I know... it’s early... but I had a bit of time on my hands...
So here are some milestones that might (in some cases should) be hit in the next season (with the possibility of 6 new Life Members)
Career Games milestones:
Shane Mumford (192) needs 8
Matt De Boer (187) needs 13
On tomorrow night - being live-streamed
I think there’s three in it.
Nobody has won it twice (Jez could be the first)
We all know the story - 4 years at the Dogs for 10 games - thrown in at the last minute, even though we already had Cal Ward, as an extra uncontracted player, and 14 winless games in two years with the basket-case us. A role as a development coach and captain of the NEAFL side for two years...
Our goal kicking lately has been.... hmmm.... not so good? So who are our best in front of the big sticks and how do they actually compare?

Here's how it works...
So Adelaide away in week one and probably Port at home in week 2 (much better than the swans I reckon) then away to Geelong in the third week (hopefully at the MCG...
We have a tv thread, a movies thread so here is the music thread.....
What's the last couple of albums you bought? (do you still buy albums?)
What are you listening to at the moment?
Who was the last band/artist you saw live?

great move. Indigenous Round headlined by Dreamtime at the G - always Richmond v Essendon. Anzac always Collingwood v Essendon. Now the focus and marquee game in the Multicultural Round will be ours, along with the associated festival.
