  1. Typical classy display by the Poms: 1) Captain a cheat 2) Stealing players from the Colonies to pump up their own pathetic ranks 3) Booing a guy when he's on the ground with a possible broken neck They'll be a Third-world country by the time Bojo's finished with them. Good.
  2. Scratching my head trying to remember but could somebody enlighten me - do we get much say in whether or not Gold Coast get a PP? Can we oppose it? (Who stopped us getting one a few years ago? Wasn't GC was it?) Sorry if this has been covered before, but we need all the help we can get - we are a real team, with flesh and blood supporters, not some Hollywood franchise bunch of clowns. We should do everything we can to stop Gold Coast getting a Priority pick.
  3. Just woke up and checked the score. OMG what an innings. Maybe we're not so stuffed.
  4. Ah well there go the Ashes Was gonna be my compensation for my crappy footy team.
  5. Oh yeah, that's right. Couple of grannies. I went to em - knew we were gonna lose. I'm happy enough with life in general, but that's in spite of, rather than because of, the team i was born supporting.
  6. Bloody disappointing the club has made no attempt to get this clarified by the AFL, registered no complaint. Umps nobbling our greatest (only?) asset. So here we are, yet again, wallowing in the swamp at the bottom of the ladder, where we've been for the fifty years I've been a supporter.
  7. Huh? I must have missed the bit where they said we weren't allowed to post garbage in the General Discussion area.
  8. Being in the General Discussion area is what it's doing.
  9. Now he's asking his fellow bigots to give him $3 million to fund his right to be a homophobe. Using go fund me ie give money to him rather than to some poor kid who needs a liver transplant. Jeez The guy's personal wealth is estimated at $7 mill. I've got lots of family and friends who are Christians but this guy debases the word.
  10. Enjoying lovely warm train home. We can still make the finals!
  11. And I second that. Amazing. God he has a go. Given he's got what appears to be a rather fragile, giraffe-like build, he just throws himself into everything. Should be an inspiration to the rest of the slackers. So hoping he gets all-Oz again.
  12. So sad for you Brad. Lovely guy. Thoughts and prayers with you and your boys.
  13. Hey DV8 - meant to reply to this at the time, but got distracted thanks for all that info pity we look like continuing to be the orphans. Have to make the inner city a marginal seat Get Josh to give us some brass cheers
  14. Hey DV8 - I'm interested in your last point, and I'm wondering whether you (or anybody else) could fill me in. Like you, I despair at us being "homeless orphans" - I think it's been a critical factor in our long-term failure. Just about everybody else seems to have somewhere to call home. A spiritual base. I was horrified to see the Libs giving all that money to the Pies too. Geelong and the Dogs have also received vast amounts of taxpayer money recently. Sydney too, I think. (The Dogs are now campaigning to get home games again, and Kardinia Park is an almost invincible base for the Cats) It all seems so dispiriting. Watching our guys train at Gosch's Paddock is degrading. We're the bloody team that invented the game, and we have to make do with these jerry-built affairs. I'm wondering whether somebody could advise me whether our club is doing anything about improving the situation? What are our club's long-term plans? Do we have a long-term plan? Is there any cause for hope? I looked on the club website, but couldn't see anything (maybe I missed it - I couldn't even find where our offices are) I hope we have got a plan. A goal. I've noticed other teams developing new homes for themselves in recent years. I know it's a huge cost, but you have to start somewhere (I'm a volunteer with the CFA - our little brigade has a kind of twenty year plan to buy a new tanker - it's been a massive effort - we only seem to raise $5-10000 a year, but we're nearly there) Cheers
