That's the important question. There'll be no novelty factor and by the time North meet them again, most supporters will have moved on from wanting to ridicule them.

Re: The 2014 season no AFL in the SANFL whinge thread


Your right it is way to early to know what impact it will have Maybe, but a few hundred Crows fans rocking up to the first game on a fine day doesn't bode well.
don't forget the few hundred North fans that showed up to see the crows
Being a Sunday, fine weather and the first game of the year wouldve had a much bigger influence, we don't get too many round 1 games at home recently.
But what was the crowd? 4025?
If the Crows aren't liars we'll get 25 this week.
And remember our last game got 40,000!
North math day crowd has dropped 90% since the Cows reserves entered our comp!

Re: Round 2 LIVE Scores

Any crowd figures today?
Looked about 2000 at Prospect.
Memberships down, too many people can get in free these days with AFL memberships. I know someone that's already used my Adelaide Oval Footy Memberships for the last 2 weeks to get into Prospect for free.
Throw in on top of that that the SANFL is paying more for television coverage, things are looking bleak.
Seems Triggy was wrong on a few counts but that didn't stop some morons who didn't have full details or iron clad agreements voting to allow them in.

Re: Round 2 - North v South Post Game

South looking the goods, setting up for a huge Integrity Cup in a couple of weeks time.

What was North's problem today, attitude, skill, desire, outclassed or was this just a one off stinker.

South just looked much better.
Looked great at the stoppages and found players a lot more often than North did.
South look very classy.
And a bit of the karma bus, never that disappointing to see South or Central win games against clubs that were traitors to the SANFL.

South crowd today made much more noise than any Crows supporters at Prospect last week.

Big game for North coming up at Richmond on Easter Thursday, North have a lot of short breaks between games but dropping early games can be very damaging in an 18 round comp when 2 of those rounds are just percentage boosters against the Crows.

Well done South! As a paid up member for South I can celebrate and commiserate tonight!
Ironic that the first year I'm a South member is the first year I moved from down South to live at Prospect. :lol:

Re: Round 2 - Port Reserves v Glenelg Post Match

I have a question.. sorry if it seems a stupid one.. but.

What song do Port sing when they win? The Maggies song or the Power song?? :?

Sydney's song.

I think you'll find Sydney stole it from Port....

I think youll find Fos Williams stole it from South Melbourne. Its mentioned in the book about the Williams Dynasty.

Re: Norwood calls for fourth interchange player

Ridiculous idea, they feel they needed 4 interchange as they had 2 concussions.
What if they had 13 concussions?
How can you predict there will only be 2 concussions in a game to a team?
Unless its a bloke who played reserves the same day you cannot justify having a substitute in a non fully professional competition.

Re: Rnd 3 - Central v Adelaide @ Playford Alive Oval (Sat 19

This is the first game I won't be attending when I don't have another commitment for years. I'm not sure if my stubbornness is good or bad. I feel like I am letting my team down, especially when they voted no. But on the other hand I don't want to be seen as supporting the AFL in the SANFL. To go, or not to go, that is the question?

Get down there big fella. I also have no interest in the AFL reserves being in the SANFL but as soon as South voted No my support for them has got stronger. Incidentally Centrals are now my second favourite team and hope you guys have a big win!

North v Norwood - Anzac Day - Post Game

North shot out of the blocks but Norwood dominated the 2nd and 3rd quarter before the better team who plays real football came home in the last.

NORTH 3.2 4.3 7.4 14.7 (91)
NORWOOD 1.2 5.7 7.12 9.16 (70)

BEST – North: Shannon, Miles, Amato, Mitchell, Campbell, Ryswyk, Thiele.
Norwood: Baulderstone, Panos, Jefferies, Murphy, Webber, Allan.

GOALS – North: Mitchell 4, Miles 3, Burton 2, Campbell, Amato, M. Thring, Shannon, Thiele.
Norwood: Roocke 2, Newton, Bartlett, Bampton, M. Evans, Murphy, Donohue, Phillips.

CROWD – 10,014 at Adelaide Oval.

BOB QUINN MEDAL – Jay Shannon (North

Well done to the Norwood supporters today that made it, I honestly don't think I could watch that style for more than 1 or 2 games a year. You're a credit to your club!

What a freaking amazing banner by the North fans, the best in Australia still.

Well done NRL, I loved reading about that. So often we put down these organisations but that is awesome and might even reignite my following of the NRL. Super stuff! :D
The Knights have also extended Alex's contract offering him the same money they were when previously negotiating when his accident. Superb stuff. Stuff like that makes me so happy! Newcastle are now my second side.

Re: the home of the blue and gold army

Reminds me of watching the SANFL compared to the AFL before Geelong revolutionized the AFL. Yes a higher level but awful to watch for the purists. English Rugby League has crowd involvement, backs and forwards and is great to watch for purists.


Wegs, we've know each other for way too long. You're either fishing for a response, or clearly delusional.
Probably delusional but I've loved English Rugby League since the mid 90s and my Rhinos top is one of my most prized possessions. ;)

Re: Rnd 6 - Central v North @ Playford Alive Oval (Sat 10/5)

I'm going to miss my first North game for just over 2 years,

It's not just because of their poor form, but that with the fact I'm renovating and need to do more, the distance (normally doesn't stop me, I haven't missed a Central or South game for 5 years), it will be wet and Mrs Ian has the car, I'd have to go on the motorbike,
if I get enough done in the morning I might go catch either Lockleys or Fitzroy play in the afternoon instead.

The result on this one is any ones guess, other that Rd 1 V the pretenders and 1 or 2 other quarters, North have showed nothing to excite or instill confidence to it's supporters

Make sure you have the radio on then, listening to the 1197am RPH call - they might even give you a shout out? ;)
I doubt we will mate but we'll have safooty on our phones so give us a shout out on here and plenty of score updates please :)

Re: The 2014 season no AFL in the SANFL whinge thread

I don't have an issue with the Power in fact I admire them in the last couple of years as they just sat back quietly while the Crows set them up beautifully.

Re: The 2014 season no AFL in the SANFL whinge thread

Wedgie, you cant blame The power or The Crows, they both want whats best for their club, and if the dumb arses that gave it to them agreed to it, how can you blame them. The only thing that annoys me is when their supporters are quetioned about the unfair advantage granted to them, they argue as if there is no advantage. What drugs are they on to even deny the fact their is an enormous advantage. Power supporters should just accept that where handed a gift but why should they give it back, if it was my team I would be over the moon.
The Power went about it the smart way while the Crows lied and conived their way in and in the process severely hurt their own brand amongst the most loyal footy fans around. I cheered for them live at the 97 GF and all of the 93 finals. Never again, my most hated club in the world.
The Power on the other hand went up a couple of notches in my book and I wish them well.
Most of their supporters will always be dimwits, inbreeding will do that but they're harmless.
