    So wouldn't Buddy just say he's doing that? Start off his line and finish on it? Can you do it from anywhere on the ground?

  10. Re: Your Top 5 best Bulldog players ever (in order)

    Great call on Brown, left him out due to not being a one club player. Absolute freak of a player, and probably a better bloke by the looks of things than his image as a player suggests.

    I often think about Johnno in terms of what we missed out on in lieu of him changing his game. Reckon he'd have probably commanded more All Australian gongs as captain than the solitary one he did. ...

    He might have, or he might have faith in who we have in West and Cavarra etc. which seems unconvincing. Could be that when it came to the time to have it sorted there wasn't much there.

    Yep. They don't care whether the goals are scored from fluid play or from fifty metre penalties. They just want more goals.

  25. Re: Bruce McAvaney calls time on AFL commentary career

    Thank goodness for that. Hopefully a step in the right direction and a step away from the sycophantic guffawing he's been dishing up for years and that has permeated Ch7 commentary.
