Re: Biffs,Bumps and Brawlers

Maybe it`s just me (being an old fart), but I miss the good old biffs and even some of the brawls that used to happen, the adrenalin rush and excitment when both teams got into it was amazing, AND 'normally' no matter how big a melee there had been, the damage wasn`t too bad. But I totally agree the...

Re: bush fires in nsw. I am in Merimbula.

We had 16 .m.m. in downtown Merimbula. While it is not enough to put the fires out, it is enough to green the place up, lift spirits a little and half fill some empty tanks. We have to have our tanks cleaned out as they are full of rubbish off the roof like ash which acrid and bird crap. So, the ra...

Re: Post 2019 and Pre 2020

In terms of the article, it’s a pretty damning indictment on Worsfold’s tenure as head coach. It’s been obvious to fans that the game plan has not worked when most needed. Opposition know exactly what to do when playing Essendon and our deploring lack of spine results in humiliation a la the 20 odd...

Re: Why the AFL is Bad for Australian Rules Football

In a word (or two) MONEY, as soon as you get the massive ammount of dollars generated by the game you are going to get greed, connivance and as much back-stabbing as it takes to put a few shit men in positions of power. Those that don`t toe the line simply disappear into the ether... it`s a f****** ...

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

Seems JD is not recovering as fast as hoped Daniher no certainty for AFL return in first half of the season February 5, 2020 — 10.36am Joe Daniher's wretched injury run continues, with the Essendon forward a chance to miss the first half of the AFL season.

Re: c*** nominations

And now we have f****** LOOTERS :evil: :evil: :evil:

Like it`s not bad enough to lose everything you've ever owned, and in some cases even loved ones as well, these rock-apes want to loot.

One can only hope they get what they deserve once caught, but some-how I doubt they will. :evil:

Re: bush fires in nsw. I am in Merimbula.

Yes we had ten mills of rain, just enough to wash the ash of the garden and veggies. More in other places but not enough we've heard about to put any fires out. When are these do-gooders magistrates and judges going to lock people up who insist on lightning fires. An implant I reckon so they can be...

ANY BASTARD that deliberately lights bushfires... If that fire causes the death of some poor innocent or brave fire fighter, then they should face a manslaughter charge. If it destroys property then the arsonist should lose every cent he/she owns, should be forced to sell all possesions including pr...
