A new OTP and Trivia Questions
« on: May 10, 2005, 12:04:16 AM »
Despite work seeming to always be in the way (it certainly does impact on my social outings :-\) OTP has been updated (finally)

http://oneeyed-richmond.com/ontheprowl/article080505.htm

this time round my soap box comes out to take a swipe at the media again ;D - this time 3AW

some news on Dave Rodan and a couple of others

and 2 new trivia questions :thumbsup

===============

1. Who am I?

I was born in 1933. I played 1 game in 1954 and kicked 0 goals. My playing weight was 89.5kgs

2. Who Said This?

"Everybody's really pleased that I've got this far. I'll be taking it as it comes but hopefully I can play about 10 games."

Great report WP  :cheers.

Good news about D-Rod. I think he is doing the right thing waiting til next year. Get virtually a full pre-season under his belt then be right to go for 2006.

----------------------

1. Moi:lol .... nah stumped me already WP. Was the player more famous for his off-field role(s) at the Tiges?

2. Daniel Jackson ?

1. I am not sure MT - I'd never heard of this bloke before until I found his name in the book† ;D Clues may follow later today.

You know it is amazing the number of blokes who only played 1 game of footy for the Tigers - staggering  :o

2. Not Daniel Jackson

I could have this wrong but isn't the most famous one the guy who played in one of our first VFL premierships in the early 1920's then over summer shot himself in the foot rabbit shooting or something. First game a GF then never played footy again?
