Where I am in Tom Price in WA paying $4.30 for a coffee would make my day, Just went into town to get some lunch and a mocha coffee (hot) chips and gravy and a cream roll $24. Got to love small mining towns lol

At those prices hope you are mining diamonds. If you are prepared to pay those prices I have this bridge that goes across Sydney Harbour and I would be happy to sell it to you, only because you are a Melbourne supporter.

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

I really like the Renegades team, but they play at shittyhad....Might have to jump on the Stars.

As long as they don't play in red and blue or for that matter, white with some red and blue, they should be ok.

I think "Lookout Mama, Theres a white boat comin up the river!" is the best opening line of any song.

What about " Australians all let us rejoice for we are young and free" . That is a pretty hard rocking opening.

My son wants to play for the Dees. His greatest fear is not whether will ever be good enough to get drafted, but ending up at Collingwood.

He wants to know that if he is adopted by an eligible former Melbourne player can he drafted as a father - son.

I like

"Some People call me the space cowboy"

second line arguably better

"Some call me the gangster of love"

He could always go to the Pies, and in the 2nd year of his contract put off all negotiations until the end of that year........

Little Creatures all the way for me and I'm proud to say I was the only Queenslander (after 22 years I'm now comfortable saying that) not to watch the origin decider on Wednesday night! I'm a bit disappointed you didn't throw our lack of daylight savings in my face. I have no response to that!

Good Beer !!

Very Demons of you GV.

I thought that bar in your garage might be for VB cans in which case it wouldn't matter if you only had a piece of MDF on some crates .

"Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey,

"Mamma, Mamma. There's far too many of you crying"

And my vote for the worst lyrics ever in a hit song are

"Red light, yellow light, green light, go!"

From Def Leppards "classic", Pour Some Sugar On Me.(the song title comes in a close second)

Genius.

You got ripped off twice then, the price and the taste.

In other good news, our only remaining working photocopier is broken.

How is it that we can fly people to the moon, but nobody has invented a photocopier that doesn't get paper jammed. Seriously.

Their breakdowns are remotely controlled by photocopier technicians when their mortgage is due, they need holiday cash or they get a hankering for another Faberge Egg.

I am 98% sure anyways.

You know what they say about Fridays.

Monday morning feels so bad

Everybody seems to nag me

Comin' Tuesday I'll feel better

Even my old man looks good

Wednesday just won't go

Thursday goes too slow

I've got Friday on my mind

I'm gonna have fun in my city

I'll be with my girl, she's so pretty

She looks fine tonight

She is out of sight to me

Tonight, I'll paint my friend

Tonight, I'll lose my head

Tonight, I've got to get tonight

Monday, I have Friday on my mind

Robert Plant, because its hard to sing a song without them. I know what you mean though. Jimmy Page is a great guitarist.

You think I get Youtube access at work? Come on now.

I barely get Demonland access :rolleyes:

They decided to block internet shopping sites too, until they realised we work at a fashion company and they were facing an employee strike. Good times.

    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

Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    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
