Replacement Pills

By Pear

In response to the Tipsmaster’s plaintive cry for a suitable ugly person to take over from Peverill … who took over from Moorcroft … who took over from Bewick … who took over from Tony Daniher … who took over from the original ‘Pills’ Ezard …

I give you:

Kyle ‘Boots’ Reimers

and …

Cale ‘Yermumsa’ Hooker – (aka the missing Daniher).

RichMond ay morning…so good to me

EssenDon Bradman. Now I tell you is he any good.


Now you will all notice that I have selected Richmond in the final round of the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP. Before you all call for my sacking, I’ll have you know that Richmond are my lucky team and since I selected them in round 1 and they won, I thought it only fitting to select them in the final round also. APR.


You will also notice that I have gone against Poor ol’ Footscray. I’m telling you – and you mark my words…Poor ol’ Footscray will miss the 8.

Essendon has always been an ugly team.

Since Damien (Ugly Pills) Peverill is leaving Essendon, I’d like your thoughts on who will be the Bombers next Ugly Pills Player.

Jonathon, S.O.S (Son of Stiva) has made an impact on the Carlton Footy Club.

Jonathon is first born son of DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipsters, STIVA and VB, and a brain washed Carlton supporter.

I’ve tried my darndest to teach Jonathon the ‘See the Bombers Fly Up’, but he is more intent on the da da-da da-da…

shame really…

Jonathon learnt heaps in this photo. He learnt how to drink, wizz on walls and how to kick a bag full against Essendon. I’m not sure who is younger in mind in this photo, but I know who I’d prefer to be driving me home.

Jonathon can learn so much from Juddy. He can learn how to be a good skipper and stay loyal to your club and team mates – what Jonathon won’t learn from this photo is how to look comfortable holding kids.

Not sure what Jonathon can gain from having his photo with Mark Murphy but I do know which one I’d select first in the playground.


Fair dinkum, I don’t even know who this bloke is and I don’t think Jonathon is very interested in him either.

Make the move Jonathon – come over to Essendon where you can get your photo taken with spunky blokes, such as Lloyd, Fletcher, Lucas and Peverill.

Getting to know you – update

An expose by Pear

My friend Emma took one look at the photo of nerds Moose and Legend and declared:

“Looks like they inspired the film Office Space. Milton on the left, Lumbergh on the right.”

Now, I didn’t immediately know what she was talking about, but a quick Google revealed she was spot on:

Getting to know you.

Since the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP boasts such a diverse range of tipsters, tragically not all of us know each other.

My life time ambition is to say “G’day” to fellow DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipsters in the street if only I could recognise you all.

DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipsters, MOOSE and LEGEND have been kind enough to start us off on our ‘GETTING TO KNOW YOU’ segment by sending in a photo of themselves.

(I know MOOSE and LEGEND very well and might I say, this is a most flattering photo of them both)

This photo of MOOSE and LEGEND is proof that the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP attracts only the finest class of people.

We of the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP are all indebted to MOOSE (Dag) and LEGEND (Dork) for sharing their photo, dressed in their Sunday Best.

Please send in your own photos so we can all Get To Know Each Other in the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP.

(P.S. comical photos are encouraged – just remember if you don’t send in your own comical photo’s of yourself, I’m sure to have my own versions of you all somewhere that I can easily post on the site on your behalf)

20th Century Fox Round

My tips for the 20th Century Fox Round

Collingwood (foxing but will beat PA) 

Essendon (since that spunky fox Peverill is back, the Bombers can’t lose) 

WC (Dee supporters will miss this game while they pursue the fox and hound hunt this weekend) 

Brisbane (Poor ol’ Footscray will miss the 8 – this week they will be like a fox on the run – sweet as) 

Geelong (Will kick Sydney into Fox Studios) 

Hawthorn (This game is not even worthy to be shown on Foxtel) 

Kangaroos (‘Fox in Sox’ is almost as funny as Carlton losing – nice work Dr Zeuss) 

Fremantle (Not even Lindsay Fox could save St.Kilda this season  –  you are passing another Fox)


de de de de de-de-de-de-de-de-de-de-de-de de de de de de de de de de….

de de de de…

(for those of you who didn’t recognise it, that was the 20th Century Fox theme music.
