Good Movies

Seems the ratio of crap:good movies increases every year ... From memory the most enjoyable I've seen this year were The Departed, Running Scared, The Big Nothing, Blood Diamond.

Anyone get any recommendations for good movies in the action, thriller, suspense mould ... Or even a good comedy (actually saw Knocked Up and Superbad too and didn't mind them)?

Re: Nathan Bassett

If he didn't sign it, it would be considered up for negotiation still. If he told them he'd sleep on it, they have every right to change it when he comes back to them.

LOL You'll go a long way in the business world :lol:

If two parties thrash out at the negotiation table and come up with a set of conditions and level of remuneration that is agreed upon, then the paperwork presented is significantly different, you consider that good business practice?

Re: Port Adelaide 2013

I see Port will be hosting the first AFL game at Adelaide Oval against the crows

Yes and on 5AA the world is ending and Trigg is really dissapointed, but I didnt think it was going to matter that much. I mean Both SA teams are playing there there day/night.

Might be just me.

It's pretty funny listening to all the whinging .. FFS both teams will still host a Showdown and play the same number of games there

Re: Rumours and Player Movement Discussions for 2014

Webb and Duldig? You reckon they'd be part of a 'golden era'?

I was originally going to write "and the more than handy Kirkby, Webb and Duldig", as a second-tier group, but changed it.
And, yeah, I'd like to see Webb develop into a key forward role as I think he could make a very good fist of it.

Kirkby was awful this year, and has started going to ground way too often in contested situations. If i had a $ for everytime I heard someone yell out "keep your feet Kirkby" i'd be rich

He's overrated. A decent player who's had the ability to deliver a lot more than he has.

Re: Adelaide Oval - NEW Home of SA Footy

This is Adelaide Oval not Adelaide Crows Oval. It is for ALL South Australia not just two football clubs and a few cricket matches.
If the SA govt. put so much of our tax dollars into this venue we should use it for every possible venue .... soccer .... rock concerts .... rolling stones ..... international knitting championships does not matter. We need to generate revenue on OUR investment.

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: Someone Recruits Triple Magarey Medalist?

He really shouldn't be going anywhere, North have botched this one badly
How so?

Offered an amount markedly reduced from his previous deal, which he accepted, then when it came time to sign the fee had been significantly reduced again. Poor form.

Not disputing the other points you've made, imho North looked far more dangerous last season, but still think they've insulted a club great through this process.
So North have botched it because of figures a Norwood supporter has heard or read somewhere?
Norwood must have botched it too since they've turned him down.
Apologies if you work for North Adelaide or are in fact Jimmy Allan but from your lack of discussion about other issues I assume you aren't.
Time to get back on your fence JK.

No problems mate, you don't have to believe it - It's only 1 side of the story anyway. There's the on the fence version for ya.

No problems mate, you keep the blind faith in your club that has served you so well and reflect upon how well we botched the last game of the season. There's the other one. ;)

Re: Norwood Recruit Triple Magarey Medalist James Allan

With Norwood able to recruit just two players from outside the club ‘s promotional zone due to penalties for breaching the salary cap , Ross said addressing the midfield was the priority.

FFS, we didn't breach the salary cap, we weren't even close to being over the salary cap.

Yes we did. Didn't exceed the cap, but we breached the policies in place.

Re: Essendon 2013

FFS why is any of this Andy D's fault.
This has all been brought about by the conduct of the Essendon FC and in particular Hird and Corcoran. They should never work in the industry again just like Dank and Robinson.
Dr Reid should also be struck of the medical register, he has the ultimate responsibility in all of this.
If he wasn't across it all he is not fit for duty.

Just remove EFC from the comp and bring in Tassie

Don't think anyone will argue with Hird's role in all of this, IMHO he needs to be removed from the game.

But Andy D also has to go .. He tipped the Bombers off, clearly wants to avoid court and in particular the witness box for the scandalous details that would emerge/be confirmed, oversee's a poorly managed deal that prevents Hird being paid for season 2014, then re-negotiates a deal that allows exactly that!

He's been involved in too many shady backroom deals on this one and is playing his part in bringing his own competition into disrepute.

Re: Who have Norwood screwed over more ????

they havent screwed any one. they have done what they think was the best for the norwood fc. i cannot give an opinion if they ate right or wrong without any of the facts
all i can say is
"Norwood for premiers 2014"

I'm fairly certain they made it clear they were against AFL reserves side in the SANFL. They went back on there word. To me, thats unforgivable. This is a reason that my club no longer exists.

Re: The Magpies Are Now The AFL Power Reserves

Are we including all reserves footballers for all clubs in the Iist, because Joe Bloggs has left Centrals to a division 182 club in the ammo league

He'll get picked up by the Port Awesome Sooper Dooper Academy and transformed into the world's best footballer I'm sure.

Yep but unfortunately for them he gets picked up with selection number 7 in the draft by GWS and goes on to win two brownlow medals and they never get to see the bloke play a game in the pretty teal

So, you acknowledge there is no direct benefit for Port Adelaide yet there could be immense benefit for Junior Bloggs?

Excellent, then you can all mind your own business and let us get on with ours. ;)

Well your "business" does generally have ramifications for all other clubs in the state ;)

It's not good, and you make a fair point .. Always disappointing to lose a quality player, but for some reason we really struggle (particularly our media) to build a bridge and get on with things in this state, even though all clubs across the country have felt the sting of it.

Complaining over something like Tippett leaving is like complaining about bad umpiring .. It's futile and does nothing to help get on with things, a pointless exercise.

I don't think putting a bid in can be considered trying so hard. you couldn't even succeed with the same team that beat us 5-1.

Sorry, just pointing out another victory that went begging for you ... Different keeper, but I guess you'd need an idea to notice

Oh wow one player. Glad we didn't get Saurez can't even score against a team higher then 5th.

Lol yep coz a keeper isn't an important player .. I'm glad you didn't get Suarez either, beautiful assist for Sterling to nail our 3rd against you at Anfield. You might have missed it being a fair weather supporter

Re: Demetriou to stand down after 2014 season

I know some think he is responsible for the SANFL and wafl direction, but I have only heard him say changes are up too the relevant leagues and have nothing to do with the afl.

Which is mostly correct, as all leagues have to accept responsibility for their own backyard, buck stops and all that.

But naturally what happens at the top will filter down and have an effect on supporting/lower leagues. The SANFL several times found themselves with a gun to their head given the promises and threats related to funding from the AFL, which sits at an amazing disparity with other states, regions and area's of development. Reduction in transfer $$ income etc. So Vlad has had an involvement, whether he cares to admit it or not. But at the ed of the day his primary/only concern had to be for the body which he was employed to oversee.

I not a fan of the bloke and I think he's botched a few things toward the end of his tenure, but I agree with GrahamL - From the Charter given to him from his employers I would suggest he has been an outstanding success.

Re: Port (Power Reserves) 2014

It comes down to commitment to the cause. The PAFC will lose credibility with their community involvement if it becomes obvious they are not committed to SANFL success. EVERY word that has come out of Port Adelaide has stood firm on that commitment. Energy Australia upped their financial package on the basis of that commitment.

Must admit, I agree with this. I can't see Port ever going in anything without wanting to win it, their supporters wouldn't stand for any other attitude.
