    K-Rock, according to the end of the video.

    Needed a 50m line, IMO.

    I don't think either of the two Queensland teams are destined to fail, but you have to wonder how much of the AFL's territorial gains in Queensland will be offset if they let the Lions turn into a basketcase. Their drafting has been pretty good though, hopefully they unearth a couple more blokes that way this year instead of trying to trade their way to success. Actually, I was just thinking that Voss' recruiting reminds me of Eric Cartman trying to get his money back from Scott Tenorman after buying his pubes.

    Alright alright. I'll trade you my pubes back for the money.
    You will? Oh, cool!
    How much did I charge? Uh, oh yeah. Ten dollars. You got change for a twenty?
    Oh. Uh, let' see. I only got six dollars and twelve cents.
    Oh. well... that's okay. Here. Just... give me the six dollars. And then I'll... give you the twenty.
    ...Okay.
    Now, give me the pubes, and I'll give you back two dollars.
    Right.
    Now, give me the twelve cents, and I'll give you the rest of your change back.
    Cool.
    And then give me the twenty, and I'll give you the pubes.
    Sweet!


    FTR, X Clarke = the pubes.
    Do you think that was because he such a good offer from the Suns, or because last year he was offered as trade bait to Carlton?

    The second one probably kicked it off, the first one sealed the deal.

    That was actually my first reaction tbh - high fives all around at Lions HQ.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Was wondering, but reckon they'd hesitate at actually making a complaint with police - there could be consequences beyond bad press if they did so and it came unstuck. Does highlight how disastrously bad a decision it was by the Lions to contract him for so much.

    Yeah I don't think they would have orchestrated the situation, but the lack of action to Fev's defence is almost palpable.

    Also, Fev trade still not as bad as the Stephen O'Reilly trade.

    Getting Fev wasn't that bad a move, still, IMO. Just that the economic part of it seems to have been really badly managed. Whoever is in charge of list management made an enormous stuff up, funnily enough was probably their first decision after taking over from Gubby Allen, who left last year for GWS.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    They've managed the contract poorly, but you can't be too harsh purely from a playing perspective. You can't predict a player will have injuries when they're someone who doesn't suffer from chronic injuries, like a Jesse W Smith.

    Really bloody nervous about tonight, reckon the Dockers are a big show. Thinking about putting some money on them, so that at least I get some sort of benefit if we lose.

    Weather in Melbourne aws?

    If fine, Geelong will win by 70+. This is a mismatch without Sandilands being able to play his usual ruck role.
