Watching Super Bowl 57, it is interesting to watch a fairly physical game with bodies going everywhere yet after each encounter there is no little elbow in the guts as they pass each other, no push and shove and carry on after the contest etc. Maybe AFL guys need to get a bit more discipline into their games.
"The private party, thrown by Stake.com co-founder Bijan Tehrani, was held at 29 St Georges Rd on Monday night with “every hot influencer in Melbourne” there, along with US rapper YG who put on a private show for guests.
Mia Fevola, Jordan De Goey, James Hachem, Tommy Bugg, Sam Guggenheimer, Jasmine Tavares, Hannah Dalsasso, and Shaun Wilson and Tess Shanahan"
At the risk of getting way too far ahead of myself, if we were to fall into a place in the 8, due to our doing, or through other results, we could be in a fairly strong place in terms of on field soldiers. Week 1 is Friday Sept 2 ...... almost four weeks away. In that time, Cripps has probobly had a good rest and is ready to go, as will Kennedy and Hewett. Marchbank and Pittonet will have a few games under their belt (Marchy can play in the twos on the bye weekend!) Williams and Boyd should be ready as might Newman.
Make the first week in September and we could have a fairly strong squad! (Then all we need to do is to play to our full potential.....almost harder than over coming some of the injuries!!)
Sad to hear of the death of Judith Durham, lead singer of the Seekers. She was the 'sound' of the Seekers in the 60s that conquered the UK market and made the group a household name in Oz. Every time they had a reunion tour, they packed them out, and delivered every time. An icon of the Australian music scene has passed on....The Carnival is Over.
Is Jack Silvagni the ultimate medical sub? It is hard to think of a position on the ground that he couldn't cover (or assist in a suitable reshuffle) if we lose a soldier mid game. Back, forward, ruck, on ball. Think of the alternatives: Honey, Dow, Setterfield, Martin, Motlop etc. No real flexibility in the heat of a hard fought finals campaign. He might just end up being the ace in the pack!!
I know he copped a bad rap after the Grand Final fiasco, but Bat Out Of Hell is still one of the all time great albums, and his tour of Australia on the strength of that album was bloody good! The Meat is dead , but the music will definitely live on!!
B: Stocker Jones Newman HB: Saad, Weitering, Williams C: Hewett, Sam Walsh, Dow HF: J.Martin, C. Curnow, Fisher F: Silvagni, McKay, E. Curnow Foll: Pittonet Cripps Cerra Int: De Koning, Young, McGovern, Newnes Sub: Setterfield Emerg: Plowman, Kemp, Honey, Owies # Sam Docherty will return to the team when he is full healthy.
Crazy selections! Who are your midfielders rotating off the bench? Setterfield ahead of Kemp?
Not a great time for the VFL to have a bye!! We needed to get a game into Fisher, more work into Kemp and Carroll and possibly some limited game time for Charlie and McGovern. Now it’s all put back another week.😡
For the 50 yo+ amongst us who were ‘radio heads’ in the 60s, 70s and 80s, there’s a podcast that may be of interest. ‘Pilots of the Airwaves’ chats to the old jocks of the day about their ‘days in the sun’ and some of their unique experiences. Lee Simon, Ric Melbourne, Greg Evans, Peter Meehan, Liz Sullivan, Denis Scanlan etc etc.(Declared vested interest...through all podcast outlets!!)
