Re: GRAND FINAL SYDNEY VS WESTERN BULLDOGS

Thanks, being a 'shortie' I will try to get there early. However, I am just stoked to score a ticket and see the boys in their first GF since '54. Feeling like '95 with CDFC.! Hoping for a different result though! ;)
If you have a seat you don't need to get there early mate, I was talking about the standing area.

Good point, I think I am finding it hard to realise it is likely to be a seat - thought I would be only a chance for Standing Room.
Cheers

Enjoy mate. You'll love the experience. :-BD
Hopefully he doesn't enjoy it to much ;)

Re: GRAND FINAL SYDNEY VS WESTERN BULLDOGS

I would have given a medal to Dr Gary (nice mo) Zimmerman. He is there every game and been doing it for years. I bet his input has been highly valued in correctly diagnosing injuries and getting them back on the field.

We should remember you win the flag not the medal. And its a club that wins it not the representive(s) on the ground.

Re: GRAND FINAL SYDNEY VS WESTERN BULLDOGS

I see now that Beveridge has given the medal to the Bulldogs museum to display...fair dinkum this is getting out of hand.
People tend to forget how this guy treated a young player at the end of last year and ran him out of the club

The only thing that matters is what the Bulldogs think. It's their club, they can display whatever the hell they like. Is Beveridge's medal the property of the Australian public? No, it's not. It is his to do what he chooses. Some of you blokes need to get a new hobby as this is serious mountain out of a molehill stuff.

The Class War - them versus us

Despite being an avid follower of politics, I rarely venture on to this board. But events over the past few years has seen a fundamental shift of the political landscape of this country. In the past it was 'Labor' verses 'Liberal' with both parties having identifiable strengths and weaknesses. If it's Blue then it's responsible economic management. If it was red it was for the working man. Simplistic perhaps but a core identifiable branding of our major political parties.

I would suggest that Black (i.e. Fascist) has become the new Blue. The LNP are coming after us make no mistake. They don't care if you vote Liberal, Labor, Green or if you are one of those Orange nutters. They want our money. They stand for nothing other than re-election and the feathering of the nests of the elite of this country. In the past swinging voters would have (reasonably accurately) said that they were 'as bad as each other'.

The Black party are following Neo-Liberal policies which are underpinned by the fraudulent economic theory of trickle down economics. They've been trying that shit in America since the Reagan era and this had led to an ever increasing gap between rich and poor. It' s coming soon to a city near you. In the past some rich people manufactured things. They employed people and those people purchased their product. When this is the economic model the rich are getting rich through the efforts of the people who work for them. For the middle class, they earnt wages and were thus participating in the economy. A mass participation in the economy generally leads to better infrastructure, health, education of the nation because more people are paying tax. Middle to lower class people spend their money.

Then the elite (the plutocracy) figured, 'how can we get richer?'. The result of this question was deregulated banking, downsizing, globalisation and privitisation. If you can make a bigger profit by investing off shore than employing people all of a sudden you don't need people to be working for you, the rich no longer have a stake in us working. For the workers what it comes down to is that due to globalisation and downsizing in particular, we are now working in competition with each other. We are no longer working for a greater good of the organisation, we are watching our own arse. Employers then started on the working conditions and aren't that keen on collective bargaining. All of a sudden the working man is afraid, in a precarious financial situation. The term for this the 'Precariat', or proletariat in a precarious position.

Fear is the key. Fear is the key that develops compassion fatigue. They aren't coming after me so it's ok. Fear is the key to how the elite can get people to vote against what is essentially in their best interests. REFUGEES REFUGEES MUSLIMS TERROR WAR!! If you don't want Refugees don't bomb their countries. Have a look at what we are up to overseas. Not only are we bombing Syria we also allies with genocidal states such as Indonesia as well as Saudi Arabia and the Criminal state of Israel. I always thought we were the good guys but these days I'm not so sure. So we pick up the paper and it's right wing nonsense. Rupert Murdoch handpicked our government and our 'leaders' have been slavishly adhering to his doctrine for many years. Why is this relevant to the class war? Because why else would Bogans vote for a party that attacks welfare and social services? What's in it for them...that's right we stopped the boats.

So keep watching as the Black party undermines the social welfare net while they provide corporate welfare. Keep watching while they divest in education...uneducated people can more easily be persuaded to vote against their own interests, provided Rupert points out their enemies for them. Keep watching as our human rights reputation is dissolved, they are tying to make refugees illegal now...if we are going to stand alone against something make it against Corporate Government and not against desperate people who are looking for a better life. Keep watching while the Black party destroys the environment because dirty fuel helped get them elected. Keep watching until every shit idea the United States has ever had comes to our shores...how soon before we have privitised prisons where criminals are suddenly in demand and can raise a profit?

The Black party won't stop until the middle class is destroyed, then they will come after the upper middle class. Eventually only the elite will remain and we will all be wondering what happened to the lucky country. We've let bigotry and racism blind us to the fact that the Black party have robbed us blind. Can anyone name a single positive thing that the Black party has done? The LNP are nothing but traitors to our country. Selling us out so the very few have feathered nests and we all get covered in bird shit. Democracy has been destroyed and been traded in for an Oligarchy. Theocracy has replaced good government. We have a government that consistently undermines and targets those most vulnerable, but it's ok because it's not us and we are the lesser nation because of it.

Re: The Class War - them versus us

I would suggest that Black (i.e. Fascist) has become the new Blue...
I recall that the classic Fascists were the "National Socialist German Workers Party"
German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei

My point is that authoritarianism is not the sole possession of conservatives, but those from both ends of the spectrum can be so sure they are right that they are justified in imposing their will on others.

That said, I would have had to vote against the Liberal Party in the recent election had it remained under Tony Abbott and stuck with the 2014 budget, and extreme middle class welfare policies. I am disappointed Turnbull has had to compromise so much with the conservative wing since he became leader

I am still campaigning for more balanced policy, lobbying acquaintances inside the LCP and the ALP about the balance between real welfare needs and fiscal responsibility, and I have personally argued, face to face, with Cory Bernardi the case for supporting gay marriage and balanced economic policies. We have disagreed, but were able to keep it civil, and hear each other's case politely.

The thing to do is get active and lobby. One federal MP I knew in Melbourne made the point that what makes the difference is not petitions or organisations, which can be dismissed as a bias generated by pressure groups of ideologues, but many non-aligned individuals approaching their local members and making those local members nervous enough to approach the Ministers, as what gets anything reviewed at the Cabinet table is many back-benchers pushing the Ministers and making them nervous too.

The true Socialists of the Weimar Republic were the SPD and you know this. Also, the Black Shirts Facista were active in Italy while Hitler was talking crap in Landsberg prison. The Nazi's were as much for socialism as they were for the Proletariat, it's like saying the Democratic People's Republic of Korea favours Democracy. I also think that the rise of the Nazi party couldn't have happened without the conservative elements of the German electorate, particularly in Bavaria and Prussia. The elimination of the SA pacified the armed forces and the figurehead Hindenburg united conservative elements of the electorate who (mistakenly) believed that they could 'tame' Hitler with the help of Franz Von Papen. I agree with your comment about authoritarianism not being the sole possession of conservatives but perhaps the Nazi party wasn't a great example.

I mentioned Black because to me Liberals aren't Liberals any more. Labor, for their part are weak as piss and failed to take the opportunity presented to them in the last election. They had to go after the Blacks on a gaffe by gaffe basis, not waiting until Murdoch was doing his thing during the excessively long election campaign. It astounds me that a person as obviously intelligent as yourself fell for Turnbull's 'Abbott Lite' act. You are smarter than I am and I could see it was bullshit because the Blacks knew Abbott was on the nose. The Blacks are coming for the middle class right now but they'll come after everyone bar the elite in the future. For that they need the drooling Hansonites whipped into a frenzy to ensure they vote against what is their best interests. It's not 'conservative v socialist' or 'Liberal vs. Labor' any more. It's them versus us and the destruction of social services, tolerance, democracy and the environment is the end result of a collective of right wing nutters (including the Oranges) who aren't even trying to hide the fact that their snouts are in the trough while they grab what they can while they sit high on the hog.

I love your comment regarding activism.

respectfully,

REB

Re: US

I have theory about how the Trump presidency is going to unfold. I reckon there's a good chance he's not going to honour the inflammatory language and protectionist/nationalist policies that marked the election campaign. In fact, I'd say he's likely to turn out to be quite an ineffective and lame president that falls short what he said he'd do.

The realities of office are that he has to deal with two houses of congress, and the agenda he spruiked won't be as easy to implement with the mere stroke of a pen at the Oval Office. You might say that Trump can't afford to not implement his controversial policies, because it would piss off the masses of rust-belt disaffected middle Americans who adopted Trump as their idol and savior from a modern world they see as having left them behind. They've invested themselves, their personal hopes and dreams for a better future into his idea of making America great again. They made him, and they'll be baying for his blood if he doesn't honour his suite of promises to build the Mexican wall, kick out all the Muslims, nuke Syria, bring back jobs and impose tariffs etc. He would become another member of the political establishment, someone who promises everything but fell short, just like all the other members of the political elite.

I say Trump, unlike all other presidential candidates (and political candidates), doesn't care about what he's going to do as president. He only cares about being the president. Like all massively successful male white businessmen, it's all about the contest. Trump, Murdoch, Packer, or whoever else don't take over companies and build extravagant buildings because their family will starve if they don't. They don't need the money. For them, business is a sport. It's about winning, the thrill of the chase and getting the trophy. Once you've won the match, you can point to the trophy. You have bragging rights. I won, you lost. The presidency is another trophy for Trump to put in his cabinet and point to in case you don't think he's a really smart and super awesome guy. He doesn't want to exercise the power, because he doesn't know what to do with it, as evidenced by a campaign that focused on why you should vote for him (or no Hillary) as opposed to outlining a clear agenda for what he was going to do when he got there.

The same way that people invest money in Trump's businesses and schemes is no different to the emotional and philosophical investment that people have made in his message. Trump's no stranger in the business world to taking people's investments and burning them for his own benefit, and walking away from the mess whilst telling everyone how great he still is. Trump's legacy to date has not been about it's substance, its all about style (for want of a better word) and vanity. There's no reason to suggest this is going to change.

I can hear Trump in four year's time, having been defeated in a landslide election, answering to his angry rust-belt supporters. They'll say, "Trump, you were a shit president and a liar because you reneged on all your policies that were going to start a revolution. You're just like all the other politicians. We believed in you, and you took us for a ride, **** you." And Trump will reply with his trademark smug grin and shrugged shoulders, "Hey, guess what? I got to be the president, and you didn't. Thanks for getting me there, it was a real blast to be the most powerful man in the world."

Of course, if this pans out like this it won't address the core issues at the heart of democratic politics in the US and the exclusion of large numbers of the disaffected. In fact it'll probably exacerbate it, but that's the last thing on Trump's mind, safe in his ivory tower in Manhattan and satisfied with his most prized trophy.

Re: Grade Cricket

How did Glenelg pull off adjusting the date of their semi and therefore the final at the last minute? Do they run the show?

Now the final won't feature any Redbacks players as a Shield game is on and Glenelg get the added bonus of having Sayers and Carey playing for them against Tea Tree Gully in the Semi-Final, who presumably won't have Head as he's playing T20 for Australia.

Re: Grade Cricket

Now the dusk has settled after yesterday's Grand Final, we can reflect on what would have to be one of the most amazing performances in the history of Grade Cricket in SA. To come from wooden spooners last year to be the first Club ever to win all three Premierships in one season is still hard to comprehend.

With the merger stuff going on last year, we were basically dead and buried. We then had all other Clubs trying to pinch all our players (Kelvin to Glenelg, Drew to Kensington, Drennan to East Torrens, plus several others as well). We may as well have packed our bags and closed the door.

But full credit to the A Grade players, led by Trent Kelly, they had a team meeting last August and agreed to all stick together and pay back all the volunteers at the Club who were trying to make it survive. After Round 1, he told them all the reason he was playing on was because he knew this young group of talented players would win the Premiership. How profound that statement turned out to be!

We have played 23 games this year in all formats and lost one (due to one hour of bad cricket against Glenelg) which is remarkable. We won six out of six in One day and 20/20 games. Comprehensive wins in all finals. Only the Port semi was close, and that was the most intense game of Grade cricket I have seen, full credit to Port.

We had the best bowling line up in the comp by a mile. Spencer Johnson with his left arm quicks would be the quickest in the comp. Braeden Renshaw is hugely under rated, but lots of wise people from various Clubs rate him the best bowler in 1st Grade. Ben Williams has relished having three other pace bowlers support him after going solo last year, ended up the leading wicket taker in the comp with 33 wickets @ 16.6, every game got the breakthrough whenever the team needed it. And last but not least, Trent Kelly with his experience and competitiveness no doubt won us many games, with both bat and ball. Logan Pastyn with his spin late in the year was vital too.

Batting was massive improvement this year, Kelvin was awesome after Xmas, and Bailey Capel for a 16 year old to open in A Grade and score 340 runs was brilliant. His innings in the GF was amazing. Drennan with three centuries and over 600 runs to go with his Keeper award was remarkable. Daniel Drew went to another level this year, resulting in a comprehensive Bradman Medal win. Pat Fisher improved with over 400 runs and Carl Mickan did his bit during year too.

The best thing was 10 of the 12 in the Grand Final are West Torrens Juniors, plus Drennan and Renshaw have played all their Senior cricket here. Other clubs could take a leaf out of our book. Ironically, we now have had approaches from 4 very good 1st Grade players from other Clubs wanting to join us, how times have changed!

Well that ends the 2016/2017 season. Expect to wake up soon and it has all been a dream, but if it is all true, then we will keep celebrating for a little while yet!

Re: Grade Cricket

Great write ups above. Incredible season. The greatest achievement in the history of Grade Cricket in SA and that's before you even delve into the mess the incompetent SACA board put the club through last season. It was only a month or so ago the SACA backed down and said West Torrens and Port could continue.

It really is about the players though. And the coaching staff Harrity, Woolford and co, amazing job.

As eagles2014 said, it would have been easy for this group of players to have gone elsewhere last year. It wasn't until June that SACA indicated we would be allowed to compete this year. Can you believe that?

The first XI is made up of board members, club coaches, sponsors.

Trent Kelly is a born leader and his importance is evidenced by the last 4 years - the two he missed we finished towards the bottom. The two he played we finished in finals.

Kelvin Smith and Leigh Drennan have shown terrific leadership over the last 4 years. Smith batted for half a day (normally that would be a century for him) and Drennan to win the Hookes Medal with his century was so apt. The best keeper-batsman the club has had since Tim Nielsen and as important recruit as Wes Thomas was 10 years ago.

The emergence of Bradman medalist Drew, Johnson and Williams as three of the best players in the comp has been satisfying for those who believed in our junior program and hopefully these three along with Kelvin can be seen playing for the Redbacks sooner rather than later.

Capel has been solid in his first full season and his knock in the Grand Final should give him plenty of confidence heading into 17/18. Great experience for him to bat with Smith this year.

Renshaw, Pastyn, Mickan and Fisher are great club men. Great blokes who deserve all the success that has come their way.

Sensational. Instead of a chapter closing, this club can continue to make its own history. 160 years young and still fighting fit.

From the Tiser today:

Bone’s beef: Where have the SANFL crowds gone?
Chris McDermott, The Advertiser
May 18, 2017 11:00am

...............

The Crows and the Power have not been the magic bullet everyone imagined.

The two teams gave the competition a brief spike but it died just as quickly.

...............

.

And history is being rewritten already.
Spike? Magic bullet? Everyone ?
Rather than being the significant reason in the recent drop in crowds, the Crows and Power are now painted as would be saviours; even their presence unable to save a competition descending to irrelevance.
The fact that we predicted all this would happen if the reserves joined is conveniently forgotten. Just go to the beginning pages of the "No AFL in the SANFL whinge thread". It is all documented there for posterity. Hundreds of comments forewarning the demise to come, and dozens of Crow/Power lovers telling us that we were all paranoid.
Now they want to say that there was something wrong with the competition before the reserves joined?
Do us a favour Bone, if you want to save the SANFL, you need to be honest about what is damaging it.

At the end of the day, a change in prices, days, times, seasons, etc may make a difference of between zero and a couple of hundred extra but the SANFL will always be on life support while the AFL reserves remain in the comp and ruin the integrity of the comp, its not rocket science and I'm positive that even the pro AFL side's sheep know it deep down and they're just trolling (or more clueless than I give them credit for).

It is looking increasingly likely that the squad which only lost one game in all forms of competition last season will be kept together. Adding further batting strength would be the icing on the cake!

Re: The never ending No AFL in the SANFL whinge thread

One thing that certainly needs to change is the name of the team. The vast majority of the team are not Magpie footballers, but Power reserves. If they are going to call themselves the Magpies, then, once the Power are out of the finals, the team should be comprised totally of MAGPIE footballers, not Power squad members (Power reserves). As one player stated yesterday, we know very little of the Magpie identity, we just play for the few boys in this team for whom the Magpies means something.

I have no problem in Power Reserves players playing for Port, just that it really has to be Power Reserves, not Magpies.

Cheers

We have a right to say what we think of our competition, but definitely no right to tell a club what they call themselves.
Come on, the "Magpies" are hardly a club, they're just the reserves side for the Power.

You can't dictate what they call themselves, but really, common sense has to be paramount, I mean they're the Power reserves side. They have nothing in common with the old Magpies save the prison bar.

Re: 2017 SANFL Grand Final

It's not so much about experience, it's the climate of pro vs semi-amateur (or semi-pro).

Pro's have everything at their disposal to get ready and be prepared. Not so for the others.

This is the issue. The fktards on Facebook don't understand this as they don't have critical thinking skills.

I just ******* hope Sturt win and will be cheering them on from my couch!

Re: Finals Week 3

Lol calm down mate
Agree reg season he goes but finals he won't

See this I don't agree with. You're either trying to protect the head from potential brain injuries or you're not. The instigator having a grand final to play in the next week shouldn't make any difference to the penalty. With all that we now know... It's just a game.

Re: Andrew Bolt - is he a credible journalist?

Applying the name Bolt to the word Journalist is like calling the kid who does finger painting on the iPad a Network Engineer.

He's a typical conservative pundit. Dog whistle rhetoric to appeal to the inner demons of the feeble minded. They lap it up, he then uses that as "evidence" he has his finger on the peoples pulse. Rinse and repeat.

He is a god damn genius at molehills, double meanings, twisting words and half truth's, though.

Re: 2018 Broadcast Coverage

I am pleased to announce that SANFL is back on radio this year with 1079 LIFE once again broadcasting SANFL games on a weekly basis.

Life have been SANFL broadcasters since 2002 even getting in one game last year when the Eagles brought them in to broadcast their Eagles Community Carnival Day.

The station will be broadcasting a game every week through the season and also plans to cover the state game and all finals. Radio veteran Doug Oakley will head the commentary team.

In addition the station will introduce SANFL ONE , a one hour pre-game show and 30 minute post game wrap, hosted by myself, meaning each game day broadcast will go for 4 hours.

Life's 1st game will be the Easter Monday clash between Norwood and Sturt at Coopers Stadium, SANFL One will start at 2pm with first bounce 3.10pm.

Re: 2018 Broadcast Coverage

So I am open to ideas re the new pre-game show.
Normally it will run 1pm to 2pm before crossing to the broadcast game starting 2.10pm.

The show will be ONE hundred percent SANFL ... so what do you want included?

A bit of coverage about the magoos players pushing for senior selection from all the sides would be good.

Excellent news.

I urge people to listen in and, if possible, support the sponsors and show them people are still interested in the SANFL.

Re: 2018 Broadcast Coverage

Hope Big Phil isn't involved. Cant stand his constant Bulldogs bias. A trained monkey could do a better job.
Good job they don't play Carlton that often then...
Well, unfortunately the trained monkey is already working as the SANFL's President and Commission Chairman. If he could read the hands on a clock he would work out he was working undertime and fit in some commentary.

Big Phil does a fine job. And, at any rate, we SANFL beggars can't afford to be choosers re: broadcasting at this point in time.

Big Phil does an awesome job. One of our most passionate, hard working and knowledgeable commentators covering the league.

The league needs more like him.

Happy to confirm State Game (SANFL v WAFL Sat May 12) will be on Life FM. Finalised today.

Re: INS and OUTS for 2018

"Proven performer" was more intended in relation to his ability. If he has issues but they're no longer going to impact on your club, then I'd have thought you'd be happy at him becoming someone else's problem?

I'm trying to keep out of this conversation.

However, the one thing I will say is that the annoyance stems from disappointment at the opportunities afforded to Josh. It also stems from the fact that many of us wish we had half the talent he does and the opportunities he's had.
Football can give you so much if you choose to embrace it. To paraphrase - a beautiful talent is a shame to waste.

Yes well said. I am very disappointed that he decided not to play for us this year, just when it seemed Roy had managed to keep him engaged within a disciplined culture.

Onto his playing ability, the number 5 fitted him perfectly. The early games last year he had an over aggressive - which I sometimes took as mentally lazy (contradicting I know) - attack on the ball, which resulted in easy turnovers. By the end of the year though, he was up there with Holman in his impact, a SANFL gun who would not have surprised me this year if he had gone on to win a Magarey and another stint at the AFL if he wished.

I hope whatever has happened is a wake up and that he settles down; he has a stark choice to make. My instinct is that being offered an easy hand up by an enthusiastic and opportunistic party is not the way to go, but is the alternative to sit out a year and wallow any better.
