Chris Judd was inducted into the Hall of Fame this week.
It got my wheels turning. WC are done for the year, after some disgraceful showings, and I'm consigned to bumping my long-running threads.
It made me cast my mind back to Judd's days at WC. That stretch of footy he played from 2004 to...
Weighing 2021 output against runs on the board before that, what is the current top 10?
You balance those criteria however you like but the question is not simply about 2021 form.
As always, it'll be interesting to see how folks balance midfielders against KPPs/ruckmen.
I have a sense of who...
Does anyone else listen to this guy? I don't even know if "funny" is the right word. His latest rant about Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka. And then the Parkland "reality show".
I can't quite put my finger on what makes him so listenable. It's something about him saying supposedly unsayable things...
Which teams will finish bottom four and what should they do at season's end?
As it stands, North Melbourne are the runaway favourites to finish bottom, followed by Gold Coast, Essendon and Hawthorn. I'm not sure Essendon and Hawthorn are certainties at this stage - just quoting the odds.
These don't have to be nicknames in wide circulation. They may be nicknames related only to what you call certain players.
Creativity/weirdness/stickiness/esoteric references are the only criteria.
Don't darken my door with crap like Pendles or CP5.
Here are my five current favourites, in no...
Just in case you're wondering...
Chief what is BigFooty's stance on neopronouns?
Noun-self pronouns can refer to animals - so your pronouns can be "bun/bunself" and "kitten/kittenself". Others refer to fantasy...
Readymade excitement machine who can play HB and midfield. Loves to break tackles. Exquisite decision-making and foot skills.
Could easily be the next Sharrod Wellingham.
Will turn 26 in March 2022, presumably with 80-90 games under his belt.
So who are the cheeky bastards sniffing round Oscar Allen?
Have you guys heard about this new position that's revolutionsed the game?
Some of the gang on Fox Footy have decided there's a new position and they're called "strikers"!
We should definitely all start talking about "strikers".
Because there have never been midfielders who went forward and...
R1 the blowtorch came for Collingwood and Essendon.
R2 it would have been Essendon again but it's probably GWS after they got done by the Dockers.
Also the umpire who didn't pay the free kick against Blicavs. That was putrid. Made me question my faith.
The question is self-explanatory. But I'll add a little two-parter.
1. Who from your club is most likely/best equipped to be AA for the first time in 2021?
2. Who among your established players would you love to be AA for the first time in 2021, purely because of the benefit it would deliver...
Looks like there's a coup afoot in Myanmar. Aung San Suu Kyi reaping what she sowed after providing a fig leaf of legitimacy to the the military. In her defence, I guess you could argue she simply never had the power to press them on anything.
The single article of impeachment goes to the Senate this week. And his trial is scheduled to begin the week of February 8 with the full Senate required to meet six days a week until the trial is complete.
What will happen at the end of it?
Joe Biden has been sworn-in as the 46th US president.
He's already 78. Is he going to give it another shake in 2024? Seems like a stretch, surely?
If not, VP Kamala Harris seems like the presumptive nominee. She'll have had an unmatched platform and will presumably count on the support of the...
