I love how virtually every post contains an unrelated comment about how rich/sexy/interesting/well connected/daring/virile he is, AS WELL AS some comment vaguely related to the topic. Eg (something along the lines of...) "...after I ravaged the sweet blonde haired lassie she gasped the question if I enjoyed her as much as her younger fashion model sister. I deem it ungentlemanly to let a lady down, especially one so enraptured, so I merely raised an eyebrow and ravaged her again.
I left her purring between the sheets, then smoothed my full locks down and donned my leather jacket. My vintage Harley had me on time to meet my rich lawyer friend at the Burnside Shops, and I don't care much if passers by found my attire unsuitable."

Re: WG GRACE

Grace was probably the best batsman in the world and close to the best bowler in the world for an incredibly long period of over 25 years.
Remember also that he was at his best before he played his first Test at the age of 32.

His 1871 season is arguably as dominant as any of Bradman's seasons

In all first-class matches in 1871, a total of 17 centuries were scored and Grace accounted for 10 of them, including the first century in a first-class match at Trent Bridge. He averaged 78.25 and the next best average by a batsman playing more than a single innings was 39.57 , barely more than half his figure. His aggregate for the season was 2,739 and this was the first time that anyone had scored 2,000 first-class runs in a season; Harry Jupp was next best with 1,068. Grace's highest score was 268 for South v. North at The Oval. He took 79 wickets at 17.02 with a best analysis of 7–67. He claimed five wickets in an innings 5 times and twice had 10 in a match

Personally I would have been very surprised if he hadn't made the team.
Its a test XI, so what he did in a North Vs Souths game is irrelevant

Thats not quite right from my understanding Mr Beefy
They are celebrating 150 years which takes it back to 1863. Test cricket only started in 1877.
Therefore with the above stats i think it's a more than fair call to include Grace in the best 11
In other words, he had his best season years before Test cricket had even been invented.
Sure, the books indicate he played a huge part in the development of the game. This is also indicates the game was under developed when he dominated. But just because he had the idea to play balls off his legs (for example) doesn't mean he'd be in the best 6 bats of all time. You have to question the staff the game was at when you hear such fundamentals weren't yet standard.
Call him the father of cricket, okay. But surely those who followed excelled him under much higher standards.

Re: Benson resigns at Sturt

Thanks for the link Hawks 21.
I tried posting a reply to this topic a while back but I somehow screwed it up using the new site format.
Basically though, I cannot comment on his tenure as CEO as I'm not privy to the ins and outs of running the club.
But I'll remember Benson as a member of that 1988 team under Mervyn Keane, the one that promised so much future before it got sliced up. I also remember him putting up his hand to help when we were in deep shit and about to fold in the mid 90's.
Glad to read of his achievement, hopefully the club will be in better shape for his work.

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014

Adelaide CROWval= OMFG!!!!!!!

Another chapter in the 'only in Adelaide' series.

Could you imagine a Melbourne based AFL team 're-naming' the MCG!!!

:oops:
The Western Bulldogs were referring to Docklands as "Doglands" when that stadium was first used. I think one of the other tenants was doing a similar thing as well. As cringeworthy as the Ravens.
At least Dog and lands are actual words. Crowval is forced, try-hard bullshit. It rings of tired cliches like "something to crow about" and makes me think of that Foodland ad that came out when the Crows first started, the one that had all the Foodland staff cheering in slow motion, while a voice over assured us how much Foodland supports the Crows. I'd say the sort of people that think "Crowval" is witty, would be the same sort that need a giant sign to tell them when to cheer at a football game.

Re: Sheffield Shield SA v WA - Nov 13-16


Nothing to do with fact he's taken 700+ wickets ;) Tall poppy syndrome in Australia - gotta love it :D

Seriously?? You think his action was ok?
I can see his point though
Murali was reported twice in his career for chucking and Botha has been reported 4 times.
If Botha played for South Africa or India he would be labelled the biggest cheat in cricket yet because he plays for an Aussie side people consider it ok that he cheats, talk about double standards
Is this a joke?
Before "Murali-gate" there were nothing but straight arm bowlers. I can only think of that poor Aussie bloke who got done in England for chucking. Was it Meckiff? Anyway, umpire called him, he never played again.
Murali, however, gets called for chucking in Australia and his whole team threatens to return home mid-tour! They'd rather call the game into disrepute than accept the verdict. Slow mo analysis of his action confirmed he was indeed chucking the bloody thing! But the consequences that the Sri-Lankans had threatened forced the ICC's hand. Suddenly it's okay to chuck. The huge number of wickets he took over his career seems to confirm there is an advantage to chucking.
How can you defend that? They aggressively pushed for rule changes so Murali could play, of course others would follow once the advantages of chucking became legal.
Piss weak by the ICC. But absolute bullshit from Sri Lanka.

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014



And it's a valid point that some people don't follow the AFL that much, but those people would be in the vocal minority and sometimes we have to adapt and love with the changes.

Yeh right, 40,000 Crows fans and 20,000 Power fans can't be wrong. But at the end of the day they still have their Crows, Power and AFL. Why do they need the SANFL too? So far as I'm concerned SANFL fans are the majority in the SANFL comp, and AFLites claiming some sort of right of dominion should apply only to their specific comp.
In a nutshell, I don't care how many you number in your comp, you're not welcome in ours.

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014

I'd rather see the extra money spent on interstate AFL memberships put back in to an SANFL club. At least an SA AFL club some of that money is retained in this state.

For example, 5500 SA based Bombers memberships going towards building a shiny new building at Windy Hill and a batch of the latest peptides, yippee. All so you can do a fist pump on the lounge and feel a part of it?

Perhaps if the interstate clubs put a percentage of members money from the state they receive towards grass roots footy in that state it might be of benefit? Or does that happen already? If so, I digress.

Of course people can do what they like with their own money, but I find it a shame that for most their AFL team that they once followed for the hell of it and secondary to their SANFL team has now become number 1 at the expense of their SANFL team. This is every bit a factor in belittling the SANFL as Crows Reserves sides are.
Well Aerie, I love the Blues. This alone was enough, but throw that streak by Helen Domenico in the 82 grand final, and it's hard to ignore a club that can produce such class! Then Motley played for them also, but I was already a Carlton fan by then.
When the Crows entered it confused things for a while. For many years they were like state team, and I have a lot of time for Blighty, so I have great memories of the two flags. However, the Crows have pissed me off in many ways of late, 1 being a stupid reliance on a scoreboard to tell the fans when to cheer, another being its arrogant muscling into our comp.
I'm a Carlton fan again. I can no longer identify with the Crows. I donated my Crows scarf to poor people, so if you ever see a documentary about Japan's homeless and see one of them in a Crows scarf you'll u derstand what that's about.

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014



BTW, I became a born again Carlton fan after the Crows succeed in their muscle drive into the SANFL. I followed Carlton until the moment the VFL invaded the SANFL, now the Crows have committed the same sin, I cannot follow them any longer .
The AFL is nowhere near as important for me as the SANFL, I wouldn't swap clubs otherwise.
I still say you're questions ARE irrelevant to my ORIGINAL POST.
The AFL reserves sides playing in the SANFL IS an agreed upon deal, it was voted in by 6 of 8 clubs (which was the majority needed). The SANFL may well have had a long resistance to the AFL, but not anymore, again it was them that agreed to letting the crows & power reserves in. They had the chance to say no but didn't.
In my opinion the VFA became the second best comp in Victoria the moment the VFL/AFL pushed it's reserves into the VFA and everyone changed names.
If you don't follow Carlton any longer (your words) then my original post is not aimed at you. The line before that however says you are a born again Carlton follower so you've contradicted yourself a bit.
You also say the crows have committed the same sin as the VFL (which is Carlton included) actually backs up what I've said, the crows & power have done the same as the other now AFL/then VFL clubs.
How about we agree to disagree so this can get back on topic. I say its hypocrisy, you say its not. We are both allowed our opinions.

Yes I think we're going to end up disagreeing. That's fair enough. But I'll give it one more go.
Your original post was about hypocrisy. Some posters have a go at the Crows for doing what their own nominated AFL club does. My points have mainly been describing how the two situations are different (ie. AFL involvement in the VFL vs the Crows' SANFL push). The reason for this is that if the two situations are different, then posters cannot be accused of hypocrisy for treating the two situations differently.
If you follow, and agree with the above then you'll also understand the relevance of my posts to your original argument.

BTW I was using the term "born again Carlton fan" as meaning originally a Carlton fan, and now a Carlton fan again. My stint as a Crows fan signified a period where Victoria (not Carlton on its own, my understanding is that the Vic clubs were against expansion) did all it could to force the SANFL into joining. My beef then was with the AFL hierarchy, personified by everything Victorian, and South Australia being represented by the Crows. I carried a soft spot for Carlton all these years but I never held them responsible for what happened, it was just that a team more relevant to my situation appeared. But that situation no longer exists. I do hold the Crows responsible for this final insult, they're far more culpable than Carlton ever were (as Ian put it so well "they were operating within a system created by the AFL", hence blame lays with them, not the individual clubs, hence difference, hence relevance, hence not hypocrisy).
Anyway, it's all done and dusted now and we will see if it all turns out so bad or not.
P.S. You are a good many rungs of the ladder above Beeny. I don't even bother with him anymore. Everything's about how everyone's picking on Port, or how Port saved the SANFL or he's hanging shit on the entire SANFL comp. Dancing a little jig at our misery.

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

A: Everything, according to most AFL-ites, we are whinging just for the sake of it.

C: Rationality is a good thing. But when we worried that the AFL reserves would be in the SANFL as early as 2013, many laughed us off as being irrational, it'll never happen etc..

I happen to love the SANFL and I really don't get why we need to be advised by people who clearly have no feel for the comp about how we should react to the continued insults inflicted on it.

Double header at Adelaide oval

My apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere.
I would love to see SANFL at the Adelaide oval during the minor round. I'm unsure of the costs involved with using the oval, but if it was a double header involving say Sturt vs Norwood then Glenelg vs North, we'd be giving ourselves the best chance of breaking even or making a profit. In past years I would have included Port in the equation, but their supporters get to see their side play at this magnificent venue every second week,also I have never seen a top side with such a small turnout at Unley, ever, I don't think they would turn up in any case.
I'm sure there'd be good reasons against it. Loss of home gate takings being one, and the figures might be too prohibitive, but I'm sure the novelty factor of SANFL at the Adelaide oval along with our top four crowd drawing teams putting on the show could potentially pull12,000 or so through the gate. For my part I'd attend even if Sturt weren't playing, and I reckon many other neutrals would also turn up.
At the very least it deserves to be considered by the powers that be IMO.

Never studied much economics, but I really don't get how investing billions in thousands of Aussie jobs and producing the desired product is an inferior choice to sending billions of dollars overseas and receiving an equally good product.
Of course there's been debate about the quality of product that each party could make, some claiming the aussie subs would be better, others the Japanese, then the issue of costs with both sides claiming the opposite's product to be more expensive and on and on with current production delays, which is also justified by experts, who claim that's to be expected and will be remedied as the workforce becomes more experienced.
The issues go on and to my mind, with good and bad touted with either option then surely spending billions, keeping the cash HERE and creating jobs is far more attractive.

i shit you not, the roosters management would rather shut the club completely than reverse an unpopular decision. i wonder if they will stick to those guns or if it was all bluff to try to convince what they saw as a small handful of diseneters....

Re: Port's use of runner/physio v Sturt to be investigated

A couple of years ago, the magpies began openly transferring power reserves players to within their own ranks, in open defiance of the rules. The SANFL responded by giving them a whole team used specifically for that purpose with special operating rules unique to that side. I am now wondering if this current development is a precursor to port being allowed extra players on the field, "for the benefit of the wider footballing community ", of course.

I think you should remind the moron that far from moving beyond it, his club recently joined the second rate feeder league when they entered their bloody reserves team in it!
You can also tell him if he really does wish to move beyond it, then good luck finding another second rate feeder league to accept his idiot filled reserves side which seems to have trouble understanding which comp it is in.

Re: Rnd 9 - Sturt v Adelaide @ P.Motely Oval (Sun 7/6)

I've seen some great footy by the Blues at Peter Motley Oval this year. We have also been patchy at times yet still come up with the two points. It would be great to see us put together 4 quarters of our best with the twin goal sneaks Hone and Penfold taking home a big bag between them. Coad will need to fire as his best is very hard to stop and Kurtze, like a fine old Cab Sav is nearing his best vintage and been a real solid performer this year. There's been a consistently reasonable turn out of home support this year at old Unley Town and I'm tipping a crowd of about 2,000 Sturt supporters and a serious half handful of ravens, relatives of the players perhaps, to round attendance out to around a big 2,005.

Just to summarise, crows have their three or four worst players of about amateur level, replaced by three or four fringe AFL players, but it might work in our favour because the crows might manage their players by resting them during crucial stages of the game AND we may be able to just rough them up a bit and they might question if it's really worth their while trying to win what is just a reserves game for them.

I haven't assumed they are all racist at all. Read my posts. I have said they can't complain if they are lumped in with the racists if they continue to allow themselves to be associated with them by booing.
My apologies if this is true. So much has been written on here, and today's paper was definitely spouting that line. It basically denies one side a voice, and turns a debate into a mess.

Re: Sydney Swans 2015

Poor article IMHO, someone telling Adam how he should act and feel. No one has that right.
The way hes been treated and the things he's been called wouldn't upset me either, but it doesn't give me the right to tell him how to feel and act.
On the whole the article related to how the author feels impacted by Goodes' actions .What's wrong with him offering some advice at the end ?

Re: Norwood v Crows 2.10 Saturday

Pretty funny odds for a 2nd v 8th game at 2nds home ground.
A side at full strength and full of pro's v a side at half strength and made up of part timers, nup Ravens should be $1.10 :D
That's it.
These are the moments where the farce is so highlighted. In a normal competition a side surging from the bottom of the table signifies new found belief,or that things have clicked between team mates or an exciting new prospect has found his feet, ready to take the next step step. This genuinely validates the competition because they've discovered "what it's all about". When you've got a team suddenly winning games because they're getting topped up from a multi million dollar reservoir of talent from the next level up....
Well I guess it's good for the AFL pros, isn't it? And that's the main thing. Lucky we've got them to tell us what's good for us too.

Re: R17: South v Adelaide Saturday 8 August @ Hickinbotham

I don't think we'll get any better leaving the cancer in.
Removal is the first step. Then a vigorous marketing campaign which emphasizes the importance of the SANFL as part of our historical suburban identity needs to be launched. I'd focus said campaign on a slogan of"real football" or something of the like, with catch phrases like "they played for the jumper", or "when there was nought left but heart, their forefathers held their ground against their hostile neighbors"... Just off the top of my head, I'm sure a marketing type could come up with lots of good stuff to reconnect the SANFL with its roots, emphasizing the honesty of the comp, it's attachment to the very streets we walk and its grand history. I believe the reapplication of the original values should go a long way of reversing the scourge of reserves boot camp from the comp's image.
