  1. Has any team come from 44 points down at Geelong and win? Not for many years if at all. But I had hope late in the third quarter.
  2. Wow did I hear Eddie Maguire say in commentary about an Adelaide attempted kick “that boomerang won’t come back”? Does he realise that “My boomerang won’t come back” is one of the most racist songs of all time? Look up the lyrics if you doubt this. Eddie has worked in the media his whole life and I quite like him. But sometimes, like his comments about Adam Goodes and King Kong, his brain switches off.
  3. I remember Muhammad Ali was asked after going the distance against a very inferior boxer “why didn’t you knock him out?” His response “I don’t want to risk my life every time I fight” This was the Demons today. Life risking games coming up.....
  4. Geez, was I watching the same match as others? Playing away against a team which kicked unbelievably well for goal, got a good lead, and we buried them. This is a disappointing win?
  5. Viney’s absence was telling. The clearance rate would have been far, far better with him there.
  6. One of the worst wins I’ve seen by the Demons. But a win is a win, and we can only improve........can’t we?
  7. An actress? One of the world’s best. You must have heard about publicity. At work today just about everyone knew she was at training. At Melbourne training. In the off-season. You can’t buy exposure like this.
  8. Frost and Oscar would both be in my best 22.
  9. It looks like we got the best deal on the table
  10. Excellent post. We are good enough and well coached, so why can’t we bounce back just as WC did?
  11. Rubbish. We have the players. Add Lever, Hogan, a recruit like May and the natural improvement of a young side, top 4 for certain.
  12. If you could sell optimism like that, you would make a fortune. ?
  13. A step too far this year. Players will learn from this.
  14. I am. On Monday and Tuesday for work. I am normally garrulous, but if we lose I will be pretending I have a speech disability. If we win, do you think I could get away with wearing my Melbourne jumper in Perth?
  15. Bulla is handy to the airport, but I’ve never seen snow there. ?
  16. I don’t mind what the media says, but last year when a Collingwood supporting guy I work with sent me a mocking email about how I could now spend September at Buller (and other such stuff), a line was crossed. I responded that I would consider repeats of this bullying, and would report any repeat of stuff like this. It will be interesting if he tries something this year.
  17. Well I hope not. My heart would not handle the stress. A 60 point win would suffice. Even then I wouldn’t start celebrating until there was 5 minutes to go.?
  18. Speaks volumes about our culture. I’m certain attendance wasn’t compulsory, yet less than 24 hours after a bruising game they turned up on a cold wintery day.
  19. I hope Vince is under consideration for next week. I think he is still in our best 22.
  20. Really? I get the passion, but I hope most act with a touch of class.
  21. A bit of civility wouldn’t go astray. Kennett aside I have nothing against the Hawks. If we go out, this is the team I would hope to win. Purely hypothetically of course.
  22. Two things I’m sick of hearing: 1. The last game we played the Hawks. It was bloody 5 months ago. Countries reunite in a shorter time. 2. Clarkson. He’s not going to pull on the boots and I think Goody has him covered in the ciache’s box. Dees by 35.
