Just caught the end of a replay of the woman's 10,000 metres won by Eilish McColgan (Scotland) in a new Games Record.

Broke the record set 32 years ago.

So what many might say.

The previous record was held by her mother.

Just heard Josh Jenkins on SEN with his full version of the Adelaide camp.
Seriously this is frightening stuff
- Broken promises about not discussing his childhood
- Claims players told the club had signed confidentiality agreements on their behalf
- A doctor's report which never saw the light of day

Josh Jenkins becomes the latest ex-Crow to open up on the camp: https://t.co/nX4Sw2QrOv

His statement is a must read. Reads like fiction, frightening that it actually occurred. Legal action could be the next step.

There's a missed opportunity!

Many many years ago, when the MCG was being re-done, and the old white pole metal fence was being replaced, a mates father saw an opportunity.
He was making a plumbing delivery to the site, and saw a heap of the old fence panels piled up. He asked the foreman what was happening with them. Getting sold for scrap he was told. My mates father made him an offer for as many he could fit on his truck.
Took them home, cut them into 3 pole segments, so they looked like a tall skinny set of stumps, and sold them as memorabilia. Apparantly turned a few hundred dollars into around $8,000 in a matter of weeks. Reckons he only made 2 mistakes. Not grabbing more, and selling them too cheap!

It is rare that you can say a trade is a win / win but this one I think actually was.

Short term blues got a capt,, a browlow medallist, a leader.
A champion of the game.

Long term Eagles get a fwd who kicked 723 goals, a leader, a premiership player.
A champion of the game.

Both have left their mark on the AFL and will be fondled remembered by the fans and honoured for their contribution to the world's greatest game.
