    Great Aussie rock band of the 60s and 70s, from Burwood; where I grew up.

    As far as Wests vs Parra games of the 60s; just maybe you were too high on LSD, my friend.:D

    "Friday on my mind" was written about one Friday evening game where Parra put 50 on the hapless Maggies.

    "Sorry" was written after Stevie Wright saw Harry "Bomber" Wells apologise to some Magpies fans after Parra handed them another towelling.

    Did they also write 'Show me the way to Saint Marys' after one such loss? Or 'Show me the way to Saint Vincents' after a particularly violent loss?

    If everybody had it then it would be called ubiquitous sense or universal sense.

    Common means most, but not all, people have it.

    Idiot.

    That is one use of the word 'common'. It can also mean 'of or relating to the community as a whole' or 'belonging to or involving the whole of a community or the public at large' (OED).

    :lol: You never saw Kelly play!.. Grumpy (Hambly) Thirsty (Lynch) Tombstone (Dolton) used to more than match Kelly in 'toughness' stakes.
    In the backs, Bobby Bugden, Leo Toohey Ivor Lingard Barry Rushworth, Fred Pickup, Derek Hallas Col Alterator, Mike Jackson, Kenny Foord and of course Ken (Aka GOD) Thornett were way way better than the Magpies counterparts....Can recall the clashes like they were yesterday...

    Pete, how many grand finals did Parramatta played in in the 60s. Let's see 0, Western Suburbs Magpies - 3 times.

    I did see Kelly play in the late 60s. You don't want me to name the Wests sides of the 60s, because they'll scare the players you named off the page.:cool:

    So is a common market a market for commoners, or a market that is common - i.e a market that appears often?

    That's irrelevant. You were talking about matches between the two teams.

    The Dragons have won more premierships than the Raiders in the past decade but they're still Canberra's bitch.

    I reckon that may well change now the "Super Coach" is in charge.
