    Yeah, you're probably right, but: a man with a moustache, who has a petulant hissy fit, because he's not allowed in the men's change rooms? Could there possibly be another reason?

    Deja, I'm a big fan of your posts and your humour but I find this one offensive and inappropriate. It has two offensive implications:

    1. There is something wrong with being gay and, if you are, that might be a reason not to be allowed into the Swans change rooms.

    2. Gay men are petulant and have hissy fits.

    I don't think that's funny.

    And, as the Pride match approaches, we wonder why no AFL player has ever yet come out as gay. Why would someone open themselves to endless snide comments of this ilk?

    Sydney's full of bankers,
    Melbourne's full of [email protected],
    Our half forward flankers,
    Are better than you tankers.

    Well, while I think that your points are valid, I think that my mischief making, is directed more at the machismo of the commercial media. That is, I suspect that Brian Taylor's outburst last week, would be perceived in his own mind, as asserting dominance over our degenerate club. While I could have pointed out that it was childish and narcissistic, I just felt that it was more amusing to say that, well, isn't that a bit gay, as a critique of a privileged media personality, who was trying to assert some sort of alpha male dominance.

    Ahem! Keep in mind that probably 15-20,000 of our members are from Melbourne/Victoria. Sure, there are plenty of toss-pots here but having spent half my life in each city, I'd say Sydney wins the percentage of jerks count easily.

    That's fine, we can just edit Barry's banner slightly:

    Sydney's full of bankers,
    Melbourne's full of bankers,
    But our half forward flankers,
    Are better than you tankers.

    Same same
    Captain, I am detecting large quantities of win in this sector
