No Bruny9s this Monday 2nd - No 9s game this week, we will save our legs for impressing Will on his return on Wednesday night at Gillon Oval.
The howling gale and hot weather on Saturday saw only 8 brave the conditions so we had a little training session and a few of the new blokes got to meet the redoutable Mad Mick (and his esky), who will give the 47s some off field help this year.

Bondy - Yes, Ming, have been dropping in on the MUD from Old Abyssinia. Then generally dropping out about 90 seconds later when the internet connection fails. No photos to share just yet but I'll try to get something for you before departing. In the mean time there have been some interesting updates from the mud bath... playing for points, selection nights and a squadron of surplus players, no less. I am not the only one who has travelled a long way recently. See you next Wednesday. GB.

BRUNY9s THIS SAT - Thanks to those who helped during the successful summer-season of Bruny9s
NAJJ - Umpiring and Opening the shed when Ming was away
DOLI, LIV and one or two others who also helped out with the umpiring.
ADAM - advertising and letter drop that got quite a few new players along
EVERYONE for getting into the spirit, putting up with the whistle on play if you looked like bowling over one of the teenagers.
Also for not having to be chased for the $2:50 a session and for the honor system for softies.
Thanks fo all who just by coming and enjoying, made this innaugural 9s season a financial success, covering ice, bandages, ground rental, Castlemaine9s and an ump and trainer up there.
AND - IT WILL BE BACK DURING WINTER! on our OFF-weeks Mondays, under lights at Gillon
PLUS 11am THIS SAT at Gillon after the AusKick - get there about 10:30 please

Wazza - MUDLARK MOMENTUM pt 1: - it’s almost a year since I first pulled on the mudlark jumper in round 2 2011 on a glorious sunny day at Gillon Oval and played my first game of footy since I was 11. One of the great things about my time at the Mudlarks is the way new players are welcomed into the fold.
Whilst I am still new to the club and clearly still have lots to learn about playing the game I am excited by our prospects in 2012 based on the great guys already at the club and the new faces added in the offseason.
I’ve probably been to 6-8 sessions, a mixture of 9s and training and I thought I’d add a few observations on the form line on some of the new faces who are keen to pull on the boots in 2012. Apologies to those who miss out, there’s still plenty of love for you.
The early nomination for recruit of the year, FODGEY, has been worth every free latte Chook has had to dish out as the signing bonus. I haven’t played on Fodgeys team in the 9s but he is an absolute general initiating the switches, and giving instructions to all on the ground about where the footy should go next. Whatever team Fodgey is on move the ball better than the opposition. Late in the games he switches onto the ball and just continues setting the game up. Not only does the backline general come complete with Brother Fodgey who knows how to take a catch, but his son Rhys is the most promising development mudlark in 21 years time.
JIMMY – perhaps another part of the genius behind getting the Fodgeys has been the former essendon excitement machine - is super quick, loves to run, and always does, loves to sell the dummy, and frequently does. Is certain to add bite and can play anywhere.
GEORGE and MARWON – the brothers from different mothers have been super. Both like it up forward, both know where the goals are. George is the kind of forward that straightens up a side, leads at the ball, good hands, nice kick, good around the ground also. Whilst Marwon is a crafty small forward with a few tricks, who always reminds teammates in an amazingly positive way when they have ignored the first option to take a stupid shot at goal. Both look likely to be superb additions to the side.
PAYTS – aka ANTHONY? Medium utility who in first week of 9’s started ruck before switching back. This week he went forward and kicked a bag, and could have almost doubled it had he remembered his contact lenses. Last played in 1993, incredibly desperate for a guy who hasn’t played in so long, hurled his body around and on the deck like Benny P in full flight. Honestly he had more 1%ers in two weeks of 9s than I think I had in 5 games last year.
ZAC – a big unit, actually I am not really sure how tall he is, could be a forward/ruck option, seems to have good hands, is a good kick and covers the ground well. Big, strong and committed. Probably wont attempt to decapitate an opponent a la spiritual leader Johnny Thirss at Greensborough last year, but it wouldn’t surprise. Adam gave him a spray last week but the big fella shapes as an important part of the mudlarks spine.
KIWI ROB – rangy, athletic tall type new to the game has impressed all with his desire to learn the game, his fitness, and progress. Forward/Ruck/CHB – up to coach Wilba – could be the ruck replacement for Wil should he ever hang up the boots.
Whilst he isn’t a newby after joining us midseason LIV is just the classic thinking mans footballer, he does almost everything well, and rarely wastes the ball. I feel I become a smarter player just being in his presence.

ADAM:- Good stuff. Looking forward to part two.
I'll clarify that part about the spray for the big Zac. I am firmly in the pro Zac camp. He adds a dimension of fear we haven't had in my time. I wasn't that annoyed about the hit, it was more frustration that for a few moments it felt like I';d done the back again. This time the Mudlark gods granted me a reprieve.

Thursday, 29 March 2012 04:10 PM - Host: its-wv-bcprox3.its.rmit.edu.au

Bobby Fodge:- Wazza you are an absolute legend! Thanks for the kind words, the momentums were a great read and Rhys was really wrapped he got a mention too.
Re: The Mudlarks... I agree, those Brunswick boys know how to make a bloke feel welcome, thanks fellas. Be it Naj's infectious enthusiasm, Ming's commitment, Will's coaching from a million miles away or even Chook singing me 'Fodginator' theme songs it's been a great start at this great club. Special mention to that bloke Wazza, (bloody good footballer too!).
Now the rest is up to us..as it's been mentioned already we need to get everyone down to training. Us new blokes still havent met the rest of the team! I've already booked the engraver and picked the spot in the 'pool' room for my championship medal;) We need to train as a team to make it happen (or i lose my deposit at the engravers!)
For those that have made it to training, keep up the good work.

jimmy:- WAZZA.....Amen !
Thanks for all the kind wordswink
As for the short time i have see u play in pre-season AFL 9
I have notice you have the confidence everytime u have touch the ball
you have enough talented to be the midfield / forward warrior.
Friday, 30 March 2012 10:52 PM - Host: 123-2-9-176.static.dsl.dodo.com.au

Wazza:- I felt the recruits needed the love, Fodgey and Jimmy. Footy clubs at their best welcome people into the mix.

And Bobby you are right, it is important to get everyone at training, and Coach Wil is pushing that hard. The young fell Rhys looks an exciting prospect in the making.

On a day like today, for the non-windowed office worker, when the weather is superb, the excitement of games is just around the corner. Hopefully glorious sunny autumn and winter days await the Mudlarks.

Wednesday, 28 March 2012 04:23 PM - Host: wsip-98-188-95-170.lv.lv.cox.net

Ming:- Ah so, Will. Maybe it didn't upload because it was too big, or your server is a bit slow...
There is a 5Mb upload limit on photos, coz we only have so much space.
But some cameras these days take photos much bigger than that, so they wont upload here, unless you downwardly resize.
Also important, that 5Mb is downloaded via your bandwith every time you load or even re-load the Mud (plus every other image on the page). So I'll make it only 15 items get displayed on each page.
Good idea to resize them to about 800x600 pixles, (while this multiplies out to 500Kb, jpgs save some space, maybe 50%)

"If you're not frightened, you can't be brave." and
"If you pull out, you get hurt".
Zac is quick and big, doesn't have to scare anyone to get the ball.
You might have missed our coach for a few years before Will - Ruby (see pic) - now Ruby could add the dimension of fear.

POINTS!!! - We it's been coming - Reserves (Masters) will play for points in 2012.
Relevant Rules:
  • Age restrictions are O-35 before 31/12.
  • No limit on the bench in season. In finals it's max 6.
  • Opposition can supply one umpire if they want to.
  • FINALS ELIGIBILITY: 4 games (Resies or 47s) - but - Max 4 in Firsts to play in Resies final (unless Firsts playing same day)
    SO - we can go out a ACTIVELY recruit 35yos!
    Our firsts side, MARCELLIN, is travelling well, but not heaps overstocked in the 35s, and naturally will have more available for home games, so there might be room for a few of our blokes to help them out on away games when we play at the same venue.
    Note: if we have too many Masters on home games, we can play a game of 9s after our game to keep blokes interested, or ease them along fitness or hardness-wise to match it with the competition superstars like Willi, Diamond Valley, Beacy or the Evil Empire Essendon.

    ADAM:- GOOD. WE SHOULD AIM FOR GF.
    THERE'S ENOUGH TALENT IN THIS SIDE TO GIVE THE TOP TWO A SHAKE. AND WHILE THE NUMBERS ARE GOOD I'M NOT CONVINCED THEY'VE SWOLLEN QUITE TO SURPLUS.
    Tuesday, 27 March 2012 06:16 PM - Host: 114-198-113-142.dyn.iinet.net.au

    Ming:- No Surplus yet. However, we can recruit and not have to worry about too many on the bench like a couple of years ago, prior to the 47s. 9s can take some slack, as well as just be footy for fun.
    As far as playing for Silverware - Let's aim for turning up to games, and training, then some teamwork, system, flair...
    and so on up the scale...

    ADAM:- YET TO MEET ANYONE WHO ENJOYED THE BEACONSFIELD TOUR...
    WINNING IS THE ONLY #@*%! FOR FUN.
    SOUND OUT THE YOUTH MOVEMENT IN THE OVER 35'S AND YOU'LL FIND EVERY BLOKE ACTUALLY WANTS TO WIN. THEY LOVE A BIT OF SYSTEM, SOME PLANS.
    WE'RE NOT TALKING MALTHOUSE ROMAN LEGION SYSTEM, BUT THE FACT WILL DRILLS 'SWITCHING' IS ENOUGH OF A PLAN TO BEGIN WITH.
    THEY HATE 'GO OUT AND HAVE A KICK AND JUST HAVE SOME FUN'. THEY'VE GONE BEYOND THAT AND THE PLAYERS ARE BETTER THAN THAT
    TRUST ME, I AM THE EARS OF THE CLUB....DISSENTERS OUTSIDE THE COMMITTEE ARE FREE TO CONTACT ME ON MY CLUB LINE.

    Ming:- I did mean the 9s is where we do Play for Fun, Premier Masters is too serious the last couple of years to still fall under that description.
    Also, I should have said "As far as talking about playing for silverware..." meaning any talk about further up that scale might be presumptive.
    And now you have got me trying to nut out the word that the automatic censoring function clobbered, could it be one of those little blue pills? Um, The only viagra for fun? Er, The only #@*%! for fun?

    Bondy's in Ethiopia - If you have an ISP who doesn't register in each city, the fickle yellow blip registers the geographic mathematical middle of a country. So it looks like Bondy is in the outback, but he may equally be on the coast in Djibouti or on the Kenyan border.

    MUDLARKS 2012 DATES - Bruny9s WILL CONTINUE ALTERNATE MONDAYS at GILLON OVAL, Cnr Victoria & Pearson St Bruns.
    * This Monday 26th Mar * 6pm at Fleming Park, Albert St, E.Bruns
    * This Wednesday 28th Mar * 6:30pm training returns to Gillon Oval - BBQ & Drinks.
    Will wants everybody to put in the 3 Weds in April before the first game (see below)
    * Next Sat 31st Mar * 11am at Gillon Oval. AusKick have their RegoDay, and they lent us the goalposts, so we are donating some footies, then have an AFL9s game (no age limit, touch tackling) and maybe snare a Dad or two.
    * South Coast Buccaneers Easter Mini-Carnival Sat 7 & Sun 8 Apr * Pambula Beach Sports Complex,
    South Coast NSW (between Eden and Merimbula). Free Camping, Lots of Activities

    Will:- Trying to keep the fitness up and it was made easier by running in Central Park which is a great fitness venue. I am hoping that all is going well at home and the Mudlarks are doing well, thanks to Adam for the updates on training and new faces.
    I want to try and contact everyone by email, Mud and text for the lead up into the start of the season. If we can insist that everyone who intends to play with us this year gets to training in the 3 April nights before the start of the season and makes themselves known to the coaches group. Last thing I want to do is go into the year like we did last year scratching for 17 players against Reservoir. Can we organize to contact the people missing who we would like to see back....trying to think without a list but guys like Naz (full back) and Damo (if he isn't coaching juniors), etc.
    Maybe we can do a proper type of team selection and "pie night" on the final training night before Game 1.
    I will be back on April 2nd and then have that week off before returning to work, so happy to get on the phone to everyone and get some commitments for the first 3 games at least. Will have better wifi for the next part of the trip, so let me know if you have any questions, thoughts or ideas. All the best from Boston.
