Took a while for this to be reported! I read the book in one night. Lynchy was a bit vague on the old fitzroy days, he could've embellished a bit more don't you reckon?

FitzroyRamone told me I was mentioned so recently when I had an hour to kill at Borders I had a quick squiz, but didn't see my name anywhere in that section.

Where am I, in the obituaries?

The best way to forget about there being no footy on is to catch up on some footy reading instead.

Thanks for the tip, Killer. I was going to buy Lynchy's book this weekend, but might have to get Chris Donald's book on Bulldog instead.

1996? Lynchy left at the end of 1993.
Name change to M.O.B. (Masters of Bull ... dust) 1994-96 by ratification of a meeting in Eltham in which Wade chucked all over the table.

Levo - No, haven't heard of them, unless any of them ended up mingling with us at a later date?

I read that....EVERY lions fan should read his book IMHO - i felt he could put more about himself but hes not that type of person.

I remember seeying a banner at lions melb games with 'The Lynch Club' was it the same ones... Id wished I went over to melb to sit near them sometimes....

There was a 'The Lynch Mob' banner that flew proudly at many Brisbane matches until the host became ... err ... interned for a spell.

Its quite possible you saw that but don't recall the wording accurately?
