Re: Chopper Read dies

Good riddance. Like Ned Kelly, scumbag and thug. Made famous by their notoriety.

On the other hand, he was able to turn his life around. Better that he makes a crust from the speaking circuit and book royalties than from standing over nightclub owners and cutting toes, wouldn't you think?

I reckon I read somewhere that he donated some or all of the money he made from one of his books to a charity... the "crop a cop" thing where coppers shave their heads for some cause.

I can respect what he did in his later life, if nothing else.

Re: 2014 SANFL Grand Final underlights on a Friday night?

Leigh Whicker reiterated the idea of having the GF on a Friday night prior to the AFL GF.
What are the main advantages for the SANFL of having the game played at this time?
Whicker is a deadset idiot.

Ideally the SANFL preliminary final would be played on the Friday night before the other league's grand final. This would allow the SANFL Grand Final to be played on the following Saturday afternoon, as the prelim winner would have more than a week's break.

The Grand Final must NEVER be played at night. Playing it in the afternoon leaves time for celebrations afterwards.

Re: Things that make you laugh

I just went to HR and told them that I'm not apologising. She was apparently really upset and felt shamed. It's like breaking the law and then complaining because you're on the news (which is rather ironic in this case given her occupation). Just don't do it in the first place.

She isn't upset and ashamed because of what you did, she is upset and ashamed because she got caught!

Recently I indicated while travelling next to another car, slowed down to 50 to let the other car get ahead, and then shifted lanes in behind him.

The other driver began making finger gestures, then changed lanes and let me pass so he could hurl a gobful of abuse at me through his open window.

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014

Towards the mid to late '80's the VFL clubs were going broke from overspending and mismanagement (sound familiar?) so were screaming for a solution, ultimately called expansion. Following Brisbane and WC, the VFL made overture after overture to convince the SA "old boys club" to join. Hell they even renamed the comp the AFL as a final olive branch but the answer remained no. This from a football commission that had delivered such insular, well thought out strategies like the Player Retention Scheme, giving a high value Superannuation to a bunch of footballers that were never going to leave anyway.

The SA Football Commission acts in 3 ways; no decision, handballed decision, or cr@p decision. And you wonder why I have ZERO time for them?

Pop quiz!

You're in charge of a near-bankrupt state football league looking to expand into other states in a bald-faced attempt to resurrect your league at the expense of the sport in every other corner of the nation. One of the major state leagues is steadfastly refusing your demands, costing you a mountain of advertising revenue as it prevents your "product" (as you now call the game) reaching a national audience. What will you do?

A) relent on the four(?) million dollar "license fee", which was only ever a means to extort further money out of the Croweaters to further bolster your coffers, or

B) drop the "V" from the league name.

Come on beeny, you've got a 50% chance, have a crack...

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014


Wait, it's not ok for a club or league to think about it's own best interests? Isn't that what we are all asking to happen? For the SANFL to put themselves before the integrity of the AFL? Why is it one group shouldn't put themselves first and the others should? AFL clubs have done absolutely nothing wrong. Their officials are doing exactly what they should in getting the best they can for their club. I just wish the SANFL directors who voted yes did the same thing.

The Crows stood over the SANFL with veiled threats of withdrawing/limiting financial support and media interest. The Crows mouthpiece lied to the directors ("the vote must be unanimous for it to work"). And this is "absolutely nothing wrong"?

Reckon I'll teach my kid to extort lunch money from his classmates by making physical threats against their welfare. Clearly there is "absolutely nothing wrong" with this; if the other kids give up their lunch money then it's entirely their fault - they could have said no!

There is a nontrivial difference between rational self-interest and blind selfishness. The AFL clubs have pissed in the bed that they wish to sleep in; they might be acting in their own best interests, but without any consideration of the big picture or any long-term vision.

Re: Adelaide Crows Reserves 2014

the funny thing about this situation is how everyone is still here. If it was that bad and you had been so screwed over like your all carrying on about, then you wouldn't be here, you would of walked away by now. So either walk away or get over it. It's done and won't be change.

Time to invoke Godwin's Law...

By the early 1940s, many denizens of Western Europe had walked away from the situation - i.e. fled before the Panzer divisions rolled over the bridge.

Some who stayed accepted the situation and made the best of it. Consider Marshal Pétain and the collaborationist Vichy Republic.

Some stayed but resisted the occupation.

Likewise many will stay here - but don't expect them to express anything but vitriol for the occupation, the occupiers, and the collaborators.

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.
