And you guys got Ronnie's love child with two first names - Nathan Daniel or Daniel Nathan maybe.
I know which 3 I'd rather have. Not forgetting our Jack Oatey medallist either.
Can we expect another spray from your Finance Director at our quarter time huddle this year?

Hhhmmmm an Eagles supporter telling others to look after your own backyard!!

Is this the reason why you merged because your "Backyard" was in such great order??? Or was it because you were a Basketcase????

Our backyard is just fine but thanks for asking. We've won 3 premierships in the past 23 years including 2 in the past 8 years. When did you win your last premiership.

Hhaha..
well if he does give you a spray he'll probably have to join the queue....

Well there is no way our club could afford to have those 3 players at the same time , pay them and still be under the salary cap.
Nathan Daniel is now a solid sanfl player, probably getting 10% of what you are paying Wundke or Boyd or Ainger; and as far as character and integrity goes he'd leave those other mercenaries for dead.

Wonder if "Auntie Ainger" has been to the Marion Hotel recently....?? :lol:

thanks for asking...obviously new to this league are you..? it was 1964- 50 years ago.
Coincidently that was the same year that half of your now merged team came into the league. Simply one of the worst decisions the SANFL ever made putting yet another team into the Western suburbs. Of course, it all eventually ended in tears when the going got a little tough for you and you jumped into bed with your next door neighbour. South were 5 minutes from folding in 89, but despite the fact that we were broke, and yes grossly unsuccessful, here we are still going 25 years later, still existing in our own right. :D

Dunno why Nathan Daniel's name was even brought up? The bloke struggled for a game at the Eagles (31 in four seasons) and genuinely left for greater opportunities, and has played 63 of a possible 66 for us since crossing.

If guys like Ainger and Wundke want to up and leave when the going gets a little tough and there's a bit of extra coin elsewhere, then good f##king riddance. Only want blokes who bleed blue and white to pull on our jumper.

The Woodville decision was a terrible one, i know a few Torrens supporters who walked away at merger time.

1964 was a pivotal year in SA footy!

2014 could turn out the same....

If South get the chocolates here surely they are genuine contenders that should be aiming for a deep run into major round action come end of the season

Even if South voted yes, there'd be absolutely no way in the world I would contemplate following any other side. I love my club too much.


I've been over this before, so I won't 'drone' on about it, but will try a short explanation:

1. I struggled with the 1990 merger - played Juniors @ WTFC & barracked for them from 5 yrs old in 1976.
2. As a result of the Cows being born, WWTFC sent (year after year) letters to supporters seeking Membership Money to "... keep the Club financial" - I contributed by becoming a paid-up member.
3. The Premiership in 2006 (I thought) finally made us "One Club" - up until then there was still a lot of Woodville & West Torrens supporters rather than Woodville-West Torrens supporters. Personally, I felt that Flag finally 'put the merger behind us'.
4. Last year's "Yes" vote is NOT the reason I didn't renew my WWTFC Membership - rather the way it was handled by Slaven (note spelling RB ;) ) If the Club had given the Members a vote/say (like SAFC did) & the "Yes Vote" got up (even 51% in favour) then I would've accepted it & renewed my membership & continued my support for the Club. The Club did not do this, so they lost me as a supporter - my son still supports them.
5. CDFC were too far away to attend games, so SAFC got my money - I love the SANFL, so I pay (like ANZAC Day) $14 to attend various games that involved the Cows - so I can barrack against them

I hope this explains it.
That said, I am not sure how Sunday will 'pan out' in terms of being a 'supporter' of SAFC against WWTFC... this will be the 'test' as to whether or not I can become a South Supporter (my Daughter has always been a South supporter BTW but she's only 9) or whether or not I just become an 'Anti-Cows' type attendee at SANFL games - we shall see.

I fully understand people questioning this action but one must remember that my 'true football love' (WTFC) ceased to exist in 1991, so it makes the decision a little easier to swallow, I guess.

Don't think so but I could be wrong - my memory is a bit like by Barry O'Farrell's.

Fair bit of vitriol and nastiness emerging over this game. Our 3 good recruits seem to be a problem for you Panther supporters. It occurs to me that they are not the only players to leave your club of late. Ben Warren had plenty of games left in him when he preferred to play in the country and then Norwood. You got a successful coach in Ron Fuller to try to improve but then you got rid of him as well. For the sake of a strong comp and well overdue success I hope that you are the real deal and give the Eagles a good challenge.
Verschrikkelyk!!
