  1. You know my favorite thing about round one? The montage, nothing better than a good footy montage. I wish I had montage guy's voice I'd voice over my whole life.
  2. Our Spargo is not rubbish. He may be a slow, soft, small, can't kick, and rubbish; but he is not a porn star!
  3. By the way I can sense this thread getting derailed shortly. I don't mean to upset anyone or insight anything to extreme. Just wanted to voice my opinions.
  4. The great irony that his last decision as the president of Collingwood football club was to stand down early, a decision based solely on money. The financial loss from him staying and the left with theie victim mentality just constantly pushing until they got their way (mind you that won't be enough, it never is) outweighed the financial benefit of him staying and I would bet my mortgage on Eddie himself understanding and making that call. Even as he is personally attacked and called out for not being 100% perfect in his position in the public eye he still makes a call that benefits his football club. He made plenty of mistakes, plenty. But do all the good things he's done count for nothing? You could argue if it wasn't for him we may not be here to even discuss this. It's insane how easily the politically correct jump.on a scape goat. Wonder who will be next?
  5. Absolute witch hunt claims another victim. Don't dare make a mistake or be imperfect. Sad day.
  6. Haha fantastic work. One of my wife's go to entrée's. Won't be hoping in the pool in north east Vic... Although if we make finals a cannonball may be on the cards much to the kids delight.
  7. That's the one. Any sort of juice will work though.
  8. Chicken thigh brined in pickled jalapeano juice. Half smoked and finished on the BBQ skewered with red onion and capsicum. Just finished 12 straight, 2 days off then back for 12 so going to relax with a cigar and watch the footy. Can't wait.
  9. Alas there will be no smoking meat for Josh today, I'll be farming the pig instead of eating it, but go the Dee's none the less. Do have a nice big brisket lined up for father's day morning though.
  10. Was on the could-a-beens last weekend, coaching North Fremantle in the WA amateurs. They didn't probe him too hard there didn't seem to be any issues. Was enormously thankful for the opportunity Melbourne gave him after missing on 2(?) drafts. Found out on holiday he was traded which he said he didn't see coming. But loved his time at both Melbourne and Collingwood. Seemed like a genuinely nice fella, most guests on the could-a-beens are down to earth they don't stuff around much with the egos. Paul Spargo was another good interview...
  11. No problem, Vsauce is another fantastic YouTube channel. And depending on your interests numberphile and 3 blue 1 brown are also amazing
  12. Interested on people's thoughts on slection "mistakes" and a win against a top 8 team. For what it's worth I agreed with the frustration with our selection pre game on terms of pace yet here we stand with a win. How much of this game of ours is skill? How much is endeavor? How much is structure? I watched a fantastic video from Veritasium about luck that really makes one question success in general. Can't wait for Joeboy's review and the changes thread.
  13. Oops, had some bad calls in my day but yeah, that's a mulligan
  14. Agreed, horrible can of worms to open. But it's the AFL they can just make it up as they go. I honestly believe I will be following soccer in my lifetime as the number 2 sport in this country
  15. In my opinion the fact we need a social media platform to out law this behavior speaks volumes. We as a species can't seem to get past this. Eddie Betts summed it up best I reckon, he said "it's no longer good enough to say 'Im not racist' and think that's ok, you have to be actively fighting this" or something along those lines I was in the " that's terrible but I'm not a racist so it's not my problem camp" for a long time but I realised if I don't teach my kids to stand against it nothing will change. The coon cheese argument is a perfect example of where we are at for mine. "Why should we change the name, it has nothing to do with the racist side of the word it's named after the man who invented the process of creating that type of cheese" Then you hear a story for a young Aboriginal man who says do you know what it's like to have cheese thrown at you at school as a child a called a coon? To me that's where we are at. It would be great if as a community we didn't have to rename things like this, but I'd we don't nothing will change. All of a sudden changing the name of some cheese isn't the biggest deal is it? There is a fantastic south Park episode that centers around this problem where Stan tries to understand what it's like to be black and Token gets angry, it's not till the end that Stan says "I get it now, and it's I don't get it, I never will, I'll never understand what it's like to be black because I'm white" Isn't mean to start any arguments and feel free to delete if it's to provocative but that's my opinion anyway.
  16. I wonder who he would replace from the weekend for example. Harmed? Spargo? Brayshaw? Not sure it's an improvement is it?
  17. Oh yes I've been waiting for this one, for years I've argued with the Footscray boys at work who's the better midfield. I think we might see an all out gun fight Oliver and Petracca vs Macrae and Bontempelli. Wow. I've got a rack of beef ribs, a cape from scotch fillet and 2 dinosaur size tomahawk ribeyes, fair to say the father in law and I are going to eat like kings... Time for a beer, photos to come.
  18. It's 4 premiership points. We could lose this game and go undefeated for the rest of the year, but this one feels different... It's time for the new era to stand up, take control, and take this club foward. The old guard is done, they've battled as hard as they could but today is the day, against the old enemy, that we must rise. The old Melbourne would fold, fall, offer excuses, have a good team on paper but forget the game is played on the ground. I get the feeling these guys won't let that happen, there is something in the air that's for sure.
  19. Agreed. A rocket like that from the chairman is ok when you have an experienced list that understands their role well and lost their way a bit. A young team still learning, on a journey if you will, spells disaster. How many of our players think they now have to win the game of their own boot, and try too much. Our young captain is already playing sore, how far will he push himself. This isn't country footy.
  20. Sheesh HAHAHHA haven't heard that one in years. Out of curiosity how do you get the AFL stats pro packages I'm something of a forensic establisher myself
  21. Another weekday game, another early start for Josh. -3 at the moment and will get a bit colder before the sun comes up, better go make sure all the pigs are tucked in it's freezing! (Literally) Feel like we're on a hiding to nothing tonight, win by 10 goals and "it's only Adelaide", and God help us if it goes the other way. Adelaide will be looking at us as an opportunity, this will require professionalism, fly in get points fly out.
