About John Mosig

I'm an Aussie Rules tragic who can remember, as a four year old, shaking the hand of Captain Blood in the rooms just before he ran out onto the ground after half time, as my Old Man slipped him a packet of under-the-counter Craven A cork tipped. Now it's my turn to take my grandson Ben through the ritual of character building that is the journey through PUNT ROAD to the outside world.


  1. What’s that big black hole near his throat? The post box slot for the wads of cash?

  2. Dips,

    if a decent person like you says grumpy things like that just, imagine what those Pies will say when Pendles goes to Sydney.

    He’s the one who will go.

  3. John Mosig says

    How sure are you that Phanto?

  4. Phantoms know these things.

  5. Phantom – now the Blues want Laidler – bastards. We train them and coach them, and the others steel ’em.

    But let him go if he wants to go, the Blues won’t win a flag this side of the desalination plant becoming profitable.Circa 2059.

  6. OK, what about Nathan Foley to Bomberland Phanto – what do you know about that?

  7. # “steal” even

  8. John Butler says

    Now now Dips.

    Early in the week to be getting cranky.

  9. Geelong has been a pretty successful club throughout Gazza’s career and while he was a major contributor to that success there were many others involved. I wonder if he will find the “fun” in footy when the Suns are anchored in the bottom three for at least a couple of years.

    While Ablett himself is brilliant and Bock, Brown, Rischitelli and Harbrow are pretty good, Fraser was good before his body went and Brennan plays really well every fourth or fifth game they are a long way short of having the personel of even a tenth or eleventh team. Even if their kids like Swallow and Toy develop as quickly as Joel Sellwood and Steele Sidebottom did (and they won’t because part of the speed of these players’ development was due to the quality of their teammates) even then the Suns still won’t have the cattle.

    I don’t hold any grudges about Ablett’s departure (and yes Phanto I would go berko if Pendles went to GWS but it’s not going to happen) I do find the Courier Mail article obnoxious. Have fun in the cellar, Gary!

  10. I think Pendles is the one Sheedy is after Dave. It’s unfortunately the price you pay for winning a flag.

    GWS will certainly pick your (and others) eyes out. Rules is rules.
