Re: INS and OUTS for 2019

Well written. This gender driven female issue is gone mad. Its not a new phenomenon though as its been going on for a decade or more. All the sudden the AFL introduced a Female Football League and states followed ( as good kids do) . The standard is not great at all. Then we had to have female commentators . Sorry but they are as bad as some male ones . I thought Sam Lane on comments was good but my point is with the sudden influx was stupid . I am very balanced on this . I wont watch or listen to Andy Maher as he is woeful , so its about quality. Its not about gender. I think the best Kindy teachers and early Primary School teachers are Female. I reckon Females are way better at certain jobs than males. That is just how it goes.
We are all different , cant we just accept that ?

Female Footy

I was waiting for it ! Good luck to females who play footy . Go for it . On tonight news was a female footballer complaining they only get paid 13k per season yet some AFL men get 50k a game . Its gone mad seriously. Want equal money then play a whole season and people have to pay to watch it. I wonder what SANFL players feel about this .

Re: Port v Sturt Sat 1410

When did he cause the umpire to take it off Sturt while they were lining up for goal for abusing the umpire?

Im trying to decipher this.

I was establishing a time line for little man Hansons dummy spit. It wasn't after he flew for a mark that he trudged down into the rooms.

One of your blokes was lining up for goal, Hanson was carrying on to the umpire, the ball was taken off you and he was dtagged, subsequently he had an official come from the bench and take him away from the bowling club area. It was good timing, his stupidity resulted in a goal at the other end and he got to watch it. Was the only time he imposed himself on the game all day.
Mate if you wish to pick people up on spelling etc , its a good idea to check your own. Were you standing there ?

Re: 2019 Elimination Final - Sturt v Norwood

The clubs might like it but what about the supporters ? Would be a magnificent atmosphere . Forget a neutral ground but clubs should be rewarded with home finals . To me its a no brainer . Gate receipts can be shared and catering profits can be weighted in favour of the home club. Plus it is a much better look on TV .

Re: Finance Troubles

I think you're half right Brett. When we were winning, everyone wanted a piece of the action, at the GF after parties there were hundreds of people there that I'd never seen before, most of the people there wouldn't have been members either. As soon as the premierships dried up, the glory seekers disappeared but they'll slink back in when & if we start being successful again, this is the same with every club!
The good news is we will be debt-free in 2021, we're doing things outside of footy to make more money & will be able to do more things once the debt has gone.
There is an air of positivity about the club which happens with change, a new coach & some good recruits will do that.
The good news is I think we've come through our toughest era since the very early days & we haven't "won" a spoon.
All clubs apart from the Eagles that we have met in a GF since 2000 HAVE hit rock bottom & won a spoon & I think this shows just how tough & resilient my club is.
Firstly , thanks for a sensible post without the attack. My concern for Centrals and a couple other clubs is the ones with small supporter bases . Centrals , as agree had a huge following when sucessful but they have gone as maybe not the ones the club wants back anyway. I will get shut down for this as well but West , South and Eagles have a small supporter base. Interestingly 3 of those clubs were very wealthy in the Pokies time. That has now gone. You must as a club embrace members and find other revenue streams. Im glad the Dogs are .

Re: SANFL Clubs

Clubs need a big backer as well as donations. If they don't have that and in trouble, they won't survive. I must say I'm not surprised by Centrals slide. That decade has actually come back to bite them IMO. Too many jumped on that didnt really follow footy I think and then jumped off.It would be great if they came back to the fold to help Centrals out.

Re: SANFL Clubs

Port wont be part of it as they will need the AFL lifeline as they did the SANFL.The SANFL does not need to be restructured IMO. The League competition will change but I think back to a 9 team fixture with the Crows just fielding a lot of top up players.

It will 100% only be 8 teams this year, there is no way anyone on an AFL list will be able to mix with the plebs from the SANFL with their quarantine hubs they will set up.
If we are lucky that will continue into next season

We know one thing. The AFL taking over Ports finances means they are gone.I bet the AFL regret it now. They (port) bleed money and want handouts.

I see the AFL being smaller league after all this.Some franchises will need to go and it will make footy better if they are serious about a national game.

AFL lists will reduce which will make State leagues stronger. Pity it took a Pandemic for the AFL to work it out.

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

ABC news reported that both Adelaide and Port Power intend to participate in the SANFL next year. I cant take any satisfaction out of the AFL teams being removed from the league until it is a league decision. That is when we will know the SANFL is keen to stand on its own and we may just get a diversified Australian Rules football landscape.
Considering the PAM have left the SANFL and they want to return next season, should they be made to pay a license fee like A/Crows as they will be a new entity.?
They may want to return but will the organisation who runs them allow it ? If they get the nod they should obviously pay and I think its time the fee is raised.

Re: Round 3 Glenelg v North 1410 Glenelg

Oh sweet geezus we have HIM commentating the game, why oh why. And the chick. I might have to go to the pub I think.

Was just going to post, does anyone know if we have a radio option for this game? Why do they have the commentators so loud, they're terrible anyway but surely they can turn it down by half and let us hear the crowd a bit more. If anyone knows anyone in charge of the digital pass here, get the word out. It's not just this game it's every one, way too loud compared to the ground noise.
Its not the volume its just the commentators .They are poo. He has absolutely no idea. Kept saying about no one knows how much time has gone? WTF Does he realise we see it on the screen? Tells us something he is going to say and doesn't say it? 21 mins into a quarter says it is deep into the last quarter . The list goes on . The worst was when he spoke of Bradley and after repeating his names in that terrible voice referred to him as Braddles and tried a segway into Mark Naley. "Speaking of Braddles sad to hear the passing of Mark Naley". Oh get off mate its embarrassing. Cant the SANFL attract some commentators for the Pass ? Maney by far the best.

Re: SANFL 2020 Season

I think a 2021 season topic should be introduced. That is going to very interesting.

Why would anyone want no Reserves ? That is ruining the game even more .

The whole structure of footy is wrong IMO and has been for years. Once the so called AFL was introduced it should have changed and changed to make footy better. But as we all know its was about saving Vic clubs and back door deal with Port.
It should be now an AFL comp and with less teams. ( we all know that). Lists should be reduced and the drafted age lifted to 20 . That simply strengthens the state leagues and doesn't lose players after being swallowed up in a horrible system.
I dont want AFL reserves in . They add nothing. But if the Power and Crows want to join then the SANFL either says no or demand a huge licence fee. Im sure the AFL would have nowhere to go on that .

Re: Round 13 Glenelg v Centrals Saturday 1610.

Slow learners down the Bay? A few Glenelg supporters spent the entire game in the outer drinking while standing. While I think it’s a stupid regulation especially when drinking outside, I’m not sure any SANFL club can afford one fine let alone two. Glenelg didn’t seem to have the security presence or Covid regulating seen at other grounds.

Centrals had their chances in the last quarter and probably should have won. Good signs for next year if we can keep the team together.

Yeah Glenelg Football Club have done it very poorly.
