it's a real word with a scrabble score of 18.

Sorry, I don’t care where it is, I refuse to accept it. It’s equality.
I put it in the same basket as versing, farewelling, medalling.

( don’t get me started.)

Am I wrong in thinking Dane Swan was involved in a scandal in his playing years? The Pies have never really been an upright club, have they?
He and a couple of mates bashed a disabled cleaner in the CBD. Charming. The filth easily takes first prize in the terrible culture stakes. They also get more protection in the media than any other club.

Imagine if the public was made aware of every incident involving AFL players, particularly the filth. The mind boggles. For all the crap we put on media types, quite rightfully most of the time, they do players and clubs a number of favours over the course of a season.

*cromulent ;):moustache:
One famous example of a made up word eventually making its way into the dictionary is cromulent, which was coined specifically for the 1996 episode “Lisa the Iconoclast." In reference to Lisa's teacher, Miss Hoover explaining the questioning of the use of embiggen, says “it's a perfectly cromulent word.” 😀😉

Hawks got away with heaps. There are a few stories I was told not to spread by someone who would know. The 3 peat era Hawks were never publicly outed over the off field stuff but they were loose.
