Berliners were the best!

He also kicked a goal from behind the muddy west wing at the Parade against Sturt in the early 70’s. His timing was Gower-like.

You paid for ya petrol 😱

Noel Pettingill had the most prodigious drop kick.

SA grew half of Australia’s wheat before WW1. The Irish in the Eastern States were lazy and they had the best selection. But the Germans made the best of what little arable land there was in SA.

They then locked up all the German-only speakers in 1915. Wheat production collapsed and we had to import wheat uptil 1923 in a big way.

You can always bet on SA for being known by the things that they actually don’t do

I tried bowling left-handed once. I felt like the frog in the blender bloke; Paul Adams?

Yes, batting averages have stayed stable since 1920. Why does it matter?

They’re wide enough.

It’s a gaff. Never attribute to malice what can be readily attributed to stupidity

… and Brayshaw has been quite considerate of SA. So I wonder why they were being Melbourne-centric.
I’m sure the 3rd Time Zone of the USA feels the same way about the Eastern ½ of the country.

… or maybe Melbourne put on a clinic for why they were deserving winners.

He’s a party trying to find out why he’s a celebrity

The newish century is righting a few wounds. Lions / Fitzroy, Swans, Cats, Dogs, Tiges and now Dee’s. Saints still holding the bouquet.
Bad luck for the Dogs they ran into Melbourne’s Purplest Patch for the year.

What happened to some Perth residents in that some are now as arrogant as Eastern States which are not to be confused with the Central or Western zones.

We invented the stump jump plough, the hills hoist, the rubber thong, built the first car in Australia, had Torrens Titles from the get-go, Balfour’s Frogs, proper pasties, the best cakes, consumer law’s, made the first successful trek north n south.

In Australian Football we pioneered the “Checkside Kick” and the “Quik-Give” handball (which has never flouted the rules).

Yeah, thanks, that’s what I meant.

I’m probably wrong on Nicks. I just can’t help feel that in his interviews he lacks some passion.

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

The Germans are way more invisibleinvisible than the English. Don’t forget may Germans anglicised their names as did we Australia.

I’ve followed this debate for decades now as History is one of my obsessions. If you don’t like this one I have others 😂 😂 😂

And how many would know that from 1900 more Germans had settled in Qld than SA?

And some Kiwis are just dirty. Ask Ken Catchpole and the guy who wore Richard Loe-down’s elbow.

Who gives a toss? Part 2: When sending Australia in backfired spectacularly

And Perth has a lot of Saffies, Rhodesian and Kiwis. So go figure. In the late 70s a few escaping the change to Zimbabwe brought 404 Peugeot utes with the high canopy. The rule was what you could fit in the car you could take in belongings. A few made their way to Australia.

And along with bowlers not being allowed to switch-bowl whilst the batters are allowed to switch-hit. HUH?

I never want to see another All-Victorian GF ever again. I will allow the Saints in for a go every so often but that’s it.

I can’t help but maintaining the rage. I know we’re spise to be eating hungry and singing Kumbaya and all that but somethings should never be compromised.

Autocorrect rendered franca as France; mensch.

And a little known fact is that the first white people to settle in SA were from the USA. Even some approximate 35 years before the State’s Proclamation.

I’ve found you to be 84% better than some. Me? I’m just grinning that an “old love” has done well.
