The boy from bassendean tried to do the boy in bassendean
...something, something 'two little boys'.

Speaking of Rolf, anyone else aware of the original deleted verse from Tie me kangaroo down, sport?

Let me Abos go loose, Lou
Let me Abos go loose
They're of no further use, Lou
So let me Abos go loose.


Not pedophilia but it was probably a canary in the coalmine as to his character.

So... did he try to show you his "extra leg"?
No. In all seriousness, when the allegations became known, there were plenty of emails and calls amongst those of us who played those shows to see if anything happened. Thankfully it appears there wasn't anything.

And for the record, I would not consider my own comment to be funny, even though I intended it to be somewhat lighthearted. I guess that many people would have expressed a great degree of concern for anybody they knew who had even a passing relationship, and rightly so...

No worries. It's kinda weird thinking about it, obviously back then (early 90s) no-one had any idea, and frankly I don't think I even knew people did such things.

Anyway, just another vignette from the life and times of The Big E....

Yep we used to sing that at school. Probably went to air a few times on his TV show as well.

Times have changed.

I will preface this by saying I have no idea how clubs work out how many to have on the Senior list and how many on the Rookie list, but by my reckoning we have 35 on the Senior List and after the delisting of Tom McKenzie, 4 on the Rookie List. Obviously Zurhaar has to upgraded, making it 36 and 3. Surely that gives us 4 picks in the National draft or if we sign Walker as a DFA, 3 picks in that draft. That is 26, 27 and 47 and only 50 would be wasted unless we are able to do some pick swaps to convert 47 and 50 into something a little higher.

However wasting 50 is surely not such a problem if we think that having a reasonable DFA instead of pick 50, better suits our list requirements. Effectively pick 50 becomes a DFA selection. Or am I completely barking up the wrong tree?
Apologies for interrupting this conversation with inane trade talk but IF we don't intend on using 50 this year, why wouldn't we swap it for a similar pic next year rather than lose it altogether?
