I remember vaguely with my old brain now many years ago the blues were accused of tanking. Problem is we have been tanking ever since.
Is it really tanking if it goes on for decades.

Barney, the tanking you refer to was when Carlton and Essendon were playing the last round of the season and whoever lost the game got the 1st round draft pick which incidentally was Bryce Gibbs. Both teams were desperate to secure his services and ultimately the game was referred to as the Bryce Gibbs Cup. The irony was that they drew the game and as Carlton had a worse percentage, they secured his services.

Before Decimal Currency , as Honorable Melb teams would never " Tank " except those magpies who secured Mike Hunt

Well a HUGE win at Geelong, first in many years

It was a must win this week , and grabbed a few % to go with it,

I think all at Sports Bar tonight agree the final 8 is going to go down to the wire, with the last round of home and away and even down to % perhaps

Arrived back in Udon today, too late to jump on the gravy train.

Went straight to Villa and try to order 2 huge Humble Pies.

Closest they had were apple pies , so grabbed them, as we might sneak into the finals.

HUGE win and got another 6% added, which is going to help in the next 2 rounds.

12 from last 14 games ..... ahhhhhh

Adelaide in Adelaide, Media already pumping it as a prelim to a final

That other Sydney mob (the plastic one) might have something to say about what happens when the real stuff starts too Wazza - looks to be a race in two - with the Swannies waiting to pounce if either of the top two flinch. They were pretty good last night but alas the bruise free dogs didn't offer much opposition. Amazing game - we had over 30 more inside 50's and got flogged. Looks like I won't have to worry about finding a tv in the back blocks of Roi Et come September.

No worries Wazza. Will be in Udon for the first weekend of the finals and maybe the second if I can wangle it. Staying at the Pannarai as there are 7 of us all up but thanks for the offer. Am looking forward to catching up for a chat with yourself a few of the UM lads and the stumble from the Sports Bar to the Pannarai is perfect.
