I got them at $5! And I thought THAT was good. 

I think I misread the 'To Win' column.  I realise now that is to win the Premiership not to win today...

Clearly I know nothing about betting!!  But it should have been intuitively obvious.

Hope you lose your bet!!

Your poor old Uncle Bitter is  taking a well earned break from Manorial responsibilities and enjoying a balmy 28 degrees in downtown Bangkok.

However, I shall be watching the mighty Dees thrash the Crows this afternoon.

No ruck?  No worries! Our mids will create plenty of opportunities and ,if our defence is as miserly as last game, the Crows will be lucky to get 50 points. I'm tipping May to play a cracker. I'm very confident.

I am meeting that Demonland luminary ( and Bangkok tour guide) SWYL at a sports Bar of his recommendation to enjoy the game. SWYL assures me that the establishment has a very welcoming atmosphere and is located in the Toorak of Bangkok. Nana , I believe, is the name of the suburb.

Yes i have assured Uncle that if the game becomes a dour struggle or “it doesn’t go our way” that alternative entertainment is readily available only a few steps away from the nominated Bar

Ive lived in Bangkok for many years. Nana(plaza) is a grimey concrete rabbit warren laced with gogo bars and beer bars off Sukhumvit rd soi 4.

Toorak- it is definitely not..LOL.

Advice...if you go to Nana ,Soi Cowboy or Pattaya be careful what you wish for. Not much good comes out of the Land of Smiles.

You obviously went into the wrong clubs (easy to do) deebunked. It’s all Class at Plaza de Nana. 
 

(Spanky’s is by far the best, just quietly of course)

The locals call it Mouskuriland I believe Uncle, and apparently also after dark the Red Lights flash in unison.

Look for the redhead in the cheer squad!

Yep, hard to miss. Front row today. Probs on flogger duty but Ima try to snaffle the Giant Fritta head to wave like a maniac. Might have to wrestle Pauline for it. Spoiler: she wins. He is her son, after all. 
And Speaking of the Fritsch fam, a few of them are joining the banner crew out in the middle today for Fritta’s 100th. 😃

They’re raring to go…

Yes can recommend the 'fresh air' and exercise  at the nearby Queen Sirikit Park. You can hire bicycles and do the circuit.

Crows haven’t beaten anyone since round 6

*not counting the bottom 2

should be an easy win. Clarry and Jack will shark the taps from O’Brien. Lose the hit outs, win the clearances 👍🏻

If we assume the above, we both look foolish,

Go hard or go home,  black runs only

Hypothetical

You're in hospital likely to be discharged today after spending the day in ED yesterday with a cardiac 'issue'.

Assuming discharge goes ahead, would you:

- watch the Dees game live on the TV

- only watch after knowing the result?

Your heart beats true Ken, you should be fine.

Get well soon and enjoy the game

Losing this match last year, should ensure that the Demons are up and about.

A win would put us two games and 20% above fifth with only 7 games to go!

Go Demons!

MFCSS is running riot. I am very wary of the crows over there. Lets hope that May stops Walker from producing his walking stick.

Having not watched any crows games, does anyone have an informed take on their 3 outs? Outside running players? Will they lose a bit of run? 

Hammil average defender. No big loss

McHenry small fwd decent player

McAdam medium fwd decent/good player

And if it does go our way the post match entertainment is only a few steps away too 😉

We also beat them by about 40pts late last year (although was a bit of an arm wrestle early) with Fritts bagging 7 (3 in the last 2 minutes if I remember correctly). Let's hope for a repeat of that one today.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
