Re: Are We Into Any Players

Dodoro needs to go. His drafting, over many years, has been average at best.

As I understand it Francis is lazy and has a poor attitude. How Dodoro didn't pick up on that prior to drafting him is completely beyond me.

Re: Agony & Ecstasy

However, my mail from an excellent source at the time was that in the lead up to the P.F. and G.F. Derek was doing more 'celebrating' than 'training' and was counselled on more than occasion about the bad example he was setting for a very young and inexperienced team. His refusal to take Sheedy's c...

Re: RIP John Clarke

Very sad. One of the funniest things I've seen was in The Games when he realized the 100mt track was short. Haha, yes! A truly magnificent scene. He was guest-host on Classic FM recently on a Saturday morning. In addition to playing some gorgeous music his knowledge and humour was second-to-none. A...

Awesome win by the Dogs. Clearly the best team for the past month.

Is it just me or does Buddy Franklin need to drop 5kg?

Re: The Draft. 2015.

Reading the media, Francis is being positioned as a third defender as he currently lacks the endurance to be a on baller Perhaps he's in the Luke Hodge mould? Havent seen the kid play so that's probably wild speculation He can play that loose man role that Hodge plays so well. But he's a great grab...

Another quality win last night, this one built on guts and determination.

Barring disaster, it should be a straight forward path to the final.

Re: Rugger World Cup.

****** flogged them. Foley was a beast and Pocock and Hooper are absolute animals. Agree with gimps, if we can replicate that form we are a massive chance to bring back Bill. Just a joy watching Pocock and Hooper go to work at the break downs. They are fit, strong, agile and courageous. The English...

Ditto. One of the most incredible endings to a sporting event I've ever seen. Those Brisbane players will be waking up this morning wondering what on earth happened.

Re: The Politics Thread.

Absolute nightmare for Shorten. With Abbott still at the wheel, Labor was a shoe in for the next election. Now with Malcolm, the darling of the Left, Bill could find himself with a real battle on his hands. The next polls are going to be fascinating. Shortens finished. Him and Abbott are now confin...

Re: THE CARLISLE TRADE

Carlton. #1 pick in the PSD. He won't make it to Carlton in one piece if he does that. Your faux tough guy stance is amusing but worthless. When he nominates Carlton we're f*****. Unless a club throws silly money at him. Considering that Carlton has the worst list in the competition, you'd have to ...

Yup. Started slow but is heating up. Takes a long time to convince your brain Vince Vaughn is not taking the piss.
The first series was slow as a wet week at the start, too.
True Detective was a belter from the very first episode!

Part of climate change is unseasonal weather more frequently. It's not just about the world getting hotter and there being less rain.
