Only just saw this sad news.Greetings all.
It is my unfortunate duty to inform you all of the passing of one of our own.
On Sunday our dear mate Deaneus! eventually succumbed to his long battle with cancer.
His beloved wife was with him at the end.
It's amazing how close you can feel to someone you've never actually met in person.
Dean had a fantastic sense of humour and have no doubt he would love you all to recount the fond memories you have of him.
Please raise a glass to his memory when you get a chance.
*please note, there is a brilliant thread on the Adelaide board celebrating his time on BigFooty that is worth a read.
Headless in the votes.
We really got stuck into them in the first quarter, piling on 6 goals and helping us keep them at bay to half time. However, the third quarter I think we all got caught waiting in the queues for the free sandwiches and we let them get back into the game – we only led by one solitary point at three quarter time.
The sandwiches were nourishing, and Proper Gander (who, I believe, enjoyed an egg and cress sandwich) came out and went nuts in the last quarter, booting 3 goals and leading us to a comfortable 34-point victory.
Time for your speech, sante!
So I took myself out of defence for most of Season 32, and I think we would all agree that it was a fantastic thing for the fortunes of the team.
This season’s winner of the defender of the year is a poster that we all love. He’s someone that I’ve personally always wanted to keep around and have step back into posting around the place, and I was delighted to see that happen a bit more this season.
it’s amazing what can happen when you refuse to let someone retire, isn’t it?
Anyway, I’m very happy to announce that sante is the winner of the S32 Defender Of The Year award for Mt. Buller.
This had to be the round we lost. I mean, the Dragons always seem to beat us and we were due a loss. Well and truly.
WELL GUESS WHAT? WE DIDN’T LOSE HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Yep – another win to add to our streak was the bounty of Round 7, although it did end up closer at the end than what it was shaping up to be at half time. It was actually a really even performance from our team - jmoo wan kicked 5 goals straight, Proper Gander jagged 4, while moginie continued his purple patch of form off the wing.
