  1. "At the end of the day some you win some you don't but I'm glad that I'm here in the premiership window oh we'll all smile if we bring the cup home ...with A. Cerra A Cerra A Cerra." (Apologies, Justice Crew).
  2. Got my bro, sister and families in Perth they will mop up on my 4 x membership. I also have grand final access ticket so will probably have to raffle that to pay for my next year's membership.
  3. No that was a short segment, now all over YouTube but I had definitely not seen it until the 1980s. The full replay apparently does not exist.
  4. I know in '64 we beat them at Kardinia Park after beating them pre-season in Hawaii and San Francisco!
  5. We got a TV with a massive aerial in 1963. On GF day the TV was on channel 2 which provided regular racing and football updates on a rolling paper telex device. Melbourne v Coll scores kept appearing beside Caulfield race 7 etc when finally Collingwood's 'winning' goal appeared, only to be trumped with 'final scores' showing Melbourne as winners. We went overseas for a year and the next game (now on my portable radio) was round one 1966. It was match of the day but Melbourne was now an inept team that could barely get the ball into the forward line whilst StKilda were rampant. Many years later I walked into a video store in Swan St Richmond where you could purchase 'name a game' videos. I asked the guy at the counter if I could look at the '64 footage and saw for the first time the TV footage of Crompton's goal. I was spellbound with Crompton's fist-pumping and Tony Charlton's commentary that MFC would be 'the talk of all Melbourne tonight". Apparently the full '64 TV footage was wilfully destroyed.
  6. This is the modern-day version of swap cards. Trade out our soul and buy in Cristiano Ronaldo.
  7. 1. Catch a blue train from Springvale station to Richmond. 2. Buy a tin of koolmints and eat them all in one go. Look for the donut van and buy six hot jam don't. 3. Read the Footy Record all the way back to Springvale 4. Buy 20 cents chips one piece of flake and a can of RC cola. 5. Play pinball at Rocky's with Ray. 6. Get up early Sunday for a copy of The Sunday Observer. 7. Watch highlights of the game on WOS.
  8. They weren't exactly chasing up Daisy Pearce for her views either (ch 7). It was all mansplaining by the boys.
  9. What happens in the Grand Final, stays in the grand final. That's what MFC have got to be prepared for. Not capitulate like we did in 2000. Another poster correctly pointed out that the Greene nudge is exactly what pub bullies do to instigate one-sided brawls.
  10. If Greene gets off it will be with a twenty million dollar AFL Biro.
  11. Apparently he will be right for commentary on w/e. Got some facial burns.
  12. North supporters would be browned off if that happened.
  13. Completely suckered the Geelong backs into thinking he was taking a shot:
  14. Footscray v Port Adelaide, the other-other white meat.
  15. Or even "toppermost of the poppermost" (The Beatles) would suffice.
  16. His story is essential reading for Dee fans.
  17. How many players has that player concussed etc for no consequences.
  18. Gawny and Brayshaw getting ahead of themselves on their podcast.
  19. Tread lightly the mighty Dees also have our share of misery.
  20. I went to that game. WCE totally outsmarted us by continuously kicking across the ground 'to the fatside', always unmarked players. We couldn't lay our hands on the ball.
