Clichés

Recommended Posts

I thought this time of year might be a good chance to look back at clichés we've used over the season.

Some of my favorites:-

"I'm a glass 1/2 full person". (Navel gazer.)

".....taller players take longer to mature...." Sometimes preceeded with "We all know"

I think there's been an "...elephant in the room...". That's a real now expression. I'm just looking for places to use it.

My favourite " ...you have to give something to get something ...". I call that the loser's cliché.

What about ".. Moderators, please lock this ...". I've copped that a couple of times. To use something I think may become a more used cliché soon "I wear it as a badge of honour."

Of course the worst one I heard over the year was "[so & so] defeated Melbourne ..[some scores]"

Yes, I'm bored.

The glass is always full unless it's in a complete vacuum. It's more a matter of whether it is full of liquid.

Haven't heard of "the reality bus" since it hit Neeld when he wasn't looking!

"Going through the process" and "One game at a time"

They both annoy me.

In fairness though, the players can't really win, if they show any arrogance, the media jumps on them.

How about "they are training the house down" (if that is a cliché)

LOL. Yes, but now they (whoever they are) are questioning if there is something in a vacuum too. I hope that is explained to me in my lifetime.

FWIW has to be the most overused, unnecessary and infuriating acronym I've come across on Demonland.

It's definitely a demonland cliché.

... (FWIW, I'm excluding myself from this particular cliché as I've never used it..)

Incorrectly calling an abbreviation such as FWIW as an acronym can be equally infuriating.

'Without doubt, this is the worst team we've picked all year'

My fave that covered rounds 2-22 this year ;)
