Footy 2014

 Thought I'd get this going since the MIGHTY EAGLES handed out a thrashing today. Welcome back to the house of pain fellow punters. Their intensity was good but reckon they need to gel a bit better to get the flowing footy happening. I thought they farted around with it at times but signs are all good. A few to come back from injury should give us some depth. Loved the tackling at hard at the footy paid dividends today. Keep it up boys!

2 posts in 45 weeks, are you a lurker or a contributor? I'm confused.

BTW, this is the general discussion board, pretty much everything non fishing related lives here.

Have to agree with big john, 45 weeks with not so much as a " nice fish mate " but then you take the time to comment on a thread you don't like. I'm confused too !!

I don't like football , so i normaly don't read the threads  but i find the banter quite funny sometimes. Pretty easy just to not open a thread titled " Footy 2014" if your not interested.

Just for the All non Collingwood Supporters

Fri, 2014-03-28 13:52

Why did the Collingwood supporter cross the road?
Centrelink was on the other side



How do you inflict 12 months of acute pain on a Pies supporter?
Buy them a membership for Christmas!


What do u say to a Collingwood supporter with a job?
I'll have fries with that thanks

2 Collingwood Supporters in a car without any music, who is driving?
The Policeman

What do you call a 30 yr old woman in a Collingwood jumper?
Nanna

You are trapped in a room with a crocodile, a tiger and a Collingwood fan. You have a gun with 2 bullets. What do you do?
Shoot the Collingwood fan � Twice


You know you're a Collingwood supporter when:
1. A Halloween pumpkin has more teeth than your wife does.
2. You let your twelve-year-old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids.
3. You've been married three times and still have the same in-laws.
4. Jack Daniel's makes your list of 'most admired people.'
5. You wonder how service stations keep their restrooms so clean.
6. Someone in your family once died right after saying: 'Hey, watch this.'
7. You think Dom Perignon is a Mafia leader.
8. A ceiling fan once ruined your wife's hairdo.
9. You think the last words of Advance Australia Fair are: 'Carn the Maggies .'
10. You lit a match in the bathroom and your house exploded, right off its wheels.
11. The market value of your car goes up and down, depending on how much petrol is in it.
12. You have to go outside to get something from the fridge.
13. One of your kids was born on a pool table.
14. You can't get married to your sweetheart because there's a law against it.
15. You think 'loaded dishwasher' means your wife is drunk.
16. Your toilet paper has page numbers on it.
17. Your front verandah collapses and kills more than five dogs.



What do Collingwood supporters use as protection during sex?
The bus shelter


If you're driving along and you see a Collingwood supporter riding a bike why shouldn't you run him over?
It could be your bike.



Two kids were having a kick in the car park outside the MCG just before a big Carlton and Essendon match. As they were playing a dog came running across and attacked one the of the little kids. The dog was on top of the kids scratching and biting him so his mate who he was having a kick with pick up a stick and started to bash the dog with. Well in the end he belted the dog so hard he actually killed.
A news reporter witnessed this event and came rushing over for an interview. She said to the boy " that was great you just saved your best mates life, this could make a great story."
So the lady started think of headline....
"Carlton Supporter saves best mate from savage dog attack". No said the boy I am not a Carlton supporter.
"Essendon supporter saves best mate from savage dog attack". No said the boy I am not an Essendon supporter either. So the lady asked who he barracked for and he said Collingwood.
The next days headlines where " Low Life Mongrel Maims Family Dog"



Three women with footy-fan husbands are discussing their relationships.
The first says, "My husband follows the Lions and let me tell you our sex life is like one premiership after another."
The second says, "My husband is a Crows man and every night is like the back-to-back victories of 1997 and '98."
They then look at their friend, who hasn't yet said a thing.
"What's wrong," they say as their friend starts sobbing. "Well," she says hesitantly, "my husband supports Collingwood, and all he does is sit on the end of the bed and tell me how wonderful it's going to be."


Why do Collingwood fans stink?
So blind people can hate them, too.


What's got 100 legs and 4 teeth?
The front row of the Collingwood cheer squad.

What is your wife trying to tell you if she's wearing a Collingwood shirt to bed?
You ain't going to score.


A Collingwood couple gets married and are on their honeymoon.
The woman changes into a sexy outfit and lies on the bed. She looks sheepishly up at her new hubby and whispers, "Please be gentle with me. I'm a virgin."
The man gets up screaming, grabs his trousers and runs home to tell his father, who comforts him by saying, "Now, now. It'll be okay, son. If she wasn't good enough for her own family, then she isn't good enough for ours."


A Collingwood supporter went down to Centrelink to claim welfare after realising she was the only one of her friends - (who were all Collingwood supporters) - who was not on benefits.
"How many children do you have?" the man at Centrelink asked.
"Ten," she replied.
"What are their names?"
"Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn and Jaidyn," she replied.
"They're all named Jaidyn?" he asked "What if you want them to come in from playing outside?"
"Oh, that's easy," she said. "I just call 'Jaidyn,' and they all come running in."
"And, if you want them to come to the table for dinner?"
"I just say, 'Jaidyn, come eat your dinner'," she answered.
"But what if you just want ONE of them to do something?" he asked.
"Oh, that's easy," she said. "I just use their last name."


How many Collingwood fans does it take to change a light bulb?
Seven - one to change it, five to moan about it and make
excuses and Mick Malthouse to say that if the umpire had done
his job in the first place the light bulb would never have
gone out

Port Adelaide supporter rang the radio station the other day complaining that an interview with Keith Thomas was going to be just before 5pm when most supporters would not be able to listen.

Fri, 2014-03-28 14:25

A Collingwood girl walks into the local dry cleaners.
She places a garment on the counter. "I'll be back tomorrow afternoon to pick up my dress." she says.
"Come again?" says the worker, cupping his ear.
"No" she replies. "This time it's mayonnaise."

Collingwood must be of a lot of interest to you because you have done heaps of research and only bothered to put the made up stuff down, try putting down , the richest club, most membership numbers and so on,

I think you must be related to Paully and have secret desires to be a Magpies supporter but won't admit it because your mates will give you shit.

Yep, lucky to get the 4 points, undergunned but knew the Bombers were going to be tough. Enjoyed the first half then the Dons killed us in the 3rd. Credit due tho, still found a way to fight back and snatch the game, woke the house up (had to watch taped game later on) when Hilly handballed to the loose Cyril and he slotted it through woohoo, though we were gone for sure. Be good to get a few players back next week for an easier game   Bombers will be tough this year under Thompson, Bomber fans gota be lovin Chappy, hes thrivin there so far, has had a big impact

Sat, 2014-03-29 20:55

 Any team who spends 10 million on an aging player heavily weighted at the back end of the contract is asking for trouble...

On the other hand I think collingwood traded much smarter than tonight's opponent and will benefit much sooner.  I did rate sydney.  I think they have made some big mistakes.  Mumford starring for GWS, buddy struggling, talks of rifts between players...  losing my respect and their results reflect it.

Doesnt appear that anyone rates Sydney at this point. Only two rounds in, write them off at your peril etc etc but they have been very average. Poor midfield, baffling coaching (leaving Maxwell alone for starters....)  Didn't think the Pies were all that flash but 4 points is 4 points.

Sat, 2014-03-29 21:16

 And sydney dont have any points, neither do carlton...  teams that finish top four lose 4-5 games a year... anything more is generally bottom half of the top eight and history shows only one team has won a premiership from there.  Sydney has to win basically every game from here on in to consolidate a top two or top four position.   So far they have lost to last year's wooden spooners (???) and a team snashed by 70 points last round.

No, I dont rate them, at the moment.

 As much as I love our side handing out a shlacking like that I think it's a complete joke and cheapens the elite comp. If sides can't put in a competetive effort then they should be relegated or cut out of the comp some how. That'not footy it's a training run but since all sides will get a crack at them I'll take the 4 points and the percentage.

Sun, 2014-03-30 19:39

Same here, I enjoyed the first quarter or so, but then watched NHRA qualifying as it's hard to watch the footy when the difference between some of the sides is so large, it can get a little boring, especially for the players.

Randell mentioned that only one team has won the GF from outside the top 4, (Adelaide in the '90's I think) but I think that record will be broken repeatedly over the coming seasons with the quality of the entire 8, let alone the teams that miss out.

We are going better and looking good, but it's early on and proof will be once we have played Freo, Geelong, hawks, Port,  Essendon etc. Hopefully we improve on last year......by about 14 positions would be nice!

or in my case hear. I was driving in the first quarter and planning to watch when I got home. Never bothered after getting there.

I love a win like everyone else, but a slaughter is a shame for the game.

I dont know what melbourne is going to do. Simply you cant treat on "established" team differently to the rest, or everyone else will cry unfair etc.

And Daisy I am certain we will do better than last year. Predicted 4th, but looking forward to Rd 7. If and I mean if we get over Freo anything might be possible, as I believe they are the yard stick at the moment.

Mon, 2014-03-31 12:06

at all, but its a shame for the game when one team (or more) are easy beats. GCS are improving as you would have expected, and I suspect they will be up there. GWS also after the Sydney win wont be underestimated. It will almost become with melbourne that you can notch that 4 points up. I hope not.

When you draft athletes, not

Mon, 2014-03-31 16:27

When you draft athletes, not footballers, this is what happens. Melbournes 'elite' couldn't even hit a target with hand or foot for the majority of the game. I used to feel for Tattoo Jones,p as he plays with heart, but he was as guilty of basic skill errors as the rest of the useless first round draft picks. At least Dawes will be back soon! Ha!

It's a shame we can't relegate the bottom teams somehow.

On another note though, I reckon lower tiered top 8 sides will start winning the cup in the next few years with the amount of quality sides up there. Subtle changes like the interchange cap will not allow the amount of rest periods experienced in the past. Rest times need to be coached out with the players still on the fielding accountable which makes a huge difference to recovery times, thus game structure.

I think its a good thing

 But round 7 is going to be interesting. I wouldn't be telling the truth if i said i wasn't a little bit concerned.

 It might be back to those hard close games of awhile ago.

Good stuff but you would think FFC with the oldest list in the comp [ can't believe that but apparently its true ] should have your mobs measure. 

Weegs may need a season or so to learn a game plan to beat the top teams me thinks

Shit if WC won that it would cause a shuffle in the flag favorite betting

April fools not until tomorrow Unc .. keep on dreaming though .

 
Only one game on this coming weekend and it’s more of a test for the hawks because they aren’t looking overly convincing two games in . Hopefully they don’t fall to pieces early like the collywobbles and actually make a game of it .

Mon, 2014-03-31 16:38

If you choose to bump and not tackle and there is a head clash you are deamed responsible. Now I agree protect the head. But a suspense????

 Compare fyfe to carey?

Mon, 2014-03-31 16:51

 Compare fyfe to carey?  There is no comparison.  Fyfe has integrity, carey hasnt.  Fyfe isn't a criminal nor a drug addict.  And the only time I saw carey play, jacko pantsed him, so I question his talent as well.  If fyfe gets rubbed out for that its a disgrace.  If they have changed the rules to outlaw that situation the game has become netball.  Feet on the ground and elbow tucked in.  Initial contact was all body on body.

Dawson on the other hand deserves his week off.

King Nat Fyfe , I like it .. Dunno if he’d be game enough to tackle Pav’s mrs though lol.. No comparison , Carey was a completely different player and is a established champion CHF and Fyfe’s a more versatile midfielder and has the makings of a champion and in time his consistency will determine that .

Mon, 2014-03-31 17:03

 What astounds me is that an umpire must be watching because the play is in the process of kicking.  No free kick, no report.  ????  None of commentators say "fyfe will be in trouble for that!"  So everyone thinks its fair... play on....

 

 And yes I am cranky with it.  Before you all have a go, consider if it was a pendlebury, or a selwood, or an ablett, or a dangerfield, what would you be feeling if it was one of your best players?

You HAVE lost it.

Pendles is a gun, inside and out. Apart from the premiership medal uncle, pendles also performed in his GF, hence his Norm Smith medal. What's Fyfe got, besides a gay hairdo?

Mon, 2014-03-31 19:28

 Hey how old is pendlebury?  Fyfe is 23.  Still has lots of opportunity to do as much and more than pendlebury.

 

I acknowledged that pendlebury is very skilled.  And I am probably as guilty as the entire east coast media when they try to pass comment about wa players in that I dont see enough of him.  He just seems to me to hang outside and let others do the hard grind.  I know he's effective, he cops crowleys tag ...  and thats a compliment. ;)

 Yep almost as embarrassing as your entire teams performance in round one.  Fyfe beat you in three quarters and knocked off early.  Collingwood were the joke that night.  Just as they were with their early exit from the 2013 finals.  Thats funny stuff.  I kid getting syspended for playing fair, hard football isn't.  I've got no issue with suspensions when they're justified (dawson's is justified).  But Fyfe's is a joke.

Digging

Mon, 2014-03-31 19:54

Keep digging Randall, in one evening you've accused Carey of having no talent and Pendlebury of being a seagull.

You are a clown.

You bang on about having the greatest coach in the known universes (4 GF's, never saluted), if he's that good, why hasn't he instructed his players on the new head high contact rule? Fyfe chose to bump when he could have tackled or smothered. DUMB!

Why can't be downgrade it to one week with a guilty plea, because he has a poor record, again, DUMB!

Collingwood players, bikies and guns, dumb

Collingwood players, three times the legal limits, dumb

And freo have had their fair share of dumbness too.

Pendlebury as I have said is talented. Contested? Well good on him.  As I say I only every watch when he plays freo and criwley goes to him.  Bottom line is the kast couple of tines we've played you we've smashed you.  So I sleep well.  Catch us if you can. Beep beep.
