    lurking in the shadows of the matrix
    My take on life as well. No point getting stressed about the things you can not control. Everyone is different and everyone sees things in a different way.
    As much as I want to see us win flags and be at the top end most weeks I am happy to just go to the game, experience the ride and hope we can have a win.

    I remember asking my lat step dad who supported Fitzroy why he supported a merger with North over the Brisbane move that would see them remain the Lions. He simply said I want to see my team play each week. Going to the game every week was what was most important to him and he had been to 90% of the Fitzroy games from 1950 to 1995 when the merged. He did not go to the AFL after that. He was never fussed about winning flags , he just wanted to see his team live each weekend.

    I have seen us win 4 flags live so I am luckier than most so it is not the driving force behind my support.

    Made some tweaks to this, added some names and expanded the number of years.

    They also haven't had a homegrown ruckman retire with them since David Pittman in 1999.

    Doesn't look too shit hot that small. :/ Reminds me of a herd of zebras with the lines creating an optical illusion.

    Another crying caller on Ad radio...this time Western Bulldogs. It sounded remarkably like the Adelaide one, now wondering if someone is having fun hanging shit on both teams.

    I'm in Adelaide's corner. **** Lever.

    Don't nominate 1 of 9 potential clubs when 'going home'. The word is getting around that this all started when Adelaide 'low-balled' an opening offer for a contact extension.

    That Danny Frawley says Lever is the best spolier he has seen gives me great confidence in my view that Lever is chronically overrated anyway.

    when the salary cap floor is so high and trading is only happening for players under 26, these situations are just going to keep happening

    The poor sods. Their entire club has now had justice served. Well down Howe for winning the "real mark of the year!"

    Didn't win but think you should have? Doesn't matter, just get a trophy made and pretend you did.
    Next step is handing yourself a Premiership cup.

    Seven years ago Collingwood couldn't wait telling everyone how they were the biggest and best club in the land.

    Now they create fake mark of the year awards for their own scorned players.

    Glorious.
