  1. Melbourne Town Hall, with Tarax on the house.
  2. If we're talking the next couple of weeks then a little tap work from Tyson Fury plus odd chop out from Deontay Wilder should do the trick.
  3. Fun fact: Chris Aitken is bro. of Wilbur Wilde.
  4. Can still remember "Dillon!!!!!" called by commentators when he took pack marks. Sadly we couldn't get Dillon, Aitken and Parke onto the ground much otherwise 60s and 70s could have been very different story.
  5. Graham Molloy and Stan Alves both could roost beautiful torpedoes in the early 70s, before that kick was banned!
  6. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1964-Mobil-MOBIL-FOOTBALL-PHOTOS-1964-SET-OF-40-CARDS-vfl-afl-/401942058816
  7. Can sometimes see them on eBay, such nostalgia.
  8. He was one of my '64 or '66 Ampol/Mobil player cards.
  9. I think Dean refers to the incident in The Red and Blue video, was still adamant that Ron hit him.
  10. That was my earliest childhood memory watching this on WOS. Dean went down like a bag of spuds. Melbourne rampaged through home and aways second half of season then struggled in finals without Barassi. Same thing also happened to Ditterich in 66 and Neville Crowe in 67.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. So don't shoot the messenger this is just what my boss heard on 3AW.... initials SG.... announcement, Sunday.
  14. It was on 3AW this morning so it's on the public record.
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
