    Ilija Grgic onto popped onto our radar when he rocked up to the club and asked if they had any size 16 boots he could buy, as he was a soccer player. I think we took one look at his and thought "now here's an idea"...

    I remember having a particularly bad result at a bail hearing one day, which was followed by an open door, thoroughly underserved chewing out by a sergeant on an unrelated matter.

    I was absolutely steaming by the time I headed for the locker room, so when the Inspector saw me and asked how I went at court, I replied, without breaking stride "He's been bailed to live with a co-offender and that's all I've got to say".

    I apologised the next day, but he replied, "please don't apologise, I love that you're passionate enough to be angry about it".

    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world — for the better.

    Good Senior Constable. Shit Sergeant. Good Inspector.

    Keep safe with your COVID duties. Hopefully that helps/gives you an opportunity with promotion of your seeking it.

    Re: Favourite fringe bulldogs

    Start of thread: Who are your favourite Bulldogs who could never quite cement a best 22 spot?

    Thread 5 pages in: And that's the story of how this former AFL footballer escaped justice after threatening to kill someone.

    Was quite a journey

    Actually Ijlia knew damn well where to get size 16 boots (he hadn't been walking around barefoot for the previous 17 years) but he wanted to draw the footy club's attention so he fronted up to reception and made a point of asking Glenys knowing that she would go and ask Garry Merrington and Garry Merrington would say "Hang on, there is a kid who wants size 16 boots? Why haven't I heard of him already?"

    From what I recall it was actually his school teacher/coach at Melbourne High who told him to do this...…..

    I think you mean Adrian Nicol who broke his leg? He did a major spoil to get the ball out of bounds and held on to win. Maybe against Magpies?

    Wira was seen as a Koster replacement.

    There is a bit of reading but this might help. Wira

    Shit, I put up that thread up in 2006. Has WOOF really been around that long?
    The 1995 Planing Article you put up and ‘bumped’ recently talks about Wira’s trade. I think Wira and Grant were good mates and Grant was shatted when Wallace traded him.

    Yeah, that sounds more like it. Such a shame for him as he never got back from the injury.
