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.

Had a dream last night where Fritta was announced as the Coleman medalist. If that’s the case, then today is likely to be the first of some big bags of goals for him over the remaining games.

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

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.

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air.

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
