The Teams – R17

Written by Motts on July 13 2017

Napoleon Bonaparte was invading England. One day he was standing in his tent when one of his generals rushed in. “Emperor, there’s 1000 enemy troops coming over the hill.”

“General”, Napoleon said. “Fetch me my red jacket”.

“Why do you want that?”, the general said.

“So when they cut me, they won’t see me bleed.”

The general walked out of Napoleon’s tent truly in awe of his commanding officer. 15 minutes later he rushed back in again “Emperor, original estimates were wrong. Its actually 100,000 enemy troops coming over the hill!”

There was a pause and then Napoleon said:

“General, fetch me my brown corduroys”.

    1. Battle is a mid sized forward. He doesn’t get a lot of the ball but he’s highly skilled and certainly knows where the goals are. Has a lot of potential and should be a regular senior player within a couple of years. Still at high school he has hit the scoreboard regularly at Sandringham and deserves his chance but… He will probably go out when Membery comes back from suspension.


  1. I expect some good news at the selection table.

    Greene , JJK , JPK , Howe all to be named and , hopefully play.. Gazza to be named , but will face a fitness test tomorrow.

    In not so positive news i saw footage of Oliver limping with what looked like an ankle injury all through the Dees training session today. Obviously will travel to Alice Springs , but must be in some doubt and a chance of being a late out.


  2. I’m gonna deck Scott Thompson on Saturday

    Just you wait and see

    #YearOfTheHyphen #NTUA


    1. with the rubbish naming of teams and then “late outs” lately, I’ll believe they are playing 5 mins before the bounce!!!!


    1. Been averaging 40 possies in the twos, might be eating those words soon.

      Not this year, I bet, but soon.


  3. Don’t think I will be able to loop hole this week so who do I have on the field

    TU: Parsons
    TD: Greenwood


  4. Great teams this week – no major surprises!!

    Who to trade scooter out for:

    T/up Zorko
    T/down Titch

    Both have great runs home – particularly in the SC finals.

    Have an important league match this week – so would like the person I bring in to score well this week in particular.

    My opponent has Titch, but surely Scooter / Geelong works him over this week at Skilled?

    Zorko is probably going to get more attention too, but do Richmond have any decent taggers? Zorko seems to go pretty well at Etihad.
