Even though they're on the same political team, the gloves were off when Panton Hill's Number 1 ticket holder Danielle Green MP - Member for Yan Yean and Eltham Football Club counterpart Vicki Ward MP for Eltham swapped the political arena for the footy arena yesterday with a bit of friendly fire at our game against the Panthers. Vicki got the bickies in the end, but the big winner was the two teams having a couple of Victoria's top pollies in our corners, and at our games.

🪑ON THE COUCH🛋
Thanks to Valley Rural
In his new weekly feature to help us get to know the players more, last night, host Sam Mont introduced us to Redbacks recruit Benjamin Warren and found out more about him. We now know that Ben doesn't drive and that his special talent is touching his nose with his tongue. Sammy also asked Ben a 'lengthy' question, to which Ben replied it was "for him to know and you to find out". It was a funny first installment, so make sure you get to Thursday night dinner every week to see who Sam Mont has "On The Couch".

Massive props to injured player Jordan Hamilton. Knowing he can’t play for a few weeks, Jordo put his hand up for the urgently needed Reserves Assistant Coach this morning.

🏉VIP GUESTS LAST SATURDAY🏉
Thanks to Lettuce Inn, Hurstbridge
After sitting in the Diamond Creek Football Club trophy cabinet since 2017, now that we're in the same Division again, we played the 'Creekers for the Graham "Spud" Trophy, with VIP guests Spud's extended family on hand for the game, including his parents Ray & Rose, and nephews who play for Diamond Creek. After a hard fought game, the Cannon's presented the trophy to 'Creek Vice Captain Tyler Barnes for his club to care for until our first meeting next season.
🔴W T A F⚫️
Thanks to Sharp Signs
The club made a packet on the gate on Saturday but we don't get it. We don't understand why you'd pay $7 entry to each game, when a seasons ticket is only $60. HELLO.... that's only $3.30 per game. As Dr. Phil would say "WHAT WE'RE YOU THINKING?"
What's even worse, is when we play away, your $7 is going straight to finance our opposition. To quote the doc again "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?" Comment here to become a valued Member and we'll contact you. There's even Members prize draws throughout the year. Become a fair dinkum Redback NOW, and stop balancing the books for our rivals.

😆FOOLHARDY OR FEARLESS😟
Following yesterdays nail biter, we're concerned about our Number 1 ticket holder and all 'round Redback Danielle Green MP - Member for Yan Yean. On a visit to Diamond Creek Hotel today, was our Patron brave and proud to wear her 'Hillers gear, or foolish by risking copping a few lighthearted sledges in Demon territory? Either way it's always great to see Danielle flying the Redbacks flag!
