The guy changed his story about the handball three times,
Until he struck upon the “God” version. Which stuck because his compatriots wouldn’t question Gods will.
After that cheat he spiralled into drug and alcohol addiction. Some might say he had a guilty conscience and this was his way out.
He did say at one time ”imagine how better a player I would have been if not for the drugs”. That’s pretty much a man at the lowest point.
He was a champion, he was an extraordinary talent. But his own on and off field actions should be included in his history and standing in the sport.
I think the reason he chose drugs was to get the same high as he did playing football. Carey, Ablett same. Happens often when players retire. It wouldn't have helped retiring in South America. sh*t is everywhere and cheap.

Maradonas real stardom was in Napoli Italy. He is like a god there. Known as "The King" even today..

I found this on Reddit, you can drive in heaps of world cities while listening to local radio stations. Got to love that its raining in Melbourne!

Snuck this one in.
Just a couple of hours before end of year. why?
While I’m not entirely against the change, I think it should have been publicised, or put to the people, first.
The Government, all governments, have been happy over the years to spend up big to tell us about changes in policy. This is a change in our national anthem yet until now I’ve heard squat.

I don't even know the majority of the words of our current anthem so any changes will be lost on me.

Could have a think about changing one of the later lines in the second verse, for those who’ve come across the seas we’ve boundless plains to share. The wording is a bit inaccurate and many of those who have arrived from across the seas in recent years would disagree with the boundless plains we have to share.

1990 GF on at 7pm tonight on Fox Footy if interested.
I've been watching quite a few of these classic games lately, the one thing which irks me is that they decide to skip some parts of the game.

A bit bemusing as its not like they need to hurry up to get to the next live game. Show the whole bloody thing! Open Mike with Tom Harley can wait 10 more mins

Anyone know what's happening with the supporter cut-outs? Can we pick them up at the Holden Centre now?
