    We do seem to be in the midst of an era where the age old norms and social compacts are no longer being adhered to.
    I think Social Media has played a significant role in that erosion.

    Interestingly YHF there has been talk around how the Power and the Giants have banned / reduced mobile phone usage after games and other times when at the club. I think it’s a great initiative.
    They come after one,
    They come after all,
    They can't handle all,
    Lets go....

    Stringer has a bit of the old swagger back.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    There is no doubt our anaemic forward line misses his X factor.
    We really need to focus recruiting on that very feature, minus the 'poor clubman' factor.

    I have no regrets about moving him on, but it does sting a bit knowing we lost a true forward talent when watching the likes of Dunkley, Wallis & Co bumbling around inside 50.

    I usually love a good bit of slapstick but the forward line fumbles are really getting old.
    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. "

    He'll never stop doing that, but there were shades of 2015 Stringer in some of his game yesterday.

    North are bad , just watched Hrovat run around in circles on the wing, legs were going but he wasn’t moving.
    I used to think he had something.

    Jeez Rozee can play a bit. Any wonder they were happy to hold the door for Wingard.

    Butters is a gun in the making too.

    As soon as Port did that deal with Freo to get in front of Adel and Us in the draft, I just New Rozee was theirs. I’m happy with Smith, but Rozee really looks good.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    I think they have been playing well for the first 4 odd games and not hitting the scoreboard, but now they are
