alas, the latter

No. Never ever. I wonder how long this thread can hold out the 'other' thread in terms of posts and pages. I give it 7 days max.

Phew. Gotta come up for air. I’m at a very  murky point in this thread. Footy-wise 2011 was depressing, but just when I thought it couldn’t possibly get any darker, the season ends and yeah, it sinks to a new low. In particular, Old Dee is ready to throw the towel in. What’s also sad is posters saying maybe 2012 is our year to win the elusive flag, not knowing it’s still 10 years away. This, sprinkled throughout with next level wtf moments, makes for interesting reading, to say the very least. 
I’ve yet to ‘meet’ Special Robert. I sincerely hope he brings some cheer. 
OK, ima dive back in. If nobody hears from me before the end of the day, please send a search party. 😁

Has anyone made this nomination yet?...

Current AFLW Rising Star and Goal Of The Year nominee A.Bannan for Figurehead of the good ship No T$ No B$ ?

Edit: If that seems a bit sexist, Commodore?

Wouldn't worry me, from up on the bridge.

Just realised that might have looked like me asking you if it was sexist, Commodore! It was meant to be a nomination of AB to that less-gendered position but I should have realised you have it (and several others, no doubt?) wrapped up, Commodore. Is Vice-Commodore vacant?

Can someone tell me what this Sheilas playing cricket for The Ashes is all about? 

When I played cricket the Sheilas used to bring afternoon tea. Nice stuff too - jelly slices and quarter cut sangos............. and of course, they were there for the after game desert!  ( after a jolly good booze up )

Arrrrh the good old days. Why change a perfect system?

Calling @dieter ! 

Hey Skinny, I know you're a Brocken down hack fast bowler, so that makes you an authority.

See my above post and tell me your view on Shielas playing cricket.

I would also ask @Biffen  who claimed to be a batsman of some note but he's usually under the influence of drugs, so any reply is questionable.

A few facts first: I was the opening bowler, and opening batsman. I was not only the greatest living German cricketer, I was also one of the fastest bowlers on the planet. One batsman I bowled a bouncer to turned to the wicket keeper and said, Shivers, I heard that whistle...At the House of Ill Fame named after a prominent pastoralist whose first name was Rupert, I won the bowling Average one year, the All Rounder trophy the next and would have won the batting average the last year had not the captain run me out for 52 in my last innings.

As for afternoon teas and scones and jellies, what I know for sure is that during the tea break in a Sub District match against Balwyn - I was playing for Sunshine - I helped myself to a scone from the visitor's table and only discovered a bee had attached itself after it stung my cheek. I have had no time for afternoon tea breaks since.

As for the capacity of women to to play cricket, I admit I wouldn't know because I never ever watch it. I'm way too busy writing great litracha.

Regarding cricket you’ve won quite a lot, dieter.

I have never played cricket yet I won something that (with the utmost respect) kicks all your winning’s [censored]. I won ‘Classic Catches’ a few years ago and a year’s supply of KFC is pretty hard to beat! 🥳
The prize also included $2000, but that’s not nearly as exciting.

Forgot to gloat about winning $2000 😝

Oh, you correctly nominated the winning catch by someone else.

Not nearly so intriguing...

Geez Tim, sorry to disappoint. 🙃 Anyways, what an astounding feat that would’ve been, to have taken a prize-winning catch when I’ve never played cricket.  🤔

We see you've managed to come up for the air of various other threads, so we assume you to be OK.

But when you're back in this briny on your Special Hunt, could you also keep an eye out for The Origin of the Bananas, please.

Define ‘OK’  
Just because I appear to be alive and well, doesn’t necessarily mean I’m not mentally scarred beyond reparation. 🤪

I’m only up to page 33 and the bananas discussion has only just taken off. But I tell you what, Tim… this thread should be made compulsory reading for students of advanced psychiatry. Seriously.

Give my regards to 57 and 64 on the way through (in fact the 50s and early 60s generally I hope are rewarding for you!)

And be sure to post your consulting hours when you finish, Doctor.

Over to you to interpret, WCW.

Sorry about that, Chief. 'Obtuse' is becoming my middle name?

Commodore = @Redleg(refer my earlier (obtuse) posts)

I was proposing he dreamt his encounter with S.Freud.

S.Freud wrote on the interpretation of dreams.

I was proposing that, in wading through this thread, you would have earned a doctorate in the advanced psychology you suggested was needed to do so.

I thus threw it to you to interpret Redleg's dream.

See, that wasn't so hard!😉

Was it?😮

    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
