  1. Ratts will be looking for plenty of "scoreboard nourishment" ... (FFS !!!)
  2. Wheatley and robbo are just weird. It's like watching a condescending pastoral care worker humouring a dementia patient. Binman .... those 2 sentences alone will surely see that post winning the post of the year award. Those footy shows don't come close to your podcasts. As for King, given the way he wibble wobbles, he would be an ideal host for a new show "AFL 180". (FWIW I can remember when he was player and attended my son's Auskick (late 90s). Surprisingly he was really good with the kids. ) Lyon (both of them) are morons. The Ross variety thought that the Dogs would win the 2021 flag because Goodie was coaching from the bench, putting him at a disadvantage. The Garry variety simply prattles on, particularly when providing his 'special' comments during matches. I used to think that Jonathan Brown was a meathead. I was wrong; he clearly isn't. I respect him. He is one of the few that is like Mr Ed ... he only speaks when he's got something to say. For example, he came right out and said that the Saints don't have enough top end talent. I don't mind Reiwoldt either ... that's Nick, not his odious cousin. I don't mind Montagna either. He was totally on the Dees last year.
  3. I hope it isnt all balloted seats. If the Dees make the granny, I'd hate to miss it ... I'm ok with queuing up from sparrow's fart if I miss out in the ballot. PS ... I'm also an MFC member.
  4. Sri Lanka's keeper is called Dickwella. Sounds like a name from a Carry On movie.
  5. That is an excellent observation.
  6. Fox AFL News. Lead story was the subhuman De Goey back at training. Then 2 other stories ... one was Hardwick saying the club should do everything to keep Baker. Can't remember the other story. The fourth ... yes the fourth ... story was Clarry signing on. Can you believe that?? It is massive news.
  7. It all makes sense .... He was on the bench when Bedford kicked his second goal v Brisbane. Clarry stood up and raised his arms. He looked so happy ... it had the look of "I love my team mates, I love this club".
  8. Thankfully the Club has not listed him as 4 - 6.
  9. I love inter alia his round the corner snaps for goal.
  10. I would rather see Jacko get stuck at Norf if Freo are not prepared to offer a suitable trade. Call freakin Freo's bluff if it comes to that. I do however have a cunning plan*. If it will keep him at MFC, the Club could offer him a 2 year extension with the proviso that if he still wants to leave (after the 2 year extension) the Club will do whatever is reasonably necessary to facilitate a trade to his preferred club. Hopefully he will have fallen in love with Melbourne in the meantime and not want to leave. Or fallen in love with a Melbourne girl (or boy if that is his preference) who doesn't want to leave Melbourne. Gotta think outside the square. *as per Baldrick
  11. Nah ... all those 10 years players had well and truly retired by the 90s.
  12. Watching the Norf/Crows match. It's actually quite entertaining .... kinda like watching a country footy match. It's about that standard.
  13. That's a great word. Well played !! 'Crotchety' is not bad either, but not as good as 'pernickity'.
  14. Saints ... very ordinary side. Steel ... shot for goal ... kicked out on the full. He's not a A grader. Recruits ... Jones & Crouch. Very average players. And too many players who aren't physically big enough.
  15. I was at the game ... WOW !!! I think there should have been more mention of Harmes' game. He was (like the usual suspects) fantastic. Also, Hibbo did a great job on Cameron. Hopefully we back up against the Crows. The Lions are woefully out of form. Their midfield (sans Bailey/Zorko, and perhaps even if they played) is not in the same league as our boys. And their tall forwards are very flakey. We match up very well against this side; hopefully we play them in the finals. Freo (obviously), Jee-long and Richmond pose more of a threat. I think we've got the Swans, Carlton and Bulldogs covered.
  16. No lawyers ... or guns .... or money?
  17. Wow .... that's awesome. A true legend ... RIP. Not quite the same, but I had an awesome experience on Friday night. Went to a corporate function (CEO was retiring) at Crown Palladium, 800 there ... they had a special surprise guest. The CEO told everyone to get on the dance floor. Then doors behind him opened ... It was Robbie Williams, with full band/dancers!! At first I thought it was an impersonator, but no ... it was actually Robbie Williams! Flew out especially for the private show. Even Triplechins (MC for the night) was on the dancefloor, and was videoing the show. I'm still in shock.
  18. Has he actually admitted guilt? Lisa Wilkinson says hi.
  19. Shame there were no AFL/VFL players with the surnames Wakeman, Emerson, Argent or Rolie! But how could you not include any of the Lord boys in deference/with reference to the late, great Jon Lord !!!!
  20. I wish Preuss was still on our list.
