  1. Never understood why peeps pop an "h" in his name. 😲
  2. In: Tackles that stick/pressure/learnings Out: Missed tackles/lack of pressure
  3. Hope you're right ... he certainly shouldn't. But not so sure about that.
  4. Here's a song for you. https://www.google.com/search?q=kumbaya&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBAU843AU843&oq=kumbaya&aqs=chrome..69i57j46i67i131i433j0i67i131i433j0i67j0i131i433i512j0i512l5.1534j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  5. Jackson reminds me of Grundy. An undersized ruckman. I think paying massive overs for him isn't justified. Good luck to Freo if they go down that path.
  6. Agree .... sadly. Happy to have seen a flag. Hopefully the team will be fitter next year and can challenge again. The filth brought in a few young players, which seems to have refreshed them. I think we need to do the same.
  7. Sportsbet Demons $1.39 Carlton $3.02. They seem pretty juicy odds on Carlton.
  8. Ian Dury summed it up best ... what a waste. The filth had a player (Johnston) playing his 9th game. 4 goals!! So disappointing. Bad enough to get overrun yet again ... but by the filth again.
  9. These conditions are not favourable to lumbering oafs wearing Peabody glasses.
  10. There have been quite a few matches this year where there have been late changes. Hopefully none tonight ...
  11. Hey Binnie .... are you confident? You are the person whose opinion* I respect the most. FWIW ... the day has started well for me. Got Wordle in 2/6! *on matters pertaining to our beloved Demons
  12. Annie, how about "nothing happening in this nick of the woods"? To digress, how about nouns used as verbs? e.g. "Abercromby Warbington-Smyth didn't medal in the 800 metres freestyle".
  13. I think it will be pretty much 'steady as she goes' selection wise. BBB in for Weid ... Harmes med sub. ANB is out of form and was terrible v Freo, but he is important to the structure of the side. Same with Sparrow and Spargo. Hunt and Melksham have played their roles well. Rivers has been OK. Go Dees ... if we lose this one my whole weekend will be ruined.
  14. The definitive mondegreen. Well played. There's a bathroom on the right ...
  15. Yes, it is a worrying trend. And not just by footballers. There is an easy answer to work out whether it should be "I" or "me". Say the sentence removing the other person's name ... e.g If it's "Abercrombie & I" just repeat the sentence deleting "Abercrombie &" ... Same with "Abercrombie & me". Try it ... https://grammar.yourdictionary.com/style-and-usage/when-to-use-i-or-me-in-a-sentence.html
  16. I know he's not currently in the mix, but if BBB remains injured and Weid doesn't improve I suspect the powers that be will seriously look at Joel Smith as a forward option. If nothing else he has a 'red hot go' and would at least make more of a contest than BBB and Weid. Also, his brain fades would be less damaging on the forward line than the back line.
  17. She constantly used double negatives which gave her comments the opposite meaning to what was intended. Double negatives are used in many songs ... "I ain't got no satisfaction". Which means the singer (Sir Mick) has indeed attained some degree of satisfaction. Should be "I don't have any satisfaction". Another example is Kiki Dee's (lol ... Dee) song I've got the Music in Me which starts "Ain't got no trouble in my life". Which literally means that she (unhappily) had trouble in her life because her status was not of a person with no trouble in her life. The following lyrics suggest that the opposite meaning was intended. I also hate "I seen the Demons play on Friday night". FFS. I'm just warming up.
  18. The "everythink' woman also said (and presumably still says) "youse" and was (and presumably remains) a frequent "double negative" user.
