Return

Re: Trial Game Week 3 Discussions

I have just returned home from the Centrals v Port Power Reserves Magpies after witnessing an enjoyable 11 goal loss. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank the 6 clubs that voted yes as I now see how this is really good for SA and SANFL football.

Full time professional footballers playing against semi professional players in a semi professional league. Who would have thought what a great idea this was? I'm really looking forward to the season proper now.

I can't decide between 2 events for my highlight of the day. It was either Sam Colquhoun playing against us or seeing dual premiership player and member of a great and legendary Centrals family wearing a Port Magpies Polo shirt and cap. :shock:

I also would like to thank the AFL for ruining the game at every level.

Re: Central v South Post Game

Well done today Dogs snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!
This is the worst Centrals team this century, possibly ever. They are succeeding very well if their mission is to make the other teams supporters very happy. :evil: :twisted:

Now if we can just lose the next 14 games we can win the spoon.

Looking forward to deleting the replay very soon.

Re: Brad Symes Announces Retirement

Yes, all the best Brad have enjoyed watching you play for Centrals, an absolute champion and good bloke too.

I think the club should ask Brad to toss the coin on Saturday so as the supporters can say farewell and thank you to Brad.

Re: Chris Davies departure

Interesting appointment by Port Adelaide, despite criticism over the years Rhode has been one stable element of the football department over the last 5 years that has been critical in turning the on field fortunes of the club around.

Best of luck, Chris.

Oh.....

Grizzle, *negative comment* moan and groan. There, thread kept on track.

Yes thanks Chris for wrecking the great competition that used to be the SANFL, [-X good riddance, oops I meant to say good luck.
I wish you well in your new appointment and hope you do an even better job of stuffing up the Power/Magpies.

yep, went to The Luncheon, took junior, met some legends, ate & drank my fill, then sat at the bar in The Club for the rest of the afternoon, protesting silently.

Just as well Centurion as you wouldn't have got your normal spot due to the presence of the "4,000 " extra supporters promised by the Crows. I couldn't move in front of the grand stand for all the extras that showed up to this game. ;)

Re: R9: Centrals v Adelaide - Saturday 21 May @ My Money Hou



Somebody in the crowd got a warning from security for bagging the Crows. Precious bunch they are.

At 3/4 time in the Reserves Crows went onto ground to have kick and catch I called out "Get off our ground and get out of our League." An official, I think it may even have been the coach responded to me, didn't really hear what it was so I said no AFL in the S.A.N.F.L.

To all West Adelaide supporters
Mark the days on your calendar, only 2 weeks until you play the worst team in the league. You can look forward to an enjoyable day at the football with no opposition and a 5 - 10 goal win. ](*,)

You could pick 21 supporters (male and female) from the crowd put them in WA jumpers and still win!
You are kidding I cannot see us winning a game
You must have 2 dicks you cant be that stupid playing with one

I think u will find most Centrals supporters on this site would fit perfectly in the two dicks theorey

Re: R6 South v Centrals (Saturday 13:10)

Easy to criticise and fashionable to sink the boots in to this particular player. Butch seems to be everyone's whipping boy. A goal is a goal is a goal and is worth 6 points no matter when or how they are kicked. Butch would be in my side every week.
You never criticised him before he played for Centrals ? Yes a goal is a goal and is worth 6 points. :shock:

He always seemed to play well against us and kick goals. I was happy when he was recruited to play for Centrals.

Now you mention it, does anyone else see the irony of a ‘Bring you dog to footy’ day, and Unley Oval :lol:

Speaking of irony . There is a sign on the fence at the northern entrance at Elizabeth Oval that says no dogs allowed.

It seems the team took notice of it as the Bulldogs certainly didn't turn up today. :evil:

Re: Norwood v Centrals Fri 1920

I've only seen the first half and a bit, but not getting carried away with the win. We can be very dangerous when things are on our own terms, but Centrals (unusually for them) really allowed it by being below par with their pressure early and their skill errors that prevented scoring opportunities their way regularly lead to scores in our favour.
Those skill errors are consistent each week.

Central players don't seem to have any problems hitting a player on the chest lace out with either hand or foot when they are wearing the opposition jumper! :evil: :(

Re: Centrals vs West Richmond oval 14/7

Well done West too good.

I can't believe how much joy Centrals bring to people every week, only problem is it is the other team's players and supporters. I can' remember what it's like to enjoy a game of football (or red rover all over as it is these days) including the last 2 wins which were ugly horrible games.

Anyone who likes a bet, put as much as you feel comfortable gambling with on Adelaide to record their only win of the season next week against Central at Elizabeth, 5 goals +.

Remember gamble responsibly and you heard it here first.

PS. In fact 5 games left in this horrible season bet on whoever Central play by at least 10 goals every week and you will end up in front (Adelaide, Sturt, Norwood, Port, Eagles.)

Re: Centrals vs C$&@s at My Money Oval

. Surprised Butch has been named, he was hobbling noticeably late last week.

Just because he has been named doesn't mean he will play. Our selectors have a habit of naming players that have no intention of playing. i.e. Trent last week. It really annoys me as it only fools us supporters and doesn't affect aour opponent who usually know any way.

Re: Round 4

Interesting stat from last round, not one team that won the game (or drew) won the inside 50 count.

Three of the four losing teams won the Inside 50s, overall possessions and Clearances! (The Eagles won inside 50s but not the Possession count or clearances).
Considering the importance that coaches put on Inside 50s and Clearances this is intriguing.

No offence N this just seems to prove all this Offal (AFL) and Champion Data stuff is BS. To me the only stat that matters is the winning score.

Re: Sturt v Centrals Sun 1410

A bit of Mr. Magoo positive thinking. I just realised Centrals can still make the finals. It usually takes 10 wins or even if you say 11 wins like last season, they only have to win 9 of the last 10 remaining games and make up percentage (because we have the lowest percentage in the League). :D

We only need to win 3 quarters each game by a big margin given we always have at least 1 goalless quarter.

Re: Round 18 - Central District v Powereserves

What a PRICK of a season, so glad it is finally over. Today's game typified the whole season, especially when the final quarter went 32 minutes and made us suffer as long as possible to the bitter end.

Perfect example of why there should be no AFL in the S.A.N.F.L..

End of football for the year as far as I'm concerned, zero interest in S.A.N.F.L. finals.

Re: Glenelg V Port Grand Final

Aidyn Johnson can only be replaced by an AFL player, according to Lokan at the press conference. That leaves Frederick, Pudney and Grundy as options.

So the SANFL forces the AFL clubs to play 4 top ups in the finals so they're not "too" good, but they're not allowed to play more than 4 top ups if there are 17+ AFL players available. Makes sense. More than 4 players actually trying to win is too much of an advantage I guess.

If you don't like it, there's the door and take the Crows with you.
