  1. What a shock! The glamour club of the AFL (sorry Eddie) get the umpiring decisions go their way against the battling Bulldogs.
    The football gods will have their revenge on Riewoldt, just ask Jeff White.

  2. Oh dear. I had a nasty feeling that today’s FDOTM might be a tad downbeat.
    Commiserations FD.
    Clearly, on Monday mornings like this one, not even the thought of Collingwood being thrashed can lift a dog’s spirits.
    More pins please!!!!

  3. Hey First Dog. Why not reserve your vitriol for a club more deserving, like the Lions, Swans or the Pies. As a lifetime Saints supporter, I have rarely been given the chance to dream the impossible dream. I was only 2 when they last bought home the flag, and suffered the pain of being at the ’97 final. I tried not to cry.

    This morning I picked up my GF ticket, but I’ll be on a plane to Kathmandu when the game is on. I’m giving the ticket to my brother, who loves the Saints as much as I do. Such is the generous spirit of my being.

    So, please, forget the past and if you can find it in your heart to support the Saints on this one day in September, we will all love you just that little bit more. Especially if you could do a special “St Kilda wins the GF” FDOTM cartoon panel on Monday??? We’ve had 26 wooden spoons, and only one flag. Make it a t towel, and I’ll buy 10 of them.

  4. Oooh yes, that ‘incorrect disposal’ free was indeed a shocker. I was sitting at the opposite end of the ground, 200 metres away at the base of the Ponsford Stand, and even from there it was obvious that he’d kicked it. At least you can console yourself with the thought that McInerney should also (along with the Bulldogs) miss out on a Grand Final appointment on the basis of that decision alone, and maybe the first few senior games in 2010 as well.

  5. FD, I’ve hit a new low. I offered you tea and sympathy. I offered you a St Kilda scarf, I tried to cheer you up. And I’ve been edited out. As I recall I suggested you might go into a dead faint at the sight of the scarf. I’m buggered if I can work out what happened. 🙁 🙁

    Your “Ekk! A nerd barn! Was poetry. Oh what a beat to it. 🙂
    The best I could come up with was to change the gender as well as the letters. As in it’s my pleasure to introduce our own Kanee Brendar. Here’s looking at you girl!

  6. Sorry, FD, I was one of the happy Saints fans hair-pulling and jumping about all the way home, and I saw all you sad Doggies and I felt your pain (cause I’ve felt it too), but we had to enjoy our moment, the same way you would have.
    Losing hurts, and it sucks, and it shouldn’t happen, but it does.
    I wish it could’ve been a Saints/Dogs GF, but one fairytale would still end up being destroyed, wouldn’t it?
    Keep loving the game, FD, love and be proud of the way your Dogs played all year, and come back next year ready to bite.
    At least Collingwood are out, hey?

  7. Bitter! – try this for a Wormwood sandwich (on sourdough rye) – Ben Rutten/John Anthony free kick, 30 seconds to go, after great pack mark by another Crow defender – the fix was in…..

  8. FD, I’m begging you, on my knees, do you remember-or does anyone else remember the name of the article, and the name of the author, of the article saying that the late Michael Jackson was a castrato. The comments were so funny that I wanted to re-read them. Please, I beg you nicely. I grovel.
    Jonathan Green: I’ll come and groom your horse for free! I think.

  9. As the apparent sole Collingwood fan on here, may I say in the spirit of all that is fair and good in Footy, may both teams this coming Saturday get done like a dog’s dinner.

  10. FirstDog, I no longer have any interest in the football/AFL/rugby league or whatever it is (I’m vague on these details since the last boyfriend hightailed it into the sunset ….) but you’re at least 50% of the reason I renewed my subscription today.


  11. You dear poor mad things …

    And they call Scientology a religion…..

    Being Victorian in NSW at this time feels like I’ve just escaped over the border to South Korea….
