It goes to prove you have to be careful what you say.
As promised, Poor ol’ Julia has been selected at Full Forward this week for Poor ol’ Footscray.

The worst scoreboard I have ever seen.
I went along to support Portarlington football club last weekend as Port played away against Newcomb in the Bellarine football league.
The Newcomb football club have the undisputed worst scoreboard I have ever seen! At first I thought the scores were 13 11 66 until my quick mathematics rang a bell to tell me that 13 goals 11 does not add up to 66. I then shrewdly discovered that 13 11 66 was the Pizza Hut phone number!
One has to wonder whether PIZZA HUT and KFC sponsorship warrants your footy club being ridiculed here on DGES FOOTYTALK.
You may recall I posted an article on DGES FOOTYTALK a year ago on 11.6.2009, commenting how I have never seen Portarlington win a game and I have rarely seen them score. Well the good news folks is that Port had a day out against Newcomb and won the match by 42 points.
Great celebrations were enjoyed by the town of Portarlington that night and well into the next day as the second last placed Demons defeated the bottom side Newcomb.
13.15.93 to 6.15.51
Well done Port!
Justice in Melbourne
A seven-year old boy was at the centre of a Melbourne courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him.
After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.
After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Richmond football team, whom the boy firmly believes is not capable of beating anyone.
Fremantle Football Club has been rocked by a drug scandal.
After investigations by the AFL Commission suggested that a Fremantle player was involved in the use of illegal drugs, the AFL have taken a hardnosed approach to the problem and stripped the Fremantle Football Club of ALL awards won over the past 15 years.
An AFL Commissioner was seen leaving Fremantle Oval this morning with
· 15 participation certificates.
· 3 junior whopper with cheese value meals.
· 7 chocolate frogs.
Insiders close to the club, state that the club is devastated.
