Re: SAAFL division 6 2014

Jeez, considering the full forward at the other end kicked 10 why aren't we ragging on the Lockleys fullback? Q would understand that sometimes, when playing deep in D, there just 'aint much you can do. Gatis kicking 5 goals (3 on me) had nothing to do with me being unfit ... ok maybe it was a little bit ... but it was mostly Lockley's supply which was first rate on the day. Give credit where it is due.

Re: SAAFL division 6 2014

Morell, I agree with some of your comments, but fitness, regardless of what division you are playing in, is surely the most important asset any footballer can have. There is no point having all of the skill and ability in the world, if you cant get your hands on the footy.
Lets take for example, two opponents, of equal weight, height, strength and talent. One can run 15 laps in good time at training, the other can get around the oval say 3 times before he needs a breather. These two guys line up on each other on a Saturday, and there are 15 contests, 1 on 1, with the ball about 30 metres away. How many times do you think the bloke with supreme fitness is going to get his hands on the ball first and pump it long. Not to mention his delivery will be much better because he isn't so spent by the time he gets the footy, and his decision making will be better because his mind is clear, and not asking himself how am I going to get my next breath. Just my opinion.

Re: Things that make you laugh

I played my first game of cricket in about six years on Saturday.
I kept wickets.

Today, I'm sitting at work with an ice pack under each thigh.
What was I thinking?

Things that made me laugh from the game itself?

* I faced a deadset chucker.
* The chucker, at one stage, changed his run up and zig-zagged behind the umpire so I thought he was going to go around the wicket. So I pulled away. He stood to the side of the pitch and glared at me. Seriously, mate? You're lucky we even allowed you to bowl.
* Spin bowler decides he's going to change the field just as I'm about to settle over the bat. He makes three changes, skipper makes a change or two, just I thought it was all over, the keeper makes a few changes. All in all, it took about five minutes. The bowler then asks me, "are you ready?"
* Number nine batsman comes to the wicket and says to me, "just letting you know, the next bloke in has no idea with the bat". Having seen the number nine in the nets, I knew we were in trouble.

Re: I need to know....

Is Lucas Neil the biggest sook in Australia sport at the moment?

He is, but's let us not forget just how precious professional athletes are.

Poor souls, all that money to stay super fit and do what they love, travel the world, barely put their hand in their pocket for anything, ever and then on top of that they have to tolerate being "booed" from time to time. Not because the public want to "boo" them as such, but there's no chance of scaling the ivory tour to actually speak to them so "booing" from the terraces is the only way the public can voice displeasure at comments they have made during those ever so tiresome 15 minute pressers.

Oh how my heart ******* bleeds.

Re: Ashes First Test Live Discussion

Ok. So here are my keys for the third day.

1. Bat out the day. Keeping the POMs in the field all day will help for the whole series. Johnson, Siddle and in particular Harris will love sitting in the rooms kicking up their heels watching Anderson, Broad and Tremlett toil away. Fit as these blokes might be, early workloads make a difference across the series.

2. Ton up. Someone has to. Haddin deserved to in the first, but getting the job done make a huge difference to both sides. Warner or Clarke getting to the magical triple figure mark (or dare we get greedy and >1?) will add runs to our totals throughout the series.

3. Rogers needs to survive the early onslaught. Warner has his runs already, Rogers needs to prove his mettle by surviving. 20 overs and I give him a pass, but nothing could help Australia if Rogers was unbeaten at tea.

4. See of the first spell of Anderson, Broad and Tremlett. Bowlers hate coming off without a wicket. Don't underestimate the difference it made with Harris getting a wicket in his first spell. They've fired their best, with the ball at its best and got nothing. Spell #2 is so much worse with 0 in the wickets column for everyone.

5. Don't let Swann get into the series. 1/80, 2/100, no worries. But if Swann gets 5/60 or something it'll hurt us going forward. We did a great job in the first dig, but we need to make sure we keep him reacting and feeling like a stock bowler, not a strike bowler.

Andy Flower said he has dealt with with for quite a while

Which most likely true but unfortunately the general public are going to see a bloke who has walked away at 1-0 down, when out of form, discovered weakness of the short pitch stuff, on quick bouncier wickets than his use to.

I'm not.
I'm seeing a player with a predisposed condition, like a hamstring, who thought he could manage a situation with the support of his team management but, unfortunately, was unable to.

Re: Ashes 2nd Test Adelaide Discussion

give silk/head a few more years before they get picked. otherwise it will be another hughes situation all over again.

3 years time they will still be younger than anyone else in the current team.

i could see them bringing faulkner in for bailey just so that harris and siddle dont have to bowl 30 overs each

Good call. Although I haven't seen that much of Head but that's what happens when you get married.

JAS

It was about a year ago today that many truly caring, loving people, found out that Jacqueline Ann Schwier (JAS) had passed away.

Despite all the hours of painstaking moderation this Angel gave this site, and others, there are still a few remaining ‘Arseholes’ who should hang their heads in shame.

Those who still love this utterly gorgeous human being will always remember that she only sought to serve, honestly and fairly, just as she had in the ‘Falklands War’. How could anyone treat such a beautiful person so badly? Luckily, there were only a few f**kwits who treated this Angel unfairly. Fortunately, those who chose to ridicule, torture or upset JAS in the year of her death are a pathetic minority, way beyond belief & contempt. Good Aussies, should take a moment to remember this brave and unselfish woman, who, with complete and utter dedication, fought terminal cancer, silently, bravely, and tragically, on her own.

Thank you for just being you JAS.

Good and decent people will always love you and remember you.

I luv you Jax, and always will.

Re: Abbott Watch

Nothing has happened yet to base a judgement on as the Liberals are still trying to decipher the confusion in the mess left behind and work out what they have to do. Only prejudicial presumption rules here at present.

As I've said before, though I am a Liberal Party member, I'm not a big Abbott fan either.
But I'll wait and see before I start pushing for his replacement.,

He did do a good job sorting out the mess his (Liberal) predecessor had made of the Health portfolio, when he took it over in 2003.

- Signing/Threating to sign the TPP 'agreement' before the Sentate sees it. Phillip Morris is planning to sue us to get their prett pictures back on their deadly product. Expect more of this shit if this agreement gets signed
- Gonski backflip when Pyne hasn't even read the report
- Threating to cut the funding of the ABC because it dares to bad mouth the government
- Offending China
- Offending Indonesia
- Offending East Timor
- Deleting articles from the Tony Abbott website that contradict his current position on various matters
- Censorship being raised to an artform - authorising the Militar to say **** all on Soveriegn Borders
- High court challeges to prevent homosexual marriages
- Establishing a debt-ceiling at a time when he was supposed to be reigning in debt responsibly
- Introduction of new powers to prevent protestors in Tasmania from entering a 'worksite'
- Dredging the great barrier reef marine park
- Raiding Women's superannuation
- Reneging on a payrise for Child Care Workers while at the same time handing out the usual Tax cut to the Rich
- Repealing Anti-Vilification legislation
- Closing down GrainCorp negotiation in a so called 'open for business' government, now he has to play tough on Holden and QANTAS.
- Despite the meltdown in Japan, thinking of creating a Nuclear Power plant in FNQ
- Attempting to change the rules on how the Governor General is selected because of Quentin Bryce's dissent

This is a corporate dictatorship, paid for by Murdoch and Reinhardt. These clowns have no idea that they were voted in TO REPRESENT US, not sell us as products to multinationals. Abbot doesn't give a shit because like George W Bush, he's been bought and paid for and they are now coming to collect.

It will take us decades to recover from this government.

Re: SAAFL Division 7 2014

Can't believe that players in div 7 are getting paid well over a hundred a game. Where is footy heading,surely you can attract players to your club without offering ridiculous money.will be bloody cold training in the middle of winter at this club
.
You have to be joking? There is no way any players in Div7 should be getting paid at all let alone over a hundred bucks. What type of club would do this?

People wonder why clubs fade away and die!

This would have to be a joke?

OR this could be the way the club is able to work its way up the Divisions, which is after all what all SAAFL clubs are trying to do. Maybe this club has exhausted all avenues in recruiting and has decided to fork out some coin to attract players that are going to help them win a flag, or at least make the GF so they can be promoted.

If its within your means to pay players why not use it to your advantage. You just want to make sure you recruit/pay the right type of player who supports the club off the field as much as he does on.

Re: Ashes 3rd Test Perth Discussion

Amazing what happens when rain doesn't "save" a team from defeat, when DRS doesn't influence the outcome, when pitches aren't ridiculously doctored.
Amazing what happens when a coach is appointed who is a man's man. Who understands our culture, who can sort out the shit in our dressing room. A coach who's been there and freely encourages a frothy after a win. A coach who pisses off the silly rotation system.

We have an opener in Warner who can put a bowling attack on the back foot within minutes. We have a skipper who's tactics are brilliant and is a world class batsmen. Haddin is in career best form after overcoming personal adversity. We have a group of bowlers who complement each other. Harris is all class, Siddle is all guts, Lyon gets better and better and then there's Mitch. We haven't had a quick put fear in batsmen since Thommo. His head is clearly in a better space.

When we took the final wicket I was stopped at traffic lights. The bloke in the car next to me yelled "you beauty", the two young tradies opposite me were high fiving - it's a great day to be an Aussie. One could be excused if one indulged in an extra tinnie or three tonight.

The arrogance is back, so is the swagger and the chirp. But most importantly, for the Australian cricket team and the Australian cricket public - the good times are back.

Re: SANFL Draw

And that leads to an interesting question ... do people support a club or a competition?

From my pre-media days I certainly was more concerned about HOW my team played, rather that WHO my team played.

Very good point.

Whilst I respect everyone can have their own views on this, my 2c is that I have supported my club for 40 years through thick and thin, by blind faith and stupidity without cause for science.

That's what most supporters do ... there is no rhyme or reason other that the love for the club.

That doesn't mean supporters should just accept the decisions made or not question them, you have every right to make your club accountable.

For what it's worth, my financial support for my club will be increasing as I'm fortunate enough to have the capacity to do so. I don't want to see my club (or any other for that matter) die.

The competition will continue and change is inevitable. Some may not like it whilst others will embrace it. There is no right or wrong.

Just a thought for those who don't like the changes to the competition. Whilst it's fine to make your thoughts known on sites like this one, the only way you can influence the decisions that are made by your club is to:
- be a member and make sure your voice is heard
- get involved in your club ... there are many ways to do this
- stand for your Board and make the sacrifices (both time and money) that these people have to make to serve your club

If I look at my club, the President made a decision which he thought was in the best interests of the club and ultimately the competition. Many have voiced their opposition to this.

It is the same president that has been responsible for employing a new CEO, a new Coach, a new Football Director, funding is available to ensure the club's financial sustainability, and facilitated an environment so that quality recruits can be attracted to the club.

My 2c is that he's done a remarkable job in the short time he's been in the role.

I guess time will tell whether his actions bring success to the club on and off the field.

Re: SAAFL Division 3 2014

It has happened in the past where when clubs lose their core group, they suffer for several years and getting out of that losing culture is hard. In recent times PNU, Kilburn, Para Hills, Eastern Park, Ingle Farm are just a few clubs who have dropped very quickly through the grades till they found their true positions and were able to stabilise before climbing again.

With no juniors ready for another 4-5 years at least, unless BL spend a LOT of money and get their 15 points worth in absolute cream players, the road will be very long for them, and with so many clubs around the area, may come to a dead end. With less success on the field this year, one can't see the clubrooms being chock full on a Saturday night (nor after training for that matter), hence income probably down, yet with the same overall running costs.......that positive bank balance they now have may diminish rather quickly.

BL have made a club decision, but I think this is in the best interests of Division 3 as well. Belting BL by 30 goals proves no reflection on how good a team is, and can be very misleading. If there happened to be another weak side or two in D3, it would make it a VERY lopsided division. Furthermore, at D3 level, does the SAAFL want B grade sides forfeiting?

If BL were forced to stay in D3, their demise would be a lot harsher than going down to D4, purely by the size of and numbers of beltings. This gives the kids nothing to aspire to & the club would probably lose a heap. IMO It will probably take BL until D6 again to stabilise, therefore they will probably have a decent year or two just prior to the kids being ready. That's when they will strengthen up again.

This really is a kick in the guts to BL, losing so many players at once. Whilst I have no affinity with the club, having seen the disappearance down the grades by so many clubs, it shouldn't be made to happen. The right decision by BL & the SAAFL has been made, let's just hope BL can survive and we don't see another well established club folding. Kudos also to Mitcham for accepting the challenge of staying up.

Twice sides have been dropped into our (North Haven) division and twice they have made a GF and we have finished third but i think this time it will be different by the sounds of things.

Well for starters I don't fancy our chances of finishing top 3 but i would hate to finish 9th and them 8th

Being relegated is a moot point. By all reports Glenunga were building a very good side that would have likely finished above ninth anyway. D5 just eliminated a serious contender.

Do you think people at Glenunga might be a bit peeved that they were gearing up for a run at the premiership, and now they're gonna be fighting to make finals in Div 4.

It depends on how the clubs feels its situated, on and off the field. We were offered to go up to Div 2 when Edwardstown went to the SFL and like you guys the coaching staff and committee decided it was better to stay in Div 3. We finished 4th and were offered the spot when Kilburn initially said no, but they then decided to go up to Div 2.

We won the Div 3 flag that year (2009) and have been in Div 2 since, so in the end it was a good decision for us. But who's to say any club taking up the chance to be promoted wont have a successful season in the higher Div.

Why would you say no? Want to be a big fish in a little pond?
Is marbles joining you?

It is also possible that they believe that this season could follow a similar path to last years when they won 1 game in Div 4 (being the last one). Such a performance might have negative impacts on senior & junior player development.

Hence making it a good call for the club & the division.
Completely opposite to your side, that finishes 10th every year, isn't good enough to be in the top 8 of the SFL (which should be division 1), but still feels entitled to be treated as the same & further push down those below you. As a result, a majority from outside, and a significant number from within continue to see your league as a bit of a joke.

Sometimes there is a bigger picture than immediate gains.

Re: Snacks - The Good, The Average and The BAD

Problem with eating six small meals a day is that you are more likely to over eat in total for the day.
So eat less than that you think? That makes life even harder for me! FFS! :lol:

snacking isn't actually bad, you can even snack on the "unhealthy" stuff as well. The problem is the amount you eat, while you think it's ok to snack on something healthy too much can actually be bad. If you eat only "healthy meals" but your over your maintenance level of calories by 1000 your still going to put on weight. What you really need to do is work out your maintenance calories and how much your eating a day.

If your having trouble reducing your meal size try drinking a glass of water before each meal. When your hungry drink a glass of water before you eat anything. Put your meals on a smaller plate or bowl. Cut your meal into smaller pieces. And plan your meals ahead and try to eat them at the same time everyday. These will all make it easier to cut down on meal sizes.

Yep your 120% correct.

That's where I have found the protein shakes as a handy snack as I find them quiet filling and it has helped reduce my portion size, plus I was a huge iced coffee fan and it has helped ease that craving.

Please, please, please, please, please don't take this as an attack on your post but me personally (work in a facility that has a health club, not a personal trainer though but does a lot of membership sales, tours etc as part of my role, was 30kg heavier and have now dropped 16% of my body fat and a lot of that is thanks to kickinits advice on lifting, now uses a gym 4 days a week religiously)

I find that a lot of personal trainers, health club professionals, nutritionists etc etc overwhelm people with to much information and make things far to confusing for the 'average person'. Part of the problem is the amount of information that is out there now, with ridiculous shows like biggest loser, websites etc im sure if I went looking on the net now I could info that suggests fruit is bad for you and eating chocolate is beneficial.

I found this to be the case with calorie counting and finding out maintenance levels. Going on different websites, apps or people and you will find a billion and 1 different answers. Calorie counting I found as well was also very hit and miss especially when making your own food, unless your going to weigh every piece you put in it.

I think the most effective lifestyle changes, diets whatever you want to call them are the simplest.

Eat 3 main meals a day, breakfast, lunch, dinner and then stick to 2 snack meals between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner. Start by changing to everything low fat (yes they can be full of sugar but generally they are better than the full bodied version) skim milk instead of full cream, wholemeal bread instead of white, pepsi max instead of pepsi, limit use of butter (you wont notice any difference not having butter on a ham and salad sandwich), cut down on sugar in coffee, drink low carb beers rather than full beers over a whole year that's a shit load of calories less than your usual eating etc

I prefer lifting as the best form of calorie burning but if you cant get to a gym aim for twenty minutes of exercise a day and make sure you push yourself even if that means just going for a brisk walk.

And most importantly MAINTAIN and do so CONSISTENTLY.

I lost my first 20 kilos over two years without stepping foot in a gym (I could have lost it quicker no doubt but what I have done is create a maintable lifestyle for me) by purely eating smarter and doing abit of extra exercise. It has now become standard for me and the sight of a whopper or big mac makes me feel ill in the stomach.

Its only in the last 9 months that I have started to take the gym serious and get real in depth with nutrition to the point of working out how much protein, carbs, fats percentage I need per meal.

Start simple and make it a lifestyle change rather than a quick diet. Once you start to get results you will be hooked and never look back.

sorry for the long post just bored at home and got on a roll.

Being a Division 5 footballer, who is in the bottom 10% of kicking efficiency in my team, I still take offense to that statement.

Re: Things that you rate!

Spent the morning escorting a couple of cub scouts through suburbia collecting for the Red Cross.

At one house a lady in a headscarf (i.e. apparently muslim) and her two small kids had just come out of their front door when the cubs walked up their drive. On being solicited for cash, the mother replied "oh I'm sorry I don't have any money on me". She then asked her kids, "would you like to give your pocket money to the Red Cross? The money will help people who need it." Both kids enthusiastically agreed. A shiny $2 coin was produced - it appeared to be the only thing in the mother's purse - and both kids bickered over who would be the one who got to put it in the collection tin.

Made my day.

Re: The South Australian Political Landscape

The Libs have again clutched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Marshall's leadership under serious threat you'd expect now.

Watch the Hatfields and McCoys go hammer and tongs now, it will be on for young and old.

One things for certain though, even the Libs won't stuff up the next election and Labor will be removed in a landslide.

Weatherill now walks on water, Don Farrell now set for political obvilion.

Re: Clubs in strife

probably 3-4 things that stand out

1.seems lot more people are quitting the game due to age/work/family
2.most Junior clubs have had a drop in numbers overall (yes we all know about the super clubs they are not effected)
3.clubs are a stone throw away from each other around the north that i know of so we all after the same people
4.parents dont want there kids playing football as they think it is to rough

its a big issue the power house clubs dont help the situation one bit trying to take every single kid to there club and stuff the rest......i personally can see in the future north clubs will either fold or merge as the numbers drop of while we all love our club lot are just so near each other that it creates huge problems

Your points are very valid. I know of several kids who have given it away over the years purely because they weren't able to get a regular game and Mum & Dad didn't like it so pulled them out. Maybe time for the junior associations to set a limit on the number of kids clubs can have in their respective age groups so they do head off to another club for a game.


The WDJFL firstly changed the hugely successful format of Auskick U9 U11 U13 U15 to Auskick U8 U9 U10 U11 U12 U13 U14 U16 on the instruction of the biggest clubs in the league so the basically could harvest more players.
When this caused the very obvious fixture, timing and oval availability issues, the big clubs suggested a solution to go back to two year age group gaps but what would we they do with all these poor players they harvested up that won't fit back into the old system?

Well they had a great solution, make each grade have two divisions so they could field a team in each thus securing all the players they can grab and to ensure they had removed any competition from the surrounding clubs.

It sounds fantastic but what happens when the only clubs left are Henley and Port District, who will they play? Who would be interested in such a competition? And who will replace all the disenfranchised kids that will go play other sports?

The worst part of all of this is that clubs like Portland North Haven Rosewater etc not only sat back and let this happen but encouraged it.

If I had a hand in this I wouldn't sleep well at night.
