AFLW: Rd 04 vs Western Bulldogs

Happy with this. If they're letting crowds back in I could mosey on down after lunch at the Victoria Hotel just around the corner. I do hope this doesn't leave the girls with a slew of interstate games to play at the back end of the fixture though.

This use to be known as Hart's hotel in my younger days even though it's correct name was Victoria Hotel

Hi DD. It still has Hart's Hotel written on the Victoria St side of the pub.

A Sunday afternoon in footscray (Covid permitting). I'm looking forward to it.

Doggies will be no push over but i'm sure the girls will be focused on the task at hand. Unlike the men they don't drink their own bathwater.

It was a good pub, a lot of us from Braybrook use to go there on thursday nights and also saturday afternoons during the summer.

Still a good pub, holding it's own in an area filled with micro breweries and speakeasies. I was there a few weeks ago.

How did a boy from Braybrook become a Deed fanatic?

Speakeasies! You are showing your age Rab.

A well known western suburbs identity has been asking me for decades how a boy from Bray brook can be both a supporter of the MFC and Liberals.

Because I can do what I want.

MFC answer Ronald Dale

DD you and I agree on a lot of things and I echo much of the sentiments above but you lost me at the Liberals comment. If Michael O'Brien want's to win the next election his media people need to stop him looking smug and smiling when DA has a challenge on his hands. As Morrison found, better to keep quiet and let the other side shoot themselves in the foot.

I won't discuss politics on this site dworship but you are probably not wrong on that call.

I only brought it up as a response to od's question regarding my support of the MFC and what someone else has been saying to me for an awful long time.

LOL. I'm not from the era of prohibition Old Dee. They're actually one of those throwbacks that have come back into vogue recently. 

I thought that  but few of a tender would know what you are talking about.

Just to keep it real: prohibition was an American thing. We never had it, so we never needed speakeasies.

What Australia had were Temperance Hotels where you could not buy an alcoholic drink, but tea and coffee instead. There were only about 15 of them in Victoria as opposed to maybe 15,000 pubs.

Glad to hear though that a few classic old pubs are thriving still without turning themselves into TABs or restaurants.

This is a game that will test our coach.

I am still not convinced that he can bring a flag home.

I thought he was outcoached in the 2nd half last week.

I hope that I am wrong and it is a case of tv watching v seeing live.

But every thing is going well and I hope it continues.

Women needed a "speakeasy".

Not allowed in front bar, required a male to buy the grog when in the lounge in the earlier years.

Restricted bar times created the need for sly grog shops in Australia, (closed after 6pm and on Sunday).

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
