  1. Anyone on here crossed th Gibb River Road? I watched the Prelim on a satellite TV at Manning Gorge. The following morning this was on a sign outside the Mt Barnett Roadhouse. ( For those that don't know -This is just about as far as you can get in Australia from the MCG!!) Had our fist post Gibb week doing horizontal falls, derby cape Leveque and now in cable beach/Broome for some serious R&R while waiting to fly down to Perth for the GF
  2. Have you already called in sick for the next 2 weeks Jaded.... next week for the panic attacks and emergency department visits for the heart attacks The following week for the party at home (or the major depression episode obviously dependent on results)
  3. As the home team. We should be in traditional jumpers and blue shorts. Dogs as the away team should be in white shorts with their away (white strip) will be bloody annoyed if it's not that way - we have earned the right as minor premier and straight through
  4. Have a beer or 3. Fly down to Perth from Broome at lunchtime. Have a [censored] tonne more beer. Go to game. Celebrate. get drunk premiership tattoo in dodgy tatt joint!!!
  5. Section 149 row 8 right next to one the 4 players races... hope like hell it's ours
  6. Just thinking out loud here... Would love to see Max go forward to square at the first bounce and let Jacko start in the ruck. Just to seriously [censored] with their collective heads. The would be some serious panic and a reshuffle to create some good chaos footy at the start
  7. The stars are definitely aligning for me. Currently in Kununurra- will be crossing the Gibb River Road over the next 2 weeks. The Friday night prelim has aligned with a station stay where I will be able to watch. The week off means I will be in Broome the week before the GF. Easy flight down from there - just need to source tickets x2. Grand final guarantee on the membership should solve that All set I reckon
  8. Ooooohhhhh Afghanistan Tokyo olympics Space jam #2 The stars are aligning....
  9. Would like to see this more OLIVER - GOD AMONGST MEN
  10. Nah he's [censored] It's all Yze and Williams.... Get [censored]. Give the man his due. . One of the best players of his generation. An awesome bloke ( from Personal dealings - there was a footy trip when Bali happened - my local teM went to Cairns as did Adelaide and west Sydney magpies.... needless to say was awesome - until the reports of Bali and Phi Phi (RIP Troy. God bless Steven Armstrong - glad he ended up with s Premiership albeit at WC) anyhoo - yep he's the right bloke right now
  11. 46 years for me. 8 years for my son. We're high fiving and fist bumping like mad. We are in a caravan on the Nt Wa border near Kununurra waiting to pass through tomorrow. But [censored] me this is the best moment of my life right now. Beats having a Melbourne cup runner in 2005 and the run in to 2000 and 88 by the length of the flemington straight. What does tonight eclipses you?
  12. I still use Pivot. The true centre man position. Playing pivot to me means someone who basically plays in the centre square. Not rushing to defence or to F50. The guy who is always the go guy switch, the first defender when the ball bounces out of F50. Never gets out of 2nd gear (usually because he doesn't have another to go to!) But plays 100% game time. Not just another on baller who goes every where. The Greg Diesel Williams style of play.
  13. Well he's certainly been noticed now. I want to apologise to Harry. I was wrong on this guy. Never thought he would make it and actively called for TMac to go back when Tommo went down. Wrong o 2 counts there!! Outstanding last night in the Adelaide cauldron.
  14. Just watched Neale on AFL 360 FMD Tears again. love that man. Seeing him now like this is just [censored]. my most favourite memory of Neale - at Schwartz’s pub day after 2000 granny - the tab ran out.... Neale was the bloke that got stung - had to pay for a round of about 20 drinks... no arguments just did it. Schwarta in panic stations on the phone... 30 seconds later - tab back on -carry on... not far behind.. “take a [censored] mark Neita...”
  15. Spargo - kick the fu&&ing goal. OK that's 4. But hey it needed the extra. Running in clear 40 out - just kick the goal - don't pass it there
  16. Wasn't Matheson spruiking himself as the 'barometer' 2 weeks ago.... FMD
  17. assuming this Twitter poster is on here... well done you ?
  18. Viney will be a bonus if he plays. Salem is absolutely essential. This was most definitely a loss we had to have. We didn't do the things that have gots us here. The blocks and shepherds weren't there. We running off not helping the guy 5m away trying to get an easy handball. We were caught doing Hollywood crap. Fix this and we will competitive with Footscray. Do it not and we get thumped by 10 goals. All we need is to be competitive and then win or lose it will be close. I fully expect this to be the GF preview
  19. Sorry @ManDee - have fixed. The old autocorrect change of their to they're.... Kinda ruins the whole thing hey!
  20. Pie floaters are good - those photos look like vomit though! Adelaide really should make the most of their state though and have coffin bay oysters and penfolds wines as their food vans...
  21. Despite the whole Adelaide is [censored]. They do have somethings going for it. The little wander down from the city past treasury casino to Adelaide Oval really is special. Have some very fond memories of that walk and sitting on and near the hill for the Adelaide test. now that’s done [censored] Adelaide it’s a [censored]
  22. Tipping Weed to have a monster game. They have to put all their energy into stopping brown and tmac and koz. this will leave weed almost free. A very different prospect to being the only guy in the fwd line and being triple teamed
  23. Brown weed and tmac can all back up ruck and at worst pinch hit there. No issues rotating through all of them to change in game balance as required.
  24. Without knowing intrinsically what each individual is going through - it's impossible for us outside the group to know the right way to manage the loads on the players. But he is right in there needs to be management of the group to ensure fitness for the back end of the year, prevent any mental burnout and the guys peaking when it counts. You want the team settled for the last 4-6 weeks pre finals. Between now and then we are in a very enviable position where we can strategically 'rest' players, experiment in positions (why not leave max FF for a game and let Jackson/BB/weed take the load for example), and also rotate through the guys who deserve it in the 2s so as they're ready if And when injuries happen.
