#10 St Francis of the Rising Star


#5772

Derived from “clocking your opponent”


#5773

That is seriously good trivia.
iIRC Perry was “the tarantulo” (as against “tarantula”), for some obscure reason.


#5774

Been overseas the last couple of weeks and after watching the Tigers match live on tv I was only able to see Francis’ highlights against Port rather than live.

Those dukes and reading of the play ability are top notch. The Mcavaney frothing was for once enjoyable. Bring on many years of froth.

Bit disappointed we didn’t bring him in earlier but a salivating end to his AFL season.


#5775

Probably in jest - but derived from turning the clock-counter over on pinball machines.


#5776

Aaron putting Collingwood to the sword.

You absolutely beauty!


#5777

How many clunk Aaron Francis


#5778

Markologist.


#5779

This kid is fking unbelievable. will win a B&F in the next year or two.


#5780

And despite the above comments I’d say it was just a solid competent game by him.

CAN DO BETTER.


#5781

Id just like to say I no longer call him Aaron Francis.

Its Mark.

Mark Francis.


#5782

I will go further

Marky Mark


#5783

Mark is his middle name.

His first name is Intercept.

Ha ha ha.


#5784

Ch7 commentary team said the Pies did a good job of avoiding Francis… and kicked it to Hartley most of the afternoon… I lol’d. Actually.


#5785

Considering he was starring at AFL level last few weeks was always going to have a day out today.

Was very impressive and despite some big physical hits today just kept going


#5786

settle down mate. We’ve got some proven stars already. He has a long way to go to get near their consistency.


#5787

#5788

#5789

The thing I love is that his opponents at all levels are crapping their dacks and repeatedly conceding free kicks in marking contests.


#5790

He has still got more strength to gain,and greater fitness. Im going out on a limb here and saying he could go down as one of our greatest defenders if he does this.

What about that pick up off the ground in the back pocket at full pace?


#5791

Marxist?
