Yeah, I know. They have been pretty ignorant. Hopefully that changes.
And here's one for you, Jen.......did you know Melbourne is the only city in the world founded by a super-hero.....

That might explain why they re-named that stadium at Docklands, MARVEL Stadium....o_Oo_Oo_O

Batman (21 January 1801 – 6 May 1839) was an Australian grazier, entrepreneur and explorer. He settled in the north-east of the Van Diemen's Land Colony in the 1820s, and later as a leading member of the Port Phillip Association he led an expedition which explored the Port Phillip Bay area on the Australian mainland with a view to establishing a new settlement there. He is best known for his role in the founding of the settlement on the Yarra River which became the city of Melbourne, eventual capital of the new Colony of Victoria, and one of Australia's largest and most important cities.

As a kid I used to live in Fawkner and would get excited travelling past Batman station on the upfield train line

As much as he did well in his early life, unfortunately he was on a downward spiral in later life. I won't go into it here, as it's not the forum for it, but this poem tells some of his pain...


Monody on Batman's Hill

There is a solemn music on the breeze,
So sadly sighing over Batman's Hill;
There is a desolate language from the trees
Upon its mount, whose plaintive murmurs thrill.

Hush, they have ceased, but thro' the tendrils green,
A hollow moaning voice, the sound prolongs—
'Tis Batman's spirit hovering o'er the scene.
Weeps o'er his own and his children's wrongs.

– Anonymous, The Gazette, 1843

Same! I grew up in coolaroo, but had taken the upfield line a few times.

A great article and this is the quote I liked........."If you've got an ill-informed view and listen to comments made based on the past…we can't help that," he said.

Which is so true of the majority of VIC based media.

Twomey, at least, came up, stayed, got involved, took it all in, and reported it as it is. Hats off to him!:thumbsu:
You just get the feeling that although things aren’t where we want them to be right now, with the plans and actions Dewey and co. have in place and continue to work on, when things start to turn, they are going to turn quickly :thumbsu:

And fingers crossed only a couple of weeks away. Hopefully ready to rip it apart after the bye.

That was awesome. Interesting to see the amount of work Lukosius goes through talking about West Coast ect when he didn't up playing. I know he was rested but makes you think about all the players that do a lot of work on the opposition during the week but then get dropped.

Brilliant article.

Lots of media seeing the shift and change compared to last year, or last couple of years.
