Re: 2018 AFL Finals Series

Both teams were impressive - but the best result happened in the end.. I'd rather the Priemership be on the other side of the Nullabor than in the hands of Collingwood, Richmond or Melbourne. What this all says to me, is that it's gunna be f***ing difficult to get a top 4 birth next year. I can't se...

Re: SACK SMITH

Anyone know the captain of the Titanic? LOL - That was Smith too. The NSW media Mafia are circling the wagons and promoting the idea that Clark returns as National Captain. The Bobby Simpson option..... WTF!!!!! These flogs just can't seem to countenance an Australian Team that's not captained and ...

Re: SACK SMITH

Disgraceful! I've lost all respect for Smith and Lehman. I didn't have any for Warner in the first instance. All three must go. This is line-in-the-sand stuff. 'Underarm Two'. The conspiring to cheat was bad enough but then the bald-faced mea culpa with the expectation that this will blow over!!! Di...

Re: Cops raid Thompsons house

Well Well Well......

Let's see the media reaction to Bomber...as opposed to Hirdy.

From my recollection - Hirdy was stalked by media flogs - not raided by police (who supposedly need evidence)

Family day in Bundoora - 19 of us at the table with a couple 0f waifs and strays from NZ and USA.

From what I can recall - a good day was had by all.

Re: Un and Trump - Two Prize ********

It really is time for all the President's men to do something like overthrow him because he really is unhinged. As if Kim Jong-un needs any provocation. Our worst nightmare could be realised - an unstable Trump with his little fingers on the nuclear trigger. We all have seen his lack of self contro...

Re: Adelaide v Richmond Grand Final

For mine - I think that Ningthdom were dealt a perfect hand. They got the double chance (with the same amount of wins that the Bulldogs had last year) and got to play their 3 games on their home ground. With their Feral supporter base - its equivalent to The Eagles or The Crows playing ALL FINALS at...

Re: Pick 1

If it's a race for the wooden spoon - and St Failure and Hawthorn are the two horses in the race - I know who will be winning that contest in a Winx type performance.

Neither embarrassing or interesting.

Re: Norf

I notice that after begging the AFL for their own marque game they had to shut the gates at Etihad last night or those two mega-teams :roll:

Could even get 50,000 between them on a public holiday Friday with no competition.

Pathetic!

How's 62 wickets at 19. That is one hell of shield season for a bowler.
Huge. How Mennie got a Test gig ahead of him I'll never know.
He was chosen by the tried and true method of 'Tic Tac Toe'

Great effort Vics!

This should put us up a Division to play against Zimbabwe, West Indies, Bangladesh, Pakistan and the sheep botherers.

Davey the brave-heart! Dud. Stunned to hear his career stats recently. Overall, he has a great test record. However, 17 of his 18 test centuries have come in Australia and South Africa (who have similar pitches to ours). it use to be that the hardest tour to be on as a visiting player was Australia...

Re: Australian Tour of India 2017

All to no avail I'm afraid.

They've batted us out of this test match (as India has a habit of doing on their own turf).

Now it's up to our top order to save this test match.

Biggest test for the 'flat-track bully' Warner.

Re: Australian Tour of India 2017

Holding their nerve on a slow grinding day - this is what Test Cricket is all about.

Wade needs to go on and make a score tomorrow - give us a decent lead.

Still anyone's game with the Aussies having their nose in front.
