  1. Not going to be too harsh on the umps. Frost threw it in the last seconds. If they were paying attention we lose. Oh well. Sucks to be Scullthorn
  2. $650K? Will be lucky not to get shown the door. Runs under it, fumbles, spoils his own. And that 5 meter kick to Jones.... FMD. What a way to kill a teams momentum.
  3. 65 pints! That's heroic! I usually pass out after 15.
  4. Has future coach written all over him. If he lead, I'd follow.
  5. Hmmm. I like this whiner less and less each day. I'm in the camp of 'leave the effin game alone', but his words are just stupid. I really hope he was taken out of context. [censored] teams will get smashed - um yeah. That is what happens to [censored] teams. Always has, always will. But it will make it easier to make a comeback - um yeah. Not even sure what to say after point A. Just go away. Get sacked. [censored] off. You are that annoying kid at school that was always dobbing the rest of us in for having a smoke or copping a feel behind the shelter sheds.
  6. Interesting times ahead. I'm not going to try and re-write history and say that Jesse wasn't a great gun for us, but I do think that our mids looked for Jesse when there were better options about. We did seem to play a little more unpredictable when he wasn't in the team, to the detriment of whoever we were playing. So where does that leave Weed? One swallow does not a summer make, but he has the tools to be a very good player. Good hands, good kick, and, like his grandfather, loves the tough stuff. And he is still a kid. I think that in 4 years time he will be a handful for even the best defenders. But of course nothing is set in stone, but I do like what I see from him so far.
  7. Not enough time. Oh why oh why aren't we in a leap year?
  8. Aha! That explains why I only get ads for porn sites.
  9. It fits for anyone with a first name starting with a J and Goody pushes out the door
  10. I don't care what those pinheads are thinking. It's a love song FFS. Why would you pick that as a theme? Like any more of them need to breed. It's as bad as 'You'll never walk alone'. Much rather be part of 90K rocking as we kick a goal than go through that. That was as bad as the bugler (albeit MH was a little more talented and pulled a better class of chick until his final days) Edit - just thought of something funny. If we ever meet them at the G in a final we should sing to them 'We'll put you back under tarps' Jack Viney was running You were there Two worlds collided And we put you right back under those tarps. I'll be here all week. Try the veal, and don't forget to tip your waitress
  11. Quoted because that needs more love
  12. Yes. That is exactly what I said - that he read Demonland and changed his ways. Good grief! He was a relatively (and I say that because he had an apprenticeship under Roos) inexperienced coach with a lot of interesting ideas. But as innovative as they were they were often unpicked by more experienced coaches, and there were times we looked lost out there, as an also inexperienced team - think Clarkson killing him after a flying start last year, or how our third quarters seemed to have us all at sea. But he adapted. He realised Rome wasn't built in a day. But that is today. Not 2017. I think he and the players learnt a lot in 2018 too. He went back to basics and shelved the gotcha! tricks. Him and the side were not ready for that stuff. 2020 and beyond, maybe, with a battle hardened bunch of players and assistants, and Goody knowing when to try these things and when not to. I give him huge credit for what he is doing, and even more credit for backing off the card tricks and getting back to basics with a team that will win because they are harder, tougher and more determined to win it than the other team. Not from some Hail Mary pass invented at 3q time. I think we are on the same page, and without looking I don't think I was that bad, but I did have my doubts that he was more show than substance in the early days. Liked his style. Liked how he got on with the boys. Liked his moxie. Just didn't like the idea that he thought he could out fox foxes with a team that didn't even know what the real deal was. Love that he has let that go and has them playing good, tough, hard running football. I'd sign him up for another 3 years in a red and blue heartbeat.
  13. He made some mistakes in the early days. Tried to be too smart and re-invent the game. But he learnt and gave us a simpler style. We became a better team because of it. I think I and others were right to doubt (after all we saw Neeld try and do the same thing), but now I have faith. Good list, good coach, good admin. Happy to eat humble pie, but not backing away from anything I said at the time.
  14. I quite liked him. Didn't kick straight enough at crucial moments, and well... there was that brain fart, but I think he was serviceable and a little unlucky to be cut from our list.
