Re: 2013 - Player retirements/delistings/trade discussion

This is how the Wiz sees it.

Polec to Crows for B.Martin and McKernan
D.Martin to GWS for Patton (in the Franklin Deal)
Franklin to GWS for D.Marin (3 Way Trade- see above)
D.Thomas to Carlton for Yarran
E.Betts to Adelaide for Porplizia
As far as I'm aware they are all Restricted FA's

Trade Week will be the interesting part!

GWS don't want Martin, they said that yesterday. And Buddy can go their in free agency for nothing.
Why would Carlton trade for Thomas when he can go there for nothing via free agency?
Betts for the Porps?

None of your trades make any reasonable sense. Mckernan wants to go home, thats in Melbourne.

Re: Great Southern Football League

Imagine the uproar if the Mclaren V Victor game earlier in the year hadn't been overturned due to goal umpire error. If it didn't victor would have made finals and Goolwa would have missed out. Didn't change much for Mclaren though.

Compass to win by 4 goals
Goolwa to cause an upset by 2 goals, Mega Head to have a blinder if he plays

Re: The Drip Challenge

Always wanted to see how I'd go with this. Discipline and not getting greedy is obviously the key, but wheres the fun in that.

Bris V Coll Either W under 39.5 - $10 @ $1.25
NM V Ess Either W under 39.5 - $10 @ $1.25
Rich V Syd Either W under 39.5 - $10 @ $1.30
Multi up the above $10 @ $2.12

If all goes well $40 into a $19.29 profit

Re: Southern Football League

No disrespect to those comments at all but when does football have to discuss the issue of netball. Why do we have to care about that. Im sure that there are families in the SFL that have daughters that play netball and are at different venues and we never hear a winge about it. Also how many current men playing A Grade Football in the mentioned leagues have partners that play netball at the same time. Im sure their is some but is it really enough to listen to and not change football for the better? I think it is time for the older men that do a great job of governing their leagues become more open minded about football and less about their own back yard.[/quote]

The family orientation is what keeps the GSFL a strong league. That's why some 'recruits' play down there, because they can take their wife and kids to the same club and play on the same day. Why would you change that because several other leagues cannot manage their own backyard?

Re: Great Southern Cricket Association

Hows the new Mt Compass Turf Pitch playing?
Looking at the scores its either crap or are Mt Compass just plain ordinary ?

I think you'll find that the Compass A Grade would be scraping for a finals spot in the B Grade. Besides Bryce Garrard (who's probably 15 years past his best) there is no one that can hold a willow and dig in for consistent scores of 20-30 plus.

The pitch is playing alright, the opposition don't seem to have trouble.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19)

My wife and I have been in the process of adopting a child for the last 4 years from Korea. It's a crazy long process, but long story short we finally got our final court date in Seoul last month to get Judge approval to take custody of our 16 month old boy. We had to come home whilst we waited for the court to process it. Meanwhile everything started to escalate over the last 2 weeks. We got our final approval though last week, and booked the first available flight to get here. Just took custody of him today. Now we're waiting for the Aus Embassy to process his Aus emergency passport so we can fly home. Trying to find a flight that gets home is getting thinner and thinner by the day. Already a very stressful process, but this COVID-19 has turned the world into panic stations. Tell you what though, the Korean's have been so bloody good at reducing impact so quickly. Streets, subways, public places etc have so many less people tank 4 weeks ago when we were first here.

When we do find a way home, we have to self isolate for 14 days, but we we're going to be 'cocooning' our boy trying to form a bond asap so not all bad. Might have to call on the SAfooty community to deliver some beer over our back fence :D

PS, the boy is going well so far. Eaten, bathed and in bed. Only woke up after 30 mins with a few tears but settled again in 10 minutes.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19)

We were called form SA Health 4 days ago. They let us know our flight back on the 17th from Sydney to Adelaide that there was a known positive COVID-19 result on the same flight. Here we were worrying about our trip home from Korea :lol: Not sure if I said it before but Sydney airport was a disgrace in how they were organised, the system has been put in the spotlight a bit more recently with the cruises and recent travelers back into Sydney, shambles.

Anyway, SA Health ran through questions etc, had a good talk to 'Dean' about our situation etc. He was good. Near the end he said, we will follow up with yours and your wife's phone number daily to see if you have any symptoms developing (my wife had a cough and got tested, she returned a negative result a few days ago). We have not heard from them since :shock: So the system still has some floors. I just hope they're putting their focus on the imbeciles around the state.

On a positive, our adopted son (1.5yrs) is bonding well with us and our little girl (2.5yrs). We officially get out of home isolation midnight tomorrow. but there's not much to do, looking forward to taking the kids and dog for a walk to Semaphore beach.
