Re: Best era of AFL/VFL footy

90s to early 00s. Generally attacking footy. One on one contests. Physicality part of the game. Still a handful of suburban grounds, each with their own colour/uniqueness. Not old enough to comment on anything earlier than 90s.

Re: Crows reserves supporters

went to watch the game vs centrals today. did feel weird, as i didnt really know who to barrack for. But given I have seen a lot more of the crows players over the past few years I found myself hoping they would do well, as opposed to some of the brand new centrals faces that i didnt know.

And so it begins. I'm sure benny isn't alone in his sentiment unfortunately. It's sad that the league has come to this.

Attracting a new generation of young football supporters to the league, who have grown up in an AFL-saturated market will be difficult for the 8 SANFL clubs. As a young fella why support your local sanfl club made up of young blokes you would walk past in the street and not recognise, when you can follow some of the Crows players you see on TV, the radio and newspaper from time to time...

You don't get to be a premiership captain by being a spud.

Was involved in some crucial plays late in the drawn GF, I guess that will be what I remember him for. Decent enough career. Unrelated but he helps a few good causes away from the game so I respect him for that.

Re: Channel 7 announced by SANFL as preferred telecast partn

ROUND 18
Saturday, August 23
Norwood v Adelaide Norwood Oval 4:40pm 7TWO 4:30pm



Very bizarre time slot. At the absolute very least, they could have scheduled it for 4:10pm, allowing for a 4:00pm-7:00pm telecast on Seven's main channel, sandwiched in between North Melbourne v Adelaide (1:00pm-4:00pm) and Hawthorn v Geelong (7:00pm-10:00pm).

Would the idea be to give the few dozens Ravens supporters who are keen to head to the Parade after watching the AFL game some time to do so? And in the process piss off the majority of the NFC members/supporters..

Re: The 2014 season no AFL in the SANFL whinge thread

Interesting article in today's advertiser quoting Roy Laird. Mentioning how playing the afl professionals is a real lottery, damaging the integrity of the sanfl. An example given was South played port with Port having 9 afl players, centrals faced them with 14. Also mentioned no team should have to face them with a shorter break, given their advantage of facilities and not having to work.
Spot on Roy, sticking up for the sanfl and the little integrity left.

Well said Roy. I recall prior to a decision even being made last year he was strongly opposed to the idea in Inside Footy. Basically just came out and said what the majority of us were thinking. Given he has no ties to either AFL club, nor an abition to work at either, he has little trouble finding his voice unlike too many involved in SA football.

Re: Preliminary Final - Port v South @ Adelaide Oval (Sun 14

I remember watching that final. Port leading for the first half and South ran all over them in the last 1/4. Pissed myself laughing.
Alwyn Davey ran them off their feet.

Yep, reckon the lead got out to nearly 40 points in the first half. Cracking game of footy. Davey, Thewlis and Archard were great. I still remember the roar when South hit the front through Dale Ellis, with a large number of NA and CD supporters having filtered into the oval by then.

Up until last Saturday that game was probably the most memorable in my time supporting the club :oops:

The South Adelaide Football Club advises that the following players will not be continuing in 2015 –

Frazer Dale, recruited from Carlton, 20 games, 8 goals

Todd McKay, Port Noarlunga, 33 games, 8 goals

John McDonald, recruited from Sturt, 18 games, 7 goals (23 games previously with Sturt)

Cam De Visser, recruited from Sacred Heart OCFC, 9 games, 6 goals

South Adelaide General Manager – Football Neill Sharpe said it’s always disappointing when players decide to move on.

“SANFL football is a serious competition and requires a genuine commitment and a real passion to play at the level. We’re disappointed that Todd McKay and Frazer Dale have decided to move on as we think their best football is ahead of them. Unfortunately the demands of the competition aren’t for everyone.

“John McDonald and Cam De Visser have had some injury issues in recent seasons and are at stages in their working life where they feel they need to concentrate on their careers.

“We thank Frazer, Todd, John and Cam for their contribution to South Adelaide and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.”

Rated Dale highly. Dependable by foot and very good overhead. Will be missed. The C7 commentators found it impossible to call him without using his christian name which was odd.

Both Mckay and Hourigan were highly touted as juniors and were on the radar of AFL clubs. Both now find themselves outside the SANFL.

McDonald and De Visser probably come as no surprise.
