Re: Things that you rate!

Last night at our end of season Cricket Club presentations I was awarded with Life Membership of my beloved North Haven CC. It's a great honour to be recognised, I absolutely love my club and being the Cricket Nuffie I am I absolutely love the game so this means more to me than anyone will ever know.
What's even more special is I've now become one of nine men to become both North Haven Cricket Club and Football Club life members.

Re: 2021 Adel Footy League - Division 6

Well done to Trinity for a comprehensive win today.. but seriously when a **** sideshow Bob uncoordinated **** like Trent Eves gets in the best then you genuinely need to reevaluate you’re life.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19)

Welcome to the latest episode of LOCKDOWN LOTTO.

With the Vid's DELTA strain having a rollicking good time in NSW and Victoria it feels as though South Australia is on the edge of another outbreak and, in turn, swift LOCKDOWN so people it's LOCKDOWN LOTTO time.

2nd September, with cases flying / trucking around us when do you see SA going into a another Stevens mandated / Spurrier led LOCKDOWN?

I'll spin the wheel first.....

September 15th for me.

Good luck everyone!

My guess is next Tuesday the 7th

My guess, no further lockdowns in SA ;)

Re: Australian Domestic Season 2021/22

Second X1 going well against WA but rain over next two days, especially tomorrow, will mean no chance of finishing.

Daniel Drew as captain was 161 not out when declaring, and Corey Kelly made 86 and taken 4/32 so far.

SA 6/428 dec vs WA 6/206.
I saw that Eags. That's a great effort by those two. These are the sorts of players the Redbacks should be putting time into instead of giving preference to recycled interstaters!!

Re: Australian Domestic Season 2021/22

Havent seen any of the dismissals ... sounds like watching a video of my wedding with the ex.....probably won't cost as much

play on roads here
play on pitches with abit of movement else where

Trent Kelly youre not working for the highway department

Been saying this for years, the Karen Rolton pitch and the grade pitches are absolute roads, as soon as we go to WACA, GABBA, Hobart, etc when the pitches do something our techniques are not up to it.

Instead of trying to reduce grade clubs, they should be making all the pitches here more like everywhere else in the country!!

Re: Australian Domestic Season 2021/22

Victoria’s bowling coach complaining to the umpires after play about what we were doing to the ball :shock: All of a sudden we were getting reverse swing out of nowhere, they lose 5/40. They have short memories of what their previous bowling coach David Saker did at Glenelg Oval a few years ago :D Whinging Vics!

It was Mick Lewis (the one who holds the record for worst 1-day Int'l bowling figures) when he rubbed the ball on the asphalt. Pretty ironic that he was the one whingeing!! David Saker was the head coach.....who then went on to be bowling coach at the time of 'sandpapergate'.....

Re: Grade Cricket

Southerns hold on for the draw 9 down to deny Uni a finals spot, just as they did last year against Sturt. West Torrens again sneak into the 4 thanks to that result and their win against Adelaide.

Re: Grade Cricket

Interesting first wicket in the 2nd Grade Women's final - MANKAD!!

Don't see that very often - did not appear to be any warnings given by the bowler leading up to it.

Personally, don't like it. Unless they have been warned twice, then bad luck.

Karma for Glenelg in the end with both their Women's teams losing yesterday :shock:
One warning is enough as far as I'm concerned, being a GF though the non-striker should be more observant to the rules instead of trying to crib.

Re: Port Adelaide 2022

Rory Sloane - "I watched a fair bit of Port on the weekend and they were outstanding......" :shock:

Was he watching the same game as everyone else :shock:
What do you expect him to say?

This, this, THIS!

What do fans actually expect players to say in pressers? Was Sloane going to say "My word they were shit, we're actually a chance to win on Friday night, f*cking funny!" Was Jonas going to say "Our season looks f*cked and the coach will probably get sacked"?

There's a fair gap between being diplomatic and just down right lying.
Rory isnt the most polished media performer, he should have worded that differently. If he said "they were outstanding against Brisbane so we know what they can bring", then that would work.

Re: ATCA

Id like to say well done to Ingle Farm, won all of the big moments across the 2 days and played hard, good cricket. A real credit goes to Sandery and Sandercock especially who bowled with guts and effort needed in these games. Was great to have huge crowds both days, also a thank you to Popey and the farmer supporters who kept it tidy and cleaned up each day where they were based.

To our guys, Tyson Roling again outstanding with the ball and gave it his absolute all, Parton with the bat as well put a strong innings forward.

The difference in the whole game and my M.O.M would be Jhai Baxter, his innings changed not just the momentum at the time, but the whole direction of the game.


We look forward to next season all ready,

Cheers
Marto

Is Baxter the one who was with Port Adelaide last year and start of this season? Bit of a 20/20 sort of batter.

Yeah I reckon, told us afterwards doesnt care who bowls he is trying to hit you for 6 !

Re: Shane Warne dead!

It was good to be there live, we had great seats, basically front on in the MCC members. Terrific atmosphere, and in the main it was all about respect. It's the reason we went. I kind of get where Boon is coming from with his Sam Newman observations....FWIW it really didn't come over that way (to me at least) what I took away from Sam's very small part was Warney took his money more often than not on the golf course. Aaron Hamil spoke well, Warnes father Keith was great. Then there were the kids..... teared up then.
The unveiling of the Shane Warne Stand ended out the night beautifully.
Perhaps the one thing that will stay with me was the "Warnie, Warnie, Warnie" chants on the platform at Jolimont Station. The crowd "singing" as one. Gold.

Re: Shane Warne dead!

Warnie wasn’t perfect and I’m sure he wouldn’t want people to think that.
I had no issue with Sam or what he said.
A small bit of humour was needed from someone
His kids and family are well aware of his antics and it has made him and his legacy what it is.

He barracked for the Saints but he certainly wasn’t a Saint!

So why bring isolation or the form of the team I support into it? Has no relevance.

Re: Australian Domestic Season 2021/22


Spencer got a full contract, as did Buckingham.

Added Thornton and Conway as mentioned, also Ben Manenti (off spinner from Tassie) and Aiden Cahill (allrounder from NSW and AUS U/19's).

Rookie contracts to Isaac Higgins and Harry Matthias.
Yet more interstaters. As mentioned before, this organisation is an absolute joke.
Too lazy and incompetent to develop their own talent so they are now looking for a quick fix by gifting full contracts to interstaters. Johnson deserves one but you now watch him break down after being subjected to the crap fitness regime they have in there. I'm not convinced yet on Lindsay Buckingham, and he won't get a game now anyway as he's behind all the others they've now brought in.
Good luck to young Matthias but clearly he is zero threat to Harry Nielsen's spot so you'd think this is deliberate by Tim Nielsen to protect his son yet again. Barrett has by far been the best keeper batsman in SA but due to him being a threat to Harry he never got a look in. Absolute corrupt organisation with such a s..t culture that they are so much on the nose it's not funny.
How many more games will Liam Scott be gifted? I'm sure Lehmann now has a long term deal as well so Tim can keep looking after his mates!!
No wonder we've been last the past 5 seasons and been crap for a long time and you still have the same people in charge. Unfortunately I fear the new CEO will be hoodwinked by Nielsen as well.
Rant over!!

Re: Grade Cricket

There are so many follow up questions that need to be answered if the vote goes in favour of the Division split. ALL clubs will be trying to recruit to give themselves the best opportunity to finish up the ladder because who's going to want to play at a Div 2 side. It will become infinitely harder for those clubs out of the top 5/6 clubs to ever become competitive with the top group. Where does that leave the metro/regional zones? Does that become a free for all? Does the SACA funding stay the same? Do the Div 1 clubs get more than the Div 2 clubs? To get an opportunity at the next level, do you have to be at a Div 1 club? Would that mean someone with aspirations to play for the Redbacks, let's say Isaac Conway, would he have to leave Port and move to another club? Will they put in place rules around player movement between clubs?

My opinion is, this is their best way of getting what they want while allowing the individual clubs to keep their identities. The top 4/5 clubs will get to play each other every year and there'll be 2/3 teams on the periphery that will get an opportunity each year. I agree that there should be more to just this seasons results to determine the divisions. Club structure, finances, facilities and player development should all be part of the process.

Final thought, I wonder whether this will make clubs look at approaching other clubs to talk about merging???

Re: Australian Domestic Season 2021/22

Shaun Marsh will play on for WA next season, it will be his 23rd first class season. He is still contacted for one more season and he looks set to remain as the stand in captain when brother Mitch is unavailable.

Peter Siddle signed a one year contract extension for Tasmania which will take him into his 16th first class season.

Tim Paine was not given a new contract by Tasmania.

Billy Stanlake has moved to Tasmania.

Victorian Wicket-keeper Seb Gotch has been forced to retire because of a chronic finger injury.

SA could do with Tim Paine......especially if Carey gets more games for Australia.

Comedy Gold - you realize Tim Neilson still gives the contracts :D :D

You are right.

I had a momentary lapse in concentration and thought SA might consider trying to win a game or two.

Went for a walk in the rain to get lunch.. poor homeless man was bin shopping, was asking people walking past for some change, hit me up for some money - had none (who carries cash?!).. poor bloke had some serious speech issues.. so we went and had lunch instead and got him a pack of smokes.

I rate that two of the people who he hit up that brushed him off before me ended up coming back past - one gave him $15 and the other bought him a drink. Restores faith their are still good people out there.

End of the day, what's a few dollars matter when you can go home to the warmth of your house and love of your family.. but you can make an impact on someone doing it tough.

Hate 2 Test series like we have for the Adelaide Test vs West Indies :shock:

We must be giving South Africa some good coin to come, they have always refused to come for Boxing Day Test as they hold their own :shock:

They always used to come up to 2008-09 and when they got uppity (aka better after beating us as we rebuilt) and said were not coming for the Christmas/New Year Tests in your country unless you reciprocate and come for ours.

CA were never going to agree to it hence why last time they were here they played the three tests Nov early Dec.

Fast forward six years they get crowds of two fifths of **** all, they've got no major sponsor and turmoil in the camp all on the backdrop of COVID. So first wiff of some "Essie dolle" they are here quicker than door locking in an Oscar Pretorius toilet....

Re: I need to know....

Miss 19 Y.O daughter messages me in a tither, she has applied for a new job and has had two interviews and got an email today requesting a number of a recent employment referee.

She has become a manager where she works and hasn't told them that she was looking elsewhere, she wasn't really but a job came up and she was asked to apply.

I said to here to just speak to a manager that you get along well with from a different department and point out the sensitivity of the the call to your prospective new HR officer, does this sound like the right advice?
Her manager found out last Thursday and demoted her from 2IC and from managing over the weekends like she has done for the past 18 months.
She got the job.

Tend to agree, if Bailey Smith only gets two weeks, that is an absolute joke.

Didn’t Lachie Whitfield get massive penalty for similar?

Was thinking would be rest of season at least. Seem to be playing the Mental Health card which I hate.
Whitfield got done for dodging a drug test didn't he?
And from memory it was a lot of weeks.

Re: R13 Central v South

I have watched the replay of that deliberate free kick. When first giving the free kick the umpire signals for deliberate. Then when Centrals are arguing on the mark, he changes it to a throw signal. The thing is the umpire is behind him, so I’m not sure how he could tell it was a throw. I couldn’t tell if it was or not watching it and the camera angle is pretty much what the umpire sees as well. So either the umpire realised he made a mistake and changed his decision or he guessed.

What time of game was it?
About 1:51:15 in on SANFLnow.
