I went and saw the stage show ” Barassi ” at the weekend .Followers of  VFL / AFL football are familiar with this name . What prompted me to go was seeing Ron Barassiwalking along the beach path at Elwood beach with a few of his pals . He had a determined stride and had raised a sweat on the cool autumn morning . The show encompassed his life achievements in football , including playing and coaching Melbourne Football Club , his  secession to Carlton , premiership victory at North Melbourne and trailblazing at the Sydney Swans . Many vintage football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , were used in the production , well loved relics of a golden past and as tribute to a dead set footy legend .

Elsewhere Barassi ‘s first team the Demons were thrashed by his second the Blues . Perhaps the Dees need some Barass magic at the moment ! Saints run of losses continued , as did the Lions , Suns , Tigers , GWS , Crows and Bulldogs . Bombers and Cats rule on top of ladder with no losses followed by Power , Swans and Hawks with only one loss ,then come  Freo , Magpies and  Blues taking up remaining spots in the eight .
