Re: Para Districts Cricketer gets 5 year ban

Cool story Froffies, don't let some facts get in the way of it.

The said person wrote "The PDCA Executive is run by a bunch of kiddy fiddlers". A couple of executive members took offence and called for a meeting.

Pleading that he was hacked would not of worked as it still hasn't been removed and he has stated that he wrote it.

A brawl took place on the field, no one from the suspended players club gave any evidence to defend themselves nor did anyone reply to a please explain or attend a tribunal, the club accepted the mandatory two match early plea sentence to which the said player went on a rampage on the PDCA facebook page and then pleaded ignorance to not knowing of such a social media policy which is on the PDCA home page and distributed to all clubs at the pre-season meeting.

Some people should just grow up and learn what is socially acceptable behaviour.

Think you'll find he might be banned from the Pdca for 5 years not cricket. But frothies should be able to let us know.

That is correct, it's basically saying that the PDCA is sick of his crap and would rather him go and play elsewhere.

Re: SAAFL Division 7 2014


How does training have nothing to do with it you have rocks in your head! It's all about fitness and skills without that your hopeless, and for the other teams who cares if your playing some c grade clubs most of them go up and down in there a grade and b grade I know a few blokes from Henley that played a grade, but now just wanna have a kick with there mates, but yet they still get asked to play a's cause there absolute guns!

zedman has a great football brain, he's just stating that you guys will canter it in with the talent in the side. Unless you all put on 15 kilo's and everyone takes up smoking 2 packets a day anything short of a premiership is under-achieving.
There's plenty of work to do and as players you can't take any game lightly but your group is head and shoulders better than any other in the division.

Re: Junior Football

It's dog eat dog in the NEMJFA with some clubs, my lads team played their local rival last year in under 8's and if there were scores kept we were up by 3 points at 3 qtr time. My son and another kid got tagged for the last quarter so the coach moved my lad to centre half forward 2 minutes in to see if the tag was for real........................it was.
HAHA! WTF?!? A tag in u/8's?? That's serious business!

When I was playing under 8's/9's there was obviously some serious competitiveness, and learning important aspects like manning up - i remember nothing better than running out and spending 3 min before the bounce bumping your opponent to try and prove who was the toughest :lol: - but never ever ever seen a tag!

Yeah mate, it was a full on tag!!! Best thing was that he kicked 2 goals in a minute when he moved forward. I'll let you know when we play the same team this season and you can see for yourself, it will happen again. It's only a few minutes from your place.

Re: Junior Football


I think you may have come into this half way through it as Level 1 coaching accreditation for a modis coach is the base of why I started this whole conversation.

You are probably the perfect person to answer this as you have coached modis & done the course as have I.

Should a modis coach have to do the Level 1 accreditation or is an introductory coaching accreditation sufficient. Personally I think the introductory course is sufficient as the Level 1 is aimed at U13's & up & doesn't have anything to do with coaching modis IMO.

No, it has no relevance, I think they just tie it all in together for convenience & generally a police clearance check is associated with it. I learnt nothing from the session and switched off when the speaker suggested teaching kids to kick with both feet is not recommended.

Re: SAAFL division 5 2014

Regardless of if clubs have valuables bags or not, I think the underlying point is it is disappointing that someone would stoop to that level and that you can't have confidence in leaving your valuables in your own bag while you play.

In a perfect world perhaps....but in lieu of.....common-sense would be a shopping bag.....keys, wallets, watches,....locked in a car boot...keys in coaches pocket.....home or away... :)

Re: SAAFL division 6 2014

Everybody wanted to know why the wheels fell off, someone from their inner sanctum gave his opinion and gets shot down in flames.

If BP & the players were happy out there, they'd still be out there, they aren't the first club to have a rift between juniors and seniors and they sure as hell wont be the last.

I've always thought that Angle Vale went about things in the wrong manner but it really has nothing to do with me so who am I to judge, I thought it was always going to be hard once their core players retired and big Steve moved on. I did think that they'd still pull through given the growth in Munno Para West, the great suburb that Angle Vale has become and their facilities have the potential to match it with any other club.

I too wish Angle Vale all the best for the future, maybe they should meet up with some other local presidents and get a feel for how they operate, take notes and go back to the drawing board to come up with a structured plan.

They would've been an ideal candidate for the 8th team in the APFL but that seems an eternity away now compared to a year or two ago.

Re: SAAFL division 5 2014

Thanks to TOS for being involved in our past players day last Saturday.
A great day for us, considering you beat us on the same day last year.
A tough day in the office but your second half was a lot better - best of luck for the rest of the year and hopefully you can find those wins you need.

Eagles looking pretty good, at the minute.
There seems to be no taking anything for granted among the players and Payney has them purring, and possibly a lot further ahead than expected at this stage of his time with the club.
I've never heard a Elizabeth side as loud as this one, either. The boys are very vocal and good at getting each other going.
There's a good feeling.

Also, I've never seen three such young sides for the club. Great to see. Bodes well for the future and there's a real strong connection between all of the young fellas.

The B grade are sitting well but I reckon they can play a lot better. Just doing what they've got to do at the moment.

They certainly have exceeded expectations, it's great to see a young bunch growing in confidence and playing their own brand of footy......and winning.

Mallala strong winners over Virginia in all grades, just one matter>why did the rams have a 12yr old kid boundary umpire on his own both A/Reserve grades, they must have older people somewhere able of doing it.

Isn't there a league rule that for A grade the boundary umps are supposed to be over a certain age to stop young kids doing it?

The whole boundary umpiring thing is a joke most weeks. You see people doing it bare-footed carrying a can of coke or kicking the ball with their mates near the boundary miles away from the play.

Some horrid spectators at the Elizabeth V Gaza U/15 game yesterday at Eastern Park.
How do people think it's ok to heckle a 14/15 year old lad and put such a dampener on him he wants to leave the ground.
To you knobs,you are fruit loops.
Well done to the ground marshals on shutting them up.
Sitting on the outer side of the ground they were in full view and every word could be heard.
Idiots.
Hope their club deals with the fools.

I've seen all sorts of crap at the arse end of this season, the NEMJFA should seriously contemplate a no calling out policy except for coaches to give instructions, parents and spectators should be limited to applauding, the minority ruin it for the majority and clubs turn a blind eye to the bad eggs that they harbor.
It's kids footy, it's about the kids development, it's not a showcase for others to be entertained. Spectators should just spectate IMO.
Whenever I've watched my kids play (if I wasn't coaching them at the time) I'd set myself up on the other side of the ground and just sit there and watch, I'd get jibes about it but I flat out told the other parents that I don't wish to be associated with the dickhead comments that come out of other parents mouths.
