Monthly Archives: October 2009




All Associated with The Geelong Football Club would like to thank and acknowledge all participants of the AFL and associated affiliations for their contribution towards the 2009 AFL Season for without this the season just would not have been such a wonderful one. Most notably THANKYOU:
Thankyou St Kilda

** For being so wise to play “Muppets” R Clarke, McQuallter and Zac Dawson. Would not get a game for Deniliquin 4ths in Old Ammo’s. Anymore “specials” for 2010??
** For forgetting Steve Milne has a heart the size of a pea and only looks good against Port, Freo and Melb. Love a choker in big games.
** Unable to understand difference between a good player and a champion. NOTE Nick Reiwoldt is a Good Player – not a champion. A champion:
– Kicks goals after siren to win games ( Stk v Ess ).
– Plays well on the BIG STAGE – Harry Taylor smashed him.
– Wins a Brownlow in a GF winning year.
** Rod Butters for negotiating the Ethiad deal for StK in 2003 as we like StKilda playing 12 games year under a closed roof – nice and warm, flat firm grassy ground, no rain to get the hair wet or ruin the fake tan. Note – BIG FINALS are played in open with wind / breeze, rain, sun – it is called the MCG.

Thankyou Collingwood

** Supporters for saying all August ” Can not wait to get Geelong in Finals as they are soft…”
** For thinking they are better than they really are – very average football team.
** For providing a great entree to 2009 when they lost the Night GF as part of a Geelong Feb training drill.
** Having faith in Medhurst, Anthony, Rocca, Davis and Didak – Shannon Byrnes had more stats in 09 finals series than these five tragics combined.
** For not taking “Stevie J” with a second round draft pick in 2006 – THANKYOU.
** Providing great TV for all watching Eddie and family sink into their seats during second half Prel smashing they received. BEETROOT HEADED BUFFOON.

Thankyou Bulldogs

** Scott Clayton – imagine if you had selected Buddy at #3 and not the cry baby Ryan Griffen ???? You would now have your full forward and who knows ??? Thankyou Scott.

Thankyou Adelaide

** Allowing Coll to beat you by 2 points in final at G as it merely elevated their internal self opinion prior to meeting Cats in Prelim final.

Thankyou Brisbane

** Thankyou for allowing Carlton to get 30 points up in last quarter on an otherwise dreary Sat night, only to them go bang, bang, bang and leave them stranded as LOSERS. One of the best Sat night movies have watched in years.

Thankyou Carlton

** “They know We are Coming” …still waiting.
** One player does not make a team – keep playing Cloke, Fev, Bentick and Stevens – puts a smile on all our faces.
** Thinking playing Fev will get you a flag. More chance with Barb from the cheer squad.

Thankyou Essendon

** For putting Haw in their rightful place – out of the eight in R22. Memories of “Sooky Jeff Kennett” in the stand with hands on head will linger for many years to come.
** Providing a memorable Anzac Day for those enjoying a day of relax – beating Coll feral in last minute – thankyou.
** For not imposing too much pressure on Adel in final One. This meant Adel were fresh to play Coll and stretch them so they were spent before Prelim final.

Thankyou Hawthorn

** For being the most arrogant, self centred, rude, self indulgent Premiership Team the AFL has ever witnessed.
** Jeff Kennett for having the audacity to question Geelong’s “Mental Fragility” in March 2009 – not bad for a team who can not even make the eight as defending premier.
** For having the nastiest and most aggressive little “runt” of a coach – wonder why Todd Viney and Hardwick left with more to follow.
** For thinking Buddy and Roughead would take too glory again – understand two players do not make a team.
** For playing fat / overweight / unfit “Porky Pig” – Stu “give me a tub of pasta and ice-cream” Dew. Really Clarko…
** For being so gracious and accepting of Buddy suspension for smashing of Cousins in R21 – karma boys re Ess game one week later.
** For the continuous squealing re injuries – Geelong were lucky they had no injuries in 2009 !!!!!

Thankyou North Melbourne

** Leigh Colbert…draft picks resulting in Corey Enright and Cam Mooney. Sometimes it pays to be loyal hey Leigh ???? Cam may send you a photo of the Cup if you’re lucky. If not – join the queue.

Thankyou Richmond

** Thankyou for Brad Ottens and the annual 8 premiership points.

Thankyou Melbourne

** For giving StKilda a nice “feel” round 22 of the MCG.
** For giving Geelong pick 8 for Brent Maloney in 2006 – resulted in Brad Ottens arrival to Cattery.
** Clint Bizzell for pick 17 – James Kelly to Cattery.

Thankyou Freo, West Cost, Syd and Port

** Thankyou for the frequent flier points – will come in handy end of season trips.


** Grant ” I am not jealous” Thomas – every Monday Night 10pm Footy Classifieds you built up St Kilda all year – teamwork, determination, spirit, skill….always said you could never coach you overrated whale.
** Jeff Kennett – where is your poofy Brown and Yellow jacket now ????
** Shayne Crawford – for each week on Footy Show just continually reminding us all what a real dickhead you are always are and were – weak for not playing 2010.
** Joffa – did not see you much in finals – oh forgot…Coll have to win a final for you to wear the Gold Jacket.
** Carlton, Melbourne, North, Essendon, Port, Freo – for letting Joel Selwwod slip through to pick #7 2006 draft.

Bad Cricket Cards – episode 1


Michael Bevan.

Get a load of the terrible shot Michael Bevan is playing in this 1st episode of DGES FOOTY TALK’s ‘Bad Cricket Cards’

Foot not to the pitch of the ball, head nowhere near the pitch of the ball, face of the bat pointing towards gully, bottom hand off the bat…

There is only one place the ball is going in this shot, right down the throat of the fieldsman at cover.

Bevan out!

Michael Bevan also qualifies for the 1 in 3 Bult rule.

DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, SMOOKS has sent us the task to share our thoughts on what could happen to Fev during trade week.

SMOOKS: It is with pleasure that I note that the AFL’s Greatest Knucklehead Brendan Fevola is being traded by those tanking Blues.

Word is that his Brownlow night shenanigans are too shocking to mention and as a consequence, the parties are heading their own direction.   

In my opinion, he must have done something as shocking as waking up next to Caroline Wilson in the morning. Uurrgghhhh 

Anyhow, it would be great to hear anyone else’s thoughts as to how pissed he really was.

Please share your thoughts on ‘The Fate of FEV’

Fevola Jokes

fev(pic: Nicole Coutts)


The jokes are out on Bredan Fevola. (lovingly sent to us by DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, KING CAREY).

Carlton recruits a 6’10” African for 2010. He is very athletic but has no 
football experience. They decide to put him in the forward line. At the 
first training session Ratten gets all the forwards together to go through 
the game-plan. He speaks very slowly:
‘Carlton man get ball in midfield. When you see, you run toward Carlton 
man. Carlton man kick ball to you. You catch ball..’ The African pipes up: 
‘Mr Ratten, I can speak perfect English Sir.’
 Ratten replies ‘Yes I know. I was talking to Fev.’
 A man, on his way home from work was stuck in traffic which was much worse  than usual. Noticing a policeman walking among the stalled cars, he asked,  “Officer, what’s the holdup?”
The policeman says: “Brendan Fevola is so depressed about his behaviour at 
the Brownlow that he’s stopped his car and is threatening to douse himself 
in petrol and set himself on fire. He says everyone hates him. His wife is 
leaving him and taking everything and he’s going to lose his $750,000 
contract at Carlton. I’m walking around taking up a collection for him.”
“Oh, really?” the man says. “How much have you collected so far?”
“So far only 18 litres, but a lot of people are still siphoning.
 Q: What do Fev and a bottle of beer have in common?
 A: They’re both empty from the neck up.
 Fev is staggering home after Brownlow night when he’s stopped by a 
policeman, who asks him “Have you any ID?” Fev replies “Bout What?”
 Fev leaves the Brownlow after-party and decides he needs another drink. He  staggers through the front door of a bar. Obviously drunk, he lurches up to  the bar, seats himself on a stool and, with a belch, asks the bartender for 
a beer.
The bartender politely informs Fev that it appears that he has already had 
plenty to drink. He would not be served additional liquor at this bar, but 
could get a cab called for him.
Fev is annoyed, grumbles, climbs down off the bar stool, and staggers out 
the front door.
A few minutes later, Fev stumbles in through the side door of the bar.
 He wobbles up to the bar and hollers for a beer. The bartender comes over 
and still politely, but more firmly, refuses to serve him due to his 
inebriation. Again, the bartender offers to call a cab for him.
Fev looks at the bartender for a moment angrily, curses, and shows himself 
out the side door, all the while grumbling and shaking his head.
A few minutes later, Fev returns, bursts in through the back door of the 
bar. He plops himself up on a bar stool, gathers his wits, and belligerently 
orders a beer.
The bartender comes over and emphatically reminds him that he is clearly 
drunk, will not be served a drink and either a cab or the police will be 
called immediately.
Fev looks at the bartender and yells at him in a rage, “Man! How many bars 
do you work at?”
