As part of my new awakened  mindset, I am on a health kick and am about to get an Açai bowl at the coffee shop nearby. The question I pose is “ will it contain any banana “.

It will probably be  only a short time until Majak and I will appear like identical twins, with our rippling torsos bursting through our workout singlets. The only difference to the naked eye will be my slightly paler skin tone.

Back to the footy though and I guess the construction sector is in full fly, with all the houses being trained down at footy clubs and needing to be rebuilt.

Uh oh, I believe BBO came home via New York. This might explain the purpose of his trip to Indo...

I'm really sad to learn this. Although not a poster I do get many a laugh with all the drivle on here and Jazza with the woes of milking and trying to give up his smokes was always cause for BBO to ad

I read an article this morning Mr. Leg saying there will be a record number of houses built this year. This is no doubt being caused by the Football club effect or FCE for short.

Oh no not bananas again. Show some imagination please you banana loving nutbags (apologies to OD). 

It may well be a deep seated Freudian thing. If so go off and get some psychotherapy but leave the bananas in the fruit bowl and stop boring the well balanced fruit lovers who ditched Freud and psychotherapy years ago and got on with their life. 

And please forget the french Biffen. Too many French films on SBS? Pathetic. . 

Just because you didn’t know one end of a shotgun from the other is no excuse for being such a sourpuss Ernie

For those hanging out for the answer, it is yes, there was banana in the Açai bowl.

I see Preuss is out for a large chunk of the season, as is Hannan.

Love when the media say something about a “star” player and when I see the name, I barely know the guy. Talk about accuracy in reporting, though that is probably an oxymoron.

I am reminded of never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

I've seen that a few times just this week. We shpuld keep an index of these 'star' players. One that stuck put for me was a Collingwood 'star' who I still couldn't recall after checking the name on footywire. I can't tell you exactly who it was because I've already forgotten them again. Staaaaaaaar.

Hope we have enough players to fill the side when the season starts. Seems like quite a few are going down with injuries.

Yes and the house looks as solid as a rock Mr. Leg.

Just noticed that this is page 1066.  That's when the bananas invaded the little island off Brittany near France.

Did not know France grew Bananas,   Any comments from the linguists ?    We could all be running around painted blue (and red) !

Oh No the worst possible thing has happened ahead of Dees 2021 campaign!

Cyclone in Nth QLD has ruined the banana crop. Shortages expected and prices will increase.

Think I might go back to bed.

Good news about our bumper crop of bananas then, as I think our border is still closed we get to keep them all to ourselves.

YUM YUM YUM

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom. That stat

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h
