  1. During '67 we were being talked about as a final four side until a late slump. Ditto'71, ditto '76, '84 until Essendon smashed us at VFL PARK. Some minor glory after that but afl is now basically a premier league and Frost to Hawks is a travesty. Take up a hobby, it's never too late.
  2. ok, boss said that on AW this morning coach would be sacked. am just passing on what i heard. was on the radio and i have no reason to think this would be a joke.
  3. So don't shoot the messenger this is just what my boss heard on 3AW.... initials SG.... announcement, Sunday.
  4. It was on 3AW this morning so it's on the public record.
  5. So noone listens to 3AW. Just got told by someone at work there will be a major announcement on Sunday. Looks like we will have to take the good with the bad...
  6. This post is another sad illustration of the Dees' backstabbing and white-anting culture and why we have owned the bottom half of the ladder for over half a century. So much for a supporter website...
  7. Stan Alves had the distinction of playing his first three games in an all-winning, all-conquering demons team in 1965. the following week we were taken apart by the saints (and ian cooper) and for the next ten years his demons were our demons.
  8. This was 'peak demons', when everything was set up for melbourne to win flags. when the clubs had complained long and hard enough change came, including recruiting zones and loss of the mcg. barassi saw the writing on the wall and took his mojo elsewhere. at least we ended up with ross dillon from shep. zone in 1966.
  9. That was a ripping write-up by George 'on the outer' but there is a valid point made about how online sites provide/ encourage anonymous player sprays by internet experts. How many of these fair weather fans can 'put their body on the line'' the way AFL players are required to. PS I am not referring to George here, but the many cowards who regularly slag our players.
  10. The 1966 rebuild seems like yesterday. Ken Jungwirth, Syd Catlin, Rowarth, Hugh Bromell, Ken Rowe, Frank Vearing, Chapman, Stewart, Leahy, Neville Stone, Rob Dowsing, Kerry Ryan, the list goes on, Dillon, Feldmann... Flash forward to 2020 and it's swapping out players, early draft picks and demonland summer updates.
  11. Ronald Dale used to go mental at players all the time.
  12. You obviously missed the 1956 season...
  13. I remember our own Bob Johnson - playing for Oakleigh - terrorising VFA sides in the 60s when Melbourne had no forward line.
  14. Last ruckman who was captain. Big Carl?
  15. V. average ball release, not your neville fields or barry price.
  16. Earl oF Spaulding like Jesse H. planted his non-kicking foot so had no follow through. Like Jesse also in that he was a very accurate shot round the corner shot.
  17. Lee Harvey Oswald, high impact with intent.
  18. What about all the clubs we have beaten in a finals Game who have subsequently won a flag themselves. The list is impressive: Swans,North, Carlton, Collingwood, Hawthorn, W. Bulldogs, Essendon, Adelaide, West Coast from memory.
  19. Changed his style dramatically. In 1963 was a Debonair, understated commentator.
  20. Was 'I tipped this'. I'm so nervous I out the cigarette in my mouth the wrong way". Closing seconds, '66 gf, Butch and Mike exchange.
  21. It was Umpire Blew, the umpire not the limerick.
