We used to add the Little League scores onto the main game to see if we could scrape a win that way.
Plus ten points for winning the toss!

Yeah if the 2s or little league got up and plugger got 4 or more it was a pretty good day. Walked back to grandma's and told everyone about it.

I assumed this was Jeff Hilton but he only played 5 games for the Saints in '91 and one in '92. He did score (a point) in that 1992 game and Sandy is a good Saints man so it could have got a bit over-excited.
Must have been 91 tape then ( which would make more sense given first finals for so long.. ).. definitely Jeff Hilton. Just remember Sandy screaming when he scored.

They were dark dark years VDS66.

The horror of horrors for me was the start of the 1985 season.

4 100 point beltings in the first 7 rounds....the first 3 games were 100 point beltings.

The first 2 games were both at Moorabbin......Syd belted us by 110...….Carlton by 140 the next week...….can't tell you how depressing it was standing at ground level in the Social Club watching that stuff.....it's seared into my memory
Yeah but how good was then beating Fitzroy at Arctic Park on ANZAC Day in (from memory) Rd 5? Those kinda wins made me proud to be a Sainter despite the unrelenting adversity...

This topic has been cut and pasted onto SS! I guess they've run out things to say. I note with great amusement that the mega corkhead, Stone Cold, went off his tiny brain over it. Ironic, given he is one of the major reasons that forum has deteriorated so badly.

Hell hath no fury like a wannabe wharfie scorned!

What was his old identidy Drake? Was'nt he a well known stirrer on Saintsational?
He's a well known ********. Even the majority of SS posters hate him. He goes under the names of take away and parkeysainter to try and give himself a leg up. They're onto him. *******.

Yeah forget that joint and the personality disorders over there.

Con Gorganzola has been banned over there, wonder who he is here?

Fortunately everyone here is a certified genius with no issues.

Con G was Sonny Walters on BigFooty. Con and White Winmar were both strange.

As far as I know StoneCold is just StoneCold.
Better moderated here, with IMO, more informed views and better information than at the other fan forum

Totally agree, although that's a big call coming from kosifantutti! 😜
What is Con Gorozides up to? New identity? I thought Con was one of the better posters over there. He got frustrated, pissed off and administered out of the place. One of the reasons that formerly great site is on its last legs. They could take a leaf out of our mods' book. 😍

Yeah, I never minded Con as much as everyone else seemed to. He went off his nut occasionally but it wasn't that bad.

Your eccentrics are a crucial part of any forum. They add a bit of difference and spice things up a bit. The key is sound and consistent moderation.

What I've found on this site is that the mods intervene quickly and nip potential issues in the bud. They are also consistent. This creates better behaviour in posters.

Over on the unfortunately acronymed SS, the moderation was the problem. One poster in particular, threatened physical violence to several posters and posted vile and offensive abuse. He still posts, when others, like Con we're banned. The artist formerly known as White Winmar gave the only moderator (another problem) BFUSA a mighty send off, thanking him for ruining the site with his blatant bias and over officious attitude, when it suited. Then there were his favourites, who could behave as they liked, seemingly with little or no censure.

Go and have a look for yourself. The place isn't worth having you as a poster anymore. What a shame. In its glory days it was one of the best footy forums going around.

Sonny Walters is one of the posters that l miss off this forum now. He seemed to have boiled over with frustration during the year and l recall some mod interventions before he left, or maybe copped a ban. I think mostly he suffered from the perception difference between the spoken and written mediums and never took a breath before hitting the post button. Perhaps he'll return when the vibe picks up a bit..
