  1. Spoke to him before game today. He hopes to be available for selection this week.
  2. My mate’s dad passed away late last year (64 year member). I called the club to let them know and they rapidly arranged a card for the family (also long term members). Subtle, classy and excellent customer service I thought.
  3. Hard to say as the line snakes around in corrals. I’d say maybe 200m, but in terms of numbers perhaps 2000-3000.
  4. I got to the line at 4.30 and the gates opened at 5 pm. Once they opened it didn’t take long to get in. By 5.25 the only walk up seats we could get (there were 6 of us) was at the top of level 4. Couldnt get tix today, so will be a similar experience this Friday.
  5. Universally admired by Dees supporters I would say. Not many people can claim that. Thanks Peter.
  6. I heard him on SEN this morning and the headline is NOT what he said. Being behind the paywall most won't find out what he actually said. i thought what he said was reasonable.
  7. The issue I have is that all the money up for grabs comes from the punters. Yes there are corporate $ but that is because they think there is a positive cost-benefit ratio to get more money off the public. Yet there is ZERO discussion about the average punter getting a share of the new money coming in. How about putting money back into grass roots footy, or reducing the cost of tickets/membership??? We have no say in the debate.
  8. I'm not sure what others thought but the pre-game poem by Rupert Bacall was ignored by many in the crowd, who continued talking between themselves and generally not paying attention. I found it hard to hear the poem. At least that's what happened at ground level in the MCC. I think the announcer contributed to it by not announcing the poem starting very prominently.
  9. Question for those who know more about this than me - is this the final decision? If either party doesn't like the CAS outcome is there any further appeal channel?
  10. Took my 2 daughters to the clinic at Gosch's this morning, run by the whole women's Demons team. Kids loved it and all the women were great with the kids. Hung around afterwards to give all the kids a pink footy, team photo and player cards. Then signed them. My 2 now can't wait to watch tomorrow's game. Great job women's team and MFC!!!
  11. WOW!! To me, that removes any doubt that the Essendon players took TB4, and they probably took a whole lot of other banned substances too. I can't believe this was leaked into the public domain.
  12. I went to the Leighoak last week and there was probably about 50 people there watching. I some go to the Bentleigh Club as well. I've never understood why the club doesn't set up a function at one of these places for interstate games to get some extra revenue.
  13. FWIW, Chip le Grande was on SEN this morning saying the Dank decision would be announced this arvo. He reckons he will be found guilty of all charges except the ones involving actually giving PEDs to Essendon players. Not sure the logic behind that but we will know soon it seems.
  14. Can someone explain how you get a surname with all lower case letters except a B somewhere in the middle?? Important issue I know...
  15. AGREED. Lets not forget that Essendon were an average team in 2011, the won 8 out then first 9 in 2012 before having a run of soft tissue injuries. Definitely trying to get an unfair advantage. We don't want sport to be won by those with the best drugs.
