    Just thinking about it Mantis played too.
    In personal conduct be always polite but never obsequious. None will respect you more than you respect yourself. Avoid quarrels as long as you can without yielding to imposition. But sustain your manhood always. Never bring a suit in law for assault and battery or for defamation. The law affords no remedy for such outrages that can satisfy the feelings of a true man.

    Didn't you play on the same team as us too?


    Another game I remember was against a team from the navy. One of their guys (he was huge) forgot that it was touch footy and there was no tackling and he ragdolled me on the wing. He swung me above his head and remembered the no tackling rule as he threw me on the ground. I can recall the grass rushing up towards me and him saying "oh shit. Sorry mate" all at the same time.

    Essendon have two ovals near Tullamarine, again the dimensions of the MCG and Docklands respectively.

    The new footy arms race - the number of training ovals!

    I expect one of the rich clubs will have a replica of every AFL ground in a few years time.

    That was a brilliant day. Gary Dempsey, Peter Welsh and other players from the '70's all played. And listening to EJ's rev ups was hilarious.

    Skinner Reserve works underway

    Will be finished by April 2022 - great second facility to train.

    Running track a good addition I think.

    I’ll wander over occasionally and check in on the progress. My daughter loves the playground there and we often go kick the footy, a shame to not have access to that for a while, but looks like it’ll be worth the wait.
