It seems no-one noticed the passing of NTSNBS's 10th birthday on 8 July. Belated congratulations to you then, Thread, to your single parent @Redleg, and to all who have sailed in you (me being only a very green rating).

Granted, as @old dee's orphan post on the day glumly reflected, it was the week after the season-ending (😄😆🤣😂) Giant's loss, so there might have been other things on the Good Ship NTSNBS's collective mind...

Tim you seem a touch confused. The unmentionable’s name is not the name of the thread, but only part of it, abbreviated by first letters only. So his name is not No T$ No BS but rather part of the thread title only. Hope that clears it up for you.

Secondly why are you talking about him, as he doesn’t exist on here.

Third, keep enjoying the thread and post on all matters non T$ or non BS, as is the mantra of the thousands of fellow contributors.

Fourth, be nice to uncle Bitters, as he might invite you around to the manor for a tipple, from his latest wine cask, purchased from the local $2 shop, on one of their half price special sale days. You can get a lovely drop for a dollar these days.

Gosh, Redleg, I thought I'd at least have to reach junior officer level for such an invitation!

No confusion at all - though I realise my naming of the Valiant Vessel should have been NT$NBS. My reference, and congratulations, to 'Thread' was to (The) NT$NBS - i.e. No T$ No BS - thread, definitely not, in any way to the individual WSNBN. But, a 'mea culpa' if (as the mealy-mouthed contrite like to say these days) 'anyone has been offended'.

Onwards across the seven seas!

Red, I am deeply wounded.

After all my years of valuable and profound intellectual contributions to this thread you still misrepresent my tastes in vino.

I hereby declare and  caste aside all doubts, Chateau Cardboard has no place in The Manor's fine collection of plonk.

( excepting of course, those occasions when The Manor's budget is a tad strained)

Ahoy there Tim! I’m most definitely a stowaway on the good ship HMAS NT$NBS. I’m actually lucky I wasn’t keelhauled for mentioning the unmentionable. I was, however, thrown in the brig for 24 hours. I have learned the error of my ways and am suitably repentant. Captain Redleg need not ever worry about a mutiny or anything of the sort.

and according to moonie, uncle's taste in wine leaves a lot to be desired, as does his taste in mutton

Now I find out that HWSNBN, thinks he is a cricket umpire as well and once called our beloved Captain Maxie for chucking.

How dare he suggest that Maxie would bend the arm when bowling.

I was done yesterday. Is insomnia a symptom? It's after midnight and I've been able to stay awake watching R23 from 7 minutes to go in the 3rd.

Looking forward to symptoms extending into tomorrow night...

Interesting use of the word ‘caste’ there, Bitter. So do you mean cast aside, as in put aside? Or is there a deeper meaning just lacking a couple of commas. Ie, ‘I hereby declare and, caste aside, etc?’ 😜

It was clearly a spelling error 

He meant cask,

having said this , since the wonderful Chinese government banned red wine from Oz, the cheap red is much better.

not so good for the winemakers, swings and roundabouts, Covid and Demons premiers.  
we live in interesting times.

Go Dees live in 22.

Hello!

Don't think I've ever posted here. Just want to congratulate Redleg on their 10+ year thread after reading the OG post.

Thank you and welcome aboard the good ship NT$NBS.

Enjoy the cruise.

I doubt that is a symptom DC. More likely the result of the 57 years wandering in the wilderness.

With the covid thread slammed shut I am left to discuss the problem on here. Will we be able to attend games again the season. With the case numbers mounting will we get some sort of normal season? 2 weeks ago I thought yes now I am far from sure.

Good pick up Fanatique. I am at a loss to explain that gaffe. Perhaps I need a shrink of the Sigmundian school to undertake some delving into that slip.

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation. This time around they can expect a main

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back! That’s the short form preview of the Melbourne v Hawthorn match up at the Home of Football this weekend. That is not to dismiss the you
