    Re: Mitch Wallis turns his back on free agency to sign long-term deal with Western Bulldogs

    That's great going. Watching him and Libba hunt together is pure pleasure. The average player only gets 65 games. Each game day is precious. When players publicly come out and say they do not want to be anywhere else, it is good for us on many levels.

    I still don't understand why Essendon recruited the players they did over the last couple of years. I said it at the time and the problem is even more blatant now. Why they went for 'cherry on top' players when they had no cake to put them on is a mystery.

    Still they won trade week and that's all that matters. Did their membership numbers get a dead cat bounce after? It's all I can think.
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "
