    Competitions Correctly pick the Round 1 team - Two Roosistence posters now up for grabs - Competition closes tonight (9/3/21)

    Timely question. The Roundone-o-trometer has worked its magic and I can now announce that the winner is..... Psicosis Second place was a tie between Heaps of fun and king of the road As my generosity knows no bounds, both second-place getters will receive a poster. (All winners, please PM...

    What are you Listening to?

    More conversation referencing, RobZ.....this is the dude I was banging on about. Big fan of his work.

    What are you Listening to?

    Very agreeable (first post-lockdown) gig, too. Hanlon and his battered, op shop guitars. Some appealing anecdotes between songs. Even played a few old standards for the diehards. Bit of a Billy Bragg vibe going on. Particularly enjoyed the duets with his 'other half', Shelley Short...

    What are you Listening to?

    Awesome. And yeah, with all due respect to Mr Goodman (who certainly doesn't need my validation to confirm his obvious genius status), that was probably my favourite part. Krupa is a trip. Absolute legend. I often find myself honing in on the drumming when listening to this stuff. Some of the...

    For another half hour or so, sm. Of course not. Although I may have to draw the line at something like a person claiming that 'Cunnington' was just them misspelling 'Tyson'.

    Player Watch #7: Jack Ziebell [Part II] - ©

    People on this forum do talk shallot of sh*t, so I'll go with the last one. Plus back in the real world, I hardly think Nobes or any of the butt coaches are about to come out and publicly say "Yeah nah, top bloke, but wouldn't be getting a game if he wasn't Captain", so to be fair it's a bit of...

    Four. In answer to your other question, the most important job is getting the 22 named players right. The person with the most names right of the 22 selected = winner winner (even if they happen to have **** all players named in the right positions). In the event of any ties wrt the above...

    Training Training Thread - News & Live Reports II

    Seems to be a bit of a forgotten man with all the shiny new kids about, but given Noble's emphasis on speed and quick ball movement, assuming he's fit and completely over the surgery, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Hally right in the mix for a spot in the Round 1 side. Who's with me?

    Analysis Game Day Threads 2021- a frank discuss

    Sea Stories were magic. One of my all-time fave Australian bands. I used to work with Penny at her 'day job' at a cafe in Greville Street. Really lovely person but without wishing to give away any inside secrets, like many before them, Sea Stories were a band built on a huge amount of internal...

    The Non-Footy Sports Discussion Thread

    Family moved here when he was 2 and left again when he was 9. I mean, c'mon, he's literally part of the furniture! I'm probably bias on account of being a Sixers fan, but I rate Thybulle and I'm glad we've claimed him. Brilliant defensive player, particularly around the arc. Hasn't been...

    Toast 2020 "ChoppyGun" Poster of the Year - Result

    I'd have Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski slightly ahead of it, but it was definitely right up there. Well done to Choppy for running such an entertaining off-season fiesta. And of course, congrats to (insert poster's name). I have very much enjoyed your posting over the last 12 months.

    To me the most fascinating and unexpected twist in all of this is the possibility that The Sharp were in fact ahead of their time.

    Game Day AFLW Round 1 Geelong v North Melbourne @ Baked Potato Stadium

    Awesome game, btw. A joy to watch. Everyone's covered the main stuff already, so won't be repeato guy. Personally, a highlight for me was the on-point defensive positioning of the Backline. Significant sections of the game where the Cats could hardly get it past the centre without it coming...
