  1. 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.

    I'd say Hibbo is out, don't mess with achillies.

    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."

  3. 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

    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.

    Why paid against Cunnington just now, but tackle on LJ moments earlier, not. Umpires jyst making it up as they go.

    B. Grundy d L. Jackson 79-50

    ROUND 1 FANTASY LADDER 

    B GRUNDY 1-0

    L JACKSON 0-1

    I'm not vindictive and immature enough to post this in here every week - that would be irritating for all involved. I will do it in my head every week over on my fantasy page however.  :laugh:

    Apropos of nothing, if that was the 60s it would be Barry Grundy v Larry Jackson. But who gives a Barry Grundy? Collingwood.

    Not too sure.

    I'm no lawyer but I would think the 'injured' has to 1) show cause and effect between the events and the injury, 2) there was negligence on the part of the accused and 3) that the injury caused or will cause quantifiable losses.  There may be other criteria that come into play...

    Not sure what the level of proof is for those three things (and any other criteria) but I would think it has to be reasonably substantial.

    Should be an interesting test case.

    Could be a bit of Volenti non fit injuria...

    Well from someone who does listen to him; he backed us to win all the way through 2021 when other were waiting for us to ‘Melbourne’ or completely ‘Melbourne up the place’ or simply just ‘Melbourne at the wrong time.’

    He’s fine.

    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.

    I do like the unfolding deliberate development, apparently, of the midfield/forward 'waxing'(*) between Kozzy and Trac, as a logical up-shift in the team's flexibility and unpredictability and particularly for the increased engagement and centralising of Kozzy in the team and with his brother teammates.

     

    (* For you younger folk, that means a turn-for-turn sharing, not a bonding visit to a salon...)

    I well remember 'waxing' in kick to kick at primary school.

    I hope this isn't the proverbial Moz, but for the past two weeks I open DL with dread - then again, that's the kind of fella I am, I must be Polish or something -  hoping that it ain't gonna produce catastrophic news about accidents on the Training Track.

    Thus far, with the usual shall we say minor mishaps, our boat is afloat. 

    In the meantime, I also note that the injury/operation - dictation dictation dictation, three sausages went to the station - tally at Geelong follows a similar path to our post Premiership season. Without wishing the NOT Wells on someone, long may it continue. With their perpetual Home Draw advantage, they are not Cats at all, simply spoiled poodles.

    In the good old days many teams had horrific home ground advantages ie Windy Hill, Victoria Park,  Moorabbin, even Lake Oval l remember had feral home ground supporters.

    We could have a Van and a Laurie arrive at the same time.

    For all your logistical needs, contact the Melbourne Football Club.

    On a serious note, VDR is reminding me v much of Greg Parke (no puns pls) with his high grabs and gait. Really looking forward to see him improve our forward line.
