What I want to know, is why Goody always wears visors, surely a cap is the more SunSmart option for a man with a shaved head.

Asking the important questions as we cap the year off.

I don’t know why Goody wears the visor, but I bought one earlier this year and what I wanna know is why did it cost $40?! It’s effectively half a cap, shouldn’t it be half the price, or at least, cheaper?

But wait, there’s more! I once slept with *10 DA members at the same time. Throw in a Board member for good measure, and what a night! Did you suspect that????

 

*it was Sleep at the ‘G so technically I slept with 800 people at the same time. 😅

And here's me thinking I was your only one @WalkingCivilWar. #Heartbroken Xmas

When it was at Maroochydore was it at the Maroochydore multi sports complex ?

I played there in a Masters carnival in October it’s a great facility with six or so ovals with a carpet like surface

Its humid but so is Brisbane Alice and Darwin and there is warm water surf and golf for recreation 

no offense to Lorne but I know where I’d be going!

 

Yeah, Apollo Bay runs rings around Bloody overrated Lorne!

Mmmmm…lorne 😋

The Lorne sausage, also known as square sausageor slice, is a traditional Scottish food item made from minced meat, rusk and spices.[1] Although termed a sausage, no casing is used to hold the meat in shape, hence it is usually served as square slices from a formed block. It is a common component of the traditional Scottish breakfast.

And is MAGNIFICENT! Robs English butchery in Dandenong I can mightily recommend for this and all meats English, Scottish, and Eire🤪

Yours truly was invited for a training camp for the Dees U19s at Lorne in the Summer of 90/91. I was just 18.

I stupidly chose to get hammered with my friends instead.In Lorne.

I was fit enough but I just never thought I was skilled enough to make it.

I had played against Hopgood and Lovell and Stuart Maxfield that year and went OK.

Their footskills were miles ahead.

I was probably fitter than all of them.

But I chose to party.

Silly Biffen.

I don't eat much meat it has to be said PF but a slice or two of square sausage occasionally with a bit of HP sauce is lovely. There's also a wee butcher in Sunbury that does shell pies and haggis as does David Jones in the city. Go easy though if you're planning on being around for our next flag as you can feel your arteries furring up as you eat the stuff.

Hope he does go from Saiyan to a super Saiyan powers this year. Watched the whole Z series with my son back in the day. Weird but interesting show with its emphasis on food and underwear names. Go blonde Kossie!

Gee I love how this club bends over backwards for its supporters! I mean did the Club advertise this move, did I miss the email? I have a family holiday house at Anglesea, if I knew I could have organised to drop in for a look. Oh but I guess the nature of the ground at Lorne means that they can’t lock out fans, so best to not tell anyone.

Yes Dino it was at the Maroochydore sports complex. 

Wish they still came up here as it was good to go and watch them  but as usual things change.

Interesting comment …I certainly knew as did friends who live in Lorne and went along. Can’t quite remember where I read/heard it but was on a social media format. Maybe on the Members forum where all the “heirarchy “ spoke ?

Lorne seems an odd place to choose for a camp. Crappy oval apart from the view, variable windy weather, cold water. Sport facilities zero. Plenty of good bushwalking perhaps and hill runs. Maybe the team is bonding over nice meals at some of the new restaurants, although the pizzas on Erskine River are good. 
Are they saving dosh for the legal costs and future settlements coming from the various actions from disgruntled executives and board members ? 
I don’t know but the PR is not looking good despite all the talk about culture and professionalism. The footy can’t come soon enough!

They’re only there for two nights. Don’t think it’s supposed to be a gruelling off season camp more of a shake up and get out of Melbourne for a couple days. Pies went there last December and ended up having a pretty good year. Now they’re having their ‘camp’ in Morwell

I can picture a Biffen party: Pymms and cucumber sandwiches. OH, then a glass of Pinot. Swank!

Was that a work of fiction about flatulence?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
