I vaguely remember that Dean at some time in the last decade or so did admit to staging.   

In the multiverse, TV footage of the incident was accepted and RDB got off. But we lost by a point after Doug Wade blatantly dug his knee into Bernie Massey's back and converted after the siren. In the following year Melbourne inexplicably slumped  because RDB couldn't get over being beaten by Norm Smith in the club's mid-season darts tournament.

There’s already many people here for Ron’s memorial. A lot of North and Carlton supporters but the overwhelming majority are Dees. The mood outside is very sombre. It’s sure to be a very moving service. ❤️💙

I don’t know about that particular GF but ours in 2021 was sit wherever you want. 🤭

Jokes, OD. 💖


The RDB memorial is first in, best dressed, so to speak. No allocation of seat numbers. General admission, so best to get there early. 

In and seated WCW. Hmm showing how poorly my fingers work on a phone's tiny keyboard.

WHY???! Why him?

I just did the same thing.

This is the guy that refused to wear a handed out St Kilda scarf for Shane Warne's day service. Not expecting much more than regulation speaking circuit stuff.

Walked into a deli near home where they were showing the memorial service on a tv only to see Eddie McGuire's massive boofhead filling the screen. That sanctimonious git shouldn't have been anywhere near our hallowed ground today let alone be the MC.

Serendipitously watching post breakfast from afar. Had me totally engrossed, some excellent speeches, anecdotes and memories covering Ron’s life and footy career.
 

Highlights Lou Richard’s joke about God aspiring to be RDB on the footy field. The interaction between Ted Whitten and Ron in Adelaide during an interstate footy carnival. “Who is Mr Football?” and Ron’s son Ron Barassi lll ‘s  eulogy to his father.

Tony Jones referred to the expected maximum temperature in Melbourne today at 31 degrees. Channel 9 timed out unfortunately as Mike Brady commenced playing. When l became aware of the darkness outside and the first rains of the wet season.

Veni Vedi Vici

Vale Ronald Dale Barassi.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
