  1. Just filling in time here watching a whole lot of Victorians running round in Canberra

      1. There are some grounds for calling last night's south The Checker-Yze Cup, on account of the way Richmond were able to shut us down for half the game. Yze went from Melbourne to Richmond, Frank went from Richmond to Melbourne.

    2. Checker-Hughes was that smoker sitting next to Our Norm when the '64 siren went. So much for Barassi's excuse that he was worried about Smith looking over his shoulder If Barassi had stayed in red and blue colours. If it was good enough for Checker to blow smoke in Norm's face what was Ron's problem having his old mentor fiddling around with the whiteboard?

    Afl announce a 70mill train base for the TAS team! 
     

    Makes the blood boil how our club gets treated 

    Imagine a Tassie v Gold Coast grand final at Gosch's Paddock. Parking would be bedlam.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I worry i don't talk enough, so throw in lots of umms to get my word count up.

    For the same reason i often repeat words, like brilliant, curious and incredible. 

    A heads up. If I'm honest I'm unlikely to fix my speech patterns or affectations by next week. In fact I'm unlikely to fix them full stop. 

    By the by, in the spirit of mutual constructive criticism, you don’t capitalise the word um. 

    And, for future reference, binman is not capitalised either. 

    Cheers

    And a big thanks Binman for putting out the rubbish.

    Contributing to a podcast isn’t public speaking. I like the conversational and relaxed style of the Demonland podcast.

    Ummmm, yeah, naaaah.

  5. I liked Essendon when they had their breakthrough flags in 1984/5 but must say have disliked them since their sniping tactics in the 1990 and especially 2000 grand finals. I still don't like them for this reason, plus the later d**g/p******s  scandal, but must say the whole thing feels tragic now, esp. for many of their supporters. Don't forget the Dees spent generations in this wilderness, and it ain't pretty. They are my feelings after reading through some of these Bomber blitz comments.

    There was no malice from Chol in either of them. The May one happened right in front of me and i watched the Geelong game.

    May was flying back courageously at an angle at a furious pace.

    Happened in an actual footballing act not like that [censored] from Collingwood

    Whether malice was used is immaterial,  he nearly took out JVR'S brain in a ruck contest. At least the umpire saw that.

  7. I was a bit concerned about Chol's knee after it got smashed by May's ribcage and Van Rooyen's head in the same game. Have seen no media or AGL  reports as to whether he has pulled up ok.

    Crows for me. 

    “Kick A Vic”

    Never forget. 

    Eagles supporters are a very close second. Can’t stand watching games over at The Boo Factory (unless of course it’s a Grand Final with no Eagles present). 

    The very strong South Australian comp was decimated by the inception of the AFL, l am happy to see their teams do well.

    Petty in for Brown for mine: time to settle our best forward line in, and while Ben was decent he was playing on a flanker. I think JVR+Petty is our best tall forward setup this season

    BBB straightened us up = he doesn't go out.

    Lever's disposal has never been one of his strengths. Kicks the ball in a rainbow trajectory

    I'm surprised we don't have a player running by for the handball.

    What about spotting up Big Maxie v Geelong a couple of years ago. Possibly won us the premiership with that kick.

    Max or JV should go to the central umpire before the first bounce and (very politely) say we're going to count how many times Max get's bumped unnecessarily off the ball and give you the running score at the end of every quarter 

    Players are routinely niggled, retarded and interfered before and after they go for the ball.  The game has become anarchic, which is either exciting or a turn-off depending on your point of view.  The AFL could do worse in these circumstances than bring back Tom Wills' original laws of the game.
