The Almanackery (taken at the Melbourne launch)

The launch of The Footy Almanac 2014 went well. More on that on Monday after I get back from Minyip. Yes, Minyip.

The Melbourne Almanackery (including travellers like Joe Moore from Tassie, Tom Bally from Sydney et al)

  1. BIAS – not enough Geelong jumpers.

  2. G’day John,

    Thanks for posting the photo. I hope I will be in the photo next year. I’m glad to hear that you had a great night at the Launch.

    Cheers :)

    I’m disappointed I could not make it at the last minute as the photo would look so much better with some purple!!
    Hope everyone had a great night.
    cheers Di

    Note to self – ‘I’m too short to stand in the back row’

  5. Neil Anderson says

    Note to self-‘When the ball is bounced and the photo-shoot is on, go hard to the front of the pack and get involved early. No-one likes a receiver on the edge of the action.’
    Thanks to back-up photographer Yvette and some extra shots taken, there was proof I was actually there.
    A great night had by all.

  6. That is an excellent photo.

  7. Great photo and a great night. Glad I was lucky enough to be in town. And thanks for the shout out during your speech JTH – made it much easier to meet people that I have met on the site.
