  1. When you’re channeling a bunch of choir boys and constantly attempting to. hijack the decision making process or appealing the umpires ruling karma applies.
  2. An absolute second half goalfest. LoLo may be a stylish way to get your lockdown home delivery but the floating rear suspension is so passé. Pump up your shocks! Enjoyed the Browns' contributions, Mitch unfortunately out with an inopportune injury, Ben showing something up forward and Campbell would be a major improvement in the big league. Talks common sense with more than a hint of authority. Plenty to like about from the guys that played, both veterans and rookies. Is Aaron Vandenberg a chance of a recall at some stage? Body and Soul player at his best.
  3. Chocos out there doing his thing. Encouraging the next generation.
  4. 6 Angus Brayshaw 5 Steven May 4 Jayden Hunt 3 Jake Lever 2 Ed Langdon 1. Tom Sparrow Honourable mentions; Max Gawn Christian Petracca Christian Salem Overall performance; ? After an at times proliferate exhibition turned the defensive screws to take the four points.
  5. Stanley Laurel Harmes and Oliver Hardy show is not amusing. Clear message at half time... Dump the Hollywood nonsense now!
  6. Time for some old school footy at the "G", give this mob of recalcitrant schoolboys a spanking. There's Darcy Parish, first/18 material we're told, who after a lengthy and indeterminate traineeship, is showing signs he about ready to matriculate. Trouble is there's a fly in the ointment. Clayton Oliver whose blue collar on the coal face approach, is guaranteed to heat up the contested ball contests at centre and boundary clearances. Too hot we fear for donish dilettantes. Keeping with the school analogy we fail to see any enforcer or school yard bully. But Jake Stringer best keep his Angus Young costume in the wardrobe and stay well clear of the school gate. With school hols starting its free passes to Luna Park. Demons 'home' deliver six of the best and send these pretenders packing.
  7. The Age may have shrunk from a broadsheet to a tabloid but fortunately the bean counters overlooked Realfooty. Where quality niche journalism still resides. Oscar may be back on the farm but Tom clearly has unfinished business in the big smoke.
  8. Its dinner time up here Rab! After lockdown #4 and now the bye, admittedly missing your pre-match Game Day culinary and hostelry bloggings.
  9. Any egg and bacon rolls sighted?
  10. Rinse Spin and Repeat Nathan Buckley revisits the crossroads Mark 2. Sells his soul to the devil, miraculously his team arises from the dreary depths of the AFL ladder and the demons comply. Presto! Bucks' reputation remains intact and the mythology persists. Last time El Diablo (Eddy) rewards Bucks with a new coaching contract. This time who knows but 'success' does have its own intrinsic rewards...
  11. 6 Luke Jackson 5 Max Gawn 4 Christian Petracca 3 Christian Salem 2 James Jordan 1 Jayden Hunt Honourable mentions; Ed Langdon Steven May Jake Lever Clayton Oliver Overall performance; Beaten by better team on the day. Mid-Season break an opportunity to rest and reset.
  12. Under utilised in OO too. Meanwhile the ‘Ugly Step Sisters’ get all the DL column space. Post ‘her’ brief but spectacular appearance at the Hawthorn Ball, Cinderella (MB) patiently awaits for Prince Charming (Goody) to get the second tall forward position ?properly fitted. Hopefully the horse and carriage doesn’t’ turn into a ?.
  13. Great to see Neale still 'playing on'. One of our favourite human beings. An inspirational man to many others, both in and out of footy. Despite being slightly overshadowed this year by other events, may BiG Freeze at 'G' remain a Melbourne sporting institution on Queen's Birthday Monday for years to come. And some sunshine be bought to bear on MND, it's treatment and the hope of a future cure.
  14. So who plays the abhorrent Beria, Eddie McGuire? Marginalized but still attempting to pull strings as the wannabe puppet master. Eddie not unlike Peter Sellars reprising Dr Strangelove, is capable of multiple roles in this black and white comedy, so will also play Stalin the newly deceased dictator). Mark Korda is typecast as Malenkev the heir apparent. Bridie O'Donnell courtesy of central committee casting will be Sventlana. Tony Shaw hideous choice, (there was no one else available) plays Vasily purely for his comic slapstick. That leaves Jeff Browne as a cunning Machiavellian figure, manipulating his ascent to power as Nikita Khrushchev. Throw in Peter Moore as Molotov and Nathan Buckley can enjoy his Figjam on crumpet.
  15. 1 Christian Petracca 2 Clayton Oliver 3 Tom McDonald 4 Kysaiah Pickett 5 Alex Neale- Bullen 6 Trent Rivers Honourable mentions; Max Gawn Charlie Spargo Steven May Angus Brayshaw Tom Sparrow Overall performance; Full blooded team response after subdued first half.
  16. All those fair weather sailors go and have a full time look in the mirror. This is not a good team in the making but a great one.
  17. A true visionary ... One problem couldn’t coach jack
  18. Wishing Mitch Robinson and his fellow Brisbane B ?‘s a bruising encounter at Giant colosseum this evening. Thumbs down ?? Demons no mercy.
  19. McGovern surely should be nominated for the inaugural Hayden Ballantyne Medal. Must be one of the most unsociable footballers going around. Any comeuppance coming this flat track bully’s way is welcome. That winning goal Tommy McDonald kicked on the road late 2018 with McGovern trying to tackle him down in the goal square over there was poetry in motion. Obviously has admirers on this thread and elsewhere All Australian? But nearly gagged when his physique is described as ‘chesty’. Would give Nik Nat a run at Weight Watchers. He is just a Big Mac feeding frenzy away from a Michelin rating. Perhaps the young Clarry comparison is more apt for young Dan. A transformation from country boy carrying some ? love to an athletic footballer awaits?
  20. Upgrade that from plain white to a sourdough wholemeal Brown rye without the pickled gherkin. Thanks!
  21. Sparrow a sound selection preferable to the lite-soy latte alternative being ‘floated’ by some DL pundits. We prefer our our ‘coffee’ ? and committed. No froth.
