  1. Michael Byrne. Was a v good player but didn't get his chances. Went on to play in Hawthorn premiership team. https://websites.mygameday.app/club_info.cgi?client=0-1047-26743-0-0&sID=70364&&news_task=DETAIL&articleID=6231825
  2. I'm nominating Diamond Jim for half-back flank. I thought he played well in that position. On a serious note, Alan Johnson and Todd Viney should definitely be there.
  3. He's not the Kysaiah, he's just a naughty boy. No, that doesn't make sense.
  4. I am definitely old school but l dob't know why the AFL plays speculator on players criss-crossing clubs.
  5. I just wish we'd give the TS thing a little rest. Barass himself set out the template by exiting the back door in December 1964 with a premiership and best and fairest medal in his pocket. I think he played in 6 premierships and captained two. Followed the money when our playing list started to deplete. He didn't have a job for life/super benefits etc that many people have. He was idolised in the red and blue, then just vanished.
  6. Is that Achilles Jones from Manangatang, per chance? For those wishing to stroll down memory lane: "Achilles Jones is discovered on his lonely farm near Manangatang kicking wheatbags around, as it saves him dragging them. The talent scout of the Galahs, a struggling AFL football team, plucks him from obscurity and soon he is kicking footballs and rocketing the team to victory in the Grand Final."
  7. Thanks for great podcast. When Gawny comes back how will things be different now that Grundy is showing his wares? And can Gawny and Van Rooyen interchange in the spearhead possy (when Gawny not rucking) to free up JVR for a bit of a gallop? Yours Faithfully Bush Demon.
  8. Carlton, Richmond and Essendon lost. Somw people are never happy.
  9. This is what I'm talking about! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpYCGws5V6E Hope Sunday is reminiscent of the legendary Greg Parke's first game.
  10. All the commentators in their coats and club ties are free to drink martinis while Stephen May drives. I didn't do it he says then he goes online. That's too many demerits for this dee boy to hide." (Apologies Bob Dylan).
  11. In the short term, Max. In the long term, Maximilian. Sorry if this comment makes no sense.
  12. Why paid against Cunnington just now, but tackle on LJ moments earlier, not. Umpires jyst making it up as they go.
  13. Should be a sin bin for umpires... all the random/vibe calls ie Freo's Hughes right into no 30 (north's) back in front of goal.. an appaling spoil, no free to north. 1st quarter Freo get a red hot holding the ball gift goal, north guy barely had a chance to dispose. It is a lottery, should be integrated into sportsbet.
  14. I can just imagine James Brayshaw, "Bang, bang, bang". PS Apologies in advance for the bad taste....
  15. TEAMS: Top Dogs out, big names back for Dees-Lions - https://www.afl.com.au/news/887055 Feel free to re-badge!
  16. Apropos of nothing, if that was the 60s it would be Barry Grundy v Larry Jackson. But who gives a Barry Grundy? Collingwood.
  17. Good. 1. Aussie rules infiltrating rugby states. 2. Essendon doing time for their many sins. 3. Whipping it good in '21. Bad. 1. Colonial stadium. 2. Calling Aussie rules 'AFL'. 3. Teams 'VERSING' each-other. A fourth one: The AFL sc*****g-over S.A and W.A native competitions.
  18. Could be a bit of Volenti non fit injuria...
  19. Don't go for a beer during game. You are just gifting the opposition a goal.
  20. I'm just doing some forward-planning here. I want to know whether JVR should be getting into the 22 early rather than later (so Lukey Jackson doesn't get into his ear at next Freo clash?).
  21. He may have once had an anti-Melbourne vibe but was very respectful of his old club when we brought home the vegan bacon in 2021.
  22. I well remember 'waxing' in kick to kick at primary school.
  23. Points of order. He wasn't THAT amazing in the GF. And 'He was everywhere' may simply mean he was tried in lots of positions, so need to panic yet. On a brighter note, Freo lost.
