  1. I am an apostophile - I use them a lot.....
  2. You know., I don't post much but I have been reading the boards for many years. I always thought you were a bit odd, but I'm tolerant so I let personal opinions slide. However; when you slate Lewis like that, and I saw no reason to think he wasn't committed to the cause, it goes beyond tolerance and you need to be called out. I rate Lewis and his contribution to the club. I do not rate self indulgent internet dweebs with agendas and bad attitutudes. (Some may say simpeltons). If we applied the Roos policy on here I'm sure you would be one of the first to go.
  3. Yeah. Me too. As a West Torrens supporter Steven Stretch was said to be the least likely to succeed of a talented bunch of SA boys to move to the VFL. I took an immediate interest in him and was wrap to get Billy. Had high hopes but not to be. Good luck to the young fellow for the future and his whole family.
  4. I don't have many football stories, but one day a few or so years ago, when Ratten was coach of Carlton, I was on a plane with the Carlton side. I was seated close to the coaching staff and was listenning/eaves dropping a bit. Wasn't hard as they were speaking quite freely. Anyway, Richardson was the stand out. He had a laptop and was going through things with Ratten (who didn't seem interested), other coaches but particularly individually with players. It was a while ago so details are sketchy but I think the flight was to Brisbane and he was preparing for a game against the Lions. The main thing I took away was how keen and energetic he was, and also that Ratten was asking who their seconds were playing in the VFL that week, it took a while to get an answer from someone. I found, and still find it, amazing that someone in a management position like that, and most of his team, were not across such aspects. Anyway, Richarson stood out on that day and as many have said - I think we have picked up a good football person who loves the game more than the industry.
  5. I think if we program his pre season and mindset right Gus could be a prolific ball winner off half back and push into AA contention. But he has to want to own the position.
  6. Did I miss something with the selections last week? Why was Petty dropped, and is it likely he will be an in for next week?
  7. I think ours were contaminated with Mogodon or Valium.
  8. I need to watch that again tonight now. One of my favourites.
  9. I am one who wants to see him tried as a forward. Also as a 2nd ruck, where hopefully some time on the ball free up his mind a bit and let him enjoy his footy again. Release the siege mentality a bit. I think it might be weighing him down.
  10. I would play OMac forward, and agree with Bitters - Jones to the forward line.
  11. I think he means Bob Crane (played Hogan on Hogans Heros TV show). He was bashed to death mysteriously.
  12. JKH was in the rehab group, along with spargo and KK. It may have been Toby Bedford he was watching. Trac was in the main group but Oliver, Viney and Jones were also in rehab.
  13. You do realise its pre-recorded right?
  14. Sad that I understand that post.
  15. Cooks great a great chicken with some Thyme and bacon.
  16. The 1960s just called, they want their post back.
  17. If I was in Melbourne, we would have already been to a session because.....it was the school holidays. It now isn't. That is the point. You are missing the point about how well attended this activity has been over the years and the good that it does to the supporter base up here. Given the two games at the Gabba this year I would have thought it would be the year to really drum up support. As D77, it only has to be a BBQ and meet and greet with the players and a kick of the footy.
  18. My first thought when I read the club's email was to take the kids out of school and take a day off. Wife vetoed that very quickly. I also sent an email to the club explaining my displeasure. Even through the performances of the past years I could find positives and we stayed fat with the club. But this really p's me off and stinks of arrogance. There is two games at the Gabba this year and would have spent hundreds of dollars on the functions etc. Right now I don't think I want to.
  19. Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. We have been going for a few years now. We bought memberships with this session the only highlight up here (qld) for years and they put it 9am on a friday when people have work and the kids have school. My daughter is a Young Demon member and the email was sent to her. Talk about neenah neenah. Kids are devestated. Wife is upset too as we ussually call back through Mooloolaba to pick up some awesome fresh prawns. I'll finish by saying this event is usually well supported and really successful.
  20. Scully And then I would play him at Casey every week. Yes, I am that vindictive.....
  21. My Daughter (13) has long been a Nathan Jones but is also rapt with Daisy these days. The 20 yr old Son is a big Max Gawn trajic and I am completely torn between my love of Jayden Hunt's speed, Oliver's handballing and nifty Nev Jetta for just being Nev.
  22. I think Gawn and Wagner in. Watts and jones out. Pedo to replace Watts. Wagner to free up Lewis/Vince/Salem to cover Jones' role. Wish it was trenners.
  23. I was also worried about the lack of ruck depth at the end of the trade and draft period. Its not hindsight just because I didn't post it at the time. Its an important position and I didn't think we had enough coverage. You always need a plan, a backup plan, and a backup to your backup. I liked what I saw of Flip at the Maroochydore session, can't comment at all on King. They are just not ready yet to be viable options.
