Well here we are its grand final day and it marks the end of another season and I thought I would just reflect o n seasons gone by 

I miss the old times of when you would have the old backyard Barbie with the family and selected mates and get half cut before the 3 o'clock kickoff 

When beer was full flavoured and full of hops .not the chemical made crap of today .AHH give me the old KB or DA any day 

When all this climate change talk was not an issue and people did not push their beliefs down  each other's throats one way or the other

When the warm and fuzzy brigade did not get their knickers in a Knott when some of us have said we dont go for female commentators or female Refs and touch judges .AHH bring Back Frank Hyde Rexy Ferris Ashton Alan Clackson .Hollywood Hartley .that tall cheating bastard from up north that used to referee the state of origin the grasshopper Gomersal .Ahh  the good old day's. But in saying all that I'll still watch the game tonight .just hope that its a good game .WHO to win dont really care as i dont go much on either team .just good luck to both teams and may the best team wins on its own merits and with out to much controversy and finally i just wish everbody and their family's a safe and happy grand final Day .but i still miss the good old days

  • Some of the things I miss about the good old days.

    Girls didn’t have tattoos and never ever said f**k.

    I miss cruising with the missus and sitting on the deck sipping on a flurry duck.

    I miss being incredibly handsome.

    I miss doing my arse on the Indian Dreaming poker machine  

    I miss playing footy but I don’t miss training.

    I miss not bothering about funeral insurance.

    But most of all I miss Supermaneel things are not as much fun without his clever and witty comments.


    • I miss cheap Resch's schooners at the pub and I miss Israel Folau religious posts on One Eyed Eel........NOT.

    • Well that’s a pretty fair assessment their twin they were good times hey

  • Those were the days Wongy - back when there were at least half a dozen hot dog vendors outside the ground flogging doggies from those stainless steel contraptions - 50 cents extra for cheese.

    Winfield Cup - Making The Big Game Bigger.

    Check out this photo of a packed out Parra Stadium.Eels v Roosters 1987. I'm the tall bloke in the '86 style Parra Jersey with number 3 on the back (crow). Check my sweet mullet :) .  I was 18 - the fella to my left is my best mate, we've been going to the footy together (with others) for over 30 years. We graduated from The Hill to the Thornett Stand in 1989.

    Have a great grand final day mate - cheers :)


    • Spot on Kram and the same to you bud

    • Did someone say hotdogs?

  • I miss the days where I could blow so hard that I would cripple women.

    • Happy days cousin Fong now that is going back

  • I miss the days when Telstra adds didn’t feature gay marriage. 

  • What's Blow mean ?

Game Day Blog - Sharks vs Eels

Well, this is a danger game for our Eels IMO. The Sharks are on a bit of a roll with 3 wins on the trot. The Eels also have won their past 3 games, but haven't exactly been convincing.I thought our opponents in the Bulldogs last week, were probably…

Penrith are the team to beat.

Who watching the Panthers? Boy they are playing fantastic football, big quick outside backs, strong forwards, great in attack & defence. Smashing Canberra 24-0 at half time & Canberra ain’t playing bad, will we be ready for them? Who can stop them?
