When was that? There is a guy up here who used to be in the Richmond cheer squad for a while. His name was fred (well it wasn't but that will do) but everyone knew him as MAD fred.Richmond is right up there. When I was working there they had a 'rebel' cheer squad called The Grog Squad. Used to stand at M1/M2 behind the goals on Punt Rd end. Bunch of animals.
I've been a staunch critic of Mason, mainly because I just don't think he's worked hard enough. Yes, continuity has been important, but attitude, more than anything was the thing I've been concerned about.So much to enjoy in this game, Goldy, Taz, Joy, Souv, Zurhaar, and I’ll just add how hard Mason Wood is working.
This might be bias, but I see bugger all difference between Nick Larkey and Tom Lynch. Same height, same skills, same attributes, just a few kgs in it.Zurhaar two big bags for the year is very nice. Still think Larkey has barely scraped the surface of what he can become though. Give him another couple of years and he looks like a type that could really get hold of teams and kick some big bags.
5+ goals in a game by NMFC Players 2000-Larkey 5, Zurhaar 5, Brown 3
Shades of Longmire, McAdam and Carey in ‘93.

Also right at the end of the collingwood game when he took that huge fall and bounced his head off the ground, he was very dazed but refused to leave the field for the last. Was a good moment in a great game and raised my respectI've been a staunch critic of Mason, mainly because I just don't think he's worked hard enough.

But, if it's true that one of the inner scrots types implied, that he was given a very clear message in this regard, he's beginning to respond, particularly in his work off the ball. His imitation Jed tackle was a beauty - it was as if someone had said 'See, if he can do it, imagine what you could do, with your physique?' I thought his desire to come back on after getting the cork was symbolic too.
Early 2000s. They'd rock up blind and keep on drinking. Booted one out for urinating against the back wall at M1. Animals.When was that?

He and a mate went hunting once. They drove along Summerland way. Stopped by the side of the road at some random bush and headed off thru the scrub with a couple of rifles and a fu**en carton!!! Definitely an animal and not really a good one. Forgot to mention he was in the Grog Squad as well, he told me its name and said the other supporters were soft.
Props to Hunter Clarke actually, for taking that hit from JZ and coming back on. Good sign from a young player.Harder for longer. As predicted, the Saints responded physically after being touched up in the first but weren't able to sustain the heat. Add to that, aside from Bruce they had no avenue to goal.
I think that they too will be a side waking up farking sore for the next few days after playing us.
