Thomas? What a Joke – er

One of my favorite all time movie lines comes from the 1989 movie ‘BATMAN’ when Jack Nicholson as The Joker questions…

“Can somebody please tell me what kind of a world do we live in where a man dressed as a bat steals all of my press”

Well this famous line has risen again, a bit closer to home this time in the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP.

“Can somebody please tell me what kind of a world we live in where a pretty boy steals all of our press”

I refer of course to the fact that Essendon had an almighty win over the Collingwood Scum, yet the Collingwood camera magnet, Dale (The pretty) Thomas received all of the attention .

I’ve mentioned in this forum before about the fact that Thomas appears to be the only Collingwood player permitted to get his photo taken – well get a load of this:

Essendon thumped Collingwood on Saturday.

I rushed home to watch ‘After the game’ and what did I find?

Collingwood pretty boy, Dale Thomas being interviewed, a panel member and special guest on the dud ‘After the Game’ footy/teen show.

Not much journalistic substance about the game but more ‘Teen Magazine’ type questions to which ‘The Pretty’ was more than happy to give his giggly answers.

Typical from channel 10 and a fair dinkum dud TV Show.

The following morning I rushed to the Milk Bar with my trusty canine at my heel to purchase the Sunday Herald Sun. I thumbed my way to the sports pages only to find a full page picture of The Pretty in tears after their loss (The crying bit was good, the subject was not). Furious, but laughing at the poor ol’ Thomas photo, I further thumbed my way through the gossip newspaper to find the Essendon v Collingwood match report all the way in on page 9. This time with yet another photo of The Pretty giving Essendon bloke Angus (na na na na na na na na-na-na Angus) Monfries a shoulder ride to a speccie.

(The Angus speccie photo can be seen on DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, Pear’s blog

Bitter/Sweet images of Dale (The Pretty) Thomas this week I must say but the newspaper did make for great fireplace kindling.

Shannon Grant Contest

I noticed Shannon Grant has been suspended by the Kangaroos for mucking up at a sponsor’s golf day. 

It led me to question how badly would you have to behave to muck up at a Sponsor’s Golf day. 

What did he do? 

If ever he has played golf at the Barooga Golf Course he has probably had the old battle-axe lady from the pro shop chasing him to get the golf cart back such as happened to me at our cricket club golf day. She told me I was taking too long to play my round (the old bitch didn’t think to have a go at the weekend hackers who were in front of us for the entire 18 holes holding us up). 

Perhaps it could be like DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipsters STIV, MVP BARNSEY and COL who were fortunate enough to play a round at Moonah Links. After we had been wined and dined by the drinks cart for 17 holes, we decided to have a race in the golf carts up the 18th, over the bunkers and greens etc on the prestigeous course. (I scored 218 that day) 

Perhaps Shannon Grant took a wiz on the 11th tee aka DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, Mick Dollard from team ‘The Skases’ at Tocumwal. 

How about Rockstar Steve Williamson who did the helicopter hurl with his putter on the 16th at Yarrambat. His putter is still there today, flapping in the breeze at the top of the eucalypts 20 years later. 

Let me know your thoughts of what Shannon Grant could possibly have done to deserve club suspension.
