Re: Things that you rate!

Parents who actually let their kids be kids.

Saw a parent today in one of our stores who laughed @ their child after they were running around and they tripped and smacked their head on a door frame.

It wasn't serious but the kid wasn't talking to his Mum because she laughed and her reply was a simple "if you were not acting like a fool then it wouldn't happen".

Much better than probably the majority of parents who now have now created enough noise that hugging is not allowed during lunch time and also parents who make schools ban cartwheels during breaks.

No wonder kids now do extreme out of the ordinary behaviour when every time they try to push the boundaries there is something there to block them even contemplating such a thing.

Re: Ashes 3rd Test Perth Discussion

Regarding the toss. Adelaide was meant to be a flatter road than the Southern Expressway and Perth was meant to be a batters dream after day 1 according to all Media sources. Please, this mob are under attack more than any other touring side and suggestions of changing the rules doesn't hide the fact that they are getting hit left, right and centre no matter where they turn and they are piss weak for Test Cricketers. This is real test cricket. Welcome to the toughest tour on the the planet and it's about time we got some balls back.

Re: SAAFL Division 7 2014

All clubs have debatable tactics to become succesful and as the world gets more and more competitive it will get more intense. Can't tell me the best clubs in the SAAFL rely on solely on juniors and the love of the club. Even the college sides would have fringe benefits to high prized recruits as per district clubs in many cases too.

Who gives a rats what clubs spend and even if it back fires you can't really tell if a recruit is a bad egg. Seen many blokes turn their lives around when surrounded with the right people and that cash turns in to the best cash you have spent.

Re: Field umpires becoming redundant

Or we could just leave it to the umpires call. 3rd umpire is fine imo but sanitizing any game completely is ridiculous. For me run outs is fair game but beyond that then get ****.

Soccer is still very intriguing and is more popular than ever. It's still a sport who hasn't been caught up too much in modern technology when it comes to to on field decisions and SURPRISE it's more popular than ever!!

I agree that for Brahma this is a terrible position to be in, But like almost every other club they have to take the good with the bad,

My first years at Plympton were spent being belted by 20 goals every week and i can tell you that we certainly did not have the resources we have now.

What developed from that was a core group of players that stuck together through the beltings and formed the platform for the club to have success down the track. The culture that the club developed over the years helped us attract players to the club, because no matter what was happening on the field people were enjoying there time at the club. Whilst it might look grim now it may be the best thing to happen to Brahma


As I mentioned above Brahma don't have the resources Plympton had and have. A club of Plymptons status should never had been playing div 5 and for as long as they did. Even when getting smacked you all knew within that you had a golden era of kids coming through and that you just had to hang in there because it will turn. Which it did. I know this because we were also in the same boat but once again as a club we ain't no Plympton and never will be.

Take off the rose coloured glasses these blokes are in serious strife.

Re: Jonathon trott Weak/scared ????

When I was 25 I went through a real scary time for probably 2-3 weeks where I pushed myself to the max and it was the most scariest time of my life. It was not depression however a depressive period and my lovely Partner helped me understand this (through her studies) and I got through it without medication. I would have taken medication if not for the education and that helped me a lot.

I will never have a go @ someone who perhaps thinks they have a mental illness because the one I had short term was very very scary and that was without thoughts of self harm.....

Re: SAAFL Division 3 2014

Kilburn is a proud club and it would be a massive kick in the guts if they were forced to C1. I for one don't blame them for trying, even against the odds.....

It's sad that just because you get flogged (and on this occasion couldn't field 2 sides, however the club would have the best intentions to get 2 sides up after round 1) then people circle. I remember as a kid when Pt. Elliot were a joke. The communities took the piss out of them yes, however it was made in to a joke rather than a humiliation. No wonder Brahma did what they did.

Re: SAAFL division 6 2014

There is no doubt a small minority of umpires are cheats but to say they get the club in trouble is a load of BS. We are grown adults and it's a game of footy.

Players in lower divs make 100x more bad decisions on a footy field than the umpires and you don't see many getting abused as umpires do.

Re: SAAFL Division 3 2014

Any club would be gutted @ this let alone one of modern Amateurs proudest clubs.

I must admit of all the clubs I heard of in strife in the pre-season Kilburn was the last club I thought would have the biggest issues.

Yes it's unfortunate that one club lost some revenue but trade places with Kilburn and I know what I'd take.....

Finally they didn't dig their hole, no club deserves this and as a club they didn't bring the leagues image down nor theirs with the way they chose to run the club prior to these issues. As for the floggings just because they continuously lost by 50+ goals doesn't mean they don't deserve their spot in the comp. the problem now is so many clubs think they are Collingwood @ this level and it's a first world problem if your reserves don't get a game 1 week @ the expense if a club who lets be honest would be dying on the inside with their situation can't get a team up to satisfy some egos so they can flog them and kick as many goals possible and brag to their mates @ the club after 8 beers Saturday night.

Their record says they deserve their spot in div 3 and it's unfortunate they are in this position.

Re: Worst AFL media person..

This is the Port Adelaide that I hated but respected.

I don't want Adelaide to be run like the mob down the road, they are having a good run and it's good for SA footy that they are back up and about.

Let's not forget that the Crows 2 years ago were kissed on the dick all year with injuries, close matches, great draw, other clubs mis-fortunes and we hit a brick wall in the first final who went on to win the flag.

Let's see how the Power respond when challenged, they are being kissed on the dick currently like we were 2 years ago and all the little things are going their way. I am not saying they aren't the best side in the comp currently (In my genuine opinion they are) but **** me let's put things in to perspective. The season isn't half way yet.

It's a fairy tale currently, Geelong, Hawthorn, Collingwood have all faced adversity and still are feared each week and they are the way I want to see the Crows become not the mob down the road of whom are filled with the biggest bunch of band wagon supporters since Chelsea became good in the 2000's.

My company's Managing Director who is based in Melbourne says his skills by foot are the best he's ever seen (Mad Collingwood supporter) and said his effort in the 97 gf in the last was the biggest influence on a match by an individual in the games history in terms of the overall result in such a short amount of time.

**** we were lucky with our top 12 around that time. Probably did good to get 2 flags because if we had good depth we should have won more. The top end was out and out class.

Still not consistent enough to challenge this years flag in my opinion. Their worst is terrible but sides like Sydney, Freo, Hawthorn and Port still remain in the contest when not playing well.

Only once since 97 has a team come from outside the top 6 the year before and won the thing. That team went on to become one of modern footballs greatest sides.

Re: Round 17 Drivel


I'm still shocked Crows supporters are talking about making the 8 and the fact some people think so highly of them given their inconsistencies!


Crows will be inside the eight if they beat collingwood in the next round. Still right in the hunt given the form of the pies and golf coast.

We have collingwood away, west coast home, Brisbane away, Richmond home over the next 4 weeks. I think we will win all four, if we don't we don't deserve to play finals.

No way will port miss.
I would just rather if Crows supporters focussed on stringing a couple of wins together first instead of looking down the track into the distance and talking finals.

As for thinking so highly, comments like this i'm referring to straight after a loss:
I reckon since the Melbourne game we have stood up and become a feared opponent again.

We ain't far away from being a top contender again


Let me explain these posts as it seems to be bought in completely out of context.

The Crows are showing signs recently mainly since Walker has come back in that they structure up far better in the forward half and are able to kick bigger scores as a result.

Now we are inconsistent which if you genuinely ask me is because we are 1 senior coach down upstairs and Sando whilst isn't the best tactician in the land in my opinion is pretty good @ getting those right people around him. He has been without a senior right hand man in the box for the best part of 2 years and its a bloody difficult position to be in as a coach when the horrible circumstances this year evolved. You really can't morally go out and pick up let's say Mark Harvey in January to replace the bloke who unfortunately passed away and is critical to your in-field performance.

Now next year when you get a senior person in that rank like a Brett Ratten, Mark Harvey, Rodney Eade ect I would expect this group to be far better than the inconsistent shit they have dished up the last 18 months.

Will they go on this year? No. Will they make the finals? I hope so. Will they win a final? Probably not but if they do I expect far more next year providing they keep the core group which looks shakey atm.
