  1. I have relatives and older friends who swear that the umpires hate Melbourne in the 50s and 60s. And just for the record. When Melbourne beat Essendon in the 1941 grand final, Essendon won the free kick count around 40-10.
  2. In the OED there is a picture of the AFL logo next to "unintended consequences".
  3. Players fumble when they don't know what the are going to do with the ball as they approach the ball. They also fumble when they are expecting contact - timid Garlett, for instance, who is only in the team due to injuries. If you know what you want to do, and you are positioned to get your hands on the ball first, you get it and give it regardless of the opposition.
  4. Salem has done a very unDemon thing: he extended his contract and is subsequently having his best year.
  5. Heaven help the competition if we ever work out how to play footy forward of centre.
  6. Frosty the magnificent gangling freak beast.
  7. There were a couple of clear 50s not paid to Melbourne in the last quarter. One to McDonald when a Hawks player booted the ball away. Another when a Hawks player returned the ball to the wrong Demon player after a Demon free. You'd care less, if it wasn't for the lame 50s paid against Harmes for maybe infringing the protected zone.
  8. If ever there is a side I thought we would lose to, it's Hawthorn. Clarko Footy is our Achilles Heel, and on top of that Hawthorn are a long time bogie side. GREAT WIN! (With half a side.)
  9. Ha! What makes anybody think we're going to beat Hawthorn?
  10. Manage of Liverpool in the 60s and 70s.
  11. I first heard Bill Shankly say it.
