  1. No norman please. Cotric to FB croker to wing Austin to centre whighton to Mounties. Nuf said.
    I’m sure Josh dugan had a mate that invented a time machine and and travelled to the movie set of “John woo’s face off” and placed himself on the operating table and swapped faces with Josh so as to create a replicant of doogs so he could travel back in time to right the wrongs he did. Only prob was doogs escaped and returned to raiders as the now known Jack whighton and is the worst fullback ever and running amok, where the real Jack whighton is at sharks and is actually saying out of trouble. Only problem is that the time nerds real name is Mr Glass and was never built to play top grade

    Wednesday. No footy so I have to keep my mind occupied.
