    It's funny how the concept of 'local boys' changes with each generation. Back in the 1880s it would have been just literally local boys and spreading out toward Braybrook/Sunshine/Melton/etc over the years down to now where boys (and girls) from all over the metro area are considered 'local' in terms of recruitment nowadays.

    Although Geelong are doing a bloody good job of reestablishing boundarys again and getting kids like Dangerfield and Stephen and Dahlhaus to come 'home'.

    My school was in the outer eastern suburbs in Wantirna South from there Hayden Crozier went to a school in Rowville which is about 10 mins away, Tom Boyd went to a school in Croydon which is about 20 minutes away and Kieran McGunniess went to another school in Wantirna closest to my school.

    I think your clutching at straws here Easty.

    That's a simple one. I stand behind bay 31 and taunt the opposition supporters. I am an arms length away from the dunny, the food sellers and the bar. I can also see the TV monitors so I can tell exactly how long there is to go in the game.

    Re: The Woofer Insight

    Train line: V-Line from Kangaroo Flat to Southern Cross
    Started supporting in 1956
    I like to stand at games opposite the centre circle.

    Fave current player - The Bont.
    Fave grounds: Whitten Oval, MCG, Marvel
    Fave WO moment. The Pieman's intercept
    Fave H&A win: Chris Grant raining on the Bombers parade AND Steve Kolyniuk's running goal in time-on at the "G" to sink the Pies.
    Fave Final Moments. I could write a book! I'll go "The Wall of Biggs."

    I'll finish the rest later. Have to think.
    Great post. Thanks for the enjoyment.
