What do you do Mr Fj that takes you to ummm seemingly backwards countries? Most of the Thai women i know would have loved to have joined you in Turkey with temps around zero...they would have liked to snuggle up in the tent with you...

 

I'm in the engineering field Alex,basically helping those with a machete and hoe background to open a toolbox and use the right tools for the job.

I have a hand me down Note3 from the wifey witch i use when away to check emails,its most important feature is the alarm clock.

Feeling quite confident about the Kangas next year after reading we have the easiest drawn going around,i guess that means playing the Dees twice again,as well as all the bottom 8 clubs.

I'll get the champers out for the 2018 bolters.:smile:

Was game 1 of the international rules worth watching?

Port will be the new North Melbourne after recruiting Demon discards and an ageing pussy Cat, the roomer mill is working overtime the hot to trot Tom bro of Paddy is that the Roos and Saints are just itching to snare him in the second round, im thinking he will go in the 4th round and lets face it theres been some good cheap pick ups especially by the Eagles all those years ago when they on start up had some kids hidden way up in death valley somewhere out of eye sight from there eastern rivals....now with every body equiped with a smart phone that just cant happen anymore, take Mick Johnson at 3 am at a kabab takeaway dropped his pants...there was someone there to record it...Mick could have brought 2 IphoneX for the cost of the exercise at 3 am...

 

Ps....more on Italy and there showdown against Sweden the Italian's are in crisis mode you thought i was joking when i said Fiat and the like could die...there will be riots if the Italians miss out they havent missed a world cup since 1958 the year Sofia Loren appeared on the screen..she would have stoped a tank in those days...yes if your pasta machine breaks down your going to have to get a new one from China and lets not forget your expresso maker too.....

The basketball referees would wear their away strip in Collingwood games to avoid a clash of uniforms.   Eddie MCG says so.

Ty Vickery has announced his retirement after just one year with the Hawks, 6 games, says he has lot the passion to play, might have more to do with his shonkey ex business partner and the fact Jake king is now up on charges for threat to kill over an alleged extortion attempt...

 

Had the time to pop in and check out the new IphoneX today....im so underwhelmed i dont know what the fuss is about....it worked beautifully of course but what did it look like? Granted Vodahone's display model did look unappealing i always prefer silver and white, there model was black with a white back, maybe i need to check out the color range before i give it a thumbs down but it sure looks cheap to me, gee's im glad i upgraded last year...

 

The fall out of the national Italian Soccer team that failed to qualify for the  world cup has plunged Italy into a national existential crisis....and you thought i was joking....you would not want to be italian right now...i can see my dear old dad give a cheeky smile from his grave...they cultural commentators said the result reflected the failure of Italian society to move forward.....Some politicians blamed immigration...

 

As Italian websites exploded with Ikea-inspired Sweden jokes, including step-by-step instructions for Italians on how to make a "göl," some politicians tried to exploit the frustration.

"Too many foreigners on the field," Matteo Salvini, the leader of the anti-immigrant Northern League, wrote on Twitter. "#StopInvasion, and more space for Italian guys, also on the soccer field."

Financial analysts projected a loss of revenue to the national team of 100 million euros, because of the failure to qualify for the World Cup.

"There will be economic consequences to this defeat," Elisa Simoni, a left-leaning member of Parliament, told the news channel Sky TG24.

Others suggested that Italy's victory at the World Cup in 2006 had contributed to a spike in employment and in the country's gross domestic product.

Those days now seem far away.

In a video, Alessandro Vocalelli, the editor of Corriere dello Sport, said that the failure would create a new description for national humiliation: "It was 'a Sweden.'" The failure to qualify, he said, was "a national shame without precedent".

He added, with a statement characteristic of the day, that "entire generations have never known this tragic experience..

 

Well its the Aussies turn tonight tune at 8pm east cost time a win is a loss because we should never have been in this position to begin with a loss would be a national disgrace and Ange better have that job in China because he will be stoned if he hangs around here, the only place he would be safe is with the fellas out in the central desert regions of Australia...Fortress Australia one news paper is bragging claim we have been virtually unbeatable, the FAA have spend a small fortune on there athletes because it means millions to us to go to Russia, tonights game should be the last of Ange Postecoglou, becoming known for is unrealistic visions playing around with formations did it at Victory now doing it with the national team...he wont last long in China the $$$$ there throwing around means they expect instant success....

Joel Selwood really is one of the protected species.  He really should be going before the match review panel for his hit in the international rules game last night and looking at a couple of weeks on the sideline next year.

 

 Joel Selwood sent off for high hit in International Rules test, sparks brawl between Australia and Ireland.

D day approaching.....ahh to keep us interested the AFL stretches it out so they cant be forgotten, here in football heartland cricket and tennis will never take over even in summer...

 

So we beggin...i missed the first part but the most important team is in the second part so its ok....

 

The Dee's apparently are loaded with inside bull mids so they say picks 29,31,36 and 57, they also state the Dee's have done the hard yards in the Draft in recent years stocking up on some impressive kids whats needed is some blistering speed from a few new mids...another Italian Stallion has been pin pointed for us by the Age team in Jack Petrucelle, has pace to burn, Stoddart and Bailey as well who are all expected to fall in the second or third rounds where the Dee's have a wealth of pics...Dee's also have been eyeing off a one Osker Baker from the Lions academy...meanwhile there also tipping they may top up with a mature age rookie ruck after the delisting of Jake Spencer.....What i know is these guys are hardly ever right once you move past the 3rd pick in the draft...but hey it makes your mouth water itching for a late march action...

 

Hawks ravaged and savaged and behind the 8 ball O'Mera hasn't worked out Tye retired and no early pics, there midfield needs depth what surprised me this family club has decided against nominating for Brearton and Langfords sons....if these kids were just half as good as there dads you could back the Hawks in for the next 10 years...

 

Kangaroos...after throwing everything including a solid gold kitchen sink at Josh Kelly and Dusty Martin  and came up nude then proceeded to delist a further raft of experienced players held there nerve during trade week, not much point going after experience if your not attracting anyone, opportunities will be plenty, they start with pick 4 and long being linked to Jaidyn Stepherson, also on the radar is Andy Brayshaw were pop played and uncle was chairman...

 

Port went crazy at the supermarket picking up a few dregs and a highly respect Rockcliff, all will be brought undone come september when they falter once more, there first pick will be 46, improvement will need to come from within as there is little rocket fuel in the tank apart for Rocketcliff...

 

Tigers pick 17 sitting pretty dont have to prove a thing, im tipping the tigers will do a 1980 and revert back to gonna bees the hangover will continue all year which will delight Melbourne newspapers as its worth a whole page 3 times a week with whats happened plus a surgical player by player analysis concluding whats needed etc etc...Anyway they have 3 picks in the top 25 it could also mean they will actually build a further solid base and stay in contention.

 

Ahh the team that is going to be but never quite gets there the Saints, 7,8 34 and 45....ummm 2 inside the top 10 another Paddy? The brother Tom is available Chooks...With a blue collar mid are looking for some inside grunt several classy kids in the draft have been mentioned one from seaford just around the corner from there training base is high on the watch list....already coming off 2 knee reconstructions...warning warning WILL Robinson....

 

Swans 14, 33, 51 and 84....i mean at 84 what can you get? a box of empty rice bubbles is what you get....seems they need tall forwards well they dont come ready made and i do believe Jack Watts would have been excellent for the Swans who have a good record of bring out the best in people, the Swans dont need much just a bit if dazzle here and some star dust there and there all ready to go....

 

WCE...new emblem alone will add some much spirited fight 13, 21, 26, 32, 37, 69, 83....will be battling with the Dee's for a raft of half decent mids 83 will be an empty packet of pop corn, topping up didnt work so its back to the draft, Eagle eyes are on Victorian gun turned something to mid Hunter Clark with a name like that he could not have originated from Vic...Oscar Allen is also being eyed off....my god Hunter, Oscar sound like something from a adult movie...wpont ay the type....

 

In the news today Johnny Barnes is leading a push to sue the AFL with relations to the effects of concussion post retirement, seems life is going downwards for him the former Cat and Bomber was 

 diagnosed with epilepsy five years ago and has experienced increased memory loss and anger issues. The 48-year-old believes all of those conditions could be linked to his playing days.

"It's turned my life upside down ... I'm not the same bloke I used to be," Barnes said.

 

"I know things are changing in my mind and I want answers." 3 broken jaws an concused at least half a dozen times...Leads to an interesting time...in the USA a former Gridiron player who committed sucide in prison after found guilty of murder was found to have jelly for a brain that far excedded his age...still in his 20's and a top line player they now think that rattling affect of all those tackles lead to his demise...what to do what to do?

 

Amazon has a soft launch in Australia...who cares?  not me....though easy credit and the ease of shopping online.....well sim sala bin...

 

Fj's boy Glen in that never ending merry go round of punching the ump was it? no it was the runner at his sons footy game mid season will appeal his conviction and why not? if the conviction stands he would have to step down from the board...at the kangaroos, the excuse is he received bad legal advice....

 

Nic made it to early pre season training...and who was saying he'd be ready by mid season last year? who thought he would have an impact during the finals? wasn't me, lot of ham and cheese there another empty packet of corn flakes very few get back quickly from an injury like his ....

 

Us puritans can rest in peace....the AFL in there infinite wisdom WILL keep the bounce down until a wet winter changes everything again....

 

No more news on the Apple iPhone X but....3 or is it the 4th update has my phone almost normal again...not that nokia owners care....or owners of second hand broken down tabs would even want to know about...no murmurings from Fj and there was a report of a missile launch from some desert deep in Thailands north heading kinda NE a Chinese super duper jet intercepted it...

 

Well the Socceroos fell over the line and qualified for the world cup...means millions of course...the Italians fell out and there will be a lot of cheap italian cars for sale from now on...not wise to buy one as spare parts will  be made in North Korea...and you know...Trump is itching to invade...so the parts cost will X10 ....Ange gave us the relief and retired thank god, got to big for his job though i did notice he went back to a 4 man defence in the last few games...i rest my case..
