The players and Officials wore armbands today in support of Ryan Dienje's girlfriend (Brigid) whose father Kenneth died during the week. The club expresses its condolences to the Taylor family.
A day in the new Media & Officials Box is available at more than reasonable dollars. Enjoy the best view available of a game at Ord Minett, and your canteen snacks, while having the art of Magoos game timekeeping explained by Ray Johnson, press the siren switch on Ray's command, and listen as the umpires' advisor comments on the adjudicators performance while the cameraman coughs his germs in the confined space. First in best dressed.
A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME
Lobby is up for anything to help out. He looked great in his trainers' pink uniform with bright orange track shoes for the seniors game. He told us it was the same outfit he wore to 'Splendour in the Grass'.
We are given to understand that is either (i) another game of football; (ii) a picnic with his lover; or (iii) a music festival just south of here.
All the Home sides.
We think finally we will get there and we will be the "dark colt" Click here for the finals arrangements.
We will feature the final three weeks 20, 21 and 22 of the Triple Premiership season (plus Conrad Cup) for the remainder of July. Then the Semi and Prelim first week of August and the Grand Finals during the reunion week when we play Labrador at home.
Leading into the final three weks we were sitting equal with Sufers but in second place on percentage behind Labrador. Burleigh were in fourth spot.
Fortunately, for these games, we have details for all three grades and therefore able to pay hommage to the Reserves and Colts players who performed in the big time as well as the Seniors.
Given the size of the cabinet, populist trends, and the Great Encourager's love of the Swans, we are surprised that there is no Minister for Australian Rules Football with a remit to protect our game from foreign codes. Damian Drum? We could expand but won't.
AFL ROUND 18 TIPS
We are homesick:
WOODS at Vic park, BLOODS at the Lake Oval, GOLD COAST at Carrara, WEST COAST at the WACA, FOOTESCRAY at Western Oval, CATS at kardinia Park, BOMBERS at Windy Hill, HAWKS at Glenferrie Oval and PORT at Alberton to finish as always in the 70s!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THE BYE
Looking for the crown jewells if you live in Perth. Geez it's a tad fresh in the morn.
JOSH SEARL STILL IN THE NEWS
AFL LADDER IF TEAMS HAD KICKED STRAIGHT
Palmy on the top rung followed by a pelaton of 5 sides all on 9 wins. Going to be an interesting July/August and we will have a big say in shaping the finals given we play the Maggies, Palmy and Labrador in the run home.
PEEL THUNDER V EAST FREO
Played in atrocious conditions. Uninspiring footy but player depth exceeded QAFL ranks. WAFL umpires younger than QAFL counterparts, particularly in the Magoos - didn't seem to make much difference. Facilities, we give you Ord Minnett. Crowd around twice that of our well attended games.
We believe that Squiz has been in hospital this week (blood poisoning). All the best for a recovery.

Best: J. O''Shea, B. Palmer, D. Dienjes, J. Platell, M. Backman, B. Chadwick
Beaten by a better side. Still in contention midway through the third, and we thought maybe their bigger blokes would tire. Nup. Only once could we score successive goals, and you can't bridge the gap if that's the case. Rhino tackle of the year, second quarter in front of opposition box.
Brayde Plamer has sore hands.

Best: M. Smith, H. Bobogi, B. O''Reilly, D. King, M. Kavic, M. Kennedy
Interesting game of footy. We put in a great first quarter but then watched as they put on 7 to zip in the second stanza. Our blokes answered a few questions in the third to make a game of it but in the end the better side prevailed.
Lobba was full of pride after his charges fought it out all the way. Coach's prophetic words on our debut player Smith.

The boys showed they will be up for it when the finals hit in 2 weeks. Lots of class about if they can include those who have played senior footy rhis year. Highlight of the day was the time keeping of Chandler Rolfe's grandfather, a former player for South Melbourne (Sydney for those born post 1985 or so) and who also played alongside Tom Papley's grandfather at Morrabbin
Probably here for Chandler's uncle Paul's 50th.

Fults, 637 and the past
Noticed the Bully hopped on Fults re his Robina comeback. Reminded us of the day he went in front of Ray Hughson to become second on the all time QAFL goal kicking ladder.

TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY......THE BROADY CATS CAME OUT TO PLAY.... LET ME INTRODUCE TO YOU (Think Beatles)
2016 celebrates the twentieth anniversary of footy's holy grail - a ThreePeat in one day! In 1996, our farewell season to the Gold Coast Australian Football League, our Seniors, Ressies and Colts won flags on the hallowed turf of the Cattery. The photo in the slider above is the senior squad of the day. Click here for an expanded view with names attached. Crank up the zoom.
We have also developed a self explanatory summary of the 1996 season in four parts. In them you will find familiar and legendary names associated with the club. A good read will get your knowledge of this rare achievement up to speed for the reunion. Click here for Part I, here for Part II, here for Part III, and here for Part IV. You may need to zoom to read the newspaper clippings.
Part I references a 1996 Grand Final Day Cats Whisper. Click here for selected pages of that document with August and Sept lead-in scores, goals and best players for all three grades.
If you have any memorabilla, particularly of the Ressies and Colts, let's know and we can add to our archives. Any discrepancies between documents, archives and memories may be attributed to the Bully, alcohol or tired eyes of today's or yesteryears' generation.
Having read all that you might be interested in the document about our entry into the QAFL in 1997. This was published on the web site mid season 2015. Click here
