sorry for picking on you, I do it because I care
Yeah, not sold on Cyril and Nic Nat.
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.

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.

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.

"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."
That **** doesnt work anymore. Need more sports science.
Get your kid a laptop
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.
