VOLUME 19, 21 AUGUST 2015
Forgotten about Blacks Ball antics? We haven’t.
Last week we were flooded with complaints. 
‘Why didn’t you mention Divots on the dancefloor?’
‘You can’t not mention action man’

'Why aren't there any more pictures of Tom Vickery's Girlfriend?'

'How did Ash Ireland get away with luring ladies into the shadows?'
All are valid points, and Ash Irelands funnel web spider routine has not been forgotten, but we need to include some incentive to attend Blacks Ball. If we recounted everything that happened in this reputable newsletter, it would probably end up as unsightly as Tom Chalk with his top off, and no one wants to be subjected to that abomination.

So next year, turn up to Blacks Ball if you want to see everyone do their best Ben Warren impersonation for 5 hours. Except for Tom Seagrim, who decided Shannon Noll was more his style; serenading 'what about me' into a red tin mic at the end of the night when he realised he was going home alone.
Surprisingly, Seags has a voice as smooth as a Nick Langridge head rub

It’s finals time around the club now, with the C-men, Brady Bunch and Scum all taking their first step towards September glory. With more finals prospects to be solidified in the coming weeks, there is certainly an air of anticipation around the club, much like awaiting a scoreboard impact from Elliot Hewish after playing FF all season. Maybe he'll score this week, maybe next week - probably neither, but no one can really be sure.
Brady Bunch coach Callum Reid has taken the finals approach very seriously- even taking the time out of his busy life (read: sorting his cabbage patch kids into ranks of seniority) to turn up to training this week. Onya Cal.

Rumour has it that Simon Ritchie has recruited a male physio to take over the C-grade for finals, reducing game-day distractions exponentially. Ash Ireland immediately pulled a desperate Dan Trezise into a deep meditation session to 'will' the coveted female trainer back into her old role. Simultaneously Tom Milton has left the C-Men citing an absence of motivation. 

If you have time this weekend get out to watch the A grade out at Sacred Heart playing in what is their version of an elimination final to avoid relegation.

Blacks Look-A-LIKES

An uncanny resemblance here. Smelts is always that bloke who is waiting for a mate - but a mate of the tinder realm.

Erin "George" Hennessy definitely channels the cheerful spirit of the great Sharon Strezlecki.

Below is South Australia’s scientist of the year – and no that’s not Mike “Jamesy” James. But on the topic of Jamesy - Ever had beer with Jamesy - he provides his “expert” opinion. Rumor has it that Jamesy was second in line for Dennis Cometti’s special comments job. The reason he didn’t make the cut was because his inability to make special comments. Love your nevertheless Jamesy!

B@stards take “ironic” approach to SAAFL’s inaugural LGBTI round
The widely under-publicized gay pride round of this year’s belter SAAFL season has been labeled a wild success by team geriatric, Alex “PC Police” Mann, after Uni’s unusual approach to spreading awareness.
Responding to the League’s call to “stop bagging out the gays”, interim coach, Johannes “Hate-Crime” Van Reesema called for the fellas to summon their inner gay-basher for Saturday’s Round 17 clash against PAOC at Park 9.
“Let’s smash those f@ggots”, Van Reesema could be heard screaming, spittle gathering in the corners of his mouth.
Many of the team’s freshly post-pubescent players were seen to titter nervously at the suggestion they might finally be getting some skin-to-skin contact, even if it was in the middle of a game of footy.
“It is LGBTI round, after all,” said Seagrim, who, hoping to dispel the anti-intimacy aura that had seemed to nag him ever since he was snapped at the Blacks Ball inexplicably wearing an “I love F@nny” t-shirt, had trimmed his hair just for the occasion. A wise man once asked, “Why do Italian men wear gold chains?” The answer of course, is so they know when to stop shaving. It’s a proverb Tom “Papa Giusseppe” Seagrim could have kept in mind when visiting the hairdressers this week as he rocked up to the game with a haircut that started around the ears and seems to have extended over the shoulders only to end somewhere near the upper buttock.
After Van Reesema’s earlier call to get up close and personal, it was no surprise the B@stards came out full of vigour.Brad “#1 in tackles” Hill took the call to heart, aggressively hugging as many opposition footballers as he could from the first bounce. Henry “more-nuts-and-bolts-than-a-hardware-store” Ball was an influential presence across the day despite an early scare after he defied modern medicine by menstruating heavily from his left eye-socket. What could only be described as a sanitary pad was attached to his forehead for the remainder of the contest. Not known for letting teammates down, fellow B@stards Mugford, Arnie, and JMO dutifully sympathy-injured themselves in a bold gesture of stirring team solidarity. Miller-Owen probably taking the idea a little too far and ending up in hospital. (JMO – haven’t head anything about you since you left the ground. Are you still alive??)
Alex “Master” Bate added more points to his B&F tally after another trademark concentrated individual performance. “I do my best work solo”, quipped a candid Master to a blushing B@stards side, generally uncomfortable with expressions of male sexuality.
While many of the players forgot that this week, they were to take an ironic approach to LGBTI issues, Sam “Newman” Arnfield was not so easily distracted. In a groin-stirring three quarter time address, Arnfield channeled his inner Footy Show host, declaring both the home and away sides “private school P00fters” that had something to prove. It was a confusing time for those in the club trying to keep track of the B@stards approach to this important social issue. Were we angry at the other club because, as Van Reesema had alluded to earlier, they were gay? Or were we angry at ourselves for being gay, and that the only way to overcome this horrid bout of ‘the gayness’ was to smash other gays? An introspective PC Police Inspector Mann pondered this from the pine.
Faraaz “Best BOG not to get BOG” Jamal went about winning every tap, while most of his teammates ensured PAOC were able to stick to their gameplan of clearing the ball quickly out of defence and adding to their score. In the end, just a handful of those forays were enough to seal the deal for the PACmen, as the final score read more like a game of Netty than Footy. PAOC proved maybe there’s something in this whole “training” caper after all, eking out a 25 point victory over the conflicted B@stards side.
“Take Dolce and Gabbana for example...” began a persistent Johannes ‘Eric Abetz’ Van Reesema, as the B@stards retired to the change rooms in search of wet towels and wet buttocks.

Fritch Mancis does Kuala Lumpur

The infamous Fritch Mancis – well known for his exploits with the opposite sex and the fact he is one accident away from being a super villain – is off to conquer Kuala Lumpur. The Australian embassy has issued a predator warning to local authorities. We wish Fritch all the best with the scholarship mate – sky’s the limit.

Flick of the Week

She's out of my League

Birthday boy Sam Penniment was exposed as a serial creepy kisser yesterday as posts flooded his facebook wall of him in an array of compromising positions. Two things we learnt from this fiasco:

1) Sammy has hooked up with more girls than Jimmy Mader has years of age (I've done Calculations, its around 1,935).

2) His kissing technique involves never breaking eye contact, making sure even the briefest of moments aren't lost to a blink.

Uploaded was a picture (slightly edited below) of what seems to be Sammy enjoying the fruits of a Pembroke football captaincy - That my friends is how a 10 goes for a 5, just add the words 'football captain'.
