Redleg (4/10)



  1. Sorry to disagree. I took one look at him in his in his first game warm up at the MCG and was shocked with our choice.. Had nothing going for him as a very early draft pick.
  2. My brother played against him in a reserves game, I think Parke was at the Bulldogs. My bro was a 18 year old who hadnt played a game. Parke shook his hand at the bounce and wished him good luck. He knew my brothers name and called him by his first name. Full on professional and good human. Bro said he ran all day. A sensational player in the shadow of the great Royce Hart. We all tried to take Greg Parke marks at school.
  3. Many years ago someone I knew was close to then Pies President, Ranald McDonald. He told my friend that the new Captain mark Williams from SA was a stand out on the track and for his leadership, way ahead of popular star Vic Collingwood players. He was and is a big hearted guy. So a big big thanks to your role in doing what no other Dees team could achieve in over half a century.
  4. Smith a one way runner. Sprints forward, jogs back.
  5. Bulldogs gambled playing just on the edge and it paid off. throws for handballs, going to ground in tackles, push here and there. experience showing.
  6. Listened on radio then took my seven year old self across to the park with a bloated old footy, perfect for dropkicks, a la Tassie Johnson. It has been a long ride, we have never been dominant since. On reflection I think the sixty four team may have been old and tired. So it was more than just Norm Smith and Barassi going. The club needed renewal. Anyway, that is all history. My highlights of 57 years were the final training session at the Junction Oval before 87 and the Melbourne crowds ovation a few days later as we ran a lap before the game.
  7. Will stand corrected on block/size but pull down weatherboards in Yawla St are priced between 1.4 to 1.8 million. I am ambivelant about the sale until I hear where we invest the money.
  8. New owner got a bargain. At 2 million a block for minimum, 3/4 acre blocks of land. I walked the Bentleigh Club a few days ago. Completely run down on the outside as well as second rate inside. It had potential to make a lot more revenue than it ever did. I am against pokies but less so in affluent bayside where the punters were mostly locals with a few bob to spare. Is it a good sale. Yes/No. I think it depends on how we spend and invest the proceeds.
  9. Want me to start going through your old posts. We were no chance in 88 or 2000. stand by it Tassie deal will be a winner for whoever takes it. Why are you dragging this up now?.
  10. Mutual move on moment. Thanks Jake, you added some spark in the dark times, see ya.
