, and then very confidently after 1994 and again post 2000 and even post 2002 I don’t take any previous years form as a guide for the next! Injuries, complacency have always intervened. I hope our club has indeed changed and can build on previous success.

    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    Forget the Shiraz, try the Malbec. In the interests of uplifting this thread as Ernie has been imploring recently, I thought the various Legal Eagles who inhabit this thread might be interested in this set of books I stumbled upon in a Jesuit library in Córdoba, Argentina today while taking a short break from my arduous wine tasting duties. The books date from the early 1700’s and were part of a library of 10,000 books, some stretching back to when printing first began. Unfortunately when the Jesuits were kicked out of South America in 1754 many of the books on science and philosophy were burned by the Franciscians as they were deemed to be heretical!
