  1. Yep, its a book called "The Australians". I have the original book. Sadly the book is in a storage facility overseas after a hasty covid-related departure. One day I'll retrieve it. I took a scan of the image and had it framed. We need an updated version :)
  2. The college football enthusiasts will also know it's also the Texas Longhorns football hand signal - "hookem horns"
  3. Great share, fantastic bit of history. Some things don't change - Coca Cola adverts!
  4. In the perfect world, outside Barass, I would like David Neitz to do it, he represented our modern struggle and is our leading game player. (Much like Richo doing it for the Tigers in 2017) But Lyon, despite his foibles, was one of our finest players and captains and is the obvious and worthy choice.
  5. Anyone on here buy this at auction? https://www.lotsearch.net/lot/a-melbourne-football-club-commemorative-sword-commemorating-125-years-of-28046208?page=11&orderBy=lot-startPrice&order=ASC
  6. Didn't realise he was into computer programming either.
  7. Hopefully this is the start of 5-6 years of consistently playing finals and giving ourselves a chance at the ultimate glory. But having finished first and earned the double chance, making the Grand final is a pass mark now.
  8. Haha we are living rent free in his head
  9. Even in normal years not everyone who wants to can get into the GF.
  10. Was interested to see the H&A w-l formlines for each of the premiership teams of the last 10 years. Premiership Team Form lines last 6 rounds of H&A Season: Richmond 2020 - 6-0 Richmond 2019 - 6-0 West Coast 2018 - 4-2 Richmond 2017 - 5-1 Western Bulldogs 2016 - 3-3 Hawthorn 2015 - 4-2 Hawthorn 2014 - 5-1 Hawthorn 2013 - 5-1 Sydney 2012 - 3-3 Geelong 2011 - 5-1 Formline Last 5 Games 2021 (not including final round) Melbourne - 3-1-1 Geelong - 4-1 Western Bulldogs - 3-2 Port Adelaide - 5-0 They are just stats but Port, despite their shaky record against top teams are a genuine threat based on the numbers.
  11. What a gutsy win. Our destiny is in our own hands.
  12. I finished the book just before lockdown, a great read, the descriptions of the last moments of the 64 GF were gripping. As always well done Supermercado.
  13. At least we would win the McClelland Trophy, first since 1990 ?
  14. A very interesting point about experience and games played. I thought we were lucky to get the 2 points. It's bizarre how we looked absolutely cooked half way through the 3rd and looked out of it early in the 4th off a 10 day break. I thought we were going to lose by 4 goals. Hopefully the two points are as good as a win by seasons end.
