Re: Port Adelaide 2017

I''ll be surprised if we beat Adelaide, I expect to beat Collingwood and Gold Coast and with the Bulldogs game in Ballarat who knows.
Coll & GC are two games i thought Port would/should win.. but drop one of those and things could be very interesting!

Out of curiosity, what would Port fans consider a better outcome - finish 4th and play the Crows 1st final, or finish 5th/6th and host a home final?

Finish 4th, get a double chance and possibly go straight to a prelim or get a home semi final rather than a best case scenario of playing an away semi.

Bit of a no-brainer to any team in the comp

Ex Crow & Blue Laurence Angwin an in for Renmark??

Surprised he didn't sign for Lyrup really after his illustrious off field career...

Still be A grade? Mid 30's these days? Renmark would have to be pushing the points for recruits now? Fair few ins that are apparently A grade standard..... If the recruits are as good as what I am hearing, Rovers could give North & Roo's a real challenge for 2nd spot


The Rovers are just about premiership favorites every year in the Pioneer

Re: Riverland Football Chatter

What's everyone's thoughts on the front page spread in the pioneer about Berri? Surely u honour the Anzacs on your front page especially on anzac day. Disgraceful shit by the Pioneer and piss poor comments by the RFL Chairman too.


Yep, haven't seen that kind of coverage about Renmark over the years when they have been shit. It's been all about how good they will be in the next 2-3 years with all their gun kids yet year after year they have been very poor. When is the last time Renmark made finals? It isn't 09 when they won the flag is it?

Re: Riverland Football Chatter

Hearing a few more IN's could be on the way for Berri before the cut off, possibly just in time for the Fisher cup.

BC you hearing much down your way?

Anthony Karner being named as one of them so not sure of the quality. But end of the day, all about trying to have some depth & getting good numbers out on Saturday in the B's & A's.

Spoke to a few people from the club yesterday and it's amazing what a week can do!

Looks like they are back on track. They have written this year off and already concentrating on next year trying to get as many locals back as possible.

All of this could have been avoided if the committee had the balls to move Lefty on last year. But that's what happens when half the committee are family and friends. Coincidentally, those supporters of his are gone now as well.

They have one person left to move on now, but that will only be done if they have a new person come into the club

Re: Port Adelaide 2017

So how many games have you watched of other teams Morrell?

My guess is not many, yet you are arguing that if only we watch paddy more that we would see how good he is.

Classic supporter bias. You are arguing he is more important to port than what other players are to their teams. Which may be true. But that doesn't automatically make him all Australian

Bit rich coming from you regarding supporter bias!
He once again proved on Sunday he is the best ruckman in the comp at the moment.

IMO he should have got nothing, but i just can't work out how they have decided that it is worthy of a fine. Like it is one way or another, not in between. Or have they just given him something for the sake of it to keep the Dogs happy?

Re: Finals Week 1

I didn't study tonight's game as much as what I normally do, due to it being over early, but did I miss something re Jacobs performance. Mumford beat him in the middle comfortably. Yes Jacobs covered him around the ground, but I thought he got smashed in the middle, just that Mumford was useless with his ruck work and kept feeding it to the Crows midfield. Reminded me of Lobbe in 2015 against Geelong at AO. Happy to be proven wrong as I didn't watch the game comprehensively especially after half time

Re: 2017 Off-Season

I like to think I’m usually pretty socially progressive but transgender athletes in sport is something I haven’t formed a solid opinion on.

If it is something they had from birth then I think it’s fine (ie castor semenya) but athletes getting a sex change to compete is murkier imo.

The fact that she is physically bigger and would he dominant clearly comes into it too - if she was 5 ft tall I doubt it would be as big of a deal. But it should be the same “deal”

Hence I don’t know what my position is. Leaning towards they shouldn’t be allowed but It’s not something I’ve read up much about

Exactly the same possie as Benny. A lot of clarity needed on the subject and I'm not educated in this area to really form an opinion on

Re: Port Adelaide 2017

IMHO only, exceptional trade period for Port .. For what they've given up compared to what they're getting - 3 Bonafide proven players at their best, whilst discarding deadwood (harsh term, no disrespect intended to Trengove, Impey, Ah Chee and probably Lobbe and maybe Young). Whether these players deliver (as there's never any assurances with ANY player) only time will tell, but there's some bargains there I reckon. Still seem potentially vulnerable at the back I think, but they have some quality kids coming through, hopefully a fit and firing Hombsch who I rate will help out back there.

Their best 24 on paper suddenly starts to look pretty bloody good, so from there it all comes down to form and fitness as it does for every club.

I reckon Port have a good history of being bargain hunters in trade periods and don't appear to have any trouble getting people to want in.

Pretty good analysis JK. 3 great ins for the club. Automatically improve our best 22 by some margin and we are likely to lose 1 player from our elimination final side. Our depth may take a bit of a hit, but plenty of kids coming through to take care of that. From our side that played WC you have:

In - Watts, Rockliff, Motlop, Jonas
Out - Impey, Marshall, Bonner, Neade/Amon

Can also make a case for bringing Hombsch in as well and throwing Howard up forward. All of a sudden, looks a very good side.
I honestly think we can challenge probably more so due to the comp being so even but definitely not getting ahead of myself. A lot of things can happen from now until March, let alone next September

Re: 2018 AFL Season

All about ratings. Carlton would rate better than port, even though as a neutral we would all rather see the best teams playing in a Friday night

Good to see someone add some intelligence to the debate.
The world doesn’t revolve around the Power or Crows!


Used Port as an example as i know our fixture more in depth than others, wouldn't matter if it was Port or not.

West Coast is a better example. Was knocked out in the semi finals and only get 1 Thursday night and 1 Friday night game.

Games in the West are always harder because they have to start at funky times

I know, they were just the first team i could think of that wouldn't have many Thurs/Fri night games other than Port :lol: :lol:

Re: Port Adelaide 2018

So i am pretty sure we had 1 less than what we could have had on the list this year. Booney would be able to confirm??

Turnover of players at the moment is -6. Presuming Thomas signs we would be -5 then. Plus the extra list spot means we have 6 positions on our list. Draft picks are as per below plus the draft picks from 80 onward that will be used on the likes of Houston/Lienert/Ladhams to be upgraded to the main list. So we have the spots on the list free to pick up risk free DFA's. No one is actually going to miss out on being drafted. So instead of using the same players like Young, Ah Chee & Impey to rotate in and out of the side, we have gone and picked up other players that can fill a depth need and we can cut after a year if no good to accomodate for the extra draft picks next year that we have.

Main Draft picks: 46, 49, 59

Rookie Draft picks: 12, 30, 48

In:
5
FA in - Rockliff & Motlop
Trade in - Watts
DFA in – McKenzie & Trengove

Out:
11
Trade out – Impey, Ah Chee, Young, Austin & Lobbe
FA out - Trengove
Retire – Krakouer & Monfries
Delistings – White, Palmer & Eddy

Draft picks 2018: Port 1st, St. Kilda 2nd, Port 2nd, North 3rd, Port 3rd, Port 4th

Re: The Ashes 2017/2018



Is this the same Richie Kubsch that spent some time behind bars? Playing cricket at Berri at the moment if it is
Possibly, wouldn't think he was a hardened criminal as such, pretty quiet lad, may have erred on the wrong side of the law somewhere along the line, awesome fielder.
Wouldn't think there are many Richie Kubsch's running around. Was a very good fielder and he was a handy enough bowler as well.

Think he had some issues with his Mrs / Ex-Mrs back in the day - Can't remember.


Yeah not sure, I've only met him once as he got there after i left the region. He bowls mediums and bats down the order. Not sure how he fields.

Re: AFLW - Womens AFL

The Bulldogs Katie Brennan received a one game suspension last week ruling her out of the AFLW Grand Final.

The Bulldogs took it to the tribunal and lost.

They're now appealing that decision arguing that the rule interpretations between the mens and womens game is a breach of federal sexual discrimination laws.

Ive heard gerard whateley talk about this recently

basically if it was graded exactly the same in the mens game it would have been a $5k fine, but they didnt want to do that because the women comparatively earn much less. so they decided to keep it as a supsension instead of a fine.

Was that the thinking at tribunal over this incident, or prior to the commencement of the season?

Heard last night that this was the deal before the season began. As much as the suspension was a joke, they put this process in place unanimously to have suspensions instead of fines. Now the dogs are just embarrassing themselves

Re: Port Adelaide 2018

Barry goes out before Houston.

Looks rushed when he has the ball and hasn't impressed me with his work off the ball. Zero tackles on the weekend, zero .

Yeah that stat line doesn't read well. Especially in a tight game. He hasn't really done much to date. I suppose then as well, Westhoff can come up to a wing if he is replaced by Frampton

Westhoff can't lead the rucks, not the way the big physical blokes play the game now.

That is why i hope big Bill gets the nod for this first game

How come no one has bagged Zak Butters for his goal and celebration against Brisbane when we were 5 goals down?
