One of the silver linings of the saga

Him and the rise of raz.

We have really good small fowards atm (green, tippa and raz) Just need to sure up the defence a bit and we'll be alright.

Anyone know who the person is amongst the Essendon blokes who chant who stole the Heart Chant based on Human League "Don't You Want to Baby"?

Pretty Annoying - As I came up with that actual chant from scratch back in the day.

What exactly do you disagree with? I'm not saying I'm in favour of the deal at all, but that the primary motivation behind the deal is money.

1. Everything 

2. and yet nothing.

3. Oh buggered if I know.

4. Actually I disagree with the notion that the game is (was) about promoting the AFL and that there is this massive untapped market of wanna be AFL fans just waiting for Port to rock up. Now before you point you you never said that refer to my point 3 above.

5. I need a holiday

The most argumentative, agreeable, humble, articulate and honest post all at once. I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Anyone know what was actually said about Murphy's Wife?

Usually by now we these things I have been told by someone in the know - which has not happened, and the media are a closed book.

NOTE: Clearly it was really fucked up.

My suspicion is that because it hasn't become public it must close to the truth.

Apparently something to do with Wayne Carey having slept with her early into her marriage with Marc

FWIW, which probably isnt much given the state of the media, ALL parties have denied Carey's name was mentioned on the field.

On the rumour itself, Carey himself has flatly denied he's even ever spoken to her and that Marc and himself have been dealing with the rumour for a long time only for it to raise its head again after the weekend.

Eh, I'm not saying it's definitely true, but those denials are pretty much obviously going to be made publicly, doesn't make it any less likely to be true than it was before those statements were made in my opinion.

Yeh its not categorical my any means, but from a PR viewpoint you wouldn't expect Carey to say something as strong as he's never even spoken to her if its not true, because something like that could be easily proven.

Either way whether he did it or not, kangaroo court will drag him over the coals again. My spidey senses are telling me Susie O'Brien and Clem Ford are writing an article on it  and rape culture as we speak

The thing is this shit has never been acceptable in AFL...

So I def dont need to read some Article about how the Sport needs to change its culture making such comments about a Woman, I ESP dont want hear the media saying that "it is not acceptable anymore to talk this way" and "The Boys club Banter needs to stop".

Reality is if it was in 1957, 1967, 1977, 1987 and even 1997 the Saints Players pathetic actions of speaking about a bloke's wife like that would have seen their actions evened up by the Carlton players before the Final Siren... imagine Syd Jackson's reaction if someone said that about John Nicholas Wife. 

That is exactly what would have happened if it was at North Port Oval or in a Country League.. It Makes you wonder if the Culture at St Kilda has really improved that much under this rebuild.

I didn't and I'm not big on booing ex players. But he forced a move in the lead up to our final against North a few years ago. Said he wanted to move closer to qld for family reasons then went to port. He didn't leave on good terms. Hibberd and Melksham got a few boos too but ryder copped it worse. The boos Sam Mitchell got were a lot louder than ryder to be fair

Several times since I was a child I have witnessed Essendon fans both boo and give bronx cheers to their own players over the years, so its hardly surprising an ex-player got booed.. McPhee and Stanton being two that come straight to mind.

Then there was also the 1983 Grand Final Walk Out... the greatest Walk Out of All Time.

The irony of Clarkson complaining about the umpires after getting the rub of the green and still losing wasn't lost on me.
