GWS were worse than GCS. They must be so grateful that they got so many better draft picks and concessions. They never should have started them in the first place. Canberra and Tassie should have taken precedent.
I don't think GWS and Gold Coast will be around when my grandchildren are alive.

Hey Kirkswan, I wouldn't have thought anyone would miss my nonsense contribution lol. Thank you kindly for asking after me. A combination of factors really. Have been busy. Have been dealing with some family issues too. Nothing insurmountable but troublesome. Mostly though I just put the thing in neutral after draft and trade period and haven't motivated myself to put back in gear at start of season. Have been reading though. Thought a little freshen up may help me. Thanks for the nudge

You're fun and amusing, and don't take yourself too seriously. This board really needs you. When we all get too full of ourselves, you'll take the piss I mean mickey and bring us back down earth. So yes, I've missed you!

I'm very pleased to hear you're alive and kicking! :)

There were two draft picks I wanted last year, because of their names
Tom Sparrow (Melbourne) - can you imagine the commentary "The Swan Sparrow running out of defence ....." :oops:
and
Sydney Stack (making debut with Richmond), with commentary "Sydney's Sydney Stacks on the pressure on his opponent" :rolleyes:
:)

I confess to a guilty pleasure. It is probably more injurious than having a second caffe corretto at breakfast.

I am addicted to the vast entertainment provided by reading the Cult of Robbo thread on Footy's Fourth Estate. After a Bloods win I go to this thread to add to the jubilation. After a loss I visit to be reassured.

For years I had read, listened to and watched this human train wreck. I was concerned that I was alone in the universe in my puzzlement about the buffoon. Was he for real? Was he the prototype for the HG Nelson and Roy parodies?

Thanks to BF I have found like minded folk who when confronted with loopy Robbo argument or line just scratch their heads and ask themselves, 'Did he really say that?' The thread's humour is driven by antics of the buffoon himself.

Consider this example posted last week by another poster

bit extreme even by Robbo's standards

The poster then comments -

"History has called Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech one of greatest speeches of all time.

I think history is about to be rewritten."

There are some bloody humorous posters on BF

So why is Mark Robinson writing/talking/on TV?
Being fairly new to FoxFooty and AFL360 I thought he was drunk
1. That is one of the great existential questions of our time. Murdoch owns all the outlets where he "writes" and where he spouts his slurmons. Maybe the Slob is Murdoch's idea of a practical joke.
2. Yes, you are correct - he is always drunk.
