    The philosopher-warrior-king Marcus Aurelius is welcome anywhere

    The opening battle scene, where hell is unleashed, is spectacular

    Some of the dialogue was corny, but I enjoyed the movie anyway, vre syntrophos

    Living overseas as I do, I wasn't aware of BigFooty until about a year ago, when my esteemed son introduced me to it. He gets on to things faster than I do. Since then I've been a daily visitor, but been waiting for the moment to post.
    I was too young by a year or so to get the benefit of the 1958 Premiership. Unfortunately, that put me in the precise demographic to get the full abject misery of the 60s, 70s and 80s. The formative years... 64 was unlucky bordering on unfair, 66 was just unlucky and 69 was a failure -- best by a street, two games clear on top, out in straight sets. 70... no, let's not go there. Actually, I did... Southern Stand. Haven't quite been able to forget it.
    We had great sides and great players. Terry Waters was the early numero uno for me -- started out as the marking full forward, later played down back. Price, the Richardsons, Thommo, Greening, Tuddy,... and the great man who inspires my BF name and avatar, Macca. Must be the best shot for goal of all time. Radio commentators would say: 'McKenna's got the mark 60 yards out and you can put your glasses down -- he'll kick this.' And he would. It never occurred to me that he might miss, and on the rare occasions when he did, it was such a shock I'd have to sit down and recover my breath. Changed the game like Bradman did -- everybody kicks the drop punt now because of Peter McKenna.
    Random favourite moments... Colin Tully drop-kicking 70 yards and more at just about every ground in the comp, Len Thompson goaling from just forward of the wing at Windy Hill -- a drop kick after the three-quarter time siren... at least 80 yards. I'd love to know if anyone else remembers that.
    Fast forward...Daicos -- any moment is a favourite.
    The 1990 GF -- I was at that one, too, having flown in for the occasion. When Dougie Barwick kicked that goal in the last quarter and we knew the pain was over, the noise transcended the word 'noise.' It was a moment for the ages. The concrete fabric of the Northern Stand vibrated -- an engineer could comment on the potential consequences.
    2010 -- I wasn't there, but watched the game at my sister's house and afterwards walked with my son to a pub in Collingwood. I have a photo that shows his happiness at my happiness. He's a Pie too, though born and raised overseas, and knows more about the game than most people living all their lives in Melbourne. I'm a proud man, for many reasons.
    This year... we have the potential, although it's not quite 2010 -- maybe a year's development shy of it? The backline will be good if it gels and the young players progress. The midfield will be anything up to sensational. The forward line will be good if the small forwards prosper -- and there's every reason they could. Moore will keep getting better, but he's not ready to carry the load. Grundy, Pendles, etc. will be... Grundy, Pendles, etc.
    I'm hopeful. Two flags is better than none, but not enough for a lifetime that should have seen half a dozen or more. I'm ready. Bring it on, I say.

    Hi, I'm Billy.
    I joined the community about 2 or 3 years ago.
    1st post got banned by Dlanod.
    2nd post got banned by Dlanod.
    What's up with Lions supporters anyway?

    My favourite Collingwood moment was when Rene Kink told me off at a signing at McDonalds. He said I pushed in. I told him just sign my white Ronald McDonald frisbee and hold the lecture. He didn't quite know how to handle this 5 year old. Anyway, he shook his head and did what he was told!

    My father got me into the pies. He came over from Italy when he was a young kid, and thought he was following Juventus.

    My favourite player is still Darren Millane (I feel he just never left us).

    Be nice to me......and be nice to your mothers.

    Hi everyone I go for Collingwood

    Been reading bigfooty for a while and thought I would join up before the new season starts. Looking forward to the start of the season and keen to see how the young up and coming players go this year.

    Greetings fellow Pies fans, first time I have posted here, I usually post only on Nicks magpies board. I have been a Pies man for over fifty years, a lot of GF heartbreak in that time, but some wonderful moments too, our two GF wins being the best,90 and 10. The win over the swans was a great one fo rthe memory bank too, fantastic win, so rapt. If we hit our straps we can make the finals, and isn't it great to see the Sydney ducks and hawks winless, so glad the suns smashed the piss and poo, man what a hiding, end of the hawks for along time I reckon. Anyway, go Pies and see all you folks later, cheers.

    Hi guys first poster
    Mad pie man ,mad pie family !
    The old man played cricket footy and worked for wren as a cockatoo
    My memory's include sitting on stacky seniors knee in the past players pavilion with some peanuts (remember him)
    Dad would get me at half time and into the rooms the doorman would say good on ya darky and we were in
    After the game he would be in a school in the social club (non members)with the greats Merrett,Richards rose and Mann 1 pot each and home me a raspberry
    I was there when Bomber Clifford stuffed up and was told by my old man :TO pull his head in an remember who he represents. End of bomber off to port you go
    When possible I go to training and will post when I can
    Dad always said there were two things that you could count on
    Collingwood and phar lap
    This club supported my and many other families during the depression
    I wouldn't be here if not for them!
    THATS the difference

    Fantastic post. Not often - ever? - we have a poster with a connection to John Wren. Some serious (and colourful) Collingwood history right there.

    Great post great history.

    Extra likes for the Phar Lap mention. (I'm one of the racing nuts around here; we're all Collingwood nuts that's a given. Actually The real nuts was Gordon Coventry, but I digress)

    Enjoy your time here
