  1. Peter Fuller says

    The demands of brevity mean that you have possibly denied the Bulldogs some of the merit of their performance. They had come from an early deficit of three goals, to be on top, more than two goals in front close to three-quarter time, when they were hauled in. Then their last quarter surge seemed to see them home, 20 points up, and a gettable miss which should have made the margin 25. Collingwood reeled them in again to just a single point, before Tutt’s goal in the final minute secured the win.
    When you effectively have to win the contest three times, that’s a sterling effort – especially by a team that has been notoriously flaky.

  2. Dear Mr Harms – re Eagles – F U.

    After some bitter experience with undocumented instructions for the exigencies of eternity, I’ve kept my family up-to-date with my current thinking for a headstone. Well you can’t be too careful.

    Anyway, after a couple of years of “Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime” (which, I confess, may have people checking back every Easter Sunday to see if my stone had been rolled away), you have inspired a change, Mr Harms.

    For who can abide the Eagles?

  5. Thanks Harms. I expected better from you, but see what you started. The peasants are revolting again.
