In apropos to the contents of BTs head

My local coffee shop has put up a notice 'To keep prices low there will be a surcharge of 1.6% on efts'.

Ah yes, very well written..

The AFL injury report states he had a corked upper leg. 

Well that is consistent with what I saw, rather than buttocks.

He still may not get up given short week for them.

Expect all restaurants and cafes to  increase prices pretty dramatically,  to cover rising food and running costs. Fact of life these days.

Trying hard to not put too fine a point on this but perhaps it’s a corked lower buttocks? I mean, in terms of applying an ice pack, where does the buttocks end and the upper leg begin? And does it matter? Ie, is there a difference regarding recovery of such? Serious question as I’ve never had a corked anything. 
Regardless, I hope he fails the fitness test today.

On a lighter note: it seems tomatoes are the new bananas…

Curse you, BBO! You’ve put the mozz on me…

I bought one this morning ($1.90, for just one!), just cut into it and it’s all green and gross on the inside. I should’ve gone the soggy newspaper route. 😡

He didn't seem very confident on 360 the other night, about being ok to play.

Wash your mouth out.

I just had a banana smoothie from Green Cup shop, which opened today around the corner from my place.

It is still the drink of choice for the discerning person.

Had a few of them. It really depends on the severity of the corky, they get graded into three categories. Using a leg as the example:
1. Mild – Not much swelling, nearly full range of motion
2. Medium – Possible swelling, difficulty walking
3. Severe – Bad swelling and internal bleeding, high difficulty walking, may need crutches. 

The first week is usually the toughest. The location of this one doesn’t sound great so hopefully there was something to it and he can’t get that leap!

Will Ashcroft, likely number 1 pick, has selected the Lions, under the father son rule, in the same week as Sam Darcy, another father son top 3 pick, makes his debut for the Dogs and a week after Jamarra Ugle Hagen, a NGA number 1 pick, kicked 5 goals in a game.

JUH was taken the year before the AFL changed the goal posts, stopping the Dees taking Mac Andrew as a NGA player and then again the following year, once again changing the goal posts, which might stop us getting another NGA player Finn Emile-Brennan.

Yep some teams get a lot of luck.

Hopefully BBB gets back to his best and we then go with Weid getting the 3rd best backman. Atm its looking like Melk/Weid for that spot.

Well the jury is back in after last night. Another KPF who was only as good as Brown and we win that game  last night. Melsham was never a KPF and never will be. Play Smith even if he has only one game at Casey this time around. time to give JVR a chance. 

Also time to replace a few who have been poor for weeks.

ANB, Spargo and Sparrow have been poor for weeks out this week IMO. 
if we keep doing the same as the last six weeks we will get the same result.

Kick some of the easy missed chances and we win easily.

New tactics this week, bomb long into the left forward picket( to an out numbered sole tall key forward with all small forwards to stand 20-30 metres away and at all costs, ignore any leading forward, or one who has made space.

Things are deadly quiet at The Manor too Red! 

Nearly time to uncork a shiraz.

Do they have corks in the cask?

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro
