Re: APPS Country Football

They are points if for the majority of previous season they played A Grade.
So, if I recruited you MC, for example, and you had played eight A grade and nine reserves matches, 0 points?
Yep, If I had played 8 A Grade and 8 Reserves I'm still 0 points because I havn't played the majority A grade games.
However, Im not sure you could stretch the budget far enough. But you can try! :D

Re: Adelaide Plains Football League

How do lose from 41 points up in a B grade game?
9-1 last quarter. Bizarre.

You'd have to ask one of the 25 assistant Ram coaches jammed in the coaches box at 3/4 time drinking Johnnies, ably supported by the A Graders singing "Whey hey hey, - Goodbye". :shock:

It was pissing me off at 3/4 time when I heard the singing.

Re: Adelaide Plains Football League

And...just looked at the scores 9-0.
Yowser.

To be fair to those boys on the ground, it was an extremely long match with 35 goals kicked between them, so a lot of extra time. The Rams had spent a lot of petrol tickets and Longies were coming home with a slight breeze, maybe 2 goals worth. Once the avalanche started and the crowd got involved it was too much to stop.

The big fella (aka Ronnie Biggs) that kicked 7 was great.

I heard the skipper tell the boys at 3/4 time that it was a 10 goal breeze!
He was wrong. It was only 9 goal wind! :lol:

The crowd was fantastic, best I've ever seen. Not too often you get 6 teams all barracking for you. So to all those that were cheering for us thanks for making that game an awesome experience.

Also, congrats to Mallala. Best side all year, probably deserved it. Sorry I didn't watch any of it. :D

Re: Adelaide Plains Football League

When the points system first came in 4 or so years ago, the original proposal by the board had a formula that also included losing points if your Senior colts had won a certain % of games the season prior. However this was unanimously voted out by the clubs and has never been apart of our points system.

Re: Weirdest thing you have seen on a football field

Great thread!

The weirdest thing I have seen on a footy field was in 2008 when we (United) were playing against Hummocks in a prelim final at Virginia. Probably about 5-10 minutes into the final quarter and we were down by about 5 goals and the game beginning to get away from us. As a consequence there started to be a few scuffles every minute or so, nothing too serious but the crowd were getting involved.
The ball comes towards me and over my head towards our forward pocket, so I turn around to chase it and remember hearing behind me the crowd going nuts, so I naturally assumed there must be a bit of argy bargy going on. Anyway keep competing for the ball until a Hummocks player clears it from defence where I remember turning around and looking up and everybody around me including opposition all stopped and gone WTF?

A streaker had ran onto the field and as he was jumping in the air he tripped over himself and knocked himself out cold when his head hit the ground. He was out for a few minutes and had to be stretchered off the ground, one of the trainers threw their hand towel over him for some modesty. :D

Blessing in disguise for us as the break in play helped and we kicked 5 or 6 goals really quickly and hit the front. Then sadly a Hummocks player kicked a goal basically on the siren with the ugliest floater ever seen. :(

Re: Adelaide Plains Football League

Have association squads been selected?

T.Stribling

That's the squad ;)

Not sure how old he is, but it'll be interesting this year to see how many over 28 players decline to represent the APFL. I can see this new rule disappearing next year if the APFL can't field a competitive side.

I think it is a great rule and should be there to stay. What does it matter if the association doesn't field its strongest side. To me the whole point of association footy is to give the youngsters (under 28) exposure to a higher level of footy. Nobody remembers 2 weeks after the event who won or what the scores were.

From the Tigers I would be surprised if anyone other than Pym, Hood, Beard (U21) and maybe Shimmin made the squad.

Re: Adelaide Plains Football League

Three red cards shown on Saturday in a match umpired by the Umpire's Coach/Co-ordinator, Steve Bawden, who introduced the red/yellow card system.
If that's his interpretation on what warrants a red card, then he's going to have to maintain it across his whole umpiring group and throughout the season.
It will be interesting to see whether these reports are thrown out (I think a red card is automatic suspension, not sure), considering they were made by the central umpires.

The fact that Steve Bawden is the Umpires coach/coordinator is disturbing in itself. It was disappointing to see him umpiring in such a big match on Saturday while BJ was allocated the senior colts and reserves. IMHO BJ is the best umpire in the league so why on earth isn't he umpiring A grade every week? Bawden is a control freak that makes every game that he is involved in about himself - he over-rides decisions of his fellow umpires and quite simply appears to have a poor understanding of the basic role of the umpire in a game of footy. Every footy lover I know would prefer him to miss a few rather than over-officiate and dominate the match like he seems determined to do every time he's in charge.

Well said Donkey. The greatest thing about what you have written is the fact you are a supporter of the WINNING side and still feel this way about the game on Saturday. =D>

Re: Round 7 Adelaide v Port Balaklava Sunday 1.10pm

meh
I look at comments such as these and on one hand, I get the whole "No AFL in the SANFL" thing but then we wouldn't have an opportunity like we have this weekend to showcase some of the state's best football talent in our back yard.
No other club in the history of the SANFL has ever had the initiative to cater for the regional crowd in this area by playing a match for premiership points in Balaklava.
We're chuffed to have it, even if it isn't a "traditional" SANFL club competing. We've put in so much time and effort into preparing to host it and we're looking forward to holding it on Sunday. Jam your apathy.

Well said there Onsong.

What are you hoping for crowd wise Sunday OnSong? There were 5,000 odd last year at Clare, however Tex was playing so would add a few extra supporters plus Clare is a bigger area. I would think anything over 3,000 would be a great result, however not sure if that's around the mark for what you are aiming for?

FWIW I will definitely make the effort to get to the ground and have a look for sure.

Re: Things that make you laugh

Soooo...you're the semen expert, FC.
Brilliant.
You know that's going to get some good use.

hardly an expert - I'm sure others here with more experience than me.

Im not going to call myself an expert, however when I was at Uni I would work weekends and holidays at SABOR near Clare. This is a place that doesn't collect Bull Semen however it does collect Pig Semen. My job during "collection" time was to bring in the boars from a list of pre-orders (each pig had a number) and take them into the "collection" room. I would then get the next one on the list and put it in a holding pen next to the room and wait for the Boar to finish* and take it back and repeat the cycle. There were 2 collection rooms so it was reasonably busy.

Basically, they had a plastic Sow which the Boar would mount and there would be another guy in the room who would help the Boar shoot it into a filtered container. The guy had to grab the pig dick and squeeze tight for about 10 minutes until the pig had finished. If anyone has seen a pig dick you would know that it is kind of like a screw*. Apparently a trick to make it more comfortable was to use your left hand as the dick was "left hand thread". I was asked if I wanted to give this a try which I refused. I was happy just transporting the pigs to and from their pens.

There were about 150 Boars at this place, however some were used more than others, depending on the farmers preference and bloodlines etc.

On weekends all I had to do was clean out their pens each day. Would take around 4 or 5 hours each day and could do it at whatever time I wanted to as long as it got done. So Saturdays I would do it first thing and on Sundays whenever I felt like it. For the weekend work I got $41 an hour to clean shit which in 2001 for a Uni student was and probably still is pretty good coin.

Were there magazines there with pictures of naked pigs in them too?

Na, but when they had finished they had a relaxed look on their faces!

Re: ASX

bump

anyone been active lately, where's your interest been?

I was thinking of selling off my Nufarm shares (gone up 30%) and re-investing in something with a history of better dividend returns.

Would have loved to have got on James Hardie last year.

Normally buy a parcel to add to my collection each year. Last year I bought TCL (Transurban) and looks to be a wise move so far. Year before I bought CDA (Codan) was a stupid move, chasing dividends which were about 10%. About a week after I bought them at $1.50 ish they announced new dividends which were scaled right back and they dropped by 50%. For some reason I have still hung on to them and they have come back a little. Luckily it was the smallest parcel I've ever bought as I only bought $1,500 worth.

Just recently took part in the NAB offer which was a no brainer to get more shares with no brokerage. With these being DRP that should speed things along with them nicely.

Im buying a decent chunk of a private company in the next month, so if there is anything left over I might look at buying a small parcel of something. Probably look at a utility maybe DUE (Duet) but I will need to do some more research first. ANN (Ansell) has been on my radar the last couple of years and I keep overlooking it. Probably should have another decent look at that again too.

I'm not much of a seller, in fact never sold so I'm obviously buy and hold so looking for relatively stable shares.

Just think that the 4 best U/21 players (1 from each assoc) should be an automatic choice for zone squad, plus the next best 4 or 5 or however many they wanna look at.
Pre-requisite for zone should be to play association, otherwise they are just picking on names which is hardly fair to the lads that did play, knowing that the next squad has already been picked.

Re: Restaurant & Pub Reviews

Took the Mrs and kids to Semaphore on Saturday. Ate at the Palais. $63 for Pint of Teds, Pint of Cider, Kids raspberry, Garlic Bread Pizza (6 pieces) Nuggets and Chips, S & P Squid and Chicken Parmi. Always a bonus when they bring the nuggets out first for the kid.
Mrs had the squid and was very happy with it. She rated it as one of the best she's had. I had the chicken parmi and it looked bigger than the advertised 300gm size. Parmi sauce was right up there with the best I've ever had, and the snitzel was not oily at all from the cooking. Chips on the side.
Service was pretty quick, only half way through my pint when it came out.
One of the best pub meals I've had in a long time, I would give this a solid 8.5 out of 10!

You think? When the Boons were little I hated having them finish their nuggets etc and then get all ratty and bored while you're trying to eat yours.

The Palais however do do good food. Was there a month or so back for some drinks and shared a dip plate, had some pizzas as well. Agreed.

Yeah my Missus hates it when the kids food comes out first lol .. Doesnt bother me, but she really gets a bee in her bonnet about it

Funny cause we are the opposite. Kids are hungry at feeding time and are better behaved after a feed. We much prefer their meals come out first. Guess thats why we all have different footy teams cause we like different things.

We went there a couple of years ago for a work Christmas function. Can't remember it enough to give a rating, other than to say there were no complaints from any of us who ate there.

Re: Balaklava Cup Day

One of my favourite days of the year. Our footy club is having a tent this year so will go in there. Luckily we have been put in a ripping spot (about the 5th tent down) so weather won't effect me too much. We have paid the extra $600 to get TAB in our tent so there should be no need to get too wet!

Tip for the day: Lets hope the girls all wear white tops! :D
