Re: SAAFL Division 3 2014

Credit to you Groover for coming out and giving your own opinion on the situation when it differs from that of your club.

FWIW, Brahma won't be the only side that's been uncompetitive in Division 3, we had a year in 2006 when we won one game by a kick, and lost by 15+ goals eight times during the year. I also remember beating Rosewater by 34 goals in Round 1 of Division 4 in 2007 and none of their guys ever looked they were going to give it away, and they ended up winning a couple of games towards the back end of the year when it got wet and some other sides had some injuries.

The other line about getting more injuries in a non-competitive game is a complete myth IMO, I'm fairly sure more guys get injured playing games on a Saturday then they do at training with slight contact. An absolute non-issue.

It's an unfortunate situation for BL, but they did pay out money to get a percentage of these guys to their club (and a lot of others obviously had a loyalty to Payney, which is a sign of his quality as a coach), so they shouldn't be all that surprised when they move on for even more money or becazuse they still want to play under Payney.

Sorry BL, as bad as you'll think you'll be, you should suck it up, cop it for 12 months like every other club has at some point, and have a go at Div 4 in 2015 when you've had another off-season to try and re-invigorate your list.

Re: SAAFL Division 3 2014

A question I would ask Kilburn:

How have you worked with the AFL or Auskick to encourage these folk to try our great game. Areas of Sydney have whole teams of muslim women playing the game.

If a non AFL state can attract that type of competition from women, no less, who in any other life wouldn't even be allowed out of the house, how is it that Kilburn haven't been able to do the same with people that in theory, would be a great pick up in anyones side for height and pace.

A magnificent example of this is the young lad from Woody South - Ramah Ahmed - the kid is a great player and I think only about 19?

From some brief junior coaching observations Salisbury had some fantastic junior players of what appeared to be Sudanese descent. One almost singlehandedly won an Under 13s Preliminary Final I coached in. That kid will be a star. He doesn't have a lot of support from family, but has a coach who drives 10 minutes out of his way to pick him up for trainings and games.

Re: SAAFL Division 3 2014

We have been informed that even if Kilburn go down to one side, their A Grade will still be in D3 and D3R would have the bye, but Kilburn have reassured the league they plan on having both.

Not sure if the staying in D3 idea is Kilburn's choice, or if the league can't fit them into any of the C grade comps, but if it is Kilburn's call, kudos to them.

Re: The Umpiring was good.... wait. what?

Caught about an hour of AFL in round 1 and agree the umpiring seemed pretty reasonable.

Unfortunately though when I see a Boak/Simpson deciscion it makes me ill and I have to switch off. The umpire made the right call under the ruling but it kills the game for me, surely there has to be too for common sense when there is a great one on one battle Agree with this, if there was ever a 50/50 contest in footy that was it, had to be a ball up. Obviously it's not under the rules but anyone with footy common sense knew it should've been a ball-up.

The umpiring was better overall but still has a way to go when these are called holding the ball, yet I saw many times where a player ran for 6,7,8 steps, got tackled without disposing of it properly but was called play on simply because the ball came loose.

Re: Clubs in strife

I know and it sounds like there will always be the same conflict. Who's got the most coin to throw around. Ditts said that he believes that Amatuer clubs in Div 4 - 8 shouldnt pay players. What's your thoughts on that? Also a bloke from Salisbury jumped on the radio to give his thoughts and he said and I quote ( which i find it really hard to believe ). " No one from the Salisbury FC gets paid because they all love and enjoy the culture". What a load of rubbish. You cant tell me that a club in Div 3 doesnt pay players. Crap. As a committee member and vice-captain of the club, I can tell you that no cash is handed to players unless they are in the best 5 that day. Don't get angry at us because we have a strong junior set-up and bring them through to senior footy. If you can find someone closer to the situation than me, feel free to let us know his/her view.

If you did any research before spouting out your crap, you'd note that we lost 3 of our top 5 in last years B&F to the Barossa comp this year, as well as a former junior to the Hills. I'll give ya a hint, it's not because they all live outside of the metro area. This is also one of the reasons why we have yo-yo'd between Div 3 & 4 for 10 years, we are unable to compete financially with the top Div 3 or close country clubs. We have had a golden era of junior footballers coming through to become outstanding senior footballers in the last 10-12 years which has got us to Div 3, nothing else.

But if you want to let your uneducated assumptions get mixed up with the facts, go right ahead.

Re: Your clubs most important 5 players

We have been total shithouse without Maric, Rance and Deledio. Verified that for me.

Cotchin and Deledio are clearly our two best mids. Conca, Eliis and Vlastuin will get there eventually, Martin drifts in and out of games way, way too often for a guy who should be genuine A-grader.

We would never kick a winning score without Riewoldt.

Hampson (*shudder*) is our ruckman when Maric is out.

Astbury has been good but doesn't provide the run that Rance does, Grimes is very similar, not alot of offensive stuff.

Like REB said, the best defender, best forward, #1 ruckman, two best mids. Fairly simple formula, and without three of them, we've limped to 2-5.

Re: Viable Alternatives

The commitment that SANFL players need to have while juggling full-time work is just too much for guys to do now for 12-15 years.

I'm not sure raising the salary cap is the answer, maybe reducing the training load is.
I find that hard to believe. I know plenty of people that work full time and go the gym every night. How is it any different? SANFL clubs train 3 times a week and play on Saturdays.
Monday - train.
Tuesday - weights
Wednesday - train
Thursday - day off
Friday - train
Saturday - play
Sunday - recovery session.

Considering you can stop in at the gym on the way home from work, do a quick half an hour and be home by six, I wouldn't quite put it in the same boat as a 2hr session followed by ice baths etc, and getting home at 9pm, four times a week, plus your Sunday mornings. For people with a family, it is a big commitment on top of full-time work. SANFL players would do more hours a week through work/footy than AFL players.

Re: 2015: 7 Pure A-Grade Divisions

Great idea, we could have Angle Vale against Salisbury North in the reborn CDFA. Or Goody Saints v Mitchell Park in the Inner-South FL. That'd be great viewing.

:oops:

Angle Vale & Mitchell Park are two of the clubs making a fuss about not paying players. They would be perfect candidates for a better regulated Amateur League.

Sent from my GT-I9305T using Tapatalk

Righto then, they can play Adelaide Uni's A Grade. Problem solved.

You are not really putting much thought into this are you?

I would expect them to play against the lesser Old Scholar teams, like minded clubs and Uni's lesser grades.

I would also expect those clubs to improve from where they are now, else why are they bothering?
Uni don't pay players officially, wouldn't that make them amateur?

You can't turn it into a rich comp/poor comp, because you can't monitor what clubs spend, and you can't turn it into a regional comp, or you get the lopsided SFL version 2, 3 and 4.

Promotion/relegation is still the best way to do it, natural selection will eventually put clubs in their place.

Re: Suggestions for a new song for Port

As a person who dislikes both Port and the Crows, this type of negativity smacks of jealousy. Crows have been #1 in this town for so long and rested on their lawrels. Port have upped the ante massively and the West Lakes crew are currently floundering, especially since they adopted the 19th man rubbish.
This.

Suck it up Crows supporters, Port are doing things better than you at the moment. I know what sounds more like a united footy club, and it's not a bird squawking in the background.

I went on Saturday night as a neutral, and although the singing from the crowd wasn't as loud as I thought it might've been, give it 12 months and it will be massive. Good on Port for trying something, it shouldn't really have a massive impact on what the players are doing but if it enhances the experience for the fans then it's only a positive thing for their footy club.

That's like saying when we win a Div 4 flag, we're not going to play Div 3 because the players on those sides get paid and we don't. Amateur v Semi-professional.

Marbles, maybe other clubs contain players that have ambition to be as good as they can be, even if Henley don't. But when you (Henley) have players not rocking up to the club for presos because they saw that they weren't named in the best on Sportingpulse at 5.30, I'm not really surprised.

Re: Under 18 penalties.

Having done three years of A Grade/U17s, with two games every weekend, I can safely say that I would encourage no kid to do both. I had OP by the time I was 21 due to over-work and have been injury plagued ever since. My doctor at Sportsmed made the call to me that for every season you play two games a weekend, the actual toll on the body is worth three seasons. By that thought process, I had a 27-year old body at 18.

If I was a parent of a child attending Burton/Settlers Farm/Salisbury Downs,I'd be doing the same to make sure my kid went to Centrals instead of driving all the way to Woodville.

Went and had a look at Havens v CLG as a neutral yesterday arvo, good contest to watch.

Mooney did a top job on Harvey, basically won them the game by winning that duel. Havens had less of the footy it felt, but were a bit cleaner and Lipson was able to take a catch and slot a few, something CLG didn't have at the other end. Thought Cochrane was really good down back, R. Duerden and Laurencic had a decent impact as well. CLG had plenty of the ball but shot themselves in the foot with poor disposal/decision making plenty of times, Francis was clearly their best but the miss in the last quarter running into the open goal (went with the outside of the boot) would be haunting him today.

No sympathy from me, work within your limitations. How long will it take for clubs to work out that if your spending is going to exceed your income, you will make a loss?

I can't feel sorry for clubs who pay their players too much, and then whinge when they leave for more cash. Shits me to tears.

I should add, there are some good people at Westies who would play for $0, pay rego and put money over the bar, like there would be at Kilburn and Brahma Lodge. I feel for these guys, but the clubs as a whole need to have a genuine look at the way they run things before they get to the point of running out of money and asking to drop grades.
