    Geez, The Weagles are off the planet!

    I just had a peek at their Website ( covid free I hope). Currently, to get a match access membership you have to go through an "In the Wings" waiting process. This costs $55 PA.

    Their premium memberships ( reserved seat) are $1675 and $1195 .

    The "Club 87" ( $1675) appears to be the equivalent of my Trident Membership (just over $600)

    They are rolling in it!

    After Tom marked Harmes' goal and kicked his hardly any players went to him even tho it came at an important time and was the one to put us in front of a fast starting Hawks. 

    Harmes wen to him and was animated but it looked more like 'what have you done' and Bedford was excited.  Weideman and Fritsch reactions were minimal at best. 

    To me the overall lack of reaction says a bit about what teammates thought.

    Maybe Luci. But remember, there was a review, so that may have muted the celebrations?

    I must say that I find it strange that people go to a game and don't cheer their team, but just continually knock players from the other side. 

    How is that a good day at the footy?

    I think a good supporter can do both Red. Cheers for their own and  a bit of banter against the opposition.

    Abuse is reserved for the maggots!

    Agee Bitter, but nevertheless I was feeling uncomfortable.

    Maybe it had something to do with being surrounded by drunken Hawks fans.

    I, on the other hand, was in much the better company of a couple of drunken Demon fans!

    Does Lever look like he’s lost about 4 m of pace? He really struggled to get moving yesterday. The fumbles and mistakes I can put down to lack of match practice, but to me his foot injury has slowed him down considerably

    He was certainly below his best Neil but I think we need to give him another week or two before making that call.

    Well as it turns out we actually just fell over the line against the Hawks! This is why I will NOT be taking football advice and any game predictions from some body bulking, Basil Rathbone loving, bogan from the northern outskirts of Melbourne in the future! And you can include Frogs from Perth and pensioners from Burwood in that as well. And long live Prince Andrew, the rightful Duke of York forever! 

    Backing Randy Andy won't get you that Gong you've been fantasising about for years Earl!

  7. Max.        I've said it before but he's the best ruckman I've seen . He's got the lot

    Oliver.      First quarter in particular was stupendous - especially as the Hawks were pressing us.

    Trac 

    May.    Despite a couple of rare errors he provided a wall down back

    Viney    A strong return. His best consistent form for a while

    Bowey.  A few deserved a vote but I have money on Bowey for rising star so....

  8. Well I'm happy to say I'll be going to the footy in daylight - at least for a short while. I had therefore, planned to return to The Manor at a decent hour but as I'm meeting with a couple of Demonland lunatics, the post game libations could be my Boozerloo .

    As to the forced changes ...... well you always want to go in with your best team but .....footy being footy, that rarely happens. 

    Despite that, we are still putting a bloody good outfit on the 'G that will squash the Hawks without overmuch bother. However, that statement is subject to review, if we lose ( touch giant tree) anymore pre game.

    Will have eyes on Bedford of course but Tmac must realise he's under pressure so he will be having a decent crack. Milkshake as a late in provides another point of interest .

    The skies are clear (ish) in Romsey, so I'm tipping decent conditions tonight, which may give Weid and BBB a chance to grab a couple

    Adversity often brings out the best, so on the punt, I'm going for Dees 40+ and I'll try and find a decent goals/possesions multi to go with it.

    My ungrateful domestic staff still haven't returned from their free camping trip ( maybe they're having difficulty  unpitching their tents) so The Manor is a bleak and lonely place currently.  

    Dees winning streak to continue.

    Surely even Richmond fans would be a little circumspect about this win. West Coast are taking the wizz with their effort here.

    I just watched Nankervis, the slowest human on the planet, just jog to an open goal, only to give a Joe the Goose to Riewoldt. Anyone gonna defend, or…?

    They are Richmond fans ! I doubt they would  know circumspect from circumcision !!!

    I sincerely hope WC want it more Dub - I've placed a "responsible" investment on them.

    Well that idea has  turned into [censored] in a basket with quite alarming alacrity .

    WC have a good defence and forward line again. But midfield is in bits

    not sure how tonight will play out. Might come down to who wants it more

    I sincerely hope WC want it more Dub - I've placed a "responsible" investment on them.
