Re: DRS Farce

I don't think that helps one bit. They just needed to change the procedure of how it's used. Don't assume no spot means no edge and if the technology proves inconclusive don't take a challenge away.

I think ideally you make all bats have some sort of coating that helps show edges up. They say the tape they use dulls the effect, no doubt there's something you can put there to increase the effect.

Re: New preseason format

I quite like it aswell.

- There is plenty of opportunity for clubs to explore new players and gameplans.
- The AFL's desire to have the game brought to regional areas is fulfilled.
- No meaningless trophy at the end of a meaningless tournament.
- Representative footy is back (ok nothing like the Vics v SA), but the chance to watch (hopefully) the best against the best will be a great way to start the season.

Re: HFL Central Division

Your kidding aren't ya? You may as well kill Country Div off now then. And I'm told Uraidla will be ok now fielding their junior sides. Perhaps Lofty should have thought about things 5 or 6 years ago when they went into massive debt purchasing 3 flags. No club in their right mind will allow an 11 team comp.

Re: HFL Central Division

On another note, just heard whispers of a big name appointment as coach of Ironbank for next season...... should be a lot of coverage on Triple M for the Thunderers & will be entertaining for the entire league!
No doubt will bring a lot of coverage to the league .. good appointment by the thunderers :D

Just got wind too. Thought he had a SANFL gig with all the vacancies. Obviously not :shock:

i have my doubts that this could be true. if it is, i ronbank must have more money than sense , cause he wouldnt be cheap and would have to give up his weekend radio work. as i said, sounds a bit far fetched.

Yeah appoint a legend of SA football with AFL experience who has coached in the SANFL and WAFL and has a huge media profile........makes no sense at all :roll: :roll:

Re: HFL Central Division

Facts are lofty are crap in seniors and finished bottom. Loby were too before last year but as no one wanted to come up from country they where lucky for 3 years straight. Just make relegation and promotion compulsory year in year out and then everyone know the rules. Otherwise make a 14 team league with kersbrook, birdwood , nairne up in central as well and tell the others to amalgamate or go elsewhere. Nothing is going to change as the current board shows no leadership and is dictated to by williams and co at the self interested so called big clubs. 1 or 2 clubs are getting sick of it from what I hear and looking for change. It won't take much unfortunately.

They're also Norwood members and are desperate to get Hilly back for Wednesday night target practice with 303's.

Re: Glenelg Senior Coach 2014

MEDIA RELEASE

Dedja set to make his mark at Glenelg

Former Snouts bandwagoner, Dedja, has been appointed to the position as Senior Coach of the Glenelg Football Club for the next three years.

Dedja was appointed by the Glenelg Football Club Board of Directors, following the strong recommendation by the highly credentialed Selection Committee, established to ensure the best possible coach was appointed to steer the club forward.

The selection committee undertook a comprehensive selection process in which Football Director Justin Scripps, Graham Cornes, Peter Carey and President Nick Chigwidden, were unanimous that Dedja was the man to coach the Club in 2014 and beyond, with a focus of recognising and developing our young list and maximizing their potential.

Dedja has SFA accomplishments but the club is broke so thought what the hell.

Dedja's wealth of talking crap at both AFL and SANFL levels, combined with his lack of general knowledge of the game and edumacation gives
the Glenelg Football Club great excitement and positiveness for the immediate and future direction.

This must be a hoax !
:(
Sorry 'Dedj', you're far too honest and way, way over-qualified.
Try the AFL mate !

Re: HFL Central Division

This is the start of the new season. It started the day after the GF. Leaving these issues until after the next calendar year is too late . If you're on a committee you would know this & if you are on a committee & haven't started planning for next year you are way behind.

NO KIDDING - PERHAPS PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN SORTED OUT LAST YEAR

OH WAIT THIS HAPPENED WHEN BIRDWOOD WERE FORCED DOWN AND ALL THE CLUBS GOT TO VOTE ON IT THEN

ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND WE GO - SAME SHIT EVERY COUPLE OF YEARS......................
So it should never be discussed again then if it was voted on 4 years ago. Excellent coz the capping issue was voted on this year so we won't have to hear that sh!t talked about again. That is definitely an issue that goes round & round.

It only goes round and round because it is allowed to by dealing with it late when people are emotional and with an air of elitism.

Of course some issues are continuous and need constant attention. But this is bandaid stuff. Constant attention should be applied rationally, not reactionary.

Everyone knew the state of play round 1 2013.

Now that is doesn't suit some people, we are asked to quickly change to rules.

Just plain arrogant and ignorant.

I don't agree with everyone bagging Mt Lofty for trying to stay up, but seriously the HFL Board has handled this terribly. Why go through the theatrics of last week if you were going to reject them anyway. Will they explain what new information came up in the last week.

It seems there are definitely two sets of rules in the HFL. We all know what will happen next year if they want to come up again and it's IB, TV or Shanty in the gun.

Re: Ashes First Test Live Discussion

Botham summed up the first test pretty well:

"Welcome to Australia. And guess what, there's no red carpet for you to walk on, unless it comes courtesy of blood from a cricket ball," Botham wrote in the Daily Mirror.

"There are some things that never change about coming to this country and I think the current crop have been given a brutal reminder of what it takes to be successful.

Courage and bravery are two traits that are a must here, as well as fight, skill, patience and aggression."

He described England's performance as "ordinary, verging on embarrassing" and added the inability to score more than 200 in either innings was "failure on an epic scale".

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014

What you guys seem to be missing is what is best for the players, not what is best for your selfish attitudes, or the selfish attitudes of the sanfl clubs for that matter.

I would rather see any centrals player playing the highest level, or giving themselves the greatest chance of personal development.

So for younger players that means playing in the AFL environment year round - I think it's a no brainier that this is a good thing for them.

For someone like nutta, opportunity to captain as well as development and coaching roles make it a no brainier for him too. So good luck to him I reckon

I think what has everyone up in arms is that for the first time the paradigm shift that happened 22 years ago is finally codified - the SANFL is primarily a breeding ground for AFL players. I, for one, don't think this is a bad thing, and I don't think it diminishes the importance or the integrity of the league either. It's just different. Once the season is underway I think it will be business as usual, save for the inevitable "OMG the crows reserves are top/bottom"


You're right. Players are much less selfish than fans. Yeah, nah....fan loyalty is the only loyalty left in the game.
