    So while most of us were getting excited about the start of the season our resident Junkie Jim the Jailbird, the guy who would like to break into your house and steal your tv and toaster, Mickey Lane is at it again. Here is his latest beauty.

                          I grew up in Paddo too, Stewart St , I think we worked out I am about 10 years younger than you Stephenj , I hated when my father sold the property there, he had a handshake deal with a person for $29,000 for the property and then the owner of the Dunbar Hotel offered him $50,000 but my father never went back on the original hand shake deal, we moved out NYE 1970, in hindsight my father said he should have never sold the property and just rented it our when we moved to Kingsford, Prices in Paddo went through the roof not long after, we had a free standing terrace with two street frontages, 4 garages and 3 flattettes in the backyard, yep the worst decision my father ever made selling Paddington.

                            I was born in PNG, my whole family came back to Australia in 1965 where we ended up buying a place in Waverley/Bronte and settled there. My dad who was originally from Willoughby was a fanatical Norths supporter and he would drag us to North Sydney Oval every weekend to watch his Bears go around but after a while he got a bit sick of the travel as he didn't have a car and lugging 3 boys around was proving tricky so the next weekend Norths were playing Easts at the Sports ground so we all went along, I think my dad decided that Easts and the sports ground would be our team and venue of choice.

                            1966 comes along and off we trot to the sportsground to watch our new team, the mighty Roosters. Mighty? well in 66 we were winless so we didn't witness one Rooster victory but Easts were a young team with a lot of promising juniors namely John Peard, Barry Reilly and Kevin Junee. We had some other good players in rep centre Ron Saddler and Terry Matthews but what we needed was a new coach with fresh ideas.....Enter Jack Gibson and for the 67 and 68 seasons we had the best defense in the comp and as a result we were able to figure in the finals for those years, fast forward to 1974 and Jack Gibson is back as head coach of a side which included Big Artie, Ron Coote, John Brass, Mark Harris, Russell Fairfax, Johnny Mayes and many other stars.

                            What a magical 2 years I enjoyed. I was a permanent attendee in the years at the sports ground and the SCG which was our second home and still is today. My memories are of the smell of dencorub coming from the dressing room and the the sound of the players getting ready for the game, in those days the dressing rooms at the sports ground had open air vents and you could hear them. The sight of Artie covered in vaseline leading them out and the sounds of their steel studs on the concrete and running through the Arties army hoop still lingers with me today, best of all was the sight of red, white and blue flags waving after the definite victory that had come the tri colours way again, and the subsequent charge onto the field after the hooter to pat our heroes on the back not to mention the goal kicking practice on the ground after the players were gone, They were really great times.

                            I have a lot to thank my dad for and one of those things was sacrificing his support for Norths and enabling us to grow up Rooster tragics. I feel our current team could be the best since those magical days and I can't wait to watch them evolve. As the late great Ray Stehr said Easts To Win.

                              Ray I have a similar story to yours, I was in Port Moresby for a number of years, and returned to Sydney in 1965 to go to high school, then returned to PNG, my father was the Manager of the Burns Phillip supermarket at Boroko, for many years, if you know it.

                                What a great thread ...

                                I grew up in BJ, within the sound of the pokies of the League's Club, but my dad wasn't into sport, so the Roosters wasn't a family thing for me. Still, great to hear other people's stories.
