Re: Things that give you the sh1ts

Yep, godlesness abounds because we were given a choice and the majority choose to live without God.
I would've thought God would've been more forthright in telling his human servants that they've done the wrong thing by rejecting him, like actually appearing to us and saying so, as opposed to sending sneaky messages like giving babies cancer or natural disasters or whatever and hoping that we will join the dots.

Re: SANFL Player Movements - 2015 / 2016

Yep - the AFL obviously very concerned about the impact to State League clubs by limiting to one player from any club, and having have to have played in the AFL within the last two years.

Further inspection of the fine print however reveals that both criteria can be ignored if the AFL sees fit to approve... will be very interesting to see how that pans out.

Re: Things that give you the sh1ts

We have a world of bugs. You can spray for spiders 100% of your property today. But they float down from trees and they will be there tomorrow. Over time they build up a resistance to poisons, as we build up a resistance to anti-biotics. Bugs are here to stay. I work in a nursing home and one of my jobs is to keep spider webs away. Hahaha it's like painting the harbour bridge, it never ends. And then there are bird lovers that say, You cant spray there.... Then my boss says, how come there are spider webs here... We all have to live to
gether.. Ants of any denomination, will return. More ants than humans on earth... From the moment you spray, you kill the good bugs like prey mantis..
Do you wear a mask when you use these poisons & sprays?

Re: Crows 2015

Menzel's done three pre-seasons, so by now he should have an idea of what's expected of a professional footballer. I would've thought a new player keen to impress and gain selection would keep fit, even when on leave from club duties. Going too hard and not completing a 2km run would suggest a lack of fitness.

Mind you, he has been injury prone, so perhaps he's simply injured as opposed to being a bit porky after Christmas. If it's the latter, the Crows have every right to be disappointed. By the same token, if it's the former, then he probably shouldn't be running time trials.

Terry Wogan kept Eurovision alive/relevant as a cultural icon.
I, kind of, get the feeling that had he not commentated on Eurovision in that fashion, our interest in it may well have been dead years ago.
I think you're right. The interest that Eurovision now has garnered in Australia, which is now broadcast with our own commentary (IIRC), stems from his influence. Sadly, the subtle irony that Wogan used to make the broadcast entertaining is being missed, which is the point.

Re: Why did Michael Nunan leave Sturt?

Thanks to a heads-up from mal, here's an answer from a few year's ago from a 1978 thread.
Unfortunately (for his Sturt career), he realized that there was more to life than football and in 1978 he missed several games at the start of the season while he was undertaking an overseas study tour. When he returned, Jack Oatey told Mick that he was no longer wanted at Sturt as he (Jack) only wanted players who were dedicated to the cause (or words to that effect). Nunan didn't want to leave and I'm sure he would've given Sturt his all for the rest of the season. One can understand both points of view, but in such a situation the coach must always win and Mick was off to Norwood. Incredibly Sturt club chairman David Wark found it necessary to publicly say that "During recent years it has become obvious the philosophies of Mike Nunan have no longer been compatible with the Sturt Football Club."

Off topic, but did anyone else notice the difference in commentary between Ch9 and Sky NZ in the cricket? It was like chalk and cheese. The sky boys talked about cricket

I don't know if this is made up or not. Still funny though.

In a nutshell (or a nutcase more like, to quote Basil Fawlty), a mum in England bought some lite milk from Coles by accident, and then wanted to exchange it (her kids don't drink lite milk, you see) so she took it to Woolies, who promptly refused to refund it on the basis she bought it from Coles. The Mum doesn't get why the exchange can't occur ("it's just milk so I don't see the problem") and then posts away on social media to let the world know why Woolies suck. The socialmedia-verse responds appropriately.

Re: Garry Lyon - serious mental health condition.

I'm not sure you can say Lyon 'makes a living' off of other's private lives. That suggests a level of exploitation which I don't think exists.

As Booney rightly said, part of his job as a footy commentator and talking head on Nine is to discuss the current issues in footy. That naturally includes on field stuff, but also the off field issues. I'm not aware of Lyon saying anything vicious about off field issues. He's certainly expressed his views, but then who hasn't, and isn't that what he get's paid to do, which is talk about whatever issues the Footy Show want discussed?

Re: financial projections

Not sure if it's been reported earlier in this thread, but the Eagles and Bloods made losses last year of $332,000 and $283,000 respectively. :(

I also watched a news story on Channel Nine last night (not that you could legitimately call it a 'story', since it ran for about 15 seconds and would've had no more than twenty words in the script) which highlighted Glenelg's unfortunate financial position, and in fact went as far as questioning the club's solvency. This of course followed an enlightening piece of Crows news about "the next Andrew McLeod" (whoever it was, good luck son, talk about putting the moccas on) and something about Scott Thompson (perhaps this year he'll become the oldest player in AFL history to consistently miss targets by foot? I dunno, I had the sound turned down).

It's funny that the media seems keen to jump on these 'bad' news stories about the Snaffle clubs like a kid on a trampoline. I don't recall any news stores on mainstream news media about North Adelaide's second consecutive year of $300,000 plus profits, or better still Sturt who I understand recently turned a profit from a loss last year (I stand to be corrected on that) through some savvy cost-cutting and raising funds via the selling of picket fences at Unley Oval. These stories deserve at least some oxygen in the football media landscape.

Re: financial projections

Perhaps Glenelg would still be up the creek if the interlopers had never been admitted, perhaps not. Certainly one thing would be different if Chiggy (and his mates on the SANFL commission) had voted NO: Glenelg would be facing death on its feet, instead of on its knees.
This thought crossed my mind when the North Adelaide hierarchy 'consulted' with its members in late 2013 (read: telling the membership why Bohdan was going to vote yes).

At that time I decided to accept the possibility that the SANFL was no longer 'immortal', or something that would exist in perpetuity for other generations to enjoy and for its traditions to continue. I accepted that a 'no' vote could mean the SANFL, as an integral competition in the same form and spirit as it had operated for over a century, one day might be eventually overrun and subsumed by the wave of public support that buoys the AFL competition and in particular the two AFL clubs in this state. The landscape of footy in this state has shifted significantly, albeit somewhat glacially, in the last quarter of a century. If the comp closed shop due to lack of interest, irrelevance or financial catastrophes in time, then so be it. The ride had been f**king fantastic and forces beyond mine or others' control would've spoken. Footy democracy would've spoken. If people in the next ten to fifteen years overwhelmingly want AFL and can't be bothered with the SANFL, then (sadly) that's hard to argue against.

After all, and without being too dramatic or personal, we all have to face this kind of prospect in our own lives. I didn't want a compromised competition with the Power and Crows playing the part of its life-support system artificially propping it up, in a different, mutant form than you had grown accustomed to, even if that mean it would 'survive'. You probably wouldn't wish it on your pet, or a loved one. Go out on your own terms, with dignity. As Pseudo says, better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

We now have the worst possible outcome with at least one club on its knees going towards the wall. The insult is that (a) the much promised life-support system is doing nothing to help the comp and its teams, and (b) it has proven to be a complete crock (which most of us suspected) so quickly.

Re: I need to know....

Yes.

Regulation 300 of the Australian Road Rules states:

The driver of a vehicle must not use a mobile phone while the vehicle is moving, or is stationary but not parked , unless—

(a) the phone is being used to make or receive a phone call (other than a text message, video message, email or similar communication) and the body of the phone—

(i) is secured in a mounting affixed to the vehicle while being so used; or

(ii) is not secured in a mounting affixed to the vehicle and is not being held by the driver, and the use of the phone does not require the driver, at any time while using it, to press any thing on the body of the phone or to otherwise manipulate any part of the body of the phone; or

(ab) the phone is being used as a driver's aid and—

(i) the body of the phone is secured in a mounting affixed to the vehicle while being so used; and

(ii) the use of the phone does not require the driver, at any time while using it, to press any thing on the body of the phone or otherwise to manipulate any part of the body of the phone; or

(b) the vehicle is an emergency vehicle or a police vehicle; or

(c) the driver is exempt from this rule under another law of this jurisdiction.

A 'vehicle' is defined to include a bicycle. Whilst the Rules distinguish between ‘drivers’ and ‘riders’ (with bicyclists being ‘riders’), a reference to a "driver" includes a reference to a rider, and a reference to "driving" includes a reference to riding.

Re: Pure SANFL 2016 draw

Yes I follow the crows in the afl but rarely watch them and never go the their games as I'm north 100%
The Crows are one club with two teams that participate in the AFL and the SANFL competitions. But make no mistake, it's the one club. Players from the SANFL side one week can (and do) play in the AFL side the next, and vice versa.

In essence, you are supporting two sides in the same comp at once, and to that end, you are conflicted. So when you attend a North-Crows SANFL match, are you saying that you barrack against the Crows?

I most certainly barrack for the Panthers over the Crows, hope we belt the crap out of them. I'll go to the SANFL if both my sides (Crows A's) were playing at the same time too....
I understand wcp, and each to their own. But here’s the thing I don’t get about supporting the Crows and an SANFL side at the same time.

By saying one of your sides is the Crows A's is, IMO, artificially separating the A's from the B's. These teams both represent the one club, and comprise players on the one roster. As footy fans, we support a club, an organisation that represents something, not a particular team from within a club.

You barrack for South Adelaide. Presumably you support the club across all its league, reserves, and junior teams? It would be very unusual for someone to support South's league side, but refuse to carry this allegiance to their reserves side because they also had support (for whatever reason) for Glenelg, for example. However, this is what happens when people say they support the ‘Crows A’s.’

A bit like religion, I don't get it, but everyone's entitled to their own take on it.

Re: Things that make you laugh

On "The Project" last night there was a story about Liz Cambage and her disgust at her Opals team mate posting images of herself with her face painted black at a fancy dress party, she was Kanye West at the party.

Now, I'll say it now, I don't think she was "being" racist, but it could be seen as a racist act. I'm not sure 100% of coloured people would see it that way, but it doesn't matter, if Ms Cambage saw it that way, that's her call.

But aren't we all different, would someone white dressed in Yeezy clothing not look like Kanye? Of course they wouldn't, we are all different. So this story highlighted that, among other things, we can't acknowledge that we are different.

Now it's get humorous.

The next "story" is of a hijab wearing muslim ballerina in Sydney who is making an impression on people in the dance world, the story was all about how "different" people can still make their way in this world, how people who look different to "us" can still be like "us". ( I assume "us" is white westerners, not humans, she wear a hijab that's all, she is human like the rest of us )

Is it me, or have we all gone completely ******* mad?
