Trident (5/10)



  1. I just noticed that Mansfield is anagram of Find Salem!!
  2. Rob, although living in LA, is a member here; we've been to a couple of games together. Other musically oriented Demon supporters are David Bland who some may remember from both the Go!! Show and Kommotion (he also attended games with Rob and myself) and the drummer from the Huxton Creepers, Archie Law.
  3. I have a signed (with certificate of authenticity) St Patrick's Day jumper.
  4. ""Certainly Tom did leave early, but with the blessing of the club and with the blessing of the players." - a fairly ambiguous statement there 😁
  5. I hadn't heard that Jurrah started drinking on that trip, but yes, I was aware of Gawn's Yawn. HWMNBN had already returned home, before the game took place... he wasn't even at the previous day's training session.
  6. I'd argue that his marking in general play was not so much grace as, because of the way he would land with his legs straight, a hyper-extension waiting to happen. But a brilliant, naturally gifted player. I saw him win the demo game against the Lions in Shanghai, pretty much off his own boot.
  7. I'm a little surprised this hadn't been posted already... https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/i-regret-it-jurrah-s-mixed-feelings-ahead-of-dees-grand-final-20210919-p58sz9.html
  8. Trac looked like he’d been dressed by Pee Wee Herman!
  9. Ridiculous… surely you must understand how the media works. He has most likely been fed a line of questioning relating to the Essendon 34 and unwittingly answered “yes”, giving the ‘journo’ a byline and theme for the resultant article.
  10. Well, they didn’t do Que Sera Sera. Is there any player named Ronnie on the market? Maybe Jesse’s coming back a la Walking My Way Back To You?
  11. Or maybe a Bic biro with the player’s name done on one of those Dymo labeling devices, stuck on the side?
  12. Nice to see the ABC News channel sport reporter being across it… she just stated that Melbourne coach Simon Goodwin and one of his players, Adem Yze are isolating with a case of gastro 😁
  13. I agree that any player who ran out on the ground for the club during the season, should be rewarded with a medal; they all contributed to getting us to the big dance (not just the 22 fortunate enough to take the field that day). There’s probably even an argument for ALL players on the list getting a medal, as it’s a team game, and they are all part of the team and they all contributed in one way or another.
  14. Hope this is acceptable on this forum as it applies as much to our indigenous players as it does to Eddie alone... in a word, incredible!! Every Step of the Way Tonight I went out from the kitchen And looked up at the stars from the yard I was hoping to get some perspective But sometimes perspective is hard I know my life is a blessing And all blessings come with a curse My enemies I know I can handle But friends now, well, they can be worse Oh, I’m so sick and tired of keeping it inside I’m so sick and tired today I remember the old ones’ hard travelling They’re with me every step of the way Thousands smile when I go through my paces They fall at my dancing feet They like to slap my back in high places They want to shake my hand on the street Oh, I love my beautiful children They clamber and climb all over me I close my eyes and I’m dreaming Of a world where they can just be I’m so sick and tired of keeping it all inside I’m so sick and tired today I remember the old ones’ hard travelling They’re with me every step of the way The old ones are walking beside me Each and every step of the way
