    Aussie Rules Football

    Preseason is already underway.

    1 thing I love about preseason, is that you can start slowly getting excited about footy starting again....

    1 thing I hate about preseason is they like to fuck around with things....

    eg:

    Aurora changing shape

    Adam Smith | February 18, 2009 03:05pm



    • AURORA Stadium will be altered for Saturday's clash between Hawthorn and Melbourne to produce a more exciting game.
    Last year David Parkin criticised the size of the ground, which has often produced low-scoring affairs due to teams getting stuck in expansive wings and pockets when the opposition pushed numbers behind the ball.

    One wing has been reduced in an effort to promote a free-flowing game, with the ground dimensions now resembling Melbourne's Telstra Dome, The Mercury reports.

    Ground manager Robert Groenewegen said the AFL did not pressure to make the changes, and the Hawks were consulted about the decision last October.

    "What happened was the outer-side of the ground was 13 metres wider than the Gunns Stand side of the ground," Groenewegen said yesterday.<
    Of the 28 home and away matches played at the venue, only 11 times has a team passed the 100 point barrier and on just one occasion -- when the Hawks defeated Port Adelaide last year -- have both teams reached three figures.

    The highest score posted in Launceston also goes to the Power, 17.15 (117) back in 2002.

    I think the 'pies will be too good.
    Agree about September, you have to pick Geelong but hot favorites have missed the final 8 before.

    News

    Blues explode into '09 at Tigers' expense


    CARLTON has started the 2009 season on a formidable note, thrashing Richmond by 83 points in front of a near-capacity crowd at the MCG on Thursday night.
    The build-up to the match, largely centred around the return to elite-level football of Tiger recruit Ben Cousins, reached fever pitch.
    And it took a very cruel tumble early in the fourth quarter when the Brownlow Medallist hobbled from the field with what looked to be a serious hamstring tear.
    Consider too that it was Cousins' former West Coast captain, now Carlton skipper, Chris Judd who had close to the greatest impact on the 23.12 (150) to 9.13 (67) result.
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: "A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.

    Billy was at school this morning and the teacher asked all the children
    What their fathers did for a living.
    All the typical answers came out: fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.
    However, Billy was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher
    asked him about his father ..
    Billy responded: "My father is an exotic dancer in a gay club and takes
    off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes if the offer is
    really good, he'll go out with a man, rent a cheap hotel room and let
    them sleep with him."
    The teacher quickly sent the other children outside with some work and
    took little Billy aside to ask him if what he'd said was really true.
    "No" said Billy ,"He plays AFL football for the Collingwood Football
    Club but I was just too embarrassed to say ..."


    You know you're a Collingwood supporter when:
    1. A Halloween pumpkin has more teeth than your wife does.
    2. You let your twelve-year-old daughter smoke at the dinner table in
    front of her kids.
    3. You've been married three times and still have the same in-laws.
    4. Jack Daniel's makes your list of 'most admired people.'
    5. You wonder how service stations keep their restrooms so clean.
    6. Someone in your family once died right after saying: 'Hey, watch
    this.'
    7. You think Dom Perignon is a Mafia leader.
    8. A ceiling fan once ruined your wife's hairdo.
    9. You think the last words of Advance Australia Fair are: 'Carn the
    Maggies .'
    10. You lit a match in the bathroom and your house exploded, right off
    its wheels.
    11. The market value of your car goes up and down, depending on how much
    petrol is in it.
    12. You have to go outside to get something from the fridge.
    13. One of your kids was born on a pool table.
    14. You can't get married to your sweetheart because there's a law
    against it.

    They found one of Josef Fritzl's daughter's diary from the infamous
    Austrian "lock-up" case just last weekend. It read:
    Monday - locked up at home, raped by Dad
    Tuesday - locked up at home, raped by Dad
    Wednesday - locked up at home, raped by Dad
    Thursday - locked up at home, raped by Dad
    Friday - locked up at home, raped by Dad
    Saturday - went to go watch Collingwood play. Wished I stayed at home.




    Three women with footy-fan husbands are discussing their relationships.
    The first says, "My husband follows the Lions and let me tell you our
    sex life is like one premiership after another."
    The second says, "My husband is a Crows man and every night is like the
    back-to-back victories of 1997 and '98."
    They then look at their friend, who hasn't yet said a thing.
    "What's wrong," they say as their friend starts sobbing. "Well," she
    says hesitantly, "my husband supports Collingwood, and all he does is
    sit on the end of the bed and tell me how wonderful it's going to be."


    Why do Collingwood fans stink?
    So blind people can hate them, too.

    A Collingwood couple gets married and are on their honeymoon.
    The woman changes into a sexy outfit and lies on the bed. She looks
    sheepishly up at her new hubby and whispers, "Please be gentle with me.
    I'm a virgin."
    The man gets up screaming, grabs his trousers and runs home to tell his
    father, who comforts him by saying, "Now, now. It'll be okay, son. If
    she wasn't good enough for her own family, then she isn't good enough
    for ours."


    A Collingwood supporter went down to Centrelink to claim welfare after
    realising she was the only one of her friends - (who were all
    Collingwood supporters) - who was not on benefits.
    "How many children do you have?" the man at Centrelink asked.
    "Ten," she replied.
    "What are their names?"
    "Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn, Jaidyn
    and Jaidyn," she replied.
    "They're all named Jaidyn?" he asked "What if you want them to come in
    from playing outside?"
    "Oh, that's easy," she said. "I just call 'Jaidyn,' and they all come
    running in."
    "And, if you want them to come to the table for dinner?"
    "I just say, 'Jaidyn, come eat your dinner'," she answered.
    "But what if you just want ONE of them to do something?" he asked.
    "Oh, that's easy," she said. "I just use their last name."


    How many Collingwood fans does it take to change a light bulb?
    Seven - one to change it, five to moan about it and make
    excuses and Mick Malthouse to say that if the umpire had done
    his job in the first place the light bulb would never have
    gone out

    A man enters a bar and orders a drink. The bar has a robot bartender.
    The robot serves him a perfectly prepared cocktail, and then asks him,
    "What's your IQ?"
    The man replies, "150", and the robot proceeds to make conversation
    about global warming, factors, quantum physics and spirituality,
    biomimicry, environmental interconnectedness, string theory,
    nano-technology, and sexual proclivities.
    The customer is very impressed and thinks, "This is really cool.", and
    decides to test the robot. He walks out of the bar, turns around, and
    comes back in for another drink.
    Again, the robot serves him the perfectly prepared drink and asks him,
    "What's your IQ?"
    "About a 100," the man responds.
    Immediately the robot starts talking, but this time about football, the
    Bathurst 1000, cricket, supermodels, favorite fast foods, guns, and the
    like.
    Really impressed, the man leaves then walks in again.
    "What's your IQ?" the robot asks.
    "Er, 50, I think."
    And the robot responds, very, very slowly, "So, I expect you'll be
    following Collingwood again this year?"
