  1. I have definitely heard and/or read the same thing (and not here!).
  2. I haven’t argued he should return to the middle, but his pressure last year was absolutely fantastic
  3. Brayshaw’s lack of defensive pressure was previously an issue, but to bring it up after 2021 is just laughable!
  4. Got flights from Uluru to Melbourne for $90 a head, going down next week. Its possible, but not easy, be flexible with your dates, fly into Uluru about a week before game, do a 4 day safari tour taking in Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings canyon and the West Macs (about $1000 for the tour) arrive in Alice for game… Hotels last year were ridiculous because many were shut down and the Mercure (and others at times) taken for Covid isolations, similarly at Uluru, the lost most staff due to Covid shutdown and have still not got enough staff to open all the hotels at Yulara. hopefully next year that will no longer be an issue. The best event I saw here was about 5 years ago, we were playing Port, they bought up heaps of old players ;B Pickett one) and ran an awesome one day clinic for kids from the communities, miles better than anything I have seen from any other club
  5. Thrilled with this, loved his dad, was livid when he was forced out the door, he deserved better
  6. Was it Mad as Hell that was pushing this, regardless only potential pick I have read about thanks to phantom draft, credit to them
  7. Has been one of my most loved players for a while. thanks for everything Nev.
  8. I remember that well and I am absolutely certain he meant to say Bulldogs, but as he does most games, said the wrong team. Have seen the quarter many times and I have no doubt he meant to say Dogs
  9. Kid needs to keep developing, could get second year blues. Let’s not expect too much and jump on him next year if his development slows, as long term, he will be valuable
  10. And from Alice it should visit the green grass at Santa Teresa, Ltyentye Apurte would love it
  11. Tv shows a bunch of people in blonde wigs, sitting there in stunned silence, all dead quiet BT- “the Bailey Smith cheer squad sitting talking amongst themselves “ The [censored] just makes it up
  12. Apparently the club were very bullish (is that a word) on him preseason, was looking great, the good work was undone by injury, hope he explodes next year and we have fierce competition for spots. Love that he has backed himself and re-signed with us
  13. Alice Springs is our second home, hope to see it here
  14. Bit of a different scenario, there was a murder in Liams community, he felt guilty as he wasn’t there and Yuendumu itself descended into not much better than a war zone. Slightly off topic, locals at Yuendumu think Liam’s 16yo son has inherited his dad’s football ability
  15. I am another who thinks the old traditional GF replay to kick start the season, sick of waiting for first game of year just to have to sit through another Carlton [censored] show
  16. During the GF he was taken in a solid tackle, got free and dished off the handball, shortly after he crunched Treloar in a tackle, forcing a ball up. Ruckman don’t do things Dogga does!
  17. Wish this forum would just ignore this irrelevant [censored]
  18. Love this, especially the end with Steven, he is a genuinely good bloke who means what he says
  19. The fact Sam has been on the phone trying to get rid of players is staggering, how can he expect loyalty after that!?
  20. Incredible development…. something that was lacking for so many years at our club
  21. It’s where my user name comes from, the “Dermott Brereton riot squad “ threatened to kick the [censored] out of me at Waverley, I invited them to try, they didn’t 😂
  22. A Geelong supporter once told me Melbourne was her second favourite team until she sat behind me. I don’t care for people’s sympathy, I don’t care for hyper aggressive tossers, but I want passionate fans, fams who have earns the right to enjoy being on top and if others don’t like it, we’ll they can get stuffed
  23. Tell me you don’t want to rub the Hawthorn supporters noses in the dirt…. I know I do😂
  24. Don’t tone it down, stay the same, just be condescending to the sods that have done it to us for 50+ years. I am already eyeing the filths record of four on the trot 😂
