Heard Roamin Brian picked a Dees team...



Recommended Posts

...which is very timely, as there is yet another break in MFC's pretty successful 'On-And-On-It-Goes Year', which I take @Demonstone's lead in filling with a Demonstone-patented conundrum.

I'm surprised how many years Brian had to go back to fill the 23. Here it is:

B:        S. SMITH               A. TOMLINSON               T. RIVERS

HB:     D. TERLICH               J. RIVERS                 O. MCDONALD

C:        C. ELLIS                     C. OLIVER                A. MCDONALD

HF:      B. MCLEAN               T. SMITH                       B. VINCE 

F:         M. COLLINS          T. MCDONALD                 C. SYLVIA

R:        T.SIMMONDS         C. PETRACCA                  J. VINEY

IC:       M. CLISBY, M. COLLINS, N. SMITH, L.WILLIAMS

MS:     T. DAVIS

The common theme? PMs only, please

Firstly, special prize to @darkhorse72 for picking up the (I would like to say deliberate but can't) error. J. MCDONALD should have got that forward pocket.

Secondly, Brian trawled the years working back from the present day, so the N. SMITH is 4-gamer Nick, @Jumping Jack Clennett. But for the years criterion, the Red Fox could have made the team (and would definitely have replaced T. SMITH at CHF on merit if so! And @spirit of norm smith, you would have been pleased?)

Finally (though I hope not!) PM-ers @daisycutter and @Rob Mac...... have had a go (good on you, folks, and thanks!) but unsuccessfully.

Anyway, the number of you interested (intrigued? frustrated? maddened?) is encouraging. Keep at it!

One 'hint' I must give you all, having just realised it, is there is a coincidence between one player's qualification for Brian's team and the grand final he played in!

@Lucifers Hero, claiming it to be a 'one in 10 million guess that it is right' IS right! I'm inclined to think you're a bit better than 'guess', Luci, or at least at significantly better odds! So, very well done, and - allow me this cross-cultural appropriation - the Triple Laurel Wreath is on its way to you.

Now, who will claim the Double and Single?

Thank you but I'm in shock!!

My 'guess' seemed so obscure I thought twice about sending it to avoid embarrassing myself, even in private!

Yes, I encourage all to submit what may appear to be 'obscure guesses' because they may just be right.  And not so obscure once it is confirmed.

Hey 'Tim', is it time to give a 'cryptic' clue?😉

Thanks for saving me the embarrassment of a self bump, 'Luci' 😁

I'll see if Saturday night imbibing releases anyone from their inhibitions and, if not, unleash in the morning!

YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT ABOUT @spirit of norm smith'S POST. I'LL HOLD THE SINGLE LAUREL WREATH FOR HIM FOR XX HOURS TO ALLOW HIM TIME TO PM ME WITH FURTHER 'EVIDENCE', TO 'CONVINCE' ME.

IVE ALSO JUST NOTICED, BY THE WAY, LUCI, YOUR QUALIFICATION FOR A BRIAN TEAM. IT'D BE AN AFLW TEAM, THEN, AND LILY MITHEN WOULD JUST HAVE TO BE CAPTAIN, BUT YOU COULD BE VICE!

IT SHOULD HAVE PAID ALREADY, MY SALTING OF CLUES THROUGH THE THREAD, PARTICULARLY THE ONE AT THE VERY START. IT SEEMS TO HAVE FALLEN ON DEAF EARS (NOT AS MANY CRYPTIC CROSSWORDERS ON HERE AS I THOUGHT, THEN...)

IVE MENTIONED HIM BEFORE, BUT i SHOULD HAVE GIVEN CREDIT TO THE YEAR ONE PLAYER IN PARTICULAR PUT IN. A TRUE MILLENIAL.

(APOLOGIES FOR THE CAPS. MIGHT HAVE TO FIX THAT...)

For sure, LILy would be Captain of his Roamin AFLW team.  I'LL settle for VIce!

I know of at least two CC (Cryptic Crossword) fans on DL  @Demonstone@WalkingCivilWarwho might like to find the code🙃

I'm sure there are others!

PM sent.  It's taken me a number of tries to figure it out and, if my reasoning doesn't add up, I'll be LIVID.

Per your PM, Mr Stone, you are correct, and the Double Laurel is yours to wear proudly.

As you pipped @Mazer Rackham by a couple of hours, the Single Laurel is yours, Mazer. And, yes, the McDonalds all qualify for their 'Mc' but not the 'D'; hence the need for CAPS in the original team, and my subsequent post was a roundabout hint in this regard.

(As @spirit of norm smith failed to respond in the allotted XX hours, his prize drops to being dropped from the gameday Colosseum team. So he gets to fight another day!)

And thank you both for your better-late-than-never involvement. I would have been very disappointed had either of you not been in the MIX.

I can think of 500 reasons why the 'D' would indeed qualify.

Could somebody explain @Nascent's Stanley Bruce reference for dummies like me who still can't grasp the connection?

'PMs only'?!

😄 D does 'fit' but doesn't qualify: the link was correct numerals of 2 or more letters. MC (1100) is correct but MCD ain't.

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro
