    Do you know where the Fitzroy shop is located? I would be very interested in a copy if I have any finds - which is unlikely given the arrangements I make with Christian Ganaban.

    Bill will love that description LOL.

    mianfei,

    Give them a call first. I got the last copy they had of that game but they were going to reprint it and a few others. Still worth going in for a guernsey or two (old style maroon & blue with white FFC, 70's-90's style royal blue and red with yellow FFC), books, posters, etc.

    The last minute of this game just got a run on The Front Bar for the sole reason of pointing out how bad the umpiring was.

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I have not been able to watch a Fitzroy game since the merger without shedding a tear. Still a very passionate Brisbane supporter, but will never compare to the love I had for the royboys.

    Favourite all time Fitzroy game was in 1992 v Collingwood. Pert puts the pies up with a minute left in the final quarter before Roosy flies over the pack and snaps truly. I remember running on to the field that day and giving Jeremy Guard (who was responsible for our last inside 50 of the game) a big head rub. My best football memory

    New to the forum, hope no one minds me joining the chat!

    Quite a few games against Essendon stand out in the memory - Tim Watson’s 300th which was one of Brad Boyd’s breakout games - we had a great win that day, Watson’s return from retirement the year before - we lost by a few points only to the eventual Baby Bombers premiers (could have been contenders that year 93), I also remember when I was just a a kid seeing Bill Duckworth hack at Bernie’s Achilles in the 83 semi, it was like watching Superman go down. And the 86 EF of course, my favourite Fitzroy memory (I’m sure I’m not alone!)

    I remember 93 well, we could have been real contenders that year. If memory serves, Roos broke his jaw in a state game and we lost 4 in a row - it may have been 94. Good list around that time

    We were certainly contenders...our season went downhill when Osborne, not Roos, was hit from behind by Worsfold in the state game,and his jaw was broken.Worsfold is a strange one,unloved with every good reason.And of course had no responsibility for the personal and collective disasters that engulfed West Coast.

    Worsfold broke Osborne's jaw in the 92 Game; Roos suffered a similar (accidental this time) fate at the hands of Martin Leslie the following year. Both incidents had an immediate negative impact on Fitzroy's respective seasons after the side had built up a fair bit of momentum.

    It’s the Roos one I remember I think. We were up against North at Princes Park and won by only a point a two. There was talk in the media that he’d come back early for that game but it didn’t happen, he did walk out of the players race just after the team but he was in his suit! I remember Lynch gave Carey a bath that day, Lynch in 93 was one of the best seasons I remember an individual player having. All Australian full back but kicked about 60 goals as well

    Im going back maybe to early 70s. At the Junction oval the day the fog rolled in off the bay in the last quarter. You couldnt see more than 50 yards. The umpire had to run the length of the field to signal to the other goal umpire a goal had been scored before he could bounce the ball.:)

    Im thinking it was against Carlton as that why I would have been there and im not 100% but I think the Blues won in a close one.

    The fog game at Junction Oval was Round 21, August 21 1971. Fitzroy won by 23 points.

    Correct...I was there and enjoyed giving Barassi a serve as he walked up the race after.We had the makings of a terrific team,but bad coaching and administration cost us,and promising talent like Shanahan,Weatherly...really good forwards, left,and recruits,especially those from interstate, were mucked around.

    Started going to the footy in 91' so didnt get to many Roys games but a couple I did that I remember were:

    92 rd 2

    Fitz def Ess. Was bloody hot and the new big screen wouldnt work... kept fizzling on and off... Fitzroy couldve won by 150 but Ess kicked like 11 goals in the last qtr to male it a "respectable" 10 goal loss..

    1995 i think.. footy park... Fitzroy beat Adelaide on a Friday night... was hilarious hearing 45000 crows fans moaning
