Re: Death Penalty

What about mothers that kill their kids?

Life in prison! This has to be one of the most heinous crimes imaginable. Kids are the most innocent in our community and instinctively rely upon parents for protection. For a parent to not only neglect this duty but to defy it through the commit of murder is an horrendous crime and the ultimate betrayal of connatural duty and instinct.

Re: Things that make you laugh

Bob Carr - 1st class w@nk3r: https://au.news.yahoo.com/a/22524614/im-no-snob-insists-bob-carr/
In his Diary of a Foreign Minister, Mr Carr complains about not being given pyjamas on a business-class flight and has compared business seats to the "trans-Atlantic slave trade". But he's told reporters at his book launch in Sydney on Thursday that it's not snobbery, "just a view that life is a learning experience".

Tips for Bob:
1. Fly economy and add $200 for an overnight break on long flights.
2. Travel in comfortable casual clothes and change when you get to the hotel at the other end.
3. Don't expect sympathy from people who don't fly Business Class, let alone First, especially when they were paying for your travel!

Re: Round 2 - Central v Norwood Post Game

my god you guys are idiots sometimes. surely the reserves debate cant permeate every single thread on this forum can it?

was at home watching it on TV, but i certainly enjoyed the game. centrals just seemed to be able to link up a lot better, their ball movement and pressure was first class.

from a couch potato's point of view, it was great to have a triple header of footy on channel 7. they made the right decision in terms of broadcasts to start the game earlier so it did not clash with the power game, but messing with the timeslots too much might not be a good thing, especially for crowds, as others have mentioned.

was great to see SANFL get prominence on Ch7 though.

Can't blame him for asking. A lot of you that follow the power now are second hand Collingwood supporters remember ;)

Oh no, not this little black duck. Port Adelaide has been in my bloodlines for 4 generations, it was only Jason Dunstall that alerted me to Hawthorn and they were my team in the VFL/AFL until Port Adelaide joined. I never truly followed the Hawks with the passion of the PAFC though.

Re: Glenelg vs Crows Reserves - Post Game

Crowd number was very surprising - have to say that the atmosphere wasn't what you'd expect from a 9000+ crowd however.
(I know, I know, whinge, whinge, whinge) - but it's true.

I think it is fair to suggest that the large attendance was due to a number of factors & will be interesting to see the 'return' fixture crowd.
Walker coming back, ANZAC Day Public Holiday, No local AFL games, Night Game.
That said, it was 'pleasing' to see a bumper crowd but in terms of revenue; they didn't have to pay to get in do they?

If there was any doubt about the Cows Reserves Team being about 'development' - taking Walker off toward the end of the 3rd Quarter (I don't recall seeing him in the last) after he kicked his 3rd goal to get them within 3 pts was a significant pointer to the 'Integrity' question.

The point must also be made that the difference in 'top up' players between the Cows & PAPs Reserves is massive.
The Cows have Ammos who clearly have no idea & aren't up to the 'pace' of SANFL, whilst Port have tried & tested players such as Summerton & the like. What the Cows did show was their ability to move the ball out of defence (as a result of many players on the AFL list & their obvious advantage in speed & pace) was significantly better than Glenelg.

Had fun with what Snouts were there - one Cows supporter behind us was very vocal initially but surprisingly he didn't stay around long :roll:
Most Cows supporters appeared reluctant to get behind their team - despite the numbers.
A bit like what Wedgie said about the North game; they appeared somewhat embarrassed to be there.

Great to catch up with Steve & to talk footy with Shane, Dave, Darren & Gerry
Bays looked pretty good actually - they moved the ball well & obviously playing at home helped them.

Is the 'doomsday' idea dead?
I still think we need to wait until 1/2 way through the season to judge, but 9000+ people last night suggests perhaps @ this stage.

None of the Audit Commissioners have any idea about social welfare or making sure everyone gets a fair go.

It was just a vehicle to justify a budget, rather then a independent audit report. The Commission Chair is even using the same script as Hockey FFS.

Re: Channel 7 announced by SANFL as preferred telecast partn

I would imagine it had everything to do with the ABC's preferred time for games. Their one and only window for state Football nationally is Saturday afternoons, and there was no flexibility at all with this.

As for the inevitable dig re Crows and Port, (*yawn*) I struggle to see how Centrals v Norwood, Centrals v South, Glenelg v South or this week Eagles v Glenelg relates to Adelaide or Port Adelaide. Some people on here will grasp at anything for a no AFL in the SANFL whinge, even where an argument does not exist!

SA Football Greatest Team

Rucci, i guess in the same vein as the Herald Sun team, has compiled his greatest SA football team.

http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/sport/afl/michelangelo-rucci-unveils-south-australias-greatest-football-team/story-fnia3nqh-1226910570462

Pretty good team, though it astounds me that Andrew McLeod doesnt get into the team. Maybe its my bias, but I honestly think he is a better footballer than Gavin Wanganeen. I think that McLeod missed out on a brownlow, getting close a number of times, kind of tarnishes his record a bit.

Also, some of the older members might be able to correct me, but i thought Rick Davies was a ruck-forward?

He also just seems to have picked out a few from the early 1900s that won a few macgareys and decided they should get into the team.

Re: Things that give you the sh1ts

pissed off that my youngest has to wait till next year to start kindergarten as he turns 4 in october yet the indigenous boy down the street has already started and is not even 3.........wheres the equal opportunity in that ffs :evil:

it smacks of inequality doesnt it...

i think initially the different rules for indigenous kids was brought in to encourage the parents to put them in education, also because of the transient nature, a lot of indigenous families moved regularly which made it difficult for the children because they missed out on the necessary education and this meant that they had more time to instill some basic principals into the indigenous children. I think another factor is the socialisation, giving the indigenous kids the opportunity to have positive social interraction is paramount in them breaking the cycle of alcoholism, drug dependency and career unemployment.

it is all such a perpetual cycle though and i dont think we'll ever have an answer that everyone will subscribe to.

due to my heritage my kids are indigenous and we have the ability to put our kids into kindy at 3 instead of 4. My kids are more south american than they are aboriginal as Mrs NG is Uruguayan, but if the option is there i'm gonna take it. luckily for me lil miss nugget is pretty clever and fits right in with the older kids, NG Jnr is only 10 months so jury's out on his intellect, i just hope he takes after the missus too!

The other silly part about this is the single admission for schools now. i think the deadline is like May 31 so if your kids are born prior to that they can be enrolled that year, if not then they have to wait until the next year... Surely they can manage 2 intakes a year and if the kids in the second half dont quite adapt to schooling by the end of the year can stay in reception and those that take off and grasp everything in that second half can scoot through to year 1...

Re: Crows 2014

Talia would be a certainty as the AA CHB if the team was chosen today.

Just read that the glove has had 1 goal kicked on him in the past 4 weeks. That's Lachy Henderson, Travis cloke, Tom lynch and some Melbourne player either Dawes pedo or frawls


Oh please. I assume so would Danger, Sloan, Eddie and Tex. A certainty is a little bit rich I would think. I have been to every Crows game and he has been consistent and honest but hardly a match winner. That post reeks of Crows bias. its not as if he breaks lines or sets the game alight. He just does a good job blanketing and the list you have mentioned apart from Cloke who was horribly out of form is hardly note worthy.

Re: Crows 2014

Darren Jarman is as good a big game player I have seen. Had a shocker in 91 but in 97/98 finals was an absolute machine and single handedly handed Victoria's arse to them on a silver platter in 93 in the SOO final in the wet on the G.

My company's Managing Director who is based in Melbourne says his skills by foot are the best he's ever seen (Mad Collingwood supporter) and said his effort in the 97 gf in the last was the biggest influence on a match by an individual in the games history in terms of the overall result in such a short amount of time.

**** we were lucky with our top 12 around that time. Probably did good to get 2 flags because if we had good depth we should have won more. The top end was out and out class.
