  1. We all should respect a guy who has been so generous to the club we love for so long. He really deserves more than a building at Casey named after his family .
  2. I hate being so wrong and absolutely ignorant. Sorry.
  3. I’m hungry for any news about the MFC, but now I never go to the club official website, since there’s never anything interesting or up to date on it.
  4. Stan wasn’t the bravest player to pull on a Dees jumper.
  5. Bloody Hammers robbed again! Dubious penalty to Sheffield in the 103rd minute!! Latest goal in EPL history! ( to make it a draw....seconds later, similar incident at the other end....no penalty. Moyes not amused! Hammers remind me of the Demons so much.
  6. Hammers remarkably inconsistent. 0-5 v. Fulham, then beat Wolves 3-0 last night! (with a Euro win in between) Liverpool next....easy!
  7. The media pander to Collingwood fans in order to maximise ratings and readership. If May had done exactly the same to De Goey, he would have been heavily criticised, with pressure on the tribunal to give him 6 weeks.
  8. Ted gave Darren Millane a decent head-knock.
  9. I’m worried about us chasing. Wicket taking spin. Maharaj and Shamsi are pretty good.
  10. I just googled R E ("Tip") Foster. That 287 in 1903 was his first test! It was the highest Test score till 1930 (when Sandham, then the Don, scored triples.) 287 remained the highest score on the SCG till Michael Clarke's triple century. Foster captained England in cricket and soccer. I wonder if his nickname, "Tip" came because of his profession......he was a stockbroker. He died aged 36 of diabetes.
  11. It's an interesting dilemma for its management. I presume Ratings are important, but the reason the station is so hard to listen to is all the advertising. I don't count them, but sometimes I think there must be about ten ads between discussion segments. Obviously their revenue must depend largely on advertising,but they just couldn't have more than they do now. If the ratings are low, they can' t charge the advertisers more than they do now. I occasionally ask a friend "did you hear that interview on SEN". Invariably, they"ll reply...I just can't listen to that station because of all the ads!"
  12. 5 quarters since a goal. I’m at Ikon. It’s no fun here.
  13. Hodgey! No more centuries after his double v. S Africa
  14. Interesting that Maxi and Deano both made 201, and both were out on their feet during their innings in stifling conditions. I recorded it from 7/91 and went to bed, disgusted. I watched it in the morning not knowing the result. Very exciting, but I expected Maxwell to go out next ball the whole innings, since he was playing such risky shots. The end came so amazingly quickly!
  15. Apparently Brendan McCartney thought he was a potential AA defender. I always thought he was under-rated by most Dee supporters. Tall defenders are often the "whipping boy." Remember Alistair Nicholson?....he had a lot of detractors. The classic was Kevin Walsh at Essendon. Their supporters game him real grief. It was surprising that Omac was the best golfer in the club. The guy had unrecognised hand-eye co-ordination, that's for sure.
  16. I wonder if Mark Neeld consulted “Coach Nick”.
  17. What I find hard to digest is that that violent miscreant actually won them the premiership. If he hadn’t pole-axed Gus, we probably would have won the flag. A bit like ‘58….violence wins. I hope their chooks turn into emus and kick their dunny doors down.
  18. I mentioned this in another thread, but it's more relevant in this one. In round 18, 2018 , we were leading Geelong at Geelong by less than a goal with about a minute remaining. The ball was in our forward pocket, and Max Gawn sustained a tiny split on the lip from (another, unpenalised), headhigh tackle. I don't know if a Geelong player dobbed him in , or one of the umps noticed that there was a tiny blood speck on his lip. He was ordered off the ground. Tom McDonald ran up from the backline to compete in the ruck. Geelong won a clearance, and the ball went to Touhy in our undermanned backline,35m from goal when the siren went. He goaled, we lost, and at the end of the season we missed the top 4 by one game. I think it was that game where Dangerfield cheated early on by quietly telling the ump he'd be rucking in their forward pocket, so our guys didn't hear it. They tried to block him, he got the free, and the goal, then winked smugly at Hawkins. The moral?......don't be a good sport to Geelong, Clarrie! (or Collingwood, for god's sake)
  19. I don't like his haircut, either. Perhaps Moore does it for him?
  20. I agree with recent posters.It is a nauseating article in the HeraldSun today.
  21. Let's hope we can sing the above on Sat. night. But I like.... "Oh, the premiership's a pipedream, for poor old Collingwood!"
