Re: R8 - WWT Eagles v Sturt @ Woodville

I thought the Eagles dominated the first 3 quarters and should have been up a little more than they were. The last quarter was totally Sturt everywhere except on the score board. I can not recall the Eagles in the Sturt back 50 area. The Eagles defense played good wet weather footy. It is their strong point this year. Thompson, Rakiwasi and Goldy have added to the defense. Wunke showed just how deadly he can be with the opportunities he had.
Crowd according to Advertiser 2830. Must have all been under cover.
A slight negative was the clash of the 2 blue jumpers. The Eagle had their special commemorative jumper with white shorts.

Thought the game was even. We just had a bit more talent when needed and a coaching move in the 3rd quarter of bobby into the forward lines proved a winner. I will never underestimate the Dogs even when their results are not as previous seasons. They are a great club. Was chatting to a few doggy supporter in the cricket club.

Re: The never ending No AFL in the SANFL whinge thread

I have not thought about it much until this week. This season is a farce. Each team has a bye which I thought would disappear. 18 games! why not just back to the old days where we played a staggered minor round, 22 games. There's no value for the season ticket. Why does the SANF allow games at Alberton make them equal to the Crows. Let the local clubs have a second home game. The admin of the SANFL is destroying its own comp.

Re: R3: Eagles v Adelaide - Sunday 10 April @ Maughan Thiem

I rolled up on Sunday expecting a good game despite the Eagles poor performance the week before. The Eagles first half was very good. They matched the Crows all over the field in general play but as mentioned before, over did the handball. The ratio should have been reversed. They need to fix this up asap.
My first thoughts of when the teams lined up was the massive size of the Crows compared to the Eagles players. The Eagles defense was undersized and yet performed well. In the second half the fitness and size were he major contributing factor. The Crows captain Carey impressed me. He's a big unit and looks like he could play a higher level. Westies will be ruing the loss of Jono Beech. I'm sure he will get an AFL game .

The free for the Eagles were because of the fierce tackling, one of the real positives Godden has instilled. One thing about the against frees is whether they include the frees for out of bounds. This has cost the Eagle in all their matches this year where they do not hit the player and the ball just goes out untouched. The frees for and against ratio would look worse if you take these out.

Re: R17 - Glenelg v Norwood @ Glenelg Sunday

We should never have been in a position for an umpire to decide a match.
But the last two bullshit frees to Rioli sadly highlight the standard of umpiring in the SANFL.
I'm devastated by the result, but I might be more devastated by my realisation the SANFL is dying.

That's the worst crowd number I've ever been a part of. Somehow the numbers will be fudged to save the SANFL from total embarrassment but the 938 at Noarlunga puts this crowd to shame. 800 if lucky.
Norwood's front running fans given up and Glenelg supporters knowing their club is on death's door not bothering to turn up.
Sad situation all round.

A bit harsh. Arctic weather, live TV and lots of AFL on TV. Why would anyone come out. I must say the free at the end was harsh considering the condition. Even if the free was there, the good umpires have a feel for the game at crucial times. No one would have complained with a ball up.

Re: The never ending No AFL in the SANFL whinge thread

Its a sad state of affairs what is happening at the SANFL. The management of the SANFL that once owned the AFL teams is now a rubber stamp for them. Once local players drafted went back to play for the local clubs and their salaries were carried by the AFL teams. Now as rookies, they move to the AFL teams free of charge. These players in reality will not play much if any AFL but will play against their local clubs. The Port Magpies are totally an AFL side but through some wheeling and dealing do not pay a fee to the SANFL but enjoy all the benefits. Our SANFL pays for under 18 and under 16 state coaches that develop player for the AFL. Our club pay out of their own pockets to develop players and supply various levels of competition only for the players to leave for peanuts to the AFL. Our State government bank rolls the PAP and sponsors the academies but what does it do to help the local league and country leagues.
The AFL throws buckets of money into the Vic U18s as well as GWS and the Suns but very little into grass roots. Until the PAP, the AFC and AFL take more Fiscal responsibility this thread will never end.
You mean how port forgo their voting rights, and share of AAMI stadium being sold fund?

Let alone how no one would be interested in televising the SANFL if it wasn't for the reserve sides.

Sounds like you're all for AFLSA, I know I am.
Are you saying PAP was entitled to voting and a share of AAMI ?
Doesn't the SANFL pay channel 7 to televise local football.

Not happy the Anzac day match at Unley and it also should be a TV match. I know it clashes with the AFL but so does playing at Unley. I would have preferred AO. Have we bent to the powers that be or finances ? The SANFL requires tradition and an add on to celebrate the day and respect the people that go into the city.
Was it played at AO in 2016 Goddy?

Yeah it was and barely attracted 3000 fans.

I don't think the crowd size is important. The 2 grand finalists should play at AO regardless on Anzac day .

Re: Falling Attendances

I wonder what the point of this thread is about. Yes crowds are down at all clubs. I don't think there is much that can be done. All clubs work tirelessly but the crowds have gone to the AFL. We need to accept that. We at the Eagles have a hard core group there most weeks but I doubt too many newcomers are regulars. I know they are always trying to get new comers to the home games. We need to congratulate the tireless volunteers for what we have. Some of the fixture timings have been poor against AFL games. I always buy a seasons pass but pick and choose games to go to, Now with the digital pass I may go to less away games. Just me.

Re: Round 10

Could S Summerton win the league and reserves Magarey Medal in the same year? Playing B Grade today and piling up big stats in 1st 1/4.

20 disposals in the first half
Keeps this up and he'll earn himself a place in the Magpies league side.

S Summerton 27 kicks 9 Handballs 36 Disposals 10 mark. These figures suggest he is ball hungry. Not enough handballs. Needs to play more B Grade until he becomes more team orientated.

Re: Round 10

Crowd at Unley was definitely less than the Norwood game, so the guess of 3250 is probably around the mark.
Great win today and great tackling. Port Power's depth would have to be questioned a bit if they don't have injuries and can't play their captain and still lose.
They are actually weaker playing 21 AFL listed players than if they have 1 or 2 top ups. The unco teenages that make up the last couple of spots are nothing compared to having guys like Summerton and Sharrad in there side.

Lets get real about it. Port and the Crows specifically asked for stand alone sides so that all their players can play in the same side with a common coaching pattern. Port were handed a couple of bonuses in getting an additional side as an academy side (who knows what that means) and home matches. If they had the same deal as the Crows Summerton and Sharrad would be playing country footy. They should not be using their reserves to win premierships.

Central play North, Norwood, West and the Eagles. If they win 3 and the Bays loose all then percentage. I would think the Eags will go in cautious for the last game. Long shot I know, maths possible.

Adel play Glenelg, North, Eagles and South so could easily displace the Bays all depending on this week.

Re: 2018 Broadcast Coverage

News of the Eagles match followers dropping from 4000 in 2012 to 1500 is shocking,
especially for such a highly successful club.
Note the average member age is 56 years.
Interest in the SANFL continues to diminish by the year.
The SANFL has got to do a lot lot better in everything they do.
ps
Bring back radio broadcasts.
Have a good look at programming,byes and split rounds,
only 18 games in 23 weeks of footy!
The season only goes for about 6 months yet most clubs are struggling but are closed for business for 1 month (2 months if they miss the finals).
Give the followers and members what they want,
games of footy to watch not reasons to defect to other sports and competitions.
If lots more promotion of the league compotition is not forthcoming guess what the attendance numbers will be going in 2018.
Not to mention club's membership numbers!

Good write-up Vale Park
Looking at the Eagles financials, the loss in membership fees from the previous year equates to their financial loss for this year.
Like your point on the seasons length. Clubs have basically nothing happening in the longer off season. Have we reduced our season length to accomodate the AFL sides and their requirements at the end of the season.

Re: R3 Port v WWT

Good luck to the WWT midfielders with Powell-Pepper in the centre square.
So he has only been dropped and not suspended?

The statement reads :

Port Adelaide midfielder Sam Powell-Pepper has received a one-game sanction imposed by the club’s leadership group for breaking team rules last weekend.

It has been established that Powell-Pepper was intoxicated and broke the playing group’s time curfew on Sunday morning.

The sanction means Powell-Pepper will miss Port Adelaide’s Round 4 clash with Essendon this Sunday at Etihad Stadium.

The AFL is continuing its investigations into an alleged incident involving Powell-Pepper in an Adelaide bar last Sunday morning.

These investigations are ongoing and the club will be making no further comment until they are completed.

From which I ascertain he's only been prevented from playing AFL football this weekend.

I have no issue with that. If Norwood can play some-one out on bail why not SPP. :D

Re: Port Adelaide 2018

Should Dixon's form come into discussion

Dixon 13 goals 18 behinds from 14 matches and 57 marks. Gives away a lot of frees
His ruck work is ordinary.
Jack Watts was dropped and has similar stats. 13 goals from 11 matches and 45 marks.
Just asking.

His discipline is an issue for mine. There is a fine line between imposing a physical presence and giving away dumb frees, and he crosses that line far too often for mine.

Of course Port fans would love him to translate those "nearly" performances (that Boon spoke of) into complete games, by clunking these grabs and converting set shots.

Can't read too much into his numbers as a 2nd ruck.

If only other key forwards in the league were judged similarly

Quit the faux toughness and focus on contesting packs, clunking grabs and kicking goals (all of which he did in the 2nd half of last weekend) and he will silence the critics pretty quickly. I am far from a Tex fan, but his 2nd half on Saturday was magnificent. Exactly what you expect of your CHF.

Surely he gets games or at the very least a fine and so should his club

Not sure where to put it but Seb Guilhas has been suspended for 3 games for his Facebook rant.


Woodville-West Torrens ruckman Seb Guilhaus has been suspended for three matches after a SANFL Tribunal hearing at Adelaide Oval on Wednesday night.

Charged with bringing the game into disrepute following comments made on Facebook in the wake of the Preliminary Final, Guilhaus pleaded guilty to the charge which was heard before SANFL Tribunal panel Chairman Ian White.

Guilhaus’ three-match penalty ensures he will be ineligible to play SANFL or in any SANFL Affiliated League.

So Seb Guilhaus receives a bigger suspension than NA received for "not playing fairly'. :shock:
