Damn. Saw them in the 80s when I was still in high school. My favourite Mentals song, lesser known but still a goodie.


Ps it's about AbbA
Good song. Liked the later song Mr Natural too and Plaza's Concrete and Clay (a cover). never a huge fan really but just reading their Wikipedia entry you forget how many songs they had that you know well

RIP to Bob. All the best to taz.

Willis had a nice bouffant and a bit of an awkward running into bowl style.

Sad thing nowadays is this thread getting updated too often....

Sure is TF.

Sad part of life now. As we age , every else ages(family, parents etc, other friends) its all too common.

Fearsome bowler was Willis with his action.
Nearly sent Rick RIP himself.

Heard a great interview with Rick today on Whateley's show as he put a call out to speak to Rick on the passing of Bob.

The one question which i found (compelling) , probably wrong word , If Rick held any ill feeling towards Bob.
Replied, NO. Part of cricket .

Here is the interview.

I saw in the obituaries today that former St Kilda player from the early 80's Doug Cox passed away. I vaguely remember controversy when the saints played him. Something about he was in Richmond's zone and shouldn't have been allowed to play for the saints. they got stripped of the points they won up to then. I also think in either his first game or first game against us he got knocked out.
RIP

That's pretty much it. It went to court where Cox was ruled a Richmond player, and we immediately cleared him back to St.Kilda for a small fee, maybe $5K. Papers may have even been signed outside the court. That same week we played St.Kilda at Waverley. Late in the game he was knocked out cold by Peter Welsh and carried off unconscious.

Later in the year after we won narrowly at Moorabbin, St.Kilda applied to the VFL to have Jimmy Jess charged with striking Peter Brown off video evidence, which wasn't allowed in tribunal cases at that point. Somehow the charge went ahead and Jess fronted the tribunal and was cleared, as the video was inconclusive. A rare and brief period of rivalry with the Saints.

The Sainters were probably still filthy that the Ghost ended up with us after being zoned to the Saints.
The good old days..........we were the masters at convincing players that they would be better off playing for the Mighty Tigers.

Indeed we are, a true destination club.

I remember reading how Dickie Clay decided not to play for lol@norf after the great man Jack Dyer had visited the family home.
The best decision the 4 time Premiership player ever made.
