Any word on Angus?

Recommended Posts

My mail is that Angus is going well. Would not have been right for a prelim, possibly not even a granny but tests have all gone well and he is definitely keen to play on. Playing lots of golf.

Good news.

He has a good five months to recover, if it takes longer so be it.

Harsh but fair. Harsh but true.  Harsh but …it’s footy so give ‘em hell.  Maynard is their face. And it’s an ugly vile loathsome one !!! 

100%  expect Pies supporters  to boo Brayshaw everytime he gets near the ball in the KB game next year.

Maynard is no more culpable of the end of Brayshaw’s career than those that caused his other concussions. This is the problem, the AFL are still behind in protecting the head of its employees. 

It's the Afl who are negligent IMHO.

It really would not surprise me. They really are a pathetic mob on the whole.

On the subject of Booing, it seems on the rise, especially when players kick at goal. I don't do it.

Why would you boo someone for no reason  trying to play their chosen sport?

It's easier for the mob to coordinate than 'Chewie on yer boot'?

I hate booing.  I never boo at the football.  I will, however, hold an exception to that rule for that dog Maynard.  Can't stand him.

You are not alone KDF, the worst part is he has a GF medal.

No wonder some people suggest that the AFL is a totally corrupt body given the lack of due process and the non recusal of the Collingwood tribunal chairman.  
Maynard playing again in 2023 after his (at very very least) careless / reckless assault on Angus makes me absolutely ill.  I have not been able to watch any final since🤮  
It makes me question whether there is any scrap of integrity at all anywhere in the AFL.

something in me changed after this as well. I was at the game and that was wellbad enough but the collingwood cheering press and tribunal afterwards added toxic salt to that . Maybe I’ve  gone off football a bit since.

Is Jeff Gleeson aligned with Collingwood? Can you please provide a link?

I haven’t posted for a long time, and mostly read for news. Particularly, trade news.
But this, I can categorically say he is. 
In my view, the fact that he heard this matter makes me as sick as the actual incident.

Thanks, what is his alignment, do you know? I think this is an important consideration.

Saw an old but good mate at the dog park who is very fair and considerate. He is mad Pies fan. Not a member. He hurried up to me. I offered my congratulations. I dont think he noticed my lack of enthusiasm but he went on how MFC must be disppointed in their season. He then said Angus should give it up. I said Maynards actions were a footy act, were they? He said anyone going through the air cant change the outcome. We are both of a certain age and I replied that you dont have to come down like Abdullah the butcher with the butchers chop! 

I said "George you were the very model of Justice on top of the Supreme Court. As a judge, I cant believe youve put on the blindfold". He said, underneath Im just a defence barrister.

They are not called 'The Filth' for nothing. Stuff 'em full of their staple diet - deep fried dim sims - if you'd ever seen them eat, there ain't no time for breathing and thus, no capacity to 'boo' our Gus.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
