Damon Munt may get a mention if we lose.

Yeah there were a few mentions of Rex Hunt against Essendon, Clint. Slipped through the barriers somehow. Don't think that will be repeated this time around.

It might be because I'm only understanding every 3rd or 4th word.

Plus Rowan Atkinson gifs.

Rowan Atkinson offers many great gifs.

The Scott Bros. are quickly mounting a case for most giffable characters.

Aren't you Chris....:

Yep. I'm convinced that if they had a larger stage they would be huge memes by now, like if they were NFL coaches or something.

Brad Scott's argument with the Etihad roof last year was comedy gold.

"ian Nankervis" = nervous for those who haven't caught on. BTW my mates reckon I've swallowed the Strine dictionary.

On another note, the Nankervis bros. were referred to as the Leyland brothers for their penchant to traverse the entire backline when moving the ball forward.

And, no, I ain't going to explain who the Leyland brothers were.

For those who don't know...

:) Choke - use your mince pies to read, then use you north and south and say the words out loud - by then your tram and train will have kicked in  and you'll understand what has been written.

If not, i think you are cattle truck and will never understand (said in jest)

:):):) 

Drinking brown cordial helps (and just to confuse brown cordial is not rhyming slang)

And drinking too much brown cordial may make you jan juc - if you do, best to be in the don't be funny - and try not to Con Britt at the same time - could be messy

You've certainly had an education this week Choke, torn confetti..the Nankervis Brothers.  Just wait till we start talking about floggers, the centre diamond and Diamond Jim.  :)

So.

Get on the Bread n Jam and head down the Frog n Toad to the Rubbiddy Dub for a few Richard Geres before the game. After said Sherbets, be sure to have a Snake's Hiss before going to the G. Grab a Dog's Eye with Dead Horse at quarter-time then you might need to brave the MCG dunnies for a Horse and Trap at half-time. If the Dees appear in more s**t than a Werribee Duck at three quarter-time you might be cracking the Jimmy Schmidts, But don't despair, the Rex Hunts still get the Colliwobbles and the Dees can give em the Lemonade and Sars!

Oh oh I know these!

The floggers are BBO's bikie gang!

The centre diamond was when four men with handlebar moustaches rode their Penny-farthings into the middle of the ground, timing their runs so as to create a 'diamond' in the centre. This was seen as a daring display of skill, given it was the fastest a human being could travel at the time.

Diamond Jim was the legendary captain of the above mentioned Penny-farthing team. However he is most famous for riding several miles (I am reliably informed that this is a unit of measure and not in fact a person's name) backwards down Flinders St shouting about the health benefits of tobacco.

And I bet you thought millennials knew nothing about history!

OK so I think this is a good place for this; with all of the talk about the League tinkering with the rules, the link shows that it has been forever thus.  One of my favourite rule changes is  1955 - Boundary umpires’ whistles first used in place of white handkerchiefs.

Enjoy!

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
