    Re: Footy isn't far away

    I just saw some highlights of the training session and what caught my eye is that Gia was on the field directing traffic
    We obviously preferred him to Corey and Russell
    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.

    I like our club as place that generally doesn't harbor absolute tossbags, doesn't cheat, doesn't risk our players health etc so I tend to like the Lebrons over the Jordans.

    To be clear I think we generally act to a slightly (or not so slight in some cases) higher standard than most if not all other clubs which is something I admire about them.

    Cheat, player health, and Jordan? Do tell...…….

    What happened in the eighties and nineties in the AFL wouldn't cut it now, nor would what Jordan did in those days cut it now.

    That was worded poorly, Jordan is just a tossbag. Referring to cheats and the like was AFL specific

    I would like to see all the cutouts be Twodogs. A sea of Twodogs should be enough to scare the life out of Toby Greene.*

    *Not that I know what Twodogs looks like.


    The Western Bulldogs have confirmed they want to line Marvel Stadium stands with cardboard replicas of its fans during the coronavirus lockout.

    The club said they were looking for a sponsor to help cover the costs in time for their Round 3 clash with Greater Western Sydney.

    The idea would be to paste faces of their members on the specially designed cardboard cutouts.

    Collingwood has also written to members about populating its home games with virtual Magpie fans.

    The AFL has not indicated when fans would be allowed to return to matches this year.

    Games will be closed off when the season restarts on June 11.

    Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge said the unusual idea had merit.

    “There’s a novelty factor to it and anything quirky that keeps everyone engaged and makes all our members and supporters feel good, I think it’s worthwhile exploring,” Beveridge said.

    “If you can see the faces of a mother, a father, a young kid or someone who’s been devoted to the Doggies for a long time then I think it’s all worthwhile. All those initiatives are a bit of fun.”

    The idea of virtual fans took flight during the return of South Korean baseball matches and gained greater exposure at a soccer match in Germany last week.

    Borussia Moenchengladbach arranged almost 13,000 cutouts of its supporters for its clash with Bayer Leverkusen behind closed gates.

    The cutouts line the stadium’s otherwise empty stands.

    My Uncles taught me how to box when I was a kid. I'd happily take Toby on.


    Funnily enough I was in Footscray this morning and I saw an old work friend that I hadn't seen in maybe ten years. I said I was good with faces and mentioned where we'd worked together so she mentioned her name and we stood aside for a chat. While we were chatting a bloke walked into our personal space so I gave him a "mate, FFS!" and gave him a look. She said "Nice. You've still got that glare" and reminded me of an incident I had completely forgotten about.

    More lively than a Gold Coast home game.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    AFL says 16-min quarters are only for the 2020 season and no changes to 4 man interchange bench.

    Re: Footy isn't far away

    I'm started to get interested in the footy again. So close but it's still a long wait.

    Does anyone have an update on Naughton?

    No update G but like you the interest is building in me too. I think with training started has been a big reason for me.
