    Have you, like me, picked Heath Shaw, Shaun Higgins and Greg Broughton after you swore to yourself you never would? Have you, like me, picked Travis Cloke the year after he signed a multi-year contract instead of the year before he put pen to paper?

    If you have a history of Sylvias, Kruezers and Gumbletons. If you’ve believed the fluff pieces about Shaun Atley’s midfield role every single year, you might be interested in joining my “The Never Again League”.

    Please feel free to commiserate poor decisions by joining up:

    Yep, he’s “training the house down” – what else do you think he’s going to say when asked?! ;) “Hey Horse, how is Mitchell going this pre-season”… “He’s been shithouse”.

    Sound familiar Warnie? Haha

    Had a go at writing my own team song for laughs. Did it to the tune of Tigerland ofcourse!

    Only took a few minutes to tailor it for the Calvinators, see what he thinks :p

    Oh we’re the Calvinators
    a ***** fury we’re the Calvinators

    In any weather all we ever are is Pigs
    You’ll think think this game is rigged

    When we’re in Junk time, well that’s just fine
    We’ll feed and feed like swine

    Oh we’re the Calvinators
    Soon as our rooks get fat they are ***** gone!

    Like the Swanny of old
    +6’s are gold

    Oh we’re the Calvin, (cal-vins-cap-tains)
    We’re the Calvinators!

    Great work as always lads.. Can almost smell the liniment in the air..

    What about a Calvinator song set to 99 Problems.. Cal-V style..

    If you’re having DT problems I feel bad for you son
    I got ninety nine problems but a captain ain’t one

    I got the DT patrol on the points patrol
    Foes that want ta make sure my loopholes closed
    DT critics that say he’s “DT Cash Cows ”
    I’m from the hood, Warnie? what type of facts are those?
    If you grew up with Sandi and his turf toes
    You’d celebrate the minute you was picking Elliot Yeo
    I’m like “F$#! critics” you can kiss my whole as##hole
    If you don’t like my picks, you can rest Rocky forward?
    Got beef with podcasts if the pirate don’t play they show
    They don’t picks my captains, well, I don’t give a sh#@, so
    DT mags try and use my loophole class
    So coaches can give ’em more cash for donuts, f%$ers
    I don’t know what you take me as
    Or understand the intelligence that Cal-V has
    I’m takings cows to riches, niggas I ain’t dumb
    I got ninety nine problems but a captain ain’t one, hit me

    Ninety nine DT problems but a captain ain’t one
    If you having loophole problems I feel bad for you son
    I got ninety nine problems but a pig up froward ain’t one

      Calvin or Warnie couldn’t care less about our songs, even though we were prompted to get creative.

      • Warnie


        February 25, 2015 at 12:34 pm

        That’s a bit rude – of course we do! Calvin will be reading on for inspiration. Also – we want people to get creative with their own. We’ll play ‘good’ (and appropriate) ones on the podcast.

          February 25, 2015 at 4:09 pm

          Sorry Warnie my bad. I guess we were just hoping Calvin would take one of our songs as his own :)

    I spoke to Alistair Clarkson yesterday and he said my son will spend 5% more time in the midfield this year.

    I would consider this a serious boost in his value, if you take out his injury effected scored last year he will be a top 5 forward

    I spoke to Alistair Clarkson yesterday and he said my son will spend 5% more time in the midfield this year.

    I can also confirm he has recently taken up the Paleo diet, is following the Dalai Lama on twitter and has got a Troy Makepeace style barb wire tattoo on his bicep

    Midfield, Paleo, Dalai Lama and Barbwire…..look out 2015
