    Cotch and Lids? Hell yeah. This is the greatest AA team since Bowden got named centre half back in 2006

    Seems my Brownlow bet on Jack is looking even rougher than when I made it a couple of months back, after the AA team was announced. Though there are so many quality midfielders it was always going to be hard for him to grab a spot.

    The 'if it didn't happen in Victoria it didn't happen postulate' still holds amongst the flat earth media in Melbourne. He's a chance to win it for sure.

    Yeah, there's a heap of guys who deserve to get in the midfield, it's always tough. There are some spots that you can argue about in other parts of the ground, but its very hard to say that anyone in the midfield, or on the bench for that matter, didn't deserve a spot.

    Yep, definitely. Most evident with West Coast dominating the AA team

    Redbacks lives in the 70's. Hates Victorian football with a passion and thinks Russell Ebert is the finest young prospect this country has seen.

    Thinking of taking the young 'uns Friday night but they'll just be back from school camp and the young bloke owes me 50 on Saturday morning for dropping a soda last week off a kid who went on to make 50 for the other mob. So I'm in two minds.

    One thing about AFL compared with some other codes is I quite like sitting behind the goals, gives a good perspective on the whole oval.

    Pleased Mr Burge doesn't subscribe to the "well at least you tried" school of parental coaching that afflicts so much junior sport.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    No, I'm from my grandfather's school I'm afraid. Draw my inspiration from the spray he gave us in under 12s...

    "Get in the bloody shed...."

    Team sits down after being rolled for 89...

    "In 35 years at this club, that is the most gutless batting display I've seen from any side. Get out there and bowl this mob out, or it's nothing but fielding drills at training for a month. Wake up yo yourselves."

    GAGF ****.

    Don't be telling me that doesn't work. One kid bowled his first over of the season on the weekend and it was complete ****. And I told him so. You can't mollycoddle these kids - sure it's under 11s, but it is division one ffs.

    Anyway, he lifted his game and bowled a bit better afterwards. If you think he would have bowled better if I'd said "Bad luck mate, sure you went for 19 in that over but you did your best" then you're kidding. Sport is about success, and if you are of a mindset that your kid's side gets smashed by an innings and you want to say he did well, then you're breeding failure and have no part in coaching or mentoring anyone - in sport or at anything.

    I'm only disappointed you can't get away with more public forms of ridicule in this day and age for when a kid performs poorly and lets his team down.

    You know it makes sense.
