This is clearly not an appropriate thread for our general board but I’m going to do it anyway.

I’ve had some champagne. My partner has gone off to watch the news - mostly New year 2021 retrospective stuff about the year that has passed. There’s only one part of 2021 that I choose to remember and I’m going to watch it again tonight.

What I’m going to do is attempt a personal NY message to everyone on the board. It will happen in no particular order of preference so don’t be alarmed if you feature lower down in the list. This is about universal love.

I’m warming up to my first post right now.

Okay let’s go.

Toump Ass - I love your sense of chaos and amusement in the ridiculous. You are also the author of one of my favourite posts on this board. I can’t be f’ed finding it but it was just after we lost to the Essendon top-ups team in response to Paul Roos talking about the team being ‘tired’. I also like that you’re a music lover and have one dog that is freaked out by you.

Have a wonderful New Year

Crimson Azure - I’ve always liked your user name. It’s a good balance of clever but not too clever. You are an excellent moderator and an example to us all. You have one of the loveliest pups I have seen.

Crimson, I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful new year.

I love that you have actually met Hassa which in my mind is a very big deal.

I’ve very much appreciated your podcast reviews and immediately decided to check some of them out. I still haven’t, but absolutely still intend to.

Imet, I hope you really enjoyed our eventual success as a club, and have a wonderful new year.

I love you A11 even despite your weird username. Every board needs someone who takes the piss and you’re it. I’m glad your true love in Nibbler has paid dividends. When he wasn’t traded, I was happiest for you. I know times have been super tough for you of late and I hope this improves for you and your family.

I wish you, A11, all the best things possible for the new year.

i don’t believe I have previously been the recipient of a bestowment so most honoured I am feeling. Hopefully a browse on BF on NYE is not totally indicative of the tragic state of my life. Actually, the family bubble are making use of our Caloundra apartment waiting for fireworks over the ocean prior to starting the New Year back home tomorrow. A perfect night; some stuff, more stuff, GF replay, BF, other stuff, goodnight.
Happy New Year PG, may 2022 bring more of your literary contributions, drunk or otherwise and more MFC joy for us all.

Awwwww, love you too Proper Gander!

You have the sharpest wit on bigfooty and I still think your food pictures are the best. I love your brilliant takedowns of annoying posters, even when it happens to be me <3. I look forward to reading your posts in the new year and thinking "Damn I wish I was half as funny as that". And I love you've heard of Arthur Russell.

Thanks for pulling me into line when I step a little bit over it.

Happy new year to you, and to everyone on the Dees board!

Was.

Thanks, your username was actually one I was tossing up but decided to go with a Melbourne lean.

PS: Haven't had a single drink yet...... Yet.

I’ve lost some momentum here.

MAXIMUM GAWNAGE I have long admired your work both here and on the Bay. Long may it continue. I’m particularly impressed that you jumped on the Gawn wagon years before anyone at all thought it was a good idea. Long live both you and Max Gawn!

Have the happiest of New Years!
