Many aspects of human sexuality are very puzzling. Take celibacy. This can be a choice in life or a condition imposed by environmental factors. While attending a Marriage Encounter Weekend, Tom and Ma

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 can see your logic here redleg

i wouldn't be disappointed to see aaron get a run (if fit enough)

he's too good a player not to be given a chance and he might have been carrying an injury earlier in the year

he's one of the few genuine game breakers we have and saturday's conditions should suit him fine

Sorry DC I do not agree with you.

I think this is a problem that has been with the Dees for too long.

Guys like AD have to learn to earn their spot.

IMO he has not done that all year before the injury.

It is not as though he has only been out of a week or two.

Again IMO we have been let done all year by our more senior players.

Don't drop a kid for him.

Let him play at Casey this weekend and get some fitness and touch back.

I think the poor guy is addicted to that thread.

Try as he might he cannot kick it!

I know how he feels I have a similar problem with single malt.

but I am not really trying to kick that one!

come on rpfc grit your teeth and don't click on you know what.

I just can't do it.

I'm not strong enough.

I agree, let him find his feet at Casey, same as all other injuries coming back.

I really don't have much to contribute here but I thought I would just add to the thread......

and I can see your logic too old dee

however we need to get Aaron back in form and I thought Darwin being his home town might provide the right spark

yeah I know he probably doesn't deserve it and we need to send messages to senior players etc

Hey Redleg i have so far watched 6 eps of "Boardwalk Empire" Absolutely superb up till now. Steve Buschemi is just a legend, always.

Not sure but I think I started getting bored at about 8-10 episodes and stopped watching. Hopefully you will hang in there longer.

Don't want to shock anyone but I haven't seen a Harry Potter movie or read one of the books. Tonight I taped two HP movies on foxtel but note that they are pretty recent. Will I ruin it if I watch the later movies without seeing the earlier ones?

PS. I believe that in one of the books, Harry is made a huge offer by a new school to enrol with them and leave his schoolmates of the last 2 years. No one knows if Harry will leave as he said he will leave it until the end of the school year to decide. His current school has made an offer to keep him, which includes a new desk and bigger food serves in the school tuck shop, but that is way below the offer made by the new school, which includes a chauffeur driven ride to school each day and an exemption from Maths and Physics for the whole year. Apparently the education department is doing everything they can to get Harry to move and it is really pissing off his schoolmates. They have started a blog and are up to 60 pages of posts. The suspense is driving everyone mad. Some people think they know what he is doing while others are insisting they don't. Even the local paper, radio and TV have got in on the act. Can't wait until we find out at the end of the book.

PPS. Apparently the new school is in a crap neighbourhood where no one would know Harry and it is far from his family. Now the education department has said they will compensate Harry's old school if he goes with a new library book but the school will no doubt want at least 2 books.

More news in Harry Potter land. The education department has now said that Harry can't receive the gifts even though another school is giving their star pupil the same sort of gifts. Even someone outside the school is banned from giving him the gifts. Latest news is that a headmaster at another school is being replaced by his deputy headmaster but he still wants to be headmaster and may change schools. The president of his school council is running around trying to stir up trouble with all of the other schools so that people don't concentrate on his school. The education department is really stuffing up the education system.

Went for a walk this morning and it was foggy and cold and I was freezing. By the time I was coming back home the sun was out and I was boiling. You have got to love that Melbourne weather, it's so much nicer than the weather they have in Blacktown.

pffft, LOTR is a masterpiece!

Benno I have not read it for 30 years but back then I found it very heavy going.

Now that might just mean that HP is aimed at kids.

Says something about me perhaps!

I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I've read all the books and some twice. I think the advice to see the first film before watching the others is good, you'll understand some of the infrastructure behind what your watching, but much better to watch them in sequence. If you watched the 6th film in the series "cold" you'd have no idea of what's going on. Get a copy of the first book, it's short and you'll read it in 3 hours or so. That's the best introduction.

If you don't like fantasy you won't like Harry, but having said that you've told me that you think MFC will win a flag in our lifetime so perhaps you do (believe in fantasy).

Your PS is actually brilliant and could so easily be built into the characters and things in the book. Harry is a brilliant "seeker " in a sport called quididich and would be sort by many other teams but his loyalty to his friends and headmaster would mean he'd never leave.

If you've not read the Hobbit or LOTR's they are both great reads but again, you've got to like fantasy.

Quidditch is a fictional Wizarding sport played in the Harry Potter book series. It is described as an extremely rough, but very popular, semi-contact sport, played by wizards and witches around the world. Matches are played between two teams of seven players riding flying broomsticks, using four balls and six elevated ring-shaped goals. In the Harry Potter universe, Quidditch holds a fervent following similar to the position that association football holds as a globally popular sport.

The sport is featured in every Harry Potter book except for the seventh, when Harry Potter is preoccupied in fighting Voldemort. Harry plays an important position for his house team at Hogwarts as the seeker. Regional and international competitions are mentioned throughout the series. In Goblet of Fire, Quidditch at Hogwarts is cancelled for the Tri-Wizard Tournament, but Harry and the Weasleys attend the Quidditch World Cup. In addition, Harry uses his Quidditch skills to capture a golden egg from a dragon (in the Tri-Wizard Tournament), to capture a flying key in Philosopher's Stone, and on two key occasions in Deathly Hallows—getting hold of Ravenclaw's Diadem, and during the final fight with Voldemort—the "unerring skill of the Seeker" is vitally useful to him in snatching an object out of the air.

The sport has been adapted under the name of "Muggle Quidditch" (or simply "Quidditch") to the real world. Since at least 2003, Harry Potter fans have played ball games resembling the Harry Potter sport. In the United States, teams from more than 200 colleges are affiliated with the International Quidditch Association and play tournaments. Furthermore, high-level Quidditch tournaments are a mainstay of Harry Potter Conventions, such as Nimbus 2003, The Witching Hour, and, most recently, Infinitus 2010.

My life feels so empty now. Are there any racehorses in the Harry Potter stories. Actually mine won at Geelong today and have another racing at Caulfield tomorrow.

    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

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date.

    THE GABBA DEMON...STRATION by George

    Melbourne took on Collingwood at the Gabba with its season at stake. The alternatives were a win and a place in the final eight would be on the cards or a defeat in which case the season would be as good as finished. From the very start, the Demons put on a demon...stration of their hunger and their willingness to put everything on the line to win when it mattered.   Right from the first bounce, Braydon Preuss knew that he had to nullify Brodie Grundy. Though his opponent looked tired, h
